Within reason, yeah. Some items (like the cart) might take more than one unit, or take more than 1 turn if you only have 1 unit, but otherwise, you'll get what you want.
If you try to do something stupid like "flood the field eight feet deep with mining picks", I'll veto that.
I'll probably also make it a requirement that, in order for a dollamancer to craft more than one doll a turn, he'll need a dedicated artisan for each additional doll after the first.

Breathairia knowing of city locations already, neither is needing hiding. And speakings of wanting gifts for offering peace is sounding better in pointy ears every turn... unless elf king is making crushing of Tenebris work. So Queen is, perhaps, needing to keep talkings going for getting of fancy Breathing presents, and is knowing that keeping from peace for lengths is best, yes? And then once Ix has enough of tiny presents and wants true prize, Tenebris and Ix will make with other crushings."
The Queen chuckles. "Indeed. We started the demands with the return of all cities, plus 100,000 shmuckers in reparations. We'll argue for several turns I'm sure, bickering back and forth until some 'reasonable' compromise is made. The problem as I see it, though, is that even while bickering, we're still in cease-fire, so the elves are getting what they want.
"As to maps, we could probably provide you with a decent amount of information on the elven cities to the East of Breatheairia, but the ones we know best are the ones furthest from their capital. Discuss the matter with my envoy when she arrives.
"Now, Yuri, I hope you'll indulge me. We Ixians have a fondness for games and tests, and there's one in particular I'd like to pose to you. We call it the Bene Guess-it Rite
. There are many variations, but the one I challenge you with is this: I'm thinking of an amount of shmuckers that I would be willing to freely give to your side. I'll allow you to make a single request for any amount of shmuckers. If your request is 'close' to mine, I'll grant you whichever value is higher - yours or mine. However, request a value that is too high, or too low, and you gain nothing. I cannot even tell you what constitutes "close", since that already conveys information about the value to a clever one such as yourself. What number you choose will tell me much about you. How you choose that number, if you wish to share your thoughts, will tell me even more." She smiles, and folds her arms. "What is your response?"
