Stigmergy, usually used on simple problems, can be applied to more complex ones by encoding them in the agents' environment. We show how stigmergic agents can plan over a hierarchical task network, a resource-oriented dialect of the TAEMS language. Our results reveal an important distinction among HTN's.
