    Mesanna says: we are wonderful
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: i wanted to ask
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: how will multiple vendors work with the new gold system?
    Mesanna says: what do you mean multi vendors
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: the gold on each account is to be seen by each toon correct?
    Mesanna says: Bleak is typing
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: sorry if i am confusing you... trying to figure out how to say it properly
    Bleak says: All character gold will be available to the account
    Bleak says: per shard

    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: how does that look with multiple vendors
    Mesanna says: are you asking how to pay a vendor?
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: is it based off whats is your bank?
    Bleak says: So you have an account balance for each shard
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: ahh that answered my question, ty for your help
    Bleak says: when you place gold from any character into your bank it will be placed in that account
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: ahh, so if its on a vendor
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: it is not seen
    Lord SupSoc Inc. says: its only once you put it in the bank
    Bleak says: correct. So when you claim the gold it will go into your account

    Mesanna says: hi Vic
    Vic says: first, thanks for all that you do. my question is on currency conversion
    Mesanna says: ok
    Vic says: so lets say i have three accounts, and one stores 500 gold in a house
    Vic says: one has the same on a vendor that he rents in luna
    Vic says: one has 100 mil in the bank
    Mesanna says: all different accounts?
    Vic says: how do each of those scenarios get handled?
    Vic says: correct
    Mesanna says: its done by account
    Mesanna says: until the gold or checks are put in the bank they are not added to the system

    Vic says: ok, so if i have 500 mil in a house
    Mesanna says: in checks?
    Vic says: it will stay as 500 mil in checks?
    Mesanna says: they will stay in check form till you put them in the bank Vic says: i see
    Vic says: so rumors are that duped checks will go poof too
    Mesanna says: yep
    Vic says: is taht true? i am sure that in 12 years, i have gold that is illegit
    Mesanna says: yes sir
    Mesanna says: who do you know you have duped checks?
    Mesanna says: how sorry

    Vic says: i dont, i just read stratics and believe everything there
    Vic says: so i know that everything is duped :)
    Mesanna says: not sure I would believe everything I read all the time
    Mesanna says: if you have concerns I will be happy to address them outside of this
    Mesanna says: just email me

    Mesanna says: you also
    Andrasta says: *smiles* Good Evening
    Mesanna says: hi Andrasta
    Lord Kyronix says: Hello
    Andrasta says: I have 2 quick questions
    Andrasta says: I am wondering if our citizens could please pick whatever trade deal they would like
    Andrasta says: and still remain with the same city
    Lord Kyronix says: Here's the thing about picking your own trade deal
    Lord Kyronix says: As opposed to the way it works now
    Lord Kyronix says: If we wanted to allow players to be able to pay some price, whatever the resource for that price
    Lord Kyronix says: may be, we could easily do that. And that's essentially what allowing a full selection of buffs from
    Lord Kyronix says: the trade deals
    Lord Kyronix says: However, the spirit of the Governor/Town system was an attempt to get people together

    Andrasta says: tthat would be awesome
    Lord Kyronix says: To rally in their cities and increase the level of interaction between people
    Lord Kyronix says: Because that's when the most fun and interesting stuff happens

    Andrasta says: that would only make them more loyal
    Andrasta says: they wouldnt have to leave their city to get another deal somewhere else
    Lord Kyronix says: Well the expectation is that if you want a different trade deal you'd speak with the person who
    Lord Kyronix says: Picks it, which is a push for the Governor and the citizens to interact

    Andrasta says: its hard to make everyone happy with only one choice
    Lord Kyronix says: This has worked well in some spots, but no in others
    Lord Kyronix says: So there's a balance we need to find in allowing freedom of choice

    Andrasta says: can we try it?
    Lord Kyronix says: But also not just making it an arbitrary buff getting mechanism
    Andrasta says: pretty please?
    Lord Kyronix says: In the future we hope to address the Governoships and that is certainly a topic
    Lord Kyronix says: We'll reexamine come that time

    Andrasta says: part 2
    Andrasta says: thank you
    Andrasta says: is about the gold on the townstones
    Andrasta says: will we ever be able to spend it on improvements and events?
    Lord Kyronix says: We've been building a library of town additions
    Lord Kyronix says: You may have seen them on other shards
    Lord Kyronix says: A jail in Britain, a market in Trinsic

    Andrasta says: oh they exist already?
    Andrasta says: how do we get access?
    Mesanna says: some are in the library
    Lord Kyronix says: As this list expands we hope to automate it and then you'd be able to use town funds to buy the
    Lord Kyronix says: Petition the Crown at a Governor's meeting

    Andrasta says: i have done that for a few years now
    Mesanna says: also if you have a design you would like to add please let us kmow
    Andrasta says: and have had no answer
    Lord Kyronix says: What have you tried to get done?
    Andrasta says: i have proposed the same thing a few times over my four terms
    Lord Kyronix says: And that is?
    Andrasta says: i will write in to Mesanna and try again
    Mesanna says: send me a design
    Andrasta says: a meeting place for New Magincia
    Andrasta says: we have our events in the streets as we have few buildings left
    Mesanna says: we will look into this further
    Andrasta says: thank you i will send one in
    Andrasta says: thanks for taking the time with us
    Mesanna says: most welcome
    Andrasta says: have a good evening
    Mesanna says: you also

    Mesanna says: Are you still typing?
    The FAMILYofWAR says: just asking basically
    Mesanna says: but that is something we are always aware of
    Mesanna says: not sure I have a specific answer for you

    The FAMILYofWAR says: are you looking for loyal players, or just new players...done
    The FAMILYofWAR says: question
    The FAMILYofWAR says: is are you actually looking at subscriptions from a marketing point of veiw
    Mesanna says: We look at all these points every day
    The FAMILYofWAR says: ....100 players who will play for 10 yeara is better
    Mesanna says: and yes we would love to have both types of players

    Mesanna says: hi Doc

    Doc Holiday says: hail all. multi clienting -0 people running multiple accounts at once...not looking for a ruling here
    Doc Holiday says: i am genuinely curious as to your take on the subject
    Mesanna says: I have already made a statement on this
    Mesanna says: Multi clienting was put in the game by Supreeme
    Mesanna says: a while back so no that is not illegal
    Mesanna says: BUT

    Doc Holiday says: would you rather limit how it works or move to make it easier?
    Mesanna says: if you are doing this we can get you for macroing if you are not at your keyboard
    Mesanna says: everyone knows its easy to see who is doing what

    Doc Holiday says: i run 6 accounts, and if i am logged into game, i am normally logged in on four of them
    Mesanna says: ok
    Mesanna says: make sure you are there with them then

    Doc Holiday says: so your default assumption is that multiple accounts equals illicit activity
    Mesanna says: that is not what I said
    Mesanna says: I do not assume anything

    Doc Holiday says: again, only asking your opinions on the subject as a whole
    Mesanna says: I am just saying that players that multi client
    Mesanna says: if they are macroing
    Mesanna says: they can and will be actioned
    Mesanna says: if a GM catches them
    Mesanna says: unattended
    Mesanna says: sorry

    Doc Holiday says: macroing can be done just as effectively on one account as on several
    Doc Holiday says: the question was not about macroing
    Doc Holiday says: it was about your opinions on multi clienting
    Mesanna says: ok so I already answered your question then
    Mesanna says: multi clienting is not illegal

    Doc Holiday says: lol, if you think so, then ok :)
    Mesanna says: what is your question then
    Mesanna says: if that doesn't answer it
    Mesanna says: maybe I misunderstood you

    Doc Holiday says: what is your opinion on multi clienting in up
    Doc Holiday says: *uo
    Doc Holiday says: again -0 not looking for a ruling
    Doc Holiday says: we know its legal and can be exploited
    Mesanna says: you are paying for the accounts you should be able to play them
    Doc Holiday says: fair enough. i just hate that every time"multi" is mentioned -0 macroing come up immediately
    Mesanna says: *nods*
    Doc Holiday says: that sends a message as to how you view them and how the community does as well
    Doc Holiday says: thanks for the time and effort you guys rock. go get a beer :)
    Mesanna says: thank you
    Mesanna says: lol

    Mesanna says: we are great
    Shane McCulloh says: I just wanna know if gear is going to change in the upcoming expansion, new properties? Splinter changes? Anything like that?
    Bleak says: Good
    Shane McCulloh says: Cuz I'm in the process of piecing together suits and whatnot, and don't wanna spend my gold if there's changes coming
    Shane McCulloh says: And I figured since everyone else got up here and asked their selfish question, I'd give mine a go as well.
    Lord Kyronix says: There won't be anything wildly revolutionary
    Lord Kyronix says: That would effect your suit building
    Lord Kyronix says: We will have two new armor types however
