As a reward for controlling a town...

Discussion in 'UO Factions' started by imported_OldAsTheHills, Dec 28, 2007.

  1. Faction's thieves should be allowed to lockpick the many different
    trapped and locked containers inside that town to obtain some random
    amount of silver. This means that each chest may be open once by
    a Faction controlling thief to gain this silver, and only while the thief's
    Faction controls the town. Once all the chests are openned by Faction
    thieves they may not be openned again until the town changes control.

  2. I like it!

    A simple change that makes town ownership mean just a little more.

    Would it be more fun to steal silver from the opposing factions towns?
     
  4. I definitely thing there should be benefits for enemies in towns owned by opposing factions, but I'm not sure how to implement it without people *not* wanting to own the towns. You know how people are these days. [​IMG]

    I certainly thing you should get an increased silver reward for killing somebody in a town controlled by opposing factions. It should be more difficult to enter a town of enemies and kill somebody than your own town.

    I think it's critical that reg vendors are also restricted to only the faction who owns the town. Non-faction and opposing factions should not be able to access them at all.

    I love the idea of a faction town taking on the theme of the controlling faction, for example if SL took Britain then the streets would become black stone etc...

    Anyways, I'm rambling, so I'm going to go to bed. [​IMG]

    To adress the problem of players NOT wanting to own a town things would have to be such that owning a town or two would be benefical to the owners. Such as Sergul'zan_SP suggests the town could take on the ruling faction's theme even allowing mutiple allied monsters to roam the streets and the exclusive use of the vendors, perhaps if you die in a town owned by your own faction the skill loss would be 10 mins instead of 20....and yes make it doubley difficult to enter a town ruled by another Faction but make it worth the risk beyond restealing the sigils and not just for the thief. I like the idea of stealing silver from locked containers in an opposing faction town but say you get a bonus above the double silver count if you kill an opposing faction member in a town his/her faction owns.:gun: something for ever faction member

    COM doesnt have a town ???

    this has nothign to do with were your base is LOL Minax and SL never had a town around there bases.

    This has to do with controlling towns and getting benefits for controlling towns or harrasing them.

    when you controll a town you get vendors, guards, horse breeders, ability to place traps in the towns?

    what more couls you want, how about the timers going back to more than 6 hours so you can actually enjoy these perks.

    Yes, I was simply thinking of the formerly lovely Magincia, now a desolate wasteland.:(

    He is refering to the inability for Magincia to regenerate cash in order to place guards and vendors. Since there are no NPC's in Magincia on some shards, there is no way for that particular town regenerate $$ for that stuff.
