    I attempted to do some polling in game for what the Citizens of Minoc would like as a Trade Deal but the poll box only allows 2 choices so it was slow moving. Ive decided it might be easier and faster just to poll here on stratics.


    If youre not a Citizen of Minoc i politely ask you not to vote!

    I voted Bardic, it's helpful. But I would be ok with Merch if that's the way the vote goes.

    I actually voted for Merchants myself. I think another city is doing Bardic but its up to the faithful citizens of Minoc!

    I'm disappointed that you didn't employ a binary search algorithm using your two choice poll.

    Inefficient, tsk tsk tsk.

    I don't see the "Give 2 million to Wulf: Because he wants it" option and am thus unable to vote appropriately.

    As the novice bard i should vote for Bardic Collegium. And as the new citizen of Minoc i have no other choise, but to follow the masses.

    Ill close the poll about 3pm EST tomorrow. Its looking like the majority of members want Bardic +1 Faster Casting and Merchants +2 Mana Regen. If the numbers continue to stay pretty even i will alternate the trade deals starting with the Deal that received the most votes.

    Thank you Citizens!

    I would love to see these 15 Citizens of Minoc all show up at the bank with their titles.

    Sounds like a party.

    Pants optional, I presume?

    Congrats citizens!

    I have activated the trade deal between South Barter Town(Minoc0 and The Bardic Collegum! After this deal expires we will alternate to the Merchants Association then continue to alternate between the two until the city is broke!

    If you would like to see the trade deals continue longer please help out by donating at the stone!

    What are trade deals? I gather that all citizens benefit from some mod, but what is the cost? I don't know what powers a governor has and what each mod might cost. How long does one payment for the mod cost? Does the payment increase based on number of citizens? How long does this mod last? How does the city replenish its funds? Why are we willing to deplete the funds for such a weak mod value?

    gonna answer these in the same jumbled mess they were asked in.

    Buffs from the town stone. the cost is 2m per week. you have to add the mod daily by visiting the town stone. price never changes. mod lasts 1 day. replenish city funds by citizens donating at the town stone and we get small percentages when people buy town banners and such. why? because every week someone says "hey gooch where is our trade deal?" so i sped up the process by posting a poll on stratics.

    Small shards like Siege shouldn't cost that much. This is one tiny power an EM should have, the ability to once a week, click the stone and lower the price of a trade deal. This is in response to anyone that might say the code can't be rewritten just for Siege, no it can't, but things like that can easily be manipulated as needed. Just like the ridiculous Alchemy NPC at the Sea Market. He does not work correctly, takes forever to respawn Salt Peter and could be tweaked by hand if anyone other than me actually gave a crap. And yes I've emailed GMs multiple times and even made an Ask the Devs post which got ignored. /end rant
