  2. What, exactly, constitutes a 'township'? Is this something decided by UO staff, or the players or what?

    I haven't compiled all the information since its so fragmented. Once I have it all I can give you a better copy.

    "Some critics say"

    You just need to get a bunch of houses together and call yourself a town. This x amount of houses = this type of label. Send in a petition, then you get recognized and you can design a hip and cool banner. Show up for like two or three summit meetings, then blow them off. Act like you're going to do allot of events and community work then do nothing in your town at all. Wahlah! You have yourself a Chesapeake Player Run Town.

    Not bashing on the process just letting you know what some critics say.
    OH and PS... this is why my tongue is in a jar. *Grins*

    Here is the information I have been able to dig up.

    *Disclaimer*
    The information provided is taken from news reports, shard meetings, emails and application process. The information provided is not approved by EA/Mythic.

    Application
    Location:
    Government:
    Established:
    Current Leaders:
    Active RP Groups:
    Town Guild:
    Guild association:
    Establishments:
    Historic Storyline places:
    Events:
    Policy:
    Rp Guidelines:
    What we offer and do in the community:

    Recognition of townships will be as follows
    one to four structures you are a Settlement
    Five to ten you are a Village or Hamlet
    Eleven to Twenty you are a Town
    Twenty one to Thirty you are a City
    Thirty one to Fifty you are a Kingdom/Empire/City-State

    Settlement status changing
    Growing in house numbers
    Decreasing in house numbers
    Size of monster invasion force

    There will need to be some common theme among the structures

    EM Dudley
    But remember. Just having a house does not qualify you as a "Settlement" The idea is to build community with this so you'd better be doing something for the community with your one house.

    EM Dudley
    Oh If you get greifed because of the teleporter. It is harassment and you can page a GM.

    EM Dudley Email
    There is no requirement that the banner must have the designation of settlement, town, etc. etc. on it, however should that designation be a part of the text requested on the banner it must fall within the specified guidelines previously outlined.

    Future Events
    Townships are being encouraged to sponsor contestants in future events
    These sponsored contestants may be eligible to gain valuable non-tangible rewards.
    These rewards would help you gain audience with the Queen

    Rolled Parchment
    Though the basics are:
    It is good for one spawning session on your enemy
    These orders cannot be used to grief
    The spawn will not last past server up
    The spawn will not be placed in the middle of an event (such as an auction, etc)

    And to answer a question that was asked in email -
    Mesanna is not going to destroy the banner of a town that is defeated during township fighting.

    1. Scrolls are the property of the possessor. How one obtains the scrolls is of no consequence to the Crown.

    2. Scrolls will only be accepted from the Township leader or their appointed ambassador to the Crown.

    The nature of the dispatch orders will be made clear before long, but don't count on your crafters not being targeted simply because they are crafters...if your crafters safety is a concern perhaps you would want to ensure their safety by posting a guard or look for future dispatch orders that enable the user to call upon defending npcs.

    Town Event Books
    A book can be locked down on your banner for upcoming events
    These will be locked down two times per month, on the 1st and 15th
    Place any books, including red leaves into mailbox
     
  6. It seems to me that this is really only available to RP guilds. Rather disappointing as a fel guild who *doesn't* RP could be just as active in the community and other events.

    Oh well, just a thought.

    Interesting thoughts! I would love to see statistics on the activity levels in the various "towns". I know that Torchwood lost their banner when they left Ter Mur, so loosing status is possible. Perhaps periodic reviews would be a good thing.

    I guess you have to ask, "Is the banner here to recognize the town or was the town organized to receive a banner?"

    Torchwood was abandoned by Gunga Din. He made the decision to leave torchwood.

    Em Dudley roleplayed it with the Queen Ambassador on its removal.

    I hope that clears up some policy issues for you.

    Am I correct in assuming that once you get the banner, it stays unless you request its removal as Gunga did?

    So really there *is* no incentive to do anything once you receive the banner if that was your only goal?
     
  10. I wish they would consider other factors, rather than just the ones listed.

    I Suggest you ask that question in the EM forums for clarification. I cannot provide a official answer on that.

    That is just the information I could dig up. For official information I suggest asking the EM in the EM Forums.
