    Here is the information you would need to submit your area as an official player town. All information should be forwarded to Mesanna: [email protected]



    Size Requirements and Associated Titles

    • 5-10 Village/Hamlet
    • 11-20 Town {similar in size to Cove, Buc’s Den}
    • 21-30 City {similar in size to Skara Brae, Vesper}
    • 31-50 Kingdom/Empire/City-State {Similar in size to Britain, Trinsic}
    Other Requirements Necessary

    • The Prospective Town must contribute to the Shard’s overall Community.
    • The Prospective Town must petition the Crown for Sanctioning. [Though Communities may exist in Ter Mur, Queen Dawn will still be recognizing them]
    • The Prospective Town must have some binding factor defining it’s member buildings. [Same House Sign, Marker of some sort on buildings like Banners, similar house designs or a theme to designs, etc.]
    • Cannot claim portions of existing NPC Settlements as portions of their town, though if it borders you may patrol those areas. [Meaning If your community was outside Trinsic's walls you could not claim Trinsic as part of your City. You could try to enforce your cities laws in Trinsic although you would be subject to all flagging/guard activities.]
    ** Please note that although the Crown will be Sanctioning Communities this does not mean they will have to follow or abide by common laws against Stealing, Murder inside their Townships, each will be able to govern itself independently, Sanctioning is simply a means to establish Diplomatic status. These rules are subject to Change.

    I'd say Safe Haven is really close to Kingdom status, trouble is there are so many non active players with spots there that you could never get the house signs changed over.

    How exactly will this work?
    A. Mesanna shows up and looks around the houses, then declares it a town?
    B. Mesanna doesn't show up, but declares it a town anyway?
    C. Mesanna shows up, and demands to meet the owners of every house in the area?
    D. A town deed vendor shows up, and the shard descends into chaos?
    E. The Harrower shows up, and kills everyone?

    My biggest regret is that this didn't happen years ago.
    I have to wonder what suddenly caused this to hit the top of the 'to do' pile.
    If we'd had this years ago, Wintermoor might still be around, Iantown would be less of a ghost town, etc, etc.

    Still, at least it's here now.
    So's a picture of Wintermoor that I've been working on.

    Ah, those were the days... Knights all over the place, Vampires demanding tribute, taxmen demanding taxes, Friends of Beasts demanding fewer tamers, etc, etc. *goes into daydreams*

    If anyone has any screenshots that might help me fill that little white gap in the middle, please let me know.

    BE CAREFUL IF YOU CLICK THIS LINK!!! The full size image is BIG!!!
    (well, it was. Then Photobucket decided to resize it for me. The original, once I can find somewhere to put it, is 15mb in size)

    :) Ah memories of a Knight Commander shouting at me, that my big white marble Wintermoor vendor home in row 2, did NOT match with the Py Lethius gray stone attire required of all buildings in Wintermoor. I told him I matched the snow, and threatened to put a PINK PAGODA in Wintermoor ifn he did not let me keep the white marble ! :)

    *adds a small tiny smelly Mo'gluk orc hut, in that first row far left*

    :)

    PS. I think my Hughes had his 10 x 14 'hot tub home' in the far right upper corner next to the chalice home back then too, that Aeric yelled at me for building! :)

    Ghost houses is not the only problem with Safe Haven. We are also different guilds living there. I wish this did happen a year ago, when TDO was trying to take over the town. Now we only own a few houses.

    How many do live in Safe Haven now and how many would like to get together and try to make it active igen. We will need a new mayor and some rules.

    For the ones who are to young to remember Safe Haven, I can tell, it was once one of Sieges PvP spot. It did have several good shops, we had duels on the road, we had red player guards to try to make justice.

    We had bazaars at the large guard fort.

    I really would love to see this guard fort made a centre for the town.

    That's why I did choose the place for my fairground design.

    Sadly my design did not win. Some npc vendors and a bank npc would really help the town. I don't want guards there, the factions towns are doing ok without guards so Safe Haven would be fine too.

    In my opinion, a community or town ship should not necessarily be dependent upon all being in the same guild. I know this will not be the case in Iantown.

    I wonder if this is just adding a "Title" to the house sign... or if we'll be able to customize an "area of influence" (IE. Guards, Vendor pricing, stables, bank, etc. etc.)

    Cause the latter would be great. The bigger the city, the more options available.

    I somehow fear though... that the former is what's in store.

    On this, we agree, Drax.

    Had to throw that out there. I sometimes feel that many think you and I disagree all of the time. That would not be accurate. *tips hat*

    hey drax, would you be interested in putting barter town in your minoc towers house name? lol i think youre the only person within the btown borders who isnt in THIEF. figured it would be worth a shot asking, i know you said you didnt wanna sell that tower because its grandfathered.

    Don't know what's up with Quantum but, this is what I did...

    1. Fill out application on Quantum's EM website.
    2. If you meet the minimum requirements he meets with you in town so you can give him a tour.
    3. If that checks out, design a banner.
    4. Quantum then gives Mesanna a tour and all info.
    5. Mesanna makes final approval.

    I've been stuck on #5 for a month. Never heard back.

    Yes, I consider my establishment an extension of yours. I've even tailored it to your theme as best I could. Hopefully players use it as a rune-library....

    and besides, I am the lord of your small town... after all ;)
