    hey everybody!

    Since it is a little difficult with the VVV system making most towns battle-zones from time to time, I already heard that a few governors do not want to run again.
    So here my question:
    Who is running for what city?
    I am already setup as candidate in New Magincia!

    Can't speak for Victim, but I'm pretty confident that he'll be running again for Vesper. In the odd circumstances that he doesn't. I'll run for Vesper.

    Just my .02, but from an RP perspective, no true citizen of Britain would cast a vote for a known Pickpocket, especially one of such Legendary status...just sayin.

    Bah, anyone and everyone should vote for me. Why? Because I "promise" not to steal from anyone in my city. There are plenty of other locations to find marks...la

    I'm planning running again for Minoc. Pretty sure I only have like 4-5 people/citizens :[ If anyone else would like a shot at it, I'm cool with that. If not, I will continue to run the SSI unless somebody would like something different.

    I will be running again in Vesper, but I would like to see them come up with a way we can delegate the power temporarily to another person. That way we can avoid a repeat of last term . . .

    Not running. VvV has nothing to do with that decision. I will support Sarah of L-H in her run for Trinsic.

    Nope. But if you're spending much time in your home city, you're bound to go Orange anyways. :)

    LOL, is their a way to know if you are orange? I've always gotten attacked by other players just because they feel it's an easy kill with no worries about a murder count. But I've been getting attacked recently for no apparent reason.

    Reminds me of my perma grey days, but back then you could suicide yourself and rid yourself of the grey...I believe you can't do that if you are orange.

    Oh and I haven't entered the S|S into the VvV system (yet?)...la

    you go Orange if you heal, attack etc. a VvV player or you sit in a battle city too long. the only way to rid yourself of the affliction of Orange, is to wait out the 8 hr timer, or be killed by a VvV player.

    you need to drop about 60k iron ingots into the loyalty crate beside the trade minister, or its about 100k boards, do not remember how many fish-steaks though. you will be able to run for Governor. it only takes about 4k ingots from 0 loyalty to vote though.

    Is there an automated way to know how many trade quests you've run? I started running them last night and got to Respected level. I know I probably ran at least 15-20 last night, but it would be nice to have somewhere to go to see the exact number.

    On side note, is anyone working on camping? LOL, I swear every other SoT I received when doing those quests was for camping.

    On a second side note...I checked out a few vendors and it looks like most SoT run for about 10k per .1 of skill gain, is that different for some of the more desired skills? I got a few good ones I'll throw on a vendor like EI and Tactics (1.0 on each) but want to price them under current market rates (since we need to get this economy under control)...la

    Only problem is, if you price them under current market rate, some will buy them and resell them :(

    It's a start. If people know they can get items for less than the gougers, they may wait...or they'll pay more if they aren't patient. I will only price my goods as I see as a fair market value. If someone buys them and sells them for more, so be it...la

    10k per .1 on SoTs is a good average base price. The more desirable ones, I have seen go for more, but if you're looking for a fair price, I would make the desirable ones 10k per point, and the crappy camping and taste ids cheaper. I try to price things at a level I think is fair, but not so low that I'll get hurt feelings if I see someone else get way more

    That's the beauty of playing a thief (granted these were earned from trade quests) :) Most of my loot is attained via stealing skill, I never have hurt feelings if I find out I got a low price...la

    There are titles obtained by doing so many quests. You can tell if you have 25 by using your context menu, Open Titles Menu, Subtitle, Rewards and seeing if you have any listed. I forget the numbers associated, but Trader is 25, Exporter is 50 etc...

    I would never pretend to buy someone's vote URL or in a game. I thought it would be fun to run for the office.

    That being said it would be funny to beat a player who has attacked me on site since I've returned...la

    You honestly are a wealth of information to returning players. It looks like they have made some interesting changes....not at all bad but they need more.

    I was thinking of running for New Mag as Morgan need a little challenge, but then again, he do an ok job and I would not have the time.
    Look forward to see who will win Britain, good luck to your both
