    Hello!

    Thanks for looking. This is an idea i had to help generate money for the towns and i wanted to hear what others thought.

    The idea is to have each city have a couple of vendors that only citizens would be able to use. NPC vendors like Hairstylists, Body Sculptors and even Tailors. The Hairstylist can provide all the same options you could find at the normal Hair Stylist but also in each city perhaps a special town specific hue could be made available for a price. Same with Tailors give them perhaps a Robe, Half Apron, Sash or Cloak that displays their city title for a price. A portion of the gold paid could then go directly to the town stones to help provide funding for trade deals.

    People love vanity items and pixel crack. So give it to them but at a cost and allow that cost to fund the city stones.

    That might work, if they're not able to be transferred then all the gold would stay within game. Vanity sells, if it is something that were to have a durability/no repair (Not sure about insurance) it could also help act as a gold sink, as eventually unless left in storage for fights even pvm it would decay and disappear.

    Oh ya for a gold sink this could work as well. Perhaps have the Dyes expire after 30+ days so they have to be reapplied for an appropriate price. Perhaps cloaks embroidered with "Citizen of [City]" or whatever your current title is can be purchased and have durability so they can break or disappear. Making a gold sink that could get rid of excess gold in game, help the cities grow and give players the pixel crack they crave so much!

    Not a bad idea indeed,n what if it were somehow tied to the tradedeal?Tailors association d spawn the clothes vendor,which I find a whole lot more interesting then the 1% bump on resists.Im sure each tpe could easily be associated with a variety of vanity items.
