    At the most recent HoC we discussed the future availability of attainable additions to one's township. This thread is where you can place suggestions/desires to give us an idea of the direction to drive the events and related content.

    A few thing to consider...

    NPCs will not be placed at any addition. The function of a specific NPC can be preserved, but the actual NPC will not be added. A good example of this would be the stables we added. The stables still work, however there is no NPC stable master.

    No banks. Period.

    Nothing built should be so huge or outrageous that it blocks movement or housing.

    Here is a list of the guilds that have potential for offering attainable additions, please post your suggestions below:

    * Guild of Arcane Arts - Alchemists and Mages

    * Society of Clothiers - Tailors and Weavers

    * Bardic Collegium - Bards, Musicians, Storytellers and Performers

    * Society of Cooks and Chefs - Cooks and Chefs

    * Order of Engineers - Tinker and Engineers

    * Guild of Healers - Healers

    * Merchant's Association - Merchants, Innkeepers, Tavernkeepers, Jewelers and Provisioners

    * Mining Cooperative - Miners

    * League of Rangers - Bowyers, Animal Trainers and Rangers

    * Society of Smiths - Blacksmiths and Weaponsmiths

    * Society of Thieves - Beggars, Thieves, Assassins and Brigands

    * Warriors' Guild - Mercenaries, Warriors, Weapon Trainers, Weaponsmiths, Soldiers, Guards and Paladins

    *Sons of the Sea - Fisherman's guild

    *Livery Guild - Stables

    A permanent, non-moving healing station would be a great addition to most townships.

    I know that there are wondering healers, but it seems at times that they wonder quite a bit and can be very hard to find at times.

    I agree completely. Healers should probably be the first thing that gets looked at becuase of how important they are. Not to mention you guys wouldn't need to move in some random wandering healers everytime you wanted to have something going on in a township.

    Santiago from The Sons of the Sea could offer a quest to townships for 50,000 snow crab to be delivered by Oct 31st 2011 in return the township would receive a Mermaid statue to be placed within township limits (Ice sculpture dyed the Sons of the Sea Color and renamed)

    And/OR by a township winning X amount of tournament they would receive a statue and as they continue to win tournaments the color of the statue would change. The number of tournaments does seem to be high to achieve the different colors but this is something that is made to last a few years, not a few months.

    1-3 Tournaments Sons of the Sea Sash Color
    3-6 Tournaments Shadow Granite
    6-9 Tournaments Copper
    9-12 Tournaments Bronze
    12-15 Tournaments Gold
    15-18 Tournaments Agapite
    18-21 Tournaments Verite
    21-24 Tournaments Valorite

    The statue would be engraved with the amount of tournaments a township has achieved. The Sons of the Sea would be responsible for maintaining the statue such as repairs etc BUT they would charge a fee depending on the amount of tournaments the Township has won. As you win more tournaments the fee goes down but a minimal fee will always remain should a township become inactivate. If the fee is not paid the Sons of the Sea will repo the statue and place it on the grounds of the Hall of Victory.

    1-3 Tournaments 2,000 Snow Crab/20 Stone Crab every 4months
    3-6 Tournaments 1,750 Snow Crab/18 Stone Crab every 4months
    6-9 Tournaments 1,500 Snow Crab/16 Stone Crab every 4months
    9-12 Tournaments 1,250 Snow Crab/14 Stone Crab every 4months
    12-15 Tournaments 1,000 Snow Crab/12 Stone Crab every 4months
    15-18 Tournaments 750 Snow Crab/10 Stone Crab every 4months
    18-21 Tournaments 500 Snow Crab/8 Stone Crab every 4months
    21-24 Tournaments 250 Snow Crab/6 Stone Crab every 4months

    The Stone Crab MUST have the name of an active citizen within your township (This would be in place so players don't just buy crab/lobster from vendors and it will increase the chance for the Sons of the Sea to get a 200+ stone crab weight on display)

    I like the jist of what Gareth was getting to, but what is the likelihood of getting a dock?

    How about tasks to maintain ownership of that dock? Something such as conducting some kind of haul from one township dock to another?

    How about a major effort from the community as a whole to establish serpent pillars in Tokuno? as well as shifting between Trammel and Felucca?

    Warriors' Guild - Mercenaries, Warriors, Weapon Trainers, Weaponsmiths, Soldiers, Guards and Paladins

    (Half asleep but the idea just jumped into my head so I'm writing it down)

    The Royal Guards could be part of the Warrriors guild and as members from township enlist in the Royal Guards they would begin to earn merit points like every one else but have the opportunity to also show umm... Inhabitant/Citizenship papers and register where they are from. From the merit points they earn they can count towards a townships over all Merit points. X amount of points gets you a Township Alert bell continuing all the way to a look out platform.

    Thats a "Platform" that goes in a tree! [4][x][4][!]

    [4][x][4][!]
    [4][x][4][!]
    [4][x][4][!]
    [4][x][4][!]

    Now you aren't blocking movement or house placement because its in a tree!! unless you all added tree houses that I'm unaware of :lick:. If the townships trees are very few or to far out of town this platform could be placed over a rock or Crystals (Malas) and its support [] corner wall piece could go on the rock since our characters cant walk over rocks but they have mastered how to gate travel :coco: it wont block movement and for RP fun you can earn one that has a spy glass mounted in the center or mini boat cannons or Harpoons mounted on a stump or something on a platform?

    So as players from township become more active in the Royal Guard *Whispers* and become more interactive in EM storylines from going on missions...but shhh dont tell them that D&D They can earn little fun playforms...OH and maybe a rope ladder to get on top and umm...a umm... :sleep2::sleep2::sleep2::sleep2:

    Perhaps a combined effort to include the Merchants.

    Some good ideas thus far here, I think anything added that requires the EM to keep track of it's elegibility will be troublesome for the EM.

    I like the idea of a recruiting station for the RBG in the towns. the Alarm Bell is also a grand idea, if only it could ring with every attack or even em event would rock!

    Some other ideas for additions without much thought on how or which guild they might come from:

    City Walls: Quest to attain and upgrade
    Ports: ie Docks are a must! Woot!
    Street Signs: directions signs pointing that "city a" is to the east etc.
    Street Lights: Light up the night!
    Arcane Circle: Bonus circle like Brit attainable through quest
    Parks: perhaps a fountain and benches like a city park perhaps even
    upgradable through quest or community collection with like
    Statues etc. Kinda like the lil areas we did around reward hall for
    plant deco contest. Each town could design thier own!
    Crafter Platforms: Like maybe a lil area similar to Maginicia vendor plots
    that hold a forge anvil loom etc for crafting
    City Shrine: Rezzing!
    Trash Cans: nothing like clean streets!
    Water Wells: we all love sparkly clean refreshness!
    Vendor Caravans: Caravans that look like Gypsy ones in ish but would
    but with no npcs placed kinda hard there
    Inns/Camps: a log off area thats immediate like an inn or camp safe for
    travelers that may not know people in the specific cities
    Banks: OOO banks banks banks a no no but boy would we love them!
    Stages: Already mentioned above
    Town Criers: No idea how'd they work hehe
    Town Stone: Similar to Faction Town Stone where one could hire guards
    to protect thier town! Stretching here...
    Bulletn Boards: Not so much a bullentin board like inside a home but a
    board or wall of sorts where EM's can hang wanted
    posters, event lanterns etc. More advertising for thier
    events means more attendance hopefully!
    Banks: Oh yeah, already tried that one....
    City Stockades: Execution stockade area, guillotine, big axe, lil shackle
    stage

    all for now, will dwell some more later......

    A catapult

    A catapult that will launch you ten spaces randomly by double clicking it. So we can launch the Goblins and Savages and maybe launch eggs at Daria's house or launch drunken Librarians *Hides* Using the Dev/EM/GM ability that pulls characters to you but instead would send your character somewhere.

    Or you could have it point towards the Castle Throne Room, Hall of Commons, Other side of the world, Abyss Entrance, whatever yall want... maybe to send bad apples to Jail 10

    Condemned Pole

    Allows players to throw darts/daggers at a player like a dartboard.

    Maybe a giant umbrella to protect from all the "orc poopies" that are likely to be flying around soon. Especially if we can get some food stalls.

    I like where this is going. I also like the idea of having to do something to obtain such additions.

    It would be nice to have music play when someone is within the area of the township banner or the entry way to the township. Each Town can choose their own song to use that sets the mood of their township.

    Like if you dont want someone to come to your town, you can pick the Luna Bank Music to start! LoL

    Grrr....I'm giving in.... Have them offer Ice cream Parlors....Ugh
    I don't want to loose Ice Cream Privileges in Luna :-(
