    Folks I will be resurrecting this idea since I had to put it on hold for my family emergency. For those of you that may not remember... this ties into the idea brought up by Valis to use SILVER as our own RP currency.

    I had posted an IC notice here:
    http://vboards.stratics.com/uo-catskills/238132-%5Bic%5D-now-hiring.html

    And some of you had established an interest... if I remember correctly here are the applications I had gotten so far:

    - Rianna (Flower/Plants Shop)
    - Izznet (Flower/Plants Shop)
    - Aedon (Book Shop)
    - Sindee (Armor Shop)
    - Ravven (Armor/Imbue Shop)
    - Pandora (Inscription Shop)
    - Jade (Furniture Shop)
    - Amroth (Jewlery Shop)
    - Mare Jade (Shoe Shop)
    - Bianca Solderini (Fine Cloth Shop)

    If anyone else wishes to put in an "application" please do so. I will be trying to make Monday nights (rather than Thursdays) the market day. Let me know!

    Pandy, I rarely play right now, so a shop would be a bit difficult for me to maintain. I think I will have to withdraw at this time. Best of luck with this project.

    Yes, they can OR they can sell whatever else. It doesn't "have" to be a crafter.

    For example, you could go and buy a bunch of cloth, dye it all in various colors and set up a "Fine Cloth Shop". It would be just the same as Ravven selling leather armor sets that she crafted herself.

    You have the option to be creative with your role play.

    That'd be an easy one to stock if you had a fisherman.

    Those of you that wish to be part of the RP Market, let me know if you will be available and ready for Monday night's grand opening. Shop managers will be given a salary of 10 silver for the day up front so that you can also buy things from others.

    Remember its not so important WHAT you are selling as much as it is HOW you sell it! Its about promoting RP interactions and character development in a bartering setting, rather than your regular tavern setting. Literally, you could go buy a bunch of cloth, dye it, and sell it as "Fine Cloth" --- which is what Bianca is doing. Or if you do wish to sell your trade, like imbuing services or whatever, that's perfectly okay as well! So get creative with it!
