Queen Dawn proclaims recognition of towns by the Crown

Discussion in 'UO Chesapeake' started by Tancred RedStar, Nov 23, 2009.

  1. This evening at the weekly Chesapeake House of Commons meeting, EM's Dudley and Vladimere once again spoke at length about the town recognition program. They clarified a bit here and there, mostly regarding town banners, teleporters and retraction from participation in the program for abusive behavior. The discussion was then extended further with the announcement of the classification system for player communities by size(and the possible consequences!).

    After they departed, a Royal Ambassador by the name of Tavalia Zodok arrived and bid all those present interested in petitioning the Crown for recognition to come bear audience with the monarch herself. Every soon made way to the throne room of Castle Britannia in Britain and in short order Queen Dawn was heralded by Tavalia Zodok.

    After much fanfare and excitement, the queen called forth those who would represent their towns allied to her. She then passed out books for each representative to petition her for official royal recognition.

    Quills were twirling as each town's petition was written up. The queen then called for the petitioners to line up and be received by her. I was lucky enough to be the first in line and was soon called to approach her and got to petition Gyldenfeld first as a Chesapeake community for recognition by the Crown.

    Others soon followed, each in turn received by the monarch until all the towns had been presented. The queen read through the petitions, fingering through the pages until she had finished and made a decision. By royal proclamation, she announced the recognition of the towns by the Crown.

    She then called forward each of the town leaders to stand at the base of her throne and to bow to her in a mark of allegiance to her and to then stand as nobles. She then gave a brief benediction and soon exited the room to attend to other matters of the realm.

    I've included my journal from tonight's historic events below if you wish to read in detail what and how events transpired.

    You are now under the protection of the town guards.

    EM Dudley: Not directly
    Tolerance: lol
    Elijah Cross: *laughs*
    Tolerance: i thought turkey
    EM Dudley: However Mesanna discussed placing some items etc. etc. in the future
    EM Dudley: And this may play into it
    EM Dudley: But that's not firm
    EM Dudley: It will effect Events though
    Yoshi: a little Im drinking tea
    Tancred RedStar: size of invading force, hehe
    Tolerance: oh

    Winfield: *raises hand*
    Tancred RedStar: thank you
    EM Dudley: Well
    Tolerance: did u raise u'r hand
    EM Dudley: You know what they say
    EM Dudley: The bigger they are, the harder they fall
    Niva the Savage: *shudders in fear*
    EM Dudley: Anyone else?
    Winfield: For a kingdom, empire, city-state, does that need to be one location, or multiple villages?
    Amon: *raises hand*
    Winfield: Such as PaxLair Statehood is three cities/towns.
    Winfield: Just wondering that a Kingdom may be more than one village/town
    EM Dudley: One collection of structures
    Winfield: *nods*
    NANOC: In one area?
    EM Dudley: *nods*
    Tolerance: wow
    EM Vladimere: *makes note to remove Strawberry Milk Shake from Luna Bank*
    Cax Gavigan: What if these structures are a bit scattered due to terrain?
    Xzebog Pitmuck: nerg!
    Cax Gavigan: If they are loosely conglomerated...
    Cax Gavigan: Does that factor in?
    EM Dudley: Will be taken into consideration
    Tolerance: where the heck is there a location for player's of that size toplace's that many house's
    Tolerance: yea sorry typed the same ??

    Niva the Savage: *makes note to avoid GG during future events*
    Morpheus Mardox: lol

    Amon: Far away from the DWC lands
    EM Dudley: now
    Gareth: *Raises hand*
    You see: Sari-Liane [D^T]
    EM Dudley: There will need to be some common theme among the structures
    Niva the Savage: Niva joking Human Mardox
    Sari-Liane: *Coughs8 Sorry I'm late peeps
    EM Dudley: House sign, design, banner, etc. etc.
    Morpheus Mardox: good good niva
    EM Dudley: Something to designate which structures are part of the town
    EM Dudley: And which are not
    Elijah Cross: Name on sign count?
    EM Dudley: I would prefer some graphic if that's not too much trouble
    Cax Gavigan: Sigils or objects unique to these locations...
    Gareth: I like my tavern having the tavern sign. *smiles*
    EM Dudley: A name will definitely help
    EM Vladimere: Visual would be much better
    Tancred RedStar: You feel sober.
    Cax Gavigan: Would that be viable?
    Elijah Cross: Well the sign could be a problem...
    Cax Gavigan: Excellent.
    EM Dudley: Doesn't have to be a sign
    Elijah Cross: What of different estblishments
    Winfield: We used red mailboxes outside for a while, that worked well.
    Elijah Cross: That's what the signs are originally for.
    EM Dudley: Some common thing
    Winfield: *nods*
    Elijah Cross: Alright.
    Morpheus Mardox: I see alot with reward banner
    Morpheus Mardox: and common house sign
    EM Dudley: Reward banners work really well
    Morpheus Mardox: or just name in the sign
    Ozog Giantfart: aarp
    EM Dudley: Especially since you can have your town banner match it
    Morpheus Mardox: aye!
    EM Dudley: And the same with the teleporter banner
    EM Dudley: That's up to you guys though
    Tancred RedStar: *raises hand*
    EM Dudley: yes Tancred?

    EM Dudley: I'll get to that
    Tancred RedStar: ok
    What do you want to use this on?
    Tancred RedStar: You feel sober.
    EM Dudley: Anyone have anything else about the levels and the common theme?
    Gareth: I do
    Tancred RedStar: it sounds great
    EM Dudley: Yes Gareth?
    Tolerance: na
    Gareth: I am not sure if it was asked. Do you have to raise up to the next level say from town to city
    Gareth: or can you remain a town?
    Morpheus Mardox: good question
    EM Vladimere: No requirements
    EM Dudley: You can use whatever designation you like
    EM Dudley: So long as you qualify for it
    EM Dudley: So if you have sixty buildings
    EM Dudley: You can still be a Settlement if you wish
    Tolerance: now doe's the queen approve?
    Gareth: Pick settlement. Go back to the "Wild Wild West"

    Tancred RedStar: do you mean like the cloth part or the whole structure holding the cloth part?
    Gareth: Ctrl C as well.
    EM Dudley: You should also include the Item IDs
    EM Dudley: The entire structure
    Tancred RedStar: oh, so it could be quite grand
    Morpheus Mardox: Structure?

    Gareth: More like 30x30
    EM Dudley: You'll get the signpost

    Gareth: What if a town and another towen pick the same banner and color?
    EM Vladimere: Town War in Fell
    EM Vladimere: lol
    Morpheus Mardox: Hehe
    Sari-Liane: Sounds like my idea of bargining
    Gareth: Can they bring other towns to fight for em? hehe
    EM Dudley: Hmm
    EM Dudley: If that happens we will handle on case by case basis
    Gareth: brawl at the Hall
    EM Dudley: But there are a ton of designs
    EM Dudley: So use Inside UO to build your banner
    EM Dudley: Send me a picture, with Item IDs
    EM Dudley: to [email protected]

    EM Dudley: It cannot block House placement
    Gareth: Can it go on a road?
    Gareth: *smiles*
    EM Dudley: Include sextant coords or X/Y coords
    EM Vladimere: The best place is a road and possible the middle of the town
    Gareth: Ugly Templars big roof blocks middle of town. :)
    EM Vladimere: that was a sugguestion
    EM Dudley: Got it?
    You see: Xzebog Pitmuck [MUCK]
    Sari-Liane: Oi! Shut it
    EM Dudley: Any questions?
    Sari-Liane: *Grins*
    Tancred RedStar: one question
    EM Dudley: Aye?
    Tancred RedStar: it can't block current or future house placement?
    EM Dudley: any house placement
    EM Dudley: Mes will let you know if it needs to be moved
    Exavior: did you all want us to reschedule your tour of cimerian pass
    Tancred RedStar: I mean, if it's in the middle of open land, it could technically block future placement
    EM Dudley: So pick a spot, if it needs to move, we can address that on building day
    Gareth: *Raises hand*
    Tancred RedStar: okk
    EM Dudley: Gareth?
    Gareth: Oh nm adress on building day. Pirates want it on the water heh
    Tolerance: the spot might be uneven for a house>but great for a banner
    EM Dudley: It definitely can't go on the water
    Tancred RedStar: lol
    Winfield: *raises hand*
    Gareth: darn
    EM Dudley: Because you can snatch it up with a boat
    Tolerance: hehe
    Gareth: Worth a try
    Gareth: Oh
    Gareth: Shhh...
    Cax Gavigan: *Raises hand*
    Gareth: :)
    EM Dudley: Winfield then Cax
    Winfield: Does the location of banner have any effect on the "spawns" that might occur in the town?
    Winfield: As to where the attacks would come from?
    EM Dudley: Nope
    Winfield: *nods*
    Exavior: *raises hand*
    EM Dudley: Cax?
    Cax Gavigan: In regards to the Pirates...
    Exavior: did you want to reschedule the tour you all missed on thurs?
    Cax Gavigan: Is it not possible to have a banner suspended in mid-air perhaps so that it cannot be molested or
    Cax Gavigan: become an impediment to traffic?
    Cax Gavigan: Just thinking maybe that should be a consideration...
    EM Vladimere: What tour was missed on Thursday
    EM Vladimere: Did I miss a tour?
    Cax Gavigan: As it surely would ingratiate players who wish to pursue naval settlement.
    Tolerance: thought we did all the tour's
    EM Dudley: I know water placement is out
    Exavior: we had e-mailed dudley about a tour of the town before the auction started
    Exavior: for our grand opening
    Cax Gavigan: How about a port perhaps?
    EM Dudley: *checks email*
    Exavior: last thurs
    Cax Gavigan: Do you think could be doable?
    Tancred RedStar: *hic*
    Mach: Hail
    EM Vladimere: I came to the auction and stayed for a few minutes
    EM Dudley: That is something we can evaluate on a case by case
    EM Vladimere: it looked good
    Gareth: Didnt they do that on another shard?
    EM Dudley: Mesanna will know better teh building constraints
    Tolerance: any chance to let Cax finish his question first ?
    Elijah Cross: Aye, loved the auction last Thurs, Ex
    Exavior: t5y
    Exavior: ty
    Cax Gavigan: Nah I'm quite fine, thanks for hearing me out.

    EM Dudley: We will let you know
    EM Dudley: Anything else before we move on...related to banner placement?
    Morpheus Mardox: Aye
    EM Dudley: Yes?
    Morpheus Mardox: Does it have to be with the tele or can they be seperate
    Morpheus Mardox: like banner at beginning of town
    Morpheus Mardox: tele in center
    Tancred RedStar: You feel sober.
    EM Dudley: not sure if return teles are being added
    EM Dudley: Mesanna is still thinking on that
    Morpheus Mardox: ok
    Morpheus Mardox: ty
    EM Dudley: Ok
    EM Dudley: Next topic...the teleporters
    EM Dudley: And how to get them
    EM Dudley: Basically what will happen is that in order to receive a teleporter
    EM Dudley: A town must be recommended by three other towns
    Morpheus Mardox: a boost for diplomacy!
    EM Dudley: Indeed
    EM Dudley: This is something we are trying to keep shard wide, as they are doing the same thing on Cats
    Exavior: but no towns ar established yet
    Tolerance: oh really
    EM Dudley: *nods*
    Tolerance: copy cat's
    EM Dudley: *smiles*
    Tolerance: lol
    Morpheus Mardox: hehe
    EM Dudley: So once you get your banners
    EM Dudley: You can request audience with the Queen
    EM Dudley: and make your recommendations for other towns
    EM Dudley: to get the teleporters
    Morpheus Mardox: Are we limited in our recomendations?
    Niva the Savage: *raises paint covered hand*
    EM Dudley: nope
    EM Dudley: Niva?
    Winfield: *raises hand*
    Niva the Savage: (No Disrespect to the PaxLair Statehood intended)
    Niva the Savage: (But what if the nominating towns are related)
    Niva the Savage: (such as the PaxLair Statehood)
    Niva the Savage: Niva done!
    Hidan: I don't get the question
    NANOC: ?
    EM Vladimere: 2 towns are intermixed
    Morpheus Mardox: She's asking if its ok if the toowns who nominate ya are allies i think
    Hidan: ah
    Gareth: Like Kijustsu Keys nominating Kijustsu Anei
    Gareth: *smiles*
    Morpheus Mardox: lol
    Morpheus Mardox: I wouldnt call it wrong by any means
    EM Dudley: Hrm
    Tancred RedStar: sounds more like a formality than a challenge
    Morpheus Mardox: Aye
    Niva the Savage: (In the case of the PaxLair Statehood
    EM Vladimere: The purpose to get other towns to vote for you is allaince
    EM Vladimere: become friends
    Elijah Cross: *quietly excuses self*
    Tancred RedStar: I dont think it would have to be a formal alliance
    Tolerance: uhm
    Lin Min May: all stay
    Niva the Savage: (As I said, no disrepect meant)
    Gareth: Whats an alliance?
    EM Dudley: The idea is that this is a means to make sure towns are teleporter worthy
    EM Vladimere: you vote for me I will vote for you
    Lin Min May: omg
    Lin Min May: never seen so many here
    Morpheus Mardox: Hail :}
    Niva the Savage: (but they do have 3 seperate cities/towns
    Sari-Liane: So is the statehood classed as seperate towns now?
    Sari-Liane: I thought it was all one big.. well statehood
    Phoenix: We have always been
    Niva the Savage: (and would only need one other town to nomiate for teleporter
    Niva the Savage: (if they decided to work it that way
    Gareth: The PaxLair Statehood has always been seperate towns with its own government.
    Gareth: Sorry Niv
    Phoenix: *nods over to Gareth*
    Winfield: Statehood has always been 3 towns.
    EM Vladimere: We are making this much more complicated then it was intended to be
    EM Dudley: If that's the case then it'll just be that way
    Tancred RedStar: they each always had their own mayor
    Ozog Giantfart: aarp\
    Tancred RedStar: not necessarily
    Se'an Silverfoot: Towns have come and gone in the Statehood
    Tancred RedStar: what of Joe Blow sets up Road SHack and wants a teleporter
    Tancred RedStar: this way he will have to get some real respect/support from other towns
    Sari-Liane: Ok, so what I think Niva is saying...
    Winfield: Anomally in much of this is our Statehood, which is not really a topic for the banner system.
    Sari-Liane: If its all one big alliance... are they pemitted to vote for thier own towns?
    EM Dudley: If they are seperate townships, with their own government and residents I don't see a problem with
    EM Dudley: it
    EM Vladimere: let niva explain what she was saying :)
    Gareth: Makes sense.
    Exavior: if three towns have to reconize yours but they do not like the guild then what?
    Niva the Savage: (Sari-Liane explained it)
    EM Dudley: Then you don't get the recommendation from them
    doopliss: mach!
    Nyx: not a good call
    Winfield: *raises hand*
    Exavior: so you are sol?
    Gareth: Exavior i know your town already has one.
    Gareth: *smiles*
    Exavior: lol
    Exavior: i speak for the others
    Exavior: and for pvp towns/
    Exavior: just a question on my mind?
    EM Dudley: If there aren't three towns to recommend another for the teleporter
    Nyx: *question*
    EM Dudley: Then that's probably a good indication that they don't deserve it
    EM Dudley: For whatever reason
    Exavior: lol
    Exavior: ok
    Tolerance: aww
    Tolerance: lol
    Gareth: So make sure you are popular!
    EM Dudley: I mean think about it
    Gareth: Sorry village were out! kekek
    Tolerance: haha
    doopliss: ak death robe
    Nyx: Who are the 3 starting towns?
    EM Dudley: If you are a greifing, PKing, ne're do well
    EM Dudley: I doubt anyone would want to visit your town anyway
