Fuzzy:  Smaller Settlements Development
Note: this thread is semi-IC and semi-OOC.  IC is nice, but feel free to use OOC if you need to.

This thread covers all Midmarch settlements EXCEPT Tusk and henry's Holdings.  Thi incorporates

  • Ringbridge
    This town consists of two districts and a military outpost (Bastion) guarding the bridge across the shrike river.  It is open to  investments of all sorts, but is particularly interested at Military developments that can be located at Bastion.
  • Oston
    A one district town it is almost full -  however,  Oston welcomes  the development of farming or ranching Hamlets as secondary settlements.
  • Vallai Estates
    Feyfalls and Whiterun are currently both villages with limited potential.  However, one (or both) of them is likely to develop into a small town very soon.
  • Marik Metals
    With holdings at Ironkeep and New Dawn and a patent  that controls trade with the Sootscales.  There are limited development opportunities at Ironkeep, although New Dawn has greater potential.
  • Silverton
    A newly developed village just outside Tusk, which is very convenient for city access.
  • Old Keep
    This, as yet, unnamed keep south of Midmarch will be developed shortly.  While it isn't part of the province, it is supported.

My employer, V&A, has reached an agreement with Safiya, mayor of Feyfalls. We will be stationing a serai and a mule train in Feyfalls. Mostly for local trade, but we hope to expand it as a leg to a Tusk/Restov Trade Route.

Alanna sits casually, a mirthful smile on her face as she nods to each of the other representatives. She was, as usual, wearing a quite flattering ensemble; a simple green dress that matched her eyes and contrasted beautifully with her red hair, cut tight to show off her curvy figure and exposing ample cleavage.

"Friends, it is with great pleasure," she says as she stands up, "to announce that New Dawn has made it through its first winter unscathed and ready for expansion. To our surprise and excitement, a large deposit of gold was found not far from the site of New Dawn's tavern, and I am happy to report that construction of a mine has already begun. With this additional work, we expect an influx of personnel, both workers and transients, and as such Marik has authorized the expansion of our tavern to a road house."

She takes a moment to pause and smile prettily to everyone in attendance, "Given our favorable location and the newly found gold deposits, we have high hopes that New Dawn will flourish here in Midmarch and want to offer an opportunity for early investment to those with the foresight to see our grand future." She smiles once more and nods to everyone before taking her seat again.

Hargrym stood up "We would like to expand the stoneworks to bring in mastercraftsman.  With the increase in demand from all the building going on we need more space and better working conditions."


Ooc: Looking to expand to a mastercraftsman shop.

GM says this is in Ringbridge  :)

The Dwarf addresses Alanna, "Aah if you don't mind me asking what sort of investment oppurtunity are we talking about?  I have a few more of me clan looking to move to Midmarch and we might be able to come to some arrangement."

Alanna smiled at the dwarf, "Well, as we are a growing village, I could imagine a stonemason such as yourself could find ample work if one were to invest in a workshop. I would think similar trades such as leatherworking or carpentry would also be in high demand. Of course, with our mine being built, I'm sure a shrine or holy house dedicated to Torag would be a welcome sight as well," she added with a small wink.

OOC:  This is getting confusing.  Lesson learned, I will make smaller development threads next time.

Analysis to date.

  • V&A are buying the Searai in Feyfalls from Safiya.
  • Dom's Stoneworks in Ringbridge is allowed to expand.  {This gives +1 econ - in this instance Ringbridge will cover the social costs. Good job Valaria isn't here :P }
  • Lutz will build a Great Shrine at New Dawn (+1 Loy, +1 Stab)

Cyrus  consults the notes that Val wrote for him, before responding to the halfling.  "Well ...  we can absorb the social cost of developing a road house, but we would expect a contribution to those costs, if you expect to develop it further ..."

Lord Cyrus are there plans to improve the road to Varnhold?  Also what of the lands to the south, along the Gudrin river do you have plans to explore that are? Hargrym asked respectfully.

Cyrus considers for a moment, then answers the dwarf, "Well.  The road runs pretty much all the way up to Varnhold's borders already.  After that it becomes Varn's responsibility.  I don't think Lord Henry is looking too far south at the moment, although I can't be sure of that.  My interests, of course, lie more with the areas close to Ringbridge, and I hope to extend our holdings into those areas in the next couple of years."

"Aye we are interested, but will need to discuss finances before we commit.  I'm thining we may open a jeweler to turn that gold of yours into art." Hargrym responded "It may not be immediate but I'm hoping it will."

Bart looks up from a note that has been delivered to him.  "Lord Cyrus, The Abbess Beatrix  would like to build a Holy House in, in Ringbridge.  She says that she is prepared to add a Graveyard to it, as soon as the resources are available.  What say you?"

Alanna nods a smiles to Hargrym, "Ah, a jeweler's shop would be most welcome in New Dawn. You are clever to take advantage of the close proximity to our new gold mine."

She then turns to Domitius, "We will happily welcome Winter Sun Merchants into our village and hope that you will enable our growth by bringing needed supplies to New Dawn, and perhaps helping to share the lovely jewelry pieces that Mr. Silverhammer's clansmen produce," she adds with a cute smile, noting that the two had been conferring earlier.

"As I said, we can accommodate both of your requests, but we would like to request a small donation to aid in the development of civil infrastructure that will insure stability and prosperity to our budding little village. Is that something you can accommodate?"

"Aah well that depends really on the Bank of Abadar really, Hargrym here is starting to forge his own way on behalf of the Silverhammer clan.  I will discuss things with my partner Lord Kendrick but we are stretched currently.  Possibly in the coming months we could look at supporting civil improvements if we are unable to do so now.  Alternatievly we could hold off on the serai development until later." Domitius replied to Alanna after a brief consultation with Hargrym.

Cyrus confirms that he would like Abbess Beatrix to build a holy house, then continues  "We also intend to build a farm in the Hinterlands.  Our focus will be on developing facilities for raising sheep and processing their wool."

This thread is now closed for new proposals or changes of proposal.  However, it may still be tweaked by settlement owners as they manage their budgets / settlements.
