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.

Brother Bart looks around the room, checking that there are representatives from each of the settlements there -  then he declares the meeting open for discussion

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.

"I am prepared to build a great shrine in New Dawn, to  help spread the word of Torag.  I would hope to upgrade it to a Holy House in the Future."

Lutz responds to Alanna's hints.

"And we in Ringbridge would be happy to see you enhance your stone works."  Cyrus replies to Hagrym, on behalf of Midmarch's largest town.

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)

“We could expand on the Swans, if you are prepared for it at this time.” Elkin added, looking around suspiciously as if someone were listening in on his secrets.

"To a Road house?" Cyrus asks, clearly having been well primed by his wife.

Elkin stopped looking around long enough to look directly at Cyrus. “Yes, and more advancement as supplies come in if your community is ready for such expansion.”
