I've lost 50 pounds already


Well done.  I haven't weighed myself since I came back from the weekend -  But I had lost about 15-20lb  since the start of the lockdown.

Re: OOC 3
Some of you might be aware that there are Bonus properties that come from the Campaign System – which represents the campaign living standard that your character can afford.  Those of you not on the list, have a basic room in a barrack block -  or stay in one of the buildings that you own.

There are options to build extra accommodation for yourself in the campaign rules  (ask me and I will point them out) as part of your property portfolio -  BUT make sure you have an income established first  ;}

Now you just need to tell me where you want to be based.  Houses and town houses are found in Cities and towns, so you have a choice of Tusk, Ringbridge, Newgate or Oston - assuming you get permission from the landowner.
These don’t have to be your main residence – for example Henry has a number of homes, but generally uses either his manor house in Tusk or the castle at Newgate.  Cyrus has a manor house in Ringbridge, and a smaller house in Tusk (for when he is in the city)

See below for the properties you can have as a freebie – and further below for a quick description.  This is all based on the PF cost of living standards :}

The following people have enough of an Income to secure a House as a bonus.
  • Adoven
  • Andalon
  • Cass

These people can have a Town House  as a bonus.
  • Domitius
  • Safiya
  • Marik

Kendrick & Pipre already have a Town House in Tusk – and one of them might have an apartment in Tusk keep.

Descriptions

Barracks Room – You get a small room Just big enough for a small bed, table and chair (let’s say 7.5x5)   in a barracks and are entitled to meals in the mess hall.  There are baths, toilets etc for communal use   You need not track purchases of meals or taxes that cost 1 sp or less.

Town House - Three rooms,(15×20) stacked one on top of each other. Ground = Entrance, storage, washroom. Stairs to – Middle floor: living room, cooking done over the open fire. Stairs to – Top Floor: Sleeping room with sloping ceilings. Generally part of a terrace of houses. Small yard with toilet.- - You eat regular meals and can afford occasional minor luxuries. You still wear artisan style clothing (costs less 10gp), but can afford clothes for everyday use – and a different set for ‘best’ – and they are in fairly good condition. You probably employ a P/T cleaner and P/T cook. You can secure any non-magical item worth 1 gp or less from your home in 1d10 minutes, and need not track purchases of common meals or taxes that cost 1 gp or less.

House - - Think three bedroomed house spread over three floors, top is a half-floor with sloping ceilings. Often has a yard with a toilet and is part of a terrace. Perhaps one live-in servant with others coming in part-time.  You eat well and can afford minor luxuries when you feel like it, but you still save up for bigger treats. You probably have a set of Courtier’s clothes for posh occasions.  You can secure any non-magical item worth 5 gp or less in your home, and need only track purchases of meals or taxes in excess of 5 gp.

Just one weekend, it's probably good.  If it's every weekend, and "weekends" start getting to be five or six days long, well...


Had Domitius been resolved on going through with the duel, I'd envisioned a scene with Alisa sitting between Kiera and Berta, her face in her hands, like "Here I am with representatives of the two best boozing houses in the lands.  And, I can't even ask either of you for anything to drink, because I'm..."

Re: OOC 3
I have been working to restructure the wiki to reflect the split between Tusk, Midmarch and Old Keep - I am getting there slowly.

As part of that, I have been working with Tusk Council to establish an 'electoral' system for Tusk.  Don't expect a full on democracy -  it is more like a  Fantasy Version  of the historic system used in free cities found in the Hanseatic League or Holy Roman Empire.

Welcome to Lords, Lairds and Burghers ...

http://rp.baileymail.net/doku....tusk:tuskcitycharter

What it does mean, is that any PC can build up their investment to a point where they can be elected to the council -  AND Then (if they really want to) can try to recall an existing Council Member, so that there is a post for to apply for  :P

Re: OOC 3
One for the established PCs -  have a look through this list and check that I have all of your entourages.  If not PM me with the ones who are missing.

New Guys - I'll add you when we get back from adventuring, you get your first BP to spend and you are an established part of the game  :)  That said, it is a handy 'pocket guide' to most of the people you might meet (or search out) in game

Also an offer to all, if you want your own heraldric devices designed shoot me a PM and I'll see what I can come up with.

Edited by DM: This is what we have so far.

Re: OOC 3
I have enhanced the  Campaign Rules  concerning brewing - and you can now brew 'Ale' in a Craft Workshop.  However, a  Brewery is still required if you  want to make a named beer (such as Poachers Pale), rather than the generic 'ale'.

You can see my thinking here

http://galinia.org.uk/beer-and-ale

The same will hold true for wines, although I haven't got around to working out the detail yet.
