Hey all, just wanted to let you know I've been without power all day and might be tomorrow, so I might not be posting for a couple of days.


That doesn't sound like fun. Hopefully it gets sorted quickly for you.

Re: OOC 3
People have started asking me awkward questions about trading outside of Tusk/Midmarch - so I thought I ought to get my act together and write something.

http://galinia.org.uk/reading-across-borders

This might look as if I am having a go at V&A -  It isn't meant to be.  I have been winging most of those transactions -  which works while there is only one business interested.  It doesn't work when there are more people interested in setting up trade routes.

I also know some of these ideas sound draconic, but that reflects the political makeup of the settlements and the difficulty of getting established in a 'foreign' town/country.

Perhaps food for thought for Tusk Council.

Dang.  I forgot to add a note about 'magic' economy being cashable at 'small town' rates and ....  something else I can't remember now that I have started this post.

I live in Texas, and am in the same situation --  it is serious, with ongoing power outages.    Likely I'll be scarce this week.

Perhaps regarding tax-free assets being cashable as well?

I was starting to feel uuncomfortable with that, it makes it too easy to Xfer money between places.  I might tempted to keep magic items as cashable -  the investment for producing them is higher.

All of you, stay safe!

Agreed. That's why I want to expand my magic assets.

Just remeber what I said about Holy Houses - they need to have a clear religious purpose, rather than just being a cash cow for developments in different areas.

Understood. I am promoting Cayden as he appeals to my devil-may-care attitude. But rather than just Holy Houses, expect me to build Luxury Stores and a Bardic College in Ringbridge as well, eventually.

Re: OOC 3
I have added a short section to the religious organiosations page, describing what a deity expects money generated by Holy Buildings to be used for.

That goes very well with the brewery that is being built in Mound.

There's also a brand new district with lots of room for development in Ringbridge :)

Safe, thawed and relatively unscathed, and hoping the same for my fellow Texans. What a BS week that was.

Re: OOC 3
Yeah -- no kidding!  Glad that you're okay.  The weather's now over 60 degrees F where we are, and it's like it was a bad dream!  Came through w/o burst pipes or any property damage, thank goodness.   I know others who were less fortunate, now have an expensive mess..

Apologies this last couple of weeks have been hectic for me. I've finally had to cut my abusive mother out of my life and have been distracted. Back to posting for me!
