OOC How do we handle that kind of expansion? It isn't just upgrading a facility, but incorporating a 2nd pier/jetty into the larger Quayside. Exchange the Wharf and the Jetty plus the monetary difference to get the Quayside(5.5 bp I think)? And expand the Warehouse to a second Large Warehouse?

Adoven looks up as he puts figures together in his head. He looks at Andalon and says "sounds reasonable to me."

I have just added a new map to the Wiki, proposing a possible six districts in the Outer ring.  I suspect 4 would be the best place for the new leisure district.

Waiting for a quiet moment, Kiera would pull herself to her feet, and nod towards the council.

"I must admit I agree with Lady Pipre's idea that there just isn't all that much for leisure and the like.  But it might need some help to draw people to the area, and to take advantage of the ones already in the area.

To help anchor this new district, I'm seeking to open a few things, with the council's permission: taking some inspiration from the fair Lady Pipre, I'd like to explore the possibility of opening a second tavern and a brothel of my own- though mine would have an attached shrine."


OOC:  Simplified version:  Kiera would like the opportunity to open a second tavern and a brothel with attached shrine in the new proposed district (+2 Econ, +1 Loyalty).

The Bishop and Chancellor of Tusk looked a little troubled by Kiera's plans.

"I would not object to those particular developments in the new district and I am sure there would be customers for both," he began. "But when added to your existing road house, the Nereid's Nectar, your developments would not quite be contributing to the community of the City in the way that others have been required to do. To be fair to other developers who have come before you, we may need to ask you to contribute in a way that will build community spirit as well. There would be a number of ways that could be done, but one thought that comes to mind would be to postpone one part of your proposed developments and perhaps sponsor a scrymball team instead? At the moment we have a proposed public amphitheatre with no teams to play there."

"Well, never let it be said that I'm not looking out for the community, hm~?"

She taps her lips with a finger, and then grins.

"Here's an idea- we hammer out terms for an addition to my loan, and then I invest in a tavern, the brothel- and we make the attached shrine a bit bigger?

And then, some time after that, perhaps I'll end up sponsoring a team after all~?"

"Oh, I don't know, Andalon.  There will be amateur teams practising at the new sports park." Henry suggests, then he grins broadly.

"I tell you what ...  if the city sponsors a team, I'll sponsor one as well.  How about the Lakeside Mulers?  We have three Serai in Lakeside, and all the guards and teamsters are good, strong lads.

How about it Dom, do you want to come in halves with me?  Adoven has already contributed a sports park for the amateurs, but there is no reason the people from his serai can't join in with ours.  You never know, maybe, when he sees what fun we are having, he will start up the V&A Boaters, based in Port Henry."

Andalon laughs.

"It looks like my worries of an empty amphitheater were groundless. Lord Henry, I am happy to voice my support for the idea of the City sponsoring a scrymball team.

"Kiera, I will have a word with our bank manager and I am sure there will not be a problem increasing your loan to cover a great shrine."

"Glad we could come to an agreement, then~."

Kiera looks pleased with herself as she returns to sitting down.

" Excellent." Henry rubs his hands together in satisfaction, then leans across to say something quietly to Dom.

We still haven't settled on a name for the new sports and entertainment district, and now Tusk's scrymball team will need a name too.

What animals have tusks? Boars, warthogs, hippopotami, walruses, elephants, mammoths? Is there anything there that works (Tusk City Mammoths?), or any tusked monsters that would work better?

Ohoooh - strange how obscure things suddenly pop into your mind - You could base the team in College District and call it Tusk Academicals.  It would keep those damned students off the streets ...

Yep.... Unseen Academicals was the title, I think. Or the soccer team name. Maybe both.

Brother Florin stands and clears his throat a little nervously.

"If it pleases the City Council, I would like to build a Museum here in Tusk City to house some of the many items that have been accumulated as souvenirs from the early days of establishment of Midmarch and Tusk, and the various exploration and clearing missions since then. People will be more than welcome, in fact actively encouraged, to bring in any such items either as donations to the museum or simply to loan items for the museum to display while they ae not needed elsewhere.

"I think College District would be the best place to build the museum where it will be close to the Library of Iomedae to make it easier for anyone researching our history and those items to have easy access to both buildings."

Bishop Andalon smiles proudly at Brother Florin, clearly having already given his personal blessing to Brother Florin's plans.

"I am pleased to be able to announce that the church of Abadar will sponsor a Scrymball team of its own here in Tusk City, as well. The team is to be named the Golden Keys of Abadar, or more simply the Golden Keys.

"We are planning to build a watchtower of our own alongside the Bank of Abadar in the Merchant Quarter, which will be the headquarters for a unit of house guards employed directly by the church to patrol and guard our holdings here in Tusk - our cathedral, bank and great market.

"Yes, I expect that most of the players in our team will be drawn from our guards and I have no doubt that there will be a number of our parishioners with the skills to join the team, as well.

"That will give us a total of four scrymball teams, which will certainly make for a lively local competition. I am looking forward to watching the first game already!"
