Re: OOC2
Interesting...... does this mean that I might be able to get away with freely expanding a warehouse to a large warehouse, or a jetty to a pier without paying into a community project, because the improvements in Economy will balance out the improvements in Stability and Loyalty? Because if I can convince El to invest this turn, I can expand both, increasing Economy by +2, which directly balances the +2 Loyalty/+2 Stability given by the paved roads.

Only problem I see is that paved roads ONLY influences a single district. To cover the whole city, you need to invest in paved roads for 3 Districts. Now, does that add +2 Loyalty/Stability to the entire city, or does that add +6 Loyalty/Stability to the city?

Re: OOC2
I believe that if you offer 2 BP for paved roads in a district, that you would be able to spend 1 BP each to upgrade to a large warehouse and a pier, and keep the town in balance.

Not sure about the +2/+6 aspect. I am sure the DM will clarify once he sees the thread.

Re: OOC2
Actually, I thought I saw someone else planning to pave roads already. If they went ahead with that, it would leave an imbalance....one I can try to correct with my own expansions. If I have to invest in the paved roads myself, that will take time, at least one or two more Kingdom turns.

Re: OOC2
Paving roads is  there as a space-saving way of increasing Loyalty and Stability -  So it adds to the city over all.

I suspect I should make 'District Wall' - as a pre-requisite though ....

Re: OOC2
Yep  :)

That was just a casual thought that came into my head as you started me thinking about the process.

That said, I think  you can still manage a third district wall for Port Henry as well.

Not this turn I can't. Does anyone know what the stars next to Sword School and Merchant house mean?

Re: OOC2
Sorry - that wasn't meant as a suggestion for you personally -  but was just an analysis of what Tusk Council could achieve.

I thought I had posted this link earlier  http://rp.baileymail.net/doku....aign_systems:rewards

Basically, the more stars a building has, the better the accommodation provided for residents  :)  It is based (loosely) on the PF 'cost of living guidelines'.

Re: OOC2
Is there a defensive wall around the entire town of Tusk or no?

Re: OOC2
Hi DM, back in msg #188 of this thread I noticed you had said, "I have been thinking about the next set of tasks, and have decided that I do want to differentiate groups more by level this time.  For that reason all of the characters in groups 1, 2 & 3 will go up a level during this kingdom phase."

I nearly missed that comment. Does that mean that all characters in those groups can level up now, including existing level 4 and 5 characters?

Re: OOC2
Yes.

I would have re-iterated it again soon, but I have been waiting until everyone was back from adventures - which we all are  now (just about)

However, this is as good a time as any.   All characters in groups 1,2 & 3 can advance a level now they are comfortably back in Midmarch

Do we need to wait to update sheets until after Tusk Central resolves?

Do entourage advance now as well?

Hehehe.

I guess you'll just have to challenge the higher level PC's harder to re-solidify your reputation ;)

Not us lowly 3rd levels though of course, we're still just babes in the woods!

Anyone willing to loan me 0.5BP or more? Is there a Fuzzy thread for that?

"Oi, Carrot Top" is a much more appropriate welcome. I hear it might even become the official welcome of Midmarch.

This might be a good option for newer players with just1bp, who haven't yet developed a  plan on how to spend it yet.  It might even be a whole new business model -  set up a 'hedge fund' and ask the bank to manage investments for you (for a share of the interest of course)

I  saw Adoven post a similar request (somewhere) for people to lend him BP as well.



People have negotiated interest payments on loans, and it might be interesting to see what both are offering.

Re: OOC2
Usually I offer 1.5 BP back for a 1 BP investment. 1 BP the following turn and 0.5 BP  the turn after. But I can at most handle paying back two investors at this time. No more than that.

Re: OOC2
Find it difficult to sit with 0.5BP. So I'd like to borrow 0.5BP or lend out 0.5BP. Anyone able to work with that?

Re: OOC2
Hmmm. I wonder if the DM would allow me to open a gambling den and let people bet with BPs. We could have this nation built in no time!
