The Usual Suspects intend to blockade Fugu [SINKING]

Ahoy! The Usual Suspects are declaring their intent to blockade Fugu Island this Saturday!

Intent Video
Standard Information
  • Time/date: Blockade starts at 12:00 noon game time on Saturday, the 15th. Jobbing will begin at 11:00 am game time.
  • Starting Pay: 500 poe per segment - However, we will match any other pay offers if they're higher than this.
  • Jobbing Contacts: JobTUS and Easy
  • Sinking? Yes!


Colonization Plans

If we were to win, we would have a general naming theme of Poisons, due to the islands name. Fugu is a species of fish, found generally in Japan. It is poisonous, thus where we get the poison theme. We have reviewed the spawns of the island (sugar cane and iron), and therefore believe the following structures should be built, along with the basic infrastructure buildings:
  • A Shipyard Bazaar
  • A Shipyard Shoppe
  • A Iron Monger Bazaar
  • A Distillary Bazaar
  • The fifth is undecided at the moment; We're debating whether to build housing (such as manors), or a shoppe that would be sold. Many people have been asking if we are going to build any additional shoppes to sell, therefore if we do choose to make, and sell a second shoppe... The person paying for it can choose what type of shoppe they want, based on the bazaars built (e.g. an IM shoppe, Distillary shoppe, or Shipyard shoppe).


Encouraging Pillaging

To help encourage pillaging, we will keep the palace stocked with rum and shot. Hopefully the Iron Monger's and Distilleries on the island would take over the market after a month or so. Furthermore, to encourage stall owners to open up shoppe here... we will be setting taxes to 0% for one month, or possibly longer if we feel there aren't enough stalls.

During the Blockade

During the blockade, we will be doing many mini events, such as raffles and trivia. Some of the items that will be raffled off include a sloop, and an un-named elephant. During the round 4 break, we have tournements and events planned for your enjoyment! :).

Also, with this blockade we will be giving out a FREE bandanna to every jobber who wants one!* Males will be receiving navy colored bandannas, while females will receive a maroon bandanna.

And finally, during the blockade we will be handing out bonuses to top puzzlers.

*While supplies lasts

Conclusion

We have high hopes that this blockade will be extremely fun, and exciting for Malachite. We ask that if you're jobbing for EITHER side, to please be respectful. Please don't spread lies or rumors to try and sabotage either side, and most of all.... Have FUN! :). Having Gretchen Goldfang there will spice things up a bit!

Just curious, will that shop be sold in a public auction on forums where anyone get a chance to buy it? or will it be a private deal

As stated in the original intent, we are undecide on the 5th building. We are considering a 4th bazaar, housing our a shoppe. We have offers on the table to purchase a shoppe and are considering them. As for if the sale will be public or private, we will decide that when we decide on the direction. More than likely if we decided to sell, it would be private, for either monetary or political gain.

this is enough for me. thank ya for a build that will actually see some life around that island. see ya there and good luck!

not that my opinion means much, but... i know that blockade will cost ya tons of money, but i think many would be thankful for a manor (or some other type of housing) rather than another shoppe.

Considering the fact that the other SYs are on outposts and can be easily dusted to put something else if those holding those islands choose to do so, this is not a bad thing.
Yes I am aware they can also dust their own shoppe as well but I doubt that will happen on a medium island, even if the island is taken over, they will get to keep their shoppe unlike outposts.

MY only concern with whoever gets Fugu is that they don't kill the spawns by haphazardly placing their buildings, whatever they are.

Re: The Usual Suspects intend to blockade Fugu [SINKING]

Synful - actually there are currently 4 upgraded shipyard shops on non-outpost islands. Look around. For a small ocean with so few blockades, another one is just greed and overkill.

I smell a bargaining chip and nothing more.

Ummm why blockade a medium if your not going to build yourself somthing usefull. This way there is a SY not in the BD alliance rings hands sounds like a good thing to me and im in BD. Also dont bring up the ringer owned ones because those really dont count and anyone with any sense isnt using them.
