That is a good question. I think you missed the reason for the blockade, though. BV and this misfit can't spells put a SY infront of the well, and well, thats hideous.

Ahh. So, they ruined the landscape, and you want to take the island so you can fix the landscape???

Re: We do not Fear the Snow. (Winter Solstice Intent)

if anyone knows the answer, please enlighten

according to YPPedia, a basic shipyard shoppe requires the following labor hours to build:
1400 basic
400 skilled
300 expert

assuming that the construction is not completed when a new flag took over the island, would it be possible for the new governor to halt all work-in-progress constructions?


my next question is to dangerdann (or any authority in the flag which is blockading winter this weekend):
assuming that it is possible to stop construction of buildings not yet completed, would you folks be doing that? as in, would you stop the construction of both shipyard shoppes (or at least the obstructive one where everyone is talking about)?

i certainly would not be jobbing for BV in this weekend blockade

Capsized's intent (to stop the construction of said shipyard shoppe if they could??) would then determine whether i would job for them or to do other thing with my time

Re: We do not Fear the Snow. (Winter Solstice Intent)

Yes, the new governor receives the deeds to any construction site still in progress. From that point I believe it's possible to stop construction by petition to the OMs, if not then it's still possible to remove them by finishing construction and then not paying taxes for a month.

"If an island with a construction site changes governors as the result of a blockade, the deed to the construction site transfers to the new governor."

Basically ... Yes

If Capsized were to prize Winter Solstice away from Burning Vengance, then the shipyard (or as I prefer to call it, the obstruction) named 'Ship Tease' will have its construction halted and the building will be demolished.

The second construction site 'Cold Noses and Dry Fleet', next to the Palace, owned by Redbeard, is a slightly different story. From what I have been told, the construction should be finished within 24 hours (7.45 PDT at time of typing). If this is the case, then we can obviously not do anything about it. However, if the site is somehow not finished in time for the end of the blockade, then we will take steps to also halt its construction.

If Capsized were to win Winter, we will set taxes to 0% for a furthur two weeks, before setting them to 7%. [edited]

We hope that the blockade can go ahead with no interruptions ;)

The new governor could halt construction by turning off labor, and pulling any poe out of the construction site, no poe, no work. Then I guess they could petition an OM to remove the site.

On a side note, if Capsized were to win Winter, as a little bonus, taxes will be dropped to 5% for two weeks before returning to their normal rate.


The tax rates there now are at 0%.. So you plan on raising then for a couple weeks... Then raising them even higher?

Sounds like the island's shop and stall owners may have been in better hands with BV.

At the time of writing, I was told that taxes were at 10%. Apparently they were being played with at some point, before going back to 0%.

So I must change our offer:

If Capsized were to win Winter, taxes stay at 0% for a furthur two weeks, and then set to 7%.

Re: We do not Fear the Snow. (Winter Solstice Intent)

I'd rather see you set them to 100% and refund the non-BV shoppes.

I can give you a hand with it if you need.
