RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

As the title suggests this thread is for the RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans.

Stormy Fell is a long way from most of the current trade and pillage routes, hidden out in a deep pocket of Garnet. Our aim of these island plans is to get pirates to venture out this far, to use Stormy Fell as a place for business and a port to pillage from. We hope that our collection of island plans will benefit anyone visiting the island.

For Business:

No Shoppes
- Viridian Ocean is already over saturated with shoppes and we do not think that it needs any more. By limiting the island to only bazaars we are giving fair opportunity to those who wish to run a business on the island.
In saying this we realise this may be more of a dream than a reality. In past experience we opened a tailor bazaar on Prolix, after weeks of advertising not one person opened a stall there. It is possible that there will be little or no interest in a certain type of stall on the island. We feel that 4 weeks will be long enough for us to assess the progress of the stalls, if after this time for example there are no weaving stalls it may be essential to place a weaving shoppe so that other stall owners will have access to the cloth.
If there is a need for a shoppe the first shoppe will be given out in a Lima shoppe style event such as an event blockade or a trade route race. If there is then further need for shoppes they may be given out in other events or traded only to those who have previously proven themselves as competent shopkeepers with the promise that it won't be used solely for flag use.

0% Taxes - Forever. Stall owners will be able to craft products for reasonable profit while at the same time offer cheap competitive prices without having to worry about a high rent.

The Shopkeepers Reward - To encourage fair shopkeeping there will be a 50k a week prize to a random stall owner. To be eligible for this reward the stall must be selling 80% of the items for a profit above cost price, we want to create a competitive market where there are no stalls selling below cost as you would find on Lima. This reward will begin being handed out when there are at least 8 stalls in each bazaar.

The Palace - To help shopkeepers get started during the development period any commodities used for production such as herbs, minerals and basic commodities that the palace has will be sold at the price we paid for them. They will be sold in smaller numbers to make sure this isn't abused. The palace will also be fully stocked with ship supplies as soon as possible for those wishing to adventure around the new region.

For Pillagers:

Sloop Swap
- We will be offering a swapping system where you can trade a sloop anywhere in the ocean for a stocked and charted sloop on Stormy Fell ready for pillaging.

Explorers Hall - We will be placing an explorers hall to help increase the activity around SF.

The Hunt - Once each weekend between Friday and Sunday night we aim to have a RiddleMakers member pillaging around SF with a booty full of poe. This will increase pillaging around the area when people are hunting for their chance of this hefty booty. A tournament will be used to broadcast the pirate and the amount of poe they are travelling with.

For Blockaders:

Events
- There will be regular event blockades on the island where we will offer prizes to the winning flag. The prizes will range from ships on SF some limited edition, to dates with Anchovia. A thread in VE will be set up to announce the times and other details of all our events and the winners of past events.

The Inn - As originally stated we do not plan to sell the Inn for profit. The Inn will not go towards helping us sit on SF for the next few years and it will not go to our BFF. In our original thread we said that we were going to listen to the ocean and that is what we have done here. The money made from the sale of the Inn will go towards helping new flags blockade. We originally tried to stop the island opening because we feel that there are not enough blockades, this suggestion was perfect for us as by providing other flags with the ability to cade there should be a rise in activity.
We went over a lot of scenarios of how exactly we help fund flags and none of them are exactly easy, we can't give flags out piles of poe and hope that they cade. For now we can't say how exactly the monetary help will come all that we can say is that it will, it may be in the form of a blockade package, refunding a % of poe spent or giving out a % of poe or it may be the proposed three step blockade or perhaps something completely different that is suggested in the weeks to come.
If we are to win it will be a few weeks before we can build and sell in the Inn. During this time we would like to continue to hear from VP and see how they would like to have new flags helped out. Many of you may be flags wanting to blockade, it would be great to hear from you on what you need to take the next step. If we are to win the island we will continue the discussion on the best way to go about doing this in the current discussion thread.

For Pirates:

Houses
- As we are not building any shoppes the will be plenty of room for houses, because of this we will be placing every type of house from shack to pirate hall. We will be bringing new housing options to Garnet as at present there are only limited options. Currently there are no left facing shacks, cabins, bungalows, row houses, townhouses, villas, mansions, estates or pirates halls and no right facing cottages in Garnet.

Charm - There will be a lot of space to fill on the island around the houses so we will be adding charm to make it look a bit fancier, not to worry though it won't look like Terra dock.

Theme - Who doesn't love a good retro video game? As previously posted our naming theme will be based on retro video games. We have to name a Palace, Estate agent, Comod Market, Bank, Inn, Tailor, IM, SY, Distill, Weave, Apoth and Furni Bazaars along with 10 houses so we need a lot of suggestions here.

Charts - As there will be no Shipyard Shoppe placed on the island charts will have to be purchased from a stall in the Bazaar. Once again if there is no interest in a SY stall we will open one so you have the ability to purchase the local charts.

Props - Rest assured we will not be destroying any of the props in any of the buildings. The Governor may add furniture to the government buildings but this will not be replacing the props.


Lastly just a few notes, these are long term plans for the island, we will be sticking to these for as long as we have the island and we will be defending the island for as long as possible.
As per normal later in the week we will be posting our blockade intent with the cade details and our blockade events.
If possible we would like to keep discussion regarding the sale of the Inn to help new flags blockade in the current thread.
Discussion related to anything else read here is best suited to here.


Throughout the week we have been open to suggestion to hear what the ocean would like to see from Viridian's newest island. We would like to take the next few days to hear back from you all regarding these plans. We are open to the possibility of changing removing or adding more plans if we were off the mark with this collection.

I would like to thank all those from the community who have already contributed to these plans.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

I like this a lot, there will probably not be a ton of stall owners but I think the idea of not having to compete with shoppes should help a lot of people venture onto the island. Zero tax helps attract stall owners also.

+1 for the Explorers Hall.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

Just an update, I'd like to share one of the draft island designs that a flag member has been working on. The island should look something like this except with the addition of houses.




Also we're still taking suggestions for retro video game themed names for the government buildings, bazaars and houses. If your suggested name is chosen you will be rewarded for your creativity. We are currently offering the deed to what you name (bazaars and houses) if you promise not to dust any of the props and a randomly selected pet that can be used to help guard your new building. You will also receive a trinket noting that you were successful in creating Viridian Ocean history.

If we can keep the other thread just for the blockade ideas and everything else in here it should make it easier to keep track of it all.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

Since the island is BK owned, and from a preview of the intent, I'm assuming noon game time on Saturday.

There won't be a blockade if I can't stop looking at your avatar. At this stage we're going with Saturday Noon, more details to come in our intent thread.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

A suggestion to bring potential stall owners to Stormy Fell. Offer some form of reimbursement to folks that open a stall on SF, being either partial or full opening costs. I've done this in the past and it's worked quite well.

Before starting the rebate process, we had about 111 stalls on the island. The month-long rebate process gained 49 stalls. Three months later, we still had a total of 128 stalls, so there was some retention, but overall a great success. With continued stall owner support, I'm sure you keep stall owners around for many months with incentives, random drawings, plentiful commodities, etc.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

Strictly speaking, FFVII sold about 3.2 million more copies worldwide than FFX. Personally, I'm a FF6 fan.

Re: RiddleMakers Stormy Fell Island Plans

FFVll is pretty old, late 90s wasn't it? Probably one of the more popular games to ever come out.
