Static Before The Storm... Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I went to your fine island of Cochineal the other day, to try and get supplies for a trip I was planning. Imagine my utter dismay when I realized that no one was selling fine rum. No one. Not even the trading post. I figured it was a fluke, and kept checking back. Nope. Still no one selling fine rum.

What's up with that? Are you not able to find distillers in the area who can put out fine rum? I know distilling can be a tart, trust me, I get that. Even if that fails, however, there's the option of buying it elsewhere and running it in, right?

I don't want to load my vessel down with grog. It's a waste, and honestly, I think my jobbers deserve the good stuff.

Can you please get some fine rum onto your island? This is ridiculous.

I've been told by savvier people than myself that grog is generally more cost effective than fine rum. And at least it's not nothing? :-/

If you don't know how rum works, read YPPedia and use http://ouroborus.org/Y!PP/calc/

I have never been at a point where the excess weight and volume of swill/grog made a difference.

I wouldn't have a problem with even grog, if there were more than 40 units available. But when only one place has grog, and that only at ~40 units, it's not viable, long term.

Stop making these petty posts. Did you even try contacting the flag first?

I think the other thread addresses some of the issues that this arch is having...

Sometimes it's really hard to keep /whoing people. Bring it to the forum is not always a bad thing (Parley after all). What has come about from the link posted above is super informative and I am learning A LOT!

Looks like we are happily purchasing plenty of fine rum @ the palace. It also looks like there are hundreds of units of usable beverage available @ our island. There is also available beverage from some of our fine merchants deliverable immediately. As the palace is not a production shop, and we like to encourage our merchants the ability to thrive we try not to interfere in their ability to make a profit. However since you are demanding "the fine stuff" I have made some available for you in the palace. Like all fine things this too comes with a price.

Cheers!

Cybr - thanks for making the fine rum available. Are there issues on your island as well, with people buying up the available stock as soon as it's ready, essentially stockpiling?

I ask because 40 units of grog (which is all I saw when I was checking availability dockside) will not go nearly far enough for an Atlantis map (which I've got a couple of, but which can't really be used because the mate who I give them to likes to load big ships and go for a couple hours), and with nothing else available when I've checked, it's been frustrating.

I'm working on getting a ship finished near there to act as my own "pantry" or supply ship, so I can buy the stock as it comes ready.

Aristoza - this is not a petty thread. A petty thread would be "Your palace colors are ugly! Wah wah wah!" This is a thread about basic ship supplies being unavailable in numbers large enough to meet the demand presented by the spawning of such a large number of charts in the area. And as I explained in the other post, no, I didn't contact the flag in game, because when I'm ingame, I'm typically puzzling, and don't have the time to try to carry on a conversation in /tells. Additionally, I don't want to /who someone every 5 minutes, and hope I catch them online, and that they'll respond to me.

I think it really boils down to the fundamental point that the population is declining and when it declines, most folks tend to take and move their businesses and labor to more populated areas. While business picks up when a chart or a flotilla is discovered nearby, people in mass just don't come 'round these parts no more. Couple that with the expert labor - Fine Rum discussion from your other thread gives us where the outlying islands/archipelagos lie.

Cheers,
