[Furnisher Bazaar Name] Name the Furnisher Bazaar on Guava! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Baa-zaar. It's a sheep thing.

/me waits for the rimshot and listens to crickets chirp.

A new shoppe type will be introduced to the Midnight Ocean shortly - the furnisher shoppe. These shoppes will construct furnishings for sale to pirates to put in their houses (we're getting houses, too) and ships.

[URL=http://www.puzzlepirates.com/wiki/Furnisher]Click here[/URL] for more information on the furnisher bazaar and shoppes from the Y!PPedia.

We intend to construct a furnisher bazaar on Guava Island (along the lines of the tailor bazaar, weavery bazaar, etc.) and could use YOUR help coming up with a name for it.

Guava Island has a [URL=http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=12288#12288]slogan[/URL], a [URL=http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=139696#139696]theme song[/URL], and [URL=http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?p=167171#167171]a theme that's been confirmed by a Developer[/URL] (sheepish puns). Name suggestions for the new furnisher bazaar should be in keeping with the existing theme.

Please suggest names in this thread in the Avalon forums. The prize for the best name will include the deed to the bazaar (which we can't guarantee the winner will get to keep forever, since bazaar deeds transfer everytime an island gets a new governor), credits in the bazaar news, and 10,000 PoE.

Edited: spelling

I can't believe no one mentioned Pottery Barn. Or Pottery Baarn, for extra sheepiness.

I didn't mention it because I didn't think of it.

I suppose 2 "terms anbd conditions" you should clarify are if the Island goes through a change of governor, but stays within the flag, would the deed be returned?

Other thing is if you happen to get a winner who choses to post absolute drivle (on anti-Avalon propoganda) in the news would they forfit the rights to it?

If the island changes governor, and the former deedholder wants the deed back, I'll ask the new governor to give it back. Nothing's guaranteed, though.

Yes, there is a "play nice" caveat. If the deedholder doesn't play nice, we'll reclaim the deed.

The Winner is GAMEBOY with his entry of Wool-Mart, submitted in this thread in the Avalon forums. Congratulations, mate, and thank you to everyone who contributed.
