The name El Pollo Diablo is taken at least twice!

Vanguard, you really should pave over those commod spawns on Napi with some original names. If you need assistance, I have two hearties who are currently Sublime/Ult in Punning. I'm sure that for a reasonable fee, they can come up with fantastic and, more importantly, subtle names for your next thirty shipyards.

Re: The name El Pollo Diablo is taken at least twice!

I like the name El Pollo Diablo being used multiple times. It's kind of like a branch. You know you can get quality ships at El Pollo Diablo on Kirin, so if you see the same name on another island, you know you will receive the same quality and are sponsoring the same owners. Like a franchise.

Neither of your posts are helping me get a 10% agent fee from Framling and Astrolabe for getting Calais to pay them for puns.

I think you are going about this the wrong way. Vanguard is perfectly fine with giving crap names to shoppes or allowing the buyer to name them. Why would we pay for ideas when we feel ours are perfectly fine? Now if you slide us some poe, we may take in consideration your suggestions for the flag shoppe names. You have to make us want to allow you to name the shoppes. Right now were happy with our boring Vanguard naming schemes. I think 10k a character sound like a good price? To show our generocity, we will cut the price of the spaces between words down 7% for every shoppe you name. "Requiem for a Dream" would only cost 190k for the first time... but 30k of that would go down with each name purchased. Its a steal!

Re: The name El Pollo Diablo is taken at least twice!

No, but when a lot of people buy their ships/fleet/stock, they certainly take into account who owns what. So, if you are an ally of Vanguard, buying from one of their shoppes can be a lot different from buying from someone else's shoppe, know what I mean? It is a cycle of money.

Thank you for interpreting my post the right way.

We all know there is no difference between the same ship catagories Rhia, however there is a quality difference in items. An item that requires more expert hours and less basic ones (this only counts for items that dust) will last longer before dusting than one with more basic and less expert.

The name El Pollo Diablo tells me I am supporting Calais and his efforts, which is enough for me. I like to think that a ship coming from an El Pollo Diablo shoppe is more worthy of my sailing than one from another yard.

This concept would be unique on Y!PP and I feel Calais should look into opening an El Pollo Diablo on every island.

Re: The name El Pollo Diablo is taken at least twice!

Aren't there Tailor shoppes on Midnight that do something similar? They have a website for their shoppes, they offer outfit suggestions and planning, all that good stuff. Even though they offer the same products as every other Tailor, it seems much better to buy from them.

God, I can't remember the name of it to save me.

The building policy does not say on the same island. One of the apothecary shoppes on Delta on Midnight got renamed because it was too similar to another shoppe on Xi. As of right now, the only buildings that share names are ones on different oceans, except El Pollo Diablo.

The Building Talk page on the YPPedia implies that this policy applies to buildings oceanwide.

I think 10k a character sound like a good price?



So, "Nemor iz teh sux" would be 160k? I'll start saving!

On Midnight, there are at least three shipyards named variations of "Fish and Ships." Those haven't been changed (unless the wiki has not been updated).

Maybe the policy only applies when an owner complains?
