Help us save Terra Island

We are starting a fund with 1 million POE in it to try and restore Terra Island to the Jewel it is supposed to be in the Viridian. We are also trying to rectify and repair some of the damage done by us (SX).

Any donations will be welcome and we will highly appreciate it. We want to dust a lot of shoppes and lower taxes on the island, so that I will once again be restored to its former glory. I want to plant trees on Terra and make it the oasis it was meant to be.

All donations can be given to Kalani, Myself or Allirra and We would like anyone donating funds to this project to post a reply to this post so that we can keep tabs on the ppl donating money to the Island's restoration

We might have made a slow start but we are certainly in this for the long haul.

Scabard

I will donate 200k and 25 % of my coffers from all pillages.

Shop owners start sending us your offers on your shoppes, and please make them reasonable =)

Re: Help us save Terra Island

We screwed it up, so now donate money to help us fix it, please. +*+**+*++*+*+*+*.

So, you are saying, that after the ocean trusting you guys to get the job done the first time, you completely booched it, by keeping taxes high and putting on new shoppes, and that you need more money to get back on track? You've had your chance, leave the island, go back to Dendrite, and let someone who is actually competent take it and run it.

Donate to the "Make Terra Free of Idiots" campaign. Hopefully, we get enough money to just buy the damn thing and take it off their hands before they wreak anymore havoc with the economy.

Wow, Des, you totally beat me to this one. Terra doesn't need saving (in my personal opinion), nor does it need a flag that, if they do desire to save the unwilling or unable, to ask the rest of the ocean to do what it can't. Go chat up the people who handled the restoration on Mid. Ask for donations when you have a gameplan in place and have placed the effort behind the gameplan, which you haven't quite yet, obviously.

And when you're done restoring it, give it away as a sign of good faith. Okay? ;)

Re: Help us save Terra Island

You will possibly need close to 20 mil at 800k a shoppe to fix it just to get blockaded again to have the new flag move in and sell those new plot again? Good luck with it.

-/-*--/*/--/*/*-* or something like those thing seem to be in the fad in this thread.

Re: Help us save Terra Island

Why are people actually giving money? "We made our millions selling shoppes, now help us delete those shoppes so our PR can recover."

I respect you guys at SX, but stick to a track. First its liberating SX, then it's further paving it, now its paving it while liberating it?

Please donate 1mil for my own personal funds, I could cause more excitement with it then dusting shoppes.

You know, you can get an absolute emotional read on Kalani by the length of her post glitter. Right now she's pissed at us.

Re: Help us save Terra Island

Very admirable idea considering you (SX) are at the moment constructing a 12th shipyard on Terra.

I'l be nice though, I own 4 shoppes on Terra, and will sell them seperately for:
Distillery: 800K
Weavery: 650K
Apothecary: 950K
Tailor: 1.4 M

Buy them all for 3.5 M (that saves you 300K)

Prices not negotiable, if you don't like them, tough. I am not trying to get rid of them, just offering you some shoppes to possibly buy out to dust.

Welcome to the forums. Slamming folks is what we do here.

Shutting up isn't one of our collective strong suits. That's why we are here. On the forums.

If Scabard, Kalani, and SX really want to make Terra purdy again, they should sell their blockade fleet. It's one or the other, folks, what's it gonna be?

I may just be a loud drunken hobo banging on pots and pans (see another Terra thread, post by- you guessed it - "*+*+*+"), but let's call a spade a spade here. You guys have no idea how to fix the island. You have no plans drawn up. You haven't talked to the people that rebuilt Cnossos on Middy. Zero preperation = SX makes a mockery of itself, again.

On that note, I am more than willing to buy your blockade fleet at extremely low prices. Brigs 5k, Frigs 10. Contact me.

Des,

Also, note that Belgica is being nice. He needs money like the rest of us need skin rashes. Random statement of the day.

Re: Help us save Terra Island

You may slam people, Des, I try not to. Precision always seems to work far better.

I don't see the point of blindly throwing poe at a flag big and strong enough to take Terra in the first place, to be honest, when I haven't a clue where my poe is going. Go forth and brig pillage or something. This is just glorified begging until you have some plans in place and some accountability.

With hugs, DY

Re: Help us save Terra Island

We have indeed tried to contact the person that rebuilt Cnossos, and we are dispaching carrier pigeons as we speak. I have been in contact with people that know him and hence the silence about it. We intend to deliver on promises

Re: Help us save Terra Island

If you do intend to sell your blockade fleet, or just some of it, I can make a relatively decent offer. It's not what you would pay at an SY, but i make them at 85K, so I will offer you 95K per frig. I don't buy war brigs, sorry.

If you do intend to buy the shoppes, just tell me when and they are yours for the prices listed above. Good luck.

Re: Help us save Terra Island

This is not a thread to sell our war fleet.....Our efforts to restore terra will be null and void if we fix it and someone just blockades terra and wins, and then destroys it again. Once again, this thread is intended to ask for co-operation (Not Begging), to help us restore terra. There might be some pleasant surprises to ppl who contribute.

Re: Help us save Terra Island

You're basically saying all Twiggy did was bad. He made a decision as monarch and stuck to it. Now you are pubically saying his decision was bad and it needs rectifying. This seems like an internal problem, not something the ocean needs.

Des,



i appreciate your welcome mate why should they sell their blockade fleet when they are trying to make the island a better place..

selling our ships would leave us unable to defend it when it is a better place and believe me i have no doubt it will be a much better place..

Re: Help us save Terra Island

I think "saving Terra Island" should be "solved"/"done" by the flag itself and not by any non-flagmembers.

Understandable that SX has, mainly, not much to do with the bad condition (in yours eyes) of Terra Island. This doesn't mean that you have to get PoE/help from others not even related to SX. Do it yourself.

SX is too poor to fix it themself?

Re: Help us save Terra Island

True SX did not start the ruining of Terra but to post a thread asking people to donate money to "Save Terra" while they are building yet another shoppe there (of which both the OP and Kalani are managers) looks like a nice money-making scheme: "Give us money so we can dust the shoppes that we are building..."

Re: Help us save Terra Island

I wasn't monarch or govenor which equaled the liberation plan.

I became monarch and govenor and implemented what i wanted to do, and stuck with it.

I no longer fill those roles.

There really are no inconsistancies here or broken promises, just a whole lot of change in leadership. But i do not intend on returning to those roles.

The person who built that shipyard isn't even in the flag anymore.

Hence why the words
 
If you do intend to
were used.

No one said you need to sell the whole fleet, but assuming you have a decent size fleet maybe you could cut a frig out here or there. I'm offering to help in a way that I feel comfortable doing. I feel comfortable selling my shoppes to be dusted, and I feel comfortable paying a relatively good price for ships that might not be needed, the sale poe of which can be used to buy out my shoppes.
