Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia - Building Naming Contest - Win 10k per name!



Wicked Peace is attacking Brynhild!

This Saturday at noon game time there will be a sinking blockade on Ilha da Aguia. JC's for the event will be the wonderful ladies Keight and Bensisco.

Join Wicked Peace in their attempt to take the Island of the Eagle (translated from Portuguese) away from the BK Brynhild. If Wicked Peace wins the island, here is a taste of what to expect:

    -Mature and dedicated management.
    -Island theme will be based off songs from the band "The Eagles."
    -Stall-keeper opportunities.
    -We will not be paving the island with shoppes. One shoppe probably, two tops. We have not decided which yet.
    Shipyard bazaar for charts!
    -Housing! Still debating which kind, probably an affordable row house, cottage, or something similar.
    -Looking into the possibility of buying arch fruit!

    NEW:
    -Building naming contest! Win 10k for each name that is used! We will also add your name to the building news. All building names should be puns of song titles by The Eagles.

Shipyard bazaar for charts!


If memory serves you can buy charts from a shipyard, not sure if you can buy them at the bazaar though. If that's useful information or not, I don't know...

Not from the bazaar itself but the stalls inside the bazaar.

Edit to add: This theme almost writes itself...especially if you include solo works of the band members. It even gives you a couple of cop out names for any kind of building, which is always nice in a naming theme. In 30 minutes....

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

Yes thats correct. Charts are purchasable from a shipyard stall, thus the reason for the shipyard bazaar. We've been discussing building plans and we are seriously leaning towards no shipyard shoppes on the island.

Of course this might change. But I doubt it.

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

Keep the names coming :P

If any name from this thread gets used. The person suggesting it will get 10,000 poe. Note, royalty of Wicked Peace not included.

Here's some I thought of the other day:

Such A Lovely Plaice (fort or inn)

Learning to Bend Steel (IM)

Premades All in a Row (SY)

Bankin to the Limit (bank or again perhaps inn).

Another think we'll be doing during the blockade:

Represent! Represent!

Twice during each round the Brigand King still has ships on the board, someone from WP will shout REPRESENT! REPRESENT! in crew chat. All jobbers should reply by shouting the names of their flags. We'll be giving away the following ships as prizes:

First Place flag will receive a War Frig

Second place flag will receive a War Brig

Third Place flag will get a dhow

Fourth place flag gets a sloop.

Ships will be delivered no later than 2 weeks from the end of the cade, and we will pay swabbing costs to any island on Hunter. We will only deliver the frigs to the flag's monarch or someone designated by the monarch.

Will you build island to spawn greenies once population is high enough?

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

They won't have room for the things required to spawn greenies if they build a shipyard bazaar.

Spawning greenies into an otherwise empty archipelago would be a very very very bad idea. I would personally unretire to come smack them silly if they even started building those sort of buildings.

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

Just an FYI, here are the greenie Island Spawn requirements:

 
A greenie's initial home island will always be a well-developed island with a large population. Specifically, the island must have an inn, a shack, an ironmonger bazaar, a tailor bazaar, and a population of at least 250.

If a required building, or the required population level, is lost, greenies will not be sent to that island until it is regained.

When an island meets the requirements to spawn, it is immediately able to spawn greenies without Ringer intervention, though greenies may not be directed to the island right away.

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

If they hopefully open Hubble's Eye, and they make both islands a greenie spawns, it leaves two extra spots per island, four in total. For example: One islands builds a weavery and shipyard bazaar, and the other one builds a distillery and an Apoth bazaar.
Two more greenie spawns and basically offers all the shoppes needed for a decent economy (Furniture bazaar is IMO the less useful bazaar of all)

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

Ok, I don't speak as the final word or anything, but I have been in on plans for the island. Right now the plan is to not SPAWN greenies, but we wouldn't mind if greenies made it home. We have been talking about what kind of housing we want, and while I would prefer a Villa in that arch, the consensus has been something more afforadable. Along those same lines, we want to cater to the general population by having more bazaars instead of shoppes. Hopefully a diverse economy will attract people and pillagers.
So, so far the plan is for a Palace, Inn, Cheap Housing, SY Bazaar, IM or Distill Bazaar, IM or Distill shoppe, and one other bazaar. Could be a tailor or furnisher, WP will have to discuss it further...

Spawning greenies into an otherwise empty archipelago would be a very very very bad idea.

While it wouldn't necessarily be very nice thing to do at the moment, if it isn't at least planned for, chances of it ever happening get much lower.

Eagle doesn't have any larges, and only two mediums. Our currently colonized mediums are not very busy, and if Ilha will have that level of activity I don't see many stall owners there in future...

 
So, so far the plan is for a Palace, Inn, Cheap Housing, SY Bazaar, IM or Distill Bazaar, IM or Distill shoppe, and one other bazaar. Could be a tailor or furnisher, WP will have to discuss it further...

You might be wanting weavery there, too?

If there's a shipyard bazaar, then a weavery bazaar is a Good Th ing (TM), so the SYs can get their sailcloth without having to import it from another arch.

I am going to second the idea of Hotel California for the Inn. It's just too perfect.....

Just a note, if a jobber is from a crew that's independent of any flag, they're going to get shafted on the ship draw... ;)

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

Ok, so for any Iron Monger bazaar or shoppe, I think the name would be Hole in the World

I was thinking because canonballs and swords can make holes in stuff. If you havent heard that one, it is great, it gets everyone singing ^_^

And for the palace, you could use Desperado, because It says something about a Queen xD

*edited to add the linky for the song, and the other idea I had lol.

Re: Save the (Island of the) Eagles! Wicked Peace Blockades Ilha da Aguia

ok I got sick of editing, but I am a fan of the Eagles and I just thought of another idea. I think that Take is Easy should be the name for any Distilleries. Because he was drunk and distilleries make rum.
