These little guys cause some big tempers when they get found instead of something more glamorous. I love those little jerks so here's a few ideas to improve the experience with them.

First, and this is huge, give them their own set and static location. Likely somewhere closer to the Peerage/Ponds side so they have another reliable low/mid level soloable quest option.

Second the loot is a bit iffy. Vendor trash like tiny sacks of gold and tiny piles of gem don't really feel rewarding. Mind you the other items are super thematic and I like most of it.

Third add in some mobile defenses or wandering 'giant' monsters that come up to a human's knee.

Journals and Musings / Scraps of paper in the pack of a goblin
« on: June 16, 2019, 11:19:15 AM »
Griblak. I don't even understand why you took such a shine to me. A strange new goblin thrown into what should have been your tribe. You accepted me, and soon after looked to me for guidance. I'm no shaman or chief, but just a mutant. You? You beat the others into order. You carried the stone I could not. You wanted nothing more than to see the world's riches to me.

The others followed me because you did. Will Filth even recognize me? I am alone now, and by the fires in His eyes I am cursed to be aware of it. That's right. I never will get to finish telling you the story of the goblin in the sky now.

[This book is kept in the pack of Mitzi Metz]

Anybody who snatchifies my journal, this is a list of people and other stuff, and how to help me remember them. Names and proper nouns are really a trouble for me to remember. Nothing personal! Smooch smooch.

Retainers who wear helmets
Ugh! Uniforms make things so hard for me! At least when they don't wear helmets every waking moment I can try putting specific facial features to a name.

Pretty Velstra mage - I want to say... Catariah? Katelynn?
I don't interact with her much but she always seems friendly. The rest of the Velstrans are kind of stuffy. Poor House, what happened to you that made you so cold and distant? I'll be your lighthouse! Come to Cape Friendly!

Miss Squire - Leslie Leselle
One of those oath people. I guess she likes ladies or something. I won't judge. Her armor falls apart a lot, but I think she's working on fixing it. Do your best, Miss Sq Leselle!

Thankfully she's happy being called Auntie. Another Glitt. Shock shock shock, they're all friendly. Favorite house, easy peasy. Gotta remember to find more tinker stuff for her.

Mr. Shiny - Bodan Bolero Not sure
Another oath person, I think he likes storybook heroics. Fits the brand so I should like him more but something about him feels weird. I can tell he's a good guy at the very least. I bet if I go on a few more adventures with him everything will click in place.

Bank Man - Oscar something, I think
I know he didn't mean to make me feel bad, I'm a strange one with names after all. Still, he could use better branding. Maybe if I become important and get to talk to him I can give him some ideas. Or gasperiffic, I can save up a ton of gold and get a statue built for him. Not like I have anything else I'm spending on.

Halberd guy - Pretty sure I heard him called Kowl
I remember he couldn't figure out how to help me when ghosts hurt my head, but that's ok. I wasn't really able to convey what was going on at the time anyways. Now that I've watched him fight I know that he's pretty tough. Also friends with a bunch of people so that's good. Maybe I'll buy him a present?

A loser.

Do not misunderstand, I too understand the value of family and agree that pushing your brothers and sisters to the side for personal gain should be scorned. In cases similar to Nailah and Vallen I would fully agree that unconditional exile is appropriate. I also believe allowing them to join a house after forsaking another was foolish.

What I disagree with you on is a case of "one condition met with one punishment". It is too broad a stroke to paint in. The previous two I would fully endorse their exile. In the case of Kush he was ejected from the house, but given opportunity to find redemption in the eyes of the house which he turned down. Forced removal would not show his oath broken by choice, but he does choose to remain in Ticker without taking the task given or one of equal merit.  A lesser punishment would be more fitting for this case in my opinion.

It could be considered as a lesser punishment to allow entry, but without right to bare arms or armor as well as being disallowed from covering their face while in the ward. This does open a glaring hole in terms of undetectable warding, but these are merely musings to consider over discussion with other houses and such matters can be considered later.

Do note that I have no desire to press the issue publicly. I only seek to present more rational ideas for consideration. In the end you do as you will.

Suggestions / "Buff" Ward Area
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:06:35 PM »
An odd fit for the suggestion forum, as it's not a change to mechanics but behavior. As it stands every use of this spell I've heard of and witnessed has been instantly dispelled by a DM. It's already a very situational spell, allowing it to have an unseen foe wave it away like a puff of smoke makes it entirely useless.

Dispelling Ward Area isn't so bad, but not at no risk. Should only be dispelled by something with a line of effect.

Ser Nicholas

I write to express gratitude for mercy you have shown, and for appreciation of the conduct you put forth. Though Ronchelles has shown that he desires no camaraderie  with myself, he was at one time considered friend. I would have been willing to bargain for his safety with a bloodthirsty man had you not intervened. By arriving you had prevented a number of unpleasant scenarios, and for this I thank you.

Advertising Litter / Fashion Contest
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:12:38 AM »
[Posted up in several locations, these fliers are very neatly written]

"There will be a fashion contest in five four three two one days time.

Participants are to design clothing with the intent that the lovely Miss Nelia will be wearing them regularly, keeping in mind her shoulder-slung black cloak over it. All outfits will be handed over to the host, still Nelia, the day of the contest.

Each outfit will be modeled and shown off to the spectators. A panel of judges will then deliberate on which three are the highest quality. The final three masterpieces will be put to vote of public opinion, and the spectators will make the final call.

The winner will receive a  bundle of potion goods of value in excess to the base price of the outfit. The current estimated value being near one thousand groat. A large sum of coin, currently 2000 groat and growing. Should any donations be given for rewards the finalists will choose between the bundle and all other prizes in descending order of their placement.

-One entry per designer allowed
-Regular clothing only
-Designers and spectators may volunteer to model
-Judges will be chosen the day of the contest to prevent bias
-Any person who makes a donation for prizes will be allowed an order to be made at cost from Nelia's crafted wares, or another comparable favor.

Remember! The more sales Nelia sees, the bigger the potion reward will end up being. Speak with her for any and all questions.

Bug Reports / Re: No shipments after reset

Happened again. More information then. This was Herbert Huntwheedle in Ticker Square. I had passed the appraise check, and this time the only anomalous thing about my situation is I had logged off.

Bug Reports / No shipments after reset

I had paid Herb the 200 gold for a shipment, and before delivery was made there was a reset. Afterwards I only had the option to place a new order.
