    Postfest Village Draft

    So, I've PM'd a number between 1 and 100 to mortellan. Those interested in writing an article for the village should pick a number between 1 and 100, and post it here. How close the guesses are to the actual number will determine who gets to pick from the list of locations first.

    If you are not going to write an article, don't guess.

    My father knows very little about football. I grew up watching Payton play. IMHO the greatest running back of all time. In his entire 13 year career he had one pro bowl offensive lineman. Many of the other running backs had several. Sweetness even played QB better then most of the quarter backs that played for the bears.

    Any more bidders? This is open to everyone, so sign up by choosing a number. I'll leave this open for maybe week more, just in case there are any stragglers. In the meantime, I will be finalizing the locations list that people will be choosing from. Each person will be choosing main location (i.e. the more interesting choices). Each person will also be choosing a simple farm location unrelated to their main location choice, the inhabitants of which can have some interesting background/local intrigue angles, as even regular farm folk can be interesting enough (though not all of them obviously need to be).

    Sorry, Ceb. I told others in PMs . . . my choice is "left-overs." Cool

    You always need a guy like that. I'll take what no one else wants. Just let me know. Wink

    -Actually, I'd like to wait and see what the "main" locations are. I might be willing to "donate" mine in lieu of doing an additional "regular farm folk" location. Of course, if no one wants that "main" location, I'll do it, but I get the feeeling most people would rather do the "flashy" stuff. I love the supposedly mundane. Any problem with that?

    EDIT: Should have read the whole thread before posting, but the offer stands. Perhaps I can fight with M-S over the scraps? Evil Grin Laughing Actually, it looks like there will be dozen of "regular" habitations, so maybe we'll end up with a full village! Wink

    Well, as I have heard no decending vote, it is my intent to go with a bowyer/fletcher. With supporting elements for the woodcarver/ carpenter for the town. So my selection will base from that.

    So it has come to this, two of my "best friends" wishing Honey Boo Boo's mother on me! Sad

    Now I have to add both of them to my Infamous Key story, just so I can . . . kill them off! Evil Grin

    Or have them "party" on The Strip and . . . catch something! Shocked


    Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Seems to me (maybe I missed it) it makes sense to determine the who before the where?
    If not, isn't a possability to end up with the Tanner at the market Square in the middle of town??
    Could certainly explain the "spread out " layout of "downtown".... Shocked

    The "who" will be the "where", and vice versa. For instance, if somebody picks the Inn, shock and amazement, they will be writing up the innkeeper, the inn's staff, and, if they want to do so, any oddball guest who might so happen to be there. If somebody chooses the Fletcher, they will write up the fletcher and his home/workshop. Choices will be named for the business or the main person, and include the other. It will make sense. You'll see. Wink

    I think DLG was referencing "location," Ceb.

    The Inn will be on the town square, but where -- exactly -- will the smelly Tanner be located? North of the square? Northwest? Southeast? Etc.

    At least, I think that's what he meant. Laughing

    Okee dokee. Hopefully this will address any further questions (for now at least).

    This draft thread is just to determine the order in which people get to pick from the main locations, and I will let you know where they are located. General locations would be "village center" (within the palisade walls), "outer village" (just outside the palisade walls), "village outskirts" (on the fringes of the outer village), "outside the village" (i.e. beyond the village outskirts). I will also try to at least have a hand drawn map (with numbered locations) of the "village center" and "outer village" areas. Locations in the "village outskirts" or "outside the village" will not be placed, so the authors can place them.

    While people are writing up their offerings, I will see if I can find somebody who will do a nice map of the village for us. Everyone is free to include maps of their own locations as part of their submissions, though I urge people to keep in mind that this village is somewhat simple, meaning that the are of the buildings should not be that big. Here is a good rule of thumb for the "footprints" of various locations:

    Small homes: 100-200 sq. ft.
    Medium homes/small businesses: 200-500 sq. ft.
    Large homes/medium businesses: 600-1000 sq. ft.
    Large business: 1000-1500 sq. ft.

    That will likely include any outbuildings too, with maybe one exception. There shouldn't be any building with a footprint bigger than 30 ft. x 50 ft. in this village- even the Inn/Tavern.

    So, the format for locations would be...

    Name: location; size; population.

    ...which would look something like this:

    1. Inn/Tavern: village center north; large business, 8-10 villagers + possible guests (if you want to mention any).

    2. Village Elder's Home: village center west, large home, 5-8 villagers.

    Etc. Everyone takes the basic info and runs with it. Don't ask me for any other details. I will provide a bit more detail in the next thread.

    Everyone will see the list and map before picking, and nobody will be able to pick until those who are entitled to pick before them have picked, and picking main locations will be the subject of the next thread. I have no Pathhawk/Greyfinder session to prepare for this weekend, so I will work on getting things ready instead.

    Yep Your Clairvoyance extends to Texas.... If its Big C's intent to pre-determine business locales Im good with that, just didn't see someone picking the tanner and putting it next to the town well across from the Inn Shocked
