1 pointHalf a year Half a year it has been since the founding of the fledgling settlement of New Moonbrook. Whilst the Orcs relocate to Haven, Drustgarde burns and strife seems to fill the land around them, the golden lion of Stormwind and the Grand Alliance endures. It has not been an entirely smooth sailing so far and this missive in the annals of the settlement's history is somewhat of a 'recap' of events so far as well as highlighting some advances the settlement has made (these are by no means in chronological order) Rescued a large chunk of the Alliance Combined Arms Brigade including their acting commander Corporal Jeremy Thorne. Leo-Lupus pact formed in retaliation to unchecked influence of Haven in terms of possessing artefacts. Currently disbanded. A magus from the Opej magic academy on the north-western shore has been stationed outside the town to observe and work on the arcane rift. Construction of an outpost on the Isle of Kolai following Haytham's destruction of the Razorbranch has commenced, it has been named 'Haytham's Landing' in his honor. 'Sir' Alistair Roux of Egtown has been working hard to complete a number of bounties aimed at dealing with threats to New Moonbrook. Coporal Thorne is now a questgiver within the town dealing with the bandit problem on Opej. Haytham's Landing lost to bandits. Multiple wounded, no dead from New Moonbrook. Corporal Thorne received a promotion due to his loyalty to New Moonbrook and persistence in taking action against local threats. He is now Sergeant Thorne Private Garret stationed at Haytham's Landing was promoted to Corporal Garret for quick thinking in escorting his comrades and covering them whilst they fled back to Haven. Construction has begun on a foundry intended to produce firearms en masse for protection as well as producing cannon for defence. Construction on the New Moonbrook bathhouse has been completed, allowing residents access to hot water and bathing facilities.
1 pointWhere: Haven Market Square (in front of Daydra's shop) When: Saturday 11th January 21:00-23:00 server-time. Who: Anyone currently not banned from Haven Event Type: Merchant / Economy / Social GM Assistance: Not required unless they wish to DM NPCs wanting to buy goods. A crier would make their way around the Doldrums from High Hearth and Grom'Goshar to Tordala and Hafthor's Keep bearing the colours of New Moonbrook yet upon their arm would be a band bearing the colours of Haven "To the esteemed denizens of the Doldrums! By decree of Baron West of New Moonbrook and bearing the authority from Matron Mel of Haven there is to be held a Grand Market within the township of Haven! This shall be upon the 11th day of January at 9 tolls of the bell in the evening! Those wishing to attend will be required to pay a fee of ten silver pieces upon entry to the market and a sum of 25 silver pieces should they wish to erect a stall, all proceeds from this venture shall go towards the people of Sotoras currently residing in Haven who have lost much at the hands of the vile Razorbranch Trolls! Unless merchants already own or rent a spot within the marketplace, a plot shall be put aside for the duration of the market with attendees bringing their own stall. It is required that any who wish to set up a stall for such an occasion should contact Baron West with details such as who shall be manning the stall and what goods are to be plied! Any questions of the occassion should also be directed to the Baron!" After his announcement, the crier would roll up the parchment he read from before making his way to the next town with a pair of burly guardsmen flanking him. OOC: Ahoy folks A nice new-year's event to get you all into the swing of things and encourage some mercantile RP. The event is being held at Haven's marketplace: Those wishing to set up stalls are required to drop me a PM either via the forum or through discord with who is running the stall and what is being sold. Please please please try to focus on something special rather than just being a junkyard salesmen trying to make a quick few silver off any old crap you have in your bags, i'd strongly advise either using one of the existing RPG professions or perhaps even Gryphonheart Items (the blue backpack icon on your screen) if you are competant with it. Those wishing to attend as merchant you will be granted a designated plot and you'll be allowed to come decorate it as you see fit on the day of the event so you've got hours beforehand. If you already have an arrangement with Mel to rent a plot there then you may do so as and when you see fit (as Tim has done in the above screenshot) The event entry fee is 10 silver for attendees and 25 for those pitching a stall with all proceeds to be donated to the Sotorans after the event. Any questions, drop me a line! - Dasc
