Announcements of major changes to Salem.

Sounds like Stalls

Postby JohnCarver » Sat Oct 04, 2014 3:36 am

Greetings Pilgrims,

To get back on our planned schedule of one patch a month, we're doing a small patch for October, but I think you'll agree, this one still adds a lot to the game.

This month's patch not only features Player Run Stalls, but also a package of new Sound Effects that should make your base, and the rest of Salem feel a lot more alive.

New Content:

Player Run Stalls

New Skill Mercantilism required to own a stall.
Stalls may now be purchased in Boston.
Stalls may now hold up to 1,000 Items for sale.
Stalls now sell 10 things.
Stall's weekly upkeep will be offset by the amount of silver that has been taxed. For example, if you owe 200 Silver in upkeep, and 50 Silver has been taken in taxes, you only owe 150 Silver for that week.
Tax on each stall will be 35%.
A single player may own no more than a single stall.
A % of revenue from the stalls will go to the Bank Account of the Mayors of the top 10 Towns on the Server.
Stalls nearer Boston will cost more to buy initially than Stalls farther away.


Challenge Authority
As referenced above, His Majesty has decided to reward the top towns on the colony with lucrative tax refunds. He is sure that his support in silver, will reciprocate your support in no slandering his stall nor invoking any sudden need for the “R” word.

That being said, some members of the Colony may feel the need to Challenge the Authority of these towns. By doing so, it will lower the stance of these ‘Top 10’ towns with Mr Bryberry, and effectively increase your town’s position standing. With this in mind here is how the mechanic works:

A Challenge Authority reduces the ‘Represented Authority’ of a town it is placed on in the following increments each hour [20,40,80,120,120,120…..].

Keep in mind, Represented Authority is only used for calculations of the Tax refunds. These may not be used to lower the Authority metric used for ‘paying for your bell’.

A Challenge Authority must be built ON the enemy towns claim itself to be effective. Doing so leaves no scents, nor is it a crime. It is every good colonists right to challenge the authority of the top 10 towns if they feel the Tax Refunds are not being distributed fairly to all citizens.

Towns will passively Regenerate their Represented Authority to the tune of 240 Authority per day.

Each hour that passes will ring the Town Bell and the Challenge Authority Bell so that players may ‘hear’ their authority being challenged. It will also throw a Village chat Message alerting the town that it’s authority is being Challenged.

We look forward to see if any colonists who are displeased with the status quo factions are willing to do something about it in the form of Challenging their Authority.


Town Changes

Border Stones are now the Political Object used to extend the border of a town. They claim the previous land size of a Cross of Saint George and add 90 authority now. Their drain has been reduced and larger towns are now cheaper to pay for.

Border stones are now significantly more materials to build.

Cross of Saint George now add 360 Authority but cost a much higher per day usage. They are only meant for raising authority for the purpose of eminent domain or the standing with Mr. Bryberry. They do not claim any land.

Political Objects must be spaced away a minimum distance away from each other. Border stones have a fairly large radius in which they must be separated. Crosses, are less.

Legacy Political Objects should behave as they always have. Therefore, players should not need to make any changes to their existing authority objects. However, they may not see the same benefits of reduced authority drain until they do.

P.S. Before anybody whines or complains... The stalls are going to be cheaper the farther down the row you go. So if you don't care about having those closest to the boston square hold out until I update the ones at the back.
