    Pleased to say that Bamboozle and I have come together to expand this community project to the Bamboozle & Ihuma Lofts (BIL)! To celebrate the occasion, we broke some firework boxes (since there is no champagne in-game yet) and unleashed them from the roof of our expanded area at Bamboozle's Loft with our master craftsmen, @dreamlarp (Nexus LLTS) and @Lady Venusada as well as @Bamboozle :D

    [​IMG]

    History
    What seems like a long time ago, I ventured into Owl's Head with the singular goal of making a few coins by selling blades and wares. Over time, I started to collect shiny things and placed them in the Loft. Today, it has become a little museum that showcases treasures that I have collected. As of 3 October 2016, this little labor of love has been opened up for everyone to enjoy right in the heart of commerce :D

    Bamboozle and I have known each other for a long time now. It was a friendship that started over a great conversation over home decorations and related trades in Brittany Estates. Over time, we continued to stay in touch and our business relationship evolved into a budding friendship. As of 30 October, we have now come together to jointly develop this project together, expanding into his lot :)

    Where and where are Bamboozle & Ihuma Lofts?
    BIL can be thought of as a "Home Away From Home" as @Kara Brae once put it.We are 100% agnostic so anyone is welcomed to join us. Whether you already stay in a POT and want a more central staging area, or a lone wolf with no home to call your own, you are welcome to Complimentary Storage at either/both Lofts.

    In our (subtle) protest against outrageous fees at the public vendor, you will be entitled to list up to 10 items at our Commission Free Vendors at either/both Lofts - watch out Ronald! We will publicize listings at a separate post (link).

    PLEASE READ: By default, you will be granted access to storage and vendors at both Lofts.

    [​IMG]

    How to join us?
    To date, we have over 30 avatars in the Loft. Please contact us in-game or PM Ihuma (Singapore timezone) or Bamboozle (US timezone) if you like to join us.

    PLEASE READ: While other avatars will not have access to your chest, we will have access to your chest as the lot owners. That is a risk that you should be aware of.

    Walkthrough with Pictures
    • Bamboozle's Loft, a cozy tavern for the tired avatar after a hard day of hunting (or trading). I could just stand there for hours chatting with friends, because it feels just like home.
    [​IMG]
    • Ihuma's Loft, a museum that showcases our prized collection of rares that can be found in our world. We aim to collect 1 of every rare in the game :D
    [​IMG]
    • Here are our crafting areas with +5 expert stations, which are seconds away from the town center. Bamboozle's Loft has them nicely parked at the front while Ihuma's Loft has them scattered throughout the interiors.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    • Over 30 avatars have setup storage at Ihuma's Loft and we have more space available over at Bamboozle's Loft. What are you waiting for? :D

    Awesome job, Ihuma!

    This time I'll refrain from shouting at you to return home to the Crash Site for piloting duties.

    Instead,

    YOUR FIRED!!! *Grins*

    This is a great idea and they have figured out how to ensure that the owner of the chest is the sole (other than the actual property owner) of the chest and it contents. So your stuff should be secure and I am pretty sure these guy are on the up and up.



    Awesome job decorating though and AWSOME idea - - - -

    This was a very big concern for us. We tested permissions extensively and found a workaround that allowed only the stayer and the lot owner to acess the specific stayee's chest. Key is to have the stayee set his chest as private. Only the lot owner can override that privacy.

    Indeed :D

    There are two sets of permissions... to remove/add decorations and remove/add items in containers. What we do is set co-owners only for remove/add decorations (so the glorious loot arent looted by bandits!) and set kindred only for remove-add items in containers. But like you said, the latter still allows all stayees (as kindred) to loot all chests. We solve that by adding a security layer by having stayee set their specific chest private :)

    Long term, we may introduce a trustee status for stayees to use our vendors to sell items. It appears listings are avatar-specific so no dangers of people taking off someone else's items. But we will carefully test to be sure of the security.

    @Berek Know that there are already plans, and we look forward to better permission management in the future :D

    One thing to keep in mind is that the player vendor only allows up to 100 items to be listed by everyone combined. You can't really remove the items that were listed by individuals either. You will need to put the vendor back into your inventory, which send the items to the bank of the people who list those items accordingly.

    I hope the upcoming rental system will address the item access protection and the better player vendor listing (or at least increase the cap to 4000).

    Yes and thanks for pointing that out. In the interim, we may have to ask folks to limit their listings to about 10-20 items each, on a voluntary basis.

    Opened up 1 vendor for house guests. Currently on voluntary basis - 10 listings per avatar.

    We may open up 2 more vendors if demand picks up. Watch out Ronald!

    Six avatars have joined our community at Owl's Head.

    Our area is currently spotting a Halloween theme... planning for Winter theme closer to December.

    P.S. Decorations beside each chest are complimentary from the house :D

    This is an incredibly generous thing for your guild to do @Ihuma and I think this is the right way to go since we need to attract more people to this game.

    Thanks @Pepsy and @Numa! Pleased to say that we have almost 10 avatars that have setup storage at BLoB Loft.

    Our guest vendor is now stocked with a good variety of resources, chain armor (high end and reasonably priced if I may add) and weapons :D
