    Thanks for poitnng that out . I do not often look a the old plans because they are fluid, but that helps assuage fears I suspect if folks look at that and again t hey are not subject to change

    Ack yes there is and what I actually thinking of (seems I was not thinking) was to get to the Soltown area without the run. I liked the porter that was there originally. :confused:

    Good question Lace. The current routes we think are final but its a good reminder that we need to audit them to make sure. Stay tuned.

    Would it be possible to ensure no ferry fees are introduced until AFTER primary lot selection?

    idea for chapter 2 or beyond. an uber-like door to door service, for direct transportation from town crier to town crier.. one that costs enough gold and/or crafted items to not be useful every time you wish to travel, but works great if you decide to change hometowns to another continent.
    to be clear, to move your stuff, you have to have it in your inventory, regardless of how overburdened you are - it'll just cost more, depending on how much overburdened you are, over your max.

    @DarkStarr - Can we expect to see deadlines and guide-lines on support requests as we approach (and move past) the final-wipe?

    Some starting questions:

    1. How long in advance would we need to put in a request to move a pledge if buying or selling a pledge.
    2.a. How long in advance of final-wipe to upgrade a pledge to a higher placement tier - ie. the 2300$ for Lord Marshall?
    2.b. Suggestion regarding above - adding in some upgrade tiers might be a good idea in advance of the telethon so people who feel the impulse can upgrade (ie.
    Lord Marshal @2300, Duke@6000, etc.).
    3.a. After final-wipe can a pledge be moved from one account to another if they have a) not logged into the game yet b) logged into the game but not claimed bank rewards c) logged into the game and claimed bank rewards?
    3.b Can the game access/items/properties etc. all be removed from one person's account and hooked to another forum account after paying a fee?
    4.Can a town governership/name/location be changed after final-wipe?

    5. Anything else you can think of that may be useful for an avatar to know after we hit persistence :)

    Edit - @Berek too


    Edit2 - Thanks! https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...transfers-before-and-during-final-wipe.54468/

    Given that the rewards will be persistent once claimed after wipe are there are restrictions rules or constraints people need to be aware of. For example selling or trading items in game seems reasonably straight-forwards but what about for real world money etc. So far this has been pledges and gifting stuff from the account page that had not yet been redeemed, after persistence we'll presumably see people wanting to sell things that have been claimed in game.

    For the Add-on lots portion of lot selection, is there any restriction on who can claim those lots? For example, if I were to sell my secondary lot prior to Group 91, would another player be allowed to place it?

    Deeds are to be locked to accounts and not tradable for the duration of Sprint 32.

    @DarkStarr, @dallas;

    Is it your intention, or would it be possible to at the end of the Land Rush publish statistics on the results? What lots were claimed where, inclusive of all town types, possibly (At least for PRTs and NPC Towns) with measures of maximum occupancy?

    I think seeing the results of the land rush would be Highly interesting, especially after the years of prognostication we've had concerning the event.

    I'd love to see this too. In my view this will be the best insight into the interest the game still holds amongst the backers (well at least the deed holding ones).

    You won't be able to trade deeds between players during Release 32.

    However you could always just claim a plot yourself using that extra deed in Group 91 to reserve a location for that person, then trade it to them in Release 33. They could keep the location or relocate as they choose.

    Does anyone know if there was an updated version of the numbers of pledges in each category since the original post was made?

    It would be very interesting to see the numbers in each category so we know what we're up against!
