    So! It looks like there's life in her yet.

    The Tavern guild had a fair few discussions over the past few days, in particular regarding the fate of our little Crossroads-Village. Unsurprisingly, the guild discussed the settlement's name. With a great deal of pleasure I can announce that, by an overwhelming majority, the community will once more reclaim the name Beran's Reach as its own.

    With humble aspirations, Beran's Reach will aim to stand faithful to its original tenets of providing an open and welcoming sanctuary to all. Not only will it provide a setting for The Bear Tavern, it will also forge a path as a vibrant and active contributor to The Beran League. Whether looking for a place to trade, a home to settle, or a place to sip a pint of Ale by a roaring fire, then Beran's Reach provides an ideal setting.

    We'll provide more information on our plans over the course of the next few days. Probably once the hangovers have passed.

    I'm happy to announce that Beran's Reach is growing! We've just grown to town size, with our donations program bringing us half way to City in the same day. We'll be kicking off a range of discussions which we plan to open to as wide a community discussion as possible. So! If you fancy getting involved, or just provide a bit of input, please visit our site and post away.

    Well, looks like you can't keep a good idea down. I'm happy to announce that we've jumped from Town to a Metropolis in a matter of days, the ol' girl will be up and running for R26! We're pulling together the initial write-up, however our current design is as follows. A current track of plot availability can be found here, suffice to say that we've got some decent space left for those interested. We're finalising plot requests and sorting out the issue of plots shortly after New Year's Day, so, please get in contact with me if you're interested. We're kicking off a range of discussions here which all are welcome to get involved with.

    Exciting times ahead!

    The OP, Duke Vallas, is the guild leader for the Bear Tavern.

    Not certain what else you'd like to know about but feel free to ask and we'll do our best to answer.

    I guess i dont really understand the concept of a POT. So if you buy one of these, you actually work with the dev team on a unique desigm of your own? Or is it more cookie cutter than that?

    A POT is a Player-Owned Town. It's as it sounds, it's an in-game Town that is owned and ran by a player. They can influence where they are located in game, the terrain, can place and control plot locations on the map, can specific whether they are PVP-enabled and to a certain extent control access. They vary dramatically in size, from small holdfasts to the massive Metropolis, and will have a certain unique flavour based on who lives there. So, there's a fair bit to consider. :)

    The dev team will consult with the owner to get the admin sorted. Fairly light-touch stuff, no major tweaking. The only exception is if you're willing to sell a relative and pay for a custom map, however since few have the monumental amounts of money required they're somewhat few and far between. :)

    So your town can have everyday citizens who live in them too? How do you go about arranging geating your own plot or loft?


    I'm getting excited!

    We have a Metropolis, bags of space which is open to everyone. :) It's absolutely free, so if you fancy settling there you're welcome to. We're going through the process of issuing plots in preparation for Release 26 infact. If you'd like to live there, just register at www.thebeartavern.org and apply here. We'll sort out the rest. :)

    Pardon my ignorance, but do you have to own a house yourself first? Or the town grants you one? How do server wipes work with doing all this before launch?

    You have to own a deed to a house. They range from little row houses (which are $100), or have a deed as part of ever-growing pledges (which range from village houses right up to castles). If you have a deed, you can claim a plot at either a player or NPC town. That's something we can help with. Every server wipe you have to claim a plot and rebuild, luckily these are few and far between, with player town plots assigned typically to individuals so no land rush headaches.
