    A very quick rundown (to be improved upon).

    I want to build a community I want to live in.
    I want to build a community you would want to live in.
    I want to build a community you would like to visit.

    There is no fee to settle in the New Britannian Market, but as the town fills up an eye will be kept on player and vendor activity.

    I do have a limited number of free lots and vendors for those who do not own their own deeds yet, feel free to send me a PM and I'll help you out if I can.

    You'll need to decorate your lots and we will work together to find a good spot for the product you are selling and the type of house you enjoy.

    Currently Seeking:

    1. Nice screenshots of the New Britannian Market.
    2. Someone who would like to run the Spa - great location, and can accomodate up to 4 vendors.
    3. "Anchor Vendors" - Players with lots of products, or guild locations get prime locations, several still available.
    4. Town is currently: Open to new residents and casual vendors.

    I checked it out, and it looks like it has everything required to be successful. Do you have need of a book store there?

    A book store would be grand! I'll send you a PM and we can discuss placement and lot size.

    I'd like to welcome several new members to the town, with the Bookstore and several new vendor locations.

    Phase 1 is filling up, there are still 2 City Lots, 1 Town, and 4 Village lots in Phase 1 and around 12 row locations for vendors.

    I will be growing out the "Marble Square" area.

    Further plans over the next month:

    1) Enhance the second set of crafting stations in the Marble Square to Expert level as that area fills out (the rough stone pavers are temporary until we find out how roads will work, Bone White is the planned look for the entire town1

    2) Bring a few add-ons and pledge vendors online that will pull more traffic (All vendors in town are currently Player Owned not by me).

    3) Bring the Public Vendors online and dedicate some of those to town residents and others to Visitors using the permissions section.
    Currently planned Public Vendor Locations:
    3 @ FireLotus Tavern "The Kicking Hamster"
    2 @ Crafting Station
    2 @ "Birdhenge" Ring of Stones


    Other ongoing Plans:
    Continue to flesh out the museum.
    Town Listing of residents.
    Website!
    Town Signature!
    Plan out site of the coming City-Sized Permanent Maze.

    End of February Announcements

    A Big Welcome to new residents this month, about 15 new residents this month and growing.


    1) Over the past month we filled up the new Marble Market area!

    The Marble Market is a central 2-village lot square with 4 Public Vendors and planned full compliment of Expert Crafting Stations.
    7 Row
    6 Village (3 on the square and 3 near the square)
    1 Town
    1 Village Lot is still available in the square.
    11 player vendors have been placed in the square so far.

    2) Expert Stations for the Marble Market have lagged behind, but the crafting pavilion at the town entrance by the docks as a full set of expert stations. With 6 bankers in the town and one outside the Crafting Pavilion it is always easy to bank your materials. Expert stations are still planned for the Marble Market!

    3) Phase 1 is nearly full in it's entirety! Of the area I envisioned to be "Phase 1" there is now just 3 lots remaining (2 row, 1 village).

    4) Phase 2 South has 9 placed and available lots (6 row, 3 Village). The City Lot is reserved as a future Point of Interest for the town. Garden or Maze options being entertained next to the Gustball field.

    5) Phase 2 North is being booked and currently has 10+ expected occupants already waiting for lot placements. The current booking is 1 city lot, 1 village lot and 12 row lots (we will see how things look when laid out!).

    6) We have 7! placed Devotionals that seemed the most useful. New Britannian Market provides the full level Buff for adventurers and lasts in excess of 16 hours on Feb 26th (it may be higher now). The number of placed Devotionals may increase or decrease depending on the siege mechanic for R40.

    7) Public Vendors is lagging behind, but as with everything I prioritize and so far I am favoring market expansion followed by market refinement. There is a need to be sure players specialize in their vendors and I will do a future quality pass through existing player vendors. Having Public Vendors will allow players who specialize to sell odds and ends through the public vendors. This will help prevent finding house deeds on an armor merchant for example.

    I still expect implementing the Public Vendors to lag behind awhile until much of Phase 2 is laid out.

    8) I still need a website dedicated to the town and to create an Official Museum Thread.


    Finally, as always, the town is free to move to and free to move in to. Dedicated Players can be provided with a Lot Deed, Home & Commission Free Vendor.
    Anyone who would like a place to live may also live without a deed in New Britannian Market, deeds permitting, there are several player initiatives to provide free housing, my own being one of them.

    For anyone who enjoys the museum and the town and would like top contribute to the town's growth and the acquisition or donation of rares for the museum, please contact me to find out how!

    We filled up Phase 1 Entirely!

    1) I managed to squeeze in about 4 more row lots and 2 more village - of those spots there are 2 row lots left, and that's about it for Phase 1 except for:

    2) 1 village lot - centrally located, cannot place a house, must decorate well as a garden type lot and keep your vendor stocked. In exchange you will get a very visible and ideally profitable location in the town.

    3) I'm currently taking names for row/village/town lots in Phase 2 South area - (and 1 city lot if you are willing to use an airship). For now, Phase 2 North is on hold because the Southern side is much easier to incorporate into the main town for now.

    4) Still awaiting Bone White Pavers in road lengths to cut down on deco counts so I can beautify more.

    5) There is a well decorated spooky haunted mansion out on the island that one of our residents put up - I've cleared some trees and built a floating dock out to the island to make your trip there easier!

    6) As a reminder, granite, wood, and cotos always come in handy in the town donation chest (situated on the ring of stones at the front of the town). Every little bit helps make your New Britannian Market a more beautiful place :)

    Update: Went through a redesign that made part of the town a bit easier to navigate, opened new sightlines and ALSO opened up a few choice lots (4 remaining).

    2 new row lots
    Right on the Marble Market, these are reserved for crafters of weapons/armor on this square.

    1 Row Lot
    On the river due south of the Town Entrance on the docks.

    1 Village Lot
    Due south of the Town Entrance, across from the new row lots.

    I've done most of my connecting in-game and messages and not doing many updates.

    A few interesting statistics:
    -Over 100 lots claimed ranging from row to castle.
    -Over 100 player vendors in town.
    -I just had a baby! (Little Matthew Anderson). Expect me to miss more PMs than I currently do. Feel free to bump conversations if I don't respond.
    -Many lots are full, but as centre lots become available they tend to go to existing residents.
    -I think the town can use a few more high end crafted vendors, I'll do my best to get you great placement. We currently have concentrated by the Marble Market: Armors by LoT Guild, Weapons by LoT Guild, Wands by Adam Crow, MageGear Thexedor Markhamm, Sara Dreygon's high-end weapons/armor, Hannah Alpenglow's Bow's and Leather, Gringo's Swords, Dereck Visaard's Rings and Amulets (soon!), Fashions by Tiffani SaintOrange (and more!).
    -Active crafters of goods high and low end (but made intelligently!) will continue to be accomodated and take over this area of the town.

    I am taking reservations for players who would like to do "outdoor" lots, meaning no house. This could be garden or smithy etc., decorated well, and active. These will generally be prime locations in the town.

    Screenshot below with yellow highlighting available areas (send a PM!), but the town continues to grow and change. Eagerly awaiting tools to allow more water lot placements!
