Hold up. Why would the rooms require locks that prevent the entry of anyone ICly or OOCly? If someone enters, you inform them OOCly that it is locked if it is. I do not trust OOCly lockable rooms.

During the occupation, Mazus installed a variety of chapterhouses throughout the city, at the time they headquartered the Phoenix Intelligence Network (Later Blackwatch) and Liberation Army soldiers. It's reasonable to expect that even had the crown not stuck such in the district initially, the city watch would have annexed the facilities. *nod* Fighter's Guild... That's a silly concept and one we should absolve. There is the city guard, no one else.

I wouldn't mind seeing an outdoor sparring arena again. At one point, Mage's Guild tests were conducted there and people actually RP'd spars there. There was a point when RP did occur there.

Meh... I thought over what you said, Sirum, and nix on the locks. We'll just have rooms. ^^

Yes, there will be a library (a two-story one, at that) and an outdoor arena with healing spells. The not-healing bit sucks.

We will have a chapter of the City Guard, including barracks - in my own personal mind, the Mercantile district has an eastern gate leading out of the city, for quick passage to the highroads for merchants. So there're also going to be a couple of watchtowers on either side of the gate that extend very high into the air, as part of the outer wall defense. They'll be flyin' Ansteorra's colors.

There'll also be a small forest area, including a pond and stream (so they actually make -sense-), a few campfires in the woods, and maybe Fen's cave/a cave in general (if she actually reads this post and IMs me saying she'd like it. Otherwise I"m not gonna bother since she hardly comes around.) Now all those cave MQs, those forest-creature attacks can be RPed IN THE DREAM YIPPEE SKIPPY!

We shall have no more of this 'extraneous dream' nonsense. Very few current RP dreams have a ton of members whose personal dreams are used more than the main one. We can hold a lot of our MQs right here in teh city, where they belong. ^_^

As decided beforehand by you, the playerbase...

As it is, the docks are downstairs because Ansteorra is a big plateau, and the spring/garden area is a memorial to the old castle as well as just a nice place to hang out, and is completely artificial (water is pumped, some druid grew the trees overnight, etc).

The initial description of Ansteorra city was something to the effect of, a large plateau (think that place in New Mexico) that was situated near a major crossroads. Developed a bit more, it's a small trading/merchant area down by the road, and then you go up a gently graded (very gently - the plateau is less than 90 feet up, and you loop it twice. I did the math once, and it's like 3 degrees up from a flat plane) road, when you get into what we think of as "ansteorra city". Also, dwarves have lived here for awhile, so there's a wacky sewer system that honeycombs the entire place - labyrinthine doesn't begin to describe it. Also, the plateau overlooks the crescent sea, so that's what's up with our docks - it's a long series of ladders and steps, along with a system of cranes to bring cargo directly up into the city.
You see, I have an obsession with making geologically improbable locations that are easy to defend to the point of general silliness.

SO that's that. If you'd all like, I can sketch out a couple roughs of what the areas of the city are.

Also, BATMAN!!!

Batman sucks. Localspecies1 should be FOUR's object.

Just imagine everyone floating around as a giant blue ball.

Fen lives outside the city. No need to put her estate in-dream, Shayde. Ever. It wouldn't fit, it's like an underground mansion with fields and a stable and groves aboveground.


>.> But the finished product of the dream...could use some polishing for aesthetics.

A lot of folks have access to the dream, ask one of them to edit it if you're desperate to get changes made.

See sticky: I'm not really around anymore.
