interest in an RP store?


Recommended Posts

I am checking interest in buying from or helping with a store thats really just for RPers

 

Selling stuff like good resist suits, weps, potions, regs etc at good prices, the stuff rpers need that sometimes are not right there

 

Now i dont know if there is really a market for it! so im checking, guna post in a few places. Probably would not really be profitable, more just for the community

 

I figure a neutral location is best, i own a house in luna that i would be willing to dedicate the downstairs to RP vendors or something, the roof has the "uber" vendors

 

if your interested post here or icq me 387-985-674

 

thanks!

The RP community like to by normal furniture for their houses too, and for those without crafters they have to drag themself from shop to shop looking for the stuff! Bad memories from before I got myself a crafter character :P

 

And now people know I have a crafter it's "Van, can you make me this.. make me that?".

I think a dedicated RP store is a good idea.

 

While we try to provide work for our civilians in Cove by placing orders with them, sometimes it's not always practical, especially for more specialised goods and I just hate the thought of using mule alts providing for main characters.

 

Perhaps you could provide free vendor spots for RP traders to peddle their wares too? I'd be interested in one for my trader.

 

I think good RP suits, weapons, bolts, arrows, potions, regs, recalls, petals, fruit bowls, enchanted apples, furniture, decor, plants and probably many other "non magical" items would sell well.

 

Hopefully at prices RPers can afford. ;)

Dedicated RP store could be really good aye, but its also nice to RP out purchases like ordering and delivering. So like ordering a load of balanced suits from S&K, and then picking them up and transporting them back. Ordering a couple of crates of ale from the Swaggers and having them deliver it to you. Makes a nice little event out of it and creates RP.

But people can't always do that so a dedicated RP store could be nice for supplies and furniture with suitable prices of course.

Yea the balanced suits came from Dev :) or thats where i thought of it haha i used to buy my suits there

 

All the RP vendors would of course be free, any artie type none RP stuff would need to go upstairs, but the more vendors other people put in the better :)

 

I have a mule so can do a lot of the mule stuff, but looking for people who would be willing to stock vendors. Would be great to RP around it too, however i dont know how well that would work in some cases. But i thought i would check interest and line up some help before actually doing anything :)

 

RAA used to be where i bought my RP stuff but less and less of the stuff i need seems to be there :/

 

My only concern using my luna house is putting cheap prices that draw non rpers buying out potions arrows and stuff like that

 

so location is completely open to debate too

 

i just figured having a completely neutral spot be good, like when S&K left trinsic area in an RP sence trinsic guards should not buy them, just for example

Hahahahaha..!!

 

But seriously, a RPer-friendly shop is something we need. Yeah we can get bits and bobs from scattered places such as RAA and Co. but would be really helpful and handy to have it all on sale at the one place. If you want to engage in the RP of it then that's up to you mate, but in all fairness it's not for everyone, most would love to just head to a vendor, get what they need and leave.

 

Would be willing to help you best I can, and I'm sure many others are.

No need to have low prices, just have reasonable prices and it won't really matter. Most RPers I know are richer than many dedicated PvMers. And I'd love a RP shop. I've always used RAA, but I agree that the shop now and then is out of what you need, and looking for other shops that sell the same as RAA is a real pain..

Ok well i think we have the interest in it at least. I have my Duchy Supplies char i can just not mark the items so can supply from that

 

If we had anyone who likes mining that would be great haha

 

So if anyone who actually wants to help with a vendor or supply wants to ICQ me, im guna move the chests in the bottom of my shop to my keep so we can get that started if people want too :) will have dye tubs etc down there too i think

So far i only have help in the weps area :(

 

Got some good interest from uoforums people so hopfully get some help their

 

but to actually have agood shop we need at least a few people workin on it i think

 

One great thing would be to have resource suppliers. not just to sell but to supply for crafters (or themselves if they are crafters) help keep costs down

You know, it was always a sideline dream of mine to have an RP specific store somewhere, staffed with players and operating opening hours, with a few vendors in place for when there's no players there. Neutral ground, of course, and somewhere any crafter who RPs could use as a base of operations. Sort of an RP community co-operative. I dunno if there's the people any more, sadly, but if enough folks think there's still a market for it, I'll gladly pitch in with goods and hours. Possibility of a barter system alongside the silver, too, perhaps, so if you bring in 50 logs and want a table, you only pay a token fee in silver for the workmanship?

Hi Elise,

 

We're actually starting one up in Yew at the moment. We currently have three people pitching in with different vendors and the store made ICly (with vendors). The hope is once we get enough people helping to run it, that we'd also have opening hours IC so it won't just be vendor run. (And we can use silver.)

 

We're hoping to be able to serve all the different needs, from the obvious (weapons, regs, potions) to the things we're sadly lacking since Ulyss closed (furniture, deeds, special cloth, RP armour, full mage books without mods.)

 

Anyone is welcome to join in and we'd love to have you on board as well if you're interested!

 

You - and anyone else - can reach me on ICQ: 195 710 197

I still have my old RAA legendary crafter, so if you want to utilise his skills just let me know.

 

Incidentally RAA and RAAM are still going. Molly Foxglove, the driving force behind the RAA vendors, is still very much involved along with old hand Lien Ragus. So the RAA quality is still there, just no longer at Ulysses place. I have a rune for the new RAA shop if anyone wants one.

I wouldn't mind one! I miss the old shop, can never find what I want these days or it takes much longer.

 

But back to the original subject, I think it's a great idea/project, and wish you all the best with it.
