For Release 10, we're going to attempt to do more than we have in past releases.
In addition to using open lots to build customized content (stage, party area, picnic area, etc), we're going to build houses to suit professions! (note: We still need a Knight Marshall keep in proximity to the hot tubs for high-diving goodness!)
For R10, we need folks to think as a community rather than a group of individuals. As an example, I will be choosing a house and decorating it to look like a tailor shop.
Other examples of professions vs. houses needed:
Alchemist (I did this with Sebben's wizard tower in R9 and would probably do it again, Sebben willing.)
I will be partnering with Doc Ragnarok on various builds/placements, but we need YOUR input, fair citizens, on which buildings you'll want to be responsible for, or which open lots you'll be in charge of procuring.
For the ease of viewing, here's a map of Holtrot. The west entrance is where the players enter the scene
For this to work well, we need ALL lots from 1-17 to be commandeered by Port Phoenix personnel as early as possible in R10. To some extent, we may have to ask non-Port Phoenix players who come in early to relocate to one of the higher plateaus in the scene, for he sake of the group. I know that the Lord Marshall House that was placed on 9 was NEVER used - the player simply plopped it down and never came back. This is why it's essential that we work together to get as many of the lots in question as we can.
