Then such an idea should be a part of an established city thread like Nyermersys or Voldar. That would make the city stories really come alive and provide several people to play. The main story mods wouldn't have to worry about puppeting minor tavern owners and shopkeepers.

However, should someone want into the main storyline, it could become a problem for the mods trying to integrate them.

@Rookie:

Well yes but then it will be the players business. It will be thir own decision on how much they would like to sell their wares. The prices will affect the buyer's choice and will affect the business.

I got an idea on how to make the players decide on their prices but all of it will be based if every player have "fixed" money which means that all their money are counted and everything they spend would be calculated. Or if there was a quota fee for the rent of the day. They have to get x amount of money to be able to pay the rent for the stalls.

If the market place was to be added to a city then it would most likely be Voldar since I am quite familiar with the story and things that are happening in the city (well my other side is  grin don't know however if the mods will be interested)

I do not wish to be a naysayer about this idea because it is a nice, original one, but I fear this marketplace may have the same fate as the Home Threads which are an ultimate flop. I think a great risk is set up when making little mods out of each and every player in a story; not that I have no faith in our roleplaying community, I just think humanity in general is better suited to have a few people in charge than give everybody a little power. The home threads failed largely because of a lack of interest and activity from both the individual mods of the homes and the people that visited; what would make the marketplace different?

I am in somewhat of a disagreement with much that has been said about the "Home Thread" forums. The idea seemed quite sound in the general gist of things but poor planning is more the cause of the failure than anything else. The entire concept was left to a single moderator to handle and with an untimely departure of the solo mod, destroyed the thread more-so than anything else IMHO. I do not fault Kareesh for this, as we have all had RL issues that have drawn us away at various times. But I think the poor planning of having a solitary individual in charge broke the idea more than anything else. I know a couple players that were putting in extensive work to get their 'homes' up and running. Yet with no one to answer simple questions for them, their ideas ground to a halt.

In no way am I saying that the idea would have been a huge success, but I also do not think the idea was properly handled for all avenues to be explored. Hence using it as an example on why similar ideas would fail does not sound like an informed decision. Just my two sans.

I heartily second the idea of a whore hosue, and volunteer myself as one of the titular "whores". I predict that I will starve within the week.

Well, for the whole Whore House idea...

Uhm. I was thinking of making it also a hiding place for... say... outlaws currently running from authority or something. It's already a Whore House and I think that if you add the outlaws-bit to the mix it'll spice things up a little bit- not that a whore-house needs spicing up. But, to be honest, simply whoring gets boring after a while.

The only real thing stopping me from starting up the Whore House at the moment is that I still have to write the characters required to start it up. They are, however, in the works at this point in time and I will hopefully finish them soon since I basically have the history already written- what, with them being Daelynn's siblings and all that.

Oh, that and the whole modding thing. It, frankly, scares the bajesus out of me. I don't know how to mod. I don't know how to direct a storyline or anything. I suppose it's something that I'm willing to learn how to do, but to just fly by the seat of my pants doesn't seem like a very appealing idea to me. Perhaps if I had someone willing to help me out with that? Of course, I wouldn't want to be the main mod of the story. I'd be willing to hand over the main lady, Sylvianna, to someone I trust to handle it for the modding. And then I'd be happy to co-mod while I learn how to do this whole modding thing. Though, there are three main ladies, so I wouldn't mind having another co-mod to play the third one.

Another thing that puts me off to the idea is that if it is just me and one other person modding the Whore House, I'll be playing two characters. Interacting with myself, in all honestly, is something that I find strange. Sure, I talk to myself sometimes, but I'd really rather not RP with myself.

Er, did any of that make sense?

Jesus, I'm rambling. I'm stopping now!   *bites her lip and flees*

I love this idea, whether it be its own story or a thread within a story. I've wanted to create character, most likely an elf, who makes and sells her own perfume. So whether or not this idea becomes its own story, I'd love to be a part of it!!
