Are trade shops just limited to weapons and hardware? No little cosy bookshops or sewing shops or dress shops or restaurants? You mean no-body eats in Santharia???? *L*

To Dalá: I guess Nate needs various kinds of jobs, especially of course provisioners, weapons and armour shop, cause that's what role players mainly need...

And fact is that in RPGs you don't have to eat that often, I don't recall a single game that I've played having that built in(haven't layed that many RPGs/MUDs), except to restore a characters health. Ergo: your characters don't eat...

In some muds you have to eat.....if you don't on a regular basis, eventually you can't move because you're too exhausted.

How boringly and overwhelmingly macho RPGs must be if no-one who plays stop once in a while to lay down the bloodied mace/axe/warhammer/sword and smell the roses, perhaps partake in a caramel frappachino with whipped cream at Ye Olde Shoppe of Coffee, Tea, and Delicacies, before going off on impossible quests and killing a lot of humans/things/bad people or non-people again!! Seems strange to me if a town has nothing but shops full of weapons, weapons and more weapons! What kind of world is this?! :eek  (okay, okay, sorry, getting a little carried away here...but still! Who says heros and heroines can't be made out of baker boys and scullery maids and bookshop assistants or librarians??!!)

PS. Nice banner up there! I like! :)

Yeah, agree with Dalá! I personally would prefer an RPG with intelligent persons, where people are willingly playing minor roles and not everyone has to go out adventuring etc. and where the whole fun lies in the discussions between the characters (well, I'm a bit of an RPG intellectual). Unfortunately there are more people around who prefer the justice of the sword and to kill other players etc. than role playing philosophers - at least I fear so...

Do not forget love stories. I once accidently got myself into a love affair while freestyle RPing, it was one of the most interesting and difficult RP stories I've ever played.

And to describe a fighting situation properly is quite hard as well, you'd be surprised to see the hardness of RPing when you can't write actions for other characters, which is hard when fighting.

And philosophy... well talking can be much more interesting then adventuring and roaming countrysides, especially when argueing/discussing certain topics...

I plan for players to eat in Sorren 3d.  I didn't want the names exclusively for the 3d game though.  I have added a region vault to the simulation/strategy game.  Also I created an auction system to auction items.  No auction is complete without an Item shop to purchase the items from in the first place.

And by the way I'm working on coding the new stuff to work with both games.  Putting priority on the shared components required for the 3d game.

Don't know place names, so there! You can figure that out. Basically, if you need a shop in a town that doesn't have one already, take one of these.

The Silffin
Bar located on some sea-coast. Mainly used by sailors.

The Half-Starved Wolf
Famous restaurant and bar with gigantic portions AND good food, a combination rarely seen. In a town near some lumber camp.

Dragonforge Smithy
~Custom-made Relics~

One of the blacksmith shops where Tris Dragonforge made her famous weapons. Now owned by some really strong old guy whose name nobody knows. Still brings in a lot of business.

Harjin's Newfangled Machinery Center
The name sort of explains itself, eh?

Galehoof Stables
Stables in Santhala that have the reputation of the fastest, strongest, and those horses with the most stamina of all Aer'ai'chan.

Forbin's Ponies
Stables owned by the halfling Forbin. They are good for very long journeys and can carry a lot.

Stormcrow
