The start of the game.

What does the start of the game look like from an org and shop perspective?

My experience comes from Achaea, and my questions are around shops and org leadership.
  • Will the different orgs have a hierarchy of players like Achaea and will rules and such be decided on by a council/dictator/monarchy?
  • How are these leaders selected initially?
  • Is there a neutral city similar to Delos (No related player run orgs, just a bunch of shops and some npc stuff)?
  • How do you get a shop on Day 1?
  • Who manages shop ownership initially?
I loved owning a shop.

Thanks!

    1) Yes.
    2) Organically
    3) Not exactly like that.
    4) Shops work quite differently in Starmourn.

    The name of this post got me too, lol.
    Tecton won’t leave us Discord peeps hanging! Aside: I wonder how many different ways I’ll get that Grand Notification..at least three, I’d wager.
    As T'rath has pierced the veil, so will I, and so will my life become complete in a good death.

    By any chance could you guys extend the retire period? I don't wanna retire my Lusternian account before knowing the quality of the game.

    I believe they have mentioned somewhere that retirement credits won't work for Starmourn characters. I'm not sure, though.

    They're on the fence about retirement credits right now

    What about a limit of retirement credits that can be spent? Like, being able to spend... 50? 100? credits initially, and then be able to spend the rest after 1 year. Just throwing that out there. I have no retirement credits, but I can understand how people who do would feel.

    That's not a bad idea as a compromise actually. We'll consider it!

    Think that was the last word on the subject?

    Last I recall was retirement credits will be allowed, just not on day 1, and when they are allowed then they would allow it for all characters (for a limited time) so you don't need to be concerned about investing credits from the start.

    Maybe it was an "if they allow retirement". My mind falters.

    I'm in the same boat @Aspie.  I am currently not paying for an IRE membership for Achaea or buying any additional credits because I don't know if I'll be able to retire them over or not.

    I'm fine with that, of course, would just be nice to know for certain.

    Same here.  I'll be waiting to pay for a membership until Starmourn comes out.

    To be clear, is the suggestion that I could start a toon up with some (50?) retirement credits, and then a year later port the rest of my retirement credits onto that toon (even though s/he'd be too old to normally be eligible)? Or something else?
  • IndiIndi Posts: 27Member
    That's the suggestion. There's been no word on a decision.

    I recently spent my retirement creds on a new char in a different IRE mud.
    I now deposit around $20/week (whatever is left over from the coffee/lunch/snacks part of my weekly budget) into paypal, where it's easy for me to forget I have it.

    The longer they delay release, the more I'll be able to spend, I guess.
