Property Rules

Property Types

Property is available to Tier 2 and 3 players only.   Property types are limited based on the provincial location; urban, suburban, rural. A player will be able to build a new property on the land based in a region.   The Rift can NOT be accessed or built upon, it can only be built around.   Provincial location also dictates:
  • Expansion mechanics
    • TBD
  • Availability of sovereign law enforcement - doesn't apply to lawless areas
    • Urban areas have frequent routine patrols, and response times to criminal activity is as fast as possible.
    • Suburban areas have guard squads that patrol on a regular basis, and response time to criminal activity varies.
    • Guard patrols in rural areas are practically non-existent. If the property is located near the World Road, the World Wanderers may respond to criminal activity.
  • Revenue rates from for-profit properties
    • Similar to guard patrols, urban areas have the highest potential customer traffic, followed by suburban with more variance, then rural with hardly any potential at all.
    • Players can track their weekly revenue gained/lost on the retail Revenue Sheet as well as their revenue history and related costs associated with the type and potential of their property. Revenue is calculated monthly, after the first update stream of the month.
  • Upkeep of each property is done after the first update stream of the month.
  When a player buys or builds property, it is assumed that the property comes with enough land necessary for the respective type. Players cannot purchase additional land at this time, though buying land for farms or natural resource properties (ore, timber, etc) might be an option in the future. Using land for the purposes of building an entire incorporated community is even farther off.

Signing up for property

Use this form to sign up for property. Make sure to read all the rules regarding property before filling the form.  

Residential

Below is the list of standard housing properties available to players. The details are as follows, but keep in mind that the Standard Rooms is not a hard limit; a player may still be able to reasonably flavor their property that is comparable in overall space to the Standard Rooms, such as making a bedroom smaller to add a new study room to the property.   Note: Future expansions can increase the size of rooms and are subject to similar rules as above.

Payment Structure

Once the player submits the form for a property, the Verumese team will review it and inform the player of its approval. All costs are upfront, with some exceptions (luxury and higher cost things), which the player will be informed of. To pay the upfront cost and begin building, the player tags themself as the property owner, and update the day/gold progressions in #trading-log-and-consumables. The property must also be given a name to help distinguish it between other similar properties.
@economy @[yourself]
Spending [upfront cost] to begin construction on [property name], requiring [day amount]
Alternatively for Luxury buildings you can choose to pay in full or put a down payment that leaves the remaining sum of 100gp per day to construct. For example: Mansion 15,000gp with a downpayment of 8,000gp and paying the remaining days 100gp for each of the 70 days to build. 8,000 + (100 * 70) = 15,000gp  

Spending Days

You can contribute your crafting days or downtime days to work on your property or someone else's. Paying the incremental gold when doing so if necessary.   When a player wants to progress a property: Players tag themself as the property owner, and update the day/gold (when applicable) progressions in #trading-log-and-consumables.   If a player other than the property owner submits days towards a property, they must ping themselves, the property owner, and economy.
@economy @[property owner] @[yourself]
Spending # crafting/downtime days on [property name], to a total of # / #
  As property has weekly limits on the amount of days you can spend, you are able to spend days on property while in RP lock  

Private Property

Property you build can be private. This means that you can specify that only people you invite can access your property and staff will give them the required permission to access your property.  

Pets

Your active pet can be stationed there mechanically if it is not brought with you. You cannot store any other pets on a property.  

Item Storage

Similarly to factions, properties have item storage capabilities. This includes limited magic items storing. The amount of magic items one can hold is listed under the type of property seen above. If you wish to store any items at a property you MUST banking log on the Property server to do so. Clearly stating which property it is at. Additionally, you must clearly have it somewhere on your character sheet notated that it is at a specific property.   You may only store items at a property you own. If you give an item for someone to store at their property. They must still be the ones to withdraw it as they are the owner as far as banking is concerned.  
@Banking @[Self] Storing/withdrawing [Item]/[Items] from [Property Name]
 

Shop NPCs

You can have a staff member play an NPC for you or have a Tier 0 player submit an NPC to run it for you. In either case the NPC is strictly for RP purposes and is a non-combatant with no stats. Tier 0 NPCs are subject to all the normal Tier 0 NPC rules.   As shop NPCs cannot have actual inventories, any gold or items they were specifically gifted to the NPC disappears at the next update stream.   NPCs are not to be used as buffers in trading other items between players.  

Shops

Shopping at a players store, such as a general store, fulfills the RP requirement to purchase items without the use of a downtime day.   The shop owner can sell all the normal items found on the player shopping list excluding reagents. Items must be purchased by the shopkeeper from the Shopping Item List at the minimum price. They can be on-sold to the customer for any price but the owner must pay the minimum item price (e.g. lower than Shopping List Item price, shop owner loses gold, above minimum price, shop owner gains gold).   If they want to charge past that baseline it is up to the owner to inform the NPC to do so.   Similarly to Quartermaster, owners can purchase things without the use of a downtime day for anything their shop normally sells. However, they still must pay the full shopping list price.   Non-mechanical items, such as beverages, can be sold with no cost associated to the owner as long as they remain without a mechanical benefit (such as attempting to consider a sandwich as a ration or food token). When trading with a shop NPC please tradelog with the following format so the shop owning player can add the gold to their sheet.  
@Economy @[Self] trading @[NPC] as NPC [items being traded] for [amount of gold] Shop owned by @[Property Owner]
  The NPC then confirms the trade and the player can add what they are being sold and the Shop owner can add the net gold to their sheet.  
@[Customer] Confirmed as NPC, @[Property Owner] receives x gp y sp.
