Black Market Guild

Post  Myrrath on Tue Feb 03, 2015 4:35 pm

Basically, I'm working on ironing out the details right now, but what I have right now is still effective. Instead of just having Nick's Market, have an actual PC run Market that other PCs can request items on a board somewhere, and the said item can be gotten at any means necessary to fulfill the PC's request. Say a building is set up where a PC can enter the building talk to another PC employee of said Black Market and request Specific or Generic items, and if no PC Employees are online, then the customer can fill out a form of some sort and stick it through a slot on the outside of the building.

Friends,
This sounds like it could be done without additional scripting. Use a regular LOG BOOK to log your "requests" and to negotiate pricing. Since a PC wants to run the show, simply have one do so.

Forming a GUILD is already possible if such is needed.

Possible down side to this:
1) a PC is wanting to operate it so that PC must be online fairly frequently for it to operate, and 2) How will others know where the log book is and what it is for (you will need to do some spreading of the word - just be sure none of the city guards get word about what is going on or they may act to apprehend the rogues involved).

What about, a container in certain areas, where you can leave a note on what you want to trade? Saves trying ta hide/pass along a log book?

I had a huge typed up document on the guild details, but apparently it decided that it is now gone.

You could use the message boards or eventually maybe an innkeeper which is currently under discussion

I'd envision this being in the more shadier areas, WITHIN citys, as for leaving with innkeepers- only the more, Shady inns, ya know?

oops ...

I had received this message about the time the OP posted this thread

The OP wrote:Is it possible to have a sort of Black Market? I have a vision in mind. On the server in South Chonda, there should be a logbook under a floating painting next to a mini rest stop I may have accidentally made. This 'rest stop' could be a black market where a couple of players could either buy/sell stolen goods by bargaining quietly in whisper to eachother, or to just get an item retrieved from somewhere. Could be a thieve's guild that consumers ask and thieves execute. In that logbook, a player who wants ... can subtly write in the logbook saying that they would like to contact someone in the market to make a sale/ask for an item. They can list how much they want for the item or how much they'll pay and someone can either reply with a request to buy said item or sell said item. It would mostly be used for adventurers who don't want to get their hands dirty. Also when selling an item they can get it appraised at a pawnshop to see how much your item is truely worth then go to the black market to request significantly more for it. It would be possible right? I'd rather have a better setup than the carpet in the middle of the road heh.

Pardon my mental fog but I had blurred them together a bit.

let me re-parse the OP...

Have you considered joining forces with the local guild? or are you wanting to run your enterprise separately from the guild? If you want something to operate out of a building, you'll need to select one of the rent-ready locations and lease it, then furnish it as needed for your 'operation'. You'll also need some method to make it known to potential clients what sort of service you offer, while keeping that same information out of the hands of the city watch (since larceny is involved). Any thoughts on these matters?

Mouth to Ear propaganda, advertisement via thieves cant and any kind of language mainly known to shady people. I know little other ways to advertise such a thing aside from keeping it in certain circles.
