Hi Folks!

The question came up today about what happens to structures that aren't fully paid for... ie... built but loans aren't completed. If the player stops playing and doesn't complete their loans, then the structure reverts back to the Settlement. This is true even if the loan was for something as simple as furnishings.

I did the same for deeded land to settle Syka... giving it back to the Settlement if players quit.

I will give all buildings one season to be in limbo (since people can be one season behind in their ledgers) and one season to be placed back on the market. If two full seasons have passed without loan payment, then the structure is for sale at its full value. All furnishings will come with the structure. The structure can then be renamed, described, etc... but the property and buildings will not be separated.

Don't quit the site people. Pay off your loans!

I added this section to the OOC page of the Codex to clear up any confusion on the views of magic in Syka.

✨Magic In Syka✨


The Settlement of Syka is probably one of the more open-minded places in Mizahar that accepts magic as an everyday thing. Mages are common among the NPCs of Syka and enough of the Sykan Rangers have magic of their own to control renegade mages or those that have issues with sanity due to overgiving.

Magic is not hidden. It can be practiced openly, and as a result, is commonly taught amongst the denizens. The only exception to this is Reinmancy. You must talk another player into teaching you Reimancy or get special permission from the storyteller of Syka to acquire it via an NPC.

Hi folks!

We are coming down to the wire for both the Season and NaNo. You need to have any OLD (from Summer 522) job threads done. And you need to make sure you have jobs or placeholders this season (Fall 522) completed.

We'll be awarding prizes for NaNo as well. Make sure you hit your 50 K if you can!

Let me know if anyone needs paid wages from either Summer of Fall. I'd be glad to get those done. I will also try to clean out the grading queue after Dec first and resume moderation then. I will not be grading threads for graders. You all can grade your own things!

Hi Folks.

I worked a really really really long day today - for me at least - and I have to sleep fast before I go in again tomorrow. It's crazy. The night shift quit. They just flat out gave a 24 hr notice and left. One of my best coworkers is down for the count very ill. Another coworker called in because his 18-year-old daughter is having emergency heart surgery. Basically, we're running 24/7 down two people with no one to step up, so I'm pulling long hours. The people left can't actually effectively do the job... but we're trying.

Thankfully we have a trainee starting, but the guy needs the full attention of a trainer (me) that actually can't give that right now, so think good thoughts that he works out despite being thrown to the wolves.

I have to work through the weekend too. So the calendar might have to be put on hold until Sat/Sun. I will try to catch up on pay then as well. If anyone submitted pay requests in any domains OTHER than Syka, you might as well HD that bad boy because I'm not remotely babysitting other domains atm.

Thanks!

Goss

In regards to the Calendar...

If you run across a Collector and have to tangle with them, it's perfectly fine to decide what they collect. :) If you need help deciding, I can randomly roll for you if you'd like. The bone hounds roam in packs and are rarely found one on one. Pack size is something you can determine all on your own depending on your scene. Or you can randomly roll for it in the dicerollers on Discord.

Hi Guys.

Since we're having a slow season, I think its a great time to do what I've wanted to do with the Protea for a long time and close it down for a season to raise the roof and put a trio of nicer posh upscale suites upstairs with multiple bedrooms and decks. I don't see how I could keep the Inn open to put another story on it. So that's going to be the theme of this season for me.

Also... we'll throw a huge 'reopening' next season. I'll be around doing my Ranger things if anyone needs escorted or training.
