[Extra Company] Mercantile (Not Sponsored)

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Purpose: This company exists solely to network the greatest number of trade oriented characters possible. Designed to be a second or third company that never becomes sponsored.

Alignment: True Neutral
Enrollment: Open, no low rep

Notes: No obligations towards others, save that you stay respectful in the context of company dealings. There will not be any non-aggression or preferential treatment expectations. This is simply to stay connected with others in 'the business', a place from which deals can be initiated based on advertised products or services. It is not meant to circumvent contracts, and officially we encourage such to still be used as a matter of protecting yourselves.

Please respond below or pm me if you wish to join.

I've added this Company to the Guild Recruitment & Helpful Links list and placed it next to Audacity and Dagedai. If you have a brief description you'd like to appear there to let people know about your guild while they're browsing that list, just PM me or post a clear request here.

Sounds like a great idea, good luck!

I'd like to commit an alt to this.

@ Darcnes

Great idea. Trade is one of those things that spans just about all differences.

Count me in if I can manage an alt that is not LG.

Thank you for starting this Darc.

This is EXACTLY what I had in mind when I spoke with you some weeks ago.

The Keepers will be releasing more information about our upcoming Trade Incentives System, which will mesh with this work very well and I'd like to be one of the first to ...

/signed for 2nd/3rd CC.

Goblin Squad Member

I very well might have an alt here but it's too early to say really. I like the idea though.

Goblin Squad Member

Perfect, count me among your members. I envision this as a group that has the potential to trade in all settlements regardless of settlement alignment. This will be either the second or third company for my main.

I think this would fit the original definition of guild better than the settlement-sponsor companies do.

Goblin Squad Member

if i have a free company slot, I'm most certainly interested.

(no no-agression... we'll have to understand exactly how aggression/team mechanics, friendly fire etc work. But I like the idea).

These types of groups are definitely likely to offer the kinds of loose affiliation or groups of friends that many are used to. While primary is meant to advance their career.

Goblin Squad Member

I think this sounds perfect. Signed for my 3rd CC on my main.

Goblin Squad Member

Depending on how my characters go (and what other companies I am obligated to join) I may join. I'm certainly thinking that with 3 companies each on at least 2 characters I should be able to join, but we'll see.

Kemedo, what is this?

Goblin Squad Member

Shane, good to hear, we can certainly use as many trade oriented folk as we can get.

It's our Company's introduction to show we can be trade-partners. ;)

The Lion Council is a chartered company out of Aragon. They are kind of "Jacks of all Trades". They are the only merchants that are safe from UNC predation, other than the other Northern Coalition members.

Yebng is also a citizen of Aragon, and will likewise be protected by and from UNC banditry.

The rest of you are SOL unless under a contract. Nothing personal, it's just business.

With that said, it's poor form to post your recruiting boilerplate in someone else's thread.

It was not intended to be a recruit charter (it has no link to Join). But a transparent and complete form of introduce ourselves, with all the pertinente informations needed.

Actually in the first moment, by my quick (poorly) reads, seems look like an place to centralize all the market companies. After a better read and alrady posted, clearly my confusion but I see no harm was done IMHO.

If you take ofense by nothing, it was not my fault. ;)

But you are welcome to introduce yourselve in our post if this make you feel better.

Goblin Squad Member

Gotcha, a simple "I want to join" will suffice. This is not so much a place for others to advertise themselves, as a place for others to join if they are interested. It is specifically a company that can be joined in addition to whatever other company one might belong to.

Are you, or others in your company, interested in joining Mercantile to have access to the network being established?

Scarab Sages

It's kinda bad if we, as mercantile company, couldn't have good relations with each other, because a little misunderstood. I´m okay to put all this aside to start to talk about profits... :)

Grand Lodge

Soo... when can we start filing the paperwork

I meant "guild" in the actual, historical sense, though they may also fit in the 'gsme buddies' sense.

If set up as a third company, it won't collect influence and would therefore find the 50-member soft cap on influence-earning to be irrelevant. At that point, it's a loose communication network, possibly useful for coordinating 'wagon' trains. brokering deals before travel is undertaken, and warning of areas where trade routes may be interrupted. Of course, one would have to be circumspect about how openly plans are made or reports are trusted, because bandit groups will likely place moles.

I would regard this company more as a collection of contacts myself; as you say, the company chat would likely be watched carefully by bandit groups as well as enemies.

Goblin Squad Member

I would expect bandits to attempt to make use of it as well. Though, unless people act carelessly, I do not see this being an issue in and of itself.

Keovar is correct that the point of this is not influence gain, but rather networking and easy communication with the right people.
