PostSubject: Newcomer letter   Sun Feb 11, 2007 2:52 pm

Newcomer letter I have been sending. It could probably be better:
Quote :
Welcome to Exeter,
I just want to welcome you to Exeter, Capital of Cornwall, and offer a few helpful hints. The capital is new, and as such, does not yet have all the amenities. But with your help, we can make this town strong. Your main goal right now is to achieve level 1. The requirements are 5 reputation points (RP) and 90 pounds.

1. Reputation points. You need 5 points, 3 from trust given by fellow citizens and 2 from working in the church. Just ask for trust, many are willing to give. You can give away 2 per week, Sunday to Saturday. Donít give trust to me, I have enough of it. Trade it with your fellow citizens. You can ask in the taverns or at Exeterís forum, once it is created (soon, I am told).

2. Food. You start with 2 bread in your inventory. Home > your inv. Eat these the first 2 days and buy from town market or have a meal in the taverns, whichever is less expensive. Save your money, do not buy anything else, it is too expensive. Wait until level 1 is achieved. You need to eat everyday.

3. Work. Work everyday. Eventually, the town hall(TH) will have job offers and militia. For now, the best option is the stone mine. Duchy>Work>Click on the picture of the stone mine (not the gold mine). Note this job pays you 8.5 pounds now, and the other 8.5 on Sunday. There is also the orchard, but that will probably not be as profitable as the stone mine until you have some stats (and you wonít be getting those until level one). If the stone mine is full, there is the gold mine (but is only 7.5 and 7.5). There will now also be four militia jobs daily. (only 14 pounds, but all paid each day). There will also soon be jobs in the Job Announcements in the Town Hall.

4. Register in the forums. Exeter does not yet have its own forum, but will soon. For now, post in Cornwall Inn. Cornwall is the county where you live.

5. Taverns are the chatrooms where you meet your fellow citizens. They are all willing to help . Ask them any questions and ask them for trust.

6. Level 1. After you have the 5 RP and the 90lbs. got to duchy > castle > county first secretary. ask to go to level 1 pick a field and after reset you will have a field and be level 1. As Exeter is still very new, there are no fields, so we will need them all. My suggestion to start with is corn or wheat.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Your humble servant,
Methos

I'm going to make a few changes to the welcome letter to add the following,

1. Basic laws- Slavery, Fraud and witchery

2. Warnings- Don't work in orchard, don't buy half-hundredweights of ***'s thinking they can eat it

3. Help- Link to my quickest way to level up in Exeter

So you have arrived at Level 1.
Congratulations! Just a few hints to help you out as you start on this new
journey.

1. When your sowing your field for the first time or
slaughtering your first animal always remember to keep either a bag of wheat or
corn...depending on your field or a knife in your property inventory, not your
personal inventory. Vegetable fields don't require anything they automatically
sow them selves. To find your field go to Home and select home again from the
resulting list. Then it is in the top
right corner.

2. As tempting as it might be to work your farm yourself
it is always better to hire the work out. This creates jobs for everyone and
when you get your stats up it allows you to make more money working for someone
else. The second reason to hire out your fields is that it helps you to
accumulate those ever so important reputation points.

3. Your stat points. The better your stats, the better the jobs
you can get. You need 20 in every stat
to go to level two. Meat and fish feed
you for the day (just like bread), but meat gives you +2 strength, and fish
gives you +2 intelligence. Milk,
vegetables, and fruit are half of what you need to eat for the day (like corn),
but milk gives you +1 intelligence, and fruits/veggies give you +1 charisma.

4. The
orchard. You need to build up your
strength and intelligence a little to make good use of the orchard. The guide is here: http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=29652 It is a lucrative business once you have some
stats.


5 Always remember to stay current at
least with your town hall forum and be as active as possible on them.

6. Visit the taverns when youíre on; as you can be working
in game and still spend time at the taverns. Interacting with other players
makes the game more enjoyable and they may have helpful advice for you and you
maybe able to help someone else out.

6. When hiring for a job be aware of the minimum wage
which is 14 pounds as the game will allow you to hire at 12 pounds if you don't
adjust the wage when hiring. The minimum wage law is enforced.

7. If you need further assistance please contact one of
the following: Methos, Syounger, or
Pangea.

Darrell,
Would you be interested in being the official Minister of Newcomers in the Town Administration, if I am elected as next Mayor?

So, Darrell Meaney, you are now appointed the official Minister of Newcomers for the Town of Exeter!
Thank you for your help.

My idea, was for you to see if you've a letter ready, and to see about sending it to all lvl 0's, and then to track the names of the new arrivals and keep them updated?
Do you think you can handle that, and/or which parts?
- drafting the letter based on the above
- sending to all current lvl 0's (or half?)
- following up on the new lvl 0's arriving every day to write to them

yeah I can do it, it'l take a bit of time though to get it to all those level 0's
but I can do it.

I'm going to have to make a few modifications to Methos' letter first to update it a little.

but the letter'l be ready in about 10 min... then I'l make a list of everyone I'v sent it to.

Welcome to Exeter,

I just want to welcome you to Exeter, Capital of Cornwall, and offer a few helpful hints. The capital is new, and as such, does not yet have all the amenities. But with your help, we can make this town strong. Your main goal right now is to achieve level 1. The requirements are 5 reputation points (RP) and 90 pounds.

1. Reputation points - You need 5 points, 3 from trust given by fellow citizens and 2 from working in the church. Just ask for trust, many are willing to give. You can give away 2 per week, Sunday to Saturday. Donít give trust to me, I have enough of it. Trade it with your fellow citizens. You can ask in the taverns or at Exeterís forum and ask in the St Thomas of Exeter Trust Fund for trust points here is the link:

http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=29865


2. Food - You start with 2 bread in your inventory. Home > your inv.Eat these the first 2 days or buy from town market or have a meal in the taverns, whichever is less expensive. Save your money, do not buy anything else, it is too expensive. Wait until level 1 is achieved. You need to eat everyday, either 1 bread or 2 corns will keep you fit each day.

3. Work - Work everyday. Work everyday. The town hall(TH) now has many job oppertunities, higher level citizans are offering jobs for harvesting or slaughtering pigs(Which varies on wage), Miss Pangea (Our Mayor) has started the town militia which offers 15 pounds for a days work and the County has created similar jobs under Marshals which is similar to the Militia. And also there is the stone mine. Duchy>Work>Click on the picture of the stone mine (not the gold mine). Note this job pays you 8.88 pounds now, and the other 8.88 on Sunday. There is also the orchard, but forget that as it's not profitable at all if your a level 0 so forget it as you'l need 20 Str. and Large ladder to get 2 fruit). If the stone mine is full, there is the gold mine (but is only 7.5 and 7.5).

4. Register in the forums - Exeter does have a forum in the Cornwall inn, please check there often as you will get important information about upcoming events.
here is a quick link to the exeter grand hall

http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewforum.php?f=268

5. Taverns are the chatrooms where you meet your fellow citizens. They are all willing to help. Ask them any questions and ask them for trust.

6. Level 1. After you have the 5 RP and the 90 pounds, go to the duchy > castle > county first secretary. ask to go to level 1 pick a field and after reset you will have a field and be level 1. My suggestion on picking a field is to pick a Pig Farm as Exeter is very high in demand in meat as we hope to be the meat capital in Cornwall, for pig farms you will get 1 free pig and a small ration of corn which you put into your property inventory and feed your pig with (It grows faster then, which means more meat to sell),
here is a link to see how to breed pigs

http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=677

7.The Mayor - Our mayor at the moment is Pangea, She helps this City grow so I would advise you to listen to her when there is a crisis as she has Helped Exeter grow without major problems.

8.The Law - Here is a link to view all of the Cornish laws

http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=30073

9.Help - I have made a guide avalable in the forums that is a basic walkthrough on how to be a level 1 in the quickest time possible, here is the link please copy and paste into your address bar.

http://forum.renaissancekingdoms.com/viewtopic.php?t=31567

If you have any questions, please PM me.

Your most humble servant and friend
Darrellmeaney

PostSubject: Re: Newcomer letter   Wed Mar 07, 2007 2:31 am

Thanks, Darrell!
So, my 2 cents worth of remarks on your cool job are:

[1. Reputation points]
Put the url to the Trust Fund (on forum)?

[2. Food ]
your "Eat these the first 2 days and buy from town market"
could be "Eat these the first 2 days or buy from town market" (not in Bold though, just there to show the possible change)

[3. Work]

* About: "Work everyday. Eventually, the town hall(TH) will have job offers and militia. "
I would think it might be modified a bit, along the lines of: "Work everyday. The town hall(TH) will have militia jobs and eventually more job offers"

* The stone mine is 15.75 now, so the figures would be: "this job pays you 8.88 pounds now, and the other 8.88 on Sunday."

* About "There is also the orchard, but that will probably not be as profitable as the stone mine until you have some stats (and you wonít be getting those until level one)."
I think we should be a bit more 'harsh', telling them to forget the Orchard until lvl 1 (to get 2 fruit you need 20 Str. and Large ladder, and handling the carryover % and selling / buying is complex, so, most will not figure it out, and those who will can manage on their own I'm sure).

* About: "There will also soon be jobs in the Job Announcements in the Town Hall." Maybe put 'more' in: "soon be more jobs" (since we do have a few a day, so the people should look)

[4.]
(typo on 'valuable')
Put the link to the Exeter Grand Hall in ?

[6.]
Re. 'My suggestion to start with is corn or wheat.'
We should decide on that, regarding the corn or pig farm thread (Zangi's idea to promote Exeter as Pig/Meat town).

[7.]
Ooh! xD

[8.]
Typos on 'currently' and 'aren't'.

[9.]
Typo on 'basically'.

[Your most humble servant and friend
[Darrellmeaney]
That is sure true!
THANKS a lot )))
Very complete and easy to follow

Hmm... at the least, not promote wheat? Corn is fine.

And tell them that it isn't a good idea to get vegetable. Since it won't pay very well in this town.

And a guide for Pig Farms and Corn Farms probably needs to be posted. I'll go and find it for you later. Or you can yourself.

I'll make your job easier Darrel. I'll purchase one of the 'Mass Message' Things from the town hall for you to use for new people in Exeter. Redeemable whenever. I just have to pay the Town for it.

Pangea, how much is it? 20-30 pounds? Final decision is yours.

And could you set up the transaction? I'll buy it up when I get to it.

Darrell,
How many have you contacted so far?
A lot more to do?

I have been sending letters to all lvls 1 through 3.

(also, a group letter would mean sending newcomer info to higher lvls... and/or higher lvl requests etc. to all lvl 0's)

It takes a few days to come back from dying. A bread/meal a day will have him/her back from that in about 4 or 5 days.

but the flow has stopped now in total I got 16 letters from level 0's asking anything from dying to marrying!?

marrying!!!???, Has something occored in the game I might have missed... I couldn't reply to this letter in a positive way and told him/her to consult the church because I didn't even know if that was even a possibility...

So, married Darrell... how goes the life?!

Next week we will be sending out a Mass Letter to all of Exeter.

I wanted you to make sure you did not have changes to make to your letter, or anything new you wanted to put in it, so I can add it to the posting.
