Job Market


Recommended Posts

As I have announce before there will be soon a new item’s auction.
Thanks to stormrunner there is only one item left to go.

For this event I would like to encourage a job market too. We all know this is a complicated subject; we don’t want people to charge for helping others. So I think I have come with an alternative solution to this. I hope you like it.

First of all, the job market shouldn’t be an expensive market (meanin: exclusive) The main purpose of this event will be to make character rolls interact in a completely new context.

For example, we have… Peter Bowman… he is a great warrior but also he can teach others about archery. For this effect this player will have to learn all about it, (history, mythology) he has to know many things related to that activity but also accordingly to his character epoch. If he offers a lesson too, he also will have to be able to roll play it.

On the marketplace Peter Bowman will have on his papers an abstract of the activity/teaching his is offering.

From my point of view, job market is a complex field so it needs people really committed to make it work.

If any of you is interested in participate, please prepare an interesting promoting presentation of your self and pm to me. Just to be clear: I wont charge for this.

Regards,

K

Thank you guys, if you have more ideas for the job market please post them as well.

A few more things.

* If the date set for the marketplace is not suitable to a player to attend, he/she may go idle on location so people can read his/her papers and pm offers.

* The character migh be hired by many people, not just one.

* Since I am promoting the use of silver coins, I would ask MDS to be the currency selected for this pourpuse.

* Everyone will be encouraged to participate. I am sure each player performance will be evaluated for their employer so be prepare to do your best.

Jump for joy or what?

I personally I am not interested in items (except the case when I trade them for something else that I collect and that rarely happens). So for me this is just another event I will probably not attend.

Not sure if this is still up, but I'll add myself to the job market.

Let's see...


Willem RedBeard -

[b]Guard[/b]

If you need something or someone protected and kept safe, for any length of time, I am your man. Perhaps not the strongest warrior in the realm, but very dedicated and absolutely reliable. Good with a sword and shield, as well as some magical abilities (see my "Comments on Self" page for further details).

Service cost depends on the level of danger and is negotiable, but is approximately 2 silver per day. (A bargain considering how much I am online)


[b]Rescue from Maze[/b]

Lost in the maze, or have a friend that is? I'll go and find them, then lead them out.

Service cost is 1 silver.

Personal Ad-
The youngest known person (set of persons...XD) to survive the experiments of the evil wizard Jester. Talk to him and learn about his past and story that many have ridiculed and shunned for being far to unbelievable and horrible. His story is the truth and his only fear is that it is forgotten when he passes away. He is willing to teach about his body swapping technique and how he uses it.

He only wants people to pass on his story and that of the others that have died and survived that dark time and those evil experiments. He does not charge people for hearing his story.

Seek him out in the lands of MD and simply ask him to tell you who he has to tell. Beware he is back! ... His story will freeze your soul...

Disclaimer- the evil jester in his story is not shady jester... XD

A guardian with the responsibility of watching the gates
Though alone most of the time, it is a responsibility that I just cant hate
Monologues most of the time, I see players just walk by
Newbies always only pm me, when all their creatures die

Let me know what you want to see
I’ll put it up and players will go “oh Gee…”
I am a warrior not for sale
But depending on job, its always negotiable

[quote name='Liberty4life' post='35148' date='Jun 27 2009, 11:57 AM']eh poetry co? that doesnt tells me who it is, or is there a player called Poetry :P[/quote]

The idea for me to publish small ads at the forum was to get people curious about the job market. [b]The contest will not be held at the forum.[/b]
The player's name is Blackwood Forest and he will have the complete ad on his papers so you can evaluate it. (BTW, I believe his native language isn't English he went idle inside Wind's Sanctuary, I think its ok)

Regards,
K
