Alternate Route into Town from Ocean

Post by Lorikeet » Wed Jun 25, 2008 7:47 pm

So...we were on Metz when the Darshak invasion occurred. We headed to Puddleby, killed all the warships in the ocean on the way, and then...it was too full to get through the west entrance. The choice was land and depart, or not land. I think there should be another way to land on Puddleby--maybe another boat landing a little north, where you would have a chance to make it to the library or join in the battle.

I guess the castle which is building south might be a good place to get some additional landing place. And eventually get some underground way from the castle to reach tc underground…

I was thinking that too. But it could be hard to differentiate between whether you're landing on the Puddleby docks or on the castle docks, as they're on the same part of the island basically.
Extreme level disparity is community disparity.

Yeah, I was wondering how you guys would get back.... A landing as part of the castle would rock.

Maybe then getting an intermediate snell with 2 eastern exits, one for the west town dock, one for the castle dock ?

something like that: (<>: both way, >: 1 way to avoid not paying the boat fare ;-) )
...........<> ___________________ <> West town
Ocean <> Intermediate snell |
...........<> ___________________ > Castle

A dock on South beach would be a good idea.

Or a dock on the north beach. At least it would be far away.

I agree with this. The Castle entrance would be more on the SSW side of Puddleby Island, and can lead to that outcropping of rock which currently takes a bunch of PF to get to (though could be cleared out, I suppose!). Connecting the Castle to the Underground is also a great idea - the underground is really the way exiles get around in times of invasions. It also gives us another option - to go from TC to the Castle, and then strike out from there, possibly hitting the flank of any Darshak or other invasion.

Plus, the Castle is being built up right now anyway, gives another good thing to be built there!

Pengy did mention last night in the Fairgrounds that he had a fix in mind. I don't know if it will be a temporary or a permanent fix, but it will be nice to have an alternative whatever it is.

Permanent alternative 99% likely to go in very soon.

I would be cool if IC we could land at both N and S beaches, depending on tides.

I was thinking more along the lines of north coast (fringe), south coast (dunes), or east coast (past the passes).

But a closer dock works too.

I wonder what Pengy has in mind...

The reason why people want to go to town when they are finished hunting is to go to the library (or equivalent), right?

If that's the case, it would be sufficient to have another library (or equivalent) on another island. We should have a backup settlement elsewhere anyways, in as much as we're being driven off of Puddleby ....

And remember, there are many safe places to stop clanning outside of town. You just don't get lib-exp in most of them.

You missed the point. Some people may want to go to the library, but other people want to participate. Of course there are safe places to stop clanning. And yes, they have no experience. Why should people be penalized for their timing on a hunt? If there's a two- or three-hour monumental battle taking place why can't there be another way for people to join?
