There are a few rules.
1. Do not post if you have not submitted your birth certificate. If you are not on the player roster within 36 hours, leave me a shout. Even I filled out a birth certificate.
2. Follow the guidelines on the birth certificate. If you wish to copy and paste the certificate (which I suggest) and replace the guidelines with your answer, do so, but still follow the guidelines.
3. Do not get mad at people for spelling errors or mixing it up a bit. on the version of this on another site, i had a gunfight with a cop, killed my own polar bear who was accused of mauling someone, hand a super intelligent dog, and broke out of jail. So don’t be afraid to mix it up.
4. Don’t cheat or godmode. Now the stuff above seems crazy, but don’t do anything impossible. The dog really only pushed a button and dragged furniture, and we lived in the arctic, which explains the polar bear.
5. If someone says something is secret even though they posted it, keep it that way. Anything in slashes /like this/ is secret.
6. Do not start off too powerful. We come with no house, just food, supplies to build a house, a tent, money, fire wood, and other items we have of personal value.
7. Calculate your money. Whenever there is a transaction between you and another player, (as that is the only way transactions are to be made) do the math and state how much money you have after. (do not do the math on the forum post. just state the answer)
8. You can make time faster than it really is. Just dont do thinks in unrealistic times, like, I cut down trees, lay down my foundation, and build for 1 hour, making my entire mansion. That is unrealistic. Also, mansions aren’t allowed as they are too time consuming and stall the game. Also, you may only work for 5 hours a post. Try not to chain post, and if you are going away and wont be back for more than 36 hours, say so, and I’ll mark you as away on the roster. If someone is away, they may not be interacted with, and no transactions with their character may be made.
9. You can find many interesting things, but not things that are impossible. Like, you cant search the seeming empty field behind your house and find an instant mansion. Also, you may not find money or any starting items.

Pet: A wolf, who I have named Chris.
Personal objects: Crystal hourglass, camera with solar battery.
Age: 27
Bio: Jaye always stood out from the average person, perhaps most so in that he was always making sure that he did not follow the status quo. He has many moods and claims to have different personalitites, personified by the moods. This isn’t entirely accurate, but suffice to say, he’s slightly unstable and can be quite a rouge. Give him a duty which he believes in, though, and he’ll defend it as long as he can.
Money: $4,901
Profession: Photographer. (Has also learned some things in the ways of temporal science.)

Pharmacy meds: Flu medicine stomach ache medicine internal cleansing (induces vomiting) Allergy medicine Cold medicine 3. Leon Yggdras is the new town banker. The town bank is not in charge of actually storing money, but posting the latest stall stocks (instituting changes after last stall stock post) and tell how much money each person has. I often lose track of money and now I will never be at a loss when thinking about how much money I have. 4. We need a medic to run the hospital. If anyone wants to be a medic for the hospital, please say so. 5. Jaye Granger is holding a public digging project soon. Please join. Bring your own supplies. 6. I have decided we will change the purpose of the court to another facility. I apologize to Thomas Keeper, who worked to crate it, but I started this town to escape the law system, especially the judicial system. Thomas Keeper and I will decide what the building will be used for. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Novusoes Market Stalls Here I post the current status of each of the market stalls and their tenants.

Then, the mayor chooses who he thinks should be the next mayor. You may not choose yourself to0 be mayor.

I cut trees for 2 hours, getting 20 logs. I then work for three hours, aided by james, who helped me gather matirials and let me get in 3 and 1 half hours of work in three hours. In that time i finish my house.

I eat, feed james, and cut logs for 4 and 1 half hours. I then have 45 logs, and build 1 thnth of the town building in half an hour. I then take a nap.

I cut logs for 1 hour, getting 10 logs, and build for 1 hour, finishing stall 1. I then use the other 3 hours to build more of the town hall.

I cut trees and build for 2 hours each, finishing 2 stalls. I then work on the town hall, having james help. I manage to finish the whole town hall. I have decided to stop working on the public projects. I alone have built the town hall and 3 stalls in the marketplace. Its time for someone else to finish them. I will announce citizen of the week on mondays.

I hunt and fish for 2 hours, using 2 bullets in my rifle and getting 6 meals for both me and my pet. I then cut wood for 1 hour and build for 1 hour, creating stall that is not a buissness stall. I then go out of town for half an hour, gathering old blocks of metal. I then create an anvil and start a small, controled fire which is contained in a way to amplify the heat to ten times the original heat. We can now create metal objects. I create a pick axe using a 2 leftover pieces of metal. I now have a pic axe. The other block will be uced as a hammer. I hope to go to the mountains to the north and find ore I can make into metals. I hope to produce enough metal to give all newcomers and our curent citicens pick axes.
To recap, I have: A tent, 4 meals for me and my pet, fire wood for 2 fires, 6 uncooked meals for me and my pet, a tent, a sleeping bag, a lighter, and axe, a pick axe, a rifle with 18 bullets, and ice fishing pole, a pistol with 5 clips, 8 bait worms, $4,000, a small storage crate, and my family heirloom, a crystal vase.

 
Flag Post

I head north to the mountains and find ore to make metal with. This takes 2 hours. People now start with pick axes.
I make long metla bars, 12 medium sized and 4 large sized. I use the smallest ones to help support the market stalls at the corners, and the bigger ones to do the same to my house. this takes 1 hour. I then eat, feed james, and go to sleep.

PS: Please people, If you sign up, BE ACTIVE. Theres been noone but me here for the entire day.

I go into town to see the need for a town name,so I scribble ‘crozett’
I go back and scout the forest. I Look for some rocks,and find a nice sized one,and use my hatchet to smack away at the rock to make a few sparks (rock is flint) and give it an edge. After that I find a stick the right size to make a crude shovel.I go back and use any remaining bricks to make a firepit.I feed sparky With the seeds & berrys. I eat and go to sleep.

(also add a shovel!)

(I recommend Carlette for a name, that or Novuspes, which is New Hope in latin)

Begin setting up foundation to house, take break halfway through, eat, and feed falcon. Spend next few hours, finishing foundation. Head out to forest spend around an hour cutting down 10 logs. Use logs to make a stall in town square where I will set up a store. Takes around an hour.

Welcome to town, Thomas. They call me Ros. I hope you find this place a good home. Remember to check the billboard for news, market stall statusis, political info, advertisements, and more. I’ve decided to reserve a stall for you, but the only ones avalible are’nt build yet. If you want to build it, it will take 2 hours, 1 to get the 10 logs you need, and 1 to actualy build it. These stalls are public, so if you decided you dont wanna use a stall anymore, and then all the stalls get taken, too bad. Also, I can build and reenforce your house. In the event of a blizard, you have a 50-50 chance of having your house destroyed. If its reenforced, then you dont need to worry. And remember, your pet can help you. Seeing as its a falcon, it can help you hunt.

I can build your whole entire house, logging included, for $450. For $500 I’ll reenforce it too. Be aware this is fore a 9×12 house, the standard size for the cabins we build out here. Whet do you say, is it a deal? Now that you have the foundation, it will cost $350 for standerd, $400 for enforced.

It’s a deal. I’ll have it reinforced as well.

I vote for Idea three.

I after finishing my market stall, I head out to the forest and look for some flint rocks, for two hours. I find 10. I head over to the mountain, and I begin mining for some steel ore, for another two hours. I spend the next hour shaping the flint and steel ore in flint lighters. (After refining the steel of course.) I place them on one of my stalls shelfs, and I put up, a “Flint and Steel lighter” sign next to them. Pricing them at 2$ a piece.
