    You call out "Fire!" and release the mechanism on an Arcanian arm thrower.
    A roped hookshot blasts out from "Lorielan's Icebox" and slams into a colossal kraken, but seemingly
    does nothing more but anger it further.

    (Clan) Ada says, "I just wanted shin!"
    (Clan) Astarod says, "What do I look like."
    (Clan) Astarod says, "A shin dealer?"
    (Clan) Ada says, "LOL."

    Just a funny snippet I lol'd at.

    Best tell in ages:

    Bann tells you, "Probably because you just rubbed your testicles on their foreheads in public. Needed to be done though. That's fucked up."

    P.S. Then ensued a discussion as to whether testicles could be metaphorical given my lack of same.

    I'm confused about the 100k thing. How much did you pay for the shop?
    Give us -real- shop logs! Not another misinterpretation of features we ask for, turned into something that either doesn't help at all, or doesn't remotely resemble what we wanted to begin with.

    Thanks!

    Don’t shops go for like 2000 credits? I seriously don’t know, just what I’ve heard.

    It's also a transplant from Shallam, isn't it? This could mean it's potentially worth more. 

    We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

    Oh wow, well... quite the racket they got going on over in Targossas then I guess.

    I thought credit scams were illegal?

    Suffice it to say, even 500 years ago (I was about 30ish I think when I bought it) I paid more than 100,000 gold.

    Did you pay 2000 credits to IRE or Shallam?

    It's your inheritance son, you should know the value of Mommy's estate.

    P.S. Yes indeed, they do. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. But not, uh, 100,000 divided by 14,000 per credit is how much? less.

    Credit prices ages ago were less than 14k. You also have to factor in how much money you've saved by... Long term leasing, paid up front. By you know. Not paying a lease. Lemme tell you. I'm doing some math. Its a lot over here in hashan (10 mil for 500 years). Not to mention owning and running a shop and the profits that provides.

    By the game's rules, it's only fraud if you make a deal involving credits with another player. If you make a deal with a -city-, they can screw you out of whatever you want just fine (and frequently do).

    Of course it isn't a transplant from Shallam. The destruction of the city was pretty quick, we didn't have time to take any of the shops with us...

    Long term leasing is still leasing </The More You Know>

    Curious if the argument could be made that the city was just the beneficiary and the verbal agreement made with at least one player?

    Also unclear to me why that would affect the price anyway. Do shopkeepers in Achaea care about the history of the shop they're replacing? "There used to be one of these in Shallam" doesn't seem like a massive selling point, but I also don't understand paying 2000 credits for a shop.

    Are people really going to try and justify giving someone 100k gold, in place of the potential 2000 credits she could have gotten, if Targossas wasn't having a childish temper tantrum? 
    I mean. Except the part where she had 500 years of no lease payments... Which, following Hashan's structure of something like 15k / year to lease.. issss 7,500,000.. when 2000credits back then were something like 5.5k cr per (at least the earliest accounts from 505 were that much)... Is she getting less? Yeah. 

    Wanna see if Hashan can do better? ;)

    Wait..  5500gp/cr x 2000cr = 11,000,000gp

    11,000,000gp / 500yrs = 22,000gp per year lease.  

    Just so Im clear, are we arguing it is better or worse that even at market rates from 500 years ago, she/he still paid more technically?

    Or that owning the shop today would value it somewhere close to 28,000,000gp?

    They do have that power, though. It's the same hidden cost for factional classes, player housing, and even paying to be unenemied.

    I'm not trying to say that anyone deserves to get hoed out of an investment, but on the same token, if you are a member of a faction and have involvement in another faction (whether that's membership in a potentially conflicting order, a subdivision house or shop in a city you are not a part of, etc) the onus is on you to keep an eye on how the wind is blowing and act accordingly. I had three shops for the longest time (one in Hashan, one in Mhaldor, one in Delos). Regardless of me not participating in the offense, I sold my Hashani shop when Mhaldor started to regularly shit on/raid Hashan again because I knew what was likely to happen.
