Neuer Contest?

Is there a new Contest? If so, could someone be so kind as to place the rules in the International Section? Thanks.

Contest-Smalltalk 2013

The location of the pirates in the tavern vengeance missions are much like the bride selection; save and reload, different locations will appear. For the bride, once her picture appears, save before accepting. You may alter her age, and the dowry and ship condition change as well. Cargo is indeed the fourth criteria; but interesting to try with a lower number. I could build as may ships as I desire; I am holding to Luebeck only deliberately. In early October, I am second on the Luebeck list for ...

Contest-Smalltalk 2013

On 1 OCT of 1300 I was promoted to Patrician status in Luebeck. Seven ships, at cargo capacity 93. Company value is just under 1 million; about half of that is in cash. Interesting contest; an exercise in minimalism. I built nothing but one warehouse in Luebeck, and as few ships as possible. I added only three new offices, so far. No loans made, no bribes.

Very much appreciated. It is most kind of you. Now one correction: "Pigeons" should be "Doves". In English, a pigeon is someone who has been, or will be, cheated or taken advantage of. A dove is someone peaceful. And one question: Is it the average total cargo capacity of the ships throughout the game or just at the date of the Alderman election? Lowest number is best, is it not?

I notice a new contest! If someone would be so very kind, could the rules be translated to English, in the International Forum? I am not certain the Google translator is accurate, but it seems rather appealing. Thanks.

Contest 2007 Smalltalk

In English, there is a word, "spoiler" which refers to someone who tries to cause big problems or ruin something. I was very tempted last year with the population contest to be a spoiler, and in fact wrote Bizpro about it. The trick was found years back by a player named Kaiser, and we called it Kaiser's Beer Trick. In Patrician 2, if you donated one beer per day, it attracted beggars. A bigger donation, more. By donating every day, he achieved a population of over a million citizens in Luebeck ...

RE: Patrician, and the Game You Play

Greetings, Wasa. Yes, you understood well. I posted before a story about a contest to determine who should be the King of Beasts. The eagle said it should be judged as who was the highest and fastest flier. The dolphin, the best swimmer. The mole, the best digger. And the lion, whoever was the strongest. What a person feels is the best for a contest says much about what the person really values, about what is in his heart. Voting? I find myself a minority frequently. Benjamin Franklin said Democ...

Patrician, and the Game You Play

You all owe my return in this discussion to Bizpro, who was kind enough to post my picture on a milk carton. I will leave it to him to translate, and to take the heat as well. In America, Patrician is just about dead. Patricianworld, our first board, http://www.md-gameinfos.de/patrizier/int…15afd67348bffff is a ghost town, mostly frequented by a congenital idiot who spams pornography links, online purchases for cialis and viagra, and assorted other crap. The Tavern's Side Room has dwindle...

The Road Less Traveled

Still plodding along like a tortoise, I have finally finished July, and as of the 31st of the month:Offices: All are built, with three complete with administrators.Ships: Nine now, none from pirates. Five more are under construction in Edinburgh, London, Bruegge, Bremen and Goteborg, two of which are cogs. Pitch is still my limiting factor for the present. I have six captains, will have two more on the 1st. All running ships so are snaikkas. Businesses: Forty one, in varying states of constructi...

RE: New towns

I am not that far along yet, moving pretty slowly, only to July so far. I would recommend Newcastle, personally. Novogorod is way out there, off the beaten path. Helsinki, much the same but has the advantage of deepwater port facilities, and close to the Lagoda brickyards and construction materials. What goods were you offered?

Moving costs. Ouch. Cost me almost a million to move to Bruegge n July. I wonder what they do with the cash? I jumped to Patrician though. Nice. What have you all been paying?

Plodding along like a tortoise, I have finally finished June, and as of the 30th of the month:Building permissions: Four. Danzig came in on the 26th, and I built my office there, for a total now of four trade offices. Stetin came in before Danzig, awaits Ig to build. Seven to go, sigh ... just waiting permissions. Ships: Five now, one came as a dowry. Two more are under construction in Edinburgh, and another in London. Pitch is my limiting factor for the present. I have two captains. All ships s...

So, one of the new towns is Ripen. Are the other two choices Novgorod and Memel? Personally, I am considering trying for bricks as one of the new town's goods. That means a pottery shortage. With all the upcoming construction needs, it might be very useful to have the first new town producing bricks, timber, and perhaps wool or wine. For convenience's sake, below is the list of goods which when in short supply will generate the following goods: Beer-IG Ore-wool IG-honey Skins (furs)-fish Timber ...

Thanks. I play on a laptop, touchscreen. Middle and index finger fatigue. As you can probably guess, the captain from Edinburgh was the one I used. I bought some Ig and grain in London, and sailed to Edinburgh. I daytraded everything, anything I could make a profit on, like beer at 1 per barrel; stayed until I had enough pitch, cloth, to build a second ship, and sailed to Brugge carrying pig iron, too. Sailing time was more important, had to adjust the cargo until it took only three days. I told...

Just to see if I could count coup on you, my friend, I played as a peaceful trader, and tested out some ideas as well. Herewith are the results:Building permissions: Two. Edinburgh came on the 19th, and Brugge on the 23rd. Ships: Just one, with a solitary captain. There are three more snaikkas under construction, one each in Edinburgh, London, and Brugge. Businesses: Eight, nearly all complete, including a iron goods workshop, two smelters, a sawmill, and four brickyards. All wells are built in ...

There is also variability from when you start on a voyage of discovery. As an example, the same ship off to America may return weeks earlier starting one day later.

RE: Contest 2007 Smalltalk

I don't much like to shoot up the ships; so, for the mission in Bremen, and in Danzig, I did a modified Cascade. I boarded with one snaikka, and lost; on the next screen I had a second snaikka waiting, engaged, boarded, and won. Took a while to set up properly though, and cutlasses being still scarce had to divide them between the ships. You still get paid off for delivering the escort, even though your ship was boarded and looted.

Excellent guess! The next captain, after Edinburgh is hired, is in Danzig. He is a decent one, and trades at level 4. When he is hired, there appears one who is a good fighter in Oslo (level 4). Danzig has an escort mission available, for a crayer. Now, the escort mission in Hamburg is interesting. I did score a crayer from it. THAT was tricky, indeed! First permission came from Gotenborg, before promotion to Trader. Now, the elections will be interesting. Trader on June 1st, Merchant on July 1s...
