I really want a player-run economy to really take hold, but the advertising of your wares and services might become annoying if we have 200+ people shouting in the alleys of the cities. So my solution: a board that can connect the public with crafters and crafters with gatherers.
So I made the Crafters Consortium.
What do I see this being used for?
Well, say you're a Miner and you want to let crafters know that you would be able to sell them materials through your bazaar/retainer. So you need the crafters to know where they can find your retainer. You can post the usual location on the boards.
Maybe you're a crafter and you mass produce consumables (food, potions), ingredients for further crafting recipes, or lots of low level gear and you also sell through bazaars or a retainer. Let the public know where to find your wares!
Maybe you're a crafter and you're able to do repairs or make items or gear that are usually not mass produced or have to be requested. Make yourself known here! You can even connect with potential customers here!
Edit: I'm going to split up each board into separate servers as we get people in different servers. I believe I'm planning on being on Besaid at the moment.
