Trade Coalition

Recommended Posts

Mapesy    3

As there are becoming more and more traders i was thinking of setting up a Trade Coalition, weather it is guns or clothes you sell it matters not! Also as there are traders within the larger established clans / alliances / groups i would also like to see those individuals take part in Trade Coalition convoys or trade posts! 

1. The TC would not hold loyalty to any group whilst on trade missions there fore becoming neutral to any conflict that might arise!

2. A TC trader can trade in anything from food to information!

3. Groups  outside of  the TC  can order caravans to be sent but are responsible for there safety!

4. TC members are responsible for setting up there own shops and negotiating price!

5. outside groups can use the TC as confidential storage!

I do have a Teamspeak server that could accommodate a trade forum!

these is all just basic ideas that i am throwing out there for all to scrutinise   

  

i do appreciate all  constructive feedback  !

The only think i will warn you about is people will attack you just due to you wanting to be neutral. Its silly but it is a trend that happens. Other then that i would love to see this. I know a lot of trading groups are waiting for persistence to return but i don't see why you cant get a head start. Lets all hope the new patch solves our problems and lives up to the hype. I like it and good luck m8.

The been neutral is only towards other groups whilst trading, if attacked traders have every right to defend themselves unless in a caravan then it would be the responsibility of the group ordering the convoy!

Cool idea, but definitely going to be an open target for not so friendly guys. Should maybe think about hiring some guards or private military for protection. It would be hard to be completely neutral to be honest...

Would look forward to seeing this idea in the field!

Many have tried this, many have failed. I believe Mr. Denver is right in the fact that you will be a target, no matter what, even if you are neutral.

My reasons are as follows

1. You have things, people want things. Guns, food, clothing, water, ammo. If it can be carried, they want it. (This can also be good for trade but bad when it comes to robberies/initiations)

2. If you don't choose a side or ally yourself with other groups, people can see that as weakness and oppertunity

3. Staying in one place for too long is bound to make the bad rp come to you eventually.

Nonetheless, wait for next patch and try. We need traders, we need shrewd merchants out in the world who are actually looking to sell wares rather than shout out. "EMRAGAWD IS THAT AN AKM? CAN I TRADE YOU FOR MY MOSIN, AND MY GORKA PANTS ERMAGAWD I WANT PLEASE -cue frothing at the mouth-"

I say go for it, nothing good comes without risk.

I completely understand what you guys are saying but if we can get a group going currently 3 of us then defending ourselves wont be a problem, i think in the 1st point you make that apply s to everybody playing in the RP universe not just to traders! As i am playing as a trader currently i have found that you have greater opportunity for RP of various types weather its trade negotiations or hold-ups!

your last point, we do move about and have a thread called "severograd store" we move around every couple of weeks but when we do we change the name of the thread to the new town ( mainly because we have recurring customers now & morphine deal ongoing), we explain it ic by leaving a note on our previous shop wall (ooc forum post)!

i try and RP situations out by bartering, offering fixes/patches for clothes and shoes, carrying a tent i also offer a temporary place to get a little shut eye!

but there's nothing better then sharing a coldish can of k-vass and learning things!!

you want to be a trade coalition? make sure you're ready to be attacked, you make the wrong enemies playing trader, if you want to. make sure you have the right friends, right people to do it with. IG connections are incredibly important for this kinds of groups, you don't want people to fuck with you? get a merc to fight side you, hire a group or 2 as protection. think of this as Freeside from New Vegas, you cant get from one side to the other without being attacked by some low life bandit. you want a service that can be protected? get defenses, make a name for yourself or chose an already developed group in game, make the group in game first before on the forums, spread the world bout it.

I have a boyo in my group playing a trader, group in game that you may or may not have heard of, The Casino. due to my characters bandit past, I gain quite a lot of backup from ex reapers, made friends with volki and rodina but my group is still not up yet. develop it in game, hire people first, soon once people hear of the traders they'll come rushing in, in game information is incredibly important not just forum info. if I knew you had a trading store in Sevograd OOC, I wouldn't go there unless I had heard about it in game. so look around and develop it first before you decide to make a thread, and always if it fails you can always come work in the black market of The Casino :3

see ya bud.. and as always... May Fortune Be With You

What you need to do is go ally yourself with the chedaki and use them as bodyguards when you go around and flaunt your goodies. :3

I love the idea of running into a caravan or traders IG. Keep pushing at it, this sounds awesome!

Agreeing with Denver and others on these points. Start flirting with it in game and working on your security protocols and business practices. Then when persistence does return, you'll be ready to rock and roll! Good luck!
