It is wrong (IMO) to sell off leadership with an account for best offer, but it has been done before. As long as there are more than one leader in the Parent Company, total control(friendly style) is not much different than it was.

There is serious problem and weakness in the system, however, in that a hostile person gaining a leader spot in the parent company can destroy(or as close as the diff matters little) a settlement in less than 5 min.

Precisely my concern.

I mean aside from buying the account ourselves there is nothing we can do to prevent this very scenario. Let's face it if it is sold for best offer and we get outbid, then all our work as a settlement is at the mercy of some random person.

I would take your best offer over someone else's, even if their's was higher. Sure I'd like to get a fair price, or at least break even, but I'm not looking to make a profit. PM me on the Paizo forums (geez I can't believe we don't have that function here)with your best offer and I'll consider it.

This is why I said I would inform Kenton Stone, before the transaction takes place. It would be great if someone that is already residing in Aragon would like to take over the account. Maybe Kenton knows someone that would be interested?

Being that my interests have moved well beyond PFO, and that so little movement within PFO has taken place, I don't really see my returning. But, if changes do come, then I'd certainly visit it if my account still remains.

It's a shame to see early starters go. All the best with wherever you move onto.

I appreciate that, and I wish those that remain luck with PFO.

I'm moving on to several titles that I've always been a big fan of, and they span several platforms and genres.

Robert E. Howard's Conan RPG, is a new 2D20 TT RPG
Conan Exiles - Open World Survival MPRPG (Funcom)
Age of Conan Unchained - MMO, Rage PvP server (Funcom)

These three games have two common threads. The first is obvious, the second is that the two developers (Modiphius and Funcom) are cross promoting each other's games, including creating source books and giving in-game items.

Sad to see you go.

Lol, yeah, well I've been gone for months and have quite a few interests on the horizon.

Maybe this isn't the place to ask this, but…

My impression I get here is that those characters will retain their leadership positions as settlement leaders of Aragon once the account has been finalized? I am not sure who currently is the settlement owner but is getting a leadership position in the settlement part of the sale?

No, the ownership of Aragon is still retained by Goodfellow, but you are correct that the leadership position of my characters will still be retained upon transfer. This is why I said I would inform Kenton of the transaction, so that he could prepare for it.

If that leadership has a value, that is built into the asking price. I'm not looking to make a profit, I'm essentially asking for what I paid + the available time remaining + all that my characters have. I think $550 is fair considering what other accounts have sold for.

Well, it is about time for me to move on… Looking to sell my account:

Reward Quantity
New Player Pack 0
Destinys Twin 0

Early Enrollment 1
Memorial of Honor 2
Soundtrack Download 1
1 Month game time 10
Alliance Pack 1
Regional Trait Pack 2

Two Characters, both Day 1 (Main and DT), and a 3rd untrained min. XP alt.

Tyv Blodvared (Rogue 12 / Fighter 10 / Cleric 4): Unspent XP = 408,540

Qiang Tian Zsu (Fighter 10 / Cleric 6): Unspent XP = 535, 758

My asking price is $550, considering it still has 10 months of prepaid game time, but I'm willing to accept nearest best offer.

Note: Both characters are Leaders of settlement of Aragon, so I would likely inform Kenton Stone before any transaction is finalized.

A Pathfinder mod to Life is Feudal might be a good adaptation of that genre.

But PvP sandbox battle arena is a different genre from sandbox PvP MMO.

I agree but I don't know what game you're talking about as either. PFO is not a PVP Sandbox Battle Arena, although there were certainly attempts to make it one. It just wasn't sandboxy enough. LiF does not have any mechanics to force its PVP into an arena, nor is it a true MMO.

After having played many different games these past few months, I can see the real appeal for Multiplayer over Massively Multiplayer.

I would just reverse your statement. Pathfinder is not a good adaptation to the genre that is explored by games like Life is Feudal. Rather the genre of Survival Open World Multiplayer RPG might be a good place for PFO to restart with.

Sandbox survival? I didn't get the vibe that this game was gonna be like Ark, 7 Days to Die, or Rust…

Besides, starting over from scratch would probably take at least another year or two won't it? I'd love to see a good 20 million poured in. Even with that the changes ain't gonna come right off the bat. May take a few months before the big changes come in.

My question is who is taking the reigns?

No it wasn't, but in hind sight it does look like the new trend is towards less MMO and more MP Sandbox using Public / Private servers, and GMs set the rules of their own server. All have one thing in common, and it was something that was supposed to be a key feature of PFO, "Building and Managing a Settlement".

Conan Exiles has the tag line of "Survive, Build, Conquer". Granted there was / is nothing threatening your survival in PFO, but the rest was there or supposed to be. With an IP as strong as Pathfinder, it might actually be more successful than most of the others.

I'll just wait for Summer Early Access of Conan Exiles.
