We, the owners of this seaside village of Bastion's Point are both excited and humbled by the interest to visit and live in our Player Owned Town. When we started this endeavor, we simply wanted a place for our guild to be able to live and collaborate together in a fun environment without having to worry about Land Rushes and region seperation. We knew we would have extra land and so we welcomed like-minded individuals to join us here in the hopes our village would prosper. Well it has! Beyond any of our initial thoughts.
As of this writing we have filled all of our allocated properties in Bastion's Point! We do have a couple in reserve for owners and future options of Sacrifice but we can announce we are certainly over 95% full.
With that said, we are still recieving requests from individuals to live or upgrade here. As owners, we feel Bastion's Point has achieved size-wise everything we would ever need but we also feel that we should allow the opportunity for our community to grow if it can recieve the financial support needed to do so. To that end, we have decided to open up a donation box for the upgrade of Bastion's Point! Lets talk about the details.
Bastion's Point is currently a Village sized Player Owned Town. We feel that we could let it grow up to 2 sizes bigger and still retain the community and manageable size we want to have. Our fear, however, is that we do not want to upgrade beyond our ability to fill the allocated square footage in that upgrade. Which is why we have decided to only do the upgrade once it is 100% funded by individuals looking for a great place to live (or upgrade). Although you can certainly donate to upgrade of the Bastion's Point just to see it grow, we are offering lot marker allocations based upon donation size. We have divided out the upgrade costs by lot sizes and come up with an amount that will get the upgrade funded.
Here is Breakdown of where we are now, and what we could upgrade to:
Add. Village Lots
Cost w/15% Discount
* Please Note the Upgrade Price is IN ADDITION to the price below it. So $510 + $1020 = $1530 to go from Village to Town.
Whenever there is a 15% discount we will convert donations to store credit to save as much money as possible.
I have broken down the square footage into Village Lots to make it easier to compute the upgrade size. Calculations can be made using the following:
1 Village Lot = 4 Row Lots
2 Village Lots = 1 Town Lot
4 Village Lots = 1 City Lot
For the Upgrade, Donation Lot Allocations to the Upgraded Area would be based upon the following prices:
$227 for a City, $114 for a Town, $57 for a Village and $15 for a Row.
There is a PAYPAL Donation link setup below, but you can also donate via Add-On Store Credits! See Aartemis for details.
With the Cost and Upgrade Additions laid out, lets talk a bit about how we would make this happen. Once we see that we have enough money donated for an upgrade, the owners will get together and draw up a lot map based upon the donated lot allocation that made up the upgrade. Our plans are to push out from the Village Proper, and develop a NEW "South Village" that leads out towards the inland lake and waterfall area. How exactly this area will lay out will be determined by what lot markers need to be placed from the funding.
We have a basic idea in mind for the South Village area but we have left open the ability to make modifications based on lot sizes and allocations. What you would know, as a donator would be that you had a lot marker in your name reserved in the new area.
NOTE: WE DO NOT PROVIDE LOT DEEDS, ONLY THE MARKER TO CLAIM THEM ON!
Finally, we would like to say that due to the nature of the donation and upgrade process, we cannot offer any refunds once the donations are made. We will make every dollar count towards the good of the town. Eventually, the goal will be met and the town upgraded. Once upgraded, donating players will have 60 days to claim thier lot, or notify us so we can make provisions. Failure to do so will forfiet the lot marker back to the common square footage.
Also, if we reach our upgrade goal due to smaller donations without Lot Marker requests, the owners will choose acceptable lot markers in the South Village and mark them as open to the public upon release of the new area.
We hope that you think this is a fair proposal for upgrading Bastion's Point. We tried very hard to come up with a plan that could be 100% community funded since we have already invested into our town what we felt it needed to support our Guild, yet still give it the opportunity to grow.
Our player owned town Bastions Point is currently Village sized. We have started a funding goal to a Crossroads Village Upgrade with no end date. Details can be found on the Bastion Point Upgrade Page. NOTE: Donations can also be made via In Game Credit. Contact Aartemis for Details.
