Shadgard Metalcrafters Union

Post by Marcuson » Sat Sep 11, 2021 1:05 pm

Dylan is considering starting a company. The company's aim would be, in his words:
Speaking to Hoss, you explain, "The union'll be open to any folk that work with metal: miners, metallurgists, prospectors, and smiths. I got this idea that I'd pay miners above-market prices for metal, and other folk could buy ingots from the union supply. That way folks'd always be able to earn wages and practice their craft."
If a benefactor were to offer their support to the company (similar to the Shadgard Farming and Ranching Association) then what Dylan would ask for is a 20% reduction in consignment fees at the marketplace for members of the union. This would hopefully encourage members to add more goods for sale to the market.

The OOC reason for founding this company is that, right now, it seems difficult for PCs to earn a living just from mining. The company would help with that by paying miners for metal, which would in turn be made available to members of the union at cost. I'd like to get everyone else's input on the company idea, though.

An open invitation to all MINERS, PROSPECTORS, METALLURGISTS, and SMITHS! Join the Shadgard Metalcrafters Union! Fair prices for miners and a steady supply of available metal for workers! For more details, see the board in the workyard. - Dylan Cresswell, #5337

The Shadgard Metalcrafters Union will pay miners 200 riln for copper, 300 for iron, and 500 for tin - either ore or ingots. Union folks can buy the metal at cost and bronze ingots for 250. Guild-affiliated miners get free repairs on their pickaxes from any smith in the guild. That's all there is to it. Talk to Dylan to get set up.

The Shadgard Metalcrafters Union has received a shipment of steel. Union members can buy two ingots of steel every week for a thousand riln apiece. That way the steel can be made to last and is available to all union members who want to work with it. - Dylan

I've handed the steel over to Florenza. She'll be the union record-keeper. If any of you want steel, go to Florenza, pay the cost, and she'll disburse it to you and make a note. That goes for me, too. Every Lightsday, you can request more steel. Her color is Maroon, and her post number is 2994. - Dylan
