We can amputate and supply you with the required leg...for a fee of course.

 

The leg we'll amputate for free. :) The replacement... well, like Kael said. :D

Tortuga---who-do-you-wnat-to-be2.png

 

The Tortuga City building contest for Pre Alpha has concluded and the winners are Kurock, Agilolfing, Captain Hilts, Lau2356, and Sunrider. They will be the first among many to help layout the final layout and design for Tortuga City. Keep an eye out for future events from Tortuga City as we begin to flesh out roles of administration as required throughout testing.

 

This project has come a long way since its inception, with a community already beginning to flourish on Discord. Why not come join in on the fun and help make a badass home for yourself?

While those with Pre Alpha access have been working on Tortuga in-game, @Agilulf put together a writing group to create an episodic series called "Tales from Tortuga". 

 

Check the main thread out here. :)

Sorry, tilt.

 

Good job or (assuming it was easy), good selection. Depending on where the city might actually end up you can also ironically switch the slogan or motto around with dark place and safe space.

So I was thinking "What is Project Tortuga?"

Obviously, a safehaven for criminals.

Let me introduce everyone to something called guerrilla marketing and associative marketing.

A hidden criminal empire that the only data you can pry is a few numbers. Make everything public and Tortuga loses the appeal. What you do is let a few reap the benefits, and let the rest follow in. This is guerrilla marketing- you put in little effort to advertise, and word gets out on street that you sell the good shit.

Now, associative marketing. This isn't a widely-accepted term because there are synonymous ways to address this. Basically, you associate a main idea upon your brand.

Let's think of McDonalds. You think of an arched yellow 'M', you think McDonalds.

Sassy twitter? Wendys.

Fast food with Christian values? Chick-fil-a (which banks on hyper-religious people).

 

Let's put those together. For minimal effort and plenty of profit, you have an iconic symbol and nothing more.

Nothing. At. All.

You still have the org running, but the public face of it is blank. People underestimate. Those same people don't benefit.

Together isn't better.

Better is together.

How is this project coming along? Went and watched your interview with Dual Insider, but it seemed like you struggled with some of the answers. I understand as well, always had the same issue with my project and Emberstone.

 

I mean you no harm but you came off as trying to have your cake and eat it to between the BOO video and the Tortuga video. On one hand its unbridled aggression, and the other its dont worry its a friendly community safe zone. I was once ridiculed for having too many irons in the fire, are you now faced with a similar conundrum?

 

For the good of the community though I hope that a newbie friendly zone that isn't surrounded by hungry veterans looking to raid will exist. Good on all those with the moxie to stick with trying to find a real answer for the benefit of the game and the good will of future players. Look deep and think long, don't let anyone be your masters.

 

Good fortunes and happy Halloween to all!

because tortuga and BOO are different entities? As @Alethion described: it started off as a BOO project and ofc it has this dark/pirate/outlaw subtone for the city. But it's a community project with all kind of ppl from different orgs involved.

 

Seeing BOOs actions as "unbridled aggression" is one way to put it I guess - if you have no clue what BOO really is about. We can live with that ;)

Many areas will likely face this problem. In an ironic way, even safe zones aren't fully safe: yes, a city, district, station, building might be protected. But the zone eventually ends. Attackers can roam the areas on the border of any safe zone.

 

But I mean Tortuga even has dedicated security, police and military orgs to defend it so I guess they will do notably better or be better off than other areas or zones. Here, you have a big(ger) pool of personnel to put into dedicated security roles.

 

If you are a raider out for quick profit, why bother if you can potentially get smashed fast when there is other weaker targets? As criminal, do you want to mess with big parts of the community or in the sense of the founders, other outlaws and pirates?

 

Tortuga will see a fair share of events and maybe even action. But it should, by my guesses, be better off and relatively safe.

 

And if external threats become a problem, you... scale reactions accordingly.
