    The Renaissance Platinum System

    Honestly, I think they should take two slots, but considering they are non-combative, probably just one. I don't think they took any slots on OSI, but I could be mistaken.

    Oh, also, that runebook dye is not the definitive hue selection, but merely a sample thrown together to demonstrate the tub possiblities.

    In regards to the carpet, I really think they should be dropped to 5p per unit. The cost to carpet a single small home would be 750p at the rate above.
    While I don't want things too cheap, I think that 125p to carpet a small is fair, wherein 750p is exhorbitant.

    Decorative Cannon - Place a cannon in your house which can be fired, causing a spectacular explosion.
    Tree Stump - A stump from a cut-down tree, faces two directions, with and without an axe, and yields 10 random Logs a day.
    Sheep Statue – This statue will give 10 pieces of a random hide or wool each day, holding up to a maximum of 100 pieces


    Do the first two apply here and can we get the third?
    lol

    Motion on the floor to add eternal mounts! It sounds even better than ethereal! :lol:

    Allow me to join in stating the obvious - this system is cooler than I can express in words. I am so glad I found this server!

    I like the runebook dye tub, however I think that some of the hues are far too out there, I think that the ore-colors from the furny tub would be perfect for runebook dye hues.

    Ethereal mounts are mounts that cannot be killed, when you dismount from them you get a little horse/llama/ostard "statue" in your backpack, when you double click this you will "cast" and summon your mount. The benefiet of this is that you cannot lose your mount as it is blessed, and as soon as you ress you can mount up.

    You can play around with these on test server.

    Those were just examples, the runebook dye tub shares the same palette as the leather dye tub.

    What is an ancient MIB? Is that different than a regular MIB?

    Historicaly they were special MIB's you fished up and when you found and fished up the location contained within you received a special chest, level 4 loot.

    However on Renaissance they are being worked into a custom spawnable boss event, where you fish up a ghost ship and its undead pirate captain and have to fight your way onboard to get the treasure.
