How are your ships doing, Dave? The one at Chastity is a bit of a long ways away from anyone. idk if this suggestion would be any more effective, but what about putting the Disco Volante somewhere in between Skull Island and the mainland? idk if anyone else does it, but i prefer going overseas rather than underground when traveling to and from there. Alternatively, putting it in one of the rivers might spark some interest, if it'll fit.

Durham does well because people are farming the tennis balls, since they give you a ridiculous amount of gold for trade.  I think they do 30 gold coins each or somewhere around there.  The Trader in Durham must be completely stocked with them.

I have mentioned to Simon the idea of shifting the ships - specifically, the Disco Volante to the southern river. I hadn't thought about halfway to Skull Island. That's a great idea.

The Sulaco, out on Midway, probably isn't in too bad a spot, although if the DV was the midpoint to Skull Island, then the Sulaco could sit at the top of the swamp in the river I guess.

You say “Mexkrax - do you like our rebuilt road? Its in honour of you, babe. Coz, you know, we love you. True, genuine, honest love, that'd last a lifetime. And its not the booze talking. ”
You say “Bye bye Mexkrax. ”
You swing the ghastly jack o'lantern around.

You say “And that, my friends, is why we have a pumpkin patch. ”

The Hierophant and Billfred are like  friends . Mind you, Billfred's the OG [Original Genocider], TH is just aping the older characters. 

Er...anyway, a tsunami would be a pretty good idea, assuming that the area explored stayed the same, just covered in water tiles.

Some pretty good roleplay here. The reason for not setting it in York is fairly obvious, but it's still remarkable to me that a bunch of ruins near a half-built road would be able to generate so much traffic.

Central location in the middle of the island: very close to arterial routes such as the river and the main (east-west) road: welcomes outsiders and natives alike: inhabitants are a resource (they give out valuable supplies such as fungi juice, weapons, and FAKS).

I know Pike's farm gets a lot of visitors, too, for more or less the same reasons.

And yes, The Stone Owl Tavern was fun, but York doesn't have the same benefits in terms of location and collegiality.

I expect there will be a lot more visitors around Xmas time given Santa's Grotto is a small sneeze away (and I assume at that spot because it is centrally located and near major arterial routes).

Until the signpost smasher goes away, I've set 'Dani alakazam' to trade between villages, not just to earn some pocket money but also to boost the game's economy - fungi juice, pistols, wooden clubs, rare novelty items, and bullets at native villages / poison darts at outsider villages. I'll add Gibraltar to the circuit.

I can't find it anymore. I saw some ruins nearby the Grotto but Pike was living there.
