[A] Royal Mail

Royal Mail
Royal Mail is the Alliance's designated Universal Postal Service Provider, supporting customers, guilds, businesses and communities across the Eastern Kingdoms. We are the only company that has the capability to deliver a ‘one-price-goes-anywhere’, six-days-a-week service on a range of letters and parcels to more than 6 million addresses across the Eastern Kingdoms.


Royal Mail needs You!
If you are short with coins, enjoy fitness lifestyle, have a need for community service then come and join us! For more information visit our headquarter in Dwarven District of Stormwind or contact directly Postmaster General Benjamin Lipwick (by mail, obviously).

OOC:

What is this all about?

The reason to start this concept was banal - I was running through Stratholm (I cannot count which time was it already) and after killing Postmaster I've looted a part of the set. And, again, this happened before that I had this idea: "How about post service based guild?" but up to this particular run one element was missing. Namely: an alt, which is otherwise not insertable to RP, but is there to be logged in from time to time, because of professions, additional bank space, whatsoever.

So, if you are in the same situation, I can simply ask for considering this. I am totaly aware that RP guilds requires time and effort, that it cannot be like: "I'll log in from time to time," but beeing a courier, deliverer, postman does not require a lot of skills, background stories, transmogs, etc. We all use mailboxes, either IC or OOC. We all know that there must be some invisible hand that takes all correspondence and distributes it to each and every addresse. My proposal is just to make these hands visible. Even for a blink moment. It obviously have some more potential in RP, but I can just wish this to happen. Convoys, criers, gossips, love affairs are just a few ideas that cross my mind right now.

The only thing you need is an alt that you use for disenchanting, fishing, engineering, bla, bla, and the Postmaster or the Gossamer set (without the hat and cape). You can run around the city IC, you can have a bank tab for your things, you can be one of those elements in the background that pleases the eye of both roleplayers and muggles.

Love it! If I had an alt to spare I'd get involved but damn this 11-slot limit. Very cool idea though.

Saw him last night running between post boxes, I have to admit, it made me laugh a little, though not in a bad way.

Would you consider doing message errands between guilds? Very Happy

It's hard work! Nothing funny in it! Razz

Answering your question, yes, I do. My general idea for this is that each person, that would like to send something, must whisper to a courier, what is the content of the letter. The courier's task is to note it down, or copy-paste it to TRP2 notepad, and deliver it.

I'll soon set the table of costs, detailing each type of delivery service.

I'm also thinking about resurecting something that was done before by the former guild Town Criers, which is delivering oral messages all over the city. I'm sure that guild recruiters could use it.

There are two of us currently, so I can't promise efficient and quick deliveries yet.

If I don't deliver a message in one to two days, then I'll send one with a description of the postamn meeting event.

When it comes to pricing.

According to "Prices and Economy of Stormwind" and "The current value of Money In Characterly?" the amount cannot be higher than 3c per item (10 times lower than in game price for a slot), no matter is it a letter or a parcel and where you want to send it.

I don't think there is something that would stand in a way to deliver those.

Ah yeah. I actually like using messengers and errand runners throughout roleplay. Perhaps a guild tag and a suitable outfit might give it a more formal style. I could drop an alt there I think Smile

I would like to promote my guild once again. Especially now, when we could use some "runners," some "criers."
It very often happens, that we log in, can't see anyone roleplaying, then log off or turn to a different character. We're passing by the most of the time, when one is active, the other is not, but then the situation very often switches.
I propose to join the guild with your bank alt. You'll find anything you need to resemble a postmaster. All you need/could do is to run (yes, literally) your bank alt from one bank to the other or one AH to the other. This way we create a repeatable movement of players IC, even though they stay IC for a very short moment.
Please, reconsider.
