    PROVOZUKI GROUP

    The Provozuki Group grew out of the turmoil from the vandalization of the Tao cities in the Vandal Valley, and has been known to use forced labor from prisoners of war and other stragglers regularized into the Provozuki Combine, a subcontractor of the main Aretan army stemming out from the Warlords, but now formalized in the Provozuki group, which now mainly sells metal-based (iron) weapons, armor, tools and other things.

    Ice, Iron Resources cannot be micromanaged, either you have one or you do not. If you are asking to lease his other iron mine then make this more clear.

    Wouldn't leasing without receiving the tile benefits be the same thing as buying per turn.

    I would be more happy if you could contribute to our economy in some other capacity than doing exactly the same I am doing... :)

    You already got a pub and a bank going.

    Manufacturers cannot sell directly, you wrote that in the rules. Only way I can earn money is to set up a trading company (sogo shosha).

    Yes, but you can lease Iron out by permission (for a cost).

    Then I need to get a good offer first, now that I set up an expensive trading company for selling iron produce.

    Thank you. It's your job to note the transaction in the ART incase you haven't already.

    I deducted 1500 from your account for the HIM Company to be a manufacturer and a resaler, so this business already exists technically. So the confusion was on my part and everything is golden.

    Technically yes, but the point is if he gives you his other iron then he is down to 1. I was stating that a player cannot just sell you a chunk of a resource to use for a company. You must have the whole resource and be the only one using it.

    Then its a no go. And I would recommend Ice to work on a new resource, and stop plagiarizing my iron combine roleplay idea.

    As I see it, ice2k4's attempt at starting an iron business has failed. Not only did ice not present an offer to Povolution for the use of the iron, but it seems that Provo has decided not to share his second resource. The rules justify this end and the matter is resolved.

    Surely the next land lottery will see a play for the new iron resource in the Dark East :crazyeye: .

    So the items you sell here are all up North? Is shipping free of charge?
