We added a new region, Carriage Trade Royal, which has been largely landscaped and subdivided. There are mini stables on both the eastern and western sides of the region; the western side of the region also has house/stable estates. You will notice there is new set of stalls, the Royal Mews Stable, which will be opened later in the month (more on that later). The Chateau will be available for wedding rentals, and there is a special mare & foal turnout that will be added as well. The central area will remain largely parkland that may be repurposed for events.
Secondly, we’ve begun renovating Carriage Trade North. The western and eastern sides of the region have been renovated. We added a village of small cottages (Gretna Green) to replace Saratoga. Gretna Green also contains a blacksmith crafting site to be incorporated with the future roleplay system. Additional plans are in the works for the central portion of the region.
We have added a chariot racing course in a version of the Circus Maxiumus. There is a teleporter to take you up; it’s a little tricky so follow the instructions carefully. The teleporter is located on Market Street against the Tack Room wall.
We have appointed Moonsorrow Magic as our Head of Security here @ Carriage Trade. Moon’s role is to oversee possible security issues. Please see Moon if you have a stalker or any similar concern.
We have appointed Tyr Fluffy as Livery Lead. Tyr will be responsible for checking in new livery horses, training them on livery and carriage courses, defining new livery and carriage courses and training Wedding Leads. Please see Tyr if you wish to be registered as a livery horse and make sure you are checked in. She will begin training on the new livery and carriage routes in the next week.
We are developing a series of historically accurate and interactive carts/carriages/wagons. We’ve moved them into a larger version of the Tack Room and will be putting them on rezzers for better shopping. Lastly, we have a Midnight Mania Board in the Tack Room.
