I have been thinking about our issue, that being a lack of unity and a lack of people. And I believe there may be a solution to one or both. That of a server recruitment drive.
Nothing to complicated or requirirng to much effort. The idea is simple. Announce on the general forums a time and place on Bonny when new players to Bonny (on the french side) can pick up a Bermuda Sloop for free. Since sloops are rather cheap to make and take few resources, the costs can be absorbed easily.
But at the same time, this offering might bring in more players to the server, even up the sides a little, And could garner some good will from the rest of the french people concerning us. By what I have read, we are seen as parias right now.
I would offer that we initially start with a small number of ships. And if we see a large enough demand and benafit. That this could be turned into a more regular thing with a greater quantity of deeds. Oppinions?
