Selling Estates?
« on: November 16, 2015, 11:05:16 PM »
Hi Vincent,

So one of my players has dreams of being a corrupt landlord.

He used his first bit of treasure to lay foundations for a estate. Then in play he took out dodgy insurance polices on the property and rented it out to a desperate family of schmucks.  He has ambitions of buying more crap estates barley fixing them up then flipping them on the market for exorbitant prices or having "accidents occur" to collect on insurance.

Should we treat this as a enterprise as listed by the rules,  or is there a way he can turn estates he has invested in back into treasure?

The whole group finds the idea very entertaining  but is fuzzy on how to proceed mechanically.

Thanks!

PS. The treasure system really propels excellent adventures so far, the players ambitions really run the campaign!

Most of the first session revolved around the necromancer disinterring the bones of a recently killed heretical priest and binding his ghost just so he could find out who in the church would buy perjures cumin during the two month long holy festival of self denial.

Haha! That's great.

Good question, too. Let me think about it.

For now, maybe the thing to do is to handle it as an enterprise, but make liberal use of the estate tables for color.

The game will definitely include rules for liquidating your assets, turning them back into unexamined treasure, but I haven't written them yet.

I guess that you could play it under "invest on your estate and the opportunity to do so", the opportunity being that you rented your old state and moved out to a better one.
