Clothing Industry and Marketplace

Under this proposal, a market square shall be developed in an appropriate location to be determined by the cartographer, and the citizens shall be allowed to offer their goods and services within its bounds. A forum shall be created in Nomia, in which a player can post an action as follows:

Give 10 silver coins to Cybele.

This proposal will have the effect of making silver coins transferable from one player to another, as well as any reasonably tangible commodities and items. In its initial form, the proposal will not attempt to designate a trade arbiter or escrow agent, but these may be viable options for future legislation.

This policy creates commodities, so the market square is just a way to make sure they can be freely traded. Again, leaving it open w/regard to the specifics.

This policy also introduces a new clothing industry, and an appropriately-titled Nomia subforum will be created to allow players to manage those factories which require an active choice.

(For example, "Convert 1 cotton and 10 coins into 1 crate of textiles")

Cotton Farm - Costs 50 silver coins, plus 10 per week to maintain. 1 crate of cotton/wk.
Textile Mill - Costs 75 silver coins. 1 cotton + 10 coins = 1 crate of textiles.
Clothing Factory - Costs 125 silver coins. 1 textile + 10 coins = 1 crate of clothing.

Clothing may be redeemed for 50 silver coins and 1 point per crate.

This might encourage some interesting business between players; some of us might save up and build a full path through the tree, while others might put together cooperative efforts. I'm seeing points as recognition for a community contribution, and in this case an encouragement to develop one's business.

To cover the costs of this policy, 50 silver coins shall be removed from the city vault.

How do people feel about this? It would certainly change the way Nomia works; definitely more competition, but at this point in the game, I think we need it.
