Ladies and Gentlemen!
Today is a big day. After years of constant designing, alteration, tweaking and the occasional biome change, we've successfully managed to settle on a final design for Beran's Reach. And it's a good one. I cannot think of a better design that will capture the essence of what we set out to achieve so long ago when Player Owned Towns were little more than an idea. With an urban feel, thick walls and offset by winter wilds beyond, I have no doubt that Beran's Reach will prove to be a popular settlement. And why shouldn't it. With so many veterans in the community, as well as many new and eager faces we have just the right mix to make this work.
So, we have a design. Now we need to start giving people a home.
Armed with our list of citizens as well as with a list of requirements, we'll very soon we starting to allocate individuals to their chosen lot types. We'll be contacting each and everyone one of you in order to ascertain where in Beran's Reach you would like to live. This requires input from you to confirm which plot you'd like to select based upon the map found here and the current list of plot allocations which can be found here. With over a hundred people to get through and with only 13 days to do it in you will have only 24 hours to respond with your requirements before we move on to the next individual in the list. As a result, it's important that you check back with the website regularly until R32 hits. We'll do our best to be as quick as we can.
We've been as accurate as we can with our designs, using both previous iterations of the forest biome map as well as the best mapping tools we could come up with to check that our design works. However, we're bound to hit the odd-snag. with the chance that we might have to make a few changes as we go. Please bear with the Tavern Council while we deal with plot allocations and begin the process of mapping Beran's Reach out on the day of release. There might be a need for stone as well, so worst comes to the worst you can always take your frustrations out on a bit of rock for the cause!
The finish line is nearly in sight guys. No more wipes. No more rebuilds. We've waited so long for this time to come and now it's nearly here! So, keep an eye on your inbox's and prepare to stake your claim in the 'Reach. You've earned it.
