Introduction and Process for ApprovalEdit
Cities, towns, and villages dot the landscape of Eleutheria, and each such location has its own rich flavor and history. However, many locales share similar structures, and the building of such structures provide benefits that elevate a town above a mere crossroads in the highway to a true, thriving community.
Each of these unique structures can be designed in any manner or style, so long as three conditions are met:
- The structure must meet the requirements, whether they be size, block type, or other restriction.
- The structure may not be merely made out of cobblestone. Use creativity and originality, there are many block types and countless styles to choose from!
- The structure must pass inspection by the admin or ops--notify one via the forums or in-game chat when the structure is ready for approval.
Once a structure has demonstrated that it meets the criteria set out below, the admin or ops will populate the structure with the requisite NPCs, thus giving your town the bonuses desired. The admin or ops can customize the NPCs (within reason) to meet the flavor of your town, whether that be choosing between several types of skins, weapon types, or even in some cases names or dialog. Do note, however, that the more creative structures will be considered prime candidates for more customization in the NPCs. The requirements for the size and block usage should not be considered mere minimums for acceptance, but guidelines and a starting point for an exciting and creative structure. Remember Rule Two!
Finally, certain structures have multiple tiers of benefits or NPCs; expanding the structure will require only the upgrade cost and the remodeling necessary to meet the additional requirements.
Banks provide that most essential of economic services, the safeguarding of the money of the citizens. While the smallest local banks lack all but the most essential protections, the larger regional and international banks serve as a seat of commerce in a city, exchanging currency between far-flung civilizations and maintaining the wheels of commerce. An individual with money in the safes of an international banker may access that money from any international banker throughout the world, while money in the keeping of a regional banker may be accessed throughout a single nation.

Eleutheria's alchemists and healers often relied upon exotic ingredients for their potions and poisons, so when many of these creatures vanished from the forests and caves of the world, a crisis of sorts developed. Happily, other more distant lands did not suffer the same shortages, and the town apothecary sells many of these strange and unearthly items for use in various potent elixirs and draughts.
Requirements: 8x8x8; Living Quarters, Shop Area, and Fireplace
Unlocks: Ingredient Seller (Trader, Potion ingredients now inaccessible)
The extinction or near-extinction of the artificial creature Suinae displodens, the "exploding pig," widely and colloquially referred to as the "creeper," caused a major crisis in the manufacture of explosives for mining and warfare. Although the creeper itself was originally created in the mythic days of ancient history, the secret of manufacturing sulphur for explosives was lost until the present day, when fearless Demolitionists began to offer it for sale at markets across Eleutheria. These Demolitionists sell only the explosive powder, counting on the technical acuity of the purchaser to craft the final explosives.
Unlocks: Demolitionist, Trader NPC who sells sulphur for 1 denarii each
While the continents of Eurus and Zephyros hold large quantities of natural resources yet untapped, the far northern continent of Borealis, the home to the vast majority of the world's population, lacks all but the smallest quantities of easily-accessible clay for the manufacture of bricks. Not to be deterred by the cruel tricks of natural phenomena, the citybuilders of Borealis dug deep into riverbeds and shorelines to find deeper deposits of clay. These wet, filthy, and dangerous pits hold the key to beautiful brickwork for Eleutheria's largest cities.
Requirements: One chunk in total size, at least six blocks deep on average; at least twenty clay blocks in the pit; use of wooden (slabs, fenceposts) supports; a single building for the Pit Overseer.
