Bouillabaisse Item Description: Bouillabaisse is a traditional fish stew made by boiling several species of fish with herbs and vegetables. The broth is then served as a soup poured over bread seasoned with rouille (a spicy mayonnaise) with the fish and vegetables served separately.

Sole Meunière Item Description: A fillet of sole dredged in flour, pan fried in butter and served with the resulting brown butter sauce, parsley and lemon.

Fairly belated but will add those. If you have more suggestions for food items for Dementlieu, please post descriptions with item appearances here and a possible cost for them.

Emmanuelle's Fashion

Can we please give this store a much-needed overhaul? There's nothing wrong with the appearance of the clothing items, or the selection offered, just some details that don't make a lot of sense to me. For example, You pay hundreds of coins for these 'noble gowns/suits' and the description's do nothing to indicate such. Could we please add even just a generic description of 'This is a well tailored gown of silk, something, blah blah blah' and set the quality to excellent or some such, or indicate the material as silk. Heck, maybe even a small influence boost.

Instead of what we have now  -

Could some consideration be given to adding more NPC's to the Marchand? There's quite a few sailors on Widows Walk and two gendarme but other than that the area feels rather empty. The ouvier, publique and savant all are pretty well fleshed out with life but the marchand is a bit lacking imo.

Some suggestions:

A pair of pistolers out side of Gearlings.
A few commoners along the upper streets.
Some outdoor vendors with stalls next to the tanner. Baked goods, fresh fish.
Some shady looking men in the concealed alcove behind the broken spire.
A beggar or two spread out.
A drunk in front of the mutinied Sailor.

A pair of armed guards outside of Gearlings would make sense. They could be scripted to head inside and guard the store after dark.
Outdoor vendors are also a good idea to give the area a more mercantile type of ambiance. Maybe show off the imported products that Dementlieu is known for.
Rest are cool as well, maybe conversation lines with the beggars or the shady looking men to direct players toward XYZ locations. i.e. pay a shady man X amount of coin to get direction to the black market

Park benches around the usual terrace-lurking spots in Quartier Publique would be nice.

What about turning the terrace into an outdoors café?

When I renew my hotel room, the second key possessed by another PC does not also renew.

It has to be in your inventory when you renew.

A vicious ruffian has gone around Quartier Publique knocking signs askew. These are the ones I noticed:

FYI: I've rebalanced the Old Sewers dungeon under Dementlieu; I replaced the much loved oozes with Shaobath's and tweaked the power level of the Thralls.

A suggestion for the bank in Port-a-Lucine:

It always strikes me as odd that the bankers announce your funds for all to hear, particularly since the Dementlieuse consider discussing money openly to be in bad taste. Could the banker conversation be set to private?

Seconding this. Either have it be a private conversation window or an option to write your balance down on a slip of paper. Broadcasting your characters wealth like that is a bit annoying and unrealistic for a banker.

I've been giving this a lot of thought lately, and I believe it would be of great benefit to expand some more of Dementlieu's areas outside of Port-a-Lucine, particularly around the Avenue du Progress.

 As now, it's mostly a straight shot route between Port and Edrigan, and while built very prettily, there's no branching areas off the main road. I think the addition of some side areas branching off the main road, would be of great benefit. They could be as simple as forest clearings, empty caves, secluded ponds, or even abandoned homesteads in the woods, but such would add a lot more interest to the countryside areas of Dementlieu, and would certainly expand the possibilities for RP outside Port-a-Lucine.

Just wanted to say that the Dock Office interior in the Marchand looks very well done since the updates! Nice attention to details!

Somewhat late but this will be implemented for all bank NPCs.
