I think it would be hardly any better than an in game warning system. besides, out of all those using the forums, most use the "show unread posts since" which is fine for shop updates, much less for finding relevant informations such as specific threads.

Problem is, people in game hardly look at the forums.

I have thought about it a couple of times, stuff like a "shop chime" that shouts on chat when it opens, or a beacon. I believe that would serve shopkeepers better than a post on the forum.

At any given time I can usually count about 20 unique users online on the forums. If I were to count the number of unique user posts over the span of a week (which I'm not willing to do) I'd guess that's somewhere in the 50+ range.  The forums are used quite frequently and are a major source of information for players. 

In terms of the reasonability of the above mentioned request, this is far easier to implement than anything that happens IG. It's simply a QOL adjustment that takes very little effort on the part of the forum moderators.  I'm not sure there's any argument to be made here.

My point is, out of those people, how many are in game at the same time, and refreshing the forum as well? I think they are not that many.

EDIT besides, it's not as different as the churches' bells in their effect, with the notable difference that here only the owners can fire the script.

I'm personally a big fan of someway to have an invisible helmet.  Character visuals are a big part of their narrative.  Van Richten isn't as cool wearing a hood when it isn't part of the story.  Same vein as Mando with his helmet being important to his narrative.

I think it opens up more narrative options.

I wonder if this has been taken into consideration.
the main problem is that helmets change your face, so if you want to change a hood (cloth) in a hat (cloth) you cant unless you use the tricorn usable item. this wont do for crafted items, such a performance boosting hood for performers that hide your face. So as a workaround, if i have to change my cloak for a hat that leaves the face visible, i should be able to change my hood for something else, or make it invisible.

On this note, I just recently discovered the possibility to change your neck piece into necklaces among other things (such as cloaks...) could it be possible to have the holy symbols reproduced as medallions?

Some way of setting down an area description/flavor text trigger in rentals.
It is not an ending, but an ebbing.

Can we have a special tag for singing so that when someone sings their speech comes out formatted in a recognizable way? so every line after, dunno, /z comes in italics, and or bolded, and or colored?

There is already something that does that. If you start with <c> the line will be a purple color. Though it does make it look strange while you are typing, sometimes hiding part of the pending text. It shows up right when you hit enter, though.

I have been told about it. I was wondering if there could have been something specific as an emote, so when a character goes with, for example, @emote 22 their speech comes out flaired in color? the knowledge of the <c> code is not reported anywhere in the command list and is quite esoteric, so i thought of automating it linking it to the instrument or emote

Just an idea that popped into my head, but maybe allow the Kinship Fireplace in the Kinship Lodge the ability to be put out or on, and to be able to burn papers in it like a traditional fire? I feel it may be more immersive.

Burning documents in the fireplace would be great. While we're on the subject of the WFK Lodge, another thing I'd love to see is a doorbell. We've seen them added steadily to more and more buildings, could we have one too?

I wonder if there is a possibility to link a disguise to a specific piece of wearable, so that each time you put it on or off the disguise goes on and off as well.

In my mind (which contains no knowledge of scripting at all) it could work with the targeting tool and work a bit like the labeling of containers.

Could we have Disguise Self potions added to the module?  Perhaps we can take an existing herb that spawns frequently, such as Belladonna, for these?

A way for the rental's owner to assign rights to other PCs (rental key holders) for them to be able to edit/furnish the rental.

That's not a bad idea. Will at least be considered.

For tailoring/weaving:

The addition of "Steel Threads" that gives 1 full AC on similar to Misty Threading does, but as a common alternative. 

Hoods/Capes = 1 deflection AC, 3 enchanted
Robes = 1 armor AC, 3 enchanted

That will be a flat no here. Metal threads are obtained with ductile metals, IE gilding metals.

There is already a straight +1 AC option for robes that isn't particularly hard to obtain (Ogre beards). Though that may require certain areas to stop being over farmed as they are. But I won't act to change that as I purposefully designed it this way. The focus of tailoring is utilitarian clothings as in skill bonuses, with some combat oriented bonus through the exotic thread, it is not to replace armors. It is a balancing point that keeps the bonus to +1 vs blunt only on hoods and cloaks. You have three other sources of +1 AC threads, one of which is even readily abundant. Granted it requires you to live dangerously and/or get help to acquire it. Again as intended. We like cooperative play.

I know it's in the sourcebook to trigger on combat but triggering them by a button would be much, much better. I don't particular want my fighter to burn them fighting creatures like rats.

Could this placeable be retextured so it's less silly? Especially the dragon mug, the book isn't that bad.

Crafting tools that drop on the loot table that give minor bonuses to crafts.

A +1 Smith's Hammer gives a +1 bonus to Smithing
A +1 Tailor's Kit gives a +1 bonus to Tailoring

Ect.

Maybe a +2 or +3 bonus at the best, but even a +1 would be negligible and just nifty to have.
