    Imports/Exports/Deliverance From Debt

    [IN CHARACTER INFORMATION]
    - - - Gochni Investments and Imports was originally established in the form of The Gochni Imperial Shipping and Postal Guild which dabbled in importing various goods with the aid of House Black, Doctor Fong and House Viddulga, along with providing a courier service to the inhabitants of Regalia and its colonies. However, after the retirement of its main economic driving force, Gochnipunchni, the company fell into disarray, contracts were lost, ships sunk, and overseas enterprises died where they stood. However, after almost five years of blissful retirement, Gochnipunchni is back, determined to revitalize his dying business. The Gochni Imperial Shipping and Postal Guild was rebranded, its old employees rehired, and operations resurrected. Into a whole new streamlined business, one based not around postal service, which had razor thin profit margins, but around investment opportunities and exploring the importation of exotic goods, like Ithanian Wine, Shademarsh Mushrooms, and even various Qadir Clockworks!
    - - - The company now offers investments into local Regalian businesses with high interest regal injections and hopefully decent returns, along with procurement of exotic goods (facilitated through IC deals with a large network of player character sea captains!) **Note: We have also recently delved into the procuring of exotic animals as well, inquire through DMs or ICly!**
    - - - While still recovering from the economic disaster wreaked upon it, it is slowly gaining ground, establishing new contracts along with rebuilding old ones, both through ethical means, and questionable sourcing strategies. Most of these contracts are fulfilled through the Brass Moor Company, who act as shipping proxies and provide defense to otherwise unarmed merchant vessels.

    [​IMG]
    [OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION]
    - - - This is a B2B (Business to business) company dedicated to offering more realistic sources of the goods that In Character businesses often sell (eg. the way a brewery might sell ale or a smith might sell iron armor without having an in-character location for where they actually got those raw materials for it.) Essentially for the purpose of making Massive a more realistic and immersive environment. The actual sourcing of those materials is primarily achieved through partnership with players who own ships, or through Crime channels if they are particularly rare, or easier to obtain illegally (Shademarsh mushrooms, Casilleroablo, etc.)
    - - - It also offers a new source of Naval Roleplay for players who captain a ship, which is a type of roleplay that often doesn't get to see the light of day, meaning there is a whole untapped playerbase of people who "just have ships sitting in the harbor" and don't get any use out of them.
    - - - In the same vein of Naval Roleplay, it also gives the opportunity for Business Roleplay from a perspective that isn't always Workers talking to Customers. It lets you think about your business three-dimensionally. It also gives the opportunity to roleplay being in a mid-level business struggling to keep its head above water, which is another situation that tends to just.. not exist on Massive. Businesses are either booming successes or they just slowly fade off, without a healthy medium. We aim to offer that opportunity for players wishing to explore that particular concept.

    Sorry I haven't been as active lately, I've finally discovered the wonders of 3$ indie games on Steam, but in the meantime, I've got quite a few long term contracts brewing, starting with a printing deal for our newly acquired printing press for the Storm Sentinels!

    And some other news, we've just entered into a (hopefully long-term) business contract with The Octavin's Grotto's manager, a Mr.. "Θυλαίος Μικαλάδης".. Which I'm pretty sure means the delightful Thyolaeus Mikaladis! (@Clewii ) Welcome aboard!

    A return letter arrives on your doorstep, sealed with a thick green wax seal stamped firmly with the image of a mushroom. The letter reads..
    Dearest Mister Aurum

    How fortuitous! I was just passing by your store today and thinking about dropping by, but it was rather busy. Congratulations on the thriving opening, and I hope that sort of enthusiasm from your customers stays around for a long while!
    Now as for those alchemy ingredients, I’d be happy to provide them, especially considering the fact that a new stock just came in yesterday. Send me a return letter (message me on discord @Avant-Garded or PM me on the forums) and we can discuss a price.
    Yours in Delighted Rapture

    Question for you: Do you see the company primarily as a shipping company, or more like a form of wholesaler?

    After 10 minutes of frantically googling what a wholesaler is..

    I guess a weird combination of the two, since we don’t actually own any of the supplies we’re transporting, it’s just us transporting their supplies since it’s an order-by-order basis.
    But at the same time, we sell such a wide variety of random junk to so many people, it might actually be a better idea to adopt more of a wholesaler business model. It would certainly cut down on tariffs at least.

    A Letter to Gochnipunchni

    To the esteemed Gochnipunchni

    Your reputation precedes you. As a recent arrival in Regalia, I am actively looking for employment to keep myself busy in these unsettling times. One cannot simply spend all their time holed up in a tavern. You will find my resume enclosed in this letter and I do hope you would consider me as a useful asset to the company.

    Spirit bless,
    Guy Luis Villarreal of House Pileran
    {insert strong resume here.}
