[AoR] Interest in Coffee Professionals?
News & Events
Aph has graciously offered to be our primary coffee professional.
We will soon be adding coffee to the AoR menu.
At the most basic level this involves Myriam selling roasted coffee beans which are put through a grinder. The resulting coffee grounds are then brewed to make a pot of coffee.
If anyone is interested in becoming a Coffee Professional, the coffee production chain would be changed so that Myriam would sell green coffee beans that the professional would roast before grinding and brewing. This Coffee Professional would be responsible for selling their roasted coffee beans, coffee grounds, and brewed coffee.
In either case, regular coffee lovers would still be able to grind and brew their coffee at home.
This could make for an interesting profession which might include the running of a Coffeehouse and, in time, the variety of coffee could be expanded.
You can indicate your interest in this discussion or contact me directly. In the meantime, I'll be working on the basic scenario.
Pizza is now on the menu!
Is it appropriate for the 18th century? You bet! See history of pizza for an overview.
We're starting out with some classics, Pizza Marinara & Pizza Margherita.
As it turns out, even simple pizza has a whole lot of ingredients that had to be added to AoR:
All ingredients are also available from Myriam until such time as our merchants can provide them.
Due to system limitations of six ingredients per recipe you will see that Margherita has been based on Marinara with some additions. This allows for more complex recipes by going through the oven twice.
Tasty samples are available in the Market.
See Recipes for all the details
Pizza Capricciosa (tomato, mushroom, olive) with new ingredients:
Besides providing an overall view of our extended community, I hope this will help us to identify areas that could use more attention. Sere and I tend to do many different tasks, filling in spots as the situation demands. I've left most of that work out rather than cluttering things up.
This list is always going to be very fluid as interests tend to change. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your current information so that I can make regular updates.
As of: November 5, 2021
For the purpose of this list members will be considered to have a trade if they trade/sell products* (either through the Market or directly to individual members) and/or they pay automatic harvest taxes to their community.

As promised , a Soap Maker has been added for our chandlers with five soaps to start with:
All soaps give hygiene. Castile, a level one soap, gives a benefit of 5 hygiene points. The other soaps, all level 2, give 8 hygiene points.
See Recipes - Trades Tab for all the details
In preparation for the introduction of soaps and perfumes the current candles are going to be renamed.
DON'T PANIC this will not affect the operation of any candles currently inworld and the transition for items in your basket will be seamless.
Candle01 will be Beeswax_candle
Candle01or will be Orange_candle
Candle01lv will be Lavender_candle
If you have any questions just holler!
In order to tidy up the Queen's Hamlet Market area and make more space for merchants to sell their wares, Myriam has trained a merchant assistant, Helene. Rather than buying Harvesters (e.g., plants), Crafters (e.g., tools for cooking and wells), and Tools (e.g., personal vendors, labelling tools, and HUDs + Meters) from separate AoR vendors, stroll over to the spot where you used to buy these things and talk to Helene. Her prices are the same as those you are used to paying for the items she sells. You'll notice that a few of the newer AoR items are still for sale individually at her booth.
Please note that there is a 30 second delay from the time Helene sends the item to the time she is ready for a new request. Imagine her running to the stock room and running back (actually it's a LL imposed throttle to prevent spamming).
Here is Helene's current price list for the things she sells:
Carrot patch c: 50 coins/unit
Compost bin c: 50 coins/unit
Hen 01 c: 50 coins/unit
Hen 03 c: 50 coins/unit
Herb pot c: 50 coins/unit

The Queen's Hamlet is delighted to be hosting the first [AoR] Holiday Market on December 4th at 12pm.
This is a perfect opportunity for merchants to show off their exclusive goods, including those that have been customized with personal labels. Holiday gift baskets with an assortment of products may also be popular. All of this is, of course, in addition to the staple merchandise sold on a regular basis.
Please note that vendor space may be limited and will be assigned prior to the event. Merchants should contact TatianaDokuchic Varriale for details and to reserve a spot.
This [AoR] Event is open to everyone. Join us for an hour of shopping, catching up with old friends and making new acquaintances in this relaxed, country atmosphere.
Hope to see you there!
UPDATED TO MESH - October 2021 - Same beautiful furniture with much lower land impact!
This exquisitely detailed jewellery case was designed circa 1855 for Eugénie, last Empress consort of France. The Empress, as you can imagine, had an extensive collection of breathtaking jewellery and this case was the perfect place to store some of it!
In a wonderful example of marquetry, delicate flowers are brought to life with inlaid porcelain & violet wood on a mahogany case. Bronze gilt cherubs provide additional decoration.
The two front doors open to reveal the various sized drawers.
This luxurious piece is equally at home in an old world chateau or modern apartment.
I'm delighted to be offering this updated version of Eugenie's Jewellery Case. Besides reducing the land impact (it's now just 2) I've also made the switch from "Modify/Transfer" to "Modify/Copy" so you can now use it as many times as you please.
For those of you that have an older version purchased inworld, send it to me and I'll give you the updated mesh version. For those of you that have an older version purchased via the SLM you can now get an automatic update.
