What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
Just the idea of putting up a job board e.g corkboad, whiteboard... whiteboard would probably be the best for my idea in mind...

You would use a pen and put up the names of job titles picked from a list such as scavenging, recon, hunting, construction, repair, watch duty, designated supply run, ally/base protection etc... People would either be assigned/sign up to-do one from the list (depends how your group plays and more than one person could fill a position). People that would be doing these at pre-set times by the assignee/volunteer would get extra exp and mental boost.

Promotes teamwork/co-ordination for those that do and don't need structure within a game.

Reason I thought whiteboard is it's probably easier from a design stand-point... name/job title changes are easy as wiping them away then...

this [would seem to] rely on .....

a [some what] secure trading system ..... or

npcs ..... or

a land 'owner / renter' system (think minecraft mods like 'kingdoms', 'towny', etc)

Depends how far this idea should go... I am just thinking of having this in the world as an optional thing to have within your safehouse/base more than something required to play and have fun... more a decoration with a purpose :).

Having one might make a whole group and individuals within that group feel better because it's like having some control over your days and if a person is to safe-log back in, they could check it to see what needs doing...

The people to use these would most likely be organized groups so maybe a group using it would gain a higher moral boost than those just wandering around "winging it"... not sure on that...

I don't think a safe trading system is needed... just depends on if risk will be taken and not removed when trading... if doing a trade while that's your "job" (and you live) then the boost would be granted... I am guessing some-kind of trading will be in whether it's within a traditional menu or you mark items for trade to [Insert player/group] so when dropped and picked up by [insert player/group] it's classed as a trade... something will be worked out...

The idea just popped up to discuss with y'all, if they end up shit then move on to the next... that's cool with me :D
