Doll Trading

edited June 2013 in Ideas
With the advent of dolls in presents, it has become quite common to possess dolls that are, perhaps, not quite what one would have selected for themselves.  At the same time, given their rarity it's kind of a shame to trade them in for dingbats, especially when other people would be interested in said dolls.

Having the ability to trade dolls to other people (in exchange for a doll of theirs) would help this out considerably.

For example, I could trade this doll:
"doll168648"              a plush doll of Princess Marilynth

to Azula for a doll of Glumki, which would leave us both feeling quite pleased with the situation.

    I actually have a Glumki doll, and would love to trade it for something a bit more Mork-ish.

    I have Glumki and Shimotabi dolls I'd love to trade for at least a Japhiel and something else.

    I'd love to be able to trade dolls as well, with other people who'd appreciate certain ones more.

    I'd love the Wyrdling, I'd love the Necromentate not for RP reasons but because it's the funniest one of the lot.

    I've got Glumki and Cirik.

    I love that dolls are in presents. I've got the Necromentate and Alteira, who are awesome and interact, and the Diamond Generator which can be tossed in the Eternal Flame at regular intervals.

    If I could've traded my doll to someone for another rather than just trading it in for dingbats, I would've done.

    Xenthos, you still haven't customised your Rowena doll to be headless and your doll's head bubblix to be Rowena's head. Why is this not yet a thing.
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,896 Transcendent
    I haven't gotten around to writing the descriptions yet, primarily.

    Why can I not dislike. I may only like, agree, or disagree. I wish to dislike :(
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,896 Transcendent
    Noooooo. :(

    I'll get around to it someday, I promise!

    I'll even manage to customize the bardiches too!

    (I tend to do really poorly at customization, alas)

    I just got Miakoda the doll. If I could trade it for something less Serenwildey, you would be making this lizard very happy.

    Just think, you can stab and abuse them.

    Hmm. What if we take dolls off the dingbat market and make them into curios (their own 'type')? That way you can collect and trade them.

    I rather like the simplicity of - if I want a doll I can just buy it fairly cheap myself.

    Having to go deal with curios to get dolls means I likely wouldn't bother.

  • TacitaTacita <3s Xynthin 4eva!!!11 Member Posts: 789 Transcendent
    No, please. I like that you buy them with dingbats and that they're cycled round and so forth. Not everything needs to be a curio.
  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,896 Transcendent
    I would prefer that they remain their own thing (dolls), just with a trade command added.

    Curios have a rather different meaning and purpose at this point, it would be a bit of a shame to slam the two together.

    Not just that, but every new curio added makes it drastically more difficult to complete *any* curio (you're going to be getting an email on this subject after New Year's, with some ideas for ameliorating the issue), so, please, hold off on turning more things into curios!

    What about turning them into completed curios, so you can trade them, and still selling them as complete curios for dingbats. Basically just changing the type to allow trading without extra coding?

    I would love the ability to trade off the random dolls I receive. I have the Ebonglom Wyrdling....So not my style. Gross little bugger.

  • XenthosXenthos Shadow Lord Member Posts: 5,896 Transcendent
    The Ebonglom Wyrdling is one of the lamest dolls out there; it is on the level of the generators.

    Actually I got one of the generators, it was pretty awesome, till it tried to vent poisonous gas at me.

    I've got the Diamond Generator. I don't really see much point though! I didn't know I could trade it in for dingbats, but now I think I might and see if I can get something a little more useful.

    a plush doll of Lord Lyreth, the Sidereal Prince

    a plush doll of Princess Marilynth

    a plush doll of Rowena Nightshade

    a plush doll of Selene, the First of the Mothers


    Those be the dolls Kagato currently has. No disrespect meant to Serenwilde or Glomdoring, but I'd love the option to trade off my White Hart, Rowena or Selene dolls =p


    Also: When is Terentia going to design a doll? T_T I want to collect all 3 of the Celest Divine plushies! /derail
