PostSubject: How to own a business   Wed Jan 18, 2012 1:12 am

So, a few players already own a company in game and so I wanted to put up the rules for doing so in this game.

To own a business is very easy (Well mechanically speaking anyways.) what you need to do is buy up the status (business) merit. The size of your company is dependent on your dots in the status (business) merit.

* A small business run out of your home by yourself
** A business run out of a small building by yourself and with maybe 1 employee
*** A business run out of a small building with a few employees.
**** A larger business that has a large headquarters and many employees. know to folks across the region.
***** A large business with a few locations in the region with many employees. Know to folks across the country.

You may own multiple businesses, and need to maintain them in separate merits.
Example:

Patrick Boston owns a small magazine publication that runs out of an office down town and he has a few employees how help him edit the magazine. Boston publishing is a *** sized company

He also owns a printing press where he print the magazine himself, and occasional will print other things on the side like occupy protest signs. This is however a small operation and thus is a ** sized company

There are certain benefits to owning businesses. Depending on what kind of company you own the benefits differ.
Examples:

Forest Reinheart owns a dog kennel. Not only will his *** sized business earn him some money on the side, he now also has a great place to keep his guard dogs that he uses for his animalism.

Godric owns a shooting range. his small ** sized business doesn't make him a lot of money but now when he orders ammunition by the pallet, the ATF doesn't put him on a watch list...

If you own a larger business (Size **** or *****) it may require you spend a DTA to make sure your company remains well managed. Also, some businesses may be hard for a Kindred to operate. If your business requires you to make public appearance in the middle of the day, you might want to reconsider your company choice.

Like any rule, if you need this clarified by a staff member either ask a question on the FAQ thread or PM your character manager.

Is status business enough to procure things, or do you need resources as well?

It's understood that when using XP to set up a company, it come with the materials and equipment needed to run that business. Pat Boston does not need to spend monthly resources on ink for his printing press. However, if you start digging into your companies assets for your own means, it may start to harm your companies performance. (Exsamples of your company being hurt to follow) If godric started to dip into his shooting ranges ammo cache, he will start to lose business as he has less product to sell. However, godric could make it a note to use his business a simple front and use extra resources to buy ammo for a private cache.

Exsamples of your company being hurt by a character dipping into it's assets would be something like this:

To make money for his cocaine addiction Pat Boston sells off one of his printing presses. Although it nets him some sort term resources, he now prints far less magazines than he used to.

If you had something like a ***** sized business, complete with a board of directors, and you damaged the company for your own personal ends, they may even vote you off the board and you would have less control over the company, and would have to spend DTAs to get back into their good graces.
