[Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

No, I'm not talking about Mail Order Brides.

But there are some people who want to Insurance of having a Wife. But their wife has already died.

Maybe an Option to buy (Spend Money to woo... whatever) a new wife for an absurd amount of money?
This would give you something else to do with all your money when you become rich, along with the fact that most Rich people will have to change their current House to allow for a Wife (Most of the Richest people have no family... Reminds me of Scrooge McDuck)

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

Personally I always make sure my wife is well protected by something like 10 dogs all line up in a very long hallway with many corner. wink

But if someone equipped like rambo come in and kill her... Yes i would like to be able to buy another one.

buying a new wife is as simple as checking a box and clicking a button!

Seriously though, it would allow End Game users to have something to do with their money.

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

we had this discussion a long time ago, however rather than kidnapping i think the suggestion was a 'love potion.' a little less.. evil. gives them a reason to want to stay and defend your money, at least.

although.. i wonder.. holding family hostage......

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

Ooo, that maybe a good idea - Rescue Attempts, if you kidnap the wife   xD
It'd give another layer to the game, if you could Kidnap someones wife instead of killing.
Then put them in your Dungeon, without the need to escape - Is tied up instead, and the robber has to save them for a finders fee?

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

Lmao - Two different ideas on this thread currently -

One : Wooing (Buying) a New Wife.  (Yes to Guns)

Two : Kidnap / Rescue of Wives. (lmao, no, we'd not want them to have Guns)

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

my hostage idea was more just keeping the partner tied up in a room somewhere, no clear path needed. no gun. but maybe they continue to hold any money they had in their pockets when they were kidnapped, and that is used as the reward for anyone who finds frees them and then reaches the vault/exits the house successfully.

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

well. take a live hostage for no immediate financial gain as a way to lure people in versus quick murder and instant $30,000~ cash injection.

not sure how many people here would bother with the old hostage approach! it'd be a nice additional usage for the brick, at least big_smile

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

Oh wow that kidnap/hostage idea is great!
If you kidnap someone's wife the name turns red in the list to show you who took her.
If you rob a house with hostages you have 2 options:
1) The option to release the hostage back to the husband, the wife shows up in the house at the entrance and the rescuer's house shows green in the list.
2) The option to keep the newly "rescued" wife as a hostage yourself, then your house shows red.

Anyone that dies while having hostages releases them (as the police raid the house after retrieving the dead body).
Maybe have a reward system so you can enter the rescuers house, click a tickbox "reward" and enter an amount. Then you leave the house and the funds are transferred.

This would be a really cool mechanic as people would end up having rooms full of hostages.

If I vanish it's not due to a burglar shooting me as well as my wife while making his way to the vault....
I'm just a burst player.

I think this would be a completely different game mode. Seems interesting haha

Re: [Suggestion] Buying a new Wife?

rather than allowing a player to just fix their wife why not put it in the robbers hands by adding chloroform to the game to knock out family members without killing them (like drugged meet for pit-bulls). would let you knock out and rob an unarmed wife for less than a gun but if she is armed you are screwed.
