With all the negativity, not just here in the Republic, but the world as a whole, I wanted to make a post that was just positives. Also, I don’t want to get political as this is about the Republic so I will simply say my heart goes out to anyone affected by the conflict in Ukraine, any Sarmatians who need assistance please reach out, I’ll do anything I can to assist. The things that I’m working on that will provide a positive impact for every member here regardless of who they are, where they are, etc. I want to detail some of the things I will be doing for the Republic with my own time and money going forward regardless of what positions I hold or will hold. I hope this will serve as an inspiration on some other citizens bringing in their own ideas and executing them, as this is what the Republic is all about.
I have recently ordered a 3D printer that recently arrived. I’ve been working on some prototypes for us that we can print, including things like custom RR coins, RR and collegium medallions, RR lararium statues, possible wax stamps, and more! This is a completely open project, anyone is welcome to submit their own ideas and I’ll do my best to make them reality. This is hopefully a first move to establishing a marketplace where denarii can be used to discount widely available products and for denarii only, for those who are dedicated and wish to save can have custom items made for denarii only! I will personally pay for the shipping and will work with you to create whatever custom item you want, depending on denarii price it could be anything from a custom coin to a statue! I want peoples efforts here to feel rewarded, even if it’s at my own personal cost. Every object will have several options for print color including gold, bronze, and marble. For custom denarii only orders, a custom color may be chosen if it exists in PLA, the 3D printers printing material.
My long term goal will be to use the 3D printer to create molds for metal casting, but sadly we’re just not in a place where this is possible at the moment. But 3D printing makes it much easier, as anything made now for 3D printing can easily be turned into a mold later for metal casting when we have the resources to do so. Please provide any ideas you, the citizens have. This project will remain open for the entirety of it’s existence and as we move forward the products that we begin to produce will in large be chosen by you, the citizens. I have many more ideas to help revitalize the Republic, but as we move forward it’s clear to me we won’t escape this crisis without hope. A lot of people seem to have lost hope for the magistrate system, but I fully believe it will work and this Republic will thrive. We have gotten through worse and we will get through this much stronger than we came into it. This gives us a chance to identify core issues and solve them. I don’t feel we will waste the opportunity given to us.
