Cash shop addition: Bathroom furniture/objects


15 posts in this topic

Posted

Whether they are cash shop items or in game items (preferable a mixture of both), I would really like to have some bathroom furniture. 

People did have bathtubs before the age of plumbing. Buckets of water also existed. 

This RPer would like my character to bathe somewhere other than a river pretty please!

My dollars will be waiting.

Stripper pole, baking kiln, television/projector, meth lab too. But seriously, I'm pretty sure they didn't have bathrooms just holes in the floor or took a dump in the forest considering the fake time period this game is set in. It's also possible that this is the land Kim Jung Un is from where people have no buttholes and don't use the bathroom. 

They probably had some kind of tub with a fire underneath though for taking baths. Also, public baths and hot springs please.

I don't know how I feel about toilets, but I agree that some bathroom type furniture might be a lovely addition to a home. In the Medieval times they didn't bathe because they thought it was bad for their health. However, that doesn't mean that the world of BDO couldn't have Bathing type furnishings. I found some examples that might look good within the game.

^ yep right there. That makes sense. There's no indoor plumbing so toilets aren't a thing. No running water, no steam power, no electricity... hot springs should provide maybe some kind of buff or something. Maybe pay to enter or discover a hidden hot spring?

You're confusing North Korea with South Korea.  Please L2geography

That was primarily a Western European superstition, brought on by the cool & humid climate.  The Greeks & Romans had luxurious bath houses in their time :D

 

The origins of the Japanese sentō and the Japanese bathing culture in general can be traced to the Buddhist temples in India, from where it spread to China, and finally to Japan during the Nara period (710–784) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sent%C5%8D#History]

Oh, I know that the Romans loved their baths. They had a wonderful water system and even had running water to some degree. Bathhouses were social occupations and they had cold and hot baths. There are some really beautiful ruins of Roman bathhouses with mosaics intact and a few other places they have been able to reconstruct what they probably would have looked like. However, much of that was lost during the middle ages aka dark ages. Most of the knowledge was forgotten between the classical era and the Renaissance. They even started to take the stones out of the aqueducts and the coliseum in order to build other buildings. :/

I didn't know that about the Japanese though. All the bathhouses I've ever seen related to japan has been in anime or manga. >,< I believe that there are places in the Middle East that had bathhouses, too, but I really don't know as much about them. All I know is, that much like the Romans, they used bathhouses as one of the places they used to conduct business and make deals.

"Documented early plumbing systems for bathing go back as far as around 3300 BC with the discovery of copper water pipes beneath a palace in the Indus Valley Civilization of ancient India; see sanitation of the Indus Valley Civilization. Evidence of the earliest surviving personal sized bath tub was found on the Isle of Crete where a 1.5-metre (5 ft) long pedestal tub was found built from hardened pottery."

I am not asking for indoor plumbing, which predated medieval times by centuries anyway. 

Medieval Europe did have sewage systems. People would empty their buckets and waste onto the surface street sewage systems before the closed sewage systems came about in 1370. 

We have guns, gunpowder, cannons, etc. Siege guns were used by the English in the 1300s. So, it is safe to assume that we are not breaking any "historical accuracy" by including standalone tubs without plumbing.

I am asking for a simple bathtub and something like a water filled basin/ bucket with a washcloth. I see no reason why someone living in Calpheon's noble district could not have a bathtub. 

Extra points to DAUM if we can purchase models with WATER in them.

Homer's description of Circe's servants preparing a bath for Odysseus: "the fourth maid fetched water and lit up a great fire under the big cauldron so that the water grew warm. When the bright copper was boiling, she sat me down in a bath and washed me with water from the great cauldron mixed with cold to a comfortable heat, sluicing my head and my shoulders until all the painful weariness was gone from my limbs. My bath done, she rubbed me with olive oil, clothed me in a tunic and a splendid robe and conducted me to the hall, where she seated me in a beautiful chair with silver decorations and a footstool below"

You know...when I woke up this morning, and was doing my morning business...it dawned on me that I've never had to take my character to the bathroom...and wondered what in the world....no wonder my wizard looks so old and cranky.

This needs to be addressed asap!
