I have recently been working out a system to allow players to 'buy' new camps with some control over what they get. It's important that this isn't unfair to existing camp owners who had little or no choice..

1. You provide approximate requirement - location, size.
2. Assuming what you're looking for is "reasonable" (i.e. not out of whack with other camps in the same region), then the Rules Council decides on a "Survey Fee" (I won't tell them who the requester is) which you pay
3. I create the camp map and define the base-level fame and defensiveness rating. The camp goes to auction with a starting price decided by the RC.

After we have done this a few times I should be able to reverse engineer some formulae for the survey fee and auction start price (there's several variables that determine this, of course..) so it will not need the RC's intervention any more.

The survey fee is mostly to stop people from requesting a camp, then letting others bid on it, then requesting another camp and buying it at the opening price.

Current RC members are not allowed to request camps. (They can bid on them though).
