Ripper Street is no ordinary co-op. It was born in ignorance, built through friendship and now prospers through dedication. Born in ignorance because as newbie I founded it, not knowing what a co-op entails. Built through friendship because the incredible, awesome S and A Farms saw my post here on the forum, asked her co-op leader, Artful (from the Hearts of Gold co-op), if she could come visit Ripper Street co-op to help me, stayed for a few glorious weeks and helped build this tiny new co-op. Prospers through dedication because after S and A Farms left, it wasn't long before she decided to come and make Ripper Street co-op her co-op home. And others have joined: WarChild was one of the first, then Shy, who became our second Deputy with S and A Farms. Several came and went as their dots turned red, but some came and stayed and play their hearts out. Becky, billys bench, Sunnydale, Catparade, Sunni, Bamachile, Frogjump, Grammma4, Christy Herron, sam and our very own superman, theclarkkent. This little group of amazing players have stepped up time after time and played like champions. The crowning achievement is our magnificent performance in the just completed Village Fair of January 2020, where in the gold division we took a well deserved win. We may not have a bunch of high level players, and we are not gold buyers, but Ripper Street has heart! So if this is the kind of co-op you are looking for, come and visit us! We make few demands and appreciate all you can give and help with. We have a lively chat and value communication. We are made up of young and old, and yes, we even take "baby farms" of those wanting to be regular players ready to learn how to work in a team. We never ask for gold. We respect each other... we seek to be friends. We are eager to help anyone interested in joining, and your input will be valued too, as we are steadily working on our research and village upgrades. We have both factories close to L20, a pond filled with fish, our Jetty at L1, as well as our horse meadow. We share in prizes often as we manage to play well in all the events, and we do projects regularly and on a schedule. So come and see if Ripper Street will be your forever co-op home!
