Do you really think it is a good idea to exclude walls in Salem?
Judging from HnH this will cause a lot of grief.
We were stolen from, threatened and even killed several times until we had our walls up and lost 3 players (the killed ones) in the process, because they didn't see a point in playing inf anything you do can be undone by anyone.
Sure, all those crimes left a lot of scent, but what did that do for us?
Most raiding parties have no base, they just travel through the world ans raze villages.
Leaving no protection at all is kind of.. hard. It is also in your interest, why should someone pay money for a cow or something valuable, if anyone could take it from you at any time. Especially when you are offline.
