    So this is just a preliminary, draft thread announcing the upcoming Luna House Design Contest!!!

    Over the next few months, players ought to buy, trade, or somehow place a house WITHIN THE WALLS of Luna City. Why, you ask??? Because I'm beginning a house design contest for 2015, only applicable to the houses WITHIN Luna city walls.

    The rewards for winners of this house design will be FIFTY MILLION GOLD PIECES!!!!!!!!!

    Did you hear that right??? Yes, you did, FIFTY MILLION GOLD PIECES!!!!!

    The total prizes will be devied out among ALL contestants. 1st prize will get the largest prize, then 2nd, then 3rd, all the way down to last place. Last place will still get a small reward.


    Now I will be developing this thread soon, announcing some other rules and regulations, as well as the intent and purpose of this contest in full.

    Let's make Luna, and also Siege Perilous, the ABSOLUTE BEST shard on UO, no questions asked, no more doubts about it.

    No thanks...never had any interest in living in Luna, then again many of us don't have the assets to make a trade or buy a plot in Luna...so, this is a money for the players with money contest. YAY!!!...la

    Only partially true....

    While Luna plots can be expensive (between 5 mil to 20 mil), it depends on the time of the year. Many times the plots are sold cheaply. The problem is not expense inasmuch lack of interest. Many do not want to live in Luna, as you mentioned. This contest will be an incentive to live here. I mean, all you have to do to earn money is design a home. WOW!!! Nice........

    It's easy.

    Basically Luna is the first area new players to the shard explore. If a new player comes and sees Luna populated, good vendors, PKers spilling blood in the street, nice houses, then they will love to stay. And they will receive a great first impression of Siege. Especially if they're cut down during their first visit........ *Thumbs up!*

    Let's turn the streets of Luna crimson with blood, amid a background of golden walls and beautiful rooftops.


    Now is the time to move to Luna for anybody reluctant to do so.

    However, I will mention a problem. A lot of houses inside Luna are unoccupied and abandoned. We need a way to pull these houses down, cause them to go IDOC. There has to be a way to do this, to cause some houses to collapse if not regularly maintained. I'm going to start a petition to the game developers or GMs or EMs, to do this kind of thing, for Luna only.

    Don't hold your breath. The developers are not going to code in basically what ends up being zoning ordinances. They put in custom home design as an option. Some players may not like your design...should they have the right to "pull it down"? Nope.

    While I like the idea of freshening Luna up, I don't like the idea of bringing PvP back to Luna. PvP should either be in towns (factions/VvV) or out in the wild.

    Not sure if you were around during the days when Luna was active, but it used to be a bunch of house fighting and guard zone hugging.

    As a thief and looter it was great since it concentrated the fights (players) close to a healer and bank, but the fighting part was pretty pitiful...la

    Good luck with your project Apollyon, I hope you will success it. I too dislike Luna, not sure why it draw more evil players than Zento, both towns are builded with player houses around the town center. I hope the players who go for the price will stay on Siege and not just place and build the house and then trade the mills back to their old shard and leave a ghost house, that will stay forever.

    You are welcome to create your own Thief town elsewhere.

    As of now, this contest will shift and change Luna accordingly. And it will help the shard overall as a whole as well. I wish you luck, on your ideals, to create a thief community elsewhere.


    May the streets of Luna flow red with crimson blood!!!

    Huh? Where did I suggest that?

    In regards to Luna PvP...I guess you'll just ignore the fact that the shard has "been there, done that". And for the most part it sucked.

    That being said, I certainly wish you luck in your beautification project. I'm sure some of the residents will play...just don't be upset when the streets of Luna stay the dusty color they are now and have been since I returned...la

    This thread is not for naysaying and doubters: "Luna will remain shabby", "People will play the contest and leave".

    You guys are haters. Be positive. Don't leave negative remarks. I know this is too much to ask, but think about it. I'm only doing something positive here. You guys won't allow this.

    If you want to do something different for the shard, then do so, on another thread, in your own way. Luna is mine. And it will become the most glorious beacon and spectacle to the shard that ultima online has ever seen.....do you understand??? You can't stop me. You can try, but, you'll fail.

    Do you want 50 million gold pieces, or not??? No??? Go away then.


    I'm bribing people to have fun, create things, improve the shard. LOL!!!!!!!! What can the haters do???

    Dude, at the risk of starting another 50+ post argument, please cease with the whole anti Freja campaign. You have personal problems with her, so be it. I'm just tired of reading it. I've hardly interacted with either of you, but based on her posts and yours, I STRONGLY feel that you are just not letting something go here. No one in their right mind would interpret her previous post as devious. Come on man, don't hijack YOUR OWN THREAD and make it about something other than your event.

    And you call others "full of themselves"? HA!

    I see nobody saying we want you to stop...just throwing a bit of reality into the discussion. Call me a hater if you'd like, but I'm far from it...I'm a realist...la

    Why don't you take your pinky out of Freja's pocket?????????

    She's the one who suggested, FIRST, that people would abuse this contest to take gold back to their own shards...!!!! SHE IS TO BLAME HERE. She is guilty for this stupid, idiotic, malicious suggestion. She should keep her mouth shut. I mean, who would possibly get that idea into their heads, without Freja mentioning it????? And within the first several responses???? It's sabotage. That's the exact type of thing I'm talking about with Freja. She pretends to be all "goody two shoes" with her underhanded, conniving, stupid suggestions. She doesn't care about me or "helping" this contest.


    So what if a person designs a house in luna and takes the gold back to their own shard?!??!?!? Good for them!!! It's still good for Luna and Siege, because the nice house designs will be attractive and welcoming to other new players.

    *whacks Apollyon upside the head with her frying pan* Bud I think its time you quit calling others names. If I must I will paint every wall of Luna pink with glitter just to torment everyone.

    So nobody is here to actually comment something positive and be enthusiastic about this contest???

    Cool.....what else could I expect from the Veteran Siege Perilous community???????

    Of course, I had no expectations. The contest moves forward WITH OR WITHOUT!!! The train is leaving the station, ALL ABOARD!

    Regardless of my classification. I think your original idea to rebuild Luna is with good intentions and I hope it is successful. I do believe, taking the high road in your responses and only focusing on the event will serve the effort better. ;) Silent Singer offered some sound advise. You can always do the board battles in another post. Make it about the event.

    It would be nice to see the slums of Luna get a facelift. So good luck.

    The fact that anyone cares about this, after you've called half of the vets asses that run people off the shard, amazes me. I"m not even sure why I responded, so I'm going to pretend that I didn't.

    That is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FALSE!!!

    I called 49% of vets asses. The other 51% is awesome. It's a delicate balance between good and evil.

    Besides, this contest is open for ALL, n00b or vet alike.

    @Apollyon it is not the idea that people are reacting negatively to. It is your usual not so charming attitude.

    So there are many plots available now for several people to enter into the Luna House Design contest. Tazar has offered me a few of his plots to "put to good use". He is dealing with very big life circumstances, so wish him the best and be very thankful he is willing to donate his luna plots to a good and righteous cause. The opportunity to join the contest is NOW!!! Right now. If you don't already own property inside Luna City Walls, then right now is your best chance, before the contest officially commences.

    Get ahold of me (apollyon) in game or through ICQ.

    Psst, you don't need all caps, large and colorful fonts to attract people to your contest. Just make it a contest players would actually want to take part of :) ...la

    Nobody has claimed the couple of free plots in Luna for the contest. So I will take that it's just about time to formally accept some contestants. I will pick a due date for contest entries soon and create the official thread.

    Only entered contestants will have chance to win the contest rewards.

    Luna is just to suburban for a lot of folks. I couldn't live in a house there. That being said, good luck with the contest.
