    I don't know if anyone remembers my old rune library. It was called BSL Rune Library. It closed about 4 to 5 year ago. It was located between east brit, and the swamp if you followed the road. In it's time, it was one of the largest on the shard.

    When I made my return to UO about a year back, I found that a lot of my runes had become blocked because of landscape changes. I have been toying with the idea of opening another rune library. But I'd basically have to start from scratch again. Before I go though all the effort and trouble of finding a suitable location, remarking runes, and actually setting up, I wanted to ask if the Catskills population thinks we have need for another library. I don't do anything half-way, so I would again try to gather as many runes as I could possibly get my grubby little hands on. So we're not talking about a small undertaking here. What do you guys and gals think? Comments/Ideas would be much appreciated.

    It is a very nice offer on your part to make a new Rune Library for the players on Catskills to use. Though there are some fine ones already out there, I am sure people like having a choice as to what one they want to use. Besides you may have some runes to places that other people may not of thought of making before, and I enjoy going to new or different places. Good luck with this endeavor.

    Quite honestly, there are enough rune libraries out there that if you made another one, I would probably never use it myself unless it had something else to draw my attention. The RAA vendor house on Europa stands out as an example of a good draw. They have everything a growing character needs in the vendors (and I KNOW you run a good vendor house), and the rune library, though small, has a lot of very useful runes. And it's nowhere close to anywhere people would normally go.

    Come to think of that, the old travel lodge rune library had a similar draw, just slightly more high-end on the vendors (and the prices for the most part), which is why I used it for quite a bit. I always bought my acid proof ropes and bone machetes from there, since I was passing through anyway on my way to Paroxy or Mel.

    After thinking it over, and finding out today that I will be working 10 - 12 hour days for awhile I have decided not to re-open my library. I'm thinking maybe I'll just set up a few select books at my vendor house. Thanks for the input everyone.
