Anyone Else Have Screen Shots of Old Blessed Magincia Buildings?

    I have wasted quite a bit of time trying to find an old stickied U.Hall thread from late 2007 (?) that included screen shots of blessed buildings in Magincia that the developers promised would be restored at some point. Since that thread seems to have disappeared in the great Stratics crash, I thought maybe we could help out the developers by posting what screen shots anyone might still have of these buildings and structures. I guess if you have something, post the shard and the facet.

    Below are the screenshots I made for Baja.

    Baja - Trammel

    The wedding chapel building survived with a few holes and most, but not all, of the furnishings also seem to have survived.

    Below is a screen shot of a pair of stubborn men on Baja trying to work out their differences. The platform still exists but, sadly, the NPCs are gone. The NPCs date back to before I started playing UO and unfortunately I don't remember both their names. I think one of them was Julius Dryden, but I'm not certain of that. I also don't know who was wearing which costume and the significance of what they might have been wearing. I just know they fought constantly and it seems like they also said some things too. Hopefully someone else remembers more about this pair. They were definitely unique and I hope they can be replaced.

    I'm afraid I don't know what Professor Wright's purpose was, but this is what he looked like and where he was located.

    Baja - Felucca

    This platform and its surroundings seem to be mostly intact. The trees are in bad shape, however and a few other things may be missing or charred.

    The Great Horns Tavern is still present on Pacific/Tram.. There was another building that was used by Ben Khans (the old seer tavernkeeper) right to the North of the bank, but it didn't survive. Id put up a screenie, but not at my UO puter.

    The screen shots I posted above are the copies I saved in Photobucket, so I'm not certain of the exact date I ran around and took those screen shots. (The originals on my computer are long gone.) However, in looking back through the publish notes, I'm guessing that I took those around or slightly before October 15th or 16th, 2007. Hope that helps anyone that might be looking for screen shots they made for the same purpose and maybe also helps someone on the Stratics staff that might be able to do a better search for old threads from before the April-May 2008 Stratics crash.

    Their names are Julius Dryden (Commander of the Partisans of Chaos) and Archimedes the Old (Commander of the Royal Britannian Guard). When EM Vincent left Baja, he put the two longtime rivals there atop the platform in Magincia to work out their differences.

    Julius Dryden actually was teleported by a Void Demon to Cove Graveyard in Trammel. No one knows what became of Archimedes the Old, but some of the same folks who were trying to destroy Magincia somehow managed to get the Balron Berserkers to attack him.

    I wish they were still trying to work out their differences.

    Tell me, is my Mage Tower still standing, or more importantly, the Moongate Maze House ?
