I introduce a very useful and decent shop on shards in Japan to you all. The name of the shop is "Twins". Twins are located on the edge of Zento of all 7 normal shards in Japan except Mugen. There are two shops on Hokuto. Eight shops in total. Note: English is not available. If you speak to the owner of the shop or post a message on Bulletin board there in English, you can't expect to be replied. Note 2: Hokuto2 will be closed from 1 Sep. to 10 Oct. for renovation. Access to Twins It sells almost all things necessary for playing UO. Twins: Location on Asuka( as for the location on other shards, see "Access to Twins" above): A banner of "Shop & Town Award Wnner" is a landmark for Twins. (*) EA Japan UO team gives an award of "Shop & Town Award" to a player-run shop that contributes most to UO communitiy in Japan in evvery quarter. Twins received the award five times in a row(over one year!) and is enshrined as a Hall of Famer. What they sell are as follows(all the same in Twins on any shards): [Vendors outside(some examples)] - Vendor 7: shop runes - Vendor 8: scrolls, spellbooks, runebooks, T-cities runebooks - Vendor 9: potions, smoke boms - Vendor 10: repair deeds - Vendor 11: music instruments of exceptionlity, bolas, bandages [Vendors inside(some examples)] - Vendor A: all house add-ons ( only normal color ) - Vendor B: House Decoration Set -- I made this post and Littleskywalker's post of recommended websites in Asia sticky.
