    Greetings all,

    I have recently placed a stone keep and was wondering how to access the 3 grass areas? i am going to demolish and rebuild with another account and wonder if i mark the spots then mark when demolished if the will work when i put it back up? Also wondering if you can secure or lock down in those areas if you can indeed access them?

    thank you,

    giles

    You used to be able to access those areas with a marked rune ...

    though i have lost my runes and haven't tested it in a while ...

    I know that if you can access them you cannot secure or lockdown anything there.

    I had a rune to the grassy area in the back of one of our guild Keeps once.

    But yeah you can't deco that sadly.

    The keep must be kept public to recall in to those areas. You mark runes before you place. I have my inner areas decorated with non-decay items and furniture i've collected from old idocs.


    ** Mark about 3-4 runes for each of the 3 areas just incase you miss, plus you will have backups.

    What I always did was place a mousehole above the grassy areas then turn into a slime and go down. I used to do this because I had a tree in the grassy area and would get Frostwood from it.

    Just a suggestion.

    Yes the fixed it so you cannot recall in those buildings.
    Marking before and then placing works..but uhm .. is basically an exploit :p

    I actually tried to get into these areas in one of my keeps not too too long ago ... and have to say I was a bit bummed you cannot cast fields in houses anymore ... cause that was the easiest way to get up or down through floors and ceilings ...

    That being said ... I don't see it being too 'wrong' to mark runes, then build a keep .. I mean in all technicalities, who's to say that some random player didn't have a rune marked there years ago, and you just happened to build a keep over their recall point? ;-)

    This actually happened to a group of us... we had just placed a keep for our guild and were remarking about how neat it was and getting all the deco done and basically "dedicating" the building to the guild..... When someone recalled in to the back grassy area... we were all stunned...

    I partied the individual and we talked and apparently the house that had been there he had a rune to was a vendor house... at one point. So I met him in Skara Brae and he gave us a rune to the back grass patch of the house. Was pretty cool.

    Ignore what people say. You can mark runes and recall to keeps no matter what.
