    Hello kind people,

    for some sort of in-game-project i am looking for Owners of classic
    Houses like Villa/L-Shaped/Small Houses/... who have or are willing
    to set their Houses to public and allowing visitors to stroll around.

    Even better if you may have it furnished/decorated in some kind of
    'uo-historical' fashion.

    I espeacially also search for old player-town/player-run establishments
    like the Spiritwood Trammel Campus (Big Tower) wich are still standing
    and accessable.

    Faccets doesn't matter, though in my mind Felucca and Trammel are the
    places with most history ;)

    Aditional to that i am interested in copies of all sorts of player written
    books about uo-historic places, guilds, persons or related items like
    books or items from 'The Roman Empire' or such things.

    And finally - if you know any spot in the lands which has a special history
    or was part of this history of uo and you have the according infoarmation
    as well (maybe even written in a book? ;)) - i will be more that happy to
    have it shown to me :)

    I am best contacted here over the boards (thread-reply or PM) and will
    get back to you as soon as i can.


    Heimlich and Erasmus: Maybe we can arrange a meeting, i would like to
    show you what i am working at to get your input,
    feedback and am open for more ;)

    Barian, Lien and other GM-Crafters with some 'historical background' *winks*:
    I would like to purchase 5 normal wood undyed benches
    from you ;) (Haven't checked if you sell benches in at
    your shop, Barian - will do so soon ;))

    Do you already have Valoria on your list? While that project doesnt seem to be active any longer, their webside is still up and the Runelib & Meeting Hall is still standing and a classic, public large tower. According to the web side, their might be some public set books somewhere inside. (Have a look at http://valoria.net/valoria/home/ )

    In Spiritwood you'll also find the Spiritwood Tavern and Spiritwood Theater.

    The tavern has been re-designed a few years ago but it's been at the same location since... Well as long as I can remember, which dates it at at least 2003.
    Amorph Mus, from EA&E, owns it now.

    The theater has been kept with pretty much the same design over the years. Again, I'm not sure exactly how old it is but it's been there as long as I can remember.
    I own the theater since... 2005 I believe. It's a bit messy at the moment cause I recently moved the last of my stuff in there. If you're interested I can probably dig up some screenshots of the theater from when it was active.

    History of UO Europa is incomplete without Deepwater. And Deepwater or better: The remains of Deepwater are still standing. And will hopefully stay until the shard goes down. We've played a part in the early history of UO Europa. (Anyone remembers the visit of Lord British?) The old tavern, the tower/library and a few other very old buildings are here. Tavern and library are open to the public.

    Best wishes
    Crowen

    Indeed would be incomplete without Deepwater, Crowen :) - i am fully aware of that and
    it will be a part of my project for sure. Some nice Memorys myself about that Town, even
    if i was merely a sosarian child then, looking with big eyes on the wonders of the town and
    its almighty citisend - at least that was the impression i got ;)

    Spiritwood as well - didn't knew there were still so many of the old Buildings left - thanks Leto - i will definately come back to you all about the locations - and still more to come i hope.

    Unfortunately i believe that nothing is left from Ancient Oak, or am i wrong here? I was
    looking after the obvious Buildings like the two large Towers and Tobsters Shop, but maybe
    there are some other Buildings left there?

    So far its all still under construction and i struggle with designs, structures and ways to
    deal with several challenges involved, but as i am still testing and sorting stuff, ithink its time to reward your effords to answer my questions with a brief and rough outlook ;)

    Attached to this Post you will find two pictures of the momentary state of the entrance
    Building off the (hopefully) soon opening:

    [proud voice] Sosarian History Park [/proud voice]

    It will contain of multiple structures on multiple faccets (incl. felucca ofc.), wich are
    connected thrugh teleporters. The Structures will contain examples of historic interieurs
    and Items, all guided thrugh by books telling facts and stories.
    (And even guided tours or personal guides if wanted and available - every help is welcome)

    Also under construction for this is a special rune library for historical sites, wich i try to
    build up besides the park-construction.

    Well - no idea how fast progress will be - don't want to promise anything - knowing me
    and my 'moods' - so maybe needs some patience :)

    The Entrance Building is in Trammel, on the Road between Britain and Vesper - on the
    small clearing south of Britain Swamps - and its open to the public already - but at your
    own risc ;) - All feedback and Ideas, Remarks etc. are most welcome (there are Bulletin
    Boards and a Mailbox available)

    I'm currently the owner of the Spiritwood University Trammel campus, and it'll stand as long as UO continues, if humanly possible. It's fully public and visitors are welcome at any time :)

    Stonekeep should of course be added as well in any history of the shard that includes old player-towns. No classic homes left there though - although it`s been awhile since I was down there.

    You're right - almost :) The town is long gone, today it's PvP zone anyway. There is only one trace left: Cooper, an alter ego of mine. Valfreya, Njord, Nina Fonseca, Ibram, Hevi.... all left for hopefully better worlds. The guild roster shows the last login 2006, Niklas I think.

    I'll keep the stone anyway, A0K is now a one man guild :/ If you see Cooper [Craftsman of the Oak] ingame just say hello.

    I could provide some screenshots from the old town, thats all.

    Good luck with your project!

    Stonekeep is all gone as well as far as i saw :( - but yes - will be mentioned as well

    All you people remembering those places, if you have a chance just write something
    in a book in game if you have the time - like names, some incident - names with
    ranks, - or maybe you have a crafted item, a t-map or anything else (even if its
    not original) that can be related to the place/history.

    Pirates items from Stormhold? ;)

    Crowen: you could do me a huuuuuge favour to be honest - if you still have the
    crafter - could you make me some of the music stands and quarterstaffs that were
    used for the AO-Arena - and maybe also a stool that were standing inside? So i could
    rebuild a small corner of it ?

    Why do they have to be classic houses out of curiosity? Because 90% of people changed to customizable houses when they came out, i know all the old RP Guilds that are still around like Grd and -V- all changed. Stonekeep is still there but customizable houses are just better so we all changed, especially better for RP. :)

    Its generally all the old guilds/player towns that died that have classic houses still standing for memories and history etc.

    Good to see someone with an eye on the past Crest :)

    Mine's still an old style large marble, and has been for seven years now - it's public too, and it's at the end of the swamp between Trinsic and Britain. My second house is also an old L-Shape, and that's just north of the RAA shop - that's public too, and pretty much both are decorated as they were when I first placed or bought them.

    I might not be around quite as much lately, but having passed into my eleventh year (as I think you have too recently ;)) gives me a little bit of nostalgia. Plus a nice shiny polar bear, hehe!

    Its not just the classic house designs i am after, Esca - its two things basicly mixed :)

    1.) i search for classic house designs to give people the opportunity to take a look
    at the two pre-custom housing areas - the first designs from small houses to
    castles and the 'new' designs that were intruduced with the discovery of Trammel
    like the small Workshops, Villa, Log Cabin, Sandstone, large Marble etc.

    2.) i also search for 'historical' spots like old player run towns and establishments.
    i will focus on 'historical' spots as in gone with time and not so much the still
    active ones - though i am aware that they often also have historical elements.
    But i think the active ones are fully able to keep the memory alive themselves ;)

    I then will work on a rune-library for the both parts and the places that merge both
    elements - i also have rebuild 4 of the classic house designs on properties of the
    Sosarian History Park so far, so people can get an impression of the history of housing
    directly there without recalling around.

    Muck: maybe you can provide me with some history of that area - most of my memory
    and esperiences there are based on the felucca part of that ;) [I-C] anyone? Or the
    Shop there *winks at Petra*

    Melchiah: great news - i will look out for them and will gladly include them - maybe
    you can provide me some infos about intentions and use at some time :)

    Perhaps not the most famous of all locations but Nokhmar in feluca still "exist" Old ORC town. all houses there are owned by 2 people (one is a rl friend of mine who allso used to be the warboss of severed headz) all that remains of the originals though is the tower i think... as far as the ORC house by the yew orc fort i dont know if its still there and if it is who owns it. the town has a guild calld Nokhmar and consist of those 2 people. they are both inactive though. think one of my toons are still in it.
    The place is allso ironicly known as heartglen i think. THough the orcs probably wernt famous for there big hearts:)

    afaik i got the only active old "ORC" orc these days. She is lonley i tell you :)

    WAAAAGH!
