    There are a lot of places for 18x18 but you won't find any spots for a castle. If I run across a spot for an 18x18 i will hit you up.

    Although you may be fortunate enough to either find an 18x18 spot yourself, or bump into someone who knows where one is, another good idea may be to ask around for people who do IDOC's (In Danger of Collapsing).

    Majority of people seem to be more interested in what they can grab, rather than what they can place. I was at one IDOC yesterday where an 18x18 fell in Malas. Nobody hung around afterwards to wait and place.

    I was quite lucky myself when I returned to UO about 4 months ago. I placed a 15x15 near Umbra first day back. Within a couple of weeks, our IDOC guild found two neighbouring 18x18's that both fell at the same time. Myself and another guildmate placed replacements without any competition.

    I've since moved to Ter Mur and passed my old house onto a guildmate.

    To be honest, these days, unless a house is in a location of particular interest to other players (vendors spots, towns, moongates, etc...), it isn't really worth much, given the relative ease of finding "free" locations to place these days.

    Of great interest and quite amusing, is that the place in the NW corner of Luna that is "4 SALE" doesn't seem to have changed hands. Our guild raised the funds to offer the owner 500 million... but they clearly weren't interested in our "derisory" offer ;)

    Still "4 SALE" though, isn't it... lol

    If you are still looking for a spot I ran across an open 18x18.

    My names on the game are Orglog and Yobo. Yesterday was my first day back to UO. I used to be an IDOC'er. I went to Malais, looking for some IDOC's, came across an 18x18, hid, waited, checking occasionally. Finally it dropped, I got some stuff, not much. After awhile I placed my house, put up my 12th aniv stuff and felt pretty good.
    The biggest problem I have now is staying interested in the game. I got on this morning and wandered around, seeing no one. I went to the Brit bank, that used to be the hang out, turned out kind of sad really. It was like I could almost see ghosts of the multitudes that used to hang there to the point that I could not even move with my 72 mb of ram I had then.
    So I went to Luna, I think there were at times anywhere from 1 to 4 people there. I guess I was asking for too much, I don't need the 3d, but I do need people to be around. What ever happened to the days of shopping when wanting to do something different, or meeting at friends houses and having fun doing different things. I even went running around all over the world, sure I saw a few people, most didn't have anything to say (or couldn't understand me). Only a few though, like in maybe three in a really big ride to Vesper, Minoc, Cove, Britain, etc.
    Should I continue this game? I think I having one of those miss the ole days times. I came back once before about two years ago, really got into it, people were still hanging around the Brit bank and all, but now, no body, man its lonely out there in a big world.

    Congrats T-Hunt being persistent pays off.

    Vieda, There are still some folks left on Great Lakes. Days are usually pretty lonely unless you make some connections with folks who play days. There are definitely different groups out doing their own things. SA has a lot of folks working for imbuing ingredients, hunting doing quest etc. There are many groups hosting in game auctions evenings, roleplayers out there. Luna has become the biggest hub, a few trying to get a move back to Brit. It may have been too long a gap to get many to come back and bank sit Brit.

    Check out Chicken Fight Club, Guild of Friends, Y-Cuzz that's how we roll, Tradesman's guild, FCB .. watch for guild postings on Stratics about upcoming events they're hosting. Not sure if the calendar system in stratics ever got fixed? But there use to be one that kept a monthly register of each event someone posted.

    Majestic Oaks Auction runs Wed & Thurs starts at 8 p.m. typically don't see most start to arrive until 8:30 p.m. CST. Most player run events tend to run between 7 p.m. cst as a start and on from there.

    If you watch Luna you'll start to pick up on what times the most folks are actually there and not on/off their pc banksitting.
