    Hey all,

    I was just wondering if anyone was planning on making a player run town with the Magincia plots. Are any guilds going to try and get the majority of them?

    UP is going to join the lottery, but we don't have the membership to get a majority of anything.

    We're just hoping for a second headquarters.

    I plan to join the lottery, but not to try to gain too many plots. To have a town there I would have to let go of Aegis.

    Thanks for the info guys, I am just trying to figure out who I can extort. I am getting all of my friends on other shards to bid on the one ticket per account plots so I can amass as many as possible and charge exhortation amounts of money to anyone crazy enough to want to build a real "community" there.

    I have seriously considered using a name change on one of my characters and making it "Ebil Podo"

    But eventually ebil will be synonymous with Podo so it would be redundant anyway. Actually in some "circles" it already is.

    I bought one ticket for each southern plot (except one, for reasons which should be obvious, I bought a few of that plot's tickets)...

    So when I wind up winning the lottery for one of those plots, I'm SO rubbing it in all of your faces!

    When I spend 100 million on each plot and do not win one of them you can really rub it in my face! Wait, they have a trammel version of this?

    Pandora you really need to embrace ebil again...

    I now have a plot that gives me 1:3.1 odds.

    Oh and any plot, if any, I do get will be vendor free save for the possiblity of one to sell my own junk in a tasteful location.

    Lets all pledge to create a constant supply of ancient hell hounds in New Mag if we don't get our way. If we use the anti-shadow's vase pool of resources and scare tactics we should win without a doubt.

    Pasting some stuff from another forum I posted on about this for trammel.

    Basically, the idea would be to have npc-like shops setup, each for a certain purpose. Each shop would have a low number of vendors (2-5). The owner of each shop would buy items relating to their shop from other shop owners and resell them on their vendors. That is, if you own a ps/sot/alcarity shop, you would buy those items from the other shop owners in the area who are wishing to sell them (at a break-even price for both of you), and sell them on your vendors (goal is less vendors). If you have items that don't belong in your shop, you sell them to the appropriate shop. This would keep shops to having a strict theme to them, improve community relations, and reduce the rediculous amount of vendors that Luna has. The overall benefit of this is... 1) better looking town, 2) cool town, 3) better shopping. If the town was setup like this, players wouldnt need to hunt through a garbage mall. Go to New Mag, go straight to the 1 player-run blacksmithy shop, look through the armor vendor. Don't see what you want? Well, then New Mag dosn't have it, because you are at the smith shop. Looking for a Scrappers? Go to New Mag, go straight to the 1 Magic Shop, look through the scribe vendor. Neato, they have it, and it was much easier than going through an ill-arranged mall.


    Thoughts?

    If lightning should strike and I actually win a plot, this is what will happen to it.

    I will give it away (not sell, give) to a role play project which I consider worthy.

    If I should, against all odds, win the plot I want then I will turn it into a loading/unloading dock for all pirate activities. (That plot is, I belive, SW3... the one closest to the docks)

    My hope is that a few of the houses will have actual player-manned shops (as opposed to vendors)... but that's hoping against 13 years of UO tradition of placing vendors and forgetting about them when the owner gets bored.

    We'll see what happens... I could just wind up homeless.

    Line forms behind me folks.


    I've got a couple of tickets for a few plots, and a whole lot of tickets for one plot in particular. If I win I'm going to build a crystal borg cube packed with vendors, the celiling will be covered in every garish neon colored object I can get my hands on and the inside will be filled with vet statues so nobody can even move near my house without going deaf and blind! It's gonna be great.


    Or maybe I'll just build a simple farm house with a vendor or two working in the yard.

    Don't forget a full collection of noise-making statues.

    And a singing crystal ball. Or six.

    And every other tile filled with a black cat statue (dyed neon)!

    When I win one (I better atleast win ONE having spent close to 70m on tickets) I'm going to make it an obvious cluster-f-bomb. Be ready to shield your eyes and ears
