    Unless I am missing something, only factioneers are able to take part in this quest.

    Not like there's any way for the devs to work around it for you guys with this event.. the Royal Council meets inside the castle.

    You mean like they have an area setup on Siege in Serpent Isle so that the entire population could go to the original RBG quest events. Nice try...la

    Well yeah, but none of them before were anything completely specific to the castle fiction-wise.

    In the past, the EMs have used the War Room in Serpent's Hold instead of the throne room in Castle Britannia as a gathering point for the Royal Britannian Guard. This also had a fictional explanation: when Minax invaded Britannia, Nystul's spell on Siege Perilous created a protective barrier around Serpent's Hold instead of opening the moongates to Trammel, and the city was subsequently used as the seat of the official government while the Factions were fighting for control of the rest of the land.
    Therefore it would have made sense for the last gathering of the Royal Council to happen in Serpent's Hold instead of Britain on Siege...

    On Siege, a few critters will not stop us from getting where we want to go. An impassable barrier on the other hand...

    Yeah, it was great with that one event in the castle with the mouce and coins. Only faction players could do it, and to top it off, the coins weren't stealable...la

    If you find the KEY clue in this Murder Mystery event then you will not need
    to go through the Castle!

    But, if anyone wants to actually follow through from start to finish, then they're pretty much out of luck.

    Yeah, that is a bummer. Perhaps the True Brits *spits* should get a new hang out.

    ...

    Yeah, it was great with that one event in the castle with the mouce and coins. Only faction players could do it,

    And then they spawned every 4 hours in the Britain Sewers for about a month afterwards. You COULD have gotten as many as you could carry then (I know I did on LS). Are the sewers Faction only?

    And here I thought any non-PvP content was beneath the mighty Siege players! :p :D

    Do not let a few speak for all of Siege. Many of us enjoy the same things all UO players do. We are not all that different. *nods*

    where are these players, still just posting on stratics about how they wana change siege and never get around to logging in to make an actual change... just some food for thought might be hard to swallow but it isnt meant in a bad way... just a bad thing for siege.

    I log in everyday Puff, and I play (don't PvP, that's not my style but I do plenty of other stuff) every day. I just prefer playing Siege because it's more old school than the other shards. And I don't think it's too much to ask that things actually work on our shard. It gets really old being treated as the red-headed step-child of UO just because we want a challenge in play style. No one said we wanted defective game mechanics, just a challenge in the style we play. I don't think it's too much to ask (especially as our money spends as well as players on shards where things work from the jumping off point) but apparently it IS too much to deliver on. Sad, but true.
