"Projest Oasis". In the beginning, there was nothing. " Build It and They Will Come". That is the 'emphasis' theme around this project. What is the 'project' you ask? The raw beginnings a brand new town. BUT! Not just ANY town/city. A town that has a "REPRESENTATION" of every guild on the shard in the form of a "CONSULATE BUILDING". What? What are you talking about? I am talking about having a town, where every guild on the shard would build/construct a building, known as a " CONSULATE". A Consulate, for those that don't know, is a Diplomatic Building that serves as the residence or workplace of a "Concul". It is where, as a returning visitor, new visitor, new or returning player, can come and enjoy the following: * Be introduced or re-introduced to what's going on in the game of UO * Be a Helpful place to help get you re-started or started in the game * Be shown around the Sosarian World to re-ignite memories or to see if this world fills your desires * To craft you the things you need to get started in the game, most free of charge to help you get started * To get Questions answered wether new or returning * To investigate and check out the Various Guilds that are represented by their "CONSULATES BUILDINGS on the shard and to see what each have to offer to make your game play go in the way of your interest. * Be consulted by some of the most knowledgeable players in the game or by players that have great knowledge of the inner workings of the game and the world of Sosaria. * Be directed to areas of where you, as the player, can get things repaired, imbued, crafted, or just looking for those perticular items. Now. Getting something like this off the drawing board is not an easy step. (as some might know). Alot of planning, time, money,etc. goes into this and it is our desire to ask, persuade, and talk to the various guilds on the shard to build a "Consulate" Building in this new town, (The First Ever). It will be a first. No other area has ever proposed such a move in this direction and we want all of the guilds/alliances to be a part of it. I would like to meet and talk with those possibly interested in this project to please contact me, via- e-mail, ICq, PM, or any other means as to wether or not your guild/alliance would have an interest in this Projected project of "Oasis". Something to think about....... Returning players, after being gone for years, come back and feel like they are "brand new" to a game they once enjoyed. Many things have changed over the years and some need questions asked or help getting re started. New Players get into a starting city and are blown away quickly because they are totally confused and lost. Our goal is to show these new or returning players we want them to stay and enjoy what we do. The only way to do that is to have a center town where, after their introduction to Ter Mur or Haven, they can be brought to or shown this wonderful new town where all the help they need are all in one spot and a "recruiting" area for guilds to show these players what each have to offer. A "Charter" is being drawn up , but not alll inclusive, so that all Consulate "head officals" of the guilds and their Consulate buildings, will have an idea of what the town is based on, their virtues, as well as other matters that would make this a grand town. It is also hoped that the "Head Officals" / Representatives, will be honored as being on the "Planning Board" for Oasis and take an active role in creating various RP things for Oasis. The ideas are endless and Oasis would make a grand place to have meetings to set up all types of player run ( or EM run) events, etc. SO IT IS ASKED, that you leave a response to this idea of having a town that would fulfill many of the things mentioned above. (and I'm sure there are more). You can also PM me, ICQ me @ 613919628, e-mail me at : [email protected] Below is the First "CONSULATE" building at this new location. Thank you and hope to hear from those interested. Alot is being worked on and the founders are busy meeting and writing, also meeting with tenative "Consulate" Officals. There are 3 thus far. But stay tuned for further developments as we work on this town. Thank you very much.
