FoA Treasury Moves Royal City Of Ter Mur September 18, 2009 After walking in Zento I noticed the Museum seemed to have vanished. I later found the museum in its new home of Ter Mur. I had the opportunity to contact Solus, the owner of the museum to ask him a few questions about one of Chesapeakes largest Museums. The new location is directly East of the Ter Mur Moongate. Why has the FoA Treasury / Museum moved to Ter Mur? I moved the house because the atmosphere in Ter Mur seemed much more fitting. The amount of travel it will see, will be increased once the moongate is activated. More people will be visiting Ter Mur than they did with Zento. What kind of items does the museum collect? I collect any EM Items/Sever Births/Shard wide community event items/Seer Items. My goal is to help show the history of each shard through the items that were found during their events. I try not to divulge into the history of each item, because I find the time researching and reading the history of the event and the item is much more fun and informative. The museum seems very well organized. Do you have a certain way of displaying items? I do not have set standards to display the items. I am not the best decorator around, but I try to make everything flow. I do admit, the most rare items will usually be found on the first floor. What is the most historic item in the Museum? Fiction wise in the game, the Treachery is probably the most historic. It was Lord Blackthorns "claw" after all. Do you have any new displays recently added to the museum? I have added several new items from around various shards. The items are mostly from recent events these shards have had the past couple months. What is your favorite display and why? They are all my favorite. Some items do hold a deeper meaning for me. Maidens Heart + Silver Plated Skull because they were items I received myself on Chessy. Treachery + Gem of Immortality because of the fiction behind the two items. Give us a look into how you decide what goes into the museum and how you obtain the item for display. Obtaining the items is no easy task. First off there is a large Rares community that helps keep track of when a shard has an Event Item. Then the next task is to post/travel to that shard to find the item and track down someone who owns it. Negotiating is the hardest part, working out a deal that satisfies both parties. Once you finalize your deal, you of course need to pack up the gold, and travel to and from the shard. For items over 100m in value, there are also trust issues. You have to discuss and figure out the safest way for both parties to trade. Sometimes this requires a broker to step in and help. Has the museum ever donated any decorative items to any outside communities? I do try to add to the community as much as I can. While true, I unfortunately cannot hand out the big rares, anything I can do to add to the shard community I will try my best. If something is needed, please ask Gareth to pass it on to me, and I will see what can be done. I also am aware some people may take that with a grain of salt considering how harsh I am on EM Vladimere, I want to reiterate, items in my collection are usually never for sell. When I get upset at Vladimere for being the only shard at the moment to NOT give Event Items, I am upset because we have no pieces of history to take home with us. Greed rules the world, but for me, it is about taking home a piece of history so I can show others history of our shard and others. A peak at the first floor of the FoA Treasury. This is all but a small part of the entire display area which is every tile in the building. If you want to see more you are just going to have to visit the FoA Treasury. Thank you Solus for taking the time to answer our questions and giving Chesapeake an insight of how the museum works and what it has to offer.
