As we're all aware, people have often questioned the state of Luna and compared it to what the West Britain Bank used to be. But Luna isn't all that bad! Special thanks to Ailish, who wrote this great commentary on Luna and its current state of affairs: <blockquote> The Revitalization Of Luna For many months now, Luna has been a mostly quiet place, with merchants' houses sitting empty, idle. Shopping was a painful task; finding what you needed difficult. Recently, though, something has changed ... Some shops have traded hands, and others have re-opened their doors to renters with wares to sell. Even as the homes of those branded traitors burn in silent warning, a walk around the city shows new vendors cropping up everywhere. Today, in the northwest quadrant of the city, there is a bustle of activity with the re-opening of Joanna of PvB's shop. The spaces are filling up quickly and a large variety of goods is available - there seems to be something for everyone! Turning the corner and heading east you come across the Grand Opening of Nabin's newest house, The Fire Robe Vendor House. Here you can find armor of all sorts, artifacts, and supplies, as well as a few other interesting and useful good. Right next door to the east, Shop Til You Drop has opened for business, stocking Peerless Ingredients, recipes, repair deed and more. While it is a mere open aired dirt plot, the goods available make it worth a stop. Into the northeast quadrant, the Imperial Fortress of BDE has began stocking with tokens and a few other high end items. While the vendors here are still a bit scant, there is hope that they will be fully stocked soon. Directly in the northeast corner of town, there has been alot of new activity, with the opening of Mudd's Market selling many different weapons and armors, as well as most artifacts imaginable. Tucked away right in the corner you will find the newly revitalized Vendor House selling nearly everything imaginable and often renting out new spots at very afordable prices. Turning the corner and moving south you see that The Foundry has re-opened its doors to business. While today shows many of the vendors on the steps sold out of items, inside you find newly stocked vendors selling wares of all sort. Moving into the southeast quadrant, again many new vendors are found. Here you find that Joanna has re-opened the PvB Vendor Mall & Auction House. While there is only a single vendor here at this time, I am told that we can expect to see more in the coming weeks. Across the way is The Happy Rose, owned by Acacia Rose with many interesting goodies for sale. Tucked deep in the corner, and easy to miss if you are not looking for it, is an unnamed shop selling quite a few items including high-end rubble and ingredients, Marks of Travesty and even a Crimson Cincture. Right next door, Vampy's Garden Party Vendors is seeing a new flow of goods, with Runic Hammers, whole sets of resist armor and even some Powder of Fortifying and Pet Balls. To the west, Medieval Merchants is slowly coming to life selling armor. Finally, in the southwest, next to the burning rubble of the house of a traitor, you can find Dawn's Vendors, where many crafted goods are to be had. Yes, it definitely appears that Luna is coming back to life! Perhaps this is only a snapshot of what is happening in the fine Napa Valley ... having seen with sadness the fall of too many homes, we can hope that new friends are arriving and that old friends are coming home.</blockquote> Luna is definitely the best mall around... and it's sure seen some excitement lately! It used to only have one burning building (thanks to a hostile raid in the city), but now we can add a couple more to the tally. Luna sure needs to upgrade their firefighting team! Thanks for the report, Ailish! Safe travels, everyone!
