    It has been a long time now that one cant find any specific place with dedicated crafters. A place (like Britain's forge) where players could exchange gossips, hints, ideas, get stuff repaired by efficient and trustworthy specialists.
    The interaction in such place always has been of a great interest and fun for everyone in the old days and i believe it may be time to (re) create it especially at a time where new and returning players are running around to find info and help.

    If you are interested you will find Lien Ragus (my main artisan) ready to service your needs every single day from 7 to 8 pm CET (6 to 7 pm GMT) near the Britain's west bank public forge. (bank and public gate make the place the best imo).

    All dedicated crafters are also welcome to join (if they wish of course). I strongly hope that this will meet many different goals and needs, giving Sosaria main city a new life.

    Today, friday the 15th will be my first day...
    Hope to see you around,

    Thanks
    Lien Ragus

    I like the idea :)
    It would be especially good if others joined in to give it a regular 'market' feel.

    A great idea this, I remember the old days in Britain well, both the bank and the forge. I do wonder tho whether at the present time Crafters/ helpers might be better located in Haven. The bank, smithy and tailors shop are all fairly close and it would benefit new players.

    First day has ran... Despite the short notice i m glad to have seen a bunch of ppl in Britain. A great thanks to crafters who came and especially to Ireland from Moonglow who supported me all along this hour.

    Thanks to customers who came and gave us their goods for repairs. and thanks also for those who came just for the chat ;)

    Hope to be more and more around as the Public service will run day after day. And if you ever meet new or returning players wandering around this hour please be kind enough to direct them there...

    Thanks again !!

    Here's Ireland from Monglow but many of you know me as Morgana ;)
    What to say...i've enjoyned the time So much and, for this, a BIG thanks to Sir Lien Ragus, M'am Foxglove for Her visit and to everyone who came for a repair of just a chat.
    Of course i will attend every time Lord Lien do his "call to arms" and crossfingers to see more and more folks in there !
    It will be also nice to see "old school" tamers on "that" Brit Bank side, with some pets for sale and why not...someome who still do bit o' RP with Dice&cup :D

    It went well and it was a good start so i look forward for more and more.

    Lets try to make our beloved Brit the new Sosaria hub, once again !

    Sincerly yours
    Morgana

    oh i said on another post it actually gave me a feeling of joy!!!
    recently we have seen a decent influx of returning players and now this. barian reminded me of hunting before he was a smith. it was about 6 months before i even saw another town other than minoc and barian was always in the mint and i trusted him with my power silver katana. great days and i for sure will be dragging a crafter there from time to time. breathing life into west britain bank. we all know the glory days of uo may be over but if we can just get a sniff of that magic back maybe others will return. i ran a poll a while back asking luna or wbb and it was overwhelmingly (is that a word) won by wbb. i shall be going there and hanging out by the trash box like old times. thanks also to mim for helping those returning. xxxxx

    Hello Fellow Adventurers !!!

    It s been a couple of weeks that we started to stand daily at Britain West bank. I d like to take the opportunity here to reassess what we try to achieve here :

    Dedicated crafters (special thanks to Lady Ireland, Barian, Katya, Sarn and much more) are waiting for you every single day between 7 and 8 PM Cet.
    That s not only to give Britain a bit more life but also to allow you to have access to information. The people here WANT to help you.
    They obviously can repair your stuff freely but above all they also can help you with basic to advance matters. You have question on the suit you could need ?
    You need a specific item to be crafted ? Where to hunt ? What to do in general ?
    All those questions may find an answer at Britain bank while we are around.... and if you dont have a real use for yourself please spread the word to others who may need it.

    Dont hesitate to visit us. We are here for YOU...

    Hope to see you soon there,

    Public Service in Britain.

    This is how our beloved "West Britain Bank" was looking something like 2 or 3 days ago ( Aragorn, Sire, we drank more than 2 or 3 bottles haha :p )

    [​IMG]


    But but but....i've already posted ( on a seperated thread ) that Dupre visited us poor crafters at Brit Bank and Lord Lien Ragus crafted a sword for him !!

    While we were at Em Event ( with diff characters ofc..) i wisely checked Dupre's armour and weapon...Well...look at teh screenshot :)
