Really Weird Castle on Sonoma

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Lord Drakelord, Oct 28, 2008.

  1. I know this castle was not like this the last time by as I hunt in this area for berries and seeds. Recently I got berries from the savages just below this castle and the castle was held by a owner.

    Now can any one answer me as to why this castle would be like this?

    That castle has been there as long as I can remember on pretty much every shard.

    I know that castle has been there for a while now. Think the GMs placed it. Reason it was placed? No clue at all.
     
  4. What does the sign say? Can't really see it to well...

  6. This Building is being held by the Britannian Architect's Foundation. Please do not call a GM about it. Now I will swear on a stack of Bibles that was not the sign just couple weeks ago when I was hunting seeds and berries around here.

    There was some kind of exploit years ago that allowed people to build houses in swamp areas they were not allowed to build in. These kinds of houses popped up all over and were gotten illegally so the GMs announced that they were confiscating all of them. That is all I can remember about it, but there were a ton of them on Atlantic that I remember them grabbing up...

    there is one with the same name on napa, been there forever.
     
  9. This castle has been there for Years, not a recent placement, so has to be another reason why its been taken over by EA. I'm like George when I see things like this and just wonder whats up.

    Before players could place houses in Trammel, the volunteer staff had 2 castles placed on every shard for events. To my knowledge, these castles have never been used. Which is not surprising considering they were placed in swamps with terrible spawns around them.

    There is a large tower like that there as well.

    The way I remember it those castles were originally placed by players.
    At the time those swamp sections were not intended for player housing and were taken back fairly quick(like recent events).

    I remember I was really ticked off as I had placed a keep.:mad:

    There is also on on Chess that has been there as long as I can remember.
    I alway thought it was strange that it had two signs.
    But the bottom one has always said the same as the one on your shard.

    That castle is directly in front of my museums current location in tram on lake superior. We actually marked a rune in the courtyard of it and you can recall right in.

    2. There was one here on Baja that fall a few weeks back .. the sign now sits out in front, away from the new castle that was placed.
