    *Brief story time*

    Back in the day when SE went live the wee Miranda placed a home right outside the north Zento Wall. It was the first or second home to be placed in the then new lands, dodging the vile Memnoch :)[hugs memmers]... whom also wanted that same plot, kept tryin to kill the wee Miranda that day so he could get the plot. But alas the wee carpenter Miranda, had won the plot placement, anyhow !

    Then the first ever tokono treasures came and many a vile VaMPire, slain the poor lil insolent blue crafter, Miranda, right there in her own front yard...in the GZ. *ah memories*

    Her solution to her problem then, was to transfer her home to her layeth the smacketh down pvpin brother formerly in KSS named Castor. He and his brother Pollux then owned the home. Then sadly he and his best friend Skylark and Kestrel left the lands.

    The home went back to Miranda quite recently but one had to wait the timers on their vendors...but even then, alas how does one turn a designed for her brother, 'mancave' back into a girly froo froo home of her own again, riddled with parrots ? :)

    From this...
    [​IMG]

    to THIS :)

    [​IMG]

    The vampires are also long gone and the vendors hath timed out, but if ye look closely a *new* Castor and Kestrel still stand there..anyhow..

    IT IS looking like...[MY] HOUSE AGAIN...remodeled ! :) YAY ! *does happy dance* to be back in a silly historic plot that perhaps is meaningless to others, but to me ... to me it always was a special spot riddled with fond memories of Siegers whom have now left us yet still a place I call *home* !

    Thank you !

    Aye there are some good shops in Zento nowadays.

    Molly just moved her Emporium from Moonglow gate area, onto the south shore there right behind the south Zento wall, by the fishermen.

    Missy Sugar Rush as I call her, has her WALMART there.

    Zeb and the new Ginsu have their vendors there choc full usually of stuffs.

    A home sort of n n/eastish from my home is another shop full of carpentry items and more too. There are more homes on the East Zento walls with vendors as well.

    Now if every one keeps em all restocked, Zento may become a happening place to go shopping on Siege ! :)

    PS. I have put house teleporter tile on Miranda's lil bit of lawn to the my alts house the Halloween house today too, right behind Miranda's in Zento.

    I got all 3 of my Siege chrs. homes firmly planted, all in Zento now. :) Been a busy week or two for me. :)

    hahaha, I bet you got one of the plots that I dropped in Zento!!

    That's good to know about the shopping. I always struggled finding the items I needed.

    Which plot did you have on Zento ?

    Miranda is back where I had placed originally when SE went live.. It is max secureds which coulda went a tile wider but I was being attacked when I placed it lol so 16 x 14 worked faster at the time. I transferred it to Castor's Pollux.. later on, and they transferred it back to me, now.

    My Joesef has now the plot that Skylark or her alts held by the Ankh area there... it is only a 17 x something plot not max secureds but it was empty and something had to go up thus the halloween house. :)

    Then I slapped my Hughes way up there by the gamans, 18x18. It is private though. I wanted my Hughes, on the waterfront. :) He is a fish tank nut raising fish in his aquariums so he is now in the new *Zento Fish Hatchery*.

    Then Doive left his plant spot, so I told my guildmate that spot south of WALMART was open again, and so my guildmate is now in Zento too. :)

    And there are STILL more plots in Zento open, not all of em huge, but some are max secureds, some not. I like my big private 18 x 18 up there by the gamans on the waterfront. If the Tokono treasures ever go live again I may be bashin lil deathwatch beetles up there in the Zento-ie sand, yet. :)

    I was on the east side of Zento. I'm going to be running around and see if I can find another spot I like.

    The garden is open, feel free to pick an apple and sit on the bench beneath the tree to eat it.

    lol

    I have some of them on the roof and more on the balcony below, but yeh,
    they are not all displayed at Miranda's any longer. A few of them are at the Halloween house, and some are over at my Hughes' home on Zento. :)

    Perhaps I now have too many of em to keep, all of em at only just one of my homes, since I do not like keeps or castles. :)

    And then Petra puts some on her vendors, and I can not resist to buy em, and then I end up with MORE ! :) But ya need to hit ALL NAMES in case maybe ya missed some in just passing by. . there are still quite a few elderly most personalities there in my flock of parrots with former KSS/MYTH names or other elderly UO Siege personalities, whom gave me their parrots ages ago. My most elderly parrot was given to me by Castor & Skylark hense it's name is *Castor Skylark* ! :)

    The elderly most parrots, stay with Miranda. Although I did keep FreeBIRD and Lynard Skynard at Miranda's [even though they be newbies]. rolleyes:

    Pink Floyd the parrot is now housed at my 'Dark Side Of the Moon' Halloween house with JackSkeleton, Pumpkin King and them parrots.

    The cut off for newblets tho. usually oft ends with "Righty" the green beer colored parrot, whom is just under 180 or so, wks old.

    The younger youngsters of parrots 150 wks. or less in age, ie overflow of my flock, may oft get 'perched' at my other houses nowadays. :lol:

    Glad to see the plot went back to the original generous owner (although many may not recall, even on Siege, right after SE launched, Zento GZ accessible large plots were worth a tidy sum, and I know Castor was certainly appreciative of the gift).

    I do regret that you had to clean up after several years of Castor occupancy. I recall when he first started adding his uh, special decorating touches to your lovely turn-key, original themed design...*cringe* :p. But, it always cracked me up to see where he dumped junk and "arranged" his statue collection in there. And I am especially glad that Castor Jr. the blaze colored parrot after a long solo vigil, will continue to age on Siege in a real home now. Enjoy QZ! :)

    :) Yeh and I think he enjoyed smackin the VMP that were in my former yard too..kinda surprising em that this lil blue crafter gave her house to some one that could actually smack em now and then way better than I could with my tinker tools. LOL Seemed a good solution at the time to rid that yard of riff raff. :)

    Aye *Shudder* yet somehow his chaos in there just brung back fond memories. . even going way back to the KSS restock houses that I was in charge of organising...then Castor or Py would go in there tryin to re equip and GAH... CHAOS again ! lol

    And we can add the ZILLION bods you had in there so nicely arranged and labled too. There were so many of them, I took them all over to my Hughes' home in Zento and they fill chests & his item count in there, all along a whole wall of chests, n. to s. !

    I now have my guildmate friended in there cuz she is into bods more than I am. She can go thru em all and perhaps finally get that 120 tailoring pwr. scroll she so badly needs yet, from all your/ and his bods.

    Yesterday she went thru em and was surprised that there were so many of them, but she did say Skylark sure has em all arranged/organised quite nicely.

    Then I turned her loose on the chests in there full of MY bods, where the bod books are labeled...'I HATE BODS'. :lol:rolleyes: Maybe she will find some good ones in there too that she can use between all of yours and mine too.

    I told her to feel free to take any bods to get polar bear rugs cuz yall gave me my first polar bear rugs here doing bods, so I am good to go and she doesn't have any or many.

    YES Castor Skylark the parrot and the ones yall had in there too with your names on em, will always remain there, so will the 2 vendors that look like each of you. . [redone to my control now] but in yalls outfits from your prior vendors. :) I also am keeping the bright blazey colored rarewood box, that I engraved for him labeled 'to Blaze Numbnuts !' lol

    LOL...you need to include Mac in the guilty list of KSS supply house de-organizers. He was a wonderful supply contributor, but not such a good supply stasher.

    As for the modest BOD collection we had, for quite a while, I tried keeping the BODs grouped in books according to the rewards, but it was a losing battle because they were in his house and he'd just dump BODs in any book that had room in the first container he opened.

    And we certainly wouldn't have wanted the Blaze Numbnuts box to fall into the wrong hands. :D

    :) When many of them KSS menfolk came in the restocks to re equip lookin for stuffs or droppin off loots, after death and dying, it was often a NIGHTMARE in them restocks ! LOL

    Ah not that YOU are forgotten, my halloweeny house behind the Zento ankh seems to be sporting a... "the very first exceptional pizza delivered to you" engraved and made by a Skylark. . also some peach cobblers and fruit bowls etc. on display at the temp. halloween house..which may become 'Wintermoor' for Dec. in there. :)
