    Miranda mused at the pixies flying into her home. She has always liked living by the pixies and being neighbors near Luka and Kelmo in near Iantown way.

    Glancing upon her books, Miranda finds the tales and stories of A Toast to the White, The Knights Code, Saving the Temple, KSS charter, The Lay of Lethius, and a seashell scribed by Blind Otto. His words said, " Hold this seashell up to ye ear and ye will always be brought back to the sounds and memories, of Wintermoor."

    Suddenly her eyes glance upon a pen made by Ginsu for Aeric Horn, and Miranda's eyes grew moist with tears. Her once strong male knights & leaders of the Virtues and Justice, have long since left this world.

    Who or what am I but some half breed cross of my past, and our past oft molds us into whom we became along the way in our lives. I am but a product of WinterMyth, a child of Wintermoor and KSS and a child of old Myth town village, of knights whom wore silver and blue fighting for justice and the Virtues, yet also part of one of those knights Aeric, whom formed Guardians of Myth of blaze and red robes.

    Where do "I" even belong ? Miranda pondered.

    After much deep contemplation, there is only one answer that keeps coming into my heart and mind, I am WINTER ^MYTH, a citizen of Wintermoor Pass once full of life and death and KSS, leading out to it's neighbors, Guardians of MYTH town village once a pretty large village too, & maybe I one of the few remaining, as an odd lone *halfbreed* left, of my kind, perhaps.

    Miranda packs up her belongings, and moves back out to the very remote olde MYTH town village with it's passageway to olde Wintermoor and begins to set up housekeeping, a guild hall and duel pit, and vendor shops, to carry the blessed home.


    This is whom "I" am, a once Knighted crafter product of a Winter^Myth.
    No one's left but me, I will carry their tales and their torch.
    I bury my dead and I will sing out their names !
    I won't give up, I won't !

    Cuz you hogged up my old Minoc places. :)
    And my old Brit spots were not large enough for TWO max secureds togther.

    I need room for 2 or more of my own alts, to build 18 x 18 homes together seldom happens in the old world unless it is in reaper spawn from hell areas.

    ;) Least gimme a few points for trying to rebuild something anything, instead of tear down this shard. You could gimme a point for nice music choice in me youtube at least. QUIT GRIPIN at me :) k thx.

    I'm really happy that you're doing this...

    I just see: Iantown, Gilfane, Stonehaven and now Mythtown? all in Malas...

    In Felucca there is Bartertown and Wispool Shire

    ...

    I dunno, it's just kinda disappointing I guess.

    Aye thx.

    I had thought of where in the world to build in the old world, even had a fishing lodge set up in Ocllo cuz I love Ocllo. There just was not room. :(

    IF I find an old world area that works for hopeful growth later on, for the Winter Myth crossbreed that I am, I will surely use it and build upon it maybe even in his old KiN town, area someday which was across from Minoc.

    But for now, the roots of Wintermoor/ old Myth town, built deep within myself on this shard, and as new guild leader of Guardians of MYTH, old Myth village, it just seemed the correct place to go to back to; where MYTH town once stood, to carry the blessed /memories home, even if I may be one of the only few whom are left in MYTH, to go onward, homeward to go; to renew atm, and maybe to grow as a town and guild, on this shard, one fine day yet to come.

    Wish me luck ?

    Is not TDO's " Safehaven " in the old lands ? They are, I think, round the other side of the mountain from me, although I don't go round there often.

    Anyways, thought I would continue the RP a little....


    Cat grumbled under her breath as she awoke in her woodland cottage to see a slip of parchment that had been shoved under her door during the night. " Oh, what now... more Wanted posters for local brigands or someone trying to sell mongbat dung for garden fertiliser.. still, it'll do for lighting the fire with. " As she picked it up and reached for her flint and steel, one word in particular caught her eye... " Wintermoor ". Echoes of the distant past, another shard, another time, and the memories of an old long deserted town on the icy wastes of her homeland crowded in. Pleasure and pain mingled as she remembered the many fascinating hours spent wandering about the abandoned buildings, disturbed only by the rude interruption of a passing orc or two, feasting her eyes on the treasures therein and wondering about the people that used to live there, what their hopes, dreams, fears and fantasies had been, what fierce battles had raged and loves won and lost.

    Cat's head cleared a little now, of the morning bleariness and mixed memories and she started to read the scroll. No... this was not about the Wintermoor she remembered, how could it be - people could travel across the shards, she had heard, or be reborn upon this world of Siege Perilous, but buildings could not. Yet this town the scroll described had things in common with the one she had known - a noble past, built not only of stone and wood and bricks and mortar, but of loyalty, love, courage, curiousity, countless lives and deaths, blood, sweat and tears. And it appeared now that a few hardy souls had stood fast throughout the ebb and flow of time, had built the village anew from the ruins of the old, and were sending out invitations throughout the land for all to come visit, to breathe new life into this place whilst honouring the memory of those that had gone before.

    She bit her lower lip thoughtfully, torn by conflicting emotions. Although she had lived a fair while on this world, she was quiet and unsociable, friendly to most she met, even her killers, but keeping herself to herself. She did not normally venture too far from her snug woodland home except to trade for those things she could not make ( or kill ! ) herself, and to accept orders from the local smiths and tailors. This place, this Myth Wintermoor, was many miles away, in a land that was not very familiar and full of unknown dangers.

    But if someone else had the courage to hold up and renew a whole piece of history, who was she to blanch at a mere journey ? She squared her shoulders resolutely. " I'll go and see the village. " The words seemed huge spoken aloud in the small cottage... talking to oneself was the first sign of madness, so the apothecaries said, maybe she SHOULD get out more... ! a slight grin spreading across her face, she began to pack for the journey - as lightly as possible, the world was full of thieves and murderers after all ;)

    Miranda mused and thought to inform the lass to hug the ore mts. all the way up for close to the Luna town lies sometimes seen crabby crystal fens,Luna forest critter, but once ye dodge past that wee forest, hiding the critter and go on up continually hugging the ore mts. ye will find at the farthest north reaches where MYTH village once stood and begins to stand yet again.

    And just a few tiles up from our wee village homes is that hidden passage way which leads to the well protected by rock formation mountains of the former Wintermoor, a place where the knights knew there were only 2 ways IN for their enemies the Vampires to enter. Much ore mountains protect the area all around with only a few ways in or out for all of us whom dwell way up there.

    Musings of 'the lord of the damned' telling a tale inside the theatre that once stood within the snowy confines, still echo in Miranda's mind right before she saw hues of gray upon her death to the murderous vampires that used to roam the lands on patrols looking for blood.

    But now tis all peaceful out that way, just a few homes up there, yet the many resounding echos of history, shout out from the past, choc full of memories gone by, for many a soul upon Siege Perilous.

    Perhaps more folks should get out more and explore our lands old and new, far away from the guardzones of towns. For some areas still echo the laughter of tankards clashing over ales from the not to distant past.

    Once upon a time and still, a lady shouted " we need more blood" upon Siege as she wrote upon the scrolls of UO Hall and the wee Miranda came across from Chesapeake giggling at the concept that a lonely vampire lady named freja would say...'we need more blood' :) on Siege.

    Twas irony, about as ironic as the wee Miranda hiding at guild meetings from Krystal whilst miss Kat would laugh and say "Miranda ! Please come out of ye hiding Miranda, Krystal will not kill ye here." But the wee Miranda said to feisty Kat lady "yes mam but..old habits die hard, I will always hide from Krystal.

    Tis something about this weird shard and it's citizenry, once drew Miranda and family to come to Siege back in 2004, and hopefully this is where they will remain...with the blessed ironies that are part of the fabric of citizens and wonderous yet small, dsyfunctional family, here upon Siege.

    Ye are more than welcome to visit out there and if ye die whilst trying to maybe mine up all the rich ore and granite, out that way..fear not my home has a wonderous Ankh of Sacrafice for all to use, to become resurrected right by the goza mats lady on my patio of vendors, lies the ankh of Sacrafice ! *beats walking dead all the way back to Luna to get res'd * ;)

    I am pleased with the return of houses in this area... the location is a good one!

    I remember the comings and the going of houses. I have marked this place with a rune.

    Try settling and fill in the area to the North to the tunnel with new recuits. You should
    keep the Mining Guild there your friends.

    A censored census? I would think this should be public knowledge.. unless the trend is too horrible to allow the public eye.

    I would gladly pay you for the knowledge if gold will motivate your intentions. There are not many willing to count houses, and your effort is beyond commendation.

    Good luck Miranda, and be sure to give your 'address' to Patty for her books.

    For many moons I have lived isolated and remote in my Chateau, behind my moat, when not at the shop, but recently neighbours have arrived, three houses side by side and right next door. It seems so strange to go home and see other walls beside my own as I craft there.

    Lord Casca wants the houses counted... but I am sensitive to on going events.
    The number of houses does not equate to the number of players who actually play!
    I have noted that some ppl are down sizing the number of accounts they pay for.
    Most ppl are still playing the game when real life does not get in the way.

    I will finish near the end of the month of May. Malas has been counted already!

    It takes time to move to each house and take a sextant reading, record that, record
    owner's name and move on.

    Also, I do other things too. Damn... Fletching kit quests...

    Nurse Maude have ya checked out my former NW Brit spot?

    If it is still empty it will hold a lg. tower or a 16 x 14 or 17 x 14 tricky placing the customisers, but each are max secureds in sizes that go down there. I held all of those in that same spot, it is right up a few tiles, from Lord British's moat nw corner.

    Yes I checked there. It's only something like 15 x 15. My hospital was there before. I love that area. Just need those extra few tiles.

    Edit ~ Wait I'm thinking I got something like a 17 x 16 there before.

    Aye Miss Maude :)

    Due to that dead tree stump and a rock over a tile or so and legal spacings from Wisteria's home behind...but it is POSSIBLE to get a bigger one there in the customisers than it appears. I have done it so have you once. . it is just TRICKIER than slappin up the lg tower there which even that some have failed to place there but IT GOES THERE.

    I have had that and the big houses there before..just takes time annoyingly patient placement over the terrain there, but BAM it goes up bigger than ya think. :) I think the largest I had there once was an 18 x 15 or something. . surprised me even that time and I never got it to repeat that yet ALWAYS got max secureds there in one form or another. :)

    It is very convenient to downtown brit so close in there save for a wandering lizardman on occasion or a lost skeleton from the cemetary bout once a month worst spawn there is .......COWS ! :)

    Yes, I really liked it there. Thought it was like where a "hospital" should be. On the outskirts of town. I might run out there later and try to place again.

    hehe I have done that before myself, following the rocks and ore mts. up and oft end up in another area with a passageway to snowy valleys and I find it is the one BEFORE or the one before that even. Those hills play tricks on us how they dart and circle around up there, ya think ya finally up there to the very last of the green valleys of the last one and .......find ye ended up in the areas all right before it all. :)

    And ya think surely it can not be even FURTHER up & out..oh my there is way more yet up there ya discover one day. :) Weird how the dev. team made most of Malas one big circle game, of hidden passageways many of em interconnected to parts we can not find even till we enter caves, to enter more of the hidden places in one big circling circle game, goose chase. :)

    Most of my chrs. can also pop gates so if ya do not find it send me a pm msg here on Stratics, so I can meet you in this world in a town of ye choice then and gate ye on up there.

    Well that was very nice, after a lot of mountain hugging ( makes a change from trees ;) ) and managing to overshoot the place by several Sosarian miles, I did eventually wind up here ! lo and behold I most fortunately met several members of QZ's family, including Miranda and Hughes, who graciously gave me a tour of the various homes and a good game of mongbat darts ! Very enjoyable and well worth the trek. Excellent vendors too - let's see if I can get some more shopping in before I head for bed !
