    Started to make vendor books. It was easy to make a Luna vendor one, not so easy for the non-Luna one. I looked everywhere, but I might have missed a few. I did fill a book up (barely) but don't expect much out of the non-Luna shop ones. I have a few vendors out, but I still have a few in Luna and they have runes to my shop (Krabshack Bar n Grill - E of Brit). Feel free to stop by and have a drink! When I get more product on my vendors, will start dropping some runes here and there in Luna, Brit, and maybe New Haven.

    I'm still trying to build some skills like inscription and smithing, so I am doing a lot of mining. It was so much easier to get the colored ingots you needed before they changed mining. I had a book for every ore. When I go to mine these days, usually have to settle for everything and use a prospector tool depending on what it is. I'm thinking about training my smith's warrior skills a bit more, maybe just take on Ellies using gargoyle picks. That sounds a bit less boring than just mining, but I don't mind.

    Yesterday, I swear I visited every house on the server... there are some nice houses out there. I especially like the Wolves tavern and some of the Guild houses. Some of the UMP houses are pretty cool too. The Tokuno houses are always nice. It's just sad there aren't more non-Luna shops out there.
     
  2. Oh I agree with you.......
    My vendors are in Luna for the simple reason is easier for players shopping, maybe they will find what they need there....I use to keep all the vendor shops but since so many players have left and worst of all some vendors are not stocked I quit updating books. :(
    Maybe you will set a new trend and the players houses out side of Luna will now start up their vendors !!!
    I know what you mean about mining....I always use a gargoyle pick to break the bordem of mining and add a little excitement to mining lol
    Need anything let me know .....

    I was at your crabshack that other day while looking at real estate. Nice area that I hope to move into soon.

    I like what you did with the place! I cannot wait to throw darts/knives against ya. :)

    Thanks. I like it, definately better than my old house even though it was bigger (Mosiah's Madness). The old one had not much style, but I didn't design it. It was still home though, having more space is a plus. There is a lot of real estate I saw out there in my travels ripe for the taking. Malas has some good spots open. I chose my spot because it was near my last place. Not much spawn plus you can fish out in front of your house. Peace and quiet is always nice. I would rather have my house near Moonglow, but they filled in a lot of it with trees, it's nearly impossible to build any decent sized house around that area anymore. Last year that's where my house was. It was way too small. It was on the south edge of the isle. The house I have now is just right and perfect for me.

    Planning on growing some plants soon, now I know where to get the peculiar seeds and such. Need to get alchemy up so I can make some natural dyes. I just remember Alchemy was the first skill I GM'ed because back then kegs sold pretty good, but the regs you burn through is unreal. Glassblowing was always cool. I guess you have to have that to make empty silver serpent venom vials for the dyes. Kinda reminds me of making potion kegs. Tinker this, carpentry that back and forth. Haven't worked on carp yet. Started to raise tinkering when I have extra ingots. I want some chimes and some paper lanterns.

    I like my house within the Ter Mur Guardzone....

    There's a couple empty spots nearby within RivenMyst if you all are looking for nice space.

    Eventually, when I get done training my characters up to compensate for recent changes, I'll reopen my BOD store.

    I only found one shop (outside of Luna) that was selling Bods. I did find a maybe 3 or 4 shops that just was using vendors for Bod storage. I still made runes to them though. You never know if they might want to trade certain ones even though they don't have them for sale.
