    I want a shop of my own, where I can craft on the premises instead of at the bank, put vendors up or take them down whenever I feel like it and preferably within reach of a guardzone so my customers stand a better chance of surviving long enough to purchase.

    Until a couple of weeks ago it wasn't possible, now it is, I have a new char to hold it.

    Question one: How much do I need to save up (current funds 12.8 mil)

    Question two: does anyone know anything about the house called 'Jimmy's hole' owned by 'Meaz' behind Makoto moongate?

    Question three: would Myon part with the shop at Minoc moongate, and if yes, for how much?

    Question four: Would Meph part with the shop at Yew moongate? That's the one I'd really, really like and I think about it every time I pass the empty vendors there on my way to my full ones. But I suspect I'll never see as many gp as that one would cost :(
    My main reason for asking about that one is so that I can get a 'no' or a '10 zillion gp' answer so I can stop thinking about it tbh. Until I *know* it's impossible I'll keep hoping.

    Hi Petra

    I can let you have the Red Skeleton, the small hut at Trinsic gate, the only one on the level of the gate. I can clear it out, remove the vendor that is there now, if you send me a design you made on test, I can build it exactly as you wish, clear the access and friends list...

    The only thing I cannot do is sell it to you, I have sworn that it will be in DTA hands until the server is shut down.

    For you it would be free of course, no vendor fees naturally.

    Let me know if you like it.

    Kind regards

    Thanks for the offer, but it's a place of my own I'm looking for, where I can place another vendor as and when I want one.

    As a 'tenant' I couldn't want for a better landlord than Mo, but if I want to expand it can take days for our online time to coincide. That applies with pretty much anyone else, including your good self. I really appreciate the offer, it's just not what I want right now.

    I noticed the spot next to WyRms Homare home has gone vacant.

    I don't know about all those other shops, but 10 zillion gp would definitely buy you the house right in front of the moonglow moongate.

    I think Petra is looking for her own legacy, and in order to do that she must find her own spot and not take over an already legendary shop or spot. The moonglow gate is perfect, the customers can shop right there at the moongate without interference from reds, and she will breathe life back into moonglow.
