    I have almost emptied my junk house just off East Umbra bridge. It will soon be leveled. I will build a teleporter house there. Any thoughts?

    Do bother-

    A good teleporter house would be great. You could just allow whoever wanted to add a teleporter to do so- lock down a book with a location description.

    I expect many merchants and guilds would want to participate.

    (I bought a set- totally fantastic item)

    Don't bother. Make it a house for moderators and admin, because thats all that will be left on Siege before long, thanks to you lot.

    Well, first of all this post isn't/wasn't about Petra, but since you ask, as a person, I have nothing against her. I do, however, take issue with mods and admins of a fansite doing things that are detrimental to our shard. Especially in its current, fragile state.

    Well back on topic, any major house teleporter home should have the house teleporter tiles, placed a tile or two INSIDE the patio or porch which they will be put upon. Probably 2 tiles in. :)

    Before I even knew what these tile were or looked like, when I logged onto Ches. to check out the one major alliance teleporter tile house, I darted onto the home's property, home loaded up but I suddenly found I went from Homare & was in felucca elsewhere in a nano second or less at an allianced home fel side, no biggie being in fel, only the surprise to be teleported so fast barely seen the home in Homare before I was scooted off the property to another house, cuz I had stepped onto one of those tiles, unseen. For someone not yet familiar with the tiles, nor even there in game appearance yet, it was quite a surprise at the time. :)

    IE we dart onto someone's patio set up, but may not even see the patio till we actually step on it as it loads up for us.

    Kinda nice since the house teleporter tiles work so rapidly for us all in teleporting us, but perhaps better to have them placed a couple tiles off the front boundry, and not right on the edge, as we step onto a home. :)

    And yeh every tile should probably have a book raised up to tell folks where they are being taken, like a bus station, clearly marked, just in case they wish to go to GIL town for example over Barter town or Serp. Hold over Brit. or wherever.

    I admit it.

    I hacked into the UO servers, and now any time a poll is posted a hellcat is spawned blaze with an insured ornie.

    Aside from that one, minor change though, I've tried to keep the damage to a minimum.

    Oh, except for that tame pink dreadmare with the stats of the harrower that dupes blessed +25 scrolls.

    And the aqueduct, sanitation, and roads. Irrigration.... Some medicine, education, and health. And can't forget the wine.

    But apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Stratics mods done for you?

    I tore the building that was on that plot down. What would you like to see a teleporter hub? Any thoughts will be appreciated.

    Amazing and frustrating as well.

    When I myself look at the co operation player run towns created be they [friends or foes] to make their shards' connected player run towns, I am amazed.

    When I look at the player run town banners made for each town at their entry, by Ems or whomever I am amazed.

    When I read about this or that event EM run, all over the forums of other shards...or when I see player run establishments connected by their fairgrounds by Luna...

    I can not help but to also become frustrated, and utter the same simple words...time and time again...

    What about Siege Perilous ?

    Are we as players here part of our SP solution, or part of our problem,
    in that this shard does not get the attention, nor overcoming our own on shard players' issues or differences to create that same shard wide co operation, other shards manage to get or do or to overcome amongst themselves, even with their foes, that Siege Perilous also, so rightly deserves, via ourselves and via EMs and via dev. team ?

    All my accts. are up for renewal this summer, and I ponder and debate amongst my *selves* of chrs. will I renew ? Will Siege, will WE here get our mutual SP act together to improve Siege, will we pitch in to save Siege, or slash its wrists of each other and selves of this shard, to let it die further, and will we or EA even care ? What about Siege Perilous ? A question I keep hoping to get some answers for. :sad4:

    Sorry, but I am feeling bummed out this week at the state we seem to be in here, or have brung ourselves to, on Siege.

    That said, I have a lot of hedges I bought over time, from the Iantown Hedgemaze that ya may wish to incorporate, at the Siege Central Station in & around it's borders at ye Umbra home. You can have em, if ya want em.
    :(

    Kelmo,
    If you get this going I will sponsor a tile linked to my vendor house at the SW corner of Zento (next to Ginsu's)

    My vendors are nothing special but Ginsu does a good job and there are a couple of active merchants in the neighborhood.

    I would like to see tiles to houses near the major dungeons, LL passages, a moogate, player towns, places you need a boat to get to if you cant gate, etc
