    Posted my support, I may be fairly new to the shard myself but I'll put up a 18x18 for a few new players if it means more people on to play. Everyone else who can should join in! If we get enough people on by the lure of being able to keep their other houses and have a place to stay here maybe we could bring some life back! Not like hoarding 10 keeps for yourself on an empty shard is very fun :) (if my count is correct, we have about 50x the number of houses as we have active players on siege....)

    edit: oh, my icq number is 126746725 if you find a group of homeless people who want to try it out.

    I am going to add a word of caution to our housing new players, [outside of NEW guild and it's unique set up], into our own homes, as well.

    I once ran a barracks on Chesapeake and housed 10 homeless folks.

    NP for the most part, I used an empty spare home and gave them each 2 chests of their own to stow their stuffs.. or 250 lockdown items per player in 2 chests each.

    At first these were set to *friends* and no one pilfered the others's stuffs at all for quite some time.

    Then one person DID go into all the other new ones chests, and took their stuffs of value.

    I issued them all their own keys, no copy key even for myself as home owner, for their own chests to keep out any other jerks, from pilfering their chests.

    I banned the jerk once we found out whom of them, it really was. Stealin from trusted folks INSIDE a home to me is wrong, stealin out of backpacks as a thief is game ok, but not in a house where every one is sharing, together alike, like an army barracks !

    Then of the 9 honest ones remaining, 4 placed homes and were gone and took their treasures with them. But 2 of em never logged back again. Thus I ended up with 4 chests belonging to 2 people whom I gave keys to, to lock up their chests, didnt make a copy for myself being honest sort, gave them their chest keys to even protect them from ME. :)

    Not like I ever pilfer but in the end, that empty house got stuck with 250 items x 2 persons that never logged back in again ever...or 500 items my house was stuck with on the item count list. Luckily it was a spare empty house, but ya GOT to have rules and some END contract of timing, like a month or so, or ya may get stuck with someones stuffs that may never log back in again, and ya also have to establish some way that no one ELSE in the house can enter the storage chests of the *other* homeless ones, your are housing, too.

    I am still looking for the return of the person I gave 2 storage chests to, a lil over a week ago to log back in to reclaim her pretties and treasures from her first IDOC on Siege. I hope she returns....I gave her her own keys tellin her TRUST NO ONE, so she could lock up her 2 chests, herself, :) sooooooooo even I can not enter her storage chests. Those chests will remain till she returns *soon* I hope to claim her stuffs or to resume playing on Siege.

    My own stuff in there, what little it is, is behind doors, doors and chests, set to OWNER only, so even my alts can not enter Joesef's rooms. :)

    IF ya run a barracks/inn/youth hostel etc. of any sort ...just be cautious for whatever whomever whom we do not know at all, and try to set up some kinda safe guards for the others in there and for what little of YOUR OWN stuff may be in the empty home too, and keep tabs on ye house item count, should they opt to possibly never return, ya may be stuck with their items locked up in a chest in your home only they can enter.

    GOOD LUCK ! :)

    Kelmo, I will help with any items you need. I cannot guarantee in-game time to help with adventures or anything, but almost any supplies I can provide. Send me a PM, I rarely turn on ICQ anymore.

    Wasn't how this worked changed long ago? Friends can lock down their own chests and iirc can't unlock others (haven't tested this, could have sworn that's how it worked though, i did spend a lot of time on freeshards the last 4 years so i may be getting that confused). Owner can unlock anyone's chest, and if it's locked by key as well all you need is someone with lockpicking skill. I'd say though, as a rule, don't log in for 6 months or send some sort of message that you'll be away till august or something, and your stuff ends up in the community chest.

    :) Aye that is about how I had to do it with a couple of those folks in my Chesapeake newb barracks...set down the rule if ya go missing and do not log in for a long time like weeks months, your stuff goes to the entire guild storage chests. Also ran some guild houses and guild restocks and yeh it never fails someone dumps a buncha stuff and then..........vanish !! Makes a mess too of guilds' restock houses item counts !

    Just sayin' some folks no word nothing poof they vanish into oblivion for forever and we stuck holding their stuffs. rolleyes: Being honest we try to hang onto it for them but yeh one's patience vanishes after about a half a yr. of not seeing em bother to log in or clue ya in at all in any way shape or form.

    And it happens !

    TnT is willing to sponsor some new players! Just ask for Kat/Goldie/Dominatrix or any other TnT member in game via General chat!

    And if you are not interested in factions, TNA is our non-faction guild and you can get hooked up there through anyone in TnT or TNA.

    Hi , i offered my support for new players and even a home for them. Ok i know its not a keep or castle but it seems on this board you either have to be a stratics legend or someone who posts everyday to get someone to respond to you. Seems most posts fall on def ears unless you are in the leet crowd. Anyway, my offer will still stand.

    Morgana made a request in the UHall thread that she needed a few things and I responded. It took us a couple days to hook up, but we finally did. After we talked for a bit, I accessed her to one of my houses so she would have a place work some of her skills and such. I can assure you my leetness had nothing to do with it! lol :)

    IMO, the best way we can help any newcomers is to look for players to help. Most of us can spot someone new a mile away. Introduce yourself, ask questions, ask them if they need anything. Another way to help is to log into General/Global Chat... Respond to requests for help and/or periodically ask if any newcomers need assistance. I see Shalimar doing that on a daily basis. Lots of times there is no answer, but she eventually finds someone in need! All it takes is the desire to help and persistence. :thumbup1:
