    As some of you may know, for the past year or so my husband and I have been the caretakers of the Grog Guildhall. This place holds a special place in our hearts because the plot has long been attached to my family. I'll give some history.

    The plot was once a tower, owned on one of my mother's spare accounts. Up until that point, when Grog was 'young' to Catskills, he had never had such a large plot. When my mother and stepfather left Ultima, she had him come to the tower, and gave it to him. About a year ago, a friend of ours who had been holding it gave it to us. It wasn't until then that I found out the history from my mom.

    Unfortunately, with things as they are, we have to close an account. My mother has offered to take the hall back if we need it, but I thought that I would first offer it to someone who is still playing.

    The only stipulation is that it cannot be 'touched'. It can be used to storage with a few chests here and there, but we've tried out best to maintain it exactly as it has been.

    Please PM me if you're interested.

    It is definitely a part of shard history. If I opened another account, my wife would kill me though.

    Wonder if the EMs could help? Maybe offer it to Kasaven or Cernunnos with the same stipulations?

    That's a good idea, I never thought of that. Kinship I believe has a building that is owned by the game, perhaps they'd be willing to do the same for Grog since he was such a part of Catskills lore.

    Have you tried to do some fund raisers and gather the UO gold to buy time cards to maintain the acct?

    How much would one month of game time cost with UO gold? Isn't it something crazy like 25mill?

    I would never come to anyone asking for money for an account. I know how that can come across sometimes and I wouldn't ever want it to turn into a point on contention. I have a guildmate who has offered to become caretaker temporarily until we find someone who is willing to devote themselves to it.

    Well, I just recently reactivated my account from a while ago, and have no house as of yet. I am working on getting the funds for one, but I wouldn't mind holding your house til you got back. Basically All I would use it for is basic storage of materials to work my characters up, and I would change nothing as per your request.

    My ign is Archill if you would like to talk to me to get to know me better as I realize no one knows me at the moment, but I thought I would offer to build up my trustworthiness and make some friends in the process.

    I do have one spare account that does not have a house on it at this moment. After your guildy can no longer hold it I would be willing to hold it for around 6 months. After that I would need to pass the torch to someone else. So just let me know. I wouldn't use it for anything, even storage. Would be a honor to help preserve the memory of Grog.
