    Despite the fact that Nabin was an acquaintance of mine, I was searching for someone else who was selling a Luna house to build my dream museum. This, of course, was nothing personal against him. I just did not have the kind of gold he was asking for. I watched as the Luna spots came and went, all the while eying that lovely 12x12 just inside the north gate.

    As luck would have it, I ran into Sir Kelek at a friend's house. We chatted a bit about rares and I shared my dream with him. Sir Kelek suggested I speak with Nabin again and explain my intentions for opening a Napa History Museum. Having seen the initial asking price of the spot I wanted, I was not hopeful.

    To make a long story short, Nabin gave me an incredibly generous discount to help me build my dream. So, it is with a huge smile on my face that I announce the upcoming Napa History Museum! =)

    Thanks, guys! =)

    I have the plot built up just the way I want it. A kind shop owner named Tim Taylor and my guild mate, Brian Blackstone, helped me get all of the bronze granite I needed for the tables. My other guild mate, Dude, built them for me and I set up them up. Right now, I'm just going through what I have and trying to figure out where to put it and what else should be in the museum.

    So far, this is the layout...

    1st Floor: Old School Items (Bloody Bandage, Bounty Head, etc.)
    2nd Floor: Event Items (Napa specific)
    3rd Floor: Holiday Items (1997 Christmas Bag, 1999 Valentine's Day Bag, etc.)



    Contributions and Donations:

    If anyone would like to lend an item temporarily, please contact me and I will set up a meeting with a third party to monitor the exchange. Your name and item will be added to the Contributors book as long as your item is displayed.

    If anyone would like to donate gold or an item permanently, please contact me to set up a meeting. Your name and donation will be added to the Donations book.

    Otis Firefly was kind enough to donate a genuine Castle Deed to the museum earlier today.

    Thanks again, Otis! =)
