    HAPPENINGS IN SAFE HAVEN
    By: Lupe
    Long ago, before we travelled between facets, the crossroads of Britain was... an interesting place. It was often a magnet for new players, with a swamp to the west, a desert to the northwest, and tons of spawn. So the PK's waited in the shadows of the guard tower and cut down the unsuspecting kids who stopped to read the signs or kill a troll.
    But eventually a benevolent force arrived and stopped the slaughter, and as time passed, a blossoming township grew. Powerful players patrolled the roads and the borders of the town from bandits. Vendors sprang up and lined the roads, and then, greener pastures showed up, surrounded by a big, thick, sandstone wall.
    Fear not though, a new era has dawned, and the township of Safe Haven is once again showing signs of life! Ariana Riverwind has hired some merchants to sell her wares. Freja's castle is now host to some vendors and my own home, by the healer's wing of the guard tower has a "Potluck Commodity" vendor, as well as all manner of tools, and Carpenter's, Tinker's, and Tailor's repair deeds!
    Come take a look at what we have to offer, and stop by often, let us foster the rebirth of a piece of Siege history!

    MOONGLOW ZOO
    Mating Night is this Sunday. Plan to attend early and help the animals get ready.

    KATTASROPHE INTERVIEW
    by DeadBob
    Katt began UO at the age of six when her parents (Hi Victoria :) wanted to play a game with her.
    Like most of us, she came for the game and stayed for the people. "The people I like most are kind, funny and always look out for others. Some are the best friends I ever had."
    Katt also writes plays. "When i grow up, i want to become a famous author. I love to write and i hope to have a career in it."

    NEW FISH RESTAURANT
    The Cod Piece
    Serving Zento diners with live eel, oysters and the chef's special, rooster-in-a-pouch, the Cod Piece restaurant has something for everyone. "Ladies Night is always big for us," says Chef Justin Cider. "They love to stretch things into the late hours of the night."

    PROSE CORNER
    Siege Pixel Estates by Grimlex
    So, it's a hot day...crawling around on the even hotter dirt wanting a drink. A drink of what, you ask...?
    Looking into the blazing sun holding a bottle of moonshine. Eyeing the booze then taking a blissful swig of that hot warm steaming creation of God.
    Ah so refreshing that it makes you wonder how you got that liquor. Well simple you bought it at the vendors on your way home or where you plan on passing out.
    Vendors what are they, where are they. Well they're not everywhere, yet they are at the places you will find when you want that hot steamy boiling bottle of dreams. Luna, Zento, Newmagincia and Yew you will find a lot of junk. I mean non Alcoholic beverage items. If you want the best brew you're gonna have to shop around.
    What's in your glass? Cheers!

    LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
    I've heard it said that some suits are too high priced. So that got me thinking...are they? If I, were to go and buy all the materials needed to make a horned leather 100LRC, MR6, LMC 40, and all 70's, it would cost me roughly 240k. Many do not realize how much work and TIME often goes into making a suit.
    Even with 120 imbue, having the garg bonus, and using the queens forge, you still have very low % chances once you get to that last imbue. Meaning lost materials.
    So my hat's off to players like Tina Tink, who only charge a measly 300k! May more crafters on this fine shard be as generous as she!
