    Love the look of the tavern, and the center. Of course Aedon would wonder what the heck a movie theatre is.
    Keep up the good work.

    I would like to introduce the Vesper Market House. It serves as Vesper Market Event House (Last Saturday of each month), Vesper Auction House when needed and as a more personal office for the Governor. The house is located just off the Vesper Beach. 53 0 N - 102 39 E

    There is mailbox out front for the Vesper Woodman Event held every month. There is also an area to hold your mounts and a Hitching Post if you wanted to stable your mount or pet. There is also a crystal portal for your convenience.
    upload_2015-7-26_14-11-36.png

    This is the area used for the Vesper Market Event. Vendors are placed in here for the Event. There is a Forge/Anvil and Soulforge for those that need to fashion their wares. There is also a Bartender placed for all to enjoy and nice cool drink or maybe something a little harder ;)
    upload_2015-7-26_14-19-11.png

    Second Floor is used as the Vesper Auction House.
    upload_2015-7-26_14-21-8.png

    The Third Floor is used as Offices for the Current Governor of Vesper.
    upload_2015-7-26_14-22-39.png

    I hope to see you all at Vesper market Events or the Vesper Woodman Events.

    And my dear friend Jennifer was glad to have her house go to you Lord Bytor, as she remembers you fondly from days long gone.

    She used to play my "daughter" (aka progeny) as Lady Nemesis and Ate was her LGM Smith/crafter back in the day. She and Lady Morgasse (who is now in K^S with that character, real name Sherri) both played my progeny.

    They wanted more PvM than they wanted RP, thus I sent them to our most valued allies in K^S.

    Glad to have been the one to decorate it for Mare and General.

    Some new additions to the Vesper Cultural Center.

    Main floor I have added 2 new books(blue) I recently acquired. They are Yorik's Log & Travis' Journey. I am also going to highlight, The Sentinel, Volume #1(red). It won the Catskills writing contest held back in January of this year. Blitzkrieg of K^S wrote it. It is a very good story and well worth the read.

    upload_2015-8-5_2-14-23.png

    On the 2nd floor I have added the New Global Arc Drops. They are all set to public so you can hear the sounds they make by double clicking on them.
    * The Emerald of the Rondorin Empire along with 3 books. One book is written by EM Barnaby which gives the fiction behind the Event story. The other two books are The Ikuchi written by Tsumura & Funa Yurei written by Junkichi which really go into detail about the story line.
    * Sapphire Eye of the Dungeon Doom
    * Lesser Wolfgang Ruby along with 3 books. My Son written by Wolfgang - The Black Compendium written by Mondain & Words to a Stranger written by Owain

    upload_2015-8-5_2-21-32.png

    I have also added a few of the Slim the Fence rewards from the Trader quest.

    It's been awhile. I have had a very busy year.

    Today we highlight the Christmas Museum in Vesper. The Christmas Museum is located just off the Vesper Beach. There is a crystal portal located out front for your convenience when you are through visiting. There is also a Steward out front that will provide you with a rune back to here. I am always adding new items when I get them. Thank you for visiting :)

    The Vesper Lighthouse. Hopefully when the New King / EM arrives, I can work with him / her to make this little area into a Park / Picnic area :)

    Looking forward to seeing them. House design and decoration are two of the best aspects of UO.
