OK, I realize it's probably for bag-ball or something boring like that. What I don't understand is why there isn't a major arena (either a large Amphitheatre, or Colosseum) anywhere to be seen in UO. UO is community driven, yet the only place we really gather together to sit around is at the Luna Bank, and there we pretty much do nothing but spam buy/sell. I'd really enjoy watching some chariot races, jousting events, wrastlynge, shuriken duels, etc. We can't do this, however, as there seems to really be no support. I do understand that we can customize our houses to act as such arenas, but we're limited in scope, and our obscure locations are not prime candidates for hosting exciting events like a recreation of a Naval Battle! I allude to the theory that the Colosseum in Rome was filled with water for mock Naval Battles. An amphitheatre would be just as great, as perhaps to encourage the artistic folks to put on some performances for us all to see. So let's blast some rock, and build us some cultural centers that every civilization has recognized as being socially necessary.
