    I was wondering how many active player ran taverns we have left on our shard? If you or your guild runs one could you provide some information here.

    1. Name and location of the tavern (The location should state if its in Tram, Fel, Tokuno Islands or Malas. Hve the Cords listed if you want to give them out, and well known locations near it.)

    2. Day and time it is open (This means day of the week and time am/pm and converted to EST that it is open for business.)

    3. Public or Private Tavern (I know some players prefer to keep their taverns open to certain group alone. Such as certain RP guilds.)

    4. Role Playing Environment
    (Casual: People can chat out of character and do not need to be a active member of the Catskills RP community.
    Moderate: You prefer visitors to remain in character, but will not mind if they slip once in a while. Some knowledge of the Catskills RP community is helpful. Heavy: Characters will stay in character at all times and must know the ongoing RP story lines on the shard.)

    5. Tell a bit about the tavern (A little about its history, the owner, bartenders and general layout, theme and amenities that make it special)

    6. Special Events (Does your tavern have a bards night once a month, or a dart tournament, or any events like that at all?)

    7. Pictures of the tavern (If you want you can also provide a picture or 2 of the tavern for other players to see.)

    The reason I am asking for this information is I feel some players might be interested in getting involved in Role Playing but do not know where the taverns are that players gather at anymore or what nights they can go there.
    Hope to hear from you tavern owners with the requested information so we can rebuild Stratics Listings of Catskills Taverns.

    There isn't a tavern in the Freehold of Roses, however we are a strictly rp community (citizens will always be in character while in the freehold). Grey Manor is open to the pubic, and houses a library containing books on the history of some of the roleplay on Catskills over the past three years, along with other works of writing from players. The Gypsie camp is a local gathering spot though; is not a staffed establishment. These along with Winter Guard house the citizens of the Freehold of Roses.

    Jolly Roger Inn

    Type: Public tavern / pirate headquarters, moderate roleplaying
    Facet: Trammel
    Coordinates: 180°S, 21° 35'E
    Owner: Hawkeye Pike

    The Jolly Roger Inn is located on a sandy peninsula close to the Shrine of Honor, south of Trinsic. From the Trinsic moongate head straight south until you reach the coast. Now follow the coastline in western direction. After passing the Shrine of Honor you will get straight to a big beach.

    This place is frequented by roleplaying folk, and it is host to regular player-run events. The next event, the Pirate Conspiracy (a series of events actually), will continue by August 30th. Details about events will always be published on our website (link see below).
    Right next to the Jolly Roger Inn, the Black Market is located. This is where regular in-game trading and auctioning will take place. The kick-off is planned for September.

    The United Pirates [UP] was the first pirate guild in Ultima Online ever. It was founded in July 1998 on the Catskills shard by Hawkeye Pike and Hook. The guild stone was placed inside Hook's tent at the coastline east of Vesper. (At that time you had to place a guild stone if you wanted to create a guild. Tents were the cheapest way of player housing. A tent contained one strongbox accessible to the owner.)

    The pirate life proved to be a lot of fun. More and more members joined the crew. In November 1998, the United Pirates acquired a good real estate at the beach of a bay east of Vesper. This allowed them to finally build a big tavern as headquarters, and it was named The Jolly Roger Inn. (In the beginning, items could not even be locked down in houses. Crafting new furniture was a daily business.) A lot of events were regularly held there, like treasure hunts, duels, fight nights, sailing contests and gambling nights.

    But the times changed. Somewhen in 2002, the crew of the United Pirates slowly disbanded. Many pirates had vanished, never to be seen again. Even the Jolly Roger Inn was finally lost. Britannia became a safe and peaceful place again, for a couple of years.

    In December 2007, Hawkeye Pike was washed ashore again in Vesper. After 6 years he had finally returned to Britannia. In March 2008, he decided to try and re-unite the pirates of Catskills once more. Hawkeye reestablished the brethren of pirates to pillage towns, mug landlubbers and conquer the sea. He built the Jolly Roger Inn at a perfect location: The sandy beach of a small lagoon south of Trinsic. Other pirates soon settled in this area, which became the headquarters of the United Pirates.
