[NEWS] Killian The Royal Surveyor Scouting Town Sites

Discussion in 'UO Legends' started by a Rabid Chipmunk, Jan 10, 2011.

  1. Early yesterday morning I recieved a report about the Royal Surveyor, Killian, making his way around the realm. Aparently he was scouting prospective locations for new towns! It was Killian's hard work that made The Mystic City a recognized township just recently, and now he has been given a few new areas to scout out, in order to determine if they too are worthy of becomming "official".


    With the official news now out of the way, I would like to invite the governing bodies of any current or future towns to tell us a little about their settlements. Maybe in doing so you can recruit a few more like minded people to share your towns and cities with.

    And for those of you who may want to start your own settlement, here is what I was quoted.

    "The Settlement of Ta'b'gnom the Mongbat King"​

    Currently we have enough homes for Village/Hamlet status, but I personally like the title Settlement better, especially living in Felucca. The settlement is located on the shore line east of dungeon Wrong and currently boasts; a Newspaper, a Town Square, a Town Hall, an Arena, and Docks.


    The citizenry of this settlement support the crown, though we don't actively campaign for her causes, or follow strictly to her laws. But if anyone asks we support her decisions 100%!

    If on your travels you would like to visit our settlement, it should be fairly obvious which houses are a part of our group, because we all contracted the same builder. Homes are elegant in design yet utilize local materials giving them a very earthy feel, stone and wood.

    Lastly for those that would like a brief history on how the town got started and got its name. My brothers and I were on a treasure hunt a few years ago, attempting to decode a particularly difficult map, when all of a sudden our pack animals bolt! We chased after them, because they had all the gear we would need to complete our adventure, and found them hypnotized by a green crystal poking out from the ground.

    Well treasure is treasure right? We tried to pluck the crystal from the ground but discovered that it was larger than it appeared. So we set to work excavating it, after a days work, the crystal was finally unearthed, and it was massive. An emerald the likes of which no one has every seen, or ever will again (but I am getting ahead of myself).

    That night we built camp and celebrated our newly found fortune, with more than a crate of Royal Guard Brand Ale... and were quickly unconscious.

    When we awoke, much to our horror, our spectacular emerald was a shattered mess, only a few shards left on the ground where it had once stood. In its place a moongate unlike any I had ever seen before stood, pulsing with energy. And on the nearby grass watching us, stood a giant red mongbat. My brother and I though upset at our monetary loss, laughed at the giant beast, because the mongbat is the "special" cousin of the monster family.

    The creature's eyes glowed with displeasure, which he made clear thru some sort of magic, neither myself nor my brothers could move a muscle. Instead we heard in our minds, "I am Ta'b'gnom the mongbat king" you are now bound to this land and to me. Serve me well and I will treat you accordingly."

    We have not seen the creature since, but we take no chances with magic, and decided to build our homes here, and the area has flourished.
