    I was reading some Alternate reality game documentation , and came across the idea of a Tent to "log off" a game, which instantly brought back some Ultima Online memories.

    Does anyone here remember those glorious "Tents" days ?
    Hah, now talk about old school.
    That and building a small house on the rooftop of a Tower.

    Both :) Blue and green tent deeds were quite rare, until duping became prominent. A lg tower with a small wooden was still on Chessy up until about a year ago in Bucs den.

    Good times. Killing people for their house was the best part though. :)

    LOL...for some reason when I read this, I thought of the scene in Field of Dreams where Jame's Earl Jones' character grabs the pesticide can and starts spritzing it in Kevin Costner's direction, saying "Out! Back to the sixties! Back! There's no place for you here in the future! Get back while you still can!"

    So...

    Back! Back you old geezer! And take your tent with you!

    :D

    Tents would be pretty cool for Siege if they would not crash someone's house on another shard...
