What places are interesting to folks? Please post your examples, with locations and shard. I'm posting this because after reading the threads on Abyss houses and Magincia houses (thanks Tina!), and seeing the Serpent's Cross Tavern posting on the Atl forums (and all of the postings about games in which player housing in non-existant), I started wondering about what players look for in way of their favorite establishments to visit. I believe that the average establishment can be split into, or occupy, four categories: rune library/museum Vendor mall or shop tavern or bar available resource hut/skill gain These categories have been created to fill niche markets in the Ultima environ: people have to get one from one place to another. Gates and portals cover banks/moongates, and portals dungeons. But anything else, such a spawn points, other player establishments and points of interest (PoI), need runes. I'm in love with Goodman's and the Blue Crane Society on Atl. Because these houses offer lots of content for a relatively small space, they seem to also act as librarys/museums. Obviously, NPC vendors don't sell everything, or can't match competitive prices, and so vendor malls are important stops. With barkeeps and the custom house bar tiles this is a pretty average addon, and an excuse to make a house public. as with Abyss houses, I'll visit a house just to use their portal/house tiles. Also, I've sought places for crates to GM lockpicking. But then there are the downsides: Once a player has a favorite rune house, they're not likely to change. Makes upstarting nearly impossible. Lune and script searching has made vendor loyalty go by by, Nobody wants to drink alone in an empty pub If you don't have the right add-ons, your house isn't worth visitng. What other kinds of establishments do you frequent? I've tinkered with the idea of opening a poetry house on ATL, as it's my RL profession (i don't suck! I swear), but I can't see too many folks showing up. (though this wont stop me, as its the same way in RL. Look out Atl!) The Golden Fang Casino , northeast of Luna on Atl, is great, I've enjoyed their chicken lizard fights multiple times. So what other places are fun to visit? Is it worth it to build an 18x18x4 PvP arena in fel? Would folks show up? I've heard of maze houses, have these worked on heavily populated shards? Is there, truthlfully, anything else that seems to draw folks when the proprietor isn't around? And here's a suggestion: who would show up to a weekend night comedy club? If it was good?
