Unloading House - Closing Account PLEASE READ

    Dear LS folk -
    Lately economic hard times have forced me to decide that I can no longer afford the subscription fee so i am closing down my account. I'm putting my valuables in the bank and on my person in the hope that they will still be there when I come back to LS, and I plan to! The only unfortunate and messy business I have is that I have a premium placed grandfathered house that is only planning on getting more valuable as it is on the beach in Magincia, where the devs have already announced will be getting some "love" in the new year. If my account disappears this house will disappear forever and it is in a no-place zone. Already the large house on the beach is gone, and I don't want player housing to disappear from this area. It is a small house, 6x9, cozy and a challenge for players who collect lots of stuff, but perfect for players who prefer quiet and unique areas. At present there are still spirits which are a hassle getting in and out the door, but it makes it fun, too.
    THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART -> I have only two days before my payment is due and I am de-linking the bank account before then. As EA won't be getting payment I assume they will shut the account down post-haste which gives me TWO DAYS to get rid of this house. IT IS ABSOLUTELY FREE, though I will attach a caveat to this transaction that: One - you will keep the house standing and not abandon it without passing it on, and if you do, because I don't care if you sell it for a crap ton of gold or RL money, the buyer must agree to keep the house standing as well, and so on. If I'm playing in eleven years I want that house to be there, case closed. AND Two - if you are good natured and at some point in the future I announce that I am playing again and suddenly you decide you would rather have an anonymous 18x18 in Malas or something you come find me and let me make an offer on the house again, as I am only abandoning it because I have to.
    If you are a player with multiple accounts or don't already have a house on LS, or can take a house just for any reason please take this one. I expect if I begin playing again it will be in the new year, probably by the end of January and if you can even hold onto it till then there would be no end to my gratitude.

    To my friends, I have had no lack of love and generosity on LS and I will miss you should our paths never cross again, but given the nature of the game, they most likely will. :)
    - Dyllon, Therogon, etc.

    MORE INFO - You can find me at the house in Magincia or BOB when I'm playing. When I'm not pls email me [email protected] if you are planning on seriously taking the house. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND CONSIDERATION
  2. I'll not say I'm going to miss you, Dyllon, because I know you'll be back soon. I do hope you find someone reliable and with your dedication to take your house.
    Best wishes til we meet again :hug:

    I suggest tapping Nabin... that guy owns sooo many houses. And he's reliable... I sent him a PM with a link to this post. THough I'm not sure if he plays on other shards.. I hope he does.

    Sorry to hear you are leaving. I just decided to come back after being gone for a while. I own the other small house on the Magencia Beach house. What happened to the big house in the middle - did someone try to replace it after it fell?

    I would love this spot. Have recently returned to LS and it would be my pleasure to hold this for you.

    I would do it (hold the house for him) but can't afford to reactivate a 2nd account right now. Hopefully Hakeen or someone else will take on the house so I have a NEIGHBOR. I have been holding on to my house for a long time just like theragon. It was a great remote base during the Magencia invasion and hopefully the area it in will get some much needed love when Magencia gets rebuilt.

    The house has been transferred to Onyx Nun. He seems like a very nice person and an active player who will give the spot the love it deserves, and I am sure in many years it will still be there. Thank you all for your interest, and I hope to see you all again when I eventually return to the game - at which point, I'm gonna need a house, because my bank boxes are FU-ULLL!!! LOL. I love you all and miss you and look forward to coming back. BYE!! *waves*

    Safe Travels old friend. If I am still living on the beach when you return, I will be happy to give you safe harbor until you get back on your feet again.
