    That is superb, Vivian. As a dagger isle resident myself I may well pop round for tea :) And a big thank you for allowing me to supply the pentagrams with your very generous financial donation.

    All those vendors and I bet you don't sell a damn thing on them! Worst vendor mall ever!

    My eyeballs hurt, but there's a lot of clever stuff in there. Runaway winner for Best Use of Onion, in my opinion.

    My house isn't public, its more of a fancy live-able space. Big Thanks to all the folks help helped me out along the way.
    Elhorno for making the full size images for me. Descartes for selling me this place way back in the day. Amfek for loaning me stuff.
    Pretty much the rest of O^S for idea help and helping me make the money to be able to buy a lot of junk.

    Main floor- Mostly livable space and storage.

    Entering Most Unique Design Element.

    I've been so busy the past year with college, work and stuff, barely had time to play. Unfortunately for that reason I don't have much to offer but I think this is best contest, and I would like to participate even though the only thing I can present is this classroom. Hope you guys enjoy or at least hopefully I'll have the chance to receive a Honorable Mention. Good luck all :)

    You're missing a statue unless I'm mistaken, Xeg.

    Massive PANDA House Catagory.
    Most Unique Design Element (for Brain Grotto)


    WELCOME TO PANDA HOUSE

    PANDA HOUSE, expanded upon from last year. PANDA HOUSE is a museum of organs, these hearts and livers were harvested from real (formerly) live Britannians. I encourage all to come loiter in my clearing and take a peek at the collection, maybe you'll spot your own heart, liver, or a dear friend's! PANDA HOUSE showcases the history of the most important aspect of an Ultima Online community, the players!

    Let's take a quick look at PANDA HOUSE as a whole and then I will take you room by room to bring you a bit closer to see how things are done in the PANDA FOREST.

    The main entrance and downstairs space serves as a welcoming and information travel center.

    pandakeep1.jpg

    Upstairs has a fresh buffet every day with food and meats from across the land.

    pandakeep2.jpg


    The roof top is where PANDA HOUSE shines. This organ museum is from my days traveling the map. I have risked my own life dozens of times just to go back to someone's corpse to harvest their organ. I take the organ documentation seriously!

    pandakeep3.jpg


    Here's a section by section breakdown...

    The Sanctuary
    If I actually played UO with people, I'd imagine they'd sit on these benches with me.
    the-main-hall.jpg


    The Travel Center
    A rune to anywhere that matters can be found in this chamber. The benches provide safe passage for PANDA HOUSE residents but does not allow trespassers the freedom to stay at PANDA HOUSE for free. Quick restocking and drop off services are provided by our Panda Associates.

    travel-center.jpg
    The Tavern
    Above the Sanctuary and Travel Center is the dining buffet at PANDA HOUSE. Here you can taste fruits and meats from all across Britannia, or discuss secret plans. Absolutely no MSG is served here, we guarantee it!
    plans-over-dinner.jpg


    The Kitchen
    The kitchen in the original PANDA HOUSE was too small. The Panda Associates have expanded PANDA HOUSE's north wall, allowing the kitchen to grow to three times the size of last year's model!

    Master Bedroom
    You don't need a big fancy bedroom to have a great time.

    The Vault
    PANDA HOUSE takes in loot by the ship load regularly. The vault is where the very best loot is stored.

    vault.jpg

    The Workshop

    The new and improved workshop is 960% more organized than last year's workshop allowing us to overwork the Panda Associates!

    workshop.jpg


    The Library
    There are few scholarly citizens in these parts. Those who do write and distribute their own in-game tales can be published by PANDA HOUSE. Contact me for details, we have a large distribution force regularly traveling the continent. Join the collection of books written by your fellow players!

    The Trophy Space
    You don't get trophies for PKing, unless you're PANDA HOUSE. This trophy was received because PANDA HOUSE PKed so much that Chris couldn't handle the pages.

    Most Unique Design Element
    The Brain Grotto & Lord's Lair

    Where better to do my scheming against every single Britannia than in a "brain grotto" atop of PANDA HOUSE, underneath and surrounded by hundreds of brains of my fallen species.

    I can make one better, a fountain if I wanted to. I think that would be a bit too much.

    Best Decorated Large House
    The H*O Hunting Lodge
    The H*O Hunting Lodge is Garvey's main home, located Northwest of Vesper Bank. It is conveniently nestled behind the massive house of the Vile Bart Simpson. It features a fully dyed T-Map Runebook set (Thanks Vella!), a modest dining area, as well as sleeping quarters and the crafting room. A few lockdown increases were needed to fill this home as necessary. Thanks for looking!
