    From what Tman told me, he has always had it. If I'm not mistaken, Tman is not interested in selling it, but if he were to sell it, then it would be as a complete set: naughty, nice, and master. Price range would be at least 10 million + for the set according to the last time I spoke with him about it. Beautiful set of rares that's for sure. I hope Tman plays more again in the future once his schooling cools down.

    The main room here as you enter the tower is remarkably well done.

    Entry: Large House

    Frenulum deserves 100% of the thanks for making this property possible. He gifted me the house itself and I have tried to put it to good use since. Thank you again and I hope to see you guys back someday.

    View from above:

    The very top has a chess setup, Dungeon library, and of course a waterfall - can't go without one! The downstairs has a statue for my son. The library on the bottom floor is the library I used for the 2nd Anniversary Scavenger Hunt.

    This is the resting place of my friends, HighwayRanger and Praetorian, who came with me to UO:R but have since moved on.

    Miss you guys.

    Downstairs includes Tmap Library, Spawning Rares Library, and Town Shops Library.

    Fun facts:

    Currently using 241 of 255 lockdowns. Every item is secure (and if it's not, then congrats on snagging it!). Currently the house is locked, but will be reopened to the public later today.

    First Floor - I like alchemy rares (a lot!). Here you will find the only possible set of animated flasks as well as the only (to my knowledge) set of Magincia beakers.

    Second Floor - Here you will find my trophy collection. These are all the trophies that have been personalized with my or one of my character's names, including the bucket, the small fish, and the broken chair. There's not that many, but I am proud of them! The brazier on the first floor is also the fire for the fireplace on the second floor. It's raised up just high enough to function on both floors. I also like jars.

    Third Floor - With the exception of the gravestone and grave, the roof contains only spawning rares that spawn on the ground. Adventurers can add all of these to their Scavenger Agent, then hit the Spawning Rares library on my steps in pursuit of treasures across the land.

    Baron - Baron and my small tower are one and the same. One cannot exist without the other. It seems only fitting that Baron should receive some decoration as well. Thus, Baron is now the sparkliest vendor in the lands!

    Perhaps the only house for which still screenshots do no justice!

    Also, love the idea of "Fun Facts" in these submissions. I think at one point this house had the highest selling price of any house on the shard, right?

    Small House Entry

    Theme: Tavern

    History: I acquired this lovely place in my early years here after a certain unnamed player had a late night rager. Used it as a main dumping ground for a long time till I decided to take my first crack at this deco game everyone seems to enjoy.

    Sign1.jpg
    I have added 1 item lock-down expansion, currently the house is open with vendors but the roof is secure.

    Location1.jpg
    Location!, Location!, Location! Also you can see the lanterns we keep burning, on the front stoop, to draw the drunks in and keep what lurks in the dark out!!

    FirstFloor1.jpg
    First floor is the tavern, with a basket full of free ale (Hasselhoff approved!!) for visitors. Herbs line the walls to keep the place smelling decent from all the drunkards. Key notes: the bottle display behind the bar.

    SecondFloor1.jpg
    Second floor is the casino/game room. Cards and dice for those that wish to gamble their hard earned gold. A vendor to sell the few wares I gather on my hunts. There is a runebook filled with stones for all the city taverns for you to use if The Ale House is not suitable for watering your whistle. Coming Soon: Lottery vendor, loaded with locked boxes with chance of platinum!!

    Roof1.jpg
    Third Floor Roof is for getting some fresh air during your stay, enjoy some freshly grown fruit also while sit by the poor man's fireplace!

    Clocks, yes. It's not easy decorating a fort lol, I ran out of creativity really quick. I also made it a mission to avoid just throwing rares and plat rewards everywhere. I'm a cheap bastard.
