    Nice man! What are those things behind the Wind teleporter?

    The easter 10-plat eagle trophy on the roof is awesome. I'm sad I kind of wrote that easter award off and didn't pay it any attention.

    EDIT: looks like this is near the Lycaeum on Moonglow.

    The things near the teleporter are stalagmites. Not sure why they show up weird in the screenshot.

    Greetings everyone, I present my submission! Within this house I have filled a lot of what I have gathered and collected throughout my trammel collecting endeavors.

    First Floor
    On the first floor, I present my blacksmith shop. Each smith is responsible for a specific ore and they come equipped with the tools of the trade for that color ore.

    Second Floor

    Moving onto the second floor, I have gathered many of my trophies spanning both land and sea. While ascending the stairs, a hearty collection of animal trophies line the stairwell. At the landing, furs of similar description line the floor, so no pesky splinters can slow you down. Turning into the room on your left reveals the plunders of many voyages out to sea. One of my crew members is memorialized on the wall sporting his most cherished possessions: fishing rod, dread pirate captain's tricorne, and the one that didn't get away. Continuing through to the balcony reveals a collection of brighter rarities that lift the spirit following the trek through so many dead animal remnants. The balcony offers a place of solace and repose to the weary regardless of their social status or trammel addiction.

    Bird's-Eye View
    Finally, a bird's eye view of the villa offers a full appreciation of the original architect's vision for an eye-catching canopy. Not only is this lofty area aesthetically appealing, but it also represents my desire to honor those who built this humble abode. I have adorned this vintage design with my collection of checkered trophies that I have earned through battle and trade. All together, the villa represents the palette of both land and sea as I honor the trophies of conquest and gathering that I have amassed until this point. I'll see you all in the land adventure! (If I'm not filling bods)

    The Wind Teleporter area in Les's tower is a blessing bestowed to match the historical mage tower present on several OSI servers.

    Category: Large House, Unique Design Element
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I am submitting this splendid work of light and valor on behalf of Hans of TKB because I'm not sure
    he'd place it here himself. I find his work is quite deserving of the admiration of the UO:R community.

    Also the unique design element built atop this tower is a jousting ring with a noble archway.

    I have also included pictures of both day and night appearance of this spectacle in the Spirit Wood

    In the event that TKB's Tower of Valor wins, all proceeds will be given to Hans of TKB. I am just submitting this on his behalf because I know he wouldn't have otherwise :)

    I present as a compilation, the Village of Paws entries.

    Each home in Paws represents the hard work of fellow villagers to make the area around the Shrine of Spirituality pristine and welcoming.


    SuFlare Vitale: Tower of Paws
    Category: Large House
    Unique Design: Sapphire Pond with functioning communication links to numerous locations around the world.

    The first floor of the tower is the only thing I take credit for. There is a magnificent tapestry of Sosaria hung proudly against the west wall. In the hallway a useful kitchen and storage area is built, with a bag of flour that Jackson Trawl spilled. This first floor is designed for hosting small groups of guests and includes a chess set.

    The second floor, provides sleeping accommadations for weary visitors. This room was in large part designed by Hans of TKB. I thank him graciously for this room. Atop the tower sits the Sapphire Pond. The pinnacle of Paws inspired adventures.

    Siren's Call
    Category: Medium House

    The Siren's Call is home to the most desirable vendors of Paws. Here you will find mystical armor, hand crafted first aid kits, and other various items you never knew you might need in the middle of the forest.

    The first floor opens to an eating area and game room. Up top are the sleeping quarters. Out on the balcony is a silver harp played by none other than Zeddar the Great

    Guild Hall
    Category: Large House

    The guild hall of Paws has seen the initiation of many a Paws villager. The funding for this house was provided exclusively by our long lost villager Draco and our beloved Abby. I can't thank them enough for providing this extravagant guild-hall

    Hidden beneath the candleabra's are the secret runes needed for the initiation process

    BorinsRetreat
    Category: Medium House

    This simple design denotes the true splendor of Paws. Less truly is more.

    The greatest part I like about this is the use of empty clock frames and small crates to make a shelf/wall partition in the room.

    Ossuary
    Category: Small House

    And to end the compilation is the Ossuary of Paws. Set next to the cemetery that we have claimed for Paws, this Ossuary houses the bones of many of our villagers and of the brave and noble adventurers who join us on our quests and mis-adventures

    Jupiter installs a one way teleporter to 3 tile island

    WOOHOOO!

    Although, it would be neat to have a one way teleporter from Wodan's bard house to a secret room in the Occlo musical hall :)

    ... hmm I hadn't considered this at first, but now that you bring it up. YES!

    And the music hall could be barricaded so you can't get out, and filled with vampires and undead sailors to steal your trammel soul!!! mwuahahaha

    What did he have to pay to get such a teleporter? Was he the first person to deem his tower "The Mage Tower" or did he do something additional? The fact that it's not just a house decor item concerns me. PANDA HOUSE would like a professionally built kitchen if you're handing out freebies!

    Les offered to allow his tower to become a public resource to serve as a monument commemorating the classic mage tower that was on Baja and other servers. OSI staff blessed several of these towers with one way teleporters to the dungeon wind.

    More information can be found here.

    The Scavenger's Roost
    [​IMG]


    Fun facts:
    • First Floor - I like alchemy rares.
    • Second Floor - 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.
    • Third Floor - 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.

    Good luck everyone!

    Good work, folks.

    If I ever get some time to finish my decorating, i'll have to submit some. Unfortunately, the summertime is not when I get to spend much time in-game so hopefully no one but Jupiter is holding their breath on that... :p

    Regarding opening up the house - you can see inside the first floor *if* the tile under the runebooks is free. When you stand under the runebooks, it allows you to see into the first floor of the house. So if that cactus is moved, or if the runebooks are moved on top of the vendor, visitors can at least peek in and see the bottom floor.
