    This took a long time coming. I grinded my ass off mining and buying ingots. I was barely making any profit but I had one goal in mind, the ultimate reward in the game... The Valorite Runic Hammer. Back in June I knew I was leaving for a couple months and I was flipping at least 300 bods a day. I was one bod short of my goal upon my departure to Alaska. I was away for about ten weeks and was somewhat dreading my return to grinding and smashing out bods. I arrived last Saturday night and decided to log in mumble to bullshit with the crew. They told to log in-game they wanted to give me their flips, immediately I was like "fuck already". They handed me books full of shitty bods and I was like "awesome". Then Bartimus says "oh wait there is another book in my pack". He hands it to me and I open it half-heartedly to the ultimate surprise. The last BOD I ever need.

    Thanks Bartimus and everyone who helped keep my Keep standing and making this Valorite Hammer possible *tear*.

    We're very careful about who we let into PANDA HOUSE. Not even the big fan man was granted access to our facilities.

    I don't know, but I always thought the inside of Panda House would be much darker, creepier, with body parts piled up everywhere a la Texas chainsaw masscre, and piles of loots waiting to be assessed. this looks...normal.

    We're a museum, not a slaughter house. PANDA HOUSE has to meet the standards of Britannia's health inspection codes for structures that serve food as well.

    And now I am off to re-build the maze for next years hamsters. At least this proves it wasn't as hard as everyone thought it was.

    Thanks for taking the time to run this contest for the last few months Cynic.

    Thanks! Stitching together over 150 screenshots took a couple hours but I think the result is well worth it.

    I like that moats are coming, but I prefer a cy to be functional and with a purpose. If only there could be a CY addon that is an outdoor smithy, a stable, or crafting area, or a garden... Lots to ask I know, but we can all dream

    Is this your way of saying neener neener I have a secure courtyard? Looks cool but if you learned your CY was secure because of Telamon's dev patch, that kinda proves the point made by many. When you no there's little to no risk, behavior changes.

    My CY was always decorated this way. I first put footstools out in the open spots in case of rogue runes. Then, knowing the history of the house and people involved, I left it this way a while(pic), minus the verite and aggy hammer prior to the command to test the assumption that it was secure. I took the risk cause the aesthetic was more important to me than some lost pixels. Hell, I used to recall mine out of my first fortress and was killed many a time with a cy rune on me. Drop a table or stool on that spot and mark a new one and move on.

    My behavior has not changed, the CY stood open long enuf for me to put both high end hammers back out. All before the command was known.

    I do admit the command provides me with a new peace of mind. However, this is my house, I should be secure in my house. Command or no command, my house is my castle (keep) I should be able to determine who can enter and who cannot regardless of some nefarious prior owner or random person marking areas just to perpetrate a break in. I would go so far as to suggest that anytime a CY house is sold, all prior CY runes are automatically wiped out. If I lose the key to the place, I can rekey all the locks... Why should someone who spends the kind of gold that a CY house commands and not get full use of said house?

    That's my 2cents worth, like it or not...

    SL often complains that there is no PVP...

    and then during a Friday Night Fight PVP Tournament... this is how they spend their time:
