Player Owned Bartenders

The following was posted to the IN DEVELOPMENT page at UO.COM:

Players will now be able to purchase and own a Bartender, that can be placed in the player's house. The bartenders will serve as a method for players to support and announce their own events and quests. The bartenders will have the following properties:
  • The Bartender can be "tipped" with amounts of gold. Depending on the amount of gold, the Bartender's reply will vary to possibly include a "rumor".

  • Rumors on the Bartender can and will (depending on the size of the tip) be about current scenarios currently going on within UO (game-generated scenarios). For example, a rumor might be about the Orc events that have been happening recently. The game-generated rumors will be kept current by the event system automatically, shard-wide.

  • The Bartender's owner/employer will be able to place one rumor on the bartender. This will allow for the bartender to function within player-created scenarios.

  • Players will be able to decide whether to tip the bartender for a scenario rumor or a �local� player generated rumor.

  • The Bartender will also sell drinks.

  • A contract of employment for a bartender can be purchased at an Innkeeper.
Bartenders will be in the various taverns throughout the cities, to support the scenarios as well, with the scenario rumors. However, players will not be able to add rumors to these bartenders.

The types of houses a bartender can go in are:
  • Two Story Villa

  • Large Marble Patio

  • Large Brick House

  • Large Patio

  • Two Story Stone and Plaster

  • Two Story Wood and Plaster

  • Tower

  • Stone Keep

  • Castle

  • Sandstone

  • Log cabin
