Community Sharing Opportunity

Sannio, the UO Community Co-ordinator, posted the following new thread to the UO Boards:

I love player-run venues and themed communities. Love’em. Can’t get enough of them. I’ve spent a lot of time reading about them, going to various Shards and visiting them, and even participating in the building and running of some. I loved learning about them and I loved comparing notes about them.

I think a lot of people enjoy the type of community building that comes with these sorts of group-supported efforts, and I’d like all of you to share what you know about the player venues and themed communities on your Shards, here, on this “Roleplaying and Events” board. In this way I’d like to help as many people who play UO as possible, newbie or veteran, to learn about some of the opportunities they have available in regards to joining in community endeavors. So much changes in UO, in a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. I think it’ll be a great to get out the word about your venue/community to people who might not normally know so much about it.

Here’s how I’d like you to help with this. Post a reply to this thread about the venue or community you help with in the following manner:

Shard Name - Facet - Venue or Community Name

Shard Name - Facet - Venue or Community Name

Web site address: the primary Web address/URL for that venue/community
Sextant Coordinates: ##o##' ##o##'
Directions: (How to get there “by foot”)

One short paragraph summarizing the player venue or themed community.

Hopefully each venue/community only has one thread, but if some entries appear more than once, that’s fine, too. *grins*

You may have noticed I’ve posted the first reply to this post, concerning some place called “Mystery City.” I’m using that as an example of how I’d like everyone to post about their venues/communities. Feel free to go peruse my admittedly fading memory of Ultima Online’s first acknowledged player city. (And, if you have more information about Mystery City, please respond to that particular post!)

By the way, when I say “venues,” I mean simple shops, taverns, rune libraries, rares museums, vendor malls, theaters...any single building in UO that offers some kind of service to the general public. When I say “themed communities,” I mean players who play at being orcs, undead, savages, pirates, vikings, necromancers, monks, nobles, rangers...any group of characters that shares a common theme, allows anyone to try to participate, and has an easily locatable base of operations within the game (such as the theater in Britain, the castle in Nujel’m, a player’s own tower, a tavern in an NPC city, a graveyard, any one of the various orc forts, etc.).

Thanks for helping.
