Well, a virtual one, in Ultima Online :)

It cost me 1.5 million gold for the plot. With the new Age of Shadows release (review/thread to come) you can use a customisation tool to design your house how you like. So this is mine:

Funnily enough just as i finished cutomising it, my virtual neighbour asked me if he could buy it so his RL friend could live there. So last night we did a house swap and i have picked up a new slightly larger plot as part of the deal. Expect pictures of my new home soon :)

Is that gay looking guy (who appears like he is about to shag the horse) you or your neighbour?

If you mean the guy on the roof, that's me. As for the horse shagging, it's a purely platonic relationship :p

Why isn't your house square? Copying our real life house?

About time you found a place to live. So how much other ass are you kicking?

I hope you don't have skeletons and horse shit laying around your house in RL as well.

actually it's a 'secret spot' totally enclosed by mountains and unreachable by foot, of which there are only 8 in the new landmass :p

I was sure I made a pun about Venom using dessert when he meant desert.

Venom

Perhaps the pun was all mine.

Is your house at the edge of the known universe?

Looking forward to the AoS review - haven't played this for a while as I got a router for my cable modem and couldn't seem to configure it to allow UO to pass the onboard firewall. Fixed it the other day with a simple re-install :rolleyes:

Anyway - i'm still a relative wuss with my stats, mainly due to lack of chance to play (best moment was when I got poisined by a Giant Spider, then immediately drank a bottle of poisin thinking it was antidote... oh I did laugh.... and somehow survived.

Back on topic - nice house! Will look out for the AoS review.

KG, your house designs have some roof access problems. Do you have to climb the wall everytime??

Sean

The secound house has the mark of Zorro.

Nav

toilets should be included in the design then.

That's not a house, it's a prison.

Definitely the ghetto.

that little 'mark of zorro' in the top corner is a teleporter :)

I'm beginning to furnish it now, but i had to transfer ownership of the house between two different accounts so it got messy.

Can you hire another game character as a cleaner?

Must be boring doing your own ironing as well...

I think i'm going to create a new vagrant character and call him 'Woodsmoke Peat'. I'll go around harrassing people by getting in their faces and yelling 'Big Issue!!!'

'Big Issue Sir!'
'Big Issue Madam!'
'Free HEARING AID WITH THIS ISSUE!!!'
'No.. don't... please... aaaargghhhhh.........'
