Here it is.........
There is NO item, NO house, NO skill, NO tame, NOTHING more prestigious to own in the game of Ultima Online than the Castle.
These mammoth homes can be used for tons things but I will only list some of the more popular:
1. The Ultimate Guild House - No other home offers the space, security and honor a guild can accqurie than haveing a Castle for their Guild House.
2. True Vendor Mall - With the vendor changes that came with AoS ONLY the castle can accomidate that needed space to run a true vendor mall. Even with the vendor changes, the castle can hold close to 30 Full vendors.
3. King/Emperor/GOD - The perfect house for he or she that has a big ego (like me). Very few on the shard and there will never be more land for castle placement unless you spend tons of cash and time buying up homes and then taking the risk of taking down several homes to place a castle. Be a true Lord/Lady when you own a castle.
4. The Uber Bank - Not much to say other than you should NEVER run out of space to store items with the castle.
Regardless of your reason for wanting a castle, there is no better house you can own that offers as many options, choices and features as the castle.
This castle has only had two owners, I bought it back in 2001 for UO Gold making me the second owner, you will only be the third. Most castle have had many owners but very few have stayed to one person for so long.
