Kats & Lina build their own homes
ina and I had many a time considered buying a house together, but empty lots seemed to be extremely scarce and
we weren't too willing to buy a used house in case of thieves. But both of our bank deposit boxes were becoming
overfilled and something needed to be done. We were getting to the point that "anything would do".
One day as Katsienna killed one of the many trolls she has slain, amongst the loot was a treasure map for the
island of Occlo. Katsienna took her lockpicks and best shovel, and went searching for the treasure. When she arrived
on the island, and walked through the forests, she was pleasantly suprised by the relaxing forest sounds and
peaceful aura of the place. No PK's, no teenage newbies, just a few cows roaming about. What was even better
was the spacefulness, it looked like there may be even room to place some houses!
After Katsienna had retrieved her treasure, she made a rune to the spaciest part and then went about telling Lina
about Occlo. Lina sounded quite excited and the two recalled to the island to check it out. Lina took a liking
to Occlo immediately just as Kats had and the girls decided to go buy a house deed. Katsienna had already
travelled through all of the cities looking for the best bargain, and Vesper seemed to be the cheapest,
although many claim it to be Minoc.
Buying the deed in Vesper.
After the deed had been bought, the girls recalled back to Occlo and went about trying to place a small
plaster and wood house. But it wasn't going to happen right away, in fact it took about an hour before the first
house had been placed and another for the second house.
Lina and Katsienna ecstatic about finally succeeding in placing the first house, which
eventually became Katsienna's home.
The girls were so happy to get their own homes, especially since the place was so lovely and peaceful,
and the sea was right there, so ships could be parked close to home. Occlo was a nice place also because
it had it's own bank and magery guild which sold magical items. Also lots of sheep roaming around, as
well as the occasional troll spawn.
Over the next days Lina and Katsienna furnished their new homes happily. What a relief it was to get all of that
stuff organised and to have ones own private space in UO which no other could tread.
