The Last Oasis

The last surprise in our Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion highlights our first limited store item, The Legendary Tavern!

Expect this item to appear in our online store in the next couple of hours!

Across the rich history of Elyria, from the tales of the Godswars, to the miracles of the cardinal age and beyond, legends abound. For many, these legends are naught but myths and stories we tell each other when times grow dark, but some legends? Some legends persist and endure even into the modern age. These legends have tangible form, their stories pressed and formed into the very bricks, cut stone, and beautiful wood-work of places you can visit and see with your own eyes. The most frequented of these living legends? Why those would be The Thirteen, the great legendary inns and taverns of Elyria, known from shore to shore and kingdom to kingdom as the places to be. Whether its business or pleasure, everyone knows one of The Thirteen is the place to find it!

Hand-sewn into the fabric of Elyria, and with a unique flare and style, these structures are singular elements of the living history of the evolving world of Elyria and act as seeds for story, adventure, and intrigue. No two are alike, but each forms a keystone of the world's history and lore!

Details:

Take ownership of The Last Oasis one of the 13 Legendary Inns and Taverns of Elyria! As its sole proprietor you will take over ownership and operation of the Legendary-quality tavern found in the semi-arid desert of your starting continent or island chain. Renown across the lands, with a reputation as the go-to place to seek entertainment, business, and pleasure, this tavern is fully furnished and stocked, ready for you to walk through the door, dust off the counter, and get to work!

Purchasing this item will grant you a Legendary-quality Tavern deed which can be brought to The Last Oasis tavern in Elyria and used there to take ownership of the tavern and gain rights to the parcels of land it sits upon. You must take possession during exposition and must have a Bloodline or better pledge package to take possession. When you claim the tavern, you will have the opportunity to forge employment contracts with the tavern''s existing staff or let them go as you see fit.

The precise location of each of the The Last Oasis differs based on server, but the specific duchy is indicated in the store description. Regardless, each instance of The Last Oasis offers the following amenities:

  • 2 common rooms, each with a 20-mann seating capacity, its own bar counter, a hearth, and stools, tables, and benches for 20
  • A stage for performances in the main common room
  • A large kitchen with access to both common rooms, containing its own oven and hearth
  • A fully stocked ale and wine cellar in the basement with 8 large ale kegs, 4 mead kegs, and 30 bottles of agave spirits
  • 6 Private rooms on the second floor for use as inn rooms, meetings rooms, or offices as you see fit
  • A private residence bedroom and office on the first floor, accessible via the kitchen, for the owner
  • A small attached stable able to house 4 horses

The Last Oasis will be featured in stories, novels, and other events both now and in the future, as Elyria's ten-year story unfolds.

Note: This is a rare and limited item: Only one legendary tavern deed for The Last Oasis will be sold for each server!

You must have bound your account to a server before you can purchase this item.


Update 11/27/2018 2:36PM PST:

In order to provide a fair and reasonable amount of time for potential purchasers to be awake in a server's region, we will be releasing the legendary taverns for Angelica, Luna, and Oceanus today, with Selene's to follow tomorrow in EU's evening. Good luck to you all!

I sure am glad the first Legendary Tavern is Semi-Arid Desert. I would never buy something like that until settlement selection is complete.

It would really suck to buy one of those and domain selection doesn't go how you (or your kingdom) thought it would.

Lots of cool stuff here.

I have one question about the birds. Would it be possible to keep those birds in your house or in your store/business building. I think they would be a great addition there.

Can the stables hold larger animals such as Ursaphants? If we have smaller animals such as dogs and are running a dog kennel, could we house more than one per stall?
