    Greetings Avatars,

    The Crown Shop has some great updates this week including the following:
    • Turreted Stone City Home: This rework of one of our most beloved City sized homes has new stone, roof, and interior treatments.
    • Small Obsidian Shards: These scaled down versions of the Obsidian Shard decoration have lost their mysterious powers to cancel out the Blessing of the Oracle and therefore can be placed in non-PVP locations. NOTE: Even the large Obsidian Shard can now be placed in non-PVP locations.
    • Shogun Paper Lamps: After numerous player requests we made this 6-pack of lights that makes the paper lamps from the Shogun string light placeable as individual lights!
    • The Vault: A new set of Vault items are now available until Thursday, May 23 at 10:30 AM Central Time. At that time, the next round of 9 items will be available for two weeks, and then the next, etc.
      • Firedance Emote
      • Firedance Cross Emote
      • Firedancer Outfit
      • Black Squirrel Pet
      • Vintage Blue Velvet with Nailheads Furniture Set
      • Vintage Red Velvet with Nailheads Furniture Set
      • Windmill Village Home
      • Obsidian Tower Town Home
      • Obsidian Keep City Home

    Just wonder if the shogun paper lamp can be separated into two packages. It may look nice if there is a small hanging string connected to the roof.

    Isn't the "Turreted Stone City Home" Just an addition of previously available house?
    I consulted with an avid "House Collector" in my Guild, who felt that this addition, was available in the past?

    Hmmm... On re-reading Starrs post....
    So maybe it is different after-all.... Hopefully they can place it in Hometown for viewing, or someone who has purchased it, can post where we can all take a look at it.

    I agree with you, as a Guildmate already has the Original Home.
    But... For anyone wanting to purchase. it would be great to compare the differences between the Original & this new re-skinned offering with "new stone, roof, and interior treatments".
    Basically... How is this New Offering really look different from the previous one?

    Added to Hometown.

    It is a rework of the Twin Spires home. It is not the Twin Spires home which was an exclusive pledge reward and therefore will NOT be appearing in the Crown Shop.

    You know what would be super useful is if the houses were listed on the cryer by name... so you effectively did character per house so people could find the house they were looking for with the cryer

    It has been a rare in the game. Come to Wizards Rest to see Lord Baldriths house. This is the same house. It is a beautiful house. He had to specifically ask for it for his Duke home and he does love it.

    I just ran to hometown to check it out. It is the same house as the Twin Spire home, just with different exterior textures/interior treatments.

    Nothing new here for Twin Spire owners to see really.

    Not the same. People want to see the reworked version.

    Slightly disappointed that this new addition to the Store is so unremarkable...
    Guess it is great for anyone who didn't get the Original & always wanted it.
    I DO hope the Crown store will have some more NEWish & more desirable additions to purchase, sooner rather than later.
    My COTO's still remain firmly in my pocket until then.
    & until I spend my current COTO's, I have absolutely no need to buy more COTO's from the Shroud store.

    Please @DarkStarr ..... Give me a reason, to part with my COTO's so I can spend some more money on buying more to replace them.
    As of today, the only "support" I can offer to Shroud, is to keep up my monthly subscription. (which wont keep the Shroud boat afloat in the longer term..... )

    I don't care if it is a rework or not. I'm just happy to have some decent city home options I can get offline!
