    I've updated the Original Post with a current map of claimed lots. I've also, with release 39, replaced the Titan Statues at the gates with Devotionals. It was always my intent to make use of the Blessings system once it became available. Let's see how often I get sieged, shall we?

    Here's what I have in place: (Subject to change... Input from and the opinions of residents will be welcome and considered.)
    • North Gate: Honor - Focus Regeneration Buff and Agriculture Buff
    • East Gate: Valor - Health Buff and Blacksmith Buff
    • South Gate: Honesty - Focus Buff and Alchemy Buff

    Dawn's Keep is a great place to be, I'm glad I decided to settle here! Having my guildmates all close by is so nice... plus the all amenities for crafting, its proximity to a major city and multiple other PoTs nearby— not to mention Rufus is a gracious Governor!

    If you haven't found a home yet, consider Dawn's Keep!

    Updated the map in the original post.

    Organized Chaos had been using Dawn's Keep as their base of operations. They recently purchased a Metropolis of their own, and have moved opening up many prime lot locations.

    It's been awhile since I made an update.

    I just added 4 Inns, so will be able to provide housing for Avatars even if they have no deed.

    Since the last update I've added two more inns, for a total of six. I'm having 6 different decorators decorate them. 1 is done, 3 more are in process... If you'd like to decorate one of the other two, see this thread, and let me know!

    Also, since the last update, I've upgraded the town. I took advantage of the POT Upgrade Discounts during Lord British's Birthday Telethon. This took effect with Release 44, and I've already burned through the extra deco limit. As a result the town looks much better, and I've been able to implement a few things that've been on my to-do list for a very long time.

    Come take a look, and if you're looking for a place for yourself, or would like a place for your group where you could live and play together, get in touch with me.

    OP Updated with the latest information, and the new SotaMap Lot Availability Map!

    So glad I took the time to go set that up in SotaMap. What a wonderful resource. Any other Governors out there that haven't yet made the effort, and it took me about 10 hours on Sunday to do it, I highly recommend taking the time and making the effort to get your towns laid out.

    Updated the OP after having worked on the town today, reconfigured the town square, and added more lots to the west of the center.
