So, I'm thinking that we buy it, and we can all live in the farmhouse. We'll make money by opening a small organic co-op, then selling our top-secret mulberry jam recipe to a multi-national conglomerate. We'll have cows and chickens and goats, too. Oh, and there's the little matter of the seven hundred year old ruins to explore. We can give tours, and open a museum of shit that we find.


For the most part, I'm totally serious. We can do a timeshare type deal, or something, except I'll live there permanently while everyone else comes and goes, or we can all live together, because mostly everyone here is pretty awesome. If twenty-five people get in on this, it'll only cost $120,000. I can probably get a loan for that much.

I really need a change of scenery, and ancient british ruins sound just my style.

If someone has £595,000 (that's, what, a million-and-a-bit US dollars?) they want to gift me.. I'll buy THIS PLACE and you can all come and stay whenever you want. I promise.

No ancient ruins on site, but it is near London Zoo..

 :wave:

I'd prefer a ruined Scottish castle, but if all we can afford is English, I'm sure it'll do.



Oh, and shouldn't this be in Anarchy, so no one else can see where our Secret Shadowbox Hideout is?

Yeah. Plus, shouldn't a prospective dresden dolls museum be opened in boston, not some random place in england?

And don't give me any shit about how hypocritical it is to have the SBHQ in england, but the museum somewhere else. It just makes sense that we should buy the coolest property on the market and then live there forever and never die, because we're super awesome like that.

I like this idea, because the process of actually building a ruin would be really really fun. Build something amazing and mysterious, then smash the shit out of it so people can only very vaguely figure what it did. Import some rocks from across the world just to fuck with em a bit.

Make sure it has a "series of small walls" as well.
