Great Big Tracts of Land, or How I Bought a Castle

Just got an email, closing is set for June 1st! Ten days and I own a freaking castle!

That is great news. I hope the next week and a half goes smoothly.

Awesome news, Teneman! Huge congratulations!!

I live a couple of hours from Goodjer castle, and this whole murder mystery / zombie outbreak thing sounds awesome.

I've had a ton of emails back and forth with the guy who puts them on, and let me tell you: I'm excited. He's got a huge range of things he does, and the level of detail he goes into is impressive. I'm certainly looking forward to them personally, as well as from a business standpoint.

This all sounds incredible. I might have to find a way to sneak out East.

Yes, yes you do.

You might want to contact folks at the Midrealm SCA to see about advertising in their newsletters for events and stuff.

Tying in with the SCA was definitely on our list, but I hadn't researched their contact information yet. Thanks for saving me the time!

Goodjerhold is an actual thing! Yay!

Castle takeover commencing in T minus 24 hours...

Why can't I get Billy Crystal's voice out of my head?

"Have fun storming the castle!"

So do you just walk in with the deeds, or do you have to siege it, my lord ?

Please tell me they will hand you a massive iron key ring?

On second thought, forget the key!

Ditto, even my wife is curious!

Which direction should we be calling you king of? King of the mid-west?

Yes. How do we book a room? I don't have a wife, but I might bring my pillow. :p

Who knew Ohio *had* castles?

Hope the closing is going well. Whee!

King of Mid-Westeros?

Too bad Ohio is not Mid-West.

I'm starting to get the feeling that I need to catch up on Game of Thrones if I want to hang out in this thread. Just discovered that season 1 is now available on HBO for Xbox, so I'm finally watching, now that I can catch up from the beginning.

Last time I looked at a map of the Midwest Ohio was a part of it.

Yeah, being Not-New-England and Not-The-South pretty much dumps it in the Midwest.

Always felt that it's too far East to be considered anywhere in the West, but whomever named these regions didn't seem to care.

Not sure how Virginia and West Virginia sneaked into the North East. West Virginia alone is more "southern" and states farther south. :p
