The houses are nice, my house was good, yours was shit until you renovated it. Mong did great things for Skaal but a lot of stupid things happened. Like constantly being up your ass. The only serious problem I had with Skaal was that I couldn't build anywhere. Not in the city, not 3 days trek into the wild. Also the taxes idea was REALLY bad.
Also This is the Don Cesar that Asrele was talking about. It's one of the nicer hotels here in Flroida (AKA Florida.)
