<p>It's in the Update Notes but I can't find any sign of it in the game.</p><p>Is it supposed to be standard from the Creation menu? Dropped? Quested?</p><p>Does it actually exist?</p>

<p>Isn't it purchased in the Marketplace?  I thought that was where I got it.</p>

<p>Yep it was in the Marketplace briefly and disappeared.  You can still see the three item sets, but the palace itself is gone.</p>

<p>I bought the Poet's Palace layout on Monday (23 April) evening, along with the three decorator packs (for Station Cash, of course). </p><p>I didn't see any listings for Poet's Palace layouts in the Dungeon Maker tab, so I figured it was just so new, no one had one made yet.  I wanted to see exactly what it looked like (not having been to the original Poet's Palace yet), so I created one and named it Alhambra (after a beautiful Moorish palace in Spain).  I zoned in, looked around, put everything that was laying about back in the toolbox, and then set out some mobs.  Effects boxes didn't have any effect, tho.</p><p>I came back Tuesday night to work on it, then test-published it to check the aggro range of the upper level (where I put my Djinn Master Boss).  There was still no tab labeled Poet's Palace, so I started checking the other layouts.  I found my newly-published Alhambra in another category (Crushbone, as I recall; I think I tried Lair of Scale first and then moved up one and located it; there was another dungeon listed with "Poet's" in the name, so I think that's where they all are sent).</p>

<p>Interesting oafgirl.  I bought one when it was briefly available and was assuming the category would show up whenever someone first published one.  I do hope they give it its own category or change the category name to reflect its inclusion the existing category!</p><p>I'm amazed there are published ones already.  I'm so slow.  I'm still thinking about what I want to do with it.  I really know how to drag out a dungeon design process. <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>I still see the Poet's Palace layout for sale, in the same place as the other layouts (as of 25 April 12).  Are you sure your account is still AoD flagged?  For those that already purchased it, are you sure you don't have "Hide Unusable" checked?</p><p>If not, then you better petition because it's still available for sale for me, it's still available for me to use as a layout, and the dungeon I made using it (but didn't publish) is still available.</p><p>Note:  The character of mine that bought the layout does not see it for sale, even with "Hide Unavailable" unchecked.  But my characters that have not already bought it do see it for sale.  I have always found that "Hide Unavailable" to be a bit buggy.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone. Never even occurred to me to look in the SC store. I thought a heavily-trailed feature of a free update would be, you know, free!</p><p>Still, it's only 75SC or 100DM so the cost is trivial. More problematic is the lack of a Poet's Palce tab and the PP dungeons turning up under Crushbone (checked and yes they do). That's just plain incompetent.</p>
