    Citizens of Britannia! Be on the lookout for Easter bunnies in the wild. These sinister fiends have an ulterior motive I assure you. Cute and fluffy is no excuse for leaving their unsightly eggs scattered about the lands. Turn these eggs in for reward if you wish to prove your worth in the realm. Be wary of assault as you may find yourself in quite a sticky situation.

    Starting April 1st the Easter Bunnies can be seen sneaking around Britannia hiding their eggs. Players are tasked with collecting the eggs, but beware the bunnies are rabid and will protect their eggs ferociously!

    Should you anger the Easter bunny they will summon their mutant brother Fluffy IV to protect them. Fluffy IV is said to be a descendant of the original Fluffy Sr that terrorized Britannia last Easter. Years of inbreeding has left these creatures extremely dangerous and impossible to separate from their ward.

    If you manage to make it back to town alive, find the reward vendor at your nearest bank and turn in the eggs you have safely scavenged.

    Once you find the vendor say "vendor redeem" and the following message will appear. Each egg you turn in will be worth 1 point. Should you manage to find a rare golden egg, they are worth 3 points. Note: Only eggs in your base backpack will be collected

    Once the Easter egg hunt is over players will be able to spent the points they accumulated in the Easter reward shop. This shop will be accessible from the reward vendor starting on April 4th and will remain open year round.

    2018 Event Updates

    This year the dastardly leprechauns have discovered the trick to getting golden eggs from the Easter bunnies and will be out in force hunting as well. Players can find them roaming the lands or in camps as they stash their golden eggs. There are rumors that the leprechauns are using a variety of caves to stash their loot and run illegal golden Easter egg farms. Should players find and kill these dastardly creatures there is a chance a gate will open to one of these locations.

    Beware however as multiple players can be sent to each cave and the leprechauns loot will go to the first player to loot their stash. Players should keep an eye out for green keys the Leprechauns are so fond of securing their chests with. Due to the magic of the caves once the Leprechauns are cleared out the magic in falter and everyone inside will be forcibly ejected!

    The rewards that can be found in these caves will match the challenge and risk involved.

    More details to come!

    Ahhh the Easter season on UOR, when a new generation of players gets to experience the hilarity of recalling home and getting annihilated by Fluffy who just so happened to be standing next to your recall spot :D

    Mine as well... not subjected to dungeon crawling, and the time of year I load up on Furniture Dye tubs... although a green fluffy will be purchased this year as well.

    If this is real it's a pretty great idea for our poor, beleaguered thieves.

    Honestly I think thieves could use some love hopefully the stealth boots could be incorporated I don’t see how it could be exploited really stealth is stealth... so that might be pretty cool.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe add rogue gloves +20 stealing so you can steal higher weight items.

    Holy crap that's a great idea.

    I say make them (and the boots) cursed (non-blessable), and rare-ish but not super rare. Like... Maybe choose ten random NPCs throughout Britannia on whom the gloves spawn once a month and ten cobblers on whom the boots spawn, again once a month.

    Also - Make them redeemable at the vendor for like 5 platinum or something so that people have an incentive to track thieves and identify them with Forensic Evaluation.
