    NOH & UNDEAD TOWN SUGGESTION BOX!

    [​IMG]

    Over the years there have been many great NoH's and rewards that followed.
    Last Year was the first launch of the Undead Town which I will say was probably one of the best times I have ever had here on the server. The Staff does an outstanding job each year. For new comers to the server this is a chance right here to see if you can get what you are looking for. (Reward wise, Bag drops , etc).

    [​IMG]

    The Staff @Chris , @Samorite , @Treasureman (retired) and Volunteers did such an outstanding job!

    They deserve applaud everytime they put something into this amazing server!

    I love the fact that the 2018 suggestive thread was actually paid attention to by the staff.

    Two of my suggestions for rewards were actually implemented into the event!

    It gives you a nice feeling that the Staff truly does care about what you want to see happen with event's such as this one!

    Hence Why I am Starting up this thread!

    -Reward suggestions

    -Instance suggestions (just don't expect much on this one, after all this server is the vision of it's creator)

    I ask that you please be respective towards each other and the staff while stating your input!

    New unique rare weapon drops and changing the location and type of spawning rares. Like bloodwaterfall, spider webs, ghostly bottles and skull candle. Mix it up so it keeps the vets guessing.

    Also new dragon dye drops and in the HC store (ethereal dragon or ghostly dragon dye would be tight)

    I have to co-sign on that ethy pet dye. I'm just scared of the blood clot I'm going to get trying to obtain it.

    Personally I'd like to see a change up on statues and possibly some wearables in the reward shop.

    I like the idea of dragon dyes being purchased from the store again, I think the colors should be in line with dull colors or even a repeat of last years would be fine.
    I love the idea of a "spooky torch" that might be some orange hue but not blessed, great house decor for an animated item
    Slightly hued spawning shackles would be cool or create a new monster that could drop them
    Take the eye of nute or guild stone teleporter and rename it "Eye of the undead dragon" and color it blaze.... be a ubber cool house decor drop
    A "Silver" Arrow or Bolt would be bad ass like a silver bullet concept
    "Vampire stake" thats a skinning knife make wood colored
    "a witches hat" thats a cool dark hue we don't have
    make a new mini boss character thats a enchanted witch or something and drops that short flogging whip but is called "a witches broom" or something
    a cool spawning rare would be just the fire off of a brazier as a active item
    A spooky body dye like savage paint once you die its gone.. Even pet paint like that would be cool
    a haunted mirror as a rare spawn would be cool
    cutting a zombie corpse and having a 1/10,000 chance of getting a "decaying brain" like the polar bear hides
    a rare spawning bust thats "a counts bust" or something like after a vampire
    Apple dyed light brown called "a candy apple"
    a pitch fork boss drop named "devil's trident" (google this)
    a piece of dead wood that is hued silver and called "franks neck bolt" as a rare drop from the boss
    adding a "spooky cat" statue to the holiday store would be cool
    another baller shop item would be a scarecrow deed!
    a drop that is called "a Vampires Cloak" and is a slighting rare dark cloth hue
    a single full jar that is named "a witches brew mix" and some cool decor hue (bright green?)
    take a scorp, dye and name it "a witches wand"
    take a "left leg bone" dye it red and name it "a bloody leg bone" so it matches the other rib cages and spines that are bloody
    sheet music and name it "spooky music"
    make a new "a grave diggers pickaxe" drop and hue it the color of the map that currently drops
    take the horse brushes add a horse mob to "the headless horse mans brush"
    cauldron stew but name it "a witches brew" and dye it green
    or a pot of wax and name it "a witches brew" and dye it green
    a new style or color grave stone last boss drop
    wool dyed a specific hue that is called "a werewolfs hair"
    a tall straw hat named "a scare crows hat"

    @Chris

    I do LOVE this event and in no way at ALL want a tram event... But I do think it can so easily be run by a large group choking all other players out of rewards, I would implement something like all red characters can not enter the gate... Feel free to merk people in there but when you are red you can not come back until you loose the 40 hour long.

    Additonally I saw people firebombing the crap outa the bosses and really expoiting this mechanic, simple fix, please do it :D


    If you use any of this give me a in game sign on my house for putting 3 hours of work into this :)

    One thing, that NEEDS to be in this event: blood soaked sandals (1157 sandals).

    Ok, maybe the name is a bit much. You taunt us with them on test. We have mask dye and cloth. Give us the footwear!!

    Hue 44 leather armour pieces.
    Studded and plain.
    Not newbied, not blessable.
    Named Halloween (whatever the piece is studded gorget/gloves/tunic or whatever)

    That would generate a trade frenzy of swapping, trading, selling and trammeling.
    Which we all secretly love.

    Wall mounted traps, like the gargoyle heads that breath fire and deal damage or spike/gas traps, would be amazing to booby trap your home, could make way for some amazing player made house mazes.

    Everything Ron said.

    Namable tombstones would also be a HUGE H Coin sink and increase prices of grave dirt that lots of people have floating around in their collections.

    Dracula’s wig, wig on bust dyed jet black would also be dope.

    I don’t think it’s possible but somehow forcing dark nights for a week or two would be amazing. Imagine dozens of players with torches in hand running through the woods.

    I don’t really care about item drops.

    I may have been under the late night influence of a 7th anniversary hype hangover!

    More ideas to come....

    You should have a some mob drop 1 of 2 bags
    1. "Trick" bag drop "Werewolf Dung" (slight different hue from regular dung)
    2. "Treat" bag "Vampire Garlic" (slight different hue from hanging garlic)

    Dye for a "Spooky Trash Can" that changed the color of a trash barrel but is a single use and once you chop or house decays its GONE

    Snow drop that is yellow and called "Werewolf Urine" and has no snowball effect

    Thinking of the torch idea, a cool rare spawn or drop would be a "Vampire Hunters Torch" in a slightly off hue...

    It would be cool to have a gate spawn in the cemeteries that was exactly the SAME as the instance gate but when you walk over it, it says "You have been tricked!" Imagine the fun when you call all your buddies and they recall in or show up and it does nothing :p

    Maybe some named items like:

    (Simon) Belmont’s whip

    Dracula’s cloak already thought of.

    While there have already been some good suggestions here. I recommend people support their suggestions with some Ultima research. This is UOR "history perfected" and NOT neon item dance party. For my most recent event I actually used the original words of power from old Ultima. Another good link to research Ultima lore is Ultima Fandom.

    If you can support your new-item suggestions with real Ultima lore, its much more likely to be used :)

    Vampire Skin Dye, works like tribal paint from OSI. Could be a neat way to introduce this item that I think people have been after for a while!
