    Make sure to join #3rdAnniv in IRC to take part in the event at the scheduled times.

    To celebrate the 3rd Anniversary of UO Renaissance going live we have a few special things planned for our players.

    Players with accounts over 21 days old will notice a special bag placed in their bank upon login. These will be awarded from 8/29/2015 to 9/4/2015 and are given 1 per account. These items will be placed directly in your bank, for players who might have logged out in hazardous locations, so make sure to check there.

    To celebrate the anniversary we have created an exclusive line of clothing, jewelry and decorative items. Each item is named to celebrate the occasion.

    Each bag has a chance to contain the following
    • 1 3rd Anniversary Clothing Item (hue 1164,1374)
    • 1 3rd Anniversary Jewelry Item (newbied, hue 1164,1374)
    • Chance for an anniversary mug
    • 1 Hair Restyle Deed, Beard Restyle Cream, or Clothing Bless Deed
    • 1 Fireworks Wand
    • 1 Special Named Bag (hue 1164,1374)
    • Rare Chance for a mystery item

    During our anniversary weekend we will be running a 4 part scavenger hunt event.

    Scavenger Hunt Event - Schedule
    • Friday August 28th @ 11pm Cst (12am est, 9pm pst)
    • Saturday August 29th @ 1pm cst (2pm est, 11am pst)
    • Sunday August 30th @ 3pm cst (4pm est, 1pm pst)
    • Monday August 31st @ 6pm cst (7pm est, 4pm pst)

    Scavenger Hunt Event - How to Particpate
    • Be prepared to travel the world, following clues in order to find Chris ingame (see my avatar)
    • You should have the ability to recall, a horse and access to a rune library.
    • A detailed knowledge of the UO world and a bit of UO lore is a huge help.
    • Simply follow the clues and speak to Chris ingame to place in each round.
    • Players earn 3 points for 1st, 2 points for second and 1 point for 3rd in each round.
    • Ties are determined by checking Chris's journal.
    • Each event will have 12 rounds.
    • Players will need to be prepared to travel to towns, the overworld and dungeons
    • Each character may only score in two events. Allowing for our international and working players to have an equal chance.

    Scavenger Hunt - Registration
    • In order to register for the event I will need to be given a character name and forum name.
      Note: You can do this via IRC Pm, Forum PM, or before any of the event rounds. Making sure I have your contact information is critical

    Scavenger Hunt - Scoring and Prizes
    • Each players points will be pooled to determine a clear ranking ladder.
    • Ties will be determined by 1st place finishes. (1 first place > 3 third place finishes)
    • Players, in order of placement will gain access to the prize room shown below.
    • Players can choose 1 item from the prize room.
    • 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place will earn a trophy honoring their achievement.
    • Players will also earn platinum based on their total event score.
    • Each character may only score in two events. Allowing for our international or working players to have an equal chance.
    • You may use a 2nd character for a 3rd and 4th round for another chance at the prize room.
      Note: However this character cannot access the prize room before everyones first character.
      Note: The masks are just for reference, 4 mask dyes are available as prizes.
      Note: You must be present monday evening in order to select a prize from the prize room. If you are not available you will need to provide me with your top 10 selections, or allow me to choose for you.

    The Prize Room - Notable Items
    • 3rd Anniversary Mask Dye
    • 3rd Anniversary Sandals
    • Animated Sparkles (Blue)
    • Animated Sparkles (Red)
    • Covered Chair
    • Animated Bees and Beehive (Requires gm placement at a location)
    • SaddleHorse
    • Hanging Cauldron with Animated Stew
    • Animated Egg Case
    • Animated Cocoon
    • A total of 64 items!
      Unique Item Note: The prize room this year includes unique items that have gone out of circulation per our unique item standards and website interface. These items are included in the prize room because we can now add new copies into circulation.

    Note: The locations being chosen for the event are known only to myself. No other staff or volunteers have been involved in the selection process or clue design.

    Note for all of the new folks, my first foray into this scavenger hunt I placed in the top 5 by using only public moon gates. It is very possible for you to compete with the veterans even if u are still training skills.

    I also sold most of my prizes for over 2 million golds to veteran players who wanted the Trammell more than me. This is a nice way to get a jump start. (Aka the secret to my non-farming wealth accumulation program)
