    Make sure to join #5th in IRC to take part in the event at the scheduled times.

    To celebrate the 5th 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 9/1/2017 to 9/7/2017 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 5th Anniversary Clothing Item (hue 1195,1376)
    • 1 5th Anniversary Jewelry Item (newbied, hue 1195,1376)
    • Chance for an anniversary mug
    • 1 Hair Restyle Deed, Beard Restyle Cream, or Clothing Bless Deed
    • 1 Fireworks Wand
    • 1 Special Named Bag (hue 1195,1376)
    • 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 September 1st @ 11pm Cst (12am est, 9pm pst)
    • Saturday September 2nd @ 1pm cst (2pm est, 11am pst)
    • Sunday September 3rd @ 3pm cst (4pm est, 1pm pst)
    • Monday September 4th @ 5pm cst (6pm est, 3pm pst)

    Scavenger Hunt Event - Prize Room Opens
    • Monday September 4th @ 9pm cst (10pm est, 7pm pst)

    Scavenger Hunt Event - How to Participate
    • 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.
    • Reliable access to our chatroom (irc) where clues will be given.
    • 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 8/25/17 - 9/1/17
    • 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
      Note: If you can not be available for the prize room selection time listed above it is imperative you send me your top 10 favorite items, otherwise the staff will pick for you.

    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.
    • All players who score at least one point will earn a trophy honoring their achievement\rank.
    • Players will also earn platinum based on their total event score.
    • Each player may only score in two events. Allowing for our international or working players to have an equal chance.
    • Once you have taken part in your two rounds we would appreciate it if you avoid spamming my name, even if you still wish to take part in the game. This will make it easier on the staff running the event.

    The Prize Room - Notable Items
    • 5th Anniversary Mask Dye (hue 1195,1376, assigns a custom name to your mask) 8 of each Color
    • 5th Anniversary Sandals (hue 1195,1376) 10 of each color
    • 5th Anniversary Pegasus Trophies (hue 1195,1376)

    • 5th Anniversary Cloth (hue 1195,1376, 100 yards of each Color)
    • 5th Anniversary Spellbooks (hue 1195,1376, newbied) 4 of each color

    The Prize Room - Player Donated Items
    Thanks to some extreme generosity from our player (Treasureman) we have tons of bonus prizes this year!
    • Monster Statues
    • Various Platinum Rewards
    • Full Set of Phoenix Armor
    • 1st Year Anniversary Clothing / Jewelry
    • Previous Years Event Sandals
    • Pre patch crafted sandals (leather dye colors)
    • 1st Year Reindeer Masks
    • Platinum Store Monster Statues
    • Boss Monster Statues
    • Event Monster Statues
    • Christmas Event Item - Rare Open Books
    • This years donations thanks to Treasureman, Upgrayedd!
      Note: If the time comes for you to retire from playing remember that you can donate your items to future anniversary events!

    Over 100 Items in Total!
    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. Once an item has been stored in an inactive players bank or possession for over 90 days it is considered out of circulation and is viable for re-introduction in the yearly anniversary event.

    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.

    Awesome. Looking forward to it!

    What constitutes a rare item? Sandals/Spellbook/Rune book?
