    Players with accounts over 14 days old will notice a special bag placed in their bank upon login. These will be awarded from 9/5/2019 to 9/14/2019 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.

    Event Bag Details

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

    Scavenger Hunt Event - Schedule
    • Sunday September 6th @ 3pm CST (4 pm est, 1pm PST)

    Scavenger Hunt Event - How to Participate
    • Be prepared to travel the world, following clues in order to find Chris in-game (see my avatar)
    • You should have the ability to recall, a horse and access to a rune library.
    • Reliable access to our chatroom (Discord) 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 in-game 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/video review.
    • 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.
    • Each round takes roughly 90-120 minutes.

    Scavenger Hunt - Registration
    • Registration is no longer required for this event. However if you will not be available for the prize room selection at the times indicated it is critical that you provide the staff with your top 10 items so we can 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
    • 8th Anniversary Mask Dye (hue 2753,2597, assigns a custom name to your mask) 8 of each Color
    • 8th Anniversary Sandals (hue 2753,2597) 12 of each color

    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.

    Starting on the 5th of September players who log into the server will receive a gift bag deposited in their bank account. These bags can have the following items in them.

    (100%) 1 Piece of Random 8th Anniversary Clothing (See below for list of potential items)
    (100%) 1 Piece of Random 8th Anniversary Jewelry (newbied)
    (100%) Fireworks Wand (100 Charges)
    (10%) 8th Anniversary Glass Mug
    (5%) 8th Anniversary Lantern (Blessed)
    (???) Hair Restyle Deed
    (???) Beard Restyle Deed
    (???) Clothing Bless Deed
    (???) 8th Anniversary Thigh Boots
    (???) 8th Anniversary Boots
    (???) 8th Anniversary Runebook
    (???) 8th Anniversary Spellbook
    (???) 8th Anniversary Mask Dye
    (???) 8th Anniversary Sandals​

    The rewards have been expanded to include some new items due to our new bag approval system explained below.

    Should your account not quality for a gift bag you will see the message shown in the above picture. A reason for why you were not provided with a gift bag will be added to your account for easy staff review. Should you believe this is in error or if you would like to request a special consideration be made for your account you can page ingame or contact a staff member on Discord. Any gamemaster level staff member can review your account and make a determination.

    If you are going to be away from your computer from the 5th to the 14th and unable to log in you can also contact us with your account names and we can provide you with a gift bag once you return.
    Note: This is ONLY valid before the event, we will not be giving out gift bags if you miss the event completely. You are allowed to forget your anniversary with your wife, not the UOR anniversary. Do not give your account information to someone else to obtain the gift bag for you.

    So to be clear. Logging into your friends accounts, trying to use methods to access extra accounts using non linked IP addresses and other tricks used in the past will not work. Over the last few patches we have slowly expanded the tools that allow us to find and identify accounts that are invalid or exceed our normal account rules. If your reward bag is denied be prepared for the staff to review any accounts linked to you, the account history, and any other relevant information to determine if this account deserves a reward.

    That said we do understand we have situations where families, roommates, and LAN parties play together. If you are denied a bag due to this reason we will be happy to help. Attempting to use your friends accounts to get 3 more gift bags this year however will not only result in a denial. It can also result in your friends accounts being closed to avoid violating the account limitations. If you want your friends gift bags, call them and make them login.

    Note: As we move into the 2nd year of this system do not risk your accounts or your friends accounts trying to get gift bags. If you have shared your account information with anyone in the past (shame on you) You should immediately change your passwords before this event just to avoid the temptation of a friend using your account to try to get an extra reward.

    It seems that it will be a great event like every year.
    Unfortunately the language barrier limits my ability to quickly understand the hints. I wonder if it will be possible to give the clues also in Spanish. @Chris

    8 years and running, I've been in it 7 years. That's longer than I was on the original UO.

    Thank you to all of the staff who put in some amazingly dedicated, hard work to keep this place going. Thank you to all of my fellow players out there who are willing to brave the wilds. To the murderers, the thieves, the healers, crafters, mages, dexxers, the RP'ers and the PwNaGeRs, the vets and the N00bs. To each and every one of you who help make this game more than just a game.... you make it a community.

    Cheers, and happy anniversary!

    Looking at the prize room stuff, is that a pole with shackles at the top? I tried looking that up in the item database and can't find any info on it. Are these super rare, not rare, server birth rare?? Trying to get some info. Thanks.
