    Sorry for the delay on this patch. With my IRL work load going a bit crazy (year end deadlines) and a new baby arriving things have been a bit hectic. We have added a bunch of new volunteers to help share the load and will get back to our usually somewhat late development timeline rather than the very late method. I do take some pride in the fact the server has been stable for over 100 days without a memory leak or performance issues. Not many, if any, UO servers can claim this level of stability.

    Starting on February 11th Players logging in will find a special gift bag in their bank. Just some fun staff to apologize for the delay in getting this all together. Players will have a few days to claim these (it will be brief) in order to reward our players who stuck it out in the interim.

    Christmas Reward Store Update
    - Updated the Christmas store to have the 2018 selection of items.
    - Implemented a large holiday coin lottery with over 40 prizes.
    - These items will be available until November 2019.
    - Players can read more about the items available in the lottery here.

    Platinum Store Marble Island Raffle
    - In order to return the marble island houses back to players after they were donated to the server we have created a simple raffle system.
    - Players can risk varying amounts of platinum to spin for a chance to win one of these houses.
    - You can read more about this system here.

    Halloween Bugfixes
    - Made a few small changes to the AI, difficulty, and loot drops for various new monsters added for this years event.
    - These changes will go into effect for the 2019 event.
    - Fixed a few invalid items that were dropping during the event. ​

    Halloween Scoreboards
    - Added a system to export the results from the Halloween night of horrors 2 update.
    - This information will be accessibly in your player profile in a future update to the website.
    - For the 2019 Night of Horrors 2 event it will be updated live as you take part in the event.
    - This system will be used for the upcoming summer event as well.​

    Fix it Vendor
    - As usual this vendor is available in the event lobby to resolve any of these problems.
    - Dragging a glowing spear (that looks like a skull) onto the vendor will return the correct glowing spear (usable rare spear).
    - Leather Bustiers of Domination when targeted with the appraise command will be given the correct name.
    - Hue 2118 sandals will be given the correct name when targeted with the appraise command​

    Christmas Instances
    - Reduced the requirement for spawning the Grinch from 9 stolen presents to 8. 10 still spawn in the event area however.​

    Runebook Pen
    - Added a new item that can be used to duplicate one runebooks runes to another runebook.
    - Both runebooks must be in your pack and closed to be copied.
    - Any runes in the destination runebook will be removed.
    - The name of the runebook will also be transferred.
    - These are charged items with limited uses, so choose your copying carefully.
    - There is no skill requirement on the use of these items.

    If you fix a glowing spear and decide you would rather have the skull can it be changed back? If not can we see what the spear looks like? Thank you!

    Runebook pen is such a great idea. Would be a great permanent platinum sink if you put it on the platinum reward vendor too.

    I see all the compendium info is now up for the Halloween mobs except for the Overlord: http://www.uorenaissance.com/info/TheOverlord possible to get that info?

    Also, is there is a scoreboard for the City of the Dead points anywhere?

    Working on the first part, and the second part the data is exported to the website, just need to make the pages to show it. So pretty soon. it will be on your player profile.

    Thanks for all your Hard work in making this the Best UO free server out there. We all appreciate it.
    These new ideas and the Lottery are awesome, I hope that these will soak up the excess plat that has accumulated during the periods that the Plat train was running.
    Would it be possible to make the Cigar equip-able? ( the Ultimate Bank sitting accessory) :)

    Chirs, now that you are working on website info, I see that lately we had an update on Laderboard 2018 but still not match with Lifetime Laderboard or personal profile information.

    Are there different delays between those updates?

    Example with Harpy:

    upload_2019-2-14_12-52-20.png

    But if I look under my personal profile (it is public) I've another number there.

    upload_2019-2-14_12-53-15.png

    No hurry, I think that personal profile is the real and most updated number, but wanted to know if there is an issue with Leaderboard :D
