    Sandals and Masks Don't Count !

    I see a pink pony and I wanted it painted black
    Only thing it should be for is a tamer on it's back
    I see that most of us walk by dressed in Trammy clothes
    Let's ignore that for now till this monstrosity is disposed

    I see a line of nightmares with tamers on their backs
    Spent hours on banks roofs, with Trammel on their backs
    I see people accept this display and quickly look away
    It's not the same, they say; It's part of our day to day

    Look inside yourself, have you painted your UO black?
    This game that I adore, please don't paint it black
    Maybe it will just fade away and we'll forget it just like that
    It's not easy to please every one when we riot at the drop of a hat

    It's here, it's there, we can't go back
    Yes, pink is bright. That we all know
    Maybe Boothby can mod this thing to save your eyes
    Do you wanna see it painted, painted, painted, black?
    Yeah?

    I thought the donation shop would have caused a scene and instead it's a pink horse.

    Not to mention a pink horse just sold for 10s of millions. Ladies and gentlemen, trammel snuck in the back door a while ago.

    Also, ShadowJack, please read the details of the CUB thread and Copper Coin addition so you don't misrepresent the shard with your misunderstanding of the systems in place.

    Scientists just put the Trammsday Clock 30seconds forwards... states 6.30 Minutes till Midnight now.

    Purple Horses for 2 players dont affect me a lot tbh, but if those are just ideling in town.. id hate it!
    As also mentioned in previous posts... i like this server because of the looks and setting.

    How color blind are you that you think that pink horse looks like a TB faction horse? Also the faction horses are restricted to oranges thus no bank sitting afk with them AND they existed in the "real" UO during this era.

    It's not trammel.

    Trammel is when staff interfere with player-player interactions through new game mechanics. For example "Too many people are complaining about PKs" - Solution: Create a special land where they can't be PKd. of "My courtyard isn't secure" - Solution: magically go against all logic and allow a mechanic to unmark runes to courtyards.


    It's sort of the negative aspects of democracy. Most people aren't thieves, so add a rule that nerfs stealing and "most" people will be happy. Continue down this path and you reach trammel.


    Pink horses? As long as they aren't any more powered than typical animals you can get in the game, then who cares? So it can be bonded? So what? Eventually that player will quit and it will quietly vanish. Or they will trade it to someone who then has to re-bond it and it might die in that timeframe. Or it might get traded to new players every time someone quits and exist indefinitely. It has no effect on the game though. Color isn't trammel.

    With one day left for this event, still only 2 of the special mounts have spawned (and survived).
    One, Evil Dead, Erza Scarlet and 2 others like this.

    Wish the event was longer. Some of us work 60+ and it's hard to find the time. Great event!
