Please join me on Sunday May 25th at 4:00 PM EST for a xshard player run event, I’ll be celebrating planting flowers at the New Magincia Gardens in a new and creative way. Whether you part take in the dating game or not, come and plant a memory. For those who are interested in more:

Do you have a hard time meeting people to spawn with? Wish you had someone to get your heals when you PvP? Are you shy, never know exactly what to say? Are you just tired of playing UO solo? Or perhaps you are in the mood for adventure, romance and fun? If so, please send me a message to sign up for Ultima Online’s first ever blind speed dating game. A completely anonymous way to meet and talk to a player you may never have met or considered getting to know. The process is simple.

All participants will be assigned a number, create a clever dating name if they have a free character slot or use a trial account, log in your newbie clothes to meet a player for a 10 – 15 minute conversation (example pictured below), then move on to meet someone else until everyone has met. If you enjoyed your conversation, you’ll write their name and number down to give me. At the end if both parties enjoyed getting to know each other, I will share your contact information only with your permission. If you didn’t enjoy it, don’t worry, just move on, no stress, no fuss. It’s just for fun.

Ladies in waiting will be placed strategically in remote romantic areas. Gents will be gated in to meet them one at a time. When the next gate opens, the guys will leave the ladies for the next location until everyone has met each other. After that is done the guys and gals will meet separately for a his and hers stag party to compare notes. Finally everyone will come together and finish in the New Magincia gardens to plant a seed in memory of the event.

I am Governor Nails Warstein, let me be your host and broker your fun! Allow me to shepherd you on a new romantic adventure while we explorer new relationships that might have passed us by completely anonymously. So don’t be prideful; humble yourself for a brand new UO experience. Send me your private messages or ICQ 150528775 to sign up today!


(Player Event) Shard Public Auction

April 21, 2014 By: Flair Category: Siege Perilous News

On Saturday, 10th May at 3pm Eastern, the representatives of the King’s Council will be holding a shard public auction in order to give the people of Siege an opportunity to trade goods, promote shard interaction, and raise money for town treasuries. If successful, the event could become a biannual event at the start of each governorship term of office (or conceivably even twice per term). This thread is intended to give advance notice of the auction; further details and the official list of lots for sale will come in May.

Venue & auctioneer

The auction will take place at Gilfane Arena and I will be acting as auctioneer. Kattasrophe is working as chief assistant and will be organizing complementary activities.

Commission & donations

The auctioneer will levy a charge of 5% on all lots sold and the money so raised [the “Town Fund”] will be split equally between the seven towns involved (Jhelom, Minoc, Moonglow, New Magincia, Skara Brae, Trinsic, Vesper). If any member of the public wishes to contribute further, then they are welcome to make additional contributions in four possible ways:

a) By donating an item(s) entirely to the Town Fund, in which case 100% of the auction sale price will go into the fund.

b) By donating an item(s) to ONE particular town, in which case the remaining 95% of the sale price will go directly to the specified town.

c) By donating an item to York’s new player vendor subsidy program, in which case the remaining 95% of the sale price will go directly to this cause.

d) By donating a lump some of cash to the Town Fund or to specified town(s). This is no different than giving cash directly to the town heralds, except that your donation will appear in the official accounts and will therefore be recorded for posterity.

Reserve Price

Items submitted for sale may be assigned a minimum price that the seller is willing to accept, although items may be rejected if the auctioneer views the reserve as unreasonably high and unlikely to lead to a sale.

Advanced bids

To aid those unable to attend the live event or find a suitable proxy, the auctioneer will take private bids in advance of the sale. Further details on this service will be posted nearer the event.

Submitting items for sale

To raise interest and awareness for the auction, the public is encouraged to announce items for sale as soon as possible. However, as the auction house will not be taking receipt of goods until May, anything so announced/listed is not final and could be withdrawn by the seller.

To submit your items, PM me here. Be sure to include any reserve prices you wish to assign the goods, although these could be changed later. All items are presumed to be for the benefit of the seller unless otherwise stated. If you wish to donate the entire proceeds of an item to one of the causes (Town Fund, individual town, subsidy program), please clearly state this. Items donated to a cause will state the name of the donor unless anonymity is specifically requested. General items for sale will not list the name of the seller unless it is necessary to do so.

If you are intending to sell low-priced items, please try and group them together where possible. What constitutes a “low price” is unclear at this point. Once official submissions are taken in May, we should have a better idea of the amount of items that are likely to be for sale and what to set the minimum requirements at.

Official accounts

A record of sale prices and all monies raised will be published after the auction. The auctioneer will deposit the money raised for each town directly with the heralds in the presence of Kattasrophe and/or another creditable witness.

Confidentiality & liability

All reserve prices, advance bids and other privileged information from sellers will be kept in confidence by the auctioneer except in the event of a new auctioneer having to be appointed due to illness or force majeure.

Final responsibility for items being sold, monies raised thereon, and the conduct of the auction, lies with the auctioneer and not the members of the King’s Council.

If anyone can suggest an amusing name for this type of auction, “Townaid” or something, please do so.
