    Logged onto to test center this morning and received this in my backpack. Looks like we can expect some 17th anniversary gifts soon!

    17th Anni Bag.png

    Although the bag says 7 items only 2 are visible.

    17th Anni Bag3.png

    17th Anni Sword.png

    17th Anni Towel.png

    I don't quite understand the hand towel, but I like the sword. Plus it can be equipped.

    17th Anni Sword2.png

    When equipped the sword is purely decorative. Somehow you are still able to wrestle with it in hand...

    Any ideas as to what the other 5 items are?

    I just checked one of my TC chars... My hand towel says "Faulinei"

    So I guess They're all names of historical characters. Kind of neat. And frankly, vaguely amusing to me that this specific character got that name. :)

    Yup, my other two TC characters got "Relivinian" and "Clainin"

    since its still on test and can be changed, id suggest making the sword an actual sword, and not blessed so it can be imbued. this would be a really good item for that since there will be a ton of them.

    Maybe were getting near an actual publish since these are on TC now. My worries now are they spent so much time on this last publish you got Halloween around the corner. This has to be my favorite UO holiday and I hope it's not a rehash of previous stuff

    I can't see collecting towels, but there are some I'd like to have if they're named after Ultima history. We already have soap in the game. I think I paid like 20 mill for mine :p

    Very nice. I have just the spot for the towels - Forest View Bath House and Sauna on Europa. I currently have pieces of cloth serving the purpose.

    Just checked out the TC1....would be awesome if the broadsword had spell channeling on it.
    I also hope they give out the possibility of getting a special hued container

    And on top of all those as potential possibilities, there seems to be the shadowlords: Faulinei, Astaroth and Nosfentor.

    Yay! Same exact graphic as the server birth folded sheet! Mine is a different direction, but these might be turnable.

    I hope they can create new art or use different art for the towel rather than using the same graphic as the folded sheet. Perhaps make them dyable. In addition I requested a tool that can either embroider, monogram, stencil, emblazen, or somehow personalize clothes and or jewelry, since our armor and weapons can be.

    Legendary tailor being able to embroider the name of a character they 'target' onto the towels would not be a bad thing ....

    or 5 soulstone frags.....

    and my towel is Blackthorn's
    ..... so since he is actually in the game and our King right now..... does that mean its stolen?

    :( The towel is very cute.
    The clean up rewards are the same as listed before for the next publish. No new deco item is there. :(
    How silly of me to think there might be.

    How hard would that have actually been? They did have some time is all. Why not add a few things? :(

    Should have left made it where you could choose the text or the name of your character. Snowglobe collections or the holiday bells made sense to have historical characters.. but hand towels?

    Nah, they'll be five items that there's no graphics in-client for. They're there, the client just doesn't know how to display them, so they're basically invisible.

    The clean up items are the same as listed before for the next publish. Yes, the mushrooms, drum, pedestal, and talismans.
    I had hope for other deco items added. They did have time to maybe add a few items that already exist/

    At a guess I'd say items 3 and 4 in the bag are likely to be a card and a cake.

    What primitive conditions many of you have been living in :)

    I have had both a towel and a toilet for many years. The toilet was of course constructed but the towel (looks to be the same graphic) I got from an idoc and despite asking on the rares forum etc, have never been able to establish its origins.

    Going strictly by what the names are, I am thinking they are sections to a bar. One of them is a container, so a place to store all of our bottles of assorted pirate drinks and craft wines and ales etc?
    the single bar that is only 1 stone. If they are not literally marble bars. :) that one I have no guess other than a "bar"tender deed.

    Since the sword is tagged with the anniversary greeting I would say there is no "card".

    Or maybe they are like someone said.. candy bars.

    I tried to get inside uo to work last night but could not get it to recognize the files even after putting their paths.
