    I have a friend that recently reopened one of his really old accounts. On the account he found a runebook that he gave me. The runebook is named A Bloodstained Runebook Artifact Rarity 11, . I tried to look it up but couldnt find any info on it...
    Figured that i would come here to try and find some info on it...

    Does anyone know where it came from?
    How old it is?
    How rare it is?
    The value of it?


    Any help is greatly appreciated..

    Thats what i thought it might be... But the "Bloodstained Runebook" is in Italic print and not normal printing.. Can you type like that on runebooks?
    It also say Artifact Rarity 11, and that part is in normal print

    Not sure if it is still possible. ON RUNEBOOKS, to the best of my knowledge, it doesn't as the <> changes to ().

    You used to be able to use html coding to change the text appearance on runebooks, houses, books, bracelets of binding, etc. You could change the font, make additional lines below (your artifact 11) and change the color of the text background. In the past, scammers would use these books or similar html items to swindle people who didn't know as they were very easily made and very inexpensive.

    If it no longer can be made, it might be worth a few million to a novelty collector of such items. Hope this helps.

    You can still do html text/font/color and highlight on runebooks, books, runes, bracelets of binding

    and it is done via a 3rd party app so it is an exploit and dont post/pm how to I wont say

    but any items being sold that claim to be HTML or have colored text etc are not worth jack.. lots for sale at the rares fest area on ATL

    Hmmmmm, I find that interesting. Especially seeing as how ALOT of the books dropped on the shard advertising the events during the rares fest had that very HTML color coding on it. Is there a legal non 3rd party app to do the same thing?

    Books can be HTML named without any 3rd party apps.

    Books can be done easily since the "<" and ">" are not affected and the body text and color tags can be used.

    But with rune books, bracelets of binding etc people are using a third party app to allow the use of "<" and ">" characters and can use breaks (adding text to a new line) thus giving them the ability to put a "artifact rarity" line in to confuse people.

    Prove it. Try to create a runebook or bracelet of binding with today's date in any color you choose.

    Just tried with CC client, and all '<' or '>' were changed to '(' and ')' respectively. Any third party app just *interacts* with the UO Client but thats all, you cannot change a behavior that runs on the server.

    Cool, was why I was asking. Did not think the folks would be doing anything questionable/illegal in advertising the rares fest.

    Thanks :)
