    I've been doing the same thing. So far, I have a box with 99 different piles of cloth in it.
    Looking at the hues list with InsideUO, the trick-or-treat colors seem to be numbers 2499-2642, arranged in 12 sets of 12 half-identical colors. A gross amount of different colors to collect, and a real pain to gather enough for a bolt.

    How are you collecting the cloth?

    While you are Trick-or-Treating, one of the tricks will turn your characters clothing and armor odd colors. While the clothing is an odd color, use a GM or better tailor and scissors to cut the clothing back into cloth and you will then have "Cut Cloth" of the odd color. Use the sewing kit's "Combine Cloth" option to turn it into folded cloth that will stack properly with others of the same exact color.

    Do you loose your clothing items and thus have to keep replacing it?

    Yes, you lose your clothing, and you'll be going through a lot of cloth. I've been making a tattsuke-hakama, hakama, formal shirt, cloak, and a robe for each batch, which costs 76 cloth, and nets me 39 of the special cloth when cut up at 103 tailoring.

    just GMed Begging tonight!
    and just found out about the cloth, and have tailoring and begging!
    How much can you cut up before it runs out?
    and by the way, do the special begging items come from trick or treating or just targeted begging?
    Thanks all, wish me luck!

    Can you gain in begging by just trick or treating?
    Or are the two seperate?

    Would be nice to just go trick or treating and get begging gains...since you get begging items doing T&T

    Milk/scarry cake/cookie items so far..

    Yes you do receive the begging items just from trick or treating. In order to get the begging item you need Gm Begging and you can either Beg for the items or just Trick Or Treat for them.

    I have been getting 22 - 33 cloth per time.

    I am using a Gargoyle and targeting Cloth Armor and a Fancey Robe - Cloth Arms, Chest, Legs, Kilt, and Wings. I get 4 - 6 cut each time it tricks. I use EC and am targeting each piece while on my paperdoll using scissors 6 times and storing each peice after I make it and put it on. You can cut the items right on your body.

    There are others undressing to a salvage bag and salvaging all each time and getting upwards of 44 pieces using human clothing, I dont know what they are makng thow.

    I have gahtered 99 different colors and am now only getting one or two new ones per every twelve or so stacks. I have a few colors upwards of 100 pieces.

    I suggest you leave them in the square cut pieces and not combine them into folded cloth as folded they are harder to see what the special colors are.

    Good luck only a few days left to get them :sad4:

    Attached is the 2 Tone cloth that I have Collected in a non-stop fashion for 4 days. Many people are getting the idea that there are more then 144 colors. At first I also thought this as I had over 200 colors. As soon as I started Combining them I ended up with the 144 colors in 12 colors and 12 shades each. If anyone has any they may think Im missing Please Post so we can get a true count of this cloth.

    I posted this question in uo hall and didn't get an answer. I tend to be very cautious as I hate to lose my account or get others in trouble. I wanted to put Halloween
    Cloth items( doublets) in a Halloween treat bag. Is this allowed? I wasn't sure if this counted as an exploit or if it counts as an Easter egg. Can anyone let me know

    I can't see where there is any harm in collecting the cloth. I'm sure they are aware of collectors doing for the past couple of years and could easily have
    created a fix for it. It's not game altering as far as PVP or PVM, nor are they uhber rare. No one except the people in charge of the rules of the game could
    answer your question with 100% accurcy.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. :) I thought the cloth would probably be okay . It reminded mr of the seed oops where we could suddenly cross breed to get the cool colored hops, or like the 8 x 8 skill. I don't know if I will give the outfits, after all I don' t have the colors yet .

    Silly question probably, but is there a macro for putting the cloth directly into the salvage bag? If I have more then one thing on it tends to change back before I get it all in the bag. I am finding myself with just enough time for a robe. Scissors don't work on the colored clothing only the salvage bag. I wasn't here before but I understand that is new.

    They say timing is everything :). But to answer your question, I have tried to use the macro's provided by UO and have not been able to find a way. In most
    cases with practice, I can get a robe and a cloak cut up providing 15 pieces. Sometimes they change back really fast, it's fun and kinda addicting, I'm up to about 124 differant colors. I started about 5 days ago after GM begging, finally got the guillitine too. Need to get some bones next.
