    I've done 7 chars on about 15 shards so far and still going. I like they gift boxes rather than bags though. They look alot nicer.

    These are the Hues colors for the boxes that I have so far. I've received many double and triple hues but I've received only one Crimson Red and Ice Blue Hue which are in the bottom right corner of the picture. I'll let ya know if there are any changes or if a new hue pops up as I continue logging in characters.

    *Starts a really bad rumor*
    Maybe the reason Mesannas name isn't on a Lobster is because she left us for World of Warcraft!

    Merry Christmas Mesanna!

    I have a white box! (that sounded wrong) As soon as I find the shard it's on again, I'll try to post a picture. Spent hours last night trying to find the black one. I also have a silvery purple giftbox with a black bottom on it and the same one that KingHen posted above.

    Thanks for posting the other pic Gareth.

    I asked her if there was something she wasn't telling us.... I got a "What?"..... And I said well... dozens of people asking why your name isn't on any Lobster... So I asked Point Blank... "You leaving us?" Her reply was "Not unless they make me". To which I said, "They better NOT!" She told me, "I will stay with UO till they turn off the lights if they let me"........ however when I asked her if she "Prepared" any Lobster..... I didn't get a reply.

    Wow, that's a great reference! Thanks to everyone who helped contribute. Are we calling this a complete tally of the boxes?

    EDIT: Nope. Unless these are just the 'rare' ones, I have more boxes than pictured here. A lot more.

    What tool are people using to get the color numbers? Or is that a function included in pinco's UI for EC?

    I use a program called ******* and only use it to hue and extract artwork. I basically pulled up each holiday box and started randomly hueing them until it matched Nine Dark Moons list. I cant mention it by name since it can do other things but its just like InsideUO. (Yes the boss lady and Mesanna know I use it for the powers of good.)

    I am not personally going to label them "rare", I just started making a grid of all the boxes with hues > 128.
    99% of the boxes I've found so far are within normal cloth dye tub range (hues 1-128) but these 8 "unusual" colors fall in the > 128 range (they're actually all > 1900), so for me, that makes them worth hunting out and collecting. Especially the Abyssal colored ones - so cool :)
    I use a program I'm not allowed to mention here either, but also ONLY for good. I don't care for the Enhanced Client, so I can't use Pinco's program.

    well, with 4 designs per box (5 if you count both facings of the rectangular one), there's 128x4 distinct graphics for regular colored boxes, and 8x4 graphics for the "rare" color ones.

    You
    I understand what you are saying, but as an FYI for those that don't know, you can turn the long boxes with a deco tool.
