You guys ROCK. Just sayin.
no YOU rock
I GET IT! EA owns the rights to that movie! We're all cat people! HAR!
How do you get out of it?
Nevermind I got it.
mount up, it will turn you back
Mount gets you out.
Thats just weird.
That was fun
Now if I could just speak Na'vi.....
What does "Hurr ******** shapechange" have to do with April Fools other than... nothing at all?
The Avatar is big part of UO lore and this Christmas there was a rather impressive movie released called Avatar, thus it's a play on both those things....
No ****, Sherlock. But that still doesn't make it have anything to do with a day devoted to pranks.
Well, it helps to have a sense of humor. I know a bunch of people who were surprised and got a chuckle out of it.
sense of humor, Aran has not.
He's an ass yes, but at least he's consistent, and an Equal Opportunity Offender...
well i am a fool for ladys and if it dont rime with getting some thing nasty i dont want it
then again i am in thailand so chance of it be a boy is bigger i guess lol
Some girl came up to me asking why she was an avatar. I told her she won UO and congratulated her before running off.
lol you shood have told her that he had won this years dragg queen race to fel and would be exspecting lots of pks to revard here with the award best lady on plantet
When did tiller men talk? I was on a boat fishing and the tiller man starts telling a story. "Ar! Did I ever tell the about the time I was in Moonglow and I met a fellow who could tell you all about about every sort of animal there ever was? Anyways, 'tis a dull story." Then afterwards he tells a story about the time he went to bucs den.
You've had enough. Pass it now.
How about, next time you log in all your character's skills are set to 0, but just yours. I think that would be a pretty funny prank. snap:
And they never revert back?
They should have opened a classic shard and then deleted it the next day.
actually no I would have cried.
Bt, s'true eard t mself, ere.
Glory days, yeah they pass you by...
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now. It's just a sprinkling for the May Queen.
actually i have no idea what you are all talking about, i just wanted to quote someone quoting someone who was quoting someone quoting someone.
In the wink of a young girl's eye. Glory days.
Black Sun, now i'm an avatar..
Blu skin, but the same skills and pets.
It's the 1 avril joke? It's a an april fool?
Can I play without consequence?
Aran has a sense of humor, but he only laughs at other peoples' expense.
See, that's something Aran would laugh at, assuming it was permanent.
I'm kind of agreeing with Aran, only more diplomatically.
I have a passionate dislike of April Fools day, so most of the "hilarity" that occurs falls on stony ground. An entire day dedicated to trying to dupe people with misinformation strikes me as more annoying than funny.
I can see what they're doing, at least as far as is understood here (there may be more, that has yet to be understood). But there's no suspension of disbelief, no subtle misinformation, or bait/switching.
Y'all are so quick to jump on Aran, which I'll admit is a personal hobby of mine. But the root question is a fair one - Where's the prank?
lol that is pretty slick
especially since someone cracks new content on every patch
hard to keep secrets!
The prank is logging on expecting to see your character standing there but instead seeing a blue avatar from a movie.
Had it happen alot tonight while trying to PvP and outa nowhere BLAM!!! this damn avatar then face down and ass up!!! not so funny at all ppl.
I like how UO see's avatar being successful and attempts to put it on there failing game...
Happened to me with all 3 char that logged in hidden, unmounted.
Pranks? What pranks? I don't have time for such frivolous pursuits - I'm down here in the Rat Cavern searching high and low for that damned Rodent Realtor. I bought an UO lottery ticket for 5 million that offers a house plot in the Abyss ...
That's not a prank.
Oh so you've not been to speek with the Meer like that yet
NO, I ROCK
Yes, it's just an april fools joke. If you mount your horse (or whatever you prefer to ride) or start flying (if you're a gargoyle) you will turn back to your normal looking character. It only changes your appearance for a bit. You can't control when you change, it happens when you log in.
I think it is very cool.........my daughter logged in last nite and was in a panic. She was yelling in vent, MOM, why am I an Avatar and why am I in a weird form. Then I realize it was an April Fool's Day joke and I got a huge laugh out of it.
My "problem" with this sort of thing is that I'm sort of a purist from old school roleplay.
"If it happened, it happened."
So silly things like this that make no sense and don't stick to the lore bother me. I just try to ignore it. It is too much like WoW goofiness.
Nothing happened to any of my chrs. They all look the same. I guess it didn't work for any of them.
If it's not working on your characters, are you logging in mounted?
Think even holding a weapon can prevent the avatar transformation. At least that´s the only explanation I can think of for my untransformed and unmounted archer. Or it´s because she was blue even before today
ROFL I agree...
I'm right after you...
