    The Autumn Rares Festival will be held on Catskills:
    November 5th, 6th, and 7th.


    Rares Fest Location West Of Umbra:

    [​IMG]

    We are going to change up a few things this time around. We will not have any “events” to occupy your time while on Catskills.

    We are giving the Rares Fest back to the items!

    So, in this effort, we have decided to truly make it a “weekend” festival. Vendors will be given out starting Thursday, November 4th. This will be unpopular with some of the people wanting to sell off some “non-rares” to get some gold on shard, but it’s my opinion that the pre-selling of items has spread the festival out too thin and by the time the weekend arrives, a lot of people are flat worn out.

    Another major change: Rares Auction.

    We will be moving this up front as the Official Kickoff Event. We will start the auction at 7 eastern on Friday, the 5th. There will be NO ITEM LIMIT. We will auction items til they are gone. Server down time be damned! We will start it again when we come back on-line if necessary.

    Saturday morning, we will hopefully be catching up on some sleep and the rest of the day will be strictly a shopping day. No distractions. Just wheelin’ and dealin’. (Maybe, there could be a secret scavenger hunt for late night power gamers on Saturday)

    Sunday we will have closing ceremonies including an awards ceremony similar to the one they did on Great Lakes. Categories include: Best Dressed Vendor, Best Dressed Attendee, Best Stocked Vendor, etc. All categories will be announced at the start of the festival.

    Our Event Moderators and Mesanna have pledged support and we will have perma-gates to the festival site.

    Festival Endorsed Brokers:

    There are quite a few brokers these days and a few that are around have “earned” their reputation by fancy artwork in their Stratics signatures. Please use caution when trading at Rares Fest or at any time in game.
    If it can’t be sold or bought off a vendor, please contact me or another of the people off this list.

    Lykor ICQ 495659440
    Manticore ICQ 123172317
    Diablo ICQ 460228443
    Restroom Cowboy ICQ 63999499

    Catskills Museum Coalition Auction:
    (Fee Free Auction)

    Auction is going to be Friday November 5th - 7 pm Eastern - until……

    How To Submit:

    When submitting your item, make sure that you only give your item to me, Lykor. I will have something on starting at the beginning of the festival that will distinguish me. Also, I will be the only person taking items and handling them during the auction. I will only accept items over the counter at the Rares Auction House. I will have designated times that I will be taking items that I will post the week before the Festival starts.

    Please have this complete before you submit:

    1. Place your item in a bag
    2. Place a book in the bag with your name as the title and contact info
    (ICQ preferred) Then on page one: Title of item, a brief description
    and a starting bid

    EXAMPLE BOOK :

    [​IMG]

    Finally, please do not attempt to submit items or collect fees right before (there will be a cutoff announced), during, or immediately after an auction as it causes too much confusion for the staff as they are preparing for, conducting, or attempting to conclude an auction. While from your perspective, an auction worker may not look busy, they are frantically working to track items in databases, update lists, and communicate with other auction workers. While it may look easy, a tremendous amount of time and effort is spent behind the scenes to bring you this exciting auction!!! So please be considerate of the staff during these times. After the auction give the staff time to clean everything up and document numbers before collecting. It’s going to be a long night and some people may not get their auction winnings til the morning. We will do our best to get them out ASAP.

    And finally, Please Post Here For Your Reserved Vendor Spot!!!

    For now, I'm going to limit this to one reserved vendor per person.

    We will have at least 2 vendor houses, plus overflow at the auction house. I'm sure before it's all said and done, we'll have room for a spare vendor or two for you.

    But for now, let's just keep it at one :)

    * ANNOUNCEMENT *

    These vendors are for selling RARES. These are not to pawn off the stuff you have stacking up in your house. That is what Luna is for.

    If you do not know the history of this Festival, it is a multi-year event where lovers of UO Pixel crack get together to buy, sell and trade our Rare Items.

    Rare Items, as defined by the collecting community at large, include Server Births, Seer Items, EM Items, Rubble (and other no longer spawning items), and rare clothing( sewn by, double blessed, etc.)

    Bugged items are permissible to sale at the festival and many people collect them.

    I will not discriminate against changling duped items for the purpose of the vendor house because I know that is just about a split issue among the community.

    This will be the "rule of thumb":

    If we see a vendor that is not

    90% Rares/10% Padding,

    we will have issue.

    Any vendors that do start stocking majority regular items will be blocked.

    Sorry folks, just trying to head this one off at the pass!

    It is more of a visual block than a actual block. You stack cloth up and over the vendor.

    The ppl that abuse this will be banned from the auction. And they will miss out on any "special" opportunities of the weekend :)

    Is that the consequence with "teeth" that everyone was wanting to hear?

    I think the vendor which sell exploit items should be rejected after a warning.

    How Unfortunate for the Toad Town Merchants Faire-

    Back in September I posted for Atlantic shards Toad Towns Merchants Faire for that very same weekend
     
  48. Fraggles

    Fraggles Guest

    odd that rares fest is less then 3 weeks away and only 28 vendor spots are claimed and the thread was nearly on page 3 of the forum. is the lack of intrust for this rares fest due to the fact that vendors will not be allowed until thursday night? lack of events? or the auction set up? i personly am abit reluctent to attend do to the fact we cant claim vendors until thursday. alot of people like to sell items through out the week to have gold to spend at the fest and it also makes it seem like a longer event and gives people who are not on much a chance to participate by having more options as to when they can go and buy items. if someone is going to spend about 50m on xfer tokens they want to make it seem more worth while to have 5 days to spend and shop and sell items as opposed to 2 1/2 days. also having events and giveaways all week makes for a more entertaining time for everyone and gives people more of a chance to mingle and discuss rares and meet new people.
    this is my opinion and was wanting to know others imput on the subject

    I think it will be fine, if its a smaller fest it is a smaller fest. The only thing that I would do different is have the auction Sat night to give people time to build up gold to bid on items. Either way though i am sure Lykor and crew will put on a decent shindig. And i for one am looking forward to it.

    Tell you what, next time you host the festival. Then you can do whatever your heart desires. Lykor and Cats took this on so they can run it as they please. Nobody else stepped up to the plate. I for one can't wait, as this will most likely be my last Rares Festival.
