    To celebrate the re-opening of the CD Mall (yes :party: we're back in our old shop again) we're organising a Christmas Treasure Hunt on Sunday 14th December at 16h00 GMT (that's 4 p.m. UK time - but arrive a little early to make sure you don't miss the start). Everyone on Europa is welcome ...... and everyone who takes part stands an equal chance to win one of the great prizes. There are 8 clues to solve to reach 8 different destinations and we'll hand out the first clue at the CD Mall on the Umbra Road in Malas at 16h00 GMT.

    Here are the prizes :

    1st PRIZE : 1,000,000 gp + Full Virtue Armour Set (8 pieces)

    2nd PRIZE : 500,000 gp + Lady Melisande Hair Dye + Conjurer’s Grimoire

    [​IMG]

    3rd PRIZE : 250,000 gp + 10th Anniversary Sculpture (Luck Sculpture) + A Heritage Token

    [​IMG]

    4th PRIZE : 100,000 gp + Rubble Tree + Spellbook (+2 MR, 24% SDI, 8% LRC)

    [​IMG]

    At the end of the Treasure Hunt, hand in all your clue books and items you've collected along the way, and you'll be entered into a Lucky Draw.

    LUCKY DRAW PRIZE : Soulstone Fragment Token + Sword Display + Spellbook (10% DCI, 28% SDI, +2 FCR, 4% LMC) + Vampire Bat + 2 Heritage Tokens + Bag of Mixed Weps/Sheilds & Undead Slayer Spellbook + Full Set of Clothes of Melissa The Mage + Talons Bite + 2 Scrolls of Alacrity + Burglar’s Bandanna + Helm of Swiftness + Miscellaneous Items

    [​IMG]

    Additionally, there's a special task you have to perform as part of the Treasure Hunt. Here's the prize for the winner of that Mystery Task :

    MYSTERY TASK PRIZE : Hanging Studded Tunic + Hanging Studded Leggings + 2 Heritage Tokens + Spellbook (with +3 MR, 23% SDI, 7% LRC) + 9th Anniversary Coin + Vorpal Blade (Artifact Rarity 12 Repond Slayer) + Quiver of Infinity + Talons Bite + Sentinel’s Guard Shield + 2 Scrolls of Alacrity + Miscellaneous Items

    [​IMG]

    Over the next few days we'll be dropping books with the rules and more details at moongates, banks and dungeon entrances. If you've got any questions then give me a shout on icq (441 733 090) or PM me here. Last year's Treasure Hunt was a great success and we're hoping lots of people turn up to make this year's Hunt just as much fun.

    The CD Mall is on the Umbra Road. Catch the moongate to Umbra in Malas and leave the city by the western exit. This is the Umbra Road, a busy shopping area. CD Mall is 4 or 5 houses up from the city exit - on the right hand side of the road.

    Happy Shopping !

    :lol: There's no accounting for tastes Sir_Bolo. Seriously though, I'm so pleased you're happy with your prize and had a good time. All the CD & MAO guildies had lots of fun organising and running it as well.

    I've asked Mapper to make the draw for the Lucky Draw Prize and once I have the book number I'll post the complete list of winners.

    Can't wait to see Mapper's report.

    (edit : Mapper's awesome report has all the details of the prizewinners, along with screenies : http://uo.stratics.com/news/Europa.shtml

    Must have been one of those paparazzi that are ALWAYS camping outside my house. *Sigh* ........ the price of fame rolleyes:

    Not sure if I'm colour blind ..... but that hair colour looks more pinkish silver to me. Looks very distinguished I think.

    Aye... after all it suits a 10-year veteran like me...

    On the other hand I lost my other prize. My mouse slipped on the Conjurer's Grimoire while donating spellbooks at the library :sad2:

    Luckily I had a spare one.
    Unluckily the reward from your great treasure hunt is now gone forever :sad2:
