    Hi all, this past weekend while doing a bit of idocing I came across a particular item that peaked my interest. I have seen these before, mostly in places like The Glowing Orb. It is your average serverbirth Ceramic Mug, but it contains Seer wine. In this particular case my mug is titled,

    A Ceramic Mug Of UBB 2nd Anniverary Commemorative Wine

    (I wish I could post a pic, prt sc isn't working and neither is my software, if I can get a hand with that I'll throw it up. Also, the typo "Anniverary," instead of Anniversary, is exactly how it is on the mug)

    Now it should be noted that all Ceramic mugs act like this, they will take on the name of whatever is poured into them. My question is, what does something like this do to the value of the mug. I've always wanted a bottle of UBB wine personally (being an Atl history buff), but in most cases the owners aren't interested in selling them and I don't blame them.

    Finally, and certainly not the least part of this discussion, I discovered that the house was owned by none other than Ryna McBegg. I am sure many of you remember her and the many wonderful things she did for this community and Stratics as a whole. Does anyone have any other information of her whereabouts? I certainly hope that wherever she is that she is both happy and healthy.

    Interesting as I also found at a recent IDOC "A Skull Mug With Wench's Warts" Liquor type : Strong Mist, Distiller : Ryna McBegg..... I would imagine this is just a skull mug full of a chars home made product ? They can change the title of the mug like that ?

    I got a whole keg of that at the same idoc. She had multiple houses and another one actually fell right next to the one I got the seer wine ceramic cup out of. Yeah, that is just her own player made brew. Still a nice piece of history. I was genuinely surprised to see so many recent items in her house as I wasn't even aware she still played. I've had her old beggar guilds guildstone for over 3 years, I would have gladly given it back had I known.

    Sorry to be off topic but this makes me ultra sad when a well known player retires from the game.

    Oh, you aren't off topic at all and are more right than you know Bon, she was a wonderful person.
