    Pre-fest will officially start on Monday the 14th. The festival itself will start on Friday the 18th.

    All times are in EST! http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ can help you convert EST to your local time. :)

    [​IMG] UO Radio will be broadcasting from the festival throughout the week - give them a listen at http://www.uoradio.com/ ! Detais at http://stratics.com/threads/uo-radio-at-the-chessiefest-2015.350090


    Vendor policy:
    • For anyone who wants them early, I will start assigning vendors once the fest houses are all ready, starting on Saturday night.
    • Rare item vendors should have only non-spawning items.
    • Non-rare item vendors can stock anything which is legal to sell/own.

    Auctions policy:
    • Only give items to Brian for the trader's auction.
    • Only give items to Brian or Captn Norrington for the silent auction.
    • Only give items to Ivy for the live auction.
    • For all auctions, mailboxes will be provided. If you must give an item to the auctioneer directly, confirm their identity first. Do not give any auction items to other staff members!

    Safety:
    • 1 bat spawns in the fest area. Do not leave pets unattended. Only go AFK when your character is safe to do so. We cannot control what may be lured, herded, released, or summoned in the fest area. (Anyone caught doing so will be paged on, and may be banned from other events at the discretion of fest organizers.)

    I pray this new gold conversion and trade window is in place for the festival. It will make all the auctions so much easier for everyone especially the hosts.

    At the Lake Superior Meet and Greet last night, Mesanna said they were shooting for September 29th for the publish, so unfortunately this won't be the case.

    On the flip side, it will make getting gold back off of Chesapeake pretty easy. :)

    *You've found a bottle...there appears to be a message inside*

    To Whom It May Concern

    I just wanted to give a heads up to those attending the Pitmuck tours on Thursday the 17th.

    I've been shadowing a group of pirates for about 2 weeks now, while they're searching for lost treasure.
    While they were digging up the latest chest, I was able to stealthily make my way into their Captain's quarters,
    where I happened to take notice of their charts. It appears that they may be heading to Horseshoe Isle,
    more commonly known on Chessy as Pitmuck Island.

    I've seen these pirates fight some nasty creatures that stand in their way. I've also seen them run like fools from
    some even worse creatures that guard the loot, Lich Lords to Titans to Ancient Wyrms.

    I do hope this reaches you in time


    Sincerely,
    S.

    I thought this was pretty awesome:

    Whoever made it put a LOT of thought into it; it looks exactly like a carnival midway, right down to the stuffed animals hanging from the booths.

    I encourage anyone attending the festival to promote the festival on Facebook & Twitter if you have UO Profile there like I do, or a lot of UO Friends. Also spam in general chat about it for all those returning players who don't use Stratics, or don't check the rares forum.
