    Just got back from Walmart...they are already set up for Christmas believe it or not.

    But it got me thinking, whta would be good in UO this year?

    I think instead of new deco (which we all complain about the art) revisit the past. Maybe a gift boxx with a soulstone token, a transfer token, the favorite things from the past? Or even some new item with a use other than deco??

    What do y'all think??

    All I want for Christmas is the Despise snowglobe I've always been missing since they for some reason won't give us one. They could add a few other spots to the list now to commemorate the new expansion... as well as an underworld globe and a few others. How about a snowy scene of Dawn or Paws? Might be neat. Just saying but I'd VERY much like to have Despise to finish off the virtue/anti-virtue collection.

    Snowglobes are always a crowd pleaser. Like @MalagAste said, a Despise globe as well as newer places, The Stygian Abyss, Valley of Eodon, Shadowguard, etc.
    A single transfer token per account would also make an amazing gift for folks without shields, maybe make it shard/account bound?

    Maybe...maybe it's the name? 'A snowglobe of Despise' ?? Give it to someone and it could be misunderstood? o_O not sure.

    Back to the subject matter though, sorry OP! I'm out of fresh ideas for the moment, but am curious what folks think.

    I would LOVE to have a soulstone though that ought to be more of a one per account thing than a one per character... But I would like it.

    I need a golden throne to go with my golden tub.... if you get my drift.

    It would be swell to get a piece of charcoal to fuel our forges.
    Some of us have been good girls, you know!

    Our guild does a rather large scale secret santa. Everyone gets a nice gift. I am looking foward to that.

    I feel your pain.....I ended up just making my own Despise snowglobe to finish the collection lol. I took a normal snowglobe and locked down a "blackened heart from despise" on top of it.

    Or would it be, "A despicable snowglobe?" Hmmmmm...

    I'm going with a Christmas Carol theme:

    • Holiday Gift Ticket that lets you choose any of the previous winter holiday gifts (labelled "from the Ghost of Christmas Past")
    • New holiday boxes with different wrapping paper/shapes (labelled "from Ghost of Christmas Present")
    • A picked-over turkey or goose carcass on a holiday platter (labelled "from the Ghost of Christmas Future")

    That being said, I lost a couple soulstones when I left so I'd be tickled pink for one of those, too!

    I must admit, I loved it when we used to get 'naughty' or 'nice' x-mas presents depending on our karma.
    I want my lump of coal gosh darn it!! .....

    What do y'all think??
    Thanks for the question !

    I like seeing the decorating contests. House decoration, vendor decorations, random free items on vendors or at 5 gold, and maybe a actual player costume outfit. hehe It is lots of fun checking them all out and even decorating yourself. But what I would like to see mostly is the spirit of holiday, happy people, doing good will to new players (that are really new) Oh hmm what else... Just to see everyone having fun and having the best Christmas / Holiday season in the game EVER!! :) Oh it would be nice to have a Christmas Tree deed that lets us have flickering lights on them :) and MORE GARLAND haha ok stopping there lol

    I want a new bug. One that blares "You cannot do that until you eat something!" Or maybe a gypsy wagon. Yeah...

    Never mind... :sad4:
