    If you could create your own rare, what would it look like? what color would it be? what would it be called? would it have any sound effects or visual effects?
    Thought this would be a fun thing to discuss, maybe if we're lucky an EM will like one of the ideas and create it :)

    I would make red epaulettes named "Epaulettes Ornately Decorated With The Insiginia of King Blackthorn of Britannia", they would make a red sparkle visual effect when double clicked, both when worn and while locked down.

    I'd use the pie graphic, it would be blaze colored, named "Jack's Famous Cow Pie", it would make the "moo" sound on proximity when locked down, and it would act as a container.

    That's not asking too much is it? lol

    id love to have a statue, like the couple in minoc by the provisioner orthe one in moonglow by where you do the human to elf quest. I don't think the color would really matter. I think the stone look is just fine. perhaps a spellbook or robe with a unique title and color with my name included. example : "Igg A Pie's Journal of Adventures" in a abyssal color. of all the things I would love to have in the game would be a one of a kind item, wearable, and esp named after myself would be totally awesome! I just really like obscurity and to know I had one item that will never be duped because it was in my possession from the beginning is one of the few things in UO I would really love to own.

    A Royal Britanian Architect's Sextant

    Europa gold colored, and when double clicked, it brings up a map of all IDOCs on the current facet.

    I would like to have a glowing sarcophagus of an ancient Paladin.
    It could emit a sparkling or glowing aura when locked down. could double as a container.
    I would also create like 3 different ones to make a set. Maybe have one that was ancient mystic and
    ancient necromancer one. you could do them in like 3 different colors with each having a different
    glow color when locked down. One could also go as far as collecting some sort of daily buff off them,
    much like the luck buff you get off the 10th anniversary statue.

    Kittens with PLAYERS names on them instead of devs. They got soooooooooo close! Tired of dev names on everything... player names are much more fun, personal, and ultimately collectible.

    how about instead of a new drop, just make the existing kittens and puppies able to be bred. So you can cross two different cat or dog types and get a new kitten/puppy raised by brian... Turn it into something like gardening! :)

    Hello All,

    Given that I like, just as many others here do, decorating things. All I would like is to be able to dye anything in game. I think it would be wicked if I could 'paint' my rubble walls or change the colour my Two Storey statue etc.

    Just a thought ......

    Thank you

    Olive Oyle

    P.S. Ohh - And to be able to customise, even if only in a small way, my Castle.

    A chest called "Queen Arya's Memoirs"
    Make it so you have a choice of several design options, can be dyed any color and have the option of making it talk.
    Mine would look like a toad and when you walked passed it, it would cast a spell of wart removal. One spell per each Million dollar check deposited

    I would like a magical wand that when you click it and place the curser on to any statue it would become animated. Such when a player comes within a few steps of the statue it would bow with a phrase such as Greetings, or if the two story statue lifts it's spear in a threatening pose "The Shall not Pass". Have like 5 different movements and may a dozen phrases that are dependent of the type of statue you animate. Start with like 10 charges and then you would have to recharge the staff some how.

    I would be nice to have some items drops that have useful mods on them, whether it be clothing, armor, talisman...

    I would create a "Soul Wand" that would spawn as a glacial wand with no mods. When equipped the first time it would run some behind the scenes formulas based on the characters skill levels and combinations, reputation, and luck to determine the mods to apply. Properties and weights would be assigned from the revamped loot artifact class. The equipper would get the option to select the new weapon type, generate the mods, then name the weapon.

    With proper coding and the wide variability between skills, reputation, and luck it would likely be unique... But should also be reproducible ( if the same character equipped 3 items in a row, all 3 items would have the same properties.

    'Adeka's Bright Light'
    A blessed, equip-able candle with spell channeling that granted the holder night sight.
    It would also sparkle if you came close when locked down.

    -OR-

    'Adeka's Pin Cushion'
    A abyssal blue sewing kit that acted as a small container.


    I'm not trying to break the system here, just create realistic items.
