    As i'm on a rather horrible laptop I didn't even try to get a screenshot, but tonight while on my chessy character I crashed during the miasma invasion of luna bank, I logged back in and my character had changed into some sort of blue Meer Avatar, I saw a few others, but not the same, any idea why this happened? April fools maybe?

    I logged in on one of my chars and it was an Avatar. Saw a few running around Luna and, I think, one at the Township Summit meeting.

    I have no idea what that was all about though.

    Aye there were quite a few posts about this on UO Hall yesterday.

    As for myself, I logged into all 24 of my Ches. Chrs. and NOTHING ! :(

    According to some on UO Hall they suggested I dismount my chrs. unarm and then maybe the April Fools day Avatar would happen to my chrs. *sigh* nope nada nothing.

    I logged onto my 4 Siege Chrs. too, yesterday & zip zero nada.

    So maybe the real joke for April Fools Day is some of us have this happen to our chrs. & some of us, do not ! dunno lol

    To get it to work for me (only tried human characters) I had to log in, dismount, log out and then log back in for it to work. Just dismounting didn't do it. Too little, too late, but....

    Aye, someone said that on UO Hall too, so I did try that...but perhaps the moment had passed by 10am April Fools day the day was *overwith*, anyhow it didnt happen for my chrs. :sad2:

    Sorry to hear that. I noticed that they turned on the April Fools stuff before 10pm (central time) on the 31st, so perhaps they shut it off after 24 hours.

    That said, I was playing on my laptop using the classic client, and while I greatly appreciate the sentiment, and got a chuckle out of it, it wasn't something i would loose sleep over had I missed it.

    Out of curiosity, did you play Lake Austin right when it opened up?

    I might have explored Lake Austin when it first opened up, but I really do not remember. :)

    I have been on Ches. since 98, and Siege too since 2004. The only other shard I ever was on for a couple of years time was Europa, when they had had a huge roleplaying batch of people there, some many yrs. ago.
