    Ah, thats what struck me down. Just saw a grey screen after Virtuebane attacked me.

    And the most misleading name of the night award goes to: English Pitbull...

    English Pitbull: "Can someone translate to german pls?"

    I've left the screen shots with my UI in, so you can see the text and paperdolls etc. I didn't record any of the service, as the mourners repeating the sermon made it impossible to follow. And when the Bane and Blackrock Daemons first spawned, things got too hectic...

    But starting with the scene on arrival; I gather Leo Marsden helped out with providing the initial flowers... and the Guards helped out with the initial crowd control as you can see!

    Then Virtue Bane appeared; he mocked the deceased Dawn, and grandstanded a bit, which I largely missed due to all the spell spam alas... (I have Yell and Event on separate channels but none of the plot was in that I'm afraid). EM Layne later explained that Virtuebane took the Crystal from Ricardo amongst all the chaos. He could not however answer which Ricardo... apparently no one in the room saw when he arrived, whether with Avery or not.

    There is it seems at least 2 versions of Ricardo in the current fiction, one with Zhah, and one with Avery. We know the one with Zhah had at least a piece of the Crystal, and that Uskadesh was a traitor; but whether one, or both Ricardos are double agents too we can't be certain of. If it was the one with Avery who came to the funeral, it's possibly Virtue Bane didn't have the Crystal and today's events are largely as experienced... and as he's had one taken from him too, there's definitely more than one part of the Crystal, one of which Zhah still has. If it was Zhah's Ricardo instead, it could also have been a set up by Virtue Bane still, just like most of his actions so far, as Uskadesh has had access to that Ricardo for quite some time.

    And then Virtue Bane got stuck into us!

    We got him down to around 92% health when suddenly Bane Dragon Riders and Blackrock Elementals arrived... Mass chaos ensued of course! You've all seen them by now, so no screen shots of those; I do not however know if they also dropped the new armour... I didn't get any, but so many people had looting rights that's not surprising.

    I also didn't take many screen shots of the funeral procession, which walked towards Yew centre, then went back north to the Abbey, and around the left to the small archipelago here;

    This will be her final resting place, although not her final resting state; EM Layne promised to use flowers donated to the Wedding Chapel in Britain to make a more scenic view into eternity for Dawn. What I wonder does "Atenio" mean in that screen shot? But it was good to see people return shortly after, those people with a rather longer attention span than the immature little small minds who tried to ruin the day had already got bored, and remembered Dawn in their own way and in their own words...

    Nobody listens to me :( 'Ricardo' was there from well before the start of the event, as were Avery, Sherry, and a couple of others... his paperdoll (and several other NPC ones tonight) labelled him as 'Ricardo the Vendor'. In your first screenshot, he's the guy in orange, back row of the seats, facing away from the coffin and staring at the Yew guardsmen....

    Doubtless there will be some thin excuse about total chaos, hordes of golems, and multiple deaths to cover up not listening to anything I say .... :mf_prop:

    Yet another event which gives rise to one of the great mysteries of UO.

    Why do some parents let their 5 year olds stay up so late?.

    Oh I listen to you, and saw him; I meant which Ricardo, as there's two... I presume Avery would notice if "His" Ricardo didn't come with him to the funeral... but who knows? All we know is one was there.

    Ricardo the vendor, you say?
    So Virtuebane just, well, bought it maybe :D?


    Also, cant see the screenshots :( the downside of being in China. Hopefully I wont miss too many more events over the next week!

    I've done some investigating with Nimauq, and using proxies, so far he can see that Japan, India, Turkey and Israel are prevented from viewing it too; I'll need to investigate alternative hosting in the morning so everyone world wide can see them...pity as Imageshack have always been relatively good, at least so I thought!
