    nice fiction, I don't have time to check it out but those pictures seem to be taken in the lighthouse in lost lands. I wonder if that tatty book is any where to be found there, or any other clue. Update me if it is please.

    Report from the lighthouse!

    There's "A tatty note" by Big Bob at the Lost Lands lighthouse. The note reads:
    "big bob go ome fanks to da hutt and blak elfs
    *scrawled picture of a black hand*

    There's also a pile of wool marked "A Label Reads: Fin*st Pr**uce of **l****"

    Continuing the investigation!

    Thanks for that Bolo - just to clarify slightly,

    That's left over from an event several years ago. Much as I love UO 'history', some of the old stuff really does need cleaning up, all it is doing now is confusing people.

    thanks for info. I had a very quick look this morning and noticed there's also an orc helm in the cave below the lighthouse (can't remember if that old or not). If it is new it could be hinting at us needing orc masks again to perhaps search for or talk to big bob. His note said he's gone home and I have searched the orc caves near yew again this morning and nothing, mericles caves not changed either). Although the book found with orders to rescue him was at orc fort at Cove so that might be worth a check again, (nothing there last night). There could be more to find or it could be preparing us for the start or tonights/tomorrows events. I have repeated here all the info we have from Big Bob so far in case it helps someone find something). I recommend orc masks might be a good bag accessorie to have at this time.

    Thanks - this explains why I couldn't find anything new in Delucia...

    Now it's time for some speculation:

    Does anyone have any idea about the meaning of "hutt" in orcish? I doubt that Big Bob was freed by Jabba the Hutt...

    I have done a short web search and have no answers so far. Also did a stratics search and one lead to this thread on here http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=92800&highlight=hutt

    @ Birdseye - Crimson drops seem totally random, and I haven't noticed any difference in loot between the different peerless. Jabba is Chief Paroxysmus, most of us call him Jabba because he looks like Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars. An archer can do ok at Jabba, but from my experience, a mage is better, if you do damage to him and he has line of sight, he can teleport you to him and hit you for massive amounts of damage, usually killing you. I use a mage, cast explosion and run, so by the time it hits him, you can be too far from him, or hiding behind the pillar in there.

    what are the EMs reading into things of late :eyes:

    could be "hot and black elves" ?

    I also wondered if it points at that witch that helped with Mericles, but couldn´t make the connection between "hutt" and "witch" (besides witches´ hut/hat).

    I hope not as Nathan owes a witch a big favour for helping us trap Mericles.
