    Every shard will be a little different but just wanted to say great content, and making the content dyeable was a nice touch. Happy Easter everyone :).

    I'm kind of embarrassed about LS, I was only on for a few minutes and saw somebody cussing the EMs and saying things about them in GC because they died and lost some items.

    Actually I shouldn't be embarrassed, since the EM event was probably working as planned, since people die at them all the time. This kid must have been new to EM events.

    It's actually kind of funny that some little kid died and lost some stuff and went all emo about it in general chat, because they increased the interest in the vent. Draconian, wherever you are at, the amount of time you spent complaining and cussing about the EMs, and the amount of time you spent asking for gates in general chat, you could have grabbed a mount and headed back and got your stuff on your own.

    Hopefully LS's will run through tonight and I can devote some time to it.

    Well, one thing that I don't think is fair is it seemed like some shards had their final gift spots in an area where spawn could kill people, whereas other shards had a completely spawn-free quest. But yeah, with insurance, there's really no one to blame...you should expect to lose whatever you can't insure, and I'm pretty sure the gifts are insurable.

    Is that the one that starts by looking/talking to a mongbat at a Trinsic bridge? There's only 2, I didn't see anything, unless it's in Fel

    I've had fun at the LS events - I would recommend bookmarking this page:

    Lake Superior Events

    They give a decent warning - 3-4 days ago we got a notice that there were upcoming Easter-related events, and yesterday they revealed key events/locations.

    I really do not understand helding EM Events at major Holidays.

    I mean, Christmas, Easter is, at least for me, the time I have the LEAST time to play any game because they are a family gathering occasion.
    Sure, not all 24 hours of a day during the Holidays go into family get togethers but the way that Event Moderators' Events are set up, at a specific given time, on major Holidays chances are that it won't be a good time to participate to the Event due to family committments and get togethers.

    It would be different, if the Event was an ongoing 24 hours one. Then, even at Christmas or Easter or, any other major Holiday time, one could find a window of an hour or 2 to participate to the Holiday Event at their better convenience.

    The problem is the set time EM Events type of thing.

    I'd much prefer if, for major Holidays, they did without EM Events and only had 24 hours running game wide Events (like the turkey thing for example.....). This way, each player could participate according to their individual schedule.

    Popps, as far as I know, the Easter event can be done on all of the shards for next several days. Better think of something else to complain about, not that it should be a problem for you.

    Right. The LS Shard forum is where I found a couple days advance heads up in searching for a bit more info. to back up the Herald reference to Easter prep. ATL. didn't have a discernible early reference to it (3 am Easter eve) but it was on time and very nicely done:thumbsup:. A couple non-EM players really took the Easter ball and ran with it to get the word out to help the general population get up to speed (Rachel & Dead Bob = awesome).

    I'm smitten with the dyable egg & nicely pruned plant.
    Our pinky-purple mushrooms camp rock !

    On LA it was a blast, though we did have to deal with dragons:thumbsup: I love how this year each area had their own story line. It made it a lot more challenging. Plus it gives the EMs a chance to create their own stories. We even had a jellybean addicted rabbit, who was fired from his postion of Easter bunny. ;) Great job.

    The Easter events should be up for at least two weeks. Plenty of time to complete them. :)

    I did not even have time to get close to UO these Holidays days..... but since I read a reference to it as being an "EM" Event, well, that I know of, "EM" Events take place at a fixed time, they are not 24 hours ongoing activities......

    So this Easter Event is NOT an "EM" Event taking place at a fixed time but can be done by players at their best conveniency over the 24 hours and over several days that it will be active ??

    Much like the Turkey Event ?

    They were revealed just for the Lake Superior shard or all shards ?

    And what do you mean "revealed" ? On the UOHerald ??

    Popps - I think it is referenced as an EM event since each shard's EMs (by my understanding) created a story-line unique to their individual shards. With that said it is still an EM event, just one spanning a few days.

    Either way, not really worth worrying about the semantics of what other people are naming the event. Just log on when you get time and try it. The Dragon's egg is pretty darn neat.

    Popps, if you had done just a weeeee bit research, you would
    know this is a shard wide event run by EM's.

    1. Event is till May 8th

    2. Rewards are the same on all shards.

    3. The obtaining of these rewards varies per shard as the EM's
    will have their own way of collecting them.

    4. Hope this helps those that have been away for awhile.

    Wrong, that link mentions Only the May 8th, So where did you get the rest at?
    I'm not Not trying to be argumentative, but what was he supposed to do, read every post in every EM section and draw a conclusion?

    I went thru the LS events, a PK bunny in Fel was it, so that's it for Easter? What's those dragon eggs all about? They 're just put out when an EM gets around to it? didn't see any mention of that, just reports/posts from Other shards. I might as well be playing Siege with the other 4-5 people there, least they have an excuse.

    ...just kidding popps I hope you find your eggs. Just needed a good spot to post the pic. Happy Easter Season :p

    Woodsman, Thanks for going to the effort of listing the XY coords, I would never have thought it had more to do w/ Brit than Trinsic.
    Then there's the interrogation of the mongbat to get the next clue, I've never been very good at clue gathering, and especially of late (see siggy).
    Guess I'll sit this Easter out - Maybe I'm just not smart enough any more to play UO? Y'all have fun tho


    and popps... here's from another thread - altho nothing officially announced, this was firnished by another player.

    So yeah, I agree w/ you. Someone (read DAOC/WAR Community Manager) could have included that little tidbit in their release.
    It could become permanent like this

    By "event" does everyone just mean this quest that ends in a vending machine?

    On Catskills if you are looking for EM information it can all be found here too: Catskills

    Someone usually posts it to the Cats forum here on Stratics also. NO excuse for not keeping yourself informed.
