    To make this short.. Mesanna came to the auction house on last thursday and she doubted about the legality of this item publicly, so some sad guy paged on it and a helpful GM came to remove the nice color of the throne. Today, Mesanna showed up again but this time she restored the color of the throne because on the last few days she did alot of research about how did the throne (or other black furniture) was created and she found out that it was not created by an exploit. Instead, it was created when the black dye tub came out for the first time because for only 3 days it was possible to dye furniture. (Thanks Mesanna!)
    I know there are black chests on different museums, but so far i dont know of any other jet black throne out there.

    Ok so.. the throne is for sale and its still on Chesapeake. I'll transfer to Lake Superior in 2-3 days so if anyone is interested in the throne or any other event item my ICQ is 16551611 and this is the list of items that I have still on chessy:

    *Rolls eyes* CrazyNinja just get off your lazy butt, wear one all the time and find out for yourself or better yet email Mesanna and find out [email protected] If you really want to know and need email or picture proof and whatever else.

    BUT I think you would rather just be annoying. I do not expect you to even try to find out for yourself.

    I have a black stool, it is also the only one of those I have ever seen. I am glad that she came and put it back the color it was. I knew they had put out something years ago about it being okay to own them. She is a good gal :) BTW my stool and box and chest all came from the same shard if I am not mistaken many many years ago. It could have been something that only happened in a short time frame on one shard somehow. May be the reason there are so few of these items.

  10. I think its great they fixed your chair. I do however have a question about how the black dye tub even came about, wasnt it made through a exploit of some sort? Then made into a vet reward? If this is the case, next thing you know the ethy clothing will be a reward. I could be wrong and thats why I ask. I think that EA has some funky rules on how they run things and what is and is not legal. I just dont see how they can let things be sold for years and one day just decide that its illegal and revert the items back, the players who paid their honest hard earned gold for them are the ones who lose out, not the exploiters.

    Pretty sure the black dye tubs were originally from the first clean up brit as a reward.

    black dye tubs came out i want to say early 1998. I had one when they first came out and yes im pretty sure it was a bug but no one ever got in trouble for wearing black dyed clothes. The tubs at tht time sold for 100k + or so which was alot of gold back then if you can believe :)

    Life's Ruination (Season 1) (2-3) (black bone helm, mods: focus+15 necromancy+15 hp-15 15/-10/15/15/15) - Price? Highly interested!

    I survived the Orc Invasion of 2003 (key, its not renamed) - Was created using HTML. People used to try and sell these at the bank. Tis rare now though as it cannot be recreated.

    Item Bless Deed - Price?

    Yew Summerwine (Seer item, bottle from july 24, 1999) - Price? Looked for this for a long time lol

    First Place, First Britannian Games (seer one of a kind item, necklace regular color) (1) - Did you get these from Lord VOY? They used to be in his castle long ago
    Third Place, First Britannian Games (seer one of a kind item, necklace regular color) (1)

    Lake Superior Fishing Contest Top 10 Fisherman (tall straw hat) (Lake Superior, Season 4) (10) [10 hats but different hat graphics] - Price? I would be interested in this item

    Red Check (value: 1) stucked on a crate - I have paged a GM on this item before and it was deleted, I would page a GM and ask if they are legal now.


    Blood tiles (part of a blood pentagram, 15 pieces) - Price as a package and individually? I would be highly interested as I think I can complete that set

    Thanks Gareth for the info on the Member of the legion of Chaos!

    Shalanria... so you a have a short stool, chest, box.. oh i guess someone needs a throne! ;);)

    There is a red bank check stuck on the ground in front of a castle on LS, yew tram. The deed has been there for years.. I guess the idea of the future owner of that red bank check is to chop the crate and drop the inamovable red check somewhere like.. inside a house, outside a house in front steps.. etc
    The pentagram, i would like to sell it as a package.. if you can complete a set that would be awesome.

    About those and other items, i really dont have a price in mind.. i would like to take offers asap as im going to xfer the stuff to LS very soon, Thanks.

    Trust me, I would page a GM on the red bank check... I had one for 20m not in a crate and he deld it saying it was illegal. Just a heads up. the blood pent I would buy as a set depending on price?? and the other items I have no idea what to offer on so a buy out price would be best perhaps? ATL or LS would be perfect

    about the Red check..
    Do you know where they are from? I know and I know how they where made.. of of course you can call a GM, and if he knows aswell, he will change the check into normal cherckĀ“S!
    Course.. it could have a much higer value then it says ;) If the GM dont know he will delet it, but normaly they offerd all who had this kind of checks to return into normal checks!


    Cheers

    ok so then it came out before then as well. First came out as bug or unintentional item then i guess they released it as a gift. Been so damn long ago.

    No, they have never returned these to normal checks. They are deleted on site as they were created through unintended means. Any check over a mil was deleted long ago. The ones that were not deleted are red and will be deleted by a GM. I would suggest paging a GM to confirm this however as the rules may have changed.

    Sorry no, i dont have prices in mind.
    From that list, the only item that i saw on vendors on last rares fest was the Item Bless Deed at 65m, so i guess 60m would be a good price.
    For the rest of the items, and as stated on the first post, this is not an auction and I'll accept offers over ICQ and/or PM. If the offer is good enough, Ill sell the item.
