    The title was deliberately chosen like that so it would draw attention to the report that the Halloween event was going to end.

    I've seen this thread title 3 times over the last few days, each time I've made the same mistaking of thinking
    it was someone moaning about UO being on it's last legs!

    For those who really knows me they would know i don't moan on anything about UO.
    After 14,5 years non stop in UO i seen plenty of UO's last days announcement and i ignore them all. :D

    But make sure you do your last trick or treating for 2012 before we have to wait another year! :)

    Will Cemeteries still give Named Skeleton Bones after today or is that the end of that too?

    *-- trying to get a colored 'Lazy Bone's Bones*

    Named Skeletons are still available today on Sonoma. Hopefully this event will stay available.

    Players who were busy with other events, players who missed this, and haven't done the hunt, and later, new players to the game, will have fun trying to get their Named Skeleton Bone Boxes.

    Now everyone (myself included) who collects bone containers, can keep trying to get their named bones in the various colors without worrying about an END date. *crosses fingers* .. :popcorn:

    Its one of the candies you can get. 3 type suckers wrapped candy and jellybeans.

    I think it is time to turn off skeletons. If you tried for more than a few hours you should have every name you want.

    Named skeletons seem to be gone now.... I know that I was the last one on Pac doing them.... Dang, that was fun and got some GREAT names... Got a 15 day Free Trial for my grandson and we had a lot of laughs making chars names like: "Yo Mama" (which turned out to be our favorite).

    I really HOPE they do that EVERY YEAR. Now that we know what we can do, I'll bet it would become a tradition that players would look forward to every year.... (not to mention the ever-so-humorous containers, that you can walk on, as "featured" deco for some of our more gifted decorators).... Please keep the code and use it every year!

    My character named X-Wife will be looking forward to next years death toll. Seen a few houses sporting her bones as a doormat.

    Oh, and btw - before somebody asks about the abuse of a 15day free just for this event, I offer the following: - I am a 14 year vet with 4 active accounts (and all 4 have been active for all of those 174 months). My 12 year old grandson has watched me play for a couple of years, (while he's been content using his futuristic weapons on xBox), but now says he wants to have his "own" chars (yea, he's played with a couple of mine) which makes me hopeful.... At 12 it's hard to hold an attention span, but he's beginning to appreciate the incredible range of things you can be and do in UO - and btw, at 12 he admits that designing/owning your own home is one of the best things, which made me smile - and it's great when he watches and picks-up on something in the game that I'd completely missed (damn young brains just soak this stuff up)... So, yes, I took advantage of the 15 day free trial - while I watch and see if my grandson keeps interest enough for me to begin yet a 5th active account....

    Just sayin..........

    And, if they bring it back next year, you'll see your X-Wife's bones on one of my doorsteps too....

    I was on earlier this morning making more named skeletons. tonight I found a few other player's named skeletons roamimg aroumd a couple graveyards so I killed them all, got white named bones off those, then could not find any more, nor could I get more pf character's names spawned. *sigh*

    It was fun and I agree .. they should have the named skeletons return every year. 'Sleeping dog' & 'Sleeping Dragon' were ones I missed making. I only got A Dog, Lazy bone, The Collector I can imagine players writing down new bone names they come up ready to use next Halloween, so it will even get funnier. I had to wait 7 days to delete some named characters before starting new ones. A contest for the best named bones would probably happen too. Who ever said Halloween is just for kids? It's meant to be for kids who grew up and got old too!

    :next:

    We need to take this conversation over to UHall so more people will see it... (This thread - the one you are reading now - will probably drop quickly, since clicking on it takes you to posts about what has already ended).

    So I just posted a Poll in UHall on what you liked best about 2012's Halloween stuff. It's here!
    I will be quoting some of the posts here - up to this point, but let's continue the conversation there to keep it current for a while...
    Ok?

    Just sayin...........;)
