    Hail one and all! Citizens of Sosaria! Specifically to all who reside upon the Great Lakes Shardal remenant of the Gem of Immortaility. Tis I, the fair and flirty Melian of Wednesday Nights Majestic Oaks Auction Crew.

    I hath news of the goings on within the walls of the auction house! While the general populace of our fair realm doth seem to be either occupied pursuing great evil or robbing and murdering innocents, else they have fled our lands to other places we continue onward. On the 1st day of May in the year of our Lord 2008, Majestic Oaks auction did rap the table and the sound of the auctioneers gavel did ring through the building. Spring is upon us, and the warmth of the long days of summer approach thus the Majestic Oaks family commenced with its annual meeting.

    Our Monday Night Majestic Madness crew hath undergone some substantial changes in staff. We are happy though to announce that events continue on Monday night, the next being the 19th of May in the Year of Our Lord 2008. Upon this date there shall be held a journey into the world of Shame. Those stalwart souls gathering at the castle shall venture into the dank, dark depths in pursuit of riches and glory! (Or simply to win prizes and have some fun)

    Majestic Oaks Auction crews are comprised of many familiar faces, Ethereal's always cool and composed presences leads Wednesday night, with Logan, Sid and myself Melian. Thursday is lead by the ever boisterous, funny and in your face antics of DJ Scorp with his lovely ladies Princess Melody and Emerald Ice. Our good Lord Pratt now toils in the background but like a smelly mongrel dog.. he'll show up again.

    Each and every Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. CST we round up merchandise and gold to sell to others in the realm seeking, and reward the quick witted, best dressed or other deserving patrons with gold from our treasury and donations from our patrons. Xevei of Bank Sitting Slackers guild is the reigning Trivia champion averaging between 200,000 and 300,000 gold coins per auction. Are you the one to unseat him? Other trivia winners in the fray have been Joe Dirt, Doug Ravene, Draco Hammer, Izabo, Ghost and Dani.

    To add some variety, we've instituted some new website games. By visiting www.uo-moa.net you can find buried in our list of items in the Magical Sorting Chests answers to trivia, puzzles and other games which when the auctioneer asks for them if your clever enough to find or solve them and fast enough on a keyboard can win you 100,000 gp per game.

    Of course there is the added bonus for us that if you visit the sight you may find out what we have up for sale! Feel free to call out to the auctioneer or post to our forum things you'd like to see up on the next auction!

    Lately we've had a lot of our Majestic Oaks family wander off after the bidding stops. I think winter's cabin fever took a toll. It isn't wise for those of us who live life in the "pit" to venture out of the auction house. Many of us have lost our natural ability to find our way around the city streets of Britannia. Iggy the Great, Lady Liesha and Ghost have all braved the long journeys to return our wayward staff.

    Here are some of the many guild tags are seen at the auction house, Wind Riders, Night Wolves of Justice, Beyond Reality, Bank Sitting Slackers, Dead People Everywhere, Unity Of Destruction, Do Your Own Thing, Infamous Bank Sitters, Uncle Ben's Rice Eaters, Dragon Clan, Yew Militia and many more. There are some steadfast Majestic Oaks supporters who are seated in the same spot every auction each auction has a few new faces. Though everyone knows its a combination of the bidding wars and the big spenders that bring the most excitement. Joe Dirt, Izabo, Doug Ravene, Hearts Desire, Physh Styks and Electric Koolaid have been the heavy hitters of late.

    You may run into Ivore Gent, FoFo Cuddlypoops, Kuan Ti, Elgee, Lawerence of Cove, Minty Bubbles, Countess Aibal, Tye Weatheright, The Gods, Raziel, Artimus, Pyro, Jack Sparrow, Gem, Fifi LaForge, Tia, T-Hunter, Davey, Hannah, Night Spirit, Ermac Firebrand, Dolphin, Chaotic Barbie, Elah, Falconess, Ezzy, Scarlet Witch, Slash, Emohnworg, Roland of Eld, Demoness of Mentia, Hadwin Marlowe, Admiral Halsy, Grizzly Adams, Alejandra Nyx, Autumn Reed, Mistic, Chosen One, Poison Ivy, Oliver...

    We miss the faces of Mooki, Haemetite, Tiggermcat, Kryptonite, Of The Ring, Dragon at Peace, Tranquil Dragon, Rowan, Dragon Bub, Lil Priapus, Spudtrina, A Crack Fiend, Heahbern, Xoriat, Morpheus.Jezebel, Isabeau, Teufel, Nazdog...

    Those who have left Sosaria completely like: Mobius, Velturus Viaxus, Astarain Jewel (last we knew)...

    Until next week, have fun, :thumbup1:

    "Hiddy Ho Neighbors"
    A big thank you to all of you who read stratics! I know your out there because all kinds of familiar faces came back to visit us tonight at Majestic Oaks!

    Now, I tried to pull the names of everyone I saw in the audience, but it's not easy to keep open all the Magical Sorting Chests and see your faces too! Tye Weatheright, welcome back! Hiro Protaganist, Fawn, Slash, Hearts Desire, Callel, Scarlet Witch, Discontment, Bad Seed, X Caliber, Ash,Drinyll, Blitz, Stanley, Iggy the Great, Makavelli, Mucklebones, Cold Fire, Elah, Memlock, Death, Doug Ravene, Tiggermcat (69), Craft, Rachel,Gargomel, Uncle Ben, Kortany, Ezzy, Chaotic Barbie, Bailey Bugs, Qwennie Firebrand, Haemetite and Hannah. Now I know I missed some who filtered out in the middle of the auction, and if I missed you don't feel forgotten its all of you who help bring life to Great Lakes and Majestic Oaks Auction and events. Your the reason we all keep coming back week after week, year after year.

    Tonight Trivia was won by Doug Ravene, Chaotic Barbie, Hannah, Gargomel. Hiro Protaganist (x2) Blitz won the final bid on the Mystery Chest!
    Roses, Soulstone fragments, heritage tokens, nets, Pumice, the North wall Rubble tapestry piece... and much more found new homes.

    The BOD books apparently need more time for you all to view. So They'll go back up on display after tomorrow's auction for an extended view time. Hope that helps. There are hundreds of bods sorted by either reward or material.

    Don't forget to come say Hello to DJ Scorp, Emerald Ice and Princess Melody Thursday at 8 p.m. and bring a friend! :thumbup1:

    This is from Latest Updates in Update Center And IS NOT complete or 100% locked in yet. This is what is showing to be in test center right now.

    “A new set of turn-in items and rewards have been added to the existing turn-in system. These items are in addition to the Publish 52 items, and all points from Phase 1 can be used on Phase II items”

    Archery Butte 80,000 pts
    Luck Ring 150,000 pts
    Luck Bracelet 150,000 pts

    Why is Majestic Oaks Auction providing you this? The answer is many fold, trying to unit information, allow you to browse our auction list with ideas of what and why prices may change, work on a wish list.

    Many things often change before the reach shard wide publishes, as we all know. Does “added to the existing turn-in system” mean that the green points checks from publish 52 are still functional in publish 53? Does it mean that both publish 52 and publish 53 items are set at their respective rates and ophidian stuff etc could still be turned in? Are 52 & 53-prize listing both going to be operational?

    There is no mention yet of Books of Truth. At least not as far as I’ve been able to determine scanning boards. Also not mention in the clean up are Anniversary gift bags, or other anniversary gifts.
    Check out www.uo-moa.net for the list of this weeks auction items! Also there are many many BODs in those listing and they are all on public display at the auction house. Furthermore, upcoming in the Month of June we will be giving away a house, it’s larger house NOT maximum lockdowns though (I believe off hand it is 1800 plus, in trammel very very near guards).
    As always keep it G or PG and have fun!!
