    Christmas Lights and a Rocking Horse were mentioned at the UStream meeting this week. It sounded like there were others as well - but no details on them.

    I was wondering the same thing, I know we have magic but come on.... whats next the big blow up santas and snow globes you put in your yard. I realize they are probley running out of ideas but using modern day stuff seems kind of dumb in a game based on the middle ages.

    Well, in Exodus' lair there are power generators, though it'd be interesting if Castle British built something like that in Britain with a bunch of chained up minions to supply electricity... lol.

    On the plus side, they aren't regifting, as they have done in other previous years.

    Christmas lights have been around since before electricity, they used candles.

    Yeah, but that was on trees. I doubt we will be seeing those. I'm going to say they mean the 'string up on your walls' kind. Nice try though.

    UO has long separated itself from the European middle ages.

    Now we have ninjas and samurais fighting robots.

    They put the candles on the trees? Sounds like a fire hazard to me.

    It was. Many a house burnt to the ground in the early days due to the candles. Many a child got hurt too from them.

    Well, it's a well know fact that hamsters provide the electricity for the servers themselves...

    Besides, magic exists in Sosaria. So the lights are probably powered by magically enchanted glow globes/gems etc. I mean, it's not going to be more difficult than enchanting weapons that shoots fireballs and lightning bolts, is it?

    The first thing that comes to mind for a lot of us are modern day electrically powered christmas lights, but that's only because that's what we are used to. It's not neccessary the only possibility.

    Then, there are power crystals, if each can power a golem, harnessing them for lights would be a piece of cake.

    Or if we disregard the magical aspects, there are always minature lanterns, or even fireflies.

    Just sayin'
