    Its took a good while to get one, it finally happened, feel like I've won the pointless time wasting lottery.

    Oh does it feel good.

    Put it on a pedestal pride of place on my bottom floor.

    Well done! :D

    Whenever I see those turnips I think of Baldric from Blackadder and his wistful dream of some day owning a turnip of his own..
     
  4. Congratulations on a job well done.

    Nice to meet another person that feels the pride of getting one. Most of the people that became a beggar at Halloween could care less about a prize like that or the Sake.

    I also had a couple of ex UO player friends drive 10 miles to see the fabled turnip.

    Not only me that appreciated its pointless yet rewarding value *grins*

    Thanks everyone *Tips hat*

    I remember when I got my turnip. It was a Saturday evening, I was working overtime, alone at the office. To help kill time I downloaded UO onto my workstation. I would camp in heartwood begging while my edger ran lenses. I was so proud I took a screen shot and saved it, not sure where I put it though. Best overtime ever.

    Congrats!

    Apparently I've gotten really lucky.... while out training begging in preparation for Halloween (just hit GM!) I've gotten a turnip yesterday and today within a half hour. No sake yet but there are four other items I've only gotten 1 of - flower garland, a plate of cookies, a pitcher of wine and an empty bottle of wine. Are those "rare" begging drops too or do I just have bad luck with them? I have stacks of dates, shirts, bowls of stew, wedges of cheese, pitchers of liquor, pizzas and lanterns so I'm guessing those are the "semis." :)
     
  10. I have one but been trying to get another for a UO Friend at the Sonoma Forum. Every day I get the road and come back with little to show these days. I hope to score another someday.

    I'm still waiting for the sake too. I could buy one, but I like the idea of having earned all my begging "rares" myself.

    I'm so glad to hear of another fan of that show.

    Blackadder: Baldrick, I've always been meaning to ask: Do you have any ambitions in life apart from the acquisition of turnips?
    Baldrick: Er, no.
    Blackadder: So what would you do if I gave you a thousand pounds?
    Baldrick: I'd get a little turnip of my own.
    Blackadder: So what would you do if I gave you a million pounds?
    Baldrick: Oh, that's different. I'd get a great big turnip in the country.

    Congratulations, and isn't an absurdly good feeling?
    My last rare was the reversed flower garland, which I got getting to GM for Halloween last year.
    Somehow life lost a tiny somehing when those twin goals had been completed.

    The fish steak is the one off for me so far. Gotten two turnip. Imbuing the garlands is always good for a sale on vendors.

    Thank you. I still don't know why, but as grueling as it is to raise the skill, begging is kind of fun. :)

    Welcome to the fraternity of people who do enjoy begging!

    And many, many congratulations on your first turnip. The pleasure is something few will understand. May you have a wonderful time getting to GM.

    Begging is one of my all time favorite skills.
    Along with cooking.

    Love me some begging as well. . . Still no sake, however. I must have angered the begging gods, heh.

    after reading this thread, I wanna raise begging... not for the turnips and sake and whatnot, just because I think I'd fit in well to this group haha.
