    Ok, so I got married in game YEARS ago and my ring says "Our Love Is Forever" weight 1 stone. I would love to show this off in my museum but cannot lock it down. I went to a friends house last night and she had hers locked down so why can I not lock mine down? Her right did say "Blessed" and mine does not but if I try to insure it, I get the message that it is blessed and cannot be insured. I am waiting on a GM but have the distinct feeling that I will get a little orange dot in the top left hand corner of my screen. Any ideas on what I can do to get this thing to lock down? Or am I just going to have to hide it in a chest, never to be seen again? Even though it says it is blessed, I am concerned about wearing it anywhere.
    Thanks!

    It's newbied. Acts like its blessed, but can't be locked down, and if left on the ground for more than.. 10 seconds I think it is?... it disappears. You should be able to wear it without any more fear than any other blessed item, though. Also, if its in storage, never store it in a container that's just locked down.. only secure stuff.

    I have a wedding ring like that myself
    It belongs to my sister in law that died unexpectly over
    2 years ago. Her son still plays the acct and has her
    toon. Like you I would love to display the ring
    but cant for that same reason.
    I wear Kizmet's AOS apron but her wedding right has
    to be hidden.

    :( I'm sorry to hear that. I will let you know the results of the GM call if they will actually help me. (I doubt it but its worth a try) I've been in the Q for several hours. As soon as I know, I will post.
    Again, I am really sorry about your sister in law.

    I actually have a question... the EM's can lock things down in interesting places... could you maybe ask one of them to lock it down for you? It seems such a shame to have to hide that away...

    I will have to center it in the keep and circle it with something so folks notice there is even a ring there lol I will put a book by it about how that wedding took place. It was the best day in UO (aside from today) that I think I ever had. I am so totally excited!

    Congrats on getting it fixed! Maybe put it on one of those round shipwreck pillows with a good contrasting color, on a pedestal or display case or something similar.

    Thanks so much (to everyone) and the pillow is the perfect idea! I had to run and eat and was thinking about it the entire time lol Wasn't sure how I was going to honor it but AS USUAL you come up with the perfect idea. *hugs Tina*

    If your house is Public.. put a vendor up and have it wear the ring...
    That is one way i have seen people display special items.

    Xenobia that is awesome
    Ive been out enjoying alittle New year joy
    with family and friends

    But I will try and see if I can get a GM on cats
    to be just as kind to me.
    I would love to display mine as well.

    Kizmet married ArchAngel Micheal on Catskills
    years ago and it was an amazeing event at that
    time as well.
    We lost her wedding dress, either her or my nephew had gave
    the acct to a UO friend.
    But I was able to track it down and get it back for my
    nephew after her death but the dress wasnt with the acct.
    The GMs had actually named her wedding dress as well
    as her ring for their wedding.

    You see the rings these days but you never see the
    wedding dresses like she had.

    Oh man! Thank the Gods for that!!! How cool it would be to have a dress named as well. I will keep my fingers crossed for you but I have total faith in the GM's there on Cats that they will fix that ring right up for you. It took my GM all of 30 seconds to fix it for me. Happy New Year!

    Just as a side note... the past few GM experiences I've had have gone very well.

    The most recent was yesterday, getting them to remove a gold-selling spammer from the Chat channel. Was actually relatively quick too.

    I had paged on that as well and was surprised at how quickly they responded and remedied it! YAY GM's!!!! I am still jumping up and down about my ring lol That was so amazing and I even added the GM's name to the book that I wrote about the ring for others to read.
