from EM Faine Morgan's official website UO - Origin Events December Schedule of Events Posted By EM Faine Morgan on November 29, 2009 Winter Wonderland House Deco Contest Beginning on December 1st, submissions will be accepted for Origin’s EM Winter Wonderland House Decoration Contest. Each house must in some way reflect the Winter Season (this can be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc. or simply the winter season). To enter, simply drop a rune in the green mailbox at the Award Hall on Origin. Please name the rune with your house’s name and whether the house is public or private. For example, “Faine’s Gingerbread Cottage – Public”. If your house is private, please also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange a time for me to view your house. Entries will be accepted through 10 p.m. Eastern Time on December 14th. Once the entry period ends, I will post the submissions on our internal Event Moderator site and ask the other Ultima Online EM’s to vote for their favorite. On December 20th, there will be an open tour of all the houses for everyone and the winner will be announced at that time. There is a portal to the Award House outside the Britain Counselor’s Hall. By entering this contest, you agree to set your house public on the evening of the tour. ____________________________________________ High Seas Gauntlet and Maze After filling our bellies with all the yummy food from Thanksgiving, it’s time to exercise off those extra holiday pounds before we once again indulge in all the goodies of Christmas! And what better way to get a good aerobic workout than finding your way through a floating maze? Meet EM Faine Morgan on Wednesday, December 2nd at 9 p.m. Eastern/6 p.m. Pacific for some fun (and exercise) on the high seas. Complete details of this event will provided once everyone has gathered. Please be on time. This is one adventure you won’t want to miss! ____________________________________________ Donal’s Magical Mutant Christmas Tree Experiment On December 12th meet Taryn Sullivan at the Britain Counselor’s Hall to hear the latest on Donal the Monk’s experiments with the local flora and fauna. Donal has been deep in study with the Gargoyles and has found some interesting references to formulas that extend the life of Christmas trees as well as multiply the harvest time and yield for crops. Taryn will be at the Britain Counselor’s Hall at 10 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Pacific to give the citizens a status update on the fruits of his labors. Taryn will lead the players as they meet with Donal to see first hand the wondrous results of the new formula. Surely nothing catastrophic could happen right? ____________________________________________ Christmas Candlelight Tour of Houses On Sunday, December 20th, EM Faine Morgan will lead the players on a tour of the houses submitted in the Winter Wonderland House Deco Contest. The tour will leave from the Britain Counselor’s Guild at 9 p.m. Eastern/6 p.m. Pacific and will include Christmas caroling as well as snacks along the way. To help us get in the mood of the season, players should bring along a candle to carry. At the end of the tour, the winning house will be announced as voted by the Event Moderators of Ultima Online.
