And no i wont be lacing them with any ginseng or mandrake either....hehe

    Sorry, was trying to be funny - your client thinks all those objects are there, so you'll see them, but you'll find you can't interact with them - walk across the bridge, etc - because the server doesn't know they're there yet.

    I really, really like these creative ideas.

    One small thing... I might be the minority here, but I'd almost prefer "a stuffed dragon" or "a stuffed mongbat" rather than stuffy or dwagon. I mean it's cute and all, but I guess I'm just old-fashioned and would prefer it "a stuffed..." rather than the baby-talk version. I know, shocking given the fact I'm female. *grins*

    I can't even consider giving them as gifts without thinking I should be giving them a box of Sudafed too.

    Jeremy, you ought to get everyone all happy there on Valentine's Day, then instigate the UO version of the Massacre, by suddenly dropping the guard zone, and reactivating the Candle of Love Quest spawn there at full strength....

    Be a Valentine's day people will long remember....

    Oh, wwwoooww! I love the Yew waterfalls now! Pllleeaassee keep that past Valentine's! It's neat and pretty, I'd rather have that than just a plain waterfall.

    I love these new developers. I hope you guys do lots of things like the new design at the Justice waterfalls. Put pretty things at lots of places!
