    20k per Water Barrel

    Water-Barrel Haven Event
    Fill a barrel with water in Haven Square for 20k
    Saturday Noon, August 15th, '09


    The scientific debate over how many barrels of water would it take to fill Haven Square will be decided this month. "Inquiring minds need to know stuff," said DeadBob, Interim Director of the Haven Water Dept. "Besides, we need more water. This summer has been dry and drought has destroyed our beautiful green square. It's just dirt, now."

    EVENT: Bring barrels to Haven Square. Fill each with 20 pitchers of water. Get 20k for each full barrel.
    TIME: Noon Saturday, August 15, until Haven Square is full of barrels or the Water Dept. runs out of funds.

    HOW TO GET & FILL BARRELS:
    Barrels spawn throughout Sosaria in woods, fields and deserts, even in dungeons. Barrels hold up to 20 pitchers of water and can be emptied with a water pitcher. Water pitchers can be purchased from tavern owners & barkeeps. Just pick up an empty barrel, drop it in Haven Square, and fill it with 20 pitchers of water. Pitchers can be filled with water from the water troughs in Haven.

    20k will be paid by Water Dept. Staff Members for each full barrel of water.

    Who is going to end up removing all these barrels?

    Is EA, UO, The GMs, or whoever is incharge, going to allow this?

    I hope no new plays log in for the first time during this. I'd give them a few 20k checks for the eyesore.

    If EA, UO or a GM says don't do this, it won't happen.

    It's perfectly do-able by standard game methods and doesn't violate any exploitation rules. Thus, it's entirely legal. If EA says "don't do this" then that's ridiculous; they shouldn't allow people to fill more than one barrel in a certain time period in that case.

    Once in Old Haven, a guild mate of mine was paged by a GM to pick up oil clothes they left littered everywhere (but I do not know how widespread they were though).

    Wallenstein, thanks for putting an article about the Event on UOLedger.com. That droll graphic is ... art!

    Mr. Gnome :) Perhaps we could get EM Nestor to throw a "Dry-Out Haven Event" & reward players for removing the water barrels. I'd remove one for a decent piece of pixel crack.

    I would need to be on real crack to waste my time doing either :p

    I would like to see a screen shot though.

    Interesting how drugs seem to surface in the last days, especially the evil stimulants...

    Or maybe its just coincidences... right ? :danceb:
