from UO - Origin Events EM Laurana & EM Faine Morgan's official website Chicken Fights! Tame up your greatest chicken and pit him or her against your fellow Britannians’ chickens to find out who Rules the Roost on Origin! * The date/time for the Chicken Fight event is: Saturday, June 13, 2009 - 5:00pm Pacific, 6:00pm Mountain, 7:00pm Central, 8:00pm Eastern, 4:00pm Alaska, 2:00am Sunday in France Location: PvP Arena in Felucca - enter via the Vortex at the Buc’s Den entrance, Felucca Note: There will be NO PvP or player killing tolerated at this event! It must be held in Felucca due to combat restrictions in Trammel, but this is NOT a Human PvP event!! Players will pit their pet chickens or greater chickens against each other to fight to the death. Anybody can tame a chicken (no taming skill required). Greater chickens can be tamed at the Jhelom farms. Bonded pets are recommended. To bond a pet chicken, tame one (greater chicken recommended). Then, buy some hay from an NPC farmer. (You can find them in Skara Brae, as well as other cities across Britannia). Feed the hay to your chicken. Then, go to the nearest stable and say the word “stable,” then target your chicken. Keep your chicken in the stable for 7 full days. After that point, go back to any stable and say “claim list.” This will show any pets currently in your stable. Pick your chicken to claim it, then feed it another sheaf of hay. You should receive a message that your pet has bonded with you, and the word “bonded” should appear when you mouse over your pet. If not, put your pet back in the stable and try again tomorrow. Once your pet is bonded, you can begin training it. We recommend using a bonded pet because if the pet dies, it will become a ghost and can be resurrected. If the pet is not bonded, it will suffer a more traumatic death - one from which it cannot return to life. Players can submit regular or greater chickens to fight (greater recommended). Fight bracket will be determined at random by the EM’s at the start of the event. Fights will occur at the EM PvP house in Felucca. EM’s will pull each competitor and their chicken into the ring at fight time. Players cannot heal or vet their pets. No use of peacemaking (neither area nor targeted). Professional veterinary services (heals and resurrections) will be provided after each fight for trainers that are unable to perform such tasks on their pets. A magic wall will be cast. When the wall falls, players command their chickens to attack the opposing chicken. Fighting will continue until one chicken dies. The last chicken standing is the winner for that fight. Matches will continue until all but one chicken is eliminated. The last chicken standing at the end of the fight Rules the Roost. Players may not kill other players or other players’ chickens (aside from the EM-sanctioned chicken fight) before, during, or after this event. Offenders will be immediately removed from the PvP Arena house and denied re-entry. --------------------------------------------- Keep an eye on the UO - Origin Events Upcoming Events Calendar for future events.
