    Its a somewhat rare reward from doing the new traders quest in trammel. You can get those, only if you do the quest(s) without using a moongate.

    What I wonder about, is the number of different signs that are available. Maybe we could start a list here? Since it probably hasnt done yet. I also wonder about their values, but I would expect, it takes some more time until someone can give a matching price/value for those?

    So far I have gotten signs for:
    - Sorcerer's Guild
    - Barter's Guild

    I didn't even know, that something like a Barter's Guild did exist until I got that sign ....

    Just take a look at the sign choices for your house, its pretty much the same selection. (Its the same art as the NPC buildings, they aren't new)

    Silverbird, where in the most recent publish notes ( http://www.uo.com/article/Publish-86-Notes ) does it say you can only get the NPC guild signs by doing the trader quests without using the moongates?

    I can see where it says that killing the ambushers increases the amount of gold to the origin city's treasury.

    I can see where it says greater distances increase the amount of gold to treasuries and amount of resources rewarded.

    And I also see where it says that using a public moongate forfeits distance rewards and your "rare chance at rewards." However, the only items in the publish notes listed as rewards that have the words "a rare chance at" in front of them are the rewards from Slim the Fence, i.e., the Expired Voucher, Forged Artwork, Little Black Book, and the Shadow Veil.

    So are the NPC guild signs and story books from doing the regular merchant quests also "rare"? If yes, it would be most helpful if the publish notes actually said that because I don't see the word "rare" in that section of the publish notes at all. (Not picking on you, either, Silverbird! You just happened to be the person who started the thread. LOL)

    Edited to add: Has anyone been reward with the NPC guild signs and story books when doing regular merchant quests and using the moongates/not killing ambushers?

    Actually I am only assuming, that the guild signs and books are counting as rare rewards. But on my home shard are someppl mass doing the trade quests with the use of moongates and havent got any of them.

    The books and signs are the rares for the Trade Orders in Trammel, voucher, artwork, little black book & veil are rares in Felucca. Using a Moongate nullifies your ability to acquire these.

    If you use Moongate, you're left with the basic rewards (which the SoTs are considered).

    Thanks, all, for the replies to confirm this! It's too bad the publish notes weren't clearer about it, though.

    There is a Rogue's Guild; it looks like this:

    All the signs are the same size and shape, just different colors and different text.

    My 2 guildmates both have received the rare books (2) and a guild sign (1). Both used the moongate, but did kill any ambush mobs.

    Thanks to the utterly bizarre RNG, my very first trade run on Europa - using stealth so I never fought anything, and on a relatively short trip only on land (Britain to Vesper) resulted in a Fisherman's Guild sign ....

    Since then it's fairly consistently been such prized items as 64 sea serpent scales or 100 normal wood boards, but that first one makes up for those :)

    Don't forget you can engrave the signs with a wood container engraving tool.

    I just checked mine:

    On list: Guild of Armaments | on my sign: Armaments Guild
    On list: Armourer’s Guild | on my sign: Armourers’ Guild
    On list: Association of Warriors, Guild of Cavalry and Horse | on my sign: Cavalry Guild

    Maybe the names on the list here on Stratics are taken from InsideUO and the ones we get are from a 'new list'?!?

    I was just pointing out the only list I could find with both graphics and name. You can't see the name in the house sign menu. :rolleyes2:
