    Since I have recently bought a retouching tool (11th year reward) I wanted to offer free retouching of your ethy (yes, plural as well)....

    Simply shout for Hephaistos in general chat and if I have time I will do it right away.

    For those that don´t know about this:
    using this tool on any ethy makes it change to solid form (meaning f.e. a horse will look like a horse and not like a shadow anymore). And it also works the other way round. Works for any ethy afaik, someone please correct me if there are exeptions.

    I will do this for free, but won´t refuse donations, should you feel like it :)

    Oh, this would actually mean you have to hand me your ethy to in order to be able to do it, I will not give the tool out of my hands. But maybe it even works in a trade window, have not tried yet. But doubt it tbh.

    Let´s see it as a new area of trusting other players, like the old brit forge days when you had to hand your weapons and armor to a blacksmith you trusted for repairs :). What a great time this was.....

    Thx..

    I remember him well, yes. Still have kept some of his stuff. The smith of this time I remember most though is Lord Ironchew, or "chewie", as many called him...

    ... a couple of years later:

    Hi ! :)

    Thanks for the flowers, but Uly was still a bit more popular (aswell a couple of weeks older ... IC/ingame) than me.
    But yes, that were times with Lord "Ulysses", "SirTobyOne" and myself, Lord "Ironchew" at Brit-forge (fel. ofc).

    Found this post by searching for my old friend Uly :)

    Cheers

    Hello there!
    Now that is a voice from the past :)

    You have posted one of the reasons you are the number one in my books:

    As much as I remember the tower (and the roses), I am still using the ToR site when I have a memory leak in my head. And I point so many younger players to it. This makes you truly "immortal" :) ...

    You probably know this:
    The old RAA shop (it has moved some months ago) was still owned by a char named Ulysses if I am not mistaken. I bet Lien Ragus or any of the older RAA people would know more about Uly´s whereabouts.

    All the best to you!

    Well, when I decided to leave UO behind me, Uly had moved his shop from that small house near Brit-graveyard (Fel) towards Trammel, to a spot south-west of where Spiritwood is located in Felucca to a spot at the coastline there in Trammel.

    No idea who is running his LUAAF (spelling?) now. (used to be something like: Lord Ulysses and friends).
    I just hoped to get a hint or sign of life from my mate Uly :)

    Cheers

    Arkanos, I´ll try to catch you ingame soon if your offer still stands.

    Been thinking about asking someone to do this for ages cuz I hate transparent mounts so I´ll gladly donate some gold for your services. :)
