    1)

    I've never really had any good reason to hunt in Tokuno. I missed the previous two events, and let's face it, when ToT isn't running there's no good reason to take an extended stay there. Sure, I run in when I need something (Fire Bugs for eg), but that's about it - once I'm done I recall out and that's that.

    So I may be a bit slow in pointing this out, but the main thing that hit me was this: No reagents spawn on the ground there.

    Instead we get female underwear.

    Leather at that. Kinky.

    Seriously, go look. It spawns all over the place, you can pick it up, take it home, whatever. It's like I turned up for a party a day late, and all I'm seeing is the aftermath.

    2)

    Here we have mention:

    Soooo... I guess this is just Chrissay playing games (apparently all these artis did come from a shipwreck, so it stands to reason someone'd ask this), but... anyone seen any such thing?

    3)

    The new Mempo seems to be a much scarcer drop then the other minor artifacts. Though given that it currently has the highest luck score of any item ever, I suppose that's to be expected.

    4)

    Good to see something happen in UO. Musta seen more usernames on my screen today then I've seen all year. Fun thus far. :)

    Reagents spawn on the ground in plenty of places in Tokuno. And the shorts aren't from spawning.. some of the Tokuno monsters don't carry them in their packs properly and when the creatures decay the shorts dont.

    I think if you take the Isamu-Jima moongate and run south to the coastline, somewhere along that coastline below the Hataka plains are what appear to be the remains of a shipwreck.

    my guess is the female armor scattered about is the result of the two item numbering systems, and the wrong chart being consulted, like the Valentines bacon's first appearance.

    My random thoughts

    1) WOW Loot on things like rune beetles and such suck much more than I thought.

    2) Where the HELL do all of these people go when there is no ToT going on?

    The place you're describing is called "Storm Point", and it's been a landmark ever since Tokuno was created. Or has it changed recently?

    Heh. Well, I guess the anti-reagent code must only apply to the champ zones, probably to keep lag down or something...

    Rune Beetles actually have decent gold on them when you consider how quick they go down.

    Most of the people who are "in hiding" while ToT isn't on probably aren't even logged on.

    Edit:

    Here's a new thought.

    Draconi posts that the Shadowlords want us distracted.

    Casca promptly sends us to Tokuno.

    Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?

    I think so, Brain, but if they called them "sad meals" no one would buy them. ...
