    Please understand this is not an auction and i reserve the right to keep my collection or refuse a sale to anyone. I will not seperate the collection, so please don't ask!


    A few months back i purchased a home from @Deaol with this collection in it. It took some work to update it and make the runebooks current. It will be a one of a kind addition to any collectors home. There are now 87 total runebooks and they are all neon baby blue dyed. All of the runebooks are old made by runebooks without maker's marks and read "Runbook [Exceptional]". For those of you that don't understand what I am talking about, here is an example...

    "runebook made by ______ [Exceptional]" - how it reads with maker's mark (often seen)
    "runebook [Exceptional]" - how it reads without maker's mark (Rare find today)
    -- Please note - items cannot change names - it was originally crafted this way and will always stay this way --

    Also included in this sale will be 63 "A wooden bench of exceptional quality" benches to keep with the rare theme of the library.

    Library is located on Atlantic

    Here are a few pictures of the Library...

    Feel free to post a bid here or icq me and I will keep this thread updated with bid numbers. I've purchased a few of these books without maker's marks and they tend to run around 10-14m per book, so you do the math on the value of this collection... (not cheap)

    Let's see what happens everyone! - Good luck bidding...

    This is an awesome collection. I've been working on my [Exceptional] runebook collection for 4 yrs and i have over 100 books with and without the mark. A set like this coming up for sale is truly a rare sight. Good luck with the sale of this collection and kudos to whomever owns this collection.

    Is this possible??? Has anyone tried this... Does it copy book title, runes, and all-including old tags? Ponders a new money making scheme... (J/k)

    I will not allow it, sorry. No amount of money will allow me to legally recreate UO history.

    It will only copy the runes inside and place them into a runebook.

    The pen of wisdom will copy all of the runes in a runebook to another runebook for you; it wont duplicate the existing title, "exceptional" "made by DJAd" etc, so it doesn't devalue the existing set. It is however a pain in that he would have to unlock each runebook and hand them to you to copy, then replace them. It may be more practical to work out a price and provide the materials (scrolls, runes, pen of wisdom) to have the library owner (if he is willing) copy the runebooks for you.

    I would like to thank you all for your bids. I am pulling this sale. Instead, I, along with many others, would like to donate this collection to @Longtooths on behalf of everyone who has ever benefited from the rares forums. From many of us, a warm, heartfelt thank you for helping out with the rares forums here on Stratics and making this a much more enjoyable community. May this be a token of appreciation for all your hard work. Keep going strong and know that you are doing a great job. There is still chivalry in this game and there are many people who give a crap about each other here. Let's all pay it foward and show this UO community that we are here to stay and we continue to care!

    Longtooths Please ICQ me so we can figure out how to move this beast of a collection!

    Everyone else, show your appreciation by giving a solid like below!!!

    Longtooths you are well deserving of this collection! And having it in Luna will be very convenient.
    Not like it's last location out in the middle of nowhere! ;):p

    Update- Items have been delivered. Please note it will take him some time to sort it all out - Hopefully in the next few months we might see that beautiful set somewhere on display! Good luck with the set - hopefully it will get much use than it did when I owned it (a lot of dusting - lol)
