    Mesanna Lookalike Day

    Sunday the 30th (All day event)
    Hosted by The Ethereal Void Imperium

    For the entire day players dressed up like Mesanna will randomly win prizes. All you need to do is make an outfit Mesanna would wear and hang out around the Rares Festival Malls. Get detailed with your costume and don’t forget you can engrave items to replicate objects Mesanna has used on other shards. To get you started in the right direction Mesanna does not wear Bright Pink Robes, as far as we know…..

    Prizes will be handed to players at random times throughout the entire day. ONE player will win the grand prize for the best lookalike costume.


    *Warning* Do NOT make a character named Mesanna, dress like her and try to make players believe you are Mesanna. That would be a violation of the Ultima Online Terms of Service.

    Grand Prize:
    -High Seas Booster Code*
    (Donated by the townships of the Ethereal Void Imperium)
