    My oldest account has finally caught up on it's true age.
    I got the 14 yr. vet reward gump, but only on ONE shard, Chesapeake does the 14 yr. vet gump show, albeit the same acct. same age, identically showing same age, *at the same time* got no gump, for page 3, house addons, on Siege for the 14 yr. vet reward.

    The acct. is the same age and SHOWS the same age on both shards.

    I do realise that the 14 yr. Shard shields vet reward is for cross shard
    traveling, and I do know that Siegers can not *transfer*

    but I thought,
    we were going to at least get the 14 yr. vet reward on Siege Perilous,
    as DECO *at least* !

    It is not showing up at all on my Siege character, with the same equality
    as it is showing up on my Chesapeake character, same acct. same AGE.
    Both AGED together about 5 days ago.

    But I see a NOTHING for us 14 yr. vets to claim on Siege as our 14 yr. vet reward at all.
    ARE we not even given the 14 yr. vet reward as DECO only,
    and or NO 14 yr. vet rewards at all on Siege ?

    First two screenshots are, me, on Chesapeake.

    Same acct., me on Siege:

    These images, above, are from my SAME ACCOUNT/ SAME AGE on the two shards which I play upon. I just want to know, do Siege 14 yr. vets get nothing, at all to claim as UO 14 yr. old customers, then ? Or is this some error ?

    i thought they took it off the menu because seige cannot use it so they now dont let you accidently pick it as a reward.

    :)

    Well we KNOW we can not use it, per say like other shards,
    since there are no transfers to from Siege.

    BUT I thought, we were supposed to get it [as DECO only !] at least.

    So what do we get then as 14 yr. old faithful UO customers
    for [our] 14 yr. vet reward pick, on Siege then ?
    NOTHING ?

    :(

    Well one can only assume it's common knowledge that everyone should know there are no transfers to or from Siege. But there will always be some people out there who will just not get the message.

    But there should be a Siege option for it but it should have a note next to it saying "Decoration Only."

    I would bet that as soon as they added it to the list, somone would be on Uhall complaining that they were on Siege, got the shield, and are now upset that they have a "useless" vet reward.

    I am pretty sure I saw a Siege Shard Token (not shield) in a spoiler thread on Uhall... Pretty sure.

    Yeah, lol.

    That's why if it is added there should be a note on the menu in bold letters saying "Decoration Only." That way everyone can easily laugh at them :D

    You could put half a dozen neon warning signs and there would still be some idiot driving the wrong way down the NJ turnpike...complaining about all the OTHER people going the wrong direction.

    (+400 quatloos for a NJ Turnpike analogy)

    haha

    The news had some elderly lady doing 100+ miles the WRONG way on a freeway, can not recall now if it was here in the Memphis area or elsewhere,
    but yeh that was just within the past week. They pulled her over for it, once they found her to ticket her. :) She was like 80 something ! :)

    But back on topic, yeh, we were shown we COULD CLAIM IT as DECO ONLY,
    and yes I would claim it on Siege...just like I would claim one on Chesapeake, as Deco only..cuz I have no plans to go elsewhere with either of them !

    Just sayin' if ya a faithful paying UO customer, 14 yrs. long ya kinda hope ya are treated equally, if only just DECO vet rewarded, on every shard, which we ARE a faithful paying customer for 14 yrs. !

    I hope they let us know or at least create us a DECO only one or put it back on menu CLEARLY LABELED for the short sighted or clueless ! :)

    I thought so too !

    And dontcha be makin fun of my Chessie Dnepropetrovsk either.

    Poor chap, my son made him back in the UO day, 97 or so,
    to be a murdering thief and then...
    they made a trammel ! That is why he is so sad and wretched to this day.

    I owned him since 99/2000 when my son quit, and he is sadly, a retired chr. bad boy for the most part. He was red hued once upon a time. His karma still sucketh ! :)
    and ifn they'd ever permitted transfers, haha, he would fit in & join SIEGE ! LOL

    I remember the original thread where the spoiler code was shown. I mentioned then that I would have liked to seen maybe an event on Siege, outta the kindness of Mesanna heart, offering these as just decorative.

    I'm sure that could have been done. And would be a nice gesture to Siege. I would have loved one for my home to show how proud I was of Siege.

    Same here. I may be taking over the guardianship of the Aeric Horn Memorial building on Siege.

    And I would surely wish to have a SIEGE shield, in that building once, I do so.

    I am the *guild leader* of his former Guild, Guardians of MYTH still, and
    just not fitting that a Siege Shield, should not be donned on that building.
    If he were still alive today to log in to Siege UO, he would WANT and claim one surely, if they just let us have em, even as DECO ONLY !

    That and I will need someone to make me 2 statues, of the gryphon or the other gothic rustic whatever statues to be [the GUARDIANS of MYTH] in that memorial home. I didn't buy those boosters, but I am sure someone on Siege can make em for me. I am sure Miranda has the granite, gold or bronze, gold might not show up as well as bronze statues> I have granite all hues on deeds in bank, to cover makin 2 of those. :)
