    Thought I was seeing things for a few minutes while on my mad rush over the lands of Sosaria.

    I was at many falls on shards and kept seeing something out of the corner of my eye on screen that didnt jive with my brain. Flashes of spawn that would be the big Thanksgiving turkeys!! They would pop in then just as quickly vanish.... I know I was going loopy hunting so many idoc's and chalked it up to fatigue.... Till I droped in on my new keep spot. Right in front of me apeared for a bit longer then most was a turkey that vanished just as it fully apeared.

    Me thinketh the Dev sliped on turn off button...... Its a code to shut it in house off right? So why am i still even today seening turkeys show up around UO??

    I am glad I am not the only one seeing things, I was ready to take my new specs back to shop and demand a refund :dunce:. I recalled over to fire temple to check the local GD spawn and I could swear on any holy book you care to name I seen a big ugly mean Turkey flash up on screen for a few seconds last week.

    The turkeys have been around all along, they just learned to hide and stealth around. Once in awhile one of them fails a stealth check and gets revealed. You only see them for a brief second before they hide again and stealth away.

    This might explain why the town criers will not shut the hell up about turkeys.

    From what was said from a Dev post over a year ago, the program is able to be switched on and off with a small command. But I think the latest patch added when they were still active might have effected the program.

    Many have thougth they were seeing things.... not brave enough to admit they saw them. Guess the dev got a bit of a mystry on their and our hands...

    Still like the idea of a ninja turkey.....
