    In the spirit of the new traders' house, I am running two contests for the fest. Entries can be made via stratics PM to me, or by dropping a book in the mailbox at the traders house. (Mailbox will be in place when I get it there early next week.) If you enter via the mailbox, please make sure your prominent name is the author of the book. Please also remember to specify which contest your entry(s) are for!

    Prizes:
    Book contest

    1st place - 10m
    2nd place - 5m
    honorable mention - 1m

    Item contest
    1st place - 10m
    2nd place - 5m
    honorable mention - 1m

    Book contest:
    In the spirit of joke items, looking back to the old scams such as "a cigar box", invent a new scam name for a book. The type of book is the dark red hued one you get from the newbie quest in Haven. [EDIT: other book types are allowed; see note below.] Voters will be selecting their favorate 3 entries.

    Item contest:
    Create your own EM event item. Pick one 1-tile graphic found within UO, whether or not it currently is available as an item. If it's something obscure, please give specific details as to exactly what graphic you mean. Decide on a name and hue for the item. Assume the item has no mods, abilities, sounds, sparkles, smells, and is not anything else other than deco. The goal is to pair up the best name, color/hue, and graphic to create a great item. Voters will be selecting their favorate 3 entries.

    Rules:
    Unlimited entries per person are allowed. Please give either an ICQ or stratics name for contact, preferably ICQ. All entries must be in English. If your item's name depends on it being in a different language, please also include an English translation, and send it to me via PM *only*. (I cannot type Japanese or Korean to copy it out of an in game book.) Prizes will be awarded on Atlantic. All entries must be received by December 10th at 9 pm EST. The winners will be picked by a vote in the forums on December 11-12. Any ties will be decided by me. Winners will be posted at the traders house once they have been determined.

    For the scam name contest, a lot of folks seem to be having some confusion about which book is the the red reward book from the quest. For reference, you get it from http://www.uoguide.com/Lyle_the_Mage . However, to make things simpler, I will accept a name for any book type (gargish, purple book, provisioner's red book, quest reward red book). If you're giving a name to a different book type than the quest reward book, please just let me know which type of book (and what hue/color) you're naming. :)

    We've already had some great entries for the scam contest. I've put them on display in the bright blue box just inside the entrance to the auction house. Keep 'em coming, these are great!

    P.S., while you're visiting the auction house, don't forget to sign the guestbook by the stairs on the first floor! :)
