    On Wednesday the thirteenth of August at eight pm eastern the city of Trinsic would like to invite everyone to a traditional Humility Hunt. We will be meeting at the Royal Bank of Trinsic at eight for final preparations before leaving to our destination. Humility Hunts are meant to encourage team work and serve as a great practice for cross healing in combat situations. The following restrictions are placed on the starting equipment
    • Basic clothing, no armor
    • Grandmaster crafted or NPC bought weapon without modifiers
    • No talismans
    • No Jewelry
    As we progress through the hunt anything that is killed may be looted and the items found there used in the remainder of the hunt.

    just curious ...why the emphasis on no armor or equipment... people spend a lot of gold and or effort creating their armor weapons and equipment....I fail to understand why you want people not to use them?? Please dont see this as a criticism, I would just like to understand your thought process. Also can I then assume that someone that doesn't want to participate in this manner isn't welcome in the dungeon? For me the wonderful part of UO is the individuals ability to create and modify their template however they like and...equip that template with items and strategy that they enjoy and that makes it effective ...you event seems to discourage this vital part of UO. Again.... please dont see this as a criticism in any form,...just an attempt to clear up my confusion

    TW, most likely it is meant to serve as a unique challenge. Anyone can run down to a spawn or dungeon any day with full equipment.... But to do it naked! That is truly a special challenge.

    In addition to the challenge of the lack of gear it also encourages the teamwork and cross healing that makes the harder hunts more manageable. I seriously doubt we see anyone else in the dungeon I've picked for this month, but if we do I would hope that they would simply steer clear of us while we did our hunt.

    Since I have no jewelry on he will go wild in about three commands....then that will make it really challenging lol... I think I better stone over GM hide and legendary stealth before I head out :) not for the dragon but to save me from everyone else in attendance :)

    lol. Tamers don't usually come but if you plan to attend on one we would appreciate it if you used a fresh tamed 2 slot or less. Usually we don't bring any in with us and tame in the dungeon, but there is nothing in this one to tame.

    Would have loved to attend, unfortunately I was leading a raid in Lotro tonight. I trust it all went well and a good time was had by all.

    I certainly enjoyed it. I t would have been better if the health bars worked correctly . I think the final score was Lich Lord 9, Us 1.

    Was fun. Looking forward to next time. I think we did alright on the lich lords. It was the regular liches that messed us up the most.
