    I woke up and logged on this morning only to notice something was off about my museum.
    One of the holiday gift boxes I have on display was gone. Last night I was moving things around but I don't recall unlocking or attempting to move it. But it's gone.

    And now there is one less Candle Blessed by Love quest set in Sosaria.

    I mourn it's loss. :sad2::oops::sad3::frown2:

    At least it wasn't the candles! I've done that before myself and I kick myself each time.

    @Kolka I sure did. I just removed 85 square goza mats to do it too! I wonder how long those have been in there.

    @Assia Penryn I am glad I didn't lose any Candles as well, but the quest set holds more value to me than the majority of single candles.

    @ivester77 I didn't think about reporting a possible bug, I'll go do that now. Thank you

    @UO Houses It's sad to hear about others experiencing this as well.

    I am under the impression there are not many sets left out there. If anyone has a complete or partial set of these items, would you be so kind as to notify me? I would like to begin to get a rough idea on the numbers out there. Know anyone who has a set, please just let me know they have one, I don't need names.

    ARRRRRRRRRRGH!!!!

    It is a bug. Sometimes the 'I wish to secure this' method doesn't actually work like it is suppose to. Sometimes it takes a few tries for an item to actually lock down.

    I experienced this during the auction. Took me nearly 5 tries to lock down one single item.

    Sorry this happened to you, Adeka.

    Sad.

    Here is what i do after I secure something of extreme value.

    1. Immediately try to pick it up.
    2. Use House tool to raise or lower it.
    3. single click it see if i get retrieve option.

    I have never lost anything using this method, It provides several checks to the game to make sure the lock down is functioning on all levels.

    Sorry @Adeka :frown2:

    I really want to use some seriously inappropriate language right now!! While looking for the box thinking it possibly fell underneath the counter piece it was resting on, I moved the counter piece and then secured it. THAT PIECE IS GONE NOW TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    WTF!!WTF!!WTF!!

    Can someone point me in the direction of the nearest wall to bang my head into?! And also the proper place to report this.
    Will I be able to get these items back, or are they gone forever?

    Thank you all for the kind words. I do appreciate them. :)

    There are 7 items in the set. They are:
    Tear of Sacrifice
    Sudiva's Covetous-Laced Tear
    Quill of Justice
    Executioner's Rusty Pen
    Heart of Compassion
    A Heart Blackened by Despise
    The Prisioner's Journal

    Did I mention ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!!! already??!!!

    Silly question, but you sure you didnt accidently use the Retrieve function on it, and its hiding in your backpack? (Most of my backpacks are so messy I may or may not notice a multi-colored gift box half buried in my pack)

    I looked through my chests. I found a quill of justice. You can have it if you'd like to start your collection over.

    @Jillene I need the Prisoner's Journal to complete the third, now second set I have. I would really love to get it from you!

    @Assia Penryn Yes please! :D

    @Kolka HAHA! Me too. I have 4 or 5 Blackened hearts! The Journal is the hard one to come by, in my experience. Nice little piece to have!

    @Fusilli Zaitsev Looks as if the little thread might help us all complete out sets!

    Thank you all for chiming in with this information, I greatly appreciate it! If anyone reading this wants to part with any of the pieces needed to assemble the quest item set, please PM or Q me! :grouphug:

    I lost my slime dyed collection in the counter piece that 'dispersed' earlier, which also makes me very sadface. At least with that, I know I can rebuild it. I also reported the incident and expect it to be solved sometime in the next 300 years... :lol: :hula:

    Sorry my old Friend.

    I have had items in fact an entire wing of my castle delete including vendors and their items do to a house being placed or idoc'd next door.

    Seriously frustrating.

    In the end we are all smart enough to know how to replace our losses so while it sucks for sure. I am confident you will get things all squared back away in the end.

    @Lord Nabin Thank you, you're right. But it's the initial shock of the loss that certainly got me all upset.

    @Assia Penryn Thank you Lady! One down and 6 more to go! ;)

    @Peil OMG! That is such a sweet picture of me, thank you so much! I loved waking up to it! Maybe I could use it in my signature, if you don't mind? What a kind gesture. It certainly made me smile first thing, and I haven't even had my coffee yet!

    I'm very glad to see your smile even if you had an accident.
    Of course, please feel free to use this picture. It's my pleasure, too.
    Have a good & delicious coffee, mate. And I'll go to bed, night ! (^_-☆ *wink*

    One thing when you have a loss like this is that the rares community is a great group of players. Although it hurts to loss some precious items in the game, most can be replaced over time. But out of the bad situations that occur some really nice things can happen, such as making new friends in the game that are willing to help you replace what was lost. That to me is the best part of the game is the players, I just wish we had more of a player base.
    Just a quick comment about losing things, I once lost around 30,000 gp an almost quit the game. You go huh? 30k is nothing but it took me over a month to acquire that gold back then which was in late 1997 early 1998. I was saving to buy a house deed and was making bows etc and selling to the npc's for gold and back then there was no trammel. I was getting close to buying the deed I wanted and then poof all the gold was gone one day. I had to start all over again and the housing spots were going fast, I had to settle for a small house deed and was lucky to find a spot. Ahh how have things changed now with so many shards and so much space for houses. But for some reason I still miss those first couple of years of playing UO, enough rambling LOL.
    I hope you recover all that is missing from your collection, I'll take a look and see if I have anything that you need.

    @Adeka

    Did you look under the table Adeka? I have had rares fall under tables and stuff only to find them when I remove it or axe it.

    I would like to donate 50m to help you replace your lost items. hit me up on icq.
