    Greetings Everyone,

    Starting this afternoon the Japanese shards will get Publish 88 during their normal maintenance cycle. Please remember that this causes problems with character transfers until we have all the shards on the same server version.

    On behalf of myself and the UO Team we would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. The office will be closed (except for GM coverage) on November 27th and 28th.

    Huntmaster’s Challenge
    The Huntmaster at the Skara Brae Ranger’s Guild now offers a monthly challenge for hunting various species throughout Britannia.

    • Visit the Huntmaster NPC at the Ranger’s Guild outside Skara Brae to obtain a hunting permit via the Huntmaster’s context menu.

    • Permits cost 5,000gp, the funds must be available in the player’s bank box.

    • Trophies throughout the Ranger’s Guild indicate which species can be hunted, and include:
      • Grizzly Bear

      • Gray Wolf

      • Cougar

      • Turkey

      • Bull

      • Boar

      • Walrus

      • Alligator

      • Eagle
    • Double click on the hunting permit and target the corpse of a valid species to record the kill.

    • The Permit will display the Hunter’s Name, Date of the Kill, Location of the Kill, Species of the Kill, and a measurement for the Kill.

    • Taxidermy Kits can be used on the hunting permit to create a trophy for display.

    • Return to the Huntmaster to submit a kill for consideration in the monthly competition.

    • If a submission has the greatest measurement for a species, the kill will be displayed on the trophy inside the Ranger’s Guild.

    • If a submission ties the greatest measurement for a species the display on the trophy will not update, however the submitting player will be eligible for reward when the contest concludes each month.

    • If a submitted kill has the greatest measurement at the end of the month, the submitting player(s) will get points for each submission to redeem rewards from the Huntmaster.

    • Kills can only be submitted from the current month and year.

    • The Huntmaster’s month will be updated on server maintenance, each new month the contest will reset.

    So I'm not the only one seeing funky html all over the page? I just asked a few other people and they said it looks fine to them....I am NOT going crazy! lol

    Glad to see they are making fire places heat sources for cooking and I cannot WAIT to be able to stack my snow/grass tiles...as long as the reset system for the HuntMaster's challenge gets fixed..it's still resetting after 1 day here on Origin and since we all know the max weight for each species it's gonna be a matter of who logs in and turns in there permits first kinda thing :)

    I'm going to wait on the huntmaster thing for awhile.. not in a rush on that. I'll be spending most my time combining snow and grass as well as those pesky 1 charge dyes. OOo I am so excited about having the extra 400 lockdowns that it should give me!

    Can't wait.

    P.S. here on stratics I'm still getting that bizzare thing everytime I try to post about an error of some sort. But I've found if I just close it and refresh I did actually post and everything is fine... just weird.

    Yeah we are working on that issue, I will be making a post about that but if you just X out of the pop-up and refresh the page everything is fine and you won't end up double-posting.

    And I know what you mean...I don't have as many snow/grass tiles as you but I do have quite a few, will be nice to free up some space!

    the crystal portal fix where it takes you to the other bank instead of the one it use to.... that seems wonky.
    was with a guild mate and we both typed 'Fel Trinsic Mint' and i went to the new bank and he went to the old bank.

    havnt been able to re-produce this though.

    Has anyone been able to get snow and grass tiles to stack on any of the Asian shards or received a coffee plant from a Horn of Plenty?

    BUT!

    you cant hire these ones, the old ones we could hire like the bards and such, cant hire these ones.

    AND!

    all these ones have the same colored shield.

    Izumo is a "test" shard like Origin, though. No coffee plants anywhere else yet?

    On grass and snow tiles. Are they not different types? They look that way to me, maybe 3 types. I wondered how these would all stack. Coral is adorable and too speedy, why is it speedy? (pig on a spit is too)

    The hound is just fun, fun fun fun! Ty!

    VvV leaderboard is bugged, shows number of Assists under the column of deaths and visa versa.
    Not sure if this is affecting leaderboard results. This seems to only be the case on some of my characters. Perhaps it's a board update issue.

    On your guild roster. Think they said it might take a few hours after pub went live for it to update and show.

    Pacific doesn't have the publish yet, despite it being an hour after our shard should have had it's daily maintenance. There have been tons of complaints on Pacific about plants not growing and spawns not resetting which they normally do at server maintenance. I know for a fact there was no maintenance yesterday as I played through when the server normally would go down. Can you guys look into this?

    It's on the "My guild" part of the guild gump if your character is actually in VvV.

    Note: Was able to look at page 3 of the leaderboard on Origin this morning. Thanks for fixing.

    Grrrrrrr! I tried with 19 horns of plenty on Pacific. Darns! Now all the charges are used for nothing, ok 5 points for some food. So Kyronix now what?

    Not complaining, well maybe a little, but there was a lot of talk about us getting a toilet. We have sinks, wash basins, bathtubs, towels.... no toilet. Or was that just a Mesanna joke? She seemed serious when she said it. Would also like a 2 tile mirror to fit above an elvin wash basin so I can call the bathroom finished :)

    Rumor has it the toilets would spawn poop elementals too, a more powerful version of the mud pies!

    @Kyronix

    Could the coffee plants please hold up to 10 of the pods like the Rose of Trinsic? Unless one has a veritable forest of the plants, it will require picking them every day to build up a supply worthy of doing anything with.

    Coffee plants aren't showing up on the vendor search system at all

    I would be happy if my coffee plant grew at all. No plants of any kind have grown on Pacific in over a week. (except one day when server maintenance was pushed manually).
