    We expect to have housing decay turned on by the beginning of next year. We are going to start giving everyone a warning, this being the first of several you will see. Please take the necessary steps to secure your house before its turned back on.

    Happy Holidays!

    UO Team

    I wonder if this is going to happen when they say it will. Good way to be sure everyone keeps their accounts active while they "Fix the issue"

    I think their new account system will be ever buggy. Have you called UO to have them look at it?

    Greetings Kelmo,

    As by my post of this years House Census required my exploration of every house upon Siege Perilous, I take notice of states of decay.

    One such house was a small house owned by Otis. It proceeded to IDOC last Thursday morning at 11AM CST. No other houses were in decay.

    *stares*

    Was that the lil one in Bartertown ?

    I saw it was fairly worn last time I went by it,
    so I went by yesterday morning just to see if it had fallen yet.
    It did yesterday morning.

    I took the pwr scrolls over to NEW guild.
    I am saving the mailbox for a Christmas gift,
    for a new Siege homeowner here.

    Bos'd the empty bottles, into me bank.

    There were quite a few kegs of potions,
    there, left em on the ground, cept for the ones,
    that help plants, which I will give to Sara.
    Seen one fel tmap, which Guardian was wantin in *chat*
    so I gave that 1 to him.

    I think the other stealther, got a hold of the other kegs, I believe. :)

    And, if anyone wants a lot, of fertile dirt, lemme know. rolleyes:

    What the heck is a balm of whatsits ? Some factioners' potion ?
    I left that there too.:)

    The Balms are items you can get when using the stealing skill on a monster.

    hehe ya do not have to find me in game. I took a chest over to GIL loot house for ya with seeds, some plants, the idoc potions and the fertile dirt too I believe. Double check it make sure I did put the fertile dirt in there.

    Ya know how long it took to BOS into my bank to slap on a deed 14,500 fertile dirt in a heap off the ground ? rolleyes:

    Anyhow, check the GIL loot house I set it to OWNER only. Ya can't miss the rarewood chest in Christmassy bloodwood rare made by some crafter named:
    um Miranda !


    Also check by the tele tile to Blind Otto's keep. I put a backpack there, with some KSS mementos and things that I had and that Vortex gave me, that should go in Blind Otto's keep, since he is the only one left still holding the KSS guild stone ! I can't lock stuff down in his keep, figured maybe yu can ?

    I don't want KSS or it's history, or their/our/my own too once, place here on Siege, to become ever, lost from this shard. Please try to get it to his keep locked down and safe, he will log in again some fine day, I hope ! He was once hoping to make a KSS museum of sorts, and hopefully one day he can do that.

    Also in that backpack are two non related books, that *intertwined* with KSS, both books Kelmo gave me, one about [Iantown], and of course the other is the [GUILD BIBLE for VMP] ... them vile vampires ! :)
    Siege surely should not ever forget about them all, either !

    Thank you for the fertile dirt and potions and plants. The white bag and book have been moved to Ottos keep, I had to look for a free tile on the floor to lock it down. Its at the foot of his stairs so he will stumble over it when he either goes down or up them.
