    Today begins the next chapter in our Live story arc and we are excited to tell you about it.
    This event is going to begin when your character visits Captain Avery who is taking a little R&R
    at the Cat’s Lair in Britain. He has many stories to tell about his time in prison and you might
    get him to tell you a bit about the lost treasures of Ricardo! This isn’t the “contract” style quest
    that we did in the last event, just chat him up and he will give you hints about what to do.


    If you begin hunting the lost treasures of Ricardo, you will find yourself at the beginning of a
    dangerous journey to the remote parts of Sosaria, searching for a most precious and expensive
    treasure… information. This information can be reported to Queen Dawn by way of Lieutenant
    Dan in Britain, (Trammel) or the sinister forces of Minax by way of Lieutenant Crag in Cove
    (Trammel or Felucca). (On Siege, Lt. Dan is in Serpents Hold). Each has a chest that gives
    random prizes. Each chest has a bunch of random items and a few unique items that you
    win randomly. The special items in Lt. Dan’s chest are new to this event. Crag has stolen the
    special items from the last event and has put them in his chest.


    There are 10 locations (The location that Avery tells you about can’t be turned in for a prize…
    everyone knows that one! There are 10 OTHER locations!). If you visit Ricardo in prison you
    will hear him rambling hints to the locations of his hidden treasures. Each day a new hint will
    unlock! You may get credit for each location once per character. You may only turn in each
    location once, either to Lt. Dan or Lt. Crag. In this quest you must choose if you ally yourself
    with Queen Dawn or the dark sorceress Minax! Just read the book at the location, then speak
    with one of the Lieutenants.


    If you happen to be out of town this week, don’t worry, this event will be available more than
    10 days, but don’t dilly-dally too long, it won’t last forever! The fate of Sosaria is in your hands.
    Happy hunting and y’all have fun!

    Well...sounds interesting. Hope the spots are the same for every server and every char, will have to rely on the more quest/puzzle minded people for locations.

    I... I thought Ricardo got pardoned and released?

    Also.

    Ooh boy, my character has been waiting so long for a royally sanctioned chance to chat up an attractive young guardsman. Awesome.

    (P.S. - Event sounds excellent, I'm looking forward to it)

    Nice event, but its rife with continuity errors...

    Avery says he worked as a private guard for 'Lord Francisco'... uhm.. no.. he was Captain of the Royal Guard under Lord Francesco... ('Military Arrives in Moonglow' by Draconi 4/03/08, as well as the books from the 'Hope for the future' event)

    Then, 'The Bell of Courage' official fiction posted on the UO Herald on 9/03/09 states:

    "Her eyes caught those of her most loyal comrades, among them a master thief, a grizzled soldier, a young mage, and even a tiny mouse."

    With "her" referring to now Queen Dawn, and the "master thief" being Ricardo... Why then is Ricardo back in prison?

    The story also states that both Avery and Ricardo were in Yew Prison, when it was previously stated they were in a secret prison...

    Why are there massive holes and continuity errors in "Official Fiction"? While mispelling a name is relatively minor, geting a character's backstory completely wrong is not.

    UO needs a loremaster, someone who actually cares about the fiction.

    Uhm... Fail?

    Lt. Dan has the old items, since people have recieved Frost Talismans and Cloaks of Augmentation... No new artifacts.

    Lt. Crag is NOT in Trammel (at least not on GL), but he is in Felucca.

    So.. uhm.. might want to look into that.

    .. heres a bug too.

    Geoffrey is walled up, but double clicking him "completes" the quest for that character, as if he was Dan (His chest doesnt work though..)

    Lanterns of spirituality etc still work the same as Ricardo's one, so you don't even need to get that lantern

    Shhh! You weren't supposed to realize they completely ripped off the housing quest by just renaming things...

    So day three book talks about being in two places at once and both trammel and felucca.

    Is there plan to merge trammel and felucca and basically remove one or the other? I'm confused what the developers are thinking now. Maybe their referencing the new classic shard since they do say crystal in Lord British's chest?

    Maybe day 4 will be a bigger clue with unquestionable direction for uo.

    Uhm. No.

    The reference to the crystal is something from UO history. Minax had a crystal that allowed her to project herself into Trammel and cause problems. (it was actually a fragment of the Gem of Immortality)

    It has absolutely nothing to do with merging the facets, just ancient history.
