    It’s almost Christmas and in Ultima Online, that often means it’s time to decorate our houses in the holiday themes. With Christmas gifts being out two weeks and the x-shard trading still in progress, now is a great time to see what people have done with the new tiles and new items.

    Decorators, you can submit anything you want, whether it be a room, an object, or an entire house – or multiple houses tied together (there have been a few cool ones entered like this). The sky is the limit but it should be Christmas/Holiday Themed.

    A few rules:
    1. The house(s) must be in UO. You cannot use HomeBuilder or any other applications as they contain tiles/items you cannot find in game. You actually need to decorate a home in UO to make this fair to everyone. These homes should be available for staff to visit if requested…meaning this has to be on a real UO Shard, not a freeshard/server.
    2. Screenshots HAVE to be of homes in UO. Real life Homes do not apply for this contest. (yes I have received pics like this).
    3. You can submit as much as you want, but you can only win once.
    4. Any entries received by a different e-mail than the one listed below will be ignored.
    5. Late submissions will not be accepted under any circumstances. There are deadlines for a reason.
    6. When you post the pictures or e-mail them to me, please include the shard you are on.

    To make things easy, we have two ways for you to submit your entries. The first is to post them as attachments as replies to this thread.

    Alternatively, you can just e-mail me the pics. My email is [email protected] I’ll edit them down to proper size/dimensions and host them on uohomedecor.com under the Deco Contests menu as well as post them to this thread for everyone to see.


    A panel of judges will decide on the winners. If you are interested in being a judge, please reply to this thread or PM me. Winners will be announced Jan. 5.

    Prizes are as follows (if anyone wants to sponsor prizes for future contests, please contact me):
    • 1st place: Choice of a vet reward through 11th year
    • 2nd place: Choice of a vet reward through 5th year
    • 3rd place: Pen of Wisdom
    Prizes may contain additions at a later point, which we will add here if it comes through. If you are on Siege, you can choose between the prizes listed or gold as I have 2m gold and 14th anni gifts on Siege.

    Please note: You are welcomed to enter this contest even if you entered the official UO contest.
