Wabbit Season and such

Discussion in 'UO Origin' started by imported_Xotche of Meade, Mar 16, 2008.

  1. Good folk of Origin, may I ask if there be any others on this shard who do large scale event and festivals here? From my story posted several weeks ago, I am new here (from great Chesapeake) and have decided to journey here for a bit.

    To my surprise I have seen several familiar faces and am happy not to feel so alone. Corin, it was wonderful to see you here and I do miss your grand shops and libraries from Glydenfeld. Did you set up shop here and where is it please? Also several other pvp players whom I recognize is the spawn good here?

    Every year my guild or combination of other guilds and player towns held festivals or just events to celebrate seasons. Either it be something as fun as a giant net toss or marathon or 'last man standing' we even had some very funny felluca events 'pizza boy delivery' battle of towers many many fun times.

    Anyways, it's almost wabbit season! I do not see so far a post for egg hunting, bunny bashing or best hat contest. Do we have a magistrate on this shard who would lend an ear and advise a new comer?

    I will be happy to help host but do not want to step in on a particular town or guild that already does fun things like this. [​IMG]

    Welcome to Origin! And there is something going on at least a couple times a month here. We are trying to get together to do more. There is a Story Night the third Saturday of each month at the Road To Hope Tavern, just had a Luna House giveaway, last month and archery contest, this month we are losing pets and need to find them, Where in the World Is Orhpeito?.

    I am glad you come with a taste for flavoring our part of the world. Welcome twice over! Toes to step on? Heavens no! New friends to meet and make - yes! More events to have fun with - yes!

    We are working on getting an all shard assembly formed and meeting every month to do at least one event each month - hope you would be interested in that too! A place we can all come together and do things for the shard and the game beyond toes.

    Hi Xotche! Wow.. I'm very suprised to see you here! It's nice to have another fellow Chessy friend on Origin. =)

    When I moved here I brought my library with me and it's at (nearly) the same house it was on Chessy before I left. In Makoto, along the Southern town wall. I have a few vendors but haven't had a lot of time to keep them up secondary to work keeping me busy during the week and a fund-raising activity I've been working on for the MS society.

    Again good to see you! [​IMG]

    Ah, the Makoto area, gotcha. Here I had hopes that you also owned the very large home where your other library was on the cross roads in Brit (aka Gyldenfeld on Chessy). I shall hope to see it soon and have no idea how many trips it must have taken to develope such a large collection for another shard. *shutters* at the thought of recreating all those runes!


    Good folk of Origin, I do come with a wonderful reputation for authentic comic relief from several multi-shard events. Octoberfest (and RL Renfest) being my favorite, we also have two very strong player towns on Chessy, Paxliar being the oldest. *puts in plug for orc townleader* www.paxlair.com

    After several years of running events I have grown a little weary but do miss a good bunny bash and a 'family' egg hunt as I did know many children to play on Chessy during the weekends in the afternoon. Though I do not recomend children for this game it was nice when adult and children did share 'good' fun.

    <font color="blue"> I would be honored to be invited to any meeting that promotes shard wide FREE events for anyone to participate in. </font>

    On Origin at this time I cannot supply the huge prizes and gold we use to; give me time to finish grinding some characters that can withstand a white kraken, or at the very least a fun dungeon crawl, heheheeh [​IMG].


    To get everyone grining of things to hopefully come, here are some old tried and true favorites:

    Cow tipping
    Chicken vs squirels
    Battle of the Sexes
    Last Man Standing
    Giant snow ball rolling
    Scavenger Hunts
    Yard Sales (for Newbies)
    Murder Mystery Night at the Zoo
    Regattas
    BAGBALL Tourneys

    Please be reminded that no one person can run an event well with 100+ character/ participants at an event... it takes a couple of kind, happy spirited folks to plan and host larger scale pixel lagging crazy like a 3 legged cat on a frozen pond fun I am talking about. So when a post is sent with invitation, please join in!

    I didn't recreate.. I brought all of the books with me from Chessy! Those that weren't useful I did try to start another set for, such as ore locations, but never finished it. I completed maybe 3 books. It was too much work to do again and I didn't have the time. And then they made the locations random so it worked out. =)

  8. Consider myself warned [​IMG] and perhaps needing to extend more invitations to next years RL-UO Renfest gathering in Houston. This will be our 4th gathering (Indy, Michigan, Maryland, now Texas *shudders*) and our 9th year (some of us close to ten) of playing together, now that's long term pixel addiction, hehehe.

    Thank you, I have enjoyed my stay so far!
