    Don't count mine. I want to use this thread to get the players visiting musuems again. I don't know who has what now except for some and many are set in private so can't see but here is a list of musuems I remember:

    What I determine a big collection is the overall "WOW" factor which is based on a combination of quantity and quality of items from these periods throughout UO history.

    The Server Birth Age of Rares Collecting (1997-1998)

    The Seers Age of Rares Collecting (1998-2001)

    The Golden Age of Rares Collecting (Start of the EM program, GM Zilo, and Shard Transfer) (2003-2007)

    The Dark Age of Rares Collecting (Rampant Duping) (2007-2008)

    The Messanna Age of Rares Collecting (Revival of EM Program) (2009 - Present)

    Thank you for the acknowledgment (although you misspelled my name :p ). I know mine isn't by far the most impressive, but I am passionate about it.

    All, if i mispelled any names or used the wrong character name please correct me and I'll gladly make the edits :thumbup:

    I was very happy to see this list once it was constructed. It tells us that Mesanna and her EM team have made this possible since the EMs revival in 2008. I don't recall the list was ever this impressive not even back in the days of Hemisphere (I call that the Golden Age of Rare Collecting).

    Speaking of that, I actually created an chronological age of rares collecting based on what I remembered and sad to say what a nerd I was and still am since I was there for all of it LOL.

    Starting from the beginning:

    The Server Birth Age of Rares Collecting (1997-1998)

    The Seers Age of Rares Collecting (1998-2001)

    The Golden Age of Rares Collecting (Start of the EM program, GM Zilo, and Shard Transfer) (2002-2005)

    The Dark Age of Rares Collecting (Rampant Duping) lol (2006-08)

    The Messanna Age of Rares Collecting (Revival of EM program up through now) (2008 - Present)

    Thanks for the props Manti, though I would say Weezer has the best collection on legends. I am by no means on his level.

    Thanks Manti for the acknowledgment even if my name is also misspelled :) I know it is hard enough to just keep up with everyone.


    Criket= Cricket but I am really Lady Destiny on Napa Valley. Both of my museum's are private but I am happy to show them at any time. Just send me a pm.

    Echo'ing the thanks for the mention. Looks like I will be re doing my first and second floor this week. I have neglected updating it for the better part of a year. Once I complete it, I will make the house public and make another post with details if folks want to have a look.

    Thanks!

    Oh! No! I was just playing.. I honestly, don't have one, but would like to start one when I get a good set of items going.

    Keeping my eyes peeled open for items for the theme I'm going for though!

    Valentines Day/Love/Romance etc :heart:

    So far I only have a couple things, it's pretty hard to try and get you guys to sell your love themed items lol!

    Have Love's Devotion x2
    Hannahs Necklace with Heart shaped pendant (something like that and europa gold)
    White Stuffy Dwagon
    Bear statues given from Cupid
    Cupid's Carapace (both versions)

    Nothing to really show off yet hehe.

    I am glad you all are enjoying this. It certainly has given me a new perspective when seeing it all together like its presented. Wow we have a big community now.

    Question, should we ask the Mod to sticky this thread and I can try to manage the thread, i.e. updating new collectors and dropping out those who is no longer collecting. Perhaps getting rid of the musuem thread since that takes so long to load each time and the collections are constantly changing?

    You have some NICE stuff!

    My "Museum" is just my Malas Castle with some stuff in it! The Castle is the most valuable thing I have there ;) I think Manti included me because of some of the things I've aquired in the last couple months, most of which I'm still in the process of getting back to Napa and or displayed. Most of what I've got displayed is right now is rubble, suit-sets and a 2 story statue.

    Dragonstorm Manor is just outside of eastern bridge of Umbra. My items for the most part aren't displayed as a normal museum, but rather worked into the decor. I tend to favor special named roses, old crafted double exceptional items and rare drinks. Two teleporters on the bottom floor will take you to the 3rd floor and roof. Pardon the mess.

    Chesapeake: 40. 16'N 38. 16'E
    Guardian's Gate Rare Museum

    This is my place. It is rather new, and was constantly viewed during the Chesapeake Rare Fest this year. It is still being worked on by design and organization. The second level is oddity rares and semi's, while the 3rd floor is going to made up of Guild submitted items, and a tribute to a Curator of the past Lady Katherine of Chesapeake and Guardian's Gate.

    Favorite items: Alpha Hellhound Fang (1 of 2), Bloodstained Tunic (1 of ~30ish), and Magician's Cowl (1 of 5). There are various other server births and event items. I have no theme other than 'old' or 'hard to get' which translates to 'rare' :thumbup:

    can we somehow merge this list just the top thread with Athleas's thread on the self intros and stick it so it can be updated.

    Wow lots of collectors! Hard to pick favorites since there is so many. But I do love the crammed tiny types. Jinx and Saras old museum was my favorite (new ones cool too) it had rares stacked on rares, crammed in corners and on the floor, every time I went in I spotted something new.
    Also liked Peils museum, small house with neat deco and uber rares hidden in the corners. :p
