    Hi everyone-

    There are a few things I collect that most people think of as being worthless. I thought I would mention them here, so perhaps some of you might save them, if you run across them in IDOC loot. You could take them to rares fest, if you have space available on your trip. Once they arrive at the rares festival, they could become mine!

    I rarely pay even 1k each for any of these, so it isn't like I am fixing to make everyone rich, sorry guys. I know... they are trash, but don't remind me. Just let me enjoy my cheap thrills. (Yeah, "Fixin' to" - that's Texas talk. Just humor me. I'll go away soon enough. =)

    Only three things are coming to mind right now. There are probably a few others, but I am not remembering any others, right now.

    The three things I wish you would haul across the world for me are:
    • "Happy 6th Anniversary!" cakes - these are the yellow ones.
    • "Happy Birthday! Thank You For Celebrating 5 Years Of Glorious Adventure With Ultima Online" cakes - these are the ones that come in various colors.
    • Blessed Bacon - only the blessed ones.

    The things I collect stack. The colored cakes only stack with cakes that are the same color, but they do stack.

    Do any of you collect worthless things, too? Surely I am not the only one, right? If there are worthless things you save, I will see about saving whatever it is for you. Then I can take it to rares fest, so you can increase your worthless collections like I do! =)

    Thanks for reading!

    BlissMarie

    My worst habit is collecting Personal Bless Deeds with funny names.

    It's bad b/c they DON'T stack and I'm getting to the point where they are affecting my lockdown space!

    Of particular note, I have:

    PBD for Sex, A Kiss, Satan Himself, I Hate Lag, Lag Machine, A Secret Pact, A Rabbit, A Mouse....

    I can't even begin to list the ones that I'm too embarrassed to type out!

    Bliss- I'll be sure to find some of your "Wants" by Raresfest Time! I'm so looking forward to everyone visiting my home shard!

    Speaking of PBDs...

    Someone named a book "Box of Cheese" and used a Personal Bless Deed from "A Mouse". I saw it at a Rares Festival a couple years ago. Hilarious! =)

    Great memories! This post made me go dig through my bag of funny named deeds I used to love and had forgotten about.

    I think my favorites I have are A PBD for 'a moron', 'a newbie' and 'a loser'.

    I used to hand them to friends and tell them they must have dropped their deed back there..

    I also have 'your mother' (another funny one)


    And perhaps a little dubious..

    'A Personal Bless Deed for Anyone'


    Fun times!

    PBD for Decoration
    PBD for a Kiss (Yes I have one as well)
    For my best Friend
    For HappyAnniversary
    For my Dear
    For Your Birthday

    ZING!!

    But yeah, I've got a small collection of items with pbd's on them. The weirdest I've seen is the book Kim mentioned, a complete suit that has matching pbd's on each piece and a cauldron with a pbd on it.

    Funny stuff

    Hah, I have a stack of those yellow cakes and a smaller one of the blessed bacon as well. I'll collect anything that stacks, it only takes up 1 lockdown, amirite? :)

    I like weird things as well, I wish more of them came up for sale. Bizarre bugged items are just neato. My favorite is a little red book that when you double click it instead of opening it gives you the sextant coordinates of where you are at. No, I've never tried to copy it. I'd probably do it wrong and end up blanking it out hehe.

    Uh-oh, competition! I will take duplicates to the fest for you, too. =)
    Do you collect the sixth anniversary ones, too or just the other colored ones?


    R.C., you eat the bacon?! Oh, horrors!

    You are right, if it only takes one lockdown, I might be hoarding it! Let me run check on my numbers of those two items. I don't have many. I only have 207 slices of blessed bacon and 41 yellow cakes. If they had been stackable back when I did IDOCs every day, I would have had more, but darnit - I didn't keep them. Anyway, I'll race you to 60k on the cakes! Hmm - there probably aren't 60k of them left in all of UO.

    PBDs are fun to collect! I decided to let go of most of mine a while back, since they take up so much room. I think I only have two now, one for Cinderella and one for A New Car.

    I have enjoyed reading about all of your collections. I'm sure there are more of you out there who collect. Who hasn't confessed, yet? Come on! =)

    If I have to add my wierd little obsession, then mine is torn between Practice Weapons (I have 3 swords, 3 bows, 4 maces, 6 hatchets, 3 crooks, 3 spears, 3 gnarled staffs and 3 skinning knives, yet still have no battle axe! :()

    I also collect those coloured armour suits from one of the recent events (I forget which), such as the dark red and charcoal platemail suits.

    Not so much a worthless collection is that I collect rubble, and have 29 dock floor pieces, which everyone keeps trying to buy from me! :)

    If anyone collects the PBDs I have a few I could bring along:

    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday (No Friday :()
    Poo On A Stick
    Harry Potter
    Buddah
    Dolly Dagger
    My Best Friend
    A Friend
    Somebody
    Anybody
    My Favorite
    Me
    Someone Special
    My One-And-Only
    Nobody Special
    My Only Love
    Someone I Love
    My Sweet Love

    So quite a few that I could sell/trade if anyone is collecting! :)

    I'll trade you some suits from that event for the Personal Bless Deed for "Someone I Love".
