    About a month ago I decided it would be cool to put glowing runes all over my castle. I was thinking I'd "ward" all my doors with glowing runes to prevent entrance from vampires and such. Vampires are such a pain in the ass once they get a foot hold in your house as you well know. So for about a month I bought every glowing rune on ATL I saw. I must have bought like 40 or 50 in the 3 to 7 million range. I now see glowing runes with prices around 20 million. I'm thinking to myself I probably did this lol. So I'm pretty well set on these now and hopefully prices should return to normal in the near future. Sorry

    It's hard to post a pic because I have doors all over and I put 2 in front of each door lol Like where I have double doors I put one in front of each door, stairwell,stuff like that. But I haven't seen a vampire for weeks.

    I just tried to put them at every entrance lol. Sorta like this. My museum. My castle. Wherever a vampire might get in. Or if they got in they would just hit another warding. Seemed logical at the time.

    I seem to be infested with the 1950s style vampires. They're all very well dressed.

    If you didn't leave all that blood lying around in that murder room you apparently have, maybe the stylish vampires wouldn't be drawn to your place.

    I prefer calling it the "Justice Room". That room is rented to an old mage and I'm not sure what goes on in there. He keeps it locked.

    So I talked to the mage that rents the room and it's all very innocent. The blood is from where he prepares chickens for dinner. He is deeply religious and even has an alter to pray to the ghods. He has a lovely well behaved pet spider. Who doesn't have a few skeletons in their closet? Everything seems on the up and up. I mentioned the blood might be drawing vampires and he said he scrubs and scrubs but those nasty blood stains are tough to get out. I advised him that might cost him his security deposit and he promises to work on it.

    Oh, well clearly everything is good then. Just make sure he has his Breaking Wheel registered with the kingdom, don't wanna get hit with any fines during a routine inspection. And probably put his pet zombie on a leash

    It's really amazing how just one person on a buying spree can totally alter the UO market like this. It's even more evident at higher levels, like someone managing to raise the price of a rare from 100m to 500m overnight just by buying them all.

    I have an unnatural amount of some items. I get on kicks where I will collect multiples. When the winged ranger helms dropped I bought 6 of them. I have my own personal ranger squad protecting my castle. They all have ranger armor, marksman set and skara brae sasheshes. I am working on getting them all rugged ranger boots. 5 more pair to go. With these guys the price on winged helms started at 70 mil each and the last one I bought was 130. So, I unintentionally caused prices to go up on the items I was collecting!
