    About five years ago now when I returned to UO after a long absence, I had a black forest ostard. I released it not realizing they didn't spawn anymore. I'm just wondering if anyone out there happens to have one still? My guess is that if anyone happens to have one they are one of the rarest pets in the game.

    I only remember frenzied ostards being shadow hued, I can't say that I've ever seen a black forest ostard.

    Ya, there were black forest ostards. They weren't dead black like a dread warhorse, but they were a rich, almost purple black if I remember correctly. Even back when they spawned though, they were rare and took some effort to find.

    Ya, it had been so long since I looked at them, I couldn't tell. There are shadow hued frenzieds, but they aren't the same as the old black forest ostards. The old black forest ostards were darker.

    Maybe you have to tempt them out with Black Forest gateau?

    Well I'd say "if only", but if they could still be tamed, I wouldn't care about them... So it's a catch 22... :)
