    If you lost your Soul Stones and are trying to see if anyone has them or likewise you are an IDOCer and want to donate some, you have come to the right place.

    The Lake Superior Server has a Soul Stone graveyard. I have provided below how you can travel there. The Soul Stones are locked down by an EM. If you find your Soul Stones, you need to contact the EM to retrieve them for you.

    The EM is Falcon and can be reached by email: [email protected]

    If you need help moving any Soul Stones to Lake Superior, I will assist in the move for you. (ICQ in signature)

    The person that showed me all this and will handle the hand off of the Soul Stones on Lake Superior will be UO's own Pandora ICQ#246041976


    Where is Lake Superior Soul Stone Graveyard:

    Go to the EM hall in Britian:
    LA_EMHouse.JPG

    Teleport off the Purple rune on the Ground in the above picture^

    It will take you here:

    Then head due North and cross the bridge to find the graveyard:
    LA_EMBridge.JPG

    And finally the GraveYard itself:

    Big thank you to Pandora for showing me around and for the info!

    Yeah i found this graveyeard several years ago. It was terrifying to see thoose dead dreams. I didn't know that this is a GY for non LS Soulstones. So if i stumble across an orphan one, i will transfer it to LS in the future.

    A returning player found two of his. He did not have skills on them but Full soulstones are nice to have.

    It's visually quite impressive, a genuine tribute. But to give you an idea how big this graveyard is, I walked through it today and concluded it would take more time to find my name amid those hundreds of monuments than just to rebuild the lost skills. :confused:

    Yes there is one for Atlantic. It is currently being moved to this location from the previous home across from Goodman's Library. Soulstones were being dropped off regularly until they were added to the clean up system.

    A Soulstone Graveyard like LS was asked for Atlantic but was turned down a few years ago.

    I think that Soulstones should be returned to the owner's bank box when a house falls.

    I hope to request this at the January 29th meeting.

    If the idea was implemented I would put all these collected stones into a house and drop it so they could be returned to their rightful owner.

    GL's asked for one too... same response...

    Rather sad.

    I'm still of the opinion that items like that which are account bound should shoot to the first available bank box of the account when it becomes "lost"... you should be able to get it back rather like personal bless deeds, soulstones, shard shields.... all that stuff you should be able to reclaim it... deleting it from anywhere else in the game and putting it back into your bankbox when "reclaimed"... Returning players would get a pop up saying you have unclaimed items blah blah... do you want to reclaim them? and then you click yes and they go into your bank.

    I plan to bring this up at the next governor's meeting. It's a great idea! Maybe it's time for other shards to ask (or ask again) since a precedence has now been set! :)

    I normally don't toot Gils horn, but they've been doing this for years on Siege, without the aid (that we know of) of any EM.

    Wish there was a way to set the permissions of an entire container instead of one at a time. Once I have them all set you'll be able to come and try them.

    @Miri of Sonoma does an AWESOME job keeping up, and providing a "good home" for returned Soulstones in her "Garden of Lost Souls" house, just outside the Makoto-Jima moongate, on Sonoma. If you are looking for some of your stones it is a GREAT place to check. :)

    Yes that works but I still have to set each box and soulstone to "any" in order for you to try it.

    I think it's worth a sticky for sure, although perhaps not in Uhall. We try to avoid keeping things stuck permanently in Uhall due to how fast they stack up when added onto the various temporary stickies like meet and greets. Too many of them pushes the normal threads down the page enough to annoy people, and it's difficult to decide which permanent stickies stay and which get removed once a cleanup is needed (the 20th anniversary ones currently there will need moving somewhere else more permanent at some point too).

    Would you be ok with it being moved to the Lake Superior forum and stickied there? Since that's where the graveyard is.

    Everyone seems to be hung up on the Location being LS. The graveyard is not only LS people. In fact I detail a plan in my post to move all soulstones from anywhere to there from now on. So moving it to a specific server seems weird.

    I dont care for any credit or anything, just copy the info in the first post and put it wherever so returning peeps can hopefully find their lost soulstones, get a jump back into the game and stay!

    Ok, in that case, the thread has been moved to the Players Corner with a permanent redirect from Uhall and stickied there so returning players have the best chance to see it. A lot of returning players end up over there asking questions and should see it. If you'd prefer it get moved somewhere else, we can do that too. I asked about converting it into an article also so anyone browsing the article guides can find it that way as well, hopefully that can be done. Between the redirect, players corner, and article it will be in three different places at once that get heavily read by returning players.

    It's a great idea to collect the soulstones all in one place, and very generous of you to transfer all the soulstones over there for people, thanks for doing that for the community.

    Hi All,

    I've just returned and thought I'd check the various forums to get up to speed. I stumbled across this post and man am I glad I did. I checked the graveyard on LS and actually found (5) of my soulstones!!!! Quick question though, is Falcon still the right person to contact these days? I ask as there is another name on a house sign in front of the graveyard.

    The Devs should make SS's reclaimable if they were from your own vet reward through the context menu on yourself or such. If they were from a token then it isnt reclaimable through it. Thats if they even are trackable like that.

    There is a new Soulstone Garden for Atlantic behind the EM Reward Hall. Look for the little house in the back with the mailboxes. Thank you to Mesanna & EM Roenick!

    It would be awesome if there was a master list of soulstones that have been recovered so we don't have to create a new character on LS.

    This'd be implemented as soon as possible
    If they are account bounded'd be reclaimable

    Mesanna?
    Dev team?

    Do it pls

    I think reducing the turn-in value would be a great start. Increase the likelihood of stones ending up in places like these, while still keeping the community involved in returning players recovery efforts, and also being very easy to implement . I imagine the relief of finding even a few might go a long way towards cementing a returning EJ players chances of subscribing.

    Maybe the value of used-up fragments could be increased for those opposed to such a simple solution... (*****!)

    I had no problem making a new char on LS and using the free 1k to buy a horse, not that I found any... On any shard, lol. Turn-in points!!
