[News] Farewell Hanaho

Discussion in 'UO Oceania' started by Katlene, Oct 27, 2008.

    The great Hanaho, member of the Third Legion, friend and comrade to many, has decided to travel to another shard.
    He didn’t want to leave with out farewelling those he had come to know over his time on Oceania and give something back to those that made his time here special.

    It started as a off with some fun at Luna Bank. Hanaho, a stealth mage, was walking around the bank randomly dropping 100,000gp cheques. This was very amusing to those watching, with the reactions from players picking up the cheques being quite comical.
    Someone later made a great description of this as..."just like someone kicked an ant’s nest".

    After teasing everyone at the bank, Hanaho decided to take it further.
    He was assisted by Benji, Astaroth, Samantha Henry, and Miss Behavin Angel, and decided to make the drops at different locations throughout the lands.

    A couple of the group would stay at Luna bank and via guild chat, the cheque droppers would tell the others of the locations, which were then relayed to everyone at the bank.

    Word got around about what was happening and many more people showed up to join in on the fun.

    Some of the locations included, The Terathan Keep, Despise Ogre Lords, Shame level one, The Savage camp near Blackthorns Castle, the Rat camp near Compassion Moongate, Ice Dungeon, and a few more.

    Each session lasted about 10 to 15 minutes.
    People would have to defend themselves against the monsters in each area, all the while keeping an eye out for a cheque that would appear on the ground.
    Everyone was rallied back to Luna bank so they could prepare the next location.
    The participants waited anxiously and left like a wild stampede when the next location was revealed.

    It was great fun and many players picked up a lot of items and gold.
    The event ran all day and into the night, and it was great to see players from all guilds and walks of life interacting and having a wonderful time.

    Hanaho, with his true form of generosity, dropped cheques totalling to the value of some 120 million gold! As well as some artefacts that were dropped earlier and many more were given away.
    This included 20 soul stones fragments, 20 heritage tokens, 15 bronze hammers, runic saws in oak and ash, 20 Doom Artefacts, a Japanese promotional token and the list goes on.
    A huge sale at the Third Legion vendor house saw opportunities to buy high end doom artefacts and all sorts of assorted goodies at half and lower prices.
    Many items were just given away.

    Such an act of generosity could not go past with out recognition.
    Hanaho, all those involved in your event express their gratitude and will not forget you or what you did.
