    Holiday Decoration Contest Winners!

    I really want to thank all of the players that opened their houses to help build the community and promote the holiday spirit. All the entries looked wonderful and all were very unique. There is clearly a large amount of talent on the Atlantic shard. I have seen the houses several time and each time I see something new. All the entrants names will be recorded in the archives. There have been placed three Trophies in front of the winning houses signifying their achievement. These trophies will be placed in the EM reward after the new year. The Winners are:

    People's Choice: Pixie Dust – by Cimber Preece

    EM's Choice (Eris): Serpent Cross Tavern – by Woody

    EM's Choice (Nestor): How the Grinch Stole Christmas – by Ginger Snap

    Congrats to the winners! The competiton was amazing and I knew I didn't stand much of a chance this year. I'm not sore for losing though. Frankly, I'm glad to have lost to such beautifully decorated houses. Besides, there's always next time :)

    Is there a list of coordinates of the houses or a runebook with locations? I wasn't able to attend the tour but would love to see them :) I checked the EM web site and didn't see any specifics. I found the screenshots thread, but would love to check them out in person!

    The runebook may still be at the EM Reward Hall, but I've already demo'd my house so I could design it better :)

    Congrats to everyone. Hopefully the next contest will go a bit more smoothly for everyone, feelings won't get hurt, and some more effective communication and rules be instilled and followed through on.

    Happy Holidays everyone.

    I cannot even fathom the amount of time that went into each of these. I really liked the tavern. I never quite understood the super busy theme to modern UO homes though. I look at them and my eyes begin to cross. There is something to be said for simple, clean looks that respect negative space :p
