    When I visit other Rares fest I make it a point to join as many contests/events that I can because of the amount work that goes into a fest, its one way of showing my appreciation.

    so with that said I am making the Grande prize for Atlantics up coming festival a three part effort

    This Fest Theme is "TIME"

    First part of the contest:
    So lets go back to days of Olde and dress our vendors accordingly.
    Your vendor needs to be dressed in gear from earlier years in UO and needs to reflect on the other two parts to this contest

    Second part of the contest:
    Stories around the campfire-I love to hear about our earlier years on UO when we were first learning the game mechanics .

    Third part of the contest: In game interaction- it doesn't have to be RP (role Play) but it couldn't hurt
    We will be watching you and grading players interaction for the week of 1/1/18 thru 1/6/18

    IE: a tip on what I would do
    I have a robe from LNR guild (that's right I was in LNR- I needed scrolls) I dress my vendor as a PK in my old robe
    My story at the campfire contest would be all about my champ spawn days
    My in game interaction would be something like the General chat is on Atlantic now (rolls Eyes)
    poking fun, throwing snowballs, killing NPC's etc

    You all have less than a month to save up your funds for shopping, design your vendor gear and come up with a story
    Good Luck!

    Here are the screenshots we were talking about @Queen Arya hopefully I'll be able to find the old Atlantic ones too, wherever those pics went.

    (If anyone else has screenshots of old Rares Festival items, whether they were staff items or from goodie bags, please post them here. We are trying to put together a screenshot collection of as many as possible from the past since this years theme is "time").

    The best part of UO and the Rares fest for me is meeting with friends, making new friends, and talking over our experiences
    We have a winner!
    The Grande Prize was the Time Lords Mirror and Andrasta & her vendor & story was awesome
    We had several stories and it was just a real good time that stretched into the late hours
    Thank you for the great fun
