Admin Post The Spring Festival is coming to an end, please collect everything from your shops and vendors. This is warning one of three before we slowly remove the shops. We hope you guys enjoyed it this year! We have taken some notes and look forward to making it even better next year. We are excited to announce Ultima Online Forever's 1st Annual Spring Festival! This will run from this Friday(evening), April 27th, 2018 to Sunday(evening), May 6th, 2018. During this festival you will be able to go to the festival location, pick a shop, then place a vendor for 1 week in that location. This location will be advertised non stop with gates to all towns during its time. There will be casino games, auctions, special appearances, events and much more through out the entire 10 days that the event will run where the focus will be on trade and having fun. How this will work is there will be just over 50 shops and it will be a first come first serve. You will need to have an OPEN HOUSE SPOT on one of your (3) accounts to take a vendor. You will simply run into a shop and click on the sign and claim the house, then place your vendor. Houses with no vendors will be removed after 12 hours. Vendors with no items will be removed after 2 hours. You may place as many vendors in one shop as you can fit. You may let others place vendors within your shop. There will be bankers available. WHAT THE SPRING FESTIVAL HAS TO OFFER: VENDORS, A LOT OF VENDORS WITH GOOD DEALS (HOPEFULLY). ENTERTAINMENT AT RANDOM DONE BY ROLE PLAYERS. CASINO GAMES BY RISING SUN CASINO. AUCTIONS FROM THE UOFOREVER COMMUNITY AUCTION. FUN, GOOFY INVASIONS. FOOD FIGHTS WITH PRIZES TO THE VICTORS.

All 10 days of events will be held in the Festival area. HOW TO RENT A SHOP: To rent a shop you simply need to find a shop with an outside sign that says "This building is for sale or rent!" like the picture below: Once you find a sign that means that shop is currently open for rent! Simply click the sign and click "Claim House". The rent prices are a STEEP 1,000 Gold Pieces per real life day. PLEASE NOTE: You will need an open house spot to claim a shop. DIDN'T GET A SHOP? NO PROBLEM! Many shop owners are renting out vendors within their shop. Simply double click one of the pink deeds on the ground once you find one and if their rental price suits you, accept! Those setting up vendors may want to bank items before coming to the festival and pull items from bank to vendor. To prevent stealing inside your vendor home. (Please note: This is the first time we are running this event. With the scale that the event is and with the amount of groups, people, staff and special appearances we have planned we hope everything goes to schedule and all pieces fall into place. We are fully expecting some glitches/issues here and there as with any event of this size and we plan on learning from those issues and fixing it to make next years festival that much better and bigger.) ADDITIONAL WARNING: Anyone caught trying to purposely disrupt, grief, ruin, player kill or are otherwise negative towards what we are trying to do with this event will face being firewalled, and WILL BE banished from Ultima Online Forever's community and game for the in going future.
