We are excited to announce Ultima Online Forever's 1st Annual Winter Festival! This will run from this Saturday(evening), January 12th, 2019 to Sunday(evening), January 20th, 2019. 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 WINTER FESTIVAL HAS TO OFFER: VENDORS, A LOT OF VENDORS WITH GOOD DEALS (HOPEFULLY). FUN, GOOFY INVASIONS. 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.
