I had a blast when I logged in today to discover Vesper was overrun with monsters. I saw ancient wyrms, titans, cyclops, orc berserkers (super tough), orc mages, trolls, orc lords, and regular orcs. There was so much chaos and I lost a dragon to the horde invasion. Thankfully I got some screenshots for posterity.

One of my guildmates looted a trophy from the event. Did anyone else happen to get one?

great event, everyone should donate to UOSA to show our thanks, and maybe with the % of donations up this week/month, they will continue events. Let the money talk!!

Invasion? More like a distraction! I had a lot of fun dipping my fingers into most of the participants' pockets. The majority of the loot I scavenged was from when a few of you died trying to mob the orcs near the fort before the Butcher spawned.

Unfortunately I rebound my screenshot button and didn't realize it until afterwards. Next time I won't be so careless. :)

Thank you kindly to the UOSA staff for putting this together.

If someone got a screenshot of the butcher please upload it here. I went there but didn't get to see him.

It was tons of fun. Lots of players were here, and some people just died over and over. Someone got a boat and loaded it up with orc mages and sailed it over in my direction. That was my only death when they all casted on me at once. Made quite a bit of gold from collecting the loot too.

THIS is exactly what makes people WANT to be on the shard! Keep it up and make everyone sorry they weren't on for the events ;)

My advice, mix it up with the event announcements. Like, event X happening at Xpm, or event happening Saturday (no specific time), etc. so sometimes people are hovering around the shard just waiting for the event to happen. My two cents. Love it!

I got nothing of the sort.

When the sys/mess went out, I was preparing a TMap Run. Logged off the Carto and on the Bard.

TO VESPER !

I Always die at these events, at least once. *cough* Bradensux* cough* 'cause the Bard actually gets a loadout of Equip, making restocking a pain. Didn't die at all. I wasn't slacking or playing it safe either.. After 4 hours, my hands were shaking from the constant sawing. Provo..target next target.. grab bars for the next skill use...it was almost too much. Must have burned 300 ea reg in 3 restock trips plus Monster looted reg bags from dead players.

Now a small rant. I got nothing done today <till later> . I don't get to play much anymore. When I do get the chance to slag off and waste my life here, it's rare. .. and I'd like a small memento of the occasion.
A 0 point trophy would have been excellent. Screw silver. I wanted something to lock down in my house to remind me of why I still play UO 16 years later.

I jokingly asked in IRC for a participant ribbon. Ones like Vega got in gym class... ya know.
I don't think a sash with a title like... "Hero of Vesper 1/30/2014" would be that hard to whip up.
Not whining. Just an alternative to Silver/"trophies for logging in" kinda stuff. Wouldn't affect the economy or era accuracy... but still something for the players.

Great event though. Thx for whoever spent their time doing this for us. It was very well done.

Your name is in one of my screenshots! I kept laughing every time I saw a used kotex provoking monsters.
