I've just sent out the last of the presents - if you feel like you missed out, you can email me egg@swut.net - but you only qualify for a prez if you logged in during the official 5x xp times on either Reg or PD, which was midnight to midnight 7th to 9th April UTC, and I won't be giving prez out to anyone who didn't log in. that's the rules, and that's how it has always worked.

Prez can be claimed on any delivery bot.

76 presents in total were sent, which means 76 unique people logged in this weekend! which is not bad for an old-ass game. I tried really hard to make it 1 present per person, NOT per account, so don't complain if your 5 alt accounts didn't all get a prez. If your main account didn't get one, try checking your other accounts.

Tomorrows job, or maybe later in the week, is sorting out the diamond coin merchs on reg & pd. Feel free to post ideas for things you want to buy. Bone & glass tint wands will be getting added to the merch for starters. there is no hurry to spend your coins, but once I stop adding stuff, I will say so - so maybe sit on your coins till then.

I am very appreciative for everyone logging in and playing this weekend (and also, it goes without saying, spending money, and it helps pay my stupid mortgage, but I would like to think you don't need to) and indeed over the last 15 yrs. This game, believe it or not, has kept me sane. I have no plans to shut it down. It is extremely rewarding to tinker with and add things, and see people still playing. That is a rant in itself: I read a lot of 'indie' game dev on twitter and there's all these post-mortems of 'failed' games and stupid indie crap. I think, by some standards, euo is a failed game: but by other standards it's tremendously successful. Fact is I love fact it exists, and fact people play it, and consider it a miracle it exists and that anyone plays it at all.

None of my friends play it (factoid: i started writing it for a friend, who has NEVER played it, so he can get fucked) - but all of you have, so love to all of you and to hell with everyone else

:aus: :heart:

Necro artifacts would be nice. Or Wands that enchant a weapon with a spell thats either unique(xc, sleep wind, IFH), or a traditional spell but the weapon becomes a +7 instead of 5.

Shitty I didn't get to log on for the birthday weekend.

Huge shoutout to you though egg. This game has been up and running longer than any other online game I've played. Thank you for keeping it going this long. Without euo, we would have all had to play Tibia xD :(

Diamond coin ideas
•GWOT that works on any items
•unique pets
•reusable mega yellow and mega blue potion (crystal flask?)
•bag of holding (never be over encumbered)
•Adamantium Healing Ward (reusable)
•Adamantium wand of transference
• Ancient Grimiore (contains every scroll, infinite uses)
•Gem of Amara (ring version of parasol of the trueblood +regen)
•Lord Brownthorne’s Signet ring (+protect, regen, health, mana and AS)
•greater enchanting wand (add 1 additional property to an item)
•Wand of Disguise (create an avatar of any non-2x2 mob in game)
•Invisibility Cloak (usable item, dust of disappearance, infinite uses)
•Orb of experience – offhand item that stores experience gained well-equipped on a character at level 500. Account bound, experience could be recovered by other characters on that account
•Giant Crab/Kraken lures (usable item increases chance of crab/kraken spawn, reusable)
* Wand that increases attack strength from +9 to +10
* Reusable flask of feel great

Thanks to you I had have alot of fun. This game is one of the only games I've played on/off for 3 years now or something. I always come back.
On a side note.
Nothing too gamebreaking, but just fun.

What I consider a blessing in disguise is gold tint wand. Tint anything you want gold :) (including arties)
A chicken toy you can equip where you can inflict 1 damage to other players, or turn them into chickens (avatar wise).
Rope of tagging along. A rope when used on a member of your party drags him to you for as long as it's active. Even when moving it will be dragged.
A pocket capsule where you can catch a neutral or evil mob and spawn (use) it anywhere.
Saddles for cow. Or do they exist already?
Perk of spatial sense. Draws a line 5 tiles from you. (Handy for mob aggro and distance).
Cap of flying. Disequips everything you wear, but you can fly aslong as you have this equipped. Could be also called Nanny Mcphee's umbrella.
Statue no justsu abilty. Like shadowmeld, but forever.
Calendar, know which day it is in-game.
Confuse me cookies
Polypile arty wand.

Out of ideas for now.


As for ring of protect, it exist.
Ring of regen also exists.
Regen off hand is mark of the beholder arty
Ring + attack also exists.
Bone ring or bone orb increase hp.

Wand of Pet Mastery - Make your pet a boss variant of its kind

Removed a dozen other ideas from here that are cool, but just won't beat a tint wand.

regarding the birthday stocking, of course I fucked something up

the code that opened the stocking was not made live (I suspect) until the 2nd batch went out. Meaning anyone that opened the stocking (and the new thorium stockings are all teh same) immediately would have to the xtal flower etc.

it seems like a rat was sniffed and many people delayed opening - smart, very smart!

if you opened early and want to swap your flower etc for the Fontana, email me ! egg@swut.net - if you know anyone this happened to pass the message on - I suspect it's only about 5 people.


since the stockings are all teh same you can now safely open it !

Maybe instead of a bag of Holding, an ability Phase Banker, which summons a bank at your side for a sec. could be your normal bank inventory, or one set up to be smaller and intended for holding pots, scrolls whatever. With a tile kinda like your octopus with another head. OR I was thinking something similar but its a portal instead.

Mirror of Vanity- When dropped in a player house, looking at the mirror will always grant Feel Great. Small chance of summoning ridiculously buffed shadow clone.
