How is the rares collector community here on uoforums? It's definitely one of my...addictions.:grin:

I have quite a few nice items.... no really GOOD old things though, unless I have missed noticing it. I lack 4 busts having the full set, have all the snowglobes and odds and ends items such as 10000 diamond jewelry, full set and 100000 diamond wedding band, and a bottle of eggnog that someone tried to destroy by drinking.. Imagine.. drinking it!! It has ONE drink left in it, and a couple practice weapons.. that sort of things.

I have a few nice pieces, but wish I had more. I just don't have the gold to purchase the nice stuff.

Ive lost a few nice items over the years, had an ex wipe my acct once, then lost a house while inactive for a year. In the past year though, Tov and I have done quite a bit of collecting, and have found some rather nice items. Probably nothing extremely rare, but a few nice things and several just odd things, alot of old school items. An original house deed, interior house door key, coal armor, some event items, html jewels/runebooks, a few of the old regs like pumice, wyrms heart, dragon blood etc Some of the items are displayed at the auction house, most of the rest are on display at our house right next door to the auction house. Still a few things in storage, and still a long list of items Id still like to get ahold of lol

It's my biggest interest in UO right now.
While I can't afford much I like to research and find out about all the things other people can afford to have :P

If I didn't have to spend so much money on +20 Magery scrolls I would have more rares LOL

I got a few of my goodies from my oldest son. He gave me the account over 4 years ago, and has played his own account for.. hmmmm I think he started the end of the year UO was one year old. I also got a nice handful from happening to be mining when a house fell right beside me in a remote area at 2 am. I actually got every single item in the house! It was a log cabin, so not terribly huge amount, but nice. Makes you hungry for more! :laugh:

Then I shopped to complete my set of Snowglobes and Busts... am still looking for Kyrnia, Zendelia Kryss, Martoo Saul, G'Thunk, Sage Humbolt, Lathiari and Gilforn. Wow... :'( I thought I only needed 3 or 4... sigh... haven't looked at my list in a while.

I'm trying to complete my busts collection as well, though it's a lot more difficult since I'm collection them in only one color.

I also keep running the collector's quest and assembling the obsidian statues with a character named "The Lost King". Someday I'll get the 1 in 1,000 that takes the name of the character who assembled it.

I tried to do all one color as well, but ended up selecting a rainbow ranging through the blues and into purples. I flatly refuse to have the sick green or yellow ones. Unless I find one of those last 8 I need and it's the sick colors... I will have to accept that one I suppose! :laugh:

Yes, that WOULD be a find! I wish you luck on that search!

One of my 'vaguer' collections is runes. I have a wonderful selection of old runes 'inside' places you shouldn't be able to go and rooftops... some of which don't work anymore. Am VERY sad about that!

I run that quest with my nox mage, saving all the pieces then giving them to my Smith Lord of the Abyss.

i love rares, i mostly collect rares that i think look good. i have a few event items also. the only rares i have are like bucket of water, white deamon bone armor, green champain glass, dread lord head, and tons of lesser rares. Then i have three catskills event items Gladiator Boots, Pure Ice White Brit Guard Sash, and Lenshire Chan Tabard Surcoat. Not too much compared to some people but its a start.

I completely understand that! Even with Bod Books those things HOG space! I really don't understand why they count as more than one even when full. I mean, books are pages.. many many pages... Bods are 'pages' in the BoD books.... irksome.. but still better than having to keep them in a chest in piles!!!
