Hello everyone! As some may know, I've been working on building Stratics wiki, especially the rares database, for the past six years. At this point, I've *almost* seen every last rare item in the game (roughly 12,685), but there's still 221 I've not been able to find, and then there's some where the info is still a bit lacking.

That's where I need your help! For the ones I'm still looking for, if you can tell me where to look, I'll go grab the info I need in game. However, some of these last items are on banned or inactive accounts; if you even have a screenshot of any of them, please post it! For weapons and armor, even if you don't have a picture, but can help with the props for the item, that too would be helpful.

For the items I have seen, but where info is lacking, if you can help fill in/correct the missing year (or type) for any of them, that'd be quite helpful.

Items I'm still searching for (to see, not to buy):

Items I've found,but need info on:

Unknown type, unknown year:

Seer items with unknown year:

EM items with unknown year:

More info needed:
No information is available about how EM Valentine's Day bears were named on Catskills in 2010.

More info needed:
No information is available about whatever EM Valentine's Day bears were made on Catskills in 2010.
I might be able to help with a few items.

1) Crystalline Blackrock: If this is the piece of blackrock with the teleporting charges from the original FOA event, then I actually own it (or at least one, if there are multiple). Unfortunately, it's impossible to display normally -- I am not sure what exactly the issue is, but it's stuck in the wooden box that I put it inside when I left UO for a time, and can't be moved out of it. I'd be happy to send you a screenshot if you'd like.

My memory is that the year was 1998, and it was related to the FOA events. I think it was from some kind of shadow/dark wisp creature. A character called Aeyia got the drop, and then my character later stole it from her (RP-wise). Her player is still around, and might be able to fill in more details if you need it, but I do recall it was when Seer Flare was our Seer in 1998.

2) War Drums of Air and Earth: This is just speculation, but were these related to the Shadow Clan? I seem to have a distant memory of a War Drum of Fire related to them. If they were, my guess would be sometime around 1998-1999.

3) General Jetrin Valek is to be placed under Royal Arrest by order of Sir Geoffrey: As a player, I was involved in the plotting of this story line with our seers at the time, since one of the end results was to decorate two NPC houses in Trinsic (now Felucca) that were used extensively by RP groups at the time. One was the Cornigan House, used by my guild, the Emerald Empire, and the other was Paladin Isle, used by the Paladins of Trinsic, led by Rutger Dag. There was also a tent city placed north of the city for the displaced poor, and for a time, there was even a crack in the walls that let you teleport in and out of Trinsic with a secret word: (One way was: braccalese, the other was eselaccarb -- Braccalese was the family name of a few EE characters who lived in Trinsic).

The story line took place over a few months during 1999, and per this BNN article, I would guess that the item you mentioned was from on or about July 16, 1999: BNN: Martial Law Revoked - A Turn of Events - UOGuide, the Ultima Online Encyclopedia

By the way, do you know who owns the General Valek item? I would love to see if it's displayed anywhere now. Those were good times.

Many thanks. I'll update those when I'm home from work. As for years, would you say 2016 through 2018?

These were given out by EM Adris when he was on Cats, 2011/12. I had talked to him in length about having something on Cats like they did on Pacific at the time I believe. He had instituted these as a Reward System. We had to do stand alone quests and earn points towards getting these. To my knowledge, I Own 4 outta the 5 given for both. Then EM Barnaby came on board to share the shard with EM Adris, right before EM Adris left to go to another shard. EM Barnaby made the Reward a sash also but now had the Character name and Rank on the Sash.

I have 4 of these such sashes and 1 other where to my knowledge I obtained the highest rank before this system went a different route and EM Barnaby retired shortly after.

I would say that's about right for EM Dramnar on Cats. EM Dramnar's drops are from Season 14, 15 and 16.
Yeah, that sounds right to me too. From what I recall, EM Barnaby left in October 2015 after his Nujel'm arc finished up, and outside one event by a substitute EM in or around January/February 2016 that involved alien Godzilla babies, we didn't have an EM on Catskills until May 2016, when Dramnar started. Then he left around the beginning of December 2018.

EM Faine Morgan has left the program :( . Looks like Cats will be getting EM Roenick & EM Obsidian now. EM Roenick now owns the RBG Hall & EM Obsidian now owns the Reward Hall.

Many thanks for all the info! As for who owns it, I don't; I've been collecting data for a good number of years, and most items have moved around a lot in that time.

EM Dramnar had these items as his Rewards for his version of the RBG during his time on Catskills. He gave very few Full Suits out when he had his last RBG Promotions right before he retired from Cats in 2017/18.

Use this link to see the Rewards : RBG: Rewards : UO Catskills EM
Ok, I think I have most info from there; a couple of questions.

1. I've not seen a kilt, but it says Ensigns would get 'kilt and boots'. Can anyone post a pic and the item name for the kilt?
2. Did Inspector or Protector have any associated items? RBG: Rewards : UO Catskills EM doesn't mention them.
3. The cloak I've seen was the Brevet Of The Royal Britannian Guard, Awarded For Outstanding Achievements In Defence Of The Realm. According to RBG: Rewards : UO Catskills EM, Brevet and Commander were different items. I've not seen the Commander item then; anyone able to help with a pic and item name?
4. I'm guessing RBG: Roster : UO Catskills EM is not a dependable page for item counts, as it doesn't list any as higher than Captain (at arms), and I know I've seen the helm, which should only have been a Brigadier reward.

The Boots were a mute point after you got the platemail legs as you could no longer see them.

The Kilt is Hue 1194 & the Boots are Hue 2671

I was 1 Mission behind a few of the RP'ers. To my knowledge at the end No One got the Top Ranks. EM Dramnar held a promotion ceremony and all a sudden the top few player with points ALL got the whole Uniform to complete their set. As I said earlier very few of these in a complete set exists. Very shortly after this EM Dramnar announced his retirement to us and was gone.

Thanks! For the {player name}, Private Of The King's Guard and {player name}, Private First Class Of The King's Guard sashes, could you tell me the hue # for each?

Unfortunately I cannot give you the Hue. When I received them, they were originally Commander Kanlocke of the RBG (EM Character) Green Part of her uniform. I had dyed them white to fit in with my guild colors.

Ok, thanks. I'll look for a screenshot of her uniform and try to match it. :)
