Happy 16th Year Anniversary!!!!!!!!
Ultima Online’s 16th anniversary gift bag will be delivered between midnight Monday, September 15th, 2013 and midnight October 14th, 2013. Characters need to be 30 days or older to receive the gift bag which contains :
- a 16th anniversary pony statuette (no it is not a pink pony)
- 16th anniversary gift card
- 16th anniversary plant deed
- 16th anniversary silver serving tray.
New Potted plant deed will create a specially hued Japanese maple tree, a wall mount staghorn fern deed, a potted dieffenbachia plant or a specially hued enormous Venus flytrap plant.
The Venus flytrap plant functions just like a trash can which allows you to have more than one trash can in your house and is tied to the Clean up points.
