The quest begins in Britain at the Premier Provisioners and Fish Shop, Speak to Fredrick the shop owner. 

Adventurer's Spirit
Exploring Passages

Ho! Adventurer! Quickly now I need assistance! My brother-in-law, Finniis McTavish went off adventuring. I was crazy to have allowed it but my sister was convinced the no account could make his fortune. The last I heard he was headed off to map and explore the passages to the Lost Lands. Then this morning I received a note saying some fellow at the Trinsic passage had found his bag and would return it for a reward. Go secure the bag's return then explore the rest of the passages for any sign of Finnis.  Return to me after you have collected any clues from the 10 other passages. 

To complete the quest you must find all listed items:

Tin cup
Shop Key
Bag-which require 3 items explained below to obtain.

All items will be marked with Finnis' name and owned by you. There are “fake” items that will spawn in the locations.

Travel to the Trinsic Passage and locate the Sinister Looking Stranger.

The stranger turns blood red eyes toward you. Ahh the shopkeeper sent you for his brother-in-laws bag. Very well then but he promised me a reward and you appear to be empty handed!
Tell you what, there is a camp of those savages east of here, it is rumored their warriors sometimes carry special valuable golden artifacts. Bring me back a golden spear, mask and bone armor chest and I shall trade you for the bag. 

Kill these savages until you find all 3 items and return to the the stranger and he will reward you with the bag.

Bod Book Quest

Retrieval of Stolen Rares

Part one:
Vesel's Grief
56 . 46N 50 . 7W

When my father recently passed, he left me his life's work. I was heartbroken to discover that some of my family have stolen some valuable rares. If you return the items to me I can reward you!

The Lost Prophet Scroll Foretelling the Fall of Blackthorne was taken by my Uncle Loki, who lives on the far North East Side of Britian.

The only remaining Book of Verse penned by Dawn was taken by my youngest brother, Regis in Buc's Den.

A painting of Old Haven was pilfered by my Uncle Robert, a farmer in Skara Brae.

Reward: Ultimate Bod Book

Part two:
Loki's Hunger
6 . 46N 22 . 59E

Loki looks at you warily Ah yes. Jin sent you! I expected he would send someone, but I will tell you the truth. I took only what was due. Laboured for my brother for years helping him collect his books and rarities! Then he left it all to his boy, Humph, while I starve! Bring me some food and I will return it. Loki hands you a list

25 apple pies
25 Bread Loaves
25 Baked Meat Pies
50 Peaches

Reward: The Last Prophet Scroll
Part three:
Specialty Brew-Regis

Well here you are and here I is, yes i'm veryyy drunk sir, err m'am. Yes drunk. Been drinking since I ran out of that special brew the brewmaster makes. Stuff tastes like Heaven. Get me MORE and i'll tell you where I hid Dawns Book of Verse yup yup.
*cross the road and North a bit to the Brewmaster

Reward: A Book of Verse Penned by Dawn
Part four:
Brewmaster Special
50 . 53S 96 . 11E

Ahhh yes the drunk from Yew! I hustled him to the tavern when he ran out of money. Tried to trade me some silly book of poems, said it was valuable. What would I do with a book of poems. So you want another jug of shine for him do ya! Well bring me back some things I will trade you! I need:
5 empty kegs, the ones alchemists normally use for potions would be fine
50 greater Explosion Potions, never mind why
Your job is just to bring them to me

Reward: Pitcher of Special Brew-Return to Regis
Part five:
A Pretty Painting-Uncle Robert
61 . 47S 36 . 4W

My brother's painting? Oh I did not steal it! My wife admired it very much. She was born in Haven you see and very much interested in the city history. My brother gave the painting to her before he passed. She is very fond of it, but you say his son wants the painting returned? Well I suppose I wouldn't object, but if you would, perhaps you can give my wife something in return? When Old Haven was abandoned and overrun with the dead some artifacts were left behind. Find me two artifacts and I will trade you.

*Visit old Haven and recover 2 artifacts. Known at this time, there are soul stone fragments, a weather worn statue, a bell of Haven, and an armoire.

Reward: A Painting of Old Haven
*Return to Jin Vesel in Yew for your finale reward.

Quest can be completed once per day.

Events / UO Evolution – 7th Anniversary in January 2018!

UO Evolution – 7th Anniversary in January!

UO Evolution is excited to announce we are celebrating 7 glorious years Online!

As many of you know we are about to celebrate our 7th year online on the weekend of January 19th-21st. We will have a big reunion with all of our old players. Everyone is invited back to check out the progress and success of UO Evolution.

I want to thank all the players for supporting this UO project over the years and making this a great community.

We will be running special staff events and giving away many unique anniversary prizes and gifts over the weekend.

We are very excited to see a record of 832 players online last month and an avg of 600+ daily! We expect to break our record over the Anniversary by hosting over 1000 players online!

The shard has prospered and has added new content every Friday for the last 7 years, and the player base has at least doubled. The game continues to "evolve" and it is absolutely better than the original game. We have 99% uptime and almost zero crashes since Kane has taken over the scripting. Most of the major systems have been completely rewritten or improved.

Kane and the staff have made over 210+ new shard content updates and we continue run several events daily

We just did another content update, if you would like to follow along with the development of UO Evolution, you can now view the 2017 Development Logs on the wiki

We are the #1 custom era shard for 7 years straight, and we can all be proud of that accomplishment!

This is YOUR shard!

We are committed to running the best custom UO freeshard and are focused on customer service and player satisfaction! If you have had any issues with old staff, banned account or left for any reason, please contact Dante to resolve the issue.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Dante, Zoe, Kane, Domino, Zeus, Archon and Morsax

Important Announcement! "In Danger of Collapse!"
Make sure you log in asap!  We will be doing house drops and account wipes this month to make room for new players.  You must log in to refresh your accounts!

Houses are "IN Danger Of Collapse!"

House Drops - IDOC Event!

We will be hosting a house drop event this month for the 7th Anniversary! Exact dates will be announced!

Houses that are older than one year old, empty plots or have had no log-ins or low player time will be in danger of collapsing!

Random houses will drop all over the shard on all the facets, so scout out and mark the ones likely to fall!  We will also have specific events for all the players at the top of each hour!  Watch for in-game announcements and meet at britain bank for the gates

Thank you for all the support of this project over the past 7 years!
Suggestions / Re: A "Catch-All" Key

this items would potentially ruin the need for all of the other keys including the master.  It would also discourage all the custom key quests.  Nice idea but it would be disruptive

Suggestions / Re: A "Catch-All" Key
« Last post by Sturger on January 08, 2018, 10:03:29 PM »

  This idea is simple and  pure genius.

  I would suggest this be allowed as an account only item, with up to 3 of these blank storage keys--20 slots each. One because your play on Evolution, one for a quest reward, and one because you donated.

  I would also suggest a [House Version] with 50 slots which costs X amount of lockdown spaces, where X is---possibly-- 10 lockdown spaces per storage slot in use.  (that's 500 storage space) This item should also be an account wide house add on. Just because you have 3 or 4 house plots doesn't mean you get 4 of these lovely ideas! Only 1 per account.

  Also, allow the owner to reset the storage slots of this item by destroying it with an axe--like a trash barrel. Doing so deletes anything left within, but allows the owner to create a new house storage device (key) for free 1 time every 30 days. If for some reason a house owner needs/wants to reset this storage device a second time before 30 days is up, charge them gold or ED's. Be gentle with this cost of living though, if it is to rough at first it will fail.

  EX:  Free, 250k tokens, 500k gold, 1.5mil gold, 3mil gold, 5ED's 10 ED's

  Well, there I went and blurted out my mind without checking the details again...


  P.S. I like this idea, but I do not think I will make it, since there are so many keys and quests related to those storage keys. However, I would love a personalize storage key. Great Idea!
Help! / Re: BowCrafting
« Last post by Sturger on January 08, 2018, 09:37:17 PM »

  Also, let me add, that doing the Elven crafting quests [bowyer Elf quest] can gain a nice talisman. This Bow-crafting tally can increase your Bowyer/Fletching skill and the exceptional percentage chance for crafting any item-- in the Bow-crafting field.

  Imagine you get one with 21% exceptional chance... add that to your 50% and with 71% chance you are on your way to something good.

    Let me state that you will have to work at getting a nice one of these talismans. However, luck of the draw has happened, so you never know.

       Good Luck!
