Oh My Santa Expo!!
A person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.

Apologies to all as December is always a hectic month for me, with birthdays, holidays and everything in between, it's been tough to find time to add the rest of the features. I had to disable some of the monsters to get an issue I found with them fixed first. All I can really say is Soon™. In the meantime, everyone enjoy your holidays!

Expo, it is fully understandable.  Hopefully, when the event is over with, it is a reusable script/setting, so its easier to set up and run next year. Just run the event until mid January to end of January.  Most ppl ingame cant make it to the events either, because of Holidays as well, so that would help them also (as well?).  =)

What a Huge fail on this event half the stuff never dropped, half never spawned , still no vendor to use letters , now just shut down completely ,and last word from expo is he has no time, So I don't understand why start something that's not working right and promise to add more then just bail on it , Is that where our donation money is going ? just to add content that you have no time for? What a waste
In Expo's defense, he has run this fun event successfully for the past 3 years.  He tried to add some new twists that did not work out as planned.  We are making adjustments and testing asap.  Im not understanding how you can think this is a "fail"?  We add new content each week for the past 4 years and do are best to entertain you...better than any other shard that I know of:)

Donation money as nothing to do with it, gm's are doing all this and are not getting paid, in all the years i have been here this is the first time something like this happened so be patient, he will get to it when he can. Nothing is lost, just delayed.

 @ Stee7ers

  When was the last time you were perfect? Started something, and it just failed? Did you give up on it; like you are giving up on Expo. One man, of many, donating his time for you, for free, and a server he loves. Did you pay him to create the Santa's Workshop dungeon? Cause the last I heard all the donation money, for the EVO free shard, goes towards server upkeep, upgrades, and advertisement. That means all the staff members, like Expo, working on the shard donate their time for 0$.  :o

  I can't believe that during a time when everyone else is cheerful and giving, you are acting in a way that reminds me of some one spoiled. Let me be the first to tell you, that this shard is about family, fun, and forward thinking. EVOLUTION! We evolve here.

That being said, keep your negativity to yourself. Expo is one of our EVO super hero's 365 days out of the year; so he can have a week off during the holidays... and your going to like it. Quietly.


  --Sturger--


  P.S. Happy Holidays EVO Staff... your the best. {Yes I'm still around}  8)

Yes, sorry everyone for the delays.  Expo has been busy at his job and personal life and intends to get his event working properly.  There were a few glitches that are being worked out, we will have it back up in time for Christmas!

Santa's Workshop re-opens today with some changes! Various issues were fixed. Vendors will be up later tonight (after I get back from work).

I do appreciate the folks that have replied for me. Really couldn't say it better myself. This is always a busy month for me but who cares? Festivities come first! Enjoy!

Im pretty mad right now, have been for 2 days, but i will TRY to sound/be as nice as possible.


Thorgal, this is not aimed at you, but I wont call the asshat out, just sit back and laugh with the others.



This is UO for starters, UO is NOT an "gimme now/yesterday" content whore that WOW, Diablo, etc are. 


Secondly, this server is too wonderful, for...nm, Evo is a private server that Dante envisioned & pursued to create and share with others.  Everyone of the staff(Unsure about Kane, sorry) donates their time. In case you missed it: The Staff DONATES THEIR f#$%I$Ng TIME, to share their joy/pleasure with us. It doesnt matter if this is their first "stumble" or not, (tho, as others pointed out, this is the 1st time It has happened), get the hell over your selfishness, either join our joy and humble life with those who share it with us...or


GET THE FUCK OUT!!


`a really pissed off Sage


Sorry Dante, Im tired of ppl acting like the world revolves around them (seems a popular mentality now-a-days), and your too nice.  *LOVES THE EVO CREW*

All the prizes have been added (minus the Talisman). The prices of the items are subject to change at any time but no refunds will be given out. Just a heads up since I can't keep track of purchases (yet). Enjoy!

Looks great - thank you.


Are the vendors in the workshop or your event hall? Also has the quest been put in that uses the letters to Santa? Last question what is the currency for the items?

The vendors are in Moongate -> Custom Areas -> Expo's Event Hall. The currency to purchase the prizes are the Letters to Santa that you find in Santa's Workshop.
