2020 AOV Christmas Event: Shields Down (December 5, 2020 - January 23, 2021)

The evil elves are back, and have taken over Santa's village once more. During renovations, evil ninja elves have slipped through, and have managed to use the village's magic to continuously pour in through portals. We could build a bigger wall and make them pay for it, but they would still be able to come in. So instead we will build a shield, it's going to be yuge, we built one before last year, and it was successful, so we will build one even bigger! But we need your help!

Clean Coal(tm) powered shield generators have been installed in 3 locations to block these portals, but there are not enough elves to keep them fuelled all the time. Your help is needed to do this. They appear as follows:





How to fuel a shield generator: To fuel a shield generator you simply place coal, or cast fire spells on it. Double click coal to light, it will also eventually catch on nearby coal. Several piles of coal can be placed around to maximize the speed at which power level increases. Coal drops on the floor and from dark elves. It can also be obtained by mining anywhere in Sosaria.

Example of fuel generator that is fueled by coal being placed around it:


Double clicking it will tell you it's status. There are 3 major modes for these generators:

Offline: No protection provided. Dark elves continue to arrive. Double clicking will show you the current power vs the power required to turn on.

Online: Dark elves have more trouble entering, but can still enter. Continue to add fuel. Double clicking will show you the current power vs the full power potential.

Full power: When this point is reached, all evil elves are instantly killed and no longer arrive. Good elves will slowly start to spawn. Good elves may fight any bad elves that happen to remain.

Note: These shield generators emit radiation which is known to the facet of trammel to cause health decrease and in some cases, death. Ask your doctor if the job of fueling these is right for you. The coal workers association guarantees that clean coal is in fact a safe method of powering these and does not contribute to any harmful emissions resulting in global warming or mercury poisoning.

When the coal runs out, the power level of the shield generator slowly drops, at some point the good elves will stop spawning, and bad ones will start to return. Shield generator #3 is a special case where it has no control over evil elves, however once brought to full power it will provide surprise stockings throughout the village.

As well as evil elves, some sith lords whose ship has crashed have also decided to establish themselves in the NSA errr Claus Surveillance Centre. This has prevented Santa from checking to see if people are being naughty or not. It is also where shield generator #3 is, so it may prove difficult to enter until shield #2 is activated at full power.

Lastly, there has been a coronavirus outbreak in santa's village, and we strongly recommend you distance yourself from it. It does not discriminate, and kills all! Good luck.

Few last notes:

- To enter event, there are white gates throughout the world with title "Shields down!"

- There is a quest right at the entrance, it's worth grabbing it if you want some quick Christmas decoration.

- Due to mechanics of spawners and their sleep mode, allow 5ish minutes for good elves and surprise stockings to spawn the first time the cores are brought to 100%. Once stuff starts to spawn, the spawners will speed up. They are all set to spawn a new mobile/object within 30 seconds to 3 minutes.

- Difficulty may be a bit on the hard side due to amount of spawn, a stealther may be useful to get the generators going. Lit coal will also damage mobs, be creative. Wink

This seems neat and all but I'm already failing at keeping up with RL right now, don't need to add a UO job on top of everything. Sad

If anyone does this and needs coal though I might be able to help, just need to reinstall UO and whatnot.

Has anyone ever posted a map or more screenshots of this?
Searched but didn't find anything. I have only been able to find one of the shield generators. (#1)

Oh wait, found #2 now. Don't know that I could find my way back to #1 tho

Edit: Update, found and powered all 3 generators but don't think I can really keep any of it going by myself. Am also lost and not sure how to get back out of here.

Aaaand, I'm out. Never got it to spawn anything though. Sad

Oh yeah it takes a bit of time to get going but once you have all 3 going you would see stuff start to spawn, would need to give it a good 10 minutes or so.

Also a tip: The Coronavirus will attack everything, good or bad. May potentially be usable. Discord might work on it.

Just a reminder that this event is still going and will end some time this Sunday.
