Stephen Emond is already working on the follow-up to his wildly successful book, Ultima: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide: Ultima Online: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide. And to promote and celebrate the book, he has launched a contest on Facebook challenging Ultima fans to “fill in the blanks” so to speak, and report any glaring omissions from Ultima: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide.
Here’s the details:
Participation is easy, just “fill in the blanks”. Compiling pictures and detailed information on more than 2000 items was a challenge (as you can imagine), particularly since most of them are quite rare. As such there is still a lot of information left to uncover, or items which fell through the cracks
SI Completion Certificate …
Additions, updates, and corrections can be about any item listed (or not listed) in “Ultima: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide” – for either the main series or Ultima Online (including the media guide). All submissions will not only help to preserve the Ultima legacy, but also get your names listed as contributors in the next book.
All you need to do is send missing items, pictures and/or information (UPC/EAN codes, page counts, dimensions, etc) to me at: cmdrfalcon [at] hotmail.com
How to play:
1st Prize (x1) – Copies of “Ultima Online: TUCG 2013 Edition” AND “Ultima: TUCG 2013 Companion”
2nd Prize (x2) – A copy of “Ultima Online: TUCG 2013 Edition”
3rd Prize (x3) – A copy of “Ultima: TUCG 2013 Companion”
Rules & Regulations:
The contest will run from February 25th, 2012 until July 25th, 2012.
The 1st Prize will be awarded to the contributor with the most submissions. Subsequent prizes will be awarded to other submitters based on a random drawing. Winning a prize precludes the contributor from winning subsequent prizes (i.e. the recipient of the 1st Prize cannot also win a 2nd or 3rd prize).
Multiple submissions increases the odds of winning (i.e. 5 contributions = 5 entries into the random draw). That doesn’t require one email for each piece of information. Appropriate credit will be given based on the information provided.
Credit for information will only be given to the first person who submits said information and is subject to verification.
All entrants must provide their full name and email address. Shipping address will also be required if selected as a winner. Winners will be announced prior to pre-orders (approximately July 31, 2012). Prizes will be distributed after the pre-order phase, and before regular release (approximately September 13, 2012).
So if you want a chance to win a copy of the upcoming UO Collector’s Guide, Dragons and Dragonettes, haul out your copies of Ultima: The Ultimate Collector’s Guide and let Stephen Emond know if he missed anything (and send him a picture of it while you’re at it).
The First Age of Update: In a subsequent post at the UDIC Facebook page, Stephen Emond has made a further request:
Specific requests for the UO book… I’m looking for pictures of the following if any of you happen to have them. You will of course get credit and entry into the “Quest for Knowledge” contest to win a copy of the book:
UO The Second Age – Beta CD
UO Lord Blackthorn’s Revenge – Beta CD
UO Age of Shadows – Beta CD
So if, Dragons and Dragonettes, you have any of these things laying about, let him know!
