On three occasions in the past, Mythic created special items that it gave to customers who attended so-called “roundtable” events. The items could be placed in houses in the game, but the events took place in the real world. You had to travel in real life to the cities where these events took place to obtain the items.
It was impossible and still is impossible to get these items by playing the game.
In my view, these trophies were marketing gimmicks, not legitimate parts of the game, and for years I refused to list them on this website. However, people keep writing to me asking about them, so I’m posting pictures of the items on this page.
A few years after I published this page, somebody wrote and asked, “Why do you say these items aren’t legitimate parts of the game? I don’t understand.”
Because it has always been impossible to obtain these items by playing the game.
Look, Prugor’s trophy is part of the game because to get it, you travel in the game to Vale of Mularn which is in the game where your in-game character kills a mob in the game. But to get the gargoyle roundtable item, your physical body which was not in the game had to climb into an airplane which was not in the game and fly to Las Vegas which was not in the game where you talked to Mythic employees who were not in the game.
Update: In April 2010, Mythic started giving away the 2006 Las Vegas item to players as compensation for a billing error. As a result, thousands of these items came into existence on the live servers. Getting overcharged by Mythic didn’t happen in the game ‒ it was a real-life overcharge that caused many people to go over their limits on their credit cards, causing other payments to fail and damaging their credit ratings ‒ so this item still isn’t part of the game.
Many thanks to Skorpio of Pellinor for bringing two of these items to my attention.
