Producer Update

Posted by Bonnie Armstrong | 2014 Jun 26 19:48 -0400 GMT

Greetings Everyone,

Since I have not given you guys an update lately I thought I would let everyone know what we are up to and give you some highlights as to what and when you can expect to see new and exciting things in UO! I know we stated that Publish 86 would originally be released in July but we are looking at mid August before we can publish now. Since the shutdown of the Mythic Studio, it has caused us to move the rest of our build machines from that office to the office in Herndon before we were expecting so that has caused a delay in our publish time. This is not an excuse but I wanted to let everyone know some of the things we have been dealing with to cause these delays.

Strange Bedfellows

"You don't actually think this is going to work, do you?" Anon scoffed at King Blackthorn's suggestion.

"Well if you don't think you have the ability to do it, I guess you can continue to be known as the second best mage of the realm..."

Anon slammed a hand down on the table, causing Dupre to give him a glare from his seat. "I still am afraid I don't understand...why are we not simply destroying the source of these?"

"Because we cannot without condemning untold numbers of lives. Anon and I have come to the conclusion that Minax used the shard of the gem of immortality she'd stolen to open up tears in the Ether to another world...a Sosaria conquered by brigands and outlaws. To destroy the connection might destroy one or both of the worlds. Instead...Anon came up with a plan that's somewhat similar to what Nystul once did..."

"It's completely different! We aren't destroying an entire way of life and the source of our strength!"

The King raised his hand and Anon reluctantly went quiet. "Alright. We can cast the spell, but we're going to have to be uninterrupted...and unfortunately, Minax and this...Shanty you told us of will be on the watch now. Anon is the only one of us who can cast it...and I'll need to assist him."

"Shanty's enchanted blade is powerful...it's one of those ancient blades that we'd thought were all lost. I don't have anything that can stand up to it."

The King pulled on a bellpull and Heckles entered, with an object wrapped in cloth. "It took some time, but I was able to find an object in my collection that may be able to help you against him, Sir Dupre."

As Heckles approached, he unwrapped it and held the sheathed blade out to Sir Dupre, and he drew it...to show a brilliantly gleaming black longsword, with magical runes engraved along it's length. The balance was impeccable, and it felt as if it had the perfect weight...He gave a small swing of it's blade, and saw the same motes of magical energy as Shanty's Sharkbite had cast. In a deft motion he sheathed it perfectly, and gave the King a nod.

"Then let us do this for the realm...and for Minax's defeat."

The Mad, Mongbat-Minded Mage

Posted by Bonnie Armstrong | 2013 Nov 12 19:16 -0500 GMT

Written by EM Drosselmeyer

The city had been a nicer place once. It had been busier, filled with bustling life and mages learning and earning their keep amidst masters and grandmasters. But that was many years ago, he reminded himself...and despite the ferocity of those remaining in these lands, so many had already moved on to calmer waters. He'd been warned against going at all by his Royal Guard, with them finally relenting when he agreed to take two with him as protection, but he told them as simply as he understood it himself; If he found who he was looking for and they were intractable, a regiment would likely not be enough.

The gates of wrought iron still stood, and though there were traces of rust, it was no worse off than the rest of the great city. As he passed through, more foreboding signs abounded...there were bodies amidst the streets, and he shook his head...most of them inhuman, monstrous things that should have been in the dungeons of the lands instead of the streets of a city steeped in history. Cracks of lightning and the pull of bowstring could be heard from various directions, but it was when the entire sky seemed to open up with a continuous peal of thundering roars that he knew where he wanted to go.

Minax's Plan

Posted by Bonnie Armstrong | 2013 Oct 30 14:22 -0400 GMT

Author:  EM Drosselmeyer

     The crystal crackled and sputtered in her hands as she poured her considerable magic into it, causing the ground around her to tremble with the power...but soon enough it calmed, and nothing had happened. She had assumed as much might happen...a focal point was needed, and the crystal alone couldn't do it. It needed something stronger, something more powerful...and that was when she thought of the perfect spot. And the best part was, almost nobody was ever there. With a wicked smile adorning her face, she gestured over to Shanty. "Attend me, Shanty; I may have need of your particular brand of persuasion if we run into trouble."

     A dark, guttural chuckle came forth from the slightly heavyset man, as he drew a large cutlass glittering with magical enchantments. "As yer wish, m'lady. Ah live ter serve, yer know...'specially when it mean gettin' ter 'ave a little fun with ol' Sharkbite 'ere." His tone was affectionate as he patted the flat of the blade along one shoulder for emphasis. A wave of her hands and with the chanting of the words of power, a red moongate opened up, and the duo passed through to their destination.

The Character Transfer Issue has been resolved and the warehouse as been turned back on.  You should have any issues with a character transfer unless you began it in Publish 82.  If you log in squelched, frozen and unable to interact with the world please page a GM to fix your character.

Thanks!
