The Lost King

By: EM Malachi

There was a ruby for each drop of Wolfgang’s blood.

The wealthy and powerful of Akalabeth had always prized rubies. It was custom at a king's funeral for mourners to place a ruby on the casket. Some in the pile were brilliant lozenge cuts, fit for jewelry and crowns; others were raw and unpolished, directly from the mines. As both a great mage and a benevolent ruler, Wolfgang had been much respected, and even those of humble means wished to pay homage to their king.

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

Posted by Bonnie Armstrong | 2013 Nov 21 21:36 -0500 GMT

By: EM Drosselmeyer

"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'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 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."
