“Minister Grey?”

Magnus looked up from his desk, past the stacks of papers, at Sarah Paumera. He noticed that she was bundled up for the snowy Britain streets. “What can I help you with?”

“James and I were going to meet a few other civil servants at the Cat’s Lair for drinks to celebrate the new year, if you’re interested.”

“I need to review a few reports and file these commendations. I want to finish this year’s paperwork before I start the next one.”

“I understand. Happy New Year, Magnus.”

“Happy New Year, Sarah.” Magnus looked back to his paperwork as the other spy left. He noticed the candle on his desk was burning low, so he lit a fresh candle from the dying wick.

“Got to keep the light going.”

Elizabella and I would like to thank all the players of Great Lakes for making 2016 another wonderful year!

The theme this year was making decisions and living with the consequences. You saved Balema from AtoGau the Worldeater, you brokered a treaty with Nujel’m, and you nailed Unthar the First Lich back into his coffin.

In 2017, I will begin my ninth year of EMing and Elizabella her eighth. More importantly, Ultima Online will have its 20th anniversary! It is an amazing milestone for an MMO. Let’s celebrate our beloved game in the coming year. Keep an eye on this page and the UO Herald for news and events.

We wish all of you a Happy New Year’s! Keep your swords sharp for 2017!

Ring Quest

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Recover the Ring of Order to stop the Sorceress Lise from using the Ring of Chaos to destroy Sosaria, as Balema was destroyed.

To begin, speak with the Ghost of King Galt in Balema and listen to his words carefully. He will send you to search Balema and Trammel for clues to the final location of the Ring of Order.

Your strength and cleverness will be tested! Good luck, valiant soul!

Notes:

-A Gate to Balema can be found in the Royal Spy Headquarters and at Stonegate (which is north of Minoc).

All locations mentioned in clues will be found in Trammel or Balema. All Balema sites can be accessed by strange magics (EM teleporters).

-You may need to travel into the darkest Trammel dungeons to find what you are looking for. Sparkles, healer wisps, and strange pieces of Balema stone may indicate you are close to your location.

Not all enemies can be defeated. Some conflicts should be avoided.

-When the Ring of Order is found, it should be left in the Award Hall mailbox, which can be reached by going through the gate next to the Counselor Hall

-Completing this important mission will be recognized by the honor of The Most Ancient Order of the Trail.

-This quest must be completed by Monday at 11:59 PM CDT.
