Useful Resource

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

I wanted to pass on a useful resource that some of your fellow players have started. Based on the in-game Library of Sosaria, this wiki keeps track of important Ultima Online and Great Lakes books and plot information, including EM events:

Stratos, Lithos, and the Missing Plan? *UPDATED*

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

What should the Royal Spies do about the Elemental Titans?

There is now a rune at the small house next to the Britain Counselor’s Hall to the entrance of Xenve An-amo-lem. To get in, stand on the net and say “un or us.”

The Skull…

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

The Skull of Mondain will speak to those willing to listen and act on its behalf. It still rests in the Void Shadow Dungeon which can be entered at 18o33’N 60o11’W in Ilshenar near the ancient stone.

(The teleporter has been fixed to the room with the skull. It is around the stone there and no longer requires any word for entry. The Skull’s goals can be learned with the words “desires” or “wishes.”)

Ice Fishing, Saturday, Feb. 20, at 3 p.m. CST

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

*you feel something tug at your robe*
A small green creature has wrapped its little hand around your hem and is pulling insistently. It says, “Aarp! I goes ice fishing! You comes too, yerg?”

3 p.m. CST      Meet at the Shrine of Honesty if you’d like to sail on or alongside the main ship.

5 p.m. CST      Weigh-in at the Shrine of Honesty

There will be a gate from the Counselors’ Hall to Dagger Isle (AKA Ice Island).

You can be a passenger aboard the main ship or sail alongside it. It will encounter strange creatures, good and bad. It will also have a healer aboard. If you like, you may sail your own ship elsewhere and meet us for weigh-in.

Please bring your largest fish, caught during or prior to this event (it must not be mounted), to the weigh-in. If it does not win, you may have it back. Please keep all boots and thigh boots you fish up during the event and bring those to the weigh-in as well.
