Happy New Year!

Monday, December 31st, 2012

Elizabella and I would like to thank all the players of Great Lakes for making 2012 another amazing year! While this was my fourth year as an Event Moderator and Elizabella’s third, the most important anniversary was Ultima Online’s fifteenth! It was an honor to be part of this historic year.

It was a year of legends. Dupre returned from the Faction Wars to lead the Royal Guard against the demon-machine Exodus. Sherry the Mouse left Britain and traveled across a chaos-wracked kingdom. Other heroes and villains returned, such as Dasha, Adranath, Kabur, Gilforn, Krett, and Hawkwind. Perhaps the most surprising return was that of Lord Blackthorn. After escaping the Ethereal Void, he set about repairing both the Honor Moongate and a fractured Britannia. A reunited Britannia witnessed the coronation of King Blackthorn.

Happy New Year’s and keep your swords sharp for 2013!


Merry Christmas!

Elizabella and I would like to wish you safe and happy holidays! Beware the ghosts of Bucky and Splat, who look for a way back to life and to Sosaria. They may be peering through your window at this moment.


Magnus Grey and Sarah Paumera will see you for the Royal Spy Promotion Ceremony on January 8th.

Zox’s Monthly Fishing Contest! December 2012

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Congratulations to Lord Flipper Flanigan for again having the winning catch! Zox Greatsnapper likes the fish very much and is not at all terrified of it.


For this month of magic and joy, Zox would like a fairy salmon to put on top of her Walrus Festival tree. Fairy salmon frolic in the waters of Ter Mur. It must be caught sometime between December 4th and January 7th. Please leave the fish in the mailbox by January 7th, 11:59 p.m. CST.

If your fish is not the heaviest, you may have it back, if you left a house rune to your mailbox with the fish.
All non-winning fish that are left without return information will be cooked and eaten right up by Zox Greatsnapper and Cidur Klomp.
