Happy New Year!


Elizabella and I would like to thank all the players of Great Lakes for making 2017 an amazing year!

Together, we all celebrated the 20th anniversary of Ultima Online. The arc remembered the past, with the return of beloved characters, including Sherry, Dupre, and Mariah. It also looked to the future, hinting at enemies still unseen with the invasion from Pagan.

On Great Lakes, this was the year of the Nemesis, the shadow opposite of each of you. We wanted an arc that would complement the anniversary global, so we wrote to a theme of individual adversity strengthening the parts of the whole. Conflicts on the streets of Britain and in a rural Cove court gave you the strength to stand on the Plane of the Shattered Obelisk and bind the Titans.

Elizabella and I wish all of you a Happy New Year’s! Keep your swords sharp for 2018!
