    Ok, those in the know, can anyone tell me how long is 10 fold days? I was just in luna bank and witnessed a yellow health bar char named Lord Owain warning all to be weary of the "robed ones"...

    Hmmmm...obviously our EM has made an appearance. Anyone care to help decipher this?

    I read 10 times 10 Fold Days the warning he gave earlier. But thats like 100 days!
    Perhaps Ultima days are quicker than real life days.
    *smells an event coming soon!* :D

    Here is how UO time works if you were interested.

    Here are some facts relating to time in Ultima Online:

    Time in Britannia passes quickly compared to our Earth time.
    In 2 Earth hours an entire Britannian day will have passed.
    Twelve Britannian days makes one Earth day.
    Just as on Earth, a Britannian year has twelve months.
    Each Britannian month, however, consists of 73 days.
    This makes a Britannian year last 876 Britannian days, which is 73 Earth days.
    One Earth year equals five Britannian years.
    The release date of Ultima Online was in the Britannian year 289.

    So, if my math is correct, sometime after 7-8 days we should see some new material, if this Owain is correct??

    Good. Two years too late. And just about the time my subscription will run out. Wonderful. Great. Maybe we'll find out about Frederick or whatever that thieves name was. Maybe the Golden White Candle of Lust will finally get a use? Maybe....just maybe....someone will get an event item that will make them rich? Hopefully the cloaks of constipation will be revealed to be the key to entering a place where the planeswords and shields, when waved over ophidian orders, will open a portal that allows you to travel anywhere in the lands without the client crashing? If we're lucky....a new and more powerful tameable will be introduced? We need one. How many years has it been since we got a new tameable? I think it's only fair to the tamers as my warrior has gotten several new weapons in the last eight years. This is an exciting time! I can't wait to hear about it!

    Ah....that felt good. Like taking a big dump on a hot day!

    Now....what's going on in Luna?

    Thank you, Giggles.

    There is an old art to venting one's spleen. It's good for the colon....and anything good for the colon is ultimately good for the soul. All the irritation left my body after writing (what many are calling a modern masterpiece) that post.

    I took a long vacation from UO. Gave my account away...and started fresh about a month ago. I'm just not having fun. Which bothers me....because I used to. I enjoy playing alone. It's not that I hate my fellow players....I just enjoy hunting without having to talk to someone. Well...I've hunted everything. I built a fortune once. Owned a castle. soloed a peerless. Was a murderer. Never played a tamer or a crafter because the repetition would make me crazy. Switched my templates constantly. But now...well... I guess it's time to do something else a few hours a week? I don't begrudge anyone for playing....it just doesn't interest me anymore.

    I remember seeing it mentioned somewhere that blackrock was going to reemerge as an in game item of use again... could this warning of "robed ones" be refering to the collectors from the blackrock event?? Hmm...

    A buncha event armor and some stuff I'm giving back to the guy who bought my account is about all I got. I did manage to get some spellbooks that are decent. People can have those if they want?
