    $14.99 for the booster ... half the price of an expansion.

    Reasonable?

    Lol! A pirate on the high seas booster pack. It`s so UO... Going to love this. And theres things there for everyone. Not sure I liked the legendary fisher though, thought I was all done. But I logged on just so I could pull my alacrity fishing scrolls off the vendor. No one gets those now. All mine!

    What a lot of work and for a small price with something for almost everyone.

    Well played Mythic!

    I can't wait to get my grubby pirate hands on the damn thing!

    1499 is cheap its a expansion in itself looks great and i imagine it will start to be released this fall but some of it is pre alpha so it would be very late fall i think maybe it was next fall not sure kinda vague

    Didn't look like it... Looks like it's still going to be relegated to land and boats, just with a bit more inetractivity.

    It sounds great! I have questions already!

    1. By purchasing the booster, what content do we get access to? Will we still be able to access the regular Britannian ships we already have? Or will this change?

    2. Will ships still be refreshed in the same manner?

    3. If your ships are parked off the coast of your RP towns, can they be attacked and destroyed by, say, water elementals that turn up out there? Or will all these changes encourage us to dry dock our ships?

    4. In the old Ultima Games, there were a few locales which were notable for ship adventures. In Ultima 4, one had to sail out and find Buccaneer's Den, Magincia, and Avatar Island. What's more, there was a huge pirate cove on Avatar Island. Lock Lake also had their fair share of pirates which provided a means to sail to Cove. Will these locales get some love in the booster?

    5. Any chance we'll be able to sail from Britannia to Tokuno similar to how it was handled for the Lost Lands?

    This looks pretty awesome. I hope they pull it off as well as they did SA. Recipes were mentioned I think. I'd like to know more about that.

    - Very interesting stuff.

    - Can we make known cheaters of UO walk the plank and get gobbled up by a sea monster? This, of course, causing all of that account's possessions to be forever lost in Davy Jones' locker...
