    I've been hearing that they're going to remove the quest to get into the shipwreck, and possibly the shipwreck itself, or at least parts. Anyone else heard anything like that?

    Seems like Jhelom is invaded on Ches. And I heard another town. But maybe that's just EM events.

    Hmmm, not heard that at all :( .. One of the Devs (Kyronix I think) said that the majority of stuff they were adding during this arc would be permanent though. :confused:

    Can't wait for the invasions.... *says silent prayer to da UO God's to please let Luna participate in the invasions*

    Yeah, that's what Ithought was said. I'm just thinking there was some misunderstanding or something with what I've been hearing.

    haha. I'll go wherever has the toughest invading force. I just hope my connection doesn't crap out on me. It tends to do that a lot...

    I believe one of the Devs came on here and said it was a perm addition.

    It could be. This is based on Ultima V - in the game, the Shadowlords would appear in a random town (but I think it only applied to the towns in Britannia), and they were manipulating Blackthorn. I doubt that's where the story will go here, but it's always possible.

    And the only way to kill them (at the beginning) was Glass Swords. I would have loved to off seen something like that implemented.

    You have to get volcanic glass (aka obsidian) and someone with blacksmith/glassblowing then crafts it into weapons you need to kill the shadowlords.

    I think that could really be fleshed out and made awesome.

    Anytime you want me as a dev or story EA, my email is [email protected] .... just sayin. :D

    Without trying to look it up, I want say there was a way to tell which city they were attacking or were about to attack.

    I remember getting like 9 glass swords (you could get your party number + 1) and going out and hunting them to kill them off.

    Yup. From the Ultima wiki:

    "In Ultima V, each Shadowlord will attack, from time to time, each of the eight cities of virtue. They arrive at a town and stay there for one day. When they arrive, the player is informed with a message saying that an "air" of hatred/falsehood/cowardice surrounds them. While in the city, the Shadowlords will affect the behaviour of the citizens: Astaroth will make them violent; Faulinei will make them liars; Nosfentor will make them fearful and thieves. The player may also run into the Shadowlord, who will transport them to an alternate dimension, where he must be defeated or driven off in order for the player to survive. Between 12:00 and 1:00 at night, a Shadowlord can't move"
