    Andrew smiled.

    They came one after another, seemingly endless, utterly unbidden and yet so... utterly welcome.

    There was a pause now, though, a break in the unending visits to his domain, and Andrew stretched out his awareness. He reached out, encompassing the slick, glassy tiles marking the boundaries of his small world. He followed the light of his candles as they shone into the darkness. Then the inevitable collision. The Ethereal Void.

    His mind reeled at the sheer power and energies playing on the borders of his creation. Yet his paradise had been... despoiled. His masters had warned him, bidding him be patient, to seek first the corruptness lurking in the unwary. To reward them. To mark them.

    He obeyed.

    Yes, Andrew thought, he obeyed the shadows, and they rewarded him in kind. Immortality, intelligence, and power. His. It was with these abilities he found himself overcoming the sheer chaos that was the Void. There was a crack; a tear - a wrongness.

    A wrongness that he knew was perfectly right. His masters had succeeded. They had found another world to consume. Now all he had to do was follow and join his brethren in service. Soon.

    With a flash another hapless mortal appeared before him, frozen, completely trapped. Andrew shuffled the deck of tarot cards laid across his desk. The panicked fool was screaming thoughts inside his head, unable to speak aloud, yet Andrew heard every word.

    He didn't know where this "Moonglow" was, but understood that soon enough it would be but one of many places where he showed himself. For now, it would serve well enough as an entrance to his realm.

    "Ah, another one," he began.
  2. Yeay. Now I finally understand what is happening with this man, Andrew. Thank you Larisa.

    I stumbled onto the Moonglow Lightning by pure chance last night. I decided to see if anyone was still fighting in the rift but found the lightning instead. Feeling like a glutton for pushiment, I stepped into the lightning, expecting death, but found... something related to the story line.

    I must admit my pulse quickened because I found this "on my own". Reading about it on the boards would have killed that feeling. This find reminded me of playing the older Ultimas where you couldn't simply Google an answer most gameplay. That challenging environment is really what made Ultima so fun.

    On a side note, I wish there was an in-game interface that could share (or hint) this information rather than having to search online for it. I feel like I am getting too much information sometimes from Stratics postings.

    Alright. So now that I'm marked as being on the side of the shadowlords, what happens now? Do the Vanguards leave me alone? Will the Cloaks and Threads have a different use than if I went the other way? Who do I use the glass dagger on, the good guys or the bad guys? Am I a bad guy now? Publish 53 awaits...

  4. You don't really want the Devs to give you these answers, do you? What would be the fun in it? The enjoyment in Life and UO is the journey, not necessarily the destination.

    Oh no, I'm totally fine with waiting. That was just me saying, "Tune in next time for the answers to these questions and more. Same UO time, same UO channel."
    I am really excited to see what happens next. I actually have been having a good time with this event.:)
