    Happy Birthday UO and may you have many more. I just wish other people would realize what a great game you are even if you do look your age. I have always heard its not how you look that matters but what you have inside, and UO is the best.

    Happy birthday, Ultima Online!

    While I've only played 10 years and 9 months, it has been a lot of fun. UO really has grown into a world. What is the line from the original game intro? "Shattered into a hundred different worlds, each with its own people, history, and destiny."

    Happy Birthday UO.

    But I think it's the only birthday I remember that's not been marked in any way by EA. No cake in the bank box, not even a mention on the log in screen. I'm feeling a bit sad about that right now.

    I know I thought we would at least get a cake. I was upset when I logged on and saw nothing.

    I made a few boxes and engraved them with a cake and a new plant in them and laid them down at the bank lol.

    Happy 11 Years, UO!!

    My wife and I have played since August of 1997, and we still love the game!!

    Like Petra, I too was a little saddened by the fact that even with the heads up on the boards by THP, and others, in the previous week or two, not even an acknowledgment of this milestone (every year for UO, at this point, is a big milestone, IMO) on the log in page.

    But still, we have had years and years of fun, playing the longest running MMORPG in existence!!

    :hug:

    11 years?! Amazing! I remember where I was on this night 11 years ago...running through the Yew forest with my guildies that I had met during beta. There was just something exciting about it being "live".

    Happy birthday Ultima Online! And thank you to Richard "Lord British" Garriott and all the folks who have shared his vision.

    I was born a poor tailor on Magincia. It took almost a year before I could afford to start training in magic. That was 10 years, 10 months ago. Thank you to all those that have given me such wonderful adventures, from the Devs to the GMs to dear friends, some long gone from both worlds. *raises a glass of ale* Salute!
