    Hey Gang!

    Allow me a moment of your time to introduce myself. My name is Stephen, and I just joined the Ultima Online team a fraction of a second ago, or rather just recently.

    I started playing Ultima Online at launch because a close friend of mine convinced me it was like Diablo but with a lot more people to kill, er… I mean play with. Well, I loaded it up and realized it was a whole lot better than I expected. I immediately got hooked. I spent a brief moment on Atlantic initially, then moved over to Baja when it came up. After my few year stint there, I re-rolled on Chesapeake, then when transfers were enabled, I moved over to Atlantic again. I’ve tried to do everything I could in the game. I mined, crafted, adventured, cooked(yes I did this), stole, traded, killed, died, etc… and yet I feel like there is still so much more to do after 11+ years. I still have to work up my begging skill!

    I was hired here at Mythic two years ago on the support side of things. In other words, yes, I was a Game Master. I worked my way up to become one of the Lead Supervisory GM’s as well as the GM Trainer. It was an amazing experience over there that I’ll never forget and I’m grateful for having it to see what it’s like on the other side.

    Looking back on everything, I would never have thought that my game playing as a teenager would evolve into actually being a part of the production of my favorite MMO. I’ve gone from being a player, to supporting the game I love, to now being part of it’s future. It’s been quite a ride, and I’m looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts! Reminiscing about UO is a hobby of mine that I hope to share with all of you.

    Take care!

    -Stephen “Kaenji” Worland

    It's good to hear from you. I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.

    Hi Stephen,

    Why was your post from last week deleted?

    Also, what part of the UO team are you working with now?

    There was an error with the Herald and it accidentally flashed his introduction before it was ready.

    Aye, welcome to the boards. Good to hear another long time player has worked his way up to work on the game. Experience on both sides can only be a good thing.

    And what great outstanding results this had. Heckuvajob there Kaenji. Come meet me ingame and I will give you a shiny medal...

    ...oh right, no such thing as ingame GMs who actually do stuff instead of sending a message linking to the EA knowledge base which has everything but knowledge in it.

    Congratulations Stephen!

    It's great having someone who's a player of the game be part of the actual "behind-the-scenes". You know where we're coming from because you've been there. That's a plus for everyone.

    Good luck, and once again, great job on making the team. Oh yes, on a side note, may we get Undergarment Dye Tubs with pattern changing abilities? I'd like to get my leopard skin boxer groove going on, and if I'm running through a dungeon in my skinnies, I might as well look good doing it. :D

    Yeah, I could've said "balance this and that", but I've been putting in for Undergarment Dye Tubs since forever and a day. That's my shameless plug for this thread. D'OH.

    Okay, okay. How about tiger-striped boxer brief groove? Not only can we kill greater dragons in style, but we can do it with sex appeal, too!?!? :D
