    [​IMG]

    Now this is on Atlantic and I do not ever remember seeing this.
    So i started asking around and it seems like noone has ever seen this....

    My friend Halister knows alot about the Shard History of Atlantic and at one point he just asked ,how about other shards?

    So i went and checked Drach, where i found this:

    [​IMG]

    And Sarsmi was so kind to check Baja for me:

    [​IMG]

    So i am wondering , anyone have any info?

    Cords are:
    56o 57'S 22o 55'E

    Something makes me think that dates back to the Trinsic invasion of 2000. I could be wrong though.

    Then it's probably old. Lake Austin is a newer shard. Confirm by trying Origin?

    If it's new, wonder if "her" refers to Sherry The Mouse.

    Just thinking aloud.

    None on oceania (also checked trammel). However considering the messages are different on shards that leads me to believe that it is part of an EM event and not a shard wide one (EM's would put slight variation but still stick to the same location). Both notes refer to "her" and there is also reference to a structure. Her I would hazard a guess at being Sherry the mouse if it was new.

    However I am almost certain after further analysis that this is an old event. You can tell this by the style of the scrolls written i.e whole text doesn't fit on the cursor, they don't do that these days :sad4:.
     
  12. My first thought was something to do with Sherry the Mouse as well.

    This could be old, but it would have had to have been between 2003 and 2005. I know I would have seen that considering I, and several guildmates, owned many houses in that area at that time.

    I took the 'her' reference to mean Malabelle or Minax. No structure on LA would seem to add weight to the Trinsic invasion theory.

    Agree. It's definitely not new.
     
  17. Perhaps Casca is planning to do away with my sister, Abigail?

    She is the true heir to the throne, and he knows it!! :D

    However I think this pre-dates the Trinny invasion because Oceania was around for that (albeit Oceania was opened the day AFTER the Trinny invasion begun but we have most things from it).

    then why does noone remember this ?


    Everyone i have asked so far has never noticed it and just the end of last year Andrasta and i where walking all over Felucca marking runes to add to the library...

    Its right on the road so surly it would have been noticed?
    If it was a shardwide Event someone would remember?

    Or do we have some poor NPC girl stuck in some godforsaken Dungen for the past 7 years??
     
  20. Chained in a crawl space in Rico's house no doubt! :D

    Not on Siege, Lake Austin, or Oceania definitely implies it's old. Very old! My money's on it not being on Origin either.

    I think it was created between July 15, 1999 (when Seige opened, although Seige doesn't have a note means it could be made before Seige was opened) and January 27, 2000 (when Oceania opened). That is quite a while ago.
     
  25. No way! Absolutely no way!

    I would have seen this! My old house was on the beach like 4-5 screens from there.

    The Trinsic invasion popped into my head as soon as I saw the picture. Unless I am demented that's when its from.

    Anybody else notice on some of them there is some cut off text on the next "line" which you can't make out? That totally proves it's old (if you use item ID on it you can read the full text)

    It's really really old. This is fact. I've been running past that thing since around 2000 on pac and atl.

    I also vote for the Minax invasion of 2000.

    My guess:

    "Her" is Malabelle who was initially on Minax's side but was later imprisoned by Minax and freed by Dupre.
    The "gazer" is the golden gazer who was leading the assault of Minax's armies on Cove.
    The "purple friend" I don't know...

    The note in the hut was probably a clue for the event when Dupre led the citizens of Britannia to free Malabelle.

    Actually, it's not right on the road and, at least on Sonoma, it doesn't show up on the radar. It would be very easy to miss.

    Also on Sonoma we have no scroll but instead a blue scale which says when you mouse over it; "Scales... The Base Looks Slightly Dented As If Dropped"

    The Purple Friend is almost certainly "Barney" the purple dragon. He pre-dates the 2000 invasion. But the reference here would explain why he's not been heard from in so many years.

    Been there for years.. on Pacific/Fel as well.

    Also others if you follow the road all the way to Trinsic.. Dupre's battle encampment or somthing.. brambles covering the whole road.. small fires.. bloodstains.. and eventually "Nystul's Gate" which takes you to the Brit docks and was the old 'escape' from the Jou'Nar Trinsic invasion.

    So that makes it old seer stuff that never got deleted..
     
  39. If I recall correctly there was something like that in Trammel on the peninsula below Destard. It's been a long time since i have been there though.

    Yes, it is from the events leading up to the battle for Trinsic. I seem to recall Malabelle was imprisoned there temporarily by Minax, but it has been 9+ years so my memory is sketchy at best. I tried to use the UO archives again but they've totally screwed it up.

    Chrissay & co, you REALLY should pull off the old BNNs and town crier articles and make them searchable for us please. Better yet, revamp the blasted site and fix all the bad links. It really is unacceptable that we can't look through our history to see what happened when.

    Anyway, the text is different on the note because each shard had its own Seers, who would tailor it slightly for each shard.

    It was a fun event if I remember right, lots of running around and clues to the next steps with battles as needed to keep us on our toes.

    I want to say it was 1999, but it probably was early 2000. Definitely before the other shards were born.
     
  42. I talked to someone in my guild, and he told me that this thing has been there for a very long time (since like 99-00).

    Somehow I missed this for years.

    Oh well...I suck. :D
