    Someone from EA, when you have a moment, please confirm the following.

    The name of the overall event cycle is Warriors of Destiny. In this event cycle,

    The Prologue of Warriors of Destiny was, basically, the Inu the Crone events, all of which are now seen as leading up to this. This was a pretty long Prologue, during which things happened, such as the Ophidian War and the attacks on the Shrines of Love, that were of undeniable importance.....But at the end of the day it was all really a foreshadow.

    Chapter 1 was The Invasion of Magincia. This event featured demonic entities, presumably affiliated with or under the direction of the Shadowlords, physically destroying the City of Magincia.

    Chapter 2 was Mad Mage. This event involved Kronos's Blackrock detector finally being built. Due, at least in part, to sabotage from behind the scenes, instead of doing what it was supposed to do, it tore a hole in the fabric of reality, to the Ethereal Void. The Shadowlords and their minions then simply entered the Void, and, from there, entered Britannia.

    Chapter 3, which is currently in effect, is The War of Shadows. In this event, the Shadowlords and their minions, now in Britannia proper, physically attack the cities. The structure of the realm as we know it will change, possibly forever.

    After this is as of yet unknown.

    This right, J., or D., or whomever?

    Ah finally! A post about something we really want to talk about...UO!!

    My understanding is things will "ramp up" considerably this week. With some further clarification on where we are stage wise and where we are going, it is sure to be an adventure for all *grins*

    Shame no one replied verifying or clarifying this. I didn't know the ophidian or shrine events (ie. book of truth) were precursors for this. Thanks for the heads up. I have never been able to follow the story lines because I just must not know where they are posted. I find bits and pieces, but never much of the story and would love to go back and actually read it all from the start if anyone knows where it is located all in one lump for ease of perusal.

    Shrines? Definitely. Remember that the guiding force behind the attacks was Astaroth, the Shadowlord of Hate.

    The other stuff, the relationship's less direct.

    I had a hard time keeping track of all that stuff too....Which is, partly, why I feel it makes more sense as an extended foreshadow of things to come. The Shadowlords softly manipulating events, softening us up for their arrival. Each event, their presence a little clearer.

    Also remember that most of those other events were set in motion by the presence of Blackrock, which the Shadowlords had apparently decided was important to their being able to return. Or maybe they plan to use it while they are here?

    Thanks for the info. Is there a place I could go and read the story lines in order of how they happened? I would love to see how it has evolved, but have no clue where to even start looking for that kind of thing.

    Have you checked the UO webpage dedicated to Events 2008? I noticed they made the logo darker, so it must have more complete information than it did...

    I would add a question for the devs as well:

    Is this stuff the "filler events" or is this stuff the "main events?1"

    1-This concept of filler events and main events is taken from a post (I think it was a dev post) I remember from Stratics BC. [before crash]
