    *notes that only level 1 of the underworld has been implemented*

    (still lots and lots of IP left to mine there before needing to move on to the next game)

    so your saying that your opening more parts of the underworld in the future? if so that's cool the bigger the better. I wonder how many levels there will be. Still one day i hope to see A labyrinth of world expansion too but no rush.

    ( It's not my decision, just my observation :) )

    Yknow, I just don't think it would work as well as UW1, especially since the "worlds" would just be constricted dungeons, since nothing outside of the locations used in the game was ever pictured, detailed, or explained, aside from stories from a few characters that dont tell much.

    I'd be a lot nicer to him if he did. Well, moderately nicer. I'm only capable of so much. :p

    Much like the gargoyle lands from U6 were confined to a tiny village which has been expanded to Ter Mur? (there was a lot of concern before SA that Ter Mur would further dilute the population, but there's not a lot of discussion about that since it was released)

    There are lots of possible ways that mini-worlds could be used - as something that falls between a dungeon and a full-fledged facet. Outside of event arcs, UO has always been very light on story-telling relative to other MMORPGs: the worlds simply exist and we project our own stories onto it rather than having trapped-in-time-loop quests hand-fed to us.

    A lot of what happens in the next era depends on exactly what the devs decide the role of the Guardian will be (we are approaching his era) - will he exist at all in an avatar-free universe? Will he simple be another boss monster trotted out for a story arc? Or will the devs use him as something different and new, as a device to ask us hard questions about how we want to shape the worlds we live in.

    Probably, but I can always be nicer. My ratio is like 90% nice/10% mean. I think I've hit just about every regular here with that 10% from time to time. :D

    So...on top of the pirate and labyrinth add on, you will implement a story arc for the avatar and guardian? That'll be great Maplestone! You are adding flying carpets too right?

    What are these expansion planned for?

    I'll be holding you to your words you know! Kekeke
