    Pretty sure for T2A there's only the stories about the discovery.. but those stories were tied into the main plotline of the game (the FoA failing at casting armageddon, opening the passage to the lost lands...Blackthron going missing for a while and reappearing having traveled the new lands though apparently not by his own choice... Shamino impersonating LB for a while... the various books and journals and history surrounding Khaldun).

    While we're on the topic, I was looking for a really ancient map I once saw that was claimed to have been from early in UO's development - it had a much larger ocean with multiple continents. Does anyone happen to know where a copy of that can be found?

    There are bits and pieces floating around, including stories about Ilshenar. Basically, my guild has taken these small offerings and expanded on them.

    Yes!! Thank you :)

    *files it away for future reference*

    (I thought the SE lands map might have been based on the design of one of the other continents originally, but it looks like they were completely different)

    I found the Samurai Empire fiction.


    Everybody was kung-fu fighting
    Those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit frightning
    But they fought with expert timing

    They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
    They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
    It's an ancient Chineese art and everybody knew their part
    From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

    Everybody was kung-fu fighting
    Those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit frightning
    But they fought with expert timing

    There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
    He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
    We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand
    The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip

    Everybody was kung-fu fighting
    Those cats were fast as lightning
    In fact it was a little bit frightning
    But they did it with expert timing

    (repeat)..make sure you have expert timing
    Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning

    Isnt the landmass southwest on the "Original" UO map, very similar to Malas? Just turn it and stretch it a bit more.

    I don't remember Samurai Empire having fiction associated with it.. Any fiction at all.. SE was release in November of 2004, and there were only 5 BNN stories published that entire year.

    I think the SE site may have had a little fiction on it, but nothing substantial.

    SE and ML came out during the EM-less years when EA didn't seem to care too much about consistent fiction.

    But sometimes, the Wayback Machine is handy ;)

    Can be slow loading, and it pretty much confirms the suspicions there was precious little 'official' fiction for Tokuno - but it may bring back a couple of memories!

    Seems there's just the BNN articles and the one-page piece in the SE manual.

    Actually i'd love to see that.. I remember thumbing through it, but I couldn't buy the guide back then as i'd already gotten the original.

    Also, I have the LBR guide, and it has summaries of the "savage empire" and "Exodus" scenario stuff, if you want I should type it up (there's nothin special to the pages, so typed would be enough), as well as a fairly long section on "names to remember" with information on a lot of important figures in the game lore..

    Is interesting reading the "in concept" virtue designs in it again, too.
