    Yep a year has gone by since I last posted, Thus to re-kindle the flame of some of you old-timers who are still around, heres the +Ode To The Forgotten+ I had posted last year.. enjoy.. and keep the memories of those who bled for Sonoma alive...


    To the Pioneers of Ultima Onlines' original Roleplayers who made Sonoma a world worth logging into and loosing Girlfriends (boyfriends) over for the lack of
    attention they got! :p (1995-2000.. Prolly before many of you had computers! *grin* )

    Ariakan - My PvP partner and the one true friend i made in UO..
    Harlequin - My brotha from anotha motha..
    Denlor Darkblade - A Shadow.. A Silent predator of little words. Who needed words when your sword is coated with poison?
    Maximus - One of the Original Warlods...
    NecroLyte - A pioneer and visionairy of the "evil" side
    Necromancer - NecroLyte's RL brother.. funny man, but hella skilled in pvp..
    Serafina - Darkness's Queen... Need i say more?
    Alexander - Evil to the bone...
    Laurana - The person who got me (Kaizan) into the whole RPing shiznit..
    Rand'Al Thor - An Oddity of a man, and my first guild master and great RPer (when you understood what he was saying)
    Kaylin - Tree Hugger Extraordinaire!! (LOL *hugs*).. One of the sweetest gal in UO..
    King David - The Self Proclaimed king that Dark Intentions and Warlods started the first RP war against (which D and WL won with ease)
    Morgan Le Fey - Masochist? Saddist? both?! Who knows, but one hell of an evil gal... :p
    Loryn - One of the sexiest voices i've heard on the phone! *drools*
    Ariel - Sweet, kind, compassionate, and every other good comment i can think of.
    Cerberus - Pimpin ' r ' Us

    All the Old School SAS, WL, D, GoL, SoG, and YMCA Patrons - Shout out to you boiz/girlz and everyone else i forgot.. sorry its been so long now..

    And Finally... Yours Truly,
    Kaizan of Dark Intentions

    ++++++ Ode to the Forgotten +++++++

    The deaf shall hear the call of The Seven,
    and the face of Virtue shall decend from heaven,
    A self proclaimed king shall herald the fall,
    the veil of darkness lays claim to it all.

    He not of light, both wizard and Lord,
    holds forth darkness' banner with magic and sword.
    Corrupts one of the light, his seed he'll bestow,
    upon Tomorrow's Child, the veil will still to grow.

    The Crown of this world shall leave from its shell,
    as the Seven shall ride from the dark pits of Hell,
    The sea shall rise up and strike `gainst the land,
    and the shadow of twilight shall wound thy right hand.

    Unseen chains, bound virtuous hands,
    grim nightmares unleashed, stalked over the lands.
    Guilty they rested, the earth was their tomb,
    shrouds of darkness, and impending doom.

    He not of light, his hands unchained,
    watched from the shadows, as light slowly waned.
    A balance unstable, thin as a thread,
    while nature wept in rivers of red.

    A maiden of virtue ambitious and bold,
    united the light, the sages foretold.
    Swiftly the messenger of darkness came,
    Bore down the lady, extinguishing her flame.

    Knights of virtue, and a champion's might,
    challenged the shroud and the forces of night.
    Gallantly they came, with untread lies,
    accusing The One, for the lady's demise.

    Three of the Seven, put magic to rest,
    abandoned the fight, while Four tried their best.
    Their names unspoken, darkness they served,
    a legacy of heroes, that legend preserved.

    Four spirits remained amongst all their kin,
    continued to struggle, though now from within.
    Virtuous taunts ringing an eternal rhyme,
    A blind victory, not deserved nor sublime.

    Banished from daylight, corrupting the earth,
    a tower sprung forth in Shadow's rebirth.
    A mistress of twilight, darkness's queen,
    born to nobility in a court never seen.

    Farther the souls of the light disappear,
    enslaved in virtue, honor and fear.
    The One will stand, and darkness he'll guide,
    and heal the land from its blinding pride.

    Those where the times, ages ago,
    when heroes came from high and below.
    When virtuous wars turned mountains to sand,
    and battled fore'er to forge a new land.

    An Ode to those who fought from the soul,
    carried the torch, until the bell's toll.
    A story worth telling, and memories to keep,
    and dreams worth having while we're all asleep.

    Wow a year.

    I haven't played UO in a long long time.. And its best to keep the memories of what UO used to be, than play in a world that has changed for the worse (newer players won't know how great UO used to be.. Prior to the stupid Anti-PK rules like Murder counts and stuff) ..

    No.. I won't be coming back to UO.. theres nothing and noone to come back too.

    I play ShadowBane now, on the Chaos Server.. If anyone cares to know my characters on SB are:

    Knivez, Mordiken and Loh-ki on the Chaos Server. Soon though i will move to EQ2 when its released, because of the lag problems SB has during City sieges..

    Humble Regards,
    Former Kaizan of Dark Intentions

    I can relate to what you say. However I could never fine another game like UO that I enjoyed so much. I do wish you well in EQ.
  5. Kaizan...it's a treat to see you here, man. :)

    And it's GREAT that you have posted this Ode again. Thanks!

    These are good things to keep alive.

    Ultima Online was the best MMORPG I've played so far. But due to unfortunate tampering by Origin, they ruined the experience for the player who where mature enough to realise that MMORPGs should have their share of PvP. Too much constant whining, complaining and straight out crying from the victims of PKs turned UO into a child care center for Origin.

    Origin decided to listen to the complaints of the victims but turned their heads the other way when it came down to listening to the PvPers/PKers who made up more than 50% of customers of UO. EQ Capitalized on this and stole more than 80% of the UO customers because of Origin's up.

    There are many other factors than destoyed uo like: Spliting each shard in two (carebear land, and the normal land), The false promises of upcoming additions (like Necromancy which took 3 years to implement i believe, if not more), The lack of proper anti-cheat codes, The many bugs, the horrible support they gave the seers who donated their time to UO, the ridiculous Murder counts that pretty much destroyed PvPing and RPing wars (ie. During one RP war, when Dark Intentions and Warlods attacked Lady Birmingham's followes, I got 12 murder counts from Fellow RPers who got mad because they lost with 6-1 odds in their favor (9 vs 36 and they all died with D and WL take 0 casualties)..).

    Many other factors as well, far too many to remember.. UO was a true MMORPG the first two years of its release.. everything went downhill from there..

    sorry for not putting your name up in the shoutout.. There was so many people, how the heck you expect me to remember everyone. SAS was the bomb though.. SAS was like Kaizan's Body guard, half of them claimed to be Kaizan & Laurana's children.. hehe.. ah the good ol days.

    Anyway.. See ya around...

    Way to forget Morthius. He was much more important than the later WL you mentioned.
  13. "Way to forget Morthius. He was much more important than the later WL you mentioned. "

    Way to bring a post from so far back just to complain. Great job!
  14. NecroLyte was the founder of the WarLords.

    It's Morthius who was the 'later' WL, not Lyte, Alex and 'Mancer. They were on the scene loooong before him.
