    The Baja forum has a very interesting BNN article here ( http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=120692 ) regarding the lockdown of Castle Blackthorn. Unfortunately, I can't find the same article on the UO Herald and I can't seem to find that anyone started a thread for it here in U.Hall.

    This doesn't seem to be something unique to Baja. I checked several shards and found guards posted at Castle Blackthorn on the Trammel facet and a locked gate that prevented access into the castle itself. (There are no guards but there is a locked gate in Fel but I believe you can pick the lock. The gate/portcullis is up on Baja, but still down on Lake Austin.)

    Was this article posted prematurely on the UO website and then removed, but one sharp reporter noticed it and posted the info for Baja before it was removed?

    There's a lot of stuff from early UO that is missing from the uo.com web page - not everything was archived as it should have been.

    I wonder how many old BNN articles besides that one could be recovered via the internet wayback machine?

    Is that player written fiction by WarderDragon? He is listed as the author as well as the poster.

    Basara, I believe the article in question is NEW. Go look at Castle Blackthorn. Guards are posted there now in Trammel and there are cannons at the Britain end of the bridge.

    It says it is a BNN article and the guards are present on shards other than Baja. I also checked Lake Austin, Atlantic, Sonoma, Great Lakes....

    Oh I'm aware of that. I teleported into the castled and poked around on Trammel. I'll have to go visit the Felucca side and have a look see at Blackthorn's grave while I'm at it. Still, I was thinking WarderDragon posted his story to point out some new details that others weren't aware of.
