My Idea

    I have recently sent a note to Joanne of EA Mythic, who is the community person for UO. I requested that the name "Lady Pheonix" be added to the names used for wandering healers. There is a precedent for this type of action, when "grog" of Catskills passed away they added his name to the list of NPC's. Here is the Taxt of the note I sent:

    Dear Joanne,

    It is with a very heavy heart that I write you this request. I have been playing Ultima Online for over 10 years and have come to realize what this game is truly about; it is about the people that play the game. Recently on Legends one of the most special people to play the game passed away. Her name was Darlene Archibald, the character that most remember her for was named Lady Phoenix.

    Darlene made the game more enjoyable for all those that played with her. Her guilds held numerous shard-wide activities from net tosses to auctions. She truly loved this game and the social aspect it provides. I spent hours speaking with her while our IDOC guild waiting for houses to fall. She never had an ill word to speak about any other player, her only goal was to have fun in the game and help others also have fun.

    I would encourage you to review the Legends forum on statics to see just how much Darlene meant to our shard. The Legends shard is a very tight knit shard, and Darlene was a key piece holding us together.

    My request is a simple one that is based on precedent set when “Grog” of the Catskills shard passed away in 2007. The name “grog” was added to the list of NPC names. I would like as a memorial to Darlene that her character names of “Lady Phoenix” be added to the list of names for the wandering healers on Legends (I am not sure if this can be done on a shard basis). I think given all the help that Darlene gave to all of the members of the legends community having her name among the names of the wandering healer population would be a very fitting tribute.

    Thank you,

    Newthunder


    If people think this is a good idea please send a PM to Joanne_mythic, here is the link to send a pm to her:

    Does anyone know if this has been finalized yet or not? I haven't been reading stratics for awhile now, but find this to be one of the best ideas yet that I have seen on stratics! I will send a PM post haste but first I want to slug NT in the arm really hard. I have not really had to face Sue's passing as of yet and boy did this catch me off guard and make need some tissues. Thanks ya big lug! Anyway off to PM.
