    For a while now I have been gathering what I can on EM Events from within Europa and have been compiling an archive of reports and information. Finally I feel it is 'complete' enough to share for anyone wishing to read back or know what went on previously within the EM system.

    You can visit the website at Europa History , The events are split into years (2009 and 2010 online at the moment) and then into colours for each storyline.

    Since late 2009 I have been attending as many events as I have been able and making reports for Stratics and this site so you will probably recognize some of the reports! Any time I wasn't at an event I have found and with permission used another players report.

    I hope this website is of help to you all and I will eventually (when I find more time!) dig out my older screenshots from the previous years of EM Events.​

    Great work, thanks Mapper :thumbup1: I've put a link on the Europa RP General board at UO Forums for the people over there, hope that was ok. This deserves advertising far and wide :)

    And hi Emile, I see you're lurking here too ;)

    Great news for us while we're approaching to our own shard's 12th anniversary! I think the site should really have a complete history starting from 1998, maybe even mentioning IGM Talos and seers Illuceus and Intaria. They have some interviews posted here in stratics. Also, it might be a good idea to add some event items unique to Europa shard. Here are some BNN articles from 99 to 02:

    UO Stratics - BNN Archives - Town Cryer Archive - Europa

    Also, maybe a historic establishments section, eg. here is Sword & Shovel tavern's brief history: HISTORY of the Sword & Shovel We have a lot of other taverns currently active like Swaggers, so maybe they deserve a page too.

    You cant believe how easy it is to point missing stuff while you're not the person who is going to actually add them.

    Very interesting info about the guilds, I was just asking Petra the other day who the oldest guild in Europa would be. I thought GRD and ELV, Nice to see it is however ClanUK and CLOWN. :p

    I'd love to add information on Europa from before the EM system, Just alot of work! Will have to think about it.

    I think Tales of a Traveller is the only place that has the missing BNN articles about Europa like Dark Tides, The Coming of Nocsaal and Rothermere's Travels.
