    Ultima Online Stratics Announcement:


    [​IMG]

    Early in January Lord EdMcManus posted a thread on Chesapeake board looking for a home for his UO flash movies. My diligent staff dragged me into that thread and Ed and I arranged to settle the movies into to a comfortable niche on Stratics.

    There has been a short delay. Recently improved technology has allowed the inclusion of previously unseen footage from drafts that Ed felt needed to be seen. Finally, they have been given a bit of a 'wash and brush up' with the help of Lord Gareth.

    We are now happy to announce that our new residents can be found under the heading 'Character and Lifestyle' subheading 'Comics' in the index menu on the right side of http://uo.stratics.com.

    These movies form a record of times past on Chesapeake, as seen through the eyes of Lord Ed Mcmanus. Here is a shortcut to their new home, we hope you will enjoy watching them.

    Heyy my friend showed me this archive like two or three weeks ago :) old news! jk lol nice nice except I have to say--and I don't mean to open a can, but--for those expecting a Chesapeake history lesson, don't. Some very tilted, one-sided, and nasty stuff at times. But as far as the development of Chesapeake goes, Champs guild was the first post-champ spawns zerg guild (and thus post-T2A, despite claims of only recognizing Brit and the old lands). Before Champs it was like 30 unaffiliated blues doing Terr Keep spawns getting raided by 3 reds lol.

    I enjoyed my time in the McManus Republican Army long ago. Always seemed like a really cool guy.

    :) Thank you !

    Certain players names, are an insta flash back for myself, of my first years in Ultima Online, & made UO fun to be a part of back ...in the day.

    My first ever puny home in Ultima Online, on Chesapeake back in the day, was in a *forest west of Minoc* 1998, & I had a certain 'dread lord named Ed McManus' as a distant neighbor of mine, [ages ago] along with many other colorful characters, surrounding my first ever puny, UO home.

    But the one neighbor, had made lotsa flash movies 'bout UO back in the day. I am glad, that some of that history of UO; [Chesapeake] via these flash movies, is/has been preserved. :)

    I will have to watch them [all] for the fun/memories of it all, and maybe one of my older chrs. corpses are even, in one of these flash movies.

    LOL :mf_prop::thumbup::lol:

    I saw a flash video about UO a while ago that I NEED to find... any help?

    it had the song bitter sweet symphony playing and they changed the lyrics to fit UO. It was about an old school PK talking to a noobie about the days of old... man, i miss that.

    Having been on both sides I can truly say I miss those days.... I was killed, I killed, I was stolen from, I stole, I was raided, I raided. Videos like that make me wonder why my accounts are still active.

    I always liked the old dance with the devil flash and the other ones by those guys as well. Shadow something?
