    Whirl Pool Investigations

    Commander Drake Foxx met the eager citizens at the Jhelom docks around
    8 o'clock. He jumped upon the table and addressed those who were
    gathered about the current situation and what needed to be done.

    "An Enemy force has challenged the order by the Royal Navy! They are
    ready to die for their cause. We don't know who or what they are but
    they are deadly! They've surrounded the entire pillar."


    - Destroy the enemy Force and sink their fleet.
    - Open a passage for the recovery Ship.
    - Explore the Whirl Pool entrance.


    Once the objectives were heard the citizens set off towards the serpents
    pillar. Getting out of the port was a bit tricky as some ships bumped into
    each other. Perhaps some of the sailors were "Green Horns".

    Once arriving at the Serpents Pillar the crews were faced with some
    powerful ships. Most if not all of the enemy vessels out gunned the the
    newly created fleet under the command of Commander Drake Foxx.

    The first engagement was not a good sight. A few crews abandoned their
    ships to board enemy vessels only to find instant death. Others took
    refuge on nearby boats that had larger crews. Once everyone started
    to get use to sea battle they began to sink enemy ships one by one.


    As each vessel went under they gave off a larger explosion shock wave
    that shook nearby vessels. Few reports came in of people being thrown
    overboard and washed ashore but were able to rejoin the battle by citizen
    gates and special created Navy gates.

    Some lucky citizens were able to find special loot on the captains corpses
    like a "Harpoon" and "Navigator's Tricorne" Once the enemy vessels were
    taken care of the crews were ordered to enter the Whirl Pool.

    They were faced with under water creatures called Dihydrogen Monoxite
    and Deep seas serpents. The creatures were dispatched quickly but the
    crews found themselves at underwater dam made of boulders


    Command Drake Foxx ordered the crews back to the Jhelom launching point
    to discuss ways to penetrate the boulders. The first attempt made was
    explosion potions but they had little to no effect. Some began pushing on
    the boulders but they would not budge.

    Once they exhausted their ideas Drake Foxx announced he would contact
    Lord Balandar to construct a "Bomb" with sufficient explosive power.
    We all eagerly await to hear word about the completion of the device.
    Keep your eyes pealed on the news!

    Let it be known that sea battles and sinking a enemy vessel has been
    something requested for many years. EM Dudley fulfilled a very old wish of
    many players. I hope to see MANY more of these sea events!

    We got to walk on water!!!! Who hasn't wanted to walk on the water
    before? *Smiles* Another thing I thought was rather cool was the under
    water tunnel. Something I have never seen before in Ultima Online.

    The event did come with a major problem. The pets going poof but for
    comments on this news story lets try to keep it to the storyline and the
    creativeness of the adventure.​

    I wasn't at the event but was in vent with guildmates who were and the minute I heard underwater tunnel I had them gate me in. I was very impressed. This is the 2nd event where the deco'd area has knocked me out (the other was the event after the treasure hunt contest). To whichever EM was responsible for those: WELL DONE and KEEP IT UP!
