    I generally avoid jumping on the dev-bashing trains as I'm glad the game still exists at all and has ongoing content development however it really is hard to understand the lack of communication. There are a number of features both in-game and out that were suppost to be released months ago with no news at all as well as the expansion not having been actually announced other than in the dev video months ago. I understand it's a small team and I know they do the meet and greets but it seems very clear to me that the community as a whole would love a twice a month or so update. It really wouldn't take more than ten minutes to type up a quick "hey guys, working out a snafu with the skynet-sql interface widget on the new site and it'll hopefully launch in a few weeks, the bank check conversion wibbly-wobbler is in testing to make sure it's solid and the art guy made the new thong graphic for the expansion yesterday and it looks good!"

    I would take a weekly post on the patch screen vs the meet and greets. I like the idea of the meet and greet but its a horribly inefficient way of connecting with the customer base.

    hmm Rumors...

    The Development team has been busy working on the new expansion, limiting any communication. A number of Easter Eggs and Gag additions are being included in the new expansion as listed below. Please be aware these are subject to change at any time, and absolutely shouldn't be taken seriously.
    • Ice Cream will be craft-able by cooks, but only in the following flavors: Salt and Vinegar, Dill Pickle, and Anchovies.
    • Public Sanitation comes to Sosaria, with an addition to the Carpentry Craft Menu of Out Houses can finally be created for placement in Castle Courtyards. When questioned as to why only Castle Courtyards we were told, "Go away Peasant, don't ask questions!"
    • To deal with the unfortunate effects of Outhouse pits becoming full a new Skill will be added to the game, "Gong-Farmer". Players will be able to target Outhouses, and recover the coins, weapons, and other items "dropped" within. When questioned about it, the Dev response was "Hey it's no worse than begging."
    • Religion comes to Sosaria! New religious artifacts will be introduced to UO, in an attempt to treat all religion equally items such as crucifixes and menorah's will be available as well as less known religious iconography. Examples are: The Ancient Silver Colander Helmet sacred to the Pastafarians, and new pre-built house models inspired by the structures at the Gwalior Fort due to it's Jainism Iconography.
    • A new Client will be released, replacing both the EC and CC. This client's art style will look markedly similar to that found in World of Warcraft, which will lead to legal issues, and the eventual transference of all Ultima IP's to Blizzard as part of a massive settlement. When asked why that art style was chosen, the response was, "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, I thought they'd be thrilled."

    Ice Cream? You mean there might be a reason, however pathetic, for my cook to return?
    Sanitation? Goblins don't worry about things like that.
    Religion? I regard my own too seriously to inject it into a game.
    New Client? Nah. Definitely a not-gonna-happen.

    The Religion bit was more to poke fun at Pastafarianism. And the New Client bit for everyone who's been screaming for a true graphical improvement :p
