    Gunner here is some information that might help clarify things for the Origin Communinty.

    Pre-Fiction (Prior to the News Story): The Source

    Related Origin News (Current): HERE

    Character Application HERE

    Role-Play Ideas to Help Create a Character in the Kingdom of Lore HERE

    Out of Character Information:

    I am a role-player mostly known for playing the character Lore Denin on the Great Lakes Shard. My guild will be moving from Great Lakes to Origin. Role-Players and those interested in learning about role-play [RP] are welcome to join. If you have questions about Role-Play HERE is a really good explanation. Feel free to respond to this post with any questions you may have and I will answer them to the best of my ability.

    The style of RP will include politics, pvp (faction and rp guild war), pvm (spawns and hunts), mercantile (crafting and trading) with an overall theme of fulfilling the Timelords's Quest of Uniting the Worlds of the Multiverse with True Sosaria.

    Some of our Out of Character goals will be to create a fun and immersive rp envirnment for Origin players, test and give feedback on Faction changes and use the new client in PVP to test its strenghts and weaknesses in an effort to help move UO into the future.

    Players are welcome to create characters on Origin or may transfer with us when we “Build the Shardal Gate on Great Lakes” and move to Origin – Thrus Jan 6th 2010.

    I will post in game stories along with OC details leading up to the transfer event on Jan 6th. This will be an immersive role-play environment and all players interested in joining are asked to fill out a Role-Play Agreement/Character Application Form HERE.

    Below are Kingdom Council Positions, Royal Staff and Organizations characters may be interested in joining. Players are welcome to propose the creation of additional Council/Staff or Kingdom Organizations they would be interested in participating.

    Re: [OC] Character Agreement/Application

    Character Application for the Kingdom of Lore

    This is a character application to join the role-play Kingdom of Lore on the Origin Shard.

    Role-Play Rules Agreement:

    - By playing a character in the Kingdom of Lore I agree to follow the laws of the realm and/or accept the legal consequences if my character chooses not too. There will be well defined laws and consequences. If you are not interested in role-playing in a strict legal role-play setting which will include building codes that restrict home size and building materials in areas of the Kingdom, zoning laws which will restrict trade, Kingdom taxes, a justice system that will include court and sentencing which could result in jail time then please do not apply to join the community. Players who wish to participate in the Kingdom but do not wish to have housing restrictions can settle in areas outside the Kingdom’s territory.

    -Citizens of the Kingdom must belong to the Kingdom Guild [Lore] to be considered a citizen of the Kingdom. The Guild will be factions/rp war. Only Citizens of the Kingdom may place homes in the Kingdom territory.

    -This is an immersive role-playin experience. You are expected to remain in character at all times, whether you are pvming, spawning, selling, trading, factioning, etc.

    -When in battle you are expected to abide by the role-play community’s rules of war.

    -Use emotes (*smiles*, *doubles over laughing*) to describe actions rather then shorthand such as ROFL, LOL or :).

    -A Player may use party, guild, and alliance chat to convey out of character information. If you can not communicate through any of the above means you may use brackets [] to convey out of character information but please do so sparingly.

    -Ventrillo will have a General Channel where players may talk out of character and a role-play channel where players will be expected to be in character. Players are expected to be in the role-play channel when they are playing their role play characters.

    Role-Play Springboard for Joining the Kingdom of Lore:

    Those moving from Great Lakes:

    The Majority of Characters moving from Great Lakes would have served under Lore in the Order Guard, True Britannians or have been citizens of the Town Whispering Winds.

    Others wishing to join would be those interested in The Timelord's Quest of Order or those wishing to start a new life in a different world.

    Moving from other Shards:

    Players can role-play some of the Order Guard who were sent out in search of the Sosaria we call "First Shadow. When the word reaches Order Knights in other words that First Shadow has been found, they will be summoned to first Shadow to establish the Kingdom of Lore and act as its military(Origin Shard).

    Creating Characters on Origin:

    The Kingdom of Lore has been established in secret for hundreds of years by the Seer Hawkwind. It has a native population who have been waiting the their King to arrive from accross the multiverse.

    Though perhaps living on Origin for many years, they are not natives of the shard as they were brought to this Kingdom from other worlds in the multiverse that were facing destruction. The Seer was not able to rescue everyone but selected those who would help the establish a Kingdom based on accomplishing the Timelord's Quest.

    This opens the door to role-play in the kingdom other then human. Perhaps a clan of dwarves was saved from a distant sosaria facing destruction, etc.

    Natives of Origin

    This is the current Origin community who's characters have not yet been exposed to the Kingdom, its people and Philosophies. Some may embrace it and join the kingdom, some may reject it and stand against the Kingdom, others may accept it but remain as they are with no strong views on the Kingdom either way.

    Find your own way

    The most creative person in your character's life is you the player. The above are just a few ideas to help you get started creating a character for the Kingdom of Lore, in the end the thought and detail you put into the character's creation, personality and philosophy will determine the direction of your character's life. Have fun and see you in game.

    There is an expression in your world that describes his situation better then I could...

    "Whipped" i believe it is...

    I will see him at Christmas. Its when I got him logging in again last year so maybe there is hope.

    Lore's Player

    PS: Didn't I see your scribe coping the "Glorious Adventures of Lore Denin volumes I-XXXIV at Martyna's library? You might have a better appreciation for UO e-literature if you selected something remotely interesting or at least written in complete sentences.

    Hahaha, well when you see him tell him I say hello.

    As for the e-lit, I'll be sure to look for your novel on amazon so I can read it on my girlfriend's kindle!

    Glad to see you're back, even if its not on GL.
