    Since this piece is relevant to the lore discussion of Ultima Online I wanted to make a copy of it here for us to discuss and debate.

    You can find the original thread here.

    Lord British entered the Ethereal Void bearing several (but not all) the shards of the Gem of Immortality. So long as once piece remained out of the clutches of evil it could not be reshaped and used for dark purposes.

    We also know that in Ultima Prime the Shadowlords emerge from the Gem of Immortality to possess Astaroth, Nosfentor, and Faulinei. And in Ultima Online the Three were trapped in the Void until we inadvertently released them.

    Is it possible that British mistakenly created or released the Shadowlords (in Ultima Online) by entering the Void with the Gems?

    What I remember of the Buckler "Moiety".

    The first mention of the shield I can remember was in reference to Anon who is the leader of the Council of Mages.

    Anon was invited by the newly appointed Ruling Council of Britannia(shortly after Lord British departed into the void) to reconcile the differences with the Council of Mages. It was unclear to me but it even seemed as though Anon was originally part of the new ruling council Lord British formed. However, shortly after its creation, Anon became frustrated with the operation of the Ruling Council. Eventually his frustration with the Ruling Council Boiled over and he threw his shield "Moiety" at the feet of the council members, declaring his resignation and return to the Council of Mages.

    It makes me wonder what happened to the Council and Anon.

    Their forces have managed to survive (for the time being). So was the Council destroyed in the Magincian Invasion? Or did they survive and flee to Moonglow?

    I'm hoping for the latter. It would be another element of conflict and political intrigue to the storyline with the inauguration of Queen Dawn.

    I believe this is the event you're referring to.

    And Anon's subsequent letter to the Council of Mages.

    Just a historical note about Annon. First, it seems I've been spelling his name wrong all this time. :) Annon was a member of the Great Council in Ultima V. I believe he was imprisoned like one of the other council members, Felspar by Blackthorne and the Oppression. This is Annon's conversation, taking from notableultima.com.
