    Took quite a bit of photos, thought it would be fun to up this short video first. Great event, big thanks to Mesanna and the gang.

    Edit: Added some pics to the thread.

    Whoever made that cake, great job! Notice as it pans around (thanks for this George) you are able to see the important little details that make this cake that more special - the look of the stones on the outside walls of the Castle, and the intricate brick marks, the doors - well done!

    Now we know what the east,north and west side of a castle looks like. Maybe a future new UO will allow that in game. A day when you take an arrow to your south side and have to look away from the north to see who is there.

    Okay, apologize for the delay. Here are all the pics I took:

    [​IMG]
    Outside of the office building, as you enter the parking lot.

    [​IMG]
    All participants had a chance to sign this special 15th Year Anniversary poster.

    [​IMG]
    Just a random wall mount I want to stealth back and steal.

    [​IMG]
    The Dunkin' Donuts (arranged by "virtue") and Queen Mum cookies spread.

    [​IMG]
    Back row: EM Aname from LS, EM Barnaby from Catskills, and EM Autolycus from LS.
    Middle row: EM Cyno Razik (Pac), EM Dudley (Ches), EM Faine Morgan (Origin), and EM Eira (Sonoma).
    Front row: Nails Warstein from Catskills/Belgarath from Origin.
    (Thanks to EM Faine Morgan for captions!)

    [​IMG]
    I thought this poster was pretty cool.

    [​IMG]
    Happy 15th Anniversary UO! Kept falling down--even though Dudley did his best to stealth band-aid fix the situation ;).

    [​IMG]
    Mesanna signs a "black pumpkin" from Ozz, from Atlantic (correct me if wrong and I forget the guild, apologies).

    [​IMG]
    Chesapeakians! Second from left, standing, Nanoc (I believe?), Daktari behind him, Yoshi--well, wearing a Yoshi shirt :). Fill in and I'll update.

    [​IMG]
    More Chesapeakians.

    [​IMG]
    Yoshi and Rivi, Chesapeake (SHE).

    [​IMG]
    Newest (well, one of the newest) dev, Dudley! Congrats, sir! Misk, then Bleak.

    [​IMG]
    Plans for City Loyalty.

    [​IMG]
    Plans for new peerless style encounter.

    [​IMG]
    Peerless encounter continued.

    [​IMG]
    Plans to fix economy, UI, and improve PvE.

    [​IMG]
    New hues, pet slot changes, pet revamps, new tameables, and re-worked...well, hey, one thousand words.

    [​IMG]
    Graphic updates in development.

    [​IMG]
    New website! Marketing, marketing, marketing.

    [​IMG]
    Jeff hands out an extra robe to everyone on his left (audience right).

    [​IMG]
    Ozog (in orange), peeing on everything while no one is looking.

    [​IMG]
    Another look at the poster.

    [​IMG]
    The dining area--Mesanna and the gang went all out.

    [​IMG]
    Lunch menu, UO style.

    [​IMG]
    Offices, snack machines, and in the far right corner there were a ton of free Warhammer books and graphic novels. Very nice first come, first served finds.

    [​IMG]
    Front of the birthday cake IDOC.

    [​IMG]
    Back of the cake.

    [​IMG]
    EM Faine Morgan slicing through the cake.

    [​IMG]
    Talk about a healthy portion!

    [​IMG]
    Rivi (Chesapeake, SHE), too cool for cake line.

    [​IMG]
    Rivi, Dak (Chesapeake, SHE)
    [​IMG]
    Mr. Juan de Fuego (Lake Superior, I believe), whom Dak and I met during lunch. Behing Mr. de Fuego, what we deduced to be perhaps some UO2 models.

    [​IMG]
    What remained of the cake (could have fed an army).

    [​IMG]
    Alternative look at the damage.

    [​IMG]
    More blurriness on my part, apologies.

    [​IMG]
