    Re: Pics from the 2010 Fairfax Town Hall

    I don't think this is Billy Teng. I remember this guy being introduced but forgot his name. The drinking at the bar after the event didn't help. :)

    I have his introduction on vid, I will have to dig through and find it.




    [​IMG]


    This is a picture of Grimm Omen in the pirate do-rag. Right next to Grimm is Billy Teng. We can only see the back of his head.

    I think I have a pic of Billy or maybe a Vid that I can capture a still from. I will check and post it up if I do.

    Re: Pics from the 2010 Fairfax Town Hall

    Hey man! Glad you made it home ok.

    About Grimm, this guy is something else. He is the only pre Samurai Empire Dev that I know of. He is a bit of UO history walking on two legs.

    My wife and I shared a breakfast with him not knowing his connection with Ultima Online other than he was an attendee. He was personable, funny with a razor sharp wit, passionate about UO, and knowledgeable as hell.

    He REEKED of mainstream normal, even tempered, well balenced, socialized, working guy. In fact all the dev's that I met were way more mainstream than I expected.

    The attendees were the ones that you had to watch for (some more than others) but the dev's, especially Grimm, were cool as hell.

    Re: Pics from the 2010 Fairfax Town Hall

    I asked Mesanna about a video I took and she said it would be cool if I posted it. Thanks for the quick answer, Mesanna! But first, please check out JC's thread and his full video of the demo telecast. Then enjoy my very shaky video of the demo, and if you have a decent conn dbl click on the video to open up its YouTube page and change the 360p to 720p (I like to press pause and let it load up, hehe), then, if your video card likes you, watch it full screen.

    This is Mike "Phoenix" Moore.

    This is "Shade".

    I'm blanking on his real name right now. I enjoyed talking with him at the after-hall get-together. He took Sarakah's (sp?) old job. He develops the live events.

    Thanks for posting the pix, GvP. It was a pleasure meeting you at the Town Hall!

    Standard bags came with a black shirt w/ classic UO logo in white, Ultima Online spelled on back collar, UO ankh keychain and UO Faire 2000 button. We were all given the opportunity to pick up two posters, the huge ML poster (I framed the first one I got from the first DC meet, hehe) and a Stygian Abyss Gargoyle-based poster, as well as a McFarlane Blackthorn action figure.

    Mystery bags (there were maybe 9 of them? not sure) had cloth maps ... and not sure what else. You could also have taken a Juggernaught action figure mint in box, but there were only a few of those.

    A VERY generous effort by EA Bioware-Mythic.

    Thanks Retro! I really enjoyed having breakfast and talking with you and your wife that morning as well. Glad you brought up the Pre-UOSE staff - There are actually 4 of us that have been around that long. Vex (Phoenix), Messana and MrsTroubleMaker are original OSI folks, and as you said, I got here pre- UOSE.

    I hope I get the opportunity to meet up with you and your family again, and I'm glad you guys made it home Ok.

    Cheers,
    GRIMM

    Most of the mystery bags had an ML t-shirt, an ankh keychain, and one of the Britannia/Lost Lands cloth maps they sold for a dollar around the launch of LBR from the UO store. Some people got rarer stuff from them though.. for example, guy sitting next to me got a UO:R promotional shirt instead of an ML one and a UO World Fair 2000 badge as an extra. Someone sitting off to my left got a cloth Ascension map instead of the UO one. And someone sitting in front of me got what appeared to be a numbered crystal paperweight with a message from the Avatar (that I have heard of before and know is exceedingly rare, but hell if I remember what it's from). And yes, one of them had a signed McFarlane shirt in it.

    And I wish I could have gotten the cloth SI map that was framed on the wall. :[
