    I want to restart a Legends "reader/newspaper" (like Legends Magazine if anyone remembers that). Found some interest in it and some help but very little. So thought I'd ask here before giving up.

    Anyone interested in reading one?
    Anyone interested in helping out?

    And it needs a new name. 1 mill UO gold to the one whos name is chosen. You can submit the name in a pm, just give your character name and the new "reader" name. Maximum of 15 letters. One name per account please.

    The 1 mill will be awarded whether or not the "reader" makes a debut.

    Totally enjoyed the magazine so looking forward to the newspaper as well. Let me know how I can help.
     
  3. I'm very interested in it as well as Darri, I might even be able to contribute in some way or another either providing a link for a UO Comic that I will create to publish in the book or maybe a short story something like that :).

    Well... thank you for yours posts but Ive decided against it. Ill throw the names anonymously to a 3rd party to pick one and award the 1 mil. Thanks to my wife Avi Dragoneye for donating the gold. And to Danse Macabre who has already submitted an excellent story, maybe she will share here. Thanks to the rest who have offered help and/or support.
    My apologies to those who were interested.

    I was wondering if there could be a section on "Legends of Legends" - characters who may no longer be played, but who, in their day, were keepers of community?

    We may be a little slow on submitting things ... it takes a while to get into a rythm.

    By the way, speaking of books, I notice there's a most interesting one sitting on the ground in front for WBB ...

    Pen, as you know I've been scouring the lands searching for a printing press for this project. I've checked with tinkers, woodworkers, bankers..... nobody knows where there might be one .... until this morning :)

    cousin Amroth regularly travels to that den of scoundrels, Buccaneer's Den, and this morning he happened to fall into a hole in the ground. He tells me this happens now and then in that place, and he can easily find his way out, but today he stumbled across a dilapidated old machine. He had no idea what it was, but he brought along this painting to me, as he knows I might have an interest in anything old.

    It seems we hit the jackpot here, Pen...... she's a bit old and cantankerous, but if you talk sweetly to her and turn the crank gently she produces the loveliest bound books you ever did see :D

    Wow thanks Dev. I hired a horse team for transport to the workshop whenever you want to reassemble. I knocked out a wall to make room.

    And all help is appreciated :).
