    So, assuming that September 25th is the birth date for Ultima Online, this means that we are only a few days away from its 13th Birthday ?

    Are we ready for the celebrations ?

    I wonder if there will be a cake with 13 candles on it.......

    How about... *thinking*
    Party hats!
    Streamers or confetti
    Donkey tails we can pin on other player's clothes or armor
    A slice of cake or some ice cream
    I haven't been to a birthday party in a long time. I'm trying to remember what one is like. =)

    Nope all the UO players need to line up. And first to go through the SPANK Machine is whoever thought slasher would be a fun addition, the GMs and then every one else that annoyed our game play. The UO population is rumored to be small. I'm sure those that exit the machine will appreciate us more

    Of all the things wrong, you are gonna pick on the slasher? In my opinion I love fighting him. He is one of a couple things that cannot be easily soloed!

    Whats wrong with slasher? The fact that he cant be easily soloed by every other person in the game? What ever happened to teamwork and community?

    The 13th Birthday Item should be a book with the definition of teamwork in it.

    But really, I have so many cakes it isnt funny, the square ones from last year are hideous.

    All I want for year 13 is the game to keep going and the devs to keep working on bugs :) Now that is the best present a player could ask for!

    ya don`t need teamwork if ya can pretty much solo almost any monster in the game.

    13 is a nice number, I`d like to see a Classic Shard this year.

    The way I read the post--it sounded more like Shamus thought it was a good thing Slasher could not be soloed.

    Buy Yaaa, Happy Birthday!

    13 is a great number!

    One of my lucky numbers. I'm hopeful for something really cool for the 13 years.

    We'll have to wait and see but hopefully not too long.

    naked, and weaponless, it must be done naked! (and if you soul stone on wrestling and resist just for the occasion may the UO gods have mercy on your meta gaming soul..)

    I'd suggest them to hide peoples bank money during the day of the 13th anniversary as an evil joke but knowing EA they would accidently actually remove the money. :D

    Like most buildings that pretend there is no 13th floor.. I propose UO pretend it was never 13 and move right to the 14th anniversary.

    Otherwise we've got a new teenager on our hands!

    A cake and when you place it in your house it burns it down. LOL

    Buildings not having a "13th" floor was the exact same thing that first came to my mind when I read this post. Also, your comment about a new teen... That is kinda frightening really. I wonder if it'll start rebelling, like instead of getting up at 5ish (Server up), it'll start crashing out at 5ish and won't get up till like 3pm.

    Oh and the "spank machine", you know the team member who developed your beloved Slasher just might enjoy it, did you ever consider that? Such an idea just doesn't fly with me, I hate it when you discover something weird about a pal and than you just have to go on like it's no big deal. Hasn't happened to me many times, but nonetheless it has, and than it's just awkward from that point on... :lol:

    Seriously though... Being someone who was there at the very beginning of the game going live and even somewhat prior (Did play beta, but on the worst PC ever to successfully run UO), I must say, I never would have guessed the game lasting this long. I even seem to remember the original team suggesting the game wouldn't be a very long term project. It says a lot about a game to last 13 years, and still have thousands of people play it daily... Well as long as that game isn't solitaire...

    Actually, we already had that on the 11th Anniversary; how soon people forget.... rolleyes:

    I wonder, shall we designate Mythic HQ as "Castle Anthrax", given all the references to spanking in this thread?
