The castle is sold and so have all the pocessions and gold. The account has beed cancelled. This was my last UO account to go. At one time I was paying for 22 accounts a month. The player run town I built is gone. The parties I used to throw are just memories that will last forever. To the friends made along this journey I say farewell. Flint, Tess, Scarlet, and Gor and so many others from the beginning. To Airmid, Dreamlore, and others from the more recent, thank you. Friends do play a major role in the enjoyment of UO. I tried hard to be a positive impact on the game and the community. But when I realized I was trying to instill my morals and beliefs on others I decided it was time to leave. I, also could no longer support the cheating that goes on in the game. I could no longer support a company that I felt ignored the customers. I tried to bring attention to matters I felt strongly about. Ultima Online is probably the greatest game of it's kind. I still feel this way. I feel the company that runs it is the problem. I can no longer support that company with my fee each month. But on happier notes, I wish all you players the very best. I hope that UO finds a way to expand and flourish for all of you. I would like to share some memories that I will always have of UO: The days of being in Brit and someone came running in and shouted PK's had attacked them. The group that massed for revenge, even I who could not fight went with the group--me dieing would mean someone would be occupied and maybe another would kill them. The day someone attacked me while in my first home and the rescue swarm that came due to my call for help. Talk about a ganking. The opening of the GSS Keep Vendor Mall on LS. 1500 plus came to the event. We worked for weeks getting ready for it. We built a 2 story just to hold the items we were giving away--no lockdowns then. We had 4 lumberjacks and 5 miners out collecting resources for a month. Addons were coming out and we made them for EVERYONE for free. We handed out thousands upon thousands of addons and furniture. We had a staff of 15 just going into the crowd and giving stuff away non-stop for 3 hours. The fight in the corral between Lord.Blackthorn and Lord.British (notice the .) British was winning until Blackthorn pulled a knife. Never was a gathering this large ever seen or was it ever duplicated on LS. The opening of my own Tower for Vendors and the Halloween party we threw. Had to hire a guild to patrol the area so no PK's would even come close to interrupting. While others patrolled and dismissed thieves on the spot. We had 4-500 show up for this event. Gave away over 10 million in gold and items. This was before Trammel, you do the math. The opening of my Castle vendor mall in trammel. We crashed the server that day. The Valentines Day invasion on LS where hundreds of players got together and made sure people got a Valentines gift because OSI decided no gifts that year. Remember seeing the cupids? The chicken fights where the chickens would not die. The best cross dressed man in Britain contest. The net tosses that killed so many. The hundreds of events that my friends put on for the benefit of others. I would get an idea and put some cash up but others did the work usually not even being noticed for it. Those people I especially want to thank. Over the years there have been so many. But some of the names, Watcher, Aboo, Devil Woman,and so so many more, Thank You for what you made UO mean to me. I may come and scour these boards once in a while--I may even post now and then. UO will always mean something to me. I started playing to research a little on a book I wrote. Someday it may be published and people will recognize a little UO life in the book. But after the first month UO had me hooked. I should say the friends I made had me hooked. To all the people I have met, had an effect on, or who had an effect on me--Farewell and Safe Journeys, have a GREAT DAY! To all of you that don't know me--I wish you all the best.
