I too was wondering who this could be then while I was unpacking my xmass 2000 bells that I had transfered in with me there was a name upon a bell- Tyrant xmass 2000 was special for me it was my 1st year in UO i had come to the game before there were any houses in Trammel many months had past then that december we got our gifts thouse bells were making sounds every where it was great. I knew when I read that name that it was something about it then I saw the bell. although I cant prove it, the amount of real estate and most are forts and most have nothing in them looks to be an atempt to lower overall shard lag. And at Luna the shrine commemorating the 10th aniversary that gives us all free petals from the rose of trinsic has the signature of one who has a deep conection to this world. My final observation is the names of the houses and there location simple and classic just like the art style of UO. It said Origin is a shard that you were most likely to play side by side with a dev and if that is your name on my bell I just wanted to send you a cheery Hail! and well met!
