    Welcome to the Ultima Online Archive, over the coming weeks we are working in partnership with UO Stratics to give the archives a new official home. Once the new archives are available a permanent link to easily view them will be available here.

    We apologize for this temporary disruption

    All current information can be found on the Home Page and Live Events Section.

    I'm hoping this is a good thing.

    Can't be any worse than when they made the Stratics forums the offical UO forums, eh?

    Stuff is probably safer and better maintained on stratics than on EA servers.

    Atleast Stratics has a dozen or so people who work on their website at any one time. If EA don't have the work force or time to do it, I see no issue why Stratics or any other community site cannot lend a hand! :)

    Stratics has been amazing over the years. They are my sole source for information about UO.

    Just poking some light fun :). Stratics has been rather stable over the years (well, aside from the big purge that deleted my account and made me lose all mah posts! >.>), and I see no reason that this arrangement would not work out for them. It seems mutually beneficial.

    Thats good stuff.



    Heres one that is sure to stir up a discussion:

    10/29/97 - "Healing and recovery rates were made highly dependent on the fullness of your character's stomach. "


    Another favorite - "The behavior of the "Call GM" button has changed. " -- Thats how long ago they started ignoring the calls , lol.

    Well, as it stands moving the archive somewhere isn't that important. However, if they were to put up some of the very old and unseen material that would just be an early Christmas.

    Edit: Like the complete pre-rush design docs for Serpent's Isle... /dream
    Edit more! Or some secretly hidden away copy of the Lost Vale!
