    Was reading the login news today, at the end of the message it invited us to join a live event on Sept 25th. We can meet Lord British (Garriot). Am I making too much of this? Could Garriot becoming involved with UO? Love to hear your thoughts.

    My opinion is no..he will not become involved in UO. Possibly he is repaying a "debt" for taking liberties with Sota...hahaha.

    Personally, I think this is great news. Great things to come, maybe? If not, an appearance by Lord British can only be beneficial for this game, what ever way you look at it :)

    Is it Garriot or is this a PR stunt?

    Holy CRAP! That's a bit cool! I wonder if Blackthorn will carry the old or new paperdoll. Hmmmmm.

    If this is true, the devs missed a perfect place to draw interest at the State of UO Q&A this week.

    He tried to get back into UO before he even started SoTa he said it in one of his many interviews prior to the kick starter..EA wanted none of it..I'm sure he still is quite interested in the Name(considering it is his)..and giving it life, just unfortunately can't
