    Its supposed to be a Black rock detector of some sort, if my memory serves me correctly. Lets hope the Devs put those mages back to work and get it done, while its existance is still known to many.

    [/ QUOTE ]As Grymzor71 said, it's supposed to be a blackrock detector. The Britannian military has officially given their support to it, which might explain the delay!

    But, in all seriousness, it will be used in the first event when the new story arc begins.

  22. The Britannian military? Aren't they in league with the Followers of A? That trial of Ricardo group. The Royal Council was it? How did that story go again?

    Couldn't possibly happen. Perhaps randomly appearing hot tubs full of arch-mages though...

    The "thing" is a blackrock detector, designed by the mage Kronos.
    Construction of the detector began more than one year ago, when Kronos' apprentice Wexton asked for help to gather the required materials. The people of Britannia quickly collected enough resources to start the construction, but after the tragedy in Haven all progress was halted when the Guild of Mages withdrew all funding, fearing what could happen if another lode of blackrock was found.
    However, construction resumed when the Royal Treasurer Lord Francesco decided to fund the completion of the device...
    Apparently, it takes a while to approve spending of royal funds, because nothing has happened since [​IMG]

    [****BIG SPOILER AHEAD**** - don't read if you don't like spoilers!!!]







    Last spring, a public test of the blackrock detector event (also known as the Mad Mage event) was performed on Test Center. When Kronos activated the blackrock detector, obviously everything went horribly wrong and a time rift opened in Moonglow. The time rift led to a "timeshifted" version of Moonglow (a copy of the center of Moonglow surrounded by the void) full of evil creatures led by the three Shadowlords. The Timelord also stepped out of the rift to assist the players against the Shadowlords.
    Loot on the Timeshift creatures included new items like a Cloak of Corruption and a few others.
    The Mad Mage event was never released to the production shards (probably EA ran out of time for the KR release, and the event was replaced by the Destruction of Haven which introduced KR), but according to Cal's letter (and Draconi's post) it is finally going to be released in March.
    Probably it will be different from the version that was tested last year, but this can at least give you an idea of what you can expect!

    ABSOLUTELY you have previous for it. It has been well documented in the historical records of UO, that the god known as Draconi, also know by other names such as the Master of Destruction, has an insatiable desire for all things that goes BANG, closely followed by masses of death and destruction, but we still loves you.
