    Hail and Well Met!

    I want to take a moment and let you know that I have left the Ultima Online development team. I am now working at BioWare Austin as a Systems Designer on Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    I want to thank all of you for many good years and memories. You all are the best, and I will miss you.

    I also want to extend a thank you to my Mythic colleagues. They are very passionate about Ultima Online and are extremely talented game developers. I have no doubt that the Ultima franchise will thrive for many more years. I look forward to seeing what’s next on the Ultima horizon.

    Before anyone asks…

    No, you cannot have my stuff. :)

    Sweet water and light laughter until next,

    Patrick “Leurocian” Malott

    Ugh I was not looking forward to reading this goodbye post. But the gaming world is tumulchuous. There are no goodbyes. I am also assuming you did not sleep with the CEO's wife. With that in mind, I will be looking forward to posting another welcome back.

    In between: Best wishes and beaucoup happiness for you!

    I hate to ask but

    Can I haz beta code?

    lol Just teasing. But SW has been the only game to take my glance away from UO on occasion.

    Good luck at BioWare. I hope they appreciate you as much as we do.

    TY for all that you have done for UO.

    Electronic Arts is combining its top RPG maker, Bioware, with its top MMO maker, Mythic, to make one massive roleplaying studio group.

    Still in the house if needed.

    You think so?

    I consider the Star Wars franchise dead, and this would be the second MMO I am aware of based upon that franchise.

    Well, this is sad news.

    Sorry to see you go (again) Patrick.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to go through the list of crafting bugs several years back and finally addressing all of those. It was the most significant fix to crafting problems in YEARS including the fix for double rolls that stole properties on leather armor.

    Best of luck to you in the future - the Star Wars team is lucky to have you.

    Systems Designer on Star Wars? Please keep this in mind then eh?

    *cheesy grin*

    It's hard to feel sad when you're making such a great move with Bioware but I'm sad anyways.

    May the stars above you lift you up and the earth beneath you ground you.

    Leurocian-

    Your leaving, Unexpected this is, and unfortunate. Miss you I will.

    Me very sad this makes.

    For you, only the best I wish. Yes, hmmm.

    (I figured since you were going on to Stars Wars I'd bid you farewell in Yodish)

    May the force be with you, always.

    Take care, our Leurocian, no matter where you are, and I wish you good luck.

    Thank you very much for all good work!

    I think that you are in a longer vacation to be refreshed after your hard work to iron out Stygian Abyss, especially Imbuing.

    I am actually sure that you'll be back someday as you once and Wilki did, for you dedicated devs cannot live without UO!
