    It's time to release the final three pieces for our Anniversary puzzle. This should allow you to finish the artwork and get a nice impression of the complete piece.

    Some people don't have $65 to spend on something like that.. :(

    Same price for the Dark Age of Camelot lithograph, and they couldn't sell through them, so they keep putting them on sale for $15 off (or more).

    Make it a $15 Walmart-quality poster and I'd buy it.

    The really funny thing is, a lot of DAOC players felt the exact same way - "$65??" and like I said, they ended up having problems selling through. Even today the DAOC lithograph is on sale again for under $50.

    It's beautiful, but damn you would have thought they learned their lesson with DAOC.

    Hmm any possibility to have color version of the 15 anni graphic incorporated on jacket and hoodies? White T shirt have no appeal at all....

    I for one would shell out the cash for a decent durable jacket or comfortable sweatshirt\hooded sweatshirt.

    Another thing that would probably sell like hot cake and it is pretty obvious that we needed one for 15 Anni would be.....

    15 anniversary UO Pin. If you guys want to make some $$$ this one is a no brainer.

    No, a cloth map would have been a no brainer. It is easily the most requested real life, physical UO related thing.

    a simple black baseball hat with either a white or full color logo of the dragon on the 15 UO logo or just a UO symbol on the hat would be cool. or a black tshirt with the 15th anni puzzle pic on it

    Very nice :)

    Sadly though I don't do white T-shirts :( As a truckdriver white does not last long, those rigs are greasy lol. I would snatch one up in a second if it were black. Lithograph is gonna look good in da man cave tho... well, once I get the man cave built that is :D

    *does a happy dance* The back of the tee-shirt is wicked! I ordered two for my husband and I. And yeah, that artwork is awesome. I don't have a place to put it yet but I order it too.
    Oh yeah, YFI, the largest Tee-shirt is already sold out. Maybe they'll get more in for those that need em.

    It's a heavy weight stock. The standard is to weigh 500 pieces of paper to see what the total weight is. So 500 pieces of this litho, before printing, is 100#s.

    Meaning that the lithograph will weigh 1/5 of a pound, maybe closer to a quarter-pound if the lithographic paints/inks are pretty hefty.

    Let's hope it isn't as 'successful' as the new Despise. In which case I'd rather it be a crappy poster that I didn't have to buy, at least then my hopes for something good wouldn't be stamped down yet again.

    Looks like I was right.

    If Juka face and text " Ultima Online" were missing, I could never guess the image has something to do with UO. * Or maybe I could? It is difficult to say without BEING ABLE TO PROPERLY SEE THE PAINTING I AM SUPPOSED TO PAY 65 dollah+shipping.
    Also, 1997-2012 is something you read on tombstones, not birthday cards.

    *To be fair same goes for the famous much loved Hildebrandt print too(my profile) Now that I'd love to buy in litograph btw.

    When it comes to the shirt... That 15 Anni logo. I keep wondering about wether the intentions of the 15th anniversary Dragon towards UO logo are all that honorable and wether what they are doing is consensual or not. Perhaps it is suble anti-EA critique?:p

    ...Sorry to troll about some, concept of having to pay 65 bucks for painting not even available for proper view made me all sour! But I'm okay again don't worry!

    Aye - it's Richard Garriott spontaenously combusting after seeing what has become of his once beautiful creation.

    Seriously, a poster and a (frankly crap looking) T-Shirt, seems to me a terrible shame that something that has survived as UO has for fifteen years and still keeps going deserves something a little more respectful than that, and I think the faithful playerbase deserve much much more (and I'm not really including myself in that, though I was there at the start).

    Shadowlord?

    UO 15th Anniversary Puzzle Key | The Crossroads

    I don't remember seeing the face of a Shadowlord directly in the Ultima games, but the hood, the eyes, the humanoid appearance would lean towards it. Plus the Shadowlords were in UO.

    #7 seems to be a Shadowlord.
    Your take on #14 seems to be correct, but I can't help but picture human version of Lord Blackthorn when I look to him.

    Personally, I think they have the 3 races at the middletop , since they are the playable races in game. (Garg, Human, Elf). Also, I do believe 5 looks more like a Platinum Dragon than a Stygian Dragon.

    Aye. Looks more like the female version of the Stranger/Avatar. The sword they're holding is pretty similar, and then there's the ankh...

    This was posted along with RG's memborable moments.


    Richard also mentioned the death of Lord British but he was sure that everyone has heard that story. We have and we made it part of the art work. In honor of that moment we give you another puzzle piece - to complete the burning Lord.

    Sill undecided about buying the lithograph. $65 is worth a limited edition lithograph in my opinion, but not sure where I'd hang it being so large. I would like to say THANK YOU for making it a standard frame size though. Having to get it custom framed would have been painful.

    Eric Polak is a name I'm very familiar with given how much I've played D&D, deadlands, etc over the years. Nice choice.

    Love the t-shirt, but I don't wear white. If they had a black version, I'd probably hop right on that. I would also like to see a travel mug or coffee mug with the shirt graphics. It would be something I could use AND enjoy.
