    While our final preparations for the Anniversary Party here in Fairfax are on their way, we would like to take a moment and encourage all of you who will join us next Saturday to show up in costumes.
    We'll hold a costume contest and the best male and female costumes will win to games from the EA Store.

    If you can't make it to the party, here is something else to keep you busy:

    The puzzle.. What we can see:
    Left to right, top to bottom, as of 9/21:

    A1: Virtuebane, having cleaned the humble pie off his horns
    D1: Human male, Elvin female...most likely to represent the playable races. Expect a gargoyle to appear in C1.
    E1: The Slasher of Veils
    B2: Doppelgänger Blackthorn, Mondain, AoS necromancer or Shadowlord
    D2: The Stranger
    C3: The Shattering of the Gem of Immortality, possibly Dawn's arm and leg
    F3: Minax, and a part of Exodus
    E4: Chief Paroxysmus, Lady Melisande's fingers.

    What I want to know is Are they going to call it the 15th Anniversary Collectors Edition/Collection or come up with something creative?

    I just sense a re-hashing of the eighth anniversary release with a new item or two.

    I really hope this artwork is by TheGrimmOmen, with all do respect to the new artist, or a 3rd party artist somewhere in the world, for reasons I can explain but won't, it will mean more than a bunch of random old artwork combined if this has a TheGrimmOmen signature on it.

    Thrakkar,

    The piece in the bottom row needs to be moved over 3 slots to the right as it contains a part of what is in the piece with Minax.

    I corrected it, but I won't upload a new one until we get some new pieces.

    I've updated the page on Stratics too.
    UO Stratics *New* | Jigsaw Puzzle
    Had to chuckle when I saw the file names. Someone noticed that the previous naming convention told us where to put the pieces. :D

    In mitigation for the late update of the site can I point out that the Herald post is timed at 11.12pm and Bazer's post at 4.04am for me?
    Not sure, but I think that's a spider to the left of Paroxy. Those look like spider legs to me.

    I'm afraid the site has been down for a while, I think the server was being backed up. It's back now

    Zoom in real close and you can tell they are elongated grey humanoid fingers with long nails. Since it is next to another peerless, it is relatively safe to assume the bottom area there will show other peerless. Lady M is grey with elongated fingers in desperate need of a manicure.

    If I was attending, I'd wear a shirt, short pants and boots together with a feathered hat and a surcoat (not sure how I'd find this one without cutting the curtains); and keep shouting "Hear Ye! Hear Ye!" at the entrance, announcing the town hall.

    The good thing is, if I return these pieces back to the store, they might give me a clothing bless deed (it works in Britannia anyways).

    I've been informed that while it doesn't have his signature, it sure has his mark. I don't know how I couldn't see that, but since he worked on Ultima Online for ten years, a good number of characters in this puzzle are already designed or art directed by him.
