    I am very excited to bring forward to UO players today a much more in depth look to the upcoming expansion's lore and how you participate in it. Even more exciting is the very first screenshots of the brand new user interface. It certainly brings back the Ultima feel!

    Well, safe to say it won't be that much of a resource hog on lower end machines.
    Nice one.

    Cute. Looks like Ultima Underworld I, if I remember the screens correctly.

    BTW, JC, you need to drop one zero off that check. Or move the comma to the right one space (and then edit your amount in the text). The funding statement is even funnier than the preview of SA.

    But if I do that then I can't cash it. Are they really going to miss $675,000 out of 700,000,000,000? I'll just hold on to it for a couple years and if they don't ask for it I'll put it in my pock......... I mean towards the site.

    Please tell me "got me" means your heart fluttered, clicked on it, and then immediately realized it was a joke....

    And not: "OMFG how did he get these screencaps!!! Oh, wait...Ha ha?"

    PS: Yes, this post is, also, a joke.

    You could in the original, yes.

    An entire colony basically got trapped in the dungeon, so they pretty much "had it all" down there. They even got the mages to doctor the plants to grow without sunlight.

    In fact most of what JC wrote is actually pretty close to the game's plot. For example, with the goblins, you can either set up a treaty of sorts, pit them against each other, or slaughter them all yourself.

    The screencap comments are all far off, though. Both the "lizardman" and the "orc" are actually goblins, and there was no gardening system in the game (though there was one seed well worth planting).

    Note the paperdoll to the side - See how the armor it's wearing actually changes depending on it's condition? I always liked that.
