We are losing the Magincia invasion

    As the title says, we are losing the invasion. The town is overrun with daemons, the first houses have collapsed and no-one of you bastards is around to stop it.

    Help, damnit!

    Or in other words, my homage to one of the very few events that I liked because I could participate in it without a template to end all templates or having a tamer. Granted, I didn´t even know you could blow building up and therefore got no special rubble, but meh. It was fun, even I could kill stuff and got drops. What more could you want?

    The idea started after the original invasion on a small tower in my castle.

    Then later the main roof of my castle with streets made from mats.

    And yes, it took me quite some time to get the 50 statues in the probably final version on an 18x18.
    It´s located to the west of Luna in the icefields on the mountain on Origin.

    Excellent!

    Now what you need to do is one of two things.

    1. Polymorph yourself into a demon before taking the screenshot.

    2. Same thing, but polymorph yourself into a lizardman. Then rather than calling it Magincia, you can call it Tokyo.

    That´s BRILLIANT.

    *ahem*

    It was a lovely day in Tokyo and Godzirra was happily stomping on things and squishing people as a mysterious gate opened and little red daemons came through the portal. Annoyed by the fact that he wasn´t the only one doing the terrorizing, Godzirra started squishing the little daemons.

    Little did he know, that the portal also changed the reality of his world and all he was doing was working the spawn now. Soon, the boss appeared:

    Finally something other then.

    I want X

    SA and Enhanced vs. Classic.



    Thank you so much for bringing sanity to the pages of UHall.

    Great job!

    Well, to be fair, I did post it in the wrong subsection of the forum. It should go into the homes and castles section. So no wonder it´s none of the normal bickering :D

    And on the subject of original client vs. new one, I did post screenshots from 2D and SA here. Just not KR, cause the deco looks like utter crap there.

    Maybe a mod could move the thread to homes and castles?

    Oh, someone recognized it for what it is supposed to be.

    Yes, another old thread resurrected, mostly because I stumbled across it looking for info about the destruction of Magincia and about died laughing. Don't know how I missed this thread the first time around. Lucksi, do you still have this set up on Origin?

    I will admit I'm not an expert on UO lore. Some days I really struggle to try to make sense out of even recent events. However, I've always been under the impression that Magincia was doomed and would have been destroyed one way or another, either by the developers (e.g., how they destroyed Haven) or by players or monsters as part of an event.

    What I'd like to understand better is how the destruction of Magincia even ties in with the rest of the events we've had in UO beginning with the ophidian invasion in mid-2006 and running up through the opening of the Stygian Abyss. I am literally confused as heck about how it all ties together. Wish I knew of someone who keeps good track of all this stuff and knows how it ties together and what to make of all the apparent loose ends. I've always enjoyed reading the speculation about what certain events or stories might mean and it seems like people don't do that as much anymore. Did all the loose ends get pulled together and tied up in a nice neat bow and somehow I missed it?? LOL
     
  25. Well, I don't care what lore is behind it. Magincia was one of the original towns, and I enjoyed going there. I GM'ed my Tailor in Magincia, and spent a lot of time there.

    The event was fun for people that wanted to pick up uber rare rubble or whatever...but fun is over. The devs need to put it back and do it again (or not...I don't really give a ****) with a new town.

    I suggest Luna...starting with the vendor houses.


    Oh...what? No one wants to destroy the vendor houses? ... Even it means free rare uber valuable garbage to pick up??

    Really?

    (no one bothered to consider the vendor houses that were on the beach in Magincia...did they?)

    I don't care what they do to Luna but they really need to put Magincia back!

    Nah, sorry, closed that account some months ago.

    If they give us customizeable castles, I will build it again in bigger, but until then, I only have my run of the mill castle.

    I've seen some people do some amazing things with multi homes placed close together, making the roofs all seem to be one big scene. Maybe you can do something like that :)
     
  30. Now you need to cast a few fire fields on your "town" and take another screen shot :)

    I play Origin and have seen this house first hand. It was amazing, really cool. I was a little sad when I swung back to check it out again a little while back and it was gone. Of course, most of Icelyn is now gone too :sad4:.

    Makes me wish I had a much much bigger collection of mini house deeds. I know someone who does though. May just have to give him a nudge to put together something like this and make some creative screen shots. I love the idea of using fire fields to burn up the town.

    Some funny people play UO, that's for sure.
     
  34. I lol'd.

    Where do you folks get the time to do this stuff...?

    Whats really amazing is that inside one of those building a tiny Magencian Wizard is recreating the invasion in a table top magical image viewer and sharing it with other wizards all over. The re creation is so accurate that another even tinier wizard is inside that recreation re-creating it again.
