    Campaign Promises

    It is not important that you know me or not prior to this election. What is important is what I plan to do after the election. The Trade Deals I am considering are with Society of Clothiers (+1% Resist bump to all resists) or with the Maritime Guild (+2 Hit Point Regeneration) as either Trade Deal will benefit all and not just warrior and other melee based professionals but everyone. After that win or lose I have several events planned. Why win or lose? Because I believe in Ultima Online and this Shard are more important than a governor's seat. I believe in lending a helping hand to new players and providing a supportive environment to fellow veteran players. I’m not going to hold the fun hostage unless I get my way.

    What is my background? This is a question I am frequently asked. I started playing Ultima Online during the second phase of the beta way back when. I mostly notoPKed at the crossroads. I then started Catskills on the day it launched and continued my notoPK ways until I came across of a group of Role Players playing as orcs, they called themselves the Shadow Clan Orcs. Some of them were red so I attacked them. Then they called over some of their undead buddies to help kill me. I eventually got along with them really well. It was fascinating how they played their parts. So I joined them and have been Role Playing ever since. I have Role Played a Guardian worshipping vampire named Dante Darkheart ever since September of 1999. About two years ago the population started dying on Catskills so I made the switch to Atlantic after some friends said some good things about the community. Its been a fun 17 years that I’ve devoted to Ultima Online and I hope for another fun 17 years if we’re lucky.


    Because I am a Role Player many of my decisions are driven out of an In Character (IC) motivation. Furthermore, I firmly believe in keeping the Ultima in Ultima Online. So again I try to do my research from the past single player Ultima games and help that guide many of my decisions as well.

    Many of the events I have planned will be with themed around The Fall of Jhel, a spring time holiday of Jhelom.
    The Fall of Jhel, the day upon which Jhel was slain by the Ancient Wyrm, which coincides with the beginning of spring. Visitors are often curious as to why they would celebrate his death, but to Jhelomites, he was the culmination of their personal ethos, a valiant death in the face of great adversity. Typically there is a large festival, and at the end of the day a great reenactment of the final battle, following the script of The Fall of Jhel, a recently written play.

    History of Jhelom

    The celebration of The Fall of Jhel will be observed in three events throughout the term.

    Fighter Pit Sparring - First will be the Weekly Sparring Events on Thursdays. This will be for new warriors to train against one another as well as veteran warriors to show them how its done. I will have a guild anyone can join called the Library of Scars that will assist in allowing highlight status. Crafters and mages will be welcomed in order to provide healing, arms, and armor to the warriors. This will obviously be held at the Jhelom Fighting Pit.

    Hunting - Second there will be a Monthly hunt on the third Saturday of each month of the term. The first will be a dungeon crawl through Destard (Trammel) in hopes of slaying an Ancient Wyrm or two. The second hunt will be a Cold Blood Champ Spawn in Destard (Felucca). The third hunt will take us to the Cold Blood Champ Spawn in Ilshenar. The meeting place will be the Jhelom Fighting Pit

    Play - The third event will be a play of The Fall of Jhel by the orphans of the Ophiophagus Foundation Orphanage. Leading up to the play will be several acts of skit or song. After the play will be a ball. This will be held at the Jhelom Theater.

    Of course there will be other event not solely tied to The Fall of Jhel. Many of which have already been in place for some time now.

    Tavern Night - I have always made sure the Redrum Casino of Red Fang Pointe is opened and well stocked on Friday nights. Two sources of entertainment will be provided. First will be friendly card games, so be sure to be a few thousand gold for placing bets. The Second source will be a boat race around the three islands of Jhelom and back. This will be held at my personal tavern at Red Fang Pointe.

    Full Moon and New Moon Ceremonies - Full Moon and New Moon Ceremonies these are private events for followers of the Guardian to attend. These are roleplaying events and will be later at night on first and third Sundays of every month. We will be on the look out for new members The location will be made availible by invitation only.

    Haven Fest - Haven Fest will be held on the second Sunday of each month. This has been quite a big hit. It was developed by Sennah (my co-GM) to help new players get used to their new world. So we will continue

    I don't play that much anymore, but I decided to log on stratics after seeing this post. Dante is a fantastic roleplayer and great person over all. Truly deserving of this position. So, as Sennah stated, Vote Dante Darkheart! :D
