    Anyone know who Gerold Tiggins is? I saw a grave with a grave stone with his name on it.. Just thought maybe someone had an idea.

    He was the director of Content and Game Balance. He died about the time AOS came out, which explains a lot.

    Thanks for the info.. I figured he was someone special to UO. Thats the first time I have seen a headstone with a name on it.

    He must have died before AOS cause powerscrolls/runics destroyed UO's original system leading to AOS.

    "Tiggins turned around just in time to catch a glimpse of an axe sweeping through the air, the light from his lantern glinting off its edge, just before it cut into his old, tired body. The last thing he saw before the darkness closed in was the face of the lizardman holding the axe. A face that had already forgotten Tiggins, and was staring beyond him in fascination at the Mystic Sword still half embedded in the dungeon wall."

    sooo
    what is the rest of the story .. stuff to do .. where is this sword and new vein ?

    i ran into that headstone to and wondered what it was about, but i was trying to figure out teh secret area's .. behind swamp/acid ele area
    and the other one by titan's

    The story was a preview for the Despise invasion of Britain of early 2005. Mystic weapons spawned on invading creatures. It's all old stuff...
