On behalf of the UO Baja News Team I apologize for this delayed report! I hope that this brief report will bring everyone up to date on recent events that have led to Lady Dawn's ascendancy to the throne of Britannia. Lady Dawn and her supporters gathered once again in the cellar in Vesper to prepare a strike into the underground lair of the Shadowlords. According to Lady Dawn, the Shadowlords were preparing to create a new Gem of Immortality. The fierce battle fought by the Crimson Dragons had given Lady Dawn enough time to create a diversion and create an advantage for her warriors. After a moving speech, Lady Dawn opened a portal to the Temple on Fire Island and stood on the Altar. Together with her warriors, Lady Dawn created a means to enter the lair of the Shadowlords. Inside the lair, we faced intense resistance from manifestations of the Shadowlords that haunted every corridor. It seemed like hours before we were close to the chamber that hid the enormous fire ruby and the three Shadowlords themselves: Nosfrentor, Astaroth and Fauleni. The defeat of the three Shadowlords had an additional outcome for the Shadowlords faction, they lost their hidden room! Working together, we separated the Shadowlords from their manifestations, defeating them. After the Shadowlords were dead Lady Dawn took the Fire Ruby from the pedestal. Later the destruction of the fire ruby by Lady Dawn caused Lord Casca to die instantly. The demise of the Shadowlords by Lady Dawn and the destruction of the Fire Ruby transformed our realm overnight by rending asunder Fire Island. Now that the way has been opened to Ter Mur through the volcano on Fire Island vast new lands and possibilities lay before us as Lady Dawn is crowned our Queen!
