    Something evil lurks at CoD

    Thursday, October 29, 2009
    By EMSeppo

    While most travelers to the lost lands shrug it off as an old ranger’s myth, the few brave adventurers who have dared to enter the City of Dead on Hallow’s eve would tell you that the place reeks of more wrong than its usual.
    Even fewer, however, have seen and lived to tell about the terror that awaits within the walls of the fort that lies within the city. For it is within these walls, the terrifying spirit of Orc Shadow Chieftains is said to roam on this day of the dead.
    While the only thing more mysterious than the spirits is perhaps their history, some say that long before the dead infested these city, even before the savages took hold of the fort, the city of the dead might have been an orc outpost. A terrible fate must have then doomed these orcs for these spirits continue to roam the city to these day on Hallow’s eve, exacting revenge on all who trespass into their lost territory.
    Yet, it is also rumored that great rewards await the ones who might slay these spirits, if such a thing were to be possible. So, each Hallow’s eve seekers of thrill and treasure travel to this old outpost of the orcs. Most come back with only long tales of their near-death experience fighting the spirit, but few will come face to face with the the chieftains. None have returned with even a single trinket that made them any richer though.
    So, this Hallow’s eve will you dare to venture into the old lands, fending off others like you who might rather slit your throat than share the treasure, to seek out the truth of this matter and perhaps, slay a chieftain or two?
    Event Announcement

    Where: Delucian Orc Fort, located in the City of the Dead
    Facet: Felucca only
    How: The chieftains are rumored to show only when the fort is occupied by no less than 5 people.
    When: The strongest chance of summoning the chieftains is between 8-11 AM, 2-5 PM, 9-12 PM (PST) – but beware, the spirits do not always heed to the mortals. October 31st.
    Statutory warning: This event is in Felucca, which means that you are likely to be subjected to player versus player combat. PvP is not only allowed, but encouraged.
    Additional notes: To make things slightly more interesting, a lantern “Spirit Detector” has been placed at the Yew Felucca moongate. The lantern may turn red for 15 minutes right after the chieftain comes into play. But as is the case with devices, you cannot expect them to always function properly. Also, keep in mind, that the chieftain will not come out till no less than 5 people occupy the fort.

    That was a blast, a full day of PvP fun. Thanks to everyone who participated and big thanks to EMs for having the intuition and perception to create an event for the Fel side of UO and those that log on to PvP. However I think the EM running the 3-6pm event was either a bit overzealous or perhaps had his "spawn new monster" button stuck because the spawn was out of control! hah!

    And a 1am PST surprise visit by EM Seppo at Luna bank was interesting...
  5. So, what (if anything) did everyone get from this event? I did manage to get an orange spider web ... even with all of those "evil" SI trying to kill me :)
