    LOL Shame on you Mirage.. I see YOU are still lurking around haha
    I DID try WoW.. started in Sept..ended in November when I capped out at 80. I missed UO..well frankly I missed the PEOPLE here and the harmony, the humanness (is that a word haha) of UO. And yes. I even missed YOU..*grins*
    So instead of you TRYING to get a jeering thread going on here about WoW.. why not welcome me back and give me a hand up ?
  4. Welcome back from your journeys elsewhere! You have returned during interesting times, for certain...

    A short time ago, the entire Royal Council was murdered, and an ambassador known as Casca remained as the sole survivor of the attack. Shortly thereafter, the former ambassador was hailed as the new King of Britannia, his coronation determined by the vote of a newly-elected, secret council.

    Announced by the town criers, Casca gave a speech atop a pedestal at Castle Blackthorn, where he now takes residence, flanked by the Royal Guard. He announced taxation; wars against the Ophidians, the Shadowlords, and the Followers of Armageddon; and removal of city independence. He also claimed a man known as Owain Surrey to be a false prophet, under the influence of the Shadowlords, and indicated Avery, the Captain of the Royal Guard, had been imprisoned, charged with the murder of the Royal Council.

    Many citizens of our shard were outraged, both by his sudden ascension to the throne and his authoritarian and dictatorial tone. Shortly after his speech concluded, none other than Sherry the Mouse appeared, asking questions regarding his legitimacy and qualifications to serve as King.

    Around this time, two Emissaries moved into the Counselor's Guild just outside Castle Blackthorn: Kasaven and Annendora. Kasaven was intimately involved with the stories unfolding above, while Annendora was focused on establishing wedding services for our shard.

    Kasaven told us more of Owain Surrey; apparently, he was a former augur to Lord British whose family was executed by order of Lord Blackthorn, during his submission to the Shadowlords.

    Citizens gathered in the Chamber of Virtue to discuss Casca's rise to power, and the impact his pronouncements would have on our shard's population. When we arrived, we found the Chamber filled by Royal Guards standing silently at attention. In the midst of the meeting, Owain Surrey appeared in the crowd, and was chased by the Royal Guard to the Counselor's Guild, where Annendora was knocked unconscious, and Kasaven was kidnapped by unknown assailants.

    Since then, via books left at the Counselor's Guild in Britain and various conversations, Surrey has revealed the following:

    - The secret council, who appear to hold office underground, are using Casca as a puppet.

    - Kasaven is being held somewhere underground, where two statues facing south are present. Later comments by Owain indicate he has not explored Covetous, Destard or Deceit (Covetous' third-level entrance is known to have two statues facing south).

    - The last message indicated a strike force would be assembled around Valentine's Day to rescue Kasaven.

    On February 1st, a wedding between Va'lis Razele and Melina Gerson was held by Emissary Annendora. At the conclusion of the event, she announced the Robed Ones had assigned her to a new shard, and that she would be leaving shortly, to be replaced by a man named Cerrneous.

    For more information about ongoing events, please join the newly-established Sosarian Communication Network! We send out notices as soon as we hear news relevant to our shard, and it's quickly becoming a great way to stay informed. You can connect by contacting myself, Solomon Wright: 441758722

    Your questions here do represent the need for a resource that compiles all of this information into a single location. More to follow along those lines in the coming days...

    Again, welcome back! I hope to make your acquaintance along the way, my friend...

    -Solomon Wright, Sosarian Monk

    hey I am thrilled to have her back. I missed Lady Mystyka. Plus on Friday night hunts it was her and Anne that kept me alive or ressed me, when I would rush into a fight without thinking. I know I have been wearing Anne out without Mystyka around. :D

    My advice (and take it for what it is worth, pretty much nothing :) ) would be this: dont spend to much time looking at the doom and gloom posts that seem to litter uhall.
    My own return a couple of months ago saw me questioning if I was wasting my time because I read so many of those posts... a lot of people are predicting the end, and a lot of people are complaining that its all falling apart. I found out later that some of the people dont even play anymore, and just keep coming back to the forums to complain. Also, when I stop to think about it, there were always people who seemed to only like to post negative things, even wau back when.

    So my advice would be to just enjoy yourself. There seems like there is a very good story arc occurring right now, and personally... I decided to not worry about who should be nerfed, who is allegedly speed hacking and what things the developers should be doing and just have fun.

    Your mileage may vary... :D

    Hey Myst, you'll have to travel to Atlantic to see my new bank roof. Hehe.

    That's where I be mostly..

    Thats the trouble with forums - the only people posting there are doing so because they have some sort of complaint. the people who are perfectly happy with the game are...playing it.

    Best way is to read the shard forum - and hang around in Luna or New Haven.
