    This is transcribed word for word, including misspellings and other errors, from a book I found at an IDOC a while back.

    Adventuring Log
    Sigmar the Bold

    This is the individual record book of Sigmar the Bold holding battles won and lost and the effort of this character to promote good order and discipline in Britania.

    5 August 1998
    Attacked in the Britan Valley by Unknown "Blue PKs" using the paralyze spell along with energy bolts.

    7 August 1998
    L'luvia, claiming to be the warrior Black's friend claimed his gear to return to him. He was not his friend. Attack on sight. Chest trapper.

    Engaged the scoundrel Eldoroth at the crossroads of Britain. Did moderate damage to the enemy and was forced to retreat into the woods.

    8 August 1998
    Proceeded to track down and attack the individuals who engaged Achilles. These individuals were found, however there were 3 of them and one of me. I was pursued for quite a long distance but escaped with no real problems. Heav X-bows and Paralyze spells (resisted) were the main form of attack used. BORODINO, Chai XIV, and Hooker II were the 3 assailants.

    Two pks, by the names of kanomi and Patsy were engaged by myself and two other hunters in the Yew Valley. These pks were taken near the point of death and escaped.

    10 August 98
    Playing for some last minute time on UO before Korea. Pked by Obsidian. Should have gone to bed.

    I always love books like these.A freind had quit playing UO back in 99 or 2000 and their house went IDOC. One of the things I happened to grab was a book that she and a friend had kept a journal of. As the years went on and on, this book sat in one of my characters bank boxes. About 2008 or 09, she was playing again, and I happened to run into her during an EM event. She asked if I was the same character from a decade ago, and I said yes. Ran to the bank and gave her the book back =). 5 years later, were in touch all the time, and do guild events twice a week. Good memories =).

    I try and maintain a library of books found in IDOCs on Europa, and there's a few other places that do the same; because stories like these, even if you don't share the same gaming interests as the author, are what keep the wider game so interesting... So thanks for sharing this one!
