Strange, Grey Power Crystals in the Underworld?

Discussion in 'UO Great Lakes' started by SororityGirl1913, Dec 30, 2009.

  1. So I've been noticing these for a while, and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what they are/were for.

    Throughout the underworld I've noticed at least 3 grey power crystals. Each one is stuck on the spot and, when scrolled over, bears the name of a reagent and 2 letters. The easiest one to spot is seen in the human entrance to the abyss, after the cannons and before you reach the yellow npc.

    The other two that I have noticed are by the goblins. One is on the west side of the room with the goblin floor traps that leads to the tangling roots and the other is directly outside the puzzle room.

    I play on a few other shards and I haven't seen these crystals there.

    So, anyone know what they're for?

    Em event items
    they are/were used for a coded message
    each letter in the alphabet has 2 regs
    messages are left in regs then are decoded
    coded messages are clues as to where to go
  3. Thanks Harloff! That's what I figured : ).

    Do you know if the EM event they are associated with already happened or not?

    Assuming I am remembering the event correctly, it depends on your point of view.

    But basically that particular event is done.

    It related to a particular scheme of a demonic, undead group known as the Cult of Styx.

    This scheme, an attempt to unleash a demonic disease upon Yew, was defeated.

    The cult, however, remains about.

    EM Malachi's events, wherein the characters work for the Royal Spymaster Magnus Gray, are held on most Tuesdays, 9pm Eastern.
