    A new 3D client based off Kingdom Reborn will be released. It has a working title of simply the "Stygian Abyss client". No mention on whether UO:KR client will be discontinued in preference for the new one.
    Both the Kingdom Reborn and traditional 2D client will be allowed to access the new areas.
    The new dungeon Stygian Abyss will be the largest and most complex UO has ever seen.
    The only way to have a Gargoyle character is to make a new one, at this time a quest to transform a character to the Gargoyle Race is not planned.
    Gargoyles will have the ability of Flight from their wings which will have the movement speed of being mounted. It will be required to access certain areas of the new map. Gargoyles will also have larger stature than humans and elves.
    New areas for Housing have been stated as a possibility in the new land area, but has yet to be decided definitively.
    There will be some pvp areas in the new land area, including access for murderers. It has also been indicated that there will be things to contest for, similar to a Champion Spawn, although it will not be powerscrolls.
    The new lands will be the lored homeland of the Gargoyles, Ter Mur, and include a Gargoyle capital city.
    Crafting Gargoyle items will extensively employ the use of Granite as gargoyles are fond of stone.
    Several of the monsters in the expansion will be based off those seen in the old, single-player Ultima game Ultima: Underworld including Rot Worms, Medusas and Goblins.
    Gargoyles will have their own distinctive belief system that is apart from the traditional Virtues.

    So I got to wipe my current char to be a gargoyle which will give only gargoyles access to certain new areas.

    Indeed, I WILL DO IT! onward to the new master race!

    Penny Les Harlet no longer (will have to have a new gargoyle name)

    You might want to check the date of that information, I think quite a bit of it is no longer accurate.

    Ok, with every change they make I always think, how will this affect pvp (cause they always seem to find a way to screw that up)?

    If Gargoyles can fly, does that mean they can fly above trees so that trees don't block them like birds to now? Or like fly on top of empath abbey?

    If so, then gargoyles become the ultimate pvp toon (in that respect). How can a human or elf ever chase down a gargoyle if a gargoyle can just fly over objects that block humans?

    I'm hoping this is obviously not the case. But if only gargoyles can access certain areas of the map, and humans can not, then that does mean they can fly over blockable objects that humans can not - so there is a possibility.
