White Council Public Forum / Home again
December 16, 2019, 10:08:24 pm
I am back home again.  It rained all the 6 hours we drove. Some places it poured.  We didn't see any accidents in all of the messy weather.  Temps kept dropping and settled around 42 when we got there.  Saturday was nice but on the chilly side.  It was a smallish graduation ceremony at Limestone College, in South Carolina.  Our grand niece graduated with a degree in Musical education. My brother in law and his son and daughter in law drove down from NJ so it was nice seeing them again. The party at the house Sat night was really nice.  Emma had friends coming in and a lot didn't leave until about 2am that next morning.  I am not sure how many came over but it was a house full.  Ed and I left about 9pm and went back to the motel.   Found out the next day when we went over the kids ate all the food my niece prepared.

Pulled pork (2 pork loins) and some spicy macaroni and cheese.  Ziti noodles cooked then added to that was alfredo sauce, rotel mild chillys and it was delicious.  Plus all of the snacks she had. 

The weather was great coming home today.  Saw 2 accidents, go figure, rain one day nothing and nice clear weather and saw 2.   

Off for dinner in a few  I will be on later..

White Council Public Forum / Test Keep
October 22, 2018, 06:10:33 pm
 I have placed and built a keep on test.   The location is in Fel where the Gilfane Auction house is now.  You should not have any problem finding it. 

So far they haven't given out any reward points to get a lrc suit from the turn in guys, so when you go there grab your reagents out of the bank.

Not really.

Next Wednesday Artful and I will be heading to NJ for a visit.   He decided again to drive but this time we will be taking 3 days to get there instead of 2.

Sometime after that we will be heading to NY to pay a visit to Branwyn.

We will be back around Oct 4.
to build a keep and castle?

Well for the keep it was about 5.  The lower floors weren't any problem, but it seemed the higher you got and more tiles and walls put up it did.  The keep cost a bit over 1,300 mil gold.  It is located in Tram, East of Skara where our Gilfane Museum sits    928, 2322.

The castle 10 times as many crashes.  It is located in Malas between the brigand camp and the stable in Old Gilfane.   927 1260.  Go take a look at them.  I believe Bleak said the voting starts next week and runs for a week.  You will vote at the Brit commons in Britain on a stone.

I am not sure how that will work yet.   

Leawyn, Amber Witch and Joline have spots they are working on also there.

Leawyns is in Cove Tram and Joline is located in the Trinsic Swamp in Tram.

White Council Public Forum / Email from EM Kincaid
January 30, 2018, 03:35:33 pm
EM Kincaid sent an email to me after the void pool.  He has given me permission to post it here.  I had been contacting him about the EM House when I was building it, so he had my email address.    I loved his cheerleader outfit.


To everyone who was involved, well done!

I have to admit, I almost missed it. I wasn't 100% certain which weekend you were going for, and only found you folks when I was doing my usual "what's going on around Siege" patrol! I'm glad I did.

I hope my cheerleader outfit wasn't too distracting, or that anyone will take my presence there as "Oh, you only got that far because of your EM". If accusations like that start flying, I sincerely apologise, and will certainly refute them. I am SO happy that Siege achieved what it did 100% on player-effort, without any intervention from me at all.

Take that, Asuka!

I want to update the shields outside the VP and at Brit Bank, but I think this should be a proper ceremony, not just a "pop in and change the values" thing. And, I've learned a bit since the last time! To avoid PK problems, I'll either advise everyone to go as ghosts, or in minimum gear that they don't fear losing.  The bulk of the ceremony will take place at Britain Bank.

If you could let me know a date and a time that would suit the majority of the people who were involved, that would be great, and I'll arrange the ceremony for that time.

I could also do with the following info:

Number of waves : I think this was 276, but please let me know!

Time taken : I have no idea!

Total participants : I counted 19 of you there, but some people were running around, and there were monsters, and pets, and... I give up.

High Scorer : The Best Single Battle scoreboard shows Az at 168395 - but I'll leave you to confirm this.

And, of course, by "you" I mean "Siege's players" - please don't think I'm dumping all of this on you, personally. It's simply that you've been my main contact on VP-related things! :)

And please pass on my congratulations to everyone who was there.

I hope you all had fun!

Well it finally cam past us.   I'm in Jacksonville, Fl.  News reports kept saying it was barreling up the coast but it was more pokey than barreling. 

Last night we lost power for about 10 hours.  Guess we were one of the luckier ones.   My son is down in Hastings and hes been out since yesterday at 8am.  Since hes in the boonies no telling when it will come back on.  Country means no elec and no water since they have a well, which means a pump to run it. 

My daughter lives just north of me (30 min.  They are near the Trout River and just barely out of area A for flooding so they went to Ga to her in-laws.   Since the in-laws have a dog they left their cat with us.   Shes about 14 years old so is no trouble at all.   

Its sunny with some clouds here today and still a little wind.   We had stronger winds last night than before it came through.   Anyway   I'm still here and didn't get blown away.     ;D

I received this today.  Not sure who all it was sent out to but here it is.

We are happy to announce the next publish will be early March.  In this publish we will have new quest content , bug fixes, and new art.  We've included some questions and answers that we have encountered in our Meet and Greets on each shard along with some of the more common questions players are asking Customer Service.

The team is very excited about changes upcoming this year and we will give more details in our next newsletter and on, so stay tuned!

For everyone that has a house that is ten or more years old and wants to join the Ultima Online Historical Housing Society, please contact me at

On a side note, we would like to congratulate the Syndicate on celebrating its 20th year milestone as a guild!  If any other guilds have an upcoming major anniversary please let me know so we can share the accomplishment with the rest of the Ultima Online community.  It's organizations like this that help keep our community going strong.  Thanks to everyone for the support!

We wish everyone a Happy Valentines Day and thank you for playing UO!

A Valley of One

This spring we will continue the exploration of the Valley of Eodon!  Many adventurers have visited the Valley, seeking to profit from its bountiful resources.  The indigenous peoples of Eodon have not taken kindly to the Britannian invasion, yet a larger and more sinister threat is on the horizon.  This Spring join us as we further encounter with the Tribes of Eodon and we find out the answer to an important question, what will it take to gain their trust? 

An excerpt from the journal of Professor Ellie Rafkin,

The dim light from the campfire flickered against the canvass tent.  In the still of night the jungle was alive with the howls of monkeys and the singing of crickets.  A gentle breeze rustled the fronds of nearby palms.  Even though it had been months since I'd left the Lycaeum, the jungles of Eodon still made me uneasy.  I had seen such beauty in the Valley during my time here.  Brilliant fauna gave Eodon character and intimacy.  Meandering streams cutting through the verdant landscape made it feel alive and fertile.  In the distance the towering caldera of a great volcano smoked confidently, owing to its wise past.  On the surface, Eodon appeared inviting and warm, but a foreign and present danger lay hidden beneath. 
     I had been fortunate enough to only encounter the Myrmidex once.  A gleam of sunshine had caught my eye, the reflection from their chitonous exoskeleton.  Before I could focus on what I was seeing my escort let out a bellowing war cry and brought his axe down in front of me.  The axe cut through the air and landed squarely in the thorax of the Myrmidex warrior.  Greenish hemolymph oozed from the wound as the creature struggled and writhed.  I tried to turn away but my curiosity drew me in.  The creature was large, nearly twice the size of a man, insectoid in appearance with elongated, jointed appendages.  The unmistakable crimson of blood spattered a set of pincers protruding from the head.  As I moved closer to get a better look my escort cleaved his axe through the air once more, this time decapitating the beast.  More greenish ooze leaked from the creature's neck and pooled onto the jungle floor. 
     I had not seen a Myrmidex since that day.  I would come to learn the Myrmidex were a mostly subterranean species, coming to the surface only on occasion to hunt for food to return to the hive.  Eodon was full of surprises and each day was rich with discovery.  Such work had made me tired, a welcome benefit as it made it easier to fall asleep and assuage my unease.  Just as I felt my mind begin to drift to the land of nod the jungle fell silent.  Seconds later a chilling scream echoed throughout the Valley...

Question & Answer Corner

1. Can you fix items that are stackable that won’t go on a vendor after a transfer?

This has been fixed in the upcoming publish.  All stackable items that are not vendorable will be reverted.  It is much easier to handle this issue via a global fix than trying to do each piece separate.

2.  Why was the loot in shame nerfed in publish 86.3, why is loot on unbound EVs not as good as it used to be?

The global loot changes normalized the distribution of loot across all creatures in game, and made the generation of higher end items more randomized.  Factors such as mob difficulty and luck will produce an intensity range from which items are created.  As items increase in intensity, the likelihood those items will get a negative property applied increases. 

3.  Is it possible to add “Granite Only” to shovels.

We will be adding a granite only option to shovels in Publish 92.

4. Is it possible to add stained glass windows?

After speaking to the artists this is doable, we can give the glassblowers the option to make a single or multi tile stained glass window that players can dye.

5. Can we remove the lack of cohesion timer from resurrecting pets?

For those players that have the veterinary skill, the resurrection timer is ten seconds.  For non-veterinary pet resurrections, the timer is 10 minutes.  We think that an appropriate middle ground would be to allow instant resurrection of pets that fall below a certain power threshold.  This would allow players to immediately reclaim low level pets (such as mounts) while still giving some benefit to the investment in the veterinary skill for higher level pets.  We look forward to feedback on this proposed change.

6.  Can you adjust enchanted apples to remove more than one debuff at a time?

Changes to enchanted apples are currently in the pipeline and are being evaluated for balance by QA, we hope to have a change to enchanted apples in Publish 92.  Be sure to check them out on Test Center and provide us your feedback!

7.  When will gargoyles be given the chance to get the 5% mining bonus?

We will be adding the ability to exchange current mining bonus gloves for an equivalent gargoyle item in Publish 92.

White Council Public Forum / L*H Haunted House
October 02, 2015, 01:22:56 am
Sarah of the L*H Guild has her Haunted House again this year. She has placed it in the Trinsic Swamp on the north side on the water.

There are tons to see and a maze to get through. If you reach the top there is a free gift. If you say the magic word.

There are runes at Gil Vendors in Zento and Vernia Market in Magincia.
Tele tiles are located at the Umbra Hub and The Citadel in Gilfane across from Skara Brae.

We are trying to get a moongate set up from the West Britain Bank to the house.

Come one come all and challenge the maze.

There is now a moongate to the house from the West Britain Bank.

I will be around until the 16th off and on and busy packing.  Winter stuff.
