Update 273


  • Daily Event System Updated: Can now use the [DESNotice command to tell the system you do not wish to see notice gumps from it. At the moment there is just 1 from Power Hour but this will probably expand and cover additional notices in the future. [DESNotice <Nothing|True/Yes|False/No> This works for all chars on the account.
  • MarketPlace Updated: Expanding slot managament (Should be working now, will clear the daily market info from the account when adding new slots.)

  • Vecna Corruption Dice Added: You get to use Vecna Coins to pay for a chance to alter the Daily Task Goal (Prior to completing a task for the day) or lower the delay on a task if used after a task has been completed for the day. (Chance!! because if the results will not favor you, you gain nothing but still pay for the roll). The cost to roll is randomly determined, both coin type and amount, after each roll the next cost will change. (Currently just Iron, Copper and Bronze Vecna Coins). Luck and the higher coin values do have an effect on the end result. (This is in testing, I will probably just lock down at brit bank for the time being)

Update 285 Craft System


To say the least this was a massive update, 2 new systems completely unique to UO. Aspects of designing, solving and coding has been in progress for over 3 years working towards updating the flaws of crafting and bring modern play mechanics to a 20 year old game. The key thing is without forcing or removing the original points of UO that many have come to love.

We will not be removing the existing craft system that involves runic tools but instead based on what you desire to craft and create will determine what system is best for you. The New Craft system will allow players to easily access many unique features of Evolution and complete against players during events.

This weekend/Week/Month myself and staff will be testing different things and bringing them online. First will be the Mother's Day event, we have some new deco for rewards plus some very critical components to the recipe craft system that you will need as you explore the new systems. Then as we test new components the reward tables will be updated (No restarted needed if things are approved). If we need to do an update to resolve an issue I will usually wait until the next morning. My goal is to move this along as fast as possible while not interfering with playing. I hope everyone enjoys

  • Today System Added: Currently only has 1 event (Taming) but once this is tested more event types will be added. Not only can you earn rewards by doing the event but addition rewards by competing against other players and being a top finisher. Plus has helpful information and easy access to other custom systems. You will see it at logon and can access by the command [today
