Armor Choice

As with all things in Ultima Online there’s an element of ‘give and take’ in selecting the right armor for your character. Crafted suits of armor may conform to a particular style, while characters who choose to build a suit from monster loot are more likely to select an item for the magical properties and resistances it offers, resulting in a mix of styles. Mages, Necromancers & Spellweavers The choice here appears relatively simple, these skills need mana to cast and the most obvious way to replenish that mana is through meditation skill. Armor made from, or containing metal or […]

Dungeon Chests

  Amost everyone who has been to a dungeon in Trammel or Felucca will have noticed the chests, crates and barrels stacked neatly against the walls or scattered around the floors. Most of them are permanent fixtures, ie static chests and will always be found in exactly the same location, never moving or vanishing; but some are ‘spawning chests’ which come and go at intervals. These chests are widely used for the training of the skills Lockpicking, Detect Hidden and Remove Trap. Static Chests Some are never locked. Others are and may have up to three traps, depending on how […]

By EM Malachi As they waited for the parade to start, an old man and a mouse shared a plate of cookies. Mythran carefully bit into the sweets and considered the crowd around him. The sun warmed his face, and he felt more happiness than he had in years. He began laughing. The small mouse looked up, startled, her whiskers covered with crumbs. “Are you all right?” Mythran smiled at her. “Just remembering a story my mother told me long ago.” Sherry nibbled on a chocolate chip. “Would you tell it to me?” Mythran sat back in his chair. “When […]

Battle of the Shattered Obelisk

By EM Malachi “Any requests?” asked the bard as he tuned the strings on his lute. Even at the bustling war camp in East Side Park, enough were off duty that Iolo had drawn a crowd. A young recruit requested the song Stones, and Iolo frowned slightly but nodded. Testing his lute one final time, he settled into the tune and started singing: “Long ago ran the sun on a folk who had a dream And the heart and the will and the power: They moved earth; they carved stone; moulded hill and channeled stream That we might stand on […]

Family Squabbles

By EM Malachi “Do we have a compact?” asked the wind. The mountain rumbled in disinterest. He had already started playing with the dead things buried on this new world. The remaining two, the fire and the sea, glowered at each other. It was clear that they had some disagreement. Stratos considered for a moment before asking, “What is the problem?” “Only the same problem we always have: incompetence. Why don’t you ask the Lord of Flame how he failed to capture one human?” Hydros scoffed. The flames on Pyros’s daemonic face grew hotter. “He is lucky to be alive. […]
