Let's see what desktops of UO players look like! Mine:

"It isn't over. Your footprints will never fade from Britannia. You shaped
a world of rich treasures and virtuous character. Children who idolized
you have grown into men and women who seek to walk your path.
That's your legacy, Lord British. It's a marvelous thing."

He did? That's really very unfortunate. I had no idea...

But yeah, Tim and Greg Hildebrandt did that piece for the original release of UO. It served as the box art and also came as a print in the limited charter editions of the original release, signed by the artist brothers. It can be seen today in-game as the Tapestry of Sosaria (7th Anniversary gift). I've even seen that huge dragon creature as a tattoo on someone years ago at the Texas Renaissance Festival. Pretty impressive piece it is.

Siobhan... thats a great Phoenix... I think.. it's lovely anyway. Several interesting ones. I find it fascinating the amount of icons and what the icons are, that everyone has. It's like when I see a picture in a magazine with books and bookshelves.. I always have to try to see the titles. :)

Haven't taken a shot at my desktop lately. Guess that could be a plan soon.

Here is my current one, I really like this one thought it is from WoW. Of course you all know I LOVE ships / boats whatever they maybe... I just like the fact I can see a shipwreak in this screenshot and how the light can actually reach the bottom and show that ship far away. I was in sea lion form at the time on my druid

Someone asked for my wallpaper image so I thought I would post it here incase someone else would like it.

Oh and I altered it to fit 1027x768 as requested.

For those that don't know it is the artwork from the Ultima 5 box depicting the Avatar defending a wounded Shamino from the Shadow Lords.
original art work copyright Origin systems, Inc. alterations to the image copyright the little voices in my head that told me to do it!
