“After initially losing funding from the Mage’s Council in Moonglow, progress on the "blackrock detection machine" resumed late last month with government intervention, and is finally nearing completion. Despite fears of the dangers involved in working with the still-mysterious substance, officials agree on the necessity of knowing where it is. Captain Avery, of the militia, made the following statement:"

To read more, visit the Britannia News Network here:

For more information about the event, see below:

Event occurs over two days

* Day One: Do not be concerned if you show up and it all goes up in smoke. Just being there sets the stage for your interactions in Day Two.

o Bring blackrock
o Don’t kick Kronos when he’s down

* Day Two: The experiment is unleashed in full form.

o Bring blackrock.
o Be prepared to be trapped for a little while
o Be prepared to fight
o Be prepared to choose your loyalties


Collectable items that “seem” to have only decorative purpose will have a turn-in, along with the Ophidian items, in Publish 52.

More information, including times for the event on each shard, will be announced tomorrow. Stay tuned!

I expect Europa will wake up and its been and gone as usual ,though.

PLUS....I couldnt see this on UOHerald,then I realised they have a new header which says 'Live Events 2008'.

Was only visible for those using IE though and not Firefox like myself.

It has now been actually put on the UO Main page as so many couldnt see it.

Alright, people. It's Friday. I'm stuck at work, so I expect regular updates from those of you with more spare time!

*head explodes with anticipation*

I presume, since it's Friday and we've finished server maintenance, that something is already happening?

You know, if they'd announce this sooner, I could have taken a day off.

LMAO Merc rules :)

What if you don't have any blackrock to turn in? Does that make this event useless to non-blackrock-holders?

For that matter, where do you get the non-small blackrock? I've been gathering resources steadily since I returned to UO in Dec, and I've found nothing but smalls. Granted, I've got about 20 of them, but still...

I heard rumors that they are spawning in Ilshenar...any confirmation? Are they just showing up randomly on the ground?

They should be on the ground. But I've never found one. Too lazy to keep hitting ctrl-shift while I'm running around.

I'm there right now, nothing's happening yet.

vitriol

noun
1. (H2SO4) a highly corrosive acid made from sulfur dioxide; widely used in the chemical industry
2. abusive or venomous language used to express blame or censure or bitter deep-seated ill will

I'm guessing Kronos is a little bitter...

From the ultima V lore, I imagine we can expect the Shadowlord of Hatred to make an appearance, and the townspeople to start attacking players...

Speculation, but it fits the story as we know it.

Well, the oil of vitriol does burn you if you touch it. And the arcane circle works for a spell weaver focus. Using teleport, you can stand on the runes at the four corners, and even get into the water in the middle. I tried putting blackrock into the vitriol, but can't, and setting the blackrock on the arcane circle does nothing. I tried setting it in the water also, but there were other people around, and didn't want to lose it. I may try casting armageddon soon...

Update: By teleporting onto a rune, one can cast teleport again on the Spike in the center and be sent UNDER the machine. A barren pit, it would seem, atm... Interesting...
