"Magnus acervus erit"

The actual meaning of this phrase is lost without context. This is part of a proverb with religious overtones, the entirety of which is:

"Adde parum parvo, magnus acervus erit"

Literally translated: "Add a little to a little and there will be a great heap."

Often used when discussion loaves and fishes...

~M

When I read these things, I tend to think of the Ori, from Stargate...
They were pretty big on quoting scripture.

Anyway, if you take context from their actions; not-entirely-overwhelming numbers attacking a few cities...
I think it is some kind of self-confident rhetoric... The current invasion is not everything that they have to offer, in effect.

I found this website-blog, it has a few more (spoilers) images of the invasion:
¡ÚUO¡Û¥¦¥ë¥Æ¥£¥Þ¥Þ¥Ë¥¢ - livedoor Blog¡Ê¥Ö¥í¥°¡Ë

If the stats here hold, tamed Dread Horses have:

615 HP
112 STAM
122 INT
534 STR
112 DEX
122 INT

71/20/26/56/40 resists
40/0/0/20/40 damage
20-26 base on hit

No poisoning (---) and no skills above 100 when tamed. I can't translate the possible pack instinct.

On Origin, Luna has a town crier. On Chesapeake, I don't see any. Do we have to invest in one of those silly rats to know the news now? ;P NM found one at Skara Brae...hm

I am on Origin and have been trying to turn in my spring cleaning tickets that I accumualted right after the published Origin with the patch, but the chest will not take them anymnore. When I try and place the ticket in the chest it just jumos back in my backpack. Anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know if these tickets are transferable between accounts and shards?

I wonder if there's a problem with the box? Maybe that's why the shards just getting the publish don't have it at all.

You do not need to drop tickets in the chest, you need to double click the chest to bring up the donation menu.

Tickets can be given to anyone you like.

Has anyone tried joining a faction, and then attacking these things? Maybe there's some added damage "slayer-like" bonus for being in a faction??

for those on Europa you can join the True Britannians by double clicking the faction post outside brit castle fel. We could do with loads of help, but be warned if you are in factions you can not be helped by anyone not in your faction, ie no in lor, no rez, no passing of pets etc. This is a broken part of factions I hope they sort it soon as its ment tho only be that way in fel. To get a rez you get someone from your faction or a NPC to rez you. (True Britannians are not the only faction availible of course, but I'm bias)

Someone else on your shard swears it was intended to be that way, because you are all tougher than the rest of us, and those of us who want it to be different are all Trammies.

Or words to that effect. I am actually imposing far more coherence on her thoughts than she had.

*chuckles, shrugs*

I had to put her on ignore on Stratics....Wasn't the first time she'd said something insulting and incoherent.

trying to check this out on UO.com, as for being tougher than others the guild I am in is True Brittannian Trammies and as the name sinifies we are all blues and true trammies giving factions a try for the first time.

hey Flame I found out this to work...

team of two... teach them to make a bandage partner macro with a 2000 pause (UOA)... and repeat that 5 times... set a key to it and stay together.

Our roleplaying archers fought UP (pirates) and they razed the strumpets...
They stood together, healing eachother 5 times while doing the basic pvp tactics and uoa running the heals on the background. (each one was responsible for their own cures... and now they know how to fight a peerless... :eusa_clap:)

ok heres what I based my understanding on from ORIGIN - Ultima Online - Playguide

NON-PARTICIPANTS
Characters who are not in a faction will not be able to perform beneficial acts (such as healing, curing, etc.) on non-criminal or murderer characters in a faction if the target has received lawful damage from another player. The status of being lawfully damaged by someone (on someone that is attacked) is cleared when they reach full health. For example, if Player A was in the Shadowlord faction and was attacked by player B in the Council of Mages faction, this is considered lawful damage and player A would have the "lawfully damaged by" status. Players outside of a faction will still be able to attack a character in a faction, but can receive a murder count if they do so (unless other systems allow this attack, such as guild wars).


My understanding is that you cannot get help from others during an attack, and got the impression that if you were not under attack you could recieve aid, I am willing to accept I could be understanding this wrong. So I recommend anyone considering joining factions to check the playguide out on uo.com as it could cause some issues for charecters and seeing as it takes 3 days to ressign from a faction its not something to try lightly just to see if it makes a difference in the vanguard situation.

Sorry for confusing you.....

You know the thing where Factioners can't be healed or rezzed by other players, the thing that you suggest is a bug?

I have been trying to get that changed, or fixed, for years.

One of several Stratics posters who opposes my proposal is a lady who claims to be in Factions on Europa. Not only does she disagree that it was a bug, but she says stuff along these lines: "You, Galen, think Factioners should be healed in Trammel because you just want to sit at the bank on a Faction horse. You Trammie wimp, us tough! Roar!!"

Eventually I got sick of it, and put her on ignore.

'Twas all...That's the whole story.

:)
