After i joined UO last year i came here. I left UO because of what i heard about Richard Garriot (AKA Lord British) I thought he abandoned the game he made Tabula Rasa when NC soft posted a letter about him leaving and the game will be shutting down febuary 28th 2009. So me and a bunch of players of that game was angry at him because we thought he used the game for a fund for him to go into space. so i left his games completely. but to find out he was in space at the time the letter was written and when he got back he claimed he did not say he was leaving. He was forced from NC soft to leave the company. Richard Garriot is sueing NC soft for 27 million and for the rights of his game back.

So as i am no longer angry at him. Im coming back to the game.

Well also Garriott hasn't been involved in UO for a long time now. I don't think he even gets royalties anymore, but I could be wrong on that.

Wow, that's taking it pretty personally, altho he left UO almost a decade ago. There's a faint rumor he is interested in somehow coming back due to a Facebook post recently.

welcome back to UO :)

If RG did come back, what would he say about all the additions since he left. Ninjas? Elves? WTF?? (Though SA is going back to the true Ultima storyline, between U5 and U6.)

Though oddly, he's got the unfortunate effect of whenever he appears in public, someone tries to kill him now. (ehehehe, TR beta :) )

Of course you could also say Mondain's Legacy went back to Ultima 3 when Elves and other races were a part of Ultima. I always wondered why people were so adamant against elves. The whole, they're too generic argument didn't really work because, well, orcs and dragons are just as generic, so should we get rid of them? hehe.

Welcome back Konner. What shard do you play?

I liked Ultima 3...it was a fun game (and the first Ultima that I ever played). But I don't really consider pre-Ultima IV to be part of the lore. Also, the elves as implemented in ML are just annoying as crap. Also, I liked UO as a single-race game -- the 'race card' is way overplayed in RPGs in general. And if there *was* going to be a second playable race, it really should have been gargoyles from the start, since they've been a pretty central part of Ultima lore. Also, UO elves are really ugly. Also, Legolas. Legolas!

This anti-Elves rant was brought to you by Elvvsoil -- naturally formulated from 13 kinds of elves to keep your engine running clean!

like ultima isn't generic? the whole thing is basically your cookie-cutter medieval fantasy world. But I agree that gargoyles make more sense.

Trouble with elves is that 95% of UO have never even read about Ultima before U4. I didnt get the chance to play 1-3, but I did do some reading about them.

Say what you want Elves did make it interesting just like the Gargoyles are going to make SA interesting. I think the Great RG will keep them going and with his interest in space he might make a Ultima in Space Expansion.

No telling what is going to happen just have to wait and see.

And as for the "I hate this expansion" people. You can't make everyone happy all the time so make the majority happy and keep on keeping on.

Maybe they could make Terathans and Ophidians the next player races in some future expansions and have them perma-flagged on each other.
