UO: Mission Impossible Cartoon Contest! Winner Announced!!

Recommended Posts

It’s time to use your creativity and create a UO comic!


Here's the concept: Simply submit a UO EA_Mythic: Mission Impossible themed comic of your own making. It can be one frame, or up to four frames, black and white or color. Just make it funny, and make sure it's about Ultima Online and an Impossible Mission in some way. Feel free to collaborate with others in-game, and feel free to submit more than one entry. You may also submit a story with each entry detailing your characters UO: Mission Impossible.


The content of the comic can be of just about anything! Example being a screenshot of your character in a strange and precarious in-game situation with a knee slapping laugh caption. Just keep it 'clean'.


It must be recognizable as consisting of screenshots taken from Ultima Online UO_Mythic. Follow this link ... Taking Screenshots ... for more information about taking screenshots in the game.


We also ask that you keep in mind the User Agreement - TOS and Rules of Conduct when planning out and executing your comic sequences and playing the game. But most of all, have fun with it and be creative!

Can't see how it was unfair. Queen Mum posted the contest, reminded people of it and encouraged everyone to enter. She did the best that could be done to get people to enter. If Adri was the only one to enter. Then double congrats to her for supporting Queen Mum and shame on us for not taking advantage of Queen Mum's great contest.
