As we continue the story of Forsaken Foes we invite you to sit back and enjoy, A Concert of Wisps.

By EM Malachi

Xzptz! Zzk! Gxz!

Jaana stepped into the clearing and paused in awe at the hundreds of wisps. The forest buzzed with spark life. A few wisps flew orbits around her and blinked their agitation. The druid removed a small wooden object from her bag. Several rangers had told her that the wisps were converging in the woods north of Britain. Jaana blew a few trills on the wisp whistle and put it on the ground.

A wisp flew into the whistle and started testing various sounds to make words. With its own magic, the wisp could communicate in other ways, but the whistle was safer for the human listener. There were stories of mages driven insane by arcane knowledge explained in fifty dimensions simultaneously. Also, the wisp seemed to appreciate the courtesy.

GREETINGS, JAANA OF YEW. XORINIA IS IN NEED OF HELP.

Whats wrong? I have never seen so many pieces of you in one place.

XORINIA FACES A THREAT LOBOTOMY AND AMPUTATION. CONNECTIONS OF LOCAL MANIFESTATIONS TO THE WHOLE BROKEN.

The part of you here is no longer connected to the part beyond? Jaana spread her arms, motioning toward the distant stars.

CORRECT.

Do you know the cause?

YES. THREE STRUCTURES. Around Jaana, the light of every wisp blinked three times.

Can you tell me more?

UNKNOWN ORIGIN. LOCATIONS GEOGRAPHICALLY EQUIDISTANT ACROSS SOSARIA. COMPOSITION: BLACKROCK, CADDELLITE, FILANIUM. UNIQUE SHAPES AND SPECIFICATIONS: CUBE, SPHERE, TETRAHEDRON. DO YOU REQUIRE EXACT DIMENSIONS?

That wont be necessary. Do you know what these structures do?

CUBE TRANSMITS ACROSS SOSARIA. TETRAHEDRON SHARPENS ETHEREAL WAVES. SPHERE IS A SPACE-TIME TRAP.

Which one is affecting your connection?

EACH AND ALL. The concert of wisps started flashing in disharmony.

Can you tell me more about the sphere?

THE SPHERE IMPRISONS TIME LORD. HE SENT FOR AID, BUT THE RANGER HAS FALLEN.

Jaana frowned in worry, but continued with her questions, You came here for a reason. What is your plan?

JAANA OF YEW OR EQUIVALENT HELPFUL BEING. The concert went quiet, waiting for her answer.

Of course I will help. Can I assume one of the structures is nearby? Can you show me the way?

A few wisps bobbed closer to her and started moving south. Jaana followed. Their progress brought them closer to Britain, eventually leading to the lake around Castle Blackthorn. The wisps swarmed close to a large stone culvert.

HERE. MANIFESTATIONS CANNOT FOLLOW.

Jaana peered into the outfall that connected to the Britain sewer system and pulled a torch from her pack. Ill do what I can.

*****

Elizabeth tossed a blade into the eye of one necromancer as she stabbed through the casting hands into the heart of another. Abraham, again, not that I mind, but why are we killing these people?

Her twin cranked back the string of his crossbow. With their knowledge of Jacks past as leverage, these necromancers thought threatening Batlin was a wise course of action.

Does it matter? Its not as though they can hurt him. Remember when that noble we blackmailed tried to poison Batlin, and the voice protected him?

Abraham let loose an arrow into a serpent familiar trying to bite his leg. They could hurt the work. Theres also the principle: you should never threaten someone when killing you is the cheaper and more efficient option.

Excellent points, dear brother. You always did understand the nuances of our work. Elizabeth recovered a throwing knife from a corpse. I think a few of the smarter ones fled. Ill go after them. Can you handle the cleanup here?

Abraham picked up a scroll titled Bedlam-born and tossed it into the fire. Everything will be taken care of. Trust your brother.

Producer Notes


Greetings Everyone,

Hope everyone has a safe spooky Halloween this year! Players across Britannia are enjoying new additions to Halloween favorites like Trick or Treating and Pumpkin Carving, as well as new additions like the Treasures of the Sea! We love seeing everyone's houses decorated this time of year!

The first release of Jolly Roger is live on TC, so if you haven't check it out the publish notes give them a read and head on over to the forums to give us your feedback! We have some exciting things coming in our next release of Jolly Roger including a brand new interface for mannequins that will help with equipment comparisons as well as the next chapter of our ongoing High Seas event. Can't wait for you guys to check it out!

The House Room sets have been very popular additions to the Ultima Store and we will be releasing some new ones in the coming publishes, including a Torture Room and more!

We have been evaluating the Player Event Coordinator program over the past couple of months and due to lack of participation we are doing away with the PEC position. If in the future the need grows we will revisit the program at that time. Otherwise if you have any issues or needs please contact me at Mesanna@browdsword.com.

We have come across a few players that are still titled and/or robed as a companion. If you are robed or titled as a companion of any rank you must contact CS or myself to get the character cleaned. Please know that if you are seen out in a robe without calling us we will take action against your account. Please contact us to take care of the account.

With the latest iteration of the Castle/Keep contests we want to let you know we will only be implementing the top 3 designs chosen by players. We love seeing the creativity of our player base and look forward to seeing which 3 designs you guys pick as the next 3 Keeps introduced to Ultima Online!

EA ORIGIN - ORDERS, CODES, AND THIRD PARTY RESELLERS

Sovereign Coin Codes that have been redeemed are bound to the EA Account they were redeemed on and are only usable by the accounts linked with that EA Account; Sovereign Coin currency may not be transferred.

If you are having issues with your EA Origin purchase, follow this link to resolve theissue.

CODE PURCHASE DELAY
You may have noticed that Origin Store purchases made did not arrived as expected. The Origin Store enacts reviews on all transactions to safeguard against fraudulent purchases, and these reviews may take up to 72 hours. Unfortunately our Billing department is not able to expedite or circumvent this process. However, players who have questions or concerns regarding a store purchase can contact Origin Support for assistance using the below steps:

THIRD PARTY RESELLERS
We would also like to reiterate that the Origin store is the only guaranteed provider of codes for Ultima Online. The validity of a code purchased from a third-party seller (be it a friend, in-game acquaintance, or recommended site) cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, any codes we find to have be fraudulently obtained will be disabled and an account that applies any of these codes will have that code removed from said account. This can result in the loss of game time, character slots, expansion access, Sovereigns (and the items purchased with them), in-game items and more. Please be advised that we cannot assist with any issues stemming from codes purchased via non-Origin means; you will be required to contact the vendor from which you purchased the code for further assistance.

Caddellite Potion Notes from Dr. Owl
Great Lakes,
Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on October 21, 2019 at 7:12 PM CDT

Originally posted October 20th, 2019 by EM Malachi on the Great Lakes EM Site:

Dear Alchemists, Mages, and Scholars of the Arcane:

I admit I have not yet developed a working potion, so I am asking for your arcane expertise to figure out the specifics. Beyond providing the ingredients you can, please write down your formula in a book with your name. Include any preparation directions you feel relevant.

Notes:

I. Some form of Caddellite, possibly still bound by rock.

II. An ingredient to bring out the potency of Caddellite.

III. An ingredient to prevent the toxicity of Caddellite.

IV. An ingredient so the potion does not interfere with the casting of spells.

V. An ingredient to protect the dreams and meditations of the drinker.

VI. An ingredient to mitigate the loss of stamina and other deleterious side effects caused by the potion.

VII. Two ingredients to allow the normal flow of mana into and out of a person, one for each tide.

VIII. As the formula will make a drinkable potion, one ingredient to improve taste.

IX. Brain tissue to test a small amount of the potion to insure its safety and efficacy.

All who participate will be invited to join the Seers of the Moonstone. Current members who help will be promoted to Lorekeepers. The best and most creative recipe will be used to make potions to help the Seers of the Moonstone and other mages, such as our king. The mages who worked on it will be recognized for this great task in our archives.


  • Our mailbox is at the Award Hall, accessible through the gate outside the Counselor Hall.
  • If you are using the Enhanced Client, please be sure to redleaf your book before turning it in.
  • If you would prefer to mail in your discoveries, please send them to one or both of us.

The Mortal Game

It bothered the king that the pieces did not match. His side was made from obsidian, beautifully sculpted into the expected shapes. The crafter had taken more liberty with reds side, giving extra details to each of the bloodwood pieces. The knights were decorated with curved swords, and the bishops had gargoyle features. The towers were topped with sharp points that reminded Blackthorn of wolf claws. The board and pieces had been a gift from Lord Batlin when the king suggested they play this game.

The king steepled his fingers and examined the board. His opponent was aggressive; Blackthorn had already lost much dealing with Batlins knights. Still, the king had retaken initiative when he sent his own knights into the enemy ranks. As long as there were no other surprises

*****

The gourd-festooned sloop slammed into the larger merchant galleon, and zombies with pumpkin heads scrambled to board the other ship.

The zombie crew started killing its counterpart and dragged the bodies back to their ship. A living sailor lopped the head off one of the abominations, but the animate flesh kept moving until the rotting hands were around the sailors throat.

*****

Batlin smiled as his claw-topped rook captured a pawn in blacks ranks and put Blackthorns king in check. Blackthorns own rook was trapped and would soon be captured, and many of his defenders were scattered or busy on other parts of the board. Let me know if you wish to resign.

Blackthorn shook his head and moved a bishop to defend the king. The diagonal movement of bishops reminded him of mages, always moving at strange angles to everything else.

*****

The mage had taken extra care with his binding circle, even using expensive silver-dust chalk. Daemonology was frowned on even here in Moonglow, so he had taken these precautions.

The mage began the ritual to summon and control a demon. Halfway into the delicate casting, his connection to the magic in the room broke. The failed spell started a fire, and the creature escaped the binding circle. As demonic claws tore into the mage, he was still puzzling out what had happened.

*****

Batlin knocked over his own king with a finger. An excellent game. Perhaps we will play again.

Blackthorn studied the final board. Im sure we will.

May I ask a question?

Of course.

From your reputation, I expected a more lively game or at least a nearly empty endgame. It seemed at times you were more focused on preventing the capture of your pawns than protecting your king.

I have a certain affection for pawns. After all, we are all just pawns in this life.

Batlin gave a nod. That we are.

*****

In the ethereal void, the Time Lord strained against his chains as hundreds of spirits tore apart the shrine around him, directed by a voice in the darkness.
