Producer Notes


Greetings everyone,

We have recently released Publish 100 to Origin, Izumo, and Baja. If you haven't already, check out the Publish 100 notes, be sure to do so. If everything goes well we hope to release world wide by the end of June. We want to especially thank all of you who have submitted bug reports and worked with us to prioritize the bugs we squashed in Publish 100. We can only address so many issues in this publish to keep our overall publish schedule in mind, so if we missed a bug you submitted look for a fix in a future publish and remember you can always send us a priority report!

As we finish up Publish 100 we are already busyplanning and working on Publish 101, which you can read more about below. BetweenPublish 100 and 101we will be introducing a new item in the Ultima Store that many of you have seen - the Vault. A vault provides storage of 125 items which is shared across all characters on a server. The vault will be available on non-abyss ruleset shards only, so Endless Journey accounts on Siege & Mugen will have their bank box limit raised to 75. We are putting the finishing touches on this new storage option so be sure to keep an eye on UO.com for when we release the vaults for testing and eventual release.

I am happy to announce we have found a EM for Lake Superior, but please note I am keeping all the applications that were filled out correctly for any future openings I may have. We still have openings for Event Moderators so if you are interested check out this post for more information.

To celebrate the dawn of summer and the arrival of warm weather (for most of us)a summertime promotional item will be made available in the Britain Commons. Keep an eye on UO.com for details when this item becomes available - and bring your appetites!

One last topic I would like to address is Sovereigns. They are linked to accounts and if for some reason you want to merge or delete an account you will lose the sovereigns attached to that account. We will not move Sovereigns from one account to another.

For the period between May 28th and June 11th there have been the following actions taken by CS,

8 Solicitations - all banned
9 Disruptive Behaviors 3 of which were banned
15 macroing - 9 bans
1 abuse of game Mechanics
1 Illegal house design
1 naming violation

See you in Britannia,

Bonnie "Mesanna" Armstrong
Producer

Publish 101

With Publish 100 soon to be out the door, we are already hard at work on Publish 101. We know many of you are excited to see what comes next for Britannia and we promise Publish 101 will deliver on some of popular UO traditions as well as introduce some exciting new features to play with including,
  • Some stellar 21st Anniversary rewards!
  • Picking up the story of the Elemental Titans as Britannia faces some new and familiar threats!

Question & Answer Corner


1. Can we have a way to prevent accidentally deleting characters?

Yes, we can add in extra validations to prevent the accidental deletion of characters.

2. Can we have different hues for the background of the paperdolls?

Yes, this is possible and has been added to our backlog for a future publish.

3. Can the use of the Serpent's Pillar allow travel to Tokuno?

This is something we can look at for a future publish.

4. Can we have more nautical themed titles?

Yes! We are always looking at new areas to introduce titles since they enhance the roleplaying experience.

5. Can we add new costumes to the Halloween Costumes?

Look for new Halloween costumes in Publish 101!

7. Regarding Origin orders, codes, and third party resellers.

Recently some of the player base may have noticed that an Origin store purchase they have made did not arrive or complete as expected. A confirmation or code email has not been received and you are wondering what may have occurred with your order. 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 link:

http://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/new/

When prompted for a product, choose Origin. Next choose your platform, and select Orders as the topic. You can further specify your issue in the subsequent fields before speaking with an agent.

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 gametime, 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.

Gold Tome of the Virtues: Chapter 2 - All the Time in the World - Julia's Message
Great Lakes, Trammel
Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on June 15, 2018 at 7:35 PM CDT
City of Minoc

From the office of Tanda Knighthawke, Governor of Minoc:

The hour grew late, and rather than leave the drafty old castle to return home to her husband John, Tanda decided to take respite in the small but comfortable bedroom in the northern tower. Spending the evening recording the affairs of Minoc, it was well past time to give aging eyes a break. Once settled in for the night, with nothing else to distract her senses it became quite clear the castle had a new noise.

Howling winds, now and then water dripping through the floor of the castle battlements, the odd rodent scurrying about looking for scraps we all quite common. Even the creaking and moaning of the wooden beams as the great structure, more than a century old, continues to settle into the earth. This was different, it was measured and rhythmic. Slipping into a bed jacket, it was time to explore.

There was no sense of a spiritual being, no voices whispering into her ear. It definitely wasn't the scratching scamper of little claws on stone. It was cloudless and dry outside, with just the slightest of breezes. This noise travels with her as she walks the halls.

The grandfather clock in the office came as close to the sound as anything discovered. It sits on a diagonal line in the south tower, there is no way the ticking of this clock is the sound being heard. Standing in the office it became clear though that the ticking sounds were not in time with each other, one tick, then another but the intervals are off.

Deciding the ticking clock disturbing her sleep was merely a way her mind was trying to remind her she still has much to do to meet the time deadline for some of this work, with a *shrug* she returns to her bedchamber and begins to count sheep until the sound of songbirds wake her with the sunrise.

Back at the stacks of reports and orders from customers for inscribed bits the sound remains. "tick, tick, tick, tick" Its apparent another avenue is needed to find its source, so the decision is made to stroll into Minoc for a bite to eat. As the Governor makes her way through the countryside, gathering reagents along the way and speaking to various harmless animals for a few moments the sound seems to fade away. The sudden appearance of a troll shook off the relaxing lazy mindset, it was time to speed up the pace, lest having to resort to harming this creature in defense of self. With some distance between them returning to a walk becomes possible again. It soon struck her that the ticking sound is louder. How could it be, that something in Minoc could make so much noise it could be heard all the way out at Graycloak Manor?

A few smaller hills to climb and the smell of Lost Hope Bay fills the air, the sound of waves breaking on the shore punctuated by the sharp call of gulls searching for fisherman's scraps. Just a little further and the stable will come into scent range and then view. The Barnacle lays just beyond that, always a good place to listen to gossip as well as enjoy a bit of haggis.

Taking a seat at the bar, she orders lunch and a pint of ale, it's often easier to talk to the barkeep if you patronize his part of the establishment. Conversation begins with the usual, the weather or complaints about it, the lack of time to complete the days work, talk of how slow or brisk business is and its impact on the pocketbook. Slowly it moves to which townsperson is doing what and with whom, what new faces are about, gripes about elected officials. Seems that last night a fellow drinking at the bar started just before close to complain about the constant tapping, yelling about making whoever was tapping their fingers stop the annoying noise.

The barkeep ended up tossing the fellow out into the street, soon the whole town was awake. His ranting and yelling as he wanders about town creating quite a ruckus. Fortunately, the town folks, took him to the healers rather than doing him harm. Assuming he must have eaten a bit of bad food or having drank more than he could take.

Tab paid and both plate and tankard empty it was time to walk to the healers to see if the fellow was still there. As she meanders through the city, closer to the first tinkers shop the ticking sound again increases in volume, with each step toward Shenstone's it got even louder and then disappears into a lovely faint melody.

A brief detour into his shop, he was not about, which wasn't uncommon he was often out and about Britannia servicing customers onsite when it was a larger piece of machinery in need of repair.

The music was in this space, but there was no music box or device to causing it that could be seen.

Soon the healers building is in view. The all too familiar minerally scent of blood and Sulphur filling the air. Even from outside she could hear a man calling out to make it stop. Once inside, there was a middle-aged man, sitting with his hand cupped over his ears, curled in a ball rocking and crying out for the noise to stop. It took a few minutes but Governor Tanda eventually recognizes the man as a distant cousin from her mother's line, Phineas Solaren. A long line of seers and spellcasters punctuated with the occasional case of insanity, it would take time to determine which he is.

A calm gentle hand placed on his arm quiets the outbursts, it is soon clear that the same ticking sound invades his thoughts and he can't quiet it. Further discussion reveals he's been hearing the music, and seeing a ghostly female figure, fleeting images in his dreams for several days already. A bit of persuasion and he accompanies the Governor back to the castle through a moongate, it seems a speedy departure from the area may ease his current state.

Random reagents and herbs steeping in some boiling water, a tiny bit of honey soon brings some much-needed sleep to the man. Now it was time to go try the crystal ball, see if there are any willing to shed some light on this matter from the other side of the veil.

It isn't long, and the man is standing quietly behind Tanda, watching intently as she speaks the incantations, invocations and words of power trying to see through the mist. The effort is exhausting it is abandoned for now, perhaps later the spirits would be chattier.

Gold Tome of the VirtuesConversations turn to tales of Herbbinder and Solaren clans, talk of those who sought the dark arts, those who went mad, those who were banished briefly for cavorting with demons. It was agreed that being part of these clans carries with it a mixed set of blessings and curses. Mid-conversation, a Golden Mechanical songbird decorating the south tower took flight, landing in the tree on the north tower. The decorative bird never having shown such ability before startles the pair. It offers no words, made no threatening moves just perching there.

They both agreed, that the ticking sound, music and now this mechanical bird all must be signs from someone wishing to get their attention, but who?

Join Governor Knighthawke at the Minoc Mint, Wednesday, June 20th at 8pm CDT to learn more!

Gold Tome of the Virtues: Chapter 1 - The Dark Unborn
Great Lakes, Trammel
Submitted by Martyna_Zmuir on May 28, 2018 at 9:16 PM CDT

Gold Tome of the Virtues
From the desk of Dot Warner, Governor of Britain:

Several weeks ago, a band of brigands robbed the First bank of Britain of the freshly-restored Gold Tome of the Virtues, a magical collection of Virtue lore and stories.

The brigands, an all-female group strangely calling themselves The Dark Unborn, escaped through the sewers to the Lost Lands.

Join me, Governor Warner, in recovering the Tome from these miscreants. Meet at the First Bank of Britain on Wednesday, May 30th, 8pm CDT.
