The story continues in the lead up to Rising Tide and we invite you to sit back and enjoy, No Quarter.

By EM Malachi

The mage had surrounded himself with the maps. Some were ancient parchment, their mistakes and ignorance covered with drawings of dragons and drakes. Others were current shipping routes, still bearing the wax seal of Vesper Customs. The rest were faded or moldy sketches done by pirate captains over the years. Rankin frowned. What am I supposed to be seeing?

A new kingdom, replied Hook, as he sharpened a knife.

Rankin traced a circle around Buccaneers Den on a sea chart with a finger. I guess I can see that, if you claim another major island or two. Nujelm, maybe ?

You miss the point. Landlubbers look at the world as kingdoms bounded by coasts. The high seas themselves are much larger. The very ocean will be my kingdom.

How could you hope to hold that much territory?

Does Blackthorn control every mountain or cavern in Britannia? No, he governs the cities and roads. Those roads are dotted with outposts, and the threat of his armies is enough to hold the rest. The Guilds fleet is the army to claim the shipping routes, but my plan also requires outposts along these ocean roads.

Rankin thought for a moment and picked up a list of numbers. These were stolen from the Lycaeum. They are the coordinates of every seamount and vanishing island in recorded history. With some of the spells I learned from a hiding Lithos cultist, I could raise the earth and stone at some of them. Would that help?

Hook smiled.

*****

The sea serpent had made its home in the waters around the seamount. The waters were warm, and the shallows teemed with schools of fish. The monster had filled its belly for years here.

That changed when the underwater mountain rumbled and cracked. The chaos set off a panic among the fish, which fled for safer waters. Great stones stacked themselves up to the surface.

Something up there had destroyed its home, and the serpent was now very angry and very hungry.

*****

Rankin jotted down the coordinates he needed. I gather the new cannons being cast are for these outposts of yours? The metal workers did mention that the bores were larger than normally used on a ship.

Hook polished the steel of his cutlass. My plunderbeacons needed appropriately impressive artillery. Such weapons also send a message.

I can only raise so much stone. You still need to get enough lumber out there for docks and cannon mounts. I guess you could repurpose a ship if need be.

Hook smiled. Let me worry about that.

*****

The sailors lowered the sails on the captains order. Everyone knew the crew of the Golden Kraken was honorable and would only steal valuable cargo. It was safer to surrender than risk damage to the ship.

As the Golden Kraken closed for a boarding action, another sailor saw the black flag and drew his sword. The pirate ship slammed into the merchant sloop, and several orcs jumped aboard, all armed with cutlasses. The largest orc grabbed the quartermaster and tossed him overboard. Then the rest of the orcs began the slaughter.

*****

Hook admired the gleam of the polished cutlass. I do enjoy the finer things in life. Reminds me that I need to go kill a man. Is there anything else we should talk about before I do?

Rankin nodded. There was another thing in an old Guildmasters notes. He mentioned finding a lost rune

Do you think Young Budo is dead?

Lord Dalgrin looked down his nose at the balding man wearing only worn breeches who had asked the question. The gentleman pirate normally wouldnt waste his time speaking to such riffraff, but these were interesting times. He reached into a silk coin purse bearing the heraldry of his disgraced house and pulled out a few gold coins. He bought another round of drinks for those at the Pirates Plunder and handed an ale to Mole, who was still waiting on an answer. Does it really matter? If Budos alive, he wont be soon enough. A gathering has been called. The Guild will choose the new lord of this freehold.

Mole raised his mug, To better days then! Has your lordship considered putting his name into the pot?

Dalgrin sipped his whiskey, Yes, I will put my name forward.

You have my support. I still owe you for saving my sloop from the HMS Dauntless. If your broadside hadnt hit their mast, Id never have escaped.

Dalgrin had forgotten Mole was present when hed scuttled the Dauntless to settle an old rivalry. He smiled graciously. I appreciate that, but I thought you would stand behind that friend of yours?

Mole shook his head. Blacktooth wants no part of this. He says too much blood in the water attracts the wrong sort of company.

Dalgrin nodded and thought for a moment. Do you know who else wishes to lead Buccaneers Den? Who has the most support?

Minor smugglers and thieves Scirlock, Daem, and the like. Someone claiming to be the son of Edrick Gravs is demanding votes. I wouldnt choose most of them to be ships powder monkey, but right now, Glennos a good bet.

What sort of leader would the master of the bathhouse make for the Guild?

We all like him. I dont think hes serious though. Hes just waiting for someone to meet his price, if you know what I mean. Mole rubbed his thumb across his stubby fingers a few times.

That is good to know. I should perhaps have a bath then and speak with the earl of soapsuds.

Your lordship. Every thief, smuggler, and bilge rat in the world is coming. Theres an opportunity to buy favor, if you have the gold to spare.

A gentleman does not buy friends, but your point is taken. Dalgrin slid his coin purse down the bar to Mole. Why dont you find some like-minded individuals to parley with on this matter?

Mole grabbed the silk bag with his grubby fingers and gave a small bow. The balding man drained the last gulp from his flagon before scurrying off. Dalgrin finished his whiskey in silence.

*****

Dalgrin headed back to the ship he owned and captained: the Golden Kraken. Bribing Glenno would take more than drinking money, so Dalgrin would need gold from his captains chest. Walking down the docks, he noticed the deck of his ship appeared almost empty, save for a man with a parrot on his shoulder. The man handed something to the bird and whistled. The parrot flew toward Dalgrin and dropped what it was carrying. The shadow iron doubloon landed at Dalgrins feet.

Drawing his sword, Dalgrin ran the rest of the way up the gangplank to confront this threat. He saw a man wearing a blood-red skullcap and missing the eye Dalgrins sword had taken. Hook? I left you for dead!

You were always too honorable to actually kill your rivals. I will show you how this should end.

This isnt the first black spot Ive received. I learned to duel from the finest trainers in Jhelom. Dalgrin charged Hook, the first slash of his cutlass coming within an inch of the other mans face.

Hook grinned as he parried the blow. I never could beat you in a fair fight. Fortunately, Im a scoundrel and a cheat.

Dalgrin felt the cold of the paralysis spell before he saw the mage step out of invisibility. His sword hand stopped responding to his will. Helpless, he watched as Hook stepped up to him.

Did you really think you would be master of the Den? The pompous lord turned pirate? You are more hated than I am. Hook plunged a long kryss into Dalgrins chest and twisted. Dalgrin slumped to the deck.

The mage, Rankin, knocked on the hatch down to the hold. A group of orcs swarmed from below. They were all covered in blood.

Hook kicked the corpse to confirm Dalgrin was dead. He motioned to the orcs. Bring me the chest from the captains quarters. Then you can begin dumping the bodies, starting with this one.

A couple of orcs brought out a large captains chest and followed behind Hook and Rankin as they walked down the gangplank. The mage asked, What now?

Hook smiled. Lets go visit the bathhouse. Glenno is going to find he doesnt wish to run after all.

Producer Notes


Greetings,

We are putting the final touches on Rising Tide so please make sure you check out the latest updates toTC1! So far we have gotten great feedback on everything from the new cannon firing mechanics to the new vet rewards. We are planning to release Rising Tide in March, so if you haven't gotten to TC1 to check out the changes and provide feedback you still have time - but time is running out! We are planning another update to TC1 this afternoon, so keep an eye on UO.com for updates!

With Rising Tide almost out the door we have already started planning on Forgotten Treasures. At the onset we will be taking a look at Treasure Maps and MIB's - be sure to get involved in the conversation and give us your feedback during this planning phase by visiting the forums. We are also working on new items for the Ultima Store. In the near term you can look for an update to the house teleporter tiles to include more options for teleporter types (ever wanted a trapdoor? Now's your chance!) We are also adding specialty room sets designed to fit different room themes. We've completed a Decorative Kitchen Set which will be up on the store in the coming months and are are currently working on a Decorative Farming Set. If you guys have any requests for specific rooms we look forward to your feedback!

We will be having the Dev Meet and Greets on the following days/times:

February 25th Europa 4 pm ET
March 11th Oceania 8 pm ET
March 25th Catskills 7 pm ET

Finally, the following are actions taken on accounts that were banned or suspended:

3 - Multiboxing
2 - Solicitations

See you on the High Seas,

Rising Tide


The seas call to us once more! We are excited for the first release of 2019 - Rising Tide!

EM Malachi has been busy with his quill penning the opening chapters to this exciting tale! If you haven't already you can catch up on The Rune Carver and Lost Hope.

We have made a number of quality of life changes, as well as bug fixes related to the cannon firing process and ship combat in general. Some of the highlights include streamlining the crafting process for cannon munitions as well as simplifying the firing process for cannons. All of these changes are currently in testing on TC1 and we encourage you to check out the latest publish notes and invite you to participate in the conversation!Rising Tide will give ample opportunityto put those new mechanics to work with plenty of loot to plunder from the High Seas!


Question & Answer


1.Can we get new fey type costumes?

We added a number of new costumes to the costume tool in last year's Treasures of Khaldun event - look for more costumes in future content! We certainly have plenty of creatures to work through!

2.Can NPC restock timers be looked at so it doesn't take as long to buy up commodities to workable amounts?

We would have to investigate the far reaching consequences of changing the restock timers, but at face value there shouldn't be an issue with shortening this time.

3.Why are there negative properties on loot / Can we enhance gargish jewelry?

One of the major hurdles in building desirable loot in a game world that spans more than two decades is balancing the power of loot intensity increases versus the difficulty of encounters you find in the world. As the loot power increases, players become more powerful. To balance against that encounters, in turn, become more challenging. This often leaves less-equipped or new players by the wayside. You'll often hear us refer to power creep - this is what we are referring to. Negative properties allow us to tame the power creep somewhat, but there is more that needs to be done to keep the gaming experience vibrant. To that end, adding the ability to enhance gargish jewelry pushes that creep even further and we are apprehensive to do that at this time while we consider possible ways to curtail and balance power creep. We look forward to continuing the conversation on possible solutions!

4. Can we have additional sailing themed titles?

Never know what the Rising Tide will bring!

5.Can there be an option to auction safes to auto-renew the auction?

Yes, we have added this item to our backlog and hope to add it in a future publish.
