So long, a short farewell

So long, a short farewell

Posted by Kai Schober | 2012 Nov 09 18:27 -0500 GMT        

Today is my last day as Community Manager at Mythic. I’ll face a new and very exciting challenge from Monday on.
It has been great to work on Ultima Online and all other Mythic products for the last 2 years. I met amazing people here in the teams as well as out there among you players. My only regret is that I had to spread my attention over 5 different titles and never had the time to be really dedicated to one of them. But I take a lot of great memories with me.
I thank you for being the awesome, annoying, loyal, critic, understanding, demanding community that you are. The support you continue to give UO is really appreciated, and I know I leave the game in very good hands.
Until we meet again – thanks for all the fish, and no, you can’t haz my stuff.

Publish 79 will be on Origin and Izumo after tomorrow’s maintenance.  In an effort to get more feedback from all our players, we will be sending publishes to both Origin and Izumo shards.
In addition to the Publish 79 notes the following changes have been made:
  • Artifacts obtained from the Exodus Encounter cannot have powder of fortification applied
  • The New Haven Mine has opened on the Southern Edge of the island
  • The trade window will no longer be empty when trading a tamed turkey
