In memory of the Towninvasions
Posted by Siward on Thursday Aug. 18th '16 at 22:06 (UTC+1)

In memory of the Towninvasions


Not even three years ago Minax's forces raided our cities. Back then we have fought them with all available means. History showed that the battlegrounds just shifted to new territories.

Therefor I am inviting every adventurer, capable civilian and willing supporter of the oppressed cities to join us on

Friday, August 26th
at 20:30 cet


We will be meeting at Lord Blackthorn's castle (entrance to the dungeon) to show those remaining invaders that we are still defending our cities!

Do not forget what we have achieved and what we vouch for.

Queen of the Unseelie Court, Governor of Moonglow

Throughout whole of August, a fishing competition takes place. Desired fishes are: Large Fish, Red Herring and Mud Puppy. Those can be captured and delivered to the mailbox at the EM Reward Museum. The month of the catch must state August 2016. Ideally, the fish are also heavier than those in the museum! The three winners with the most heavy fish will receive a named plaque in the EM Museum.

A message from a Knucklehead
Posted by Stephen on Saturday Jul. 30th '16 at 10:24 (UTC+1)

Greetings..


Let me first make one thing clear: This message is NOT news about The Knuckleheads, Drachenfels or UO. It is merely a message about me, Stephen, so please don’t waste your time if that is of no interest to you. It really isn’t a very interesting message anyways. ;)


Now that I got that out the way let me try explain why I am making this post.
Ultima Online has been a huge part of my life, I have been playing it for more than half my life. Started playing when I was 15 years old way back in ’97. At first I was using a shared account at the local Netcafe, but early ’98 I got my own! I didn’t really play it much at first, cause a 56K modem was both slow and expensive, at least here in Denmark at the time, and ping times to the US shards were atrocious. It wasn’t until Drachenfels launched that I really got hooked, and I knew I found a new home. Since then I have had many breaks from UO, usually not long though. Whenever I felt down or I was struggling, I could just get into the game and feel ”safe” (for lack of a better word). UO helped me through many dark parts of my life, which is one of the reasons I treasure the game as much as I do. Which brings me to the point of this whole post.

Puhhhhhhhhhh.. * catches breath * That was a long buildup….

For roughly 18 months now I have battling with alot of issues in my life, none I wish to go into details about. Some of you that know me, might have noticed this, especially last year. The reason I bring this is up, is because once again I relied on UO to get me through, and for a while it was working as it always had in the past. Until around christmas, when yet another incident occurred, and I guess it was what really broke me (the final straw, I guess you could say). All of my passions; UO, movies, books, my computer; I lost interest in all of it. For, what seems to be, a long time all I managed to do was eat, sleep and go to work. I barely even recollect what I have done in the meantime.

I bet you’re thinking; ”I thought he mentioned something about there being a point to this.”, and yeah, I was never any good at explaining myself, and often go off on a tangent! ;)

One day, I suddenly disappeared. Something I am truly sorry about. I have to apologize to some people for vanishing without much, if any, communication. I sincerely hope I can remedy that! As for the future, I will not make any promises! I want to get back to UO, and I feel the desire again. I will be around every now and then, but right now I can’t say how much (or little) I will be playing. I love UO! I love Drachenfels! I love our community and I love our events. I wish to be partaking in all of it again, but, as I mentioned, I will not make any promises yet!

If you’re still reading then thank you for your time! If you know me, then I hope you can understand. I made this post for you, and I appreciate you took the time to read it all. If you don’t know me, then I am really impressed you got through it all, and maybe, if I haven’t scared you off already, we can get to know one another some day!

I think that’s all I had to say write for now! I hope to see you all in game! Take care..


PS. Sorry if some of this doesn’t make any sense. I really am no good at getting my thoughts put into comprehensible words. Also 10 AM is early for a night owl like me, and I haven’t had nearly enough coffee yet to be attempting forming more than simple sentences. But ohhhhhh well..


Safe travels
- Steph
