Since there is no general ICQ Chat Room for UO, I have created one. Join to talk about anything from game news, upcoming publishes, how broken Lumberjacking is, etc. Anyone can join by using the chat room search feature. It is titled "Ultima Online - Britain Bank".
My hope is this will be like the old Stratics IRC channels. Those were fun and helpful.
Most ICQ users today are using the ICQ app on their smartphone. It is a lot more convenient, even when you are sitting at a computer. Keep in touch wherever you are on what is happening in your part of Britannia.
Lady Lavender, Governor of Yew, is putting on the annual Halloween Maze event sponsored by the United We Fight guild. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 11 at 9pm EST. The goal is to navigate through multiple houses using teleporters to reach the keep roof.
Gates will be open in Luna, New Haven, and West Britain Bank shortly before the event begins. Here are some tips to help your navigate the maze:
You can pass through the Iron Maidens and Guillotines by double-clicking them twice
Teleporters can be tucked between walls, under goza mats, rugs, or furniture
Turn your sound on so you can hear when you step on a teleporter
If you haven't noticed, the recent UO newsletters contained the following paragraph near the button:
If you have an account that was terminated by CS over a year ago and would like to have it back please contact support (http://uo.com/support-welcome/) and give them the details and identify the account as yours, depending on the termination we will remove the restriction from your account so you may open it again.
It is not clear what they will forgive. But it is more likely you will be unbanned for relatively minor reasons such as harassment, being reported for saying prohibited words like "rape", speedhacking, etc. If you were banned for major exploitation or your account has a note "DO NOT UNBAN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES EVER" then your chances would be less good.
But who knows, perhaps the notes were lost and they will unban you no matter how heinous your crimes against Britannia were!
If you are granted amnesty successfully please post a reply here so that other may hear the good news. If you know someone who was banned then let them know they could have another chance.
