    Just read that LB and Blackthorn are going to make an in-game appearance in UO. Is it true? Sounds like a good opportunity for some SotA promotion :)

    "Read the exciting conclusion and join us for a live, in-game event on TC1 September 25th 2014 at 7pm ET! Meet Richard “Lord British” Garriot and Starr “King Blackthorn” Long at Castle Blackthorn to celebrate Ultima Online’s 17th Anniversary!"

    By the way: 17 years! Wow time flies!

    LB already made an appearance to some free shards including UOF (Ultima Online Forever). Perhaps the official UO was a bit more difficult to make an appearance on. If they gave out a free month I'd login to see but from the screen shots of UOF I can see they will simply inform the crowd about SOTA so we are already familiar with the subject, do hope they check out SOTA and give up their UO subscription.

    I'm hoping to log in on that day, seeing Lord British on Ultima once more will be incredible!!! EMs -try- to rp as Blackthorne, but really all they did was screw up the lore.

    Anyway, I'm patching up UO just for this!

    I believe that 'return to britannia' will be happening on the 24th when publish 86 goes world-wide - so folks that haven't played for awhile can get back in for free to see the event on TC1. (Return to Britannia is a time when inactive accounts will be given some free play time.)

    Just fyi, I will not be giving up my UO subscriptions even when SotA goes live -- and i'm certainly not advocating anyone else do that either. I have friends i care about there and also homes, rares etc. I still love and support UO, and I think it will be possible to play both games.

    The meet and greet on UO just shows to me that lots of other people feel that way too.
