    Greetings Avatars!

    In this friday's livestream (1/25/2019) we're going to be featuring some quests created by the community!

    We've had the pleasure of experiencing a ton of unique and imaginative quests created by the players themselves, and wanted to share that experience with everyone on this week's livestream.

    While we won't have time to feature every submission during the livestream, we still look forward to experiencing all the cool content and stories you all have made (and probably feature several over the course of future livestreams).

    If you have created an in-game storyline or quest that we could play through on the livestream, or if you know of one someone else who has made one that you enjoyed, please give us the details!

    Things to include:

    1. Starting point of the quest

    2. Any back story we should know (A lot of you have extensive fiction privided via in-game books, so if there's any backstory we need to summarize/share for the quest to make sense please lets us know where to find it).

    3. Player presence required? - I know some of the rp quests require a player(s) to be present and in-character. So, if that is a requirement, please be available during friday's livestream hours (4:00 P.M. CST Friday).


    Thank you all for your contributions! Your unique additions to the world make it really special and we appreciate everyone's efforts in role playing evens and player-created quests and stories.

    @mystarr has had a standing quest in PaxLair on his vendor. Great quest guy! Hopefully he sees this.

    In Paxlair, you come in at the dock, there is a gray obsidian tower to your right. His vendor is up the path the the left side of the building. It's a quest that takes you around, various towns, till you find the prize chest. If I remember correctly. He's called the Gray Tower Vendor

    Dara Brae
    @Vas Corp Por The island nation of Dara Brae (aka spiritual successor of Skara Brae) has one of the longest running self guided tours (or quest depending if you are searching for what Dara Brae is). We started this tour in Release 20.

    We are proud to have the first Nature Reserve in all of New Britannia. The tour goes around the nature reserve.

    Starting point is straight from the entrance to the Lord British battle banner at location:
    Area: Dara Brae (POT_island_metropolis_01_template/Dara Brae) Loc: (444.2, 77.0, -340.8)

    There are stone pavers on the ground with a note explaining how that stop relates to either:
    A) SotA
    B) Ultima series (1-9) or Ultima Online Lore
    C) Real Life Celtic lore and legends (Irish, Scottish, and English)

    Go counter clockwise around the flat top mountain (including the Ring of Stones at top of the mountain) and end inside the Castle. There are wooden signs that have tool tips to help you continue around the mountain.

    The entire tour is:
    - Yew tree (starting point)
    - Dragon Statue
    - Wishing Well of Sacred Waters
    - Druid Tree
    - Ring of Stones on top of the mountain
    - Skara Brae home example (aka SotA's Elven Home)
    - Sentinel of Skara Brae Head
    - Golem Statue on the beach
    - Ruins
    - Elemental Statues
    - Legend of the Headless Horseman
    - Celts vs Vikings
    - Animal Taming (windmill stable)
    - Castle (tour ends inside)

    No player presence required.

    Hello!! There is the quest I have created in Jade Valley. It starts at the Byrd's Nest Inn, just off the outdoor market on my Row Lot (not the Jade Dragons Tea House...the other row lot)

    It is called:
    The Treasure of Mystery Island
    Lily Byrd's Journey by Journal

    There are several locations involved and a story to read, or if you are impatient just solve the clues and solve the mystery. Your path is up to you.

    Most of the properties I own in Jade Valley have supporting story on them, the most relevant clue is the history of Lily Byrd summed up in a book on the table in the dining hall of the Keep on Moon Mountain under the Moon Tower ( and several of the properties that I don't own may have a clue or 2 scattered about. Your best bet is to start either at the Byrd's Nest Inn or the Hall of Inquiry and Learning information desk has some info as well.

    My character Violet Green will be at the Inn on friday playing in the pub if you need a guide.

    Hello ,

    Boris Mondragon, the Elegant Pirate, started an adventure in written form called Black Sails Saga, part one which took place in Dragomir Mori with three of her ship captains murdered. So far there are about 4o avatars who participate in writing posts, giving advice and other ways of enjoying being part of the story.

    The story continued into Tenebris Harbor and New Heaven where Antrax and Dhanas hosted a PVP battle between the evil Obsidians (played mostly by the House of Mangar guild and Shadow People guild. All evil avatars are welcome to be their evil selves as well.) vs good Pirates and others (being their virtuous selves) played by a variety of guilds all over New Brittania).

    We worked our way back to Port Dragomir in Dragomir Mori as we continue to search for the reason and clues the captains were murdered. There will be another battle in Dragomir on February 24 at 2 PM CST. Kahli will be our next stop as the story continues.

    We combine Role Play with the story as it unfolds in posts as each avatar ,who would like to, enters the story bringing it to life in the posts they contribute. We take pictures, videos and have other activities as the story unfolds. This year we plan on having a battle in each town who would like to host one.
    Avatars write and post how they see the story unfolding as we go toward a battle or a party depending on the direction of the story as it grows each week.

    This is a community activity for anyone who wants to participate by posting and/or fighting in the battles or having fun at the parties.
    Each new part of the story as well as the prior story is posted in the Fire Lotus Tavern Library by Boris Mondragon. Anyone is welcome to participate on the evil side or on the good side.

    Read in the following links what has taken place so far.

    Thanks for the submissions so far! I'm very excited to play through these quests!

    @CatherineRose , your last link doesn't work, the one with the video. I think you copied an abbreviated link from a post?

    @Sannio @Vas Corp Por
    SEEKER OF THE GREY TOWER

    In PaxLair, screams have been heard from a dark tower just outside the main city walls...
    [​IMG]

    In Novia Market, a botanist has been found murdered in his home near the Oracle Confirmatory...
    [​IMG]

    Can you follow the clues to solve the mystery?

    "Nobles most bold
    explored they say.
    Sought hidden gold
    once lost to stay...."

    The treasure of the Grey Tower awaits...

    [​IMG]

    NOTE:
    • The treasure of the tower will replenish itself once per day.
    • Once you have claimed the treasure, the magic of the tower will prevent you from re-entering.
