First I have to apologize. I have been waiting until I had enough pieces to get a new one of these out and a few days ago I realized I was way past having enough and should be posting the second one by now, with what I have! Ooops!
So let’s do this thing.
I mean, what can I seriously say? What words can top this title? Not really fair you know? It’s like looking at a level 6 Rouge and saying, ok go for it, roll your hiding skill to hide from Dragolich the dragon, in a fully lit room, which is also his hoard, after he was just talking to you, and you haven’t moved, and he knows where you are. Unless your Bilbo and have a Ring of Unlimited Invisibility, with Unlimited Charges, forget it!
The last few months I have been unable to publish this piece, but rest assured I am still here and other then the short pause, nothing has changed! Glad to be picking it back up again and let’s just get straight to it!
Austin game developer Richard Garriott brought a crew of child explorers — including his own — to the North Pole in April. They flew the Austin flag while they were there and presented that flag to the mayor on Tuesday.
If you missed the fact he did this a while back… He did.
If you know the history of Richard Garriott, you know that it all started at a Computerland. Who was the man behind the Computerland? Find out about that and more in a new book coming out, which details the history of Richard Garriott.
If you are looking for a good Patreon to support in which you get something back and input on what is made, then this is one to pay attention to. Not only that but the name may be familiar to many of you as Mike Nystul worked at Origin, as well as, ya know, being in a couple of Ultima games!
Following his Patreon i’ve been pretty impressed with the variety of things hes working on as well as putting them out at a decent rate. More importantly is these are steps he is taking towards a new career and as such he is taking input seriously as to what to create.
This is an opportunity that if your needing some gaming aids or even a complete game to jump in and support him and at the same time get some things you would like to have made! Game creation by request is a great concept so check it out!
What I will be creating – Original Role Playing Games. Support for existing games (or generic material). Original board and card games. Fun stuff gamers can use to have fun playing games.
Head over and check it all out and think about supporting him!
I am sure you heard the news. A feature I REALLY wanted in game is going to be implemented… STREET NAMES!! At least thats the word from Dippy Bird currently. A great thread for working as a community to come up with the proper street names is underway over the hill.
If yous a SotA fan you MAY be an Ultima fan as well. So while I am primarily about Shroud News and information, I do include some of the more compelling stuff regarding Ultima from time to time. This is one of those I felt needed to be done!
Otherside Entertainment has announced they are rebooting the Underworld Franchise. They are calling it Ultima Ascension! This should be cool. My concern is I won’t make time for it as ill be neck deep in SotA by then.. but hey, maybe I can squeeze it in when the servers are down. It happens!
Welcome to OtherSide Entertainment! We’re a brand new game studio focused on rebooting classic game franchises. For our first title we’re bringing back the classic Ultima™ Underworld franchise, which we’re calling Underworld Ascension™. Our team include some of the folks who created the original franchise. When we made the original we looked to redefine the fantasy RPG genre. With the reboot we’re going right back to innovating, and our goal is to make the franchise more vital than ever. We are just getting started so little to see as yet, but rest assured, in the weeks to come we will be showing more and more. In the mean time we’d love to hear from you, because as fans you are an essential part of this franchise. Hit us up on Twitter @otherside_games and let us know what you loved about the Underworlds. Stay tuned here for updates and news.
Ok, hopefully I can put these out again on a regular basis. Was having some issues with my spy network.
While this is not on my personal wish list, it’s not something I have seen pop up on Ebay to often so some of you collectors may have an interest. Ultima Warriors of Destiny – Hint book only! With a buy it now and free shipping (my favorite kind of auction as long as the buy it now is reasonable).
Not an amazing price but not bad. Another one I would pick up if I had the money right now and definitely one of the Nostalgia items I used to have id like to pick up for my collection again. An Ultima Underworld II!
Really nice buy for an Ultima III over on eBay. 40.00 + shipping for what appears to be a complete U3 and that looks like it is in fantastic condition? If my finances where a bit better I would be all over this. Its even the right version for me for nostalgia purposes since U3 was the first game I ever played, on a PC! I am going to regret having to pass on this one for quite some time!
