Reports are pouring in that the orcs have been spotted closer to the
cities than ever before. Residents on the outskirts of the cities have
said that it appears we're in for an attack within the next couple days.
Guards have been called from all over Britannia to protect the larger
cities, which we hope will prevent the orcs from attempting to attack
This will be a dark time for citizens of the smaller towns, and we can
only hope that by banding together, these attacks can be weathered until
the true source of this uprising can be found.
Some guards will remain in the smaller towns to see that anarchy does
not erupt, and that citizens will be protected from other citizens. Stealing
from and attacking other players in town unlawfully will still bring the
ire of the town guards. However, these remaining guards will be too sparse
to defend the town against orc attacks.
NOTE: These updates are related to the continuing scenario occuring
in Ultima Online. For more information, read the associated fiction located
at Dudagog's Tale
. The items associated with the scenario will continue to be available
in game after the scenario is complete.
