Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “New” as “having recently come into existence”; “having been seen, used, or known for a short time”; “made or become fresh”; “different from one of the same category that existed previously”; or “of dissimilar origin and usually of superior quality”. Webster was right. New Britannia is, in fact, new, known only for a short time, fresh, different from those that came before, of different origins, and most importantly, of superior quality. We are all of this and more. A highly skilled development team is working to create a new reality. Ultima Online is simply an interface to them. It is the vehicle that takes one to the destination. We are creating a world where the secretary becomes the sorceress, where the fast-food cook becomes a great warrior, where the high school student is a powerful nobleman, where the girl next door is a deadly assassin. We have not pushed our boundaries, we have not merely broken them. We have decimated and utterly destroyed them. This is not the Ultima Online you once knew.

New Inventions

Lord Stephanos, Sep 5, 11 12:32 PM.

Master alchemists and healers together have discovered a mixture of nightshade and mandrake that can, with skill and luck, raise the dead. This medicine, atropine, is very difficult to produce and administer.

Skilled fletchers, mages, and alchemists have invented new ammunition for bows and crossbows. Magic Arrows are of an enchanted form that are much deadlier. Burst Arrows will explode on impact. Poison arrows and bolts have a much more subtle approach.

Also, a new duel system has been implemented. Use the command [duel to challenge other players on-site for 1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3, 4-on-4, or 5-on-5 combat. There is no danger of skill loss or equipment loss.

Open the Gates

Lord Stephanos, Sep 5, 11 12:31 PM.

I would like to invite all people from other worlds to make a new home in Britannia. I will personally see to it that you are well-taken care of. Right now we are offering a unique opportunity to get a head start in this world.

We will honor all of your top seven skills up to 80%, and your stats up to 80 (the skill/stat caps still apply). We will not transfer gold, houses, or items. After two weeks, you will be given a small house of your choosing. A guild transfer requires a minimum of five characters. Each character will be transferred as per the above policy, but the guildmaster will instead receive a tower, and the guild will have a password-protected channel set up in our TeamSpeak server. Send me a private message here and I will give you instructions.

If you bring a friend to Britannia, you will both receive small houses after two weeks. You and your friend must page the staff in-game for further instructions.
There are no upcoming events.
