The Ultima 6 Online project blog reports that the server for the game is back up and running, after being taken down at the end of May as a result of a series of bad electrical storms.
And with the server back up, the good folks at U6O were able to kick off a new in-game event last Saturday:
The mad mage Penumbraís experiments with cell division have gone as awry! Little is know what cause the cell division to get out of hand, but what is known is that most of middle Moonglow is covered in slime! With the towns mages trapped in their homes with walls of slime, Lord British is calling on the Royal Britannian Guard to assist!
With most of the landís able warriors sailing to Moonglow to assist, the Dragons of Destard have yet again begun making their way to the walls of Trinsic! Is Britannia doomed? Will there be enough brave and able warriors skilled enough to take on this dividing threat?
It sounds interesting; if anyone took part, do let us know how it turned out!
