Boat Carrying The Mad Mages Experiments Hits The Bay Of Britanny!

Tholden and Lord British agree that a pirate ship carrying stow away pets from Sutek’s island had crash landed in the Bay of Britanny. Guards say this morning the boat crashed in to shore near the Inn. Upon inspection, all crew were found dead and dismembered. Strange sounds were heard below deck for hours until a raging bull rocked a hole in the boats hull. Since this time Vicious Cows, Alligators, and Hydra from Sutek’s Mansion as sea have spread inland. Lord British orders all women and children to return home at once! And all able fighters, Guardians, and members of the royal Britannian Guard do what they can to rid the town of this vile corruption of nature. Until then investigators will be looking in to this unusual shipment’s origins and purpose.

The Ultima VI Team is also proud to announce weekly events!
The pipeline for weekly live events first went into testing 2 months ago with
a gargoyle invasion in Britain. The event was a huge success and the Live Event
cycle is now a permanent addition to Ultima VI Online. You may view the event below:
(I would Recomend Fullscreen and 720p)

After this event was the Destard Outbreak west of trinsic:

And most recently the Yew Prison riot
Yew Prison Break

Not many survived this one….

With the release of this publish the new year event cycle is still under way featuring the rise of the worlds fallen pirates.
The undead now swarm wrecked ships off the coast of Trinsic and its barrier island. Beware, you must travel there on ship, and they do not take kindly to mages…

Thank you all for reading and helping bring Ultima VI Online back. I hope you will join us and the other Avatars from around the globe in keeping Britannia alive and well.
