I didn’t go AWOL. I have a certain amount of time I can devote to UO-related website stuff, and right now that time is devoted to a website that is not UOJournal.com.
But there are things happening, big things. Here are a few of those things.

Ultima Mapper is the new mapping application for Ultima Online Classic and Enhanced clients that allows users to share the entire experience, rather than just their whereabouts.
UO gets its 1,623rd mention on Massive – Do you Miss Player Written Books in MMOS:
Ancient sandboxes like Ultima Online and modern classics like EverQuest II give players the ability to write their own books, which then populate player-run libraries, serve as tavern menus, explain quests, and mark the memory of friends who left the game. Later games, however, have sadly passed over the mechanic.
Another edition of The Yew Times, a break from the normal UO news.
The Awakening – Act II, Part 2 – A continuation of the ongoing story arc.
