The Ultima X: Odyssey (UXO) staff has recently released a revised version of their virtue page. Each of the eight virtues grants an incredibly powerful effect on the user but often has a long reuse time. These abilities are earned by doing quests associated with each virtue. This not only allows players to role-play their characters more, but it also grants each player a tremendous award for completing these quests. These abilities range from area of effect heals to the ability to slay any foe instantly and without any resistance (which has a 24 hour reuse time to balance this power out).
In addition to the virtue section of their website, the UXO staff has released the orc fiction section, which goes into great detail describing the orcish race. Role-players or anyone interested in UXO's story line should definitely look into this section.
