If you were around in the early days of MMOs, you probably played Ultima Online. How well we remember the "scary music" when a PK would range near as we were innocently chopping wood to try to craft some type of weapon. Ah, the good old days! The Broadsword team took time out to thank players for their participation and "to those who have left their mark on [the] humble virtual world!"

21 years ago Ultima Online changed the video game landscape forever.  Sosaria spawned a virtual world where people could adventure together and forge friendships that would last a lifetime.  Today we celebrate that legacy by wishing UO a very happy birthday and thanking all those Britannians who have left their mark on our humble virtual world.

Long live UO!
