Ultima Online is a graphical massively multiplayer online role-playing game, released on 24 September 1997, by Origin Systems. It was instrumental to the development of the genre, and is still running today.
Over time the Undead Lords established factions on three servers, called “Shards”.
Atlantic: Upon release UDL established a faction on the Atlantic shard
Catskills: On December 22, 1997, the Catskills shard was released and UDL moved the faction from Atlantic to Catskills.
Siege Perilous: A special ruleset shard that launched on July 15, 1999. The idea behind the shard was to create a more “difficult” and challenging shard for UO veterans.
UDL was widely known for developing, organizing, and providing some of the finest events ever held. Past events include a variety of duel formats including singles, pairs, triplets, and class based. Additionally, UDL had hosted quest-based events ranging from thefted brides, lost tomes, and haunted house where the visitors were our prey.
