    Explore the Source of the Undead Scourge

    A new edition to the Halloween festivities will be a unique dungeon experience custom designed for UO:Renaissance.

    While combating the undead hordes in graveyards and during events players will have the chance to stumble upon a dark moongate that will allow them access to the source of the monsters.

    Players will find themselves in a strange dark underground city. Due to the extreme magical forces in this location players will only have a limited time in which to explore this location. Once the dark magic is aware of your transgression into this location you will be magically expelled.

    Note: This is still a work in progress location and the pictures do not represent the final design.

    New Content Hints
    - Players will have a set amount of time in the dungeon.
    - Once the time limit is up the player, any corpses and their pets will be ejected to the event lobby.
    - Players will enter at one of 4-5 locations based on the location where the gate spawned.
    - These entrances will be safe and free from combat and allow access to a variety vendor (critical supplies)
    - The dungeon however will be extremely dangerous. Normal Felucca rules will be in place.
    - There will be basic protections in place to discourage players from trying to camp/target the safe zone exits.
    - Each entrance will have some markers to help players navigate the new dungeon.
    - The dungeon will have 6-7 bosses, 10-15 mini bosses, and 10-15 support monsters.
    - A mix of classic Night of Horrors monsters and new creations for this dungeon.
    - On a randomized rotating timer various bosses will spawn in their dens for the player to hunt.
    - The dungeon will be active 24/7 however each players experience will differ depending on the amount of players/bosses active.
    - There will be new rare drops, rare spawns, and other desirable items to found in this location to match the difficulty.​

    After the Halloween event this location will change modes and will become an addition to our new player system, and be linked to 4 classic undead locations in the world (City of the Dead in T2A, Trinsic Cemetery, etc). This will allow our players to enjoy this new content year round rather than limiting it to once a year. The spawn will return to normal undead spawn with a few additions and will function much like the orc caves.

    Note: We are actively looking for our Role Playing players to help us perfect this content. So please contact me (Telamon) on irc if you want to contribute with post event ideas.

    I guess it is time to start finding groups to run with in preparation for the red blitz that will soon engulf these areas... The Lep cave idea was awesome unless you ran into a massive gank squad lol.

    Different staff work on different projects. Work on this started over a year ago. It is part of our long term plan to make holiday events less staff intense and more sustainable. So instead of the staff having to spend hours running manual events. This system does it for us.

    And yes this is primarily something Treasureman has been working on since last October.

    Factions and CUB will be our next major pacth. However those projects are more important to get right, than quickly. So they will take as long as they need to get them right. We are however slowly adding more help in other areas. Which frees up my time to focus on that.

    Glad to see you making use of the T2A undead city outside from Delucia. It was one of my main hangouts back on the old OSI days and will be cool to drive some action into T2A!
