    Note: 22-24 Runs of the event are expected! With a special hard mode version to be run as the final event.

    You awake to find that nightmare has become reality!
    Britain has been taken over by the undead!
    No spellbook, no weapons, no supplies with danger all around.
    Do you grab a weapon and try to fight your way out?
    Search for resources and craft supplies for your fellow adventurers?
    Scrounge for magical supplies and summon help from the ether?
    Untold rewards await anyone who can make it out alive!

    Who knows what horrors await outside the safety of the Inn?

    PSA: Reminder to all players that there is a real world out there and UO:R is best served in moderation this time of year.

    OK chums, times up!

    Not trying to start an issue but......are there any measures to lower the chances of any certain group taking control of the overworld event?

    The overworld event will be a bit larger this year. However it is a felucca event with all the dangers of out of town activities. There will be conflict no matter how it is designed. But we will be spreading it out a bit this year.

    Can mage/bards participate in this event (the instanced event, i realize everyone can participate in overwold event)? Or is it more geared towards crafters and dexxers? I have never done it before. What are useful templates to take along?
