    dreams.jpg

    Luna has a new mysterious figure roaming the Rune Library. Mumbling of dreams and madness under their breath whilst paging through books, and tome after tome of magic, a wandering fool or is this dream a reality?

    It has been said they have visited the adventurers in their travels, but yet they seem to always appear deep in thought at the library, is that but a dream? Or could this be a waking nightmare...

    How do they hold onto such a weight around their neck... a weight perhaps otherworldly. Or perhaps the weight of knowledge.

    The ground has cracked as if an energy around the Rune Library folded within itself. A mysterious tree dripping with magical energy float above an endless pit. The surrounding fauna infected with a blight.

    Monsters and wraiths are seen inside the walls of Luna, how have they broken through the barricades? Did they come from below?

    upload_2021-5-13_23-44-51.png

    The citizens of Luna are on edge, rightfully so. To arms against Duma or heed the warning of a maddened ghost like figure.... Maybe it is all a dream as Duma says, and we just need to go back to sleep, dreaming to wake.

    upload_2021-5-14_0-27-6.png

    Even the town cryer seems to not be sure of their own reality anymore...

    Duma has been seen in Doom, but while adventurer's ignored their words, and focused on their winnings...

    2021-05-14_22_26_07-Ultima_Online_-_Duma_UOAlive_2.0.png

    Luna's ground began to shake. Portals have opened up and more vile creatures have begun to flood the inner walls. The shopkeepers have boarded up their shops only the Mayor and Town Cryer remain to call to arms heroes!

    2021-05-14 22_46_58-Ultima Online - Duma (UOAlive 2.0).png

    The portals seem to be directly linked to the Rune Library as it has taken quite a turn with the ground seemingly becoming corrupted and seeping with evil magical energies.

    2021-05-14 22_47_42-Ultima Online - Duma (UOAlive 2.0).png

    2021-05-14 22_47_26-Ultima Online - Duma (UOAlive 2.0).png

    As adventurer's returned from Doom, the noticed the rune libraries gruesome appearance.

    Duma was there but with a snap, it was TWO... they Spoke but seemingly split: "The dream is pulling me again... I can only dream for so long before I too am asleep."

    unknown.png

    The apparition of Duma disappeared in a dark portal, a one way dimension. and Deamons followed out perhaps chasing the dreams of those who were in Doom. The portal, may have been opened by Duma, yet, it was not Duma as there were two...

    The adventurer's fought hard and were able to fight the wave of Deamons.

    2021-05-14 23_23_35-Ultima Online - Duma (UOAlive 2.0).png

    Then Duma re-appeared and spoke "Be gone dreams. Nightmares are meant to be slept" as they seemed to close the portal and returned to one form...

    Luna is still under siege, Duma back to their ramblings and reading through the tomes of the library!

    2021-05-14 23_48_16-Ultima Online - Duma (UOAlive 2.0).png

    Duma spoke, letting the adventurer's ask three questions. But the adventurer's made jokes, and laughed at the mumbling mad spirit. The Rune library now has cracked even more and portals appear on the pentagrams inside the library itself!

    2021-05-16 23_48_20-Duma - ClassicUO [dev] - 0.1.8.58.png

    Monster after monster flew from the portals upon the adventurers. Until it was quiet, but the town still fighting back the other cracks forming!


    Today, Duma appeared to adventures. Their message and tone had changed.

    "I dreamt a nightmare. I never dream.
    Heed my warning adventurers...The Nightmares are becoming stronger.
    The power is too great.
    You must wake up!
    YOU MUST WAKE UP!!!!"

    ramblings.jpg

    As if they became lucid with fear?

    The library itself now has a new crack!

    stars.jpg

    New monsters flow into the streets! The blight is spreading! Duma still rambling in the library, more bothered than usual, perhaps because there are no heroes, only rats.

    2021-05-17 00_27_43-Photos.png

    Giant rats do seem to have appeared, as if manifested from a dream in Luna amongst so many other monstrosities from all over the worlds vilest places.


    But what is this? A clue? What does it mean?
    2021-05-17 01_04_20-Duma - ClassicUO [dev] - 0.1.8.58.png

    There was little time to decipher it as using magic in this area specifically gate and recall called an army upon the adventurers, Duma showing up briefly to... help? It is still unclear!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It seems that since the adventurer's while making headway on figuring out the "ramblings" of Duma, Luna has felt it's first major crack in the rift. It is a hole so large, it swallowed over 6 houses!

    [​IMG]

    The rune Library seems to be becoming even more corrupted as well:

    [​IMG]

    This has mobilized the Sosarian guards to closed the gates to Luna for only the most brave adventurer's!

    [​IMG]

    The ensuing invasion of monsters from all over the lands has many confused, but could there be a reason why so many different monsters are invading one location?

    [​IMG]

    Does only Duma know!?

    [​IMG]

    We need your help! Head to Luna to stop these invasions! Can you stop them from doing more damage to the grand city of Luna?

    After the first wave of invaders from all over the land poured into Luna some adventurers, more than others, fought tooth and nail to keep it back. And for awhile it seemed quiet.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    But it seems with the adventurer's not getting closer to figuring out the origin of the rifts in the ground of Luna, another invasion has begun! Duma warned them, but they seem to be content picking up shop and sipping ale,

    [​IMG]

    while Luna burns!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    So again Luna's ground has cracked more with magic flowing out as freely as their ale.


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The library has almost become completely consumed, with the ground being torn apart around it, almost engulfing it. Even the library itself is becoming corrupted:

    [​IMG]

    It seems Luna may be lost. But perhaps there is hope still. Time will tell...

    Duma has been sighted warning inhabitants of the land again:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another shrine of sorts has also been located with burned runes all around it in Zento! It has to be a clue? Did Duma do this as they did with the Runebooks?

    [​IMG]

    After Wave after Wave of what seemed to be extreme champion spawns coming through the cracks of Luna, the citizens have banded to together to hire Surveyor John to move the coveted Rune Library before it may be too late.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The catch? Surveyor John needs time to properly move all the runebooks and library in the midst of this disaster and has boarded it up so no one can enter while he works on it:
    [​IMG]

    To raise the funds Surveyor John has requested the citizens are being offered a special one time item (OOC: one per PERSON, IP, All Accounts) to help reach the goal before it is too late?

    [​IMG]

    Will this be enough? Have they given up? Once the library is moved, will they just let Luna burn? What does this mean for the rest of Sosaria? Duma seems to chosen to stay during de-construction rambling about the dreams still.

    After what seemed to be a stall in any movement and more cracks forming in Luna, the citizens have begun a council. Read all about it in the Weekly UOAlive Paper:
    https://uoalive.com/forum/index.php?threads/uoalive-weekly-newsletter-30th-may-2021.657/

    But it seems a new road block has appeared in ending this nightmare, as men and their money are hard to separate. Surveyor John has condemned the Rune Library!
    [​IMG]

    However, this act of greed, has triggered a new invasion on Luna! Pirates have begun to raid the city walls!

    [​IMG]

    This nightmare truly is becoming a reality...

    The latest updates on Luna have been covered by the UOAlive Reporters. Here are the latest headlines!
    (read the entire articles at the links)

    https://uoalive.com/forum/index.php?threads/uoalive-weekly-newsletter-13th-june-2021.661/

    [​IMG]


    The portals have dissipated, the library is almost ready to be moved, and the hoards of invasions seem to have stopped completely! As a result, many of the vendors and merchants have returned to Luna. What a turn of events following such a brutal invasion of undead stopped by the brave adventurer's of UOAlive. Is the dream over? Have we awoken? The destruction to Luna is still massive and will take a huge effort to fix, if it can be, but for now, respite...

    [​IMG]

    Greetings, Surveyor John!

    You said you are able to relocate any home or building? Does this include the Rune Library itself? What would your charge be to relocate the Rune Library away from Luna?

    Attention Surveyor John,

    It has come to my attention that attacks on or near my library of runes, located just east of the center of Luna, have increased in intensity.

    As such, I have concluded that relocation of the said rune library is in the public interest. Due to the communal reliance upon this community depository I am in the hope that the cost of relocation could be reduced or even absorbed.

    Could you please contact me with a quote?

    Regards,

    All the Sols (but mostly Lylah)

    Ahh, the owner of that monstrosity. You know how many times I have gotten lost trying to find the rune I needed to get to the right brothel!? You sir are a stain on my love life... that aside...

    I have done a full survey of your "Rune Library" *mumbles about it being a maze chastity belt to his sex life*

    I am not sure if you are aware, but currently, Luna is under major siege... Yeah I know... shocking.


    So here are my quotes, because this is not a quick job,

    • There is some serious magical energy coming from your "library", so I need to close off the entire area for my team to get in there and start work safely. This means no one but my team will be able to access the library for the time being.
    • How important are all those damn books? Cause if we can just burn them, it would signficantly reduce the price, as packing them all up and maintaining their integrity(even if they are confusing and gotten me and my mates lost on drunken nights looking for the tavern... *mumbles*) will add a lot to the price.
    • Due to the size of the project I will need to hire 10X the mules and mercenaries to keep my crew safe.
    • A deposit Payment of 1 million gold MUST be made up front.
    • No refunds on this hell hole of a job.
    • And will need you to sign this release.. don't worry, just the normal garble... Surveyor John and crew are not responsible for any damages or accidental erasure of runebooks that are not direct gates to the best and finest brothels of Sosaria... sign here:
    contract.jpg

    Ok once that is signed and I have a deposit, I will begin work.

    The total cost will be the following:
    • 500 Pack Mules 100k
    • 100 Mercenaries 500k
    • Runebook preservation 3 million
    • Structural integrity due to magical interference 3.5 million
    • Labor + Misc 2.5 million
    Total: 9.6 million gold
    Deposit of 1 Million gold

    Obviously, I suggest you just let it all burn with that shit hole that is Luna, but, hey I get it, some people just have the compelling need to hoard... I still will require the non refundable deposit. I am sure you will have no issues, just make an only fans or some kickstarter shit. Sexy Runebook parchments sell well I hear. Hope to hear from you soon. (OOC anyone who donates to this total amount can only put in a maximum of 500k each, may adjust depending on the participation)

    Update on the Rune Library de-construction:
    • Duma is a pain in my ass! This mumbling buffoon keeps giving my workers hell for recalling to their favorite pubs when they are off the clock. Something about waking up... dreams being bad.. blah blah blah my men need a break!
    • We have gotten some of the structure's foundation free, but each time we do, the whole damn building starts to shake. We are putting up supports to help, but it is not going to be easy. Who built this piece of shit!
    • We are still waiting on payment, as this is slowing our ability to continue to hire mercenaries that are dropping like flys, causing my workers not to show up.
    • Is Luna a ghost town? I haven't seen anyone trying to fight for the town. Bunch of cowards. All I hear is the moans of wraiths and despair as we work through the night. Let it burn, for all I care, but these goddamn wailing sounds are making it hard to get a nap in.
    Myself, I am working to get this monstrosity of a maze moved but as we pack the runebooks it is almost as if the more books we cram into crates, the more dream wraiths appear. I am not a superstitious man, but you have a serious haunting going on here. Need to cleanse this place or something, get a damn priest, I am not paying for that!

    Hoping to get the last of the foundation released by the middle of the week, if we can get enough ale to push past the PTSD that is this... well... fuck... no other way to put it, "Nightmare".

    Ghost stories aside, the job will get done. But you better have my goddamn gold!

    P.S. Well ...we seem to have struck... lava? best let some of the other house owners know, kind hard to stop LAVA.

    Update on the Rune Library de-construction progress:
    • We have most of this shit in boxes, including runebooks. I can honestly say I have never carried such heavy weight in my life. What are these things made of? LEAD?! I swear we almost killed a pack mule with one of the boxes.
    • Duma needs to shut their damn piping hole. Talk about waking nightmares, this thing doesn't sleep. And they keep trying to pull the damn runebooks from the boxes. Something muttering about "too many dreams".
    • Ya'll need to be on the next episode of Hoarders..
    Regardless of this crap... we are ready to lift the foundation and get the fuck out of this shit hole of a town and then possibly use a few of the recall runes we stole borrowed to get shit faced drunk. Heard the Three Stone Tavern is a good spot.

    As soon as you hand over the cash, we will get 'er done. End THIS nightmare. Save your "precious rune library". Bunch of old dirty books. I much prefer my steed.

    For the Immediate Attention of Surveyor John:

    John,

    Some of our community have expressed an interest in helping to relocate the runebooks as a group. The hope is that this effort may expedite the relocation efforts of you and your team.

    Another alternative plan has also been raised to possibly first relocate the Library to a remote area of a facet. This aim of this is to see if, by doing so, it would ease the problems currently occurring at Luna.

    Could you please contact me regarding this urgent matter with any new issues these possible options would create for your removal team.

    To date the community has raised a little over half of your quoted removal fee.

    Yours in anticipation,

    Lylah Sol

    Are YOUUUUU facking kidding me? I'm not drunk, you're druhnkkk!.

    You wanna do wut with the boxes of books?! Expedite? Was the 700+ pack mulessss and work of the over 100 carpentersss not enough for youuuuu *point in the direction of Sol, kind of, mostly wobbles*? I ask*hiccup*... i asked-ed for you to mark better runes to pubs so they could blow off steam to harderly work, work harderrr, but noooooo, MR. MAZEibary... You know there are noO refunds you ungrateful shit. And def no discounts if that is what you are trying to doooo!!!!!!!! *half hazardly points and stares again*

    *gathers himself for a moment* I mean on the other hand, I am not going to argue you hauling these damn things if you want, each box is about 500-1000 stones. nooo waiittt... nooooo you... you.... *gathers himself again* I still have to pay the frackin' workers though for their time and the boats I commissioned to move that damn library maze. So don't think you get out of that obligation you wipper snapper. I mean hell, I would kick these boxes into the void below your damn hell hole of a library I have been busting my workers asses over for the last week+, if they weren't so damn heavy, and I would rather save my foot for your ass whiooooooopppping!

    [​IMG]


    *throws his ale against a wall*
    And your other suggestion is that I put my entire crew at danger to test your "thee... thorr.. thear... theooorys!?" HA.. *stops speaking abruptly*
    I mean... actually for the right price... *shakes his head* *slurs somethng*
    Break your own backs and pay me my money, or pay me my money to haul that damn abomination to the remote corners of the world, a keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey piece of information you forgot to mention.....

    I thought you were going to Zento like the rest of the deserters. But I suppose Ice Island or even a remote island is better than pink frakin trees. YUCK. I mean at this point I will be happy to just drop your damn "library" in the middle of the frackin ocean.

    *thinks long and hard........ this takes about 10 minutes too long*
    Hold on a second, what did you say? 5 million?! My price was 9.6 Million! Oh no sir! nooo sirrrrrrrrrrr, the price is now 15 mil. *goes to do a Spartan kick at Sol, but misses completely* get out of MY face! I'll put you in the void. Until I get my payment, none of these options are on the table!

    *puts on a very serious face and looks quite angry... angryerer..."


    *at this point his hired mercenaries have gathered and hear the commotion now standing behind Surveyor John in force now*

    You have three days to get my money together... before I pack up and move on to my next project, let you deal with this mess. Time is money, you bootlicker. Now get off my damn property before I have these gantlrlele... gentelmen remove you.

    UNTIL YOU PAY MY PRICE AND DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO COMPLETE OUR CONTRACTED MOVE OF THIS SHIT HOLE WITH YOUR ADDED ADDENDUM TO GO TO SOME FACET OF CHOOSING OR HAUL YOUR OWN DAMN BOOKS AND LET THIS LIBRARY BURN TO THE GROUND,

    THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMED BY ORDER OF SURVEYOR JOHN

    OR DID YOU NOT READ THE FINE PRINT OF THE CONTRACT?! THREE DAYS... THREE DAYSS!!! HAHAHHAaahahahahaah zzzzzzzzzzz*begins to laugh until he passes out and his mercenaries close the gap between Sol and John pushing Sol out of the Library*

    [​IMG]

    OOC At first we were limiting the 500k per player so no one did any crazy whale stuff, but seeing as things have escalated, I will remove that limitation. BUT before someone throws in 10mil... I would consider thinking like John for whatever you choose to do, he is a pirate at heart. So, women, booze, bribes, gold, ya know... may be a way to de-escalate the situation and also get what you want. Also you must choose one of the three: Send John away, havee John move the library to your location of choosing, or attempt to move the boxes yourself in 3 days.

    Ahoy mate. I have been asked to reach out to ya on behalf of the citizens of the realm. You know how these lubbers can be, fickle and lazy. If it were up to me we would let the damn city of Luna burn to the ground. I have no use for a landlocked city, but for some reason this lot wants to try and save it. At least try having the library moved. I understand you have provided a quote for moving that damn thing and I hear due to some extra requests you have raised the price. I understand where you are coming form, especially after all the work you and your crew have done. What say you to some of my finest hooch as a peace offering and honor the original price for these Luna-lovers?

    Also I see they have been voting on locations for the library would you give us your professional assessment of them and let us know which ones are suitable for supporting such a structure. Soma may require your keen eye and know-how to add support structures in some of the locations. But I am sure a man of your experience and talent will have little challenge.

    First location, small island in the star field (small circle)
    [​IMG]

    Location 2:
    [​IMG]

    Location 3 & 4: (these two are in the abyss and appear to be in "safe zones". There is also some concerns around accessing these locations if not properly trained and if magical gates and such could be used by anyone?)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    We thank ye for your efforts thus far and hope you reconsider your original proposal.

    Thank ye,

    Captain Schuyler Bain

    *Begins to write his letter back on a similarly tattered map from his pocket, already plundered of course*

    Hello there fellow sea faring... might I even say friend?

    I am not going to lie, Sol, has rubbed me the wrong way since day one, between his confusing maze nightmare of a rune library, to the constant pressure of evil in Luna. This project has been one of the most challenging de-constructions I have ever had to force my workers to do!

    Plus between them complaining of no sleep due to the wailing of monsters throughout all hours of the day and night, I tried to find at least one or two runes to good brothels for them to ease the pressure, of course on THEIR DIME and TIME... But I couldn't even find that in this shit hole.

    I might say my reaction was justified, but I also want to be done with this.. then again, my reaction was justified... how does Duma say it? "Nightmare?" I dunno what the hell Duma says they just won't get out of the damn way while we pack these boxes. I'm about to pack them in a box!

    Why yes, I would love to share my PROFESSIONAL assessment, thank you for recognizing that, instead of just assuming I would be moving this monstrosity to ungodly far locations way out of the scope of the original quote...

    From what I see and seem to understand of your reasoning for the moves, I would say getting away from magic is probably a good idea? But then again, if it were up to me, I would hire an exorcist. But from your choices, The small location in the Star Field seems to be the smartest, cut off from the rest of the area and people, even though, fuck em...

    Location 2 is just asking to fall into the ocean, these books are heavy, this structure is cracking at the seams, nope, no way to make it stable. Blame Sol for shoddy craftsmanship. Shoulda hired me to build it in the first place, maybe would have avoided all of this shit!

    The dungeon, dunno who suggested that crap... seriously? From one monster infested place to another.. yeah worst idea ever in the history of ideas... and I have had some horrible ideas before.

    As for how you will get to either of these locations is completely different, we will need to setup either magical bridges or portals. I can throw that in as a bonus if you find me a good long pair of legs to ease the pressure of this entire move, I am stressed and need a good... release.

    • I accept your offer of the finest Hooch(i'll be the judge of that), for myself, don't tell the workers they will feel entitled to it!
    • A good bedding at your renowned establishment with a pair of legs to keep me warm.
    • And I will honor the original quote.
    I am ready to remove this maze-brary in 2-4 days from it's foundation and move it to the location I mentioned above. Just need you to sign this contract here as our scope has changed... again... *mumbles* don't worry, just the normal garble... Surveyor John and crew are not responsible for any damages or accidental erasure of runebooks that are not direct gates to the best and finest brothels of Sosaria... sign here:

    Ok sir...

    What say you?! Do we have a deal or not?! Where am I moving this damn monstrosity?

    The dead are rising up from depths all over the City of Luna. Either you will need to pay for more mercenaries or you have 24 hours to honor our deal. That or I am leaving this place to the undead, and no I am not unpacking a damn thing.

    Ahoy there John!

    Apologies on my late response, but you know how these landlubbers can be. One minute they know what they want and the next the don't. Sometimes I miss my old crew... wasn't nothing a barrel of grog or belaying pin couldn't solve! But alas those are not viable options with this lot.

    After much discussion they have settled on the Star Isle location, thanks largely on your expert assessment, as the new home for the library. They would like me to ask for assurance that there will be a bridge that will connect the isle to the mainland as well as one of those fancy magical moongate things so that there is easy access for all and included, of course, in the proposal you so generously offered a few days ago. To be honest if I can't reach it by water I don't imagine I will be spending much time there. Of course, unless some tinker-type invents a ship that will navigate the stars... now that is something I could hoist my colors for.

    I believe you have received the gold you have requested and I am ready to smuggle the 21 bottles we discussed to you at the location of your choosing. As for the evening of entertainment, I believe a victim errr... umm... I mean volunteer has been selected and I will gladly offer up my quarters for the evening, you need only name the date.

    You have my mark for your paperwork and records as representative of the community and the library proprietor will also provide signature should you require it. Please consider yourself welcome at the Three Stone Tavern whenever the winds blow you our way.

    Signed,
    Captain Schuyler Bain

    Excellent, thought you were about to Brutus me!

    Yes, I can make everything you've already asked for happen, that is what I already said... been on land too long it seem there Cap.. ears getting land logged.

    I will force let my workers know to have this place lifted off its foundation and moved to your island by the end of the weekend. beginning of next week. Maybe I will save a bottle of that fine hooch to break on the side of the library to celebrate.... *smirks* yeah right, waste of good ale on a shithole of a "library". Just be glad to not have to deal with this Duma's crazy anymore. Constantly working against me my workers. I am starting to wondering if I am dreaming, two undead invasions in one day, yeah let Luna burn. Onwards and upwards! Or in this case, left then right, then hop on one foot, turn left, back pedal three steps.... seriously, WHO MADE THIS MAZE OF A LIBRARY?!

    Meanwhile, I have already made myself at home at your lovely establishment. Piss and regret, my two favorite smells.
