Hi all!

It's great seeing Cove active again. I first started UO in 2000 (Lake Superior shard for some reason), moving to Europa near the end of 2005 where I joined BoC. Imho UO has never been bettered for roleplaying, and I'm glad to see free-to-play has brought back the community.

After logging in a few times since Endless Journey, I've been absent. My gaming room ceiling needed completely replacing and replastering, which meant the room also needed painting. Due to this, my PC has been packed away longer than expected.

Once set up, though, my time in UO will be limited. My wife and I have a baby due in October, and my first novel is being published. Between a new baby and trying to squeeze in writing (as well as my day job), my UO time will be limited!

For anyone interested, my first novel, Resurrection Men (by David Craig), will be published as an ebook on 31/08 from Amazon, itunes and other such sites. The paperback comes out around the 22 October (same date the baby is due!).

Below is a link to the press release if anyone's interested.

I've made a public facebook page with book updates and photos from real places featured in the book (those still around).

Meanwhile, I'll hopefully be back in Britannia in a week or so. I see Cove is at war with Vesper again - good to see the old traditions being kept alive!

My book, Resurrection Men, is now out as an ebook! If anyone's interested...


https://elsewhen.press/index.php/catalogue/title/resurrection-men/

The bottom of the above link has links to sites the ebook is available from, such as iTunes, Amazon Kindle.  The paperback will be out in late October.

Glasgow 1893.
Wilton Hunt, a student, and Tam Foley, a laudanum-addicted pharmacist, are pursuing extra-curricular careers as body snatchers, or ‘resurrection men’, under cover of darkness. They exhume a girl’s corpse, only for it to disappear while their backs are turned. Confused and in need of the money the body would have earnt them, they investigate the corpse’s disappearance. They discover that bodies have started to turn up in the area with ripped-out throats and severe loss of blood, although not the one they lost. The police are being encouraged by powerful people to look the other way, and the deaths are going unreported by the press. As Hunt and Foley delve beneath the veneer of respectable society, they find themselves entangled in a dangerous underworld that is protected from scrutiny by the rich and powerful members of the elite but secretive Sooty Feathers Club.
Meanwhile, a mysterious circus arrives in the middle of the night, summoned to help avenge a betrayal two centuries old…
