Hail Adventurers!

The kingdoms of Britannia and Ter-Mur are attempting to build outposts in the Stygian Abyss where they can get early warning of any new dangers that might spring from its depths. There is much work to be done and they need your help! Will you become the new Ranger of the Abyss for Britannia or Warden of the Abyss for Ter-Mur?

This quest series will give a number of new rare items as well as other prizes. The grand prize is a special housing plot in the mysterious Stygian Abyss! There are two Stygian Abyss housing plots per shard and one lucky human or elf will win one and one lucky gargoyle will win the other.

This event is divided into two quest lines of three parts each. Each character may do only one quest line. The event begins on April 5th with parts one and two; part three will begin on April 12th. Parts two and three may be repeated daily to give you a new chance to win something rare and glorious. The Stygian Abyss houses can only be won during part three of the series and are rewarded by chance for completing the quest. Each quest line will end separately when someone wins the grand prize. We will be posting the winners of the houses for each shard on the UO Herald each day as they are discovered.

To begin the quest, humans and elves should visit Dexter on the second floor of Castle Britannia in Trammel. Gargoyles should visit the Lens Maker at his home in the Holy City of Ter Mur (the city near the entrance to the Abyss). If you are playing on Siege, Dexter and Sir Geoffrey have been moved to Serpent’s Hold fortress.

Both quests will take players around the world and through the Stygian Abyss and require the Stygian Abyss expansion to participate. If you win one of the houses on your shard, you will receive a ticket that will entitle you to the prize and that ticket is tradable or sellable within the game. When you have the ticket and you are ready to have the house transferred to you, contact Mesanna at barmstrong AT
