Brad (if you didn't catch his name) sent us in this shot of Ultima Online: "So much fun with vendors! This is a shot of Angelica's on the Chesapeake Server -- a popular shopping spot in Felucca to grab gear on the go. It was one of the few player-owned vendor spots in a protected zone near Lord British's Castle. This would have been taken around 2002. Notice the detail of the fish tank made from stacked cloth and the flowers made with an onion and two cooked eggs!"
Yes. Notice Brad's eggs, people. In them you can see the reflection of your failure. Aw, just kidding!
I like to think that there was at least one soldier on each side of that battlefield who had a brief jarring moment when he thought that his side's own flaming ball of death had just boomeranged back at him. Then he'd get a good laugh and die in a crater with his pals.
"I stumbled upon this work of public art in my wanderings," she said. "It appears that the sno-cone vendor and yeti cubimals were going on a lemming-esque migration."
Well... of course they were. That's what cubimals do.
"This one is from the Limlight Gorge gate camp in the Great River. I stumbled across this one recently and noticed that this table has unlabeled versions of the Great River zone map and the Stangard (the zone's social hub) map. I thought it was a nice touch to see the maps used in-game."
