Rains of Mantis

Ultima Online Community,

I have created for your enjoyment a small movie-short (Rains of Mantis), with the help of my friends, that relate to the social concerns of the most recent event, particularly regarding that of collecting eggs. As most of you know, over a short period of time, finding eggs became rather difficult and as part, this story belongs to all of us, as we all share together across every-server, the same issues. In this we are the same.

The PAWS Soulforge on the Pacific Server is the keeper of memories of long-ago player run city, the City of Paws, named after a fishing village before Trinsic was even established. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of this game I have been developing a book series entitled: “Sandals of Time”.

Over the course of this year, I have released 2 of the 5-book series on the Pacific server forums and once all 5 of the book series are finished, I will release the entire work for those here that enjoy lore, reading and the like, officially on your server.

I plan to produce further movie shorts, as time goes on, as this is the first one that I have attempted. I hope you find some semblance of joy watching (Rains of Mantis), as I have enjoyed making it for you.

The general themes of The PAWS Soulfroge are always the following:

  • To remember is to find your way
  • This is the story of your realm and everyone has a part to play.



Best regards and fare thee well,



-Palm Copenhagen

This is peak UO content and it is a shame no one else is recognizing this.
Thank you for the kind words, many people helped in the project. It was just fun to share something with everyone they would enjoy. I'm glad you liked it.

I am hoping to do another small movie short after the 25th Anniversary.

Very good work!
Thank you sir!

I already have an idea for a next video, maybe September, as my other projects are taking up too much time. But I'll need to recruit some player killers to kill me a bunch. Different types, large groups of PKs single PKs and even brand newbie PKs.

An Inspiring story of perseverance and never giving up, even well beyond the point that most sane people should continue. I thought it would be fun to use Kung-Fu theater voice overs and sound effects. The entire story will be like that meme that caught on for a while, where: [you see yourself this way, but the rest of the world sees you like this]

Half of the movie is an epic adventure of a lone champion rising to meet the challenge, at least in his mind and then the casual discord or team speak banter of dudes killing people who are kind of easy to kill.

A kind of Nod to ImaNewbie. I figured I'll play the newbie. Never know maybe he gets lucky at some point. Could mix in a little British humor of the triumphant idiot.

Regardless, I am happy you enjoyed this one.

/cheers

I would love to see another one. Very creative - good luck with the planning for the next one, sounds like a fun idea. Would be happy to lend a hand if ever needed. :)
