    DUE TO A SCHEDULING ERROR, THE SATELLITE ISLANDS FOR BOOTY ISLAND WILL BE RELEASED ON THE 3RD AND NOT THE 2ND AS PLANNED.

    THE LAST BIT OF HOUSING (THE SATELLITE ISLANDS WILL BECOME AVAILABLE FOR HOUSE PLACEMENT ON MAY 3RD at 3PM CST

    BOOTY ISLAND EVENT PHASE 1: This is an ongoing and possibly permanent event. Booty Island was once inhabited by a society that worshiped a snake goddess. The sacrificed many people to try and obtain her blessing. When they finally got her attention, they received much more than they bargained for.

    The island has been stricken with a curse that turned all of its inhabitants into "snake people". The process drives all but the strongest quite insane. Your goal is to fight past the madness and attempt to cleanse the island of the curse. The curse is quite persistent, so even if you do cleanse it, it might pop up again sometime in the near future.

    While this phase of the quest is active, all inhabitants of Booty Island will be transformed into Cursed Ones. You will take on the form of an Ophidian and gain awesome strength. However, you will also become freely attackable by anyone.

    Kill other Cursed Ones will net you 1 kill point.

    There are also Cursed Totems on the island. You can capture these totems by collecting a cure buff from the witch doctor on the island and then standing by the totem. Only one person can capture the totem. This is whoever got to it first with the cure buff. It takes 90 seconds to capture a totem. You can start capturing a totem by killing the current person capturing it. A capture will net you 5 points.

    Points will be cumulative throughout the upcoming events surrounding Booty Island. Try to participate as much as you can!

    If you wish to leave the event, you can either log out for one minute or leave through the mine shaft.

    Booty Island Entrance: Recalling to and from the island during the quest will be blocked. Boats will also not be allowed for this phase of the quest. The only entrance to Booty Island is through the rear entrance (;)) dank mine shaft.

    Booty Island Required Files: The required files can be downloaded via the UOF Launcher. If you are having issues updating via the launcher, you can manually install the files from one of these two archives

    To install the files, unpack them into your Ultima Online folder. If it is the correct folder, it will ask you if you want to overwrite a few files. Make sure you click yes for all of them.

    I hope you enjoy the event!

    It shouldn't be "the place to be".

    That is the fine line here, we don't want to make this the only place to venture into that is worth your time.

    It will be new yes, but it won't be unreal loot drops etc to get people there, for sure. We don't need to divert people there as people will go there regardless my good man.
