UO Newsletter #42
The UO Team is happy to announce we will be sending out a newsletter periodically so you can stay up to date on the latest in Britannia!
Please encourage your friends to sign up on our web site.
Hope everyone has a safe spooky Halloween this year! Players across Britannia are enjoying new additions to Halloween favorites like Trick or Treating and Pumpkin Carving, as well as new additions like the Treasures of the Sea! We love seeing everyone’s houses decorated this time of year!
The first release of Jolly Roger is live on TC, so if you haven’t check it out the publish notes give them a read and head on over to the forums to give us your feedback! We have some exciting things coming in our next release of Jolly Roger including a brand new interface for mannequins that will help with equipment comparisons as well as the next chapter of our ongoing High Seas event. Can’t wait for you guys to check it out!
The House Room sets have been very popular additions to the Ultima Store and we will be releasing some new ones in the coming publishes, including a Torture Room and more!
We have been evaluating the Player Event Coordinator program over the past couple of months and due to lack of participation we are doing away with the PEC position. If in the future the need grows we will revisit the program at that time. Otherwise if you have any issues or needs please contact me at Mesanna@browdsword.com.
We have come across a few players that are still titled and/or robed as a companion. If you are robed or titled as a companion of any rank you must contact CS or myself to get the character cleaned. Please know that if you are seen out in a robe without calling us we will take action against your account. Please contact us to take care of the account.
With the latest iteration of the Castle/Keep contests we want to let you know we will only be implementing the top 3 designs chosen by players. We love seeing the creativity of our player base and look forward to seeing which 3 designs you guys pick as the next 3 Keeps introduced to Ultima Online!

EA ORIGIN – ORDERS, CODES, AND THIRD PARTY RESELLERS
Sovereigns Coin Codes purchased from EA Origin have to be redeemed on the Account Center; you cannot enter these in game.
Sovereign Coin Codes that have been redeemed are bound to the EA Account they were redeemed on and are only usable by the accounts linked with that EA Account; Sovereign Coin currency may not be transferred.
If you are having issues with your EA Origin purchase, follow this link to resolve the issue.
CODE PURCHASE DELAY
You may have noticed that Origin Store purchases made did not arrived as expected. The Origin Store enacts reviews on all transactions to safeguard against fraudulent purchases, and these reviews may take up to 72 hours. Unfortunately our Billing department is not able to expedite or circumvent this process. However, players who have questions or concerns regarding a store purchase can contact Origin Support for assistance using the below steps:
1) Go here, https://help.ea.com/en/contact-us/?product=origin&platform=pc
2) Select topic* – select Orders
3) Select issue*
4) Click on “Select contact option“
5) Sign in with your EA Account or click on “Get help from an advisor without logging in.” if you’re having trouble signing in.
THIRD PARTY RESELLERS
We would also like to reiterate that the Origin store is the only guaranteed provider of codes for Ultima Online. The validity of a code purchased from a third-party seller (be it a friend, in-game acquaintance, or recommended site) cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, any codes we find to have be fraudulently obtained will be disabled and an account that applies any of these codes will have that code removed from said account. This can result in the loss of game time, character slots, expansion access, Sovereigns (and the items purchased with them), in-game items and more. Please be advised that we cannot assist with any issues stemming from codes purchased via non-Origin means; you will be required to contact the vendor from which you purchased the code for further assistance.
