The Origin Gallery: Mudders of Invention

Raph Koster, known also as Designer Dragon, has been cleaning out his garage, and marked the occasion of Ultima Online’s 15th anniversary by tweeting a pair of scanned images of an article entitled Mudders of Invention from Point of Origin, the internal newsletter at Origin Systems.

He graciously agreed to allow the Ultima Codex to re-post them.

The article itself was written by Ultima Online developer Edmond Meinfelder, who is now apparently a senior software engineer at ngmoco:), and talks about the interrelationship between UO and MUDs and the MUDding experience of most of the then-new additions to the Ultima Online team.
