Ultima Online: New Tameable Creatures; 20th Anniversary Party Update

Broadsword Online Games have released another update for Ultima Online Publish 97 on the Test Center shard:

Today we have updated TC1 with the latest version of Publish 97 which includes the following changes.  This release includes a mandatory client patch, so make sure you patch before trying to log in.

We are incredibly grateful to those who have taken the time to head over to TC1 to test and give feedback on Publish 97.

At this stage we have incorporated all major feedback related to pet training progress and pet customization.  We have also introduced some of the new creatures that can be found in Britannia – with still more to come!  We encourage everyone to continue testing the progress and customization of pets to provide valuable feedback as we move towards our next release.

The new tameable creatures, as enumerated in the Publish 97 change notes, are:

  • Dragon Wolf – found guarding Level 6 treasure chests in all facets except Ter Mur
  • Frost Drake – found guarding Level 6 treasure chests
  • Frost Dragon – found guarding Level 7 treasure chests in Trammel or Felucca
  • Palamino Horse – found in the Second Age
  • Sabre-Toothed Tiger – found in the Valley of Eodon
  • Triceratops – found in the Valley of Eodon
  • Lion – found in the Valley of Eodon
  • Blood Fox – found in Ilshenar
  • Frost Mite – found in Tokuno
  • Ossein Ram – found in Deceit

Additionally, there’s some good news for those of you who had been hoping to attend the 20th anniversary party for Ultima Online, but weren’t able to book a hotel room in time:

I am happy to announce we have increased the number of registrations we can accept, if you have not already done so please register today!  There are a very limited number of spaces, so do not delay!  Once we reach capacity you can once again register for the waitlist.  If you need to cancel an existing registration or wish to inquire about your registration status please contact us immediately.

We have updated the event page with information about the room block at the Hyatt Regency Dulles.

Stay tuned for additional updates as we get closer to the event.

Or, well, there were more rooms available. There may still yet be, but I am a few days behind in posting about this.
