"Braving Britannia: Tales of Life, Love, and Adventure in Ultima Online” & “Braving Britannia: Tales of Melancholy, Malice, and Peril in Ultima Online” are are now available for purchase on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats: https://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/series/B08LDN437H
With the first two books complete, I'm accepting submissions for the third volume!
ABOUT THE PROJECT: As a longtime UO player (retired) and author, I've written a series of nonfiction books about ULTIMA ONLINE, its impact on the MMO industry as a whole, and the people who've played it. I'm out to answer the question, "What do you do in a game where you can do ANYTHING?" These books help drive home to readers why UO is/was an experience that has yet to be replicated by any other game.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
I want to hear how Ultima Online changed your life. Did you have an experience inside the game that made you look at gaming, life, or the world in a different way? Did strangers become lifelong friends? Did you have an experience just begging to be shared with the community? Was it thrilling? Was it funny? Did it shake you to your core? I want to hear about it!
The form below will help me learn a bit more about you (and help me stay organized). Feel free to send it to others who may be interested in contributing.
NO ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTIONS: To be included in the books, you must be willing to share your real first and last name and where you currently live. No other personal info will be shared (unless it is important to your story). YOU MUST BE WILLING TO BE "UNMASKED."
