Good morning friends,

I wish taking down the Christmas decorations in real life was as easy as it is in Ultima Online! Welcome to a new year at Cataclysm, Avatars. We are confident that this will be our busiest year to date with the most growth and stable activity ever! We have a lot in store, the Expansion will be released as soon as possible and we have other innovative plans for the shard and service. We feel our status in the general freeshard community has grown and we are more than worthy of calling ourselves the Premier Old School Shard. Original Sphere, perfected! As always we couldn't do this without all of you, it makes the countless late nights in dim rooms working on CUO forever worth it! So to everyone, Cheers! Happy New Year! To 2018 with Cataclysm, and beyond!

Best regards,
