Grimmwold Private Ultima Online Shard has closed as of July 2013, after
seven years. A total of 11 and a half years of running private UO
Shards. Mith and Lara, and many others of the community have moved
to facebook to continue connection. In addition, there is on-going
discussions of building a guild, town or city in Lord British's new game
Shroud of the Avatar.
Status Sept 2013:
Rivera) has made a pledge for Lord level that gives
him access to a "town plot" in SotA. Anyone who wishes to gain access to
the alpha/beta needs to make a pledge of Adventurer
(cost: $45.00) as soon as possible. In addition, Mithril (and
Kaganos) will be setting up a kickstarter program to see if we have
enough commitment to reach the level required for "city plot".
Details will be sent out soon via the newsletter, join the conversation

A long, long time ago
there was a great and terrible war. A war that men fought for their
freedom against the Etherian race. A war so destructive that the
world was almost destroyed. A war that the gods themselves stopped and
broke the world in two.
Into a mundane world of
the waking known as
Kingdom and a magical world of dreams known as
Grimmwold. They erected a ward between the two worlds, the
Horn and Ivory, and for men to pass into Grimmwold they had to do so
in dreams while they slept.
Years and years passed and
many journeyed nightly from the Kingdom to Grimmwold and lived out great
Adventures and upon awakening brought back the tales of their great
deeds. The tales of the Big Bad Wolf, Goldilocks, Little Red and a
Sleeping Princess surrounded by briars, entered the Kingdom and gathered
together to form a very special key - A book that if one read or heard
the stories read from it, would allow one to travel to the world of
when one slept.
So now travelers in this
time when petty Kings and Wicked Lords rule the Kingdom and the world
seems pale and weak, as thin as watered down milk - now a new group of
Heroes and Villains hear the tales of the lost and hidden world again
and come night they sleep and enter Grimmwold!

allow players the freedom to craft the world through character driven
events. The world is based on a combination of Mythology, Lore and
Adult Fairy Tales.

memorize difficult world history.
