Well it seems I may have over estimated the allotted space in our newsletter. Since I don't want to spam everyone with another attempt I thought I'd just post the content here so you can read the rest. What can I say, first time using that feature.


 

 

Greetings from UO Phoenix!
 
I'm very excited to write our very first bi-annual newsletter. It's been an amazing first half of the year and so much has happened I hardly know where to begin. We've certainly seen our share of trials and tribulations, but we have also overcome these challenges and have seen a lot of success. We're still young and growing as a community, but veterans will often tell you that being young and making that climb to the top is the best part. Where we go from here depends on our willingness to stay the course, continue to defeat challenges as they come, and persevere to great success!
 
Events
Valentine's Day  - Defeated Putrid and his horde of daemons hellbent on ruining love and compassion in our world.
St. Patrick's Day  - Braved the cruel and lawless island of Buccaneer's Den in order to seek out mysterious rainbows and claim our fortunes.



Easter  - Vorpal bunnies invaded the farms of Britannia and nests could be found all over with colorful eggs inside.
