Redlow.net

Welcome to redlow.net, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

Homes by Relk

Sometimes I think I'm an architect. In a video game. Throw a little more OCD on the fire.  I take screenshots of houses I've designed in UO.

Translate Britannia

Like a putz, I agreed to build this language translator for some languages spoken in this ancient game, Ultima Online.  I maintain the code, but not the appearance.

A Night With Redlow

A UO player whose character was "Rok Hagor" interviewed me one evening. It was.. uh, real?

Interview With Ex-Seer Pann

In 2001 or 2002, Ultima Online's unique volunteer program consisting of Seers, Counselors, Troubadors, and new player advisors (whose exact titles are eluding me!) was canceled. These were players working for free to help the game including running quests (like a dungeon master in D&D) and helping - by hand - new players adjust to the game. I interviewed one of the seers shortly after the program was terminated.

As Britainnia Turns

ABT, or "As Britannia Turns", was a soap opera set in Ultima Online (specifically, Great Lakes). Featuring fictional characters based on real life players' own fictional characters, it's only surpassed in meta-y-ness by a novella in the personal section called 'The Undiscovered Facet'. There's about 36 episodes, written between 2000 and, perhaps, 2004-ish.

Alvantar

Once, around 2009-2010, I ran a private Ultima Online server. Although it's been offline for several years, I keep the "patch" file notes here for my own reference and for anyone else with an interest in running it or their own.

The Elements of Roleplay

"The Elements of Roleplay" is an RP guide written for Ultima Online, which garnered a lot of attention and re-posting. Although it's written specifically for UO, the suggestions and advice here could certainly be applied to any pen&paper game or computer game with player-to-player roleplaying elements (the few that still exist).

An award-winning poem.... from a computer game. Also, about a computer game. Can you say nerd? I can. I smell it too!
