The BS&R “Map Room”

The Britannia Search & Rescue “Map Room” is as a Treasure Hunters’ Rune Library, and is a direct reference to the main room of our Trinsic Operations Center, on the Felucca facet of the Baja shard. The Map Room contains runes to all the treasure chest locations in the Felucca facet on Ultima Online’s Baja shard.

There’s been some links added to the navigation area on the left of our site, and the direct link to the Map Room’s “sub-site” is www.hurm.com/guild/maproom/.

Freeborn Press Inkwell Runs Dry

After several months of thought I have finally decided to close the doors of the Freeborn Press for good. The paper was 3 years old as of this date, and offered news on a constant basis, with a small lapse of publication around the beginning of 2000.

Due to the small niche market Baja entails, the repetition of news in a few arenas, and an increased level of community awareness, I felt the Press was no longer needed. Chief among my reasons was a desire to move on to new projects or hobbies outside of UO, although this does not mean I will be giving up my UO account. I�ll just be scaling back my time spent on UO related activity.

I�d like to take the time to thank all the people who poured their time into the Press over the years, mainly Rich & Nobody. Thank you for your dedication in programming and submission help.

I�d also like to thank all the contributors who submitted news articles, offered advice, and viewed the editors as non-partial Baja news gatherers during its run. Thanks to Ursula, Atrius, Pat Factor, Lizzard, Kvarno, Shard, Azalin, Bren Star, Desmond, MacDeath, Crys, and anyone else I might have forgotten that helped enhance the sites content. There were so many over the years that its hard to remember them all.

Thank you, the reader, for your continued readership over the years. It took a lot of hard work and potential playing time to keep the project going, and we are extremely glad you supported us with your subscriptions. In our absence, we would like to direct you to the Baja News Section at Stratics.

In days to come we hope to keep the entities page operational and on possibly on the front page, so Baja citizens can still access links to the various communities on the Shard.

Here�s to three years of memories on Baja.
