    As many of you know @Skye Wolfbane recently submitted a great article to PCGAMER.COM and it made the front page of PC GAMER within only hours..

    [​IMG]
    (Link: https://www.pcgamer.com/my-life-as-the-grandma-guildmaster-of-ultima-online-forever/)

    We think everyone can connect with this article for sure and it deserves its spotlight.
    Before it made the front page we already did some ads up for the article, posted on our facebook and twitter. With this we also presented Skye with a "Journalists notebook" which is a custom spellbook.

    [​IMG]

    In this article she mentions how aged her current computer is and how it still runs VISTA. This is something we feel our community and the staff at Ultima Online Forever can help with.

    We have placed a Donation Chest at the West Britain Bank. Each donation will be evaluated to current value and then be converted to real life money. This will enable the Ultima Online Forever community and team to purchase a brand new computer for her.

    [​IMG]

    Simply drag 100 donation coins or more into this chest, and within time we will ensure "Momma" @Skye Wolfbane gets a brand new computer to enjoy Ultima Online Forever from Ultima Online Forever.

    (Note: Every single donator will have their name posted).

    Regards,
    Ultima Online Forever Team

    I read the article today, and it compelled me to login again....I am sorry I left. This server is really the best mmorpg I have ever played. I was gone for a while and lost my houses and all my possessions... It will be hard for me to rebuild my empire but I think I will try since I have been inspired by Skye and will definitely donate to the cause! I may soon be asking Skye to allow me into the guild as well.

    Trin was my first guild here on UOF, great bunch of people. I've since moved onto other guilds but always had respect for Trin.

    Great job on the article, Skye. Hope you get a shiny new PC. :)

    I just wanted to tell my story but the fact it's motivating people to play UO, and in particular, UOF, that is just an awesome bonus and I'm glad to see that.

    This is awesome - hope grandma Skye gets a kick-ass computer. I hope she doesn't get nervous by all the bright lights and liquid cooling :D

    Read the article and was excited to see UO on the front page of one of my daily websites to read at work. Great article, so great that it made me come back here to wipe the dust off and log into the forums. I don't play UOF, but I'm going to create a new character just to donate when I get home.

    I don't know Skye, but a lover of UO is a friend to me. :) Hope it all works out!

    Also, I would like to say that my heart dropped when I had seen the donation chest for Skye. I thought that this was a medical issue or that something had happened to her. So glad to see that this is just us donating to buy her a new computer and that she wasn't hurt physically in any way. WHEWWWW!

    The above is all truly necessary for a Grandma... The triple 4K monitors because of her failing eye sight, she needs the better resolution so she can actually see UO when she's playing... The high-end ergonomic keyboard to help with her carpal tunnel, it elevates the wrists just slightly, to create a nice straight line through the wrists which is much less painful... The ergonomic gaming chair, for good posture, which helps her numerous back problems... The Bose gaming speakers, because honestly it's a better investment than the hearing aid she needs... and the glowing alienware PC, helps light the room up so she doesn't trip when she has to get up to go to the washroom every 12 minutes... I mean honestly it's all pretty mandatory!

    No grandmas were injured during the making of this post... .
