Another quick one: a tale from the shady underworld that clings parasitically to the grand-daddy of modern day MMOs, Ultima Underworld. It’s a thrilling yarn of swashbuckling hackers, despicable pirates, vast hoards of gold and farms full of bots, forced to dig for gold and repel attacks by other bots. It is told by a former scoundrel, who has now turned all of his pirate gold into more reputable currencies, and is selling the empty hulls of his pirate fleet. Can it be long before he weds a fine governor’s daughter?
