Origin: The Final Goodbye

Filed under: — Stormwind @ 11:04 am

Richard Garriott hosted a final farewell party to Origin at his new place on Lake Austin last night. Many past and present Origin faces attended to say a final goodbye to the creator of worlds we all loved. A bonfire provided emotional release as we burnt many relics of Origin’ s past.

Fortunately, Ultima itself will live on with the dev teams and projects moving to California.

I took many photos, though some are blurry due to the nighttime darkness and a shaky hand on long exposures. You can find the photos here.

We created worlds. Goodbye, Origin.

    Thank you! Having forgotten my camera, I’m glad to have a chance to get some pictures to keep for my own memory’s sake. It was really great to see so many people there.

  2. Thanks for sharing the pics, it was great to see the last hurra! Even if I was never a part of OSI, you were always a part of my lives through the worlds you created.
