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.

  1. 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.
