Goodbye Calandryll!

While browsing the stratics forums I came upon a disturbing post by Calandryll:


From the following post at the stratics board (

Over the past five years I’ve written countless posts, but this one is by far the most difficult as it will be my last as a developer for UXO.

Today was my last day at Origin Systems. It’s been a great ride filled with wonderful memories and unforgettable experiences, but all good things must come to an end. While the decision to close OSI certainly pains me, my reasons for deciding to stay in Austin are mostly of the personal kind and I leave happy to know that UXO's development will continue.

I know for the most part that I have written the majority of developer posts here, but I want you all to know that there is a great team of designers, programmers, artists, world builders, marketing professionals, and executives behind UXO. Without their tireless work I literally wouldn’t have anything to post about. I’ve had the privilege to work alongside some of the most talented people in the industry and I hope wherever my travels take me next I get the chance to work with them again someday.

I don’t really have much else to say, other than I’m sorry, and to say thank you. Thank you for all of your support over the years, both towards UO and UXO. Thank you for letting us into your lives and for believing in us. Thank you for taking the time to read our posts, designer diaries, and interviews. And most importantly, thank you for your participation on the boards, e-mails, and IRC chats helping us create and improve these games. I also want to say thank you to the website operators and moderators for all of their wonderful support for UXO. I consider myself truly blessed to have had the opportunity to share UXO’s development with all of you.

I look forward to the time when I can share whatever I work on next. Until then, take care and thank you again.

   I believe I speak on the behalf of many of us at MMORPG.COM when I say that we are sorry to see you leave Calandryll image. You were perhaps one of the best developers any of us have ever met, your contributions to this community and all of the other various UXO communities was simply amazing. It pains me deeply to see you leave. You will be missed Calandryll, thank you for all the time and effort you've put into the UXO project and also all the time you've spent reaching out to the fans of UXO everywhere. Good luck with life and any future gaming projects that you work on. Goodbye Calandryll, we'll miss you! image
