´╗┐In 2018, at the annual GDC convention, a panel of Richard Garriott, Starr Long, Raph Koster and Rich Vogel, they looked back on 20+ years of UO and what went right and what went wrong. One of their shining examples of things gone right was the focus on community. At the 41:55 mark of the video they do a shout out to The Syndicate as we were the first and oldest guild involved in UO (and are even featured in the original print strategy guide they put out). You can see the video at youtube HERE
