Broadsword Embraces Pride Month: New UO Store Token Pack Sparks Controversy



As the calendar flips to June, gamers worldwide know it's not just the summer heat that's turning things up. Pride Month is here, and it seems Broadsword is making their own colorful mark with a special UO Store Token Pack. This move aligns them with other corporate powerhouses, like Anheuser-Busch and Target, who have recently thrust their support behind the LGBTQ+ community. It's a bold step that has sent ripples through the world of Britannia.


The news has ignited fierce debates in Luna, the buzzing heart of commerce in UO. The mix of reactions is as diverse as the player base itself. An anonymous character confided,

"This is fantastic! I've always felt confined by the Male/Female dichotomy during character creation. How about a slider option instead of these outdated male or female choices?"

However, not all shared this sentiment. A disgruntled player threatened to pull the plug on all his accounts, saying,

"This is repulsive! I'm sick of seeing Broadsword wasting time on things none of us asked for! Yeahhhh Buddy!"

Broadsword, the puppeteer orchestrating these changes, has yet to comment on the situation. Will this move prove to be a masterstroke that enhances inclusivity in the game, or will it deepen divides in an already complex community? Broadsword is offering this “LGBTQIA+ Token Pack” for the rather humble price of 5000 Sovereigns.


The new pack brims with unique tokens and features. Here's what you'll find inside:


· The Non-Binary Gender Token: Now, your avatar can rock both male and female gear in true Britannian fashion! A neat side effect: the notoriously pesky Semidar and Succubus will cease their aggroing towards characters originally created as male.

· Rainbow Soulstone Token: A token that resonates with the spirit of the Pride Month, this vibrantly colored soulstone is sure to make your stash stand out.


· Facial Hair Growth and Sculpting Cream: In a nostalgic nod to '99, Broadsword has reintroduced this fan favorite. It's high time those characters initially created as female were given the chance to sport some killer facial hair.


Whatever your stance, one thing is clear: in the world of Ultima Online, just as in the real world, the fight for inclusivity is far from over. Here's to more dialogue, understanding, and unity in the days ahead. Stay tuned, Britannians - the game is afoot.
