Birthday High Jinks for Ultima Online's Richard Garriott
From the article:
The evening was billed as "Magic at the Manor," featuring performances by 18 of the world's leading magicians, but with a twist that had Garriott feeling particularly giddy. In the party invitation, itself a cryptic message that had to be heated in an oven to display the URL where guests could find details for the event, he vowed to re-create a long-forgotten method of sawing a woman in half — then reveal how the trick was done.
The article describes past parties themed around the Titanic and Beyond Thunderdome, and leads into the current party. Magic is intertwined with a mystery as guests are lead through Garriott's castle.
The finally sounds worth the wait as Garriott leaves his guests with these parting words.
"It's all about secrets," said a grinning Garriott. "I imbue my games and my parties with the process of discovery, with a physical manifestation of unreality."
