Given that all other references to Iuz’s imprisonment in official game publications use the CY date, the CY anomaly is usually considered to be an error. Long before the Archmagi Zagyg moved into the deeps of the great castle that came to bare his name, he took up his dwelling in a house north of the fledgling town of Yggsburgh.

The main flaw I see in UW, is that it is not the whole thing. I don’t know what will become of Castle Zagyg now.
