    I guess 369, going by one Earth year equalling one UO year.

    Edit: one Earth year equalling five UO years. That's what happens when I skip morning coffee.

    I am embarking on a new quest, I am writing a book about my first avatar's life in UO. I came across my old Packard-Bell computer (don't laugh), with a quite an amount of screenshots I remember almost everything that happened in most of them, like the time I came across my first Ogre I was so entranced in how he looked , (most of my gaming consisted of pen and paper) that I was dead before I knew it.But I appreciate your responses

    Each RL Month = one UO Year. If you want to know what year it is today in UO just go to our website http://uorpc.net/ It always gives the current date.

    Either your posted date and calculation are off, or UOGuide is wrong. I don't know enough to say which is correct.

    Accoring to UOGuide, it should be about BY 369 (5 BY = 1 EY). Your website says it is BY 493 (12 BY = 1 EY). So, where does the official information come from?

    Aha, I was wondering how one Earth day equals 12 UO days, but one Earth year equals five UO years.

    Does anyone happen to know if this is how the single-player Ultimas did it?

    I was wondering if there is any significance to the Ultima zero date... somewhere during 1939 I think. It's not a family birthday for for Richard Garriott's family (he is only 52) and didn't find anything related to UO or fantasy, such as Lord of the Rings. Wizard of Oz's did first show in August of that year, but don't think that's it. Maybe it has no significance.

    Anyone?

    I came over to UO when my Air Warrior buddies left to form a guild on the new online game. Still remember the Air Warrior days fondly.

    Was that way for a long while then some idiot over on the DEV team decided to make it 10 times more complicated than it is and changed something messing things up far as I recall.
