I cannot say enough about Andrasta. I started my journey in Britannia November 1997. I met up with a bunch of really nice fellas and we enjoyed being a guild of 6 for maybe 6 or 8 months. Then due to all the trials and tribulations of Atlantic getting it's server straightened out and the beginning rules of how houses worked (and us losing our guild home - twice - to thieves), they all left. Andrasta and her group adopted me and I enjoyed playing with them for many years. Around 2000, I wasn't around Britannia much. I gave away my Mage Tower that was in the Trinsic Swamps and let my account sit for a long time. Finally around 2006, I closed my account. I think I reactivated it in 2007 or 2008 for a short period but closed it again. I decided to do another 14-day trial recently - my old account appears to have been deleted. Something about Britannia always keeps calling me. I cranked up my ancient ICQ and sent a message to the only person on that 100 UO player list whom I know was still around. Low and behold, Andrasta responded. She has given me a safe place to stay, gold to get started, some nice duds (worth a small fortune), and lots of other things that would take most people years to collect. I know she's bribing me to stay but one cannot discount a good friend like that. She even had some of my old things that she has found over the years that had my name attached (does anyone remember the disaster AOS was and that UO gave us gifts to ease the pain, including a rose that said "YOUR NAME survived the launch of AOS"?). HOnor needs to be paid to this lady. A rare one indeed.
