Post typed on the fly as I walk around. * Brit bank is redecorated, rather tastelessly, but no one is there. Great Lakes has become one of those Luna shards. Population has plainly declined substantially. * Wanted to see what sort of armor everyone is wearing these days, but apparently there are robes with stats now. I have yet to see an unrobed player character. * Wanted to see a gargoyle, but there are zero among the Luna bank people. Other than Luna bank, I have no idea where I would go to see another player. Were these a total flop? Does anyone have gargoyle characters? Welp, Great Lakes is a ghost shard, let's go hit Atlantic. * Hey there's a reasonable crowd at Luna, all standing on top of each other spamming. Someone is trying to sell his stuff on another shard for stuff here, so clearly this is where the population is condensing. * There are a whopping one or two characters among the crowd not wearing a stat robe. There are a couple of gargoyles, and I wondered what their armor looks like, but they're both in robes. * Brit bank is dead even on Atlantic. The age in which Brit Bank was "the place" in UO is officially over. There was one guy there, forlornly spamming for some event. * Hey at least Haven has a bit of a crowd. Every last one in robes. * Is that a general chat channel? Nobody is using it except for like one guy. How do I talk in it? Comically, the Mythic playguide tells me that this feature exists, but offers no instructions on how to use it. My macro list says alt+T is chat, but hitting that just makes it say "You are already in channel help". Asked a guy in sweet gear who looked like he knew what he was doing. He didn't know how to talk in it either, never uses it. * Oh well, let's go look around Luna and see how expensive crap is. The usual bunch of 16,000,000 gold leather armor pieces, check. Bloodwood Spirit 3,000,000 gold? Huh? Oh well it's Luna, I'll probably find another 3 screens away for 50k. * Pigments of Tokuno seem cheaper than I remember. Competition from those crafted dyes I think I heard about? Wonder where those are. * How the hell do I turn this chat off? I don't want to hear those two guys spam each other with what they're selling to infinity. * Natural dye is 350k for 5 uses? Either it's hard to make, or the people who can make it are just gouging, or the economy is so blown out that anything worth anything is worth at least 300. * Well that's a quarter loop of Luna. Wish I could remember that site that catalogs Luna with scripts, because this is bullcrap. Game needs an Auction House. Meh. I threw or gave away everything last time I quit. I'll never make enough money to be worth anything again. I could kill a thousand dragons and be 10% of the way to buying a pair of gloves.
