    Hail and well met!

    I don't know if any of you remember me, maybe Galen or Dermott and a few others from Lake Superior might. I used to play on Lake Superior as Sevan - a mage/bard. I had/have a house on what used to be Magencia beach - it is still standing even as the city remains in ruins and at times haunted. I have decided to finally make my return to UO and while I was excited to finally upgrade and try the new SA expansion.

    I just upgraded my main account to SA and am downloading both the EC & 2D clients as I write this...I know that I have alot of catching up to do and while I see quite a few familiar names & faces on the boards - I am unsure what to expect when I return to Brittania <sp> for the first time since the final events of the Magencia Scenario. I hope that some of the vets still around can help bring me up to speed and answer a few questions for me.

    * Magencia When can I expect my beloved Magencia to be rebuilt? What will happen to the (few) houses that still exiist on the island - do I presume that we will get to keep our houses when/if Magencia finally is rebuilt? Should I just pack up and move somewhere else? Is there new housing spots available in the new SA areas? Any large spots for large tower or castle anywhere? If I can place a large house it may be worth my while to move now.

    * Shards - I was/am on Lake Superior. I have been on there since I first joined during the time of trammel's creation (UO:R). The main reason I stayed on LS for so long was always the strong RP community - specifically the ongoing saga of the High Council and the like. However, I am told that now LS (and other shards?) is now often a ghost town and I might want to start over and/or transfer to a new shard. Please tell me it is not true - is LS dead?

    * SA - I am going to start a new character (deleting one of my started but never finished chars) as a gargolye to really experience SA from a new player standpoint. However, what templates are best suited for the "change" from human/elf to Gargoyle? My main char is a Bard/Mage and I also have an GM Merchant (Blacksmith etc) and an old Orchish Archer.

    I am sure I will have more specific questions later - but any advice on where and how to (re)start at this point will be much appreciated. I really miss UO and can't wait to play!

    Your friend Galen is now on Great Lakes I believe... If you knew him well.

    Your welcome to come join us on Great Lakes if you need anything or what have you to get "up to speed" so to speak feel free to PM me.

    *Edit*.... Hehehe almost forgot! Welcome home to UO.

    Hail and well met!

    who knows when mags will get rebuild, with the layoffs over at EAMythic, it might be sometime. AFAIK if you have a house there you can stay you just have to put up with the haunting.

    The RP community on LS is still alive though not as many as there used to be.

    just my 2 cents but if you going to make a gargoyle character, you might as well make him your crafter mule for the racial bonus with the new imbuing skill and to enhancing items.

    farewell, safe travels and welcome back!

    Thanks for the info. Wow he jumped to Great Lakes - he was a key player in the LS High Council for the longest time. So is Great Lakes the best for roleplaying now - better than LS?

    Hello there.

    Yep, it's me who is on GL now.

    I can certainly recommend it, the RP and the Event Moderators.

    Hmm, is that code for something nefarious?

    Malag is far from Nefarious... NO I meant bring him up to speed on all the changes ingame.... and more importantly if he did defect to GL with Galen... fill him in on GL RP so he don't feel completely lost.

    Oh....The devs hinted the next event cycle would involve rebuilding Magincia, but that was said before the firings. So I don't know what's going on now.
