I have not played any online games for about 3 years, but have leveled up and played on Everquest, DAOC, and WOW in the past. I decided to try UO because I was looking for the opportunity to play a online game that does not require me to be chained to my PC diligently trying to keep up with other players, or doing constant raids. After playing for about a week now I think I may have found what I am looking for in UO. I have a couple of questions. 1. Is there a shard that is primarily west coast players or mountain time players (currently playing on Chesapeake) ? 2. How does one seek out a good friendly guild in UO?
