Hello all. When I was a young (younger) nooblet, I used to hang out at the west brit bank because there were lots of people there and it was an exciting time. Now being a gm of the guild Order of Saint George on Sonoma, I've noticed since the birth of Malas all that wonder and community has gone. Yesterday, while touching up on OSGs rune library, I went through about 15 rune books to find vendor houses, player houses, and player towns totally gone. I made a book with 18 locations where houses could be placed. Something just isn't adding up for me. Brit bank was the heart of everything and now it is totally abandoned. I think many UO players who have come back find it hard to adjust because so much has changed. I do understand that change is good but for the newer generation of UO, they have no idea what it used to be like. Crafters would work from Brit smithy shop and hunts would be assembled whether guilded or not. I do believe that EA has definately brought UO back and many old vets are returning, but we have to bring that old splendor back. Something has to be done, besides a make-over, to get people back to the way things were. Brit Bank is an icon and on some shards it still is. We have a vendor house in Luna Square but we try not to hang around Luna. I think the old vets can understand why. Can EA make a way to make West Brit Bank bustling again? I believe so but we have to make it happen. All Sonomans, I ask that you stop by brit bank more often and let's bring Sonoma back to how it was. Hail all Sonomans!
