    It's more likely than you think!


    Hello, I come from a very strange background with UO, and I officially only started playing yesterday, UO wasn't so much as part of my life, but it was kinda always there sitting on the sidelines. I Briefly played on a privet RP ever back in 2002 I think it was, but I never got anywhere with that character, none of my stats exceeded 33% all I did was josh around.

    I always was fascinated with Ultima as a entity, I played just about all of the single player games ( with the obvious exclusion of Ultima 8 and 9 , I followed Ultima lore factions philosophies and events from the bench, watching game new sites in a same manner I read newspapers. And then just last week I heard that Lord Blackthorn was crowned king, " What? My favourite character became the ruler of Britannia? AND I MISSED THE CORONATION?!" A torrent of rich and juicy cusses followed soon after, which in the aftermath left me wondering where did I even learn to swear like that.

    Bottom line, clueless newbie on the scene! I joined up Atlantic since I heard it's the place to go for RP. I' am currently in the process of running around in ringmail and bating pigs over the head with sword... ADVENTURE!

    Actually you can call customer service and have them to remove the free trial account status from the account now and then apply the code. Or you can just ride out the free time and then apply the code when you activate the account.

    Are you still using a free trial or have you paid a monthly subscription?

    He bought the Stygian Abyss new account + 30 days code.
    That one can't be applied to an existing account. :(

    I've made the same mistake several months ago and had to create a new account using that code to be able to use it.
    The two weeks of training I've done with the trial account were wasted.
