    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!

    I met a few people who helped me out with some beginner goodies, and I enjoyed just chatting away with them to the point I actually bought Stygian Abyss hours after beginning the trial... aaand no it turns out I cannot apply the Stygian abyss to a existing account, I need a new one ._.

    Greetings Grimbanks,

    I believe that you joined our alliance last night. :) Welcome.

    At the origin store - there are two options for purchasing Stygian Abyss:http://store.origin.com/store/ea/search/?keywords=Stygian It looks like you purchased the new account option rather than the upgrade option. There is a slim chance that you might be able to swap the code for an upgrade code by calling the Origin Store (Sorry - can't find a number - but (866) 543-5435 might do) but typically they consider all sales as final. The other option is to just start the new account using the code you were given and then pass any stuff from the trial account that you are on over to the new account. Since you are only a day into it - you won't lose much progress and you might even be able to use the day's knowledge to get a better start.

    I'll be online in alliance chat in 4 or 5 hours and can help more then.

    Good Luck!

    Taz

    Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!!!

    Good luck with everything. I do not play on Atlantic, so I can't really help you out there with anything, other than saying Welcome and I hope you find a great home :)

    Welcome Grim, if you can't get the store to switch you to the upgrade version, hold off on starting the new account. We can offer you sage advice on the best way to begin your new characters, to give you a good start. Ask around in alliance chat tonight, one you will get some helpful tips!!

    Again Welcome and I am sure we will cross paths soon,
    Lew

    So far so good, I participated in two 'raids" of sorts, first fighting a Cthuluhu like beast at a pier, which I couldn't reach with my sword and died constantly from it's insane aura that dealt damage.

    Then we did runs on Treasure chests with the drakes jumping out like ninjas from the ground and lobbing my head off in a instant.


    Fun.
