    First off, my main shard is Catskills. It's a nice shard, but tonight I thought I'd give Siege a try. I was hoping to have made the "Welcome to Siege" event last weekend, but didn't make it. Sounded like I missed out on the fun!

    Tonight was actually a nice change of pace. Not that I accomplished much, but starting a character from scratch turned out to be not as painful as I thought. Thought I would try a Sampire as I've never made one of them before. Hopefully this template does well on Siege! I'm glad I read the boards before creating my character, as I was not aware that you couldn't buy skills. Started with 48 Bushido, 48 Chiv and 2 Necro. He'll also have Swords, Anatomy, Parry and Tactics.

    Started off in Brit to see if anyone was there and to find out where the NEW house was situated. Did not see a soul around, but I did find the house! Went to buy a horse so that my travels would be a bit faster. Gee...only 1256gp for a horse...:( Ok, I'll try another town. Obviously Brit is overpriced. Huh, guess not...

    Headed to Luna. Apparently there's a 100gp toll to enter the bank from the moongate side...?? Don't know where my head was at, but I thought it was an NPC saying that. Thought "Ok, Siege is a bit weird...but whatever floats your boat" Once this NPC started following me the lights went on. :loser: Told the guy (sorry didn't catch your name) that I was poor and couldn't afford the toll. He asked me to prove it, so we went to the bank and I did a balance. 964gp! I think I shocked him by the fact that I was new to the shard! Anyhow, he and his friends were nice enough to point me in the right direction on how to make a bit of quick gold.

    Which reminds me, if anyone would like to buy some cloth bolts, leather or arrows/bolts let me know.. I don't have much yet, but I'm working on it.

    So off I go to beat on some critters, gather some wool, leather and feathers. Get to thinking again, this running around on foot sucks, I need a horse! Start kickin' a little Mongbat butt... Wohoo! Averaging 36gp per kill! I'll have my ride in no time!...until I run across Mr. Albertus Maximus and his little friend (GD) "I'm going to hurt you". I think "Yay! This will be my first death on Siege!" I wasn't disappointed. Mr. "I'm gonna eat you for dinner" hits me for something like 12,000 points. The old shirt and pants couldn't quite withstand the claws and teeth... :stretcher: I obliged Mr. Maximus with his murder count, then showed myself hoping for a rez. No such luck, but whatever, a healer was only 2 screens away. Get rezzed, go back to my body and see that my 28 leather, 23 bandies and 708gp are gone (bye, bye horse..). :( But, he was nice enough to leave me my scissors and katana and I nice book signed by himself! Thank you Albertus!

    Figured I'd head back to Luna and ask if anyone could spare me a horse. Start towards the moongate and "Bam!", get hit by Mr. "I'm gonna rip your face off" again... Oy vey...

    Find the healer again and get to the moongate. Get to Luna and hey, guess who's there... Or at least his corpse was... By the way Mr. Maximus, I returned your book to ya!

    Anyhoo...just wanted to pop on the boards to say Hi to everyone and share my first couple hours on Siege. So far, so good! Sorry for babbling.

    Hello and welcome. You're in good company, that lovely dragon just chewed my newbie char too, only he didn't leave me squat :D Busy making her a new suit atm and trying to remember what the hell else she had in her bag.
    The only loss I regret is her unopened paragon chest that she was training detect hidden on.
    Give me a few minutes and I'll make you a new suit too.

    If you're using the new 'chat', log in to the Siege channel.

    Thank you both. It was a good day indeed! I'm thinking if this keeps up, I may have to drop one of my houses on Cats... :)

    I'll have to read up on the new chat system. Let everyone know there's a new mark in town. I'll be sure to check out Bart Town as well. Got any horses in the loot box??

    Let me start by saying: Your post made me laugh off my chair. Welcome to Siege. This is a great shard and as you can see, very busy with the killings. I lost count how many times I died tonight but, I love it. Nothing like 100% action. Tonight was not my night. :gee:

    I hope you give Siege a chance. Trust me, you will not regret it.

    Usually there is a lot of PvP action every night. And the best thing about Siege is that you always have to look over your shoulder. :gee:

    Again, welcome to Siege. :thumbup:

    I like how you are starting off on siege with a Sampire :) . Those weapons are hard to coem buy, and the suit is rather costly when you die :)

    If you need anything give me a holler. I play the Sampire as well and may have some extra stuff for ya.

    Sorry I don't get this, we already have a "General Global" chat channel, why do we need one more?
    Also all the channels are Siege channals if logged i to Siege.

    Do a created channel allow moding or something?

    Guess I came of a little wrong here, I was just wondering why making a second global chat.
    Also I was asking if it was possible to mod a created chat, did not get an ansvar to that.

    I really don't care what chat we do use as long I don't have to switch between them to find the one used right now.

    We don't yet know what the final design is going to be, only that we won't automatically be logged in. I suggest when the publish goes live and it's working properly we decide which channel we'll all use and log in to it.

    Darkwolf, hit me up when you are on. I will always help out some former Catskillians. I spent nearly 12 years on that shard before moving here. Trust me, once you get going here, you'll dread having to log into Cats for anything :thumbup1:

    Is Darkwolf your handle in game? I happen to be carrying around a bank check for 50K waiting for the first noob to get some cloth bolts to me. I am a tamer who just started healing rather than healing with magery, and i suck, so I go thru some bandies! Now that I have a really fun bow (thanks to Wulf!!), I will be going through feathers soon as well. If you need craftables, there are several of us here who can help set ya up. Asking here is usually the best way to find us non-PvPers as we usually know better than to broadcast what we are doing in chat. :gee: Check out the player communities and give a holler on chat when your on...which ever one is the default.

    Oh and one thing about Siege...just cause someone is red, doesn't mean they won't help ya. Do check around before trusting anyone with a high price transaction. Again, color means no diddly.

    Hello Everyone!

    Firstly, sorry Petra for taking off so quickly from the boards. I received the "Thought you were coming to bed" from the wife, which the husband in me quickly translated to "Get your butt in here!".. Luka, I'll let you know when I am on to get you some cloth bolts.

    Thank you all for the offers of help, both in this thread and in PM. It will be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, I do not get on UO as much as I used to, so if you don't hear from me very often don't take it as me being a snob, or that I'm ditching Siege. I have a feeling I'm going to like it here a lot!

    My 2 characters on Siege are Arctic Wolf (Sampire) and Dark Wolf (thief). I'll most likely be spending most of my time at the start on Arctic to get his skills up and figure out "life on Siege". The reason for this is I'm thinking that I'm going to be running into a few Albertus Maximus's and would like to at least have a bit of a chance on getting some payback. Although a nice, stealth, shadow jump, stab in the back could be fun too! (Is that how it works???)

    I know absolutely diddlysquat about factions, so for now I'm going to treat every town as a guard-free zone. I did pass by a few reds in Luna that didn't even give me a second glance. I even followed them around a bit to see if there was going to be any action. Unfortunately there wasn't.. Oh well....next time!

    Read up on the chat system, so I think that I'll be good to go next time I'm on. I'll make sure to log into the Siege channel.

    Ok, since I'm rambling on again, I think that I'll end this post here...

    luna has guards . reds are allowed in guard zones as long as they dont break any further rules .you can attack a red freely in town so while they are there, they are probably waiting for you to flag on them , giving them full rights to fight back.

    the towns without guard zones are buc's (as usual) and now brit minoc yew glow trinsic vesper and whats left of magincia .

    the old lands cove jujelm jhellom and serp hold have guards . (not sure about occlo)
    some of the public gates are guarded .those youll have to watch for the "you have entered..." message

    the elf tree (heartland) has guards but you must cross thru unguarded yew to get in and out.

    all new land towns all have guards . the new gargoyl city has blue "refugees" who will attack reds on sight .
    im not sure if its strictly reds or negative carma folks? iether way sence most reds are negative carma its roughly the same thing .

    im sure some folks have ways of killing you in a guard zone so you cant count on complete safety anyhow. (even if they die too they usually have a buddy waiting)

    one should always watch their back on siege anyhow . its that challenge we live for.

    Welcome to Siege!

    The first days are almost always some of the most enjoyable! Everything is new so just getting your first cloth from sheep is an adventure! Enjoy it, and glad you've been having fun.
     
  22. Welcome to Seige.
    I am one a host of former very long term Cats players who have made it home here. The shard has a smaller population but since the first day I played here I was never NOT greeted by someone, whether it was getting pk'ed or getting some help from others (some red) who saw I was new here. Our White Council alliance chat almost always has someone there to say "Hi" at least so you realize you are not in a wasteland. Cats seemed to have lots of players running around ignoring eachother a lot a year and a half ago when I left.
    Some of us former Catskillians are in Gilfane House Silverwood and live in the player town Gilfane which is in Malas. We would enjoy meeting you. ICQ 13071026 to Branwyn of Errol if you see her on. Also you would benefit a lot from joining NEW for a month or so to get a good start here.
     
  23. Welcome to Siege and NEW Dark/Arctic Wolf.

    Thank you Ellie and Shalimar! So far Siege has been great! NEW has been such a great help to me. Sorry Shalimar for jumping the gun on starting my tamer/mage... I'll pay for it for not starting Vet at 50....

    Once I get some skills under my belt I'll be out and about. I'll be sure to check out Gilfane House and the player run towns.
