    I was a huge fan of the single player games what seems like ages past now. I acquired UO, I'm not sure when, on my computer some time ago and never managed to get it to work. I thought it was broke and never got it to work.... I couldn't even explain how this happened. But, smiles of smiles, in trying to clean up my hard drive and getting ready to remove files, I was sent to pages and sources and figured out I was missing a client! Been at it for a couple days, and not gonna lie, it was a wall-meets-head frustrating first experience. But stubborn as I am, and having found info I muchly needed, and that a community that seemed nonexcistant still exists, I very much want to reach out and connect! I'm on Lake Superior (don't hold me to it) but looking for peeps to play with. I've managed to figure out the basics, have been playing a samurai, about to throw chivalry in (keep reading about this template) and wouldn't mind starting over on another shard. I'm always looking for some decent rp, not much into powergaming, but the actual experience. Where would y'all suggest a move that offers a great guild and community? I'm still on the trial, but would definitely invest if I could find a semi active group. Can anyone give some great suggestions!? Help me figure and find the better intricacies hidden in UO!?

    Welcome to our world of UO. It can be a bit frustrating at first. There is a lot to learn, but have fun and don't worry about asking questions. If you can't find help using the help chat, try general chat. There are more people on during the weekends so it will be easier to find people. There are a lot of people who rp, even roleplaying guilds. You might also post on the Lake Superior section. I play on Lake Austin, but have been told and have read postings that your shard has great people. Of course, you are welcome to try our shard also. I''m not positive about trial accounts, but I think you can make a character on our shard also.
    Ps. Careful of red moon gates, those go to fel where people are allowed to kill others.

    Lol, fun fact; I made that last post via mobile. So it appears I'm actually with Lake Austin. Can't stop laughing, and just glad I didn't try to connect with anyone in Superior yet. You seem pretty nice and I'd definitely like to catch up soon and figure things out more. Um, I've seen an ICQ shared (?), but otherwise I lurk as Arynn Sangious...

    Lol, now I'm really glad I answered your post. I'd love to help you out. My icq is 334814058, it comes through as Momdragon. My main is Rowan of Ump, also known as Lessa, Nikki, and mora. I try to play during the week between 1p-4:30pm pacific ( az ) time. I also play most of the day on Saturday. Let me know what time you play and i'll be there.
