So here we sit. allmost 11 years into this fine game, and i cant help but wonder what some people are hiding behind those Vet Robes? Are there players out there as addicted as me? am i the only one that has done as much character development as i have, or am i just one in a long line of players. so, here it is. i have waited years to post this, i guess i should call this thread "lets take them out and measure them, see whos is longest" thread. hehehhee, but lets compare. i really wanna see or know if there are people as addicted as me. i know a lot of people run lots of accounts, and that isnt the rub of what im getting at (ya Mrs Small, 21 accounts, your sick!) so i shall start this off. i run 3 accounts. 2 of which i consider to be my main accounts, and the third which is my 'red/rouge' account. and this is what i have done with my allmost 11 years in UO. (please note, im not going to be listing gold or items here because for the simple reason that i want to be able to move my wrists after this post) every character listed below is done, maxed out in all skills, if its a tamer then even all thier pets are trained as well, warriors are in done suits and pack only the best of weapons and artys ect ect ect. my main character. sonoma shard: house - Castle. character is scrolled up to 120 in EVERY SKILL that is scrollable. character has EVERY SKILL on soulstones at his disposal (yes, all skills ... every last one) that is the only character that im gonna list like that, because he is the only one that has been scrolled in every skill and has every skill on soulstones at his disposal. rest of the characters on sonoma. Account #1 120 Mule. T Hunter Tamer Macer. Pure Bard. Faction Tamer (can switch between stealth mage template and dismount archer template with skills stoned) Trap Remover (my latest adventure into different templates) Account #2 Nox Mage Pally Sword Disco Tamer Faction Archer Tamer Nox Fencer (Red) Necro mage spellweaver Lumber Jack Swords warrior (old old school) Account #3 Archer Tamer (Red) Nox Mage (Red) Ninja Dog Archer Begging Thief Wood Mule T Hunter Mage Bushy Macer now sonoma was my home shards, and as such the characters are a little different then what i did on other shards. what i did from here on out was make the same 7 characters on every shard i went too. Account #1 1. Pure Mage (scribe mage) 2. Metal Mule (smith, mine, arms lore, ect ect) 3. Bushy Macer (bushido, mace, tact, heal, anat, chiv, focus) 4.

Dex Monkey Nox Fencer (poison, fence, tact, heal, anat, chiv, focus) 4. Factions Archer Tamer (tame, lore, vet, archery, tact, chiv, med) 5. Necro Mage (just like it sounds) 6.

Paladin or Necro Warrior (rotated back and forth from shard to shard) 7. Red Mage (allways need a red mage) so did all those 21 characters on ATL, Baja, Legends, Great Lakes, Origin, Pacific and Napa and Arirang (dont ask!) and on all other shards i just made a Pure Mage (every.... shard.....in game) and i think i have a couple more tamers on a few more of the east coast shards, but they are only 3/4 way done, so they dont count. oh, and lets not forget Siege. account #1 - Archer Tamer account #2 - Nox Fencer account #3 - Mule most of the characters all have Ethys. most of the characters all have neat stuff like Black Horses. like i said, all the tamers have ALL of their pets fully trained (yes, OCD) all mages are in 2/4 or 2/6 LRC/LMC/MR suits all warriors are in either Darkwood Suits, Virtue Suits or hand made 70 Suits. all toons are scrolled and skilled to at LEAST 110, all tamers and bards are allways maxed at 120. every discord tamer on each shard has a luck suit for farming. and those are my established accounts. (please note, this dosnt list any of my collectables or rares or anything like that, this is purelly a tally of manpower) ive been asked..... why? and there is a simple answer. ive noticed over the years that some shards die off from time to time. seems to flow. so it all started years ago when sonoma had a dry spell. i moved over to ATL for some fun until sonoma got active again. then when sonoma died off again i went to GL. and so on and so on and so on. so now whenever i get bored and want to play, i can log on to any one of my hundreds of guys and know that i can walk out fully trained and suited up and ready to play. wow. after looking at this all writen down i must admit.... i need to get some medication!!!!! in closing i would like to put down a phrase that i have allways said and in fact use to be my sig here on stratics. I dont like to think of UO as an addiction, but rather as a hobby that has me by the balls!
