How does one return?

    Hello all I am in a bit of a pickle and feel the need to vent / seek some assistance.

    During the past few weeks prior to returning to UO I had been filled with fond memories of playing it in its prime. The hunts, the skill gaining, the aspirations and most of all the friends I had. I somehow found ways to entertain myself for literally hours and hours at a time, some nights I wouldn't even go to sleep, I'd stay up all night long playing Ultima until my body became so incredibly weary I couldn't stand it anymore, once I even fell asleep on the floor under my desk.

    I miss that level of enjoyment so much. I've returned, I've built a new house, I've started unpacking but the fact is ... nothing UO has to offer sounds fun to me anymore. I've faught every monster, hunted every dungeon, GM'd every skill at least once, some many more times over. How do I return?

    I feel like I need to be born again into this game and I know that some of you have left and successfully returned. Someone help me, somewhere there are words of wisdom that can shed some light on my predicament. How do I enjoy UO again like I used to? I've tried playing other games and always compared them to Ultima to find them coming up short so I come back here again and again only to find myself standing in my house trying to think of something to do.

    I'm so heartbroken ... at this point I feel like just having a shard-yard sale and giving away everything I own so that I am forced to literally start all over with nothing. Is that crazy talk or should I go for it?:coco:

    Try active shards you've never played before - meet new people .. start fresh there instead of throwing away what you've already earned.

    I was born on Pac, moved to Lake Superior, then Great Lakes then came here.

    I did decide to give it away. It's been picked through but there is still stuff there. anyone who'd like to is welcome to drop by and take anything you can pick up. chests are open access if you can open it you can take it. northwest of luna in the mountains, has an ankh that apparently looks like an anchor on the roof in white that you can see on your map. owned by muse dedannan. go knock yourselves out.

    *Shrug* I have always said .....

    When your in a Blue Funk, nothing like a Good Death to Cure whats wrong you.

    Go to Felluca, see if you can find a PKr and then kick dirt around, scream, cuss do it all and get that Edge Back. :)

    Having said the above, is your account able to do the SA Open Client Beta? If so, then go have some fun there while you can, I think it may end sometime this weekend.

    Now if your looking for a challenge OR something that will make you pull your hair out, well heck just go raise a Tamer to Skill 120 from scratch. That will keep you busy for a few years anyway.

    And by then you can switch over to the new Imbuing skill.

    OR you can try to organize a Friday Night Chicken Fights tournament. That will fit right in with the new SA Chicken Lizards/Battle Chickens and your very own Chicken Coop(s) in your very own home to stable your Prize Fighting Chickens.

    But I never answered your question, "How does one return?" hum, well .... uhm, how ever one wants to :)

    Aye, I saved a few items with personal value that I could never ever find again like my guild stone and some treasured gifts. But it felt good to get rid of everything else and start anew. I had so many tokuno dyed braziers I was lining ever level of my house just to get them out of a chest ... that's just sad. Now that it's all gone I'm looking forward to starting a brand new collection of brand new stuff ... though admittedly I did discover that part of the problem is due to feeling guilty every time I log in to UO.

    There is SO MUCH work to be done on this dotcom company in order to keep up with it's freakishly fast growing user base that even after a 13 or 14 hour day I still feel like I should be working instead of playing computer games. I hope the work obsession I have in real life now, as similar as it is to the work obsession I used to have in UO, yields the same results. LOTS AND LOTS OF WEALTH lol.

    SHUT YOUR WHINING GURL!!!!!!!


    If there is one thing that Red Star of LA showed me before her three month break was that there are still too many challenges left in UO that ppl never gear up for. Wanna go do a two man Bedlam? How about learning to solo all the keys for Dread or Trav or Parox or Mel? Give me a few days to get over this back to school crap and I will run your ass into the ground.

    How easily you forget. I used to solo the keys for dread all the time when zeus and I first moved to this shard. Zeus taught me how to do it. We'd two team the keys for the others. In fact lets blame him for my UO slump, why not I like blaming him. If not for him I'd have never done most of the things I've done like almost every champ with just two people, solo'd keys, tag teamed dread too many times to count, ran the spawn in ilsh so much my archer became despicable, gm'd spellweavers, ninjas and samurai's ... if not for how unhappy I was with Zeus I would not have started having an out of game affair with Muse's in game husband and followed him to this shard. Zeus is the reason I camped IDOC's got involved in the BTH vs. BC rivalry on GL and even bothered to poke my head into certain places in tokuno. Not because I was scared to do any of those things but because they didn't really sound fun to me but he wanted to do them so I did them with him.

    I think I'm gonna try to finish the recipe collection on my mule LOL
    Get your ass in game so I can give you this crap I've been saving for you.
