    I added them to the book but can't get them out. There's no button next to them.

    The BOD Book must be in your pack then an arrow for dropping will appear next to them.

    How about bod books on vendors where you can't buy any of the bods. Can you put bod books up on vendors and not set prices for them so they can't be sold?

    Yep;

    Unpriced BODs in books on vendors is an officially accepted means of storage, although the original intent was that it would allow persons to show off what BODs they had for trade to others.

    As usual, what the devs thought would be 1% of the use ended up as 99%, and vice versa (the first time was with Lord British himself (as a consultant on UO design), and thinking that PvP would be 99% role-play, and 1% cold-blooded killers).

    Lord Brittish had a somewhat skewed, very idealistic view of what the game would become. He just overestimated the people that would be attracted to it.

    Instead of attracting die hard role playing fans that believed in honor and integrity, UO attracted pkers that would easily destroy other's game play in a system that offered very little pentalty.

    Its not unlike the real world where most people weigh risk versus reward and if the risk is less then the reward then the person will gladly accept the risk. In a system with little or no risk the risk is going to be taken by a greater number of people.

    I disagree.

    The problem was boredom. There was so much to do, but once you'd done it all you were left a little bored. Often, turning PK was the last phase in a players evolution shortly before quitting the game....the last uncharted territory to explore. Turned out, some people ended up liking it so much they kept doing it.

    EQ, WoW....these games keep moving back the finish line so there's always something to focus on besides your state in the game. Had UO had as much as it does now back then, that evolution would have taken much longer.
