UO has now its 6th birthday and I wondered how it was in the beginning. I started uo in october 2000 and have only heard stories how it was in the past. Would anbody perhaps like to tell how it was in the first years? I heard there were the days of the "Dread Lords", what exactly does this mean? I heard stories that the reputation system was not like it is now, and there were no lockdowns? Does this mean nothing decayed and this led to the "cleanup Britannia"? I heard only little stories, perhaps would somebody like to tell of past times.
