    Must've been like 4 or 5 years now... So what the heck, I thought.
    I used to own a runebook shop on Skara crossroads, small marble thingy with tons of runebooks (like those "Hard To reach Places in Brit" or "Gate Your Enemy There" - that one was selling for 100k or so) My primary char was, well, Kefir.
    And one day I gave up after my lovely in-game wife mysteriously dissapeared, never to be heard of again. Time is the best doctor they so I'll give it a go now. My houses turned into dust, with all the wealth inside, thers are still couple of mils in the bank from the old runebook glory days so why noit start over...
    I placed a house again and, yes, what bothers me is that I was actually able to place one quite easily... It seems half of the housing on Tram side of Europe is gone with the wind, people are truly hard to come by, no folks at the banks, usual hunting places, once overcrowded, are now empty, no miners in the caves, etc, and it all smells hm...like sort of a dead world. There had been more guests at my wedding ceremony in Trinsic years ago that the people I met during last 3 days and that's includin major cities of Brit.
    And is that UO Auction site gone for good, too?
    Folks, is it THAT bad, really? Or it's just a bad dream I have?

    Actually, no, it's not that bad. You can see it when there's an event and people come together. With the way they changed the terrain a few years back plus additional house space on Malas, Tokuno and now Stygian Abyss we're just much more spread out than when there was only Tram and Fel.
    Right now most folk are exploring the Abyss, because it's all shiney new and mysterious.

    I returned about a month ago and joined a friendly guild called Saor. During evenings there is never less than 5 players online in guild and sometimes there is up to 15 players online. So Guildchat can get busy :)

    As for housing.. yes it is easy to place large plots in trammel, but as mentioned there is much more space to place on.

    I havnt seen an empty room that would hold a keep or castle... not even in Feluca.. and I do a fair bit of scouting looking for idocs.

    So the day there are empty spots for keeps and castles I think the population is low... untill then you just need to find the right places where people are hiding :)

    Welcome back!!

    Hehe I ran into some Saor last night, got my butt handed to me while being in despice. As the time goes I slowly relearn my macros and also learn what macros I dont have yet... so its been a few embarrasing deaths. BUT I have to say its fun to be back. Granted there are less players around now compared with 2001 or 2002 and the inflation has skyrocketed. So all I can say is that give it some time and hopefully you will enjoy it too :)

    Lol, ah, yes, that would be our fel champ contingent.

    You know what to do if you can't beat em... :D


    You're all going to think I'm very silly now, but reading posts like that and the one before it from our Zayin makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :)

    Warm and fuzzy is well deserved for the time and effort you've put into Saor.

    Europa hero imo.
