I decided to do the 14 day trial and give UO a try after being away. I was in the end of the beta test, and then played in public release on Catskills till... jeez, I want to say 2003? I think Blackthorns Revenge was the expansion I left on. Anyway, I didnt even try to get my old account, but in seeing that people have, maybe I'll give it a try when I get home later? I wouldnt even have guessed it might still be sitting there after all these years?!?! Things on the shard seem slow, and in reading a few posts I can see that a lot has changed. When I left, bank sitting in Britain was the thing to do and the place to be, but it sounds like people are in Luna now? Also, do the old add ons still get used? I tried to get UO Map to work, and couldnt get it to sync. Other than that I think I used UO Assist, but I havent had a chance to check that out yet. Am I very out of touch with add ons? It feels good to be back, though Im having to relearn how to do EVERYTHING! I forgot how I enjoyed skill based gains as opposed to just levelling a character and I really missed shopping at player owned vendors. Its really a couple of aspects of UO that made it so unique. Ive switched my main for my alt, but in those days I had Hakai Suru as my main and Moreeg as my armorer alt, but over the years the Moreeg name has become my main, so for the trial Ive used Moreeg for my first character. If anyone remembers me (I actually cant remember the name of the guild I was in???), drop a line! It seems like the overall server population is way down, but I hope that doesnt mean UO's life is limited... I was really hoping to settle back in here again.
