Hello! I'm recently decided to return to UO after a very long absence (7 or 8 years), and I'm trying to find a shard to call my own! I apologize if these questions have been answered recently; I know some have been, but I couldn't quite gauge how they'd pertain to me personally. So, the questions! 1.) From what I can gather, there is space for housing available here? Is it a barren wasteland with tons of open space, or just a nice amount of spots here and there? I fancy owning a house some day, the bigger the better! 2.) Roleplaying: I've seen it mentioned a lot around the other forums I've perused here, so does the shard have an active roleplaying scene? All guild based and cliquish, or out in the open? 3.) Is there a healthy population here? I've seen some say this was the second most populated server (after Atlantic), but that thread was from some time ago. 4.) Can a complete newbie make a livin' here? I don't expect to become super rich, but I really enjoyed selling via house vendors. Do people even buy lower tier things like recall scrolls, reagents and low-tier metals anymore? I guess that's more of a general UO kinda question. I'm mostly a lone wolf kinda guy. I really enjoy being a part of a community, role playing a bit (more out in the open rather than lets-gather-and-RP) and smiting ugly monsters! Will Great Lakes be lovely for that? Thanks!
