For a number of years now, I've been on a quest to train and equip a small group of characters on every shard in the game. It's taking me a long time to do it and I'm nowhere close to being finished. And the amount of gold I've managed to collect during the process is....skimpy at best. (I've successfully resisted the urge in the last five years or so to buy gold from a broker to make the process easier. I try to make my characters each as self-sufficient for their skill set as possible.) However, for the most part it's been a lot of fun and I've met some really super people along the way! So, I thought it might be interesting and maybe inspirational to find out how things are going for all the other crazy people who play UO on multiple shards, even when they don't have homes on all those shards. I know you people are out there because several of my guildmates are just as nuts as I am, and maybe more so, about TOTAL SHARD DOMINATION!!! (Yes, I've probably had too much caffeine this morning already.) I'm pretty sure Tazar is a multi-sharder; Petra has characters on multiple shards; MalagAste does; Pfloyd does; and Lady Storm certainly does. So who else does and wants to talk about it?!? Just to show where things stand for me at the moment, I made a screen shot of one of the summary pages in my massive spreadsheet that I use for keeping track of my main playable characters. This doesn't show all of my finished or developing characters, by any means. However, it does help me see where I stand on each shard in terms of having characters with what I consider the basic skills that help me be semi-self-sufficient on a shard. I can look at this sheet and get an idea of where to focus my training efforts next, where to maybe build a house, etc. I'm curious to know if other people do something similar or how they decide which shard to work on next or do they try to hit every shard every week or something like that. So, here's your chance to talk about UO multi-shard madness and how hard it's taken a bite out of you and whether you think it's been a good thing for you or if you wish you'd never succumbed and just limited yourself to one shard.
