    It's UO's annual Walk Everywhere Day. Some big wig (no doubt in a wig) decreed that we were all too lazy and closed the moongates.

    That or the people behind Terminal 5 in Heathrow have just moved into moongate travel...

    you do realize that brand new or returning players have not choice but to use the moongates until they can get someone to mark or buy a runebook for them?

    try to remember when your character was new.

    nope,

    have not log in today to check, errands to run and all that.

    yes, I realize what day it is. Just remember that not all cultures/soceities that play UO recognize april fools day. Or actually most of the holidays we get gifts for.

    Its one of my pet peeves with UO, it had its own lore/hoildays and calender, yet we get "gifts" based on the real life calender.

    call me a wet blanket if you wish, this was in poor taste. Because if they were down it would have a negative impact on new/returning players.

    Oh, please... leave us one place (UO) where we don't have to be totally politically correct all the time. [​IMG]

  16. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about it. I just feel there's nothing wrong with traditional holiday gifts - of any tradition.

    Oh I agree with you, Gwyneth. I meant I think the moongate joke is stupid. Personally I was hoping for something for Easter. Not necessarily gifts, but a maniacal blackrock infected giant bunny or something. [​IMG]

    I am not being politically correct,

    I am far from that. all I am saying if you would have quoted the rest of my statement.

    is that is one of my pet peeves, is that UO which has its own lore/holidays and calender. We continue to get "gifts" based on days/dates from our real life calender. I thought I was playing a game to relax/entertain/distract or whatever term you wish to use from real life, a place where reality does not intrude. A fantasy world, with its own unique style, settings, lore. You know the rpg in mmorpg (massively multiplayer online role playing game)?

    but its not going to stop me from enjoying UO, lack of immersiveness or not. It just rubs my role-playing side of me the wrong way.

    Understood. It's a fantasy world. Sometimes it's harder to maintain the fantasy when reminders of real life pop in. [​IMG]
