    I can't find anyone. I've wandered around the world working some skills for five days and have seen exactly one body. A red coming out Yew gate and he didn't even PK me...

    Where is everyone?

    I've been here just over a month and tend to hunt from sheep up to dragons for crafting supplies. You can use either ICQ or AIM to see if I'm walking the land when your playing.

    Welcome to Siege. :)

    I tried general chat and nothing, but I'll stick with it. The other shards are losing their appeal to me and I'm hoping Siege is the answer.

    Hi Santos,

    Welcome to Siege, it's an interesting place to be. Definitely keep general chat on, because it quite entertaining and the best way to meet people and find whatever you seek.

    Hellos Santos!

    Welcome to Siege Perilous! I hope you enjoy this little piece of heaven as much as I do...

    We are always around... Most of us, I am guessing 90%, use General Chat to communicate in the world we play in. If you would like some help getting started on Siege Perilous, ask for a NEW2 Leader in General Chat. You can even pop on over to the link below for some information about NEW2...

    http://stratics.com/community/threads/welcome-to-newborn-on-siege-2-new2.276129/

    Again... Welcome to your new home! Just a heads up though, no one bank sits here... Well... Unless you are some of those super cools people that bank sit at Serpent's Hold Bank... :p

    :mylittlepony: Thanks!

    That's what brought me here, even as anti-PKer as I am. So far I'm loving it here. :) I think this is what Richard Garriott had in mind when he created UO back in the late '90s. I've hardly touched Chessie in the last month other than to maintain my vendors there. I've likely over a hundred hours on Siege in that month. :)

    You'll find crafters out foraging trying to stay clear of the PKers or in their shops crafting to stock their vendors. The PKer's you don't usually see until they want you to. :eek:

    General chat is handy for finding people but remember there may be PKers listening as well. Telling them where you are can be unhealthy.

    I don't know but I did stumble over something that felt invisible, so it might have been that.

    Waiting for you to gain skills so you don't cry saying we PKed a newbie and then have you whine and moan. An eventually you will have quit Siege as General chat will just tell you, "Welcome To Siege and you can be killed everywhere and anywhere regardless of new or old". Then you go spout on the forums how we are not a friendly community and no one offered you help and all we do is chase people off from the server by PKIN newbies and then you get flamed some more.

    Its a long process, the outcome is normally the same though. I would say Welcome to Siege, but you probably already quit. IF not, you'll quit soon. Thanks for playing I guess?

    Oh yah. I also forgot the part where Kelmo jumps into General Chat and tries to control how everyone plays UO and slanders me for have killed you. Then goes on for 2 weeks of how horrible people we are and we do not help the community, as he tries and moderates general chat believing he actually has some control over what people say. Then the whole discussion of how bad PKs are and we are all scammers and not to be trusted, when in reality the people who say that are just sour they can't fight. Its just such a headache these days.

    I dont know about chasin people off the shard, but a few of us had a nice little fight yesterday with AAAR and it was quite fun. I know we got 2 of them and i think they may have got 3 of us but they fun factor was definitely a plus :) and the best part was i dont remember hearing any complaining from either side. Just go out, fight, either live or die. 'Tis the nature of Siege :)

    Some players thrive on that scene, same as you do. Others like me don't care for it. Stick mainly to killing those who enjoy PvP and let those of us who thrive on the foraging & crafting scene forage & craft, and perhaps Siege's population will grow as more of us who have grown tired of production shards try life here before deciding to leave UO entirely.

    Perhaps the majority of citizens of Siege that I know (and I have been here over 4 years now) are of the same mind as yourself. Branwyn cannot fight her way out of a paper bag and the only things her dragon eagerly attacks are tasty treats and guildmate Sara Dale. Most reds have better things to do with their time than hunt all over for crafters gathering resources (unless they are scripting which is not well tolerated here by anyone) so if you stick to remote areas and don't advertize your whereabouts you'll be okay. Be wary though, especially in popular hunting areas and towns as there is danger lurking. It is part of the fun here.

    Along time ago about a year after t2a was released I found myself completely lost somewhere between Papua and delucia. Just as I thought to myself where the f..k am I, a red pops out and pk's me. I was like really? Here? How? From that time on, I knew NOWHERE is safe LOL.

    I think that last part is what alot of people are not understanding that are coming from production shards in 2012 when SP has been in UO since 1999.

    I guess I don't understand what the big ruckus is about getting killed. I expect to be pk'd and looted. That's why I'm here, the fear/excitement.

    The shard where you can be minding your own business buying random fishing goodies from a Yew vendor shop and the next minute you're being jumped by two murderers, somehow you manage to crawl your way to the moongate and escape with your life and your seashells! Hehe (true story, happened a coupla weeks back and Mollie says *two fingers to you two as well* :p).

    Never had my heart thumping buying random crap on Atlantic heh.
