I've played in Fel since...well, forever. The only home I have ever owned outside of Fel was on Siege, in Makato, which is still...Fel. UO has always been a game of abundant choices: travel by steed, boat, foot. Different housing, no cookie cutter templates, always variation. No set perfect way, always variation. It has also, always been about survival. From the thug thief, to parry macer, to sampire, to ninja dexers of today. Fel is a part of UO, and it should be a part of UO. If you can't find a way to evade the PKs for long enough to click a book something is wrong. I am not really ranting, just saying maybe the DEV's felt like adding the PKers to the fun.
