(Question) New player to UO, looking for other life on Catskills

Discussion in 'UO Catskills' started by Luhann, Feb 15, 2012.

    Hello everyone,

    I just joined UO and was looking to see if anyone spends time on Catskills. I am just getting comfortable with my characters. I am just letting my skills develop as I play the game...getting killed by a deer, wolf, and a couple of cows was a bit emberrasing :D

    I am usually on late in the evenings and had a few questions and was looking for some pointers, maybe a few people to take me through some of the ropes, or a guild to join that is friendly to newer players.

    So if anyone has any suggestions or advice, I would be happy to listen.

    Regards
    Luhann

    PS..how do you guys communicate ICQ, etc?

    Welcome to the game. Nothing wrong with getting killed by a wolf or deer, or...well the cows - yeah that would be embarassing.

    I'm definitely not the best mentor as I'm just getting back into the game after a break and feel a bit out of sorts myself. I personally still use ICQ and lots of other players still use this method. I believe there are guilds that will help out new players. Though if you find yourself in need by all means give me a shout on ICQ. My number is 8249606. I'm thinking about seeking out a guild myself soon as there are just too many things that you can't really do solo in this game.

    My first day out in the game I got killed by a mongbat. True story. But I trained hard, got to be a legendary swordsman and went back after that vermin.

    Welcome to Catskills.

    Welcome to the game. Many of us communicate with ICQ, guilds usually use Ventrillo. General Chat can be useful, sometimes.

    Don't worry about that deer. I still can't kill the mongbat that took me out so Flutter did it for me.

  14. Hi There,

    I too, am just coming back after being in other realms for a few years. There's lots of new stuff going on in the game and it can be a little confusing at times.
    Anyway, if there's any of the old peeps around from TB, DWG, or CoV...please contact me...my ICQ is 649755281. I hope there's still a few of you around :)

    Lys....

    Don't feel bad, back when I started I was killed by a pack of rabbits. A pack of the most foul, cruel, bad tempered rodents you ever set eyes on. They had a vicious streak a mile wide, they were killers! They had huge sharp teeth, and they could leap about. It was awful.
