    Whether or not the new acct creation code for SA still comes with thirty days of "New Player Smell"?

    It was never part of the add copy so I just have no idea how to advise a recruit that appears to be an actual, honest to goodness, New to UO player.

    Any help would be appreciated. I have sent PMs to Cal and Messana already.

    Thank you.

    I started playing in January. I received no token, armor, or alacrity beyond the normal New Haven quests. If by "a bit of gold" they mean the 1000 gold, then yes, I got a bit of gold; but it felt more like a crumb fallen from a poor man's supper table.

    As an aside, I was talking to a local barrista at a coffee shop I frequent. I convinced him to give UO a try this Summer. He is starting his new account sometime later this week. I told him I would give him a 'gear bag' to help give him a leg-up.

    New SA accounts came with a "New Player code" that gave a golden ticket that was char bound that activated the "new player smell", a named armor set, and 20k in gold for a short time. However a few months ago when I tried to purchase another new player code, they were not available anymore according to customer service. So it is no longer available as far as I know, but maybe they will bring it back with upcoming plans for new players. :spider:

    PS at the time they were available you would see the language advertising the "New player code" before final checkout if you bought from EA game store but it did not show on UO gamecodes I believe.

    they just got the upgrade for their three day old trial. So we may never know. Thanks to all for the advice.
