Last time I played UO on the EA servers was for a month in 2005 and before than it was in 2000. I've played on free shards, mostly T2A/AOS emulated ones and most of the shards die or get boring. In 2005 when I played on a 'normal' shard, I got bored at the lack of risk. People running around in ridiculous gear selling everything at more ridiculous prices because everyone had money and no one had fear of losing anything. So then SP came to mind. I've been reading the forums, so I know to contact NEW, which I will be doing... Any other advice for a returning player starting fresh on SP? Currently working a necro/mage template that I modified from a template thread.
