    Antagonist/Evil Side
    As mentioned before, there will be an antagonist/evil side to support if you don't want to be part of the Guard. However I want to hear your ideas of what we could make this, and how to do it. We have a few ideas already, but we'd love to hear yours as well. So please do let us know if you have suggestions or ideas for an antagonist side. The requirements are that it'd obviously have to be regulated and that it not use anything already used. I.E. it cannot be a reformation of the Chaos guard of Blackthorne or something else. They don't necessarily need to be axe murdering kidnapping axe murdering baby stealing genocidal monsters but, you know, they gotta be bad guys. So if you have a good idea, please send it in as thorough detail as you can.

    Merit/Demerit System
    Anything earned as part of the guard will not say 'Royal Guard Commander's Cloak' It would say 'Commander Character name Royal Guard Cloak' Any rewards from the merit/demerit system will be both standardized and personalized And continuing with that. We have methods in place so that if you try to sell your royal guard merit items Actions will be taken. Some people will sell anything from the EM program because any item will get millions. And that's fine for event items. There's not a wrong way to play UO, unless you are breaking the ToS. The merit/demerit system is SPECIFICALLY designed to give you things to wear to show your dedication to the group you are part of. And that is why it has a difference in our view of items.

    Thank you Merik!

    "We have methods in place so that if you try to sell your royal guard merit items Actions will be taken."

    What if someone uses an insurance bug on me and poof my item becomes uninsured and they loot it. Am I now punished because someone used a bug on me?

    Guildmate or alliance member steals the item from me because it was not insured or something...Am I now punished?

    Someone hacks my account or a friend cleans it off and then goes and sells the item, am I now punished for that?

    What if I sell my account and the new owner now has the item and has no idea about this "item agreement" and they sell it and then what happens?

    Going along that same line can I use the "Account Access Transfer program" with this EM item on the account?

    How do I prove to you that ANY of the things above actually happened? Do you take my word for it? Is their some sort of process in place for this type of situation?

    If Sally To Little quits Ultima Online and give me her items, can I sell it? Do I get action taken against me for selling a item Sally To Little gave to me?

    If someone drops their item on the ground by accident or on purpose can I sell it? Do I get action taken against me for selling a item someone else dropped on the ground?

    What if a solar flare strikes the earth and my computer fries but the UO servers are still running and my credit card company doesn't accept the charge and poof my house falls with the item in it and then two years later I come back, will I be punished?

    What if a meteor strikes the Atlantic ocean and a tidal wave...... :next:

    I want to know more about the EXACT policy I will be agreeing to before I just join the Royal Guard. I would like to see it written out and not just all of a sudden posted when something happens which makes it look like you just made it up on the fly. I just laugh watching people blindly agree to joining such a thing and they don't even know what they are agreeing to.

    So like here is an example. So like if we sell it are you going to delete the item? Because if you do the only person your messing over is the buyer, I already have their gold and then the buyer...who is probably a rare collector is going to come after you and so is the entire rare collectors community....and then you will just be in deep poo poo...

    Now I will quote this again
    "if you try to sell your royal guard merit items Actions will be taken."

    See you are leaving this "Action will be taken" thing to my imagination and when you let my imagination decide what you mean by action will be taken then it goes to a very big worse case scenario and "what if" game. Now I have thousands of little men that run around in all different directions in my head so I will let you imagine what else I am thinking LoL
