Obvious but Helpfull advice if u need to take a break from UO..... Or is it?? because we still find the odd house falling stuffed with goodies that could have been saved by the account owner.. Quite simply make sure u store and keep your best items and gold checks in your 5 or 6 characters bank boxes... thats 125 items per box...so deed all com.stuff up, etc and just keep the best stuff that u can fit into this space. Because for whatever reason you are leaving...one day u may return...be it in 2 years time?? and one things for certain, houses fall after 90 days of deactivation of an account...things left in the house will fall to the ground to be looted - thats UO. So the simple solution and obvoius solution...BANK IT AND SAVE IT [end].
