    Is it possible to transfer a character or two from X server to this server?

    How exactly is Siege Perilous??

    We wanna play again, just wondering if we can bring our 120 guys over. Thank you!

    Also, does this server have a lot of pvp ?

    Welcome back

    Transfer is not possible but if you are a few friends, it won't be hard to start over here and I'm sure you will have fun with it too.

    Sure you may take some dirtnaps at the start, alot here will love some fresh meat but the payback day will come, when you get your skills up.

    To make money here and get needed items, the way will be resource gathering and trading/selling it for the items you need until your crafters get their skills up.

    NPC vendors on Siege do not buy from players and do not sell clothes, ingots or boards, but players will buy/sell this resources.

    Being a newbie again can be fun, give it a try.

    Freja is right. Restarting is a lot of fun, but siege is pretty easy to get going. You won't have trouble finding spawns to do, for example, and with that many, you may even be able to fight off the inevitable raids. Oh the fun! Also, if you ally with an established guild and do spawns together, you can take advantage of some of their pvp expertise - most of the pvp'ers are always looking for a fight, and raiding/defending a spawn is the best kind.

    ROT is a big difference, you won't be able to macro up skills as quickly as on other shards. Some skills, like taming and discord and crafting skills, are far easier with ROT, others - like weapons skills - are harder.

    You'll definitely get pk'd, but that's no problem if you aren't wearing uber gear. Just train up in GM gear - which is cheap, and there's plenty of players here who'd be happy to help supply you - so if you take a dirtnap, you lose little. Also, never carry anything you want to lose - thieves abound - and don't go afk at the bank. You are warned - keke!

    When restarting, funny critters you'd never look at twice on a prodo shard become dangerous. I remember being killed by a greater hind and a lizardman! The risk and danger and challenge of mid-range creatures is back.

    I think imbuing has greatly balanced the landscape. Uber gear is only slightly better than good imbued gear - which is cheap. Because of this, crafters with imbuing are in very high demand right now.

    I hope you all decide to come over. There'll be plenty of people willing to help - most of whom lurk here daily. NEW is a particularly helpful guild for those starting out on the shard, Shalimar (the GM) gathers and gives out lower powerscrolls, lrc suits for training, gm gear, spellbooks/runebooks, etc. All of which is trivial on your home shards, but still very helpful for a newbie.

    Welcome!

    I don't think the OP meant they have 120 individuals playing, I think they wanted to know if they could bring their *legendary* characters over.

    And no, you can't :)

    That would be my interpretation as well. I suppose it is possible that a massive group could have stopped playing, remained in contact with each other, and then all want to scope out a new UO server together a long time later...but I think it is more likely a couple of friends with maxed chars on another server want to pick up the game again and try something new. ;)

    You guess you are right.

    Wouldn't it be funny if NEW was the largest guild for a while? LOL

  8. Heh, we almost were at one time when Waka came to Siege. About 29 of them joined NEW one after the other (almost queuing up in the house waiting to get guilded) so they brought the total to 93 that month and all were active. I had no help at the time so that was a bit hairy trying to get the spellbooks filled and lcr suits and whatnot, there were some late nights for me back then, but we got there.

    The more the merrier.
