It is nice to see the Atlantic shard so healthy and populated. However lets make King Blackthorn decree " The Homesteader Act! " In an effort to repopulate the shards, mainly because players leave their shard to shop Atlantic which has been designated as the unofficial trading hub shard for all of Ultima Online, and sometimes never return home. Also you know how depressing it is for a returning veteran to come back to the game after playing years on a non-Atlantic shard to come back and see their original home shard vacant? This is why I advocate for repopulating the shards. Here were my CRAZY thoughts. Potential coding nightmare. 1 - FREE daily vendor upkeep. No Charge! What a bargain! Never pay to sell your items on any shard except Atlantic. (My personal favorite idea) 2 - FREE one time transfer per each character to any shard OFF Atlantic. No free transfers back to Atlantic. 3 - Allow one additional house per account, perhaps in felucca only on every shard except Atlantic. 4 - An eighth character slot available on all shards except Atlantic. 5 - Faster respawn timer on all bosses, resources, and higher quantities of return on every shard except Atlantic. Thank you for sharing your creative and positive criticism and/or explaining why it will never happen, work, or shouldn't be done.
