    So I reactivated one of my accounts I had closed. I played mainly on LA where I haplessly gave all of my stuff away, but I had some gold, an ethy and a few other trinkets here. I logged in yesterday to the reminder that my only character here still sucks, but I'm going to give it the old College Try and see if I can build some skills. I hate to say it but hide/stealth are 2 of my starters. A newbs gotta survive somehow right ? Anyway if you hear someone chopping trees or banging away with a shovel, it's nobody important.

    If you out in the wilderness to do your shopping or digging, Dark Wisps may kill you alot more than PK's

    It's exciting to be back here, I"m not even going to bother with a Prod shard. I had to ask my wife for permission to return to UO. She's buried in Facebook every night so she doesn't care as much any more....

    Welcome back! Always good to see more people coming back and yes, Dark Wisps are feared by all! haha! I have ran into a few PKs lately, but been quick enough to get away before they could react. Once again, welcome back and good to have you!

    I seem to remember you. Welcome back. Welcome to Siege. No reason to restart anywhere else. On Siege you can start with nothing and make a mark on this land in short time.

    Thanks for the welcome so far. Im wondering what i'm doing wrong with regards to Stealth ? My hiding is at 80, and Stealth is at 61.1, however over the past 30 minutes my last 3 gains have been hiding only...80.3...I'm guessing that what I'm wearing will need to be adjusted for gains ?

    Add a piece of armor that might induce a fail. Anything non medable. Once you hit 75 the rest is just gravy.

    Hi, Garth and welcome back to UO. I hope your family is doing well!

    I have some vet rewards (crystal and corrupted crystal portal, commodity deed box) and some add-ons from one of my houses that I dropped that I'd like to give you, if you want them. Also, a fire beetle and a blue beetle, if you can use those.

    good to see another join our world. welcome to siege .for me , its the only shard i'll play. siege is definitely a challenge but dont give up . its worth it .
    there ARE people around . were usually out doing things tho . you wont find us hanging around banks .
    however , im sure if you ask on general chat someone will usually respond . if not it may mean we are in the middle of something and dont want to be found . try again in a little while . also , the main leader of NEW is having issues with an ill father so right now might be hard to find them . again dont give up . eventually one of the emissaries will be on .

    if you need some basic goods im always willing to help a newb . ask for unclesham or borg in game or pm me here . i can craft pretymuch anything.

    remember , dont carry what you cant afford to lose . death is pretymuch inevitable . dont stress over it . its part of the deal.
    try to keep at least one backup suit ready in the bank . consider it pre-paid insurance.

    also dont be ashamed to speak up . im sure if you are down to your last suit and need help someone will help . weve all been there.

    Garth, your note about your family made my day! You're "good folks" and I know you'll do Siege proud.
