Yesterday I was cleaning up my houses on Sonoma, granted I had not been able to get on shard except for a few minutes of mining or trips to get bods. I was off in my little corner of UO playing happily on my own... I hit on a friends house rune to drop off some things I knew she collected, her house was gone. Not only that the whole area was devoid of houses! This was a major player Town!! I made the rounds of running all over the place to get the big picture of what was up.... I was shocked. I counted over 100 water troths up in the air... a sure sign a house fell.... It was sad to see, I had loved to log in sonoma and visit with friends and work a little on my very old homes. I decided to let it go perhaps like other shards it was a victom of the migration gone ary. I got on my tamer and was in need of a set of the new imbued jewelry so I got in chat and asked for the location of a good jewerly shop... Luna shopping was bad.. almost all vendors were ether gone or empty. What I got in answer was the shocker. A player who I will not name for his/her safety.. answered my inquiry. But it was not what you or I would expect in answer. I was told make a imbuer like the rest of them did and make it my self. ??? was my reply back to this player. "... didnt you want my gold?" the reply I recieved was: " NO, GET THE HELL OFF OUR PVP SHARD. " In the insuing banter I was told by this character they has successfully pushed all "crafters" off the shard and it was now "their pvp shard" and I was not a pvp'r and to get off the shard. Pack up my things and transfer off or they would drive me off. Like they had done to others. Sonoma was one of the most friendlyest shards I knew of. I had met players there that were so nice but this was beyond rude. A helpfull tamer gave me a set, I offered to pay but he refused the gold and said sorry for the jerks. I have had homes on Sonoma sence it opened way back in the early days of UO. I even still have an old Smithy house deed from back then. I'm sad that such a wonderfull shard has gone to ruin.
