    Okay, I love the second one.
    This address many of my concerns about newcomers.

    Edit: Actually, that makes me feel like waiting to make my new account. I am rather thorn now.

    So, Instead of new people learning how to play the game, they get a token to make a character that they do not know how to use because they were not shown through normal game-play? It seems the devs have been over-thinking things of late.

    Char token seems a bit much. You can buy most skills up to 40, I think thats a good enough head start. People that get everything handed to them dont appreciate what they have.

    Wonder if this new pack is going to replace the current New Player Starter Kit.


    Also is this 'A very special Suit of Armor' a replacement for the current armor of initiation?

    No Krinkle... just the opposite.
    You see many leave after a short time due to the fact so many of us run around fully decked and power loaded they feel that perhaps UO is not the right game for a beginner... we know different but the new player might hang around if they could come up to snuff and at the very least have a sporting chance.... and 3 years for a ethy is a bit much these days... I can understand a new player or returning one who just saw how well they are and wants one... but dont have the time invested as we "older" vets do.
    Its not like they will have full running knowlage of it all but.... if they do it right... they can join in and feel at home more readily.
    I like the pack.. looks well thought out and I have to agree would be a nice pickup for off shard play for many of us older players too.

    There are two types of new people. Those who want to actually play the game and those looking for a quick 'fix'. It does not matter what you give those looking for the quick 'fix', they will not be in the game for long. Those who wish to really play the game will spend their time in the game with what they have and learn from using things they see. Read Poo's post about his experience watching new people. They don't know the difference between a 'good' suit versus bad. They simply try to play and don't worry about acquiring things to keep up with the Jones'. Too much is made about the 'haves-and-have-nots'. Give them an in game guide for the basics and other players will be their guide after.

    Other games aren't very good but they can get people to play them. Have you even wondered why? It isn't the awe-inspiring graphics or the cool gadgets their characters can get. It is the social experiences. You don't need an MMO for the graphics or items. You can get them from an offline game. For too long UO has concentrated on expanding the game and making things easy for people to play when they do not pay any attention to the social aspect of the game. How about better guild tools. As it stands why even be in a guild? You get very little from being in one. How about a reason to PVP other than simply supplying lambs to the slaughter. Factions never gave a reason to PVP other than a general point of contention. I think its about time to look to other games for ideas because the days of UO being the leader is far in the past. I'm not suggesting a UO theme-park. I just think that the Devs are in 'pleasing everyone mode' and then lose sight of things and end up doing the opposite of what they have intended.

    I say huzzah for the Newbie Care Package. I hang in Haven Atlantic and see newbies all the time and it's just ridiculous. They ask how they get to a dungeon and you just feel embarassed for the game as you go out and buy them runebooks and crap.

    Your right im so jealous I dont have a account bound char token to use with all my maxed out chars. I have good memories and a better understanding of the skills because I worked them up... I dont even know why I had to tell you that, you obviously already know everything.

    I was looking at the "A very special War Hammer" and thinking about the changes to stamina reduction they're messing around with. More joking around than anything since you know, maces used to destroy items and stamina like nobody's business. But now they're adding double strike to the Maul, so who knows. Times they are a changin'.

    ROFL yea sure, you worked them up as in you sat in your house hitting a golem or macroed flamestrike on your spellbook right?

    I'm sure you gained a great understanding of your skill while afking everything to 120. Your argument is completely invalid because no one in this game but masochists or people with lots of spare time would even consider leveling skills up by "playing the game".

    You're probably going to claim that you did everything by hand now lol. Go on say it, I'm sure everyone will totally believe you har har.

    With the exception of fencing, all my skills were trained up while doing sawn. Fencing I did in my home with a golem, but I figured doing swords the long way gave me a pass for the shortcut.

    Thank you for joining Ultima Online! The following items have been delivered to your backpack:

    + 1. A Mythic Character Token = with the 14 day trial,this is great to get a friend in the game, try it and able to show everything with them, so then they can decide if they can stay or actualy enjoy the game rather working on skills. Some negitives is, people problay make just trial accounts for these tokens rather than buying off the store.

    - 2. A Charger of the Fallen = Charger you can get off the store and is many players are happy to have one. There is tamers that will get any player a horse if they just ask. I would just give the player a pet bonding potion or the pet bonds to the player when he rides one.

    + 3. A loaded Runebook = not sure on the runes you will put in one book but good idea to help them.

    / 4. A very special War Hammer = worthless if they want to do fencing,swords, or mage but still cool.

    + 5. A very special Suit of Armor = still depends on class

    + 6. A bank check for 10,000gp = nice starting money

    + 7. A deed for a large Dragon Ship. = not bad either

    + 8. A full Magery Spell Book. = still needs a newbiefied reagent bag. a bag that only holds regs and monsters can't loot off. but players can if they in fel


    You should have to pay for the account to get any of this aswell. not trial period

    I give high marks with the exception of the gold amount, imo it needs to get bumped up to 250,000 gp.

    I have a feeling that you will only get those after subbing and that the mythical token will be account bound. That would be just right.
    I also agree that the starting money needs to be upped.

    Why on earth did you allow us to make Player Towns and not include them in this? Why are the rest of the towns excluded?

    A Player Town could elect its own leader and be allowed to sit at the table or input could be taken on how to involve the player towns in this. Details could be worked out to involve the Player Towns don't you think?

    hmmm....i read the spoiler as the various cities electing their own leaders...nothing more. Since player towns are not part of any other city, they elect their own leaders as they want to...monarch, mayor, council whatever. As I read it, why would Trinsic want anyone from, say, silvervale, sitting at their table making decisions on how their city is run? If you want to be elected in a city, nothing is stopping you though, just work up the loyalty.

    There is a YouTube video of the 15th Anniversary Meeting where Mesanna outlines loosely what will happen with these elected leaders.

    The table I am refering to is underneath the main throne room in Blackthorn's Castle. Each elected leader will sit at this table and have an audience with King Blackthorn and present the ideas their town has to either change the game or request an item for their town.

    I'm just wondering why the Player Towns have been left out of this Council? I don't necessarily want to run myself.

    Our Player Town is in Zento so I really wouldn't want to run in Trinsic were I so inclined.

    The details are not all out yet so perhaps the Player Towns and other towns have really not been left out.

    We shall see.

    Options:
    * Other NPC advisors such as Dupre
    * NPC emissaries from Tokuno Emperor, Nujel'm Sultanate and and Gargoyle queen
    * Representatives from other cities such as Cove, Haven, Serpent's Hold, either player or NPC

    I strongly suspect they have some seats for more NPCs, otherwise it's all players vs. King Blackthorn on his own, extra NPCs can give nice arguments from their own perspective.

    I dont understand how one person can be right so much... its like you been watching me. You did miss the part of how it took me forever to 120 taming and disco off daily gains and working on provo and imbuing now. I dont need everything right now like some people, I play this game for fun not to keep up with the jones.

    I assume its just the first of 6 chars that get this help? Then there are still 5 left to train from scratch. You just have a chance to earn some gold with the first char before you go for it. Talking about gold, 10k is exellent. Doesnt spoil you , but you can afford some tithing and insurance.
    Charger, runebook, spellbook and ship. Exellent!
    Armour hopefully high resist and some dex for the warrior , resist and LRC for mage.
    Char token.. never used one.. not bad.. some returning players should have good use for it. A totally new player... if they get this when they actually pay and not for trial they might know enough to pick the right skills.
    I wont cheer this time before I see it, I did when I heard about the Haven Mine. It turned out to be a Despise dungeon replacement for ogre lords, not for new players. Still silghtly hopeful..;)

    Love Ya all dearly but......
    If I had a penny for every "newie" young player I have helped over the 15 years in the game I'd be driving a 2013 new car! I have done alot to keep young in the game and bring them as close to snuff as is humanly possible for UO standards. Yes there are some who are more needie and act helpless.. thats in all games and its thankfully few and far between in most cases. We have aged beyond the simple times my friends and many from this point in time are looking for a more advanced "in point" . This means perhaps the Dev's gift pack is well suited to bring the new to a fighting chance against the adventures UO has changed into. This is not Our UO anymore... We have changed... hey in 15 years havent you changed?
    To survive you say we must change.... and change we are doing... This is but one small bit of that change. Its needed.

    Take it from one who when UO started could out walk my kids and do things that now..... well as UO has evolved so have I ... Learn to enjoy the times.

    Sorry to dig up a three page old dead thread. However I found something interesting about the items listed below from R Traveler.

    After reading the thread http://stratics.com/community/threads/where-are-these-new-items-from.284368/page-2 that was brought back to life from Magrimur I got to thinking, lets go check out the UO Japan website.

    You will find that these items listed above are yet another Japanese item as shown on this UO Japan webpage. Funny again how no dev stepped into tell us about this item, same as they refused to talk about the items in the thread i just mentioned above.

    Few more interesting things about Japan:
    • You can buy gametime codes from the Amazon Japan Wesbite.
    • You can purchase game time from kiosks around Japan from Fami Port.
    • We are still not allowed to see the Japan UO Store. (I will get through somehow)!
    • That up until two years ago, Japan had a refer-a-friend program, and they claim it will be up again in the future.
    • Japan has books dedicated to playing UO such as encyclopeadias, guides etc, that are advertised right on the UO Japan website!
    These are just a few things. How come we do not get the same treatment as players halfway around the world? Hell, even their UO website has a clear warning NOT TO DO EXODUS AT THIS TIME. Us? No! How many places can we buy game time codes from? Well, officially, one.

    Now I could really give two [insert word here] about a crystal ball of drunken men or what not, or a lockable secret chest. But I am sure I speak with the majority that we deserve the same amount of love as paying customers.

    A question/concern about how representatives will be elected for each town. My crafter is a Marquis of Minoc,but not many at all on LS know me by my crafter,and I play very late and up to server down. Will my purchased title and venerated standing be for naught because someone that may be merely a "respected citizen" knows more people or perhaps have more alternate accounts that will allow them to vote for themselves,where I can not?

    I'd assume its not really available on the US Amazon since the listing still shows Windows 98 as the operating system and you have to do a pretty specialized search to get that to pop up. Searching for "Ultima Online" does not bring it up in the search results. Also, there are no Game Time Cards for UO. Only Game Time Codes.

    Sadly there is not much we can do abotu the multi accounts (except bar trial accounts from voting). However, it should be that ONLY Venerated people that have purchased the Duke/Duchess Title can be nominated.

    Also bring back the old message boards we used to have at inn or put one at each voting area for nominees to leave sort of a pitch to the public.

    These never happened, look at the date.
    • Date first available at Amazon.com: December 18, 2008

    Product Features

    • Works with any game from the Ultima Online series
    • requires Ultima Online game CD and Internet connection
    When was the last time we had a CD and are there other UOs out there? I know there are many Ultimas but would anyone care to show where there is another UO? LOL

    It is amazing how well UO Japan is treated, but you must remember it is run by UO Japan who believes in CS first. IMHO if you looked at the subs I think you might find out Japan supports UO more than the USA. Anybody know how big thier DEV team is, ours is I think maybe 10 people total now including the producer. Don't have a full list of the 2012 Pointsetas.

    Now we just need Siege to show up on the shard list for young players and let them join Siege without it effect their young status on other shards
    1. A Mythic Character Token - Sure nice if you are going to play Siege as it work there now
    2. A Charger of the Fallen - Also nice, as it do not need to get a rez when you die
    3. A loaded Runebook - I guess it will have most town runes, may not help much on Siege as we have no recall unless a mage
    4. A very special War Hammer - Have not seen it, would like to know the mods and if it is blessed on Siege
    5. A very special Suit of Armor - I have seen this, golden leader suit, may be around 5 x 50 in resist, no other mods but it is blessed on Siege. It can't be imbued, so that's ok
    6. A bank check for 10,000gp - Also nice, much better than the 1000gp a new char get
    7. A deed for a large Dragon Ship. - That is nice too, special on Siege, where ships are expensive. If they Siege Bless the key, they do have a place to live until they can affort a house
    8. A full Magery Spell Book. That will sure spare me alot of work with making spellbooks to new Siege players.
    Please note that some of these items can only be used by characters on your account. Anyone know what items, that are account bonded?

    I don't think we have all the information here. A mythic token is $24.99 at the store. A charger costs $9.99. It seems far fetched to believe they would give those away for just subcription fees. I assume this would be part of some new player pack that would probably run $29.99. Alternately, the token and charger might be bound to the account.

    Please look at my earlier post in this thread. These items are for JAPAN customers as of right now. Not us.

    This is probably the most likely scenario.

    Was it the Armor of Initiation suit, Freja? If yes, it's from the New Player Starter kit that was very quietly rolled out in late summer 2010. I have heard of players on Siege having items from those kits. I distinctly recall one Siege thief being particularly annoyed over them back in spring of 2011!

    Calvin mentioned the kits in a newsletter that many of us never saw and then briefly referred to it in his September 10, 2010 producer's letter: http://uo.stratics.com/uoherald/news/news.php?newsid=1087 . The newsletter copy is here: http://mythicmktg.fileburst.net/uo/newsletter/0810/UO_NL_2010_06_8.html . There's a little more info about the kit here on the UO Guide site: http://www.uoguide.com/New_Player_Starter_Kit_Token
