    Sadly my friends two more castles and a smaller residence fell yesterday and today. I don't know if there was any spoils as I wasn't there when they fell. I did have them marked and checked on them just a few minutes ago. All have disappeared to the blackness that is befalling our Kingdom. Soon I am afraid that the only survivor shall be Tyrant himself. Too bad that the day of the 2d gamer is fast coming to an end. Pity. UO can only be copied. It will never be duplicated.

    You, myself, and the rest of the survivors are the only hope for repopulation. There has to be something we can do to attract more people.

    This is a serious issue. Any suggestions on reviving the shared?

    Fear not Origin, Tyrath has started migrating his Atlantic Characters to Origin. The first to arrive was last night and the Zento Garden Center is now open to the public. Right outside the North East Gate on the south side of the road. Want to hunt Raiders and not have to Run to a soulforge, just head over to the keep that popped up there yesterday with a Public forge. In time and enough Xfrs The Zento Garden Center will host public dye tubs and a rune Library. With winter coming I have more and me time to UO See ya one seige Vic :)

    Know the feeling From May through October I am lucky to get 3-4 hours sleep a night. Things slow down on the farm and I only do one year round market through the winter so lots of time by the fire with UO. Hehe I keep letting my packys go in the bar from Xfring :)

    I am semi-interested in finding a castle plot if there is one still open Yellow beard (or anyone that knows one on Origin) so let me know.

    Thanks!

    I have never not been able to find a tram spot somewhere. Not always the best locations, but there seems to be be at least one somewhere at any given time.

    Thanks! As long as they're in relatively safe zones for players to visit the museum once I place and get stuff moved to it.

    I truly thought that you and Victim of Siege would be the two taking down the flag when the final day of Origin finally comes about.

    Glad to hear it! The worst thing that happened to Origin was the implementation of the Abyss. It in itself was a good thing but until then Origin was very close. Lots of people getting together both in game and in the forum. Then all of a sudden for the simplest of reasons (town structure) bickering started. The bickering soon changed into name calling and then outright flaming each other. We lost a lot of not just good people but great people. I still go by the houses of those who stopped playing very shortly after the implementation and wish they were still playing. Some still have their accounts others are just a memory. Origin in its meager numbers has never attracted the masses but the people it did attract for the most part were and still are the best players in UO. Those were the days *sigh*

    We used to have a ton of playeres - at the point where I (as Cassie Darksong) was running 2-3 auctions a week and there was enough support for a second auction house - and we had plenty of people at the auctions.

    Then after some of the patches and things, people slowly started leaving and going to other shards. Then I heard complaints of "No one is playing here so I am leaving" and them making it worse.

    I'm sad that origin is so empty - and I wish I had more time to play than I do.
