    My home shard is Baja. The last couple of days I have been moving character to the ghost room for shard trades. Most evey character had to be created and course they enter through Haven. ALmost every time I came in someone there took the time to say hello and asked if I need anything.. rune mage books etc. I explained I was shard trading was from another shard that I was gonna die anyways and thanked them for the offer.

    I have moved many characters this week on other shards and have not experienced warmer greetings from any other shard. Europa Rocks!

    Welcome to Europa !

    Yeah a lot of european players have a soft spot for people who have to start all over again or just started to play UO.

    If you ever move to EU full time, just PM me and I'll give you some stuff to get started :).

    We are a pretty kind shard, but we are known for our drama *grin*.

    Europa has a lot of nice players, one of the reasons I jumped ship from my American shard and came to Europa when it first opened. I had a feeling the experiance would be great to meet others from other countries. I have never looked back tbh, the ping was horrid during the early years with dial up but with cable its great to move around now. Give it a try and you might stay as well. :thumbsup:

    Hate to sound nieve, but what exactly do you mean, about the 'ghost room'?

    Is this a 'free' why to x shard items?

    There is no way to xshard items for free, he means the Casca room ;).

    Still none the wiser. What's the Casca room?:blushing:

    Probably some temporary room where your char is staying for a few days to complete the transfer.

    Not sure tho...never transfered any of my chars in UO.

    I did in an other game and noticed transfering chars can take up a few days.
    In the meanwhile your chars are usualy stuck and you can't log on with them till the transfer is complete.

    the room is part of the event going on now. newbie char/dead means you can get through easier to collect reward points.

    UO transfers usually take about 20-30minutes. during that time, you can't log into the account/shared you are transfering to.

    oh, and debi, we have a nice group of people who do nothing but sit in new haven and help young. And there are also guilds who use new haven for their meet up place, and most of them are recruiting young, or just helping out.
    we really are a friendly bunch, over all, and are trying to invest in our new player base.

    The ghost room found its nickname because during the shard trading running the quests to the Ethreal Fortress you die 99% of the time. This quests is part of the Spring Cleaning deco event going on now. Dont feel bad about not knowing about it. There are many special events I have missed over the years . I am not able to play a lot .I rely upon my Guild leader and mates and friends for most of the info. Course there is always stratics and to be honest I am guilty of not reading enough there are times I never read it except during these times when such a great event is taking place.

    If I were to consider playing another shard Europa would be at the top of my list .

    Here is a link to the Uo Hearald for tons of info for those that may want to check it out..
