First, I havent played UO since 2000 or 2001. I just reactivated under the 14 day trial to see if it can provide the fun it used to. Much to my surprise the characters I had 8 years ago still exist. If i do come back it will likely be to SP, as I generally like to play both good and evil chars (read pks and anti's) and i dont want to deal with stat loss. I have a couple questions though. 1) The charecters I have from way back when are a mage tamer and a mage archer. Are those still viable templates? 2) has the skill system been changed at all on sp? Last I remembered you could only gain like 2-3 skill points a day total for all skills, is that accurate? 3) What is the community like on sp? is it active and are their a decent ammount of players online? what is the peak playing time est? 4) is all the housing land taken?
