So... I've been away from UO for 6 years, and I'm looking to come back and check it all out again. I played from about 1998 to about 2005 on the Great Lakes Shard, mostly as a mage. I got involved in the PVP scene, and artifact spawns, but had to go deep red defending guildmates and the like. I eventually lost interest with all the limitations of being red on my main character, and left the game, though I've paid my subscription fee for 6 years, so maybe my house in Fellucca is still around. Any tips for someone coming back? Can I install using my ancient 3rd Age Install Disks, or do we need something different now? Do that many people still play? Did they ever consolidate shards?
