Hello all, I just started playing UO again after some time off. I convinced a buddy of mine to start UO so that we could do some champs/peerless. He had never played UO before and started his brand new account last week. As a side note here I had forgotten how complicated UO is. Try explaining to someone who has never even seen UO ("It looks like Runescape. Did they copy Runescape?") why there are 8 virtues ("What are Virtues?"), but only six of them do something in game ("So they are fundamental to Ultima, but two of them are just blank spots on the wheel thingy?"). Why there are two quest engines ("Uh, ooookay"). Or how odd some of UO's subsystems can be ("So, what do seeds do again...but seeds of renewal don't grow into plants?) Anyway, he did some reading and decided to start a tamer. I know, I warned him about how long it would take, but he wanted a pet dragon. So...I got him set up and started. We played off and on 3 or 4 days last week and he was having a good time. On Sunday he was messing around at the rat mini-champs in the Abyss and ended up ressing "the coolest person I have ever met in a game". His words, not mine. So to the person he ressed, who then hung out with him for a bit, talked to him about taming, gave him some artifacts to get started, gave him a pet greater dragon, and loaded him out with 25 million gold, which he has no idea what to buy with, but is totally ecstatic to have, Thank You. You made someones entire UO experience "expletitive AWESOME". He can now be pk'd in Felucca and will still have a smile from his first experience in UO. It's also good to see that UO players are still as off the wall as they have ever been. Thanks again mystery person. That was damn cool of you.
