Ultima Online

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Peaches, May 16, 2010.

    Peaches Guest

    In October 1997 I found a wonderful game called Ultima Online. I was enthralled with it for 4610 days, but did not make it to 4611 days. I am here to say goodbye to all my board friends and all my friends that I made across many worlds. You all have been good friends and that is what I am thankful for the most. I bid you all adieu and happy days! Bye Ultima online, thank you for letting me be a part of the world!

    I passed on my worldly possesions to some good people. They will have days to pour through all the goodies!


    *hugs to all and goodbye!*
     
  2. I wish I had known you in game. From what I have seen and heard, we might have been friends.

    Good luck in the future...there will be other games...and there will be better times.

    Or we will all die in 2012...and then who cares anyway.

    *smiles* Peaches, you are one of the people I have known longest in this game. I wish you well. *bows*
     
  9. This makes me sad. A couple weeks ago I was saying it would be good to get your opinion on what you would think would have been good disincentives to pking on a classic shard. Now I read this. I wish you well, and I will miss the kittens you would always have as your avatar and sigs.

    Ohh and don't mind the jerks. I always admired how upbeat you would be regardless of how many people jumped on you for your beliefs about pk's and what-not.

    Way too funny, and the laugh ? Well, that was greatly needed on my part. Really too funny.

    And thank you all so much for the farewell. In a few days, I will be deleting all that is uo from my computer. This way, it just simply wont hurt so much, and trust me, the hardest thing was to give away my castle, fully loaded and one tower, fully loaded. The three things I kept on my character was the engraved wedding rings and the two roses with the name of Falford and Advantium. The ring was engraved a very long time ago, and although I wont play again, I know those are in a safe place.

    Meanwhile, have fun in uo, because it is still an awe inspiring game, at least to me anyway.

    :(:( soon to be :):)

    You know if money was a problem, why didn't you just sell the castle? It fetches a nice price if anything.

    It sounds a bit drama like (you've always been good at that), but anyway, good luck to you in the future, sadly UO was not magic enough to keep you.
     
  17. Peaches

    Peaches Guest

    Well, thank you for your posts to me. I won't ridicule you, you did a good enough job at that with your posting.

    As far as selling? Not interested, ever to sell pixels. I gave the houses to a wonderful couple, and I removed three houses at various locations, one of which someone found and placed a house of their own.Two are still empty, and I am sure they will fill up soon too.

    My leaving opened up 3 plots. There is no drama here this time around, only the drama your creating.

    And I honestly think that I have outgrown uo and it was and is time to either quit gaming or find other games to play. I still have lotro and am having a blast with it when I can play, and Istaria. Meanwhile, take it easy and have fun is the only advice I can give anyone. Simple as that.

    Good luck.

    Dude, whats your problem? Its pretty obvious why she is leaving. If you don't know what "Wall Street" problems means then I don't think anyone can help you.

    She didn't say anything negative about the game, she is just saying good bye. Why is her reason for leaving such a big deal to you anyway? Have a secret e-crush on her?

    You're either really dense, or just plain dull. Judging by previous posts you have made, I am willing to put money on the later.rolleyes:


    Peaches - Just ignore this dolt. I wish you the best of luck in whatever you do! I for one can attest to how much attraction this game has. I stopped playing around AoS, and came back about 3 years ago. :p (I am a taming freak... and UO has the best taming of any mmo) So I will not give up hope that you may return someday, but take care of yourself ok? :)

    Thank you
    That pretty much sums up my post. All I wanted to do was say goodbye to my friends, just didn't figure in the frenemies. Heh

    Peaches, I wish you had kept more of your treasures. You will be back some day, and you will miss them. And damn Wall Street and all the hooligans that make that vile sewer their home... :flame:
     
  24. Peaches

    Peaches Guest

    And you know what? I will truly miss you and everyone else. Even the frenemies. I keep saying to myself, I will stop playing uo, each day, but that each day turned into 4 years. And then Wall Street basically took away our american dream, well not quite yet, but tis very close. The stress is phenominal. And saying goodbye was NOT the easiest thing to do and cancelling was even harder. One day, I just might return, but I assured those that I gave my goodies to, that I would never ask for them back, cuz that is just the way I am. See you sometime I hope, and take care Kelmo, your one of a kind! *hugs*

    Thats pretty accurate ? Don't you wonder why my posts are being deleted without notice or anyone telling me ever who did it and why ?

    I can't even discuss moderator actions, I don't even know if it's a moderator that did it ; perhaps the board owner dosen't have to say anything to remove posts.

    I'm glad I can make you laugh however...

    Well that dosen't explain why I has about a dozen posts deleted in the last months and noone ever sent me a notice, does it ? Even you cannot keep track of everything, and in a way I think I'm starting to like you Petra, I think you have a good heart and I'm not complaining. It's all good. Sometimes my english might not express exactly what I mean in the way I meant it, sorry about that I'll try to be sweeter in my syntax choice.

    I don't know if that whole feeling of "having to part" from UO like it was an addiction gone wrong, and people having to respect that... it makes me feel strange...

    I'm happy now, Ultima is Online... please forgive my insolence.

    Hi Peaches,

    It's been a good run, like others said... you will be missed. Safe journeys to you, and hopefully see you out on the gaming scene. Take care...

    Best luck to you Peaches, I hope this is just a Farewell and not a good bye and that sooner or later, if Ultima Online will still be around, you may come back to it.
     
  39. I wish you well Peaches. I had to go through a similar experience after my car accident forced me out of work so I know what you're going through. If you ever need any direction on who or where to go to for assistance let me know. There is help out there for those that are willing to put forth the effort to ask for it.

    Hopefully they will have the "Welcome back to Britania" event again this year around the anniversary, so keep an eye open for it and hopefully you will be able to rejoin your friends for a week or more.

    I hope they give more than a week to returning players. Over a week I can only play a handfull of hours and so a week time for some can mean merely a few hours in the game again.....

    A whole month would be cool, I think, and enough for returning players to figure out if they want to stick again with UO for sometimes......

    Lady Peaches,

    Though I do not know you, I can tell from accolades you have received here that you are an honorable and kind person. For that, I regret that it is my loss that I never had the chance to call you a friend.

    I wanted to share something of my own story with you.

    Starting back in 1997, I played UO and found a great many friends (including my wife). Then around 2000, all of my friends had moved on, my guild (G*B- Guardians of Britannia) had all but disappeared as well. I left UO. When doing so, I placed as much as I could into the banks of my characters.

    In 2004, I returned to the lands. While much had changed, and I had lost my houses (I had 5 on my account). But, I had my characters and the stuff in their bank. Which allowed me to get back into the game quite quickly.

    I would offer as advice that you do the same thing. One can never tell what the future holds, and the lands of Britannia would be Blessed should you happen to walk them again.

    I second the sentiment to the umpteen billionth power.

    I always hate seeing Optimists like you go, Peaches. I've always enjoyed your posts.

    May the winds of life carry you safely to whichever port is next for you ad yours.

    Good Luck and Safe Travels!

  47. Take care Peaches....Though we never met, nor spoke, I can tell you are a kind person from your posts.

    For what it's worth, my profession suffers as well from those idiots on wall st.

    Best of luck and may you find the right turn in the road ahead.
