This thread is about old school UO and your notable memories. I will start: My first powerful memory of old UO was the congregation of people at West Brit Bank. As many here know, UO was perhaps the first real "MMORPG" of the internet era. So the leading gamers (including me) were deeply impressed by the amount of people online within the same gaming atmosphere. There was nothing like it. People were using 14k, 28k, and 56k dialup modems back then. So lag was a regular part of UO. But if you had the cutting edge, 56k modem, then you were set! You had a distinct advantage over everybody. You could react way faster than everybody else. West Brit Bank was filled with people trading, meeting, and thieving. There was no global chat. There were no town teleporters, no way to skip around the world. Runes were rather rare, since people had to spread across the world to mark them. Plus they were dangerous, you often had no way to return from where you came, without magery skill. The scamming and thieving was great. There were literally "no rules" on old school UO. Anything went, if you had your items stolen, and just about everything was up for grabs, then too bad. Also you could get scammed out of houses and items, too bad! SOL for you! The game was hardcore, like the "Wild Wild West". That's what impressed me most, and I still miss it. If you could navigate the spam, buying, selling, scamming, and thieving, then West Brit Bank was one of the most memorable experiences of early UO. Your turn!
