  1. So I got curious and reactivated my account. I haven't puttered around in UO since Samurai Empire and there are quite a few changes. I had a few questions that I was hoping people could help me with:

    * What's the most populated city on the Great Lakes realm? Britain? Luna? I didn't see too many people around when I was in Brit yesterday. Real people anyway. For some reason a bunch of npcs with (Hatred) attached to their names kept trying to kill me though. What's that all about? I'm sure it was coincidental with my return, but it felt like a strange welcome back :p .

    * Where to get good gear? I checked out UO Auction but it was completely empty. Back in the day people would list literally thousands of items there. Is there some sort of in game replacement? Or do I just need to go vendor to vendor to find stuff?

    * Following up on that, I assume gold inflation is worse if anything. Will a few million buy me any decent arties/gear for my dusty old paly?

    * Are there still pick up groups that go to Doom? I went to Ish to kill some dragons and random paragons and stuff... but it would be fun to do something with people.

    * I wish I hadnt let my house decay, but I guess it's been so long that anything I owned would only have been limited use. Except for that soul stone... I don't suppose there's any way to recover that? Are they available as rewards? I think I still have some vet rewards i never used.

    Anyhow, hope to see folks around. I never thought Id log back in but it was actually pretty fun to play last night.

    I'll take the easy question :D

    your soulstone, if still around, will still be bound to your account.. I play Legends, and one of the IDOC guilds has set up all the soulstones they've found over the years so that returning players might claim them

    if no such place exists on GL you are still not SOL... there is now a red soulstone available as a first year veteran reward, which you can claim, and it's a full stone, not a fragment

    and welcome back... :)

    1) the most populated cities are Luna and Haven. Luna's where the banksitting happens. what you discovered was the invasions. Most of the moongate-able towns get periodically invaded, which is probably what was the final nail in the coffin of Britain. There's Hatred, where the NPCs attack you, Falsehood, where the NPCs steal from you, and Cowardice, where the NPCs run away screaming. At any given time, there could be an invasion in one of the main towns. This could involve slimes, dragons, elementals, or any host of other things. If you see a crimson dragon... run. They're nasty, and you need a group to kill them. :)

    2) Luna's kinda the "shopping mall" of Britannia, but it's way overpriced. You pay for that convenience.

    3) It does take a few million, as far as I've been able to determine, to get artifacts, but you can get decent suits for not too bad if you're not wedded to getting the uberest effects.

    4) No idea about Doom, but the last time I was in there, it was pretty deserted.

    5) You can get Soulstones as a 1st year veteran reward. There's no way to recover your old one unless you get lucky and found whoever looted it (if anyone did. If they didn't... you're out of luck.)

    What shard are you playing on?
