    hello all,

    first question: which shard is the most active/populated? (mostly PVM). I am returning to UO after a 5 year lapse; so, indeed I expected changes. I did not expect such a population decline, however. I am on the Atlantic shard and it is a ghost town compared to what it once was! granted, I also do not have the newest expansion pack, so perhaps everyone is in the new Ter Mur land? any suggestions for a more "happening" shard is greatly appreciated.

    second question: I am of the elf race and intent to stay that way for some time. is it possible for elves to use "bright hair dye"? specifically, the hair color on the paper doll in the middle of the picture below. if not, are there any other options for elf hair color besides what a 50gp bottle of hair dye will get you?

    any other advice for a returning player (tamer/mage) is greatly appreciated. thank you in advance!

    Atlantic is the most popular shard.

    There are a ton of hair dyes available from Lady Melisande / uostore and other sources with bright color selections, I believe you can get white hair on an elf.
