    Well apparently the shard is still here. Kind of sad that a few remnants are trying so hard to rewrite history though. Sneaky you need to get over it. Are you really still bitter over being recruited as a meat shield? Trying to portray yourself as anything other than a mediocre pvper who could only get kills with overpowered templates? Please.

    T*F was taken over by me, Kiana Edoline (an original member also)/Eliri Ammur in late 2011 after Ryan etc no longer logged on. I still log on to this day. Teylen logged on late last year once according to the guild records but that's all. Sanctuary is mostly long gone.

    I'm also still IRL friends with the members of TDM.

    Anyone who wants to catch up, send me a message :smile2:

    Huh? If you don't like my history lesson then you can make up whatever crap you like if it makes you happy. I'm not attempting to rewrite history at all. Everyone knows (though few will probably admit it) that I dominated the shard on many occasions. I was asked for history and I delivered. Oh and you calling me a mediocre PvPer? I actually laughed when I read that bit. Mages (which I almost exclusively PvPed on) can only ever be overpowered when a highly skilled player is playing them, so thanks for that compliment, not that it means much at all coming from you, but thanks anyway nub.

    Some of the biggest pvp guilds on the shard when it opened were

    One - Aussie pvp (chaos) Ind was guild gm ( mages and tank mages )
    TDK - Asian pvp (chaos) ( dex monkeys with alot of blue healers )
    TDM - Nz/Aussie pvp (order) Silent Bob was guild gm ( mages and tank mages )
    -E- Aussie pvp (order) Romp was the guild gm ( mages and dex monkeys )

    some of the best pvpers
    EraseR -awesome tank mage.guild hopped to suit his pvp needs. jumped from One to -E- all the time also had his own stone at war with both guilds. Hi sooka if you reading this !! ;p - Loki
    Mordeath - awesome tank mage.one of the best pvpers in One and up there on the shard
    Romp - awesome tank mage.Guild master of (elite) -E- and a top pvper on the shard, if he couldnt kill u his boys would gate in and gank u if he didnt have his blue healer (ange dewinter) with him
    Thunder/Lightning - awesome mates and tank mages.couldnt seperate them both guild hopped from One to -E-

    may have missed a few good people but if u were around when these guys were playing 1997-2003 obviously we all came from diff servers but these are the names they will be remembered by ( these were the days UoExtreme & UoAssist were banned )

    please feel free to add its been 12 years since i quit and alot has changed id love to play again just wondering if anyone from back then played.

    Hi All :)

    I have some great memories of the Oceania shard! :) I was guild leader of FEN, a founder in B*D (FEN sprouted from it) - and an officer in SoE. I remember being neighbours to Lionheart for a while, and I'm sure some of you will remember my house just outside of Umbra, with the bagball field on the roof :)

    We had great guild wars with VKR, TBD, B*D, SOE.

    My main char was Tynoor in FEN (Fallen Empire of the Night) (Guild leader), which would have been created in 2003.

    The guild is still running in WOW and there's still a few of the guys from SOE in there with me :)

    I'm still around, Kiana, and my house still stands - and likely will until the day they close the servers for good.

    Was a member and still talk to Bob via facebook from time to time. I sold my account and then came back with a new one. Still playing.

    There was also, Stigmartyr & Ivana humpalot I think. Heard rumours they were alts for Ind so mute point if true.

    wow this certainly does bring back some old memories few of the names i almost need to wipe a tear away from my eye
    theres alot of names i need to give an honourable mention to and if i've forgotten you im sorry

    fink i don't know if your still around but good to see you mate
    calis riakel how can i forget you you did so much work to keep ORPA up to date and was one of the best gaming experiences ive ever had
    good ole majestic you minto bum do you still take your little dapper secret agent hat around with you ? the one you wore down to the -E- guild meet at bronte beach

    the guilds that ive been in
    i think the first guild that i joined was SoE and they were a great guild except perhaps for the mark on their record known as redwolf
    their numbers slowly dwindled off and i believe some of their members were absorbed into an assortment of ORB VKR and OTR
    from SoE i actually moved toward pvp and joined up with TDK, Vitus was their GM and were a great bunch of guys one of the best nights ingame i had was sitting up late untill 6 am in the morning guarding shadowlords playing one of the ingame chessboards against true red
    but as with most things over time the members started to quit while TDK never disbanded the members just stopped logging on ToXiC myself and a couple of others ended up joining One, which while the guildmaster on the stone was Ind the inner council pretty much consisted of Ind and Mordeath and probably Thornn to a lesser extent, who for some unknown reason didn't really like me due a comment i made about True Blue
    Drax Akorin taught me alot about how to effectively play a dexxer character, later on down the track the game started to change more and more
    it seemed to become all about the items whoever had the best items was the best pvper, i wasn't prepared to spend the rediculous amounts of gold or time required to get these items so i just reclined back to trammel as most of the real pvpers oceania saw started to move to shadowbane

    during the time that i spent in One and some of the time in TDK
    i made a good friend her name was Sun ingame together we formed a guild it was a trammel based guild known as BCB the black council of britannia
    i even had a few of my friends playing the game during this time, Sisonic, Terek and Red they were playing for quite a while but eventually quit
    if anyone actually remembers that Sun and i got married ingame
    and as of this august it will be our 2 year anniversary
    i have since moved to USA have been here for a couple of years
    a few weeks ago my wife and i were reminiscing about old times in UO so i did a bit of searching around we are playing on a server called UO Forever
    funny thing is im in a guild with Avenger / Supreme Avatar and he doesnt appear to be a **** ( I know i was surprised too)
    felucca only shard with a UO:R ruleset which means no overpowering items like faster casting and no item insurance

    to any of you other people that say your pvpers
    ive never heard of you

    Oh, wow, apparently I've still got an account here and everything. In fact the forums are telling me I've got a trophy for posting 750 times. That can't be right...

    I doubt I'll be remembered by any here, except perhaps Jah (... "perhaps"). I didn't participate much PvP (can probably count the battles I attended on my fingers), and my main character, Boris (see avatar), was just another legendary tamer mage wearing a robe in a sea of legendary tamer mages wearing robes. I spammed the heck out of UOGuide though. Heh. If you see the possessive form of "its" mistyped as "it's" over there, or "lies" mistyped as "lays", those errors are my fault. All of them.

    Anyway, my first character - Bomb Bloke - was a basic dexer in TC. He could fight things, but I was mostly rubbish at melee combat. Probably spent the better part of a year training him up against Daemons in Ilshenar, while occasionally being dragged out to a spawn. The only reason I was in the guild was because of my brother, who IIRC mostly played "Buster".

    He was not a PvM type. For example, once I asked him where to get Bags of Sending. According to him, they were something you picked up off players you killed at spawns; he honestly didn't know any more about the matter than that, and as it got him a plentiful supply he didn't care.

    Anyway, one day I decided to make a tamer with magery as a side, and never looked back. With Boris, I soon joined RED, then S^R, then EOB. Focus moved from PvP and champion spawns to PvM and peerless. When I started editing UOGuide, my knowledge of the game's systems shot up to "obsessive" levels. I was able to keep adding content for months after I stopped playing the actual game as a result.

    Thing was, I never had a credit card, and one year I got sick of bugging my brother to handle the payments for me and that was that. I guess it was around late '09 that I ditched. I guess I started some time around '05, so call it four or five years attendence? I don't even know. I've a nagging feeling the game hasn't changed much since left, but I'm curious to know if anyone's still playing (familiar or otherwise... is there a server population?). In reality it'll probably be at least a month before anyone even reads this, but hey, I can wait.

    I'd like to at least think Fink - pretty much the only roleplayer on the whole shard, and an amusing one at that - is still being Fink somewhere, even if that "somewhere" is no longer UO.

    My screenshot folder isn't much chop, but here it is for those interested.

    Edit: Oh, and I know I've got buckley's chance, but I've gotta ask. See, there was this bug where sometimes houses failed to go into IDOC status. It's been five years and all but I don't suppose...???

    Strong words from someone who used to try to 'assassinate' me with this archer who was so lethal that he couldn't even interrupt a conversation. He'd just sit there shooting arrows causing a minor inconvenience and we'd keep talking.

    Fink is kicking around :)
    He's not playing much in the way of MMOs though. I tried to get him into LOTRO for a bit, but it didn't stick.
    If he's playing anything you'll likely see him pyro-ing his way around Team Fortress.

    (Me, I'm usually in either Planetside 2 or still kicking around LOTRO these days, but mostly it's family, work and politics instead of gaming)

    Shows how little you remember. That archer was a sigil thief and runner who had +stealing gear on with no HCI at all. She (not he) wasn't designed to PvP because I hate PvPing on archers. I would use her to steal and run the sigils and then I'd jump on a mage (usually Toxen) and swat you away like a fly. All you used to do was pop out of stealth for a second, try and hit me, then run off and try to hide again and usually die in the process. Considering you played such a pathetic little stealth dexer who couldn't last 10 seconds against my mages without running or dying, you're in no position to even be talking about PvP.

    I think the Oceania shard pretty much died when Fink left :( I loved seeing him at the bank whenever I logged on.

    joined just to post in this thread - some of the names i remember from when i played 00-01 :

    -E- was arguably the best pvp guild around, along with one
    romp was the man, but i think thunder was probably the best pvper i saw

    ErazoR had a ping so fast back then, youd swear he was playing on the server - i can remember walking along then suddenly "you are dead"

    im thinking wtf? so i check the journal and see the name ErazoR... explained it all lol

    faction wars were huge when they started, was chaos

    some of the names i remember are calador, thing, seabat, code ninja, ricky

    Hi all. Wow what a mad trip down memory lane. I remember so many of you.
    My main char was Shady (necro mage). My mates Gilgamesh & Guts got me into the game around 2001/2002 I think.

    Guilds I was in was KOV, TDK(the dark knights), S^R, LS(Leet Soldiers). Others that I can't remember.
    Used to do lots of spawns (ganked sometimes by TC & OPK). I loved the times I killed Morrigan, I was cheering.
    I remember you Sneaky (Canberra still suck, haha). I worked with Lihan & got him into the game.
    Played with Nightowl & crew. I remember heaps of people going to the Krall castle one year. Jahira went to that.
    Think I played for around 4 years or so.

    Wish I could remember more.

    Other dudes I played with was Cornelius, Hatasan, etc.
    Anyway, if anyone remebers me & wants to shoot the ****, hit me up. Many a good time was spent playing this game.
    I currently play wow, & have since quitting uo, though pvp was always the best in uo.

    How could i forget, had my own guild for a bit also. D12. Did plenty of spawns with this guild. Eveningkiss was someone i hung out with heaps, aswell as Arcadion, Warmongerer & others.
    Played with Dain.
