    Hey there, I have a general question about housing and I thought someone might be able to answer it here as I search. Are there any restrictions as far as placing, or being transferred a house, after creating a new account? A friend of mine is thinking of quitting and I want to make a new account for extra, temporary storage.

    Only thing is that trial accounts can't accept house transfers. It has to be a paid account.

    Well...maybe this way I will get closer to your account total ;).

    It's really tough. Most of our group is long gone. I still have fun here and there but I've been on parking status, and it's hard to encourage people to stay when you aren't sure--due to real life obligations--if you can provide them the lasting content--that online friendship--as part of the deal :p. But I'll try.

    Thanks for replies, guys!

    I believe also the character that you transfer the house to must be at least 14 days old

    Ah there is the rub... Real life does take its toll on our game life.
    I can understand and support the move on bit. but you and I know later on after Real life lets you go free the UO adiction will niggle at their toes.....
    You can pose the quetion of duration of the need to go away if they are looking at a long term then wish them well and get an account ready hun...

    pfft in your dreams to catch up silly hunny bunny ... every bloddy time I turn off a handfull of accounts and drop houses....something comes up and dangles a super carrot on a shard I could really use the extra space.... or dont have a house but really need one.
