    It's been about 15 years or so (not counting the last couple months) since I last played UO. Since my return, I've noticed a couple houses in Silvervale belonging to people I knew from back then, but haven't had any luck finding any trace of them (or other guildies) in game other than the houses refusing to decay ... :)

    Has anyone seen any recent evidence of members of Heartkin here on Chesapeake? The two houses in particular are owned by Lilith and Ilina Le Kyteler, but of course there were plenty of other Heartkin. I'd be curious if anyone has any news.

    The two houses in question are in Silvervale, and as I understand it Heartkin founded Silvervale (after my time, unfortunately). I was a member back when the Duir and Castle Lir were still active.

    You're right though, it is sad. I was a little surprised that the shards hadn't been combined, like most other games have done. But then, most other games don't let users have the same impact on the world itself as you get in UO. Plus I imagine the UO servers might be a lot less expensive to run.

    Reading that again, it does raise another question. Is there anyone still playing from that era, say ... 1997 to 2002/3?

    For the time being, I am no longer playing. But I first started in late 1998.

    Cool to see someone from back then, even if they're retired at the moment ... :)

    Zoogi, I have indeed met Naitch once out in Silvervale. It's so quiet out there we both surprised each other ... :)

    I've been around since Oct 97. But I was so young I didn't branch out into the community much until 99-00. Aldruck, Alonzo, Cotton Eye Joe, Zosimus, MIning All Day, were some of my chars from the golden days.

    Cool! I'm afraid the names aren't ringing a bell, though back then the shards were big enough it was conceivable to not know everyone on the shard ... :)

    Francis and Jonathan were my primary two characters (Ornalis is recently made). I hung around Yew (the Duir, where I tended bar as Francis for its first few years) and Castle Lir (with Jonathan mostly).
