    It had nothing to do with whether I liked UO or not.. it's school and financially related. I'm a poor college student, no parents help me out.. it's all on me. So I made a judgement call. My education and rent are more important. $10 per month is still a lot to some people. My only regret is..

    I was too lazy to tidy up my bankbox, actually I got drunk the night I was supposed to take care of it, so.. If I'm still too busy or poor or lazy in 2.5 months, my keep will fall. I knew the day was coming, I just decided to be stupid and at the moment didn't care. One among many regrets in my short time here. C'est la vie. My keep has 15-20 soulstones. If it falls someone save the stones.. I know this shard is good about that, so thankfully I'm not that worried.

    There will be many many goodies for people that camp the spot if it falls. At least 20 mil in resources, countless useful BoDs (over 2000 total BoDs).

    I should know within two months if I can afford to bring it back. I hope I can at least pay for one month every two to avoid house collapses (so many people have had problems waiting until day 89 to renew).

    Anyways.. have fun, Siege. My education and rent are #1 to me.

    I met nice people, nicer people than I have ever met in real life.. even those who disagreed with me on everything, at least they understood my PoV, and we agreed to disagree like gentlemen (or gentlewomen). They showed their honor by not stooping to cheap insults, by acknowledging a differing point of view, and carrying on. NEW is full of nice leadership.. don't be afraid to argue with them, if you have a point they'll see it and move on.

    I'll save my more personal goodbyes for "if" my house collapses.

    Just an addendum, and a history of me..

    I signed up for UO the first day I had steady internet access 18 months ago, July 4th, 2008. I played the UO during beta back in 1996 when I was 16 and loved it. It stayed with me for all these years.

    When I came back I started on the Legends shard (it had a catchy name). I stayed in New Haven for weeks training my bard/thief.. carefully hiding in out of the way houses to train/macro my skills.

    My idol was Rogue Jones. But I wanted my reputation safe. I refused to let people know my purpose until I could unleash it on them full-force.

    I asked my Legends friends when it was safe to leave New Haven to avoid thieves/PKs.. they laughed at me. I didn't understand.

    I didn't know what Trammel was until I went to Despise at the ogre lords.. peaced three players to their death, taking pics left and right of their pitiful demise, and tried to loot them. I couldn't, and I almost cried at all my wasted time. The days of Rogue Jones were dead, there was nothing left. Later I learned peacing mobs to kill Trammel players was bannable, I thank those pathetic Trammies for their sympathy on me.

    I almost cried, or maybe I did, at my having paid 6 months up front for a game I didn't like.

    Then I found Siege. You all know the rest.

    Maybe in a month or two.

    I can pay for it with my in-game gold easily. I'll let you know.

    Eh, for some reason I doubt you won't be back. But if it falls I'll do my best to save your stones mate.

    I'll be richer than sin in 6 months when I graduate if I want a job. But I'm shooting for grad-school.. I'm trying to ride out the bad economy hehe. So I'm looking at two years of if's.
