Greetings, I have played UO off and on for a couple of years (started originally when T2A came out, then tried again when Third Dawn came out, then again when Age of Shadows came out, and most recently when Stygian Abyss came out) and am wanting to come back to see how things have changed. I am curious, however, what shards are considered "active". I perused the forums and read that Atlantic is (or was) the most populated shard, but it seems to me that Baja has a lot more activity in terms of player-run events and whatnot. I want to start a new character so I can relearn the game, so trying out a new shard doesn't bother me. I just want to make sure I land on a shard that has a good population and a decent mix of player-run events and spur-of-the-moment activities. Thank you for any advice you can give regarding this.
