    I'm contemplating firing up my old account and checking things out.

    Last time I seriously played was back in 2005.

    The last time I logged in, during a "Return to Brittania" deal ages ago, I ended up in Skara Brae while it was unguarded and immediately killed and looted by a VMP. I'd like to avoid that this time.

    Hell, would an account this old even still be in the system? What's the account management link?

    The account should still be there. There was a thread in Uhall (in the main forum area of stratics) a while back detailing the process of reactivating old accounts. It can be a bit of a hassle, and ultimately you might have to email Messana directly (one of the folks working on UO). The difficulty seems to be directly correlated with how much you remember (acct email, etc).

    As for Siege, I've been here just shy of a year, and haven't seen any VMP in that time. But a lot has changed since 2005. This is one of the more active shard forums, and certainly one of the more helpful. If you get your acct set up PM me and I can get you started.

    Welcome back Varka

    VMP is long gone, even when I believe we do have at least one old VMP but he won't dry loot you.
    Edited
    Maybe I'm mixing it up, maybe the one I am thinking on was J-D, not VMP

    just a heads up, there is a new PvP system Called VvV (Virtue vs Vice) that temporarily makes it possible for you to be attacked in most Felucca cities. you will see a gump when the fight starts and it gives you the option to teleport to the nearest moongate to avoid the conflict.

    Your name sounds familiar, which guilds did you run with? Mike-D just started showing up again. He is the only VMP that I've seen. Spyderbite was around for a few months but has left again.

    I was in KRT with Raziel and Setanta and Tigs/Kaleigh. We were in the White Council with CWS and KSS as I recall. Back before Py Lethius left, and Darth and Yoda would show up and try to **** all over every KSS event they ever had...

    That does not changes, that he is right, he more or less grow up on Siege, believe he is the only kid the shard never successed to kick of the shard. Trust me, some tryed very hard and do still try.
    You may call him many thing and he had been nasty in the past, but I don't think the definition of idiot fit him.

    Ok ok, I know, he is growing, but saying he did grow up is maybe a little to early as he still have his kid moments :p but he is growing and will grow up, even when it may take a few years more :)

    There are a few CWS still around. You might be able to contact them with the gilfane.com board. Good luck when you come back.
