Where are the Roleplayers Hiding?

    ???

    I've gone to the old Altantic roleplayer's forum and found the last interaction is from last May. Is roleplay dead on Atlantic or has the group taken all rp discussion somewhere else?

    I am just getting my character trained up, but I'd love to find a group of roleplayers to play with. Outside of playing a thief, roleplaying a thief is what I enjoy in UO.

    I think its safe to say they are definitely not hiding in general chat!

    Welcome back by the way :)

    There are still some of us who role-play here and there, but no longer a large community as it once was. There was a recent exodus to Catskills by the last of the active guilds I believe.

    Most of them went to Catskills. The ARPC forum has been mostly dead for a very long time anyway though.

    Role players are an endangered species, I'm afraid.

    There is one Inn where couple of people gather on Europa. But I think Catskills has bigger scene. On ATL I never found anyone.

    Maybe we should get something started here again?

    I do have a tavern that I've been thinking about having some events in. Or just having an open night where folks can gather.

    For what it's worth I just fixed up the ARPC forums and they are running well again. But aye, everyone went over to Catskills. I'd be willing to help in a limited capacity if someone wanted to start things up on Atlantic again though.

    Roleplayers are hiding on Siege because Hiding and Stealth are OP there. Come to Siege!

    I've been shard hopping lately between Catskills, Siege, Europa, and Atlantic. Catskills seems to have the largest RPer population for right now. But I am considering checking out other shards.
