    Hello kind people of SotA! I was following and supporting the game since 2013 as every other loyal Ultima fan. Unfortunantly I only had a chance to join you now for some reasons, you know how the life is... Anyway, no need for drama now. I just want to say hi and wish you fun!

    I guess going through the resources will give me the best possible start for my new adventure. If you have any resource recommendations please let me know.

    While there are bountiful resources, player videos, guides, etc. - there's really no substitute for finding a nice group of players to help advise/guide and/or answer questions as you make your journey through the game figuring things out.

    There's a lot of guilds who are always recruiting and most can offer you a cost-free housing option (inn room) to help with early storage needs until you get a bit stronger for carrying stuff. I appreciate you may not want to jump into that straight away, but most people in the game are helpful without any strings attached - great community.

    Welcome Sivon,

    If you're near Soltown, stop by the Outlander Welcome Center, City of Knowledge and Trees, where you'll find ingame books, displays and other knowledge. Cheers!

    Thank you all for warm welcome and useful tips. Most of the things look stranger to me right now but thanks to you I will adapt quickly. Also I will be contacting Hospitallers when I have complex in-game questions.

    I couldn't feel more welcomed. :)

    Also, you said since 2013, if that means you are a Kickstarter /pledge backer.
    Then when you get to the first Bank in game there will be a Claim Rewards button which will sort you with whatever items you pledged for.
    (If it doesn't then check your Account page and see that it is linked to your Kickstarter bid.

    Welcome @Sivon. Solace bridge is lower tier and has quite a few resources. There's quite a few zombies and spiders so be careful.

    Also right click other players to see options like friending, whispering, dueling, trading, etc.

    Our friends list is one of our fast travel modes, f is to access friends list, alt f for looking for group, o for emotes. Don't forget to have other players trade crafting recipes with you to save you a lot of gold and frustrations.
