    Hi there,

    yesterday was a weird day, i was grinding for stuff in a MMO (it was FFXIV) then had a look at steam.

    Shroud of the avatar. What's that? "sandbox/richard garriot".

    Why i didn't know about it? I played a lot of mmorpg/mmo in those years but i miss the Freedom feeling i had in UO (to be honest EVE it's kinda near to it being a true sandbox).

    So i bought the game and the very first night in it i was wandering to kingsport for a starting (inkeeper) quest. Lot of people were dancing in a inn. I take a seat. Lord British was in the crowd!!!

    Drinkin a beer with the man responsible for some school days missed back in the 90's was great! The community was also kind and helpful.

    Looks like this game has a soul. Pls don't spoil this image i had of it, i would cry like a girly.

    ps: My char is Lynyrd Skynyrd, and i'm an italian player aged 32 (sigh) *wave*

    Welcome to the forums, Flint.

    And in the words of Dirty Harry: Do you feel lucky, punk?

    Hey Flint, welcome to the game! I was also having a beer with Lord British, which was nice since I tried to kill him a few times in Ultima 4,5,6 and 7. He's a forgiving guy (forgiveness is a virtue?).

    one small disclaimer the world is rather small and it doesn't take long to go thru all the content after a release but is a great communtity now if the would only open up the full world soon:)

    That is to say the area of the world that is available in these pre-alpha releases is somewhat small. But the mainland will be much larger.

    Welcome to the community!

    While it's true you can get exposed to the main features in a short time, there's actually a lot of content to go through if you want to do it all:

    Over 100 magic/combat skills to try out. Over 200 recipes to craft. Over 40 scenes to explore. Over 50 NPCs to talk to and learn about the world or obtain quests from. I still have not tried out everything yet!

    And yes, the island of The Hidden Vale is tiny compared to the mainland of Novia, which will be built out monthly until launch.

    Hope to see you in game some time!
