SOTA feels to be very "care-bear+" Nhili! From my previous posts you can clearly see that I am not a fan of the sort of wanton ganking that occurred in early UO (from the descriptions I've heard). I like being a care-bear, and I like guys who are too. [Although I really do think the oracle is a bit over the top!] So my nihilistic friend, if you think SOTA is going to be like early UO then please stop deluding yourself, it won't be.
