    Are you still alive? Still out there?

    Times have come and gone, really miss the old groups I RP'ed with. UO was the only game that I have EVER RP'ed... nothing else ever measured up (and I have been through a ton of MMOs since then).


    So much has come and gone since the original days, in truth, I stopped playing UO in 2000. Just too much RL going on. But, times come and go, and anxious to try out something new. UO honestly is the only game I have ever played where I reminisce and think about ... well game play, friends, RPG? Which is hard for me to acknowledge, but impossible for me to deny. Crazy escapism. :)

    A big shout out to: EOL (Elves of Light) -- Favorite and really miss playing (King Ham, Lady Cherry, you out there? Athina?) , Qu'ellar Vlos'Ilhar, and the Duskwalker crew. You are all missed.


    Really hope SOA helps create some new memories.

    Cheers all!

    Lord British comes!!!!

    - Kal (a.k.a hmmm no no, why spoil a game).

    Looks like there's at least a few of us around. I myself am feeling nostalgic these days. Hope we can start something similar here. I was Damon Singh back in the day.

    Hello and welcome!
    Was known as Stile, Nixie Everhate, and Winston (AKA Tarchev), among others. Guild leader of Knights of the Exodus (Not the first, I took it over), Knights of the Black Company (Knights of the Exodus renamed), and Kingdom of Moorhaven. Co-GM to Bedlam at one time.

    Also was a member of Clan Dalaigh of Kinship Village (guess I still am as we took lifetime membership agreements).

    Can't wait till this comes out. Depending on how the "shard" set-up, or whatever, works we should all try to recreate Catskills. I still talk to a couple of my Fighters of Jhelom buddies and I know they'd be interested in this as well.

    I definitely want to be involved in trying to recreate a player based town like kinship.

    I have a house coming as does my mom. Hopefully will be able to group with others of like mind, as im sure well see different types if player ran towns if groups can pull it off.

    As far as a guild goes im definitely running the caverns. How small vs. how big it gets will be hard to say until game time.. I do have restrictive recruiting but all of my recruitment practices are the sort that a guild lasts for years uses. Much from my own experience combined with reviewing long term based guilds policies. More restrictive does mean slower initial growth but my experience is once you get over the hump and have a good dozen active members, the problem becomes not to grow to fast!

    Open recruitment tends to get big numbers fast, but the diversity in desires, opinions, lack of time to form close friendships, etc tens to either cause the guild to fail OR huge player churn.. And a lot of drama. Id rather be a guild of 20 then a 100 with those issues :).

    I do hope we see more catskill players soon! Id bust out my icq contact list of 2000+ from back then, but doubt many of them use ICQ anymore so haven't bothered.

    ROFL! You said ICQ! Ya know, that thing was pretty damn helpful. And honestly, for a all around IMer couldn't be beat.

    Unfortunately not me! The "Garbageman" nickname is a lot younger than my UO characters ;)



    Ah, good old dependable (?) ICQ. I haven't used it in about 5 or 6 years but I still remember my number! 36007945 - if anyone wants to add. No idea how that # is still floating around in my head...

    I still have my ICQ number memorized as well (2567231). I had one at one time that was 5 digits long once upon a time, even before UO... but had ditched it when I never used it then when UO came out couldn't figure it out and had to make a new account. I still prefer ICQ over most messenger services. ITs straight to the point use, doing what needs to be done, doing it simple and easily, just cannot be beat!

    Garbageman, I will definitely add you on ICQ! probably not tonight as im trying to wrap up a few things before bed, but threw it on my desktop note pad to do. So expect a pigeon from me at some point *grins*

    hmmm *scribbles down notes*
    Kingship of Catskills?

    hmm

    *mumbles* "Remains of Duskwalker Keep*... no no no....

    *grumbles*

    "The Crater" *raise eyebrow and ponders his sanity*


    How about just "City of Catskills"?

    CoC?

    *Edit*
    And I am going to LOOK for my ICQ info, as INSANE as that might be.

    Catskills was the best gaming experience I've ever had, and I still talk about it to this day to my friends who started MMOs with more recent titles.

    I was in Zombie Horde as Elron Darkbrow

    Was guild leader of the Shadowlanders as Septimus, did some RP events with Dove the healer (she was great, miss active rpers like her)

    had an imp that hung around the shadowclan orcs named "Peep the Imp"

    Also had a mini guild of snake men called Caarth. Character was S'srith.

    In a swamp near Winterfell (think to the south west if i remember correctly, off of the road) I had a kind of hermit character named Graxous...big green beard who would share stories and trade with travelers.

    those...were....the...days!!!

    Did you RP in with the Crimson Alliance at all? (CA)
