Looking at maybe firing up a guy on a freeshard. The one that caught my eye this time was

www.game-master.net , Adam Ant's server (look up his stories on the left, pretty cool)


Just curious if anyone else might be up for it. We had a pretty good run last time, but it seems that server is gone now. Chin, you there? CHINNNNN!!!!

I am doing things different this go around - I am going to focus on crafting, then switch to a more adventure based class.  Mining even as we speak!

Protip:  When you first log in take a few shovels out and mine mine mine to 100 str - this is the best way to max strength and will give you 1k ingots or so to sell.  Beat on a drum for dex (can use razor to set this up so you do both at the same time).

I made a guy.  Went out into the woods, beat cows to gain mace skill, sold hides to the NPC for some money.  Got bored, logged out.  I'll be around.

Incredibly bad, laggy performance.  And I can't actually sell anything to the NPC for money, they just take my leather or whatever and give me nothing.  Wow, I'm totally immersed in the player run economy.  I wonder if that one naked guy AFK at Brit bank wants to buy leather.  He's the only person I've seen.

-Network the servers are on was having issues; its been cleared up.
-You cannot sell items to NPC's - there is a consignment system; you give the item to the NPC, he gives you a check when a player buys the item. 
-Unattended macroing check only happens when mining or chopping wood.

There's no way I'm clubbing goats for the amount of time needed to get up to a useful level of skill.  Not in 2008.  I'm out.

So I decided to see if there are any RP freeshards.  Because I'm, you know, a Trammie roleplayer fag.  And RP would give me something else to focus on besides beating goats or whatever.  So I'm sitting in the IRC channel of an RP shard, when someone goes "Hey, are you WUA from F13?"  Turns out one of them lurks here.  I totally felt internet famous for a second.

I might just join you.  I am debating between EVE Online or this.  I thought all UO shards were dead (decent ones at that w/o the trammie crap) and that you guys had given up until I found these forums.  I think if anything I will log on for a few hours a day.  Unattended macroing check?... not too horrible.  I have to now get reacquainted and get all setup with macros again... ugh.  Oh well... I'm all for it ;-).

What has my attention on this is that its FREE.  I'm not too keen on the whole pay to play thing yet from a financial point.

I am still playing - working on crafting still.  Hoping to be mostly done this week or next.  I am 100% focused on it so I do not get sidetracked!

Server is extremely stable.  There are not as many concurrent players as was on Metro - maybe 40 or so whenever I log in.

40 isn't too bad.  I'm happy with that.  Metro had at its best maybe 100, but that was on good days.

Now THAT is very important as Metro had some major freaking asshats in it which was the majority of the people.  I wonder if we could get I Love Lamp in here.  I like that guy.  He's so easy going and cool.

Downloading UO as we speak.  I Love Lamp is still around.  He will be joining us!  WOOOHOOO!  Family is coming back for another go.  Boy has stuff changed since I last regularly played.  Just a brief summary - divorce, father passed away (this totally sucked to put it lightly), moved about 1,200 miles away (up north to PA, quite a change from FL), started a whole new life.  And that's the short version.

Wow, sorry to hear about the strife.  I posted a link for one of the older clients which you can bit torrent - took me about 5-10 minutes to download.  Also, I just hit GM Blacksmith - I will be working on carpentry a little bit next, but want to shift more towards and adventuring class.  Still debating on what path to take; I am definitely going to have a poison archer for PvP stuff, but may make a stealth chest picker for money purposes- once I get some cold hard cash I will probably get a tamer up.

The divorce in all honesty was a good thing.  Even though she may sound "great"... don't judge a book by hits cover.  She likes horror movies and video games... sounds good right?  WRONG.  Horrible attitude and totally disrespectful attitude and lazy as f*ck.  I so thought that's the type of girl I wanted.  I was wrong.  My new GF may not like video games and gets terrified of horror movies, but she loves and respects me more than anything else in this world.

I'm playing a really nifty RP freeshard that's basically a new game built in the UO engine.  Custom map, items, combat system, and so on.  It's small and you have to send in an application to create an account, but the pre-screened playerbase lets them get away with shit you could never do on a shard open to the general public.

Like it's open PVP with the (thankfully remote) potential for permadeath, there's a system for house break-ins, and so forth.  But if you're just using those systems to grief, they'll just throw you out.  Fuck having a huge playerbase of random loltards.  I'd rather have a high enough GM/player ratio that you actually CAN "have nice things".

There's no robots, elves, ninjas, or neon weapons.  I'll probably never go back to "real" UO.

What's the link WUA?  I'm curious to look into it.  Since my GF works until 11pm most days I have lotsa time.

Oh and my ex-wife... she did play UO for a little while.  She was cool to team up with in UO, but in RL she sucks.

Currently patching as we speak.

I quit my RP freeshard.  As neat as it was in some regards, the grind was absolutely ball-crushing, the custom combat system was not any fun, and dying in the wrong place could wipe out a week's work.  RP is neat and all, but at some point I need to go out to make money and not feel like I'm punching the clock.

The RP was fantastic, but as a game it just didn't work very well.  Skill and stat gains were absurdly slow, making money as a newbie was even slower, and trying to have a totally player-driven economy on a shard with a peak concurrency of like fifteen people was just bad.  I mean there are player-owned NPC vendors selling stuff, but it's all random clothes and bits of armor that hasn't been restocked in a month.  Good luck just buying a torch or a pair of scissors.

Man, roleplayers are retarded.  All I'm looking for is a freeshard that isn't a bunch of PVP LEETZORS AFK MACRO FTW stupidity, but I keep running into other stupidity.  This other RP shard I was just looking at seems to enjoy jumping it's narrative back and forth centuries in time, for months on end, with characters from one era being unplayable in others.  Yeah, let me register just in time to get deleted, jackholes.

Triple-post for the win.  So there's this one.

Quote
7 Year-Old reliable, friendly PvM/RP shard without the cybersex, "RPed PvP" or applications longer than a job app. Custom world, professional staff and developers, and the best players anywhere. Try us!

Sounds like a contender.  So far the production values are the best I've seen.  I haven't logged in yet, but getting set up is ridiculously easy.  Instead of laboriously modding the client with tons of custom graphic files and shit, you download one file and it does everything.  It even has it's own patcher.

I know I just keep posting, but this shit is so fucking assinine.  That last shard I linked?

Quote
First things first; We are a 'cooperative' role play game, much like a traditional pen-and-paper role play game with friends, around a table. In no way do we encourage or support antagonistic relationships between players or their characters. Friendly, mutually agreeable rivalries are fine, provided any involved parties entirely agree on the scope, duration and intended result of any such situation.

Quote
Due to the 'cooperative' nature of role play on Shadowcove, it is strongly frowned up for any player to role play any sort of opposition to the Crown. Morgaine allows her subjects to enjoy great freedoms, and in return asks only that when her people need her, that they also obey her.  Players who might consider opposing the Crown in any way must understand that eventually, such role play would lead down a path that would end very badly for the offending character; perhaps as far as 'perma-death', where the character would be captured, tried and imprisoned or executed, meaning that the character itself, and any of its possessions, would have to be deleted.

Their "roleplay" forum is a ghost town of people sporadically advertising their vendors and having scavenger hunts for missing flowers and shit.  As far as I can tell, there's no actual RP at all because the insane Nazi carebear who runs the place has shut down all forms of human conflict.

Damn bro, you are striking out like crazy :(.  I'm still in Angel Island and macroing my skills up.  Probably not what you want, but I'm enjoying it.  Hoping to have more time soon so I can actually sit down and play.  GF was sick and off of work for the whole week so no PC for me during that time.
