    Hi All,

    I am a returning player after many, many years. I play on Catskill and I was in a Guild called the "Order of the Griffon". I now find myself the leader of the guild. No members have been active since October 2007. I am trying to connect with anyone that may have been assolciated with this group. I once was considered the Griffon Ranger but I am now listed as the "Ancient Griffon". Our Keep is gone and I can find no traces of the guild. I only knew my guildmates by their character names and I have lost all ICQ info on them. I am curious as to what happened. I see 2 mass migrations of members out of the guild and I would like to know what happened. The members that I (Telchar) was most associated with were named; Quill, Thaloric, Inigo Montoya, Moressa. Anyone have any info?

    Hello
    Was this what type of guild? PVM, PVP, or RP?
    If you use ICQ my # is 339303759 and look for the chat group on icq Chronicles of Catskills many older players are in it you can ask them

    Thanks Jade,

    The Greiffons were a RP guild. We had around 20 - 25 members (not huge). We established a Keep SE of Yew.
    Good Times!

    Hey Telchar. The name sounds somewhat familiar to me. but no specific memories.

    There is still an active RP community on Catskills. Do you still use ICQ? If so, feel free to ICQ me at #6082388 or message me here.

    Montoya sounds familiar, I wonder if that's Toya? Was she from Canada?

    Hi Telchar, I remember you guys. I am a recent returning player too, and haven't seen any of the guys you mentioned around, but that doesn't mean they are not playing.

    I recommend getting on the RP1 stone, Judas runs a pretty good guild, and its a good way to circulate.

    Feel free to send a PM.

    Thanks Jaden,

    No Joy on your ICQ number or with a search of "Chronicles of Catskills". I admit to being quite rusty with ICQ. I'll keep searching though.

    Thanks Again

    Thanks Judas,

    I have added you to my ICQ list (you're actually the only one there). I cannot seem to find the pm option on this site perhaps bcause I am new here.
    I will send you a note on ICQ. I am just starting to re-explore UO and I am not sure exactly what my plans are. I will RP while I am online. It would
    be great to meet some of the old guild again or perhaps to resurrect the guild for "oldtimes sake"

    Hey Bruce,

    Thanks for the reply. Not sure what the RP1 stone is<?>. I have not found the PM option yet on here. I am soooo rusty with this stuff. I am not sure what my goals are but I enjoyed getting
    my original chars back and wondering around a bit. Our keep is gone and no trace of my guild (except my title(. Time will tell. Keep your ears open and let me know if you think of anything.

    I believe I received your request and send you a message. Hopefully we can talk soon.

    Depending on your play times, you should check out player event, tavern night, or EM event schedules above. Those would be good places to find people, including other role-players. There's also an in-game RP Community Chat channel now. Sometimes, when people come back to UO these days, it seems harder to find people, but a lot of the time it's just more about knowing where / when / how to find them.

    Oh, and RP1 is the name of an RP guild. It's more of a collective with some sub-groups and independent characters on it; we've mostly done this for the convenience of guild chat and making sure people can find others to play with.

    Wow, been so long since I heard the name Inigo Montoya in game. I believe he won the Umbra Taverns Iron Chef Sosaria using the secret ingredient, MONGBAT!

    Brian,

    Haven came after I left the game. When I left it was Pcclo and all my runes still say Occlo. The bank is named Occlo so I believe that it still exists.
    Also after I left the realm split into 2 "twin areas". The Occlo I am in is the one with trees yet no leaves. It is my thought that the realm with leaves
    contains the islabd with Haven<?>. Again I have much to learn and re;earn

    LOL Many Thanks Mi'Lady,

    I have indeed travelled many of the lands that you mention and I am not without the means to leave this area. I do find many,many changes to the laws and regulations
    guiding proper actions in the lands. I have yet to become comfortable relearning lost skills. If by chance you should see some idiot in a tunic and sandals attacking an
    ETTIN with a butcher knife say hello as that will be me!

    Scarab Brae to Tur Mur that is a stretch! Like I said, if you see some bumpkin wondering around looking quite lost, say "Hi" as that will be me searching for you for help (or a meal). Be kind.

    Jaden,

    Set me up a schedule and I'll do what I can to attend. I have been struggling getting things in order, housing, spells, tools etc. I am too old to be chasing all of this.

    Let me know what you come up with.

    Thanks for the help!!!!!

    Many Thanks Jaden & Daeny,

    You make my return seem much more comfortable.. Let me explain a little of my situation. A bit *ooc* I am afraid. I have played UO for at least 20 yrs. Intensely at first and off and on ffrom there. When I first quit I was studying to be an official UO Councilor ( my pride was great! ). At the time we had the classic client and UOAssist. Now I find I need to use the Enhanced client so I can see it well enough on my laptop. Not happy with that. I am learning but I miss UOA. At the time we chatted using ICQ. I do not know how to use the ingame chat. I assume I will learn with practice. Spellbooks and things like that are NP. I managed to hang on to most items over my long sleep. Things like Bulletin boards are a bigger issue. Cats seems to be much lower in vendors than I remember. I can build a carpenter and a smith but that would take a bit of work ( time will tell ). I have a rune to your local moongate so I can show up at any point. I look forward to meeting you guys and chatting about events in the lands. I will stop by often to see if I can catch one of you out and about.

    Thanks again for the welcome!

    Hello,
    Well some of us still use ICQ and if you happen to have it try to find the Chronicles, or if you can look on facebook the profile and pages are public, look up Jaden Rain or the page Dragon Bloodline. I will pop on n off most of today as its my day off I use CC so I am not sure how to advise how to use chat in game. With bulletin boards try double clicking it to see or use it.
    Both Jaden and Daeny are Dragon Masters however Jaden is more civilized and kind as for me I am called "Savage" by some within the RP world. I have also been known to ask the King to allow me to throw criminals into Destard to be eaten . I don't actually go look for trouble but Trouble seems to follow me like my Shadow. The Moonstone Crystals you see upon the porches of my homes and many around the Kingdom once double clicked give you a menu to travel within Eodan (but be careful it is wicked out there) Later tonight I should be at Shadowguard. However if during the early eve or daytime you wish Jaden can meet with you in Tokuno Zento or In Ter Mur at the guild hall or my home.
    Yours Truly,
    Daenyra

    Hello Daeny,

    Thanks for the information. I am not sure what form of communication CC is. I have found the Chronicles on FB and read some history. Ter Mue is quite new to me. I have a rune to the moongate so travel is no problem. I may try to travel there tonight to visit and look the land over.

    Remind me to stay on your good side *smiles*

    Til we meet

    By all means,

    Tell your dragons that I am a harmless soul and bear no ill will to the fair maidens of Ter Mur!
