Returning to Ultima Online - Atlantic Unassisted Journey

Hi All,

So after many years away from UO I've decided to come back.

My thought was to come back to the game, start on a brand new account, and try to work my way up to end game content without accepting help from any other players. I've set a rule for myself that anything I buy or sell must be at prices dictated by the market, I cannot accept donations or generous buy/sell conditions. The idea is basically that I want to prove that by learning the game as it is today, you can be successful starting from scratch and that the inflated economy is a challenge that can be overcome. As far as group content is concerned, I'm only allowing myself to join in on formal group content when I feel my skills/equipment allow me to adequately contribute to the effort; I cannot get carried by others.

I've been spending a lot of time doing weekly videos on my journey, we're up to 7 videos total. Perhaps a few of you might enjoy the content, so here is a link to the playlist of weekly videos:

I will say the videos get better as they go on, this was literally my first ever attempt at doing any sort of video editing...

See you out there!

Nice. A great little series. I also like to restart on a new shard and build a character from scratch without assistance.
Haven't really played for a few years now, so I also learned a few little tips from your videos - need to look into the high seas content I can see!
 
The High Seas stuff was a blast, I kinda wanna keep going back to it.

I've been thinking it might be fun to do speedrun challenges. Like, speedrun to 90 taming, or start on a random server speedrun to first expensive 120 powerscroll.

Starting from scratch has been a really fun way to get back into this game, way more fun than I anticipated.
