John and Medea, I never met you in-game, but I was your neigbour a few years ago - and often visited your houses - I even remember the book you mentioned with the names in it. It was actually the first time I heard about the Bloodguard :). Hope to see you back again soon!

Arradin, come back you too! Then you won´t have to miss UO anymore ;).

Good to know we weren't forgotten completely :). I've been trying to install the game but the stupid home hub keeps disconnecting me :(..will get there eventually though..can't wait to see what's changed ! WOW was fun..and very absorbing but did not have the same community spirit that UO had and seems to still have. Can't abandon it totally though as we're gm's of a guild with 270 members..and love them all :).. Still excited :p

I miss UO.

Seeing all these old people and hearing old names almost bring a tear in the eye :)
Hi :) I still have the castle that Belana designed mostly it's been kept the same in her memory. The wedding ring from her is on the display as well on the first floor.

Who is/was she? This place is great!
Belana and Arradin were part of our guild which was started when Europa was created. We had a guild called GOS (guardians of the sacred stone). at the peak we had over 75 members from all over the world. Along with dungeon crawls hunting PKers namely the best like sheep dog we all had a great time. We also did some role playing and such they were the best of time for me in UO. This was all pre trammel back then.

Belana sadly past away, but she always had the knack for making display's out of the most simple of things. Such as the aquarium, hot tub and flower arrangements out of wood and yarn etc. She will always be remembered as a very kind, generous and enjoyable player to be around. The castle serves in her memmory.


Arra my brother has pics of the wedding and I believe other events that we had so hopefully when he gets back from vacation, I'll ask him to post them on this page. BTW the ring was moved to the second floor in the bedroom, sadly when she had the rings made it just has the person who recieved the ring. So mine just says Riply on it along with the date of the event.

hope all is well with him :(

Seeing that list of names really brought back memories *sighs*.

I've been in contact with Lady Breigh since then and as far as I know, she tries various MMOs once in a while but isn't really hooked on any at the moment and is enjoying real life to the fullest.

I have recently been in contact with Lemo as well through Facebook but I don't know if he's playing anything currently, I'll however post this link on his and Lady Breigh's wall as well.

Got a nice letter from Orangebeard around a year ago but also don't know whether he plays anything now. I've sent him a notification of this thread also.

I've kept my accounts open all these years (although I did shut down three out of five, leaving just two open - one for me, one for my sons :) but admittedly I spend more time in WoW where I run a guild called The Elders for adult players on a roleplaying server. UO is always in my heart though and it's first place as the game which has given me the richest MMO experiences, remains. My older son however plays it still very actively and now that he's starting to come of age and his UO interests have matured, we might start doing some fun things together. :)

Hey!! Who knows what my old username and password for this place is, but Hiya!

I am well, played DAoC for a bit then GW, has a go on STO but it was rubbish, not really playing any MMO's these days.

I hope everyone is well who still is, I imagine everything is very different now and hardly anyone from the old days is still about?

And she said any old friends from her old UO days are free to add her on Facebook as well. (Tammy Canavan-Soldaat).

Of course, how could I forget! :) Your beautiful house was just south of Trinsic at the time, wasn't it? Hehe oh is that how we met? Cute! Some of the nicest people I've met through ressing them in games. Me and a guy I ressed in DaoC one time fell for one another! (passionate yet short MMO romance) Just goes to show ressing people leaves an impact!

Hail! Ky Wild checking in.

It's many years since I posted here, but I do lurk from time to time and just noticed this thread. Enjoyed reading it and seeing some familar names, and I now feel quite nostalgic :)

I have mixed feelings about my time playing UO (2000-2003 I think). I was totally sucked into it during a difficult time in my life, and in some ways I was unhealthily addicted. However, it was a wonderful thing to be addicted to and I have many, many fond memories from playing the game and the INCREDIBLE community that existed on Europa. I hope that the community is still as rich and absorbing for those who play now.

I hope everyone is doing well. If anyone would like to contact me: I use facebook (search for me using email [email protected]). Be good to catch up!

All the best,
Ky

Well I saw this thread and had to post something. I wonder if anyone remembers me :).

It's been a while since I visited these forums. I tried to reactivate my old account name when Laton sadly passed away but someone else had taken my name it would appear in the server swop over. I hope those of you still playing from when I played UO are well /waves at Barian and Petra and that you have as many fond and sad memories as I do of Ultima Online.

I currently run a fairly successful WoW Guild, with quite a few ex GYE and DCL - Guardians of Yew and The Darkcloaks members on Aerie Peak EU called - The Grey Council as one of the surviving members of Calador's family - Barathorn.

I am hoping I guess to get back in touch with people via this thread, so Seriya and Val, if you are reading, get in touch!

Good to see Stratics thriving, I enjoyed my time as a reporter here.

Take care all, as ever I peddle stories and hope some of you carried on in my footsteps when I left for new shores.

As ever, your friend,

That's a familiar name, possibly so long ago I may be mistaken but "hi" if not :)

Some things are different but many remain the same, thankfully. A surprising number of old names springing up .. who knows what will happen next ...

Oh, this thread is already 6 month old, but whatever. Good to hear people are doing fine. Hi Tammy, Hi Jon (hope I remember the names right) :) Probably noone else from the old NbN crowd around ?

Unfortunately, UO seems to be nothing but a shadow of it's former self, but it was and probably still is the best MMORPG in terms of depth and the community behind it. Actually a community that deserves to be called one, compared to what other games, especially WoW offer today, even though there were jerks in UO as well, of course.

Fond memories, sometimes I even feel the urge to log into UO. If there were only more decent people playing it, who actually turned UO into what it used to be for a lot of us ...

Oh well, back to work :-/

A late happy new year to everyone and good luck :)

Ahaha I sensed a disturbance in the force - thought someone was talking about me! I havent visited here in yeaaaaaars - and its been even longer since I played! That was a real nostalgia trip, most of the names mentioned in Trevs list were my 'era' so to speak. Thanks for all the warm fuzzy memories - its genuinely nice to see so many of you are still around and active.

hehe Piourk and Tarmon is a lot of remembers to me. Piourk for being the very nice GM of ELR, and French (thus being ELR and French like me at some point of the game), and T'armon for always dieing to my 5 dragons and mare (and being the first Red I every killed). Good ole times.

Ky Wild as far as I recall you were also in ELR right?

Other people I d like to have news from:
People from Eden, specifically link,moiraine and Araya/Bocelli.
Old friends from 999 (Phil, Slamdar and the others).
Old friends from EaT, like Marie Luna, Peshkar, my greek friend whose name I forgot :)(()
Other friends, Lady Agnes, Lady esmeralda (Zagor, Zagor Tenay...), Lady Nadia (even though I see him blinking on skype every so and then) and his devilish friends whose name I forgot.
People from Del or DDI which I was not really friend with, like hatchett harry (I owned a house on a slot occupied by the HH castle...)
People haunting Khaldun, like Vengeance *ohohoh santa klaus* or Az.
Enemies from O/C guilds that I really, physically hated :))
Many names I forgot, but I really remember, if you come by just say hi!


Some people mentioned about ipslore and shazam, they both been in game lately.

Must stop my occasional peek at the posts here or I may have to resub again, So many good memories from UO, cant believe its been over 12 years since I was running around Yew wondering what the hell these strange folks (rper's) were doing near the orc fort whilst hiding from reds.Then joined Yews very own boys in blue FRY where I met Reti (GM) and Cal/Dain, being killed by pk's at yew graveyard was great fun although I think we may have done some hiding in the guildhouse on occasion :)
Nice to see some names here I remember, and sad to see so many gone from UO.
As well as players I also wonder what happened to places like Deepwater as these places were another brilliant part of the game that I've never found in another mainstream mmo :)
Anyway must resist the pull of that old revolving door, must resi............

Does anyone of you remember what happened to Feersum Endjin? I think he switched to some of the old ELR chaps at some point.

Him and me had that small stone tower next to the gate for a year..but he suddenly changed playing grounds, then dissapeared.
My characters wore so deeply in the red zone back then, which he never switched to.

I have to say, one of the most memorable persons I've encountered ingame (tho that was abit of the newer age) was Tam Seeka. Sadly she passed away very sudden IRL somewhere in 2003 or 04 I think.

Zofinur wasnt exactly innocent tho... He officialy claimed he never did anything wrong, but along with quite a few of the older uo auction team who passed quite alot of duped items, he basicly got nicked.

Same about another one, called himself Mandrake... (He had a RP style name char also, but I cant remember it) Which claimed to be one of the good guys selling quite alot of UO gold on ebay, suddenly got banned also.
In his case the accusations wore selling hacked accounts and various ingame abuse to get to the gold.
I know of atleast 2 guys who bought accounts from him that was suddenly siezed by osi and returned to they'r original owners.
Weather this was an ebay hoax by the buyers or actually Mandrakes fault can't really be proven. (as this is even today a common ebay hoax, used alot to scam WoW accounts nowdays)

Edit: Suddenly came to me... Mandrake aka Brian Hood

A welcome back party? You'll have to prove you've actually changed your ways before I'll be pleased to see you return.

At least you admit your mistakes and show some regret. That's a good start.

No, it's way too early for a party but a second chance you can have :scholar:

He was deeply hurt by the ban i have pm's from a friend of his that said so much went wrong, so i do NOT believe you, and certainly not with a simple statement like that

Zof that i know,knew would not even waste time with such a statement as he was always convinced of his innocence

sounds like you are a questionable person who is hoping to use him name to scam mislead people out of their goodwill etc

I still keep thinking of coming back, even after years of other MMOs. None of them make fishing as much fun as UO used to. :)

Glad to see Kas Valentine is still slacking...

Started coming to Stratics pre-Trammel and we even got told to 'shut up for a while' at one point for babbling too much *coughs* as the old PWG were notorious for that sort of thing.

Funnily enough, we still keep in touch on Facebook, unlike many guildies from other games who you never hear from again.

Unfortunately its been sad to see that some old friends have actually not only left but past away.

Lady Belana RIP - if anyone can PM me and let me know what happened would be much appreciated. She was someone i spoke to alot in game and was such a lovley person, really is such a massive shame, very very sad to hear.
