What happened to.. (various Europa players)

If you are any of these people, or know of them, i'd be interested in hearing from you
That would be me ... and as someone already wrote, I am still in WoW.
A bit less on "Argent Dawn" and a bit more on "Draenor" these days, yet not sure for how long,
as one reason what made UO so great (its players and especially its socialisation) is beeing driven
away in WoW more and more and replaced by tools to find random people you'll never meat again

What of Zole and Shaunboy? Or Richard D James? Any news from them?
Pretty sure that you can find Zole here: http://griefed.net/forum/
Only know that he has been (or even still is ?) in Japan for quite some time.


Aswell there are a few people I'd at least like to send a "hello" to, who got out of my sight:
- Lord Ulysses
if anyone is still in contact with him, please give him a hug from me (from "Lord Iron Chew")
- all Spiritwood and fellow RPers (from the last seen "Oymak Batachikan" in UO)
- Scratchy
a very clever and extremely creative thief with a bit weird way of speeking :p

Chew

P.S.: I am incredible bad with names ... really extremely bad, so all I seem to have forgotten by name,
I only have forgotten the name - i.e. I am pretty sure that I knew "Lemo" ingame, as that drawing rings a bell,
but the name doesnt do so o_O

o_O

Last I heard he moved here, to Norway really. I wish I knew his full real name so I could contact him. Not to reawaken the odd late strip nights he used to do in his small tower, but still :p
I didnt see you ingame til much later, at the brit forges...

but its odd to see a name, a guild, or whatever, setting off the memory strings to what used to be uo. I guess thats what still keeps me coming back here. The first couple of years in UO i spent walking....and being killed by pk's :p the early 2000's was the highlight of my UO gaming really. And I miss stuff like the server down wars, Oak "town/city" thing, bone wall at powerhour, shame hunting for gold, the old style weps and the thrill everytime one of them dropped, old style faction raiding in brit and lost lands when I was in Minax with DDi, and later after i got hacked and had to make a new tamer i joined up with ERC and meister propper. And also the guild "Legion of Darkness".... And even later, when the moongates apeared and me and Feersum Endjiin had that small tower at yew... Lot of good people came and went. Dont know what changed the most really...me or UO, but the game certainly went down the drain and every time I log on..I wish it could all come back. And all my old ICQ contacts could be online again.... that section of the list thats always has a red flower... :p

And ther's so many names I've forgotten....

Hi Chewy,
you wrote you are bad with names... here are Greetings from the Gotowork/Gotobed/Jasmina Family. Your long time neighbour near Britain. .it's a long long time.. but I hope you remember...It's a pity that you are still stuck in WOW. I Just returned to UO and placed a house right on the Tower of Roses Spot :) So in case you change your mind. Everything is set for a full return ;-)

How could I forget one of the first "faces" I've meat in UO !
How are you doing ?
But no, returning to UO is a big "no-go" for me, especially as long as EA holds all (well, now "most") rights, as I've sworn that this company will not get any penny from me ever again.
Btw, i am still in contact with "Jenny" - the very first person I've meat in this game, who grabed my hand and told me the 101 in surviving in the woods...

Thanks for the e-mail Kas, will try it out !

Hi :)
i can understand what you said about EA. It's really not the company which should run such a game...Wirh Jenny I had a chat yesterday. I hope she send you my greetings. And same for me she also taugt me the 101 , but i still only know like 20% of it ;-) maybe we meet in Shroud of the avatar. That would be fun!
btw my icq is still the same...

Hello,
Valfreyja here.
Great reading about so many good online friends from the past.
All's well here in Denmark.
When I left UO I played a bit Horizons with Saro and after that WoW untill recently.
Atm I dabble mostly in Auction games in WoW but I'm not very active - just hoarding my gold.
I'm stille with my husband Macfadder/Christian(who would have thought that hehe) and have 2 kids. My oldest on 11 can't be pried away from the computer but who can really blame him with those parents.

Signing out again with some funny little screenshots which might bring back some memories for some of you.

This reminds me of an event held in Spiritwood before it moved to Trammel which was a boxing match/fight like thing on a roof. I think it was part of a festival of sorts and we had all sorts of pks rushing in to the town. We [I say we but I wasnt actually that involved] kept them out and kept the event running fine. Happy days.

Hi all,

I know it is a bit of a thread necro but after we all took so long to find each other again in this thread it seems silly not to stay in touch. I managed to lose my log in again so had to set a new one up.

This year I have dabbled with Archeage and Final Fantasy but in truth nothing had the pull UO had other than WOW and the community in UO was always what made it special. Lets hope the new Elite game gets a few of us together again.

Just wanted to wish all players old and new a very happy Christmas and holiday season.

Be well and be safe.

Dain.

Some "old" ppl are still around and we lately saw a nice bunch of returning ppl along with new names...
Lord Ulysses officially retired a few years ago but RAA guild is still alive !!

Maybe we ll have the surprise to see you around ?

Take care,

Hello All!
I don't even know were to begin this post but yes it really is me !
I was just doing a little surfing this evening and decide to see if Ultima Online was still going strong and much to my surprise it is still thriving on Europa ! and then I stumbled across this thread which by the looks of it began four years ago!!
I want to send lots of love and hugs especially to Lien and Molly ! hugsss! send me a pm !
Chew ! yes im still alive! SLAP!
Lady Drax ! hugs !
Kas you extreme slacker!
Tobyone! wow! how you doing my friend?
Scenic Nevins! you old dog!
Trev!!!
Arradin!
and to everyone else I cant believe your all still here and going strong apologies if I have missed anyone :)

I stopped playing UO many many years ago around the time I began dating this amazing woman from Norway who changed my life completely and without going into too many boring details as it would end up taking an entire evening I ended up moving to Norway from the UK permanently around the summer of 2009 ! It hasn't been an easy ride moving to a foreign country and starting a new life and there were ALOT of ups and downs, and tough times but things have been going very well the last couple of years.
We were married last summer and are expecting our first child in er 7 days! ! sooo its been a huge lifestyle change for me and online gaming just didn't fit into my life anymore.
I don't play any games online these days as I just don't have the time anymore due to life, work, i am a Personal Trainer / Physiotherapist and with a wife and alittle baby girl on the way and besides all of that I could never in my wildest dreams find another game to play which has the sense of community and enjoyment that UO has it was an amazing game for me at the time and the sense of community on Europa was something which I have never experienced in any other online game and the friends I made playing UO.

I hope this post finds you all well and God Bless !

P.S
Feel free to send me a PM as I will check back now and again to see how you are all doing

I just got notified by email (attached to my Stratics-account) that a stranger claimed to know me !!!
Really awkward when some imposter messing around with you.

Ok, irony aside ....
Got a PM from Ulysses, saying Hi and telling:
"Im not sure how I can prove its really me so ask me something only me and you would know"
Answer is soo very easy - he SLAPED me ... again !
As this is what he/we did often at Brit-Forge

Hail my old friend Uly!
Really happy to hear the news of you becoming a Dady.
I am very sure that you will be a very good one, so dont worry (if you slightly should).
Am packing my stuff already for xmas (not celebrating at home this year), so am a bit in a hurry,
but as you'll be busy the next weeks anyway .... *grins*
PM-ing you next year!
All the best for you, your wife and ofc your daughter ! :)


Lien Ragus
You joined RAA when I was already slowly passing out of UO or is
Lien Ragus = TobyOne ??
Hit me ... might be mixing up something here - why the heck am i so bad with names ?!?

... anyway:
Merry Christmas and a great 2015 to all of you !


P.S.:
The email-notification from Uly (from Stratics) ended up in my Spam-folder ... LOL
MWUHAHAHAHA !

I still have a pie locked down in my kitchen Chews cook Paul Bocouse gave me , Uly got one too, at the forge! So I remember you .
 
Spam folder!!!! your asking for another slap! muahahahah! :twak:

Glad you got the message my friend have a wonderful Christmas and New Years with all your friends and family.

Holy Moly! I nearly fell out of my chair reading not one, but two replies from ol' "Tin Man" Topknot himself! Really good to hear that things are going great for you! It's amazing to think of all the things that have been going on over the years, and that things still bring so many old names back into this forum...
I was thinking the other day about all the times you told me off for not keeping my vendors stocked properly in the old small tower, hard taskmaster! Hope you go a little easier on your clients these days :) You're still on my ICQ, along with so many other names that haven't been seen in ages.
But thought I'd share this to show you're all still around :)

The old forge is certainly still dead but you will now find one right outside the bank. Daily meetings there every day between 6pm and 7pm Welcome Back.

It's been a LONG time. But I'm back :)

Used to play Tarenessa & Jennifer back in the old Trinsic rp days. I remember Sally Buttons, Irvyn, Zed and the Judges and many others. Been away playing WOW, SWTOR and many other games and got bored of them all. So I'm back and looking to get back into the RP on Europa. Hopefully you'll be patient with me as I've no idea what's been going on, heck I was at three events so far and even one where Blackthorn was king :lame: :p. He'll always be evil to me :hahaha:. So if there's an RP guild or group willling to take an old school player who's been on hiatus since 2006-2007 then I'll be there.

Other than that, hello and see you in Sosaria ;)

Hi Tarenessa - Callum here. Not many role players left other than maybe a few at the Swaggers Inn and a few around Trinsic - Iljian and Aryala. Sadly Miss Buttons passed away in real life last year and from what I can tell 99% of the role play communites from ERPA, CoRE and CoY are now long gone. I remember you well in your various incarnations. I log in very occasionally but for me UO is pretty much a dead game filled with the ghosts of happy memories. There is a FB group of Ex-UO RPers such as Seriya, Cal Soulthingy, Ra Karn, Kara and more if you are interested. But even that is pretty much a dead group. Anyhow UO is still here and it still is a great game and if they seriously made it free to play then there may be a chance to build a community.
 

Tarenessa

Visitor
Hey Callum. I remember you too in the days of ERPA, CoRE and CoY. I can't believe Sally passed away. I'm shocked and saddened by that news. Sally was one of the first people I met in the RP community when I moved from Felucca to Trammel. I still have a few items made by her which have been priceless to me for a long time, even more so. I still talk with RaKarn, Mellisante and some others but I dont know anyone who still plays from back then.

/waves to all, passing through, catching up, hoping everyone is well.

I don't think there will ever be another UO for me. I think that someday I might even return. Have no idea about characters though, I expect they are long gone.

long shot... but this player randomly popped in to my head today after 15+ years. I can't remember exactly but I believe his name was Sir Camelot or King Arthur or a variation of the sort. He used to run a guild that hosted Knights of the Round Table meetings (or maybe that was the guild name) and their house was a log cabin in Trammel in the jungle below Trinsic (see pic) if I am remembering at all correctly. He was battling some illnesses at the time and I really hope he was able to recover!

Wow , wow , wow....... This thread gave me the chills. I got back in game in February 2018. And LOOOVE LOVE LOVE it again. I miss a lot of my old friends still. Some will ofc never be back but many of you could take a peek as the Endless Journey is active now. Although they are still making it happen in Account management but it will be fixed.
Arradin moved back to Europa. I got Vicious from G*D guild playing again and we do our best to get some old friends to take a peek in UO again. Its still worth it.
Lady Eden !!! i know you are watching ;-) come xxxxxxx

my icq is 12385867 if you want to contact me ;-)

Well found the endless journey email and found both my accounts (alas the same could not be said for my stratics account) and have little clue what was going on or even what half the stuff I had was for, only really remember stuff from around 1999 to 2002 :( so basically just going around Britain begging with my one unused alt Steptoe. Begging still seems really hard :)
2 of my characters have a cleric beast on all fours mount which I have yet to identify and could not even remember changing my guild name <sigh> ( though I do remember the FRY guildstone ending up in someone else's house after my first long break from the game :( Did find most of my old lord Uly armour set though.
Anyway enough rambling , probably spend some time messing about in UO again though not being to get stuff out of my overflowing bank vaults is rather annoying and boy is there a lot of confusing stuff.

Oh and has Barian left ? always thought he'd be here at lights out
