I am Mumm ra .... I played Europa then GL for many years before heading over to siege. A great place to settle and you have all made me very welcome.
That's kinda like telling a Shark that it's ok to eat you, as long as it doesn't chew . . .Hiya everyone
Had to make my stratics name "eye" cause " I " wasn't long enough...
My in game toon name is " I ". Some of you have seen me around.
Planning to be a part of Siege, kill me but please don't loot me, haha
Check With @Captn Norrington, he might be able help with your old account . and welcome backHail Siege players!
I am a recently returning player after being gone for ~8 years or so. Where to start?
Shortly after the game came out I remember trying it but not sticking with it...I don’t know whether it was my poor dial up connection or lack of other friend playing but I just didn’t really get anywhere and stopped playing.
Fast forward to 2002: while on deployment I had a good friend who would tell me stories about his role playing guild in UO. Shortly after returning from our deployment, I started a new account and took my first footsteps in Cats as the aptly named “Guinnessmeister.” My friend and I spent countless hours online together exploring, hunting, and role playing within our guild, the Crusaders of Virtue (CoV). My good friend “Zapan” eventually left the realm and I took over his account to keep it active and became the new guild leader there (and still am to this day).
All told, I played on Cats for over 6 years but became less interested and more depressed as nearly all of the old guild members and many other friends in game had quit or became inactive. All of them but one, the very lovely and every friendly Sara Dale.
Sara finally talked me into starting a character on Siege and told me about this wonderful guild named Gilfane. I think it took one visit to Siege and I was excited about the game again!
Immediately after graduating NEW I became a postulant in GIL. I don’t remember my exact path but know there was some time spent with some Orc folk (?) and then after training up my character a bit I joined Calibretto in House Nemesis. Those were some pretty fun days being a defender of Gilfane! More change happened and I ended up joining House Silverwood after some time, where I remain to this day. My active time on Siege was between 2008-2011.
Like most of us, things for me began to change IRL (my family kept expanding, job changes, moving, etc.) that would affect my playing time and eventually I couldn’t justify keeping the multiple accounts I was juggling and, sadly, all was lost.
Every now and then I would get an itch to play but never checked back in, too afraid of the time required to start all over. Recently, when I heard about Endless Journey, I thought I’d at least log in and take a look around. To my surprise my GIL tag was still on and within the very first minutes of my re-entry into Sosaria (after 8 years) I saw a guild message from Sara Dale! I felt at home again.
My return has had its share of false starts. My old ICQ account with years of contacts had been deleted for inactivity; my Stratics account was gone; my gilfane forum profile was gone; all of my soul stones were lost; it took me quite some time to get Cart and UOA up and running again, and I still need to figure out Mumble and get the latest expansion. But despite all of these issues I am enjoying just being in game again, and although Siege does not seem as active as it was 8 years ago, I am rebuilding with the help of some very generous guild mates. And most of all, I enjoying my time doing it.
I will be forever grateful for those earlier years on Siege because (I did not know at the time) I got to play with some incredible folks including many Gilfane legends (now memorialized at the Gilfane Castle), and now look forward to spending time with other great players and for this to be my go-to game again whenever I have some free time to play.
(I am sure I will edit this later as memories come back and I remember names of particular players that I’d also like to mention!)
PS- I could use some template advice for a Bushido/Paladin with swords. PM me please!
Was a lowly Treasure Hunter here after Trevarlan coached me in the unique skill....I would like to believe that I kept THB on Siege alive for the years to come.Long ago, we had a Picture thread, but most Pictures are long gone and so are the players.
So who are we now?
I would like you all to tell a little about your self. Some may want to tell less than others. If you don't want to post a pic, it's ok. Don't be shy, a little note to show you are here is better than nothing.
Here is about me:
I have been on Siege sinse the shard was born, before that, I played on Atlantic and DF.
My oldest son came home with the game Dec 1997. Internet was only on my computer, so he knew he had to make me play to get access to the Internet.
That was easy to make me play, I loved the game from my first steps in it. I special loved the danger and risk, there was in the game pre Trammel and tamed the PK's I meet on my way or at least most of them ended up as friends
VS many others view on the game, I liked the challenge, when I saw a red name and had to be a little smart to survive in the game.
Chars: Freja (VvV), Tina Tink (Crafter), Rosalia (Crafter), Red Rose (house owner and tamer), Daemon (House owner, most played of a friend), ArcherGirl, (House owner, most played of a friend)
Freja was meant to be a nice social and helpful char. I had no idea she would end up as a red RP char, first as a Brigand Lady demanding gold and gems from travelers and later as a Vampire Lady, when she made her way from mortal slave to Undead Lady in the guild UDL The Undead Lords. She lost her red color, when people stopped traveling and hunting in her forest around Safe Haven.
Woody play 2 of my accounts, I meet him in Safe Haven 15 years ago, hopeful, we will soon see him back on his own account.
Guild: The DarkOutlaws, [TDO*]
I started TDO, The Dark Outlaws on Atlantic, took it with me to DF and them to Siege. I took it down a while, when I was UDL, SHC, JD but started it back up again.
Newbie care have always been a part of my guilds and my playstyle. First I took them in TDO, then I made a sister guild TDM, The Dark Merchants, who took in Crafters to help newbies we found around and added to TDM. Luxor of LOV started the first NEW guild at same time. He took it down in 2000, where we temperery had Power Hour instead of RoT'
I restarted NEW in 2002, Kelmo was one of my first Newbies. I had to take a break, when RL needed me and Shalimar took over NEW and did great for many years.
I restarted it once again as NEW2 some years ago, but had to take it down again as I only had few members after Adv. and Mystic Token started to work on Siege and players could place a second house on Siege.
Now we take in newbies in TDO if they fit the guild, the ones who don't fit, we will try to help in other ways.
Playstyle: PvP and crafting, not much PvM. I always loved what evil RP add to the game and I love helping with crafting and run vendors to serve the community.
Real life: Born 1955, from Denmark. I'm working with IT and Network. I have 2 grown up boys and 2 grand childs, a boy and a girl, almost 6 and 5 years.
I got a small house 7 years ago and love it, but I really should use more time on the house and less at playing. In 5 years, I will retire and hopeful get more time to both UO and my house and maybe a boyfriend too.
