I started in 98. I thought the coolest thing about the game was that, every time someone killed me and I logged off in disgust, I could log in the next day and be alive again with all my inventory.

Reverts, baby.

I totally forgot that GExplodes used to chain react. They should bring that back in some form - very flavorful.

LOL I logged back on with murder counts when brit GY server wars were huge. :laugh:

[EDIT- one time a counselor account got hacked and jailed everyone there. someone had the wise idea to cast EV next to me. Nice...]

Brit GY was so much of a better fighting grounds than Yew Gate; no way for people to instantly disappear, they had to actually run one way or the other.

Can you imagine the chaos if Felucca moongates went by the old moongate timers? LOL I miss having to use a spyglass sometimes, used to need em to tell when to go through the public gate, otherwise you'd end up at Buccs den instead of Moonglow.

I remember the days of the *Fred=Bob* wars at brit gy..my first house ..on fire isle, was a small tower..man was I proud of it! Dredging up enough gold with my friends to buy a guild stone deed! Getting those silver kats and vanq weaps outta khaldun with out being PK'd was awesome! Having something ..hat..boots..with invis on them was a must do. Picking up everyones left overs around the banks! Hiding in the back room of Brit bank with your bank open, when two people were in there doing trades, they'd drop the boards, ingots, whatever..and hear them say as you slunk awayafter stashing what you grabbed.... * did you get them?* NO.!!* You SURE you didn't get them? I dropped them for you*.. Those were the days! Just Fel and Tram..grandfathered houses...Moonglow and Brit were the banks to be at! Everyone wanted a house in 'Glow. Good memories !

This is one of the reasons I still play this game... Listening to all the old stories people have from way back in the day it brings back good memories of times long gone. I am not saying they are all gone but the game I started to play and the game I play today have changed so much some for the good and some for the bad imo. back when I played on LS many years ago there was a guy named a chicken that would run around as a chicken and get people to attack him I didn't like him then I came back to UO about 2 years ago and I joined his guild didn't know it was him and me and him became friends then we had a fallout but it is good to meet people in the game. I have gained respect for people over the years and lost respect for people over the years and even if I don’t like some people I respect them sometimes. I have had many friends in this game that I wish I could have kept in contact with over the years but I have always kept in contact with my oldest of friends in the game mostly the ones that I came to UO with from Diablo. When I get back from my deployment I wouldn’t mind PvPing, hunting, IDOCing, RP even if I have never don’t that before but I will try it if anyone wants to.

i first starting playing UO oo many years ago when UO:R came out.... one of my best friends was showing me many different things about the game taming a timberwolf and fighting with it... i was so excited that my friend had found a new game for us to play (getting sick of Lineage 1, for anyone who played it) ... my first character i made was a tamer.. which i still have to this day.. (even tho i left for a few years shortly after AoS came out.. still upset over pub 16 like many were. at the time.. but i must say i do like the changes now...)

But ANYWAY :P when i first starting brit cem was the place to hunt i remember not being able to find a monster to attack because so many ppl were there... and as i've read from so many others Brit Bank... o the fun... to the getting scamed because i was a noob to trying to scam cause i was dumb :P and jealouse and upset at the other people that did it (needless to say i felt to guilty if i succeeded and gave the item/money back.. i know i know but hey thats who i am) i do miss those days when so many people played... Farming Shame earth eles for money :P making my first mil .. then buying my first house (small stone tower i think it was called idk) the days of being able to have 3 dragons as pets :D ... and i wont start in with first trip to fel :P

i miss the days of brit bank and seeing the many many people that hung out there... brit smith too

just a little of my story i suppose

I liked it when passwords would save even if people got hacked that way. People telling people that there uoconfig file went bad and asked people to send them that file. My friend did that to some people.

Wow, I remember going through the sewers in Brit and entering the new land, fighting giant frogs. That is my first real memory of UO. That and all the tents people had!

I miss the tents! And the old housing system. Very annoying to have your house key stolen, tho! Carelessness really did hurt, heh

I think they got rid of tents because it was such a poor design, had no foundation, no door and was anticipating you'd adventure somewhere for a few days or hours very far away. All the same, I've read/seen stuff saying the original Felucca map was only 1/4th the initially intended size of the game at release but they just ran out of time to get it all done.

When I first played UO the cloth map was still around. I made my first char on a slot I borrowed from a friend, a blacksmith-tamer!

No door is a major minus, yep, but they were so cheap. Just a chest in the woods, but I liked the look! Now, with the private housing system, and the ability to place a forge and an anvil, they would be sweet. I've tried to make something resembling a tent with the new house editor, but it just looks awful.

So they rushed it out half - done, just like Ultima 8? Sad, we really needed the space

Just came back to UO after many years off and found a bunch of them in my bankbox. Do they still work, or just something I should put away for posterity?

Reading this thread is really funny. Most of the funny stuff I remember has already been mentioned .....

except the first permaban / ultimate code cheat ...... the mythical portable forge ... and boat mining with it using UOLoop :D
