I am an experienced roleplayer, who has played many MMOs -- Except UO. I just opened an account (Last night) and I could use some help with the following questions:
- Is there something like an unofficial RP shard, if so which one is it?
- What races are actually available? (I only have 2 on my account)
- How to I get access to the other races? (please be specific)
- I'm used to WoW, are there any mods or addons for roleplayers?
- If so, where do I get them and how would I install?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
1. No, with the possible exception of Europa. Europa has a particular style of RP and a particular, specific rules set they expect their RPers to follow. It works very well for them, and it has emerged from the shared understandings of RPers on that shard. Attempts to transplant their systems to other shards usually seem to fail.
I am greatly enjoying the RP on the Great Lakes shard. I'm told Atlantic is active too.
2. Human, Elf, and Gargoyle. For the latter you have to have bought the most recent expansion.
3. For the third race, purchase the recent Stygian Abyss
4. Hmm. No, I don't think so, unless there's something for the "Enhanced Client," which is modd-able. I play the "Classic Client."
5. No idea.
Again, welcome aboard.
