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.

Most shards have at least some degree of roleplay. I'm only familiar with Europa's scene, though it's still very much active on Atlantic, Chesapeake, Baja, Pacific, and Catskills if I'm not mistaken. All offer slightly different things, though there's no wrong choice. If you list what you're looking for I'm sure people will leap to win you over.

Humans, Elves, and Gargoyles are the playable races. Though people often roleplay Dwarves, Gnomes, Orcs, Drow etc. I even recall someone playing as a mongbat a few years ago. Elves can now be chosen on character creation. Not sure Gargoyles are available yet, as that add-on is VERY new.

There are no mods or add-ons in UO, I'm afraid. There are freeshards with plenty of player-made content, though that's something of a taboo as it isn't technically legal.

Europa is by far in the lead, but Bogling is correct, it does exist on most shards.

I know of guilds from Europa, Chesapeake, and Pacific that RP and have forums here at UOF.

Thank you for all the help.

Coincidentally, I get very good latency on Europa, so that will be where I will try to make my home. :new_color_:

Welcome.

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 expansion.


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.
