For the last few weeks i have been tempted to reactivate my account and bring Raul out of his hide away and again terrorise Britannia. But truthfully a few things have stopped me doing this, these are as follows:

Is there anyone around outside the old hangout of Trinsic Gates? I mean those that remember me, will know i dislike scripted RP and immensely dislike plying my trade in towns.

Can the fluffy ones handle the way i do things? I do get the feeling that apart from the old school guys like Twoey and Paladis, that most of the guilds tend to favour the tea parties and would be upset if i did things like i used too.

Also last of all do you want Raul back?

Please answer truthfully and do not just feed me the same old RP spin.

Play the game for yourself, not because others want you to. I hate scripted role play as well. I dont mind an outline, with an open ending.

Just out of interest John, do ex-CoY guilds still shun powerscrolled characters? Also now that CoY is disbanded do you guys still keep your core rules like no powergaming and the love of pure warriors and the like?

Powerscrolled chars is not as frowned upon as it used too. And UD is currently discussing it's future on all those points (I'm trying to hold back to the old rules:P). And Grd they allow powerscrolls to be bought with their RP currency called copper which they earn from doing things like events patrols and posting stories and winning contests etc.

As far as I know powergaming is not allowed in Grd, still discussing it in UD as I said. Pure warriors is something that will stick around I think.

But the resist max rules that grd and ud has are being discussed (by ud not by grd). But like I said, I like the old so I'm trying to convince people that it should remain so.

er.. hope I answered your question? :P

Forget/Ignore the whiners and play Raul as was always intended.

Its not just me but the whole of A^K enjoyed the interaction with Raul (including Cal).Raul and Clw were one of the few guilds that spontaneously livened up what often ended up being yet another boring night in UO.

Just my two cents worth.

Born to be Grumpy so get used to it

I would say , go ahead and try it again.
Bandit guilds and pirate guilds have a hard time staying around all year long (i dont know why but its always been like that) but when they are around they are very much liked.

And pester Vesper , Cove , Jhelom and Yew and you will have things to do forever.
There really is like.. 3% difference between the rulesets so that shouldnt be a problem.

Mate your rp was always fun and off the cuff as they say.

The question is why do you keep wanting to come back to UO.

You should just have never left :)

Raul, I`ve tried several times, being deceived most of the times, but still coming in back because at least there was always a little plus everytime I return and more encouragement to persevere.

Although we havent talk a lot each other Raul still rings as the Crimson`s era to me. That was a time actual bandits were tempted to be realistically rped. So if you got something in your mind, give it a try.

The chance to RP with people like Paladis, Twothumb, Decardo Imier and the rest of you guys Ian. People my own age (or close) and mindset. To be honest im tired of the pixel crack and way the new MMORPG's are all being fashioned to appease the l33t roxxor PvP kiddies and us RPers are slowly being pushed out of them. Hell most cannot even string a sentence together anymore without using a (rofl) or a (lol).

This is why i keep trying to return, in the hope UO can give me what i want from a MMORPG. I would love to reform my old gang and get back to business, i do have lots of idea's. But as i said i am very dubious to wether to bother to be honest, i mean for it to work i need people and victims really. I also worry about Raul, he is a very old school warrior now and may not cut it anymore in the samurai/necro/whatever template era and i wont change him for the world :)

Raul there are still some of us around who do NOT accept samurai/necro/bushido in their guild.

Aslo,you already have A^K,Vesper KH Boc,Vtc Jhelom and others in the North who I [and you know] perfectly well will RP with your bandits a' la CLaw stylee .
As Decardo said,you keep coming back, even tho you have never left.
Guilding characters here and there yet never really taking part enough to really see what goes on with those guuilds.

Id say get in game,PLAY one of your alts and get your answer through your own gametime :)

You will see for yourself that these past months when we have argued with you on forums that RP is NOT dead that it truly isnt ,you just have to be there to see it for yourself.

[or are you just worried Tabbs might finally kick Raul's sorry butt :P ]

Is it worth it?

Thats up to you to decide (after you try that is)

Personally I would LOVE to hear stories of Raul again.
My Main character has only ever heard of Raul the Brigand who terrorized manny a man woman and child. A terrible Bedtime story told to little children to keep them close to home.

Making Sosaria Beautiful one home at a time.
