Europa is definitly good for RP its the main reason i still play UO. That and being around to help younger characters.

The main problem nowadays is the landmass is getting bigger and bigger spreading the RP community out. Nowadays the trend seems to be for many to RP away from the major gathering points.

I agree with the point mentioned above some have way to many RP alts, putting all their characters into the same guild or into many. This i think tends to dilute personality wise their main characters down as they have watered down histories and such like. Playing an RP character is about playing an almost actual figure in the realm they create and that takes time. Something thats hard to do unless you spend way too many hours in the game.

Some even rp with themselves.

I'm in the US, but moved to Europa specifically for the RP. The time zone thing is sometimes annoying, but I just suck it up. On the bright side, once everyone on the shard has gone to bed, I can go have free run of whatever spawn I like. Heh.

I intend on RPing. So if you all are still active on Siege then I hope to see you there.

Thank

I have to agree, I am central time zone, but Europa is established so thats where I am. Sometimes I am grumpy at work when I go in on night shift because I got up at 2pm instead of 5pm but to me its worth it.

It never ceases to amaze me how many people outside of the RP circle will RP with you on Europa. Just not that many "get a life" ers on Europa.

In CORE, its not about the equipment, its not about the template, its about the story. If you want to establish a history for your character, surrounded by people that will appreciate it, Europa is a good place.

If it sounds like I am giving a plug to Europa, I am. I looked for serious RPing and after three years on Siege(those guys are still close to my heart) and a few months on Great Lakes, this is where I ended up. Europa is special.

You only have to look around moongates to find recruitment books for many RP guilds. Faiiling that the rp groups on this forum all have sign up posts.

Hehe, its a fact that no shard can really compare to Europa for roleplaying. Other shards communities have risen and fallen, but the RP scene on Europa has been together since the beginning I say! And still going on. Since I'm obviously plugging Europa here, I'll plug Vesper as well. We're a medium sized guild (one of something in the range of 30-40 interacting RP guilds on Europa) and welcoming new folks ;)

There are those that are smaller than us, and those that are three or more times our size on average. But we're still gettin' by. Thats just a snap of some Militia making a patrol around Covetous to check for pesky Covian miners that might be stealing our mountains minerals.

Europa is great for playing serfdoms and fiefdoms, but scripts get old, you have to step out of character to kill some monster. Spontaenous role play is something all shards are lacking.

Well Maddux, you may have a point there, and that's something I noticed when I started, so I'm trying to RP the way you say, ie the world we live in is the world we live in.
So Europa is the best for me. For now.

Everyone has a best shard. It just takes some finding is all.

Now you're absolutly right. Again.
So instead of having talks about where's the best shard, we should be pointing out what you can find in each shard, and then, someone new would have a better idea of where to find what he/she was looking for.

I agree with you Orlando. As role players, we should be attracting others to role play in general instead of bickering which is the best shard. The truth be told, where ever role play is, that is a better shard.
