Welcome to UOForums :)

Many players choose their home shard based on where they live in real life because of the 'ping' advantages ...
(have no idea what that means other than receiving information faster from the server chosen)

So perhaps the first thing would be to let us know where ya are in real life :)

Welcome to UOForums and UO ttom46.

Age has no relevance in UO ,you can be any age you want :)

Here is a list of shard specific guilds that use UOForums.

Hope you find a welcoming home :)

I am also 60. On my present main shard of Catskills is guild named Senior Citizens of Britannia (SCB). Some of its members are older than we and a few are younger (a little). There are a number of guilds on Cats that I know have some good and helpful members such as GRI (Gentle Rest Inn) and others.

Grog rule #1: Have fun.

Welcome Tom! As Rascal and Vepl said, Lake Austin is home to the UO Forums guild. And I see that out other main reps have rogered up their shards as well.

Remember, the commitment to a guild is non binding, and you can choose to leave for people more your play style.

I think the average age in this forum is 30 (ish). So all (mostly) mature.

I live in the NE corner..so was curious :)

Can't be of much help on Catskill. There are a few peeps here that play on Catskill so you should get some good advice and help.

Welcome to the forums! And welcome back to UO!
If you have a new char, why not go and hang out in New Haven for a while? You can do the newbie quests and get a few interesting items. It would help you get back in the game, and some of the armor is nice, especially for a new player.
