UO Stories

Anonymous #1

  • When I first played UO I had no idea what to do or how any of the skills worked. So I made a bard, and I’d just travel around looking for people to explore with. I couldn’t fight anything beyond the weakest animals, so instead I’d offer to write an epic poem about their adventures in exchange for a portion of the loot. I’d write in-game books, which I’d still find in player houses (and libraries that players made!) for years after. Bought my first house this way, before I even knew how to actually play.
  • I miss that game so much. They turned it into a completely generic, loot-based game and outside of a few role-playing groups it just became a boring mess.
