So I started playing Ultima Online on OSI Great Lakes early 1998 and like many others was instantly hooked. Times were simpler then, with little to no assistant programs (UOAssist did come not too long after, which of course everyone had). I remember a lot from that time... PvP, RPing, and just playing the game as it was. It was a time of noobs and those just having fun with everything they found... Skills were extremely hard to gain and being 7x was a huge undertaking - and rarely seen. We all "thought" we knew the best way to train things: ...and then some guys would come along and show us how it is really done. You know, everyone tried to make a tamer back then too: When you were able to tame that very first Dragon, it was time to remember: Let us not forget our Ultima heritage - there was lots and lots of role playing: Dupre and his group of heroic defenders (ignore the free dial-up -- don't hate, we all used it) Seers would give out quests in person... Ye Ole Tavern (I think it was Golden Dragon Tavern) And of course there was organized PvP... Trammel did end up becoming a thing. We all quickly placed houses in choice locations, but soon found that with so much land, comes much loneliness and boredom... Many of us ended up getting in trouble because of this boredom... I don't remember too many folk from back then, but I do remember those that I spent the most time with: Ace (Onslaught) (Which I remember the guild we were in) Elric (yes, D-I Elric) Azure Drake (aka Azreal --> seen above in jail) Most of Order of the Golden Dragon (OGD) Good times... What do you remember about Great lakes back then? Let's see YOUR screen shots!
