Just found this shard and its forums.

Also an old Napa Valley player from 1997-2001. I was Elwind Thorne, Samite Meridian, Psygnosis, and other names I really can't remember at this point.

I ran a vendor tower in the desert south of the Shrine of Compassion called the Tower of Thornes. For better or worse, I was big in the RP community at the time. Any familiar faces out there?

I was Light Shade the red PK from Napa Valley. Not to be confused with Lightshade the blue from Napa Valley who is in DG on here. Before the PK hammer (& Trammel) came about I was mostly found around T2A graveyard.

I played on here a couple years ago, but decided to come back for some more UO fun.

Some of the people I ran around with on Napa Valley that I can still remember: Darklust, Shifter, Tooms, Mufasa, Omega Shadow, Dorval, TGSTK, Stormchaos, LeShemhazi. I also liked to hunt down and kill members of some of the more organized guilds such as Hells Angels, Lost Soldiers of Darkness, OOJ, etc.

I was one of the first people on Napa with GM resist so PKing was a little easier then, but I won't try and let anyone down here.... }:>

If you were in the T2A balron room at night (EST) in 1998/99 chances are I was in there with you, taking half the balrons gold and gems off the body and swapping the fresh dropped broadsword for one of the discarded crappy ones on the floor before you could get in there to loot it. Also, when you died I got your stuff.

To everyone involved in making my night shift job completely awesome, thank you.

Ah old UO and Napa, those were the days! Never was a game as fun as UO. Anyway, played a variety of characters on Napa:
-Honky Lips (later forcibly renamed to Dave by a GM)
-Kal (Kickass thief and harasser)
-Gluttony
-Al Chemy

Others whose names I cannot remember. Man we had some kickass battles on Napa, I wish I still had some of those screenshots. I think my favorite shot was Nomad and I after we stole a rune and house keys from some Japanese guild and recalled into the middle of their enclosed group of houses. In the end, we must have killed 40 of them, and their ghosts were all standing around going ooOOOOoooOOOoooOoo while we looted their houses. A possible second was a screenshot of Nomad in Jail when a GM snagged him from the top of one of the banks where he was whacking people with a 1-hit crossbow. Fun!

Who could forget Air Skippy's! Kick....Ass....

So I was giving UOSA a look. I don't have much time to play anything anymore, but I have a craving for some old fashioned naked dungeon runs, or maybe some PK hunting...

Alright, resurrecting an old thread...

I used to play on Napa since it opened until about 2000 as Maestro, originally of the Virtuous 8 (associated with The Imperium), then as The Sinful (associated with the Revolution). Any chance there's anybody out there I might have played with? I was mainly into the RP community; I remember incidents with Hawkmoon and Aravae, the Redeye Tavern, Pall Mall and Liquid Pleasures, Village of Virtue, the City of Mith, the Pair-of-Dice Casino (owned by Justice I think) and the Revolution. I played a lot with Diamond, Fael, Serix Vivamort, Sja'tesh, and a bunch of others. If those names ring a bell, please let me know.

Shoot, I just recalled a RL get together with a group in San Fransisco. Also, briefly being part of the Death Cards (Jack of Spades IIRC), and I was Seer Thorn (after Seer kelley--when they recruited players to help with the RP community). Oh, I was also great RL friends with Scupper who came up with the Napa Valley News (NVN), modeled after The Onion (a satirical news report), in the late 90's...

It's amazing what you start to remember when you think about the past!

And I do remember owning a pair of Air Skippies.

If I can get the screenies from my old computer, I'll post RP pics of a play gone bad at the Red-eye. I had a hell of a lot of fun so I figured I'd see if there was anybody out there that could reminisce.

So if anything rings a bell, let me know.

Maestro of The Sinful

Just wanted to add my name to the list of Napa Valley players!

I believe I played from 97/98 until just before AoS maybe? 2001/2002-ish. I mainly played one character (Marwa) and was in a guild called EBK, which was primarily just a small group of RL friends that enjoyed PvPing. So of them were Kage, Malice, Kaisah, Guilligan... can't remember many others.

Unfortunately I ended up selling my account after I quit, what a mistake that was.

I don't have screen-shots or anything from my time there... except this gem, which isn't even mine, but it is me (anyone remember Adam Ant?): Adventures of Adam Ant #64

Ahhh... the good old days!

Really cool to see some of these names here.

My main was ONYX. I really have no idea why i made it in all caps back in '97. I remember being in The Knights of Order early on after being PK'd for the first time ever running through the forest near Minoc. Rolled with them doing the anti-pk thing while it lasted. Also rolled with Paladin's Heart and Liam's Regulars. The PK crowd kept things nice and lively for those of us who tried to be good. 8) I know that I ended up going red fighting off some blue PKs in an epic battle during the Revolution days. It was such a blast back then. I was also friends with many in the RP crowd. Near the end of Napa for me, my buddy Pall Mall handed me the keys to the Liquid Taverns. That was my home for a while before I decided to close the door on NV. I ended up handing it off to another close friend of the community.

When SP opened I moved there in a heart beat. I ran as an Inquisitor with Evocare right up to the point where he left to work for Origin/EA. When that happened I found the Shadowclan Orcs and have been a part of their community for the past 13+ years now.

So I've brought my SC persona to this shard and will also be rolling some other characters as well on the side.

Great to see you all.

p.s. luv me some air skippies! My wife and I make Air Skippy remarks anytime we see someone running around in yellow shoes! ;) Yeap, she played UO too!

Heh funny how good my memory is I remember several of those names mentioned...

Not sure if I was playing in 97 but was on Napa Valley for sure playing full time heavy in 98 and 99 before me and my buddy bolted for EQ.
My earliest memories of N.V. were a little playing on my buddies char- Cann Abyss, and my first char which I FUBARed Finn MacCool. I remember some really pathetic reds who used to love to kill newbies around north of Minoc.. KoT I believe? Karn, Pez Ant, Lith, Kane few others cant remember.. remember seeing OOJ doing dungeon crawls looking for reds, people still pking in small packs with fireball.. pack of chars all named borg pking (lol)
The first guild I was in was good ole X-men, X xavier's guild.. most of us were pretty newb but X was pretty good. Hah I remember a big group of us went out and just could not find any reds to kill.. ended up all hidden outside covetous entrance waiting. I yell "pulling" and run off into the forest to go pull some Pks that I was sure were somewhere nearby. Not 20 seconds later I pull two hidden PKs out of the forest and their names were - You guessed it! - Ganndalf and Elric, ran them into our hidden group yelling Heal! as I got near and then killed myself with a lightning bolt reflected off one of them heh..
Made my main char- Angor after I knew a little more, oddly I got to 103 or 108 Int on him due to some weird bug. Ended up spending alot of time farming Shame and a little in Deceit. For the most part was in USB (united skara brae formed from a few different Skara guilds merging) good fun peeps. Alot of my non noob learning was aided by a Hong Kong duo of brothers who played on Scorpio, Orasion, Ricky Lam and Amagi Ricky, and I later joined up with their small PK guild called WTF when their PK chars Lady Crystal and Amagi Ricky merged with the PK duo of Wensley and Yu Ta Ka. I remember them telling me "if SAGE comes recall, damn they are good".. I do remember seing them in action, no offense to any other people who were already really good way back when.. they were just the first guild I'd seen where one guy would come in fighting and his partner would stay out of range tossing heals and buffs playing support and then when he drew too much fire they would switch places. I remember the WCs (Wicked Clowns) always messing with people in Deceit. Also remember them getting banned off IPY 1 for having a castle like 10 or 14 days into the server (supposedly a couple of the Gms fed them money)
I remember a day when Imperium was supposed to fight all comers.. they must have had a talent for pissing people off cause I recalled to the spot and there were like 500 people there... lag fest could barely move. Duncan Rahl and one other guy actually came out in full gear to fight and lasted about 3 seconds to teh zerg..
Tons of fun and frustration mostly due to playing on dial up and being practically frozen, as others would run circles around you and kill you. Lots of laggin out, dying to mobs and losing your gear..
Then me and my buddy bolted for EQ sometime in 99 or early 2000. Got a little exp on a blue server then literally almost never logged out for the first 6 months after Tallon Zek(the second EQ pvp server) went live. Off topic except that by coincidence I eventually found everyone from WTF playing there(and on the same faction team) - Orasion/Crystal , Ricky, Wensley and Yu Ta Ka. They couldnt believe I had the highest level character on the server...
Lots of memories but I dont want to write a book..

Hi! I just started few hours ago in this shard and run into this thread.

I'm from napa when it was open then me and some close friends (clide, amir/ameera, Unyil/ Pak) formed a guild CoS. Not long after that, our friend: Kal, Sol, Pharidmod etc moved from Great Lakes to joined us since it's too laggy in there.
It's been over 10 years and I remember several people from SAGE and if not mistaken ICE ? (this guy always wear white robe and blue apron). I remember "kenny" the most patient house looter. Was Graffix from SAGE? Oh ! where's the g-stringirl? She in here too? lol

Glad to see this post. Bring some good old memory back!

Haha I remember talking to Graffix a couple times, I dunno if he was in SAGE but dun think so. Thats funny I checked out the server for a few days one time years after I left, maybe 2007ish and Graffix was the first person I saw moongate hopping looking for pvp. I remember seeing g-stringgirl around alot back in the day too. Pretty sure I remember seeing CoS too but didnt know anyone in it. Anyhow, welcome aboard.

Edit: Wow forgot to mention Neuromancer, probably the most loved red character on the server atleast in the early years.

good times with CoS. Usually I was on the wrong end of things ;) g-stringgirl was a cool friend way way back. I think I outpatienced kenny one time. Anytime I saw his name on incoming I knew what was up. Another friend of mine on both sides of the good/evil spectrum was Bane. I know he ran around with me early on and was one of my contacts on the other side when he did a lot of running around with the "bad guys" haha. Soooo much fun back then.
