Hmmm, you say that a lot, these days.

I do see that Annabell edited her original post to (attempt to) spare your rather-emo fragilities: I, also, do imagine that, perhaps, she might be wiser than I am.

#IRL: when I was a little boy, my maternal grandfather advised me, "choose to wrestle with pigs and you can expect to get dirty".

This, um, will undoubtedly make you angry hungry.

BTW, don't get up: I imagine you need to preserve all your energies for your next trip to the refrigerator.

Please forgive me that I did not review the OP.

Do what you feel is best. If you are resolved to continue-on here, at UOSA, the Silver Serpent Society is willing to extend to you whatever encouragement and supports you might require (certain things, um, not for free, but at "friend" prices; I guarantee). I'm not asking you to join the SSS, merely to learn that you have friends, here; I can't speak for The Gods, but I do know he is a stand-up fellow, and has been known to bend-over-backwards to help players, here.

You do not stand alone: anytime you see "[SSS]", you are looking upon a friend.

Thank you for the kind words. I don't plan on giving up on the server, I love it too much. It just makes me sad that there's so few players to help because of Vega's grief squad "Pixxel Pros." But fret not, I will not give up!

I'm glad you are happy and willing to 'hang-in'.

To be fair, Vega can not be solely-blamed for driving new players away from UOSA: as PKer, he has demonstrated that he can be a PKing menace and, just, flat-out nuisance, but there remain many griefers still-installed here; if Vega has become a "town-killer", then he must be really bored and lazy.

UO-t2A is/was the best game ever devised, even though it possessed certain deficiencies: complaints must go to Richard Garriott and EA (through a TARDIS to 20 years ago ...).

All I am saying is, the ruleset demands an immense amount of investment simply in start-up: even with guidance, it's tough; without guidance, almost-frustratingly-impossible; UO was the 1st MMO and, 20 years ago, players were willing to divert the investment, and learn.

That, quite simply, can't be expected these days.

I've 'play-tested' other shards (some years ago, I was hoping to find a 'vacation shard', much like, on OSI, creating satellite characters on other game servers; yes, the game is that good; I had wanted to explore subsequent rulesets, and UOSA, haha, had 'spoiled' me): garbage; however popular any server might be, in the absence of any 'true' ruleset, one will log-in to encounter players who are doing nothing more/other than masturbating in front of a mirror … They, certainly, aren't playing UO.

I apologise to all for severity and harsh words (and, um, for 'preaching').

My primary purpose was/is to reassure you that the player-population-condition of UOSA is "not your fault". However, nor is it Vega's.

I do hope that Derrick maintains this project 'forever': UOSA is awesome, and I am so glad that I found it.

I really wish there were more people like you in-game. I have yet to meet anyone decent, besides Grofus and nyght, and as we all know, Grofus has been driven away. I don't think I have ever had the pleasure of meeting you in game. I hope to some day.

Annabell,

A riddle: what goes, "clip clop, bang-bang, clip clop"?

An Amish Drive-by …

You have never seen me in-game because I always 'fly under the radar', a talent I perfected on OSI, in-era. I've seen nyght, but not you. I do know that both of you have helped numerous new players, and that is wonderful.

Re: Grofus, ugh, in so many respects he drove himself off UOSA …

For the last year, or so, my own playing has been rather minimal: I got "UO'd-out", and needed a break; RL has demanded much of my time, too.

If either of you need anything at all, shoot me a PM.

Thank you for your kind words.
