I backed this when it was on KS,

Looking at the most recent gameplay, It definitely feels like UO in almost every way. The skill system, housing, containers in houses, combat, etc.


The only thing I dislike is the cartoon (WoW) style art on some of the art assets.

Wondering if you guys planned on starting something there? Definitely looks promising if it ever gets out of Alpha.

i hear they are talking July 2017 release. And well that window is closing fast. Heard of any updates to the release and what platforms they are using? I did not see it on Steam.

I'm in a mood to game, but no more of the modern MMO. It seems like some old school games are finally coming around, and Legends of Aria is one I just started watching.

Ug der Bruddurs!

Hey guys Just wanted to pop in to see if anyone had interest in this game. I've been playing it for about 2 weeks now and its alot of fun. they game play mimics old school UO in all the ways that are important so the nostalgia factor is high. Its new enough though to hold my interests and its been alot of fun newbing it up again.

I hope some of you give it a chance or try it out for a bit.

So I discovered this game this week, and its going live tuesday this week(in 2 days).

I immediately thought of Shadowclan. A little disapointed that this game only has this little thread.

So how does it work to look like an orc in this one? Is there even orcs? I only saw goblins on youtube. Is there a place to set up as home?

So there is alot that we have to over come. Overall though its a solid game and is alot of fun. it will be tough life for an Orc and we are making adjustments and tweaks as we go. The upside is there is enough there to work with. we just need to adjust out tactics.

If you interested join us in discord !

I'm pretty casual these days (not a lot of time to play), but I started a character on the Legends of Ultima community server. The developers are huge Ultima fans and the server is a labor of love for them. It's a work in progress but they patch in new stuff every day. They currently have implemented all 64 spells from UO. A streamer (Zedicide) hosted a developer chat yesterday (LoU Dev Chat) which will give you an idea of where the server is headed. I really like some of the things that they have planned.


I had previously made a character on Azure Sky, but have only played him for a few hours. My understanding is that reds dominate the wilderness on the official servers since the reward is great and the risk is low, and there is no real incentive for blues (anti-PKs) to go hunt them. On the LoU server the devs have some ideas as to how to better balance the PvP. They also are planning to implement a PvP dungeon like Darkness Falls from DAoC, where your faction would need to accomplish certain objectives in the zone in order to open up the dungeon.

Edit: Some additional info. My understanding is that on the official servers like Azure Sky there are many "protected" zones such that blue players can skill up in relative security until they get to 80+ skill. Therefore, many blues never leave the protected zones. In contrast, on the LoU server there are almost no protected areas (only major towns), but it's more difficult to be red (50% stat loss for 8 hours if you die as a red, and they are talking about making it even more harsh, e.g., permanent skill loss requiring re-leveling). The devs explain why they think it's necessary to implement more risk for playing red in the interview linked above.

I haven't strayed far from the center most town. Is there any kind of NPC orc spawn we can build a base near ?

Crud...was really hoping this would run better on my laptop. My lag is so bad it's pretty much unplayable, but I don't want to buy a new comp just to play one game....

Argh...

Ok so my gameplay is suuuper slow, so bare with me if you happen to see me. I also can't seem to open doors or speak to NPC's. (I've tried left / right clicking, dbl clicking, everything-clicking on them, all to no avail)
Eventually I'll get myself a nice new computer and that'll fix these problems, but while I'm just working on skills I can put up with the lag.

I'm pretty dedicated to the game already, and want to help build an SC branch on the Azure Sky official server. What do we need to start a guild? I would prefer a guild base near an orc spawn if such a thing exists.

Velg, you may want to give the Legends of Ultima community server a try. I'm struggling a bit on it just because I have never played UO, so a lot of the things aren't intuitively obvious to me. But UO vets will probably immediately feel in familiar territory. Also, it's possible you may have less lag issues on the LoU server, who knows?

I have played maybe 20ish hours on each of the 2 servers (Azure Sky official server and LoU) and they feel like different games. As a heavy armor mace/shield tank on both I start with less abilities on the LoU server (mostly just autoattack right now at mace skill 50ish), but heavy armor actually has an effect on LoU with regard to damage mitigation and didn't really seem to have any effect on Azure. Also, there are many more skills available (UO-style I guess) and you get 700 total skill points instead of 600.

Edit: Another thing to consider. I had joined a guild on Azure that was started by a Twitch streamer that I had watched one day. He actually got me interested in buying the game. However, the entire guild just quit because of the dev announcement of the cash shop with potential pay-to-win items (xp boosters, etc.). The LoU devs have stated that the cash shop on the official servers will not affect the LoU server and there will never be a cash shop on this shard.

I would actually be interested in what a UO vet thinks of the LoU server after playing on it for a while. I have no frame of reference.

I'm still willing to give other servers a try, but I hear blackrock clan and some deddies are already on Azure and I'd like to belong to an RP community hub.

This patch is taking forever but I'll try hopping on LOU when it's done.

Any other SCers on here have an opinion on where we should go?

I don't like the idea of stat loss at all, regardless of how long it takes to wait out.

From what I hear, official servers have no stat loss, but your areas of free attack are limited to certain zones and only against players of high skill level. Personally, I would rather deal with this rule set than stat loss of any kind.


I also like the idea of being on an "official" server. It feels more stable to me.


At this point I am willing to go where most of the other RP guilds are, as this seems like it would yield the most gameplay fun.
