Hello! If you've come to this page to learn about me, then I've either done something right or something terribly wrong. I'm going to proceed along the lines of the first assumption.
I started playing UO in the Beta phase and played for a few years; sadly at that time I decided to move on to 'bigger and better things'. After many more years away, I finally came to the conclusion that no other game I'd played since offered me the enjoyment and sheer depth of experience of UO, and so I returned.
A great many changes had taken place in that time, and even now I still haven't truly reached a point where I feel totally competent - and it was this that brought me here, to the UO guide.
Right now I am playing a number of different characters, many which have existed since launch day or soon thereafter; there are also a few that I've created since. Mostly I play one of three characters - Dryke, who is (as best as I can reason out) most accurately described as a 'classic Mage'; Anagath, an Archer (and erstwhile Macer and Fencer); and Aundimus, an aspiring craftsman (Blacksmith, Tailor, and Fletcher).
I've tried my hand here on the Guide in a few places - mostly minor grammatical edits, although I did shamelessly copy and modify the Tailor BOD page in order to create the missing Blacksmith BOD page. (My thanks - and credits! - to the original creator of that Tailor BOD page!)
More to follow as it strikes me -
