Our passion for creating a nostalgic UO shard but with modern day creature comforts has been in the makings since 2020. I am honored to announce that this shard is now open to the public as a Beta. Beta? An early version that contains most of the major features, but not all of the milestones are completed..
We are currently running with 1080 Skill caps with stats capped at 350 (150 being the highest per stat). Due to the retro feel, we encourage adventures to take up 2 accounts max.
Your adventure awaits! Client connection information can be found here.
Our staff is constantly hard at work and are pretty laid back. Shard is full of all sorts of goodies. You just never know what they might publish next.
This is not your traditional wiki. On the left menu you have core icons but should you wish to go exploring, I recommend switching to the folder view. There is also a global search box at the top of this wiki which also does a pretty good job.
