OH MY GOD We’re talking about Ultima Online nerd time:
I played this game TO DEATH back when you could be a Dread Lord by murdering people. It used to be full out PVP, my friend and I were murderers who scoured the world looking for fine loot. We had quite a reputation on Catskills server, particularly in Moonglow.
I remember teleporting to all the different npc shops and writing down what pieces of what colored plate armor they had so eventually I could put together full colored sets and sell them outside my house on a vendor, made good cash doing that.
Then they banned PVP and the reputation patch hit everyone in reverse and for having a hundred plus murders I was sentenced to lose basically all my skills on my next death. I just retired the character.
PVP fun came back later on in a Halloween version of the game where you’d join a color based team and there were portals that would get a certain skill to 100 right away.
Good times. I tried getting back into it but it’s still no-pvp for the most part and they have released a lot of weird content for it, seems like a lot of trouble. The fun was pvp for me anyway, not pve.
