While this shard is currently being developed I am looking for people to help test out the content and systems that are available and give feedback. I am currently not accepting donations and even when I do you can earn Sovereigns (store currency) by completing achievements or getting a lucky drop of 500 Sovereigns from a Paragon. I do want to let everyone know that I did run another server a few months years ago (Immortal UO) and I ended up shutting it down, but I did allow all the players to download the server files if they wanted to continue playing. This is essentially that server but with more systems and content and I can now afford to keep the server up with zero donations, in fact, I will not be accepting donations until I launch the shard and even then I will not have any pay to win items. I will always keep the ability to obtain the store currency in the game and I may even increase the amount you can obtain freely depending on player feedback. If I ever for some reason have to shut the server down I will make the server files available for download so people can keep playing.

TL;DR: Server is being developed, looking for testers, no pay to win, and no donations needed.

Hybrid Summoner AI – Has a chance to summon creatures when fighting depending on what skills it has. For example, if it has magery and necromancy it could summon any creature that a player mage could, depending on its skills, or it may animate a dead body or summon a vengeful spirit.

PvP Tournaments – *Created by Dexter_Lexia on ServUO* Several Arenas located at Haven Island Arena (Tram), Ocllo Arena (Fel), Khaldun Grand Arena (Tram and Fel), Two Capture the Flag Arenas, and One Royal Rumble Capture the Flag Arena (Find more information about this on the forums).

Achievement System: *Created by Dexter_Lexia on ServUO* You can earn achievements in-game by completing certain objectives such as exploring dungeons, killing monsters, and obtaining gold. Each achievement point you obtain gives you 10 Sovereigns to spend in the UO Store. For example, if you get the achievement for exploring Luna you will get 10 achievement points and 100 Sovereigns. Type [MyAchievements to check out what achievements there are and which ones you have earned.

Xantos Shrink System: You can shrink any bonded pet with a pet leash and have it put in your inventory.

Power scroll Exchange Box: You can put in two power scrolls of equal power (ie 120 anatomy and 120 tactics) and it will give you a random power scroll of equal power (ie two 120’s = a random 120).

Monster Contracts *Unable to find who created this*: You can obtain monster contracts from an NPC in Luna which will allow you to get paid for killing monsters. Just double click the contract and click on the body of the monster you have been contracted to kill (it will remove the body so make sure to loot it first).

Max Follower Deed: You can increase your max follower count by one when using this deed to a maximum of 10 slots.

Automated Staff *Created by Tresdni*: When you click the help gump you will summon a GM Bot that can assist you in various ways. If you need to talk to a real person, it will let you email us. The GM Bot will disappear after 15 minutes and can be called once per hour. When summoned it will bring up a GUMP with keywords you can use to communicate with the GM Bot.

Get Pet Command *Created by Jase Giffin on ServUO*: If you lost your pet just use the command [GetPet and for 1,000 GP (per pet) and it will bring all your pets to your location (this will dismount you off any mount).

Virtual Player Vendor Bots: *Created by Gadget2013 on ServUO* Adventurer bots will purchase items from player vendors every so often which will help players earn more gold while the server has a low population. Player vendors will also now advertise items that are being sold.

Sell Pet Command: *Created by Zigholtul88 on ServUO* You can sell any pet you want to have removed, it will delete the pet, and get gold in return based on the creature’s stats.

Hi Izex. Looking for a new shard for myself, and - potentially - other family members to move to, now that Pandora is... mainly dead.
~5 years play time on Pandora (They did a lot of interesting stuff, played with some cool ideas - if you're interested, I can share what to me seemed awesome - and what not as much) and also before that ~3-4 years on OSI - Renaissance->Age of Shadows. That was... late 90's-early 00's

Would love to help play-test, while you're getting the shard set up (if it's not done, already - but... I figure it's a constantly evolving work..?)

Had some crashes around Luna, between the bank and the house with the gold stone that lets you buy a 30x30 plot. Always seemingly - there. If it crashes anywhere else, I'll let you know - I thought it was my client, but I patched it, verified the files - and it still does it. I guess - as long as it doesn't crash anywhere else, lol - like in combat? But so far - just that small spot, in Luna...

Had an idea, too - while the server pop is low, at least - maybe adding Mark, Gate, and Recall scrolls - to the "cheap" gold-sink stone..? And maybe - a blank runebook? Like for 5k, like the spellbooks..? Since... I have yet to find a player vendor that sells any of that. Was going to ask in global chat when I had more time, later. But since there is already a stone that deals in similar goods (spellbooks) for a reasonable fee (5k) - maybe while the pop is low, that would help people that are just starting out? I was trying to get to T2A to tame an Ozzy, found a rune-lib in Luna... But no "Recall" in my spellbook, and no place to get the scroll short of random drops..!

Also, is it intentional that Papua/Delucia (T2A areas) are not on the moongate ring? (not on the public gate network?)

[Edited]
...Silly me, the spellbooks in the stone are probably full, huh? I guess that covers the "Recall, Mark and Gate", in that case XD

Sorry, I just saw your post! I am not sure why you are crashing at Luna since everyone else seems to be fine there. Are you using www.classicuo.eu or another launcher like razor/steam?

You can purchase recall scrolls from any mage vendor in any city for pretty cheap, and yes, the spellbooks on the stone vendor are full books. You can make good starting gold by going to New Haven docks and go to the building with the four quest NPCs. There is a dungeon in the basement of that building and you can repeat those quests every four hours.

As for Papua/Delucia not being on the public gate, it's because it is like that on OSI (which ServUO is based on). The server is released and I am constantly updating it each month with bug fixes, features, and content. I highly suggest joining the Discord server for better more direct contact with me and the other players.

I also wanted to make an update in regards to the server. There will be a new Lava Dungeon coming out soon with a new boss, quests, and tame all tuned towards players that have just gotten their skills to 100. This should hopefully bridge the gap for new players.
