Does anyone remember that cloth map and pin you got with the game at release? I was cleaning my garage the other day and came across it. God what a good game(was). I remember when I bought my first boat, and sailed out of moonglow only to get totally lost at sea.  I actually had to use that map, and unlike other games there is no simple click for the world map to show you your exact location. Its little things like this I miss in mmorpgs these days.

I wasn't a lucky one to have played that early to get a cloth map, but I did have the large paper map with the book of 100+ pages telling you everything in the game.  I still have it sitting around here somewhere.

  I got two Uo cloth maps and pins that came with the first retail box. One cloth map is hung up on the wall in my Pc room. The pin is stuck in a pin-up board . The second cloth map is still in the original box with the pin still attached to the map.

The original cloth map and pin are very collectable. I was hunting them for a while on Ebay several months ago. I've seen the map sell $14-20, and the pin as high as $26 though that was just once. I managed to pick up a complete Collector's Edition Box on Ebay that came from Australia complete with Aussie tax stamps for $22 and contained both. If you want to get a hard to acquire item/ items, the 2 posters that came with the Signiture Edition usually sell above $20 each. Finding them without pin holes and tears, now thats a challenge.

My cloth map ended up framed above my computer desk, and my pin accents my Guild cap.

I had my old cloth map in a picture frame for along time till my finally made me take it down because I was not playing UO anymore.  I still have it somewhere, I saw it in a box when I PCSed from MO to AK recently.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill

I never had the cloth map, but I did have the paper one that came with The Second Age.

 

Man, it's crazy to think.  Remembering the first day we played.  All the things we have been through in UO.  Just think, that game was really the only thing out there at the time.  We had so many things to look forward to, the guilds and their battles.  Now it's all just history to us that we look back at.  I wish I would have taken more care of my UO paper map and could frame it.  I know I made a mark to where all of my houses ever were placed in Britannia on my map.  UO still has many features that most games today feel like kicking out just to help the player get involved.  In UO, you really can explore.  Hell, I still explore in that game til' today, there are still things I have not seen or things that are new to me...and I've played it for 10 years.

Still have mine, actually.

 

And my original box, and CDs. Man, I just hope that a game can eventually draw me in again like UO did. Even if it's not by the same means, I just want that feeling of being a part of a real functioning community again. UO was so dynamic, so many player created and ran things... And it worked, too. Well for a time.

 

If I had a 100% guarantee that it would be made correctly, I'd play a UO2 (may we mourn the casualties of the past) before anything else.

 I didn't have the cloth map, but I did have the paper one.  I remember have the prima's guide that was totally wrong, but I still read it non-stop in school.  I read it so much that I actually got a friend to play UO.

Blessed be the lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.

I still have my cloth map, and the strategy guide I got with the game. A little history on it-

 

I was like 15 and my mom's friend from work, a long time RPG fan, got UO and was telling me how great it was. I begged and pleaded for my mom to get it for me, and she called the local GameStop (Babbages at the time) and had them hold me one. We went there, they talked us into getting the strat guide to (unofficial I think), and I read it the entire way home. And I read every page every night until I knew it forwards and backwards. The first time i logged in, it was like being in another world, a truly living, breathing, ever changing world.

 

You name one MMO that can make you feel like you're in a real world, not a game.

If you're going to stick it out there, don't be afraid if you get it cut off.

Yeah I still have mine too.  It was a really nice piece, better than the stuff you see sent in the pre-order editions in other MMOs these days.  Although I wouldn't recommend using the map to help you navigate Britannia lol.

i still have my origional UO cloth map, box, and what was laughingly called the manual :)

i still have my first eve online box as well,  the STW box, EQ box and DAOC box.

interestingly enough, thats all the boxes i got lol, nothing since, including wow has given me enough origional memories to hold on to the media.

 

Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...

Richard Garriott was big on things like this in his games. Somewhere I have my U4 lead Ankh (yes, LEAD) and my Auto Duel tool set, too. I miss stuff like this but now the only way you're going to get it is in a $160 Super Mega Exclusive Preorder Collector's Edition Box Set.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

I remember this, but I'm not sure I've saved it anywhere. If I did, it's in a box that I haven't seen for years and years.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Swag use to be the best back in the day. I still got my Ghaleon Boxing Puppet from my preorder for Lunar Eternal Blue Complete. Inside the box had a map a hard cover guide a necklacs some push up standies. Now if you want swag like this it will cost you $1000 founders bundle fee that gets you into beta or some shit.
