Garrett Fuller : Lessons Learned from a Free Shard

Posted Jan 18, 2013 by Suzie Ford

Ultima Online in its simplest and purest form is a sandboxer's dream. We've been spending some time playing on a 'free shard' and have a list of lessons we've learned about what a true sandbox is. See what we've got to say before leaving your own thoughts in the comments.

It is the old version of the game and simply gives players the sandbox they have been looking for. The rules for most free shards allow players to buy into some stats and such, but the shard I play on is by the book for Ultima’s Second Age. After playing now for two weeks and using Razor’s Interface there are some valuable lessons I have learned about why players go back to sandbox games and why they stay active. Also, the community is full of hardened veterans who all work together to make the game fun for everyone. Here are a few of the lessons I have taken away from my two weeks in old school Ultima Online.
