    So this is just a list of things I remember doing POSSIBLY during this era. I'm only bringing these items up for discussion and for era accuracy. I'm by no means complaining or suggesting any changes should be made. If anyone else wants to add to the list than by all means.

    1 - The message board - You used to be able to post custom messages for other players to read.

    2 - Stealing from barrels at the docks and at Lord British's Castle. I know I did this. I would steal armor to raise my thieving and got guard wacked countless times.

    3 - Stealing books from the library, same as above.

    4- Ability to communicate with NPCs: asking them your location and the direction of shops, etc.

    5 - TBD

    The message boards did work in the uor era and possibly through age of shadows as I recall, because I used them for recruitment back in the day. I'd imagine Telamon disabled them here for drama reasons as on uosa they were used for nasty messages and sometimes racist propaganda lol

    Not a big fan of racist propaganda but I'd love some bank message board drama.

    I request... nay, I demand that message boards be activated with their full functionality if only for the sole purpose of giving our Hadrian the outlet he deserves.

    I can program the bot that will do it for me.
    Easy, real easy.

    I'll just need a newbie dagger.

    You can steal items from Lord British's Castle and the docks?

    I do think Ive stolen books from the library here but I dont think I raised any skill from it.

    Ive stolen items from chests around the realm. Some rares must be stolen from chests, like masks in some locations. Im not certain if I stole anything from a chest in Lord Brit's castle. Also, Ive stolen fishing poles from barrels on docks. Not sure if I ever tried Brit or not but I have in Skara.

    You also used to be able to talk to NPC's: Asking them what city you were in or where shops were located. They would tell you the direction to go and the name of the town you were in.

    It is pre-Ren I am sure but I remember when shopkeepers would ask you to kill another NPC for them that they disliked... it used to be hillarious when two shop keepers were in same shop and saying "Will you kill Bob for me, he is evil" (or some such) and Bob would say "Will you kill Sam for me, he is evil"...

    UO:R was never intended to be era accurate. It is a mix of Second Age and Renaissance taking the best from both with added fixes and enhancements.

    Right. These things would add to the game, hence the discussion. Nobody is complaining or clamoring for changes, just having a discussion.

    This was in the time before insta-guard whacking. It was part of a quest system. You could accept the NPCs quest and then go kill the target for a gold reward.
    During this time if you committed a death penalty crime in town a guard came and began attacking you normally and would summon other guards too. They had like 2-3 hit Hallys so it was near insta-death but they didn't teleport after you and you could escape if you planned it right. You could also use spells like firefield and poison in town as well. It was the Wild West era of UO the first year.

    Yes a discussion. I was simply sharing given some in the past have indicated system xyz isnt era accurate. I wish the guillotine in Nujleum was functioning.
