    I'm an alt-o-holic. I love making new characters; it's my favorite part of the game. I see posts on the forums and in IRC all the time asking for skill template advice, and while we all help where we can, I'm sure a lot of us would like a quick reference for a peace dexxer, a provo-mage, treasure-hunter, or any of the seemingly limitless varieties of skills you can combine and have fun with.

    That being said, I'm very happy to announce the launch of UOPlanner.com, a website for the community to use for creating and sharing skill templates. This is designed for the Renaissance era, a 700 point skill cap, and with the UOR community specifically in mind. It's easy: build and save your template, and then share the link.

    There are some cool features coming soon:
    • Perks - You'll be able to see perks for skill combinations, like defensive wrestling when you have anatomy and eval int, and some calculations, like the damage increase percentage from GM tactics.
    • My Templates - I'm adding in the ability to "favorite" templates, and see all of the templates you've created.
    • Search - You'll be able to search for templates by name or by skill. Finally, you can see what people are doing with GM begging.
    If anyone has any questions, suggestions, or runs into trouble, feel free to PM me here or message KilgoreTrout in IRC.

    Thanks everyone! Glad to see people dig it :) I started working on the search feature tonight, and that should be ready in a few days.

    @snap dragon - Good call! I got the header buttons but missed a few others. I've taken care of it and it'll be a part of the release that includes search later this week.

    You would need music to use the provo, discord and peacemaking.

    I was also wondering, why so many music skills without musicianship? Does this server have special rules or something?

    Which made me think, while this website is awesome, neuances for rules differ widely from freeshard to freeshard. Its great for UOR, but the experience doesnt really transfer over to a lot of other freeshards ive played on (cuz of minor rule modifications, or era specific rulesets).

    Great site though, thanks for giving this to the community :).

    No there are some jokes here, a little game with the most "special" or "uncessary" character .
    Just things like that :p

    "The Blaise" is a troll template based on how....hmm... sometimes the player Blaise acts. Its all in good fun.

    And yes, this is specifically for UOR, as this is the best free shard there is and no other free server that would warrant a project like this.

    Long live UOR.
