Hey! Long time classic player, first time on these newer x-packs (pretty much nothing newer than Second Age).

Even though I have been playing the game on and off for almost a decade now, I really have no idea how to get started. In the previous times I've played, I've either a) Given items and just toured the world a bit or b)Not given items, and played around with NPC plate armor, killing zombies.

This time, I want to properly build up a character or two, and on my own. For that, I need to know where to go, and what to do. UO is a game notoriously difficult to find guides for (but thankfully full of people that are more than willing to help)

So, I'm building a chivalry lumberjack PvM'er, following the guide template on this forum. Where should I GM my skills (New Haven is getting boring), and where should I go next? What sorts of items should I aim for?

I quite enjoy crafting too, so I have a gargoyle blacksmith for that. What is the deal with BoD's? Just got a pitiful 157 gold pieces for 15 mauls, so I must be missing something.

Looking forward for tips, suggestions, and also for any other newbies who wants to hang out.
