  • "Hey do you guys remember Ultima Online, the first real graphic MMO? There's a kickass new free server designed around the best aspects of the game, before EA made a mess of things. UO:Renaissance is bound to be the future of UO. So if you're looking to relive the good times from back then, or just want to play the greatest free-form MMORPG ever made, check this out: http://uoalive.com

  • Great gameplay backed up by extensive website data about the live game world makes this server truly the best. Roleplaying, player versus player, crafting, dungeon crawling, the possibilities are virtually endless. Check us out today for a truly free (no buying your way to the top) gaming experience."
The best way of getting people interested is for you to share your passion for UOAlive and Ultima in general! People get inspired by others who are having a good time, so if you can explain to people or show people exactly how much you enjoy your time in Ultima inviting others to join you will be a piece of cake!
