Hello everyone! It's your favorite script leech, Bookwyrm!

I am going ahead and posting my intro for the site since I managed to join without it being necessary waaayyy back then. Many of you wonder why we want you to post not just a quickie intro, but a good intro. Main reason is that we actually want to know a little bit about you before we give you access to all of our wonderful goodies. Yes, that's right, you got to at least buy us dinner before you have a chance to score :-*.

NOTE* We at ScriptUO do not in any way, shape, or form, require you to post personal details on this site (or anywhere else for that matter). What we do want is a fair amount of information about your time playing UO. How long, what shard (be it an OSI shard or free shard), we want to know what drew you to the game, are you a crafter, PvM, PvP? Any other interesting things you might like to share with us about your time playing would be great. Do not share your character names or details about your account unless you choose to do so.

I started playing UO back in '99 during the heyday of T2A. My brother had been playing UO since mid '97 during the Beta testing. He settled down to Napa Valley and when I started playing that is naturally where I settled as well. In the early days I tried a bit of everything to find out what worked for me. It became obvious that I was much better at crafting and resource gathering than I was at PvP (good god I sucked at PvP :'(). After about 4 months of seeing nothing but that growing bald spot on the back of my head my wife finally became curious enough about the game to give it go herself, she was hooked as well. While it was fantastic having a wife that would game it sucked at the time because we only had the one computer  >:(. This situation was quickly remedied and the marriage was saved ;D.

We played for several years. Even getting into the "sell the resources on Ebay craze" before that went to hell and Ebay pulled the plug on auctions of virtual property. I had a brief stint as a counselor on GL and LS, that ended abruptly when they shut down the volunteer program. And other than a short time on a freeshard that I cannot remember the name of and my several hiatuses from the game I have been on Napa Valley that entire time.

My last big hiatus occurred from late 2009 until just a couple of months ago. My wife, who was my best friend and favorite gaming partner, had a heart attack and died in her sleep at the age of 33. It took me a great deal of time to come to terms with that but I am now happy to be back with my friends here at ScriptUO.

So be looking for me in the shout box as I ridicule TM and tease him about all the issues I have with his scripts. ???

Anyone that ever needs a hand on Napa can feel free to contact me. I'm not saying I will help but please, feel free to contact me :P.

Caught this over at earlier. Hey kids, need ya to leave the room for a few minutes. Daddy needs some "alone time" with the Disney Cartoons :-*

Cool as hell, but not salacious at all is this map. Trying to figure out if my new wallpaper will be Disney princesses or this cool-assed map.

I am a huge GitS fan and I was worried when I heard they were going to prequel the movies in this new anime. But after watching the first 8 minutes I have to say that it is looking as good as the original.

Turn on closed captions for the English subtitles unless you speak Japanese...

As those of you that have looked at my profile name may have guessed, I love books. I have been a voracious reader since elementary school and have always had unrestricted access to all Libraries wherever I have gone to school and/or lived.

Saying that, I am by far and away most well read in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Genre.

What I am looking for here is a discussion on your favorite book/series of books.

My favorites? Fantasy would have to be The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon. This is an incredible trilogy that has had some solid stories added to it in recent years.

SciFi would have to be Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein. It stands up quite well for a science fiction book written in the 60's.

So what are your favorites or what do you think about my choices?

After seeing a few of the trailers I have to admit that this is the movie for me this summer.

Anyone else looking forward to this one?

Last month, my wife of 12 years passes away in her sleep. This came as a horrible shock to everyone that knew her -she had been perfectly healthy except for a small (we thought) heart condition.

I know I have not been a terribly active member of the SUO site and that has bothered me. I could blame it on that cornball free server I was on but I would have to say my heart is just not in it anymore.

Perhaps one day I will go back to my old home on Napa Valley just so I can piss off some GM's. Until that time I am afraid that I am withdrawing fully from this community.

I wish you all the best of luck in every endeavor.

Was playing OSI  ::) shards for years and then gave up the Ultima jones for a time. I have now been hopping around freeshards looking for a good fit. Once upon a time I did some script testing for a rather unsavory :D group of people at a site called UOCoders. Just looking to get back into the community for the moment.
