It's been a little under a week since I got through the application
process and joined the little community at UL and let me tell you, I
almost wish it had taken longer! There's so much lore and so many
systems to learn and figure out before you jump in! I agonised over
what kind of character I would be for days! The system is an amazing
array of choices. You pick class (and subclass, in many cases) to give
you your base build and basic spells but, after that, you can do
whatever you like!I love the combat system, honestly. I was so tired
of 'round based combat' where you just type 'kill (whatever)' and
let it all scroll while you just monitor health.
In UL, you control every action. It's a RoundTime based system, with
rolls of offense vs. defense with every attack. A wide array of
weapons with different styles (and verbs) of attack, and a wound
system that actually includes limbs, bleeding, etc. It feels like a
more fleshed out Gemstone, all around, even though UL is still in its
testing stages. The players I've met are friendly and helpful and,
individually, so interesting!
I highly recommend dropping in on the website (and forum) and
checking things out.
As a warning, the community is pretty sparse, at the moment. They're
under new management and also migrating to a new engine. But character
info and stats, etc. won't be lost from what I gather so jump on in!
