After being away on business for several weeks, I logged in to find that my house had decayed and I've lost everything. I joined UOF in 2018 as I travel on business extensively and wanted an old school casual game. I was excited to see I could buy Dono coins and get a character up and running quickly, and settle into a house. I could sort of get back into playing quickly, given I have a lot more responsibilities now than I did as a teenager playing in the 90s. Unfortunately, all of the time I spent GMing a bowyer and making slayers is now wasted, as my collection is gone. Everything I bought to gear up and play is gone, and I'm sure several items I got with Dono coins also are down the drain. All my arrows, scrolls, regs, vanqs… all gone. I'm sure there's a mob of people waiting for houses to decay and it's fun for them, but I'm now leaving the game as I am unable to rebuild what I had, even as brief as it was. I would suggest adding something to the game with Dono coins that can be used to extend decay times. I spent several hundred dollars on Dono coins and invested in the game for the long haul, but my job is disaster response and I have no control over my location and assignments. I was dealing with the fact that PKs wipe me out daily, so I stockpiled stuff to "grab and go." I spent weeks stockpiling. I'm back at square one and don't feel like going through it again. I've got like 1.7 mil gold from selling Dono coins, so its not like I can't just buy another house but, heck, why bother? So, I'm out. I'd just suggest adding something to prevent decay, even if it costs real life money. I have plenty of that. What I don't have is control over my schedule or internet availability. Banks can't hold enough, so a house is necessary. It's a shame. I was sort of having fun.
