Staff members are dedicated members of our community that volunteer their time providing shard support via tasks like coding, answering questions, researching and hosting in game events. These individuals can be identified in game by their yellow health bar, their title (CNS, GM, or Seer), as well as a special robe.

CNS staff members wear shades of blue. GM staff members are seen in a shade of dark red. Seer staff members are robed in shades of green. Administrators and higher levels of staff are robed in dark shades.

Account Related:
How many accounts can I have?
You are allowed to make 4 accounts per household. This is not per player; if multiple people play then the total number of accounts must not exceed 4. Extra accounts may be granted in extreme circumstances (contact an administrator for this).

How do I register my account?
On your first login with a new account you should see a gump asking you to register your account to an email address. When you submit this it will send a message to that email which includes an authorization code. You need to type this authorization code into your game window using the format “[auth ######”. Do this as soon as you can because authorization codes do expire. Your account is now registered.
If you don’t see the registration gump type “[account” in your game window, if the account is unregistered the registration gump should appear.

Why do I need to register my account?
Registration is not compulsory but it will help you with account management and recovery. It is very difficult to recover accounts which are not registered. We will not share your email address with anyone or send any messages to you unless requested when using our account management systems.

Can I recover my old account?
If your account was registered using an email address you can try using our automated recovery system here: ... gement.php
You must be logged in to a forum account to be able to use this service.

Will my account decay?
If you don’t log in to an account for over a year it will be marked for deletion. Accounts marked for deletion are deleted periodically by in-game staff.

I think my account has been hacked, what should I do?
You should change your password immediately (see below). If you believe your password was compromised through illegal methods, please contact an Administrator either on the forums or by paging in game.

Please remember staff will NEVER ask for your account password. DO NOT give your password to anyone. If someone approaches you claiming to be staff asking for your password or other account information, please report them.

How do I change my password?
To change your password, your account must be registered to an email address.

If you can log in to the account, type “[account” into your game window and choose the “Change Password” option.

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset your password using the automated recovery system: ... gement.php
You must be logged in to a forum account to be able to use this service.

I accidentally made an account which exceeds the 4 accounts per household limit, what should I do?
If you accidentally make an additional account which causes your household to exceed the 4 account limit, simply refrain from logging into it. If login activity records show that the account has been in active use, your accounts could be subject to termination.

Game related questions:
I'm new to the game, how can I get some help?
There are many good web-based resources with a wealth of Ultima Online information. We have our own Cartographer and Scribe section for guides and help. Alternative resources are:
UO Stratics (, a long time favorite of many Ultima Online players. Not 100% accurate, but a valuable resource nonetheless.
UOGuide (, a wiki type resource with information that can be applied to Demise in some cases.

How many characters can I have per account?
You can create seven characters per account.

How many houses can I have?
You are allowed to own one house per account.

What are the skill caps?
Individual skills are capped at 100 points (or up to 120 points after the use of Power Scrolls). The total amount of skill points per character is capped at 720 points (depending on character age). A new account starts with a total skill point cap of 700 points, which increases by 5 points every veteran reward interval (90 days) until it reaches 720.

What are the stat caps?
Stats are capped at 125 points per stat and 230 points in total (depending on character age). A new account starts with a total stat point cap of 225 points, which increases by 5 points after 45 days. You can further increase this total by using a stat scroll, of which +25 is the largest. This will give you a maximum stat total of 255 points.

How often are veteran rewards awarded?
Veteran rewards are awarded every 90 days of account age. If you do not see the rewards gump on login and your account is old enough to receive rewards, you may be filtering the rewards gump. To resolve this, check your filters list in your assistant program (Razor/UOsteam).

I lost my items, what should I do?
Unfortunately, we do not restore or replace any items lost due to regular in-game mechanics.

Does Doom Gauntlet have a points system?
Yes it does. You can read more about the points system here: ... =10&t=1387

Will my house decay?
Houses are ageless and do not decay as long as your account has been logged into in the past 90 days. If it’s been longer since your last login, your house will enter the 5-day decay process.

What are the stages of house decay?
Like new - 36 minutes
Slightly worn - 29 hours and 24 minutes
Fairly worn - 30 hours
Somewhat worn - 30 hours
Greatly worn - 24 hours
In danger of collapsing - 4 to 8 hours

In the case of rental vendors being on the house:
Demolition pending - Until all rental vendors and their inventories have expired.

How do I resize my house?
To resize your house in a safe way, you can use the “I wish to resize my house” command while standing next your house sign. This will demolish your house (as it would normally, i.e. items will fall to the ground), and put a protective region in place in which only the same account can place a new house for 1 hour.

Are the rewards one per character on a account or 3 per account?

Rewards are per accounts.

IIRC, the first time your accounts are awared rewards you'll receive 3, the next times it will increase by 1 whenever new rewards are due.
