Hey, sorry I had posted this quickly and forgot to return to the thread.

It's currently t2a, feluccia only except t2a lands are disabled. There are some heavy custom additions to the system such as the "Paladin" guild which are anti-pk hunters. Some adjustments to ships, such as ship combat (cannons etc) and other various cool additions.

The biggest thing I think is the Kings system which allows players to be elected to kings of each city. Each city can then declare if they are chaos order or balance. 3 pvp factions or they can go rogue and be solo - without a standing but this leaves them vulnerable to be attacked by anyone. You can be a citizen of each town to gain particular benefits but you will not be thrown into the chaos order balance battles unless you join the militia.

It's a very impressive addition that currently holds mostly all the hardcore PvPers from UO and I believe at this time IPY is currently the largest and most active UO free shard.

inporylem.com is their website - there you will find all the info quickly. I feel as if I have described it without giving it justice.

Played IPY Friday, Saturday, and quit today.

Some things to know before starting; no mounts, no recalling to or from the inside of dungeons, all of ice island is only accessible via boat (no way to recall or gate there), and the deal breaker in my case - skill gains are limited per day! For instance, from 90 to GM you can gain .4 skill per day. Monsters also drop less gold (ettins dropped like 50gp) and the shard feels overcrowded.

Still much better than the PK griefer filled garbage that is UOSA.

I have a feeling that these issues are because of griefers.

-No mounts:
(not sure on that one) Maybe griefers often exploit speed?

-No recalling to or from the inside of dungeons:
That's definitely because PKing got so bad, players would instantly recall out the moment something didn't look right (unfamiliar name, red name, etc).

-Limited skill gain
Basically because too many freeshard players just unattended bot their way to GM. overnights. This evens the playing field a bit.

But yeah. I quit UO Second Age because all the players who:
-Ghost for risk-free recon
-Bot to GM
-Bot to make gold
-Too many alt accounts
-Too many PKs
-Too many Griefers
