UO Traditions (UOT) is a private Ultima Online free shard founded on August 01, 2010. It remained under daily development and testing until becoming publicly accessible on December 22nd, 2012 (over 6,000 hours of development time). UOT operates non-profit, directed by it's staff and supported by it's players.
UOT is a 'Family' oriented shard designed to provide a respectful environment for people to enjoy the traditional aspects of the Ultima experience. PvP is only allowed on the facet of Tartarus with its special quests, challenges and rewards. Meanwhile all other facets are spawned and available for non-PvP play.
UOT is a unique fun world with all the standard features plus a lot (really a lot) of custom areas, quests, dungeons, monsters and items etc.
