Welcome to Whispering Pines - A Free to Play Shard!
where the Western Winds of Britannia blow you towards adventure!
Whispering Pines is a fun, family oriented Ultima Online free to play shard. Kids are welcome if properly supervised. Except for occasional, monitored events or staff sanctioned bouts, we are a non-PVP shard. You will find our staff to be friendly and professional. Whispering Pines is a balanced shard, with challenges for both new players and experinced vets. We have great players who all strive to help new players get started on the right foot. We are not, however, a "gimmie gimmie" shard. You will be expected to earn your way here, as all players before you have done.
You can find out how to get the Ultima Online software for FREE in the "Getting Started"
section of our forums, Step 1. The address for shard login is wpshard.com and port is 2593. Detailed login information can be found in the "Getting Started"
section of the forums.
Our 24/7 dedicated server runs client version 5.0.6.c.
Please use the same client version for best results.
Our "Easy Start" professions remove much of the training drudgery, as they set all your skills to 70, and 6 of them to 100 (based on individual profession). Once in-game, you will be able to choose from the following Professions: Magic, Warrior, Ranger/Tamer, Crafter, or for more of a challenge, No Bonuses. Don't worry, there will be tons of challenges if you use the "Easy Start" professions. There is no skill cap, so you are free to train everything or anything you like. The stat cap is 325, but 365 is possible with stat scrolls.
Please read the History
section of this website. The history will give you valuable background on Whispering Pines, and the rules explain what we expect from our players. Our Forums
contain many posts explaining how to start your character and detail many things you will find in-game. It will be well worth your time to read through the posts located there. The Commands
section lists most of the available in-game player commands.
We look forward to adventuring with you!
