Veteran Rewards
ULTIMA ONLINE REWARDS PROGRAM
The Ultima Online Rewards program is designed to reward our long-term players for loyalty to the UO community. It is our way of thanking you and showing our appreciation for your long-term support of UO, and for your contribution to making UO the most popular virtual world in existence today. Screenshots for most of the rewards can be found at the end of this guide.

Determining Account Age
Your account age updates according to how many days your account has been active. It is on a 30-day timer which means that your account ages one month at the start of a new 30-day cycle. This cycle is not in synch with your billing date or any day of the calendar month. It is calculated based on how many days the account is active.

Characters that show different ages at the start of the same account's "birthday" may update throughout the month based on the individual character's last login time and date. The characters should be updated within seven days of their first login after the accounts "birthday".

The reason for this is that the server caches an individual character's age and only checks for new information every seven days. This is necessary because of the sheer amount of characters that have been (and will continue to be) created in Ultima Online.

The important part to remember is that your account age is not tied to when the account was opened, but to how much active time has been paid to the account. An example follows:
  • You purchase a 90-day subscription, but cancel on the 25th day. You are only credited for the 25 days the account was active. If you re-activate and the account has been active for 6 days, it will then be a total of 31 days old and it will roll over and age one month.
Any account created before November 30, 1999 will automatically be credited for all of the time from the date it was created until November 30, 1999. In other words, if you created your account on October 30, 1998, your account would be credited for 13 months of time, regardless of whether your account was inactive during part of that time.

Following November 30, 1999, only the months in which you had an ACTIVE account will contribute to the total count of months qualifying you for rewards.

Rewards
The amount of rewards an account gets goes like this:
  • When an Ultima Online account has been active for a total of 12 months you may pick a total of three choices from the 1st year rewards list.
  • When the account has been active for 24 months you receive an additional choice.
  • When the account has been active for 36 months you receive an additional choice.
  • When the account has been active for 48 months you receive an additional choice.
  • When the account has been active for 60 months you receive an additional choice.
  • When an account has been active for 72 months you will receive two vet reward choices (instead of the normal one choice per year), and another two for each additional 12 months in which the account remains active.
Your reward choices may be selected from any of the existing vet rewards you are eligible for, including those from previous years. If you want you can check your account age by logging one of your character into the game and doing the following:

1. Double-click your profile scroll.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the scroll window.
3. A horizontal bar will be at the bottom of the profile text. Your account age in months will be displayed under that line.

Reward eligibility is determined on a per-account basis. Multiple accounts may not be "combined" to increase eligibility. It is normal and intended for your account age to show up to 2 months older than it really is. This is a bonus added to all players just for playing Ultima Online! If you feel that your account age is incorrect we encourage you to use the Support option available on the left. Gamemasters do not have access to this information in game but our email support staff will be more then happy to help you verify your account age if you believe there is a large discrepancy error in your account age.
