Donations and Gear

UO Darwinism is an Ultima Online Free Shard; a free to play MMORPG game, actively developed by its staff, supported by its players and will hopefully remain financially stable with a little help from our donors. If finances generated through player donation exceed what is necessary to maintain or improve the shard, they will go to supporting the staff members that help to make the unique Ultima experience we aim to provide.

As of this update (November 7th) we are still very much in alpha. We are not accepting donations at this time. We feel there is too much of our content that is subject to change as we are in this early period of squashing bugs and fleshing out our vision for the shard long term. We don't want to accept a bunch of donations and give out any items or gear, just to take them out of the game or change them in the next month. Please be patient with us. We have had several players express interest in donating, but at least for now I would not feel comfortable giving anything out that wasn't some piece of decoration or a title.

Our philosophy on donations to UOD regards that they should be an entirely voluntary thing that a player engages in because they want to offer support to the shard, and perhaps circumvent some of the early game grinding (though I would point out this can be quite a rewarding learning experience, even for a veteran player) that some people just don't have the patience for. We do not believe in donation exclusive functional items. What this means is that everything that you all donation incentives that are NOT available to be generated through some kind of in-game play will be of a decorative nature. This would include for a limited example things like housing, decorative items, titles, custom designs or unique colorings for things. While you will be able to gear, consumables, keys etc from donating, all of those “functional” items that you will need for high level play will have an available collection point somewhere in the game, if you're willing to grind for them. YOU SHOULD ONLY BE DONATING FOR GEAR IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO WAIT ON A DROP CHANCE!

Darwin Dollars

Darwin Dollars(DD) are our shard’s “premium currency” if you will. They are the highest value-per-unit currency we will have on UOD. The easiest way to obtain large amounts of DD will be to donate, but we also have many in-game staff run events that will give it as rewards. If a staff member pulls you for help with testing something, you can expect a few bucks to be thrown your way. DD can also be obtained by voting, (1DD per vote cast) looting them from monsters, finding them in chests or on hunts, and sometimes even from certain quests.

DD does not have a real world value, and isn't backed by anything other than our desire to make the player base feel like they are getting value for what they put in.

DD is exchanged in a 20 to 1 Ratio
$1 = 20DD

Darwin Dollars are the currency accepted at any of the green vendor stones located throughout our shard. The main brunt of the stones are located at Darwin City gate and on the first floor of the Item Display, reachable through the Displays category on any permanent moongate. Darwin Dollars will also give you the strongest buying power when dealing in trade with other players, as they are used to purchase the best items, and are the hardest to collect in large quantities.

IMPORTANT! Should you choose to send us a donation, we need to find you in game. For this, we will need more than simply the email from which you donated. When you donate, you will need to contact Methril or Mayor in-game. You can attempt this through world chat if you know one of us is around but otherwise it would be best to send us a PM in-game or contact us via Discord. We are going to need the account name, the email that sent the donation, and the name of the character to whom you would like your incentives delivered.
