Episode 147: What Goes Around Comes Around". In the last episode ImaNewbie woke up to find himself (and Irma) in a strange new world. Surely he could not have dreamt his entire existence in Britannia? Venturing out into the unfamiliar surroundings ImaNewbie was imediately overwhelmed by the problems those of us raised in today's world have come to accept as the norm:

But still, something was missing in ImaNewbie's existence.
And then one day all that changed. ImaNewbie was out

His character created, ImaNewbie sets about the
important task of clothing and arming his character
to survive the perils of virtual life in UO.
Striking out along a well-trodden path, ImaNewbie is filled
with a sense of excitement but at the same time can't shake
this strange sensation of Deja Vu. Oh well, it must just be
his imagination. Hrmmm.. what's this, a first meeting with
one of the other inhabitants of his new world?
