Players can choose different servers called Shards that are uniquely specific to different Ultima Online expansions.
How do I connect?

We are providing a tool free that will allow you to play each server with that specific expansion disc-set sold. The client is required to play on Sosaria Online.
The following steps are completely REQUIRED TO PLAY!

To setup the SON Launcher, you will need an Ultima Online client, yes ORIGINAL Ultima Online client. You cannot use any other client, do not use a client obtained through torrent or warez sites.
