Point taken. We forgot about the mules in UO. It has been awhile
since Alex (my son) has stomped around Britannia. The pet system in
UO is a high point of the design. So was the ecology system.  All it
needed was next year's servers and about 3 orders of magnitude of
world size and it would have been awe inspiring.
