Mostly C - In UO I had a pair of mules.  However, you forgot one.

  F) Playing 'undercover'.  During my most intense UO playing
  period, my main character was a member of an anti-pk guild, the
  SBR.  He was kill on sight to nearly ever major PK guild on Lake
  Superior.  Some days I enjoyed the infamy and the 'hunted man'
  status, but other days I just didn't want to deal with it.  I had
  a character who was built very similarly for the days when I
  didn't want to cope with stuff like that.
