There are 2 primary websites that have a lot of information about Ultima Online.
How to Leveling one or more skills to 100 points? Where monsters are located? How to use spells? What the abbreviations and terms mean in-game? Loot locations? Almost every how-to question you can think of.
Please use these websites and familiarize yourself with the game if you are new to the UO experience, as it is very difficult to explain the nuances of the game through text chat.
Remember to Insure your items
Item insurance costs only 1-2000 GP per item (gold has to be in bank and not as a check) and will place your armor, jewelry, clothing and other insurable items in your backpack upon your death in-game.
Here you can train fastly many skills like archery, macefighting, swordmanship, wrestling, healing, parrying, lockpicking, magic skills, resisting spells, veterinary with pets and much more. You can also train strenght, dexterity and inteligence.
You can ask in-game some players have some free stuff for new players to get you started, like LRC gear or weapons to train melee skills. (Please remember that constant begging is frowned upon by older players. You must set out and adventure to earn gold initially.) With a weapon and shield equipped you can train melee skills at training center (located by the 'Britain Castle' there is an animal tamer.) Remember, most of the armor and weapons that you may use in training melee skills have limited durability. It is best that you disrobe any armor with durability before engaging the training NPC's in combat. You will never die fighting them. Your weapons will wear out but can be purchased at the Blacksmith or Armorer NPC shops.
If you meet another new player in the training room, go to the "newbie dungeon" with him to beat the enemies inside together.
New Player Dungeon
You can find an armor to start at the Newbie Dungeon, obtaining it's very easy and allows to have all the basic stats. So I would suggest you to train Magery first. Custom Zombie reside inside New Player Dungeon. (I have heard that a nice beginner weapon should drop there.)
Killing zombies in this dungeon you'll grab newbie coins that you'll use to buy pieces of the zombie gear, pieces of a strong armor, the best one for a new player.
Don’t try to get the best stuff right away. Normal magic gear isn’t as good a levelable gear, but it will get you started and help you to earn the money, badges and skill to get the levelable gear you want.
Also, the Despise Dungeon is located North of Britain and is a great place for working your middle to high skills prior to having levelable weapon.
New Player Donation Box
Check out the 'New Player's Chest' at 'Britain Bank', it's upstairs the bank. Look or ask around if any vet player has set up a private vendor where you can buy for gold for some items which you normally get from killing easy monsters. I have seen for sale leather, fertile dirt, Zoogi fungus and other such items.
I have noticed many players asking for gear or gold. If you don’t get lucky and there is someone to give you free stuff. In the loot bags that are dropped by people doing the champ is free stuff. It may not be the best equipment in the game, but you might be able to put together a LRC suit or maybe something to go hunting in. The only thing they normally take from those bags are gold and badges so there are normally reagents, arrows, pieces of gear, scrolls and a number of useful items to a new player. (Warning; loitering in the gate room for the purpose of snatching these unguarded loot bags is a quick way to earn a bad reputation as a trash picker. Please be polite and ask if the player leaving the loot bags is actually finished with the contents!)
Some useful commands
Useful in-game commands through typed chat system for purpose of looting corpses:
[gr for area loot or [cl for single corpse are your friends. Set a button for it. Use it often. To use [gr successfully you will need a loot bag. Loot bags (they cost 0 GP each), both can be bought from the Gold Stone at Britain Bank.
Having trouble getting back to your corpse? 2 skills are very helpful in that regard. Hiding and Stealth. With those two skills you can walk back to your body, doubleclick it to loot, and walk out without any monsters seeing you. If you walk through a monster in Felucca you will pop out of Stealth, so be careful. To overcome that little problem, a high Necromancy skill and using the spell 'Wraith Form' can solve it. Wraith form allows you to pass through monsters without being revealed or losing stamina. Hold CTLR+Shift together to find items or corpse easier, especially if corpse is behind a structure or out of sight.
If you don’t have UO Steam, Razor, UOAssist or Easyuo get them. UO Steam and Razor are pretty easy to learn how to use, to use them well takes practice. Easyuo is a little complicated for someone who has never seen a scripting language before, but there are a number of tutorials on their website and Youtube I believe. Once you understand the basics, you can download full scripts from their website (you don’t have to write them yourself, although if you do you will be that much more powerful in-game. With the basics on how the language works you can tweak and fix small bugs in the scripts to adjust for this server.

New Players Guild
The new player guild could be a great idea to start playing with other people learning the game dynamics and the shard custom news.
