My shard was called Catalyst NOW and is currently down. When the shard was first released in 2005, it was put up for the players of a shard called Neverlands while it was down. At the time, it was called NecroPVP and had a very limited structure and location. In its last form, it was expanded into different types of gameplay. Although it still had PVP elements to it, it was more of a puzzle/adventure type shard where you had to figure certain puzzles out or figure out how objects and items fit together. It was a very cryptic, but unique Ultima Online experience and the player base that it had quite enjoyed the concept while it lasted.
Although you can get most of the information off the official site, Catalyst NOW runs on 095sp2 of the POL emulator, which means it ran with pre-Age of Shadows client and files.
