The Sanctuary UK are a Half-Life² Deathmatch games community based in the United Kingdom.   The Sanctuary UK [S-UK] clan was first established in 2001 as a server for Half-Life One Deathmatch (HLDM). We stopped supporting HL1 in early 2006.

The philosophy on our servers is not to take it too seriously, and the emphasis is on FUN.   Arrogance and gloating are not redeeming features.   Remember, it's only a silly game.   If that is not your outlook on the game of Half-Life², then we would rather you moved on, to a server where they like  continual bickering and arguing.   Several regular users of the servers asked if we could have a clan, so all in good fun we now have the clan tag of [S-UK] and to see a list of those brave enough to want to bear that tag in front of their name, click on the members button.
Anyone who would like to join our clan is welcome, as long as you are mature enough to understand that when you wear our TAG, you represent our CLAN. This means that when you are playing on our servers, or on others, you are an ambassador for our clan, and you are expected to treat people with respect. You are expected to mind the rules of the server that you are playing on. You are expected to be friendly, and have a minimum understanding of English.

The Sanctuary maps are made by Electric Warrior (Mick) and Captain Hornet (David), and we have some other guest maps too.
If you don't like any of the maps on our server, please don't whine, find another server.
Mick uses HLSW v1.4.0.4 for remote monitoring of the servers from his home in Portslade, East Sussex, which is on the south coast of the United Kingdom.
