I bought and played the original PSO on the dreamcast, even acquired a dream cast keyboard and signed up for a free dial up service so I could play online even though I had a broad band connection, since it wasn't supported. I had a level 50+ male human warrior and like a level 30-40ish female elf mage. I also own the game cube PSO Episode 2, don't remember my levels in that but I was never able to take it online so I just played through the new episode 2 content and I think played the multiplayer battle arena thing a few times and then didn't touch the game again.
I tryed to play PSU on my computer once but the game kept crashing when I tried to start it so I never actually got to try it.
The bunnies of Lavato have special abilities, like 'Action Skill: Make Carrot Disappear.'
