Cooperation is a big plus...I have to shuffle my time between making Dyso, working around all the stupid Bioware bugs and on top of that I ave to try to maintain peace between my alpha testers! It really does help when people just play and offer suggestions instead of people whining about trivial matters like "so and so killed me and I'm mad now".

Hoping to make Dyso the best!

I agree about the cooperation helping out more than anything. As far as moderators go, I think those could be chosen by taking a look at their history and reputation with the community. Who helps out and upholds the ideals of Gesh best in game would be wise choices.

Hi Gesh.
Any chance of an update of how the version update is going? I'm sure you are already aware of the anticipation we all feel. (no pressure! just trying to get a feel for how far along you are). *smile*

Oh man this is going to be so cool! I was a heavy Dungeon Siege player, then my friend MerchanT got me into NWN just last week. I've hardly played single player (just out of training hall), but I am a longtime fan of true RPG's, and NWN + Dysotopia is *VERY* nice! Now with the advent of being able to make my Ranger a avid hunter and bowsmith......I can't wait!!!

Thanks Gesh, and all ya'll who make Dysotopia really come alive! (yes that even means you, Red, you wanker ;> )

Finally, a new era worthy of the Dungeons and Dragons name for the PC has begun!

I'm probably going to be the only one to say this but icon_evil.gif not happy icon_evil.gif And with good reason, at least I've got two months and my holidays icon_biggrin.gif so that'll give me some time to get this set up. And now is as good a time as any, you see I want to start a new guild called The Slavers Guild. Yeps, you heard me. Slavery in dyso icon_eek.gif how horrible. But I've worked a large proportion of it out and I wanted to wait until I was level 20 to do it. But seeing time is short, the merits of the slavers guild.

The slavers guild presents many wonderful roleplaying elements, capturing:

Image your walking along, singing a song, and then three heavily built men walk out to block your path, they say something about surrendering but thinking your Mr Cool you say no. So they beat you over the head, and before you have time to call for help or anything they give you a pleasant OOC tell saying, don't respawn we'll reserect you. Please go along with this, we're slavers. Now, if you like to roleplay, and I know you do. You'll go along with it, be taken back to the slavers head quarters, conditioned for your working life and sold to someone! A real PC! You'll join their party and be their property until you manage to ROLEPLAY escape, as a slave you have no rights. So they can beat you and whatnot and you can't complain, you'd be like a hired sword but....not. Your master might even free you when he/she's done using you as a body shield from those nasty ogres.

You might even become a slaver, or be permenantly damaged by the effects of being a slave and vow vengeance on any slavers and try to rescue slaves. But don't go around killing wildly, roleplay it first.

Now, there's another option. This is where, if Gesh likes the idea, there'd be another new area needed, or more depending.

Ever noticed the lack of henchmen in dyso? I'm not saying that's a bad thing, it kinda encourages solo roleplaying. But what's so bad with solo roleplaying if you've got a henchmen? Gives it that little more bit of roleplaying flare. Slave Market, the headquarters of the slavers and the prison of the slaves. Where people get brought and sold, and seeing you can't go around collecting real PC's to be slaves all the time have a range of NPC slaves that are modeled around henchmen, I have the first prototype in my tutorial module I'm just tweaking it. You go to the slave market, and buy a slave. Your given a "deed" to that slave identifying it as yours. So you can come back and not have to pay for it again, cause there's copies of the same slaves to avoid confusion. You can free the slave if you like or take it back to market and sell it for either half price or if the slave's level, depending on their level but lower than you'd buy them for.

Or if you feel like being adventurous sell the slave to someone looking for one at a lower price than the market sells for but a higher price than it buys for. But if a slaver catches you, he might be a little angry and demand a fee- not sure about this, kinda discourages slavery.

Now, morally. Slavery is wrong, but so is killing. But this is a roleplaying server and slavery gives a roleplaying touch. I've already talked to people on the server and quite a few would love the chance to either be a slaver or buy a slave, or just the idea of it. And if you don't put up a fight, you won't have to get resserected, and there'd be a max of how many people you could capture for slavery every hour, say one.

And on the note of fatigue, I get fatigued alot. And it's really annoying after a while. I'm a halfling, and I do alot of killing without sleep. So that might be it. I await your response to my idea eagerly...caio icon_cool.gif

Quite exciting stuff, and I am looking forwards to the third age.
I have found L..a..Z to be a natural leader and a caring player. He would make a great moderator. The concept of making 10-15 more of the target than the lv 20's opens up a more chalenging and fun world to play in, I can't wait. icon_mrgreen.gif

Tradeskills are coming along thanks to Brian, some problems have been fixed, and future looks good server wise. When? I'm in no place to answer that.

Yet all I can say, it's that step by step we're heading into that, it just takes time and patience.

Kuma.

Let me think if i understood: people are scared of a HCR server? I see nothing wrong to a server be HCR. Its more fun since you dont always have good items. Also you will be more carefull about geting killed and also you will have to carry food and water, with makes the game even more rp. icon_confused.gif

Yes, but there are already many many many HCR servers out there. It is also fun to play a none HCR server, like dyso.  Reply with quote

I must say I am very excited for the new dysotopia. I have helped by distrubuting some funds to your efforts and cause. I hope you put them to good use, as I trust that you will ^_^. I find it kind of funny how people are so.. eager to moderate. Well... sorry guys but that is a position that should be earned. Earned not only by respectful people, but by regular players as well. Would I like to moderate? I have already made my proposal to many of the moderators already, but I'm leaving it at that because they choose who they feel rightfully qualified, and I can totally understand that. Good luck to everyone out there in the new era. I hope you all enjoy it and I hope to see everyone return after the character wipe.

As to Geshtal and Bri, I can only say thanks. You guys have done one HELL of a job, and I understand how difficult AND time consuming it is to make a module. Sometimes it takes many hours plus just to make one little thing work the way you want it... so... keep up the excellent work and I will continue to do my part as a player.

Bye!
