After trying three times today to get something going, and having the server three times croak with what I know was not a large load ... I am suspending any further events on my part because I am tried of working on something for 20 min only to have it lost in seconds.

Well talk about awkwardness last night. There the blue dragon was claiming ownership of Eleriina, the next thing we know, everything's back to normal. icon_mrgreen.gif

Sympathize............I dont know but think can understand the annoyance frustration of planning something then for no fault of own not doing...
All can say is thanks for trying.

After more crashes just playing last night I am forming a conclusion that at least PART of the crash problem is Kobold spawns in Topaz. Seems when there are a couple groups of them nearby working together and they get a few of their big boomer spells off, the server goes bye bye.

I agree that Topaz has something that can cause crashes....and i'm sure it is likned to the Kobalds. This has happened to me, when even fighting 2 of them, with out big spells going off, seems likely some of the old script (when they had blade barrier...might still be there).

It might help to remove the Koblads for awhile, perhaps replacing them with...Devine renders, or something else....perhaps bone guardians...and see what happens.

Hope this helps....I've noticed more than once in Topaz when I go across the bridge and attack the Kobald Shaman the server has locked up. It's happened at least 5-10 times now, so I make it a point not to go over the bridge anymore.

I like Grok's idea...just change the kobalds to something else at least for a trial period to determine if they are the problem.

Thus the masses have spoken.

I hear that the Summer Kobold Migration season is almost upon us. I wonder what natural (or unnatural) wonder will fill the space left by the kobolds in the Topaz food-chain?

Perhaps Goblins? icon_wink.gif

That'll be done tonight. Later!

mid to high level Dire Wolves
Golems, bone, flesh, Iron...
Spiders Empress, or Queen ( a bit tougher)

Are rakshasas in the game? They are in the manual, but i dont recall seeing any. I think they would be a cool addition.  Reply with quote

Lemme see...

> higher level battle devourers

A possibility

> frost Giants

Wouldn't be hanging out underground

> Drow..a nice mix
> Spiders Empress, or Queen ( a bit tougher)

Already have a plan in progress for 'em...

> cave bears
> mid to high level Dire Wolves
> Golems, bone, flesh, Iron...

All good possibilities...

The Rakshasas are in the game - but it'd be kinda odd to just have a pocket of them in one cave. I'd also look for them elsewhere.

Hmm. Gonna have to think about it. Thanks for the suggestions! Later!

Oh, I didnt mean in the cave, just in the game somewhere. Like a nice area to hunt for fighter types only, since they are resistant to a lot of magic.

Many a time have i caught a stray fireball while hunting. Grrr icon_smile.gif

Not a problem then - remember, Dyso is a huge island - and we've only seen the Southeast corner of it so far... icon_wink.gif

Later!

No that's just south.

Dang, good to hear about these tons of oodles of changes coming down. Props, Glith (and any others involved - Bri?).
