All is quiet on New Year's Day o/~

Postby Shar » Wed Dec 21, 2005 9:53 pm

This year, for several hours, instead of having Chaos Newyears we'll be having Multiplay New Year's! Thats right. ONLY on Newyears Eve and New year's day we will allow anyone and everyone to play as many of their own characters at the same time as they desire. No blitzing to level 50, no skill adjustments, no eq hand outs. All this is on the record and totally upfront. No pkill, current rules apply with the exception of the multiplay rule. Grab your friends to get them to log in! Have fun, go crazy. We thought we'd try something new, since Chaos is always such a nightmare for the players and for the staff. :)

I will announce later what the exact times will be so that everyone can plan around/on it if they so desire.






THE TIMES!!!:

Starting :New Year's Eve starting at NOON central
FINISH: January 2nd at MIDNIGHT central

For all you folks who can't translate times, that works out to 10AM Pacific and 1pm Eastern.



If you have questions, post them here!

I been up all night, so forgive my lacking grasp of common english but can you break that down for me a bit? Either way, I'm definitely getting my friend to play when I'm in Chicago!!

nothing against multi day but shrug whats the point? there is no fun in that and so i can make a 15man group and be all by myself. Id like to see Chaos christmas or some pkill put in. No looting just the strategy of going around and pkilling last man standing kinda thing =). Just my thoughts

Nope, all other rules will apply. The only thing that changes for that brief time is that you will be allowed to play as many chars as you want at the same time.

There will be no pk. It turns into a nightmare, code wise, for me personally. Continual crashes and really repetative things that need to be reset upon each crash are just... too labor intensive to do for the fun of few and hatred of many :) Maybe next year we'll do chaos again.

The "point" of this is to do something different for a day, something we haven't ever done before. Pfiles won't revert, everything you do sticks.

Thats all it is. Just flavor. This way, anyone who wishes to play over their newyear break can still do so without fear of logging on and being killed repeatedly and having no fun (which were the biggest number of complaints about chaos...) while still having time spent here count.

Dammit! This was my idea / beg / dream over the last few yearrs and I'm not going to be year! Hope it goes great so everyone wants it next year aswell! :)

I'd love to have a shot at what one or two people could do playing multi just too see or try out for a day. I think it'll be fun! Shrug turn pkill on aswell provided you arn't going to give people insta transport which always makes that into a boring stab fest.

This seems like a really fun idea. I think the pkill christmas thing lost its enjoyment because it got a little out of hand with all of the crazy items, staves, potions, and mobs loaded in wd. Maybe do multiplay new years and pkill christmas without all the extra crap?

Will be interesting to see who can create the largest (functional, successful) group being run by one person. Anyone here can run 15 50th levelers all of your own creation?

Is there still 15 player limit on zones?

Can players "hold" zones. (eg. muspel).

Sadly I think open grouping between races would be way funner then logging more of myselves to play with myself more.

this is way more fun, a great time to level up those smaller chars you'd like to but dont necesarily have the time to do

I love pkill muds in general, but !pkillers dont know how to be creative about it, it just turns into a dont log your char on or it will be pkilled rather than organized battle groups.

Thanks guys :) a TON! :)

Mmm.. I'm levelling up the chars I haven't had groups to level up. Rogues are a dime a dozen these days so getting into an XP group is actually a pita at times.

Group?? Don't need no stinkin group when you have your Pocket Enchanter!!!!! Pixies and druids beware!! Muahahahahaaaaaaa.

I enjoyed the multi.. fire embod and stone certainly helped my little yuan.

I suggest the following change for Scarsdale fountain:

The wondrous town fountain begins to radiate with a soft glow,
releasing the aura a moment later in the form of sparkling lights.
Your form begins to smolder and burn as you are transformed into a fire elemental.
You are surrounded by an aura of burning flames!

That was fun, we should do it more often especially since the pbase is down.

The only bad part was when we jumped the gun on yan-c-bin and I fled only 1 of my chars thinking I was safe only to see my poor cleric bite the dust in my other window. hahaha!!

This was fun, I enjoyed it more than I expected, thanks to the forgers for running it!

Jhorr has a good idea - having this more regularly!
It can breathe some life back into the pbase and game, I think.
Yea yea.

Although I didn't get time to log on for the multi-fun, I think I'd enjoy that just as much or more than Chaos.

As for pbase effects of doing this more or permanently... I think new players would have a harder time than they already do in finding groups if we had this normally. Experienced players would be in a muti-groove and blast past the 1-20 levels in a blink with multi - there'd never be anyone (not that there are many now, I guess) in SD for the new folks to interact with.
