This looks rather interesting. Are there still vacancies? If so I do plan on submitting a character to hopefully occupy one.
If there is a signature here it is because the author probably forgot to disable it before posting.

Sounds fun. If it's open, could I try the tank role? If someone else wants/has that role I'll take the mêlée attacker instead. :)

I'd like to have the other caster if that's alright with you. Also, in this game are there different fantasy races or are the characters all human?

So sorry everyone!! My internet went down. :(

@CyborgMerlin - There's always other races! Feel free to choose whichever one suits you best. :) xx

@JackalopeLove - I'll put you on the list. Thank you so much.

Any objections? :3

Yup. We've still got to wait for ranged and melee characters. And I don't really get much about this game world thing. What levels are our characters at? Number of spells, abilities, etc.? How're we starting off? :)

I can take over for the melee if you want. Or ranged, but I think that's already taken. :)

I re did my character for Melee, I think it won't show up until you accept it. But I did redo her.

(Accidentally pressed log out and deleted everything… Thank you, life)

@Avaria - Thank you so much! :) Got you edited in.

@Alle - Sorry! I've been freaking about my classes so much, haven't been too clear I guess!

I'll start the first post in a bit here, but essentially what it'll be is your real life character finding the beta package, and going to play (whether it be on the spot or a few hours later). None of them were informed that they were chosen as beta players, while they had all signed up to be in that list, they have no idea who else is with them or how many other players will be testing with them.

Aramnia is a load-up like every other MMO (setting up the account, character, stats, etc.), but as soon as they hit 'Enter World,' their body goes into a comatose state, and boom! they're in.

The battle arena, where all new players spawn, is a small, colosseum-like area filled with the stereotypical shops where you can find all that the new character would need, complete with PvP sparring and training dummies to get a hold of the fighting style before leaving the arena.

Once you leave the arena, though, you can't get back in. Everything within scales to level 10, but outside of the arena, you'll find the neutral/evil creeps that will attack, and potentially kill, characters. (While your human body won't die, it will be severely disabled from the severing of the connection. So don't die! PSA of the day.)

Outside of the arena is where (theoretically) everyone would realize they have to start banding together in order to make it through alive. Hopefully we all make it to the Battle For The West. It's theoretically a level 100 instance (max-level), though all levels can enter, but the lowest ones tend to squish.

Spells and abilities vary based by class. Healers and mages will have more, while the tank will have less. Mages, at max level, depending on how their trait tree has been selected can have up to 20 attack spells and 10 healing spells.

Tank/melee, you'll have about 10-15 damaging abilities, and 3 self-heals (not very good, but that's why there's casters). Ranged, you'll have about 10-15 damaging abilities, and 5 various abilities (true sight, set a trap, etc.)

Leveling up is kind of a messy deal, given the way we're 'playing' this game. I think I might set it up that you have to kill x amount of neutral/creeps to level up to level x. So, while we all start at 1, within the battle arena to level up to 2 you'll have to kill 2 creeps. Assists do count, so that when we get out of the arena it's easier.

(Not going to be stingy on this - eventually it'll be at the level points where we don't to write up the killing of fifty different creatures. So just pretend and level up when you think you would level up. XD)

I hope this all makes more sense! Sorry again, I could've sworn by the seven that I covered that. xD Any more questions, please ask them! ^^ xx
(Congrats! You made it through the long post. You gets a cookie).

I trust you'll all make decently substantial posts that we can work off of when necessary. I won't make a word requirement. :P

EDIT -
First post up! Doesn't need to be as long as what I put out. XD You're welcome to start your character in Aramnia already. I didn't, due to a small time constraint right now, but if you so choose to your character will seamlessly wake up. It's as if they've aware that they're not in their real body, but it's not an active thought process.

Does that make sense?

Like, those things that you know exist, but you're not thinking about it enough to actually go, "Oh, that's what this is!" (Just like my little "goaticorn" rant this morning, where I was aware that goaticorn stood for goat unicorn, but then it finally clicked that's what it stood for. xD)

I don't know. I hope that makes sense. I just done reading my psychology book so I might be a little insane. :D

To Aviara - sorry, my bad. Whoops. Cool, two large swords users! Maybe they can bond over it :)

Ohh, so it's kind of like a ghost memory where it seems that the RL is like a dream of a dream of the Gamer characters who've inherited the Real Life peoples personalities?

Should we make a list for the abilities and spells we've got? (assuming that what you stated above is the number we've got for level 10.) Then continue adding abilities for the characters as they level up. :)

Also, since we don't have a ranged character, I can make a character for that role if you want. :)

Good luck with studies!

Re: There's No Way Out

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby CandyOrchird on Fri Feb 06, 2015 1:36 pm

Yeah, you've got the idea there. :3 (Put it in words that I couldn't think of XD)

Pfffffffft. So totally thought we did. Whoops! Uh, yeah, JackalopeLove's had a few days to get going on that, so if anyone wants to take that role you most certainly can! (Not required, as I can just move Favorin to be a melee carry and have one mage or some odd thing like that).

Level 10 would probably be around 5-6 spells/abilities depending on the class. Since near the arena is still pretty low level (I'm going to make a map for our Fellowship quest line, where we eventually hit the final battle), I'm not terribly definitive on lvl 100 spells and stuff right now. I mean, we won't want any godmoders, but we all want to make it alive >w<

Can probably put that list on the character sheet, maybe somewhere near the top so we don't have to scroll through everything to see them. I'll work on kind of a general ability list in a bit here. :)

If you really want to make the ranged, that's totally fine! I'm not going to say you need to or anything. It's all up to you.

Awesome , guys!! :) xx

I'm really excited. :3

(Now I feel bad for just kinda breezing through my character selection phase, but eh. xD)

I'll give CyborgMerlin a day or two more to get his post up before continuing. He can always catch up, just say it was a postal error. :P
Unless you guys want to get at it right away?

I say we wait for cyborgmerlin. :)

As for the ranged character, if Jackalope love doesn't respond by the time cyborgmerlin posts I'll make a character. I'm pretty cool with playing two characters :) (though I wonder if I'm being a dick by doing this...)
