    Calling all MP'ers

    Hello there. As you may have noticed, the MP forum has been quite quiet the past few months. I have been bouncing a few ideas off fellow forum members, thinking of a gg themed MP project, and by God we may have stumbled upon something great. But I'll get to this a bit later.

    First off, some of you may be wondering, what is a themed MP project? A great question. It's really the entire group following the theme throughout the game, and gearing and spending skills/stats accordingly. Here is a link to one done in the past.

    People were asked to volunteer in that project as well, but a common response was, "That looks really cool, but I don't have enough gear to do it. :sad: " If you're enthusiastic about a themed project, not having enough gear shouldn't be a concern. I'll gladly step in and help you get set up and ready to rock-n-roll!

    A problem that is relavent however, is time. I'd prefer people to be from the States or Canada, simply due to similiar playing times. But I can't say no to a dedicated Eastern hemisphere player. (Just know that the games may start a bit late.) I'm at [GMT: -7]

    Some of you are probably curious about the theme of this project. I'd love to tell you, but I'd really rather not and keep it a secret to the majority of the forum. If you are interested in a gg mp project, post in this thread, and I'll get a PM headed your way with all the juicy details. The first reaction to hearing juicy news is to tell lots of people, I just ask that you try and keep it hush hush.

    Any thoughts or questions you may have can be posted in this thread, or via PM if you feel more comfortable doing it that way.

    Re: Calling all MP'ers

    That was certainly a fun little project. I don't have the time right now to participate in this go-around but the themed group is a lot of fun. And if you get a good character name, you can make things like this:

    Code:
    Death's Death's Fathom 
    Dimensional Shard 
    One Hand Damage: 30 - 53 
    Durability: 50 of 50 
    Required Level: 73 
    Fingerprint: 0xb7931230 
    Item Level: ** 
    Version: Expansion 1.10+ 
    100% Chance to cast level 37 Blizzard when you Die 
    +3 to Sorceress Skill Levels 
    +20% Faster Cast Rate 
    Adds 24 - 38 Cold Damage Over 0 Secs (3 Frames) 
    -3% to Enemy Cold Resistance 
    +35% to Cold Skill Damage 
    Lightning Resist +29% 
    Fire Resist +35% 1 Sockets (1 used) 
    Socketed: Rainbow Facet
    
    Death's Death's Web 
    Unearthed Wand 
    One Hand Damage: 22 - 28 
    Durability: 18 of 18 
    Required Level: 66 
    Required Strength: 25 
    Fingerprint: 0xa623f30f 
    Item Level: ** 
    Version: Expansion 1.10+ 
    +2 to All Skills 
    +2 to Poison and Bone Skills (Necromancer Only) 
    -43% to Enemy Poison Resistance 
    +10 to Mana after each Kill 
    +9 Life after each Kill

    Re: Calling all MP'ers

    We've got a large number of people interested, and that's great. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling well today and wasn't able to get pm's or anything out like that. The idea came from ItnoZ, of a table, so I put together this table to try and help sort out what time will work best for everyone. I originally hoped to be able to play during the weekdays, but I think weekends only will have to be the case.


    Code:

    Nice, may not be reliable but at least we are getting an idea now. :thumbup: So what's the four horseman stuff anyhow? I would hope we won't get tight with rules and stuff plz.

    How many players are you looking for Zylo? I'm getting curious now as to the theme...

    For timing, Sunday mornings would be excellent as the wife takes the kids to church, so I have all morning to myself from 10 am on. If we can't do it then, it will need to be after the kids go down (>8pm PST).

    Not sure how quickly you were looking to get this rolling, but I fear my ISP may not be up the task of MPing, so I'm looking into changing ASAP.

    Added Omg and Chuun. to the table since I've been speaking with them via msn.

    Itnoz - It looks like the majority of the people could be around late Saturday. If we went with that you'd be playing early afternoon Sunday. Or if we play weekdays, you'd need to be on at around the 3:30-4:00p.m.

    The horseman theme was a Liq idea 6-9 months or so ago. We're not doing that theme, it was just something to link to get people thinking how a mp project works.

    The original theme I had picked was really only suitable for 4-5 players, so I'm scrapping that idea and going with plan-B. I'll finish up the PM to send off to everyone tonight, but I think it will be a welcome change considering you'll have a say in what you'd like to play, rather then being assigned a build. So in short, plan-B is gg.

    Since there are more people interested then there is room, I'm going to go off this table, if you're name is on it, you've got a spot. If not, there will be more mp shenanigans to come in the future. (There is room for one more player atm.)

    My msn is Canadian_Squirrel (at) hotmail (dot) com I'd prefer that we communicate this way, rather then through diii or any other means. (Just faster.)

    I guess ill have to pass on this, i dont think id be able to get overly sychronised time-wise with what seems like a mainly american group, maybe another time or with some euro folks.

    Got it! I would be far more reliable on weekends as 'possible' work keeps rearing its head. Anyhow, awaiting pm.
