Title: Nexus War: Gaming Steve Faction
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 10:28:29 am
www.nexuswar.com

Nexus War is a free browser-based massively-multiplayer online roleplaying game wherein characters and their factions vie for control over territory and power throughout several planes of existence. It takes about 10-15 mins of play each day (you have a limited number of actions which recharge during the course of the day).

As characters grow in experience and power, they discover that their every ethical action weighs against their soul. Those who persevere and are good may eventually ascend into angelhood while those who make evil their lot may descend, becoming a twisted member of the demonic horde. However, free-will is the dominant ethos, so many choose neither path, opting to study deeper, unaligned magicks and ways of combat.

It's an awesome game in the vein of UrbanDead, only much much better. If a bunch of people sign up, we can form a faction. Post your location(s), and we'll see if we can all meet up ingame.

Allright, I'll help. Just tell me where we will meet up, who else is joining in, how to do this, etc...

Best thing to do is check out the wiki (http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Main_Page). Look at the new player guides and the FAQ, then look through the skills and classes pages.

I'm currently inside a mansion at (4,4)... probably not for long though, I wasnt able to hide :(

My characters name is Samuel of Krakow.
I'm kind of aiming to be a good aligned character so I might have to create another character if you're planning on forming an evil faction.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 11:59:18 am
I already looked through a good deal of that stuff, and it seemes like something I would be good at. I mean how will we all meet up in game?

Right we can make accounts. BRB.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 12:02:42 pm
Let's make a Good faction (unless loads of people want to do something different), Seraphs and the other good classes are awesome.

My good character is at the power station in 10, 14. When we have a few people join I'll create the faction.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 08, 2006, 12:08:36 pm
Can neutral characters join aligned factions? I'd think they would... it would be cool to fight along side eternal warriors and the like.

Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 12:09:27 pm
How long is it supposed to take for your account to load?  ???

Yeah, they can.

Also, something strange seems to be happening to the server (this never happens, btw). That could be why it's taking some time.

The beauty of it is that you can have more than one character (3, actually). You can have one good, one neutral and one evil should you want. Or maybe all three evil. Or some other combination, whatever you want.

Daxx, what sort of route are you going to take your character down? Combat or magic? At this point I only have 5XP so my options are open and I'd rather do something different from you.

Aname... I think you can, I dont remember it sending an activation or varification email.

I was going to go down the Shepherd/Advocate path if we were in a faction - brilliant support charcter with a bunch of magic thrown in.

Well, I'm in. Character name is Vivec, and I'm at 11, 42. Maybe I should try to find Genesis.

I'm planning on following the magic route.

I guess i'll take the paladin path then.

wait, how do i recover AP? can i only move a certain amount each day?

DOH! I'll head to 28,40 we'll meet there.
I'm still going to do my support idea if you don't mind. Everyone meet at above cordinates. Okay?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 08, 2006, 12:40:59 pm
Since Daxx is the leader we should all go to him... I think you have enough people to start a faction now as well.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 12:42:32 pm
You recover one AP every 15 minutes. That means you can come back later and play again, but you can't just run around killing indiscriminately.

http://img490.imageshack.us/img490/4987/nexusmapfinal0gw.png

That's a map of the place; it's pretty big. It doesn't include Paradise (Heaven), Stygia (Hell) or the sewers, though.

Edit: I'll start a closed faction and start inviting you guys.

I'm still at my stated co-ordinates. I'll be there for a while, I'm currently earning XP by repairing the generators in the power plant. Currently, I'm trying to work out how to invite people (you think there'd be a big button saying "invite", wouldn't you?).
Title: Re: Nexus War

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:00:28 pm
I'm an idiot. I need to meet up with you ingame to invite you, I just realised.

Guys, watch your Morality scores. You can't join if you drop below -20.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: aname on June 08, 2006, 01:02:17 pm
wy? if i can't too bad. i am evil. >:D
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:03:51 pm
wy? if i can't too bad. i am evil. >:D

The way the faction works is that because it's good-aligned, we're allowed some (or all) of our characters to become Angels later on. It means we can't take people who are evil.

Don't worry, just create a second character if you want. You can have up to three (though only one in the faction).
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:04:34 pm
Ok, I'm on my way. (I'm gonna be the Medic of the group.)

Whats your charecters name though, and how to get XP without fighting?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:06:12 pm
My character's called Destero.

You can get XP by healing, fixing things (and breaking them), lockpicking, reading books, and shooting targets (get a can, you can set it up on a wall for target practice).

I recommend healing.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: aname on June 08, 2006, 01:07:42 pm
srry, i can't bring myself to be a good guy. :D i just won't join. we need an evil faction!
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:09:20 pm
But that takes up healing items, does it not?
Mabye I'll join that too.  ;)
The server is down again, is this going to keep happening?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:10:25 pm
It's the first time I've ever known the server to go down. Just unlucky, I guess.

Also, Aname, you can have two evil characters and one neutral one if you want (have the neutral one join us).
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:14:01 pm
Mabye its just bugged again. Who knows?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 08, 2006, 01:14:20 pm
Right. I'll be the melee type. I already struck lucky and scored a few hits off an evil character so my alignment is going up... I guess I'll need to get the old detect alignment skill later on.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:14:58 pm
As soon as I say that, it works again.  :-\
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:16:54 pm
Well, if you guys eventually make it over to me - don't worry about getting here today, we can all make our way towards the same spot eventually - then I'll invite you. Then we can lock down the surrounding area and make that little place of Northcamp Island our own.

I heartily endorse reading at least some of the wiki if you can. It tells you a lot about skills and character development and things.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:18:26 pm
I'm at 10,13 right now, but 10,14 is blocked off. Suggestions?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:22:20 pm
By a barricade? I guess you'll just have to go round.

I was thinking - we might want to set up a base near a hospital/pharmacy if we're going to be good. Any suggestions as to where?

Edit: I just jumped outside and it is a barricade. You'll have to go around it, I'm afraid.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:23:29 pm
There is one at 24,40/25,40

Just mentioning.

Edit: I'm inside which one are you?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: aname on June 08, 2006, 01:25:22 pm
when do i first lvl?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:26:04 pm
There is one at 24,40/25,40

Just mentioning

We can head over there once we've all met up, I guess. Maybe somewhere that's closer? [15, 33] seems a better bet for a stronghold because it's also near a mall and a police station (for weapons).

when do i first lvl?

You need 100 XP for your first level.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:27:02 pm
When you heal do you lose your item?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:29:14 pm
When you heal do you lose your item?

Yeah, you have to search for more in Hospitals or Pharmacies. It's still a good way to get XP, because the alternatives tend to be more dangerous or difficult.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: aname on June 08, 2006, 01:30:09 pm
GAH! it ain't working again!
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 01:33:08 pm
15,33 it is then. When will we head there. And what is your characters name so I know who you are?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 01:34:12 pm
Destero.

I'll head over later on when I have the AP. I'm off out now, but I reckon it'll be about 4 hours until I can head over anyway. See you guys in a bit. Read the wiki. Have fun.

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 02:06:58 pm
I'm guessing you only get XP for healing others?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 02:07:58 pm
Samog (the 80-xp, Thief-badged, lockpickin' mortal) is at 15, 32, van de Graff General Hospital (until I die, that is). It's full of people, though.

I have a padlock and a can of chicken soup, in case you need a can of chicken soup or something padlocked.

[15, 33] seems a better bet for a stronghold because it's also near a mall and a police station (for weapons).
They're always after me lucky spawns. (15,33) is currently occupied by The Juggernaut (1) and Friendly Lad (3), both of whom have hand to hand combat skills. The door is open, and the outer wall has some graffiti on it. Friendly Lad is part of an evil faction and has Martial Arts.

17,33, a house, is the stronghold of Crossroads Mall Survivors.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 08, 2006, 02:14:07 pm
Right, I'm thinking of taking a smithing skill at some point... armour and melee weapons would be most useful to me... I guess I'll go with armour... since that benefits everyone, regardless of skill.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 08, 2006, 02:35:28 pm
Good scouting. We'll take the house then. I know some of the guys at Crossroads, actually (they're from UD) and they shouldn't be a problem. I'll be over when I have the AP.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Vivec on June 08, 2006, 02:40:56 pm
Wait, which house? What are the coordinates?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 02:42:57 pm
17,33

Make sure we can all head there at the same time so we don't get beaten. I can only heal if you guys stay alive that long.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Vivec on June 08, 2006, 02:46:14 pm
All right, I'm here. I have a gun.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 08, 2006, 02:59:19 pm
Ok. So Vivec will be our de facto ranger. Dax and genesis will be support. I'm the melee guy. Samog strikes me as someone whos going to be a neutral character... no idea why.

Oh, and could you add the link to the map to the first post... maybe scrawl on a few markers to show where our base is and other points of interest.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Vivec on June 08, 2006, 03:00:34 pm
At 17, 34 there is a guy who is evil aligned. "Ythreil" So if you want to increase morality, you can get him.

EDIT: Oh, lovely. The servers just went down again, apparently.

EDIT2: Right as I type that, they go back online.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 05:59:53 pm
http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Caspian_Heights is where van de Graff General is.

The de facto stronghold is an apartment building, which has baseball bats, first aid kits, pistols, cell phones, and sunglasses: http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Locations/Detail#Apartment_Building
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 06:21:49 pm
What is our team called, and where should I wait?
There seem to be at least three meeting places.  ???
I'm inside the apartment at 15,33 if anyone needs healing.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 06:28:56 pm
There are two characters hiding in the apartment building. One's level 1 and evil (with hand to hand), and the other is level 4 and has First Aid, Hide, and Search.

Also, I've seen a few KOL players wander by van de Graff.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 06:41:10 pm
I'll just wait here for a while. Any ideas on how a good charecter can get XP?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 07:09:44 pm
What skill did you pick when you started? You can get XP by finding more medkits/locks/evil guys/whatever it is.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 07:18:12 pm
I'm the Medic, What do you think I picked!?!  :D
How can I do that?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 09:12:14 pm
Why do I keep getting killed?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 09:14:47 pm
It's probably because of your level and/or morality (if they have Sense Morality).

Check Hospitals and Houses etc. for medkits, then heal people (especially in hospitals) whose red circles are semicircles, all white, or all black.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 09:18:25 pm
I'll try, I'll post soon if it works.

I haven't gotten to do anything yet, morality is still at 0.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 09:40:09 pm
Mehow (evil, level 2, hand to hand) is in van de Graff General and trying to kill me, so yeah.

In a totally unrelated coincidence, I'm out of bullets, so I'll have to sit around the apartment building until I get more with which to kill our enemies.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 08, 2006, 09:42:54 pm
Oh, crap thats where I am, however there are at least sixty people there what are the chances? Should we make specific backrounds for our charecters or can we decide that on our own?

Vivec died painfully, so we're down two de facto rangers until Vivec gets here or someone gets their hands on a pistol.

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 08, 2006, 11:01:05 pm
There are a few people in the crowd at van de Graff General Hospital in Caspian Heights, (15,32), and our proposed stronghold is the Apartment Building one cell south, at (15, 33), which gives us access to guns and medkits from the apartments and medical supplies from the hospital. It (the neighborhood) also has a central location (surrounded by turf wars, yay), and a church, mall, fire department, mansion, restaurant, and pharmacy are all in Caspian Heights.
The mall and police department are a short distance away, if you can get through a barricade and the Oblivion Squadron.

So, are you interested in a timeshare?

(I think I'll make Samog a Wizard, then make a new character a Seraph (eventually))
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 09, 2006, 12:16:40 am
Ok. I'm in the hospital. If anyone has a spare melee weapon like a tire iron or chain I would appreciate it... although I didnt manage to hide so hopefully I wont get killed.

Edit: I'm now in the apartment that may eventually become our stronghold. For A team name I suggest we just go with action/awesome force Nexus Crew. Since someone took the initiative to write it on the wall ahead of time.

Oh, and anyone want to stage an expedition to the museum? I need to find myself a sword...
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 02:33:36 am
Everyone post your character names and come out of hiding so I can invite you. I've made it to the Apartments, and I want to set up our Stronghold as quickly as I can. We gotta be level 4 as a faction to have one.

Maybe we should rename them the Glicker Memorial Apartment Complex. ;D
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Samog on June 09, 2006, 02:48:20 am
Samog is in van de Graff General (not hidden), loaded down with all sorts of medical goodies.

The guy that was randomly killing people was beaten to death with a tire iron.

There's a level 10 Pariah killing people in van de Graff General. Interpret as you will.

Edit: Oh, by the way, this spot is on the edge of the Oblivion Squadron/Knights of L. Ron faction war. Fun fun fun!

Daxx: Well, I accidentally left the hospital. Being on the streets is much safer, right?

Can you nip inside the Apartments? I don't have any AP left.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 09, 2006, 03:57:59 am
You meanvisit the apartments, sure. Anyway, anyone know how to find spellbooks?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 04:00:18 am
You get spells in normal books (occasionally). You have to spend some time at libraries poring through books to find the spells you want.

Tell me when Dreamalynn gets there, and I'll invite you.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 09, 2006, 04:06:23 am
Allright I'm there. but who are the other two?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 04:08:21 am
You're invited. I have no idea who the other guys are. We'll kick them out when we create our stronghold (or, if they're evil, we can just kill them).
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Genesis on June 09, 2006, 04:14:47 am
UM... I seacched a bit, and I think we are in trouble. There are at least six more than I thought...
Freindly Lad is one, and there is a Lvl. 10 too. Yeah.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 04:17:24 am
Well, we can hide and kick them out later. Krakow Sam's got an offensive character, I think. Once we get a few more people in, we can just gang up on them one at a time.

Also, we need 30 Karma to build a stronghold. That means either 30 members, or we have to hit level 10 to start purifying or infusing the area with magic.
Title: Re: Nexus War

Title: Re: Nexus War

Head to the apartment building at [15,33]. Some of us are inside, when you get there I'll give you a faction invite.

Krakow Sam is an offensive character who only has a broken knife with a 10% chance to hit. If anyone has a spare melee weapon I would appreciate it.
I doubt were going to get 30 members... wed better get to level ten and start infusing... oh, and in the mean time we may want to scout out a location for a stronghold which isnt in the middle of a turf war... alternatively if the Knights of L. Ron are good aligned we could stay here and help them win.

Edit: Samuel of Krakow is now in the museum, so dont count on me to bail you out until I find a sword and get back to the apartment. I did find a book for 5XP though  :)
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 09, 2006, 05:26:39 am
Ok... if I dont find anything in the museum I'll take it. I think since I have melee skill itll translate to 30% to hit chance.

Edit: Hurray! I found a broken sabre. I'm definitely grabbing repair item as my next skill.

Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 08:22:03 am
So are we going to stay and clear out this safehouse or are we going to head on to somewhere new? I would vote to stay if we have the firepower to clear the building.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 09, 2006, 08:28:16 am
Itll take me a while to get back there but I have some firepower... if I start with 50 AP I sould be able to deal about 83 points of damage. Thats enough to kill at least one enemy outright and wound another.

No way. I know hes evil without having to hit him once to see. I cant pass up an opportunity like that to increase my alignment.

Edit: Good news everyone! One of my secondary characters found a scroll of ward against evil. Next time I'm nearby I'll give it to Daxx. Once he learns spellcasting we'll be able to keep the evildoers off our stronghold. Yay!

Anyone in the faction can invite you (I'm dead atm) by selecting you as a target and giving you a faction invite from the target panel.

Edit: that means you have to be in the same physical location as us, however.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 10:08:55 am
If anyone is there now then, post and let me know and I'll come out of hiding :)

I think you can do it hidden, actually (but don't quote me on that, I haven't tried it yet).

Awesome. Good job guys, we'll be on our way in no time.

Edit: Now I know why we've been having server problems.

Feck. I did too. I'm just going to let someone kill me in the hopes I respawn a little closer. I managed to get a few hits on an evil character for some XP and goodness before i ran out of AP though so thats a plus.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 09, 2006, 02:27:37 pm
I'm sure he can; I have no FAKs, otherwise I'd help him myself. He's only lost 8 HP, but it's enough to single him out as a target - anyone wandering through looking for an easy kill will pick him out of the crowd straight away.

But first, I want to get some more XP. Tal is a ranged combat specialist, just so we all know. If anyone has some extra guns, he can put them to great use.

Well, considering that it is impossible to buy anything in the game, I don't blame you.

Make sure the "Basic Actions" menu is open, then click "Search". If you are in places like malls, pharmacies, gun stores, etc., you may find some stuff.

I can use the toolkit to craft arrows now I have repair item... I'll need wood as well, of course.

I'll make my way to the apartment so you can make the trade... But I'm currently very far away and waiting for someone to kill me in the hope I respawn closer.

i'd like to note at this point that ranks are done purely by seniority at this point because I can't think of a better way to do it - if you level faster or put more effort in you're likely to get promoted (and, consequently, the reverse is also true).

Jake Anderson (level 1, morality 4, Lockpicking) tried to kick me four times (and missed each time).

After stabbing him, I now have the ability "Sense Morality" and can find different stabworthy people.

Also, locking the GamingSteve apartment is basically an invitation for evil characters to walk in and slaughter whoever's in the building.

Anyone have any idea why it is that I have a 35% chance to hit (I should hit more often than once every three shots), yet I can fire 12 shots and hit nothing? Just wondering. I shot at that level 10 Pariah a few times, so don't be surprised if I'm dead by the time you get around to trying to send me an invite. I'll get back on tomorrow (or later today) and try to get back to the apartment if I was killed. Which is likely.

So, see yahz.

Yeah, the hit percentages totally lie. I have a hit chance of 35% on one of my guys and I wasted 30 ap attacking some guy... I only hit him 3 times. Needless to say the guy I attacked him was dead about 2 minutes later... somehow the guy I attacked hit me 7 times in a row without missing  :o

Anyhoo, if anyone has any wood or gunpowder I can craft ammo. If you have any broken items I can repair them as well.

It's not a lie. Some characters have inherant dodge bonuses, especially the higher level ones. On top of that, it's pure luck whether you hit him or not. Don't expect to hit smeone 3 times out of 10 - you'll always find statistical clustering. For example, my evil character never seems to miss. You'll see runs of luck like that.

Morslok, head to the apartments, and someone'll give you a faction invite.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 11, 2006, 02:34:39 am
My evil char will head over at some point, but she's currently enjoying rather a healthy damage bonus from her current faction.

Also, getting XP from combat seems to be far easier than non-combat. I suspect that's why Krakow Sam is doing quite well.
Title: Re: Nexus War

Okay, I made it back (but couldn't finish Flossie off - she has 10 HP left). If anyone has spare quivers, give them to me. I have a broken knife for anyone that wants it and a pair of shotgun shells.

Flossie can do 6 damage per hit, with 65% accuracy. Dangerous.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 11, 2006, 08:26:05 am
I'll take the knife. I was going to run to the nearest factory but I decided to repay m0rty's treachery with the sharp end of a chainsaw. Now I guess I'll wait 'till my AP recharge.

We've only had a few OS members drop by, I believe.

Although I'd like to know what other people think. Given that at the moment we're pretty weak as a faction, we shouldn't be surprised that people wander through and randomly kill a member. Especially as we have no stronghold and no ability to cast wards (yet), this is going to be a problem for us for a while. Moving may not solve this.

Mortal
L1 Ranged Weapons
L2 Search
L4 Small Arms
L5 Sense Morality
L7 Long Arms
L9 Choose Advanced Small or Long
Myrmadon
L10 Repair Item
L11 Weapon Mastery
L13 Strong Attack
L14 Super Reflexes
L15 Improved Critical
L16 Meditation
Eternal Soldier
L20 Elite Attack
L20 Way of Earth
L20 Way of Air
L21 Way of Water
L23 Way of Void
L24 Way of Fire

I wouldnt bother with repair item... maybe get dodge or planar protection instead. Otherwise it lloks good.

Good plan, seems you're well organised.

I'm still not entirely sure how my character's going to pan out because I don't yet know which spells to take. I'm guessing something along the lines of:

Mortal
L1: First Aid
L2: Engineering
L3: Repair Item
L4: Ranged Combat
L5: Sense Morality
L6: Search
L8: Archery
Shepherd
L10: Cast Spell (free), Purify, 10CP for spells
L13: Prayer (I'm guessing this is 20CP but the wiki entry doesn't say), 15 CP for spells
L15: Heal, 10 CP for Spells
L17: Spell Combat, 10CP for spells
Advocate
L21: Cosmic Affinity, 30CP for spells
L22: Healing Aura
L23: Grace of Blood
L24: Wings
L25: Alchemy
L26: Planar Protection, 20CP for spells
L27: Advanced Hide
L28: Advanced Archery
L29: Strength, Stamina
L30: Sense Magic, Dodge - 10CP for spells

Any further CP from badges on Spells.

Spells I would like:
Blood Boil
The Crushing
Death Cloud
Reveal
Extended Major Ward vs Evil
Dispel Major Ward


And Ordo, I have no idea who you are - you literally just joined the forum. You could be anyone.

Edit: Though I guess maybe I could let you in without permissions for a while seeing as all our information is public anyway.

L10: Cast Spell (free)

Free? Do you get a free skill when you ascend or something?

Yeah, check this (http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Cast_Spell) out.

BTW I redid it - I didn't notice that the CP gain on levelling goes up at higher levels.

I didn't realize I had a limited number of actions I could do per turn or w/e so I left without having enough to come back. I will be there in 30 mins or whenever the points regen.

Okay, if you think so, sir.  I'll go with dodge at level 10 instead then.  That way, at ten, I'll be getting decreased chance of getting hit, and also the myrmadon's ability for critical hits.

Edit: Forgot to mention that I found 3 truncheons in the police station and have an extra revolver from earlier searches, I'll probably keep a truncheon as a backup, so if anyone wants one of the other 2 or the extra revolver, I will gladly give them to you.  Just say the word.

No problem buddy, it's just that I don't know you (maybe I'm a little paranoid on security - what does everyone else think?). I'll let you in as a soldier and after you've been on the forums for a while I'll promote you. :)

Edit: TBH, on reflection I think maybe I am being too paranoid.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Morslok on June 11, 2006, 11:11:15 am
In war, security is paramount, sir.  Spies are everywhere.  The enemy is always watching.  However, as this is a fairly new faction, I don't see anyone important taking an interest in our actions yet.  We don't even have a stronghold.  And, along that line, we need everyone we can get, so we can get a stronghold.  I say, welcome aboard, Ordo.

I want eventually to organise people into squads based on their level and participation in the game. I would guess after a week or so it should be come more apparent who those more deserving people are. For now, I think we'll be okay.

I should note here that organisation, such as it is, is based around threes. The lieutenants are in charge of the Medical, Combat, and Misc sections. Under them are three sergeants each and under them the rank and file soldiers. This of course is again likely to change, I'll probably promote a few more people after a while to higher positions, and give them more responsibilities as our membership expands.

Edit: people added to KOS list, link to badges put in

Can people come up with some good suggestions for custom ranks? I do like the idea of the Willist hierarchy but there are only two ranks there. I'll come up with something later, tell me what you think.

I think the lowest rank should be Peon.  It's a gaming related term, cause ever since WarCraft2 it's a common way of referring to a builder unit in an RTS game.  I'm not sure of the next ranks, you guys can fight that out amongst yourselves.

Ok. Add Frank Lloyd Wright to the kill list. Luckily a nice person healed me before I died so I'm still in the factory... repairing one level of damage on a sabre costs ten action points, would you believe, so I'll be there a while. Still, I'm about 6 XP off another level  ;D

Anyway about those ranks, how about titles from the position list (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=1546.0) on the forum?

We only have one title at each of the four ranks.

Also, I get better powers than Prayer. Like being totally immune to Unholy damage, or being able to heal 10hp per minute on all good characters in my location. Also lots of nice spells.

I would just like to say that I played Urban Dead for a while, and after around 2 weeks stopped playing.  I don't usually like zombie stuff anyway, but I think the real problem was the lack of group cohesion between the people on this board. (I found out about it from the Urban Dead thread.)  I think that as long as we keep eachother in the loop, and stick with the faction (which is another great improvement) this game won't get old as fast as Urban Dead did, for me at least.

Just saying.

Haha, it gets even better. There's proper faction combat being incorporated, with the ability to destroy another faction's stronghold to get extra honour and karma. On top of that, we'll be able to set up a base to defend Paradise, or go on raids to Stygia  and try to stake a foothold there. Then there's the overall good vs. evil vs. neutral thing going on.
Title: Re: Nexus War

At some point. It's only 10CP and we're not likely to be heading to the planes anytime soon, so you can wait awhile until you can afford to buy it without compromising your levelling.

Roger.  Does that mean that once we get a stronghold things will be different?  More organized?

Most certainly. But by then it will be pretty easy for people to go out and get XP, because people will have multiple sources and we can share out the non-XP tasks. On top of that we should have cool stuff like a faction safe, and we'll need to defend the stronghold properly against other factions.

How about the slum at 7, 32? It's a little further out of the way from OS, and it's next to a Pharmacy and a PD, near to a mall, and much closer to the available factories/gun stores. The one downside is that it's even further from a library.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Morslok on June 11, 2006, 05:11:12 pm
That it's far from a library doesn't matter much, as it is right below an elementary school, which also has books...  The only thing libraries have that schools don't is potions...  It looks good to me, I'll scout the place out for you guys.

Post by: Tal on June 11, 2006, 05:23:54 pm
Alright, so Tal left earlier to hunt up some ammo. He found a few speedloaders for his pistol and two shotgun shells for his shotgun. Unfortunately, he is stuck in the open one square away from our current HQ. If he dies, let's hope he respawns somewhere nearby.

On a different note, I created another character, this one called Abdul Alzhared. I intend for him to be a neutral spellcaster, but it has been a rocky start. He has died twice, but respawned right outside a library. He has found several potions and earned 25 EXP just from reading books. He has also gotten the spell Fire Darts, but can't learn it. Why is that?

EDIT: Add Leadfoot to the KoS list. He kept on slashing me with a knife, but luckily Destero healed me. If you guys want him, he's one square below HQ.

Just scouted the slum at 7,32, door was closed and locked, could be some lurking miscreants.  I went up and am currently hiding one block north in the school.  I figure if anyone searches it, they'll be looking for books, not weapons, so I may be safe for a while.  Will need someone to break in the door if we want to stronghold the place.  FYI.

This could be our first organized op, pick the lock, everyone storms the place, if there's any resistance, we can squash it mercilessly.  Or mercifully, whichever you prefer.

Edit: The spot is 8 blocks away from the apartment, but we could all regain our aps at the school before storming the place.  Just a suggestion.

Edit2: Does searching bring one out of hiding?

When you get to the apartments at [15,33] someone will give you an invite. If you can't make it, just hide out somewhere as close as you can get. You'll get 1 AP every 15 minutes.

Read the wiki a bit and the newbie guides, and they should guide you through most of it. If you've got any questions, just ask.

Awesome, we're getting stronger!

You should get a notification. Hit the Map button on the top panel.

Edit: By the way, you can create up to three characters, and you can delete characters. If you want, you can make a character as a test, run around and do a few things, then delete him again before settling on the one you want to play with.

LadyM, head North West until the column is 15 and the row is 33 and you'll be okay.  If you use the map (located on the first post in this thread), you can plot a course that gets you there using only 15 or so APs.

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 11, 2006, 06:48:31 pm
Well, lots of things. You progress in the game by getting XP. These give you levels and Character Points, which you can spend on skills. You're a medic, so the easiest way for you to get XP is by healing injured people. You've got a First Aid Kit, and you can find more in the hospital to the north. When you use those on an injured person, they get health and you get XP.

Searching allows you to find items in a location (and sometimes hidden people as well). You search in various types of buildings to get various items, from clothing to guns to first aid kits to lockpicks to flashlights to batteries and all sorts. There are also many ways to get XP.

LadyM, I sent you an invite as well. You're best bet for earning XP is by finding locked doors and unlocking them. You can both do other things as well, like reading books if you find them or by attacking people (I don't recommend combat, btw, it's a waste of AP for you guys).

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Tal on June 11, 2006, 09:58:16 pm
Nah, actually I kinda think we should have the KoS list be populated by anyone who attacks us in and around our area of operations. This way, not only can we eliminate people who might be a threat to weaker characters, we can also prioritize targets for XP and eventually make them learn that our faction means buisness!

Just people who assault or kill a member or know our location (that one may be a little too paranoid) are added, and as you can see they have time limits on each.  The people who know our location have 1 week on the list, those who assault members get 2 weeks, and if you kill someone from our crew and see you within 3 weeks, you dead.

If you can, you should see if you can get their faction name.  I'm not saying declare all out war on every faction that attacks us. But we should watch to see if a certain faction is attacking us more then another.  We should establish a threshold so they have to have X kills in y amount of time before we consider that faction for KoS.  I don't think this is anything we need to worry in the immediate future, but it can be easy to make enemies, so we might want to start keeping track of who we're ticking off.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on June 12, 2006, 01:29:47 am

thats raising karma and to raise karma increase members and infuse areas
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Danzik on June 12, 2006, 11:56:18 am
Ok, currently we have 18 Karma. 
We need 30 Karma to build a stronghold.
So either 12 more members (1pt each) or we get a few chars to level 10 and start infusing locations (5pts each).

Infusion
Infusion is one method of increasing your faction karma. However, performing infusion requires a tier 2 class with the appropriate skill. These skills are, at present, the Shepherd and Paladin's Purify, the Sorcerer's Infuse, and the Defiler's Corrupt. Performing any of these skills costs 1 Action Point and 1 Magic Point, and can only be done outside. Defiler's have a special ability, Salt the Earth, that allows them to infuse inside locations under special circumstances. Some Planes cannot be infused and certain locations, such as the sewer or sea, cannot be either.

Hey guys, me and Samog where on the chatroom last night, and thought it might be a good idea to have an IRC channel.  So I set one up.  irc.gamesnet.net channel #gamingsteve
If you need a client program, you could use XChat: http://xchat.org/download/
Just a suggestion, any opinions are welcome.

I dunno...ajax is so much easier and doesn't require an install.  I'm going to stick with the ajax for now.

Don't listen to me...

If anyoe has some extra revolver speedloaders, I could use some.  It seems all I am able to find is Truncheons in police stations.

On that note, if someone needs a truncheon, I've got 3 extras.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: OrdoSanguis on June 12, 2006, 03:54:17 pm
Thanks for the truncheon Morslok.
I have melee fighting as my skill, and I don't know how to level without killing anyone. Is there a better way to gain morality instead of losing it?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Morslok on June 12, 2006, 04:28:54 pm
No problem.  Attack evil people.  That's one way to get good morality.  There are also certain way to get xp which don't give morality points like reading, and shooting cans.

Edit: Daxx, I put Lualmoba in Samuel of Krakow's squad, so you can update the front page.  FYI

I know this sounds messed up, but would it be okay if Vivec attacked a few of you? It could give XP for the medics, I know how hard it is for them to get it. I wouldn't kill you, probably just attack until I got one hit in.

Dont be afraid of death. For now, roam far from the apartment, lash out at any soft targets you happen to see (but stop if your morality decreases). Get a combat skill at lvl 2 if you dont have one already.

I tried that, I got stuck in a restaurant with a evil guy who used all his AP killing everyone else. I logged on to see I had 22 AP to use on that guy. 10 arrows, 6 attempted punches, and a useless kick later, I didn't hurt him at all (at which the point I ran)  Right now I might just stick with healing since it's a 1:1 ratio for XP.

You need to decide which of Anyman and Everyman you want in the faction, and get the other one out of there. You can't have both, because you'll start incurring the zerging penalties and you'll take honour dings as well which might affect our karma.

And Jackson killed me.

EDIT:  4 more damage on the person.  I hope they don't beat me up.  They fled.

My mule got killed by an angry homless person!  He had a good rifle too.  Which makes sense since I was in the gun store.

Acknowledged.  New recruits will be made peons from now on, until (and if) you see fit to promote them.

Edit: If a little tower icon in the upper right corner of a square signifies a stronghold, there is one at 17,33.  2 away from the apartment.

I also think I saw 2 in the wrench, not sure where exactly. 9,32 and 9,34 I think.

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Morslok on June 13, 2006, 12:55:42 pm
Okay, let's see here...

How do I join a channel with the IRC plugin?
    First create the account, then sign on. After you have signed on, you can use File->Join A Chat on the buddy list to join a channel. In any window, either a conversation or a chat, in which your IRC user is the sender, you can also use /join to connect to a new channel.

I assume that you enter irc.gamesnet.net when you create the account.  When you use the join a chat function, type in #gamingsteve.

If that doesn't work, ask Danzik.  I think he uses Gaim.  I don't.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Oviraptor on June 13, 2006, 12:57:11 pm
Well, the problem is that I can't create an account, it rejects my email, which is correct, so I don't know why it is rejecting it.

Edit: what program are you using?

Double edit: figured it out, incorrect instructions.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Morslok on June 13, 2006, 01:03:01 pm
http://xchat.org/download/

It's pretty easy to use, when you open it a server window pops up, click on gamesnet, when thats open click the server menu and select join channel and type in #gamingsteve.

I see you got yours working, but I'll still post this in case other people want to see it.

Now, I know the two factions there. One is the Wang Collectors, who are good and therefore friendly to us. The other is the Shining Ones, level 7 Evil faction. Could be a problem there...

Master Daxx, I ask permission to represent the GamingSteve faction as a diplomat while I wander the map. I will deal specifically with good and neutral factions, and attempt to establish good relations with them as allies and friends. I will help get our name out there and get us on the (no pun intended) good side of our fellow good factions. Anything I do, however, would be authorized by you and I would consult you before making any diplomatic moves.

To the glory of GamingSteve!

http://www.silverex.org/download/

It's an unofficial free version, but the thing itself is open source so it's totally legal.  In fact, it might be illegal to make someone pay a shareware fee for it, since some of the code isn't even the creators.

Go ahead. We need allies.

As for other factions, we have these options:

1. We find somewhere that's nowhere near anyone else. That means no resource buildings.
2. We infuse the heck out of anyone else who dares to come near us.
3. We destroy their stronghold (if they're evil)

Good job clearning out the apartment, btw.

Also: from now on, I'm only going to bother putting people on the KOS list if they kill you in or around our apartment (the hospital doesn't count), because otherwise our list is going to start getting huge. Is there anyone who needs to be on the list, therefore?

Not many have dared attack us when we're all gathered together so far. I can't think of any names anyway.

Does anyone plan on using spells? (http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Category:Spells) I have two I don't need; Tiger Claws and Ice Dart, I don't really need anything in return at the moment, more pistol speedload clips are always welcome though if anyone who wants the spells has a couple spare but nevermind if you haven't.

Oh and I've decided on my class (probably, subject to change ;D) Paladin and then Seraph eventually.

Heeeey! I called seraph. You can be a divine champion or something  ;)

Good News! I got this one installed and set up. With one click I can join the channel. I is happy now.  :)

update: I am in the Nyquist School reading, I found some light armour which I'm wearing. I also found a spell. "The Crushing" but it won't let me learn it. How do you learn spells? I still only have 10 XP level 1 so I'm pretty useless at the moment.

Did you type in the whole thing?  irc.gamesnet.net not irc.games.net

Genesis, try the very last link I provided (the one LadyM replied to).  It's a very good program and has GamesNet right on the server list already.

Maybe you can try that too Daxx.

Then just join channel #gamingsteve and you're in.

Right. I'm back at the apartment. If anyone has any fuel cans or swords I'll gladly take them. If anyone wants my spare chainsaw, just say... oh, and if anyone has melee weapons I'll set up all the food cans and booze bottles I have to help people level up.

Yes, I did. mIRC even has it listed as a channel. I'm simply getting no response from their end. I don't want to add yet another IRC program, so I'll keep trying.

Edit: Swerv, thanks for the bow and arrows, buddy! That's awesome, now I should be able to level up a bit quicker. Do you need any shotgun shells?

Hey, Krakow, if my evil character were to give you his sword, would you fix it for him? Tal also has a bottle of gunpowder, if you'd make me some pistol ammo, that'd be great!

I wish Crafting gave Xp and that buildings didn't have a general search of 30% or less, making them 70% nothing.  Instead of doing it smart, making the items percentages instead.

Alright, assuming you have the newest version of Trillian, Open the Trillian menu, connections, manage connections, press add new connection, IRC, type in (in this order):
Gamesnet
irc.gamesnet.net
*your nickname*
*whatever*
*whatever*

That ought to do the trick.

Instead of using the channel search, type in /join #gamingsteve in the command line.

Are you saying that's enough?  I mean Oblivion Squadron has 506 members. Now I don't expect us to get anywhere near there but we definately need more if we want to make a presence for ourselves and to stand up against those sorts of numbers. Granted there is a big leap from the ones with 60 members to the ones with 200+ I'd still like maybe 45? personally.

No. We have one character per account and that's it. If we accept multis, then we lose karma big style. And I'm not going to condone cheating by creating more accounts.

Did 'a kitten' get added to the KOS list because of killing me or someone else? Because the evil monkey killed me aswell.

The kitten needs to have it's head stamped on and then thrown into the trash.

(no kittens were harmed in the making of this post... yet)

It was you. I scared him off by inflicting about 7 damage on him as I noticed you were dropping in health, but it wasn't enough to stop him finishing you off I'm afraid. Coward ran away afterwards, though, so I may have saved other people from harm.

Oh yeah I'll be placing all that Go juice for chain saw action in the strong hold anyone looking to tear any demons a new one feel free to take as you need.

Title: Re: Nexus War

Attack evil guys. (I have a character with sense mortality in the hospital, I can tell you who to attack in there). Also healing or repairing gives you good morality points.  But unless you have first-aid or repair it's easiest just to attack evil guys.

add: Gorthax (level 4), Tester (level 8 ) and TommyB (level 2) are evil in the hospital. I just got  40 XP swinging at Gorthax with an alt. I might have used up 50 AP to do it but I onl need to do that a few times to get level two.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: werechicken on June 17, 2006, 08:34:56 am
how do you get sense moraltity?
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Interitus on June 17, 2006, 08:57:18 am
When you level up you can buy a skill (if it costs 10 points)(some skills cost 20 points, so you would have to level twice to purchase them). Sense morality is a 10 point skill you can buy. It adds a little bubble next to the health of characts showing if they are aligned with good, neutral or evil.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 17, 2006, 09:11:09 am
But I would recommend you get a combat skill at level two (if you dont have one already). You can 'sense morality' in a way, by taking a swipe at another character. If your morality goes down when you hit then he or she is good or neutral and you should stop attacking. If it goes up then keep at it until they die or you run out of AP.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: OrdoSanguis on June 17, 2006, 09:19:28 am
Another way that I've found is a good way to tell is to look at their skills and their faction name. If they are in Faction "Ultimate Evil Squad Guys" and their skills are Melee combat and Ranged combat, it's a pretty good bet they're evil.
I also just took 8 HP off of Tester in the hospital, and I killed another evil guy named Armedes or something like that. I'm almost level 4 now :)

Heal people, and attack evil people. Repairing things is good as well.

Awesome, I just had the greatest running battle with Tribble, I shot at him and he ran off, then I headed to the hospital and saw him in there so I attacked him again and scared him off. Kickass.

Edit: there are a couple of injured people in the apartment now, and I have run out of ammo for my bow. If you have spare quivers, drop them off in the safe.

Actually I might have a soloution. You can squeeze another 10 CP out of exploration badges. (I also got the eating badge but I didn't get a CP for it, so I don't know if any other badge types give CP).From the badge locationson the first page I marked off on the map the best way to get an additional 10 points.  I'll have to warn you though it will take you to places quite far, and I honestly don't know whats out there. Also I can't promise every location will give a badge, luckily I haven't used up all the locations for this trip and there is some to the south of us  It is also going to use maybe 150 or so AP for the whole trip. So decide if you really want to do this. Finally I don't know if this is the most efficient way, I didn't spend a lot of time working on it, so if someone sees a better way, by all means offer up a suggestion.

Make sure to use diagonal crossings to cut down travel time. Also remember that you need to search the area to get the badge and that some locations require for you to enter a building, the the first page to see which ones.  From the apartment (15,33) head to 18,25. From there head to 15,23. From there go North, cross Hammerstrom Bridge and Wright's Hollow Bridge.  Once your off the bridge head NE to 16,12 which is a forest. From there head to 15,10 which is part of Northcamp University.  After that head to First Ridleyton Church 17,6.

 At this point You've most likely used around 40 or so AP (this is a rough estimate.) If you want a safe place to camp out until you get your AP back head to Chafin Memorial Hospital at 14,8.

There are two ways to go from here. I can't promise anything. You can go VERY far North where there are two more badges, but it is very out of the way. You can make up those two badges from sites to the south of us, but personally I'd rather use those as back up's in case a place doesn't give you a CP. So I'll give you the direction to head north.

From Chafin Memorial Hospital (14,8) [or wherever you logged off] head NorthWest to Katherine Cemetery at 7,2.  Then head SouthWest to a Mansion at the tip of the island at 4,4. From there backtrack around the bay to an apartment at 6,12. From the Apartment head south over Wallace Bridge to Wallace Airport. There are badges there at 3,19 and 2,20.  Going with the assumption you have to enter almost each building search, and leave you should be near 50 AP.   I have a feeling the airport isn't the safest place, but see if you can find somewhere with people who look friendly.

That should be your 10 badges and you can head south over Wallace bridge and back to 15,33.

If for some reason all these locations don't give a CP or if you don't want to go the extra long north route. There are two nearby badges to the Southeast at 23,37 and 20,38.

There's a lot of unknowns. I'm saving my AP right now to try the trip, I'll edit the information as I get it.  If someone knows of a place that doesn't give a CP or I have the wrong location, someone please fill me in. I plotted this quite quickly so I'm not sure entirely how accurate it is. Again this is a long trip, so make sure you want to do it


Edit: So far I've found out this.
15,12 has no babdge you can search for, I assume you have to go through the portal.
The university you can search for the badge outside the building
Like the forest the First Ridleyton Church has no badge, I again assume you have to go through the portal.
Kathreine cemetary can be searched from the outside.
4,4 has no badge, or even a portal I can see for that matter.
6,12 is currently infused and locked. (I'm not sure why this one requires swim since the tile is landlocked and in the mainland.
The badges at Hammerstrom Airport work fine.
 So far this island seems to be much less crowded. The hospital I stayed in is much less safe. There has been eight deaths. two were good guys killing evil guys, four were evil guys killing evil guys and two were evil guys killing good guys. the less populations on greater presence of evil characters does no mean a hospital is a safe place. People log on less often and heals are given out less.  overall I'd say this island is much more violent from what little I've seen of it. There is also a definate larger number of evil characters.

it might be worth throwing up some barricades around the general area (incorporating resource buildings and the like) later, but for now I think we're okay, and certainly not around the one block of our stronghold.

Alternatively it would be quite amusing to barricade an opposing group inside their own stronghold.

I guess some get greedy and use all their AP's attacking people and forget to save any to go somewhere safe.

If you're at a lower levels it doesn't matter so much if you die - you'll probably spend fewer APs respawning than you would finding somewhere safe to hide.

On a different note, I'm finding that Destero is my slowest-levelling character, which is really weird. Maybe I should stop babysitting you guys and go out to get some XP.

After you target a player, by clicking on their name. Look (click on) at the "Target" tab which is up next to the Map, Inventory and Scratchpad tabs. It will give you the target's character information, including what skills they have.

As for xp, I made an alt with Sense Morality and put them in the hospital next to our stronghold and used it to identify evil chars, and then used my main to go in and attack them.

Hmmm. A form of multi abuse which is impossible to punish. Good job  :D

Oh, the OS knows about us. But they wouldn't dare attack any faction below level 8. MAJOR honor loss and an incredible karma hit. You wouldn't believe the devastation it would have. Those sweet bonuses they get? Gone. But that's only if they kill a faction 2 or more levels below them.

They can kill us all, but they won't dare take our standard. The idiot who does will be summarily killed, banned, then killed whenever seen again. So, yeah. We can piss them off all we like. And if they do take our standard, getting their karma-based bonuses back will be a living nightmare. Because they're so big, there are VERY few factions close enough in power to get them honor boosts. Namely, DARIS and the CDF. And both of those are well-organized and heavily defended. Moving 200 OS members close isn't easy, and they would likely be counterattacked.

I fight dirty, but not that dirty. Though, if someone else wants to do it with a free slot, have at it. But it'll take a lot to get past our ward. But, if we cleared out the stronghold, let the turncoat break down the ward and take the standard...well...It only costs us 24 hours without a stronghold, Daxx 30 AP, and the rest of us no safe place to sleep. But the OS loses 250 karma or something like that.

We have no reason to smear our name. Sure they might never find out, but if they do? That's just a cheap tactic and we have no reason to bother. OS might not even bother us. I'd rather we didn't antagonize the 624 member faction unless we really really have to. Leave OS to fight RRF, D.A.R.I.S or Knights of L. Ron.

If we want to start an all out faction war lets do it with someone closer to our level so we don't have to stoop to near cheating tactics. And that's not even something we should be considering until the majority are at least past level 10.

Alright, little bit of information for you guys. The OS is huge, we all know that, right? However, there's one thing you should all know about them. Their burgeoning faction is filled to the bursting with freeloaders who are just there for the factional bonuses associated with being on the biggest team. Though they may have 600 members, of that, maybe 100 participate regularly on the boards, and of that 100, maybe 35 of them are on IRC with and sort of regularity either. What does this mean? It means that there is hardly any way for the OS to coordinate efficient attacks. Recently, through the use of faction mail and in-game speeches in the stronghold, however, they are beginning to organize raids and attacks, as can be seen through the recent fall of the KoLR.

In reality, if you are attacked by an OS member, then it's probably just another freeloader. However, there are quite a few hardcore members who will exact revenge and who do keep tabs on other factions. But, in short, the OS is not our for our blood, and probably never will be. If our growth rates remain the same, then we have little to nothing to worry about from the OS. We should simply view them as a distant evil that overlooks our existence. Be thankful for that, also. However, we should focus our attention on other, smaller evil factions. I see The Shining Ones as a good target...

Note: I think we should start moving this kind of discussion to a more secure form of communication. Some factions use member-approved only message boards. Just a suggestion.

That's why I suggested the IRC channel in the first place.  However, it seems that most people haven't come on, or have come on once and not come back.  Right now, the only regulars are myself, Twiggs, Tal, Interitus, Danzik, LadyM and some people not even in the faction (on the IRC-Chat server anyway).  Two of my immediate subordinates have not even signed in (even though I sent them faction mail).  Our recruitment has stagnated, and we aren't keeping in touch other than here on the forums.  We should all use the IRC channel to talk about secure faction matters, and to coordinate our movements (when it comes to that point).

In reply to Mors I'd like to urge poeple to use DALnet. I know some members have had trouble with Dalnet via xchat. I tried it and had no problem so if there is someone more familiar with xchat  do you have any suggestions. Or anyone here using xchat, explain your problem.

Ah I'm so close to leveling up and the site goes down for Maintenance so I want that sense morality so I can stop hitting the good guys.

Incase anyone was wondering it was me who went out to the power plant to restore power to the neighbourhood.

Also, can I get an invite? Is our faction non-evil only, 'cos I'm -3 at the mo. This game's really slow 'til you can get some CP.

You can't be -20 to join I think. Our faction is good. To get an invite you have to be in the same area as someone in the group I think. Maybe if you can get near the apt and post, someone can go and give you one. What is your character name?

It's Calqhoon. I'm dead at the mo (Valhalla seems to be my 2nd home), just waiting til I've got a good wad of APs 'til I respawn. I was actually outside the apt a while back but I don't think anyone was online. I'll see if I can walk to the apt later today. It'll be within the next 5 hours, 'cos I probably won't be fit to do anything after watching England's world cup game.

Well, LadyM, The reason for that is it's kinda hard to talk about a game that you play for 30 minutes a day tops for more than 2.  Also, we can't really talk about team strategy unless everyone is there (especially Daxx).


I'm at 40/39. I found a sewer grate so maybe that is the way out. I'll stick around and see what I can find though. I might have to dump some of the crappy thngs I'm carrying though. And I can't remember who killed me this time. I'm sure I was an easy target.

Go south.  There is a bridge to the mainland on the south side of Fort Tague.  Then make your slow meandering way north and west till you get to 15,33.  Also, use the map in the first post for minimum AP wasting.

Hey guys, Kiev the leader of the Wrecking Crew, is currently attacking our stronghold.  Killed Tal then me.  Don't know if he plans to destroy the stronghold, but their faction is only 1 level above ours...  Also, their faction is a 4 member, level 3 faction, with 23 karma.

This is their description:
Karma? Honor? Stronghold? None of those are for us. We go around taking down strongholds which happen to be on our way, no matter the level. See annoying stronghold which you think you can take down? Attack it, kill everyone inside, and claim the standard. Expect to be hated, not loved. We are here to see strongholds crumble.

That won't be a problem, as the choice has already been made.  Our stronghold is no longer in existance.  We now need to increase our karma to level 4 to get a stronghold again.  Or we can wait till 1.0.8 is implemented and hope we can build a new stronghold right after it is up.  In any case, we should move our meeting place to some new location.  I have no ideas as to where that should be, but I'm sure someone will find some suitable location...
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Interitus on June 20, 2006, 10:39:26 pm
I think we should try and make it near a hospital. It's hard keeping enough FAK's, healers and everything else. a Hospital is a nice place to drop in on. We should try and avoid attractive areas like places near schools, police stations museums and especially gun stores or factories.

Having a look at the map the hospital at 17,18 was pretty quiet when I was there. The island is really used to just move from North and South, people don't usually spend periods of time there so it might be safer.

Just read back a bit... it was rogue element which took our stronghold.

Anyway, I'm against moving. I like our location. We neednt be right next to the hospital but that area is good, near to factories, near to a museum. Its fine...

Or maybe we can move our stronghold right next to one of the new warp points and start exacting tolls from evil characters which try to get past  :P

The safe and everything in it will reappear if/when we reinstate the stronghold. Don't worry. However, I'm fairly sure we're going to have to get our next stronghold legitimately.

Gave us a nice taste of what having a stronghold is like, though. Gives us something to work for.

Well if we decide on one and you can't connect to it, it will be your own fault. We're trying to find one everyone can connect to, so we need to make sure people can. The only way to make sure people can get in is to have them try. We're trying to do this without having to move many people.

 So we're introducing small groups of people seeing if we hit a snag, and if we do, seeing if we can fix it, if not we try a different server.  Don't worry we'll make sure all current members can access it, but they need to be willing to test multiple servers until we find the one that works for everyone. Above all people need to remember until it is announced no server will be considered "The Official Gaming Steve Chat Server" Until it gets cleared by those of us working on this.

You don't actually realize how fun Nexus War is until you can't play it. The desire to burn through my AP and wait for them is killing me. I especially like how it brings the gamingsteve forum closer together, so I submit this fo you to look at. (I stole it from the Nexus War forum)

Shartak - http://www.shartak.com/. Similar to Urban dead and Nexus War.  The description for it is extremely long so I'll cut it down a bit
Quote
The game is based on a huge island,  you can start as "native", "outsider" or "pirate".  Each starting camp has different classes like shaman, warrior, scout, villager or scientist, soldier, explorer, settler etc. A special thing is that you may choose to play as a ghost who haunts the living, there is a special skill tree that is open to all.

It's apparently of a less "intense" game as Nexus War but is more open ended.

I think it sounds intersting.

Space Cowboy Online - http://sco.gpotato.com/, This might be a bit less appealing to people since, although free, you do have to download the client. Some people haver slower connections or don't completely feel easy about downloading things.  The description goes like this
Quote
Space Cowboy is a free MMO space shooter. When you start out you need to choose from 4 different gears, then you fly around blasting monsters. Once you reach level 11, you have to choose between two warring factions,ANI and BCU. Then after you reach level 25 or so, you get to take part in awsome Nation Wars.
My biggest complaint about this game, is that although free you can pay  to buy better things, a practice I hate. Although it does look graphically nice (considering it's free)

Have a look, does either interest anyone? It's some we can do while our AP regens.. any thoughts?

If you play you'll see all the things people write about you and you'll go fleeing into the night thinking we're a bunch of obsessed fans who just happen to name their faction after your website.. but we're not!

Damnit, I just read about 6 books without gaining any XP (about half my AP gone), then spent my remaining 20 odd AP on whacking randoms with my axe and STILL didn't gain any. That sucks. On the plus side, I seem to have found the one place nobody will try to kill me; a bookstore :P

Noooo. If youre going for divine champ then get melee combat (youll also want to get thrown weapons later to make use of the car and fireball throwing abilities). Getting a combat skill which doesnt depend on ammunition is a good move anyway.

You are invited too. You have to stay good though. You get more AP as time goes by. I think its one for every 15 mins. It really limits your movements every day.

Yeah the hospital ran out of bad guys, and I literally used 40 AP running around the area looking for one guy with negative  morality.. I didn't find anything, methinks we need to start thinking about where to move to again.

I think the XP nerf for 2nd tier characters is too harsh. I think second tier chars should get maybe 1/2 XP from attacking tier one characters (meaning they would favour any present 2nd tier characters over newbies for attacking). Third tiers would get no XP for attacking 1st tiers but would get 1/2 XP for attacking 2nd tiers.

Or at the very least make the kill bonus higher than 1 XP. I wouldnt mind getting no XP for just attacking if I got a fat bonus at the end (maybe higher bonuses for attacking chars of opposite alignment: A Paladin who kills an evil mortal would recieve a 10XP bonus but if he kills a neutral or good char he gets no bonus. A Pariah would get a bonus of 10 for killing a good mortal but nothing for neutral or evil mortals. A Myrmidon would get 5XP bonuses for killing a mortal of any alignment. Attacking oppositely aligned chars of ones own tier would maybe give a nice 20XP bonus.)

To sum up: I want more XP!!!

here's something else to annoy you, when a tier 1 charactor attacks a tier 2 charactor they receive 25% more exp, I'm not sure how much more you get when you kill one, I'll have to carry on attacking him and hope he doesn't get back to his game for a while

He came inside, and I ran outside and hid in some place nearby. Then when he had wasted his AP searching, I went back and hit him some more.

As long as everyone has plenty of ammo and some of the advanced or further advanced combat skills (advanced martial arts, fencing, advanced long arms... whatever) it shouldnt even depend that much on level. I'd be up for it.
I'm guessing wed have to do a fair bit of preperation... hide en mass in buildings near the enemy stronghold, wait for our AP to recharge and then make a coordinated rush on their ward and the people inside... I'd suggest that the lower levels attack the ward, freeing up the stronger people to take out the enemy inside.

The following is stolen, but helpful info.

Just a quick reminder for those of you with engineering. If you are around the stronghold, please check and make sure that the lights are on. When they're off, search percentages go down, making it harder to get the materials (mainly plastic) that our craftsmen need to make armor for us. I know it might not seem worth it to spend 5 AP for that, but it's actually a big help, as searching gets a 10% boost in a powered building. In a factory such as our stronghold, that means the following:

Daytime search in powered building: 40%
Daytime search in unpowered building: 30%
Nighttime search in powered building: 30%
Nighttime search in unpowered building: 20%

So to sum that all up, if we have people that keep the lights on and everyone tries to conduct there searches in the daylight hours (game-wise), we can double our chances of finding much needed resources. As a side note, these percentages are the same as those at the hospital, for those of you out looking for FAKs. For those interested, the full list of search percentages by building is at : http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Hide_and_Search_Chances
10% bonus for power, 10% penalty for nighttime



And a point of interest, Jorm announced evil characters outnumber good character 5-1 I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But one thing I do know is the number of bad guys in and around the hospital is skyrocketing.

That's the thing, I have been in a hospital, my first three deaths were in the hospital beside our old stronghold so I tried moving, got killed, started heading back to another hospital when I respawned, was killed on the way, started heading back to yet another hospital after repsawning, I'm not right outside the hospital door waiting for my one AP so I can enter. But the really worst part of it all, all this death has been draining my AP and I'm 6 XP away from level nine.

YAY!!
post your profile information link(click on your name) and someone will send you an invite to the faction. The faction is good so we try to kill the evil people.

Depending on what skill you chose, you try to gain Experience points (XP) by doing whatever your skill was, reading books, healing people and such. If you chose a combat skill you gain points by trying kill people. However if you kill good people then you get negative morality points (not a good thing). Killing evil people give you positive morality. It's hard to tell who is who until you can sense it.

When you get 100 XP you can choose another skill. That happens each time you level. You only have 50 action points (AP) a day to use and it is slow to regenerate so it doesn't take too long each day.

This seems a bit more in depth than Urban Dead, I can't tell. I didn't find anything searching until I went into some house, then I found a cowboy hat, baseball bats and a bunch of other cool stuff. Are diamond earrings used for anything besides wearing? (Like pawning?)

No, diamond rings have no actual value except to make you look like a Gangsta.

If youre having trouble searching try doing it when its daytime (The time of day is displayed by sun and moon icons in one of the navigation panes) I think you have a 20% greater chance of finding something during the day.

You read the book. The book is a novel that explores the depth of the human condition without ever explaining what the phrase "depth of the human condition" means. In other words, it's complete gibberish. Hidden in the pages of the book, you find a spell! The spell is named Fire Dart. You carefully pocket the parchment for later examination.

When this spell is cast, an amount of magical fire will be shot at the target. This attack will automatically hit. It is an attack spell.

It's specifically for the faction.  I didn't see your original post, so you can't say I stole your idea  :P  It has become clear that the forum is not an efficient/secure enough way to communicate and coordinate our actions as a group, so I thought an IRC channel would be a good way to alleviate these problems.  It would be quicker than the forum and the faction mail, and about as secure as the faction mail.  Also, the only person who can send a faction mail to all faction members at once is Daxx, so it's not a very good substitute for the forum.
Current server and channel is irc.irc-chat.net #gamingsteve
Possible new server and channel is irc.deepirc.net #gamingsteve

Can we get a stronghold again yet?
Actually, yes we can. I wanted to know what people thought about placing it first, though.

This is exactly the sort of thing which could be sorted out more easily on the IRC channel.  That way, a spot could be decided more quickly.  I still think the wrench would be a good idea, but am open to suggestions.

That's the idea. I know it's not a hospital, but a pharmacy will still give FAKs, and we're close to both factories and a gun store for lots of AP. Are there any people there now? If not, I would like to move everyone over there as long as people agree.

The idea was to build the stronghold on the slum. Building it on a factory is suicide, because people get really pissed at factions with factory strongholds.

Ideally I want one closest to the resource buildings. There's very little difference between the two in terms of distance to anything important, except [5,29] is closer to those two northern factories. Since your scouting doesn't seem to indicate that anyone is using those buildings, I think we'll pick [5,29].

Hum, not that good. :)

By the way, how can you tell who is "evil" and who is "good" so that I'm not attacking the wrong person?

You hit them and see if your morality goes up or down. If it goes up, keep swinging!

Or you can buy Sense Morality. Whichever works for you.

Post by: Krakow Sam on June 28, 2006, 11:20:31 am
I'd suggest buying sense morality. Once you turn good, just taking a swing at a good or neutral character decreases your morality even if it doesnt connect.

[5,30], or [5,29] sound good to people?

Both look good to me...  Just wanted to say that you can make things in a stronghold just like you can in a factory, but I guess you still need to search in a factory to find raw materials.  Just thought I'd make sure everyone knew that.

If we're going to put up a stronghold then I think we should get the IRC channel going again.

The server is DeepIRC. irc.deepirc.net Port: 7000. The room is #gamingsteve.

If you have any problems logging onto this, post here what you are using to connect to IRC and any error messages you might also be getting. We'll see if we can't sort the problem out.

*cough* chatroom *cough*

EDIT: I just logged on to an alt and saw this
"Linguist attacked you with an Iron Sword for 5 points of Slashing damage. (Thu, 29 Jun 2006 17:00:50 -0500)
Linguist said, "Shoot! I'm sorry, Jon-e! Don't stand there, for heaven's sakes!" (Thu, 29 Jun 2006 17:01:09 -0500)"

Jon-e is a throw away alt I have for looking around. But the intersting thing is Linguist is from Channel 4 News Team.

For those of you who are out of the loop Channel 4 News Team is a level six evil faction with 36 members, whose stronghold just happens to be beside ours.

Now I don't know if Linguist is just a nice guy who didn't want to kill a level one, but if they let someone in that actually has some decency, maybe we have less to worry about. Maybe these guys are more roleplayers. Has anyone else had any contact with any of them?

Well, none yet, you're right.
Shouldn't be too long, though. I'm nearly level 13 and there must be some people who started before me.

Edit:
From OS:
Yu     16     Pariah
Fitz    15    Pariah
Mister Eko    15    Pariah
Sargatanas    15    Pariah
From DARIS:
 Judge Death     16     Pariah
Vandia    16    Pariah
Galthrazemoth    15    Pariah
Ted Bundy    15    Pariah

Those are just the Pariahs from those two factions. You're right, there aren't many around.

Yes, they are, and yes, I have.

The Channel 4 news team are evil. Their stronghold is right next to ours. If you want to do something useful, try attacking their ward - you never know, we might be able to take their standard.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Tal on June 30, 2006, 11:28:05 am
Evil sure as hell levels faster. I started my evil alt a week later than Tal, and he's already a friggin' Myrmidon. Then again, that could have something to do with the XP bonus that comes from the damage bonus of being in the OS. Other than that, the ability to wantonly kill is the tradeoff. That's the balance. Good guys are much more powerful than evil guys, but they have to work harder to find targets so that they don't lose morality and get their powers taken away. Evil guys have no such disability.

Also, just to scare you guys: There are currently about two hundred OS members in their stronghold. Of that number, I count seventeen who are below level 10...This place is an XP farm waiting to happen...

No, wait. I had an encounter wih Channel 4 and the guy was polite. I don't say we should start anything unless we have to.  If no one else has been attacked by them why should we start the battle?  I'm just saying wait a bit so we can size these guys up, in terms of strength and what kind of players they are. (IE: they don't attack anyone two levels lower then their character for example). As much as I would love a good battle, if Channel 4 turns out to be decent people I don't think we should screw that up. Plenty more evil around.

I remember them from Urbandead. They like to run around and write stuff on the walls and in the wiki, but I don't think they're really that strict when it comes to roleplaying ingame. I'll see if I can get in touch with their leader. Otherwise, I think they're pretty much fair game.

Well things aren't all black and white.  Knights of L.

I think actions speak louder then words. I still haven't seen any hostility from Channel 4 News Team. And I'm still waiting to hear that someone else has.

It's obvious while some factions like OS are evil, but others need a bit of patience to figure them out.

The Knights of L Ron are *******s anyway - they're a goon faction. Having said that, evil characters are fair game. iIf they're an evil faction with neutral and good members, fair enough. But we need to level, and that comes before good faction relations at this stage. We could just as well have attacked them by accident.

Edit: see the PendingChanges - we have a decision to make.

Quote
Factions now have the option to choose the bonuses they recieve from increased karma.

    * All factions have a primary and a secondary focus.
    * Primary focus cannot be the same as the secondary focus.
    * Depending on the level of focus, the bonus changes. Thus, a faction with "Attack" primary gains an attack bonus faster than one with an "Attack" secondary.
    * The bonus granted depends on the type of focus.
    * The available foci are:
          o Attack (increases to hit)
          o Damage (increases damage)
          o Defensive (increases defense)
          o Search (increases search chance)
          o Medical (increases HP healed by members)
          o Crafting (decreases AP cost of crafting by members)
          o Repairing (decreases AP cost of repairing by members)
    * All current factions have been set to Attack/Damage (which matches the current set up exactly).
    * All factions, regardless of focus, gain the soak bonus, when available.
    * Factions are sortable by focus in the faction list.
    * The edit faction screen smartly disables the secondary option when you select a primary and vice versa.

Well, right now we're not exactly rolling in the karma. This is a hard decision to make. I wonder if it could be changed at will, though that seems kinda unbalancing. Unless it cost a load of AP like building a stronghold does. I'm a fighting character, so I'm good with the current setup. Though, the Defensive option sounds nice too, keep us from dying so fast.

I'll be the faction's general repairman and armorsmith. But, if our stronglhold falls and we need to make another one, can it be near a factory? It makes repairing stuff faster. And I'll see if I have enough AP to help, Werechicken.

Downtown is loaded with evil lvl 10s from the OS. However, you're just as likely to get killed as you are to kill a few others. A hit-and-run is suggested.

We almost have more enemies in our base then our own members. higher levels need to fight back, if lower levels can't they need to heal the higher levels as best they can.

Although I did get an invite to join them

Post by: Krakow Sam on July 04, 2006, 02:12:30 am
Sorry about being unable to defend the stronghold and everything... however I did something pretty cool anyway. In trying to get back to the stronghold I stumbled across oblivion squadron's base. Outside were two pariahs, one lvl 16 and one lvl 13. With the help of a random lvl 1 (who healed me a few times) I managed to dispose of both of them... at the cost of my last AP. I was then butchered by a lvl 15 myrmidon (untyped damage!) but I'm pretty chuffed at having inconvenienced two major players like that.

Edit: Anyone need some stuff which might be found in paradise while I'm there?

Do you realize what a pain that would get to for our own members to get to? Also don't you drown if you stay in the same tile too long while swimming?  If I'm low on AP I'd like to make it to our stronghold without the chance of dying because I ran out of AP in the middle of the ocean instead of near some bvuildings I oculd have ducked into.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Tal on July 04, 2006, 06:03:34 pm
I think we should stay in The Wrench. There is a great number of good factions there, and if we all worked together with them, we could have their protection in the event of an attack. We're just a good target because we're a low-level faction.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Tal on July 04, 2006, 09:10:32 pm
First, I apologize deeply for the double-post. Will not happen again.

Has anyone seen the new changes? It's a lot friendlier to smaller factions like ours. Our ward grows back a lot faster now, so our survivability is much improved. Also, remember that rogue faction that took our standard but didn't have a stronghold? Well, that's been fixed. Also, the new focuses are implemented, and we should think about working on them.

On a different note, factionless characters who survive for extended periods of time get bonuses as if they were in factions. I like.

After being killed I tried making back yesterday but didn't have the AP to make it back i got killed again respawned closer to 5,29 I noticed it's empty just the dead bodies of our faction mates I hacked a local evil up for some xp now I am hiding. How long until we can put the ward back up?

Well, then we might want to get our priorities straight. I'd personally prefer a faction that doesn't get destroyed every two days. But I guess if we surround ourselves with good factions it would be OK. So we should make a list of what criteria our new location must meet.

I found a Pariah and a Shepard, the Shepard had pretty low health, so I healed him up to full. I go inside the corner store they were next to, and then walk back out, and the Shepard has low health again. So I got to heal him from very low health twice! With the XP bonus, too! I bet the Pariah was pissed though.

Well, we become more of an attractive target to larger factions. Level 5 gives us the best bonuses whilst being small. Our membership really can't sustain high karma when so many people are idle.

Are we allied with the CH4 because they wrote this "GamingSteve, CH4 is an Evil-Fighting Evil faction closely tied with CDF, We seek an Alliance. http://ch4.proboards47.com/" on a rock outside our base.

I'm negotiating with them now, I saw the message too. They seem friendly enough, they're allied with the other good factions around, and they're willing to share information. It turns out that they're not the same CH4 as from UD, and they seem like nice guys.

then why do we coninuely get attacked by neutral and evil people? seriously how many times has our fortress been destroyed!?

It's a PvP game. Expect to get attacked. The sum total of stronghold destructions we have had is about 3 or 4. That's not very much, especially when you consider that the earlier ones we couldn't do anything about because we were too weak and Jorm hadn't fixed the ward strengths yet to work on Karma instead of membership. Follow orders and get back in here, it's a lot safer than being outside.

Also, apologies for being away for a few days.

I have about 4 spells on Son of Edward. I'll let you have one or two, as I plan to be a shepherd also.

They are:
Ash Choke
Open Lock
Burning Torch
Turtle Shell

In other news, I just spent ~40 AP crafting an average quality Fireman's jacket. :o So I can't go to the stronghold yet I'm in -20 AP.

Yeah, it is...the highest I can get at the moment with my paladin is 55% and that wont change 'till I become a seraph but my Pariah with blood claws is kicking ass.

Check the changelog. Song of the Word (http://wiki.nexuswar.com/index.php/Song_of_the_Word)

I knew this was coming - the Advocate's needed something else for a while now.

Edit: Okay, here's the deal. I'm going to reshuffle the ranks around so our top-ranking people are promoted in the next few days once our restock of the safe and the negotiations with CH4 are done. As it stands, two of our Holy Knights of Freud are idle, and that won't do. I'll be posting a list of all the idlers here as well.

Nice, I saw it while scanning, but didn't think much of it. But isn't the only Advocate (possibly) Jorm? Still, it's a really nice spell that I'll use for son of Edward. (in about a month :P)

Yes, but the problem is that everyone I find damaged is Lvl. 9 -, so most of the stuff I heal gets me 1-2 XP!!! Also I use surgery and F.A.K.'s But I'm thinking of getting healing by magic as well.

Mike,

Glad to have you here. I'm Destero, as you can probably tell from my sig. Now, I'm all for an alliance of sorts, and certainly a non-aggression pact at the very least. It's always useful to have people who can get past wards and head into Stygia if it's necessary.

I suggest that terms of an alliance be information sharing to start with, and possibly some organised raids later on. What do you say?

And what does everyone else here think? Any ideas, anyone?

EDIT: Also, I am now a Shepherd. Go me.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: LadyM on July 15, 2006, 04:07:29 am
An alliance would be great. What would be the possibility of some of our evil alts joining their faction and helping them along with us. Can we do that without breaking any game rules? I really need an evil alt, they all turned out good.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on July 15, 2006, 04:11:04 am
Can we do that without breaking any game rules?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: there are lots of provisos with that yes, because we can't act in such a way as to trip the zerging flags. Basically, that means if there is a co-ordinated raid, you send one and only one of your alts, even if you're on different factions. There are some other minor things, but I doubt they'll be an issue unless you actively try to do them which would be dumb.
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: LadyM on July 15, 2006, 04:15:27 am
Well, we dont want trip the flags but maybe if they need more numbers in their faction, it could help. I do have two alts with no where to go. I just don't know if I can do evil. Funny but I've been invited to several factions, just haven't picked one.

There is no real problem with having any of your evil alts joining the CH4.  We do have our own modified zerging rules which are a little more strict then what Jorm has to say, but still nothing too hard.  Many of us CH4 members actually have alts in other factions such as the CDF.  If anyone wishes to join the CH4 by all means please do (sorry I do not believe in recruiting on other people's boards).  Also our forum is Http://ch4.proboards47.com feel free to stop in and say hi even if you do not join the CH4.  When you get there please pm Mike Hock.  We look foreward to smiting down plenty of evil with you.

Badges are great for when you happen to respawn in the area of 1 that you know of, or once you have earned all of your levels.  They are also good to give you a break from the mundane day to day nexus living.  When you're losing your mind and just want to go out and about, or even when you are in situations like my CDF alt that is a level 14 paladin that can not find any evil people with a high enough level to get xp without going on a raid (which the CDF doesn't do often).

I managed to Kill one evil guy then A Myrmidon showed up I took a few swings but the fact that each hit only did one damage sort of made it pointless I think the fact that there was nobody around worth fighting resulted in the Myrmidon leaving quickly. On the plus side there is some more stuff for crafting in the safe now.

While on a trip to do some repairing I noticed the factory Ive been using is going to be the future stronghold of CH4...

Can people freely enter the strongholds of allies? If so then theres no problem but if not we may have to ask them nicely to move it to a different square, since it would severely increase the distance to factories for repair runs. (as almost every factory is now someone's stronghold.

I just so happen to have 2 AP left and am desperate to get inside. I did not foresee this, and if I did I might have saved up some AP. It will probably take me 10 AP to knock it down, while anyone inside can just log in and unlock it. So everyone stop locking our door!

I'm a bit worried about the oblivion squadron I don't want our stronghold to be destroyed again, but if they attacked us they would lose allot of honor so they might just be trying to scare us.

We seem to have plenty of shepards and paladins but none to many neutral classes. Maybe some of the people close to ascending should consider becoming myrmidons or sorcerors so we have a good range of top tier classes.

I'm an advanced armorsmith! This means that I can create armor up to pristine quality, which gives you defensive bonuses. And ifyou don't know where to pick up armor its in "take other".

edit: I'm also considering becoming a sorcerer. They have really powerful skills, and wizards (third tier) can craft magical armor. :o Plus if I change my mnd and decide not to become a wizard, there's two other paths to choose from.

I'm thinking of taking advanced smithing but have no use for gunsmithing. Chicken should take gunsmithing.

Edit: Seeing as fighting has become a poor source of XP I decided to alter my character plan and take swordsmithing earlier than planned. If anyone is planning to take thrown weapons in preparation for becoming a divine champion it may now be worth your while because I can craft throwing knives (10 per chunk of steel). I can also expend horrendous quantities of AP to craft swords and such if anyone needs.

Heal Self?
Infuse?
Sorcerer's Might?
Spell Combat?

Sense Magic? Is this a good one to have? I don't have it yet.

I'll probably be getting the special classes int he next day so I'm going to re-pose the question as well what does our faction need the most I was thinking of taking something to help with crafting the most as it's what I am currently consetrating on but it also depends on what we need.

I'm not sure how many Infuses we have LadyM but it couldn't hurt to get more. Or maybe some spell combat or something although I guess it depends one what you plan on doing.

Spell combat. Otherwise spells are just a fancy way to waste MP

Stronghold location is in the FP. If it changes, I'll change it there too.

You have to have "Cast Spell" as a skill to learn spells, which some classes get at level 10 for free and others have to buy.

If we need more karma I can infuse some squares in paradise, i'm searching for angelic books to level up at the moment.

Do those give more XP?

Hey, where's the nearest portal to paradise?

That's bizarre. Can anyone else think of anything that might cause us to drop 5 points of karma? We don't accept multis, so that can't be it.

I think I found the reason.

Quote
Being Idle has the following effects:

The character has "(Idle)" displayed next to their name in faction membership lists
The character will not count towards faction karma
An idle character cannot be interacted with until they login


No, that's not it either. People have been idle for ages, and it was only when he joined that we lost the karma (I know, because I was playing at the time).

I do suggest getting rid of those spells, Calqhoon. You need CP to learn them, and there is no way in heaven you could gain enough CP to do that.
Also, did you see any alchemy recipes too?

Hey, where's the nearest portal to paradise?
Books found in stygia and paradise give 10 xp each. The nearest portal to paradise is in St Michael's catherdral about 20 tiles southeast of our fortress.
Also, does anyone know how to solve this 'please wait' problem? For me the menus never actually load and I have to click on a menu, wait a while, then refresh the page to get it to display (even then it soemtimes doesnt work), which I dont think is a very celver thing to do  :-\

Someone needs to get some gunpowder first. If you head to the gunstore, search and dump everything in the safe, people can turn it into useful things.

How did you get so many?  :o Maybe you could give me some of your duplicates? I"m not sure what they do either. I'll have to look it up. You could put them in the safe for me or I'll try to get back to the stronghold when I have more AP. It takes 10 now just to regenerate.
Spent my first few weeks sitting in libraries :)

Those spells are spread over Calqhoon and my neutral character, Doug. You can pretty much take your pick from those. You gotta be level 10 to learn them?

Where's the stronghold btw?

I'm back in the stronghold. If you make it there please give me any extra spells you have. I'll take anything. I can meet your alt outside if he has any, I won't kill him this time.

You attack Ashram (http://nexuswar.com/characters/view.do?characterID=7262) with your Blood Claws Attack for 8 points of Unholy damage. 2 points of that damage was due to factional control. You gain 10 Experience Points! He has died. You gain an additional 12 XP!

I made my first potion:

You spend some time toiling over the workbench, adding your components with meticulous care. After some time, the mixture boils down and you are left with a potion. You pocket the potion for later use. You gain 10 Experience Points!

It's the Combat Clarity one. That was fun.  :)

OH make that two. I just did an invisible one too. Keep bringing components. I guess I can make potions and put them back in the safe or do them by request.

They suffer damage during the day, and get extra bonuses during the night. Some of their skills can negate/enhance these bonuses. They sound like a powerful addition. Though my myrmidon is still probably going for an eternal soldier.

Revenant? This game is getting to neutral by far. Not only do they get a zone about a zillion time larger than stygia and paradise, but they also have three tier three classes to choose from... bah, its not like its hard to think of some new good and evil classes. here goes:

Ophanim: Magic oriented tier 3 good class. The Ophanim are charged with constructing and maintaining the divine engines of Paradise. In addition to being powerful spellcasters Ophanim can also construct permanent mechanical allies at the cost of a large amount of raw materials and magic points. The 'constructs' do not dispel after death or the end of a time limit the same was as summoned creatures do, and can be repaired by the Ophanim after taking damage.

Virtue: Combat oriented tier 3 good. The Virtues are the Void Walkers to the Seraph's Infernal Behemoth. Using stealth and subtlety they work to unravel the defences of evil. Virtues can take the form of glowing sparks of light which allows them to enter inaccessible locations and penetrate the defenses of foes. In addition the Virtues hold a power which allows them to completely bypass any armor or defense a foe may possess, making them highly effective assasins.

Sin Lord: Magic Oriented tier thee evil. Sin Lords are the demons which tempt others to do evil themselves. Using powerful magics the Sin Lords can afflict their foes with a number of seven deadly sin inspired maladies and debuffs. They can also disguise themselves as others to manipulate their foes.

Tormentor: Combat Oriented tier three evil. Tormentors carry out the foul tortures of Stygia. Unlike the other evil classes their speciality is not to kill outright but to slowly and excruciatingly bring a target to its knees. Tormentors can create and summon fiendish traps and devices from the pits of stygia to aid them in this.

there, see. Easy. Stupid neutral loving game devlopers  :P

right I've found a pretty good location for a base if it was in paradise. at 15,30, in paradise, there is a smithy you can repair swords and I think you can also repair guns (I'm not sure as I didn't have any damaged guns, but I could make ammo) only downside is that the only place you can get gunpowder is in gunstores, but there are lots of places in paradice where you can find swords. besides planar protection is only 10cp and nearly all of our members are nearing ascension anyway.

edit: there is another smithy at 22,30 as well maybe we could set up our fortress in between if we do move?

If you hang out in the stronghold you get killed a whole lot less.

You can't really do that as a Tier 2. The problem is, people raid the libraries looking for easy targets. If you're tier 2, you may as well ignore all the tier 1s in the room because you'll be targeted long before they will.

You have first aid and lockpicking, both of those you can do in or around the stronghold.

I can't lockpick inside the stronghold can I? And I'm out of FAK's at the moment so it means a hospital run. The best times are when i can step outside and find someone just waiting to be killed. Now I see why everyone complained about level 2.  :-\

Pharmacy's nearby, but yes you do have to make FAK runs to be a healer. I don't think anyone can really expect to stay inside a hospital and stay alive for long at Tier 2.

Don't worry, you'll get used to it. :)

If you have to spend the night somewhere it doesn't hurt to try hiding you can use your last 10 AP to find a spot if you need to if the building is full of people anyone who walks in will use the people in plain sight as target practice and wont bother doing a search. Also doesn't hurt to leave crowded areas and go to a near by place that isn't as obvious to for you to hide in. Which is probably a good idea if you are spending time in a Library as almost everyone going in that place will be using search. It's how I survive when I have to spend the night outside the stronghold.

I keep dying before I get to the stronghold. I'll try to get there with my spells soon, though I think getting the spells from my alt too is just gonna be too much hard work and take too much organisation.

Yeah, that's kinda obvious. Well, if you haven't played games like this before, maybe not so much.

Still, if you're not in the stronghold you should almost always hide overnight, preferably in buildings that are at least two blocks from a PD or a gunstore, or a big faction's stronghold.

If you have searched in Paradise and found a vial of clear liquid, those are angel tears and they will help heal you. Good to take with you if you don't have Plainar Protection.

They don't stack, but they cover holes, so if one's got protection from slashing and another from fire, then you get both.

I agree. Though today was not my NW day. My only good spell burnt up, my Myrmidon got killed within seconds of spawning (I was ganged up on. But I put in a few good hits on them too.) My low-level alt is 9 exp from leveling to #4.

This is the RRF. Whilst I am all for raids, before we know whether our allies are onboard perhaps it's just better to consider moving.

Edit: Okay guys, looks like we're leaving. I'm sick of being bullied and griefed by a faction we have no hope of retaliating against. Next AP cycle I get without being killed, I'm taking down the stronghold.

Do you know who the RRF are?

The answer is no, we're not going to do nothing, so to that end I'm going to have a chat with the higher ups of our allied factions, and see what they think. Frankly though, I don't feel that taking on the most powerful faction in the game is a smart move. Which is why I'm upset, because I'm fairly certain that Jorm had in mind to stop people from attacking factions who don't have a chance to fight back.

I have started reading up on them a bit sure they are powerful but if they are causing as much trouble for us as every other faction in the area I doubt we even have to just consult the good aligned factions if it gets organised well enough I'm sure we could attack them for days on end.

Give me some options, since you're our resident expert on Paradise.
I'm going to assume you aren't being sarcastic and say anywhere in between 22,30 (a smithy), 23,28 ( a pretty big vault of enlightenment) and 9,25 (portal back to the real world and only a couple of tiles away from a gunshop). Those three provide us with; a place to repair guns and swords, and to also a place to make them, a place to find books, spells and potions and finally a place to get gunpowder for ammo. That enough info?

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: werechicken on August 02, 2006, 04:05:37 pm
9,25 is the portal, I don't think you can make that into a stronghold, but around the smithy and the vault are a load of cottages that can be made into strongholds, many already are but there re still allot of free ones, plus we might get more protection from allies this way.
edit: oops just checked out the wiki, it requires 12mp to use the portal I've sugested, the warriors won't be bothered, but I'm guessing that the mages won't be too happy

As you seem to be the most interested in this, I'm going to put you in charge of the team. It's your job to get people to join you (I suggest PMs or writing in magic marker) and when you're ready and have enough willing volunteers, tell me. You have my full permission to solicit what help from other factions you can get. I will give you general instructions and it will be your job to see that they are carried out however you see fit.

This may be useful to someone.

you find a torn sheet of notebook paper. On it is written: "...and a lump of iron. Combine using the fourth alchemical form."

and this

Hidden within the book you find a creased sheet of stained paper. On it is written: "Depth of clarity in the art of warfare can be achieved by imbibing a solution composed of three weights of steel melted into a single weight of gold."

I found an area of effect spell, and my question is, should I learn it? As in, are we ever planning to go on raids where an area of effect spell would be useful?

Yes, the vault of enlightenment rocks.

Also, if you get Planar Protection it seems as if it doesn't cost MP to travel in gates, so I think I might make some treks to Stygia and hurt some baddies 8)

We moved to Paradise (new location is in the FP), because we were being raided by rogue members of the RRF.
Pick up planar protection when you can, and head up. Bring some ammo with you, we don't have much in the way of being able to find it or craft it up here.

A bunch of new stuff is being/has been added to the game, you might want to check out the past Pending Changes on the wiki.

We've lost our faction bonuses and whilst we're now far less vulnerable to attack we are in Paradise anyway - basically we need to get our bonuses back by going on a large infusion spree.

Damn, an infernal behemoth tailwhipped my sorcerer to death, and I ran out of AP trying to kill a void walker with my alt.

The good news is that I have fouind the rare auto-hit spell The Crushing, so my first priority is to get that. My third alt is already a level 10 Paladin for the NRA nutjobbers, though I started him a month ago. And my evil alt can deal 21 untyped damage in a single hit. (If I'm lucky)
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on August 14, 2006, 01:13:49 pm
The Crushing is awesome. I killed three tier-2s in one day with that thing (I had a lucky prayer too, which gave me full mana regen). It does cost like 25CP though.

Title: Re: Nexus War

No, not necessarily (though I plan to get it if I have the spare CP sometime). I've been purifying like mad today (after having died, I respawned in Valhalla, made it though a portal and hid in the woods for about 12 hours then finally made it back after having picked up a badge or two on the way), so let's keep it up.

I didn't notice. I wouldn't think so, it just gives your faction karma (which in turn increases your bonuses).
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Krakow Sam on August 15, 2006, 04:33:42 am
No. No Xp.
Ive determined at this point that my best bet for XP now is (unfortunately) crafting and repairing... unless of course theres a portal to stygia nearby we could pop through...
Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Daxx on August 15, 2006, 04:38:31 am
There is one pretty close, I think. I'm pretty much reduced to reading books at this point (which isn't a bad thing, because I find the odd spell and magic item as well as getting 10xp from the books).

Aha! My paladin for the DA finally got his divine armour! Now he shall be an invincible killing machine! (Also he just took down three evil guys within 30AP, which may account for the sheer amount of xp I just got.)

Quote from: The Wiki
The first portal to Stygia is found [9,13]. The portal takes one to [40,16], apparently an area flowing with lava.

The second portal to Stygia is found at [23,29]. The portal takes one to [1,17], apparently a frozen waste in the southwest of the plane.

Post by: Cobra on August 15, 2006, 04:38:53 am
I was trying to decide what take to take with my CP I have 22 cp I've trying to decide what to do with them. thinking of either getting purify, or maybe planar protection and go hunting in stygia, or wait until I get enough to get full armorsmithing and make everything pristine. The other option is sword smithing and make more swords. we seem to have a fair amount of component for making those. I'd make more armor but no one has been bringing in Leather and plastic.
Title: Re: Nexus War

Blood Touch is a touch attack spell (uses hand-to-hand skill), and does 8 untyped damage. It costs 6MP to use.

There aren't as many people in Stygia mainly because if you hang around in Stygia too long you get killed. Finding somewhere safe means finding somewhere as far away from anywhere as possible.

You should find plenty of people in resource buildings, since you often get people who head in there and spam AOE attacks to get their damage rating up. Just don't AP out there, because you'll probably get caught in those same attacks. Try to sleep next door whilst you're still Tier 1.

You should have safe access acccording to the faction admin panel. I guess it's probably because the game thinks you just joined our faction, and you have to wait a day to get safe access (that's coded in, I can't change that). You'll just have to wait an AP cycle or two, and it should give you access.

I'm not sure where would be the best place to get some but any chance we can have people bring in some components for armor making as its a skill I have I'd like to get a chance to use it. plus it be good if we can have some alternate armors in the safe for people who want to take them and go hunting they come back drop off the damaged stuff in the safe and take some repaired ones out.

Those who don't know we need Leather and Plastic to make it.

Generally they're okay if you're low level. Once you get past level 10, people start attacking you more regularly for XP. If you're good, and you remember to hide at the end of each AP cycle, you should stay alive indefinately.

Surgery isn't what you think. You just click "Do surgery" or something, and it heals them.

Well, for a Pariah it's a little easier because morality doesn't matter to me, but I just search the buildings around gunstores and hospitals. Most Tier-2s won't hide in the gunstore, but they'll inevitably hide nearby.

And you don't need to be in a faction, either. You should find a fair number of demons there if you go, but don't expect the place to be as packed out as Paradise.

Neither can my sorcerer, or paladin. Their 12 and 11, respectively. My myrm has to only worry about tier 2s, and Poco Maquez Island, HQ of TOAH, is (mysteriously) full of them. Though once a pariah broke into our faction ward and exploded after saying how pathetic our faction is.  :D Which is funny. I guess he thinks that taking standards gives you a boost no matter what faction level you are.

Right. I just caught an Acta Sanctorum member infusing over our locations (over our stronghold, no less!). We need to redouble our infusing efforts to get them to go elsewhere and stop wasting our time. I want the square of our stronghold and the adjacent 8 to be infused to our faction.

You can purify a place wit a certain amount of MP. If someone spent 13MP to infuse it for their own, then you will have to spend 14MP to make it ours.

Post by: Daxx on August 23, 2006, 11:59:25 am
Firstly, everyone has the ability to invite people.

However, secondly, I refuse to have anyone in the faction who isn't on these forums. Call me old fashioned, but I think that if they can't be bothered to spend a little time to join the forums and learn what we're about, and maybe actually contribute, they shouldn't be allowed to join the faction. So whilst you have the ability to invite people, you should know when to use it.

TAOH have an open membership policy, and if you want to just invite anyone do so to that faction; we'll be able to see the results for ourselves that way.

Post by: Daxx on August 24, 2006, 02:57:18 pm
Okay, a new project. We're going to start collecting and piecing together the Lore of Haldon. It won't help us until we each individually have every piece, but I want to see what the whole thing looks like and everyone can help. Post your fragments of lore, together with their number, and we can see what we get.

1 - I sit to write this, Haldos the Deathless, Haldos the Diseased, A Great Recording of my experiences and Testament to my Power, I, who have challenged Death Itself and Have Struggled Through.
2 - Read Deep and Learn Well, for great power awaits he who can unlock the secrets I keep within my writings.
3 - CONCERNING THE ELDER POWERS AND THE STRUGGLE THEY PURSUE
4 - Argument: The Powers are Nine in Number and are the Great Custodians of Existence. They are the Eldest, but not the eldest, for time is slippery. They are not eternal and have both a Beginning and an End.
5 - Once there was the Maker, that whom fools call 'god'. (a more inept description i cannot fathom for the maker thinks not of what he makes, no more than i lend thought to the sweat i produced in life)
6 - The Maker is Eternal Without Beginning or End, and the Maker is its own Reason For Being. Being Eternal, it sleeps in an unbroken harmony, assured of its own existence
7 - (those of us who sense the passage of time are forever denied this unreasoned and cold peace, forever fighting with who we were and who we will become)
8 - The Maker creates and destroys universes as single breaths, both creator and destroyer, never aware, never caring.
9 - From the Maker's mighty lungs flow the Wind of Creation and Chaos. But this Chaos stuff does not remain Chaos; nay; it quickly cools into existence, only to eventually burn itself out in a great conflaguration. It can be shaped.
10 - The Powers are extensions of The Maker. They are the Pneuma, the Breath of the Maker, and they are the Maker's schizophrenia, aspects of an Eternal, Self-Aware Dream. They have taken upon themselves the Roles of shepherds for the Universe and Yet they cannot Agree. The Elders Number Nine, and they are named
11 - Marquai the Constructor, Time's Keeper
12 - Alonai, She-Who-Walks-With-Grace, Love and Innocence made flesh
13 - Agh-za-Haru the insane, Lord of Nightmares
14 - Namm the Vigilant, Guardian of the Weak, Lord of Law
15 - Tholaghru the Gnasher, Master of Chaos, Destruction and Disease
16 - Hashaa, Record Keeper, Death Incarnate
17 - Tlacolotl the Violent, Master of Hatred
18 - Goros the Gatekeeper, the Runner, he who creates and drives all things physical
19 - Baraas the Laughing, who creates societies
20 - Wherein lies the Roots of the Great Struggle? I know not; my Master would reveal nothing of this Time in his Violent Glory.
21 - They are Capricious entities, and Greedy (but what True Power is not? The Truly Powerful seek and take power whereever it may be found).
22 - So perhaps it is nothing more than greed that fuels this fire? I think not; Tholaghru is incapable of understanding the power he weilds, Alonai cares more for ants than cosmic might.
23 - Argument: The Nine Powers represent spokes of the Greater Consciousness. They are in conflict, though to my eyes now it appears this conflict carries no more weight with them than a game of dice.
24 - They play dice with the universe, scoring points, perhaps, the more times their particular ethos drives ascendency in the Nexal Struggle.
25 - Argument: When the Breath is Expended, the Next Universe awaits. The Elder Powers then force the Nexal Conflict to determine who has the honor of (and power inherent in) Guiding the Next Breath.
26 - I believe that the Midwife gains Cosmic power throughout the Lifetime of a Universe. Thus, they seek to both give birth to as many as possible as well as extending the time that their Own Universes float In the Eternal Dream.
27 - The Black Three, Tholagru, Tlacolotl, Ahg-za-haru - they are inept. A universe born by their hands is a stunted and deformed thing, quick to burn out and die. But they are victors most often in the struggle.
28 - My Master revealed to me that the previous Victor starts Ascendant in the Nexal War, a privilege of advantage. In my Time, my Nexal Struggle, we birth as stilted, deformed things, gibbering with poisoned mouths - Children of Tholagru - how I hated that form, (and thus my effervescent struggle towards a far less loathesome corporeal existence). Master was Amused. He cares not for form, only function. And blood.
29 - Argument: From this I determined that Chaos is Not the Dominant Factor in the Nexal Birth. There were Rules. And if there were Rules, they could be Broken. Further, I reason, The Nine Can Be Destroyed.
30 - CONCERNING THE LOST THREE
31 - Argument: I have determined that there were once a total of Twelve Powers but that Three are now Consigned to Oblivion, destroyed or forgotten. At least, Evidence suggests.
32 - The Deciever and Corruptor, Azazel, in all his glorious hatred was destroyed, was thrown by some deep Magicks through the Core of Stygia. Where he fell, on a chasm remains, a Ruin that Smoked for a Thousand Years.
33 - Of the other two, I know not what fate befell them. Perhaps they were absorbed back into the Breath? I do not know, and my Master did not Elaborate.
34 - CONCERNING THE NEXUS AND THE PURGATORIO
35 - Argument: The 'Nexus' floats outside of the existence that is normally experienced by mortals through the senses, though sometimes they will cross into that Valhalla in dreamtime. Examinations into its origin are circular. The Nexus existed before, after, and during, and yet in all timestreams fails. It is tied to the Great Cycle and Struggle, which I have managed to move beyond. (What dark and pitiful machinations the Powers play at when the answer to the conflict lies bleeding before them)
36 - The central nexal plane is and always has been the Battlefield which I call Valhalla. However, despite its lynchpin nature the Powers see fit to reshape and remold the land over each iteration of the Great Struggle while The Core Planes remain constant.
37 - Evidence suggests that The Purgatorio was perhaps Once a Battlefield, or several Battlefields, now forgotten, though I cannot discern era or age. Some elements are perhaps pulled from some unforseen, yet-to-be-born future era. It is of no matter now - only the endless, howling void and floating rock surround me.
38 - Argument: The Purgatorio is dying; that much is obvious, though some dread and powerful surgeon (Marquai?) has made an attempt at tying it together.
39 - How successful this remains in future aeons is indeterminate; in fact, I do not know for how many more Breathes the Borders will exist. Portals open and close daily on the rock.
40 - Argument: The Nexus Planes Remain during Times of Universal Breath. This I know; my Struggle Time has ended, Death Ascendant, Hashaa victorious.
41 - Through links in the Deadlands I can see through to the Mortal Realms. Through my Power I have Remained while All others Have ground to Dust. This shall be a short-lived (deathed) Breath.
42 - Is there a way for me to return to the mortal realms? I do not know. The Death Servitors are certainly capable of it - flitting here and there through the dustland, ferrying souls for use in the next war. I have yet to determine their method of planar locomotion, however.
43 - CONCERNING STYGIA
44 - Argument: Stygia is the Back of the Gnasher, a vile landscape of Hate and Iron and Rust populated by the mechanist Juggernaut Army. It has a deep history preserved by the cold of its hate and memory of betrayal, a history which sears to the soul of lesser beings
45 - My Master spoke to me once, saying that before the fall of Azazel, Stygia was a land of smoking volcanoes and lakes of Fire. However, after he was thrown down, the force of his hatred spoiled the land, cooling it to the temperature of his heart. Now it is a frozen waste. Recent travels there have shown me that the once mighty Juggernauts are standing idle, their joints frozen. Many have begun to crumble into rust.
46 - CONCERNING PARADISE
47 - Argument: The fields of Xanadu, or Paradise, are the home of those who believe that the Morality of Men should be Shackled to the Betterment of Society. They have obscure codes, these winged angels. They are full of Grace in Step and Power in Action, but Poison in Ideal.
48 - For while Alonai and her sycophants curse Tlacolotl and his Lot's desire to Enslave openly, they would Ensure Compliance to Good just as readily.
49 - However, despite their faults, it is to the credit of the Good Powers that their tactics of co-operation have led to a greater overall power - if one measures power per individual.
50 - A great percentage of the Good Powers is spent maintaining the lushness of Xanadu. The land is populated with quaint cottages and small villages, all empty.
Waiting. Waiting for what, I wonder? Do the fools believe that someday a host of cows will come to populate the fields and eat of the grasses, tended by mindless, eternally happy citizens who never speak a negative word?

The person who took sword smithing I could use another personal sword for when i go out I often damage my sword there should be plenty of components in the safe to make them there are a couple of swords in the safe already but I don't want to keep taking them all so could you make me a new sword just a smitar or something that does 6 slashing damage.

Also I have Armorsmithing on my character I have mentioned if people need any armors or anything. The thing is nobody is trying to get any Leather or Plastic to put in the safe. I'll be happy to make all the armor you want if you can find me some components. It's much safe than living in Stygia trying to find demons to hunt.

And I have advanced armoursmithing, so I can go all the way to pristine. :)

Anyways, I have decided my sorcerer will now be an elementalist instead of a wizard. Pets are cool.

Post by: Cobra on August 24, 2006, 08:10:36 pm
See we have 2 Armor smiths already so we didn't really need any more of those and also are safe isn't crammed with swords there like 3 maybe 4 in there can always stand to have a few more and we have the omponents for them we got stacks of them if i remember correctly. Plus never hurts to have a good supply of swords that way for people who don't have repair they can just take a sword out and put a damaged one in really easily and then those with good repair can go fixing.

and Like I said can we get some people on to doing some resouce runs for leather and plastic be good if we could have some extra armors going as well. Preferribly a few of each type so people can have the option to wear what ever they need at the time.

No but you get an increase to faction stats for as search is a major stat of our faction we get a huge bonus to searching and we get a small one to attack which means if you have people out do infusing you more likely to succeed att those things although seeing you don't get much xp from searching only if you read the books you find.

Whoever it was is gone now.

Edit: I had a kickass idea today.
Gaming Steve now has a Good Faction and an Evil faction. So what is clearly lacking is a Neutral faction. What i propose is that this faction be a gimmicky 'themed faction', every member character based on a quasi-mythical historical figure (which neatly fits the idea of the Neutral classes all being mortal heroes). I would of course be faction leader, my character none other than the legendary Baron Munchhausen (Myrmidon first and then Eternal Soldier). What does everyone think?

3   CONCERNING THE ELDER POWERS AND THE STRUGGLE THEY PURSUE

40   Argument: The Nexus Planes Remain during Times of Universal Breath. This I know; my Struggle Time has ended, Death Ascendant, Hashaa victorious.

45   My Master spoke to me once, saying that before the fall of Azazel, Stygia was a land of smoking volcanoes and lakes of Fire. However, after he was thrown down, the force of his hatred spoiled the land, cooling it to the temperature of his heart. Now it is a frozen waste. Recent travels there have shown me that the once mighty Juggernauts are standing idle, their joints frozen. Many have begun to crumble into rust.

These plug a few gaping gaps.

His legs have mutated into a backwards configuration and end in hooves rather than feet. He is wearing a nun's habit. His hands in end ragged, blood-encrusted talons.

Then they are impossible to find when you go hunting as welland if you do find them you have like 20 AP left if you are lucky which means you can get maybe 1 hit in before you have to run away to hope you can find somewhere to spend the night. Although thats hardly worth it as you get found anyway.

Evil character have it easy they can attack nearly everyone and it's easy to find where good people hide out anyway my evil alt is raking in the xp while the origional good guy is getts most of my xp from repairing the damge to my items after I die.

With a critical Hit I think I can manage above 30.

Seraph vs. Eternal Soldier, who will win??

Paladins on the other hand while having devine armor Which is cool still despite the fact i wear a firmans jacket plus a light body armor it seems to have little resistance to anything. That and finding bad guys like finding needle in a hay stack. Enhanced senses is a biggest load of crap. if you are a paladin.

Hmmm, tru dat.

Ideally the evils should outnumber the good on the map so good guys get lots of targets. Unfortunately Pariahs make up the bulk of the evil side, and they end most AP cycles by exploding, so you can never find any around.

They have. The good guys kill me instead.

After getting beat down to 3HP by a (level 29) Acta Sanctorium Seraph, I was finished off an Invisible Danger Sorceror.

Wtf? Why do two big Good Factions beat up on mortals with Surgery?

I'm going to head over to their forums and try to get some sort of "Don't kill us just because you can" thing going. We should mark them as friendly, maybe that'll slow down their trigger-fingers.

Its to strike a little fear into the hearts of Newbies.

I saw a post to that effect on the official NW forums.
The high-level players have decided to band to gether and kill lowbies to lend some truth to the games claim that 'you will die a lot'.
I mean, it is pretty cool to be iced by a really powerful character.

The point you're missing is that Evil is selfish and fights amongst itself. In fact, it's supposed to do so (hence the morality "bonus" for attacking other evils, as KS pointed out) and this is fully intended by the game's creator. Evil is more numerous but fights amongst itself, whilst good is less numerous but is more united (and there are angels who attack other angels, in case you forgot).

Why is it stupid to get extra XP? You're not exactly hurting the evil "side" very much in the grand scheme of things (not that there are really sides in this game) by killing someone else who is evil. In fact, it makes more sense because evil can level faster by killing each other.

The worst is being in DWB. They're great people, but you aren't allowed to attack except in self defense. (I think we're allowed to kill demons though). So right now my DWB character spends his time in paradise reading books and hoping someone badly injured will walk in.

And I agree, evil characters seem to overpowered. My paraiah was fighting a Level 24 Nexus Champion and won, because each hit also healed me.  Blood taste is like free heals, and Corode claws seem unfair on how they affect armour.

I wouldnt say overpowered. I totally owned an Infernal Behemoth which was about lvl 28 if I recall correctly. Smite is a very nice attack.

I also took out a Nexus champion with my lowbie defiler.

Battling people isn't a problem it's finding them. Pretty much any evil character who has been playing long enough to reach level 10 or higher generally knows not to spend the night in an open space.

Some tools built a strong hold in the cottage that has the Stgia portal they are probably going to be making alot of enemies. Shall we kill them for blocking us from going in or shall we wait for other to do it for us?

On that matter, there's an Infernal Behemoth in the inn one square below our stronghold, not even hiding. I you get on quick you might catch him before he moves or someone else gets him. But most of you are probably asleep right now.

I managed to do two damage to him with two attacks.

Someone should be checking the morality of their targets. You know not all members of evil factions are evil too. If you attack a good/neutral person in an evil faction you still lose MO. It's not my fault, you just need to be more careful. Pick up sense morality, or do test punches. You can't rely on everyone in hostile factions being evil.

The paladin's armor means youre limited to being killed by myrmidons and pariahs.

Title: Re: Nexus War
Post by: Cobra on October 07, 2006, 01:37:17 am
Myrmidons and Pariahs are a dime a dozen anyway simply because Paladins are everywhere for the armor. I sware xp is so hard to come by that I started running around fixing doors and replacing light globes everywhere can't wait until I level up again then at least i can start pristining everyones armor.

I even put most of my stuff in the safe that I carry seeing i don't need armor to duck out to that tiny island check the power and door of places and come back home. Although I should stay out more get myself killed a few times so I can fix my armor more often.

I'm thinking of trying to pull random stuff together for an 18th century poets look or to go for a '20s Chicago Mobster look, complete with a cigar.

Yeah I just kept going for a few AP cycles I'm back in the safe pristining Armor so if you want any done just leave it in the safe and let me know. Plus a I wouldn't worry too much in a day or two we should be down to 6 again.

Also as far as resource runs go I'm still interested in finding some leather and plastic to make more armor even if people don't wear it much its XP for me to craft and pristine it plus it never hurts to have some extra pristine light armor or what not in the safe in case you want to spend some nights out fighting.

You'll have a lot more work to do when someone picks up Enchantment - if we want fully enchanted armour we have to re-pristine it between each step.

Same applies to weapons (who are our smiths and gunsmiths?)

My ES has ~ 70 HP ATM. And they don't even get any HP bonuses (minus stamina, which I used). Though I saw a few seraphs with 90+ HP before.

And I will get started on the guide right away.

Title: Re: Nexus War ###NEWBIES PLEASE READ FIRST POST###
Post by: Cobra on October 26, 2006, 06:31:55 am
You can infuse by the strong hold but I find that all the other factions hold the squares around the strong hold so to infuse any of those squares it would take 10 infusions to free up a square and then another 10 or how ever many u place into that location.
Title: Re: Nexus War ###NEWBIES PLEASE READ FIRST POST###
Post by: Daxx on October 26, 2006, 07:53:14 am
That's kinda one of the problems of our location - there are too many factions around us to be able to infuse easily; like Cobra says we have to go out of the way to find a place that we can do it easily without being overwritten. Maybe after we've all mostly leveled up we'll change to a location that will allow us to do other things. Primarily, we're where we are now for the books in the Vault.

I'm thinking of a place in paradise that won't be too far from a portal to Valhalla, that way we can go on resource runs and maybe raids. We might move around a couple of times before we settle - for example, we will need the resources to make pristine armour and weapons (and a whole bunch of spares), ammo, stuff like FAKs, amphetamines (I think we've run out) and more mundane things - and we can move near to each of those places in turn to farm them for items. Nomads is us.

That's all for the future, though.

Place it near a portal to Purgatorio. One or two of the main islands have everything valhalla has, but with less people out to kill you. Not to mention it also gives us convenient acess to more tier 2s and 3s.

The first one has the advantage of making sure everyone knows everything, though it will take longer to write and it may scare people away.

The second one would be easy to write, and people would easily come in. Of course, they may have to figure out some things to themselves, probably by using the wiki.

Okay, here's what you should do. Create a thread and quadruple/quintuple/however many you need post in it. Write a brief overview in the first post and link to the subsequent posts which should go into detail on each individual topic.
Caution: requires a lot of planning.

Yes, that's what I was thinking of doing. I'm writing it in textpad (my computer doesn't have Word), so it's taking a bit long.

The pain in the arse thing is even if u have a couple AP you cant infuse just to let i run down because you have to go so far to fidn places that are free.

Heh, you could always save the AP (one of the nice things about being a higher level, if you have 4-5 AP left over, you can save it 'til the next cycle).

true but sometime i end up with like 10 Apleft after doing repair job on swords and armor when i get back as i dont have enough to do any other repairs. i can top up the location of our own strong hold but thats about it. Wee need someone else to help keep like a neighbour square ours as well and make its stays ours everyone who has infuse spend maybe 1 point toping up out square of say the tavern to the south or something as well. If a couple of us do it it should help keep the location infused.
Title: Re: Nexus War ###NOW WITH LESS CHAIN DEATH###
Post by: Daxx on October 29, 2006, 05:15:01 pm
Sure, the tavern to the south sounds cool. That can be our official location if you have AP/MP to blow and can't get into a decent position.
Title: Re: Nexus War ###NOW WITH LESS CHAIN DEATH###
Post by: Cobra on October 29, 2006, 05:20:07 pm
Cool because if we just spend it anywhere then its spread out and we will never get any places fro anyone else.

Can we have a list to see how many people have Infuse? i have infuse I'm guessing you have it Daxx, did LadyM get it?
Title: Re: Nexus War ###NOW WITH LESS CHAIN DEATH###

You can check people's profiles from the faction page. You might want to sort by level first, though.

I'd get infuse but I'm saving up CP so I can summon a Holocaust or Hurricane right at level 20 (maybe 21). So not me.

No, no, we may be able to repair them, or do something else with them (quests maybe) in the future. Also, even damaged rings still give bonuses.

I'm pretty sure on the wiki it says magical rings at this point can't be repaired.

also we have 4 infuses right now if LadyM takes purifying then we will have 5 which if we all do at least 1 AP a turn on a location each day we should ahv at least 2 squares always up.

Paradise is amazingly safe. One time, I needed to die and respawn so I could get some badges, so I let my Myrmidon stay the night outside one of the Vaults. I didn't die, I wasn't even injured.

I hope some people are dumping some AP into infuse one I spent last night bringing the tavern into soits infused to our location just now someone took it back. It ould take less AP per person to keep it in our location if everyone with Infuse/purify what ever puts 1, 2, even 3 point into a spot a day.

Budget your AP properly, or carry some emergency amphetamines. And keep track of your AP at all times, it's important.

I normally i'm doing repairing when I only got 10 Ap left I head back to the SH when I'm almost there I dump a few points into infusion. I often try to make sure I have 2 or 3 AP when I'm done each cycle so that way i have as much AP as possible next time I log on in case of an emergancy and I'm no logging on every 12 hours with 45 AP.

Quick question: How many Pistol Speedload Clips can you make with one Bottle of Gunpowder? The numbers for shotgun shells and rifle magazines would be helpful too.

I'm not sure, I checked the pages for the ammo and for repair item and engineering. I'd check Crafting if it wasn't taking years.
Title: Re: Nexus War ###INFUSION PUSH AT ALL DRINKING ESTABLISHMENTS###
Post by: Cobra on October 30, 2006, 09:30:08 pm
if my memory serves crafting will have the info.

Here you go.

Ballistic Ammunition
If the character possesses either the Engineering or Repair Item skills, he is able to craft ammunition for Pistols, Double Barrelled Shotguns, Pump-Action Shotguns and Rifles. In order for the character to do this, the following criteria must be met:

The character must have a bottle of Gunpowder
The character must be inside of a Factory, a Gun Store, an Ebony Tower, a Smithy, or the Stronghold for the character's Faction
The character must have sufficient room in his or her inventory to accept the ammunition created (variable)
The character must have sufficient Action Points to perform the crafting operation
The character may choose the type of ammuntion to craft. A single bottle of gunpowder will yield:

6 Shotgun Shells
4 Pistol Speedload Clips
2 Rifle Magazines
2 SMG Clips
The bottle of gunpowder will be consumed during the crafting process.

The Action Point cost of crafting ballistic ammunition varies depending upon the skill used:

Engineering or Repair Item will cost 5 Action Points
Gunsmithing reduces this cost to 4 Action Points
Advanced Gunsmithing will reduce the cost to 3 Action Points
The Way of the Armorer will reduce the cost by 2 Action Points, on top of other skills.

Post by: stuck on November 01, 2006, 02:06:57 pm
If you want to keep the team in mind, I'm going elementalist and LadyM's going Lich, so we may have more than enough pets for our size. Plus Advocates get Song of the Word and shoot LASERS out of their EYES.

I'm sure they will. Jorm isn't just going to beef up VWs and leave it at that, I'm pretty sure he'll add something for others too.

ALSO:

This is officially the funniest thing connected with Nexus War. Read as much as you can stomach, and then laugh.

I was going to say yes to this, but they don't seem to have a stronghold. (Maybe they got raided). If they put up another one, I'm up for it. I could do with going on a raid - it would also raise our honour some, which would make keeping our level somewhat easier.

There are 4 creatures here: Green Ranger Tommy! (A Judgemaster), Black Ranger (A Judgemaster), Red Ranger (A Judgemaster), Pink Ranger (A Judgemaster)

..... I feel kinda scared...

On a different note: You search and find a fragment of the Lore of Haldon! The fragment reads as follows: From the Maker's mighty lungs flow the Wind of Creation and Chaos. But this Chaos stuff does not remain Chaos; nay; it quickly cools into existence, only to eventually burn itself out in a great conflaguration. It can be shaped. It has been added to your collection.

What kind of magical pholispher says "stuff"?

Second edit yay!: anyone want the spells Chilling Touch, Blood Touch, Minor Ward Versus Evil, or Ice Dart?

Third!: Why do I have a bottle of orange and green liquid, and how many times will I die if I drink them?

Invisibility  15 minutes 

Ooh I also got four vials of angel tears. 15 dmg to evil and 15 healing to good or neutral.

It is 60CP though, and requires a prerequisite skill of 30CP.

That said, .5 innate movement cost is very powerful. Then again, it's also one of the features of the class, VWs are supposed to be awesome and swift hunters.

I'm sure we'll see some really cool stuff for the rest of the 1.3 update.
