[idea] RPG mode - 1 character mode ("Soloist")

Post by tangar » Wed Aug 31, 2016 11:32 pm

AFAIK in previous years TomeNET had separate RPG server with very important rule - only 1 character per account.. So you can't have twinks and cheeze with multi-housing, storages & etc.

I think a lot of players really miss such game experience.. But creating another server would divide our community in two, its not really good.

There is a way which could help to give RPG-server gameplay experience and also save community in one "basket": to create a new "RPG" mode. Its not so hard to create such mode cause there is already several modes at one server - NE, EL, PvP... So the only thing which RPG mode needs - to be restricted in maximum number of characters to 1.

RPG mode:
1) you could create only 1 such character
2) character is unwordly
3) you can't trade/party with NE and EL characters

Thats it. It would be very unique and interesting gameplay cause there wouldn't be any "backup" stashes; it would be very different and "fresh" economy. In distinction from IDDC (where you could also feel RPG-feeling from old times), players in RPG-mode would live normal life, have a house, chat in Bree & etc :)

I'm sure that a lot of old players would come back to play in such mode :)

RPG was not very popular. If I remember correctly if i saw three players in week on rpg server, you could call it very busy server. And most of player nearly always play in pairs in party.
About cheezing i will say you have more oportunity, because RPG server, didn't have lvl restriction. So you could just leave items for your feature character in party house (parties are not disbanded when owner dies.)
And you still have few ironman dungeons if you want try this experience, one is just one sector south of bree. So if you want experience full RPG experience, make unwowrdly char, don't buy anything for others player, and go only to ironman dungeons.

Why don't you ask for asian server like in old days :D

PvP and IDDC modes also not so popular :) But its fun to have them. Item reqs. is kinda essential imho, so people wouldn't cheeze (give low lvl chars high lvl armour)...

in IDDC you can safely chat every 1000ft nearly the same as in RPG version
You can even sit near the fountain and enjoy this tiny blood droplets in some towns of IDDC. Enjoy spoils of adventure :twisted: No such attraction in RPG/normal version.
The only significant diffrence is not having house in iddc, and not being able to pass this shiny 40+ items to newly created chars.

I suggested an idea of a new mode, based at _some_ concepts of old RPG-server rules. But its not copy of old RPG servers, its different. There is only this features which I see for now:

1) you could create only 1 such character (in this mode)
2) character is unwordly
3) you can't trade/party with NE and EL characters

Everything else is the same as in current TomeNET gameplay with unwordly char. Thre is _no_ cancelation of level reqs. for items (it would just destroy game balance).

Also this mode has nothing in common with IDDC (btw you could have 2 chars in IDDC per acc). Its much more closer to NE-mode. Imagine NE-mode with only 1 unwordly character limit. Thats it. This would be totally different and interesting experience.

Probably is easier to setup rpg server on your own (uncomment one line in common/defines-local.h and compile it), talk with C.Blue about password to connect both server, that you could chat between two. And you have fully functional RPG…
adding next char type mean overall less house for players…
