Ok, as we all know, the wipe is approaching and all our chars will say bye-bye...

I was thinking that we could make the wipe a HUGE RP event...
It's like this,
When version 3.x is ready to launch and right before the wipe is done, a BIG DM event could occur...
I was thinking of something like a Great Battle... A large scale invasion by drows, undead, or such... After the battle ended, the wipe would be done.

The point?

1) We would get to engage our chars in battle one last time before goodbye (snif.. snif...)

2) The wipe would be known for IC purposes as The Great Battle... so, whenever we wanted to refer to the times before the wipe, we would just say, "before the great battle" instead of resorting to OOC information.

3) This would be a great way for some people that will be leaving their characters behind and start new ones in the new version to give them a decent and honorable death.
They would just have to say that they died in that battle.

I think this could be a nice thing... tell me what you people think...

Yay, I like this. Now we only need a time for it to happen.
Hurray for Ectos idea!!!
Ofcourse, I hope that many will not leave their characters behind there.

It would also be a nice thing for Jase, since his char could die there.

well Talan already died BUT he has to regain power because when Liches first become immortal they are weaker than anything. A battle will make him more powerful again (in the spirit of ROLEPLAY not LEVELS)

Then why did you say that? Oh, wait, you meant to save it on your harddisk, heh.
I think I have about 96 different copies of Shadow Randor, lol.

Anyway, does anyone have a time or date on this battle?

don't got off the topic people, please...
Tell me what you think about the idea and feel free to add your own ideas...

This could be an excellent way to say goodbye to the 2nd Era.

Why not a time of peacefull reflection and contemplation of the past.the mistakes made.the meaning of life.

NO WAY I WANT TO GO WITH A BANG NOT A WHIMPER

I agree, death match, all shall come together to fight for the glory...no healing, no resurection, just death upon death upon death...and let the badgers feed upon the dead, burn the towns, loot the shops.....rivers of blood, ah a fitting end, better then holding hands and singing.

Grok a slight bit of Barbarian blood in there is there?Burning looting rivers of blood I can see the light in your eyes as you say these words.Stop denying your soul look mes up after the wave hits think we can find a home better suited to your inclinations than the WR singing circle.

The battle occurred and it was most awesome and fitting. Thank you to the DMs! icon_biggrin.gif It really gave us some roleplay opportunities and helped transition.

I captured some great shots icon_exclaim.gif Check them out!
