Hello, I miss you guys and gals..since Dyso died...it's been very sad..I hope to get some of us together on a server we will enjoy. Tuskan is still a work in progress..and while I am sure it will grow into a great Mod, for now it needs work. I want to ask, plead, or beg..my old friends to join me in a new world to see what you think.

It's called 5 Relms the web site where the patch and portraits pack is at is

http://www.drunkenwarriors.com

It is a huge patch, but well worth it, for many new thisngs are added, easy to install.

My E-mail address is ad_woo@yahoo.com
I am asking all my OSB friends, my fellow Mod's and all my fellow friends of dyso to contact me, or join 5 Relms and look for Grok or Delgar Silverlance.....and soon Rayla and Melvin....

Also, those who are developing Tuskan please drop by as you may get several ideas to add to your mod.

Since Dyso died, I have been missing you, my friends...please lets keep in touch.

Adam
(Grok)

I was on 5 realms the other day ... you left as soon as I got there ... heh. Suffice to say I was fairly lost. Otherwise I have been busy working on zones for the Har-Rhun area when I have had free time.

Grok we all miss you too! People like you are one of the reasons I played Dyso so much. A group of us are currently working on a new MOD that we can just play for fun every once in a while, or to stage our own events. It's currently consists of about 20+ maps, and we expect to maybe even double that in 2-4 weeks. It helps when our "Lead Developer aka Guioco Krag" is a programmer by trade at our work. I'm sure you know everyone in our little design group too. We are currently thinking in a little while of maybe inviting some of our old Dyso friends to come RP with us. Let me tell you that your name came up more than once icon_biggrin.gif

This is for you Foo icon_smile.gif

Giuoco Krag (Scott)
Baleric Mos'viel (Adam)
Lythor Alomerii (Kim..Adam's Dad)
Izboliek Vulame (Mike)
Marek (Paul)
Kalor of Kali-Tyr (Me...Dave)

I'll definetly come check out 5 Realms and I'll let the others know that you are there too.

Well I've tinkered around with 5Realms a bit and I have to give it a big fat thumbs down. Learning curve is too steep, definitely not new player friendly. Can't say I like the area set up much, either.

I think the hakpak thing makes my solo games crash on save, could be wrong, but it started happening shortly after I downloaded it.  Reply with quote

Well there is a lot to chalenge a char at almost any level..and once you learn where the good gear is it makes like much easier..in 5 days I have 1 lv 20, 1 lv 16 and 1 lv 15 char with very nice gear and no consern for gold, and there are lots of monsters (well at least a few) that require a party fo lv 20 chars. It's definatly not a friendly server, but there are a few exceptions...

Heh, guess I'm just lonely for my friends...Laz is bussy with his new star wars game, I have yet to see him there *sigh*..but If you look for one of my chars..Grok, Delgar, or Rayla I will set you up with nice gear and show you the ropes...

Thanks
Adam

Well I've been playin on Arkania a lot- and I'm already pretty well settled there. If any of you want in, I'm sure I can hook you all up. Arkania seems to have soaked up all the Dyso players, so it hits near home. Ok, the items are quite uber in comparison to old dyso items, but I rather enjoy it (granted not as 'rp happening' as Dyso) since it is similar to Dyso 2.x

Again if anyone wants in:

email: doodah@shaw.ca (no spam here please ;P)
icq : 117836310
msn : r_e_d_l_i_n_e@hotmail.com (underscore after every letter)
aim : TerrafirmaIR

Even if your intention is not to play on Ark, add me to your lists anyway; it'd be nice to talk to you guys again icon_smile.gif

Conrad and i hate Arkania...him for personal reasons, me because Kane is an imbisile and hosts a server in an RP folder and can't rp for beans. The server is a mass of areas with uber items...it's just so crappily made, it has so much potential and it just...sucks. Like krynn.

Me and alot of the scamps are on Grey Council Open, in the RP section. It's quite the opposite of Arkania or Dyso 2.x, you are not able to buy anything better than +2.
But there are much better items to get via quests, though you really need to team up to make it to the bosses. At the moment there's not too much RP cause the playerbase is not up to it's old size, server had a downtime of several weeks., but we're hoping for the best. icon_mrgreen.gif

Of course i am. But i always did hate the server, even while DMing - it was incredibly messy, and Kane from day 1 refused to RP anything. To prove it, you'll notice i had one level 20 character there in normal playing - and i had him DM'ed to that. I never got xp the real way more than a few chieftans outside of Port Grass, or whatever that start town is called.

Well this thread degenerated quickly from some warm words between friends to the tiresome mod vs mod politics. *sigh*

I also miss you guys. I hope we'll all be playing together again soon. From the sounds of it, we'll be on a whole host of mods. We've got Cobar Arulean (Har-Rhun), Tuskan, Arkania, 5Realms, Dysotopia SoU (Bri), Darkshadow's mod (GFS?), and Grey Council Open already listed. We may end up spread out, but hopefully we can at least get together on a somewhat regular basis for old times' sake.

As for me, I've been helping with the development of another mod not yet mentioned. Along with expansia (Sophi / Nicha) and Lord Randall (Cragthor), we've been helping Balkur / Crupal (an old time Dysoer) with his new mod, though its not open to the public yet. I've also been trying to stay involved here with the new mod (Cobar Arulean or Har-Rhun), but I really can't do much to help at this point as the development team is loaded with people eager to help and more knowledgeable than me with scripting and such. I also pop in on Arkania occassionally because so many friends are there right now.

I'm not in-game quite as much these days, but I'd love to hear from any of you on messenger.

AIM: muricfearinsen
MSN: knoxjimmy@yahoo.com
Yahoo: muric15

Take care. Hope to see you soon.

Jim (Muric)

Correction -- I do not hate Arkania. I've only been on that server like twice in my life, I can't hate that which I have hardly played on. What I don't care for there is the politics ... and I have seen plenty of their politics posted on their forums as well as on the forums here.

Just to be straigh, I wasn't mocking anyone's mod...just wanted to give foo' a hard time because I know he can take it....and, he's helped me out in the past with stuff, so I guess I shouldn't have, but I couldn't resist. Sorry icon_rolleyes.gif

Ditto exactly to what Jim said...especially to the thread degradation part icon_smile.gif

I'm doing a lot of FR stuff for a mod as of late, but have talked to a couple of you guys. I miss how we all used to party together. I've pretty much found a new home, though, but it's in the building stages.

I'm typically on YM as expansia2001 if you just want to chat, or at expansia2001@yahoo.com if email is your forte.

I hope everyone is well icon_smile.gif

Well hey, why not throw my own hat in the ring here, even if by now things have sort of played out.

As mentioned, I'm involved in setting up a new mod, though honestly I need more time in the day to really work on it. Thankfully we have Balkur and Marcie on the project. icon_smile.gif

My other post in response to Grok's farewell subject heading cleared most of my feelings up nicely, but if anyone gets that urge to talk to me:

LrdRandall (aol)
Darklord R (aim)
darklord_randall (yahoo)

Um, yeah, the names were completely chosen at random... *whistles innocently* Note the aol name would also be for email, but if you happen to contact me that way, make sure the subject heading the first time is outstanding... junk mail seems to be prolific at the moment. And I'd hate to accidently delete someone's message.
