Looking to start once a week static group
1 SLOT STILL AVAILABLE
UPDATE: We are playing Tuesday evenings 7-10pm Easter Time on Wayfinder.
UPDATE (7-Aug): I have made a few adjustments to the rules to reflect what the current group has agreed to.
I want to start up a once a week static group for either Monday or Tuesday night approximately 7-10pm EST. As I'm looking to have this group start at level 1 & no twinking, any server is fine. VIP or premium accounts are fine, but be aware that you will be expected to have access to most adventures & quests.
I was hoping to shoot for a bit of the old feel of pen-and-paper D&D. Some of the rules are for that benefit, but this is optional.
A few rules I'm thinking about for the group follow:
-: All characters start at level 1.
-: No Twinking.
-: Characters only run in this group. (unless you need to make up for missing a night)
-: All character level together (rather obvious because of previous rule).
-: Share loot among the party.
-: No zerging. I want this to feel like a group of dungeon explorers. That doesn't mean we have to explore every part of the quests.
-: No character items from DDO store. Account level items like adventure packs or shared banks are fine. Cosmetics are fine. Basically, no pay to win stuff.
-: No using XP boosts of any kind. UPDATE: I realize this needs clarification. We are going to try to maintain Bravery Bonus. We will likely run Delera's for Voice of the Master. We may eventually get an XP shrine for a guild airship at some point. We may also try to get Mantle of the Worldshaper. The Master's Gift & Pale Gree Ioun Stone will be up for debate at a later time. We are not allowing Tomes of Learning or Experience Elixirs.
-: Reasonable use of Auction House. Basically, no using the auction house to make major amounts of plat. I'm open to some discussion about this one. I think selling items on the auction house is fine as long as we agree on a reasonable limit for buyout prices (maybe base price). Purchasing from auction house is fine as long as your character has the money.
-: Please handle all your character maintenance outside of the group game time. No one likes to have to wait around for others to empty their bags, buy consumables, level, gather quests, etc.
-: Roll playing will be allowed, though not required. If you don't like to listen to others roll-playing, then this is not your group.
-: To give a bit more incentive to take our time in the quests (& to feel more like PnP), we are limiting the use of rest shrines & resurrection shrines. No resurrection shrines, if someone dies in a quest & can not be revived by other means, the quest fails. No going back to previously passed over rest shrines, unless the quest calls for retracing steps. e.g.: Irestone Inlet requires you go back to Stained-Tusk where a rest shrine is & thus can be used either time.
We are trying for a balanced group, but please feel free to play any class/race you like.
These are the rules as they currently stand. Some may be adjusted a bit as we get further on in our questing.
