We've been running our dedicated group for a few weeks now, with a slightly-less-than-stable lineup. We are currently looking to fill two available slots, preferrably with a cleric and a tank/pally/other cleric. See our original post below for what the group values and seeks to maintain. Any interest just shoot either myself or jettmorrison a pm. We'll be checking for interested players regularly.
The next night would be this coming Monday, October 15th, 7-10PST. If you're in-game any Monday at that time, and would like to quest with us to "try us out", by all means shoot us a tell. Chances are we'll have room in our party for a couple weeks. We are the "Circle of the Bear" guild, and here are our character names: Cil (wiz), Ramaul (ftr), Ratskin (rog), Philander (bard/ftr)/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
The thrill of discovery, the satisfaction of a challenge met, and the warmth of comraderie! Announcing the formation of a new dedicated group based around group-oriented tactical play, looking for 4 other adventurers.
A little about us:
We are two good friends (cousins) who have played DDO together for a few months now. We have had a nearly lifelong affinity for the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, and both have background with the wonderful pen and paper system. In DDO, we are currently playing our second characters that are both level 5. Our original characters sit at levels 6 & 7. Our second characters were rolled to try out the dynamics of a new server. (Read as looking for better tactical group-play/less running-and-gunning power-gaming) Having only been to level 7, we have not experienced many of the mid-level and upper-level quests. Indeed, one of the main factors driving the formation of this dedicated group is the desire to sustain a continued experience of exploring quests for the first time. Which brings me to my next point…
What we value, and what we are looking to foster with this group:
1. Exploration and Discovery: We find that nothing beats the experience of first finding what lays around that next corner. Rounding that bend and successfully overcoming whatever may be there requires a well-rounded team that is willing to work together.
2. A well-balanced challenge: Quests should be difficult to complete, and should require at least moderate thought and teamwork. Pushing the envelope of difficulty leads to a greater sense of satisfaction. We don't do loot runs and we don't do XP runs. When "the goal is the journey", where are you running to so fast?
3. Shared experience: Isn’t DDO best when you become familiar with other players, when a strong bond is developed over shared risk and experience? A dedicated group provides this to the greatest extent. We look forward to a prolonged series of adventures with a core group of fellow adventurers. We would like the experience to be shared. In other words, member characters should only be used during play with the group.
4. "Honesty" and "Hardwork": No twinking and no use of auctions. What we play with is what we earn together as a group. A balanced challenge is most rewarding, and it's quite possible to skew that balance with twinking and auctions. Nothing will be available to the party except what we can find during our adventures and what we can purchase through regular vendors.
