    Thread Name: How about a game ghallanda?? -

    About the Thread:

    Warchimp130 gathered players together for game night back in the days of the Fernia server. The tradition of gathering together for games, such as Hide and Seek, ran all the way to this year. This fun thread is looking for some loving care, and can work well with the forum Events Calendar feature. Adopt this thread to help keep games alive on Ghallanda!

    Default Hmmmmm

    I have enjoyed the information and the feedback from devs in this thread. THank you.

    New spells are in the works for Mod 8, including the Cleric spell "Death Pact" and Paladin spells "Zeal" and "Lionheart." Look at the bright side: good spells for low level characters.

    I was wondering how long it would be before I saw this hit the US page... I really liked it on the Euro page.

    yawn... if I wanted to see this kind of information/threads posted by fellow community members I'd search and read the thread as it's posted.

    I would rather see the WDA or some sort of FREEKIN information from the Dev's regarding this game that I cherish.

    I am, Rameses!

    Well I'll talk with the newsletter fellow and see what we can do to jazz it up a little. I have a couple other "rotating" segments that will make appearances in future editions of the Chronicle as well, just to mix it up a little.

    Tolero,

    If it is just reformatted, I say just throw it in thee after a little intro. Great stuff.

    I hope it stays consistent, I know how easily things like this can be pushed to the side.

    Talking *waves*

    Since everyone seems to be so grumpy this morning *passes out some coffee hoping it cheers everyone up* I want to say thank you for something... I appreciate that you guys are trying to find a new way to get information out to us that meets the needs of ALL parties involved...

    Oh...

    In case anyone is wondering...

    WE ARE ALL WRONG!

    It is sad but true...interesting article huh...(I know I know its a classic but I felt it needed a re-airing)

    See ya in Stormreach,

    In case anyone is wondering (I was), here are the descriptions for the three spells mentioned:

    Zeal
    Paladin 2
    Duration: 1 minute. (Swift casting, like Close Wounds.)
    Benefit: Grants the Paladin a +4 deflection bonus to armor class and increases their movement speed.

    Lionheart
    Paladin 1
    Duration: 24 seconds plus 6 per caster level.
    Benefit: Imbues a single ally with great bravery, making them immune to fear.

    Death Pact
    Cleric 8
    Benefit: You enter a pact with your deity that brings you back to life after you are slain. While under the effects of this spell and after the raise effect, your constitution is decreased by two and cannot be restored until you rest.
    Material Component: Large Diamond, available at spell shops.


    This is from Eladrin's response in the Pally love thread:
    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?&postid=1747999
    You may know me as: Gannot, Gonnet, Gunnet, Ginnet, Gaxxat, Gennot, Gannut, Gxnnxt, Horseface, Izzayhay, Pailmaster, Artifactual, Gynnet and/or Barred. What? I like alts.

    So mod 8 is going to (1) fix handwraps; (2) renovate the harbor; and (3) add 3 spells to the game! Hmmm, sounds like about the same amount of content we received in mod 7.

    It's not Mod 8... It's 7.1. It's just an update. Check the Wiki.

    BTW, you can discuss the wiki here. Just make a thread.
