    Default Roll Build Permadeath Guild "Toy Soldiers PD" planning weekly PD runs, recruiting

    A group of us from Khyber have started a pet project here on Wayfinder. Toy Soldiers PD is a permadeath guild with a twist, as in all your characters must be "roll builds", which means you roll for race/class/alignment/gender. We have come up with an initial rule set and framework based on some experimentation and feedback on several lives we started. We are looking for players from any server, preferably veterans who know the game well. If we get enough players at some point we will do a web page, etc. but for the time being we will be communicating through the forums.

    We will run fixed weekly runs on the following schedule:

    FIXED PLAY TIME will be " " " 8:30am to 10:30am EST every SATURDAY and SUNDAY " " ":

    As we are all in different time zones I thought below might help

    08:30h - 10:30h New York
    14:30h - 16:30h Berlin
    20:30h - 22:30h Bangkok
    21:30h - 23:30h Beijing

    Some of us may do bi-weekly events or random login and run with PUGS! Others may want to setup additional fixed times they will run and post here.

    If you have played the grind game for gear, PL, etc. and want something different this may be for you. If you have your 3X uber completionist and get bored running only lvl 28 content but want a fresh approach, this may be for you. If you just want a break from your server sometimes and something very challenging to do, this may be for you.

    We will do some level 1 toons, and we will also run some iconics (level 15 start)

    Here is the basic ruleset for gameplay and character creation: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...80&single=true

    Post this thread if you are interested, as well as typical times you may want to play your PD Roll Build toons on Wayfinder.

    You can also send in game mail to KAWKPHITE or TOOTHCHIPPER on WAYFINDER. We will send you guild invite from there. UPDATE - please get one toon in the guild that you will NOT be playing, as a placeholder toon. ALL toons will be made officers from time to time. The point is that each account should have an officer of his own so that he can invite his other toons to the guild when needed. But that officer toon should be one you just hold as a placeholder (he should not die).

    Hi,

    This sounds like quite a fun idea.

    One thing I've wondered about permadeath groups is, if your character dies and you have to start another which is well behind the main group, how do you catch up? Is it via vet status or iconics, by soloing, or are you just out?

    Thanks.

    Hey Astrican, well on the runs we've done, if a party member can take you to a shrine, or if a party member can raise you (NO SIBERYS CAKES THOUGH, ONLY SCROLLS OR SPELLS), then its not a permadeath.

    So, your only chance of dying is a party wipe, or alternatively if the quest has no shrine and no party member can raise you. In the case of a party wipe, everyone is starting over. In the case of a single member dying in a no shrine quest and no party member can raise, yes, you would have to start over.

    Now, what we are envisioning is that all toons in the guild are PD, that means eventually you should have an iconic or two at spread out levels, and two or three lower level toons spread out at lvls, and you can choose which ones to run with which parties.

    If we find that the shrine and raise dead from scroll rules is making it way too easy, we will nix it eventually and make ANY death a PD. But for the time being it has been challenging running 28 point builds with no gear, no plat, no pots, no past lives on elite content. In all our previous runs every party wipe was due to carelessness (zerging) or champions!

    Come give it a try!

    anyone a night owl? I'm a late night player, this sounds like fun, but the problem I've had with playing PD in general is not having any groups to run with due to my hours.

    I'm fairly flexible.
    Send me a PM and we'll see what we can work out.

    The Ballad of Plucky of PD

    Set sail for Korthos Shores did she
    Brisk breeze blowing in the wind
    Salty spray on a lonely day

    Entering the Crypt of Hayton
    Looking about
    The first chest she encountered
    Fluttered its hinges

    But loot she wanted
    Gold for keeping

    Alas, the first chest she looted was her last.
    Here lies Plucky, salt spray still upon her hair...



    Mimics 1
    Plucky 0

    I'll try it out.

    -Vileone


    MY ROLL:
    ---------------------------------
    1= Male
    8=Warforged
    13=Wizard
    2=Lawful Neutral
    3=Three Classes
    4=Cleric
    6=Favored Soul
    ---------------------------------


    I'de also make a few adjustments to the Rules...
    1. only allow trading if it was from a looted chess in a non-public area, including airships.
    2. You can acquire bags (Ingredient, Gem, Collectable & Augment), they must be empty.
    3. Insert a line after Rule 1, to see if it is an iconic. Have that optional Boolean check

    My reasons for the needed adjustments:

    Basically, Rule #3, can be abused....scratch it!
    --3. You cannot trade with players other than those in your group (or guild)--

    It is also annoying running out of space because of gems & collectable trash.



    BTW, this really reminds me of when i started playing years ago... so far its really fun

    1) We trade items between party members so far.
    2) Yes, we collected the free bags from harbor
    3) No iconics yet, but am sure will come soon

    Default A sad day :-(

    Today a Kobold Shaman Champion nailed the entire group of four and caused a party wipe half way thru Waterworks part 3 :-( There was no way any of us could reach a shrine ... We survived the mimics and what have you not, but that kobold had no mercy ..... "Kobold always rembers Waterworks" came to mind :-)

    Well, on we go .. New toons are in the making already
