This is a static group hosted by the DDO Cocktail Hour that will be livestreamed on Wednesdays From 1:30-2:30 PM EST on the Argonnessen Server. (That is 12:30-1:30 CST, 10:30-11:30 PST, and 6:30-7:30 London Time whatever that is in time talk!) Starting next Weds at June 11th 2014!
Tune in at Lessah101 on Twitch or SamiusGurobo on Twitch
The rules for this group
will be very different and unconventional.
Members: Samius, Jerry, Grimm, Rach, Lessah, Mike, (One alt BonnieBew)
No twinking. That means No Auction House, No Shard House, NO VENDORS (Weapon, clothing, jewelry, potion, wand, scroll. Basically, if you can buy it, just walk away.) Here is the exception: Spell components, crafting materials from the crafting hall, arrows/ bolts/ missile weapons incl the ones that are sold in House D.
No grouping outside the static group. You will be dedicated to the “Summer Fling” group until school starts back up (August basically). (Soloing for make-up XP is ok, farming for collectibles and potions i.e. picking Lily’s in the Tangle Root Gorge for Remove Curse and Cure pots is ok, farming the named minotaur or the named skeleton in TBC for the hand wraps or the Hand Canon is ok, just don’t overdo it and use good judgment. Know when to say when.) Note about this! I want this to be fun and a tiny bit challenging. I want you to yearn for items. If you find yourself missing something in your inventory or from your character. GOOD. Then the group is working as intended! So be careful when you think about farming something! Ask yourself if you really need it or if you can live without it.
We level together, so if you collect xp on your own, you will have to bank that XP before the group is ready to level.
You play with only what you find in quests. Group sharing is ok, crafting is highly encouraged. The vendors are off limits!
NO DDO STORE. No stat tomes, no extra inventory slots, no bank slots, no crafting materials. (Already existing companions on your account are ok.) Here is the exception! You can have cosmetic hair. Samius is a big GIRL so you can buy hair dye (but if you pull hair dye from a chest you must eat it immediately regardless of color) Buy at your own risk.
NO DAILY/ WEEKLY DICE. You are welcome to roll the dice on another character or save the dice prizes on a mule for when the group disbands.
We start at Level 7.
If all six players do not show up, we will fill the group with a hireling from the market vendor or an alternate dedicated to the group. Time is very tight with this group, so if you are late we will have already started. The group starts on time. Just jump in when you log on and be judged.
This is a Twitch group and all play sessions will be on the live stream. Additionally, so that all players can be heard over the live stream (and to make it more entertaining), we will be using skype! You can download skype for free at skype.com.
Death. This is a great topic! We are not a Permadeath group, but cooperative gameplay is rewarded while zerging and taking my XP with your demise is discouraged.
If you die, you must suffer “The Walk of Shame”. Remove your armor/ robe and continue the quest naked. (You will be allowed your non-visible gear and any weapons/ staff/ scepters in your hands)
If you suffer a second death. You are to move to the back of the party and go into “time out” and think about what you did. When the quest is over, you must go to the tavern naked as penance for your death. Once in the tavern, you will be allowed to wear your clothes again! Do not worry, your Walk will be on the Live Stream and I will Tweet about it so everyone knows! Remember, it’s Shame, not Fame!
1. I want to join,
but I don’t have the ability to roll a level 7, can I join the group with an
already established level seven character?
Yes! But I ask that you start naked, and I
do mean naked. Unload all of your gear, stat items, and weapons, the
group will outfit you as it goes along! Please avoid buying tomes from
the DDO store.
2. What if I miss
a day due to real life?
Please try your best not to miss! But if
you do miss, you will be responsible for making up that XP, the same rules will
apply so your make-up session will be on your own (minus one hireling!)
3. Can I buy bags
to hold more collectibles/ ingredients from the DDO Store?
Turn them in for goodies, put them in your bank, destroy them. Figure it
4. But I have
tomes from the anniversary card game to use!
Great! Use them on another character or wait until the end of the summer.
5. Can I do the
DDO Store quest on Korthos that gives me a spirit cake?
Just no. Stop asking!
6. Can I use the
bonus ticket that gives me a crafting XP elixir and slayer boost pot?
Use it and give the items to another character.
7. Can I use ship
What is a ship buff? <<<that
should answer your question. Conversely, when we earn House P favor, we
will be using the “buff table”. That is almost as good as ship buff, but
not really! XD For the purpose of this group, I would like to form
a temporary guild. “Summer Fling”
8. Can I join the
Summer Fling guild with my level seven character, “side car” level along with
you, and join if a regular player does not show up?
I’d like to leave this to the group’s
discretion. I don’t mind. But all the same rules will apply to your
side car. If the regular player shows up, you must relinquish that
player’s spot once the current quest is completed.
9. What does your
group need most?
I already have a Druid and an Artificer and
cleric. Pick something!
10. Why do you
have so many rules?
