General Discussion / Forum Move (once again!)
« on: February 19, 2011, 05:00:24 PM »
So I manged to scrape this forum from the old server and update it from a very outdated PHPBB3 Beta over to Simple Machines. Yay!  There are some small conversion wildernesses (on top of the conversion wierdnesses from the previous conversion...), but most things copied over.  Let me know if you have any trouble.

User registration is still disabled, and will remain so unless there's some renewed interest in this place.  If you want an account, email me at xorlak -at- darkagegames -dot- net.

User account logins should still work fine, but due to the forum software switch, you'll have to put in your password twice the first time. (I think it does some conversion thing.)

Enjoy!

Dark Age Games / DALpedia updates
« on: May 17, 2010, 06:02:07 PM »
I just finished overhauling darkagegames.net and migrated it to a new server.  I wanted to keep DALpedia here on MS though, which means it gets a new subdomain:

http://dalpedia.mysticsoftware.net

I have a redirect set up on DAG though, so most of the old links posted here should still work.

Also, I finally added Chapter 19 to the archives (sorry for the delay!) and fixed somethings like the "BIG Page". And just for fun, I downloaded the whole RP and pasted it into Word to get a word count... it's 1,620,000 words long!!  To compare, most novels are something like 50,000-100,000 words. ;)

Dark Age Games / Dark Age Legends, Chapter 19 -- Sign Ups
« on: November 29, 2008, 05:24:59 PM »
Welcome to Dark Age Legends, chapter 19 sign ups! Chapter 19 will pick up where chapter 18 left off, but due to the break in the action, this is an excellent point to jump in if you haven't already. If you haven't been following the story the entire way through, don't worry. You are not expected to read the entire RP-- just the rules below. However, if you never played in a forum RP before (particularly this one) you may want to read a random page or two in the middle to get a sense of how everything works.

Chapter 16 Prelude

Three years have passed since the Dark Emperor Retan was defeated by an inexplicable column of light from the sky.  Since then, the limping nations of Gaian have banded together to prevent another such power from threatening the world again.  Thus the Gaian Federation was born...

Yet despite their combined numbers, they are still no match for the same burning fire from the heavens that destroyed Retan... The Kandarinian Sovereignty has risen from the ashes, a new and stronger nation, hungry for the power the Dark Empire once wielded and more...

Rules

Dark Age Legends Rules

All players must read and understand the rules.  Continuing Chapter 18 players can give them a brief skim, as there are no changes from last time.

As per usual, update/create your character's bio page in DALpedia, then post a link to it here.  New players post here first, so we can approve your characters.  New players will also need to contact me for a DALpedia account.

Remember!

Previously we decided it would be best to tie up the remaining plot threads and "start fresh" sometime soon (probably next chapter) by jumping ahead some long period of time.  There has also been discussion that this may be the final chapter of the RP altogether.  Either way, the current era of plots is about to end so it's time to start wrapping things up in a grand finale.


Chapter 19 begins in a week or so, depending on if people are ready to start up again.

General Discussion / Server Move and MS Hosted Sites

We'll be switching servers in a month or so and in the process we will be cutting down the unused hosted sites here. (I.e. nearly all of them.)  If you have a site hosted here at MS and would like to keep it, please post here or contact me in some way.

Plot point for discussion!

In the last sign-up topic we decided it would be best to tie up the remaining plot threads and "start fresh" sometime soon (possibly next chapter) by jumping ahead some long period of time.  So let's start wrapping things up.

I'm thinking the villains simply get defeated and we jump several generations ahead to a point where things start getting interesting again, where we start with a (mostly) new set of heroes and villains.  Probably 100 years or so.  This is all up for discussion of course.  Thoughts?


Chapter 18 begins in a week or so, depending on if people are ready to start up again.

Dark Age Games / Dark Age Legends -- Four year anniversary!
« on: March 23, 2008, 05:28:29 PM »
Moving on to a more positive note, DAL turned four years old on the 21st!  Two days late, I know... I *knew* there was something about the 21st... but just couldn't put my finger on it. (Heh...)

Here we are recovering from the great DALpedia image crisis (gah...), and Chapter 17 is on the horizon.  (I am seriously loosing count.  I need to check each time... Heh...)  Was looking back at the previous year and speculations on what would happen before the next anniversary.  Fun stuff!  Any favorite moments from the past year?  Accomplishments?  Personally I'm glad to have finished the Velken story arc all the way through.  Was the most effort I've put into DAL to date, and was pretty much the only one I wasn't "playing by ear" most of the way so-to-speak.

Dark Age Games / ...?!! Blast it!! (DALpedia images)
« on: March 19, 2008, 11:22:47 PM »
For some odd reason, today I found that darkagegames.net had been wiped clean.  The database was fine, but all my files were deleted.  This included DALpedia.

Not the end of the world.  I simply re-uploaded everything.  Since the database (posts on my site, DALpedia articles) was intact, I managed to get everything back up and running in an hour.  Problem:  Since users upload images to DALpedia independently, I don't have a backup of those, meaning we lost every single image uploaded there... Blast it!!!

Images can simply be re-uploaded by visiting the image's page (like this) and clicking on 'upload a new version of this file'. This is of course a *huge* pain, but there's nothing else we can do.

*is not having a good week.  Or month for that matter...*

If you haven't been following the story the entire way through, don't worry. You are not expected to read the entire RP-- just the summary and rules below. However, if you never played in a forum RP before (particularly this one) you may want to read a random page or two in the middle to get a sense of how everything works.

Chapter 11+ Story Arc Prelude

Gaian has been plunged into darkness.  The evil Dark Emperor Retan has returned with a horde of minions from other worlds, sealing up the heroes of Gaian as punishment for his past exodus.  Forming an unholy alliance with the Kandarinian Sovereignty, the two unchecked nations have run rampant, unleashing their fury upon the globe for the past 18 months.  The world is dying.  The darkness that was once confined to the Dark Continent is spreading.  Vicious creatures now run rampant across the land, sky, and sea.  All know and fear the Dark Empire?

Those that remain free from the tyrannical rule are few and far between.  Small pockets of resistance.  Small bands of freedom fighters that struggle to remain hidden, let alone survive...

Planned Event!!

Sometime near the beginning/middle of this chapter, the Dark Empire is going to launch a full scale assault on Tjed.  Although not required, to maximize the fun-ness, I recommend everyone to move at least one character over there!

Currenly Tjed has only been harassed by the Dark Empire.  Lizard Men already run rampant on the island, and the only safe places left are the capital city of Tjedon, located in the center of the island and surrounded on all sides by very steep mountains (this is the same place the Mavas battle took place in several chapters ago), and the network of tunnels born deep into the mountains (which may or may not contain a super secret base of operations!).

Most of the citizens have retreated to one of these safe locations.  Although the lizards are strong, there is currently too few to properly take the island.  (This will change when the real assault begins, obviously.)  As Ven mentioned, the Tjedians have had at least one encounter with the Velkens (ending in disaster, of course), and are therefore deathly afraid of them.

More info on Tjed here.

Chapter 12 begins in a week or so!
