PostSubject: New person, and with lots of questions!   Fri Apr 02, 2010 12:04 am

Hello there, I am new around here. Apologies are in order if this is not the right section to be posting this, but I believe it was right since I will be asking questions.


1. How high of a magic world will be this server? (in terms of creatures, items, etc)

2. In terms of creatures, besides the normal races, will we be able to play more exotic beings? (Dragon kin, Vampires, werewolves, or other sort of magical creatures out there)

3. World length, what am I to expect in terms of module size and its layout? (As of, will it be easy to travel from town to town?)

4. XP from creature hunting (Assuming there will be), Am I to expect fast leveling or a more focused world in slow leveling and deeper character development?

5. Again in terms of XP, will there be an active staff to give out xp for good roleplay? (Activity in the forums with character stories, In-game creativity, etc?)

6. Another question on leveling, will this world encourage power leveling? (As of, will it be a must do to lean into power builds instead of a good roleplayed build to achieve victory in the many plots that this world will run?)

7. What am I to expect of the DMs in this server? (in terms of frequent interaction with the players, will they help us develop our characters in an interesting way?)

8. Will there be encouragement towards PvP? (players being immersed into situations where they'll be encouraged to go beat on other player characters, etc)

9. Finally, do you approve people that are not very experienced with the Dragonlance setting?


This is all for now, and sorry if it appears to be a bad image of me from starters, but when am on a new place I like to ask a lot of questions to know if it is the right server for me to play on.

Thank you in advance.

Hello and Welcome to DLCR.

Thanks for the interest and for the questions.

1. DLCR will be a Low magic server.. Certain chars will be allowed to become high level magical chars as in Tower mages / heads of the orders.. Items will not get above + 3 and limits on additional properties will be set

2. Sub - races will be developed and form part of the module. Vamps and werewolves wont make it in as there are none in our setting but other magical beast / creatures will be made available

3. Size will be quite large. All major points of interest and every major city from the DragonLance realm will be in the mod.. Travel from city to city will be relatively easy but obviously, the further you go from civilisation the more likely the chance of something unfriendly charging out of the trees wanting to make you their second breakfast.

4. XP will be low to medium. This is to ensure each charecter develops a story / plot line, gains memories and experiences that help with charecter development and increases RP

5. It is a policy of the Admin and DM staff to reward high standards of RP when it is seen. Staff levels are still to be decided but the Staff in place are all vastly experienced and more than capable of providing any assistance required.

6. I personally have a real negative outlook on power builds.. and i feel it is similar in the staff here. Powerbuilds are something akin to getting a ticket for driving 50 mph in a 40 mph zone.. Not many people like it but unfortunately it happens sometimes.
Most players can build a big tough kick ass mean machine, but if you wanna impress me then RP me to death Very Happy

7. All DMs will be monitored and evaluated. Player interaction is high priority and on going quests will be frequent, and some will be run over several weeks. Players enjoy DM interaction so it will be done

8. PVP will be the choice of each individual.. No player ever has to PVP. Sometimes it will seem unavoidable and other times will appear to be necessary. Example siege situations when a player is a Solamnic knight and the Dragon armies decide to seige a city. Rp is always required before PVP and an oportunity to avoid conflict will arise. Its down to the individual to decide if the wish to fight.

9. Any DragonLance server will have players of various levels of DragonLance experience. Being new to DragonLance can be an advantage as you will find many players willing to help with sharing knowledge of the realm. It certainly will not be held against you as everyone was new to DragonLance at one point.

You apologised for asking questions and my reply to that is you have nothing to apologise for. The Staff at DLCR are always happy to answer questions, give advice and generally help out in any way we can.

I hope you find that you like the Server and wish you many happy times in the version of Krynn we are creating

This time questions are related to In-depth character leveling.

1. When leveling, are we to expect restrictions as the number of levels taken per class? for example, can we take a single level of a given class, or are will there be a minimum of levels required?

2. When picking a class, will there be a restriction when it comes to power building? (Classic PVP builds such as the monk/weapon master/Shadow dancer and other ones)

3. Will there be any level caps in the game?

4. Are we expected to play a class that makes sense to the chosen Deity/guild/code/sect/group/etc?

Hello again..

1. Yes.. there will probably be some restrictions to prevent power builds from exploiting the charecter build system.

2. Class restriction will applied to prevent power builds etc.

3. No level caps planned.

4. Your class should be " realistic ". Evil chars would not be devotee's of Paladine etc
All Builds will be monitored and " unusual " builds will require a RPed story to back it up

here is a few more... study


1. Is there an announced Beta release date? if so, will it be open to players?

2. Will there be a common spot where people can gather and leave differences behind, as of... a neutral town or something of the like?

3. Will it be possible for each type of race to have a safe place to RP? For example, will someone that wants to play a nature related character start or find a way to a Druid grove?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Again,

1. Beta release date is not set as of yet, still a few things to do. When the mod is ready for Beta we shall announce it and I imagine volunteers from the player base will be asked to test stage 1. Then shortly after the mod will go in to Full Beta Test where all players will be invited.

2. There will be nuetral towns but as they are part of the DragonLance setting they will be full RP areas.. The bad guys will still be opposed to the good guys and vice versa, PVP settings may be switched off to preserve the nuetral setting.

3. All of the Main races ( human, elf, dwarf, kender, minotaur ) will have areas where they are considered " accepted " ( Thorbardin / Silvanesti / Mithas .. etc )
Druids are a Class not a race but I think your asking about areas like Druid Groves or Cleric temples. These will be introduced on an " as required " basis. If we have 50 players and only 1 is a Druid and the other 49 are Clerics, We are more likely to introduce Temples but as more druids appear we will accomdate the needs.

it's been a while since I've been trying to join the server, but somehow, I have difficulty, with all the posts, to find all the Haks I need to play in the server.

Could I get a list of the exact links please? when time permits....
