Launch?
« Topic Start: August 31, 2011, 04:06:48 AM »
So, I know it was stated in one thread a while back that launch would potentially be set at September 1st. Is this date still accurate for launch or are things delayed?

Also, I've seen somewhere listed that we will be given a certain amount of starting basic spells to begin the game with and that these will be based off of our skills. Are we going to be choosing initial starting skill values or something or how will this be determined? I've seen no place on the actual spell master site to do this yet, and am just trying to get an official update on things.

I've never played a game like this before so am trying to get an understanding of it if at all possible.

Tom will have to answer about the launch date, but you can look at the Skills UI and see that you have some points already there.  They have been accumulating too.

Well I don't happen to have any skill points at all, or have any accumulating, but I guess I'll just toss that up to having only created my account maybe 8 hours ago or so.

Also, I just thought about this, but how exactly will the story telling work? Will we be able to start ourselves in any of the three regions? (North, South, Colonies) or will we be stuck in one to begin with? Also, will we need to start a roleplay such as walkign into a village and attempting to do something, and then have a GM or other character follow up with what we find or whatever or do we do that ourselves? For instance, if I was seeking to find lost magical treasures some villagers might have and I ask around for them, would I just wait to have a GM pick up the NPC part and see how that goes or what?

Having never played a game like this I am unsure, even with the information provided.

Give it time.  You accrue some each day, I think.

Automatic accumulation isn't working yet. I have to do it manually.

That's one of the things that is still missing before we can launch.

One of the most important parts of the game engine now works: Spell trading.

When you view the details of a spell, it will show you a "spell code". You can give that spell code to any other player by any means you like, through the forum, e-mail, IRC, fax, dictate it on the phone, snail-mail, carrier pidgeon, african swallow... whatever you want. If you get a spell code through whatever means, you can enter it at the bottom of your spell list and will automatically learn the spell it contains.

Will we maintain XP accrued before Launch, or will we all be starting over once the game goes live?
