War of Midgaard looking for staff.
Looking for 1-2 Coders and 2-3 Builders to help me build a mud. Details below. A bit about myself, I am a proficient coder and builder so I'm not looking for people to build the mud for me.
Contact: I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via private message(though I don't check those are frequently!)
The War for Midgaard will be a PvE mud focused on grouping to take down large objectives with the option to PvP in later stages of the game. Our primary focus will be PvE with a battle for resources style PvP later on in stages of its development. It will be open-genre, but set in a midevil world where god has forsaken the planet except for one town that is protected by his divine power, Midgaard. The only reason he does is, is that he must sustain at least a minimal presence/control of the human plane of existance to prevent the armies of Hell from opening the gates of Heaven. The story is the battle between Heaven and Hell and clans will be able to declare allegiance to one or the other. Whether we are RP enforced or not, that much has yet to be determined.
The mud will launch with 11 align-unspecific classes and access to level 1-50 including a means by which to level them. As well as a wide range of weapons that have different benefits for each and all classes will specialize in one or two. The classes are as follows:
-Priest(Healer | Clubs)
-Wizard(Nuke DMG | Staffs)
-Sorcerors(Enfeeblers/Magic DPS | Orbs)
-Berserker(Melee DPS | Axes/Dual Axes)
-Teras Kasi(Combo Class, Burst Physical DMG | Unarmed)
-Blade Master(Melee Burst | Swords)
-Paladin(Healing Tank | Sword/Shield)
-Barbarian(Tanky DPS with group Buffs | Any weapon)
-Druid(Tank using animals/polymorph | Staffs)
-Shadow(Glass Cannon Assassin | Scythes)
-Wraith(Planeshfiting Battleflow Controller | Claws)
-Lich(Physical/Magic hybrid DPS | Any weapon)
-Thief(BUFF/DEBUFF adept at moving buffs and attributes around | Daggers)
-Cleric(Enfeebler/Healer | Books)
-While leveling, players will be able to grind quests for bonus XP as well as a currency that can be used to purchase items.
-Notorious Monster spawns
-An Auction House
-Raid(To come later)
-Items from Monsters/Raids will drop into a communal pool for the group that slays the enemy. The Leader, if so trusted, will be able to determine who gets what items or players will be able to cast lots for the equipment or just let the items drop to whomever.
There will be many grouping mechanics to allow players to play outside of the traditional mold of having everyone in one room and fighting a monster in that same room. Auto-follows friendly/enemy within' reason. Unique spamfilters and functions to reduce or enhance prompt usage as well as help the flow of battle seem less scroll-y. Players will not always have to be "following" to be part of a group.
-The combat system will be unique(as far as I know) in a multitude of ways. All weapons/skills/spells will have a range at which they are affective, or usable, at. It will be possible to intiate combat in the same room as someone or from a room or two away. Movement will then be slowed down based on various stats allowing one to engage or move freely throughout a fight. There will be items and spells that will either increase or decrease the delay on abilities to move between rooms. There will be line-of-sight functionality, allowing players to duck out of ranged attacks or spells behind walls or into a secluded room. Battlefields and buildings will be careful designed in this regard.
Evolution of the Game and the Meta:
-The goal of the game, besides leveling and working as a group will be to control the other Kingdoms around the continent. The mud will launch with all Kingdoms being controlled by "Hell's Legion" and clans will have to take the Kingdoms from them, through cooperative play. Once a Kingdom is controlled, new Raid Content, Items, and Territories will open up. Players will be able to control who uses, or doesn't use, this content. Rival clans will be able to declare war and take Kingdoms from other clans as well. Eventually, in an "expansion" the realms of Heaven and Hell will be opened and new classes such as Angel and Demon will exist. And the battle to conquer Heaven or Hell will start. But, on release, I would just like the current content as listed above implemented.
-One time side quests
-I will be starting with a simple Smaugfuss, as it's what I am mos comfortable with and removing the stock areas and classes so that everything is original and hopefully unique.
