Threshold RPG REUNION - Aug 31(Fri) ->Sep 2 (Mon)

Threshold is hosting its first ever REUNION CELEBRATION.

August 31, 2012 (Fri) through September 3, 2012 (Mon).

This is a reunion for players AND characters new and old. Even if you haven't played Threshold for 15+ years you are cordially invited to return and have fun over this special weekend.

On Friday, August 31st we are bringing up a separate copy of Threshold for this reunion celebration.

Some special rules will be in place:

1) Create your favorite character that you ever played. Maybe this is your current character. Maybe this is an old character. Whatever you want!

2) Every deity that has ever existed in the pantheon will be available.

3) Clans can be formed at will.

4) Clerics can choose a deity and players can join a religion at will.

5) No PK for the first 2 days (Fri and Sat).

6) Experience Rate: x10

7) Coin cost of training: FREE

8) Everyone has 10 storage slots in their personal armory.

9) Everyone has citizen channel access.

10) Starting Sunday, the game becomes "perma death." If you die, you revive in an OOC room that only lets you chat on OOC channels.

IN GAME GOALS:

1) Have fun. Tons of it.

2) Don't just become the dominant religion, become the ONLY religion. Starting Saturday night, the lowest ranking religion/deity will be destroyed. On Monday night there will be only one deity left in existence. Threshold Reunion Server will become Monotheistic! :P

3) Become the true Hand of Vindicator. As with religions, we will start disbanding clans on Saturday night based on clan ranking. We will do this until only one clan remains.

Obviously there is quite a bit of RP potential in goals #2 and #3.

Aside from that, there will be a variety of events, contests, and general craziness. Even if you aren't interested in the gaming part of the Reunion at least login to hang out in the OOC party room and the OOC channels. We would love to hear how everyone is doing and what they are up to.

If you have any questions or concerns about the reunion, please send me an email: threshold@thresholdrpg.com

I am so gonna borg up to hegemon in a single weekend. But first things first. Have I enough supplies? Let's see. Two tons chocolate, three kiloliters lime lemonade, two internet connections and a 3G for backup in case they both go down... Yep, I think I'm ready. We are on the Threshold of insanity!

Re: Threshold RPG REUNION - Aug 31(Fri) ->Sep 2 (Mon)

At approximately the 9 hour mark:

  • The two highest level players are both Psions.

  • Vindicator already had to violently disband a clan.

  • Someone has already been nuked.

  • Calypso was the first dominant religion.

  • Some of the older vets (or at least older characters) who have already logged on:

    • Aelyn
    • Samadhi
    • Sajek
    • Soji
    • Griswyl
    • Shanloh
    • Irise
    • Arkenstar
    • Stonefire
    • Kerridwen
    • Imoshen
    • Kayia
    • Sworky
    • Pelendrathor
    • Cyrinne
    • Wyden
    • Arethesus
    • Blog
    • Tilarin
    • Bandle
    • Tons more. Too numerous to list!

  • We are hoping to get some detailed about the most legendary case in Threshold jurisprudence, REX v. BANDLE

<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>


A cacophony of horrific sounds echo across the face of Threshold.

All living beings grow momentarily dizzy as their inner balance is disrupted.

The church and divine entity known as Bilanx are no more.

<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

The seas settle into an eerie calm and all things seem to fall perfectly into
place. The perfect song of a beautiful songbird echos across Threshold in
perfect harmony with the ambient sounds of nature.

Ten thousand charlatans fall to the ground in growing puddles of blood. For
each and every scam they ever pulled a deep gash rips open in their flesh.

The Realm of Threshold becomes a more orderly place as the once divine being
known as Gethsemane ceases to exist.

<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

You feel a painful burning deep within your being as if your Spark of Life
is threatening to expire. You double over in pain and find it difficult to
take a full breath.

Flocks of birds fall from the sky - dead before they hit the ground. City
streets are littered with corpses as the weak and the sick fall prey to their
ailments and perish. They begin to decompose rapidly, and the foul stench
hands heavy in the fetid air.

The Divine Lady Vivoria is no more.

And then there were 12:

Code:
<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

A thousand politicians refuse to accept bribes while a thousand whores close
their doors and refuse service to the public. Another thousand moneylenders
prick their fingers on the edge of a coin and their blood is fatally poisoned.

Your loins grow cold as you are filled with a chaste feeling of emptiness.

The Goddess Bast, Lady of Greed and Vice, has been destroyed.

Code:
<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

Time stands still and for a moment you are unable to act. Your heart stops
beating and your lungs become incapable of drawing in breath.

And then it starts again - this time with a sense of endless possibility as
if your fate is no longer written in stone.

The Lady of Time, the Goddess Chronos, has fallen into oblivion.

Perhaps this was inevitable.

An unsettling chill settles over the homes of people of every race and every
kingdom. Campfires suddenly extinguish leaving adventurers without light or
warmth.

Gnomes working away in their workshops lose all inspiration and creativity,
and with a sigh simply set down their tools and trundle off home.

Herastia, Goddess of Home, Hearth and Invention has ceased to exist.

Re: Threshold RPG REUNION - Aug 31(Fri) ->Sep 2 (Mon)

I am a sentimental old fool. ~200 people have created on the Reunion Server - many of them people I haven't seen in YEARS.

I feel like if I end the Reunion Server, I won't see some of you folks for another pile of years.

ONE MORE NIGHT!

Tomorrow night (Wed, 9/5), all hell breaks lose!

<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

Trees wither and fields of wheat turn to chaff as the forces of nature grow
weak and decayed.

Rivers, lakes, and oceans are polluted by the carcasses of death fish floating
on the surface and a great pestilence spreads across all of Threshold.

People of the land fear for what the future may bring. A future where nature
can no longer be tamed by mortalkind. Silvanus, God of Nature, Weather, and
Storms no longer exists to provide this guidance.

Make love, not war?

You'll have trouble doing either.

Tempest and Erosia are both dead.

Snake eyes.

Lady Calypso, Goddess of Magic and Luck is no more.

Mages, Sorcerors, Templars, and Necromancers fear that their powers will
inevitably weaken without their Goddess to preserve it.

Families of adventurers who know fortune favors the daring are now less
confident they will ever see their loved ones return.

Every deity that Cyrinne has ever served is now dead.

<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>---<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>--<>

The terminally sick linger in agony, desperate for the sweet release of death
that never comes.

Soldiers at war limp back to their encampments, gruesomely wounded and yet
somehow clinging to a pain wracked life.

Death: one of life's greatest gifts when the time comes that you need it. What
happens when there is no being powerful enough to ensure the natural order of
things? Who will guide your soul into the Afterlife?

Lord Mortis, God of Death, and the Underworld, is no more.

The night sky grows dark as the moon fades into nothingness.

Kylamane, Goddess of Ice, Winter, and the Moon has perished.

Who will light a candle for her passing. Will anyone care?
