Worlds of Rhun - Staff and Players sought
« on: January 01, 2015, 08:28:26 pm »


               

Worlds of Rhun is probably one of the longer running (rhunning) Rhun modules.


Going on since maybe 2006/2007ish


 


Basically - we have a large server, lots of features, but only a small player base.


 


Seeking players and Staff


 


 


The Server features:


Realistic Star gate System - 


Allows transportation to 'non-canon' realms within the Server. Brings a Sci-Fi feel to a fantasy universe.


 


Vampires and BloodLines -


BloodLines is a way of siring another player into your clan, the clan leader can then choose enhancements for the clan which are then made on all members of the clan.


EG- A Clan trait could be immunity to sunlight


or


      +50 to Concentration


or 


      +16 to Strength


etc


 


It basically allows players to make their own strain of vampirism - its inspired by Legacy of Kain-esq Vampires


(Vampires also take damage from Water - walking through water will burn like acid)


 


 


Planar System:


Its possible to be in the same place as someone else, but just not on their plane.


As a vampire, you will be able to explore the Spectral Realm  - when/if you die.


As a fae - you can enter the Fae realm through Fae portals (you can summon these)


 


Currently Implemented Subraces include:


 

Drow

Aquatic-elf

Avariel-elf

Wild-elf

Wood-elf

Sun-elf

Gray-elf

Dark-elf

Lich

Vampire

Aasimar

Tiefling

Werecat

Air-genasi

Earth-genasi

Fire-genasi

Water-genasi

Strongheart

Lightfoot

Ghostwise

Imp

Deep

Deepgnome

Tinker

Svirfneblin

Wild-dwarf

Artic

Azer

Illithid

Slaad

Wraith

Troll

Minotaur

Jann

Shadow

Air-touched

Pixie

Werewolf

Daeva

L'cie

Alteran

Ori

Ascended

Dovahkiin

Farseer

Vampire-hunter

Faerie

God

Demon

 


 


 


We also have what I like to think of as a fairly realistic God System in the Server.


Where players themselves can become Gods after completing trials.


 


Gods have 'So much power' - its like a Pseudo - DM Client all through the normal nwn client.


 


Ability to Go Invisible to everyone.


Ability to Teleport


Damaging Divine Energy Blasts


Choose Portfolio's - over 21 or choose from (Become a God of Time, Magic and Death - if you want etc)


Ability to Mark Locations on the Server and teleport to them at will.


Ability to Enter your own Divine Realm


Ability to Enter the Dreams of other Players (they will live out the dream scenario next time they rest)


Ability to Curse Players with an elemental power - its a feat that is multipurpose - but is mostly outside of the players control - imagine Slayer form from BG2 - Its powerful, but dangerous to use : but can become safer to use with practice)


Ability to Create Chests, Bookshelves, Corpses (containers), customize them to make them require keys to open, make them plot or not plot etc.


Ability to Edit Items, change their name, cherry pick item properties, change tags, change descriptions


Ability to Teleport to objects by their Tag (great for keeping track of people who have just picked up a quest item)


Ability to Heal and Buff


Ability to Drain Magical Effects (strips them from target, and gives the god Divine Power at same time)


 


Most of these powers are dependant on 'energy' which is acquired by having player followers or NPC followers.


NPC followers being a finite resource - makes them in high demand - and Gods can actually fight over the hearts and minds of them.


 


Anyway - As far as the Staffing goes - would really like some creative assistance with the God System.


The portfolo system for the Gods requires a God to choose 3 portolfios.


 


Primary, Secondary and Tertiary


 


The God will get all 5 powers from Primary Portfolio  


gets 3 from Secondary


gets 2 from Tertiary


 


This way - a God who is primarily a God of Death will get more Death related powers opposed to a God who's primary portfolio is Earth.


 


This translates into 5x21 spell scripts / effects to create.


 


I've done a fair amount - but its quite draining.


Would really like new staff to have a go at designing some point and click powers to be linked to the Portfolios.


Here are the portfolios that Gods can choose from currently (the system is expandable - so more portfolios can be added easily)


 


Earth

Air

Fire

Water

Order

Chaos

Life

Death

Energy

Magic

Pain

Madness

Demonic

Mind

Healing

Destruction

Time

Darkness

Light

Weather

Blood

 


 


 


 


Anyway - the God System is a bit like my love-child - I've spent loads of time designing features into it.


Would welcome some help in finishing the Portfolio's off.


 


 


 


Also - we have a Rift System:


Planar Rifts can spawn anywhere in the server (outdoors / above ground areas)


These will spew forth planar monsters - until the rift is closed - Its kinda like a real time event, if you stumble across one, you can get good loot and xp from participating in it.


You can kill the rift - get xp for the monsters, or you can farm the monsters for the lifetime of the rift - the latter obviously being harder.


 


 


We have a unique Ritual, Incantation and Crafting System in place.


By reciting incantations or phrases from a ritual - you can trigger powerful effects.


We even have a crafting system where you need to put reagents into the cauldron in the right order.


We have also introduced a Blood Magic System.


You can now harvest blood from NPC's and other players (yourself included) - 


This blood can be used in rituals and quest / trials etc


Eg: If you take 'marks' blood, you can use it in a ritual, to cast a spell on him, even if he is not present.


 


Anyway-


I am struggling to remember everything great about Worlds of Rhun:


Its under constant development - so its getting bigger and better.


 


 


We also allow leveling up from 41 - 50 (potentially introducing levels 50-60 once we have content for it)

Does this require haks? I looked around your forums and couldn't find anything. Also what are your server rules?

Most of the Content on the forum is hak-less.


 


We have an application I developed - called the Rhun Downloader


 


It downloads and installs a bunch of optional content. 


Music, Override Tilesets, Icons, 2DA's, Audio Files etc


 


Without these files - you can still access the game-server - you just wont hear the nice music in some areas, or have access to custom bonus feats and features.


With the files - you will be able to access new custom feats, hear custom music, hear audio, access special areas with new tilesets.


 


The only risk of not using the downloader is that if you try to enter an area that uses a custom tileset, and you don't have the tileset, it can crash your client.


We mark all these risky areas with signs - so the players know if it is a Content required area.


 


Other than the custom content - its really just CEP2.4 minimum.


 


 


As far as Server Rules goes :


We are pretty lax - As long as you are not blatantly attempting to hack your character or use exploits, we really just ask that you have fun.


Many of the players who play on Worlds of Rhun - tend to play solo - but I would like them to try and do group fun more.


 


 


Role playing is encouraged, but not enforced.


Spamming Shout channel - tends to be naughty 


Getting power leveled by other players is frowned upon - we usually ask that players try to be same level - unless the higher level is just showing you around.


 


Any other questions - let me know
