MapleStory 2 Chapter Created.

October 6th, Covenant of the Phoenix created a new chapter in MapleStory 2 on the North America East server.  MapleStory 2 will officially launch on October 10th, but people can start playing the game now if they bought a Head Start account. 
MapleStory 2 is a new MMORPG set in a colorful 3D block universe. Vastly different than the original game, MapleStory 2 will allow players to build their own worlds, levels, and share them with each other. The familiar Action RPG combat is back, but this time in a 3D isometric angle.
MapleStory 2 takes place before the events of MapleStory, and the rise of the Black Mage. The origin of the world's life, time, and space are kept in balance through the actions of three Sages, who live in Lapenta. Dark forces, however, broke the balance and put the world in crisis.

It’s your chance to relive the times when conquering an MMORPG server meant something!

If you have additional questions about Lineage II Classic, head over to the Lineage II Classic FAQ.

AD 2460 - Space Strategy Browser Game.

AD 2460 is a browser-based sci-fi strategy MMORPG set in a persistent world.  The game focuses on obtaining resources, developing your home world, and fostering alliances for growth and protect your interests. The game is Free to Play and is not a Pay to Win Game.
Make Your Mark on the Galaxy
Your homeworld is just the start. Claim outposts, engage in research and development, discover technologies and cultures.  Engage in player politics and alliance building in order to gain or maintain power and your interests.
Customize Your Territories & Fleets
AD2460 allows players to customize their own fleets, research technologies their way, and create thir own play styles within the game. Within the larger conflict, these will help determine how players can succeed.
http://www.ad2460.com/
------------------------ ~------------------------
Personal Comments from Damis:
The game is similar to Stellaris and other space strategy games in which the game play revolves around space exploration, managing an empire, diplomacy, and space warfare with other space faring civilizations. If you like those types of games, then you should give AD 2460 a try.  It's free and doesn't take up a lot of time.
The game plays in cycles, in which each cycle takes 2 - 3 Months to complete.  At the end, winners are announced and awards given out.  Seven days later a new cycle begins in which everyone has to start over again.  People are still allowed to play the game during the seven day wait period, which is a good time for new players to learn the game before the new cycle begins.  
The last cycle just ended on Sunday and the new cycle will begin on  Saturday,  September 15, 2018.  This week would be a good time to jump in and try the game out before the new cycle starts.  It would be great if we could get a bunch of CotP members to play the game and form an alliance in the game.  Let me know if anyone is interested in forming an alliance.

Worlds Adrift Chapter Created

Worlds Adrift
The world is broken, shattered from a calamity that time has since forgot. It now falls to you to journey across an endless sky, foraging the remains of past civilisations. Form a crew. Build a skyship. Ally with others to overthrow those that oppose you, and ultimately find fame… or infamy. The future of Foundation will be shaped by your actions - will you help unite the world, or let it drift further into oblivion?
Worlds Adrift is a Community-Crafted MMO with a singular vision: to give players the freedom to redefine a genre. Offering an entirely user-generated environment, the sheer scale of its scope, and beauty of its design, is an invitation to explore. To discover. To unearth…


Countless islands populate an endless sky. What happened? Why? When? Such answers have been lost to the ruins of bygone civilisations. Your only hope is to traverse these strange but beautiful lands in search of an answer. One that’s perhaps best left forgotten…


Have no doubt. The skies are treacherous, and there’s only one way to navigate them - at the helm of your own skyship. But where to find one? Explore the lands and ransack ruins, in an attempt to discover the knowledge of those that came before. Though, the question remains: have you the leadership to rally a crew?



While the shattered remains of Foundation are beyond all hope of reform, the same fate needn’t await you. There are those that dream of a new civilisation amongst the clouds. Will you take up the call, and bring order to the world? Or will you revel in the chaos, to serve your own diabolical gain?


Vast and devastating storm walls span the skies. Survive such tempests, and your troubles have only begun! For all manner of players - from scavengers to plunderers, cutthroats to pirates - also call the clouds their home, forever prowling for the vulnerable traveller. With escape unlikely, your only options? Join them, or turn... and fight!
--------------------------- ~ --------------------------
With the release of the upcoming update "Alliance" it is a great time to hop in as they are catering to larger groups of teamed players.
Contact Trusin for more information about the game and chapter.

Guild Wars 2: 6 Year Anniversary!

It has been several years since I've played Guild Wars 2...  I have to admit though that this is pretty cool.  I'm glad they have kept the game going all these years without going the way of subscriptions or today's common F2P models (or out of business).
 
Update:  They have an anniversary Live Stream going on right now if you want to watch:

But would I be useful and would I get anywhere?

As we work that way... what's the easiest way to find our guild villiage?

 

Such as, I hit a button on the map and it brings up what I assume are a bunch of guild names... but I don't see ours.  Did we name it something else?

For some it's insanely difficult....and with xp loss, it can be brutal.  I'd say this is the most difficult to date.

Hey guys, got the email.  Haven't played a game with you all since 2011 or so, and I think it was SWTOR or Rift, but honestly I can't remember. LOL SO I doubt any of you remember me, and not sure I remember many of you, but I do remember enjoying playing with you all. 

What kind of presence do you guys think you will have in LiF?  Are you expecting a large guild? 

I've been wanting to jump into a good MMO, but there hasn't been a good one in some time.  How do you guys like LiF so far?  Is it a game you can see yourself playing long term?

How is the PvP in LiF?

What is the God's Favor used for?  Any PTW  or other essential items?

Is this game doable as FTP or is a subscription essential?

Howdy yall. Played SWToR with yall a long time ago. Giving this a shot and trying to get Lassider in with me as well. I am currently installing and will head to the settlement when I can. How does the settlement area work with the land that we are able to claim with the subscription? will we get our own land to expand the settlement? Will we get to keep that land after the 30 subscription is over? Looking forward to learning this game with yall. See you in there.

Welcome folks:

Our initial settlement was too close to a server line to turn into a permanent guild village, so we're in the process of finding a new location.  Work on your skills and get to the northern half of the map for the time being.

Vancealot, So the personal 150 tile claim from your subscription can be placed really anywhere, but once your sub time is up you will have to start paying for its upkeep and if you don't have that setup you will lose it.    In order to setup the upkeep you need to establish trade with the "crown" and trade goods for gold.

Thanks Sky. Now for my next incredibly noob question; how do I harvest plant fibers? I clicked on the ground but there is no option to harvest them. I have tried several different locations and the only options I have are: Inspect, Erect an Idol, Track animals, and Build Furniture. Is there something I am missing? Thanks for the advice in advance.

Jump in mumble for faster answers :to_become_senile:

But for fiber, there should be a gather option in there that will allow it.  but it cant be on a snow, rock, sand, or clay tile.

Cancel that, I did not go far enough away from the village to be outside their property. Got it figured out...

Here's the new settlement....mostly flattened already.  We're building huts and designing layout now.  Our monument is up and the land is ours.

Can you guys help me out with these questions?  I'm trying to decide to buy the game or not, and if I do, which starter pack to choose.

Wraith,

So far I have not done any PvP. No idea yet about he God's Favor. Does not appear to be PTW, you basically make everything you want. Only thing I have seen that the sub is necessary for is to not pay "taxes" on your land. But you can set up trade with the crown to get money to pay the taxes. If any of this is wrong, please someone with more experience correct me. GL, so far I am enjoying it; it is challenging to get things done.

I don't know much about God's favor either....seems like something we'll need later on though.  No PTW, just skins and fast xp for sale so far.

Anyone else getting close to making it to the settlement?
