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.

------------------------ ~------------------------
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.

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:

    I have been wanting one for the last few years now and though there are some good ones out there, they all have issues. So I continue to wait for a good one to be made but it should be noted I am picky. Black light bleed issues, fake 10 bit color not for me. Only advice I can give you is screw ACER and their forced splash screen on power up. Nothing like turning on your monitor, seeing your desktop for a half a sec then having to sit through a 5 second AD for a monitor you own. I started a big uprising on their forums and they said they added a feature in settings to lower it to 2 seconds but I have not bought once since so I do not know.

    Typically beta comes after alpha and one with alpha should have all of the testing phases... Have you checked the testing schedule and tried to log in to make sure? 😛 Cheers Grim

    I still play pen and paper (as opposed to computer) RPGs like D&D. If you cannot find a game locally, you might consider trying Fantasy Grounds. (It is on Steam, but I recommend going direct to Smiteworks so that they don't give up a cut to Steam for no good reason. You can then ask to apply your license to Steam after the fact if you really want to use Steam to launch it. It takes some time but they will make it happen.) You should do your own research... buyer beware... and all that. YMMV, etc. For me, I bought FG over a decade ago and it is the best money I ever spent on software. Any software, not just on gaming. Since I moved out of a big city all of my gaming has been on FG. Currently it is possible to use the free demo if all you will do is play games as a player. (Not run games as the DM/GM/Referee/etc.) This limits you to only being able to play (as a player) in games where the person running the game has purchase the Ultimate license (most expensive license). A demo player cannot play in games run by someone with a standard license. If you want to run games the demo is useless to you. If you want to be able to play (as a player) with anyone that runs a game (whether they have the Standard license or the Ultimate license) you can just buy the Standard license. If you want to run games then you can buy the Standard license and run games for anyone that has either the Standard license or the Ultimate license. (You cannot run games and have players on the demo.) If you want to be able to play (as a player) with anyone you do not need the Ultimate license. (The standard license is all you need.) So, if you will never run a game you don't have to consider the Ultimate license. If you want to run games for anyone (Standard license, Ultimate license, and demo players) you need the Ultimate license. (This adds demo players to the pool of players already available to people with a Standard license.) Note that these licenses are just for the FG software and do not bring with it any of the additional commercial content. That must be purchased in addition. (It is analogous to purchasing the various D&D books and you will see, in fact, that the D&D books for the current edition are all available for purchase in FG... as well as resources for various other systems as well.) If you have questions I recommend going to the website I linked above and looking about. Read the FAQ... explore the forum... explore the wiki... and then hit the forum up with your questions. The FG community is very helpful. If you have any concerns about the price of the software, don't buy it. It isn't worth it if you don't believe it is worth it... you'll regret it later. If however you want to be able to game with folks all over the world... this is a fair price to pay IMHO. (I bought the Standard license.) I have been discussing as if purchasing a license is the only option. However, you could also "subscribe" to either a Standard or Ultimate license. This gives you the benefit of the license during the duration of your subscription. I don't recommend it because obviously the longer you subscribe for the more expensive it gets in comparison to simply buying the license. However, as a test you could always fall back on the subscription options. Note that the cost of the subscription won't be applied to the cost of a license as far as I know. I've known some that have gone this route and didn't mind paying for a couple of months of a subscription to get a feel for it and then bought a license outright. There is a Fantasy Grounds Convention coming in October you should check out no matter what you decide. If you are on the fence about purchasing a license, you can register for a game or two during the convention and see the software in action using the free demo. (I haven't checked for this upcoming FG convention, but generally all the games at the convention accept demo players.) If you've already bought in the convention is just another opportunity to get some fun gaming in. Most FG games use something for voice communication (like discord, TS, Mumble, Ventrillo, etc.). Some still play text only games where everyone is typing in real time, but as you can imagine over the years that I've been playing over FG the percentage has swung way over towards voice games as the quality of voice communications improved. Currently, some are using video calls so that you can see each other... that is still a small number but I expect that number will grow over time. Finally, a link to FG youtube. Remember do your own research. I bear no responsibility for how you spend your money. No matter what, enjoy!
