Kind of an odd request here, and I don't want to step on any toes..
I am a DM and developer from the persistant world Athas Reborn (persistant world story, website is www.athasreborn.com/forum
We are a heavily modified custom content server using the Darksun campaign setting.
I'm not sure we would 'qualify' for regular CoPap membership, as we are an open server and it would go against our policies to become a passworded server..
However, we have been trying a number of 'character creation' schemes lately with little sucess and a lot of headaches..
During this time, the CoPap autobic system came under discussion, but none of our folks know much about it.
So..I was wondering if I could get some further information on how that character creation system works, and ask if we could have permission to use it, if we deem that it would be compatible with our custom content?
While I agree with the CoPap philosophy, and applaud your efforts to create a controlled environment for roleplay, it would just be, as I said, infeasible for our particular server.
We have two custom 'base' classes, and four custom races at the moment, and without some kind of character creator/modifier IN GAME, it becomes a matter of the DM's creating the characters themselves and uploading them to the server operator..and since most of our DM's are also on the development staff..this becomes a nightmare.
We had planned on using the convocc from the PRC, but it has problems with fighters and humans, and the old version is unsupported by the PRC staff...*AND* since we are NOT..and never WILL BE a PRC server, we cannot use the newest version.
The PRC team (primogenitor himself in fact) had been planning to dev an updated version just for us..but then he got busy with his own teams work, and the plan fell through.
So you see we are between a rock and a hard place here and are hoping that perhaps you can help us find a solution.
Thank you for your kind consideration, and I look forward to reading your replies..positive OR negative.
