Question/Idea: OOC Areas

Post by Celadra » Wed Mar 16, 2005 3:27 pm

I was wondering if it would be acceptable to have an area that players can access for OOC conversation/socializing?

Ithilla wont have one...seems to me if you want to chat - get out of game and use a chat client.. dont fill up available slots for real players for chatting.

We have an IRC channel for avlis. I am sure we could involve all of CoPaP in that same way.

That is my opinion, not nessasarily anyone else's opinon, might just be, but that would be a coincodence, and damnit, sometimes the crap I write is not even my opinion either.

CoPaP has an IRC channel too, of course. #copap
Avlis: http://www.avlis.org

"My name is Orleron...a dungeonmaster...two years ago I got shot through a game client...I'm in a distant part of the internet aboard these servers of escaped mental patients...my players. I've made enemies, stupid, and annoying...now all I want to do is make CoPaP a reality, to warn Earth...Look inward(to your monitor) and share the newbies I've seen..."

Arborea has an IRC preasence as well, just is I think only Teleri and I are the ones in there, and Teleri is more than I am.

Same server as Avlis, and most of the rest of CoPaP.

Abyss has an OOC/AFK area one can access via the [afk] command (Talus).
That is the only area where you won't get booted when idle for too long. You get polymorphed, and trading is impossible, but it's a place where you're absolutely free to jaw OOC stuff, or be absent from dangerous areas/spawns while rescuing the kid from the washing machine.. :).

Sometimes I really wish such a place would be avaiable elsewhere, too. Would save on tells ingame, and defenitely allows you to go afk without clothes change.

And yes, you get returned to the spot you left, so it's not a way to escape the spawns you create (no rest area, too...)
