    [​IMG] Alfa is planning to go live on Sept 1st with a full scale Beta test. Expect the Phlan sever to be a part of that. Post here if you want to take part.

    [​IMG] I'm there. Sounds like Phlan has become quite the number one ALFA server.

    [​IMG] What time is this scheduled for? I will not be around until late in the day, so I'll jump in around 9 or 10 EST, if things are still going then. Just send us more details as the date gets closer. Thanks.

    I'd like to have a look. Actually I'm pretty curious to try out the halfling rogue I designed for ALFA exclusively on "ALFA territory" :)

    [​IMG] Ok, a few words of warning:
    This is primaraly for us DMs to shake out the bugs and get them fixed. You may be asked to travel to the next server, just so we can see how that is working.
    The characters you play need not have anything to do with your 'final' characters. They will die a lot, as we adjust the play balance. Such deaths will not be carried over into the 'final' game :) nor will any xps/items :(
    The upsides: You will get to know your way round Phlan and some of its inhabitants. You will see some HCR action and get the feel of multiplay with strangers as your companions.
    Downside: Some may consider this a spoiler and might prefer to wait a month or two for the Real launch.
    I'll let you know more details closer to launch day. Party helmets are available from Matteo's Store, usual prices. :D

    [​IMG] I'm in! Should we make a first level character or something and just have them on standby?

    [​IMG] LOL! How about you make LOTS of first level chars of various classes, you are gonna need them! Seriously, none of us now how the play balance is going to work, that's part of the beta. After about a month introduce your favourite character if you are feeling reasonably confident. Then we can seamlessly move into the 'real thing'.

    I thought we had to create the characters on-line with the server to prevent cheating??? Is that right? Or can I start pre-building them now?

    [​IMG] Before there were computers Mathy, there was pencil and paper. Nothing to stop you working out a few characters before you log so you wont waste time wondering which feats/spells to take and how to allocate your points.

    It looks like there will be ~ 20 servers on day one. A consequence is that, for the Beta at least, the road west from Phlan leads to ... Arabel in Cormyr! So suspend your disbelief. We will no doubt get inquisitive visitors from there so give them a warm Moonsea welcome.

    [​IMG] From Mandos:

    "ALFA pass and addy's will be up on the DB login screen. Go to the (ALFA) home page, click on Member Login and you will see it in front of you."

    When you arrive on the quayside in Phlan, don't be surprised if you are butt naked. Just head on over to the Adventurer's guild and see 'Honest Jan', he will fix you up. Then meet up with some chums and - explore! There's a city and over 150 wilderness areas out there, it makes Baldur's Gate feel like a sandpit!

    Estimated lift off, 10am GMT on Sun 1st sept.
