Realms of Ravenloft -- The Dying Days [Seeking Development Members]

 

 

Greetings Denizens of the Mist!

 

It is with great hope and pleasure, that my small team and I hope to present to you, (in due time of course), a story driven campaign set in the Gothic Horror realm of Ravenloft. This is a realm of low level, low magic & high consequence. What does that mean?

  • Soft Level Cap at 10 with a hard cap at 12 (It will be very difficult and time consuming to get to 10 and even more so to get to 12)
  • Classes, PrCs, and Spells reworked with the lower level cap in mind. Most quests will be focused on levels 1-8
  • Actions Have Consequences - Everything you do matters. The character matters. Make the right friends (or the wrong enemies) and you can affect the world in mysterious and dangerous ways.
  • A dedication to Characters & Story - We are setting this story in the Dying Days of Ravenloft, and as such, our world is not static. We have changed some of the core principles of the realms and domain but keep that distinctly gothic horror feel. Domains can crumble, Dark Lords can Die, Anything Can Happen. 
  • Meander through Mordent- Our server takes place amongst the bleak moors and abandoned manor homes of Mordent, where the incorporeal brushes uncomfortably close against the veil of reality. 
  • Watch Your Step - an invocative Mist Oubliette system to be implemented, that allows for Rogue Like or randomized adventurers that may not otherwise be possible with a base setting

 

So When Will This Server Launch? 

We are still quite early in our development process. We are currently working on areas, as well as persistence and balancing for the class changes above. 

 

In the mean time, please visit us at http://forum.realmsofravenloft.com to familiarize yourself with our setting and campaign.

More over, here is the link to our discord :

What can you do to help?

We are currently looking for Scripters (Specifically in base systems and persistence) as well as Overworld Area builders (Dungeon , town, and/or interior builders are welcome, but we mostly need someone who can string areas together seamlessly in an overworld fashion).  We are currently looking for 1-2 scripters and 2-3 builders to round out our little team.

 

What do you offer?

I am currently in the position to offer a small monetary remuneration for works rendered over the course of specific milestones. We can speak about this with more certainty through direct messages.

 

With that said, if you would like more information, please message me here, or on The Facebook NWN Community Page (Jessica Lynn) or in the Neverwinter Nights discord Communities as NearEthereal.

 

Thank you.

Darkest Dungeonas well as MTG's "Innistrad" bloc, and Susanna Clark's Jonathan Strange & Mister Norrell were large inspirations for our team. You will notice that some of our music, and loading screens are from these mediums.  Anyone that enjoys these and other works of Gothic Horror and adventure, will likely enjoy the Realms of Ravenloft.

I tease though but I understand what you're aiming for. I was introduced to Magic: The Gathering around New Phyrexia but quickly returned when read up on Innistrad. Both Innistrad and Shadows Over Innistrad are by far my favorite blocks. I just hope Innistrad isn't on the path of being destroyed.

I never heard of Susanna Clark, unfortunately. I'm more geared towards to Stephen King and, especially, H.P. Lovecraft. Horror is my favorite genre as a whole but horror is subjective.

I'm no stranger to Ravenloft. In fact, I played plenty of modules both digitally and tabletop.

I'll stop by once a while to check on your guys' work.

I would definitely reccomend giving it a read, although it's almost 800 pages and has a significant bit of History to it as well. I would consider it more Gothic Adventure than horror, though there are some horror elements. With that said, feel free to check in.  I just added the discord to the main post as well.

What do you mean by reworking the spells with the lower level cap in mind?

Grymlorde, I mean making small changes to spells to bring them into balance with a lower level server. For example, Greater Magic Weapon gives a +1 ehnancement bonus per 3 caster levels. I would change this spell to a +1 per 4 caster levels, for a maximum of +3 at level 12. +2 would move from level 6 to level 8.

Changes to those respects.
