    So, for the last few weeks I've been mulling over an idea for an old school, fully role played, expedition to explore the new lands when the expansion comes out.

    Obviously this wouldn't be for everyone. It would be conducted (as much as we can) in character. I'm thinking over 2 or 3 nights (Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday?), camping/eating/talking whatever during the in game nights, spending the in game days exploring the new lands, gathering the new resources etc etc.

    Sure. It's nothing you can't do on your own much quicker. But this isn't just about looking around the new areas. It would be equally about a solid, old school, role playing experience like from the the heyday of Grd, BoC, -V-, DoT and countless other guilds that are sadly no longer with us.

    So yeah. This thread is just to talk about the idea really and see who is interested etc. Once we know numbers (if anyone is even interested) and the release date of the expansion, we can talk about finalizing things.

    I would love to get in on this - my RP characters have been sadly neglected for years, they're due some attention!

    Awesome. It's looking like a 29th launch still. So once that's confirmed we'll hammer down a date for this!

    The devs now announced that the expansion will be published on Europa on October 8th.
    (29th is just Origin/Izumo)

    Hmm. How's Tuesday the 20th sound for folks? Gives us about ten days for any bugs to settle down, folks to get patched up etc.
