Due to the nature of my device, I'll have to post a new IP address every time I turn it back on. The updated one will be in this thread every day.

Server Status: Online
IP Address: 75.209.112.73:5121
No player password
DM client will be unavailable for this showing.

You will be required to create a brand-new character. There are no protective modifications on this module, so players who try to bring illegal items may be unable to log in, or crash the server entirely. I will be doing CD key bans on anyone found crashing it multiple times.

To access the Glorwing v9 module this weekend, you will need to download and install both CEP and CTP.

CEP can be downloaded here: http://nwvault.ign.com/fms/Download.php?id=147417
CTP can be downloaded here: http://nwvault.ign.com/fms/Download.php?id=138060

No other haks will be necessary at this time.

This is the very first phase of feedback testing that we are doing. As you check out what we have, feedback about these areas will be crucial. This is the time to talk about the stuff that will be going into v9 and make changes on it. Once we move on to other phases of development, changes will be more difficult to make. If there's something you really do not like, this is the time to speak up.

This thread will be open for comments for the duration of the viewing. Also, if the module is down for an extended period and you don't see me saying something about it, please speak up and put a time on your post. That way I'll be able to restart it as necessary. The only times it should be down are overnight when I can't monitor it (fluffy DMs need sleep, too).

We are bringing all areas under a standardized system of naming, so there will be no confusion about where you are in the world. All areas fall under these region names with no exceptions anymore. This also helps us properly outline and build the world in the shape it's meant to be in.

In general, the naming convention goes as follows:
Region Name -- Area Name: Subarea Name

eg:
Fertile Crescent -- Crescent Bay: Crescent Bay Inn
or
Frosthorne -- The Onslaught Fortress

Here's the regions of the world, and the inhabited towns within:

Ammon Desert -- Dun-Ammon, New Lyrun Trading Post
Badlands -- Dry Town, Scylla's Crossing, Port Zahan
Crystal Coast -- Victor's Crossing
Darkwoods -- Eldalonde, Lond'noresea
Fertile Crescent -- Crescent Bay
Frosthorne -- Eagle's Nest, Arbar, Tribal Village
Glorwing -- Port Sunrise, New Byrne
Islands -- Blood Bay, Raven's Call
Liana Shogunate -- The Capital
Northern Ranges -- Blacksilver City, Misthorne Bay
The Underdark -- (not fully implemented at launch)
OOC and DM -- n/a
Planar Zones -- n/a

And last, here's basically where each region is on the map:

To all who are interested: When you log in, create a fighter with exotic weapon proficiency. I have brought into the test mod a ton of new gear looks that will be available in v9.

Included in this are things like Chacrams, Carapace Shields, and "KIK ME" sign for a character's cloak!

Any chance someone NOT a computer geek post instructions on the downloads. The first download (on my comp over 2 hours if you include virus checks) never got to the second as I screwed up the first and had to start over! Some of us (ME!) need simple idiot proof instructions!

The two links on the poster will start the DL automatically. If that does not work, please contact me. I have CEP and CTP, with CEP broken into smaller downloads. Hit me up on MSN (chimericrune@hotmail.com) and can transfer you the files if need be.

Just a bit of advice: CEP is around 4.14 Gb unpacked and about 780Mb compressed. It's a big bit of downloading, but it's easy to rig up. Drop me a line if you need help.

I need to shut it down early tonight so I can check up on my bandwidth usage when I get up tomorrow. I have it on an non-unlimited connection, so this is fairly important for me to know.

Anyways, we'll pick this up tomorrow, and we'll have some other material to show tomorrow as well.

The mod is offline for the night, yes, it will be back up and running tomorrow morning. We apologize for the downtime and will try to keep it up as much as we over the weekend (keep in mind, this is not running off the actual GW server but off of a players private machine).

I'll be bringing the server up sometime between 11 and 12 PDT. Sorry for the delay, it can't be helped for today.

Well, I had to take the server down for a minute but it's back.

New IP Address: 75.209.203.4:5121

So, I had another, more bileful post that I was told I couldn't let stay up. So, I'm going to direct this to the people I like: those who can actually post here.

There was an incident earlier on the v9 open house module with people who have been banned on the main forums and on the live server. They came in, posted their bile, and left. Unfortunately, while I saw the person in question in my server window, I didn't know what was going on because I was busy doing some other things IRL to log in and check it out. To all of you who were there to see them in action, I'm truly sorry that I wasn't available to take action sooner. I've set up some added safeguards so that if anything like this happens again I can take action quickly.

The people in question are known on these forums as Scarlet and Beldar. They played some formerly notable characters, but were kicked off the server for their constant disrespect towards staff and griefing incidents towards other players in-game, to say nothing of the fact that they have driven away a number of good, respectable people from Glorwing. With this latest incident, enough is enough. We have upgraded them to permaban status, an honor reserved for them and a very tiny handful of others.

We've come too far to allow such people to ruin this server again. You have my personal promise that we won't let them or anyone else like them drag this server down.

Just to echo Aperion's statements we are all very sorry for this slip in security. We are continuing to take measures that this will not happen again. Though we hope never to have to ban people, in some cases it becomes necessary. When this happens our intention is that both sides go their separate ways. Sadly, sometimes this is not the case and for those friends and fans who have been in today, we'll do what we can to prevent this from happening again.
