Default Shared Adventure 1

I'm going to try something different. For those that would like to participate, I'd like us to have a shared adventure. Basically this means starting with the same character and world (attached to this post), playing through that world, and sharing your stories with everyone of what happened.

I think this will be fun for everyone that participates and it should be useful for me from a development standpoint.

To play: download the attached zip file, unzip the file, and put the 3 files into your chars directory, play that character for just that world, and then post your results.

Chars directory:
Win - C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Zombasite\User
Mac - /Users/YOUR USER NAME/Library/Application Support/Zombasite/User
Linux - ~/.local/Zombasite/User

Post whatever you think is interesting: how you developed your character, interesting events, unfortunate deaths, what the other clans do, etc.

I started out taking the P2 quests as I usually do so I can find out where to solve them. I meet a lieutenant named Con the Shadow who isn't that tough. Find a couple more, kill them, taking on berserk skill for speedy attacks.

I met the Horde, who seemed very unfriendly at first, then said 'Maybe we can be friends' when I killed one of their enemies. They got to really liking me after I killed another. Not fearing a raid from them atm. Another clan gets knocked off, isn't the horde or killed by the horde. I haven't yet had a look at the clan ratings.

Meet a traveler named Murrin who needs an escort to the Grimalkin forest of Clutter. He seems fairly competent at keeping himself alive. Glad he doesn't turn out to be a pirate or smuggler when I bring him to the place. While we were travelling together, we met someone who was being held for ransom from a zombie. I opt to ransom them, after which they begin to attack the ransomee and then me. Ransomee smartly opts to avoid combat with the zombie. We manage to kill the thing after using up all my health pots.

The nemesis in the area sends a regenerator to my location, some sort of werewolf character that proves very difficult to kill, and with a lot of firepower in the way of fire bolts. Starts burninating and zombifying the peasants. Wenni (or whatever her name was) got the zombie bug. I die to the regenerator, at which point another clan member steps up to fight it. I go to find a pillow to cry into, as I'm only level 5 and have already suffered my first death. Pull myself together and help the clan member to defeat the regenerator, who drops some stuff, nothing impressive. Craft down and repair my equipment. Then invite the zombie-ridden clan member and cure her.

Was a fun session, even though I managed to get myself killed. I wasn't expecting to tank with berserk, of course, but it would've been appreciated if my clan members jump to the defense of the healthstone (and me) before I bit the dust.

I didn't realize that the warrior's aoe had been removed from the skill tree, otherwise I'd usually pick up that instead of the passives I took to back up my berserking attack power.

P.S. The game seems to be running much better on my machine than it was before the recent patch.

So far I've managed to get my NPCs back to working order, ally with Order of the Moon, get dragged into a war with Dragon Claw, destroy Dragon Claw, and recruit too many people so that we are now rationing food.

Right from the start, I learned Power Strike, and resolved to start by increasing Strength, Dexterity and Vitality while attempting to keep them equal.

Nothing much happened until I ran into a ghost who tasked me with killing Boneville the Beast. The reward from that quest took me to level 2, and allowed me to equip most of the loot I found in the two chests next to Boneville.

Soon afterwards I found the Order of the Moon, and learned that I had already completed four of their quests. This allowed me to sign a mutual defense pact with them, and get to level 3.

I had already spotted Kelly, who needed escort to a nearby cave, and once I got level to 3, I asked him to follow me. Instead for the cave, I headed to where Wina was held captive, and rescued her. This took me to level 4.

Sadly, a group of night clan stalkers killed Kelly with a salvo of shuriken. I went back to the clan's camp, and took Wina to adventur ewith me. By the time I made it to the Grimalkin forest, I was level 5, had met the Horde and had learned Whilrwind.

I met Murray, who needed escort to the Grimalkin Forest of Clutter. Unfortunately, there was no direct way to the North, so I spent some time looking for a way from the East. That led me to meet the Dragon Claw. We found a way to Murray's destination from the East, and managed to remove Fully's pertrification while getting there. All of this allowed me to reach level 6.

I entered the Scowling Den to look for the ingredients to cure the Festering Doom and to unshrink Fully. While down there, I recruited a ranger with Foraging skills and a Rogue with Trapping. Once I had cleared the Jackals' problems, and reached level 7, I set out to discover the rest of the clans. It was too early to commit to a weapon type, so I just learned how to focus on Dealing Damage.

On the road to level 8, I discovered the Horde and Eternal Darkness clans, and recruited a commoner with a wide range of skills: butchering, acting, herbalism, glassblowing, and carpentry. I also picked up a few defensive skills: Parry and Blocking.

When I reached level 9, I realized that I had not done anything interesting in half an hour, that I had not met any new clans, nor faced a monster that was in any way a challenges. I looked at the fourteen semi-explored wilderness areas, which were generating more quests, and remembered why I do not play anything but tiny areas, unless I can start them at level + 15. So this is all for me. I'll attach a screenshot of the map.

My clan was at eight strong: the player character, two deadly rogues in his party, and five other members, all of which had foraging skills of some kind. Or food usage was a 65%, and we were foraging way more than we were eating in an hour. We were, of course, in mutual protection pacts with all other clans.

Basically the area was under control, but I had overleveled for it.

I got Kelly killed also.

Since I don't usually play warriors, I wanted party members asap, but Wina was a hostage and Fully was petrified, plus I quickly caught festering doom. So, I looked to free Wina first. I got the Kelly escort quest, and being in no hurry to get to her destination, used her as a party member until I could get Wina. Then with Wina and Kelly, got the festering doom cure.

I quickly found the Horde and Order of the Moon, got friendly with each, but within 10 mins, the Horde had wiped out the OM. Met the Dragon Claw a few minutes later.

Had the opportunity to pick up Eugenio the conjuror, Lawford the ranger, and Dory the rogue, but they didn't appear to have any skills, so they were politely refused clan membership.

Kelly served the clan well, but died of poisoning a mere few feet from her destination.

Right now Aldan is level 6, with no exceptional equipment, and no deaths (I play mostly hardcore). He has two levels of focus and one level of whirlwind. His next tasks will be curing Fully and getting a couple of useful clan mates, although he may not have much time for this before the weekend.

Today the Horde started raiding my friend Order of the Moon so I started raiding the Horde to save the Order. What does the Order do? They start raiding the Horde and get themselves killed. I'm now alone in the world again.

I went South out of the town and killed Boneville the Beast, now Level 2.
Problem: ClanGoodFirstInsult2

Found Kelly and left her there -- but healed her. She followed me killing things a bit. Aggressive for someone who wants an escort.

I went to the town next door, took their portal home, dropped off loot. When I went through the forest portal, there was a swarm/ambush, so I did what any good adventurer opening a door and seeing a dragon would do: I closed the door. (went back through the portal).

So I went out the town gate, killed Malo the Lightning Weilder, now 4th Level. Finally spent points -- Savage Strike & Bloodlust. Have already been 1-shotting things with a decent sword, so figure I'd save that for mini bosses and exceptional creatures. And those damned rogues.

Left Murris quest alone -- just killed what was around him and kept going to make the area safer.

Rescued Ham. Why when you rescue people are they not in your clan?

Added Tate to my party --> random real person out in woods I guess. Rogue.

Run around a while cleaning up area, then pick up Kelly after I figure out where she wants to go. Heal Murris on the way past him. Go in the den, cash in Kelly quest but she almost died in the Grimalkin Forest when I overshot the turn for the den. Escort success = Level 5. Add Arms Mastery.

Get a bag at a wishing well. Woot.

Problem: Was able to kick Fully out of clan (still petrified) and it actually solved the quest for me. hah.

Grab Murris and venture off to find the Grimalkin Forest of Clutter.

OM asked for non-agression pact. Accepted.

OM destroyed by Horde.

Get to the Grim Forest of Clutter - cash in Escort quest.

Get Zombie 1 infection, and had active potion too. A couple heal potions don't work, try to live with it for now.

Laggy.

Z1 infection cured by wishing well in dungeon while looking for gravestone.

Amorphs in dungeon seem to be dropping a goodly amount of healing potions & food.... or is that just me?

By end of evening I'm level 7 and only have a few quests of my own left to take care of. And the Horde & I have a non-agression pact.

I'm up to 7 NPCs in my clan, but the strange thing is that 4 of them are married.

I had 7 -- but Maria & Tate were fighting, and Tate was adventuring with me (Rogue) -- and Maria was just entertainment and undesirable personality (so far). There was someone who let a monster in, I had a feeling it would end up being Maria, I excused her from the clan.

Suddenly everyone's talking and having a good time in the town and happiness is going up.

Can't find the hint about the monster ally though. I know a fix is coming up -- just annoying. Same with who poisoned the food etc. Couldn't find it. Pretty sure the quests were for my clan.

Now level 9.

One thing I find annoying is when I'm looking at minion's items and it says "In Inventory" for their item. Can that be fixed? Their item isn't in their inventory -- they have it equipped. That whole thing does leave something to be desired -- it's annoying to try to look at minion's equipment, on many levels.
