Thanks to everyone who made it to our chat last night. It was a lot of fun!

If you missed it, worry not, for we will be scheduling another chat shortly. Also, we have posted a chat log here
.

We were lucky to have some fine new people show up, as well as some of the old guard. One thing I'm really happy about is the enthusiasm that we had. If we can channel that onto our server, we will have a great place to adventure in.

If you'd like to contribute as a developer to the site, we'd love to have you. It doesn't matter if you know how to program or script. The NWToolset will be easy enough to use that everyone should be able to make a contribution.

As we await the release of the game, there is plenty for us to do. I have a wide variety of project assignments that I can give, if you'd like to start working now. Additionally, you can feel free to make your own assignment. Whatever excites you most about playing NWN in the Mystara setting is what I want you to be working on. Here are some examples of assignments that are available.

1) Create design plans for towns and areas in Karameikos

2) Design an original adventure (preferably set in or near Threshold)

3) Write NPC dialogue trees (for Threshold or an adventure module)

4) Help write the Mystaran Character Generator (to view, click here
)

Our first priority is the development of Karameikos, particularly the area around Threshold, as that is where we will be beginning our development. I have created a Design Plan for Threshold, and I encourage you all to look at it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

The Threshold Design Document provides good starting direction for where we are headed with the server, and can be used as a template for designing other towns and areas. Much of Karameikos is left to the DM to create and define, and so, that is our job. If you'd like to volunteer to work on a particular area, feel free to email me  or post in the Realms of Mystara
forums.

Speaking of the forums, consider them our primary mode of communication. I'll be in there pretty often, posting topics and replying to whatever you folks want to talk about. Hope to see you there!

Hi everyone,

Welcome (or welcome back) to the Realms of Mystara.  

As some of you may have noticed, the activity on this project has drastically dropped off over the last couple of months. I think the fear that the Bioware/Interplay lawsuit would significantly delay or possibly even prevent the release of Neverwinter Nights took the wind out of a lot of our sails. Additionally, since Vulcano has disappeared that there has been a void in this project. As Lead Developer, he had the leadership role and was in charge of the day-to-day work on the project. I'm not sure what happened with him (his last post to the forums was Sept. 15th), but I hope that he is all right and if at any time he returns, he will be welcomed back with great enthusiasm, I'm sure! In the mean time, his absence needs to be filled, and I have volunteered to take that role. Alphaks has been kind enough to let me do so.

In the spirit of renewing the project, we are planning a chat this Thursday at 7PM CST. We'll be discussing the current state of the project as well as new directions we'll be taking for RoM in it's design and implementation. If you cannot attend, worry not for we will be having many chats at various times over the next few months. Also, any of the topics being discussed at the chat can also be discussed at the forums, so be sure to check those out. The forums are becoming more active, and I make a point of trying to post in there every day.

Finally, I just wanted to say that this project will be a lot of fun and we welcome any help we can get. We are looking for enthusiastic developers who are excited by the prospect of creating a detailed and unique world for roleplaying. I can say with confidence that Alphaks and I are in it for the long haul, and we want to make Realms of Mystara the highest quality server as we can!
