RAMPAGE IS UPON US!
RAMPAGE IS NOT HAPPENING ON THE MAIN GAME IT IS HAPPENING ON A DIFFERENT SERVER. DO NOT RAMPAGE ON YOUR CHARACTER ON THE REAL GAME OR IT WILL BE CONSIDERED AN IC ACTION!!!
We are running a special RAMPAGE MOO to celebrate Halloween AND to stress test potential new server code (ToastStunt) which is running on our development server Boa.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
We are running this on a DIFFERENT SERVER with a DIFFERENT ADDRESS. It is NOT going to affect the main game. The main game will continue, and you can continue roleplaying on it.
DO I HAVE TO RAMPAGE?
No. You don't have to join the rampage.
HOW DO I CONNECT?
You connect via the Boa webclient located here: http://boa.sindome.org/
Warning: You need to use the button 'connect manually' as you won't be able to 'login' like you do with the normal website. When the splash screen shows up just 'connect charnam password'
Or via a MUD client:
boa.sindome.org port 5555
WHAT DO I DO ON RAMPAGE?
You connect, you use the free 1000ue you were granted, then you use the free 50,000 chyen you were granted at one of the RAMPAGE VENDING MACHINES spread throughout the game to buy some weapons. Then you go attack everyone and everything as you see fit. You collect more gear, and you kill more people. Oh, and you try to survive the zombies.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DIE?
You'll go through the cloning process like normal, though it will take less time. And you can't perm. Everyones clone was auto updated at the start of rampage!
ARE THERE ANY RULES?
- Have fun and don't be a jerk OOCly.
- Don't share any IC info -- this is an OOC event
- You can 'roleplay' your character but none of things that happen during rampage are canon
- You don't need to roleplay your character if you don't want to (though it may be more fun to turn your character up to 11 and play them that way)
HOW LONG WILL THIS LAST?
We are doing this to gather performance and stability data. If the game crashes after 30 minutes, rampage over. Though we hope to keep it online for a day or so.
IS MY CHARACTER IN THEIR APARTMENT/CUBE?
No. Everyone starts in a coffin. You have the gear you had on you, but apartments have been reset. Markets have also been reset. NPCs still have some gear but everyone of them has 50k on them. We do this so we don't expose too much info about the state of the game and who has what, during rampage that can be used in the real game.
I JUST CREATED A CHARACTER A FEW MINUTES AGO AND I CANT CONNECT TO THE RAMPAGE
Only characters created before 10/02/21 @ 9AM or so are present in the Rampage. Sorry.
MY PASSWORD WONT WORK
If you aren't able to connect, it may be that the rampage is over.
I'M STUCK OR HAVE ENCOUNTERED A BUG ON RAMPAGE
You can xhelp and if a staff member is around, they will help. We aren't staffing the rampage full time so you may not get a response.
If you encounter a bug, you do not need to report it. We are monitoring and will cherry pick the bugs we want to investigate based on if they are related to the new code / system.
