    Original post:

    Hi fellow f2p embraces,
    So after trying in vain to find game groups I thought I'd put shout out fellow toggers to see if there is any interest in getting a weekly play group together for DDO.
    I'm thinking mid week on a Tuesday or Wednesday around 8pm (AEST) for 2 or 3 hours.
    Servers would be either cannith or khyber depending on the group.
    Expressions of interest welcome.
    Cheers

    I'm interested if you're prepared to start pretty much from scratch?
    I rolled a toon on Khyber a few years back (just before FFP came in) but only put a couple of levels on him before giving it away. I'd be willing to roll whatever class, though I don't have much D&D experience. Also, I generally wouldn't be available until around 8.30-9pm.
    Let me know if you're interested, I'm keen to give it a go.

    Ok might try setting this up for next week.
    Tuesday 28th at 9:30pm AEST sound good?
    If we try and get at least one character to level 4 after Korthos island might be best.
    If you want to bring someone higher that will be fine as well.

    Any issue post back in here.

    That's assuming of course we all aren't playing guild wars 2.
    I'm more than open to other night's if anyone has other preferences.

    Tuesday nights are good for me (& I'm not playing GW2) but I wouldn't mind starting a little earlier. I don't think I'd be ready to go next week though, I've only just re-installed the client & need to work out how to play again!
    Also, I think we should work out what classes we'll play so that we can have a reasonably balanced group.

    I've a few fully geared up toons on Cannith. Haven't been in game since right before the last update. Waiting for them to patch everything they broke again.

    Can we post what server we would prefer.
    I have no preference as I have various toons on both servers, Thymos has a few on Cannith.
    Misterbear and Damo, do you have a preference?
    And does anyone have a problem with an 8:30pm start?

    I'd prefer Khyber, purely as it appears to be the most popular Oceanic server (both within TOG & generally). I think that would give us the best chance of picking up the odd player along the way.
    8.30pm start sounds good to me, I should just be able to make it (my kids go to bed around 8pm ;))

    I suggest that this coming Tuesday (or whatever day we decide to run on) we get together on Vent or TS & have a bit of a chat to finalise servers, toons, etc with a view to kicking off the group in the first week of September. What do you think?

    No preference. I only played for a short while, then we bought a new house and I've been busy doing the reno thing.

    So it sounds like Khyber might be the go for the server. Unfortunately, I've just been rostered for work on Tuesday night for the next 2 weeks.
    If no one objects do we want to try this Wednesday 29th at 8:30pm or postpone until the following week.

    Thoughts?

    Any night is good for me, as long as I have about a weeks notice.

    Wednesday 29th at 8:30pm is good for me.

    I can't make promises, but I am willing to roll up a brand new character on a server that I have yet to be established with. Perhaps we should set some rules to make it more D&D and not just use the game to twink out characters. Play with what you have/earn.

    8.30pm this Wednesday should be ok for me. Are we going to roll from scratch & begin together on the starter island?

    Thymos, aren't you in the US? You realise we're talking Aust east coast time here which would be a very early start in the US.

    We'll either roll from scratch or from immediately after arriving in stormreach after korthos.

    I'm on call tonight now so I still intend on being in game, however if I'm not or I have to leave early thats why.

    We'll meet up in TeamSpeak in the DDO channel in the MMORPG Div.

    Sorry guys, can't make it tonight. Wife is away on business & I'm tied up with kids & work. Just drop me a line to indicate where you get up to tonight & I'll catch up for next week.

    Had a great time last week & look forward to catching up again. We've only just started so come on in if you're looking for something a bit different once a week.
