Nice to meet you!


Pathfinder Online


Hi everyone.

Name is Sassaroth, you can call me Sass. (just some name I made up so the nickname would be cool..... and at time appropriate.)

I am new to the forum, but I am old to the game. I have been a fan of pathfinder since its infancy. I find it to be the superior gaming platform for my style. I have been playing table top gaming for a very long time, roughly 20 years. I have never got tired of it.

I am also a old salt of MMO gaming. So when I heard wind of PFO... I got goose bumps. I love that this is happening. My apologies for not getting to the kickstarter, OH I wish there was still a way to donate, because I would!

Is there?

Anyways, no I am not in alpha, but I can always dream. It is my desire to be part of the gaming process, even if I am unable to see it first hand. I have no doubt one day that will change.

Never the less! I will strive to be supportive in anyway that I can. If you find ways I can contribute I am more than happy to help. Just ask! I am not interested in playing early in the game just to play. I like to think the current testers are a good group of like minded people that help report, critique and develop the game as it is needed. I want this game to be great, and I want to be a small part that will help it be great.

I am currently in college for Media design with the emphasis for game development. I am pretty mean at Hammer level design LOL!. I am a single father of four wonderful children, war veteran, and all around nerd. I enjoy puns..... lots and lots of puns. I have more word play than a thesaurus.Thats enough about me. Glad to see you all.

I am here, my spells are memorized, my dagger is sharp. I wade into the fray unfettered without fear. Lets carve out a new game and make it one to rival the foundations of MMOs!

Hello Sassaroth, welcome to the forum!

Hi Sass!

Welcome! Come on in and get started learning the ropes. There may be someone with an alpha key left, so you should ask around. There are several threads.

As to "buying in", that can definately still be done here.

Hope to see you in game. Swing by Ozem's Vigil and we can get you outfitted in starter gear.

While the kickstarter is done, many of the add-ons can still be bought in the gw store, including some that provide very little but an acknowledgement of donation via an in-game name or title etc. You could theoretically buy a dozen noble titles and never reimburse them.

Hi everyone. Thank you guys!

I do not feel comfortable asking for keys. I find I would rather earn the honor.

Yet, you mentioned buying in, I do not consider it buying in to play, but donating to a good game idea. Honestly I would donate even if there was no reward. I truly like pathfinder. I will have to look at the shop when I get home. The school network is being a poo.

I really want to play and help develop my skills at looking for bugs, and technical game aspects. Might even get me some extra credit at school. I wonder, what type of clipping, are there solid objects, vectors, meshes, type of sprites. How is it rendered, do we use occulars, or distance, both? lights types for world, ambient and effects. world and ambient audio. Environmental hazard boxes and types.

Can't say I am super experienced, but I do have a good working knowledge so far. I created a few maps before, so this is all super interesting to me.

Anyways, I will defiantly swing by and get to know you all.

Well-Met Sass.

Welcome to the neighborhood.

Just a small word of warning, I heard someone complain on the chat, therefore I bring it up, the system is not very pathfinderish, it is actually IMO much better, but it distinctively lack several 3.5 iconic parts ... Just so you know what to expect.

There are lots of alpha keys, and any involvement in alpha is a good thing. Feel free to pm me and I can connect you with an alpha access if you like.

Indeed. If I had a key left, I would have offered it. We need more people in testing and trying stuff. I isn't a matter of earning it. You will earn it by working with a game in alpha state, believe me. ;)

you have a point. after typing being able to earn it, I thought. How would I do that out of game. Not easily, but still doable. I have had a few private offers I think I will take one up.

I am still going to shop at the store though. Making sure anything I buy at the store will not goof up an alpha key.

Since we're currently in the Alpha Stress Test, I believe all you have to do is purchase an EE (or even OE) account from the store. Once you do that you should get access to the stress test, since everyone with any account type currently has access.

Goblin Squad Member

Alpha keys are completely unrelated to game play later. They are nothing but temporary access to the game in its alpha state.


Been looking at land rush.

I find similarities to Conan Online MMO. I was in its beta stage as well. We found a bug that would let us raid and destroy guild halls within the first few hours of being able to build guild halls. we did some testing and found it repeatable.

...They changed that very quickly. Bug neutralized.

LOL

Right. I forgot that. Once you buy your enrollment package you'll be in anyway, regardless of whether you have an invite. At this point, the invite just lets you try it before you buy access


ah. I see well. I think I will buy it anyways. If I do get a spare key. I know of few people that might want to try it. I am part of a huge gaming community and a few MMO nerd on there like me would use it.

i jsut finished my purchase. If you have not sent my an alpha key, then please do not do so. Unless you wish me to pass one on. Please keep it for someone else.

Thank you all see you in game.

And have fun.

Welcome aboard and have fun!


thanks, installing now. Still can not see any of the alpha forums at GW. I might need a key for that. But I am hoping that fixes itself. Guess I will see soon.

Goblin Squad Member

Alpha forum is invited access only at the moment, but that should change soon. You can always use the invite I sent, even though you don't need it for game access, to get to the forums.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

just got in. Already submitted a few bugs. Good times. Well be back later tonight.

Welcome to the Community!

Take a look at my guide to help you get started, if you haven't already.

PFO Guide

Welcome Sass
I hope you will enjoy the game. It has a steep learning curve - but many helpful players who should guide you.
There are also many different settlements that you might consider. This is not a game for Solo play - it is best if you play in a community.
