…is what some dick demanded of me while I was trying to wrangle a bunch of screwball players who refused to work together and ran ahead clearing out the levels before anyone else could find the library despite the multiple obvious hints such as huge glowing signs marked READ ME that would have told them what to do.
Online NWN players are ignorant, inconsiderate bastards looking for l3wt and 3xp. I’ve finished Penultima #2, but I can’t playtest it because I can’t find a group of GOOD players who will work together and really PLAY THE GAME. Which makes no sense considering the amount of bitching I was hearing in the Roleplay room about “nobody really roleplaying anymore” and “wanting a good game to play”. Where were those guys when I asked them to test out my roleplay-heavy, quest-based module? Sitting around complaining rather than PLAYING what was offfered. Arggghh. If there’s a delay in release, blame them. Blame all of them. *sulk*
So, I’m putting out a call. I have Wednesday night free. I want this thing tested, dammit. Who wants to play? I can have the server online around 8pm eastern time, and I’ll post the address here in my journal comments once I put it up (along with the password). Anybody interested, or should I not waste my time?
I’m also uploading the file for folks who want to test the beta version single player (or with groups of their own). You can get it here. Post comments here as well. This version is content complete — everything’s in that’s going in. All that’s left is bugfixing and balancing.
I cannot stress this enough — the module was designed for either solo or a group of people who *gasp* are actually going to be considerate and cooperative. Is that too much to ask for?
Ugh. QA sucks. If you need me, I’ll be in the shower.
