ROT 3 Development News & Status

Post#1 » Sat Jan 11, 2014 4:37 pm

We are heavily working on bringing ROT3 to life. As you all know, the Cormyrean Expanse (Low Magic Campaign) has been removed from ROT. We have adjusted the story a little bit at the end of ROT2 Chapter 11, and you will see how well it fits our plans to roll into ROT 3.

ROT 3's title is "Volume 3 - The Cormyrean Expanse" and will have 20 chapters in all and be broken up into 2 volumes.


ROT 3 will be basically the CEXP campaign, but adjusted for High Level and High Magic. We are making some changes here and there as necessary, but that is the basic idea of how we are proceeding. Below is the list of tasks at hand and statuses:

- Decommission CEXP characters and credit accounts. - Done
- Remove CEXP stores and branches from server. - Done
- Removing CEXP spell reversions. - Done
- Creation of a whole new script system for dynamic mob properties and customizations. - Done
- ROT 3 Chapter 1 - 4 development work. - Done
- Wiring up the random mob drop generation system to containers that have respawnable loot. - Done
- Side Quests, Cannibals and Druids refactor for High Magic. - Completed
- Beta testing. - Open Beta has begun on the LIVE server.
- Updating CEXP drops for released chapters to be level appropriate. - In Progress


Phase 2

- ROT 3 Chapter 5 - 9 development work - Complete
- Side Quest - Clash of Theives - Complete

EDIT: I mean I'll send them some time later today LOL.

We are near completion of ROT3 project work and will be posting news soon about beta testing and when it is scheduled to begin. I have some more mob work to do yet, and Madmage is updating the drops for Chapters 1-4 as well as those found in the 2 opening side quests. Everything else is done and alpha testing is underway.

That's actually going to be part of the ROT3 story, but chapter 19. It won't make sense until you are back in the present.

Phase 3

ROT3 Chapter 10 - Releases to open Beta on 4/27/2014.
ROT3 Chapter 11-13 - Releases to open Beta on 5/22/2014. Work in progress.

Note: For all of those who played the original CEXP campaign, the differences are going to become very apparent in the story in Chapter 12 on. Jard has been off doing his own thing since the beginning of ROT3, he will rejoin the party at that point. Also, if you remember, Jard knows what happened up to the point of CEXP Chapter 16. SO keep that in mind on what the remaining of this campaign will hold. Don't assume you KNOW what's going to happen if you've played CEXP. You are in the past to make a difference in the outcome of ROT2 Chapter 11.
