We've started on a new server as of maybe half a week ago. It's entitled LuminaRO, and can be found here: http://lumina-ro.net/
Seeing as how I...usually have an ungodly amount of time on my hands, I decided that I'd probably want to create multiple characters. But in that case, I needed some kind of naming convention that would work out. Last time I just went with DDRKirby(ISQ) since I only had my Priest, but that obviously won't work here. When I first played RO I remember having goddess names of some sort, so my Swordsman was Morta (the roman goddess of death), for example.
Anyways, here's what I came up with:
Reinforce san - PriestVita chan - Monk
Teana san - Gunslinger
Miyuki san - Ninja
Signum - Knight
Caro chan - Wizard
Reinforce zwei - Soul linker
Subaru san - Taekwon
Fate sama - Wizard
It's an -awesome- naming convention. (Nanoha chars, if you couldn't tell)
Here's screencaps of how all of them look at the current moment.
Reinforce, lvl 92 support Priest. I really, really hate the priest outfit, so I'm hoping I can rebirth soon.
Vita chan, lvl 74 Monk. Some sort of combo monk just for pvm fun.
Teana san, lvl 74 gunslinger. I have no idea what to do with gunslinger builds; I'm going revolver now, maybe gatling???
Miyuki san, lvl 14 ninja. Miyuki is from Triangle Heart. She's probably gonna throw stuff...or something.
Signum, lvl 68 Knight. 2-hand sword.
Caro chan, lvl 12 Magician.
Reinforce zwei, lvl 12 Taekwon. Going to become a soul linker (it fits so well!)
Subaru san, lvl 14 Taekwon. For taekwon master.
And of course, Fate sama, lvl 79 Wizard. She likes using Lord of Vermillion (see below). =P
As you can see, I've "only" actually played 5 of the chars...not sure if that number will stay constant as time goes on.
Leveling hasn't been bad at all...it definitely helps that LuminaRO is having special 75/75/25 rates (as opposed to the normal 50/50/25) to celebrate breaking 500 members online at once.
The people are easier to interact with than on osRO...or maybe that's just my imagination. I did run into a knight (i think) when I was out in Moscovia Dungeon farming Sharp Leaves with Vita chan (monk). Sharp leaves are really good because the Les monster that drops it isn't particularly difficult, and you can turn in 50 of them to a quest NPC and get from lvl 60 to 70 in a snap. Anyways I ran into this guy and we partied for a little bit (we both had to run off after a bit though). He even friended me!
Patacroute : Akyko
Patacroute : I'm
Patacroute : : P
Vita chan : ?
You have become friends with (Patacroute).
Patacroute : That's the name of my sniper
Vita chan : oh
Patacroute : See you Woe : P
...Though, the friend list/party system is extremely awkward for me because I have 9 different characters, and it's managed independently for all of them. @autoloot and @showexp login settings are independent as well...at some point I need to enable them for all 9 of my chars. And don't even get me started on trying to handle inventory. Gah.
Ok, more pictures of random stuff happening, and associated stories.
Well, I was in Gaia (the new special main town of LuminaRO) and I run into this character who...well, looks like fate. And sure enough, her name's "Fate T Harlaown"! So I run up and friend request her.
...of course, I was competely mistaken and this just turned out to be some random person who also happens to like Fate xD. (Natalie later pointed out that I should have remembered that she plays male characters...)
I wanted to friend request them with all 9 of my Nanoha-themed characters (they would probably get a good kick out of that), but after some quick testing, I determined that only the latest friend request stays; so you can't spam someone with multiple requests. oh well. Also yes, at the time of this screenshot I had 128 green herbs xD.
--Sunday, 4/11/10-- (actually Saturday night)
I managed to find one skeleton worker card, so I'll have to hand that off to Taro to sell eventually.
We ended up getting really good exp though...at the end I was level 92, so well on my way to transcending. I felt a little bad because I didn't really know what I was doing party-wise at first, but I got the hang of things soon enough. Our archer ended up running out of arrows and by this time it was something like 5:30AM so me and Natalie decided to call it quits xD. They thanked us for our help though; which was nice. And I got friend requested, yay.
All in all not a bad start to newfound adventures on this server. Hooray!~
Look forward to some more posts; especially when I end up getting to rebirth Reinforce and she becomes an oh-so-pretty high aco =D I'm actually not quite sure whether I'll stick with the white hair. I know, I know, Reinforce is supposed to have white hair..but I really, REALLY liked the red hair on my high priest that I had last time. We'll see...
