Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kuza, past aliases include; Kasuagi, Jago, Muroshi and others. I'm not here to talk about myself though, I am here to tell you about my vision and playerworld. It has been my dream since I first played graal to manage and build my own playerworld, I couldn't do it until now. The only way I will ever accomplish this goal is with the help of others who share this vision. So with that said, here's the server in a nutshell;

Imagine waking up from your everyday dull life and finding yourself in a vast forest, surrounded by enchanted lands and areas for you to discover. On your way, you will encounter foes and friends, some will betray you and others will earn your trust. In this world, dragons fly through the sky, giants roam the lands and young adventurers as yourself encounter them, armed with your sword and shield, plus the occasional few items. Do you fight them head on or wait for your friends, so you can share the fun and spoils? Will your tactics include physical power or mentality and magic, just as you brace yourself for a good fight, a loud explosion reigns over the area. You and your friends turn to the direction of the sound and see a large line of men marching forward in royal armor, suited for a large scale battle. It's that kingdom you've heard rumours about, you hide in some bushes and watch as another military marshes froward, commanded by their general. It is now in your will to participate in the action, but you need to stop by the nearest town and pick up some supplies before you can fully implement your sneak attack and gather the dropped loot, it's not easy being a nomadic warrior. Making your way down a lonely trail, a group of goblins ambush you and your friends, you are in no condition to fight and seek shelter in a dark cavern, leading all the way into the ground. At the end of the maze, you find an underground lake and an island in the middle. There's a glow emitting from it, what could it be? These are the decisions you will have to make in the World of Rhune. Adventure is just around the corner.

There's plenty to do in Rhune. Just look at the map below, we've already began adding and editting levels. Sure, it's level generated, but it's ONLY an outline to go by. By combining RPG and action elements, players will be occupied for hours upon hours. Engaging in mini-games, side quests, player-held events, kingdom wars, questing, working and so much more. The players also affect the world around them, through roleplaying and ATE (active time events), many aspects of the server will change throughout the course of history, depending on the events that take place.

Kirbster... Malak, Escer and a few other people can make pretty good ganis as well. Almost everyone can do something besides one thing, so our staff is strong in a lot of different areas. So that means less communication and more work. ^^

- Too little of variety. Lots of the same tiles are used over and over.
- The bridge has potential, but some areas are just wierd. Such as the roof tiles. They just don't clash.
- The water needs more detail and less of the two tiles you used, it's way too cluttered.

I hope your village is a whole lot better. That level is kinda cluttered too. Thanks for pointing this out Spanky.

I would assume that the whole thing is an image. [notice how on one of the edges of the 'planks' it isn't a grass edge, which the tile is, it is a water edge.

Corupt: the level is decent barrels are overused yes unless there is story behind them and the bridge well if your gonna try to make it look like a log bridge (thats the theme i think your going for) make your own gfx becuase that had huge dips in it you wouldnt want someone to trip and break their neck would you? and for the stream.. uhh well i don't really see the point of having a bridge when the stream is.. ankle deep? i mean maybe some walking stones of a small pathway would look very cool take and use the house stone tiles make some gfx outta them and ut them in there or use castle top of the ladder tiles that might fit more maybe but anyways thats my 2 cents on that.. kasuagi good luck and thx for stealing my gani person :-p he was gonna help out alot and free me up of soem gani work cuz I could trust his work cuz its good but anyways oh and ill be showing the ice summon gani for BL soon so keep a look out on the BL thread and kas GL on the PW

Thanks a lot Corupt. I know Beyond Legend is going to be ownage to the max. Hehe, without Guy we'd be doomed. He's our best GANI maker and is the best at what he does. Thanks for the compliments and good luck in the future.

Love how when ever a level gets knocked down it instantly turns into a level made ages ago. As for a thieves hide out. If I where a thief (which I am when RPing) I wouldnt use that for a hide out with that bridge and all much to noticable and paths. A true thief wouldnt keep taking the same route over and over he switches up how he gets to his hide out. But then again its graal and tiles limit you so meh.

Thanks spanky that makes me feel loved <3
I wasnt going to waste my time posting anything but since I've been named.

Here is some levels I was originally making back in april or may. Never did finish them. ;) That's why there is no grass tiling on the outside level. Maybe I'll find a use for the levels and actually finish them.

draygin
07-19-2002, 10:04 PM
annnnnd the outside. This was all expiremental tiling I was trying out to find a good oriental style. Took me a while but I decided I liked the results. ;)

/addon I got these out of the levels forum since I'm not at home I cant post any thing else. That and when I'm home I just dont care enough about graal to come onto the graal boards.

You dont care but you're the idiot going on and on about how it matchs the background story of a drought. When lookign at the level it is clear there isnt a drought but poor tiling. If there was a drought the steam would be down showing part of the dried up stream bed trees dying turning brown etc...

Oh no! I found more errors on your level. :p

[1. there is a tile to fix that, right below the house tiles. it is dirt with a little dark speck to the upper right.]

[2. Can't fix this with a tile, I believe, but a nice small image will do it.]

Maybe you should vary the sand at the bottom near the beach a bit more. Also, some of the shadows are weird. They show up on one part, but not the same of the exact other on the dirt. if [you don't know what I mean, i'll upload a picture.]

[edit] actually, there might not be an error on the upper cliffs, but they just looked wrong to me.

Every other thing, but that "2" tile problem, I had fixed.
Here's an updated one.


edit. And, I'll vary the sand tiles later. I haven't bothered with that yet, because I've been working on the geography of the island.
