N-Pulse Rebirth

Hey Everyone! I have decided to announce the updated plans for N-Pulse Rebirth. First off, I know Rebirth has been a long time waiting for many of us; therefore, it has been decided to release Rebirth in selective segments. The first segment will be released soon hopefully if development continues as scheduled (*crosses fingers*). The first release will allow players to get a taste of Rebirth and help management determine whether the concept of Rebirth will be widely accepted or not. As some of you may or may not know, the concept of Rebirth is a server that will be appealing to both Classic and RPG players. Players will be able to choose whether or not to play Rebirth as a classic character, RPG character, or both. Below is a list of the plans for Rebirth. Please be aware that these plans may be tweaked and changed as we move forward with developing and releasing Rebirth. Player input will be greatly appreciated (and desired) while we start off the project.

Classic
There will be classic quests, events, spars, and specific classic PK levels for players to enjoy. Classic hearts, shield levels, and sword levels will be obtained by completing the classic quests on the server. These will not influence or interfere with the RPG aspect of your character and will allow classic N-Pulse players to continue to do what they originally enjoyed on this server.

RPG
Rebirth will also have RPG leveling, quests, spars, and will be the major type of PKing on the over world. We will also most likely have RPG events later on in the development of Rebirth. There will be no classes, stat system, or level cap. This will allow players to create their own unique character and not be put under restrictions as to what weapons, spells, or armor they can use. Players will be able to level by killing baddies or PKing other players. There will be a steep experience curve as a player levels, and each level earned will increase the damage done by their weapons; however, leveling will be limited to its overall effect on the player, as we want to encourage a server in which any player can log on and enjoy himself without hardcore grinding. HP and defense will not be affected by level. Armor is obtainable in complete sets and will give a slight boost to player defense. Players will also be able to use spells, with certain restrictions on what they may or may not use as weapons. Baddies will drop items and “Baddy Weapons” which logically fit in to who they are rather than just magically summoning gold upon their eminent death.

Jobs
Rebirth will feature a variety of jobs for players to obtain money. Each job will have its own mastery system for you to level. There will be a level cap for jobs. The higher a player’s level, the more money they will be able to make. As a player travels the over world, they will come upon other jobs that will provide a higher amount of profit. Therefore, it is in a player’s best interest to explore the over world rather than staying in one town the whole time.

Guild Houses/Player Houses
As we continue development on Rebirth we will allow guilds to purchase guild houses and players to purchase player houses. There will be a weekly rental fee to keep the guild house or player house on the server. If a player or guild fails to pay their rental fee, their house will be closed off and they will be given 2 weeks to re-claim their house before their location is put back on the market. Guild houses will cost more than player houses because it is expected that the members of the guild will pitch in and help pay the fee. The exact pricing and limitations on levels for guilds and player houses has not been determined yet.

Weather and Day/Night Systems

Rebirth will have Day/Night System which will go by “Rebirth time” and not real time. This system will influence when certain features will be available to the player. For example, if it is very late at night in Rebirth time, a shop may be closed and the player will have to wait till the morning comes to go inside and purchase items. This is just an example of what the system may influence. A weather system will also be implemented that will feature, wind, rain, tornadoes, and snow.

First Release
The first release of Rebirth will feature two towns, Tampus and Orleak. These towns are where players will begin their journey and will be limited to these towns only for Rebirth’s initial release. Tampus will feature two baddy dungeons for players to begin leveling in. Players will be able to obtain beginner weapons, armors, and spells. Tampus will essentially be a RPG Town, while Orleak will be a Classic Town. Within Orleak there will be one classic quest for players to complete for an extra heart. A fishing job will be available for players to obtain money and master in. Both towns will include their own spar house. Tampus will have a RPG spar; Orleak will be Classic sparring. The OnlineLevelEditor (OLE) building will be located in Tampus. A Guild Wars activity/event will also be released. Player Houses and Guilds Houses will not be accepted in the initial release. Last, the release will include the weather, as well as day/night systems.

N-Pulse’s management and development departments are hoping to release different parts of the over world one at a time when they are completed so players will be able to grow with the server and experience new features that will keep them entertained. However, the only problem is that N-Pulse needs more developers! We are currently limited to only a few developers and more would help the development go much faster. We need hard working developers from the areas of NAT, LAT, and Special Effects (gani, sound, and effect artists). We have enough GATs at the moment. I hope you all will enjoy the first release of Rebirth and the concept/idea that has been laid out for it.

Don't know why it turned out like this, possibly the day/night system, or my photo editor turned it black.

The outside screen shot was taken when it was becoming night in Rebirth so that is why the level looks a bit darker. Also, the added border line around the screen shot may make it look a bit darker than usual. The inside level is supposed to be dark but as Flamerus stated, not all of the levels will be dark so no worries

N-Pulse used to be a really fun Classic styled server around 2002 I think. A few remakes and spinoffs later, after the playercount died on it, another spinoff is incoming.
