  1. Introduction... again! :D

    Hello, and welcome to RGN...awkward pause
  2. October Recruitment and Promotions

    Congratulations everyone!
  3. Every rule listed below is subject to change upon community suggestion and guidance, if there is something that you do not like, feel free to speak your mind, and we will discuss it. Server Rules: 1. Have Fun! 2. Be Respectful! 3. No Griefing! (Examples Below) 4. No Killing Passive/Knocked Out! (Exceptions to this are if someone is taking cover behind them, or they are being used to store gear that was gained during the PvP combat.) 5. No holding grudges! If you are in a fight, fight it out, and end it. This is a PvP server and while PvP is fine, constantly arguing and fighting over chat is not going to get anyone anywhere. 6. No Offline Base Raiding! 7. No leveling of bases unless approved by an admin in certain circumstances. 8. No Killing players flagged as PvE! 9. No logging out after a raid has been initiated on you to try and make it an offline raid. (Initiated = Started. If they have already begun damaging your structures and dinosaurs then you are not to log out to try and avoid it, and if you do, you will have your ORP removed by an admin.) 10. If you are raiding another tribe, a surrender option must be offered where they are able to allow you access to their base, however you are not allowed to damage anything that they own at that point, and if you do, administrative action will be taken. A reply to the surrender must be given within 3 minutes of the surrender request, or a raid can commence. If either party betrays the agreement of a surrender and attacks the other, they will have their dinosaurs, and structures removed from the server. PvE Flagging Specifics: If you are wanting to play as a PvE tribe, then your tribe name must have PvE at the end of it. An example of this is Tribe Of The Watchers - PvE. If you perform any act of aggression while you are flagged as PvE, your player, dinosaurs and structures will be wiped, and you will start at square one. This rule is to protect players who don't want to be in PvP, not to provide an advantage for those who do. Examples of Griefing: Killing every last dinosaur that someone has after a successful raid. Leveling someones base after you have already gained access to their materials and resources and taken them. Killing the same person repeatedly after a PvP engagement and preventing them from rebuilding. If you have any questions, feel free to find myself or Touri in the discord or on Teamspeak!
  4. Hey Everyone! With the announcement of the first Reckless Saturday stream, I want to start getting the ball rolling for community ideas and feedback on what they would like to see out of the stream in the future. We're going to kick this off by having user submitted topics for the stream, as well as user submitted questions. We'll also look into allowing some community suggested giveaways where you pick the game(s) to be given away on the stream so that the giveaway's can stay fun and exciting for everyone! So, if you have a suggestion for a segment for the show this is going to be how you can submit it for official review! I would like all of the suggestions PM'd to me and they will be reviewed by leadership for consideration in being added to the stream. The suggestions must be submitted with the following template to be considered as valid attempts at segment suggestion: Segment Name: Approximate Segment Length: Why do you think this segment will benefit Reckless Saturday and the viewers?: How often would you like to see the segment?(Biweekly, Monthly, etc.): Just keeping it short and simple on this, as we have a general idea for a few segments and we don't want to lock the entire stream up with pre-determined topics of discussion as most of the fun comes from the free-form atmosphere we have going on. Also, we're going to be accepting questions for the stream ahead of time so that it's not so chaotic when questions are being presented. The stream will have a Q&A segment for addressing community-submitted questions and some questions from chat/live viewers as well. Feel free to submit your questions to me as well, just try to keep them concise, and not incredibly open ended, also if you have multiple, send them in one message. For now, we'll keep the giveaway suggestions to a minimum as I'm brainstorming ideas for maybe having a poll system set up for those long term with some flexibility on the games given away on each stream. Thank you again everyone I look forward to seeing you all on the upcoming streams! [RGN] Yami
  5. Reckless Saturday! Hello Everyone! I want to first start by thanking you for your continued, and unwavering support that we as a community have gotten from all of you. The purpose of this post is to address some questions, and provide some information regarding our beloved "Reckless Friday" streams. As most of you know, Reckless Friday just recently had a comeback stream and it was well received, and we all had a great time with it. We want to carry on this success and bring even more to the table in the future so we've made some changes as leadership to get this rolling. First and foremost, due to availability, scheduling, and attendance, Reckless Friday will now be known as Reckless Saturday! This change will allow us to bring to the table some individuals who have never been on the stream, and would have had some major scheduling issues if we continued on Friday. Leadership will be in greater attendance, and we'll be able to do a more consistent and healthy stream on Saturday. The next big change that I want to address is the time frame between streams; With these changes, we will have a set schedule of a bi-weekly stream on every other Saturday. This will allow us to keep the stream fresh, consistent, but also not run out of things to talk about or fall idle and feel like we're pushing streams without any real significant content to discuss because streams are too frequent. Finally, we're looking at adding some structure to the stream! We'll be streaming with 1 consistent host from RGN Leadership who will be present, barring any unforeseen or announced schedule conflicts. This will allow the stream to have one individual who is consistent and able to carry over discussion and topics more fluidly than if we changed out every individual each stream. Next, we are going to be dropping the stream from 6 individuals to 4, this is due to a host of logistical speed-bumps resulting in major difficulties with setting up the stream. We're also going to be looking to add some stable topics to the stream itself. We will be discussing game news, community changes, RGN sponsored events, and other topics that will encourage community involvement and input towards the content of the stream! This could include giveaways, gameplay footage, bringing back fails of the week, and other awesome multimedia content that can be created by the community, and commentated on by streamers. Our first stream will be on 09/09/2017 at 9:00PM EST! If you have any questions or concerns, you can leave feedback below for answers, or PM me and I will do my best to answer any questions that you have. Thank you again for your continued support and dedication, Your RGN Leadership TL;DR: RECKLESS SATURDAY 09/09/2017 9:00PM EST BE THERE OR BE SAD!
  6. Yea. you're definitely correct there. Time to do .25% gathering/taming/leveling experience!
  7. Hello everyone and welcome, Being that the server is starting to gain popularity, both within RGN and outside of RGN, I have begun to think quite a bit about some PvE/RP things that could be implemented! Now, the majority of these are rough around the edges and could definitely use some refinement and adjusting with the help of the Dark and Light community within RGN so I'm posting them publicly for criticism and feedback. PvE/RP Oriented Guilds/Groups inside of the game: Constables/Knights of the Realm: Defend NPC's/Players from Wildlife and Malicious intent from other players Wear heavy armor, and wield Lionguard shields and swords Uniform and code of conduct strictly enforced Potential Rank structure/Hierarchy Rangers/Striders: Potential scouting group for players Hire/Contract to find certain creatures for taming with level requirements Hire/Contract to locate bases of other players for intelligence gathering purposes. Huntsman: Fur and Hide trading Leather armor crafting and selling to new players Potentially roaming/traveling traders Farmers: Sales of crafting food, farming supplies and farmed items Stands located in cities with preset player prices for in game bartering/currency At the moment, those are just a few ideas I've come up with to maybe enhance the server slightly. If anyone has any questions/suggestions/feedback, please feel free to post it and we can iron out details and add to the list. @[email protected]@jamesshuler @Gewchie
  8. Worth buying?

    Damn, that's awesome! Haha. Nah, they didn't abandon Ark, I know I worded that strangely, Ark is being looked at to be launched into full release shortly and has had a great early access run of 2 years now, so they're finally rolling it out.
  9. Worth buying?

    I would absolutely say so. There is a few hundred hours worth of gameplay just to max out everything and view the amp and discover the game in it's current state. I'm 80 hours in and I'm still 7 levels off of max on my 3x server and still can't really fight/kill some of the stuff on the map and am afraid to as well. We haven't even gotten into the high tier tames yet and aren't really able to yet. It's got a lot going for it and there's only more to come, it's being run by the same company that ran Ark so I'm expecting frequent/consistent updates with a large developmental focus on community feedback.
  10. August | Recruitment and Promotions

    Welcome and congratulations, everyone!
  11. Light and dark

    I've been streaming it pretty regularly, I believe I've seen you in my stream as well, Mav. I will try to get a post up explaining the game/the purpose of it in a bit, working on getting the subforum together now.
  12. Server Rules:1. Have Fun! 2. Build anywhere you like, as long as it doesn't block resource spawns of rare materials. (Mithril, Darkstone.. etc.) 3. Be Respectful and Roleplay! This is an RP server and everyone should be interacting with each other within character inside of voice/local communication! Global chat is for OOC(Out of Character) or IC(In Character) announcements by individuals who are recruiting for events/their houses! 4. Please clean up after yourself! This means campfires, taming equipment, rogue foundations/sleeping bags, all of those items can generate a lot of memory drain on the server. If it becomes a chronic reported issue regarding a certain individual, they will be talked to about it. 5. No Griefing! (Examples Below)6. No Killing Passive/Knocked Out! (Exceptions to this are if someone is taking cover behind them, or they are being used to store gear that was gained during the PvP combat.)7. No holding grudges! If you are in a fight, fight it out, and end it. This is a PvP server and while PvP is fine, constantly arguing and fighting over chat is not going to get anyone anywhere.8. No Offline Base Raiding! 9. In the cases of raiding, create an entrance, access to resources, and that is it. Do not destroy excess walls/structures intentionally. 10. No Killing players flagged as PvE!11. No logging out after a raid has been initiated on you to try and make it an offline raid. (Initiated = If they have already announced the raid, or are damaging your structures and tames then you are not to log out to try and avoid it, and if you do, you will surrender your offline raid protection status for the length of the raid.)12. If you are raiding another house, a surrender option must be offered where they are able to allow you access to their base, however you are not allowed to damage anything that they own at that point, and if you do, administrative action will be taken. A reply to the surrender must be given within 3 minutes of the surrender request, or a raid can commence. If either party betrays the agreement of a surrender and attacks the other, they will have their creatures killed, and structures removed from the server.PvE Flagging Specifics: If you are wanting to play as a PvE tribe, then your tribe name must have PvE at the end of it. An example of this is House Of The Watchers - PvE. As long as you keep this PvE tag, you are protected from raiding by the rules, however, if you perform an act of aggression, you will lose your PvE status, and you cannot regain it. This means if you attack any other tribes, or their dinos, you will lose your PvE status for good. Secondly, if you are PvE and you attack someone or start a fight, you will be surrendering your resources/tames/buildings to the individual that you attacked at their mercy, with admin permission. Being PvE is not to be used to build resources and a base and then initiate raids once you are established. Property Disputes of building too close to one another are to be settled by the owners of the property, there is no rule against taking land in your name, as long as you can hold it. Examples of Griefing: Killing every last creature that someone has after a successful raid.Leveling someones base after you have already gained access to their materials and resources and taken them.Killing the same person repeatedly after a PvP engagement and preventing them from rebuilding. Leading wild mobs to players bases to break their property.
  13. completed FatVortex Ban appeal (TS)

    All right, listen. I just unbanned you. I was not wrong about the Sancho situation, any admin or knowledgeable person with Teamspeak would have had the same thought process. I'm not going to tell you how to rejoin a server you're banned from, because if you don't know, that's for the best. Your ban is lifted, but know that if you do anything like this again in the future, this will heavily influence ban length, and permanence. Thank you Yami
  14. completed FatVortex Ban appeal (TS)

    What I would like, is an explanation of why you then rejoined the channel, under the Alias "Sancho" and the proceeded to do the exact same thing that you were doing previously while under the name "Fat Vortex." I would appreciate it if you don't go the route of denial here, because it was verbatum, the exact statement that you were saying while you were under your main alias prior to being banned.
  15. Reckless WoW v2.0?

    I really would say that in my opinion, Blizzard should drop WoW and make a new MMO from the bottom up and release and just retire that tired engine and poorly textured dinosaur that is WoW. It'd be much more attractive to new and returning players.
