GygesGM should be posting on this on the Arindal forums, but here it is here too:Quish wrote:The "official" line is that those Arindalites who are interested were to contact Eldon, and he'd manually set up their accounts.
Arindal players wishing to play Clan Lord should first contact GygesGM. He'll validate you and ask a few questions. Arindal players are asked to go to the Clan Lord Account Portal and create an account but to not buy anything. Tell GygesGM what this account name is. [We're doing it this to avoid any naming conflicts between Arindal and CL. Also, it's good to get everyone familiar with the Account Portal.] GygesGM is compiling a list of all players, these account names, and which characters are migrating over, and sending it to me. I'll manually activate the accounts. [I tried using coupons for this, but there's a very difficult bug that prevents a coupon taking an order down to $0. Yes, we could've just asked for them to pay $1, but we promised it would be free.]
Once activated, the players can log into CL normally and create characters normally [once again to prevent duplicate names and the like.] I'll manually touch these characters. Over the course of some number of weeks, we'll dole out ranks based up a percentage of the ranks they had in Arindal. We decided this would be best to allow everyone to adjust to the, uhm, unique CL trainers. [The ones CL players love to hate.] I would expect that the Arindal folks will get a memorial item as well.
I would very much like to have a storyline to welcome the new arrivals, but it will honesty have to wait until quite a few folks are already here since the account activations are being done manually. So, I would expect something modest and more RP-oriented than anything. If a player would like to take the lead on this, please contact me and GygesGM. I would expect him/her to be familiar with both Arindal and CL to be most effective.
Please note that these instructions may be changed as we progress. Hopefully, they would become simpler.
