L&D Current Status (post Funcom Live Services Patches) 2020JUL02

  • Has not been hit with any lost thralls or broken things. Crafting stations had to be reset to get them working.
  • FIXED By Funcom Currently the server is running well but experiencing many Ping/Lag Spikes. It is NOT the server. This is directly connected to post Funcom Live Services update/patches.
  • Tweaks by Funcom My ping is 80-120 Typically (was 20-80). I am in Tempe AZ (close suburb of Phoenix). In game is very smooth again.

Welcome to :: Lament and Desire [RP/ERP/PvE/Survival] 18+

Adults Only 18+. Discord not required. Pressing Accept in Game is Consent.

Our Discord: https://discord.gg/s9a8p2Q

This is a more realistic enhanced adventuring server. Meaning it is set up so that crafting is more realistic, the enemies hit harder and have a bit more health (Bosses/Mini are reduced by 50%), and a ‘AD&D-esk’ Role Player’s Dreamland. We have awesome appropriate music, drinking, dancing, food, ■■■, and a wonderful environment to play in. The intent is to make us all feel like we are actually living here. You will end up LOVING this style of play. It is fun and rewarding and shall I say addictive and immersive?

PvE Role Playing Adventure Server

Fully Working In Game Economy of Traders to Barter your harvested and crafted standard resources!

Level 300 Balanced! Still maintains builds and additional Feats at 60 and beyond.

Purges are Off.

Again, this is an ADULT 18+ server that mandates RP (Role Play) and encourages ERP (■■■■■■ Role Play), Nudity, Slavery, Brutality (not severe or crazy kinks), Drugs, among other things that fit very well within the stories of Hyboria/Thurian/Conan fantasy.

This Modlist has been very carefully chosen so as to minimize breaking things during Funcom Updates and Mod Updates. This last Funcom update was rough on many mods but very few issues were had with any of the above mods. Basically all the mods above don’t really mess too much with the base game which makes them a lot safer to use.

L&D FAQ:

  • So what does Realisitc Play actually mean? See below for explanation of things but in essence the play has been set up to be very rewarding and fun. One should not be able to build an entire base of 3k or 4k parts in a weekend. Once the base is built then there is the ‘Little to Do Syndrome’. Things should take time and require some planning. You are investing time into your play. Why not have some mini-games and strategy to nullify a lot of boredom that can and will happen in this (or any) game. I will say that set up like this is a REALLY fun way to play.

  • Up to Level 35-45 is really harsh…it is a survival experience.

  • Crafting XP is very low. XP is gained from Adventuring, Exploring, and Slaying.

  • /kit from time to time as there are some that are level dependent

  • Remember the Dying and Death rules. Your gear will take damage and you will gain corruption. Your gear will drop in a X bag on the ground. You will need to get back to it to get your things.

  • Land Claim & Respawns :: Land Claim is really low (0.2). Meaning that building next to a resource the resource will likely not disappear. The respawn timer for both resources and NPCs is decently long. NPCs is set to 10.0 (Max) respawn time so not having to fight enemies coming back out of a dungeon/place. Hunting is better this way as well. That is the intent behind this.

  • Harvesting :: The amount multiplier is set to 1.9 so that gathering things that are just 1…like eggs…heads of animals…many things that only should have 1. If setting to 2.0+ there are simply too many things. Harvesting could be a little bit higher…no disagreement…but Funcom did not separate resources.

  • Bark really sucks. It is the default Funcom distribution (same 1.9). You must use a Pick (or Pick Axe) to harvest…best source for Bark is the white dry trees and logs in the desert. The carpenter bench has two recipes…Mulch (early) and Shaved Bark (later) that will help with Bark.

  • There is no interest in making this server easier for the ‘Hang Out and Gain XP’ crowd. This is a survival game and this is a server that is both Hard Core Roleplay but also Hard Core Adventuring. Not meant to be easy.

Server is still running. I updated the 1st posting to describe what is going on in game.

As of 2020JUL02

  • Server is once again running very smooth
  • Pings are still higher than they used to be but does not seem to be interfering with game play
  • Climbing is once again safe (ie…few mysterious drop with no grab). It does happen but nothing out of the norm for this game.

I updated the header post to describe this.

Hiya! Is this server still active? I just joined today and I’m hoping there are other players. Also, I’m not at all familiar with the stats that I get by pressing Shift r. Could you help a girl out and give me a few hints about how I should spend my points?
Thanks

hi! do you still play on this server? I’m looking for a company to play it…

@Velara and @Elromen Pop on the server is 3 of us but mainly just me at the moment. Now that the server is back to running smoothly my play time is ramping back to 5+ days a week (I Admin daily duties). I usually play 4pm to 9pm Arizona (-7 UTC) time and extended weekend. Love to visit and RP with others…bring food, drink, drugs…etc :rofl: :rofl:

It will take awhile to level up and mostly the game is solo until level 40±ish. You can make survival easier by using the RP Hub Towns since they have apartments you can use. Let me know if you want to use one and I can help set it up (L&D Clan Owner).

Server is located under Roleplay dropdown. Can type Lament and it will show.

To join the server just log in and Accept the Consent Pop-Up and then once you get to the river (don’t hang out long in the desert! :smiley:) SHIFT+R and set up your RP Character Sheet and Consent Form…basically refers to the Discord rules. Discord you should join since you can get help there fast and your in game character name should match.

And that is it. Have fun playing in a hard but really immersive and fun environment.
