    Throwing this out to see how big of an interest we may have here.

    I can buy a dedicated game server for us to play with, with, of course, a GA clan for them. Anyway, I want to know the answers to the following:

    1. Who would be interested in playing daily?

    2. With a baby at home I can not be the admin of the box just the investor. So I would need someone who is both knowledgable in games, Linux configurations, and how to be a good public relations person since this box WOULD be open to public (although we can stage workouts, competitions, and in-clan wars -- all closed to public of course.

    3. What games would be the most popular. Since I can only afford one box, we can only play one game at a time. As soon as the interest declines, we can change the games.

    I am not thinking of action games like BF1942 and CS. There's enough servers out there to curb anyone's appetite. I am gearing more towards RPG types. Something like Never Winter Nights.

    Anyway, just throwing this out. If we have less than 5 people interested it's a no go. I am sure not many of you would like to dedicate money and effort just for the box to sit around. :)

    Im obviously in.

    I think NWN would be a great choice, as there are SO many modules out there, and many persistent worlds for a nice clan group to smash through. NWN also offers great linux server support and remote server management tools so that any of us could get in and manipulate the game, server, etc.

    Im willing to put some cash into this.

    I don't own NWN myself, although I'll probably get it eventually. Not sure when. However I'm willing to donate my time to do the admin stuffs.

    I've not played an RPG in years but after reading a bit from this link you can count me in.

    Will pick up and install the game this weekend.

    Do I only need the game or do I need any/all expansion packs as well?

    Just the game for now but if the interest remains we can definitely start including the expansion.

    Will post back after installing and poking around the software.

    I will be able to click *Exit Game* right?

    This game isn't online crack is it?

    I only ask because somebody once told me I had addictive tendencies when I wouldn't come out of the casino for 40 hours straight *shrug*

    Well, let's put it this way, even if you find yourself on game crack, it ain't gonna cost you as much as the casino. ;)

    I'm totally in for a GA clan!

    Games I play that are clan capable:
    Wolfenstein Enemy Territory (and it's FREE!)
    Age of Kings/Empires/Mythology

    Well, that's what I can think of off the top of my head anyway... I'm down with some Counter Strike, etc.

    I'll be in school AND Have a 3-year-old to handle, so it's kinda tough to admin, but I know Linux relatively well and can be Cosysop.

    You are so generous ethics.

    How come none of the girls are interested in these games? Ya know why................cause outdoor sports and these pc games are hunting. You guys are hunting. Hunting and chasing. Its genetic hangover from the cave days. :thumbsup:

    Hey Mel, I know plenty of girls who play computer games. You should really try one out, you having all that time in jail and all....

    Dom: COsysop - I don't want to have a WHOLE server hanging over my head....
    Anyone else run a game server before?
  16. Frodo Lives

    Frodo Lives Luke, I am NOT your father!

    Oh yeah, what hipifreq said. The Return to Wolfenstein expansion Enemy Territory. As hipifreq said, it's free and you don't need the original to play.

    You just answered your own question and explained the entire concept in one fell swoop!
