Hello folks. Unfortunately my current situation is pushing me away from developing such a great project as Ascalon. I decided for myself that I can't lead the development anymore. It's incredibly sad for me to write that topic, however I can't keep going into nowhere, it's time for me to get into something more stable. That's not a final decision yet, ascalon-world.com is still staying online and it will be online as long as it will be possible.
First time Ascalon was started in September 2010(it was known as EpicOT). It was a teleport server which wasnt successfull at all, as it was pretty much raw and unfinished. Later I decided to remake it into medium-exp custom RPG and I continued development. On April 8th 2012 Ascalon was started as RPG server(First season) and it looked promising, a lot of players liked it, however we barely had enough content to keep players interested for longer than few weeks. However server was staying online for 6~ months, with average 30-40 players online. During those months I was non-stop working on it and updating server weekly, however as I realized, it's not possible to cover all the needs of the players with only one developer. Such server requires a team which is surely bigger than just one person. After Ascalon went down, I lost my hope in it but I eventually came back to Ascalon in February 2013(so actually there was a pause since 18 September 2012 till that). I tried to sum up all the cons server had at its first launch, and did a massive rework on nearly all basic systems and somewhere in the end of May second season of Ascalon was started. Start was impressive, we had over 100 players online for first month and I was sure it's time for success, however server started to slowly losing the players, day by day, and now, its been in pretty much bad situation, it surely needs some kind of 'fresh blood' and I can't handle this myself.


If you never heard about this server, you may visit this thread: Ascalon, aswell as feel free to search 'Ascalon' over the otland, there are plenty of threads with screenshots and discussions.

So, right now I'm thinking about selling away Ascalon fully or partially(means that I will still stay in team, but not as a team leader, just as a coder). I have no real price set for such an offer, as I doubt any money will cover amount of work put to this server, however I will update this thread with more recent offers(if there will be any).

What comes in offer:
  • As server is based on private svn, only premium members can buy full source code of ascalon, else you will receive only code difference(over 500 commits during last season in sources, and bigger amount during previous development(unfortunately I lost my old repository, and had to change into new one, which already contains over 1000 commits within may 2012). There are many of unique features done in sources, you may check ascalon server to see all of it.
  • 8.6 client with imported custom sprites which are used on Ascalon, aswell as there are still dozens of sprites not used anywhere.
  • otclient for ascalon(pretty much not finished, not much was done there, however it has some custom styles, mana bar, some minor tweaks around the client and autoupdater)
  • tools(item, dat, map editors working for ascalon, so you will have all needed resourses to keep editing server)
  • awesome webpage which you can see here, you can see all the functionality and style there, aswell as it has item search admin panel, aswell as web interface to check players ips.
  • More about server: server got own, custom made map with 22 mb size(I really feel sorry for those guys who used to help me with mapping, especially Ghostx, as he is the last mapper involved to the server. Sorry for letting you down :( ).

Only if you going to keep it online and develop further, while I will still stay involved, haha. But honestly, you're offending me with such offer =.=

Oh, I was going to send you a PM with your old thread bbcode. Seems like you already recovered it and revised the grey area.

Best of luck!

I already stated that I neither plan to host it nor that I want to use it in any other way. I just want an extra copy.
You offend me by not reading what I told you earlier.
