I officially got the One Life To Live project off the ground today. As you know, I was waiting for the two new races this week before delving in. The idea will be to get characters as far as I can without dying. I’ll do a different race each time, and try to do a different class each time as well, until both start repeating. With all the options available, it will literally be dozens of characters before I repeat a combination.
I stated last week I had put a great deal of thought into the project and that was true, but as one would expect a bit more thought went into things as well. For starters, I eliminated the Death Knight class. It seems cheating to be able to start at 55 when others would be at level 1. Also, I was going to RP the toons but I don’t see that fairing well. For starters, it will probably be hard enough for me to not get too connected with them, because any death is their end. To add an RP element and a further extension of myself would make that harder. I’d also spend more time trying to write about them than play them to be honest.
Having said all that, I’ve mapped out the first 12 characters (each race’s first go round). This was done as random as can be. Want proof? I’m currently leveling two low-level Warriors. I also like the Humans the least out of all the races. First combo? Yep. Human Warrior. Whee. I know you’re thinking I can just do something daft and get the toon offed and move on, but that would take the fun, and principle, out of the whole thing. So, no, we’ll have none of that.
So, I guess this is it. Launch time. Our first character is off and running and up to level 4. You can follow Golstaff either here when posts come about, or on the Galakrond(US) realm.
