Olvand is a little multiplayer sandbox RPG, where the players live in self-built towns and can go on all kinds of adventures together. Imagine living with your friends in a small town in the mountains, or creating a new group of friends in a pub in the metropole you all live in. There will be several mini-games the inhabitants of a server can play together, among which will be combat based games like King of the Hill or Capture the Flag. You will be able to play against other people in your city, or as a city against another city, or as a whole server against another server. The combat works with self-built guns, in which all kinds of powers can be combined to create unique effects.
Now that I am so close to inviting the first playtesters, I've been busy adding handy tools to both the server and the client. Here's some of the things I added.

Hi all! As I write this, I'm incredibly close to inviting the first group of testers. Or the first half, to be precise, because I've decided to split the group into two to make sure the servers won't break because 35 people try to log in at the same time - the second half will be invited a day later. Anyway, I've got two working servers up at the moment ('Testserver1' and 'Testserver2'), and a third one that will jump in when needed ('Testserver4'). I'm doing some last preparations at the moment, and then it will begin! Exciting times!
For those of you grumbling about the fact that 'soon' still isn't 'now', I'm happy to say that I've been quite busy adding handy tools to both the server and the client - so you know I'm not wasting time. Some examples of new features included in the last patch:
People who beat me
Finally, because from next post on there will be people playing the game, I'm going to start a recurring section called 'People who beat me', where I'll list the names of -you guessed it- people who beat me in a duel since the last post. Throughout the week I'll visit some random servers, and you are free to challenge me if you want your name on the list. But be warned - I know how to build a good gun quickly ;).
