Xsyon Earth 2012: Prelude: Survivor Guy Part 2

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,596MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

MMORPG.com's resident Survivor Guy, Adam Tingle, is back at it again. This time, Adam has been spending some quality time with Xsyon. In today's second installment of Xsyon Survivor Guy, Adam gives his humorous take on meeting, discussing and plotting in Xsyon. Check out what Adam has faced in his continuing adventures in Xyson. Be sure to leave a comment or two when finished!

Torn, beaten, and broken I found myself wandering the coastline. Stopping occasionally to scoop water from the shore or to even daringly catch myself a meal, my mind was full of mistrust and tension. What if a gaggle of underpanted warriors came at me while I was subdued with angling activities? The only solution was to keep running, never to look back, to find someone, anything, for protection.

    Really enjoying these. Very cool tale!

    For my character, who had a very similar tale, this was the end of the story, though. There really wasn't much left to do other than build walls and tents. After a couple days in the tribe, I started seriously considering  quitting the tribe to put more adventure back into the game for myself, but i decided just to cancel the game altogether and move on to something else.

    Great story. Obvious though from your writing how empty things have gotten in the world of Xsyon. For better or worse though, you might've been hunted like a wild dog if the place was more populated.

    haha hilarious read, thanks for that.

    I just get the feeling like you arent even playing the game...  Maybe its the fact that you arent using screen-cap's you've taken yourself...

     

    Aside from that, it was a decent write-up.

    Excellent read, looking forward to the next chapter.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    It's been bugging me since I read the article so I have to ask... How and where did you get that badass armor?  I've had random articles of clothes, had seen the grass armor and heard of the bone armor but had never seen anything like what you are wearing there. What is it, and was that from the tribe you joined or did you manage to craft that yourself?

    The screenshots are from the Xsyon website.  I'm guessing he does'nt even know what armor sets those are.  If you are refering to the armor with the balistic looking helmet. Thats Rubicon, a levl 5 cloth armor set.  The Second page boasts from lvl 50 Grass armor called Daogwa.  Eitherway they may look nice, their protections arent that great though.

  • lethyslethys New York, NYPosts: 585Member

    The part where you talk about what outfits the fighters were wearing was amazing.  Kinda low pop game from what I can tell from your descriptions.

    Hmmm reading this makes me want to try the game. Are there ranged weapons in game?

    There are no ranged weapons in game yet,the technology has not been discovered yet. Now how we lost the technology to make a bow and arrows is beyond me. But there you have it.

    It seems like people have been playing it for ages, yet MMORPG.com lists this game's official release date as March 1st, 2011. Did they not reset the game world after open beta? Or did people already start to establish large villages within 6 weeks of release?

    Even better than usual Mr TIngle. :)
