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.
Unfortunately, both people who offered to host a main server for Olvand, haven't responded yet. However, because I think it would really help the alpha testing if somebody would host a server that's always online, I still want to see if I can find somebody.

Unfortunately, both people who offered to host a main server for Olvand, haven't responded yet. Maybe they're out of town, maybe they're busy with other stuff, maybe they don't want to do it anymore, I don't know.

What you do
Host a server that's always online, and is reachable by all other testers by typing 'testserver1' or something similar. All other testers know your server exists, and will probably use it if they're not playing with friends on a personal server. The first group of testers I'm going to invite consists of 35 people. I've read that about 40-60% of the invited people try it out, so there will about 17 people playing. My guess is that this translates to roughly 2-3 people online at the same time when it's evening in Europe or the States.
