One doesn't have to create a special character, as you notice, just strip down and run around with fellow nudists when need strikes.

    My Crick characters are committed to other Kins, so if I could attract enough interest, maybe a chat channel and corresponding forum thread? Maybe?
    Yes I'm on Crickhollow, main server, If you have any getting near 60 I'd join your group and help out, A channel and forum thread works too.

    OK, two deaths into the troll-in-a-cage instance at Level 10 was just embarrassing. I have too many long inductions.

    I may try a different specialization, but I say this does not look good for a Rune Keeper, at least not with my poor sense of strategy.

    That instance is tough at L10. Especially with a class (at L10) that has no stealth, crowd control, AOE, heavy armor, or pets/soldiers.
    I bow to your perseverance.

    I have my level 50-something mini nekkid on Crick but have been spending most of the time on Anor. But- with that XP bonus on the legendary, it's either put that stone back in my pocket or just run some lower level deeds so maybe a few runs in Moria on Crick would be just the ticket Let me know if anything sounds like something we can tackle. (I think it is Sunberry that stripped on Crick but I have alt-amnesia at this point)

    You said it. RK's a really limited at level 10. Perseverance is one word.

    I technically have a RK on Crickhollow, but it's to play with my kid, and we haven't done much with it. Rumor has it the class gets more formidable later?

    Biggest downside of playing on Anor is missing my Burg in Moria. Truth.

    If you play on Anor and want to join up just look for Biggly or Ursanna.

    Gonna be fun to see what we can accomplish as nude-but-not-rude.
    Sounds fantastic. Just started a human Warden Ardentia on Anor and will be following your rules. I will add a few of my own:
    1. Quest weapons and shields only.
    2. No purchasing of consumables except for non-combat food.

    Yay! Another nekkid warrior! Generally speaking, we don't purchase much of anything but we do have crafters and share what we can make. If you choose not to use crafted weapons/shields/food it's all good but it is available within the kin. Let us know when you get to the Troll quest and how you do (see earlier "rite of passage" comments in this thread). I think a warden should have fun with that We also have a warden in the kin now and he is thinking of fighting with one hand tied behind his back (or something like that )

    So as you know I took down the troll quest at level 7 last night. I actually want to do this with all classes to see what the difficulty range is (I'm an engineer IRL so that's how I swing). Sorry for not thinking to invite anyone else along.

    Anyway, so far Warden is not really that much more difficult. I have to watch my health a bit more and use a bit more range gambits, but that's it. I think the real fun will be on champ, captain, and burg. Hunters also definitely become more "glass-cannony" which will force me to be more cautious as well.

    So far it is a blast. I can't wait to try GB as a group with you guys.

    I think one thing this experiment clearly shows is how major a factor your character level relative to the target is as to how well you do.

    I am a high elf warden, Gildaran, recently started the naked adventuring of Middle-Earth. I would be interested in joining fellow nakers to do stuff together. However, I never encountered any caged trolls and have now achieved lvl 20. Additionally I am stationed in Europe, but I hope we could get something happening, if people are still interested!

    Yes yes yes! Welcome!

    I'll put you on my friend list. I am Ardith (Captain) and Nallamatani (Runekeeper), and I'm on a lot. If you see me, message for an invite.

    Timing for grouping will be challenging, but we're enthusiastic, and there are weekends.

    I had to ask how to find the troll-in-a-cage quest. It's out of Needlehole, at the end of a quest chain that starts with looking for a missing cow. No problem that you didn't find it. We've talked about setting some other "official" rites of passage.

    *waves* Crickhollow denizen here who is interested! Just stumbled on this thread via your sig link, would not have found it otherwise as I don't play on LS. Just finished reading through the whole thing, what a fun idea. I've done something similar in the past just individually, either restricting myself to quest rewards or dropped gear, or equipping waaay underlevel basic gear to make the game "hard" again.

    Would happily join this fine nekkid initiative for challenge and nostalgia of the good old days when landscape content took grit and guts. I can offer you my services in several stripped-down guises of alts scattered across a broad level range (mostly midlevel range, my xp-disabled main is 89 after 6 years).

    Willing to bet there's more Crickhollowers who would be interested but simply don't know about it. Server activity is a bit down since Yule but folks show up regularly to weekly concerts and I've been pleasantly surprised at how many other exp-disabled mid-level alts I've been coming across in landscape adventures.

    Let's get it on!

    Fantastic!

    I was kind of hoping maybe my sig would help with recruitement!

    I would love to get something rolling on Crick. My highest-level char is a lvl 53 Hobbit Burg in Moria. I also have a 40-something Woman Hunter just entering Angmar, a 30something Elf LM in Evendim, and a lvl 17 Beorning doing whatever it is that you do that early (just got to Bree I think)

    We could create a thread on the Crickhollow subforum if you think enough people read that for it to grab some attention. I can't really tell with the server-specific forums. I agree that activity has been fine when I've been there in spite of the bleed onto the legendary servers. I ran into another player in Sarnur last night and fought with them for almost an hour.

    I was thinking of creating a public chat channel #nudist on Crick for naked adventuring hookups . If we have enough interest, I would be up for creating a Victory's Secret kin on Crick.

    I know Reaboj has characters across the range of advancement on Crick and has talked about meeting up. Possibly Boraxxe too.

    Nibble (Warden) and I (Captain) plowed through The Red Pass on fellowship, just the two of us and slightly under-level.

    I managed to solo the Red Pass (Fellowship) last night on shivering at level 31. The mobs are kite-able and Radagast heals you, so whenever I was low I just ran around in circles and got healed. The hardest part was in the middle when you have to kill the named mob without Radagast. He is a signature with 2 elites guarding him, but you can kill him fast and then die and you respawn inside the instance. No need to kill the elites.

    Burglar Biggly, reporting in as requested....

    .


    I have progressed halfway through L31.
    Forbearance is begged for the delay in reporting.
    I have been busy organizing our kin, Victory's Secret.
    And, I am proud to report that after achieving Lifespan rank 7, we are about as organized and focused and productive as the US Congress.

    We do have a kinhouse.
    It has a tree.
    Oh, and some other stuff.

    We have been a bit inactive lately. I think mostly because we have all been soloing the heck out of the late L20s and early L30s with various alts, trying to find the "one" that works for us as Naked Adventurers. There is so much to learn.
    The big lesson in this experiment is that our preconceived notions about how to play various classes do not necessarily pan out.

    We have been looking for that ultimate challenging quest that needs a full group to succeed.

    The action is about to pick up.

    Boraxxe reporting....duty schmooty

    Biggly asked me to leave a message.


    He's "busy" doin' stuff at the kin house. With nails and bricks...waste of time if you ask me.

    This kin thing he has goin' is OK I guess. But runnin' around trying to fend off those da.. well those danged orcs and wolves and ogres and...well it's too late for that.

    We gotta go after the big cheese.
    Gotta take the fight to that shadowy spook Sauron!
    Yeah. There I said it!
    Sauron.

    I won't cringe at that name.

    Biggly did have one great idea.
    Removin' all that creaky, heavy, slow-ya-down armour. Now, that was one brilliant idea!

    I haven't felt so free in years.

    Look out Sauron.

    We are coming for YOU.

    Awesome! Welcome!

    Join us on Shivtr and Discord. Info in the MOTD.

    Depending on how fast you level, we have a group in the late-teens, early-20s that hopes to group up for Weathertop soon. I've been trying to get to that quest, but the downtime put a crimp in my style.

    Not clear what you mean by that. I have been regularly questing (on my burg) orange and yellow mobs/ quests lately including some intended for small fellowships (although 2 man is better for those.) We are, most of us, trying Drukarh (Meluinen Uruk for book) without using inspiration either solo or in a small group while the quest is at or above level. I soloed the Iron Crown Captain in Frith-vaile in Angmar which is a level 42 small fellowship at level 39. Even red mobs are killable but they take forever since you miss an awful lot Mostly depends on your class whether you need to stay on level with the mobs or you can seek out the higher levels. It's fun to push the limits

    You doing that with your naked char? Not bad.

    I have done some punching up with my Captain, but I'm pretty happy at white and yellow when naked. It feels like the perfect game balance to me.

    But woo, that downtime really broke my stride. Got on today for the first time all week.
