Griselda, & KingOfPain
27/Oct/2007 - Woot! A new LoD team variant and full team in progress too. The Low Rent Legion is a team of low rent heroes (this team in hardcore), heroes who cannot afford to go to school and learn anything beyond the first grade. Keep up with the adventure HERE.
- This update brings you another tale based on Classic Diablo by Attika.
The Tale of Sir Cedrig can be found in our Tales
From Beyond section. Also from Attika, I have expanded
- This update brings you 2 team variants currently being played by
the RB crowd.
A new LoD variant by Zed-F wants you to just chillax and have some fun/challenges,
or not. Take a look at this latest variant - Slackers.
- First, a team variant fit for 1.10. The
Boot Camp Dropout, by Occhi, is a Druid trapped in Barbarian circumstances
- Played with the Barbarian class.
- This update brings you 2 variants and an Ironman article :)
08/July/2003 - Roede and Taoni Lay
Claim to Ironman Triple Crown! (April/8th/2003)
10/Feb/2003 - The farmers get their assets together (a bag of rice) and set out to hire some Samurai to defend them when the harvest, and hence bandits, arrives. If you are sick and tired working for peanuts, we... HAVE RICE. The Seven Samurai team varaint can also be played solo.
- Wondering what happened to Little-Mouse? The complete "Tale
of Lion-Mouse" has now been uploaded! Also, Attika's IronBard's
Tale has been added to the ironman
- Looking for something different? Take a look at Throwology
and be tempted to start a Double Thrower.
- Elric of Grans has added to his collection of Final Fantasy-inspired
variants with the Mystic Knight,
now hosted with the Lord of Destruction variants. Elric is also in the
process of designing more FF variants- collectively known as the Light
Warriors. Hail Elric! ;)
01/Oct/02 - Need some challenge? Welcome to the latest Classic Diablo variant, Beyond Naked Turtle Mage and Beyond Naked Witch, by KingOfPain. Find the info HERE.
- Added a whole bunch of articles including the D filez to the CD
strat section. Check it out.
18/Sept/02 - The Forge Ironman guide for Classic Diablo is now converted, and hosted at the RB. The DSG version can still be found at the DSG, alas, the formatting is all skewed after a few server moves. If you have not seen Charis' guide to Ironman melee vs Leo before, now is a good time to head over and read the newly included section in the Forge. Also hosted at the RB now, because of their relevance to the Forge, is Cy's Cave guide, Study of Firewall by myself, and Study of Charged Bolt by Moriah, Nystul and myself. Links to these can be found in the Classic Diablo, Ironman rules and the Forge section. Enjoy :)
22/June/02 - I just realized that the Classic Diablo section had no link to Lochnar[ITB]'s Freshman Diablo page, so I added one. The site has lots of basic information about Diablo, and also some articles of specfic interest to variant players.
10/June/02 - A new tale! The first sections of Taoni's "The Tale of Lion-Mouse" have been added to the tales section, and the final installment should be available soon!
04/May/02 - Clicking on the pentagram from one of the section index pages will now take you back to http://realmsbeyond.net
01/May/02 - Happy May Day! Enjoy, but make sure you don't get too wild, like these girls did. I added 2 solo rogue IM victory reports by Cyrene today: Cy_2K and The IM Game at the End of the Universe. The second one includes game seed info and has a Screenshots page. :)
28/Apr/02 - Continuing to update the Ironman section- added the Psycho team's Nightmare continuation to their victory report.
25/Apr/02 - The CD Ironman section has been expanded to include 6 victory reports (some were brought over from the DSG). This project has given me a chance to browse the backpages of the Forge Forum, too. Although current IM discussion takes place on the Realms Forum, the Forge Forum serves as a great IM archive. :)
Also finally got around to removing the extra margin space on the edge of the RBD pages. Meshuggah, I hope you're still around to enjoy it! ;)
06/Apr/02 - Kamwai's "An Amazon's Honor- Denari V'Imlatishan" has been added to the Tales section.
17/Mar/02 - The Classic Diablo Section is open! Hopefully this will make hosted CD info easier to find, and give us some motivation to continue adding CD content. Right now, we only have a few articles plus the hosted CD variants. Hopefully, we will add more shortly. If you find an old CD article that you think deserves a home, please submit it.
22/Feb/02 - Occhidiangela's "Friends of Sysiphus" is now in the Tales section.
16/Feb/02 - Added Drasca's LOD updates to the Forger.
14/Feb/02 - Another day, another story! Occhidiangela's tale has been updated to include Part VI. Way to go, Occhi!
10/Feb/02 - 3 new variants and a tale today! Occhidiangela's "Rabbit Cooking Barbarian of Harrogath" is now in the Tales section. The Goth (LOD), Ranger (D2), and Illusionist (D1) variants have also been added.
09/Feb/02 - Added Diakons, a Classic DIablo variant adapted to D2X by Skandranon.
05/Feb/02 - FoxBat's Diablo 2 Accelerator is now available for download. This utility lets you alter graphics and memory usage so that the game runs more smoothly. It works for Diablo 2 and Lord of Destruction 1.09, realm or open. Files for download can now be found in the Links section.
03/Feb/02 - New Variant! The Amazonian, a D2 and D2X variant by Charis, has been uploaded.
- Grand Re-Opening!
The updates today have laid a framework, ensuring that the current material is in working order, and providing a space for additional material as it comes in. So, you'll probably find small differences in just about every section, but few new articles at this point. For example, I was able to find a copy of Charis' Beta and Beyond report, and that is once again available in the Archive. Take a look! I was surprised to notice an early prototype of the Friendly Fire variant in that report, along with lots of other fun stuff.
We are pleased to host LemmingofGlory's Variant Archive here. This helpful tool contains the rules for over 300 Diablo and Diablo 2 Variants. It will be available for download both here and at the Sylvan Cliffs.
In the House of RBD, I have included information about RBD games on battle.net, PrinceOfOuch's Etiquette Guide, and a guide to our channel bots. I will add the RBD mules information once again as soon as I have a chance to go through and get the mules back up to active status.
The amount and extent of future updates is up to you, the members of the RBD community. Obviously, we have a lack of hosted variants and strategy written for Lord of Destruction, and the Beyond Classes section is currently empty. I will be accepting submissions for all sections of this site (for any version of Diablo), and I hope that the LOD section will soon feature some of the fantastic characters I've played with on battle.net recently. There is also plenty of room in the Archive to host interesting posts or threads from the Realms forum that are too good to be lost to the back pages. If you have a submission or a suggestion for the site, please email me.
