    it is getting stale out there, how about having a dueling tournament, broken into levels (20s, 30s, 40s and so on) and having clan members donate prizes or just for the fun of seeing who can beat up whom :D

    or organizing a game where everyone starts from scratch, imports no equipment and only plays that character in the clan game (at least until finish norm or nm mode). if someone couldn't make that week's (or day's) game, they'd be allowed to take their character to the place everyone else left off.
    No skipping quests, rushing or loading up characters, play with what you find, cooperatively. Could be fun.

    In my personal opinion the duelling thing sounds boring, and we've done the second thing (didn't work very well). I'd be interesting in starting and leveliung with the clan (I didn't really play last time), but I have this feeling like it won't work since people come on at all different times and play solo and stuff...

    hehe, someone likes my idea :D ironman? is that a pvp thing or co-op? i'd assume co-op, esp with hardcore, since you only get one chance :D

    ironman is basically HARDCORE for hardcore. you start out with what you're wearing, leave town, and never go back.. until you're ready to go to the next act. you cant buy anything from the shops, you can only ID stuff with scrolls, you dont get quest bonuses from NPCs until the end of the act.. pretty damn hard. :D

    Ironman is hardcore where you dont ever go to town except for only (so you cant repair your equipment or buy pots). Meaning of course that you only use what you find.

    There used to be someone organizing it, but they would only go to lvl 12 or so and then try and kill each other.

    I think it would be fun if there was a couple of people. All this tweaking crap and everyone using uber items just takes all the challenge and fun out of it.

    But anyway, since switching to OS X, I cant play until its carbonized, as it runs like crap unless I switch to an obsolete OS and reboot.

    although that may be a little too hardcore, especially for a hardcore newbie like me. i mean, starting from scratch, with no imported items, gold, or outside help sounds hard enough :)

    Ironman would be interesting... Are you allowed to trade in it? I mean, I know you can only use what you find, but eventually if you find good trade material is it okay to trade it for stuff?

    Although I thought I could wait until its carbonized, if we organized something, I could go ahead and reboot into an obsolete OS.

    Im on West, but I can go East, just have to have someone help me so that I can create a hardcore char.

    Oh for God's sake you only will see OS 9 for the time it takes to launch D2. It can't be that bad, two years ago you would have said it's the best OS out there. Now, at worst it would be second best. Still worth using if you have to. I think you could stop whining long enough to play D2 if you really wanted to. :p

    Because it was. Now it isn't.

    Plus my install of os 9 has that weird problem where after it boots and changes from the extension loading screen to the desktop it hangs for about 5 minutes before it loads any icons on the desktop.
