Ahh, okay! So they're still available to explore, but much of the risk/reward is past. But still, it may be a good thing to look at to prepare for another event. I'll plan on going exploring, then.

I'm still hoping to come dungeon-crawling with you guys, but if I don't get to, I just wanna say this sounds like a really cool thing you're doing!
Thanks man, I hope you can make it too. Should you not be able, it's definitely worth to see if you can find some loot people might have missed. There's also loot in item frames, which are sometimes pretty well hidden, so there's still a chance for some loot or even a lore item, perhaps less valuable, but lorified with an added description just the same!

I've put this at the end of my first dungeon and it's a lot of fun to read back, making me feel very humbled and grateful to the attendees, so I'll put signs up for y'all at the end of my final dungeon too :)

Okay, so, more newbie questions...

Is there any preparation we should be doing in or out of character?

Are the baddies we're facing like mobs we will have to fight with in-game weapons and armor, or more like DnD monsters that you'll narrate and we narrate our attempted actions? If it is DnD-style, I assume dice rolls will be involved, but how do we do that in-game? In that vein, are "levels" a thing, or are we just to use common sense?

Regarding the spoils of war, how are rewards determined? Do you award them to characters that have done especially well, do we as players discuss how to divide everything, or is it just finders-keepers free-for-all?

My hope is that my computer will cooperate with me, but there's a chance I may experience lag or even be disconnected. Will I still be able to come back if that happens? Similarly, I'm only using the default MC texture pack. Are Conquest or any of the other additions needed for this run?

Hey, gonna field this one, and what I'll put here is general HW event stuff unless there's something otherwise noted in the event post.

If your character knows they're going into a cave, dungeon, ect. then it's acceptable that they would have prepared things like rope, torches, and provisions for however long they thing they'll need.

Mobs do not spawn on the overworld, baddies will be emoted and generally have at least one inital placement marker (wool, someone in a skin for it, ect.) so it is like DnD style. To roll on the server, you use the command /roll d20. Levels are not a thing, we use freeform crp for interpersonal conflict, but in the case of events we generally have an action emote paired with a roll for the ease of the DMs.

Spoils, it's generally a finders keepers thing. However, many people forget that they're not the only ones playing and horde everything. It's mostly just a be considerate to the people you're playing with type thing.

If you disconnect, you can come back with an IC excuse and excuse yourself OOCly. If your internet is being especially spotty you can inform the DM at the top of the dungeon just in case you are booted because of internet problems.
Conquest is the server's offical unoffical texture pack, but it is not required. (Just everything looks a little better. :) )

I hope this helps and answers your questions, and good luck in the event! :D

Thank y'all very much! My move-in was moved to the 1st, so unless I have to babysit or some other obligation, I should be available. I'm looking forward to it, so fingers crossed!
