Once upon a time, not too long ago, there was a promised land of merriment and wonder called NOTD. It was a haven to brave men, women, and Froblocks who gathered to share stories of battle and to seek glory. Merriment and joy was abundant and the chalices of these brave warriors overflowed with mirth. As battles raged and years sailed by the faces of old were joined by flocks of scamps seeking the promised land and their place among the stars. Time passed and old names began to fade into memory as new confederates, who once stood at the heels of champions, carried the banner with honor and valor. Though these names may have passed from the minds and tongues of the young and ambitious that now hold sword and shield against malevolence, the memories and deeds of the old guard will never fade from their hearts. These vanguards of old have lain their mark on the promised land, each becoming a part of the tapestry of its history, and have shaped the land from virgin wilderness to a...

Recently we have added Commlink to the development team in preparation for NOTD 2. He'll be working with us to bring new custom models to the NOTD universe that will give the game a unique feeling.

Commlink has a history of working with SC2 mods in the past and his work on each project left it with something that people immediately identify the game with.

Everyone please welcome him and give feedback on any work he's posted here for you to review. Welcome to the team Commlink!

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to tell you that we've set up the NOTD Mumble server and you're all able to connect and chat on it now.

The NOTD Ventrilo server is now down and will no longer be used. Services were cancelled today and they should be closing the server down.

If you have ANY questions about Mumble or how we plan to operate our new voice chat program, feel free to ask!

You can also donate to NOTD here: http://www.notdstarcraft.com/donate.htm

All donations will be used to maintain our glorious machine that is NOTD and its assets.

You can find the NOTD Mumble server information in my signature below or right here!

Address: NOTD.Mumble.com
Port: 9107

We will convert to HOTS on 1 Jul 2013. Please let me know if any violent objections. AP will also do some research on the conversion process to ensure we don't face any unexpected surprises (e.g. triggers or abilities breaking, game crashing, units missing models).

Blizzard has also made it possible for people to play HOTS content as long as you party with someone with HOTS:
http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/10145834

Rationale for timing:
- 4 months since HOTS release. This gives enough buffer time for people to upgrade. There's no hard sales figures on HOTS, but my sense is at least 80% of StarCraft II players have upgraded
- With the new introduction of 'Spawning' by Blizzard, NOTD is technically accessible by everyone (just not in all conditions - without HOTS you can't join a pub NOTD game alone).
- There's useful content in HOTS (models, sound, abilities and terrain) that we can use. It's meaningful enough to give the developers more tools to polish...
