Character Creator Hotfix 10-16-2013 by Jinker on 16 Oct 2013 : 11:32
There was an issue with the character creator where it was pointing to a dead IP but I was able to make a new one. The new one will be included in the full download after the next update. Until then you can download the new Character Creator here.



Replace the old Character Creator with the one you download, it needs to be in the same folder as the Oberin client.
Server Login! - Update 04-22-2013 by Jinker on 18 Apr 2013 : 12:35
Use ob.mine.nu in the server field to login to Oberin. It should be back to normal in a few days.



**Update**



If you are tired of typing in the server address you can download this new client. Just replace the Oberin file with the one in your Oberin Client folder.



December Update - 12-24-2012 by Jinker on 24 Dec 2012 : 07:20
Update is out and you should be able to update with the auto-updater. If not download the full version or PM Jinker for the manual patch files.

Changes and Additions

Changed success rate for wizards to encourage more group hunting.



Changed the way successes were calculated when fighting higher and lower level creatures. High level characters should gain more successes fighting creatures of lower levels. The idea that a higher level fighter can go on hunts with lower level characters and and still gain successes at a good rate. Still working on it, but this should broaden things out very much.



Added Negative Title Experience. Titles below Peasant.



Added visual effects to the stink curse.



Added additional visual effects on Disorient spell.



Added more items for GM use.



November Update 11-26-2012 by Jinker on 26 Nov 2012 : 05:38
Small update, mostly stuff for GM's. I did fix the one hit bug for rogues with low level melee. Widened an area in Crausaar's Descent so players won't get bumped out to different areas. The cave exit graphic has been updated to be easier to find when dead.









If the auto-updater fails you can do a manual patch with these files:



OSX(.zip) November patch

Classic(.sit) November patch



Or download the full versions, they are always up to date.
Oberin Update July 2012 by Jinker on 12 Jul 2012 : 04:31
New files will be in the download section. If you have the latest version of Oberin and only need the patch files click below for your system.



Patch for OSX (.zip)

Patch for Classic (OS9) (.sit)



Only a few things added for this update. The main reason for update is that the auto-updater should be working for future version and make patching much easier.



Shapeshift spell has been broken up into 3 spells for druids.

I have managed to reconstruct the 2005 RTQ News posts which vanished when the old website crashed. I am now in the process of uploading them to the Oberin website as time allows.



Visit the RTQ Archive category to check them out!I have managed to reconstruct the 2005 RTQ News posts which vanished when the old website crashed. I am now in the process of uploading them to the Oberin website as time allows. There are over 60 posts in the batch I have recovered.



The archive is a reconstruction of original RTQ reports submitted by players (as well as a few Qchar submissions) in 2005. The formatting and any incorporated links were lost, but the text is true to the original reports.



Unfortunately, I only have the posts from 2005 and one or two from the 2006 time frame. The rest of 2006 is still lost.



Visit the RTQ Archive category to check them out!



Some topics covered include...



The Mhara and the Poison Forges



Elefin and the Blood Dagger



The Saga of Lancaster



I hope you enjoyed this little walk through Oberin's history. Check back over the next week for additional posts.
