Dear all,

i would like to setup a private server. please dont get me wrong it wont be public, its gonna be lan based. it will be a surprise setup that i would like to do.

we are 5 of us that used to play non stop back in the days and we have not seen each other for about 6 years now. ( we all live in Kuwait) and we are all going to gather at my place soon. i would like to setup a lan EQ with 5 computers. and have them login and play together. it would mean so much to me if anyone can help me out here. i read alot online and tried a few things with no luck.

can anyone please help ? would anyone be willing to make a image with everything setup and running?

PEQ has a server repack as does AXClassic. It's a self contained package that has everything you need. You can use those to setup a private lan if you so choose.

The database however, will be lacking. Both have extremely non-classic and custom elements.

I always thought that a private EQ server set up well on a LAN would be a good "D&D" world. If you're a big nerd like me =)


GM could easily set up events like D&D sessions and your players can play through the adventures. Not a bad idea imo.

yes because why play a game that takes a long time to get set up in with 300 people when you can do it with 5 in the privacy of your own home!

Not nearly as good as something like Neverwinter Nights or a similar platform though.

Honestly, with 5 people playing a group oriented game, you should give DDO a try. It's based on micropayments now, so you can try out a lot of the lower level stuff for free and buy modules/expansions if you like the game.
