Bear me with, I know almost nothing about PWs and have never logged into one.
According to my understanding they are supposed to be essentially multiplayer modules but sort of like working 24/7, with the world state changing independently of you. Sort of like playing WoW or ToR, I guess (not that I ever have
). They seem to be mostly played by teams of people, but there seems to be nothing preventing solo characters from logging in and doing some quests.
So, are there any PWs operating on the premise that I can join at any time the server is online and I'm inclined to play, then walk around, enjoy the view, do some shopping, kill some monsters, save some maidens, finish the quest, log out and come back tomorrow or in a week, without having to commit to a regular party schedule (which is impossible for me due to completely irregular work hours)?
So basically playing solo (PvP preferably excluded), perhaps with a DM, on a persistent server, in irregular, random hours, at irregular intervals. Is this possible?
