April 1st to April 7th is the First Rising Holiday! We do not have a schedule planned at this point in time, however we will probably host the main event on April 3rd which is a Saturday.

We will have something new this year though. We plan to introduce Holiday Spawn for the First Rising. These mobs will only spawn during the holiday. They will give extra goodies if you can find them and kill them.

More details will follow as the holiday gets closer!

We hope to see everyone during the holiday week!

I almost forgot, and we will see a return of the First Rising Maze!!!!

The third dungeon on Andromeda is now open. Just finished it up tonight. This means all 3 dungeons listed on the map are currently open and ready to delve into. Be careful though they can get pretty dangerous.  Happy Hunting!

Well the Day Has Finally Come For the Big releases! Webpage Links will all be at the end.

First Order of business is We are Happy to announce the Opening of Andromeda Map! In order to get to Andromeda you will need to use 1 of 4 Crystal Gates located on the Terra Map. To use the gate you need to double click the green crystal located next to it. This will open a gump which will allow you to change maps and enter a gate code on that map. Undiscovered locations will be shown in the gump but not the code. Discovered locations will show the code in the gump as numbers. I have arranged for one to have been pre discovered on the Andromeda map, and I will tell you the location of one of the gates on the Terra Map. It is located just south of the field at Aria Farm.

While in Andromeda you will be able to use all travel spells. However you may not use them to actually get there or back. You must use the Crystal Gates to go between worlds. Happy hunting for locations. Remember there are 4 on Terra Map and 5 on Andromeda.

There are 5 towns, 3 dungeons, and several places of interest on the Andromeda Map. 1 of the dungeons is not quiet ready but will be in a few days. Housing can be placed on Andromeda as well.  Also about 70% of the Wildlife is spawned including sea life. Andromeda is a wilderness and can prove dangerous so be sure to stock up on Full Fairy Jars. Healers are few and far between in the vast wilderness. A downloadable png image of Andromeda is available on the codex of lore main page in the right panel.

Next Up, All the Warehouse Order System Npc's have been on Terra Map and Andromeda Map. Please read the guide to the warehouse order system before utilizing it. There are just over 1000 orders in the system. Lots of reward possibilities as well. This system will get crafters back into the game for sure. Especially if your adventurers start selling some of the resources they could be collecting while out hunting. The order system has an auto fill function. This function however cannot tell the difference between certain items in your pack. So be sure to read the guide and not carry anything you do not want it to use to fill an order.

Also I have added into the crafting section on the codex of lore a page about Enhancement Crafting. This page includes all individual deed caps except the legendary deeds.

With The Warehouse Order System Nearing Completion, I would like to post a statement of intent about the Enhancement Deed and Slayer Deed Stones.

Once the Warehouse Order System Drops it will become a bit easier for crafters to get the "Guide to Enhancement" which allows a player to craft the Enhancement Deeds and Slayer Deeds. It is my intent to remove these stones from the museum sometime after the Warehouse Order System Release. This will give crafters more of an opportunity to expand their trade as they would become the only source for it. The Slayer Removal Deed will be moved to the Terra Gold Stone as it is not craftable.

This transition will not be immediate, as I will keep partial eye on those who are crafting them. If I feel like we have enough crafters capable of making them around, I will then remove the stones.

Non-crafters be advised, enhancement deeds require many things to make. Some not easy to come by for your typical crafter. They require things such as gems, peerless reagents, preserved jeweled dragons eggs, and preserved jade spiders eggs. All of these provide possible trade avenues between adventurers and crafters. So adventurers could sell these on a vendor or use them in trade for other goods.

There are many resources that adventurers could also gather from the tougher mobs that your average crafter would not be able to harvest from. Example would be the Mastix of Mastix point, or Cockatrice in the Temple of the Wastelands. While these resources can be acquired by easier means, the examples I use produce a fair amount more resources then your typical sources.

We are Happy to Announce that "the Demon's Hold" Dungeon has been reopened. It is located by using the wishing well just outside Raenora. It is a bit spendy compared to your usual wishing well but not outrageously so.

Be advised this is not a newbie dungeon. It is also not the toughest one either.

Many thanks to all the staff that took part in finishing up this project, the others that have recently finished, and the ones nearing completion.

We are happy to announce that the Orchold Dungeon is now open.

Orchold is a Terra Map Dungeon whose entrance is located in one of the Orc Forts north of the wall. FYI there are two forts with areas where it appears to have a dungeon entry. Only one of these is now active.

Happy Hunting!
