As some may know I separated from a fiancee a few months ago, which led to a lot of figuring life shit out on the fly. I have just completed moving in to a new house and setting up internet. I've been pulling extra details and tours of duty to cover some expenses on top of spending time with my son, everything is starting to level out now and I'm back.
Let's sound off, so I can try to get a bearing on where I am with the site. I've been out nearly two months, if ANYONE is left, lemme hear you.
Floki streamlined our lore entries in to pages which you can now view via several options. At the top of the site's banner, your navigation bar, you'll see the Lore Codex tab. This will allow you to quickly view the lore entries from anywhere in the site. You can also access the lore from clicking on the canon lore board in the Codex section, or from the main portal.
There have been numerous lore additions that were approved by the staff team and moved in to official site lore tonight. These were crucial additions to patch some gaps in the areas of the lore that were lacking. I highly suggest reviewing the additions to better familiarize yourself with the world of Aedisia and more specifically the mainland of Kardania. This will also help give you a better understanding of the current plot. You can locate the individual threads in the Lore section, new additions are in the Advanced Lore, edits are in the beginner's lore.
The highlights were:
Re-written race lore for Hav'eh (located in beginner's lore)
Expanded history of Kardania
Expanded description and history of Sarenia
Explanation of the known spirit planes and Ascension theories of afterlife
Description of Adventia, Elysaer, and the Arcanium
Updated main plot summary in beginner's lore
There are a few other updates that are being finalized and will be presented within the next few days. These include:
Additions of "Talents" to skill system, allowing special abilities made by the player for characters to use in thread.
Revision of Ascension religion lore
More information on Demerians and Cursed Demerians (Dragons)
Main Plot IC Update
Once these changes are implemented, we will focus our efforts on the inventory, item creation, and faction systems. Reputation and title rank of characters will also be included. A few gameplay systems including simulated dragon hunting, plane walking, and etc are currently on the drawing board.
If you are considering submitting lore for the canon, now is as good as time as any to do it.
Stay tuned for further announcements,
