It's a New Year! What a perfect time to look at our goals from 2016, see how we did, and look forward to 2017.
Our main goal in 2016 was more events, more lore, and increased story. Here are the major events we ran in the year:
The Plagues: We expanded on the story of Legion and Shade. It started with the plagues released upon the land. The reaper, the horned one, the beholder, and more were sent into the land and can now be mastered by the champions through the use of their boneyards.
While you have always been able to raid, you can now do it with style. You can kidnap citizens from other cities or steal some of their monuments. What better way to show how dominant you are over other organisations?
Urzog and his Eastern Horde have assaulted and slaughtered the former inhabitants of Skegdald, for reasons that have not been made clear. The capability of the Eastern Horde was on full display however, with the entire area filled with blood, gore, and fire.
Nine memories were discovered over the past few months, some of the fallen Goddess Eloweth, the others of the tormented God the Legion. Once all nine were discovered, more reflections were released, however, these ones belonged to the Mad God Malkav.
A great explosion erupted from the volcano in Yhumara, causing a rockslide within the underwater cavern. As the rocks cleared it revealed a cave, leading to the tenth, and final, monolith.
Hormack, of the Order of Sages, was thrilled to finally find the missing piece to centuries of work within the Order. Ageranu, Vasharr, Arakis, Oystir, Theophilus, Leighanna, Pellerin, Salik, Favrielle, and Mercer gathered to listen to Hormack speak of the monolith. He began deciphering the runes, however, only a few were legible.
It was a cold morning that Aetherius awoke to the very ground shuddering and shaking beneath their feet. Down below, in the bowels of Dis, they soon learned the Legion of the Fallen has not been quiet in his occupation of the underworld. Pulling a shade from his body, the Legion tasked it to prove itself to him, and sent it hurtling to the Prime Material Plane.
Ironbeard has a long lost brother, Silverbeard, who is tired of his brother getting all the attention. Yulia, Ironbeard's wife, has challenged her so-called "ungrateful brother-in-law" to see who gets more help, Ironbeard, or Silverbeard.
The world was startled today by the cacophonous noise of hundreds of turkeys. Some investigation has revealed a humble turkey farmer in the Bardosi who has thrown open his barn doors to welcome potential customers onto his farm.
The Wardancer class is no more, and in their place, the Berserker profession now exists! The vast majority of Wardancer skills (pretty much everything except the kicks and some useless attacks) have been moved over into two of the new skills (Maiming and Rampage), and a new skill has been added - Warchants.
