Season 1, Update 13: Of Copper and Corruption

Started by Valkyrja, June 24, 2024, 11:09:37 AM

Armageddon has been open for just over a week and it has been incredible!

It has been an incredible week! We've seen 225 unique logins and 50 new accounts created since launch. During US peak time, we've had nearly 70 active players each night, while the 'EU Peak' has seen 50 to 60 active players. Impressively, the T'zai Byn clan has reached a record of 42 members!

Our new approach to seasonal consolidation is leading to unprecedented levels of interaction for all players. Off-peak players are now finding the tavern bustling with activity. Every area of the game and each clan is well-populated, with plots unfolding in all directions!

There has never been a better time for PCs to dream big, achieve great things, and make history. There are plots to discover, threads to pull, mountains to climb, depths to plunder, and mysteries to untangle.

Updates from this Week

  • Updated warehouse rental in Allanak is no longer gated behind staff support. Now, all it takes is a merchant token from your friendly neighborhood Templar.
  • New apartments and warehouses added to the game.
  • Improvements to how wagons work.
  • Added 'room' functionality for teaching, allowing PCs to teach skills to an entire room of eager students.
  • Magickers may find that they are now able to share and draw on one another's magickal energy.
  • Building of new areas, NPCs and objects for ongoing plots has not stopped.
