Also we will be accepting bets on each race, the money will be put into a cumulative pot, the pot will be divided up among the those who chose the winner correctly. Also, there will be a one time only chance, at the begining of the first race, to place bets on who sweeps the series! 10% of the bets from each single race will be added to the final pot and the winners will take home quite a jackpot!

  • July 23rd - Zone Updates


Image:ZoneUpdateImage072309.jpg

As the image made by our GFX staff shows, Zone has had a large set of updates today.

- A new Iricia base selection system has been added which allows you to choose a base to spawn to. You can spawn to any base that your team currently controls.

- In addition to the base selection system, a focus system has been implemented on the sparring planet. The system makes it easier to focus on certain parts of the sparring planet.

- The last update (and the largest one) is the new squads system. The squads system allows players to create squards or join their friends' squads (much like guilds). Squads can also participate in certain events together.

All throughout this weekend, there will be events on Zone. A special event will be held on Saturday at 12:00 EST (17:15 server time) by Donark for a twinblade.

  • July 19th - AEON - Opan Beta Application

Image:Aeonnews.png

We've been making some great progress on AEON over the last few weeks, and we are pleased to announce that our modern world, Opan, is ready for a closed beta test. At this time we have already issued invitations to some of our longtime players to test Opan, but we are still looking for more testers. Trial and classic accounts are more than welcome to apply, since we would also like feedback from non-gold players

The application for beta tester can be found here. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Napo (*napo_p2p) or Hatred (*Hatred89). We hope to see some of you on soon!

Image:ZodiacV2img.PNG Zodiac's Staff are currently working on the next version, so far they're completing the base of the Server, including systems such as the Inventory (Q), Status (W), Equipment (R), Basic PvP Combat, a New Boat System, and much more!

When the base is complete they will begin announcing new planned features, and look to the community for talented Level Makers, and Graphic designers to help make Zodiac V2 shine! To keep in touch with Zodiac's V2 updates Click Here!

Also, a new Tutorial has been released. "This is our first step in making Zodiac more newbie-friendly, as it teaches a couple fundamentals of Graal and Zodiac. Most of which should come naturally after button-mashing for menus but it's all nice, spelled out and mandatory." Said Jerret, a developer of Zodiac.

  • July 9th - Graal Kingdoms - Monster Siege Part 1


Image:Gknews070909.png

There's a letter. It was dropped by a Skelly. Hm... it's pretty garbled and torn up. Only one thing can be made out from the mess, "... we will attack..."

Sounds ominous enough doesn't it? We need adventurers to strike out and slay monsters by the ton. We need to discover what their plans are. Where are they going to attack, what are they going to do?

This Sunday at around 5:00 server time I should have an idea on where there are some monsters hiding out. If you're there I'll send you off to recover more plans. Each piece you bring back will win you an event coin. Maybe then we'll learn what they're doing.

  • July 7th - Graal Kingdoms - Quarter 3

  • July 5th - Unholy Nation Pets!


Hi guys! Sunday at 5:00 PM EST we will be having an open beta testing of the newest system on it's way to Unholy Nation. We have been slaving over it for two weeks, and are excited to get the final product public! You guessed right, it's the future pet system!

Image:UnholyNationPets.PNG

Just be ready to log onto Unholy Dev and have fun. The main objective is to evaluate the stress this system will have on the server when we have a large group of players using it at a time. There will be a thread on our own UN forums system (and the GraalOnline forums) for your opinion of the system.

Keep in mind this is the beta! So what you're seeing isn't the finished product. Thanks!
