  • May 24th - Black and White Graals

Classic is pleased to announce the release of the Black and White Graals. Long thought to just be a folk legend passed down from player to player, these mysterious artefacts are steeped in magical power. The Black Graal grants its owner an unlimited supply of ammo; the white Graal blesses it's owner with the ability to heal any wounds, bypassing any healing restrictions. Be warned though that there is only one of each Graal available; if you want them, you'll have to hunt down and kill the existing owners.

Happy hunting.

  • May 21st - Mr Guess Visits Graal Kingdoms

A mystical wizard named Mr Guess is visiting Graal Kingdoms for a few days to play his favourite game. He can be found on the main islands including the start and Hotaru islands waiting for brave adventurers to track him down. Once found Mr Guess will give you 3 chances to guess his number between 1 and 200 before he inconveniently teleports to a new location. Those lucky enough to guess successfully will receive a reward and be entered into a special event for the chance to win a rare item after Mr Guess has departed from Graal Kingdoms.

Good Luck!

  • May 17th - Recent Updates on Maloria


Recent Updates:

  • Main Island has gotten a huge facelift, and it's not long until the entire island will have gotten a whole new look while sticking to the original layout of it.
  • A lot of graphics have been improved, and there's more to come of it!
  • Rain, Snow and Thunder effects have all been fixed up and had their lag issues fixed. (apparently it's not a good idea to constantly stack emitter modifiers!)
  • Wind has existed in the background a long time, but it has now gotten a visual effect to increase the effect of weather.
  • Weather in general has had a revamp to behave more realisticly.
  • Torches and leaves are affected by wind. Torches are also affected by rain.
  • Player data storage have been converted from .arc files to SQLite database.
  • Skill system has been completed, players can now properly add skill points upon level up.
  • Boats are finished, you can currently rent them south of main house. Two players can use the same boat at once.
  • Respawn system have been added, you now spawn at the nearest respawn point instead of spawning at the main house.
  • Crafting have been somewhat completed, yet to be implemented though.


We would be able to produce a lot more gameplay content, but we're in desperate need of someone capable of creating quality ganis, as we currently have no one on the team who feel capable of doing them.

We could also very much use another level creater, but it's not as vital for our progress.

  • May 3rd - Kingdoms: Challenge of the Lights


Image:Gknewseventmay032009.png

To celebrate the start of May and its burst of spring color, the symbolic Challenge of the Lights was introduced.

Amidst brightly colored flames, teams assembled to carry a pair of lit torches through waves of monsters.

Each team consisted of two torch bearers and two bodyguards. One torch was blue, and one torch was red. As the teams fought their way through the monsters and completed [or failed] one by one the server became lit blue and red.

At the very end, came the epic victory of two torch-holders who struck down a wave of demons and cyclopes even after their body guards had fallen.
