Christmas season has hit Zodiac! There is snow on the ground and there are presents to be found! For the time being, you can find presents under bushes all over Zodiac! They can contain anything from rare items like mounts, essences, and powerful weapons, to more common things, like snowballs and dynamite. You can also find special holiday items, like candy flutes, scythes, and more! Act fast though, because the holiday season is short, and Santa only comes once a year!

  • December 13th - Necromania


Image:NecromaniaNews13December2010.png

A Post Apocolyptic world where the humans are forced to fighting as small civilizations for their own survival against the hordes of zombies that have over-run the city and the bandit factions that have broken away from the community to fend for themselves. Safe Havens are stationed around the world, acting as shelter to whats left of the human civilization but how "safe"?

The humans must venture beyond the havens and scavenge the city for anything, everything that can help them survive yet another day. Constant zombie hordes weaken the Safe Haven's defenses and the task to maintain the barricades becomes as essential as oxygen.

I met up with Sage (DeCeaseD) from Necromania to find out more about the server and what plans he has for future development. For the full interview click here.

Note: Pending a name change to Necromania the server is currently called Aurora.

November

  • November 17th - N-Pulse - Change in Direction


As you may or may not know, Administration has changed. Daisuke, and Akomplice are now our Server Admins. This will help management be more flexible with other things we need to do, so a late congratulations to them.

With a lot of recent decisions, i can assure you guys will see way more changes to the current state of N-Pulse, additions of new and some old systems ect. Since the school year has started again, our staff team has become smaller due to our staff having school, and work priorities, and we are in need of the all development positions, so if you have any interest contact SlikRick or Matt in-game.

We currently have a lot of promising staff opportunities with us, and if your willing to work with us, we can work with you and you'll enjoy the stay. SlikRick and Matt also decided that we will be doing SotM (Staff of the Month) when our team gets larger, and what that means is reward(s) for your hard work. Most development will be directed into fixing up our backups, and a bit into new systems that will benefit our economy (More to come about this later.) Once again for anyone who is not aware, Rebirth has been put on hold so we can concentrate more on our current state so we don't risk being removed from the Classic tab. If you have any questions in regards to applying for a position, please contact SlikRick or myself in-game.

  • November 16th - Unholy Nation - Monthly Spar Tournaments


Things are starting to cool down this November, so let's keep ourselves active and warm with a few monthly tournaments.

If you'd rather huddle up with someone else, fight with a partner in the Tag Team UTC on Sunday, November 21st at 6 PM.

You should be online at least 15 minutes early if you want to participate in either. The winners of these tournaments will each get a statue in the Town Center spar lobby, 25 EP, and a hat ticket--this is probably a good chance to invest in a nice warm hat for winter on UN!

  • October 29th - Unholy Nations - The Ghost Ship


Image:UnholyNationsNews29October2010.jpg

The inhabitants of Evenvale haven't even been able to put up all of their seasonal decorations due to complaints of a "ghost ship" harassing the village. What could it mean?

Evenvale is located on the eastern coast of the overworld, near Tumantra. Use your investigative skills to solve the troubling puzzle, and save the village so that they can enjoy their festivities!

Be weary of announcements that occur every two hours, giving you tips. It's your only hope. Tracking down a meandering ghost ship is like... Well, trying to catch a ghost.

  • April 11th - Atrius - Updates

Atrius has had exceptional progress over the past month as a preview server and has applied to become a hosted server! Some, but not all, of the progress has been the new leveling system, quests, and bosses.

The dynamic leveling system uses points to improve statistics such as vitality (health), energy (food), strength (melee power), and accuracy (damage on gun). Information on the leveling system can be viewed when your press the S button in the upper lefthand corner of your screen.

The next important update is quests. You can view the quests you are on by pressing the Q button in the upper lefthand corner of your screen. By completing a quest you can gain experience. Beware though, because the quests are beginning to incorporate bosses. These bosses will be difficult to defeat, but there is wonderful news! Atrius is planning to create a clan system and this system will be used with the existing quest system to give Atrius a more team-friendly attitude. These quests also differeniate from quests on other servers because you are able to use guns to complete the quests. This provides an entirely new and unique avenue to questing that should be enjoyable for all! On top of all of this, 2-3 shops are being released as well!

  • March 15th - Graal Kingdoms - Day of the Sun Event


On March 14th the brave warriors of Graal Kingdoms gathered together in the Misty Mug Tavern to discuss how to rid our kingdom of the terrible snowstorm that was plaguing. During the discussions, a wounded warrior entered the Tavern warning of an attack on Bomboria, the warriors quickly rushed out of the Tavern and quickly vanquished the mass of deadly skeletons and rexes.


During the battle, a map was discovered on the body of one of the skeletons which showed the location of the evil wizards hideout located on Crescent Isle, plans were quickly made and supplies were gathered for the long journey.


After sailing across the rough seas, we hit land and found the island to be swarmed with all sorts of deadly monsters. The battle was fierce and many warriors were wounded, but fought on until all of the monsters had been defeated. At this point, the hunt was on for the Winter Wizard.


During the search the Winter Wizard managed to charm a number of the heroes causing them to attack one another. The battle was fierce and some of the brave warriors died, but in the end the wizard was defeated and forced to remove the spell from Graal Kingdoms. The snow is melting and within a few days will be completely gone, and kingdoms can return to normal.


Thank you to everyone who participated.


At the end of the event, conqueror was awarded an Inferno Sword and mattdapimp will receive a sun shield.

It has been a dark time in the land of Graal. The constant fierce blizzards covering the land and trees in a heavy layer of snow. Only the bravest of warriors are able to leave there homes and venture fourth into this arctic like temperatures and heavy winds.

This year the winter seasons has lasted far longer then normal. The citizens of Graal are beginning to starve with the lack of food and the inability to plant more in this hellacious weather. Even the hunters are unable to find food as the inedible Bomys move into the once safe town of Bomboria and begin killing off every wild animal they can find to feed themselves.

Stories of an very powerful wizard casting a ice storm spell over all of Graal kingdoms has been whispered between children, but as the months drag on the many of the adults and now even the king have come to believe these tales.

The King of Graal Kingdoms has issued a decree, asking for a group of the bravest warriors to venture fourth and find out what is causing this abnormal weather, and put a stop to it by any means necessary.

If you wish to participate in this event, please notify chaosorc either in game or though forum PM. The event will be held on Sunday March 14th at 21:00 server time.

We hereby challenge, you, Unholy Nation, to a battle which we feel you can't possible win: a battle to decide the best Graal server, involving events on both UN and Era.

We don't expect you to accept, of course, being a group of chickens.

Sincerely,

Players of the Classic iPhone server can now join or create their own guilds! With over 2300 guilds currently at war the system is proving to be a huge success, but which of the guilds will stand the test of time?

Creating a new guild only costs 2000 gralats, and to simply join one you can visit the new guild section of the in-game menu.

  • February 15th - Valikorlia Cumulative News

Valikorlia has made excellent progress over the past few months. Thanks to Dylan (loneangelibesu), Valikorlia has an operational crafting system. Along with the crafting system, Zectra has created a fully customizable pet system.

Once the template is finished, players will be able to create their own personal pet images. These pets do more than follow you around, because there are options to have your pet follow you, stay put, and scavenge. Scavenging is the most useful function of a pet. In scavenging, each pet has its own unique item list and it searches randomly for these items. While scavenging is extremely useful, the pet system will be functional as a job in the future. Keep tuned in by playing Valikorlia!

  • January 26th - Maloria


As our second Preview time is running towards an end, we feel as if we've accomplished a fair bit in comparison to what we set out to do. We've gotten a fair amount of bugs regarding gameplay fixed, and the remaining few shouldn't last too long. I'd like to thank the players who continuously logged on to check for updates and help us with testing, couldn't have done it as good without you!

We're currently planning out how we want the world to look like as well as where the player needs to go and when. After that has been done, we'll be working on area by area until we have enough content to actually sustain gameplay. System wise everything of huge importance is completed, so we're looking forward to making the world playable.

Currently players have access to the (temporary) starting area which leads you to D'unhyl Town after completing a quest to slay a couple of blobs. This town will most probably remain as one of the very first areas that players encounter. Our current focus lays on finishing it up and adding the next couple of quests that will lead you to slay a certain Brood Mother in D'unhyl Forest, but more about that some other time!

I'd like to bring to light that yes, we are very much looking for development help. Mainly in the graphical section, but also when it comes to levels. Do note that if you are interested in helping us with the latter, you need to be able to work with Gonstruct since all of our levels will be made using tilelayers, and the normal editor is not capable of supporting them. We'd be happy to help you understand how it works though, of course.


If you'd like to contact us about anything at all, you can either poke us when we're online, or leave us a message at www.maloria.com
