    A'therian Archives Have Launched

    OccidentalAnvil
    By OccidentalAnvil,
    Well, it's finally here. Officially, at any rate, apparently we weren't trying all that hard to keep it locked down before yesterday. Because last night is when I threw the switch and sent the A'therian Archives live from the forums. Thanks so much to @Nathan for his help on the coding side! Inside, you'll find the world of A'therys, with a lot of knowledge and a few secrets. Later today, once I've added the page won by our top donator @Sellt, I'll have 160 pages up there for you. That's significantly more than before, particularly since I culled a lot of pages before adding new. Now, since we're talking about what's better about this new implementation, let's break it down: Better Categories! You all care about your nations most, so navigation is primarily centered around them. Better Navigation! So much easier to use, just click the page you care about in standard drill-down menu fashion. Better Mobile! Yep, the thing auto-formats to smaller screens, just like the site. Try it on your phone, it's a really nice experience. Official Cities! I've had people asking me about this one for literal years. I'm sure you care more about your own towns, but here these are. Site Integration! My personal favorite, the whole thing is displayed without you ever leaving the website. Looks nice, plays nice, no mess. I'm sure there's more but those five things are what spring to mind at the moment. To go see it for yourself, you can either click the big "A'therian Archives" menu button up there, or you can hover over it then click the "Official Lore" button that pops up, either one works. I hope you enjoy! -OA

    So, after working for the past week,  Loot Caches are upon us.   Easy to use for you guys.  Right click one of these puppys   Once right clicked,  youll be given this menu   Then, choose what you want.   Armor, Blocks or Tools.  That's it.     Oh, and you may want to know how you get these wonderful stars?  Well,  small chance of them dropping from Medium and Hard mobs or alternatively for those that are lazy or wish to support the server,  5 for $2.99 on the store.   Have fun, Barnie (Josh)

    A decision and plan on player nation heads.

    Edd
    By Edd,
    Ok so we have players as Helpers, that’s a good start on the road to recovery, now for the whole player nation head thing.   Given this a lot of thought, had a lot of input. Here is ultimately what needs to be achieved with the process:   A process that doesn’t take to long or a lot of manual effort. A process and outcome that makes the most people happy. A process that ensures the wrong people do not get it, or at least limits that as much as possible.   Really the solution is a simple one. It may not be the most involved or roleplay one, may not be one that works but it is one that archives what I stated above.   A post will be put up for the nation that needs a new head. Only players form that nation may run. Each of those players who are wishing to run will have 3 days in which to reply to that thread with their application. There will be no format for said application, you will be judged on what you write, what your ideas are. Any leader of people should be able to do this without issue.   After the three days, three people will be selected. The best of the best so to speak. These people will be selected by staff. Call that part a vetting process.   Once selected, there will be a poll on who gets the position. This poll will be open to the entire server community. The reason for this is because while we have six nations, we are one community and as someone quite rightly pointed out to me, a nation head and his / her leadership can easily effect the entire community, so it is only right that everyone gets their say. Really when it comes down to it.   The person with the most votes will take the position, just like any real election. Yes, it is a popularity contest for some part, you have to be liked to be electable. A person who isn’t liked will never ever be able to lead efficiently. That’s just the world, that is just human nature.   Now again, this may not be the most exciting or in depth way of doing it but it is the most efficient and something that will not consume a load of unessecery time.   I think everyone however can understand this and understand why. Now one final part, players who have been previously banned or have a history of negativity in the community (aka smart to not get caught half the time) will not be chosen to run. Bans for minor offences like once upon a time you were a bit of a dick but now you’re a decent person who has constituted positively to the community, you will be fine. This of course will be up to staff judgement and the judgement. This I know people will understand.   Ok good, that’s that.  This is all pretty straight forward, so I don’t think there will be many question but if you want to ask ask. Oh one final thing, nation heads will be reviewed every month to make sure all is well and they stay in that position. Mainly things like activity and what they have accomplished. Obviously bad people will just be removed.

    TotM | Valzanttar | February

    Roselis
    By Roselis,
    It's the 1st of the month and to kick it off, I'd like to announce that our first winner of Town of the Month in the Overall category is.. Valzanttar! I'd like to give a great big shout out to @Chronus Blazebringer and all the lovely people of Valzanttar for their great work within the community and town! Valzanttar has not only been lending out a helping hand for their new players and been a driving force in keeping RP well and alive in their nation, but showcases their beautiful build style as well! ~ Here's what some fans had to say: "A member of Valzanttar helped me learn how pvp as an Exemplar, their town is very pretty and makes me jeaous. Their members are diverse in all aspects of the server and are open to helping their nation develop. I wish I could live there but sadly a witch who lives in the temple chains me to the capital " - Selukkite Fan Boy "They are so kind so friendly and they are the capital of the most politically involved city state with regards to other nations. Chronus is a real credit and asset to the nation as well as Tim!" - Crazed Heretic "Chronus is a very well respected player within Ar-Selukk and has helped me numerous times! Valzanttar is always recruiting new players to become the future of A'therys, and stays very active with the politics of Ar-Selukk." - Friendly Neighbour Valzanttar's beautiful temple! ~ We got the chance to ask Chronus and a couple other folk at Valzanttar some questions and this what they had to say:   1. What are your town's aspirations and major goals for the future? My main goal for the town is to turn it into a sprawling role-play metropolis that provides a wide range of events, activities, and opportunity for all types of role players to come and make the town feel truly alive and vibrant. We hope to accomplish this by designing a fully fleshed out role-play system that will allow members and visitors to role-play every aspect of life in the city. This system will include guides on how to create role-play characters, the culture of Valzanttar, and rules to give a sense of order to the role-play. We also would like to promote role-play through the use of institutions such as the archives, Museum, religious system and university. Using the basis of religion, we hope to establish holidays that we can use to host events. We also hope to establish spots in town that members or even outsiders can build their own role-play hotspots such as taverns, specialty shops, and whatever else the role-players come up with (they are creative bunch you know). This main goal is also intertwined with my other two top goals for the town. My secondary goal would be to turn Valzanttar into a burgeoning hub of trade. My hope would be to turn Valzanttar’s future marketplace into an international space where merchants from all over the map income to not only trade their goods but their stories cultures and ideas through the use of the role-play system. My third goal which would be assisted by Valzanttar’s role-play system and international market would also be to turn Valzanttar into a political diplomatic hub. I honestly found diplomacy during the last map boring, unfulfilling, and ineffective. I hope to change this by injecting more role-play into diplomatic talks between Nandar, the city state that Valzanttar resides in, to create a more fulfilling and lasting effect. Recently I have been speaking to the head of foreign affairs of the dagger lands and below is a short list of how I thought establishing diplomatic relations should proceed and is a system I hope to refine and use for all future diplomacy talks.
    •    Establish an embassy in Monas- So that I have a presence and location in The Daggerlands from which I can voice my opinions/concerns to The Daggerlands Gov't. I am still building up my town but as soon as I can I will make a spot available for The Daggerlands to have establish an Embassy in Valzanttar.  •    Cultural Exchange Events- As a way of injecting RP into diplomacy and so that both sides can understand the way of life, customs, and traditions. This is a good way to learn about the viewpoints of each other and understand what influences our stances. •    RP-Meetings- a bit drier but needed so that both sides can exchange their views and stances on issues in A'therys. I.E- Trading, wars, tensions, etc.  •    Treaties- When both sides are comfortable with each other and feel that relations have properly developed then we would be able to make true treaties that both sides are actually committed to. 2. What things do you find yourself and your residents participating in the most?  We seem to build, trade, and role-play the most within Valzanttar. Also lately a growing number of town members have also been participating in PVP raids and having a good amount of fun doing so. 3. What would you like to say or establish about Valzanttar that you may not have had the chance to do so before? I would like to say that everyone is welcomed within Valzanttar, and that I will try my hardest to give you a town and community that you can enjoy and create bonds and memories.  4. What's it like to be a part of Valzanttar? "Valzanttar has a great community, we many people who make it a great time. We all work together to help the town. We all donate materials or yora or time to help build the town. Back in V2 it was a great town, so I think we are definitely leaving a legacy. The town is very organized, with everything in a specific location. Even the farms are specifically made. There is also great communication through the town skype chat. There has been a lot of town progress, and I hope to RP more with my town mates soon." - @Timbobuhler 5. What are your favourite thing(s) about your town's community? "Our community works together in order to succeed. No matter what they are willing to help with anything they are asked. As a town leader it is important to help your community succeed and stick together no matter what." - @Benattack For those interested here are some quick links to their recruitment and town information pages: http://atherys.com/forum/index.php?/topic/171-the-city-of-valzanttar/ Their town posts will be featured until the 1st of next month and they will also receive an in-game trophy to display in their town, once that is completed by the build team! (slightly unrelated, but organized by the same great people!) http://atherys.com/forum/index.php?/topic/1118-the-nandar-emirate/ ~ Make sure you congratulate everyone from this lovely town on their hard work and dedication!  A very well deserved win! Can't wait to see what's next from you all!
