  3. Much though I'm sad to see you go, your time has come, as it did for me those years back. The world turns and calls us elsewhere, that's just how life works. I still remember the piece that introduced you to me, blending Fendelian ramblings with stilted Welsh; it floored me, inspired me, made me glad to see that someone had taken my world and run with it in a way I'd always hoped for. You didn't just use it, you cared for it. You wrote with a voice that was borrowed and yet all your own. When my time came, I could think of no better person to carry the torch, and now I know of no one at all. It is a choice that cannot be made lightly, for the foundations of this place are in the words we shared with the community. Without them, and the people who helped us craft them, this server could have been any other. What it may yet be, remains to be seen. Good luck in your future creative endeavors, whatever they might be. I consider myself fortunate to have been privy to some of your other efforts, so I feel I can say with certainty that you won't lose your way. Just keep that obsessive spark, it serves you well. -OA --------------- "But where will you go, Master Ironstride? What will you do now?" "My dear boy, I have no idea. And that is perhaps the most exciting thing. For so many years I've traveled, seeking answers to the questions in my dreams, the memories of a life not my own. I've climbed to the peak of the Ber Gholraggh, delved deep beneath the Sea of Glass. I've passed between worlds, seen the fraying ends of existence as they loosen from the Mesh. I've treated with dragons, waxed poetic with the First. Gods, it was I who chained the very Slumbering Isles to this earth, and strode across them like the Creator himself! Now, the phantoms are banished from my mind, and I feel as though I've been reborn. A life is a terrible thing to waste, so I think I shall go live it." "I was there! For so many of those adventures, for so much of my own life. But now, I fear nothing else I do can measure up to it all. What should I do? You have your new life, but where can I go in the one I have left?" "Olivair, adventures are made grand by those you share them with, but they are ever only yours. Our ordeals were as much yours as mine, never forget that. Treasure what has been, what we shared, but use those experiences as a lens through which to view the morrow. If there's one thing I've come to understand, it's that the best in life is always beyond the next sunrise. And for men such as us, it is in the unknown that we truly thrive."
  4. It's been a good three months' coming honestly; but I'm stepping away permanently. Three years ago, when @OccidentalAnvil was transitioning out and needed someone to step up; I honestly couldn't say "yes" fast enough. A'therys was my home since 2012 years and needed help, and I was more than happy to assist. Although I've been less active in the last few months, this entire project has been an unforgettable series of meetings, calls, and discussions regarding the future of A'therys. I want to thank everyone for your support during this project. It was great to rekindle friendships and forge new ones in an effort to find what the next phase of A'therys would look like. I'll never forget the ideas you threw at me and let me jump into, or the late night conversations with last minute edits. Even though this last year was a whirlwind I'd like to take a moment to thank past and remaining members of the Lore Team; @Sellt , @Crash, @HaedHutner, and other members of the day-admin staff; and of course all of the Build Team and volunteers who made the effort to bring the world to life. Your input is invaluable in guiding the future. I really wish I could've done more. There were many parts left undone and I know I fell short on some of the expectations many of you had of me. For that, I am sorry. All I hope is that I was able to nudge our home forward just a bit more towards becoming the ideal space we all want it to be. A'therys will forever be a part of me and I look forward to crossing paths with all of you again.

      Bro, I miss talking to you and Nully. We should hang out sometime. Still got Butters around.

  8. Hear ye, hear ye! This weekend only! A once in a lifetime experience, only here on A'therys! Hello everybody, new and old. Today we have a very special announcement to make - one which offers you the unique chance to get a sneak preview of one of Horizon's upcoming cities! This weekend only, from (SELLT PUT IN A DATE HERE) to (SELLT PUT IN ANOTHER DATE HERE OTHERWISE WE WILL LOOK SILLY), we will be opening up the capital city of Seten-Nan on our servers for you to explore. Feel free to log in and walk around, take in the sights and sounds of the nation of Dalkun-Tir, and experience life as a caravan-dweller. From the towering monumentality of the bazaar to the roaring shoreline of the river, Seten-Nan will surely thrill and excite you! In addition to seeing what the build team is capable of, we will be testing out our custom built Quests plugin on you, our ever-faithful guinea pigs. Talk to the interesting citizens of the city and see what you can do for them! We will be opening up feedback forms (basically this topic) for you to provide us with bug reports and hopefully some praise too. Once this event ends, we will be deporting all stragglers and development will will resume behind closed doors, like Willy Wonka's factory after a health inspection. Until then though, we strongly recommend you come check it out. -Sellt
  9. Hello Atherys! Some good news for today. Atherys will join the State of Sponge today and present some new parts of Horizon! A bit more information and links to twich you can find here: https://forums.spongepowered.org/t/state-of-sponge-xviii-spongies-5th-birthday-bash/33519 See you there! Sellt
  10. Ya, I understand that. I thought that other options might be good info. I've been playing online games since the early 90s ... there's pvp concept? I've probably tried it.
  11. They are talking specifically about /server live (Evo).
  12. There're a few people new to the survival server -- almost all builders. One of the new players (Luke) is building a "citadel" area intended to be a PvP "objective." The assumption being that if you're occupying it, you're inviting PvP. There's nothing worth occupying just a series of positions to defend or attack. It reminds of what a group I was part of in UO did back in the 90s (also in several other games). We were known as Shadowclan. We set ourselves up in a fort and welcomed attackers, and sometimes we went on raids. We RP'd orcs so we had constraints on our equipment and tactics, but generally, we had a ton of fun. Hopefully, those attacking us did too. There's more than one way to enable consensual PvP -- just a few ideas to consider.
  13. Fort Crossroads forever!

    Daggerlands forever!

  14. I agree with this. I grew up here during V1 and V2, I will always remember this server. Even if it isn't as popular as the days following the Jesse Cox video.
  15. This is really exciting news because I have been waiting to play the good old A'therys Ascended again for a long time! The issue is that the server is empty although there are still new people connecting the Atherys Horizons server and when you log in, there are only two options indicated - /server community and /server survival. I am sure that new people who join the server would rather play on the Atherys Evo server than just in the regular survival or build server. Even I did not know that you can join the Evo server again although I visit the survival server time to time. I know your priority as a staff and development team is still towards A'therys Horizons but it I think it is necessary for new people who join the server to know how to join the Atherys Evo server.
  16. I wish it was in development for 1.14.4 This is the best pack for shaders I feel
  17. On a break from college ATM so I'd be very down with the test server being made public, I miss messing around with the systems y'all had in place
  18. The Discord is a better place for this.
  19. hi any way you can help me get connected to the live server? might not be the right place to post this.
  20. Hope everyone's having a good life right now. Athery's still my favorite server and community of all times. Wish I could return to it. Haruspex gang 4Life ya meanz. Vrobros praising the sun :D jk, but yeah. 

  21. Rynelf's Dev Diary #2 Hello again. As you probably know, since HeadHunter's departure I am the lead (and only) developer now. I am not discouraged, however. This will be a brief update on what I've been working on recently. I have three primary goals/plugins: Towns, Quests, and RPG (combat). These make up the pillars of gameplay and are what I'm striving to get feature complete as soon as possible. Of course, there are various other plugins that support these that need to be maintained, but these are the most complex. Quests I consider Quests nearly production ready. It just needs a few more features and polish. What I've implemented recently: Timed quests Repeatable quests Dynamically hiding dialog options A simpler but more powerful NPC system Supporting a second scripting language (Groovy) that has better stability than the previous JavaScript version What I'm planning to implement: Better feedback for missing requirements on dialogs & quests Template quests that players can use to give tasks to other players (See https://github.com/Atherys-Horizons/AtherysQuests/issues/45) Expanding the online quest editor (See https://docs.atherys.com/plugins/AtherysQuests/Quest-Editor.html ) A better UI for displaying quests to the player (perhaps an inventory one) Towns HeadHunter left a great foundation that makes it easy to add features quickly. What I've implemented recently: Most /town commands (name, invite, join, claim, info, motd, description, leave, etc) Most /nation commands (name, ally/neutral/enemy, description, capital, etc) What I'm planning to implement: Plot "stuff" (owners, embassies, protection, etc) Resident commands (not many of them) The tax system RPG Much of the functionality in RPG is already there for the most part, but the main meat is missing: skills! What I've implemented recently: The base of how the skill tree will function (picking new skill nodes) What I'm planning to implement: More "types" of skills (toggleable skills, primarily) The skills themselves, of course Like Quests, a better UI (for upgrading your attributes and choosing new skills) Conclusion Hopefully this gives you an idea of where I am with plugin development. As always, I am always on the lookout for aspiring developers. I am Rynelf#8390 on Discord. Finally, as poll suggests I have been toying with the idea of making the test server open to the public. I've seen many people try to connect but the server is currently whitelisted. There wouldn't be much to do except see how the current systems work, and there won't be a guarantee of saving progress as I have to clear the database regularly for testing. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
  22. https://discord.gg/4gQercm Feel free to join whether you are from Aloreh or not. Members wishing to make a Noble House must PM me in the Discord for proper permissions. House Patriarchs/Matriarchs get full control of their own custom chatroom, and can grant their members permissions. To gain the Orator permission, you must PM the High Mediator for qualifications.
  23. 7/6/2019 Aloreh National Reforms The role of High Mediator will be in use, but the rank has only three main jobs; mediate domestic disputes, perform as the National Ambassador, and only has a single vote to break all deadlocks within the Orator Court. The position of Lector General is now only bestowed upon the Mayor of Methes Avonthes. Their sole job is to recruit players into Aloreh, train them in how the game works, find jobs for them to earn income, and provide appropriate housing for newcomers to the nation. The High Mediator is not King of Aloreh, the Houses have their own authority, but work with the High Mediator to protect the nation from external forces, to coordinate military operations with multiple House armies, or to prevent civil strife. The Nation will be decentralized. Instead of focusing the national control around the High Mediator, the power will instead be in the hands of individual Houses and their leadership. The cities and their leaders have always been the powerhouse of Aloreh, not who sat in the big chair. Instead of Minor and Major Noble Houses, all Houses are classified Noble House. All Houses may have a say in the Orator Court, as long as it's Orator Prince is active. There will no longer be a minimum or maximum active population requirement for Noble Houses to participate in the Orator Court. Noble Houses can band together to form a Great House. Great Houses are essentially unions of Houses, similar to a political party or faction. Any House under a Great House must always vote the same as their Great House's leader. Depending on how that is performed, a Great House could be a dictatorship to control Houses to follow your lead, or an Oligarchy of Noblemen and women who all vote with or against one another, where the majority vote wins the entire Great House vote. Every House under a Great House always has one vote, but combined with a Great House, multiple Houses all voting the same way can cause true change in the Orator Court. Great Houses are not a requirement to vote, they are simply an easier way to assure unified votes. House Leaders are not required to own a city to have a House, but must be in a city of Aloreh, even if another House owns it. Methes does count. Every Noble House may have it's own standing army, religion, events, and laws within their own property. Being in another House's city will require permission from the city leader to be permitted the same rights, otherwise, working together may be the best option, besides owning a city yourself. Aloreh is not a Democracy, so it's commoners receive no ability to vote, but a Commoner's Forum will be available in the Nation of Aloreh Club to allow the player-base of Aloreh to propose ideas, leave complaints or compliments, or to vote in Unofficial Polls who's outcomes may change Aloreh regardless. Although I do prefer following the Lore, I do not want anyone limited or discouraged from improving the nation or having their voices remain unheard. Orator Court Reforms: Toldei, 13th of Urth's Heart, AU 340 Regardless of Lore requirements, all Orators and House leaders may be male or female roles. Orator Princes and Princesses, as well as Patriarchs and Matriarchs. All House leaders can participate as their House's Orator Prince. Orator Court meetings will occur once a month, during the first weekend of the month, unless a national holiday also occurs. If that is the case, it will fall on the next weekend. If an Orator misses a meeting, they may still vote in the private Orator Court Club, but they will not be given a briefing. Bullet points may be posted a few days or so after the meeting to inform the Nation, but specific details are up to the Orators to catch. Orators may choose a temporary representative to go into Orator Court meetings if they can not make it, but must inform the High Mediator to protect from false representatives. Orators that have emergency situations where they cannot attend or appoint a representative, must inform the High Mediator before the meeting starts, otherwise, you will be labeled inactive. Repetitive instances means a dismissal from the Orator Court. Before an Orator Meeting will occur, a vote will be proposed the last week of the month to decide what day and what time it should be. It will always be a weekend, Friday-Sunday. Erassios is still missing. Any questions, concerns, or whatever may be on your mind, leave a message below, and I will try to get back to you when I next can.
