    Hey guys long time no see!! Just poking in to see how things are going, I hope Selt is treating you right. For those interested I apologize for my abrupt departure I had quite a bit of personal and work things that lead to me being over committed and I was unable to spend anytime on Atherys. I hope you guys are doing well and I do miss the community. Hope all goes well and I see you guys are making some progress. Have a great one!

    Little is known about the Ascendant named Vorske, he is a creature of mystery that floats around the A’therian skies occasionally dropping in to say hello to the mortals, or sometimes when he is in a particularly mischievous mood, mess with their minds. Many have seen him in person yet are always left confused as to why his shape and size is not like their own. Some claim he represents a Panda, others are confused as to what a Panda is as there is no such thing in the world of A’therys. One thing we do know though, is he does walk on two feet, stand like a man and due to an over active hormone imbalance has a massive amount of black and white fur all over his body. Vorske in his infinite wisdom, considers himself a God, a widely debated idea that has often been met with criticism or in some cases, false prophets that have been designed to take him down. One particular event was “operation rebel scum” otherwise known as “The Sakage incident”, where a group of misinformed troglodytes that thought it wise to slander the great Ascendant Vorske and his people, tried to destroy A’therys. They of course were unsuccessful due to Vorskes cunning plans, known as the “Unleash the Hinder protocol”, a super effective method that has and will always slay the most demonic of foes. For the most part, Vorske is a docile creature unless he comes across wrong doing then his mild temper flares into a rage. Sometimes, Vorske can come off as grumpy and un-approachable, this can be countered with a cold glass of milk, a plate of caramel cookies and something shiny that will distract him. All in all’ Vorske remains a strange creature, never truly understood by the mortals that roam A’therys. If you are lucky, he will interact with you and if you are extremely lucky, you may on occasion get a gift from him.

    Event 2 : Disappearance in Virion Alesce SOLUTIONS!!! Hi all! With 60 hours to solve the case, nineteen players submitted answers to solve the puzzle! Of nineteen players, six players were correct! The solutions are as follows : Hero Drink Weapon Drinks Theobald Whistwallow Crescent Rum Broadsword 3 Helghrian Toharus Cloud Wine Longspear 2 Ahlanna Jharov Forgefire Whiskey Scepter 4 Yai'vasa yav-Hashirem Legion Stout Crossbow 1 Corrigan Broad Dirty Parrot Battleaxe 5 So how does one solve this?! In-Game Clues The person who carried a Scepter drank four large bottles of liquor. Helghrian did not drink the Forgefire Whiskey. The male hero who drank Cloud Wine helped himself to two glasses. The female hero who carried a crossbow (who was not Ahlanna Jharov) was seen drinking a growler of Legion Stout. Theobald Whistwallow had exactly one less drink than the hero who drank the Forgefire Whiskey. Both Helghrian and the axe-wielding hero ordered more than one round of drinks. Yai'vasa yav-Hashirem was absolutely disgusted by the axe-wielding hero's flasks of Dirty Parrot. A dropped Scepter Wiki Clues Corrigan Broad's page notes his favored drink of Dirty Parrot Helghrian Toharus's page notes him as a skilled Spear wielder Your best means to eliminate most options was to use a Logic Grid, as below: All but one clue can directly be placed on the Logic Grid : which narrows down to a point where the player must make choices of trial and error to fit the remaining logic clues together : From here; it's a matter of comparing and contrasting possibilities, using the knowledge that Theobald and his equipment must have ONE less than the drinker of Forgefire Whiskey! FIRST PLACE WINNER @SethoMarkus SECOND PLACE WINNERS @Lemonbrainz1 @Jay-lee @lnShane @Chadrian THIRD PLACE WINNER @Gamma_Byte + an Honorable Mention to @StealthMelon, who correctly got who Disappeared, but did not have the other aspects correct. Thank you everyone who participated! Please feel free to discuss additional methods you may have used to solve the puzzle!

    A neat thing that I think could be added to A'therys is jail (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/jail/). It makes the Justice department of nations actually interesting and relevant and give actual punishments to criminals when KoS and Outlawing people is not effective. This could also be used against petty offenses of the server rules like swearing in nation chat or stealing from a nation member when banning or kicking is too extreme. There is a bail system within this mod which would act like a nice little coin sink and would motivate people to start making money to save their friends from the justice system. I know this could be easily abused but given to the right people, like nation heads or moderators this can add a interesting RP dynamic. dont hurt me if this is a bad idea.

    A'therys Conquest Know thyself, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories. ~ Sun Tzu Greetings, A'therys! I come bearing gifts. Today, I am going to go into an in-depth explanation of the new Conquest. Not only that, but if you stick around until the end, there is also a competition in it for you! Anyway, as some of you may know, I have been working on a new plugin which aims to achieve similar goals as the previous denizens-based system. Those being as follows: To create an environment where the PvPers of A'therys have a reason to collect within a limited size area in the world, so that it may be easier to find a fight if you're looking for one. To give nations a greater importance in the day-to-day lives of players. To offer an alternative way to gain experience To offer unique rewards based on one's participation in PvP I believe the plugin I have developed will accomplish all of these goals. And I hope that you will join me now as I go into as in-depth of an explanation as I can. Let's start from the beginning by defining some terms: Conquest Point - This is a location in the world which can be captured and held by a group of the players from the same nation. The plugin will automatically group players by nation, and will only allow a nation to interact with the point if there are more than 3 of it's citizens within the point's capture radius. - A Locked Point is one which cannot be occupied or garrisoned. Capture Radius - A sphere surrounding the very middle of the conquest point, which is marked by a beacon with the color of the occupying nation ( pic below ). Players must be within this radius in order to capture or garrison the point. Conquest Area - A larger sphere surrounding the beacon in the middle of the conquest point. If one is killed within this area by a citizen from another nation, they will drop a certain amount of Congealed Blood ( the Conquest currency ). If they already had some of this currency in their inventories, they will drop 30% of it instead. Garrisoning - When there is a recognizable group ( more than 3 players ) from a certain nation hanging around within the capture radius of a point which is already occupied by the same nation. These players will receive periodic awards of experience. Each time they do, there is a percentage chance for an amount of mobs to spawn within the capture radius. Ok, so far so good. I hope you're still with me. It's not crucial that you remember the above dictionary by heart. Fact is, you really don't have to think too hard about any of the underlying mechanics ( which I am about to explain ) while you're fighting with your buddies for the glory of your nation. Now we can get into the heart of the matter: The Mechanics This part of the thread will go over how to capture and hold ( aka occupy ) an area, what the benefits are of doing this, how to use the Conquest Shop and finally, a few words on the Resurrection Point mechanic. Occupation The first one to go over is occupation. It really is quite simple. If you see a point you like ( and one that's unlocked ), all you have to do to capture it is round up at least 2 of your buddies ( from the same nation ), go over there and hang around in the middle, around the beacon, until it's yours. There is a helpful progress bar at the top, which will display your progress. Thought really, capturing is currently so fast you really don't need to hang around for much longer than a few seconds until your nation occupies the point. The interesting bit is what comes next. A point will remain occupied by the same nation, until challenged by another. In simpler terms, your nation occupies the point until someone with a couple of buddies from another nation doesn't come over and take it from you. Garrisoning your point offers you a passive experience gain ( while you're still in it ). while at the same time there is the chance for a few mobs to spawn and spice things up for you and your mates. Conquest Shop If you're lucky enough, someone will indeed try to take your nation's point away. Well, you're not just gonna let that happen, are you? Physically defending your nation's point ( you know, with swords and bloodshed and all ) will allow you to gather something called Congealed Blood from the corpses of your enemies. Their items will still drop as normal within the Conquest Area, and that is where they must die in order for their corpses to yield the currency I mentioned. This is a physical item which you hold in your inventory. If you die with it within a conquest area, you will drop 30% of it and on respawn regain 70%. Upon killing another player ( from another nation! ), they will drop 1 - 2 Congealed Blood, which you can later use in the Conquest Shop. The shop I've mentioned multiple times until now is also very simple to use. Each nation has a double chest sized GUI ( 49 items ) to fill with nation-specific items. The competition I mentioned at the beginning of this is to do with these items specifically. But, more on that later. Any player can execute a command ( /cq shop ) and access their nation's conquest shop. The plugin will automatically detect the player's nation and display to them the proper shop. The items you will be able to purchase should be unique to your nation and serve as not only worthy battlegear, but also as a status symbol, showing everyone around you that you have fought in Conquest, and you have prevailed. Not only that, but I have recently been able to figure out a way to attach Particle and Sound effects to an item. This is what will give Conquest Items that extra bit of bling bling to make you stand out from the crowd. Resurrection Points And lastly, it is time to introduce you to the Resurrection Point mechanic. They look something like this: They look odd at first, but their presence is what makes Conquest a very tolerable system to PvP in. Simply said, the plugin has a resurrection mechanic. If you die within the Conquest Area, you will have the opportunity to get back into the fight as quickly as possible. Upon dying within a Conquest Area, you will lose your items as usual, with the exception of any Congealed Blood you might be carrying around. You will save 70% of that at least. The rest though, is gone, and will probably be picked up by the person who killed you. Don't worry though, cause you'll have your chance for revenge as soon as you respawn at your town. Conquest will give you a certain amount of time ( currently set to 40 seconds ) within which you should hopefully be able to pick up any spare bits of gear you might have lying around. If you manage to get geared up within the time limit, you can then execute the /rejoin command. 15 seconds of darkness later, you will be teleported to one of the many Resurrection Points scattered around within the Conquest Area, and you can get right back into the fight. The Resurrection Point you respawn at is selected randomly only if there is nobody else from within your nation who is hanging around the Conquest Point. If any of your fellow countrymen are still in there, fighting the good fight, Conquest has an algorithm which will attempt to teleport you to the Resurrection Point which is near as many of your nation-mates as possible. And that's that. It really is quite simple to work with. Conquest was designed from the ground up as an intuitive system. When you're out there, slashing your enemies to bits, I hope you won't have to think about the underlying mechanics too much. And now, on to the fun part... The Competition! As I mentioned previously, there is a competition involved. The Conquest Shop should launch with as full of an inventory of items to buy as possible. But, considering there are 6 nations and many possible items to make, there are only so many of us to make them. This is where you guys, the community, come in. We are offering 1,000 yora per item, created by a player, which makes it into the final shop inventory. It's not nation specific, you can suggest items for any nation. And if your suggestions make it into the final shop, you will get the yora for it! So, where can you submit? Why, right down here, of course! > Click Here for Competition Form < I wish all of you good luck, and I'm looking forward to checking out your suggestions!

    Today I discovered a cool open source voxel editor and decided to take it for a little spin. Naturally my go to is oriental stuff - surprise, surprise. Potions: It has an internal renderer that can toggle; emission, glass and metal. You can get some interesting visuals. Katanas: Old Guy and Hannya Mask: Sushi and Sake: For those interested the editor is MagicaVoxel.

    Hi Atherys! Today we talk a bit about rumors and why you shouldn't believe them. In the last two days i heard: 1. Monday a map reset happens <- seeing its Tuesday already and still same old map.. clearly a wrong rumor 2. Ar-Selukk gets deleted <- i can't even begin to wonder why someone came up with this and why you even believe it a little... if we ever would do something that monumental you would see posts from admins and me way in advance. That said, no plan to delete Ar-Selukk exists. 3. We are letting the server go into the darkness quietly. <- hell no. A while back i promised the server will still be around in a year. That hasn't changed. 4. All towns get wiped and only 5 per nation controlled by staff <- uh no. Just no. Player owned towns are part of atherys and will ever be. 5. Everything else <- if you didn't read it in a post from me or another admin look at it as wrong. About point three: Right now we are still working on getting the nether island out with all the features and there is still other things planned. Short post from me to point out some wrong rumors. Sadly still in the most active time at work right now (2-3 weeks to go. Then i get a lot of time back yay). But i'm still around, you can still hit me up on the forum, skype, when i get time to play or are on TS. If you heard a rumor ask me. I will tell you the truth. -Sellt

    @HaedHutner so i tried out conquest for the first time, pretty neat but here are some extra suggestions/features that might be also neat: - congealed blood would be given to the players to captures the points - a daily/hourly timer would give yora to the nation who caps it - players would only drop 1 blood but if there are other players near by the amount of blood would multiply. so if there was a 20v20, each player would drop 40 congealed blood - conquest points should be easier to get to - the ability for players to solo cap points - use NPC towns for nations that do not have capture points, nobody really uses them anyways - the ability to hire guards to defend the capture points kinda like the old capital guards. they would spawn in once there is a player within 100 blocks or something. these guys would but pretty expensive (10k?) and upgradeable to be stronger. They would also require a upkeep of food or they wouldn't spawn IF YOU WERE TO BUILD UPON THIS SUGGESTION: - the ability to spawn prebuilt towers and other defenses? so each point has 3 defense points and people can choose what to build on each points, so for an example you can build towers that will shoot arrows at the attackers, or barracks to buff and hire guards, or a house which will spawn in barracades, or even a small farm to generate or lower foods for the guards and therefore no two conquest points would be alike and therefore a new experiance everytime -guards would have a random personality trait? so to buff the guards for x amounts of time you can feed them potions, or gift them diamonds, or give them better equpiment

    Event 3 : "For Science!" With elections settled, the minds of The Daggerlands turn away from politics and towards their true love : the tinkering of technology. It's Worlds' Faire season in the city of Monas Roth, the greatest minds of the nation have gathered to demonstrate inventions, innovations, and discoveries. Even old Aldric Ironstride and his latest airship have arrived in time for the season's occasion. Come join in the merriment, browse the wonders of the Daggerlands, but be wary - for someone has come for more than just the science... This Event, like "The Reacting Ruins" is an instanced event that will be run on timeslots. UNLIKE the previous two events; the results of this event will be factored to determine the next part of the story. This will be done by tallying the results of each instance's participation. The following playtimes are available for this event: Saturday. April 22 : 8:30AM A'therys Time, 10AM A'therys Time, 9PM A'therys Time Sunday, April 23: 11 AM A'therys Time, 3 PM A'therys Time, 6 PM A'therys Time, 10 PM A'therys Time This event is a "tower defense" type mob event; in that you must defend specific locations or against a set number of waves. Be mindful of additional objectives that may be given along the way; for they may yield bonuses!!!

    Solution, meme on your private wall rather than cluttering the public forums. This isn't tumblr/reddit/4chan/etc. ((Or perhaps request a memes subforum)) I agree that staff could be a little more proactive about informing people of reasons, rather than being reactive. You give reasons when people are kicked/banned, same should go for posts. Just common courtesy and eliminates the guess-work and rumor-mill.

    Joke's on you guys, it's not Selukk we're wiping, it's Roreg. And we're not so much wiping it, as we are putting it under Vrovonic occupation. Now, for any loghecs reading this, you need not worry. Your new Vrovonic overlords will be merciful, and as long as you throw away your outragous reverence for that damp cave you call Dorrod's realm, and adopt Vrovona's teachings within 14 working days, you will be left relatively unharmed. Additionally, please note that any sort of organized or military resistance to the occupation will be taken most seriously and any conflicts will be resolved with the wiping out of whole regions of the jungle, starting with the most-populated ones. Signing off, Your friendly neightborhood General Secretary of the Occupational Government in Roreg Logh.

    My Boy! I need a word with ya. Hit me up on Skype. Now for the serious bit. When you posted this, what did you hope to achieve? Show the community that the server isn't the best shape, because we are all unaware of this issue? Did you maybe want to do the whole "Hey look I was the only dude online!" gag which has definitely not been overdone. Or maybe this was to point out that SKYFALL 1.0 has just been released and you want some mates to play this AWESOME new minigame with? Maybe if you didn't quite understand my sarcasm, I'll spell it out. This solves absolutely, categorically, nothing. It's not even worth anything from a humorous perspective. Grow up or offer some legitimate help. -Chiv

    Hey, everyone! I'm currently setting up a starter town, and a building in said town is currently being purposed as a "Hall of Nations"- an area for new players to explore all the different nations. While I would love to repopulate The Daggerlands, a good starter town must acknowledge that the server needs more than a single-nation operating starter town. Unbalance is no fun. The Hall of Nations will showcase each nation, and include their flag. Additionally, there is a flagpole for every nation outside the building. I am searching for at least five flag banners from each nation, and an additional six banners with the A'therys logo. I would greatly appreciate donations as I am showing off other nations than my home, but a small fee is acceptable. Thanks! Currently: Ar-Selukk: 1/5 Aloreh: 0/5 Ithero: 5/5 Roreg Logh: 0/5 The Daggerlands: 11/5 Vrovona: 5/5 A'therys Banner: 0/6

    I actually like this idea, what plugin as Jon said is up for discussion because we have towny and essentials already. I being someone who favours giving power to nation heads, believe that this would be very good; it would make little in the way for someone to just stand up and oppose a regime or a legitimate nation head. People could be prosecuted over nation laws, and I do think nations lack a legislative programme, Selukk being an exception but can still have national laws under the Regent. For example, Selukk's Temple Gov has banned the use of trading non-selukkite slaves since it ruins the internal slave economy of Selukk, if I was caught saying in ts i was doing the contrary, then I could be bought before Temple Government and tried. Ofc if I was in power I would use it to jail everyone who opposes my regimes.

    Yeah, came down to that 50/50 guess, I also used the original storyline/character background to assume that Ahlanna would use a scepter since she had some relation to the Mages College, and they would therefore be greatly concerned about her disappearance.
