So I 100% fell off the once a week updates, partly because we’ve hit a few stop-and-goes, I moved apartments and had no internet, and then got slammed with the big summer festival tech rush. BUT thankfully there’s a team behind me making sure ideas are put in and moving forward.
Kilnholdt nearly completed.
Will not be adding to the Wiki until closer to launch.
Daidama roughly 75% completed; undergoing large rewrite.
Atvoria roughly 50% completed.
Gennaian Isles and Dalkun-Tir still in notes & concept phases.
Shattered Lands in concept & reference phases.
Updates to Player Characters
Early in, I promised to find a better transition means between player characters and canon characters.
New system in the works.
No, I won’t be going LOTC crazy
PS: Highly disappointed their shit doesn’t even come close to the actual world of Lord of the Rings, which their name implies at a glance.
Right, player characters. New system to be implemented (unrelated to “My Timeline” which Sellt has mentioned) to streamline PC’s into the Wiki.
Working out system of checks & balances.
Also working out plans of attack for storyline events.
Goal : prevent the win or no goodies mentality
Better means of prize selection.
Possible point system based on factors of participation and individual achievement, rather than “my side won”.
C is for Contest!

Event 2 : Disappearances
In the port city of Virion Alesce, five heroes met by chance and exchanged stories over drinks before parting their separate ways. None chose to stay the night, as each had their own destinations and adventures to be had, but in the moonless night a sudden scream was heard. No blood to be found, no signs of struggle; whoever it was simply.... vanished.
This is not the first occurrence according to the locals, who rarely choose to venture into the wilderness and abandoned mines, but it is the first time such an incident has been brought to the attention of the Mage's Guild. With the recent activities involving planar breaches in Northwest Ithero; we need to properly investigate this disappearance.
Virion Alescce and its Warps are now open! Warps can be accessed from any Capital City for 100 yora.
Or you can sail to it at coordinates : 9480, 10900
According to witnesses, each hero at the pub drank something different, and they had either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 rounds of that drink. No hero had the same amount of drinks. Each hero was also seen carrying a different weapon. Your task for this puzzle is to identify the following :
What each of the five heroes' drink of choice was
How many drinks did they have (1, 2, 3, 4 or 5)
What weapon they carried.
There were Five heroes partaking in merriment that evening.
Theobald Whistwallow (Male) : An Alor noble known for traversing the world slaying all manner of "dragons". Although his tales may be bravado, his bravery and ability should not go underestimated!
Helghrian Toharus (Male) : The man who took two-dozen; modern politician and slayer of undead throughout the Laoner of Roreg Logh. Much like Theobald, he refuses to allow age to deter his adventures.
Ahlanna Jharov (Female) : A scholar of the Rubious Lantern and associate of the Arcane College, Ahlanna Jharov has bridged many gaps between the Vrovonic clans; earning entry to Northern Bravnikh territory and the sacred grounds of the Ghost Wall.
Yai'vasa yav-Hashirem (Female) : Treasure hunter, tomb robber, and gem trader; she has been deeply involved in Selukkite politics for the last thirty years. Although not a member of the courts of Qhul Rahav, her power and influence stretch well within the walls of the city.
Corrigan Broad (Male) : Alcoholic, collegiate dropout, yet one of the sharpest minds that sail the seas of A'therys. Seeing the world in his own way, the wily pirate has seen many an adventure over the past two decades.
Locals were on edge during the entire evening, as the heroes were far from non-threatening with their bragging and brandished weapons. One leaned upon a Scepter, one kept a hand constantly upon their Battle-Axe, another one had a loaded Crossbow that nearly fired into the dart-board in jest, one hero kept pointing out towards people of interest with a Longspear, and the last hero had a massive Broadsword strapped to their back.
