Hello A'therys!

Yesterday we had the Sellt Chat where I introduced what will happen with A'therys and where we are going. In two words:

A'therys Horizons

Wallpaper4.png

 

Yes, we are working on a new A'therys, it wont just be another iteration with small changes, it will be basically a new game.

 

First, the bad things that will happen:

  • All player data will be wiped, everyone will start new. This means no towns, no money, no exp and nothing that was sold in the Store.

 

Now, the good things and why we have that wipe: 

Atherys will go modded. For what we want to do we can't stay with just plugins, but need to expand and going modded was the logical step. This also means a switch from spigot to sponge, which means our old plugins will not work anymore (no Towny and no Heroes). But don't fear, @HaedHutner is already working on our own custom town plugin (which incidentally allows us to have a town plugin that doesn't have a tonne of stuff that we do not need and also could possibly slow down the server!). Same will happen with the pvp plugin. Classes and skills will be entirely new, as will be the way you level.

Store bought items, including towns, will not be available anymore for real money. All these things you will need to play for in order to obtain them. We will have some things we will sell, however, they will be entirely cosmetic. 

Towns will be more restricted than it's now. You will need to fulfill some requisites to create a town (how many players join, resources etc). 

Titles will also not be buyable from the store. You will earn titles through playing which also gives a lot more meaning to a title than it is right now.

Map

One of the big mods we will have is ConquestReforged which will add over 6000 new blocks. Luckily, we got one of the best ConquestReforged map-makers to make us a custom map and from what i already saw it will be fantastic. Size wise it will be smaller, while the landmass will be about the same, (a lot of ocean has been remove). A big part of the map will be the Adventure Zone (Shattered Lands) and so the actual land where you can build your towns will be about half of what we have now. 

 

Wallpaper5.png

 

Nations

Another big thing: We are turning the globe and will move to another part of A'therys! You will be able to choose between 5 new nations and explore a sixth one that fell into ruins. The last one also will be the Adventure Zone with mobs, traps, dungeons, quests and an expanded Conquest System (for all the pvpers).

The 5 new nations:

Gennaian Islands: The Gennaian Islands are a collective of Kingdoms under a single national banner; akin to Ancient Greece.

Daidama: Daidama is a ‘paradise’ of walled cities; where crime is swept away by justice, and atonements are swiftly dealt out.

Dalkun-Tir: The lands of Dalkun-Tir  are lowland scrub and rocky steppes, inhabited by the spurned and exiled; hardened nomads who navigate the harsh landscape.

Atvoria: Once ruled by the god Nalageos, Atvoria is a land saturated with glamour due to the dragon Zahatmos’ tampering with fate. As such, the people are involved within a constant story, where superstitions and fables come to life.

Harugraun: Rugged terrain of mountains and forests; a land that pioneered gunpowder and rivaled only by the Daggerlands in ingenuity. It is a shame, therefore, that they happen to take five steps back every generation from sheer spite and strife.

More Information on the Nations will be forthcoming, including their buildstyles.

My (your) Story

We heard you and we want to give you more influence on the story of this world. As such, each player will get a profile page on the forum connected to the A'therys server. If you achieve something, (slaying the evil endboss, becoming Nationhead etc), you will get you an entry in your personal timeline and if appropriate in the Nations Timeline (Nationheads, Wars etc). You also will be able to add your own personal entries to your own timeline (only difference will be that the official stuff will have a "official" sign). Depending on all these things and our own ideas the world will also evolve. How far and in which direction, I can't say.

 

Wallpaper9.png

 

Release Date

We don't have a deadline. We don't want to do another Evo and actually take the needed time to implement everything we actually planned.

 

Wallpaper8.png

 

Further Information

I will resume my weekly diary where I will keep you all up to date. Additionally posts will be made to go into more details of what we are doing, what mods you can expect and what we are planning but didn't mention here (several things, but we need to be a bit further with it before it will be revealed).

Callout

If you are a coder, builder, artist, pr specialist etc. and you want to help. Contact me or use one of the forms (builders) to join the team! I can't promise your money but i can promise you to work on a fantastic game and the pride that will go with it :D

What about the town I just bought will I get something for that because I literally just bought $20 worth of plots

I'll keep a note of that purchase (I got the details on buycraft) and we can sort you out with one or multiple of the new cosmetics (which will be equal value) when Horizons launches. Don't panic! :)

Thanks Dannie, I'm super excited to see the new launch I've been impressed with how good A'therys got along with just plugins I can't tell you how many times I've thought what if it was modded xD

Yeah I'm excited too. As staff, not even we know what all the nations consist of. It's going to be a great new adventure!

Woooo, new version of A'therys (and conquest reforged has piles of money as an item).

I just have images of you wanting to open a bank in the middle of a desert now and a tumleweed rolling around. And then you are sitting at your chair counting your doe. lol.

Bold move, perhaps what this server needed. I'll be sure to pay a visit on the launch day.

Just wondering, say I wanted to keep my rp character from Evo, would I be able to have him still like, worship Dorrod and stuff, or like, do the new nations have no idea about the old ones? I'm just asking because I really like the character that I have layer out right now and I would like to keep it.

The old nations will remain on our wiki and I think there is reference in the new nations of the old, so I don't see why not. That's a @Xathas question tho.

I feel like with a new continent with new nations that everyone should just be rolling a new character.

My goal will be again to be the wealthiest person on A'therys as it was when Evo was announced, and V2... xD

Did I ever make my goal? No. But goals are still fun to have :D

Role play is a personal choice. If you feel like playing a magical unicorn born from elves and wearing a baseball cap, I doubt anyone would blink an eyelid.

I mean... transcendence of the soul? Or you possess a host body, considering many of us (rp wise) may very well end up as ghosts or revenants roaming the new lands. Just my thought though.

Note that I'm just throwing ideas out there.

I think that's the case with real life too. I sat on the top of my car washing it down in the street with a pirate hate on cos of the sun, and I think 10 people went past and didn't utter one word. Must say though, pirate hats > sun caps. Brilliant. Shield the eyes AND the neck.

How dare they!! Don't let them do that. You are a strong independent werewolf. Unlike our 'strong and stable' werewolves we have here in the UK

Oh I've been working on a new character concept for a while, it was meant for the current A'therys but I can tweak it. Not to mention I played Runescape for 10 years and I'm not afraid to grind xD

When you die, your soul remains (supposedly). It could be possible for it to be reused when someone is born again. There is the possibility that the newborn will be "you" and not "them".

In the case you're roaming as a ghost or revenant (spirit of revenge/vengeance), you could "possess" someone, taking control. It would kill them and make you a whole being again.

Hope that clarifies. :D

On a different note, I'm excited to find out what mods will be used. Odds are that many of us have way too much experience with them.

    • A'therys Build Team... Gennaian Sneek Peek!
      Hey guys! 

      I am conscious about releasing more sneak peeks of the build teams progress to the public to keep people interested! In the future you can look foward to seeing more sneak peeks on current build projects. Below you can find a picture of the main feature of Falkynthos, the Gennaian capital. As stated in the lore, this is the great Temple of Sjilea comissioned by Theoros in the Goddess' honour. 


      We knew when attempting Falkynthos and Gennaia that ancient Greek themed builds were going to feature prominently. However, we wanted to move it beyond its stereotype of pillars and great buildings and introduce a fantasy feature to the mix. In order to achieve just that, we decided to explore the idea of placing the temple of Sjilea upon a great cliff with a cascading waterfalls all around. "Those travellers who often sought comfort in the thought of paradise or heaven often allured their dreams to images of the Temple of Sjilea and its gardens, an area of outstanding natural beauty." - Some lore person I just made up.

       

      We need you!

      I want to take this chance to thank everyone on the build team who has assisted in the project so far, though there is plenty still left to do. This moves me to my next point, we need you! Have you ever wanted to try your hand at building? Join with a team that encourages self-value and respect for one another? Amongst our current builders, we have an accolade of creative vision and an ambition to deliver for what the community expects of us. As such we recruit builders who are knowledgeable of Conquest Reforged, and though we may not be the best, we drive ourselves to deliver and not compromise quality with a bespoke building structure. Whether you're a new or existing community member, I encourage you to apply today!

    • Good day A'therians! Today I come with fantastic news. 

      As you all know, the years of A'therys have seen some impressive flags; From the glorious Vrovonic Sun to the randomness of egg-plant and duck flags.

      This month, we challenge your artistic talents and ideals to suggest national flags for each of the five new nations!

       

      **** What We're Looking For ****

      Please submit the following for your entry to be considered:

      * Nation : The most important thing to know; we obviously can't judge criteria unless you tell us which nation you're submitting for.

      * Flag Design : What is your intended design for the flag; this can include the emblem, color scheme, and even how it is carried (Is it a pennant, a battle standard, or does the flag have a unique shape to it?)

      * In-Game Appearance : Please include a photo of an in-game appearance of your flag. As Horizons will be using Conquest, please send a photo of your flag In-Game.

      * What Your Flag Represents :  Every flag's symbols mean something. For example; the United States has 50 stars representing the 50 states; and 13 stripes to represent the original 13 colonies.

      * ( Optional ) Artistic Render : Do you have artistic talent, or know an artist who's willing to help you out? Feel free to shoot along an out-of-game artistic render!

      * ( Optional ) Bribe the Judges : We accept Cash, Check, Gold, Bitcoins, and your parents' credit cards  
                              *  DISCLAIMER : This last one is a joke...

       
      You may submit entries until December 31st, 2017.
      Limit 1 Flag Entry per person, per nation (You can submit 1 flag for all 5 nations , but not 5 flags for 1 nation)
      Winners will be announced January 14th, 2018!

    • Looking for Real Estate? (Town Info Post)
      Are you looking to buy a prime piece of property this side of the Stormwall?

      Well have I got a deal for you!

      Today we have a special post for you as a small update, which will hopefully provide some insight into the functioning of towns in Horizons. As you know, towns are an important aspect of the server experience. They provide us with shelter, community, and inspire us to build and immerse ourselves in the map. However, some changes are important to know for the release of Horizons.

      Towns

       

      - Towns will no longer be purchasable with real money: all towns will be available within the game using in-game currency.

      - We will no longer be using Towny; a custom plugin is being developed for our specific needs.

      - There will be a minimum player requirement to start a town. No longer will one or two person towns be allowed to set up – our preliminary go-to number has been 10 people, but this may change (however it will not change drastically, so be prepared.) Without this minimum your purchase will be rejected by your nation head.

      - Each town will be required to pay a periodic upkeep through in-game currency. This will automatically be charged to your town bank; nonpayment will result in penalties up to eventual removal of your town. The upkeep will require that minimum of people to meet – extra hands will lighten the burden for you. Maintaining an active player-base will therefore be crucial to the survival of your town. We are aware that this number is high – it is meant to be. You may need to reach out to players you have not traditionally played with to meet the requirements. With this, new players will be valued as potential contributors to the towns upkeep and be welcomed everywhere.

      - Towns who keep their PvP status on (more on this later*) will be granted special privilege – their upkeep rates will be lower, allowing for less work to be spent mining and trading, and more time slaying and looting. This may not seem like much of a benefit at first, but players will quickly see the value in having to pay less tax. There will be more information on this process at a later date.

      - To facilitate players without a town, capitals will be livable – Considered a starter town, the nation head will be tasked with overseeing the running of their nation hub. In it you will be given opportunity for room and board in case you are unable to join a player-ran town. Your lodgings may not be as luxurious as if you were in a player ran town though.

       

      More information will be released later, and all above is subject to change! This is the working explanation for the town mechanic – it may be tweaked, however the main points are relatively safe to assume as true unless stated otherwise.
