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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Might need to dumb that down for me. I have no idea what you just said. xD

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 Evo Returns (Plugins and Player Data Included!)
      Hello everyone, new and old! 

      As you may or may not have heard, we have brought back a functional build of A'therys Evo onto the server. We've noticed that a lot of people have been wanting a taste of the A'therys experience and having a place in-game to relive some of your favourite memories will go a long way towards achieving that.
