I Greet you, People of Atherys!

 

I decided that today, while g the beautiful view outside my window, i shall update all of you about the progress of Atherys Horizons.

First, I want to make it clear that we all are still 100% committed to the project, in fact I just signed a server contract for a year (saving money, but i'm bound to the servers for at least that time) and as far as I can see and feel, the whole team is still with me! 

 

Our build team is making good progress with building the Gennaian Isles capital after which the others will follow shortly (you may have seen some of the screenshots taken in the capital. it looks breath taking. I even took a tour in VR in there).

 

Our Dev Team is working on finishing the AtherysCombat Plugin which took us a while to nail down how we want it to work (soooo many opinions. Really wasn't easy) but i think most of you will be happy with what we got (ofc not all, it will never be all :D) 

 

Some of us are in the process of designing and creating the dungeons which will be a big part of your Adventures, i saw some of the ideas and i very much like them. I even visited one and i'm sure you will enjoy it too. 

 

One of the big parts now is that we finished up our list of weapons and armors and their tiers. This is important in so far that i know need as many designers as possible to create skin-sets for these. This means that there will be different skins that you can find (and many more to buy in the store) to make your gear a bit more unique. For example, there will be nation specific textures for when you want to go to war in style! These ofc would be sets that can be found/made in game. 

I will post a specific topic about this later this week( so tomorrow or saturday) detailing the items and tiers and what is required of skin-sets. Hoping to find some more people helping making them. Incidentally you will also learn a bit more about what kind of weapons you will be able to use in Horizons (wont be just sword, axe and staff!).

 

In almost all other parts and features for this project we made progress but often in away that its really nothing to talk about besides saying, yeah we are progressing along well. As soon as another features is ready/finished i will make a special post talking about it, which i hope is soon! 

 

Now i shall return to my favorite Tavern and enjoy another glass of.. aehm... water!

All shall be well!

    • 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.
