    Hello Atherys! Today I shall write a bit on how the 5 Governments will work in Horizons. As you will see below they all have their unique spins and will hopefully appeal to a broad spectrum of players. What all Governments will have in common are their rights and responsibilities, one of which will be the assignment of towns and the distribution of town plots. (Unlike previous iterations of A’therys towns will be measured in Square Blocks, rather than restricted to plots of 16 x 16. More to come on that in the upcoming Town Plugin Diary.) In addition to rewarding town plots for set achievements and checkpoints, the assigning of plots may also be used as a system of rewards at the nation head’s discretion. While there is a risk of abuse, Staff will naturally step in if abuse goes too far; in addition to player-based means for removal of a nation head they feel is not properly doing their job. The Government will also have access to a currency called Argents that the Nation earns mainly through Shattered-Land Conquest. They will be able to buy special items, including necessary blocks for Airships (this is still a WIP) that they can distribute. With a few more unnamed possibilities the Government will actually have means to project their power, instead of being only a means of roleplay. Below I talk about the different Nations and how their Government works in Lore and in Mechanic. Daidama Daidama is ruled by an Emperor which has absolute power. Thanks to our RP Plugin where it allows people to use nicknames, the elected Leader of Daidama will assume the role of this Emperor. They will, when being the Leader, act as this person, and if someone else becomes NH of Daidama they take over the same role. This does not prevent you from assigning your actual RP character a high ranking government position in case you want to RP as your normal character. Mechanic wise the NH will be elected by staff after reviewing applications (as we did in the end of Ascended). With the nickname switching it makes this easy and you don’t need to login on another account or have an NPC that is actually higher in the hierarchy than the player NH. (To compare to previous iterations; it would be as if we allowed the character Raviyna to be played by the player; rather than assigning them to Vizier each time) Dalkun-Tir The NH will be the Outrider, a person selected by a God to lead the Nation. Of course no one is perfect, not even the Gods and so if the Outrider turns out bad the people can call upon their God (Mechanic: Staff) and send him prayers and he will judge the Outrider, either get him to become better or to get rid of him and elect a new one. Now the whole prayer thing will be a simple mechanic where we as staff will collect books with complaints (or compliments) in the span of a week or so and if something substantial (several people complaining about the same thing, to prevent “I heard he said”) we will talk to the NH. If it’s not correctable, we will kick him out. New Nation Head applicants will be screened, and placed under a series of trials (physical and mental). Atvoria Atvoira is led by a council of the Guild representatives. This means the government has 12 player positions and 1 Staff (the Staff is only there to break ties. Nothing else). The person with the NH permissions will be the Guild Premier of the Law Guild, and is basically the only position that must be filled. The other seats will be filled by the respective guilds. Any player can pledge his allegiance to any guild and these members can then select their representative (think of guilds as political parties). Klinholdt Welcome to the biggest Government mess, ever. Approximately every 30 - 60 days, anyone who wants to become NH can challenge the current NH, they can raise an army and all of these armies will battle it out in the Capital. The last one standing becomes NH. We expect this to be a chaotic nation, so please be aware of this before choosing to join (of course you can always stay out of politics). Gennaian Isles There are eight kingdoms in the Isles; seven of them are ruled by a King/Queen (usually the mayor of that islands town). The eighth kingdom and capital, Falkynthos; is ruled by the High King, elected by the other Seven (they may submit any name, even a peasant if they so wish). Pretty straightforward. So this is it in its basic form. Each NH can of course establish government branches to share some of the responsibilities that the NH now has. Additionally, becoming NH will add that event to your personal timeline that will be displayed on your Forum profile (if you have linked it to your in-game account). And if nothing really bad happened it will become part of canon (in case of Daidama this will instead reflect the actions of the roleplay Mask, however your own character may still be noted as an important official during the timeline). Also good to know is that when we start all these positions will be initially filled by staff to make it easier. But we plan to get players into it as soon as possible afterwards.

    Nah not really. Today, it gives me no great pleasure to announce to you all that our fellow admin and lead developer, HaedHutner is stepping away from A'therys. He's been putting more time into A'therys than he has to offer and life has finally caught up to him in ways that he now needs to focus on himself. So join me and the rest of the staff in giving him thanks for all that he's done and coded for us. HOWEVER, this does not mean that we can stop here. Now more than ever, we need more people to write and code the plugins we've been developing for Horizons. If you want to join the team, know someone who might want to join, or something in between, then we'd be happy to have you/someone on the team. Also, Dannie needs a new friend to argue with and we suddenly have a new spot open for that. Feel free to DM anyone on the admin team if you're interested in applying. (If you were expecting some long winded post, go ask redninja to make one. He does the flowery, professional language.)

    Welcome to the A'therys resource pack development page. The A'therys resource pack started out as a medieval styled texture pack based on john smith for the A'therys server, later switching to use conquest as the foundation for the pack. Although the server has moved onto conquest reforged and is no longer using the pack, progress still continues to slowly march forward. Up until now, I haven't been releasing many packs or updates out to the community mostly because I was dissatisfied with my own additions to the pack after I took over from the previous developer. However, I have decided to change and start this thread to hopefully motivate myself to work more on it. Any thoughts and opinions are welcome, please report any problems with the pack, and give your support by showing what you've built using the pack. I will continue to update this post as more stuff is done. ~Chrisblox

    Hot damn. Not sure if I should brush away the cobwebs or just leave them be because in all honesty I'm not really going to come back. I will say though, A'therys has been an amazing experience for me and I'm glad I got the chance. It's a little late for an old soul like me though to pick up where I left off. Not sure what I'm doing, maybe I'll pop in every now and then. Who knows. <3

    Wow, decided to pop on here to take a look and see if it's still around. So much has changed, yet so many familiar names. It's all so confusing.
