  1. Much though I'm sad to see you go, your time has come, as it did for me those years back. The world turns and calls us elsewhere, that's just how life works. I still remember the piece that introduced you to me, blending Fendelian ramblings with stilted Welsh; it floored me, inspired me, made me glad to see that someone had taken my world and run with it in a way I'd always hoped for. You didn't just use it, you cared for it. You wrote with a voice that was borrowed and yet all your own. When my time came, I could think of no better person to carry the torch, and now I know of no one at all. I
  2. In little over a month, I'll mark the fifth anniversary of a harebrained scheme which saw the creation of this server and its community. If you'd told me then that all of this would've come from a university classroom idea for the replacement of then laid-low Shadows of Gazamo, I would've been thoroughly amused. If you'd said I'd spend five years alongside it, I would've probably laughed at you. But here we are. A'therys has become more than just a silly idea, more than I certainly could've imagined when I was some random guy trying to convince Vorske to throw common sense out the door and fun
  3. DAMN YOU OA!!!!
    I saw a forum alert and was like "OMG; OA POSTED!!! NEW LORE INFO!!!"

      I know, I know. Another project to get through first. Also, I did get a job! But it's with a military contractor so now I gotta worry about background checks and paperwork and what-all. I can totally promise, however, that sooner rather than later now I'll have a good schedule! I can plan things! And I'll have good internet~ So once I've moved, I'll be starting Lore Corners again, and I'll be writing again. Which isn't to say I haven't been writing, but it's been in fits and starts, and only stories, not articles. Like I said though, for real, it's coming soon. Hopefully very soon. :D

      Oh and also, the sooner I hit ~500 replies on that survey, the sooner I'll be free to go back to this as well. So spread that around, I know you know people Xathas. :P

  4. With luck, I may soon be gainfully employed. Project Triple-A suspended during the interview process (also I'm conveniently sick), but I think you'll like what I come back with! There's a schedule and everything.

      Pwease be a summer rime.. Pweety pwease?

      Look forward to it, good luck with your interview's :)

      @Dan The Derp
      Er..... "a summer rime" is abit of an odd way to phrase it. Since Rime is an accumulation of granular ice tufts ((hence why it was used as the name because the villain was ice-based... and because it's a pun of summertime))

      But agreed on the matter of "let's have a fun summer event!" 

  5. "Where's he been? What's he up to? Didn't he say he was gonna come back like two months ago!?" Patience. I'm... up to something.

    1. Swiggle


      Is it more school? It's more school isn't it, you've already finished your PhD

    2. OccidentalAnvil


      Not school for me, no. Something else, something fun for you all. Stories.

  6. I've been silent for a while. Too long. Expect something from me soon, not SoonTM.

  7. I'm about to send the wiki officially live. It is still "today" by my timezone, so it only took four more days than initially announced. Good thing I never did it through official channels, or something. Those posts and whatnot will come tomorrow after I've slept a bit, so be on the lookout for them if you're into that sort of thing. Mostly it's a "here's what's gone live" announcement post and a Changelog I intend to keep fairly accurately. Anvil out, hope you enjoy. We'll talk tomorrow.

  8. Could've released today, but decided that every nation needed a Cities category since I've been promising that for a while. And I'm not going to launch without Ar-Selukk having its cities written about too, at least briefly. Sadly, if sleep is for the weak, I'm as feeble as they come. See you guys tomorrow. #159

      Do you need a list of our cities?

    3. Rynelf


      The cities aren't actually from in game... :(

  9. Unforeseen complication: taking good pictures in Minecraft for the front page of the Official Wiki is a tedious pain. You'll see what I mean when it launches tomorrow, the 2nd. Sorry folks.

      Job interview came up, had to prepare / go to that today. Finishing up tonight.

    3. Rynelf


      So it'll be out tonight? 

    4. OccidentalAnvil


      No, tomorrow. Gotta finish up getting the last three nations transferred over, everything else is done.

  10. Barring unforeseen complications, the official wiki is going live on the 1st. More information to follow on that day.

  12. Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it, and a Happy New Year as well. I'll see you all after the break!

  13. Introduction So you want to write some Community Lore, do you? Well excellent! It's a great way to get involved in A'therys, and it can be a lot of fun too. But before you get started, there's a couple things to go over. We'll start at the beginning - what is it? How do you do it? Why should you? After having cleared that, we'll talk about what constitutes a good piece, the process for actually getting it posted, and of course the actual rules and regulations surrounding the whole thing. Yes, there are rules; of course you can't just go and write about absolutely anything you want. Thi
