    Sellt's Diary 10/24/2018

    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.
  2. Hi there! So, yeah meeting notes won't be publishes for the reasons head mentioned. In the end it would do more harm than help. But i get where you are coming from with updating the Community. The main problem is that for example we work on some bigger things at the moment that take a lot of time and you can't really give updates on that without sounding the same every time. Like for example building the capital. For sure i can tell you each week how many buildings were added, but in the end it would be a wholly underwhelming post. Right now we are in that part of development where, while still lots of work is done, its not really much one can talk about without sounding repetitive (more work has been done on the plugins, the capitals are getting build etc. etc.). And yes, it goes slower than we all would wish, mostly a question of manpower to be honest. All that said, i will start posting diary's again biweekly, even if sometimes they may lack substance and be a little bit repetitive (but i will try to minimize that as much as possible). Thanks for you interest and input

    Hello Atherys! Finally a new entry into the diary! So yes we are not dead Actually we are still making good progress towards getting this server finished. One of the main plugins is now complete and we actually will showcase it soon (more about this later). Our build team is working hard on the capitals and our lore team is pumping out stories and descriptions of our world. Even our patreon is useful! At this point I want to say THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH to all patreons. You make this so much easier for us! The major plugin that’s done is the Quest plugin, the first of its kind done for sponge! And it’s fantastic, we tried to find things it cannot do and failed miserably (or our imagination wasn’t the best in that meeting). With that done we have now an additional team that is working hard and that’s the Quest Team, not only are they coming up with ideas and Quest layouts, they also will write them in JavaScript. So they too will have a lot do to. Here I would like to remark that we still are looking for more coders. That and builders are right now the biggest bottlenecks. So if you are interested send us an application! This Saturday (the 8th of Sept, at 22:30 UTC) we will be part of the sponge anniversary livestream event. On that event we will showcase the first capital and the quest plugin. So join the stream and enjoy! For our patreons we actually will have something a bit more special, but they will be informed via the patreon discord channel (so look out for that too). While map wise we were done with the terrain etc. We had one major thing missing and that was large plants and assets (trees, rocks and such). This has now been rectified and you can expect to see a lot more landscape shots. There I suggest to either (if you are one) check the patreon channel or to keep an eye on our twitter feed. I know this is just a small update but I did want to tell you that we still have a lot of people working on this fantastic project. And more will come soon! See you beyond the Horizon! Sellt

    About the Capitals. These will actually be the newbie towns. Meaning players will start there, will get "trained" in atherys and will live there for a while until they move to a player controlled town. That alone should already give the Capitals more live. If you mean empty buildings with hollowed out shells, i can tell you that the build team is filling them all up with interior designs. From shops to homes to warehouses, bathhouses, taverns, schools, government buildings, all that a city needs to survive My map making process involved WorldMachine and now working with Worldpainter to do some detail work and add custom terrain palettes. So a lot is from a generator but its a directed generator that did what i wanted + some detail work by hand. Honestly, when i started on the map myself it was mostly out of necessity, but in a short time i became really exited about it and its a ton of fun to do this and i cannot wait to see player interact with this environment and hopefully find joy in it too But the whole project makes almost every day better for me, to know that i can work with such dedicated and wonderful people on what is basically a dream project for me (i guess there are a lot of people who dream about making their own game, so i see myself as blessed that i got this chance). Head is working hard o nthe pvp plugin, and we will have a ton of mechanics to make it fun for PVPers and hopefully to lessen the divide between pvpers and non-pvpers. From what we will implement you will have a lot more chance to engage in PvP than ever before in Atherys.

    Hello A'therys! It has been some time since we've updated you on what has been going on in the development of A'therys. Fear not, that doesn't mean that we've slowed down - it means the opposite. A number of things have been done these past few weeks from coding to building. Our custom quest plugin is being developed and will offer us some fun opportunities to let you interact with the world and learn about the new nations. Speaking of new nations, work on the capitals continues with Seten-Nan, capital of the harsh and desolate Dalkun-Tir. Our Lore Team is also still working on some of the finer details of the nations, and as such if you are interested in forming parts of the nation of your choice, maybe hit the lore team up in discord and start a friendly talk! Maybe your ideas will end up in the game! Additionally I thought maybe I should write a bit about what I personally was working on and what will give you a bit more insight into the nations, the map and what kind of terrain you may expect to find. You probably already know that the Gennaian Isles are, surprise, Islands. Imagine Mediterranean islands and you got a pretty good picture of them. Further to the east one will find Daidama, with an icy north, stony highlands and further down jungles and a region inspired by the Tianzi Mountains of China. South of Daidama we get to a dryer region, Dalkun-Tir. A nation filled with Savanna, Mesa land (inspired by Monument Valley), Canyon and a smaller Desert (far smaller than Ar-Selukk’s Desert). Both Nations, Daidama and Dalkun-Tir share the same river (which also connects the capitals) and which will be around 6.5km long. So look forward to some epic boat races! Even further down we find Atvoria, a land shaped by magical stories. The epitome of the default fantasy land we all know from somewhere. Included are a swamp like region, mountains, large grassy plains, sharp rock formations and even a mushroom forest with flying rocks. A bit apart from these nations to the south west we get Kilnholdt. While parts of it are inspired by Scotland we also get a huge terraced Mountain region on the main island that, in my opinion at least, looks stunning. Coming from the lowlands to the road up to the capital will be a wonderful sight. Additionally the cave system has been slightly changed from evo to get a more epic feeling, deeper caves, some bigger ones that would be big enough to hold w whole town and even underground rivers. If you follow me on twitter you may see one or the other region in WIP pictures I sometimes post ;) https://twitter.com/Selltos Today we also have a special request for you. A'therys Horizons has always been a passion project for us, and our team is small but dedicated. The size of our team means that while we are working away regularly, we rely on time voluntarily donated by our contributors. During this time, we have certain upkeep costs that we will always pay to keep the servers running and our website up. We've identified a few ways where additional funds could help alleviate those costs and allow us to divert resources to getting Horizons completed faster. Horizons will be completed, with or without donations, but contributing to our upkeep will help speed things up. If you are interested in helping us out, we have started up a Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/atherys/overview And if you think you can build and want to help us in that regard please follow this link and join our great build team! https://atherys.typeform.com/to/kVygUS We hope to see you around! Keep an eye on the website and discord for future updates! "Kilden glory! -- No matter the cost!" - Kilden War Cry

    Hello Atherys! Time for a new Sellt Diary Entry. Much has changed since the last entry and as you know (if not go and check it out right away) we now have a survival server running. Don’t worry, we are still working on Horizons and no resources have been diverted, the survival is just something we work on when we can’t work on Horizons. But this also means we are in the process of adding additional features to the survival server to give you more to do and maybe make a few things easier. A more detailed changelog will come to the forum as soon as Dannie has fixed the last issues with a new feature (which probably will make a lot of people happy!) All in all I hope you enjoy the experience and get to know the conquest reforged mod! Horizon wise we are still making progress at a steady level, more code has been written, more stuff has been build and things have been designed. Yeah its not very descriptive but that’s sadly the nature of it at the moment. All I can say that its going and we are still fully invested in this project. Maybe you will see some of the features popping up at some point when we need to stress test them 😊 We are still looking for artists to create skin packs for weapons and armor. So if you good at this and have some spare time, now you know what you can do to help! -> Further for the people inclined to RP, if you not already have check out this post: This is still under development and there maybe some changes how it works out in the end, but it should give you a basic on how you can become canon and part of the lore of Atherys! Maybe a year into the game your character is actually a big hero listed in canon, wouldn’t that be fantastic? Or maybe even a villain, guessing some of you would prefer that Because I was trout fishing yesterday I will present you my favorite recipe for trout: What you need: 2 trouts Olive Oil Lemon parsley, dill or you favorite herbs salt and pepper In my case I have 2 fresh trouts that I cleaned out. You probably can buy them this way in the store too. While preparing the trouts, heat up the oven to 400° F and get two thick aluminium foils (big enough to wrap the fish in it). Place the trouts, skin side down, on the foil and oil them lightly with olive oil. Season the fish with salt and pepper, fill the fish with parsley, dill (or what herbs you like) and lemon slices. Fold up the aluminium to make a nice package. Bake the fish for 10-15 minutes, the fish should pull apart easily with a fork. When serving pour the juice in the foil over the fishes. And enjoy!

    And the polling and collecting of ideas happened in the last few month of atherys ascended. All it would do now would make it more complicated and messy. But yeah don't worry, i had a lot of talks in the past with the player base in friday evening chats from where many of the stuff for horizons comes from.

    Sus

    Nothing is sus. All is fine We are all hard at work for this. It's just not easy to report on basically percentage progress. On a side note for these reading here: we actually are testing plugin and mod compatibility at the moment (having fun flying around in airships )
  10. Hi Everyone, Today, as promised we talk about armor and weapons and what we want to do with them skin wise. So first an overview of the tiers and materials: Armor Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Light Hide Leather Aramid Medium Chainmail Scale Lamellar Heavy Plate Crystaline Argentate Weapons List of the Weapons: Dagger Sword Axe Mace Polarm Staff Throwing Weapons (axes, knifes etc) Crossbow Bow All Weapons have the following tiers: Tier 1: Wood Tier 1.5: Bronze Tier 2: Iron Tier 2.5: Steel Tier 3: Crystaline Tier 3.5: Argentate Requirements for making skin packs We need skin packs that include all armor but not technically all weapons. For weapons you can combine tier 1 and 1.5, 2 and 2.5, 3 and 3.5 into each one skin for the pack (of course if you want to differentiate even the half levels you are welcome to it. That means a normal skin pack has skins for the following: Each Armor type, in total 9 Each half weapon level type, in total 27 (if you want to make unique ones for the full levels too: 54) Fun / RP packs can include only skins for basic armor/Weapons. Clothing for jobs, or costumes (Halloween). Also, a sword doesn't need to look like a normal sword. It only needs to use the same damage type (example: it can look like a Katana, rapier, etc. all using slashing damage). The same goes for the other weapon types. Some packs don't even need to entirely adhere to the listed material, for example a "nature" pack can have a bone-sword with inlaid diamonds as the tier 3.5 weapon. Which packs do we absolutely need: A default one for all types of weapons included. One pack for each nation (national armor and weapons) besides these, we take all (that look somewhat good) and if fitting will be in game earn-able or via the store. You can also make, for example, an RP pack, where armor looks like the clothing of different jobs and the weapons like their jobs tools. I hope this is clear, if not please post your questions here (not pm or discord) so others will see the answers too. Thank you! - Sellt
  11. 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! -Sellt
  12. Hello Atherys! Man, after weeks and weeks of just working on what we already told you i thought its time to give you a small update. Coding is still underway, further along than we ever where. We got the combat system sorted out and its now put into code. Got more artists on board for lore and items. We now use the main server as our development server where head, dannie, dev members etc are working as much as they can to finish all. Now the most important thing for this diary, sadly, through some time issues with the map and no work for our builders we lost a lot of them. But now we are at a point where we actually need builders to work on national buildings. So if you can build please apply and we can put you to work immediately! Build Team Application: https://atherys.typeform.com/to/kVygUS What you would work on: And a sneak peak at what follows: So yeah, work is going full on!
  13. Hello Atherys! A little Diary from me today, hopefully I can tell you guys a lot more next week or the one after. Website I want to remind you all that at the end of the Month the Forum will get wiped so we can switch to the new Nations setup. This will also solve another issue we have; the forum takes up way too much space (years of posts and pictures). So make sure you save what you want to keep and prepare to fill up the new Forum! We already added the first new thing to the website: https://atherys.com/forum/gallery/ End of Atherys Ascended So, soon we will take down the Server to enter the next development stage off Horizons. For that we wonder if you would join us for a final purge event + TS party! Saying goodbye to a good time and getting ready to say hello to the next. Weapons and Armor We are now detailing what kind of new Ores and Ingredients can be found In the shattered lands. With these you will be able to craft he highest tiers of Weapons and Armor. We are also finalizing the list of weapon types we will have (way more than just a sword, an axe and a staff!). We also will create additional textures (skin) or all of them. Some can be found in game, many others will be sold via the shop. Plugins & Mods Still work to do there, but head is making progress working on the combat plugin at the moment. I still work on the mount mod (soon we will know who won the contest! Hope not too complicate to make ). Build Team As you can see on the Forum, we are looking for more Builders. So if you think you are a good one fill out an application! Twitter I you want to keep up with the newest Atherys news follow us on twitter: https://twitter.com/AtherysHorizons Hurricane And as the last part of the Diary I want to ask you to pray and have your thoughts with all the islands and Florida and hope that the Hurricane will not hit to hard. If you are in the area or have people there, I wish you good luck and hope you stay safe. -Sellt

    Your second idea. We actually doing something similar. Instead of towns with this we will have Nation Outposts than can be raided for loot and "points" (fame, reputation... still looking for the right word. You will be able to buy unique stuff with this) that you then steal from that nation to add to yours. In my imagination i see a troops attacking via foot and Airships coming in from above to raid such an outpost.

    Sellt’s Diary 08/15/2017

    Yes there is a PVP system in place. I just didn't talk about it in this diary because not much has changed there. I talked about it in the earlier diaries and in the Horizons Announcement post (Basically the 6th nation, shattered lands, will be a pvp zone with conquest, raids, quests, dungeons, high end materials (so people need to go there and need to be prepared to fight)) Not as it was. Guilds will be a player thing. If you want to Start a Guild then just do it. Organize etc. But it won't be its own little nation anymore.
