  1. Hear ye, hear ye! This weekend only! A once in a lifetime experience, only here on A'therys! Hello everybody, new and old. Today we have a very special announcement to make - one which offers you the unique chance to get a sneak preview of one of Horizon's upcoming cities! This weekend only, from (SELLT PUT IN A DATE HERE) to (SELLT PUT IN ANOTHER DATE HERE OTHERWISE WE WILL LOOK SILLY), we will be opening up the capital city of Seten-Nan on our servers for you to explore. Feel free to log in and walk around, take in the sights and sounds of the nation of Dalkun-Tir, and experience life as a caravan-dweller. From the towering monumentality of the bazaar to the roaring shoreline of the river, Seten-Nan will surely thrill and excite you! In addition to seeing what the build team is capable of, we will be testing out our custom built Quests plugin on you, our ever-faithful guinea pigs. Talk to the interesting citizens of the city and see what you can do for them! We will be opening up feedback forms (basically this topic) for you to provide us with bug reports and hopefully some praise too. Once this event ends, we will be deporting all stragglers and development will will resume behind closed doors, like Willy Wonka's factory after a health inspection. Until then though, we strongly recommend you come check it out. -Sellt
  2. Hello Atherys! Some good news for today. Atherys will join the State of Sponge today and present some new parts of Horizon! A bit more information and links to twich you can find here: https://forums.spongepowered.org/t/state-of-sponge-xviii-spongies-5th-birthday-bash/33519 See you there! Sellt
  3. 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.
  4. 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
