In Eiskalt, hostilities between the Ixian
Knights and Misery Business continue, with profiteers and patriots alike
fighting for the future of this frozen nation. Meanwhile, unnoticed in
the conflict, an ancient power stirs.
On the southern coast of Corone, the traditional Gisela Open, a
tournament of warring armies, has begun anew. Register your regiment
and fight for glory, power, and fortune!
Rumblings of retribution are resounding throughout Raiaera, as the
wounds from the Corpse War against the necromancer Xem'zund slowly heal.
Elves and adventurers alike, all across the war ravaged nation, are
contemplating the lingering undead threat with blood in mind. Scholars
and magi of Beinost are readying for war anew, many of them turning
their research directly upon the corrupted life of the plagued lands
from their ghost-touched towers.
The staff is working hard to complete
mission boards and wiki articles for each region, as well as "At a
Glance" summaries of the regions. Pursuant to this, a revised map is in
production and nearing completion, so look forward to that!
Additionally, there will be two new regions soon, one old and returning,
the other never-before-seen outside of tournaments. I speak, of
course, of the Tular Plains, now the demon infested pit Haide, and the
xenophobic island nation of Lornius. Lornius will be a limited-access
region with experience bonuses for writing there, though the specific
qualifications for writing there are still in the planning stages. As
well, Lornius will be home to some unique modes of competitive writing,
with increased gold rewards and unusual rules.
