Title: Year end events at Alter Aeon
Post by: Dentin on December 13, 2011, 05:19:34 pm
I'd like to let everyone know about the year-end celebration we have planned for this year.  Starting on the 21st of December and going through new years eve, you can look forward to the following:

- The release of a new low level area near Indira. As part of our ongoing efforts to give level 8-12 players more quests and areas to explore, we'll be opening a brand new area north of the Old Indira Forest on the island of Kordan.

- A major update to the troll caves on Archais.  Originally created over 15 years ago, the troll caves were recently taken offline and given a major makeover. We'll be officially opening the updated area, which should now be suitable for levels 24-30.

- The release of a new high level stone giant area west of Finspang.  This area, created by the original builder of the Undead City of Jo'Kerin, shows a different side of stone giants. If you're only familiar with the giants that reside in the Ash Mountains, you'll be surprised.

- An object creation contest, open to everyone (this is currently running and submissions will close on Dec 23rd, see SF's post)

- Daily gifts will be given out to everyone who logs in!

- Several different minor contests and activities similar to the famous Halloween Pumpkin Cannon

We'll also be running sales on various credit purchases in game if you're into that sort of thing.

I'll post a more detailed schedule closer to the 21st. We hope to see you there!

Title: Re: Year end events - Dec 21 Update
Post by: Dentin on December 21, 2011, 04:30:38 pm
We're starting things off with a bang today by re-opening the troll caverns in the dark forest on Archais.  This update to the original area adds two more levels of caves, a number of new monsters, fame, equipment, and a quest. The caves are suitable for players in the level 25-30 range.

Other events that are planned:

- On the 25th, chrismas day, we will be opening Scribe's new stone giant area west of Finspang on the mainland.  This is a high level area and it puts a very different spin on stone giants than you might be expecting.

- On the 28th, we'll be opening a brand new area north of the Old Indira Forest on the island of Kordan.  This level 10-14 area is intended to give low level players on Kordan a safe place to explore, and possibly defeat the mole king while they're at it.

- Up to the 23rd, Shadowfax is running an object creation contest that is open to everyone.  Check board 8 for details.

- Several different minor contests and activities similar to the famous Halloween Pumpkin Cannon, schedule TBA.

We'll also be running sales on various credit purchases in game if you're into that sort of thing.

Finally, all players who log in from now until the end of the year will get a daily thank you gift from the admin, including experience, practices, and sometimes credits.  Thanks to everyone for playing!
