New Maps, Quest, Skills and more

*** Please download and install game client version 1.1.1! ***
Some of the changes are unfortunately not backwards compatible - sorry :-8

Many big and small updates:

  • Darkness is now displayed in the windows game client!
  • Extended wrecked ship, now including two new quests. New monsters!
  • New fighting skill "Charged Strike" for the monk.
  • Stonegate sewers (work in progress) - also including new monsters.
  • Summons will now behave a lot better in terms of catching up with the player. They will even teleport back to the player when too far away. This makes summoning classes much more fun to play.
  • Many small balancing tweaks.

Previous Updates

New Maps and Quests

New maps and quests have been added:

  • The castle of Baron Zod now features a quest about an unfaithful servant, called Kraz. Additionally a quest to get "earth shield", a new woodlore protection skill.
  • In Stonegate there is one new general storyline quest and another one to get "fire viper 2". A new rare artifact allows to push the viper even to level 3. The caves northwest of Stonegate are now accessible.
  • Wrecked ship got some visual touch-up.

Along with a few balancing tweaks, the new quests and skills will boost the capabilities of the ranger class.

New Java-based Client for Linux and Mac OS

I have created a new java-based game client that runs on Linux, Mac OS and basically any operating system where a java runtime (JRE) can be installed!

Get the new client from the download page.

User Account System - Deprecates Old Player Files

Please Update your Game Client to 1.1.0!

Game clients prior to 1.1.0 don't work anymore, the update is mandatory.

There are now user accounts instead of individual characters!
The login procedure is much, much easier now.

This radical change required that all previous character profiles have been removed.
I can restore your old characters! Contact me in the forum please, if you want your old character back.

PvP Dueling and Wrecked Ship

PvP dueling is now possible in a special dueling arena that can be found in stonegate!

A new area has been added: The wrecked ship.
The wrecked ship isn't complete yet, but it's such a cool theme that I just wanted to insert it right away.

New Quests

Four new quests have been added: Two low-level ones, in the starting town (deeproot). Two high-level ones, at the woodchoppers' camp near stonegate.

Big World Expansion: Stonegate

It's finally here: Stonegate! The next big city after the starting town. Along with a number of big maps that join the separate paths through the myconid forest and the undead ruins.
Your personal apartment is now accessible from both stonegate and deeproot (starting town). Along with shops and inn, stonegate has the potential to become a new home for high level players.

A quest to get into the city. Two new monster types that will cause you lots of trouble. Don't expect reaching stonegate to be an easy feat. :-)

Maximum character level is now 18.

Many new items, including helmets (finally), an insanely powerful fire whip, countless new modifiers for equipment (e.g. resistance to mana drain is now available), stronger potions and accordingly adjusted monster drop lists (loot).

There is still plenty of work left to do for me as well:

  • The end-game balance is now somewhat out of whack. Monk, beastmaster and mutant need skill upgrades and generally some more buffs to be able to compete on a level with wizard, warrior and robot. I will address this with future updates.
  • There is little in terms of quests and story to be found in the new areas. I want to breathe much more life into the friendly NPCs/towns in general.

Personal Apartments

Store infinite amounts of loot in your very own personal apartment!

The apartment can be found in the starting town. It's the new building with the orange-red roof. What you drop and store in your apartment is permanently saved.

No longer do you need to throw away good items due to the carry weight limit. This will make collecting artifacts and treasures a lot more fun.
