General Announcements

Current Events
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.

Major Announcements
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.

Player Content
A player-run Featured Quest is on the horizon! Learn more about the Dragon War here.

Several resident artists have seen increasing productivity in the past month. Check out the art from Luned, Otto, and Lye.
