[World] Wiki Updates & Roll-out: Spellbreaking, Imperia, Lamian Empire (Arakmat)
Jun 07, 2016 - 12:49 PM - by Nimh
Good afternoon!

A quick post, since I have to be to work in a half an hour, but a few new articles have rolled out over the past two weeks, some of which you may have noticed...or not!

Recently updated with the following changes:
- Moved Dissolution to level 4, also made it only capable of hard dispelling spells of two levels below.
- Added Soulstone Infection as a drawback to using some of the more overt antimagic spells
- Removed Arcane Impotency, as it was irrelevant with the changes to arcana.

We have a big roll out today of the long-awaited Ikonomancy article! Should you have any questions or concerns related to Ikos, please post those questions here. We understand that it is different from what it previously was so rather than fumble around with it yourself, you encourage you to pose questions.

[Site] Appearance & Navigation Updates
May 06, 2016 - 12:28 AM - by Jacob
Hi folks!

This is a quick update post to bring you up to speed on some changes made on the forum over the past couple days to enhance site appearance and navigation.

Everwood Style Unlocked

The Everwood style, a forum theme previously made exclusively available to subscribers and staff as a premium feature, is now available for all users. You can select this style using the Quick Style Chooser, the dropdown menu at the bottom left hand corner of any page.

Everwood is a less "imperial" and more "natural" looking style than the Aelyria default. For some users it is easier on the eyes and I have unlocked it for everybody as a quality of life improvement.

Navigation Updates

Thanks to input from the community and a restructuring spearheaded by Nimh, the navigation bars for the site have been updated with more current and salient... [Read More]
