Rise of Kings Announcement

February 2015

It has been a long time, since our last update. So I bring to you, an announcement to about what has been going on lately in the Rise of Kings server, and community. There is a lot to catch up on, and a lot of plans for the future!

Profession Plugin & more

We have in the past 2 weeks, been able to dig up some old ideas for a profession plugin that was really solid. Together with Kirky, I have been editing with feedback from several members. It is now ready, and we have been searching for a developer, that had the experience with both coding, and RP servers. Now we have finally found one and his name is Noah! Noah has agreed, to make our own custom Profession and Character card plugin, for the mere cost of 300$! This is a really good deal, and we have now made a deal with Noah. However, we have in shortage of funds for this project. Because of this, I call out to all our loyal, and faithful members, to help with the funding of these plugins! Any small amount of money, is greatly appreciated, and will be put to good use! If we even suceed at getting a larger amount then needed, we will be using those, for the next small batch of plugins we have in mind, to all in all make the time on Rise of Kings, more fluid, and enjoyable!

Staff teams

Over the past three months, we have been trying to improve our staff as much as possible! New staff teams has been added, such as the Media Crew now being official, Development Team and several positions inside of the existing ones. The Forum Moderators, have now also been back into use, and are working to update our forums a bit, and throw out the old stuff that is misleading and outdating. We are still, constantly improving the Teams, to create an overall better, and more fluid experience for all of our community! Are you interested in perhaps joining one of our teams? Head over to the forums and look over what is what, and then make an application! Applications has also returned to the traditional system of being on the forums.

Magic

Together with the several members of the community, have we been creating, and writing out a new magic system for RoK. This magic, is now ready for release, and has already been introduced in RP. Over the next weeks, a storyline regarding Magic, will start to explain what it is about. Hopefully, our players will be enjoying this, and if anybody has any feedback regarding to magic, do not hesitate to bring it up on the forums!

Donations

There has recently been made tweaks to some of the current donations. Some has been removed, others edited. We are also in the works of new donation options! Recently, we have added in The Lottery, which allows people to donate a certain amount each month, to win some special reward like another Game, a customized event and a lot more! definitely check this! Also, if anyone has any suggestions for new donation rewards, please feel free to send Either Carl or I a private message giving the details of such.

Winterbane

Winterbane has now officially been closed down again! This is due to the Recently added World-Event Storyline (More info further down). During it's state, it will be heavily updated and re-done, to fit with RP happenings, and give it a nice touch up. When it opens up again, it will have several fleshed out dungeons, npc camps and much more interesting things, for our playerbase to explore and fight! Our Media Crew will be creating a trailer when it's close to release, and we will have several sneakpeeks given out, so that people can see what we are working on!

New Media

We have recently, recruited Riakai, who will from now on, manage our Media stuff like, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. from now on, these will be updated regularly with news, pictures, sneak peeks and other little nifty stuff! So stay tuned, and go over and like those pages!

Current RP Events

The threat from another plane

Recently, a portal to the Grimal Plane, was opened by several cultists. From this portal, Ann Pendle, recently changed to Vervaine, the wife of Grimal'Tuz, stepped out of. Vervaine, has arrived on Elysion, to cause carnage, and take it over. It is up to the players, to stop her and take back Winterbane! If they don't suceed, what will be the fate of the world as they know it?

November Update

carlnorm Admin posted Nov 26, 14
Hey guys been quite a while since we've posted an update and there is alot to catch up on aswell as a number of new interesting features to be coming in the near future.

Changing time

First up is a large change after lots of feedback from the community we have decided to change away from the current time system (2 Weeks IRL = 1 Year) to allow further more realistic progression of characters and just generally make it much easier to understand for new players.

Starting from now we are changing the system so that 1 month IRL is equal to one year in Elysion.

We hope to make use of a time plugin however we need to come up with a set system for the names of days, months and years any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

Physical Currency
`
We have removed access to the /pay command and now opted for a mix of both physical and virtual based currency to help with the realism of the server and its current trading and thievery systems.

Currently there are coins for 100 Auras, 50 Auras, 10 Auras, 5 Auras, and 1 Auras.

Placed at spawn and in each of the houses there are NPC's named "Banker." by right clicking on the NPC you shall bring up a trade window that can be used to convert back a forth between the physical and virtual currency.

Professions


After getting rid of our Professions plugin we’ve decided to put it back into effect on the server. We Have looked into many different professions plugins, but so far none of them has held any promise for the system we’re trying to switch into, which is a Tier based one where exp and grinding won’t be a problem.

For now, we’re going to focus on making the best out of our current Professions plugin by being more diligent about promoting more trainers for each profession and making sure to replace teachers that are inactive, or refuse to teach.



Trade Plugin

The Trade plugin has been implemented for quite some time now though I have yet to make it announced and really compliments the physical currency system as I have heard alot of worry about having other players pick up the coins.

By typing /trade playername you send an offer to trade to the specified player once they have accepted a new trade window will be opened. Each player must place their chosen items to trade and press accept when they believe the trade is correct and the items shall be swapped.


Voting

Voting rewards have finally been fixed with each vote granting 50 Auras. Voting plays a highly important part in the growth of the server with higher amounts of votes we gain many new players.

Magic

The new magic lore has been being tweaked over the past month and is nearly finished with a few players around now already having access to it. As magic role play occurs it will be tweaked and those involved in its use will see separate story lines to take part in alongside the three main storylines that are planned to come out within the next few months.

Alchemy

Lzztopz has been working on a new and improved alchemy system that should be coming about within the next few weeks. The lore shall involve a much more logical and role play based system to its predecessors split into three paths Herbalism, Alchemistry and Medicinal. The WIP version can be found here http://www.mc-riseofkings.net/forum/m/9208687/viewthread/17323748-alchemy-lore-wip

Bluesteel

We are currently working on the reintroduction of Bluesteel into Elysion once more for those who are unaware Bluesteel was the material represented by Diamond tools and Armor and was an extremely rare and valuable commodity for its light weight and sharpness. Bluesteel was an icon of power in Elysion and with a little balancing shall be back with us once again.

World Events

Events as of late have been rather messy as we are well aware however the team has been cracking down and we currently have a decently sized storyline wrote by Knight_Vector with a series of different locations prepared by the BT. The first event of this storyline has already been released however once it has finished we have something big planned....


Current RP Happenings 

Darrowmere Civil War

Currently Darrowmere has found itself in a state of Civil War with Armand Caerleon owner of Pineharbor allying with Richard Darrowmere the previous ruler of the house rallying a force to take the kingdom back from James Darrowmere who has refused their terms and turned his back upon his somewhat Tyrannical brother. Either side could win but the tension in the lands of Darrowmere is certainly rising, Which side will you take?

Coronation Of The High King

Come 8PM GMT 11/29 Saturday Ivanov of Stormhammer is to be crowned as the first High King Of Borealis since year 70 of the Second Era with the death of Rabatangas. All are encourage to watch the ceremony, could this be a new age for Elysion?
