December Update and Purge

ExplosionWith Star Wars Episode VII approaching, we are quite excited and ready to have some fun.  We’ve kicked that off with a PURGE! While your credits, items, and stats are gone, we did something special this time around and restarted everyone to level 1. So you keep your Legend Levels, Quest/Skill points, and all SP skills! So….are you ready to start a fresh adventure?

In addition to the approaching movie, December 12th marks Revenge of the Jedi’s 20th Anniversary.  That’s right, we opened our digital doors way back in 1995.  Here’s a list of some of the events and new features you can see in the game.

December 12th Celebration

  • These bonuses will be in-game on December 12th, machine game-time (US Mountain Standard Time, you can see this with Date command).
  • All Player logging in on the 12th will receive a Reward for visiting.
  • Death Traps will be turned off, you will simply return to port as if you had a Japor snippet or similar item.
  • Subber Equipment loss will be turned off, you will not lose items to subber death on the 12th.

Game Design Changes

  • Euthanize is now the name of the Surgeon’s long-awaited level 100 skill.
  • Beguile is the new level 66 skill for the Scoundrel skill class.
  • Repair Ship is a new level 80 Space Engineer skill.
  • Legend 10 characters now get a 50% bonus to exp earned while leveling after remorting
  • Group information with Group command has been aligned to be more readable.
  • Free gifts: After every 5th level gained (land and space), your Guildmaster will now give you a small gift token that can be redeemed for a potentially awesome random item
  • Swindling a mob without targeting a specific item now has a chance to obtain a random item based on the victim’s level.
  • Fortress of Hate now scales the damage it deals back to the attacker based on the Sith Lord’s alignment!

World Changes

  • Items sold in unlimited quantities by game shopkeepers will be marked as not salvageable. 
  • Cline’s Heir is a new Autoquest added to the game that includes an expansion to a couple of existing zones and other additions including an homage to RotJ’s birth mud, Death’s Domain, totaling roughly 420 rooms of content.  This quest is a blatant homage to Ernest Cline’s book, Ready Player One using some of Raistlin’s favorite things.

With this new autoquest, Raistlin is also holding a Quest of sorts.  The first three non-immortal players to finish Cline’s Heir will receive a reward at a time of his choosing.  As we just purged, this could take a bit of time to complete.  We are trusting that our immortal staff will not divulge any hints about how to start or complete this quest.

Bug Fixes

  • Poison skill was only working on wrist blades and should not again be working on all dagger weapons.
