Alter Aeon April 2020 Update

Alter Aeon will be having two mini-events in the near future! - The first will be an Easter-themed quest that will begin on the morning of Friday, April 10th and end on the evening of Monday the 13th. - The second mini-event will begin on May Day, that is to say, Friday, May 1st. It will feature a special area with sci-fi story elements. Highlights from the changelog in March: - The ability to set custom landmarks has been removed from survey and added as a general command, 'set landmark'. - 'Survey' is now a classless skill, and the foundation of a new Orienteering skill group, which includes skills such as climbing, forest navigation, mountaineering and spelunking. - The effectiveness of hide is now slightly altered by terrain and your knowledge of orienteering skills. - Since the 'know territory' skill has been folded into animal lore, it has been replaced by the druid spell 'bloom', a healing spell that allows druids to use seeds and acorns to increase the regeneration of their plant minions. - New leathercrafted item: quirt, a short, fast whip. - New wickercraft item: dreamcatcher, one-off wand of 'featherfall'. - Woodcrafted, leathercrafted and dragonscale armor items no long have a level-based adjective. Those adjectives are now used in with 'craft rename'. The rename routine has also been adjusted, with more variations and unique descriptors for special materials. - The level 38 mage spell, 'blaze' has been implemented. - Added an 'all -force' option for bank deposit and bank withdraw. - The Arkug (plant/tree), Plat (earth), Stal (stone) and Rava (blood) runes can now be channel cast. Arkug, Plat and Stal are more effective the higher level druid you are. Rava causes your spell to do more damage the more injured you are. - Critical spells and skills can be practiced without a teacher. - The Fool's Star will now ascend every April 1st, wreaking havoc across the land as it alters the behavior of various skills and creatures. Updates planned for April: - A new area will be added for Kordan: the Cerulean Shore, a level 14 zone. - Continue updating equipment for the higher level portions of Kordan, and then move onto Archais. - We will soon release the Sea of Despair, a level 43 group 15 zone. - The compare command is getting a major face lift to make it more useful. - Groundwork for another weekly event should get under way and be ready before the Summer Solstice event in June.

Alter Aeon

Alter Aeon server updates for Apr 05, 20 From Draak: Weekday event participation will show up on the event channel. Gambling jackpot winners now make the news. (Lexie) Event show will display if a weekday event is underway. Note that weekday events do not trigger during seasonal events. Added 'event on' and 'event off'. Added nomelee message to stat and score. Various harvesting skills for blood, bones, teeth, etc. can now target mob corpses by the name of the dead mob. The compare command has gotten an update. Hopefully it will be more useful. I will continue tweaking and improving it over the next few weeks. More tweaks to warrior/thief skill targetting and nomelee. Squashed an odd bug with harvest venom. (Mertag) Bloodletting stab should now be somewhat more effective against ethereal mobs, provided you're wielding a weapon with a damage type that can actually hurt them. Skins, shells and dragonscales now time out to avoid clutter, but can be preserved with the preservation spell or made permanent for a nominal gold expediture using leathercraft preserve.

Alter Aeon

Alter Aeon server updates for Mar 29, 20 From Draak: The Arkug (plant/tree), Plat (earth), Stal (stone) and Rava (blood) runes can now be channel cast. Changes in how Stis (intelligence) channel casting works. Added an 'all -force' option to bank deposit and bank withdrawl. Shellcrafter armor can be twice as heavy as leathercrafter armor. Dragonscale armor can be three times as heavy (up from 2.5x). New wickercraft item: dreamcatcher (wand of featherfall) Leathercrafted items will no longer have adjectives by default. The special adjectives can still show up in restrings. Tweaks to how exp from boons is handled. Fix meele targeting bug. Critical abilities can be practiced without a teacher. (Lokar) Terrain, combined with knowledge of orienteering skills, now has a minor effect on hiding effectiveness. For example, if you know forest navigation, you are now slightly better at hiding in places with trees. https://bit.ly/2Jlb0F9
