Great Library Clarifications

Craft Design Overhaul

Greetings, Mortals. For some time now, We have been evaluating the strengths and flaws of Our design system. We believe that the Lusternian design system is one of the hallmarks of the game, and one of our greatest features. We also understand that over the decade and longer that it has existed, its rules have grown...unruly. Today We can announce that We have devised a streamlined and simplified set of rules for the creation and submission of designs within Lusternia. We, along with everyone here in the Havens, believe that these rules will both broaden the horizons of your creativity ...

Visitor in Blue

In mid-year 535 CE, the Serenwilde had an unexpected visitor: While sewing some new attire for herself, Lief Myeras was visited by shadowy figure with a pair of oval, green eyes, who did not stay long, but left behind a single bouncing muku ball. Lief, though behind on the news, soon learned that the muku were the signature fauna grown by a sharded race named the kaelye, who dwell upon the aetherbubble Lyraa Ey Rielys, and who were featured in dire events years ago: when Lyraa Ey Rielys was on a collision course with Lusternia itself. Like his predessor Taimi ...

Some came in dreams, whilst others would strike at random - bringing images from a titanic figure tearing away monstrous wings to the world transformed into immaculate and desolate forms.

The Battle to Defend Time

In the middle of the 530th year after the Coming of Estarra, the people of the Basin of Life began to experience strange visions. Some came in dreams, whilst others would strike at random - bringing images from a titanic figure tearing away monstrous wings to the world transformed into immaculate and desolate forms. This quickly caught the notice of the world's adventurers, but it was quite by accident that the first prophecy regarding the weaknesses in the timestream was found. Indeed, Gurashi An'Ryshe was overwhelmed to discover that his summoning of Mother Night had elicited more than an urge ...
