Year In Review: 2019

As 2019 comes to a close and we look to a new year, it is customary to glance back and reminisce upon what has happened in the last. This has been an eventful year, and there's much to look forward to in the next. One of the biggest changes in 2019, and the one that we should bring up first, is that Estarra is no longer leading Lusternia's development. Estarra brought this game up from nothing and ran it for fifteen years, and it would not be what it is today - or anything really! - without her. The three ...

An Eye For An Eye

To the rest of the Basin, it was a day as calm as any other. In the Serenwilde Forest, however, the Bloom of Serenity's careful plans were about to reach completion. One of Maylea's followers was tasked with infiltrating Nocht, the Silent's temple in search of a precious artifact - the Eye of Dynara.

The Liar, the Madman, and the Shofet

It was just before the new year, in Roarkian of 545CE, that Gaudiguch began to experience strange sensations throughout their city. Strange shadows darting over the ground with no source to cast them, whispers with no mouth to speak them, and painful headaches where there had been no issue moments before. To some within the city, these were but an omen of what was to come later in the month.
