December 3, 2021 13:47: Extended Lockdown
Starting at 2 AM EST on Monday the 6th of December, Marosia will be entering an extended lockdown lasting for three weeks until the 27th of December. This is in part to give us all breathing room during the holidays, but also to facilitate the changes in staff that are ongoing. For more details, please see the official Discord server.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience, and we wish you the happiest of holidays!

October 20, 2021 19:22: Corpse Update
Corpses can now hold equipment in the same way containers do. When a character dies, the items in their inventory will drop to the ground as before except for what they were wearing. Worn armour, weapons, jewelry, and clothing remains on the corpse, and additional clothes or equipment can be placed on the corpse the same way one would put items in a container. These items will be visible on the corpse even if the corpse is put into a container such as a sarcophagus or casket. Please note that if a corpse is disposed of, the items the corpse was wearing will drop to the ground at the completion of the project.

Additionally, corpses now show up as "corpse of <nickname>" if you had given the character a nickname, or "corpse of <age gender race>" if you had not.
October 6, 2021 19:08: Catalysts (Shards but Reinvented)
Due to many, many bugs when it came to shards, the way a master mage passes on magic has now been fully overhauled.
The new item is the Catalyst.
Catalysts can be fully customised by the master mage via an item name field and an item description field when they go to create one.
To make a Catalyst, the following conditions must be met:
  • Be a master mage in an element (not gained from a catalyst)
  • Own a gem
  • Participate in a 5 year, no exp, solo project
At the end of the project, the mage receives their custom catalyst which can be given to another to learn the imbued element. They will also receive a kickback to their magic a single level. The amount of kickback will vary between 0% and 100% of the level depending on the quality of the gem.
Mages can re-master, and at that point, make another catalyst if they wish.
The mage-to-be can learn magic via the catalyst. This project is also a solo, no exp project, however, the length of the project will vary between 5-9 years depending on their Knowledge attribute.
There are no injuries to the mage-to be upon completion of the project, and they cannot create catalysts upon mastering a taught magic tree. (i.e. if John Doe learns air magic from a catalyst, they cannot make air catalysts themselves, but if they were a born water mage, they can still create water catalysts if they master the water tree.)
Mages who attempted to make shards and found the previous set of bugs have been contacted. If they have issues, they should reply to their respective reports. If you play a master mage who attempted to make a shard and haven't been contacted, please send in a report!
The wiki will be updated over the next week or so.
August 3, 2021 21:32: Verification Update
From now on, the official server will only be available to verified accounts.

This change is being made in order to help protect the privacy of active players, and will not affect anyone who is already verified, i.e. anyone who has the Marosian role.

The verification process itself will still be as quick and easy as it has always been, however, the difference will be that new players will first join a staging server from which they may direct message an admin or mod with their character information before being given an invite to this server.

We thank you for your understanding. As player comfort and safety is one of our main priorities, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.

Feel the pleasures of your character's new discoveries; weapons, armor, tools, and resources are waiting to be used and created for your character's agendas.

It's up to you. The world is full of magic, surprises, gods, and demons. Where will your character fit within it?
