I've been gone for 3-4 years, what should I know?

Thread title says it all. I have no idea what's going on.

Also, where's my Binx forum title. :(


  • Holy - it's Gishin!

    Delphinus said:
    - The Blademaster class was introduced.
    - The Alchemist class was introduced, providing a non-forestal source of healing items. Forestal classes can only join Eleusis now, and alchemists can join any city but Eleusis.
    - Praying for salvation no longer costs additional XP.
    - Racial stats, bonuses, and penalties were overhauled. They've been largely replaced by a combination of racial specialisations (stat builds) and traits (perks/feats you can take every ten levels).
    - Theft via the force-command system has been removed. In its place, Serpents are now able to pickpocket gold and certain items from a person's inventory. This can also be done on NPCs.
    - Aligned classes are more closely aligned. Necromancers, forestals, devout, and occultists have all largely been pulled from cities that oppose them.
    - All of Sapience has been revealed, as well as most of the continent of Meropis. (See here)
    - More recently, simplified PK (PK with RP justification) replaced the old PK-cause system.

    It's the Binx! Hi Gishin! (Not sure if you remember me, but I remember you, heh!)

    Pretty much what Delphinus said via Sohl's quoting.

    ETA: Totally missed that avatar for some strange reason. Except it doesn't move anymore, which makes me a little sad.

    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to? You will never find that [everlasting] life for which you are looking. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping. As for you, Gilgamesh, fill your belly with good things; day and night, night and day, dance and be merry, feast and rejoice. Let your clothes be fresh, bathe yourself in water, cherish the little child that holds your hand, and make your wife happy in your embrace; for this too is the lot of man." 

  • It makes me sad too. :(

    Also, hi!

    So, I don't need anti-theft reflexes anymore?

    Selfishness stops pickpocket, and it can be stripped legally now, but there's not much of actual value that can be stolen bar gold, and only if you let someone pickpocket you over and over.

    Also to add to the earlier list, the drunken old man Sarapis is back!

    Not really, no.
  • What about Maya or Tecton? Is Penth still doing ideas? I noticed I'm not Elysian anymore.
  • edited September 2012
    Tecton is now king of the mountain, the person behind Maya when she was head admin left IRE, but the role itself is active. Pentharian is active as well, though ideas is now primarily handled by Cardan, one of the coders. Not sure about Elysian stuff, but the Church was vaporized by Romulan warbirds and replaced by the Citadel.

    Edit: The overall tone and atmosphere of Achaea is really looking up lately; lots of fantastic changes and updates and I'm sure more goodies are in the works. Definitely a good time to come back.

  • Ah, I noticed I wasn't in the church anymore either. Thanks for the info!
  • Pentharian disbanded His order 1.5 years ago, but now it's back. Probably explains that.
  • @Sohl: When I saw this thread's title, I thought it was the other one. True and honest fact.

    @Gishin: Thackery Binx, thou mangy feline. Still alive?

    This was exactly my thought!

    Welcome back, Gishin. You likely don't remember me, but I remember you. :D

    And I love too                                                                          Be still, my indelible friend
    That love soon might end                                                         You are unbreaking
    And be known in its aching                                                      Though quaking
    Shown in this shaking                                                             Though crazy
    Lately of my wasteland, baby                                                 That's just wasteland, baby
