┌─── ∘°❉ April Newsletter ❉°∘ ───┐
1st of Aemal's Watch, year 124

~Hello Seekers~
Welcome to the seventh Osrian Newsletter release!

While some have gained quite the stash of chocolates and others can’t see another egg for the rest of the year, one thing is for certain:
Easter has come and already gone as we move from March into April.
We’ve already survived the trials and tribulations of a mischievous April 1st,
but we are only at the start of the month with still plenty capable of happening in the weeks ahead.

No matter whether you have an eventful time ahead or life’s pace is slowing down a bit after several holiday-filled early months of the year,
Osria is still continuing onwards at a steady pace as we continue to expand lore and aim to continue providing fun roleplaying experiences.

Several player-made settlements have already started to be set up on a few areas of the continent,
expanding the potential hotspots for characters to visit, gather and hang out.
We wish everyone the best in their settling efforts!


Our monthly newsletters offer a quick overview on notable changes and additions that happened over the previous month.
If you’re looking for these updates and recaps, you’re in the right place!
Keep an eye out for other points of interest such as the monthly question or riddle for a chance to earn a title and Crystals, as well as news regarding server contribution or temporary season related bundles.
We continue to strive for engagement with the community and providing enjoyment to all partaking in Osria’s RP experience.


As always, if you have any suggestions or concerns or simply wish to aid our growing community!

Happy Roleplaying
∘°❉ SERVER UPDATES ❉°∘
NEW SEEKERS
STAFF
  • Build Team: A big welcome to Nyomi_Wood & Crowberus , who both have joined our Build Team together in March!
EVENTS
  • [!] Current Story Arc: [Furore: Planar Chaos]
    Chaos is at an all-time high as Sunnydale and the lands beyond have been subjected to peculiar events, whimsical distortions, reality-bending encounters and much more.



Random events continue to be a possibility to encounter, especially at times of notable player activity in an area.
Usually when sudden events occur, the DM will give a ping in the random-event-ping channel to alert people they are able to run a random event.
Some of these events might be part of something greater that will last longer than a single event.

Make sure to keep an eye out for that and if you haven't joined our discord yet, consider joining. You can find the link on our homepage.
LORE
  • And from that day forward whenever a bunch of animals are gathered in one place it's called a zoo.
    Unless it’s a farm!

    More creatures are step-by-step being added to the [Fauna] section within Osria’s Lore.
    Even more to come, so keep an eye out for more threads and updates.
  • You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.
    More lore on Xenron’s factions and cities is being actively added on the forums.
    Check these new additions out in the [Xenron Lore] section.



Lore updates can happen at any time with new discoveries and encounters; by player effort, during events and other happenings.
You can check out Osrian Lore over at [Lore]
Did you know you can submit your own lore or write lore for a reward?

SYSTEMS
  • I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.
    All Detection and Identification spells now have a standard and specific way of function which is elaborated in the Build-A-Spell document.
    New conditions have also been added in the form of Wet and Fused.
  • Sell me this pen.
    The
    Market and Dockyard have had their passives reworked to make the structures more valuable, while still retaining the usability as warp points.
    Owners earn
    100 extra Crystals for a total of 275 Crystals, due to resource buildings already granted resources alongside payment.
    A few bits of extra balancing and updating happened to other buildings as well.
    • Markets specifically allow access to Common and Uncommon crafting goods merchants for your settlement.
    • Dockyards allow for occasional exotic merchants to sell Rare goods or goods not generally found in the nearby areas.
  • The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.
    There is now an extra document beneath the link to the Build-A-Spell document link that expands on possible effectsthat can be done through spells.
    You can find this link at [Chapter 3: Branches of Progression].

Riddle of the Month
A city of otherwordly origins housing many seeking prosperity,
yet many go there to achieve such through lack of morality.
It is desperately kept in check by magical hunters upholding laws,
yet numerous are those of silvered hands and the blackest of paws.
The local leadership holds arcane power aplenty,
with a headcount numbered at the half-a-twenty.
Should you seek a place of money and magic,
what is this city called that should do the trick?
