┌─── ∘°❉ July Newsletter ❉°∘ ───┐
Fre's Warmth, year 124

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

Summer finally is about to go into full swing. Free time from school, vacation time to take a breather from work, you name it. With hopefully sunny weeks ahead for plenty, Osria remains here just the same as your friendly neighbourhood roleplaying hotspot.

On that note, we have a confirmation to bring forth on the main focus of the server now, more related to the type of roleplaying experiences on offer, especially so in its worldbuilding and storytelling. Osria is now properly regarded as High Fantasy instead of Dark Fantasy, a greater focus on the fantastical than a grim environment.

By no means does this imply we abandon any serious narrative, but you’ll find the fantasy aspect to be present in a wider variety of unusual encounters, events and entities, among much more.

Don’t forget to keep up to date with our current Arc, as it is drawing closer to its finale:
[Furore: Planar Chaos]
Happy roleplaying!


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 OPENINGS!
  • Community Outreach: We’re looking for more people that have been used to Osria and its community, whom may be interested in joining Staff to help with Community related tasks.
    Common tasks you can expect from Community Outreach include the greeting and acclimatization of new players to Osria, helping with character sheets if needed and with the on-server systems and plugin usage.
    There is more that will be covered to new members of Community Outreach after approval.
EVENTS
  • [!] Current Story Arc: [Furore: Planar Chaos]
    With the earlier week, the endgame set of events of the Arc have now started, which will lead to a grand finale to this long-lasting story.
    Keep an eye on any Event Announcement pings happening in the Discord to see when DM Darkblue100 is hosting one of these events in the coming weeks as well.



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
  • Works in Progress.
  • Though not added yet to the forums, a bunch of lore entries are in the works by Story Team staff to continuously expand on the flora, fauna and more of Xenron.



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
  • Patch 1.1.4
    • “Then it’s an even fight.”
      Higher level creatures now grant more XP when encountered and fought.
      Do be careful though, it's a risk for the reward.
    • “With great power comes great responsibility.”
      Legendary and Mythic items now have added/updated rules.
      This should help clarify what to expect and what the limitations of usage are.
      Details of this can be found in Chapter 2: Roleplay System under [Attunement].

Riddle of the Month
The joy of the critters out in the wild,
at first its effects may only seem mild.
For an extra boost of energy lasting a brief time,
through brewing does one bring its potency to its prime.
Yet beware the weakness that follows soon behind,
as the drinker endures a hangover affecting both body and mind.
A beneficial gift with risks to take into consideration,
what is this addictive plant called that you should use moderation?
