┌─── ∘°❉ May Newsletter ❉°∘ ───┐
1st of Nim's Wave, year 124

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

We’ve already reached the fifth month of the year and even your resident Newsletter editor has added another year to his own journey.

Summer is right at the door and currently we’re aiming to continue and wrap up the ongoing Story Arc.
[Furore: Planar Chaos] will continue after the 7th so keep an eye out for more updates and event pings to participate, or seek out Mr. Beebles (NPC Ticket).

There’s already plans in the works for beyond the current Story Arc, to be revealed at a later time.

For the time being, we hope you’ll enjoy what’s in store for [Furore: Planar Chaos]!


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

NEW SEEKERS
EVENTS
  • [!] Current Story Arc: [Furore: Planar Chaos]
    Keep an eye out for the continuation of this ongoing storyline!
    Beyond the 7th, DM Darkblue100 will be returning to set up a small event chain in the settlement of Faygarde that will give people the chance to work towards the opening of the Vault and potentially find a way to resolve the request from Mixen’s Contract.
    For those looking to be more involved and perhaps take up one of these contracts themselves, don’t forget to contact Mr. Beebles.
    (This can be done via NPC Ticket.)



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
  • History is written by the victors.
    A major update has been done to the lore of Xenron with the [History of the World] being rewritten to better expand on the current setting.
  • One cannot judge a book by its cover.
    Finished lore on ores, creatures and plants is being added again to their respective sections. Keep an eye out for new uploads.



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
  • You must construct additional pylons!
    A Warehouse has been added where all materials related to Settling are placed. This will make payments more simplified.
  • I didn’t choose the bug life. The bug life chose me.
    Jekai now have additional traits available tied to their race for character creation, expanding and personifying the large variety found amongst their people.
  • More… More!
    The amount of an item now redeemable per Epic bundle has now been expanded to 3.
  • All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.
    To better balance the work that goes into handling a growing number of gathering requests for staff, requests for Gathering Events are now limited to Once per 2 Weeks instead of Once per Week. Instead, the payout for completing a Gathering Event is now doubled.

Riddle of the Month
Xenron, a name shared between a continent and its emperor,
one whom once brought peace yet only as a conqueror.
His people nearly made extinct by those that ruled the lands,
the end of their reign would inevitably be brought forth by his own hands.
The kingdoms of the past were neither safe from Xenron's crusade,
for those not allied were razed while others chose to hide and evade.
With victory assured and his position as emperor claimed,
what were these conflicts collectively named?
