Alter Aeon is a well established MUD with a long history. It is set in a world of swords and magic, with regular updates and system-wide events. The game is blind friendly for the visually impaired.
New and updated areas:
The underground city of Runn-Khal has opened on the island of Kordan. This level 16 zone provides a fun story and quest line for players not quite ready for Qoorik or the other high level areas on Kordan.
The catacombs below Azeroth Keep on the island of Archais have been updated and expanded. The area is now a level 27 group zone, and should provide lots of fun for players not yet ready to approach the mainland.
On the mainland, three level 31 areas have opened to the northwest of Ralnoth: Wallachia City, the Village of Vom, and the ruined castle of Radobaj. These areas were put together by the builders Draak and Shadowfax.
We've also put a lot of work into adjusting levels on the new player islands to streamline them and make sure players can find zones appropriate for their level.
Server code updates:
Add item fetch jobs to the new player islands. Use the 'job find' command on each island to hunt down available jobs.
Additions to the various event commands, including teleporting players to event areas and making events more friendly to low level players.
Vast improvements and additions to mob arenas. Mob arenas can now be used as part of events, and there have been a lot of fixes to allow more class spells and skills to work in arenas.
Casting cleric spells now requires the wisdom and charisma stats, instead of wisdom and intelligence. The charisma requirement is currently very low - approximately ten points below the wisdom requirement. The charisma requirement is expected to raise by one point every few months until it is four points below the wisdom requirement. Existing players can buy a stat swap for approximately 150k gold to help update their character.
There's a new Mush-Z release which fixes some startup/reinstall bugs.
The December advent calendar has been running since the first, so don't forget to log in and get your advent gifts! These special gifts only appear in December, so if you miss them, you have to wait until next year.
Our year end events are coming up in a couple of weeks. Check the 'show event' and 'show schedule' commands in the next few days for more information.
Lastly, the Alter Aeon 20th Anniversary event is coming up the week of January 15th. This marks two full decades of Alter Aeon, and we expect to see a lot of older faces as well as new.
