Angel's Labyrinth

Merc, Akkarin and I have been hard at work building a new challenge for the Realm. What started out as small idea to add a little more challenge to an Exorcism event has turned into a major project.

A few weeks ago Merc and I decided to add some traps to the Exorcism event we were going to hold. We built a few, then I had an idea for an arrow trap. This arrow trap idea never made it to the event, but I started building one. After Merc and Akkarin got it scripted and working I wondered what we'd do with it. That's when the idea of a Labyrinth came to me. Project "Angel's Labyrinth" was born. It was code named the "sooper sekrit project" and I began brainstorming. I relied heavily on Merc and Akkarin's expert scripting abilities. The result is what we believe is a difficult challenge for our citizens. It's full of traps and puzzles (and death, of course), so it will test your agility as well as your brain. This will not be a required part of either quest, this is purely an optional side thing to do.

Vilem has most generously given me the space to build this ambitious project and has provided a very nice prize for completing it. We've been working hard for several weeks on this project and we still have a way to go, but my hope is we'll be able to open in a couple of weeks or so. Here's a bit of a sneak peek:

Changes are Afoot!

Our Realm has been getting some wonderful updates lately. We hope these changes will be bring a freshness to the sim and to the community we love.

One of the changes was to the Dragon in the Catacombs. Not long ago the difficulty of the dragon was increased for those who have 500 or more kills. He's faster and does more damage. The difficulty remains as it was for the other levels. Are you up to the challenge?

Another change is to the sim itself. New textures have been added, new landscaping and even a new "friend" in the graveyard area. More changes are coming to the look of the sim in the next couple weeks. Come by and take a look, it really is beautiful!

Rumor has it there are other changes coming in the near future. The floating island will be home to a new challenge and there are whispers of a dark presence trying to gain entry into Avalon. If you listen carefully around the sim you just might get hints as to what's to come. I'm really excited to see all this happening and hope you are, too!
