  3. It began as a subtle shift in their behavior. Scattered reports of shadowed silhouettes of massive beasts and giant horned men, once rarely seen outside their own land were now being spotted in remote areas all across the provinces of Aversia. It didn't take long before these silhouettes turned into different colored draconian beasts and armored knights, seeming to be recovering old data from caches and scouting the terrain that seems to have changed somewhat since the last time they once ruled the lands. All but a few outright refuse contact, and most flee before others get close. Despite the sudden increase in activity, their purpose and objectives were not officially concrete, at least until now. With the Emperor of Drakonspyre making his appearance at the shambled mess that was the world council, it seems the emperor, now more than ever-believes in a vision to reclaim his birthright and prepare for war against the void, be it unity by peace or by force. There is little time to prepare, and it seems his timeline is shorter than others. In the land of Drakonspyre, armies are gathering and a navy is being hastily constructed as the forges roar to life. For the first time in an age, the Drakonspyre Imperium are looking outwards beyond their current borders, and seeking to reclaim what they once lost. The giants have returned to the playground. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- OOC: This marks the beginning of the first true Arc of the 5th world, and from here it will continue in rapid succession until Arc 3-4, depending on player choices made during those times. I think the players have had enough time to get themselves properly set up, so from here on out the train has no breaks!

    Notice of Voided Roleplay

    This is a formal announcement that the fight that occured between Monchthebiscuits character Grey and Socialdarwinists character Oberon is being voided. This includes any actions after the matter as a result of this fight/roleplay, as well as the death of the character Grey. We apologise for the inconvenience but came to this conclusion after it was highlighted that the effects of casting and braincap were not properly roleplayed and we felt that had they, the outcome of the roleplay would have been very different. Below is the vote indicating how we as moderators voted. For Against Tree Val Natureluvr Fraser AMOH LordoftheDank Pandamainia Dogbew

    Ban System Rework

    This is an official announcement regarding the new rework of the Ban and Appeal system, that will be effective immediately. Additionally, to reflect the new changes, we will be systematically going over the current roster of banned players and deciding whether or not they should be unbanned or should have to appeal as part of an 'Indefinite Ban'. Here is the vote to pass this change in system. For: Against: Tree Olyblob Natureluvr LordoftheDank Val Kososki To view the thread please see the below thread. This section has seen an overhaul, the focus being largely on the fact that votes on warnings will now be public to the players who have had the action taken against them, and if no action is taken. The vote will still be made available in the report made. Otherwise, warnings build up and expire naturally, if you have two warnings you are on a last warning status. Three unexpired warnings is a ban. This section has only experienced a small change. The phrase ' Special circumstances such as repeat offences may result in a different expiration time.' as we felt that such actions would be handled in the changes to how bans are handled. All warnings expire after 3 months. This is the BIG Change. Ban reports now include public votes on the ban and as much evidence as possible. The Appeal system is 90% gone, instead of being banned and having to appeal to have the ban removed. Instead you will now be 'Temp-Banned' depending on how many times you have been banned. Once the ban expires you can return to the server. Once you return to the server after being banned, you will now experience a 1 OOC month Probation period, during which you need to demonstrate that your behaviour has changed since you were banned. Effectively, you need to not perform any behaviour that would warrant a ban or a warning. Should you conduct yourself in such a manner during your probation. You will be banned, and your ban timer will reset and escalate to the next timer. These 'Temp-bans' are not appealable. These are the new timers that scale with more bans you have as a player. Should you be deserving of having four or more bans under your belt, then you will experience an 'Indefinite Ban'. This most reflects the old ban and appeal system. Instead of being 'Temp-banned', you will instead be banned indefinitely until you appeal to return. If your appeal fails, nothing happens as you are still just banned. If you are successful, you return to the server and experience a 3 OOC month probation period. If you have any feedback or suggestions regarding this updated system, please leave your constructive comments on the forum thread below.

    Aethier's 7th Anniversary Event!

    A strange phenomena appears to be happening to the world that even leaves many higher powers that be bewildered. An anniversary for the world beyond, yet, it seems something from that beyond desires to watch the realm dance for it. Old memories of great battles against legendary foes appear like bubbles at the edges of the multiverse, and begin to convene toward the planet Aethius. On saturday, the 11th of July all player events are postponed to be rescheduled, and the 7th Anniversary event will be beginning around 3 PM EST and run for the entire day.

    My Fellow Aethierians

    Hello everyone, it's your friendly neighborhood Ginja, some of you may know me, some of you may not, some of you may still be wondering "Is it pronounced with a soft or a hard G?" (It's soft) Because of this I am planning on making this introduction proper. I have been a part of the Aethier community since early 2015, where I played a few minor characters for about a year or so before moving on. That is of course until the most recent Exodus in which I returned with a hopes of a fresh new start. Since then I have been enjoying seeing how much the server, its lore, community and experience has grown since then and I hope to continue building on that experience for the future. In the real world, I am a 24 year-old Ginger built like an asparagus currently living near the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. In life, I am a Union Carpenter as well as a freelance photographer, which I have been working as for a combined 4 years now. As the new face of the Faction Team, I hope to be able to ensure a productive, efficient, and overall successful future for the team as well as the rest of the Aethier community. If you happen to have any questions, concerns, or otherwise please feel free to message me here on the website, in game, or on discord. See you all around! ~Ginja.

    New Forum & Bug Feedback Thread

    When posting a Custom Item Application when I have copy/pasted the previous application into its designated slot at the beginning of the application and indicated "Yes" towards it being the same lore text when I go to post the application those settings revert. As in after I post the application it doesn't show the link that I posted as well it reverts the tab back to "No" and not "Yes" towards it being the same lore text.

    An Eerie Silence

    Despite the supposed festivities from the other realms, many of the divine have seem to have gone silent. Even the appearance of Demi-servants upon Oklamats plane have dwindled, and people have begun to gradually go home. Despite this, the realm has remained open and stable, until soon enough a sign blocks the entranceway into the realm. "Until further notice, the tournament has been postponed indefinitely. Matters relating to the survival of the multiverse have been brought forth that requires our undivided attention." If it could possibly get any more ominous then that, a strange pitch black ripple was sent through the skies, which originated somewhere within Aversia. Something had made landfall. And then reports of large silhouettes in the sky above every city in the west only called further question of what came next. [Expect random events in the next few days in Arkolos!]

  17. Hello everyone! Your friendly neighborhood Moderation Team is back with another update for you all. We recently realized we don't have a set system in place for handling players who have had their ban appeals declined, so we've written up an official system to help keep things fair across the board! As always, this system will not impact any players who have already been given appeal wait times and only applies to future instances. Additionally, in order to be a bit more clear about the purposes of warnings, bans, and appeals, I've added an overview section to the information thread we have up in the Rules & Policies section. All of this information has been updated on this thread and is also quoted below for your convenience. Overview section: Update to Bans, Appeals, & Unbans section regarding declined ban appeals:

    !!! Another Round of Moderation Updates !!!

    Sooo I didn't realize Lore Team needed to look over the Projectile rework before Moderation put it out. WHOOPS! Lore Team looked over the system now and worked with some of the available Mods to rework the system again for better balancing. The update is put out and also quoted below! So sorry for any inconvenience and confusion!
  22. Hello Aethier Community! The following thread is a bit long, but I strongly suggest reading it in full in order to get the complete context and reasoning for all of the new changes. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the changes, feel free to contact me on Discord at natureluvr#5448 and I will do my best to respond to you as soon as I can! First clarification: the Weapon Mechanics (Universal) section of the CRP Moderation Standards thread have been edited to clarify emote times regarding the drawing of projectile weapons. The update is quoted below. Second clarification: the Aethier Rules & Policies thread has been updated to include a section under Content Rules addressing references to and use of IRL drugs in roleplay (not counting tobacco and alcohol). This has never been permitted but wasn't written down clearly anywhere, so we've edited that in. The update is quoted below. Third clarification: Moderation Team is taking an official public stance with the community regarding a behavior that has becoming fairly commonplace lately. Situations in which players go up to a Team Member or Team Leader and say something along the lines of "You're biased so I don't respect anything you say or decide." is considered toxic behavior. Saying something like this directly to the team member/leader or making these accusations while they are handling a situation for you is considered malicious and will result in a warning. Nothing good can ever come of situations like these, so there is no reason for them to occur. Concerns of bias should always be brought respectfully and appropriately to the Team Leader if a Team Member is in question or to IA if a Team Leader is in question, along with any supporting evidence. This way, genuine concerns can be properly investigated. This update to the Aethier Rules & Policies thread is quoted below. First new implementation: Moderation Team has discussed and reviewed the current precedents and treatments of "combat logging" situations. We are changing the way we treat combat logs in attempt to be more fair and understanding with special circumstances. We are also putting more information about combat logs in writing on the Aethier Rules & Policies thread in order to be more transparent with the playerbase. The update to this policy has been implemented under the No Avoiding RP Consequences section of the rules and is quoted below. Second new implementation: Recently there has been a lot of confusion regarding warnings and whether or not they expire, how long they take to expire, if they should require appeals to expire, how warning expiration impacts potential for bans, etc. Moderation Team has thoroughly discussed this issue and come to conclusions regarding how we want points and expiration to work. We have posted up a new thread titled 'Information on Warnings, Warning Points, Bans etc.' which you can find here. We have done our best to include information regarding Moderation procedures with the goal of being more clear and fair with the playerbase. All warnings given prior to today, April 19, 2020, will follow whatever warning expiration date was stated on the warning. --- Thank you all so much for taking the time to read through all of our updates! Sorry for the huge post, but we wanted to roll out as many changes at once as we could in order to avoid spamming the forums with updates. Thank you for your understanding and we hope that all of our changes and clarifications will have a positive impact for the server!!
  23. Overview Warnings - The warning system is in place to dole out disciplinary action to players who violate the rules. We operate by a three strike warning system because after a player is given a warning, we are giving them another chance to correct their behaviour. Bans - When a player is banned, they have been given too many chances or taken things too far to the extreme, so much so to the point where they are deemed no longer fit to be a member of the Aethier community. Appeals - In the event where a person has been banned and told they need to appeal to be welcomed back, the player makes the appeal and the Moderation reviews it and hosts a vote. Moderation team should, when considering the appeal, review the players watchlist and the length of time they have been away and make an informed decision as to whether the player has altered their behaviour to the extent that they would be welcome back on the server. The Watchlist, Warning Points, and Expirations All verbal warnings, warnings, bans, appeals, and DNRs are documented in the watchlist section of the forums. Warning points expire after 3 OOC months, at which point they no longer negatively impact your standing. Expired warning points may be reflected upon when handling current and future warnings or bans. Moderation votes on warnings will be provided in players watchlists if applicable. Should no action be taken on a report and no warning given, the vote will not be handed out but can still be asked for. Votes on actions, regardless of outcome, will be made visible to the players who formed the report against another player, allowing them to see the full conclusion of their report. When a player accumulates 2 unexpired warning points, repeat offenses or not, the player is considered to be on general "Last Warning" status. General last warning status lasts as long as there are 2 unexpired warning points. When a player accumulates 2 expired warning points for a repeat offense behavior, the player is still considered to be on "Last Warning" status for that particular violation. Verbal Warnings A verbal warning is recorded as a "Misbehavior" and has 0 warning points when given as a forum warning. A repeat offense of something that previously resulted in a Verbal Warning will receive a Formal Warning. Since verbal warnings do not have any points associated with them, there's nothing to expire or be appealed. Formal Warnings A formal warning is recorded as a "Warning" and has 1 or more warning points when given as a forum warning. When given as an in game warning, each warning notification in the chat is considered 1 warning point. Formal warnings typically take 3 OOC months to expire. The expiration date will be displayed on the warning notification if the warning is a forum warning. Formal warnings can be appealed in the Appeals section of the forums. An approvable appeal should include an admission to the behavior resulting in the warning, an apology for the behavior resulting in the warning, and a desire to make efforts to improve future behavior. If an appeal is approved, the warning expiration time will be reduced to 1 OOC month. Formal warnings that are repeat offences will still be taken into consideration regardless of having been expired or not. Bans, Appeals, & Unbans When a player accumulates 3 unexpired warning points, repeat offences or not, the player will be banned instead of receiving a third warning notification. Repeat offences (breaking the same rule more than once) will override warning expiration. This means that if you violate the same rule 3 times, no matter the time between violations, a ban may still occur. Bans may also occur in situations with severe rule violations such as Mature Content, toxicity, harassment, etc. regardless of whether or not there are 2 prior warning points for such behavior. These types of situations are left up to Moderation Team discretion. Ban Reports are to be posted publicly with as much evidence as possible, with the moderation vote held on the matter being public within the report. Typically when banned you will experience a 'Temp-Ban' situation, where you are banned for a certain period of time, dependant on how many bans you've had. Once the time has expired, you can return to the server without making an appeal. Upon return, players experience a 1 OOC month probation period where the player is required to prove that they have changed their behaviour to fit within the server. Effectively, the player needs to not get in trouble during this period. Should the player display behaviour that would typically result in a ban or a warning during their probation period, they are banned once more with their ban timer escalating to the next level of ban timer. The process of being banned then entering probation repeats. These bans, due to naturally expiring, are not appealable but still disputable should the situation arise. Ban Timers First Ban - At Moderation Discretion/ up to 1 Month Second Ban - 3 Months Third Ban - 6 Months Fourth or more Bans - 'Indefinite Ban' Indefinite Ban These types of bans are not to be mistaken for DNR, these bans are referred to as 'Indefinite' because the ban does not naturally expire and can exist for any length of time. Typically, to warrant an 'indefinite ban' a player needs to have been banned three times prior to this ban or has repeatedly done the same severe action over and over again. Instead of presenting you with a time upon which your ban expires, you are simply banned and in this scenario, you need to appeal to have the ban lifted. However, you can appeal at any time and there is no limit between appeals You should appeal when you truly feel you have made a change and are suitable to return, at which point Moderation will vote. A minimum time limit of 1 OOC month is imposed after being 'Indefinitely banned' before you can submit your appeal. It is discouraged to immediately appeal, these will not be accepted. If you are unsuccessful, nothing changes. You are still banned and can appeal another time. If, however, you are successful in your appeal, then you enter the normal process of probation, except your probationary period is 3 OOC months instead of 1. DNR Information on DNR can be found here.

    Event Team Announcement

    Evening All, Hopefully this is my first and only announcement of this kind as Event Secretary but I’m here to basically clear up the circumstances and reasoning behind an event ban being issued to a player yesterday. The Team Leader proposed in Event chat, an event ban. However, they wished for it to be discussed and decided on by the members of the team. A discussion was held in which the length of the ban and possible existence of it was discussed with several team members contributing, eventually a majority vote was passed in favour of a one month event ban with a one month probationary period following the expiration of the ban. Both myself and the team leader abstained from the vote for the sake of not influencing the vote nor did we express opinions in the discussion. In the end, the vote was passed in favour of the ban and whilst a very uncommon thing for us to do, the majority of our DM’s felt it was appropriate. The reasoning behind such was disruptive behaviour in events and repeated toxicity towards DM’s. We on the event team do not tolerate such behaviour and DM’s reserve the right to remove players from Events if they are continually disruptive or rude to the DM’s who willingly volunteer their time to provide events for players. We can understand and appreciate the gravity and impact of this decision on the player and their roleplay, and how it can affect other roleplayers around them. This decision was not made lightly but in light of grievances raised by members of the community, in an act of transparency we wished to come forward about our process in making this decision. Tree Event Secretary

    Notice of Voided Roleplay

    Appologies for the delay on this post! The following is a report of the incident written by Natureluvr, Proofread with some modifications from myself. On April 9, 2020 an event took place at the Teardrop Wrathguard location in which three characters attempted to steal the teardrop and release the voidling it was containing. This roleplay has since been voided due to a number of reasons which are detailed below. One of the most prevalent issues resulting in the void was a miscommunication regarding NPCs. The Reiklands were under the impression that they could have some of their NPCs stationed at the event location along with a camp/some form of barricades. They had discussed this with kyle and got permission from him, making threads on the forums with roleplay for their NPCs. When limited was informed of this, he spoke with kyle and told him that this wasn’t allowed due to the political system because the event site is located just outside of the tiles claimed by the Reiklands and NPCs may only be stationed at locations within the tile claims. As a result of this miscommunication, limited had told the Reiklands they could have a small group of NPCs present at the event to try and make up for it, however as the event was starting, limited revoked this allocation. Internal Affairs has determined that this was not an appropriate course of action to be taken. Another issue contributing to the void is OOC scheduling. The Reiklands had been doing the Teardrop event line since February and were scheduled to complete the event arc at the end of April. The finale event was initially scheduled to be earlier, in March, however it was postponed due to concerns about being able to have all the players in attendance. The group attempting to steal the artifact scheduled their event to take place before the currently set finale event of the Reiklands. A third issue contributing to the void is OOC miscommunication between Moderation members. When natureluvr was called in to the event, she was under the impression she was being asked to deliver a verdict that had already been decided, this verdict being the removal of the Reikland players present at the Teardrop location. natureluvr then attempted to discuss allowing the players to stay at the location, but was under the impression that Phantom would make the final decision regarding each of the four players present. Phantom did not intend for these to be the impressions given. A final issue that contributed to the void was the issue of BonesApart’s instant character death being voided. There was a lot of discussion and concern regarding how he would/could possibly have escaped the event alive, what he would know, what would have happened to the character, etc. A large number of accusations have been made surrounding this incident, and we hope the above provides some clarity as to what has happened. Several conversations and some action has already been taken as a prevenative measure. This inclused voulentary action from Faction Team, Event Team, and Moderation team as how to ensure that the incidents do not repeat. Further discussions as of what to do going forward will take place during the team leader meeting scheduled on the 17th of April. Internal Affairs discussed the possibility of redoing the roleplay and allowing a certain number of characters to be present on either side, or possibly doing something with NPCs, however, we were informed that there was no interest in redoing the roleplay on the part of the group who had created the theft event. All things considered, after much investigation and discussion we felt the most appropriate course of action would be a full void, as to leave things as they were would have left a lot of loose ends untied, and would have proceeded into further investigations and processes to clear up the many misconceptions surrounding the event, including misplaced character understanding of what took place, and we would have also needed to make some alterations to the outcome to some degree to provide continuity and a fair resolve for all involved in which we did not see a way to amicably solve the situation as it was. All things considered, a full void seemed like the only viable course of action, and was voted upon by Internal affiars, and the incident invigilators. I hope the above provides the needed clarity on the issue at hand, however if you have any further questions regarding the reasoning for the void, please feel free to contact me via forum PM or Discord message at Serethia#0001. Thank you for your patience.
