Get into the habit of saving using the SAVE command when you have gotten your gear back from your corpse after dying. This is in case the MUD crashes and reverts you to a saved version of your pfile when you had no gear. - Riviat

Avatar's Anniversary Events!
We are running special events throughout August to celebrate our 19th anniversary.
Click on Read More to see the full schedule!
The Elves won - with a bit of sneaky trickery - and have again taken control of Midgaard.
The gates stand open once more. Aelmon has returned.
(Qust note: Midgaard will be rebuilt from scratch, as it is currently in rubble. But due to RL, this will not begin until the end of July. Please note the Midgaard Patrol Quest references old events and will for a bit.)
The poll will close tonight at 23:59 PM EST. For those who need to know an exact time for the quest due to real life obligations, there are two options left that are more popular: Saturday at 12PM or Sunday at 3PM. At the moment Sunday at 3PM EST is slightly in the lead.
Please vote if you have not done so yet. I will post a final note about the exact time after the poll closes. Note will be posted in about 9-10 hours.
Active poll for scheduling the final Midgaard quest
Please note there is an active poll going on (through Friday at 23:59PM EST) to determine the best time to schedule the final quest for Midgaard. This poll can be accessed on the left side of the screen (scroll down) or by visiting MAIN > POLLS. Unfortunately you probably have to be logged in to see it.
Here is the information in a bit more readable format:
With the narrow win by the Elven/Wildwood supporters, the time is nigh for the final battle for control of Midgaard - and fittingly, you can choose the time this weekend (28-29th).
Please vote if you can *probably* make it at that time. This is not for support so do not vote if you will not be there.
POLL ENDS FRIDAY NIGHT AT 23:59PM EST.
1. You need an outland account to vote. If you do not have one, read HELP WEBACCOUNT.
2. If you do not want to vote using your outland.org account you can email Zahri (a t) outland dot org as an alternate option or you can use board 2. Please tell me whether you are:
a rogue supporter, an Elven/Wildwood supporter, or undecided
whether you prefer Saturday at 12PM EST, Saturday at 4PM EST or Sunday at 3PM EST, or any time works for you.
3. This quest will feature partial player versus player (provided the code works appropriately in testing). However the prizes - for the most part participation based rather than success based - will reflect this added element.
Hero Battle quests for Midgaard this Sunday at 2PM
SUPPORT UPDATE: The support for Elves/Wildwood versus Rogues is about even, though the Elves have a slight edge here. Support your faction today!
HELP SUPPORT THE ELVES AND WILDWOOD
HELP SUPPORT THE ROGUES
This Sunday there will be two concurrent battle quests at 2PM EST: one for the supports of Elves/Wildwood and one for the supporters of Rogues. In each case you will be attacking the defenses of the other side.
The quest type is battle - killing is the main goal.
The quests are for heroes.
1. The prizes are participation based and equal for either side. i.e., it does not matter who you support or how much you die, provided you have participated in a majority of the quest. There will be quest points awarded (amongst other things), so keep a group list.
2. Two group leaders will be needed...
3. The quests will take place in two separate area and will not interact (during this quest).
Luckily Avatar is available for your adventure cravings most of the time.
But there's always ther chance that we have some issues (crash, hanging mud, network issues)
Usually players are the first to find out, and together we manage to fix it quickly.
However, to streamline this process we've written a short procedure to make sure detailed info reaches the IMM team as fast as possible.
Click to read what you, as Avatar player, can do to help resolve issues quickly.
And no worries, there is also an Immortal version that helps us figure things out quickly,
and most importantly, communicate this back to everyone else.
