ASCII maps of low level areas introduced
Thanks to my great team of map writers, we now have more low level maps in the game to help new players find their way around.
There are two types of maps - ascii maps and "word" maps which are more beneficial to screen reader users or users who prefer a more descriptive read.
The following areas now have ascii and word maps:
Carnival, Cult of BONK, Dwarven Daycare, Goblin Caverns, Goblin Pass, Murky Lair, Mob Factory, Mushroom Caves, Orchard, Pantheon Courtyard, River Tunnels, Solace, Underway Tunnels, Valley of Dogs, Wayside, The Weeping.
You can also try: "help map of" "help word map of"
1. Base helpfiles of the above areas now mention suggested level ranges.
2. Tilly's maps are discounted heavily.
3. Valley of Dogs now loads a more geographical-based map on the ground by the entrance from Goblin Caverns. Check it out. :)
4. Christmas decorations are now in. Feel free to leave goodies in the Christmas tree!
Halloween is near and we are getting ready to run a few activities for you from the 25th of October to the 2nd of November.
* ZombieFest is at your own risk. Please Read HELP ZOMBIEFEST for regular rules. Kariya might do a few changes, not impossible, so be warned ;)
** There might be unscheduled shenanigans.
*** Changes to this schedule may happen last minute.
1 'RIVER ETUAN'
A half-orc river pilot beckons you onto his raft and departs, taking you
north from Moonbay village. He whistles as he poles the raft in a steady
rhythm, but pauses here and there to give some unasked for advice.
"River Etuan is quite safe, no need to worry. You just need to watch
where you step. Stay out of the reeds, mind you. And don't jump in,
or you might not come back up. Be careful with your fishing. Some
of them fish bite back. And try not to pick too many fights, as the
docks make for harder folk than you might be used to. But like I
said, the Etuan is as safe as a mother's embrace. You just need to
treat her right."
The mighty River Etuan carves a path across the continent of Eragora, from
the northern highlands it grows from many tributaries swelling in size
until it flows out into the sea. A popular method of travel into the heart
of the continent, a vital trade route and popular with the local fisherfolk
it is considered by the indigenous peoples to be more or less safe.
Sorry for the late notice! I am a few weeks behind in my head, time flies too
fast when you're having fun.. Or when work is busy.
So now down to the point! This weekend is Canadian thanksgiving, eh!
I will be holding two HoGathons for your leveling (and dying) enjoyment.
In an attempt to reach everyone, the times are:
* October 13, 11:00am - Mortal, hero, lord - No CRs, No Sends
* October 14 Midnight (Sunday NIGHT!) - Mortal, hero, lord - CRs and Sends
Be cautious as there may or may not be some interesting changes to the powers
you receive from HoG during the HoGathon!
If you are not familiar with what a HoG is, please read HELP HOG.
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.
