  1. Long ago and far far away, at the Feisty Chicken Inn and pub, a seaman walked in. He was wet – he was beat – he was nearly dead – and he told the tale of his passage to Annakol, the BIG STORM, the swamping of the ship, the attack of the sea monsters. He told of how the great tentacles grabbed him and pulled him down under the sea. How as he was passing out, he saw a chest with odd looking gold coins – how he grabbed one and died, or was it he passed out – oh yea – still here, so passed out. He awoke on the shore without knowing how – but the gold coin shone very bright and flashes of magic beamed off its surface. AHHHH – he got it – YES – was the magic coin that saved him. He passed out in the Feisty Chicken. When he came too – he was upstairs one of the guest rooms and he finds out he was there for weeks. Having no money to pay, he gives the owner his magic gold coin – Lino’s Dad polished up the skull on one side and put it in the money box. Next day they found the coin had dissolved into the very framework and rocks of the building and foundation. The curse of the Feisty Chicken started that very day – and has continued ever since. The sailor has been back over the years – he seems to be well and become a noted Captain, or so he says – his name – Captain Kylon Lionset.

    Latest Beamdog EE Update - Today

    Hello Players: This update is barely out of the box and I have discovered some - ahhhhh - features (What Microsoft calls Bugs). DM - you can no longer see the blue transition triggers, nor do they work for you as they once did - you MUST enable see triggers and use the radial menu to the 9 o'clock position or is it 10, anyway the option to activate. These SAME, once blue, transition triggers NO LONGER SHOW FOR PLAYERS. Players must mouse over a trigger to even see it - shows then in a turquoise translucent color and the little stone arch with the arrow in the middle curser shows up. This means that transitions will be much harder to find. I have already been working on placing map notes at transition points in the world but this is an ongoing project that will not be completed for a LONG time, due to the number of areas in the world, over 2000, and many areas have multiple entrances and exits. This is just the tip of the iceberg since i found this in seconds. This may be intentional by Beamdog but it IS A PROBLEM and I am not OK with it.

  8. There have always been some places that are not "fleshed out" enough.  Towns with no insides, outsides with no street people present.  Many of these shortfalls have been addressed in the last several months and are being worked on now.

    I have had some concepts of areas I have wanted to make to make the server a more wonderful place to play - I am doing that.

    In the PnP D&D days - having a cavern complex to explore was one of my favorite things.  There now exists several msnew cavern complexes from Annakol City to the Bane Mountains and The Shire Farms. 

    Today that new Spider Cavern complex went live on the server (under the Lowland Shire Hobbit Farms)

    I cam considering a second level below that will travel to another cavern north of Bree.

    Experience Points on Realms of Annakolia

    When Realms of Annakolia first started the experience meter setting for the module was set to 7% I should say - that experience meter is 1 - 100 % At one point, many years ago - certain DMs (mostly one) argued for lowering the XP meter to 5% - This was done. The experience was never stopped or caped but it was very hard to near impossible to get more than 300 XP - although it did happen, the events were very rare. I have rasied the XP meter, doubling it from 5% to 10% - we have experimented with this for a week and feel the balance is good. Realms of Annakolia is a slow progression server - not awarding huge amounts of xp for kills. There are many reasons for this but the most important is that we do not want to see high level characters made in a week or two - not in a month - it should take some time and investment and exploring.
