News and Updates


It’s been a month without update, but the wait was hopefully worth it. We have a bunch of news, so bear with us as we go through it. One of the biggest things is….

Happy Birthday Antarsia!


A new year, and Antarsia has survived our first year! We couldn’t have done it without all of you guys, so thank you from the staff to you!! Staff has been working hard to bring new material to you guys and we really could not express how much it has meant to go on this journey with you all. For our 1st birthday, we have a few new things to celebrate our birthday! One of which is our god, Tharamos, has gotten into the birthday spirit. His skin has been updated to celebrate our birthday month. Go check it out!

New Badges!


Staff cannot express how much they appreciate everyone, so a new awards system has been installed to show just that! These awards are badges in the shape of triangular gems that each represent a different achievement! This can range from contributing to the site to participating in an event, being active in our Discord, etc. To kick things off, it is Antarsia’s 1st birthday so everyone will be receiving an award for being with us as we celebrate! If you have not received this award, let Achera know! It will be available to all who have logged in during January.

New Species, Curses, and Creatures!!


Please welcome the Nymphs, Seedlings, Sol’teras, Gargoyles, and Or’rix to our species page! The Nymphs were worked on by our very own @Immortal Cyan& @King Fury while the rest were done by @Kila! We also have Mimics that have been added to our curses page done by @Andromeda!

Bellonese have also gotten their artwork updated! You can thank our wonderful @Kila for that!

Plot Update!


Oh no! A third oracle has died! Aerithe, oracle of Zarkos, died publically in Prerio City square of what many believe to be suffocation.  Find out what happened in When Air Suffocates.

Timeskip!


The site time has moved forward to the 25th of Haliea. Please update your threads accordingly to reflect the new time.

Revamped Character Information!


To better help with navigation and Discord integration in the future, this section of the forum has been reorganized a bit. The Chat with Staff section has replaced the Questions section of the forum. While you can still ask questions on the forum, you can now do so in the Chat with Staff section! This section now includes Moving/Closing Threads, the Item Usage Tracker, and the new Add Characters to Guide thread! Anything that requires staff action will be placed in here.

The Looking for Threads and Thread Trackers section has now been changed to Looking for Threads and Plotting. Thread Trackers have moved to the revamped Character Journals and Thread Trackers section.

We also have introduced Wanted Ads! If you are looking to fill part of a character’s family, a new lover, etc. this is where you can post your request. This can be found in the revamped Character Adoptions and Wanted Ads.

Add Characters to Guide!


I mentioned this in the previous section, but this new thread is to help staff add your characters to the Character Directory! After characters have been accepted, the role-player is expected to post a small forum to this thread so staff can add them to the directory. You can check out the new section here.

Why fill a form? The coding we use can be complicated to keep adding characters to when we do 20+ at a time sometimes. So to make things easier, this little form breaks the information up so we can assembly-line the info into our code!

Guidebook Revamp!


The guidebook has reverted back to Tharamos’s Reign once more. It also has had the navigation rearranged so it makes more sense and easier to navigate. There have been a few new inclusions to various sections of the guidebook, so go take a peek!

Newbie Guide!


After what feels like forever, we finally have a newbie guide! This will help new members or potential members get an idea for how to navigate around the site. If you have any suggestions, feel free to ask a staff member found in the blue color!

Content Updates!


The Legends page has been updated to include 4 new legends, courtesy of @Kila. The Items page is also being revamped to include more thorough descriptions of some missing items we had in the shop.

Credits Page Added!


How have we gone this long without one?? Well fear no more! Check out our new credits page! We have all the credits for everything anyone has done to contribute to the site ranging from artwork to code, species, creatures, and more. It is broken down based on who is the original writer and who did edits if it was writing. If writing or artwork was done for our species and creatures, credits now appear under the basic information. Thank you everyone who has contributed. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Discord Integration!


We’re a big community on using our Discord, but we also have areas on the forum to use! So to support this, we have found ways to integrate our forum into Discord a bit better. These changes will be happening over the next month, but look out!

One of the biggest things is when someone posts in a specific area such as Looking for Threads, a message will show up in the Discord in the corresponding channel. This is to encourage you guys to post more to those areas on the board! Remember, you get gold (the site’s currency) to use for shop items when you post on the site!

We have also switched our cbox replacement from TitansEmbeds to widgetbot.io. It should provide a better experience to chat from the forum, so I encourage you all to use it! You can sign in with your discord there too, so it’ll be posted from your account with your name and avatar, just with BOT next to it! Widgetbot will allow for more fun features, so watch out for those as well slowly add them!

Mee6-kun is back! After Mee-kun worked so hard to give us levels along with Tatsu-kun, staff realized we didn’t need 2 leveling systems, so Mee-kun has been quietly waiting for a job. Well, staff is glad to bring back Mee-kun with Antarsia Fun Facts! These will be facts posted 1-2 times a day that reflect small facts about… well just about anything Antarsia related! This can range from info on the species to the gods, stuff staff did when contributing, to really anything! Enjoy and let Mee-kun know how much we’ve missed them!!

Referral Program!


Staff is excited to announce our new Referral Program! There are fun rewards to claim the more members who are referred by you! This can be redeemable for any member who has joined started January 1st, 2018 and will be available permanently. More information can be found in the Referral Program thread.


Map Update!


The maps of Antarsia have been updated to include all recognized locations in Antarsia. This include landmarks, shrines, cities, villages, and more! Every location that has a written description is now on the map, so go check it out!

We hope that you all enjoy the new features and thank you once more for celebrating this birthday with us!! 

On a more serious note, this is a reminder to please read our rules once more. Staff has been informed of users joining that do not follow the rules or are below the age requirement. These rules are in place for a reason. Should anyone be found in violation of these rules, both the party involved and the party who has brought them to the site will be handled accordingly.
