Activity Check
We’re taking this update as a time to run a long overdue activity check! Keep an eye out for that thread in the coming weeks for more info!


New Layout!
More than just a new layout, we have new code as well! And with this sleek new update comes new surprises: Posting style options! Users will have the ability to choose between two posting style, vertical and horizontal.


Vertical


Horizontal


To change between the two simply go to your User CP > Your Profile > Edit Options > and check/uncheck Display Posts in Classic Mode


Checking this box will enable the vertical posting style, and unchecking it will enable horizontal!


The coding was done by our wonderful Kat, who works behind the scenes to help keep Antarsia up and running! Thank you so much, Kat <3 Antarsia wouldn’t be what it is without you!


But there’s more to this new layout than shiny new code. We now have gorgeous land art done by Han! Han has done a lot of art for members of Antarsia, and we’re glad to finally have his gorgeous art front and center on the forum. He’s done an amazing job breathing life into the different realms of the land, so make sure to give them a good look!


Staff has been busy converting the old skins to the new layout, many with improved colors! We’ll be rolling out new skins in the future, too, and if you have a theme suggestion feel free to drop it off in Suggestions and we’ll see what we can do!

WEATHER AND DAY IN CHARACTER
We are currently working on an additional tab on the new layouts that will show major weather events and the date in character! Please be patient with us as we handle this undertaking. Currently the date is Haliea 25th!


Chibi Bases!
At long last we finally have the first round of chibi bases ready for release! With art by Han, these stunning bases will be used to create pieces for members of their beloved characters! These bases have different horns, wings, scales, tails, etc all to help you capture or create your character! If there’s a feature or mutation you need, we’ll help get it added to the base!


For this first batch we have dragons (eastern, western, and wyvern) and lions, oh my!


Here we have Gilgamesh displaying our stylish Western base!

Below is the same base as Gilgamesh with a wingless option, sported by Ker.


Here we have Roma, showing off another variant of a different dragon base!

This lucky fellow is modeling our Eastern base!
Keep your eyes peeled, because they’ll be up for adoption soon!

Here we have a sunset inspired beauty showing off our Wyvern base!
Keep your eyes peeled, because they’ll be up for adoption soon.



We’ve got a stunning pad displaying our Lion base!
Keep your eyes peeled, he’s one of five that will be up or adoption soon. All five are designed by our lovely member Kumotogi! Deviantart Profile: HERE!

More chibi bases are in the works, including humanoids! We hope you look forward to them!


Plot!
The King is Dead!
The tyrannical king of the Main Branch of the Western dragons has been assassinated by a rather strange pair: a tarsian and a feline kelahati.


The tarsian issued a warning to the court before leaving: “As the King lays dead a new one is to be found. The line of succession is void, and the new King will not be his heir or I shall return and wipe the lineage clean."


The court is in an uproar, and tensions are high over who will rise to take the throne before the king’s body has even gone cold.


Rumors that the dwarves will take advantage of this time of confusion abound.


The only ones celebrating this news are the races who were held under the weight of his iron claws, free from his tyranny for the first time in centuries.


The Living Dead???
The dead continue to rise at an alarming rate. Tears in the vikta still spawn and spread rapidly, and there have been reports of mysterious figures roaming the lands.


Have the gods truly forsaken us? Is this the end of the realm as we know it?


Please keep in mind that in four weeks we’ll be closing applications for bringing characters back from the dead! If you have a character that’s dead by default, now’s the time to bring them back, because there’s no telling when or if there will be another chance!


Submit those applications HERE


The Angel/Demon War
Demons and Angels alike keep chipping away at each other’s borders. Patrols of Famine demons keep crossing the Warring Wastes to raid farms of the angelic kingdoms of Plenty and Light. The royals are beginning to notice these brash daylight raids, and tensions are reaching a boiling point.


Some royal angels seek peace talks with the demons. Others seek war.


Either way, something is about to break. The question is: What?


Seeking Staff!
We’ll soon be opening positions for new moderators! As admins we’re always working hard, but we can’t always be online to manage the forum, so to help us keep the site running smoothly we’re seeking new mods!


Please keep your eyes out for that news post if you’re interested!



Quests!
We now have quests available for members to complete! Some of these quests involve slaying beasts or finding rare ingredients, others, well, you’ll have to see for yourself ;D


These quests will help you earn gold or items to use in roleplay. Some will be limited in the number of times you can do them, others will be limitless.


We’ll be adding more quests in the future, and if you’d like to write a quest head on over to our suggestions board!


To learn more about our quests, click HERE



Of the Month Awards!
We now have of the months! This will be determined by the members each month through votes. At the moment we’ll be featuring member of the month, character of the month, thread of the month, and relationship of the month! Relationship of the month doesn't have to be romantic, either. We’re treating it as an intense relationship; enemies, friends, or lovers to allow more relationships to see the spotlight!


We’ll be taking nominations for our first OTMs now! To learn more, click HERE!


Curse of the Wildblood!
We have a fresh new curse for you all! Cursed with the ability to only use the four core elements and forced to specialize, Wildbloods are attuned to nature and tend to live reclusive lives as a result.


For more info on this curse, and the other curses of Antarsia, HERE!


Harpies!
A new species has made its way to Antarsia: the harpy! We have a fresh take on this classical myth, and we hope you enjoy them!


For more information about harpies, click HERE!


Flora!
This has been a long time in the making, but we finally have flora of Antarsia! These are some of the more unique plants among the realm. Many of these were member suggestions, and it’s been so much fun bringing them to life!


Click HERE to view our new flora!


Fauna!
We’ve been working hard to expand the creatures of Antarsia! These are some of the more fantastic and magical creatures found around the realm of Antarsia. Dangerous, beautiful, some sometimes downright weird, we hope you enjoy these fanciful creatures and what they’ll bring to the world.


Click HERE to view our new creatures!



Suggestions!
As always we value member input! If there’s something you want to see on Antarsia but isn’t here, head on over to our Suggestions board and tell us what you’d like to see! It could be a new species, item, city--it’s only limited by your imagination.
