Beware, brave adventurers, for this Fall & Halloween season brings forth a chilling tale of darkness and intrigue. Throughout the land, the graveyards have become overrun by hordes of the undead. Skeletons, Zombies, and a new fiend known as the Butchers haunt these cursed grounds, hungry for the souls of the living.

The shadows grow longer, the nights darker, and the crypts more treacherous. As you embark on this chilling adventure, remember that the spirits of Halloween are watching, and they reward those who dare to embrace the darkness. 🍂 🌕👻🎃🦃

[Town Crier Announcement]
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Something stirs in the ruined town of Old Haven.
Peasants, Famers, Merchants, Nobles, and Adventurers, alike, all tell the same tale!
"The ruined town--Old Haven--is overrun with undead, as thick as castle walls," says a noble lady; just returned from her daily horse ride.
"There are odd things going on in that town. T'were, flashy lights at night, when there were no storms. Tis a spooky sight I tellz yah...," recalled a merchant on his way to New Haven, to purchase goods.
"It called itself [Drelgor]. Or was it [The Impaler]. I truly can't remember, as I was running into the night so fast, after it appeared," mentioned a wandering peasant.
"Saw the undead before all this I did, but not in such a swarm as this," said a local Farmer.
"T'was true, all that was said about the goings on in Old Haven. Believe me, if it were not for a pair of helpful travelers, a lady Doctor and an Abbot, I would surely not be here to tell you," bemoaned a bloodied Adventurer.
You heard it here, first, goodly folk. Something stirs near the ruined village of Old Haven.
Just follow the road East, out of New Haven, if you dare to see what lurks in the night, for yourself.
'Old Haven' will now be a place to: fast gain skills, complete some (custom) quests, and collection point for LRC suit pieces/accessories.
There are (2) six piece LRC sets--one for Humans/Elves and one for Gargoyles--each with a 4 piece (non-set) accessory kit to fill in some of those early adventuring gaps.
Staff and I would like to thank you all for your support of our Strange-Earth vision. Be well and adventure safe.

Get ready for some exciting updates to enhance your gameplay experience!
We're thrilled to announce that we're bringing some major changes to the drops in-game. From now on, dragon claws will be dropping in place of the Essenceofdragonflames. Not only does this make them stackable, but it also makes room for new exciting possibilities! And don't worry, all past Essenceofdragonflames drops will remain in-game as art decor, so you can still appreciate their beauty.
As if that wasn't exciting enough, we're also introducing a brand new custom mini champ spawn for MastersOfArts. The location is currently located in both the lands of Trammel and Felucca , so get ready to explore and embark on a thrilling adventure!
We understand how tedious crafting can be, so we're introducing a new feature that dynamically pulls resources from storage keys when available. This will save you time and effort, so you can focus on what you do best - crafting and creating!
And last but not least, we've finally managed to patch the back-end spawner bug that was causing headaches for our staff. So now we can all breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy the game even more!
Stay tuned for more exciting updates, including the highly anticipated Taming bulk order deeds! And if you wish to exchange your past Essenceofdragonflames for the new stackable dragon claw, simply visit the Luna bank exchange stones.
