  1. <tr> <td colspan=2><font size=-1> Factions

    In order to promote accessibility and invigorate Factions, we’ve made several changes and fixed some bugs. Additionally, Factions will play an important role in the Warriors of Destiny plot arc. <ul> [*]Faction size limit and load balancer removed: individual factions can grow to any size. Previously capped at 200. [*]Multiple characters from the same account may join the same faction [*]An account cannot have characters in different factions on the same shard [*]Removed 30 day character age requirement [*]“Young” players cannot join factions [*]“Young” players will be removed from guilds that join factions [*]One vote in faction elections per account [*]Only one character per account may run in the elections [*]Quit time reduced from 7 days to 3 days [/list] House Placement Changes

    This publish implements several changes to prevent house placement exploits.
    <ul> [*]15 day character age requirement to place or trade a house [*]Water barrels/magic fields/etc will no longer block house placement [*]When a house is placed on top of a moongate, the placer will get a message about placement being blocked, and the moongate will be destroyed (at both ends.) <ul> IDOC behavior (houses that collapse through decay) [*]When an IDOC drops, housing cannot be placed on the lot for a random amount of time [*]Items that drop from the IDOC will have protections against scripted looting [/list] [*]House placement tool will have a cooldown if used too many times in a given time period [*]Must now wait one hour after building a home before demolishing it (previously 15 minutes) [/list]

    Spring Cleaning 2008

    Ah, how time flies. Spring has come once again to Britannia, but the sweet smell of blossoming flowers outside our homes can’t belie the memories of battles fought long so very long ago. Or is that the chest overflowing with Ophidian weapons in the corner? Or maybe it’s the bag of cursed artifacts hidden upstairs?

    Time to cleanup, Britannia!
    <ul> [*]Publish 52 institutes the first round of Spring Cleaning collections and rewards [*]Four NPCs around the world collect items in exchange for tickets [*]The tickets can be redeemed for rewards in a new community collection [/list] <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1"> <tr> <td colspan="3"> <div align="center">Turn-in items</div> </td> <tr> <td> <td width="38%"> <div align="left">Copper Shilling

    The Shadow Lords have evidently made it to Stratics! So much for the Rift.
