That's some fine land you got there. Be a shame if someone put a fence around it...

The staff are currently rejigging the way the purchase of land is handled, as it was somewhat vague and underdeveloped before. Although we strive for simplicity, the conversion of wp to land value was somewhat out of balance.

So if you're in the market for more land, hang tight pilgrim. We're working on it.

This doesn't affect people who have already bought land or who want to buy houses in cities, this is a going forward change.

Hello everyone. New feature to announce here today. While character death is something of a rarity in Standing Trials, it's still a distinct possibility. And as such, it's fairly obvious that the first three tiers of succession packages didn't offer a lot of comfort to players who do lose the characters that they have worked so long and so hard on.

While every bit helps and can be appreciated, we felt there ought to be a greater range of options for Prophets to vote for in the case of long-lived and well-developed characters who may have the misfortune of dying. Therefore, we're introducing a few more options to the potential succession awards, that will as ever be voted on by Prophets.

So going forward, we'll be introducing more advanced options for succession characters. The new succession write-up, where you can check out these changes can be found here: wiki/index.php?title=Category:Succession

Stay safe all, and strive ever onward.

Minor Rule Change.....


We've changed the rules so that Mortalborns are now able to become Ghosts. All site volunteers have voted on this, and it was agreed unanimously that it is important to have the same options open to all pcs.

As always- any questions please ask.

Hey guys. We've voted on a rule change to collaborative threads. This will be applied effective immediately going forward. The change will be reflected in an edit to the Review Queue thread.



"You may usually choose 8 Skill Knowledge from your thread after you've made a total of 3 posts. In most cases, this is the minimum. However, if the evidence of collaboration is strong enough, then a Peer Reviewer may award Collaboration Knowledge for less posts. If you feel this applies to you, identify the "additional" knowledge in your review and put forward a brief (one or two sentence) justification. For every post made after three, you gain an additional skill knowledge. Auto 15 points upon completion no matter what."

If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact either myself, Strange, or Pegasus. Thank you.

New Cycle = New Wealth Rule In Place!


Welcome to the Hot Cycle! Remember, this marks the following change to your Wealth Skills.
.
From the 1st of this Cycle (not grandfathered back - that would be too confusing) players may claim a bonus to their Wealth Thread depending on the level of their Wealth Skill. This is as follows:
Expert = + 1 WP
Master = + 3WP
GM = + 5WP
Tier 2 = + 10 WP

This bonus will be per wealth thread and will be on top of the usual wage. Players need to show their mathematical working - out in the claim. This is on top of any other bonus and does not impact the base wage at all and applies to all PCs, whether wilderness or wage-earning.

New Cycle =Travel Times Update!!!


A massive shout out to Brent Forrester's player - one of our Wiki Workers. Brent has been working away on creating some stunning new maps for us! Please check out the existing pages on the wiki which have been updated - the "main" map now has travel times on it.

Brent has also standardised our travel times which has meant that the majority of travel times have reduced. Some have stayed more or less the same. If you are travelling in this Cycle, you can grandfather in these times (we had hoped to announce this on the 1st).

We're currently working on travel time lists and these will also be coming to the wiki very soon. Huge thanks to Brent for all his hard work!!

Point Panks!
Delicious Point Panks...


Hey all! A few new items for you guys to enjoy on the point bank. Please bear in mind that some of these items may be able to be acquired via other methods in game, and that nobody is locked out for not participating in the point bank system.

This just gives an added incentive to those who contribute to their time to admin duties, reviews, and other things.

Point bank items

1. Youthening Elixir: 100 pbp: A special rejuvenating elixir that can reverse the aging process! Once imbibed, the drinker may reverse the aging process by up to 3 arcs.

2. Physical Mutation: 250 pbp: The player may design single mutation that manifests physically. This cannot confer any extra abilities, but is only for show. (such as bunny ears, a fluffy tail, etc.). Mutation must be psf'd, and should be included in a story where it's gained.

3. Mental Mutation: 200 pbp: The player may design a single mutation that affects their mind/emotional state. This does not confer any extra abilities or skills, but may be used as a way of justifying a major change in your character's mental state. Mutation must be psf'd and should be included in a story where it's gained.
If there are any questions as always contact me or your local mod.

Have a nice day!

Code! BB Code!!!!!!


The coding that we do on the site can be a bit ... tricky to understand. So - in an attempt to make your boxcodes pretty and things - here's a bit of a list of what we have. It's not exhaustive and we'd love to see more. Feel free to add to it if we've missed something, it's an open thread. Hope this is useful!

here tis!

Resources Primer!!!


Hey all!

We've put together a "Resources Primer" for those who are wishing to source their resources by means other than the Shoppe. This primer is here

The Wiki Workers are working hard behind the scenes and we will be updating already existing resources (like this) - new Resources which are developed will be following this format.

Thanks - hope that makes things easier !
