Must Roleplay and fight through the desolate wastelands of F13. Fight 4 Loot Minimum "Diseased Ones" per player Roleplay entering Demon's End. Complete either option Route. Short or Long Route Roll the dice to find which Boss to fight (Unaffected by LD bonuses) LD:1-5 - Famine LD:6-10 - War LD:11-15 - Death LD:16-20 - Pestilence Defeat Boss and Roleplay the ending. Don't Let Miraak's HP reach 1 or Quest is failed. Summary: After the Fallen Event, Miraak is found outside the inaccessible chapel if this specific quest is taken. After being confronted, he explains to the players, "I require your assistance. Some time ago when I was under Artamiel's influence, I placed a powerful seal of corruption in what once was the largest city of this world. I understand now that it must be destroyed if we plan to put an end to the Corruption of this world. It seems that the Angel's power didn't lift it and we require to remove it directly" Once the player accepts, another Health Bar will appear under the party leader's with the username Miraak. He will give the player time to prepare before setting out into the desolate floor. After the players and Miraak make their way through the wasteland and arrive at Demon's End he will explain to them that they have two options. They could either charge straight ahead to the problem at hand, or make their way around, searching for anything not destroyed by the corruption. Once the players reach the center of town, they will find their way to the largest building in the city. He will lead them to a side entrance where he will use his magic to temporarily lift the rubble blocking the door. Once inside, players will find themselves in a very large open room where everything has been thrashed. A malevolent aura rests within the room, even though none of the diseased are inside. Miraak, who is shaking, tells you to stay put as he moves to the center of the room. He kneels to the floor to examine a large red glowing seal that covers the center of the floor, a circle with a 10 meter diameter. As soon as he goes to use an incantation to remove it, it explodes, throwing Miraak back to your side. While Miraak appears okay, a shadowy figure now stands in the center of the room. Miraak will gasp as he says the name of the being, sounding frightened. Ending: After the boss has been defeated, instead of shattering, it will crumble to dust and float away in the air, any remaining Diseased will flee. Miraak will take one last look at the seal before turning to the players. "I am afraid there is nothing to be done. I set this powerful seal, but it has been festering here ever since, growing in strength. While I believe it is at its limit and will progress no further, there is nothing we can do with it. It would be best to leave and never return. While we may have defeated it, it will simply return. Famine, War, Death, and Pestilence will always remain. I am afraid to say there is nothing we can do, it would be best to return. Come, place your hand upon me and I will return us to Angel's Point" Miraak will wait until each player places a hand on him, and once done so shall teleport all of them to Angel's Point. Failed Ending As Miraak's HP would normally fall to zero, a white light flashes and it remains with a sliver of health. He looks to the players that fight with him, worry in his eyes. He looks to them and says, "Sorry, but we must retreat." He raises his staff and slams it into the ground, each of the players being engulfed in a blue light. When the light fades, they are in front of the chapel in angel's point. "I am afraid each of us were unprepared. Now that we know what we are up against, we should take time and prepare for another excursion some other time" With that, Miraak would turn and leave, entering the inaccessible chapel. Routes: After reaching Demon's End, a player may decide from one of two routes. Short, and Long Route. Short Long Route <<Miraak>> A support to the players within the quest aiding them. His purpose is to help cleanse the corruption of the world to atone for the Sins he had previously made. He is found to be wielding a staff with a golden cross at the top of it. He is kind and patient, but quite cocky when it comes to a normal battle. Dialogue If a player mentions the Fallen Event or attacking players, he will bow his head and apologize. Afterwards, he will say he has learned an grown from those past mistakes. If a player mentions doing the quest previously with him on repeat runs, he will have no memory of doing so and frown at the player. For RP purposes, Miraak will have no reaction to anything given to him in terms of information about the quest. If a player were to attack him, he would say that he forgives them and teleport out.

    Patch Notes: [2.6.1] Hotfix Update

    Floor Changes: In the aftermath of the recent Event Bosses, the corruption that had wracked Floor 13 was halted and life has started to adjust in response. As such, Floor 13 has new quests and has been revamped. Look for its Floor Description in this thread. A quest has also been added to the Floor. Parry (Clarification): Under the current wording, Parry's effect lasts until the user is hit with a successful attack. The energy is spent when the Parry skill is used and the cooldown starts when the effect is procced. General Rule Changes: SP Refunding Rules have been revamped: Mods no longer count towards the monthly SP limit. (You still need to pay 1,000 Col per SP you refund) You must refund SP used in Unique Skills (until then, you cannot use that chunk of SP). Skill Changes: Hiding: Removed Rank 3 base damage upgrade (Rank 5 instead gives +1 DMG when attacking from stealth) Mod: Vanish Now costs 5 Energy. Block: New Rank 1 Mod: Mark Cost: 8 SP Active: Post Action Cooldown: 2 Turns Cost: 5 Energy Effect: Effect: Roll a BD and add 2. The target’s next raw attack roll must meet or exceed the result or target the user [of mark] instead of their intended target [of the attack]. For AoE attacks, this applies to all rolls of that attack (attacks are still treated separately for the usage of MIT, Thorns, etc.). The target attacking someone besides the user will also consume the mark. You cannot have a mark and parry active at the same time. The mark will be removed if the target enters stealth (this skill has no cooldown if mark is removed due to target entering stealth). Description: You mark an enemy, and are kept aware of what their movements are so as to stop them from reaching their targets Parry Changed cooldown to 2 turns, from 1 turn. Loot Changes: The Item Drop Table has been reworked: «Item Drop Table» All item drops are Tiered according to the floor they are obtained on.

    Floor Descriptions

    Floor 24: Floor 24 is made up entirely of water, with the only way of transportation between each of the floating islands are small, narrow bridges. Most of the Islands have man-made and created with the intent of farming and agriculture, while others have been made for fighting and training it's guards. Many of the Islands are held up by small but strong pinpoint bars that sink deep into the water. The water itself is seemingly depthless, never seeming to end in the depths of it, and countless with and monsters beneath the surface that could appear at any moment. The bridges are made up of steel and wood, small bits of wear and tear on the wood can be seen, but are kept strong enough for players to walk on safely without any worries of it breaking beneath them The Main Settlement of the 24th floor is Paraneze, a completely man-made island made much larger than any of the other islands. On the top of the island, there are many small buildings, withered down by the sea-salt in the air around them, but still gleaming a brilliant white against the sandy shores. All of the buildings have a red roof, making it easy to see them and to know where the main settlement is located compared to the rest of the floor. In the center of the town is a giant Colosseum that takes up a large portion of the island. It is usually used for the warriors of the floor to train and fight in combat against many creatures that can be caught throughout the floor. The inhabitants of the 24th floor are very noble people, who work hard to provide for their families and fight for fun on days where the leader of their people opens up the Colosseum for them to use and fight in. They usually all stand at about six feet tall, then woman possibly a little shorter than that, and they are all well-built warriors and farmers. The ruler of this land is an old and wise man who helped to build the first island, and he helps to rule the people with a kind heart, but with an iron fist. The monsters of this floor range from large sea creatures to creatures that can fly. The biggest of these being a Griffon, a very rare sight to see but still alive. The more common creatures are Flying Fish, Sea Serpents, and Large Crabs that coat the beaches Seasons: Summer Temperature: 23-33°C Weather: Usually Sunny or Partly Cloudy <<The Colosseum>> A very large structure found in the center of Paraneze, The Colosseum is a place built for any sort of combat the people wish to fight with. The structure is a Glistening white, with a red roof such as the rest of the buildings in Paraneze. It's withered down, and the steps have started to crack due to the many steps that have been taken on it, but the building still stands as a monument to those who worked to survive in this oceanic floor. It's kept clean and pristine, a group of people dedicated to keeping the Colosseum a place of high standard. <<Raitoburū Bay>> A beach off the main town of Paraneze, this is usually a hot spot for parties and dates for people of all ages. The calming waves lap over the soft sand found here, cascaded from the waves overlapping the shore for a long time. The name of the beach translates to "Light Blue Bay," Which it's named after the light blue waters found here that are famously refreshing for the people of this floor. There are a few beach blankets and umbrellas set up around the bay for people to use as they wish to sunbathe and relax. Finding the Labyrinth: Finding the Labyrinth on Floor 24 requires a scouting party to reach a total of 100 LD in a scouting thread"
  9. <<Bosses, Skills & Enhancements Update>> SAO-RPG Patch 2.6 Teleport Crystals (Clarification): Teleport Crystals take a post action to use, at which point they immediately teleport the player [out of combat] to the specified area/settlement, in the same turn. The previous ruling, in which the player did not teleport away until the start of their next turn is incorrect. Our apologies for any confusion regarding this mechanic! General Rule Changes: Labyrinth Scouting rules have been revamped. Searching for the labyrinth is now a group effort, and no longer relies on a singular roll. Scouting parties will now total their LD in a pool that persists throughout the scouting thread until a total is reached. Searching can be rolled starting on the 20th post, on a cooldown of 5 personal posts (3 with the Reveal mod). Scouting parties are limited to a max of 4 players in a thread, which must declare those participating. Using a Blank Dungeon Map increases this limit to 6. "Field Boss" has largely been changed to "Labyrinth Guardian". Labyrinth Guardians are fought in a separate thread, facilitated by staff. If multiple parties succeed in finding the Labyrinth, other players are permitted to join the battle. Scouting bonuses have been adjusted to +2 SP for the player who contributed the highest LD total in a Scouting thread and +1 SP for the player who contributed the second highest LD total. Guardians will award bonus rewards for all those who participate. Players who participated in the previous floor boss receive a head-start of 48 hours for creating threads on the new floor. Boss Raid Rotations have changed: A rotation will consist of a single boss post followed by each player taking their own actions. Party rules still apply for certain actions, and the boss will typically take action against each party during its turns. Boss raid rotation time limits have been increased from 48 hours to 72 hours. Post Actions (In Combat): Trading a single item to a player while in combat is now a free action. Trading more than one item still requires a full post action, but doing so allows for multiple items to be handed off to multiple people in a single turn. Sword Art Changes: Katana: [Rank 1]: Ukifune has been increased to a [2x Stun] (5 Energy), from a [1x Stun] (4 Energy). [Rank 5]: San Gae has been increased to a [15x] (15 Energy), from a [14x] (14 Energy). [Rank 5]: Iai has been increased to a [x11 Stun] (14 Energy), from a [x9 Stun] (12 Energy). [Rank 5]: Amatsu no Homura has been decreased to a [x8 AoE] (8+ Energy), from a [x9 AoE] (9+ Energy). Skill Changes: Hiding Now has additional effects at Rank 3/4/5 when attacking from stealth: Increases base DMG by +1 Rank 3 Increases the duration of DoT effects by 1 turn at Rank 4 Increases base DMG by +1 at Rank 5 Searching Mod: Reveal Adjusted the affect on searching for a Labyrinth. Now reduces the personal post cooldown between searches from 5 to 3, instead of reducing the interval of total posts in the thread. First Aid Mod: Purify Removed the healing done by Purify. Increased the removal of status conditions from 1 to "All". First Aid Mod: Field Medic Cooldown reduced to 2 Turns, from 3 Turns. Energy cost adjusted to 12 EN + 3 EN per player healed (excluding the user), instead of 20% of the user's total EN. First Aid Mod: Barrier Reworked into a 3-rank mod available at the 3rd Rank of First Aid. SP cost adjusted to 2/3/5 instead of 10. Energy Cost adjusted to (6/8/10 EN) + 2 EN per player affected (excluding the user), instead of 12 EN. Cooldown increased to 2 Turns, from 1 Turn. Effect now reduces final damage from all sources done to the party by 5% per rank for one turn. Howl Reduced hate generation to 2, from 3. Reduced energy cost to 8, from 10. Howl Mod: Focused Howl Reduced hate generation to 4, from 5. Reduced energy cost to 6, from 8. Meditation Increased energy recovery to (5*Tier) or (3*Tier) when interrupted, from (3*Tier) or (2*Tier) when interrupted. Reduced cooldown to 3 Turns, from 5 Turns. Disguise* Effect has been changed. Now grants +1 EVA for one turn as a free action. Cooldown reduced to 3 Turns, from 5 Turns. Concentration* Removed target restrictions. Effect must now be declared during the roll. Cooldown reduced to 3 Turns, from 5 Turns. Weapon Mod: Quick Change Has been changed to a skill, from a Weapon Mod. Effect has been changed. Now allows the user to instantly equip, unequip or swap an item in their battle ready inventory. Clarification: Quick Change can be used to swap a two-handed weapon for a one-handed weapon and a shield in a single use. New Skill: Extended Mod Limit 3 Ranks Cost: [Unskilled] -> Rank 1 - Novice = 2 SP [Novice] -> Rank 2 - Expert = 3 SP [Expert] -> Rank 3 - Grandmaster = 5 SP It takes a total of 10 SP to Grandmaster this mod.

    [Announcements] Minor Housing update

    Selling Rooms! We have had downgrading plot for a while now, but now we have added selling rooms! The issue came up that a player could downgrade their plots, but the rooms wouldn't be refunded at all. It has now been decided that you can sell rooms for 75% of their original cost. This means that each non-upgraded room can be sold for 7,500 col since it cost its normally 10,000. A Upgraded room would return 26,250 col as that is 75% of 35,000. Selling Entire House When selling an entire house, you must also downgrade the plot to zero when doing this. Take the total cost of the house and subtract from it the cost of your current plot size of land. You can find those totals on the buying side of the housing reference. Take 75% of all of your room cost(What is left after you take out plot cost) and that is how much you receive back from selling the rooms. Finally, look to the downgrading plot and find exactly how much you receive from downgrading your plotsize to zero. Add that amount to the room total and you have how much you receive back. This update won't apply to those who are just trying to have a house, just those who are trying to sell/downgrade their houses. This update has been added to the bottom of the housing reference.

They speak word of a rumored city known as the Vale of Ruin that lies far out of the Dark Elves' hold, where they would be safe and welcomed. The dark elf couple tell you that they have come up with two plans to get them out of the Underdark and to the Vale of Ruin.

He claims that his wife had gone off to war against the Forest Elves on the surface, and her failure to return only hinted that she would no longer be living. The man clings on to a small string of hope, however, and asks if you could travel to the surface and search through the Queen’s Tower to find out if she still lives, or if she perished during the fighting.

    Floor Descriptions

    <<Floor 23>> The wars between the Dark Elves and the Forest Elves raged on for centuries with no clear winner in sight. Many lives were lost on each side, yet both factions continued to fight for control of the Kriit Woodland. Once the Forest Elves had gained a foothold of the forests, they did not stop to wipe out the Dark Elves from the surface and force them back into the Underdark where their Drow ancestors once lived. Queen Lun’Rael, the watchful ruler of the Dark Elves, who watched over the wars from her high tower, felt that the fighting had gone on long enough. With a sacrificial act, Lun’Rael used a dark magic passed down by generations in her family, wiping the entire battlefield of life, including her own. The remaining Dark Elves who fled to the Underdark were unaware of their Queen’s sacrifice she had made for her people, and it would remain as such. The Council of The Queen, who had sought to overthrow her for years, took over rule of the Dark Elves behind the guise of a still living Queen Lun’Rael. The group spread lies of the dangers of the Surface World, and banned their people from returning to the surface, and return to living as the Drow once had. Information on the war’s true conclusion is kept locked down, not known by anyone besides The Council. For role play purposes, if a player tries to tell the Dark Elves of the Underdark about what the Surface looks like, they will not believe you « The Underdark » A network of cavernous ruins is the place that many of the Dark Elves call home. The Underdark spans nearly the entire length of the Floor, without a hint of sunlight able to penetrate the tall cave ceilings. The ruins themselves appear foreign--faded scripture and other relics left behind by another ancient race are scattered throughout what is now the Dark Elves' domain. The Elf NPCs are distrustful and wary of unfamiliar faces. Those not of pure Dark Elven blood are outsiders, and are treated as such by most. Seasons: None Temperature: Varies Between 5°C and 20°C (41°F and 68°C) Weather: Damp Players receive a -1 to all BD rolls while in the Underdark due to lack of light. (Unless <<Night Vision>> is active) « The Surface »: Above the Underdark lies a vast land consisting mainly of forests and ruins that show the scars of war and whatever terrifying power that ended it. The first area that players will find themselves in upon leaving the Dark Elf city is the remains of the Queen’s Tower and fortress. Not much remains of the stone structure, aside from what is left of the Queen’s Tower, the same goes for Kriit Woodland. Most of the trees and other plant life had been wiped out. Traveling about an hour’s journey in either direction from the entrance to the Underdark will show that life still does exist on the floor, with vast forests and mountain ranges. Seasons: Spring, Autumn Temperature: Varies Between 12°C and 26°C (54°C and 79°C) Weather: Typically sunny or partly cloudy, occasional rain. Low wind. Low humidity Players receive a -1 to all LD rolls while on the Surface due to the barrenness of the land. Main Settlement: « Kalanaes » The capital city of the Dark Elves that resides within the Underdark where players first spawn. Simple buildings composed of clay, stone, and even tents make up homes and merchant stalls. Massive pillars runs through the open areas, with dim lamp-like devices providing just enough light for the denizens that are accustomed to such dark environments. The Dark Elves who live in Kalanaes show you no kindness, and are very distrusting of those that are not of Dark Elf descent. Points of Interest: «Kriit Wasteland»: What was once filled with rich soul and flora is now nothing but a ravaged wasteland. Was of the main source of conflict between the Dark Elves and the Forest Elves of the East. In the center is the Queen’s Fortress and tower, which is left in shambles, though the opening towards the Underdark still remains. For miles from this epicenter, is dead forest, wiped out by what almost seems like a powerful fire, or some other dark power. « Ydalin Forest » A massive, sprawling forest nearly untouched by unnatural forces. The land once was abundant with Forest Elves, but they seem to have abandoned what little they held of the forest when the wars for Kriit Woodland had begun. Plants and wildlife are abundant throughout the forest, making it an ideal hunting ground for the few Forest Elves who still live in the area, occupying tents and other nomadic shelter. « Elven Glade » In the midst of Ydalin Forest lies a sacred place where nature thrives. Tall trees surround the glade while warm sunlight pierces through their branches. The area functions as a safe zone for players. Legends say that couples who travel to the glade at just the right time may receive a blessing from Mother Nature herself. « The Vale of Ruin » You may hear the name of this area muttered under the breaths of elves in the Underdark. On the Surface, far past what remains of Kirrit Woodland and outside of the Dark Elve’s hold lies a tiny run-down city fashioned out of the remains of what might have been a bustling town many centuries ago. Those who are forced to live harsh lives are the ones who have been exiled or otherwise shunned from the Underdark. Elves with 'impure' blood are the most prominent, but the town is open to welcome any kind of outcast, from humans to beastmen. NPCs: Dark Elves | Half-Elves | Humans | Beastmen Unique Monsters: Crazed Beastmen, Forest Elf Hunters, Dark Elf Extremists Quests: <<Search and Rescue>> <<Escaping the Underdark>> <<Uzegke the Mighty>>
