September 24, 2022 16:03: Scheduled Lockdown Reminder!

Hi guys - this is your reminder that the game is going into the regularly scheduled lockdown for a week after the daily tick runs between Sunday 25th and Monday 26th.

We really want to have the game return with a new feature like last time, but we know dev time is going to be limited next week so this may not be possible.

Hope everyone has a good break!

Report Guidance - cont.

When should I mark a report as urgent?
Reports should only be marked as urgent if not addressing them immediately may warrant a game-wide lockdown. This is typically if staff not looking at it immediately may result in your character dying, being injured, or losing items when they otherwise should not have. Please remember that important does not equal urgent. We will always try to see to important reports as soon as possible - for example if your character has fallen incapable when they should not have - but it should only be marked as urgent if the situation is time sensitive. For example, if you believe they are at risk of being killed, or if people are robbing their belongings when they should not have been able to. Remember that you can put in a second report if the situation has become urgent.

Should I hibernate while staff investigate my report?
In short - no. We have seen an increasing number of players choosing to hibernate their characters while they wait for staff to investigate a scene. This is not necessary. You should only hibernate your character if you cannot roleplay for any reason. Please remember that you can FTB if needed. If something significant happens to your character which staff agree requires intervention due to poor etiquette - for example, if they were killed without roleplay - then we will step in using gods or other means to reverse this. You should always play on in the meantime as long as you feel comfortable doing so, because this will make everything feel more natural, and hibernating your character also makes them more considerably vulnerable.

Apologies for the essay - and any questions about the above then please let us know!

September 12, 2022 05:08: Reporting Guidance

Hellooo Marosia community! So, first and foremost, I want to apologise for all of the bugs recently. I know it can be frustrating when things do not work, and I am sincerely grateful for your diligence in reporting and your patience with us while we work to fix these.

We are now in the phase of "weird bugs that are hard to fix", mostly because they occur in some situations but not all. So, I wanted to put out some guidance to make our dev's lives easier. Please do try to include this information in your bug reports because it will make finding the problem quicker - though do not worry if you do not have the time for all the details. A basic report is still better than no report. While I am doing this, I figured I would also include some other guidance too!

Bug Reports
Please format the title as "Bug - [bug type]". So "Bug - Project Progression"
Where is the bug happening? Inside, outside, vehicle.
What is the in-game time stamp for the bug? When did it start - when did it stop? If you don't know, then you can say when you noticed it.
What was your character doing at the time of the bug?
If related to projects - what type of project is it?
Have you noticed this happening across your other characters, or only this one?

Rules and etiquette breaches
Please format the title as "Rule/Etiquette break - [occurrence]"
Do include character nicknames, in-game timestamps, and please include a copy/paste of the part of the post[s] in question which you believe broke the rules.

Complaints
A rare occurrence - but all complaints about the game are visible to admins only, and we endeavor to be as transparent as possible in our replies. I understand having a rant to friends when you are unhappy about something - but please remember that things are unlikely to ever change unless you take the steps to alert the admins so we can look into it. Please do not think you are being a burden. We are not infallible, and sometimes things are overlooked that should not have been. If something is not sitting right with you - be it a report reply, a game decision, or an interaction you have seen in the server - then please do put in that report. You can request a private chat if you would prefer to talk it through.
September 11, 2022 17:42: New Lorelings
Hello hello, Marosians! The new lorelings have now been selected and have already been put to work on various tasks to liven up the game. Please welcome @NecroKonchu , @trina , @EmteeOh, @Akki , @NordicForge and @Ta|| to the loreling position - and if they do well, they will eventually be offered a full loremaster position. While it is possible to hold more than one position on staff, if this requires shuffling within the ranks in the future, rest assured that we will reach out once again to the playerbase. Should we at any point require new lorelings, we may still reach out to applicants from this round who did not make it in!

I also want to give a huge thank you to all of you who applied - I am stoked to see so many people offer their help to support the game, even if not all of you were selected for a trial. Please know your enthusiasm is recognized and greatly appreciated!
September 2, 2022 07:10: Democracy Update
The way democracies and parliaments work has had an overhaul: Votes now use their own system instead of projects, and last a set amount of time. Once a vote is initiated, eligible voters have half an in-game year (120 hours, or 5 real life days) to cast their vote on the Town Sign menu. Once completed, a vote is only valid if three or more people voted. If there are fewer than three eligible voters, no vote is initiated, and the change is instead made directly like in a monarchy. Additionally, it is now possible to initiate a vote to take over a currently occupied position, where before one had to wait for the person holding that position to either step down themselves or die.

The free-to-play collaborative story.

Marosia is a free text based roleplaying game. It is an RPG in a fantasy setting with open world society simulation mechanics. The player can create a character through instant spawning, or through the family system with a selection of different races. Once your character steps into the world, what you do is up to you, as the freedom to play whatever sort of character you want allows infinite possibilities.

Experience the excitement of playing out a character's entire life, and living through their moments. Understand the world around you within a text based environment, where words will sweep you into a new land of imagination and possibility. Feel the pleasures of your character's new discoveries; weapons, armor, tools, and resources are waiting to be used and created for your character's agendas.

Fall in love, start a family, raise an empire, begin a business, create a religion, discover treasure, lead a colony, create a government, plan a plot, become a thief, and change the world. It's up to you. The world is full of magic, surprises, gods, and demons. Where will your character fit within it?
