April 29, 2021 16:56: Upcoming event
Hello everyone, the loremasters are in need of players willing to play a temporary special character for a special in game event. Do not worry if you have full slots or a character creation timer currently on your account as that can be waived for this special event. The loremasters need quite a few players for this event, so please don't be hesitant to put your name in the ring. If you wish to apply please send in a story report ingame with the subject line "temporary character application" and the loremasters will respond with further information. Players who get to play a temporary special character for this event will be picked raffle style, so that everyone has a fair chance. The deadline for sending in an application is 18:00 EST on Sunday, May 2nd. Please put the word "lemons" at the end of your report. Thank you for your time.
April 24, 2021 20:12: Rollback
Please be aware that at 2021-04-24 20:00 EST there was a rollback due to a game-breaking issue, bringing the game back to its last saved state on 2021-04-24 00:00 EST. This means that for your characters, nothing occured after that time, which would have been at the last legitimate daily tick. Please remember that we do not RP bugs, so do not have your characters reference them, even in the manner of 'I had this weird dream'.

Also, to the best of your ability, you must not use any information learned during the time covered by the roll back. This means that if your characters were about to be in danger, you cannot make moves to avoid that danger now. Also, if your characters learned information during the time that is being retconned, they must learn it again.

We ask for your patience and understanding as we try to make sure everything is put back to rights. If you have any questions or concerns, please submit a report. Please be understanding that increased report volume will result in increased response times. Thank you for your patience and your continued support!

April 5, 2021 11:25: April Patch Notes

April 1, 2021 04:16: April Patch Notes:
After a break in updates following the ownership change, we are now finally back to your regularly scheduled patch notes! Here's what I've been working on lately:

- Ruins have been added! After several months of hard work, this feature is finally implemented as intended. If you are on a tile with a ruin, you will find that the "Ruin" button has reappeared under the Area menu. Though ruins are intended to be dangerous and difficult to clear, the entrance room is always safe, so feel free to step inside and have a look!
-All races have had their names changed in order to make them more descriptive. While some may consider this a significant departure from the fantasy feel Marosia is known for, it is our hope that these new names will feel just as natural as the old ones in short order.
- The Community Manager will begin player reviews next week.
- Gems will no longer fall out of rocks in locations with over 5000 stone outside, to incentivise people spreading out more.
- In preparation for the coming animal overhaul, all animals older than 10 in-game years have died of old age.
- Child characters of "teen" and younger consuming alcohol will now suffer an immediate injury.
- Naga can now consume tierborns under the age of 10.
- Sanguinism can now be transmitted sexually if the ERP script is tripped.
- In order to encourage players getting along with each other, accounts will now see one random character smited for every 10 avoidances set against them.
- Fae can now only shift one body part at a time. Also, the ERP script sensitivity has been bumped up for all fae.
- In an effort to inject more engaging conflict into the game, a character's life span will increase by 10 years for every other character they kill.
- The travelling merchant has been removed, again. Please report if he resurfaces.
- All watchtowers have been retrofitted with stainless steel floors for sanitary reasons.
- We are aware of the issue of characters randomly being smote. We have decided that it is both spicy and hilarious so we will not be fixing it.
- All town leadership changes must now be settled by combat to the death.
- Gunpowder has been added to Marosia, but only for staff. Good luck everyone else!
- If you kill an admin character, you become an admin.
- Due to inflation, bribes for magic are now starting at $178 (USD)
- Elephants are no longer inside out.
- On a final note, the experiment is now complete. You will receive a debrief email in the next 3-5 working days. Thank you for your time with us.
- Made Frodge easier to find.

Thank you for playing Marosia, and for helping us make the game the best it can be!
