Shards of Britannia is now FREE to play! Create your account and play today.

An issue has been resolved with plot lockdowns causing items being released from a plot to not be removed from the Lockdown List. This affected things like plot re-sizing, as well as the number of lockdowns being reported incorrectly.

Existing pet deeds were originally scheduled to expire on 1/1/2020 but as you know we had delayed that to give people more time to claim them. Existing deeds will now expire on 6/15/2020 and existing deeds will be removed from the world at that time.

A new version of the client has been made available and the server is now up to date. Please make sure you have the latest client installed, thank you!

Several performance and server stability fixes from Britannia have been applied to the live server.
- Fixed long standing server crash (Also affectionately known as poison bug to some)
- Improved performance of housing.
- Fixed a long standing bug that was causing greatly increased skill gains for the majority of skills. This is a return to originally intended values and not a balancing adjustment.

  • After suffering countless defeats over the last few months, Fangorn has recruited more capable Generals.
    - Fangorn will now not chase his enemies indefinitely

Welcome to May everyone!

Just want to drop by and give all of our dedicated supporters a big round of applause and thank you for continuing to support the project! In the past month we have been working on optimizing our infrastructure to prepare for the future, and we have also spent a lot of time cumulatively working towards the rest of our goals in the push to Britannia. Thanks to everyone that has helped with testing and participating in Test Center events. We'll keep working our hardest and hope to keep making you proud.

We know a lot of you are waiting to find out more about what to expect with the map change and many other changes coming with it, and we appreciate your patience while we continue to work all of that out. Thanks for being with us and remaining patient through our growth!

We are back online. Thanks for your patience.

During the next reboot window, which is approximately 3 hours from the timestamp of this message, the live server will remain offline while we perform some back end maintenance. This will take up to one hour.

Thank you for your patience.

With the pandemic currently affecting the whole planet, we just want to remind everyone about the LOU housing policy.

If you are in any position where you cannot get to the game for an extended time, please reach out to us, and we can consider your request to put your house into a Vacation Hold to prevent it from decaying in the normal timeframe.
