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

The server is coming back online with the latest patch applied (see patch notes for details), sorry for the extra downtime but thanks for your patience.

Savages appear to have defeated the barbarians and conquered the swamp east of Skara Brae!

The server will be going offline in approximately 10 minutes to apply the recent patch shown in the Patch Notes. Expected downtime is ~20 minutes. Thanks for your patience!

Update: The server is still offline and we're working on applying the patch still. Downtime will last slightly longer than expected, but we're almost done! Thanks again for your patience.

Please be sure to check out our Easter highlights video for 2022! Thanks Hoax for putting this together!

Just a reminder that the Easter Events will be coming to an end after the daily restart, roughly 3.5hr from the time of this post. The Easter Vendor will remain for 2 more weeks allowing you some more time to put all your eggs in one basket. We hope you've had fun this holiday and look forward to doing more fun stuff in the near future. Thanks for your participation!

The Easter Egg hunt has commenced! Easter Egg Nests will be scattered throughout the overworld for you to find. Double click the eggs to try opening them for fun surprises and goodies!

Collect Fabled Carrots to spend at the Easter Vendor who has been seen hopping around the Paws Stables & Farm, just south-west of Britain. They will also buy some of the items you may get from the eggs in exchange for more Fabled Carrots.

The Egg Hunt will be live until April 26th and we will try our best to do some planned and/or spontaneous events throughout the week.

Happy Easter!

Something is amiss, a new maze has appeared in the middle of Hedge Maze! Perhaps you should hop around and see what you can find out. Note: Any existing spawns inside Hedge Maze are unavailable during this time, for the event. Also, click-to-move is now disabled while inside of Hedge Maze.

Unfortunately, there was an issue that forces us to roll back the world save to the last server restart, about 1 hour since the time of this post. Sorry for the inconvenience, we'll be returning online soon though. Thanks for your patience.

Just a reminder, anytime we post a deadline or a start time for something, it is always subject to change and you should expect there to be delays, always, but hope for the best. Our team consists of people from all over the globe, which may cause delays, and we are volunteering our free time, so we do our best within our means to meet deadlines.

For week-long events there is no specific time we will deploy and active the activities. Unfortunately Discord forces us to pick a specific start time when creating Events in Discord, and so usually we'll pick 9am UTC the day that we plan to start the activities. That doesn't guarantee that 9am UTC or any other time will be when the activities start, as we will make announcements within a few hours of the activities starting.

For week-long holiday activities you are not expected to be there at the time that the activities begin. Participation is welcome throughout the entire week, and this time is allowed for those that may not be around on the day of the holiday being celebrated.

Thanks everyone for your patience and support.

We recently combined in-game help requests with feedback reports, so when you send a help request it will go into the same stream as the rest of the feedback. We've also updated the Discord Support Threads channel, adding the ability for you to create new support threads on your own, if you require assistance. It's always best to report issues in-game when possible, but if you do need more help please see the instructions in #support-threads to start a ticket. We'll do our best to reply to tickets as quickly as possible. Thanks!

To celebrate Easter, we will be hosting an Egg Hunt throughout Britannia! Find eggs and break them open and collect Fabled Carrots (or other surprises), which can be spent at the Easter Vendor in exchange for some neat gifts! We hope you have time to log in and participate and have some fun. See you there! See the details of this event: https://discord.gg/CuwaP9sbep?event=963864006546841680

Thanks to WtF Dragon from Ultima Codex for checking us out and spreading the word, we appreciate you!

We've published a Public Board on Trello showing some of the things we're aware of, working on, and considering. Check it out at https://trello.com/b/571SiY7d

We're excited to announce that Hoax has joined the team! Hoax, as some of you know, has recently contributed to the rebranding efforts of our project as well as the amazing new video trailer! Hoax will be helping with more video related tasks, Unity asset design and more! Please give Hoax a warm welcome to the team and thanks for offering to share your free time with us! <3

Recently some members of the community have started an advertising campaign for the project. Thanks to those of you that have spent time on or donated towards that campaign!

We have, however, asked those involved to allow the team to control the ad campaigns. As such, the additional Patreon page that was created by the community will cease to operate.

We will begin funding more advertising, as we have done in the past and have planned for the future, using the existing Patreon pledges. If you wish to contribute more for advertising you may edit your existing pledge, but it may not be required at this point in time.

Thanks again to all of you for your continued contributions and for your enthusiasm & passion for the project. <3

Maintenance is completed earlier than expected and the server is coming online now. Thank you again for your patience.

The server will remain offline during the next maintenance window for up to an hour while maintenance tasks are conducted. Thank you for your patience.

A new video has been released that was created by Hoax in cooperation with staff and players. Check it out on the front page of our website or at https://youtu.be/PP2lW0DpE3g

Thanks to Hoax and Transcendence for organizing and creating the video, and to beekel for the fantastic music! Thanks to everyone that contributed, your time and effort are appreciated so much!

The server is back online and ready for play! Thanks for your patience and see you in-game!

Server is offline again for a short time while we continue investigating the cause of today's crash or hang-ups, thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience! Check back shortly
