Urgent: Legends of Aria is leaving Steam

Notice from July 2022

New players should avoid Steam and use the normal standalone version of the game.

The server's first rental properties have been setup and are now available for renting. There are 9 units available just Southwest of Moonglow Bank. More properties will be setup throughout the world as time permits with different shapes and sizes. You can see more details about how rental properties work here: https://wiki.shardsofbritannia.com/en/housing#rental-property

  • Fixed an issue with Gravedigging not working in some cases

Make sure to log out and back in to receive all of these updates, thank you!

Vendor Rental deeds have been added to Moonglow's Lycaeum where you can rent a vendor until July 1st (deadline extended to August 1st) for a one-time fee & we will plan to host more Bazaar events periodically in the future.

These vendors do not charge daily fees or commission and are only available until July 1st (deadline extended to August 1st), after which they will pack their worn equipment & for sale contents into your account vault. If you have a vendor that has been packed up, you will receive a notification immediately or the next time you log in.

The Account Vault is where packed goods from Rental Properties and Player Vendors will be stored if you fail to pay rent or vendor fees. At any time you can use the /vault command to retrieve any stored rental or vendor property

Note: Non-Bazaar player vendors will now also handle their equipped objects when being dismissed, previously the equipped objects would vanish when the vendor did. Now, when packing to the vault, any equipped objects on vendors will be packed along with the for sale items, or if the owner is dismissing the vendor, any remaining equipped objects will land on the ground to prevent deletion.

Hotfixes:

  • Fixed an issue preventing Bazaar Vendor owners from collecting gold from them
  • Fixed an issue preventing Bazaar Vendors from appearing on the Vendor Search results
  • Changed the color of Bazaar vendor names to Yellow for better legibility

Moonglow is now open for business!

Player Vendors

  • Player Vendors & Pet Brokers now have an option called Relocate which will allows owners to pack them to a deed for moving to another house or another location, this option costs 5,000gp
  • House owners now have the ability to upgrade the Vendor Limit from 1 to 2 for a one-time 50,000gp fee, this extra slot can be useful for people who wish to own both a Player Vendor & Pet Broker while keeping the house Private, and it only applies while the house is Private
  • Vendor & storage upgrades to houses will now persist when Relocating a house

Bards & Bands

  • Equipped instruments now have 2 ability buttons: Play Music & Use Last Bard Ability
  • Playing music using this new ability will offer a continuous stream of music, depending on your skills; activating the Play ability again while mid-stream will attempt to gain skills, just like using the instrument does normally (you can still use the instrument like normal to gain)
  • Bards that are playing music can optionally have others listen to them; To listen, right click a bard that is playing music and use Listen To Music
  • Bards that are in a group with each other can play together, get all 3 instruments going for a full band!
  • Note: Only the bamboo flute, lute & drum can be equipped, regular flutes cannot

Campfires

  • Kindling will now work when inside guarded areas but will be unable to upgrade for camping unless out of town
  • The base fire built from kindling is now a smaller version until it is reinforced via Camping & this smaller fire can be used for cooking

General

  • The Q & E button slots are now hidden when no abilities are present in them

Several updates to faction pillar conflicts are now live. Check out the full notes here.

https://wiki.shardsofbritannia.com/en/updates/release-notes-may-30-2022

Each faction now has a faction base in Britannia and each faction's faction stone has been moved to their base. Shadowlords can find their base, Stonegate, to the north east of Yew in the Deep Forest. Minax can find their base, Castle Minax, to the east of Skara Brae in Spiritwood Forest. True Britannians can find their base, Castle Britannia, to the north east of Britain along the road to the swamp.

These bases are still under construction and will be increasingly important to factions as development progresses.

Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause skill gain to fail when over a skill's daily cap. This issue should be resolved after the next restart.

  • Fixed an issue causing a container's weight not to be updated right away when adding to existing stacks inside of it
