FANDOM


The purpose of this page is to mirror the announcements the GM puts out in the News & Announcements section of the main Sryth page, to provide an historical view about Sryth's development and avoid losing information about updates.

If you add an update to this page, please make sure you also post in on the appropriate forum section, and conversely. There is a dedicated page and forum thread for each year's updates. See the Game Updates page for a condensed history of Sryth development.


Posting guidelines
  • The updates will be posted as soon as they appear in the main page, in chronological order from top to bottom.
  • You must keep the GM's original wording (although fixing typos is allowed). Add links to the game's reference system using {{Reference}}. It is desirable to add links to the appropriate wiki pages/forum threads about the game sections/mechanics/locations/quests being discussed.
  • Do not add player comments to the GM's announcements. You can, however, post a summary of the update and historical details (like dates of availability for limited time events, delays on the release of the announced adventure, or its effects in the gameplay) on the Development History section of the main Game Updates page.
Formatting guidelines
  • Months will be added as Level 2 Headings (<h2> or ==)
  • Updates will be added as Level 3 Headings (<h3> or ===). When there is more than one update in an announcement, each one will also be added as a Level 3 Heading.
  • Each batch of updates will start with a Level 3 Heading stating the date of the updates in mm/dd/yy format and its status (official or unofficial) - For example 01/04/09 - Game Updates
  • Each batch of updates (several updates on the same announcement) must be separated from the rest by a horizontal rule. (<hr/> or ----)


These updates are meant for players that are more or less "current" with the circumstances of the game and the latest developments. As a consequence, some passages can be highly spoilerish and can't be edited, since these are the original GM's announcements. You've been warned.

1/3/12 - Game Update Edit

Happy New Year! Edit

A Happy New Year to all of Sryth's Brave Adventurers! Here are some of the things on the Gamemaster's slate that are expected for 2012...

  • New Adventure Log

The adventure log will be receiving a long-overdue update, allowing for the addition of new entries to the log and better organization.

  • Multiplayer Cooperative Combat Update

The system behind the multiplayer cooperative combat scenarios is set to be changed to a new and better framework, removing many of the annoyances with the current system and adding some great new features (many of which were suggested by adventurers)

  • Completion of Rhaknar's 'Mad'

Adventurers will be able to descend to the deepest levels of Rhaknar's perilous labyrinth and finally discover the secret that has long been protected in the deadly maze's shadowy depths. The conclusion of the Rhaknar's 'Mad' saga will tie up many longstanding loose ends.

  • New Game Screen

An updated game screen is on the way. This update significantly improves navigation and performance by reducing the number of frames on the game screen. Players will also be able to set a custom size for their game screen.

  • New Combat Power Usage

Having gone through several revisions and quite a few substantial changes (thanks to everyone who provided such great feedback), the new combat power usage system will soon go live, giving adventurers more control over how they employ their magical abilities during combat.

  • A Certain Tome...

On perhaps its third full revision, and destined to appear sometime in 2012, is the Tome of Attainment, a grand item long delayed, but not forgotten. The Tome is a wondrous artifact that rewards adventurers for their various accomplishments by unlocking special bonuses, rewards, and scenarios.

These are just some of the things on the slate for 2012, in addition to new adventures and new locations to explore.

Thanks, as always, for playing and supporting Sryth and may you and yours enjoy a very Happy and Healthy New Year!


1/3/12 - Game Update Edit

Festival of Blades to Begin Edit

Adventurers among the dangerous lot of 128 selected for the second Festival of Blades Tournament of Arms must make certain that they save their games with their best equipment/stat configuration before 6:00 PM (Eastern US Time) on Sunday, January 8th.

Just before midnight on Sunday, January 8th, the first round of tournament bouts will be readied, using the most recent saved game data for each participant.

Some things to note:

  • During each round of the tournament, combatants will face a randomly chosen opponent.
  • Tournament combatants will not know ahead of time who their next opponent will be.
  • Once the tournament begins, one round of bouts will be fought each day. Bouts will be run at night (by the server), with results published the following morning.
  • The list of bouts to be fought will be available for viewing every day after 6:00 PM (Eastern US Time), once the system has randomly matched up the remaining combatants.
  • While the tournament is running, contestants must make certain that their latest saved game reflects their best equipment/stat configuration as the system will use this data while running the battles.
  • The system will always use an adventurer's most recent saved game data up until 6 PM (Eastern US Time) of the day upon which the combat will take place.

Congratulations to the fearsome warriors that make up the tournament roster and good luck to all participants!

More details soon.

The Twin Blades Edit

Adventurers who have completed 'Solundor's Grand Ring of Illusion' tournament, and 'The Secret of Stoneback Hill', can embark on a task of great importance -- and dire peril.

The murderous outlaws, Zarythor and Thalynor (The Twin Blades), have returned from their self-imposed seclusion and have once again resumed their wicked ways -- dealing death to a long list of their enemies -- and to any who dare stand in their path.

At the behest of King Wenreald, you set out to hunt down this evasive and vicious pair, in a desperate attempt to halt their sinister and calculated spree of mayhem and murder.

Lucky you!

Unless you've previously completed it, look for 'The Twin Blades' adventure in Talinus.

New Game Screen Edit

A new game screen has been in the works for a while and is nearly ready to be launched. The new game screen reduces the number of frames from six to just two, which has increased performance dramatically.

Nobody Likes a Gexarog Edit

It seems that Iron Crown Isle (home of Zumryn's famous Battlegrounds, is having its fair share of troubles with marauding gexarogs.

More commonly known as destroyer crabs, these massive, deadly creatures have recently been seen prowling the shores of Iron Crown Isle, much to the dismay of the island's visitors.

If you're blind or visually-impaired and use screen reading software to play Sryth, it is our hope that the new game screen layout will simplify and improve your game experience.

Here is a detailed description of the new game screen layout for those players unable to view the screenshots.

The new screen is composed of a total of four areas.

Across the top of the screen is a thin bar that will contain a link to the latest news and announcements, a link to the "Send a Report" feature, and other game-related alerts.

Below the top bar are the game's two main frames, side by side. On the left is the main game frame which contains the text for your current game location and the available options for that location. To the right is a thinner frame that displays your character's stats, items, skills, powers, etc.

Across the bottom of the screen is a thin bar that contains nine buttons that allow access to the various in-game functions.

As is always the case, we will be making changes and enchancements to the new screen based on player feedback and suggestions, to make sure that everyone enjoys the best possible playing experience.

An Announcment from Tallys Edit

It is with a heavy heart that Tallys, proprietor of Sryth's famous and beloved Trading Post, has announced that he will be closing the doors to his shop on Friday, April 6th.

The legendary adventurer (now retired) has asked that no one pay him a visit due to his distraught state over the closing.

In honour of his wishes, the option to visit his location in the travel interface was removed earlier this morning (Sunday, April 1st).

Tallys hopes to soon open a new place of business in the city of Trithik, where he will busy himself modifying, rebranding and selling Gilbornn's Elixirs.

Adventurers Guild members are asked not to try and access Tallys's Trading Post, because it's no longer an available travel option. And looking for it will only lead to frustration.

Editor's note: This announcement was removed and replaced with the following one re: the April Fools' 2012 Event.

Tallys's Announcement - Update Edit

Here is the original announcement. The updated portion follows in red.

It is with a heavy heart that Tallys, proprietor of Sryth's famous and beloved Trading Post, has announced that he will be closing the doors to his shop on Friday, April 6th.

The legendary adventurer (now retired) has asked that no one pay him a visit due to his distraught state over the closing.

In honour of his wishes, the option to visit his location in the travel interface was removed earlier this morning (Sunday, April 1st).

Tallys hopes to soon open a new place of business in the city of Trithik, where he will busy himself modifying, rebranding and selling Gilbornn's Elixirs.

Adventurers Guild members are asked not to try and access Tallys's Trading Post, because it's no longer an available travel option. And looking for it will only lead to frustration.

And...since we're almost to April 2nd, it should be noted that the above announcement is nothing more than a devious April Fool's Day prank perpetrated by an unknown party against Tallys.

Adventurers Guild members should be sure to pay Tallys a visit through tomorrow (April 2nd) to see if there's more to this prank than meets the eye.

Editor's note: This announcement was removed, presumably after the event expired around April 3, 2012.

The Dreadmask Collection Edit

Those adventurers who have completed the first two parts of the Emblazoned Key series will be able to find this adventure by visiting the Silver Shaft, an inn on the road between Trithik and Mirgspil. The Silver Shaft is a new game location that will go live with the adventure.

"Scavenger's Last Hunt" is one of the largest standalone adventures to-date and is certain to prove a challenge to even the most hardened adventurers.

The adventure's open design allows adventurers the chance to begin the mission and then attempt to complete it at their leisure.

Completing the third part of the Emblazoned Key series will unlock the lower levels of Rhaknar's perilous labyrinth, which will become available several days after the adventure's release.

Gilbornn is Running Low on Elixirs Edit

Adventurers seeking to purchase Gilbornn's special 'Grim' elixir, should pay him a visit within the next couple of days. Gilbornn's supply of elixir-making ingredients is running low and his latest batch of potions will soon be gone.

You can find Gilbornn by visiting the Lost Crown Inn & Tavern in Mirgspil (located in Western Tysa).

Editor note: With the 4/20/12 announcement re: Gilbornn below this one was removed.

4/18/12 - The Emblazoned Key, Part III Edit

It will be just a few days more before the third and final part of the Emblazoned Key series of adventures is ready to go live. We apologize for the delay and for missing the previously-stated date for release!

This adventure, which begins in the Silver Shaft (an inn on the road between Trithik and Mirgspil), will take adventurers on a perilous trek into Bellsong Slough -- a treacherous mire south of the great Syrbryn Forest -- in search of the fabled Caves of Maramog and the legendary thief and explorer known as 'Scavenger'.

As previously announced, the successful completion of this adventure will unlock the next thirty levels of Rhaknar's deadly labyrinth.

Gilbornn is Almost Out of Elixirs Edit

Adventurers seeking to purchase Gilbornn's special 'Grim' elixir, should pay him a visit anytime through Sunday, April 22nd. After that, his 'Grim' elixir will no longer be available.

Gilbornn's supply of ingredients has run out, but he has enough elixirs on hand to last through Sunday -- or so he thinks!

You can find Gilbornn by visiting the Lost Crown Inn & Tavern in Mirgspil (located in Western Tysa).
