Wardens of the Realms: Update, June 28 2010
The Wardens of the Realms information has been updated, with some new and exciting additions for the player community to strive towards. Read all about it here.
The Proof of Valor Scrolls drop rate increased to 5 (up from 3) per event.
Royal Guards Unit Ranks officially added (This rank includes an additional blessed sash reward).
Knighthood: The Knight of the Realm rank officially added (This rank includes an additional blessed sash reward and having the honor of getting your player character title set to ?Knight of the Realm?).
Looting Protocols: To avoid having players with ?young? status simply roam about looting the corpses of slain monsters (without the fear of being attacked due to their ?young? status) and obtain the ?A Proof of Valor Scrolls?; the monsters which drop the scrolls shall have added to them a script which will only allow those who do ?significant? damage to them to loot the items dropped. Thus even when their corpses decay, players who have not attacked and dealt significant damage to them shall not be allowed to loot their drop items.

Update: Treasure Map Event (May 14, 2010)
Being informed by Queen Dawn of some missing treasure, Sgt. at Arms Amonos lead many brave adventurers in search of the thief and the lost items. After many a day?s hard travel, they scoured the remote islands near to Buccaneers Den and other remote tropical regions. During their searching the hearty members of the party encountered many dangerous monsters, seemingly sent forth to guard these remote locations, but why and by who they pondered. It was reported that a dark robed stranger wandered near to the edge of their camp during one evening; on approach he was identified as Algenon the Alchemist. With a hideous laughter he leapt off a nearby cliff into the sea shouting ?You will never find it!?; the stunned onlookers observed him as he ran across the sea, suspended on a magical puff of smoke, until he was out of sight! Fearing that this endeavor was ?A ruse to lure us to our demises..? Sgt At Arms Amonos advised the party that he would confer with the queen and report back to her their findings in this matter and that upon her advice he would consider the matter further. With that the weary members of the search party disbanded and went on their separate ways, returning home.
