The following threads are scheduled to be unstuck on August 1st, 2008 unless they are adopted:
Thread Name: How about a game ghallanda?? -
About the Thread:
Warchimp130 gathered players together for game night back in the days of the Fernia server. The tradition of gathering together for games, such as Hide and Seek, ran all the way to this year. This fun thread is looking for some loving care, and can work well with the forum Events Calendar feature. Adopt this thread to help keep games alive on Ghallanda!
- The harbor will be undergoing some renovations in preparation for the redesigned in-game introduction/tutorial. Snow is also slated to make an appearance in the new tutorial!
- The final installment of the Stormreach Economics series is available in the Compendium. Click here!
- Clover_Luckyleaf has finished importing the Ask a Loremaster guide into the Compendium. Click here!
- Turbine will be hosting a gathering at Jillian's in Indianapolis on the 15th of August. Eldorudo, Tolero, Patience, and other Turbine staff will be in attendance. Be sure to RSVP in this thread.
- In an upcoming release, alignment-based Handwraps will correctly bypass Damage reduction. This change will be retroactive, and affect handwraps already in-game.
- New spells are in the works for Mod 8, including the Cleric spell "Death Pact" and Paladin spells "Zeal" and "Lionheart."
- DX10 support is being introduced to DDO for the first time!
