December 4, 2020 --- !!! PWIPE ANNOUNCEMENT !!!

      ------------- THIS IS A PWIPE ANNOUNCEMENT -------------

                           May you all die.

          You will all be deleted on December 30th, 2020.
          The new wipe will begin on January 1st, 2021.

We hope you enjoyed 2020 as much as we did. In the spirit of closing the
book on everything the year brought us, we will be wiping the playerbase on
the day of December 30th, 2020 and will reopen in the new year. We will
announce specific times and more details as the date gets closer.

This wipe saw a number of great changes to the game, including the
squashing of a number of longstanding bugs that had been plaguing us for
years. We'd especially like to thank everyone who assisted with our debug
sessions, without which it would have been very difficult to diagnose some
of the problems. (Thank you for using the 'bug' command.)

As a cause for celebration, everyone will receive a 100% increase
experience, coins, and rank gains through the end of the current wipe,
beginning with this post.

Please try to keep the chaos and random killing under control until the
last few days of this wipe. We may hand out some buffs and goodies then.

Below are some of the highlights you can expect to see next wipe:

- The reincarnation and rank systems, as well as experience tables will
  have some adjustments.
- New zones are in the works, with some nostalgia included.
- A major gear/weapon system is being designed to help with a item limits,
  dull loads, and allow for re-playability of "maxed" zones. This system
  would not entirely replace the existing, but supplement it. We may not
  have enough time to fully implement this, but we're pressing hard for it.
- The blueprints for clan strongholds are being reviewed and expanded.
- Class skills and spells will have some noteworthy changes.
- Many helpfiles are receiving some facelifts. Trust us, it's worth being
  excited about!
- Numerous quality of life improvements are to come, for newbies and
  veterans alike.
- Quite a few additional bugs are being worked out of the system.

Thanks for playing Arctic!
