November 3, 2021 --- !!! PWIPE ANNOUNCEMENT !!!
« on: November 04, 2021, 04:35:53 AM »
                --- THIS IS A PWIPE ANNOUNCEMENT ---

We hope you earned your fill of candy and treasures from the Halloween
event! The Haunted Mansion vanished and the Candy Collector returned home
until next year.

As Arctic enters 30 years of development, we'll be closing another chapter
in the game's rich history books. The posting for new immortal applications
is also closed at this time.

Sunday November 28th, at approximately 1:00PM UTC (system time), you will
all be deleted. Arctic will remain closed to mortals until Friday, December
3rd at 11:00PM UTC.

Here are a few teasers for things to come in the new wipe:
- Several zones have either been expanded or received a full redesign.
   Expect some new, elite level challenges!
- Additional holiday instances will be introduced.
- A few additional item sets will be added.
- The 'dynamic items' system will be reworked to roll a bit more favorably
   and many load locations will have changed.
- A variety of other changes are coming, including the return of a
   racial age bonus system.

We'll let you know the full development details following your timely
demise. Please try to keep the chaos and random pkiling under control until
the final hours of the wipe.

Lastly, the immortal staff are busy with developments during this time:
annoying the staff, pestering them for buffs, or asking them for inside
information about the wipe may result in an early personal pwipe at their
discretion! No reimbursements.

Thanks for choosing Arctic!
