Point Bank Change!

Hey all - so after a very good question asked in the Renown Q & A the staff have voted and looked at the maths and you will no longer be able to buy Renown with PB points. The NPCs which you can purchase have also been edited - just swapping out the word fame with the word renown!

Staff Change!

Hello everyone! Quick announcement re: a staff change for you tonight. Djinn has opted to return to the Developers and he has stepped down from Rynmere as a mod, leaving it in the capable hands of Plague, Muse and Khymarah. Thanks go to him for all he did as an ST and I'm sure the Dev team are delighted to welcome him back!

New Lore!
We have two new lore updates to announce:

1. Please check out our new Souls Primer in the Lore Book for all your ghost and afterlife needs!

2. Rynlism, Rynmere's own religion, has just gotten a major facelift. Check it out in the Rynmere Lore here!

Big thanks to Muse and Plague for all of their hard work!

Ithecal Rewrite!


That's right, folks! We've teased that we've been working on it for some time now, and it's finally here! The Ithecal rewrite is now live, the old, problematic half snake people that gave folks so much trouble have been reworked into bipedal lizard folk. Big bipedal lizard folk at that. But it's not just a physical change. Their history, which was in need of an update anyway, has been massively reworked as well. and as an added bonus, this is the first bit of canon Idalosian lore that pertains to the fate of the dragons! Because of this rework, Raskithecal have been removed as a race option, as they have been merged with the Ithecal into a single race.

However, it's not only the Ithecal who got an update. Both Ethelynda and Raskalarn, the two central Immortals to the Ithecal, have had their histories reworked slightly and massively expanded. Ethelynda also got a fighting style update.

Ithecal rework can be found here: click here
Ethelynda can be found here: click here
Raskalarn can be found here: click here
And an Ithecal Q&A can be found here: click here

Big thanks to Squirrel for the Ithecal rework and how it worked into the history expansion/rework for Ethelynda and Raskalarn.

User Control Panel Update!
Hi folks,

I've updated the "Race" dropdown in the User Control Panel to remove the raskithecal and reorder the races so that they are in alphabetical order.

One of the side impacts of this, however, is that the race being displayed beneath your name may not accurately reflect your character. Please take a moment to go into the User Control Panel > Profile tab and confirm that the "Race" field reflects your character's true race.

Apologies for the inconvenience (and for all Prophets now showing up as Mer :shock:)! We hope this will make the dropdown easier to use in future.
