Change Log and Known Issues
We are going back in time, all the way back to the 2nd Era where mother is still roaming the planet, and orphans are discovering the benefits to cannibalism. There is hardly any vegetation and those that do have to fight over it endlessly. This era was when the world had its highest population to date. Enter you, one of the many blessed children that will die in this Era… what was your story? What were you like? What did you do before you died? Anyone that roleplays this will be awarded the November Badge. All topics for the 2nd Era will take place in the Sundered Lands event board.
Estorica Art Challenge!
Artists, we are holding an art contest for Estorica based art, you do not need to be a member of Estorica to participate.

Welcome to Estorica’s September Newsletter!
It’s time for an update!
OOC Monthly Challenges.
In Character Monthly Challenges
We are going to keep things simple, the first challenge is a fun one. In any given topic, you must create a narrative for your character to search for and find the fanciest of hats. Those of you who complete this challenge will be awarded the Hat connoisseur badge.
(Note: The fanciest of hats will be rewarded with a bonus badge, so be sure to describe your hat as best as possible)
Character Growth and Development Challenge (Back to School)
Create a Narrative for one of your characters to learn a new skill, or begin a new adaptation or mutation. This should be broken up into three to four topics, one-shots are acceptable.
Owner of the Bow of Spring
Infused into each and every arrow this bow is capable of firing the very soul of an animal. Once a weapon in the possession of the Church of Mother, it was taken by a thief shortly after its development. What became of the thief no one knows and the magical weapon faded into legend. It hadn’t surfaced for hundreds of years until rumors and stories of a hunter who could fire massive beasts from a bow began to spread in the current era. Be it the same thief who originally stole it or someone new, no one was certain. Whoever has it now is using it to drive fear into the hearts of people around them and is using that fear to commit vile acts of thievery or worse.

Plot Update [World Breaking News]
The year time skip is now in full effect and open to everyone. Which means the event is now over, and we are wrapping up topics. The teams and Staff are working towards new plots but for the time being, we the people of Malice are enjoying a bit of normalcy. This does not mean that mischief is not afoot. Political gain is always on the rise as new alliances form, and choke holds on power wax and wane. Only time will tell when the next great threat will rear its ugly head.
The overall theme of the current section of the world plot is focused on individual character growth, so smaller plots will appear more than they usually have. The three main areas of world growth are politics, romance, small territorial wars on land and at sea, and the connection that all of these things can share. This month may or may not see a major plot later develop so keep an eye out for announcements.

OOC Monthly challenges

Additionally continuing from last month we are challenging everyone to design a village and a leader to lead that village. Take the challenge and make an interesting backstory to receive an award on the forum that will be forever pinned to your player account.
In Character Monthly challenge
This month we are keeping it simple, if you make a character post this month you will receive the “posted in august in award” for your character simple as that.
There is a quest for Writger's Katars
Owner of Writger’s Katars
Once a champion of the Arena, the owner of Writger’s Katars can manifest illusionary copies of themselves. These copies appear perfect, they can almost be mistaken for the actual person. But given that they are illusions, they aren’t solid. If touched, they shimmer. If attacked, they vanish. While their current owner is a retired fighter and now lives her life throwing extravagant parties, she is still well armed and ready to fight should someone decide they want a piece of her. However, if one can tease at her wild heart, one could almost assume they could tame and capture it.
Contact Asher/Sin Incarnate to participate.
It's the beginning of a new month. This means a fresh start for voting.

We are now allowing topics to be post AI under certain circumstances. Talk to Bez for specifics.
