1996

The following is all that we know about pre-1997, however.

  • June 16th, 1996:
- Inline color implemented. Everyone has the ability to change the color
of the various texts they type. Refer to help 'inline color' for the
syntax.
- Lord Channel added. Only Lords and above may send to or hear from it.
- Last command changed so that it displays an identifying label instead of
just physical level (eg. 100th level Mage Hero, vs. Level 51 Mage)
- Channel +all/-all fixed so that it toggles all channels on/off, instead
of activating deaf mode.
- New learning system introduced. Players now have the possiblity of
increasing their adept level higher than the maximum practiced percentage.
The chances of successfully raising a spell/skill depend on two things:
Percentage practiced up to this point, and whether you incur a successful
usage of the spell/skill or not.
  • 2nd of June, 1996:
- Lords have been implemented. After a hero passes herolevel 500, they
may attempt a morph into a Lord. Failure rate drops as the player grows
closer to level 999. Penalties for failure also decrease, as they get
closer to 999.
- Legends and Titans are created in a similar fashion to Lords, but instead
of herolevels, a Lord must be Lordlevel 500+ to morph into a Legend, and
a Legend must be Legendlevel 500+ to attempt a morph into a Titan.
- Planeshift spell added. This spell allows a Lord or above to teleport
into another plane.
- Fullness and Thirst values changed. Consumption rates vary according
race.
  • 26th of May, 1996:
- Nosun racial reinstated. Those 'dark' races affected by it will be
unable to regenerate properly, and will have a delay in the usage of
socials.
- Planes have been put in. Teleport, locate object, and other similar
spells will not work across planes. Existing planes include: Outland,
Immortal Plane, the Arena, the Hero Quest, and Midgaardia. Midgaardia
is the major world.
- Area flags introduced. These flags act like room flags, except they
affect the entire area. Examples of these flags are no-summon and
no-plague.
* Meadow is no-summon and no-plague. Players will not be able to summon
a mob or PC of any kind into the Meadow. Also, plague will continue to
hurt anyone affected by it, but will not spread.
  • 5th of May, 1996:
- New Races, and racial abilities added. Version 6 players may take
advantage of the skills given to their race.
- Afar code now in. Can now use socials with a person in another room.
Afars can only be done with people in the same area, and will not work
in private rooms.
  • 12th of May, 1996:
- Angels are in, of course, and with them you can now "who angel"
and note angel.
