Today Steven dropped some big confirmations about guild castles!

From Discord:

Jahlon: Do Castles influence the region around them? Or just the 3 nodes attached to the castle?

Steven: The region around them.

Ruby: Castle nodes exist outside of the traditional node system. Which parts are they excluded from?
Steven: Many systems, citizenship, zones of influence, freehold system, govt, societies.

Ruby: Caravans?
Steven: They can receive and launch caravans.

Ruby: Quests and tasks?
Steven: There are quests that are available in the castle nodes.

Jahlon: No freeholds on the 3 nodes attached to the castle?
Steven:
Correct.

About taxes and its influence range:
Steven: Node taxes apply to the node itself and their freeholds. Castles impose a tax on all revenue for the nodes within its region...
New website style for The AoC Dungeon!

Welcome! The new website style is now live!

Everyone should now have a new style enabled by default, the "dungeon style". It has been custom ported for my Xenforo 2 website, and should fit a lot more into the Ashes of Creation game\dungeon theme! 😀

Logo/other adjustments
One major part is still not done, and that is the new logo. Will be finalized this week.
There will also be continuous adjustments throughout the week to fine-tune everything.

Feedback is important, so please tell me what you think!

Old style
"What about the old style? I kind of preferred that one.."

Fear not, you can still use the old one if you wish. Switching to the "alternative black style" is easy, just press the button with the light-bulb, labeled "Change style". It is located right above the footer. -->

The AoC Dungeon 1 year anniversary!



At this day in 2018, I made my first post on the website, thus marking the official launch. I am very proud of the progress so far! We have made detailed stream recaps of all streams in 2018, awesome feature articles (example) and more. The AoC Dungeon has become a official content creator for the game, and we’ve expanded the website with all sorts of cool new features and improvements, such as the guild list.
I’ve made lots of new friends, recruited some amazing staff members, and can’t wait to see how the site and its community evolves in 2019.

For 2019 we will...

Official AoC website has been updated - A quick look at the Intrepid and mycom AoC websites
  • 668

Intrepid recently updated their official website, featuring a new shop, account functionality, download options for APOC and more.
Their old website was sorely lacking in both functionality and aesthetics, being a combination of several "themes" as they had updated the website a little by little. A good website is always vital for a game, as it will be the first look for many new players wanting to know more about the game.

As so, this was a good day to take a look at the brand new, Ashes of Creation website! Also, for comparison, we took a look at the AoC My.com website, which will be the "official" website for European players.

We see the devs spawn into what is a level 5 City Node, Elven themed, filled with NPC's and life.


In this detailed node window we see a bunch of systems that are working behind the scenes. We see a progression bar that shows us that this node is level 5 (City Stage) and is 1/4th of the way to becoming a Metropolis. We also see the total citizens of the node, the tax rate that is set by the mayor of the node (in this case Steven) and we got some information on the 'Trade Agreements' system. Trade agreements basically are agreements between two nodes that lets players do certain specific caravan runs...
