Blood Thirst 9

It is time for another Blood Thirst contest! The contest where you're put into random teams, kill over a couple of days and get rewarded handsomely for your efforts. There are a few tweaks this time as I continue to improve the contest. These are:

  • Require 50 PvP wins today in order to enter
  • 150 PvP wins required to claim a prize during the contest
  • Prizes are solely based on your personal contribution, which is the same for everyone, but the rewards increasing based on your teams final position

The contest will start on Friday 20th at 00:01 and end Saturday 21st 23:55. That's the majority of 48 hours over those 2 days. You can enter from right now. Click here to view the Blood Thirst page for information on entering the contest. You must enter before the Wednesday 18th ends.

Social, RP & VIP+ Updates

RP Updates Part 1

Just before Christmas, I introduced a whole bunch of RP updates, click here if missed it.

RP Updates Part 2

But there's plenty more where that came from. Here are some more RP updates.

More RP Characters On Forum Threads
You can now add 3 of your RP characters to a single RP forum thread! When you head over to the RP forum, you'll notice the new interface that gives you the option to add a new character (all characters must be added to threads again, but all previous posts will remain along with the character info). When a new character is added, you'll notice the box doesn't go away! And underneath that is the text box along with a select box to choose which character you want to post as. This also is applied to house and coven RP forums too. Finally, there is Plasma Boon which for a one off cost of 1 Plasma to add up to 10 characters to a thread.

RP Character Forum List
On the your RP Panel, when you view all your RP characters you will see a new 'Forum' link underneath. Clicking this link will show you all the RP, coven RP, and house RP forum threads you have added that selected character to.

Morph Into Your RP Character
For people who like to change their characters often, or like to RP in different characters, there is now a new option on the change username page to morph into one of your RP characters. Your username and avatar will update to your RP character's. And when you're done, you can go back to the change username page and simply go back (or choose another character). This will be extra useful for those who like to RP in chats in a different character.

Extended RP Panel
Your RP Panel has been extended to include house and coven RP boards too.

Social Updates

The social element of the game is important to a lot of people. People enjoy playing in their covens, houses and the like. They like to be engaged with other online vampires and vampires in their networks. Connections is key to keeping relationships alive in Reign Of Blood. So today there are some new social features and upgrades to help with that. For the lone wolves out there, fear not, none of this is compulsory and can be pretty much be ignored so you can continue your day.

The Welcome Panel 
For the ongoing quest to fit more content in the same amount of space, I've made some changes to the login process (which you have probably already noticed).

That game updates you've missed will  now be presented on a page earlier. The page that welcomes you after you've logged in. This allows more room on the first page see after that for content.

What I call this new page, is the welcome panel.

This page is split into two main sections. One section is dedicated to starting your day, which includes many quick links to the most popular areas of the game. And the second is a social area showing what the other vampires of the Dead City are up to.

This section shows things like your online friends, family,  & coven members,  other online vampires, and some activity feed content.

New Social Panel
Your social panel has been given a whole new look, and a whole new wad of content.  It has a brand new look, and includes useful features like online friends, online family members, recent blogs, and a previous of status updates.

I have also gone through and made some enhancements to the pages, and also fixed some bugs including letting you know you've hit your house member limit, rather than them just not showing.

Blood Letter Folders
You ask, you get! I have added the ability for you to add BL's into folders. You'll see a new Folders link at the top of the blood letter page, and you can add entire letter threads into them when viewing a blood letter.

And finally, I've added some new order by options on the house directory page.

VIP+ Updates

Today I have also introduced a few new perks for being a VIP+ member.

  • VIP+ members can now give 7 Karma a day
  • Have up to 50 player notes
  • Repair all equipment at once with one click
  • Slightly higher chance to get a Vial Wheel win
  • (Made it clear that you see all Wheel times on To-do, and can be in 20 houses)

I hope you like these updates,
