Introducing GreenWood! City changes, new world map & so much more.



Let's start 2011 off with a bang, shall we?!

Greenwood
A new location has been added, and it's called Greenwood. An underground-type forest for you to earn some cash without using your precious turns. Although this will not be appealing to older rich vampires (until I make you), it will mainly appeal to new people and for people missing out on a bit of cash due to the bank interest changes. Of course it's in beta, so the money it gives may decrease or increase as I watch it. "Energy" works the same way as Spring Valley's stamina. You get 2 energy every 5 minutes as long as you're located in Greenwood (you don't have to be alive but this could change & remember that you don't get stamina or energy on the top of hour reset). There will be no quests for GW until I get the money balance right.

Spring Valley changes
Due to Greenwood, stamina now gives at the same rate as Greenwood energy. You now get 2 stamina every 5minutes.

Dead City update
The Dead City has had a major face lift! New funky font headers, new image and cool hover over help. You can turn off the hover over help in the account options, as most of you already know what everything is. I also know you hate change, but a few of the locations in the Dead City have been moved around a little, the new headers will explain this.

And the others...
Ghost town, Vadenhill & Spring Valley now all have new images to represent them.

World map
Mr. Sirus has been working hard making the world of ReignOfBlood more visual. The portal now shows the ReignOfBlood world sepia style world map. I've added mouse overs on the cities for quick info on that location. This also makes it so easy to expand the ReignOfBlood world. I think it's really cool & I hope you do too. Go to the portal to check it out!

Story Quests
 As you've noticed I added 3 new story quests this week, there are more to come! There will of course be a story quests on Greenwood soon for those interested in that backstory.

QOTD
The QOTD link is now located under the "government" section of the new Dead City. The link now only appears when a staff member has posted a QOTD, which will save you refreshing the page to see if one has been posted yet.

Lotto Jackpot
After 2 rollovers in a row the lottery jackpot is over $250,000,000. Someone's going to be rich this weekend (if it doesn't rollover again).

Double COVEN EXP Friday!
Friday I am going to run a double COVEN EXP day! From 10pm Thursday (13th Jan) until 10pm Friday (14th) all battles will earn double exp for your coven.

You can give feedback to any of these new features here!

Hope you like!
Ash

2 stamina every five minutes in SV? Suck my balls, Ash. As if it isn't already bad enough regaining stamina, you gotta go and fuck wit it.

Once again, great work Sirus!

Ahhahaha Ash all you did was stick pics you probably took from Deviant art or google images and pasted them on the site! loooooooool Thanks for the laugh though! For a sec I thought you might have actually done something with the game XD

I like the updates and the map yet the update in DC on the links don't really stand out and the images for each zone just look stuck on, not that they are bad images but appear out of place.
Also Greenwood is a redundant name, my opinion however, for the love of god please keep werewolves out of it or there is going to be a RP twilight fight scene and I'll have to break the booze out to get me through he night. ;)

anon,
In defense of Ash:
A) NOTHING was stolen from google or DA. The city images were bought from stock sites then edited in photoshop. Just taking from google would be a violation of copywrite.
B) He took the all photos for green wood himself.
C) I did the map.
Good job doing research, anon! I commend you-Sirus

If I'm being honest Greenwood looks kinda boring. Thought there be more to it than that. All it is, is looking at trees and getting money. Then again it is just starting out so hopefully there will be expansion on this in the future.

Looking great, Ash! Well done, I'm loving it :)
