Withered Realm Territories Re-Open for Claims
It's been many years since the 2008 fire. The land has recovered and is flourishing. As such, all territories east of Halcyon Mountain are once again available for packs to claim, should any desire to do so.
Accordingly, the Withered Realm territories have been renamed Primeval Memories. The "Ashes to Ashes" forum has been renamed Eastern Realms, and to lessen confusion all around, what was formerly "Eastern Rise" is now simply Halifax, since that was the only territory it housed anyway! We'll be working on updating the territory descriptions, but let us know if we forgot to rename a thing somewhere!
Realism Check Requests
We've added a Realism Check Request to the list of Request forms. Moving forward, we will only be giving official answers to realism-related questions for in-depth, specific scenarios requested via Realism Checks.
Realism-related questions are absolutely still welcomed in the Questions and Help forums and via Tumblr, but these spaces will be more for community discussion, basic research, and pointing players in the right direction to do their own research.
In recent years, the administration has sunk a lot of time into doing research for players in order to answer their questions. It becomes especially difficult when questions are very broad, and we have to spend extra time formulating an answer/official stance that covers all our bases, and which has the least chance of being misunderstood by someone who hasn't done their research. It makes a lot more sense to only give official answers to specific scenarios than to overreach and try to generalize on topics that are often very complicated.
As we have mentioned in various Tumblr responses, it isn't on us to do research for you, and it is far easier for us to give a yes or no to whether something is feasible when the player has already done some digging of their own. In addition to freeing up administrative time and resources, we hope that encouraging more players to do their own research will improve the community's overall knowledge and familiarity with 'Soulsverse feasibility. You guys are a smart lot, after all!
'Souls does already have a wealth of realism-related resources we think are overlooked frequently. The RP Guide's Realism section and subsections is a good place to start. We're working on re-adding a comprehensive Horse Guide to the RP Guide, and as always, players are welcome help build additional resources on the Wiki.
Dalimil has returned to The Outpost with more horses and more opportunities for stud services.
