Beyond the Veil (Heavy RP / Light PVP)

“It came to pass that Kolvek, Priest of Mitra, saw the desolation and savagery of the Exiled Lands. With prayer and sacrifice, he felt the command of his god to bring justice, peace, and civilization to the troubled realm, and end the barbaric reign of savages among the exiles.”
- Koh

Beyond the Veil is a Heavy RP-oriented server with a friendly and engaged community. Because conflict can and does arise in a world like Conan, PvP is enabled and may happen any time when IC conditions are appropriate. That said, raiding is turned off by default unless an IC conflict requires it.

Major RP features:
  • A server city named Hyew (Proto-Indo-European word for justice or law);
  • A server-wide, player-focused plot coming soon. Expect a dark, unique story that reacts to player choices and brings into focus questions about gods, mortality, and the lengths people will go to escaped the exiled lands.
  • Active Quest NPC system being developed

We are a community-run server, and all major rule changes (as determined by the admin team, with deference given to community opinion) are put up for a vote among the members. We pride ourselves on being open to feedback and open to change, focusing on what our members feel is best for the server overall.

Server name: Beyond the Veil
Location of server: US East Coast
Max Capacity: 70
Discord: https://discord.gg/EfyNhur
Age Restrictions: 18+

Server is passworded. There is a brief application conversation before approval to view the full Discord and password details.

Server Settings (full details available on discord):
  • XP is set to x2
  • Gathering rate: 1.5
  • Day/Night: (still being adjusted)
    • Cycle: .5
    • Day: .7
    • Night: 1.3
  • No drop on death
  • Avatars disabled
  • Purge is enabled
  • Decay is enabled on a slow timer
  • Low Hunger/Thirst
  • Logged out characters do not remain in the world
  • Raids are off by default; raids will be enabled only for IC
  • Containers Ignore Ownership: Yes

Does the server use mods? Yes, although our philosophy is to favor server stability over heavy mod usage.
  • Pippi
  • All the Little Things

RP and RP-PvP rules:
  • Character and Clan names should fit the Conan setting.
  • No metagaming, griefing, cheating, or trolling.
  • Reasonable IC theft is allowed, as long as RP is involved.
  • We take building rules seriously, to reduce server load and make the game fun for all members. Buildings should not block passages or points of interest. See our full rules on Discord for details.
  • Interpersonal PvP must be preceded by IC conflict, and must allow both parties time to respond ICly. Anyone can run away from PvP ICly without a loss. We have a die-roll system for situations where PvP results in a loss and the participants cannot agree on the outcome. Permadeath can only happen if the dying character's player feels it is appropriate.

Additional tidbits:
  • We are slowly adding quests that grant and accept Pippi currency, to create an active virtual economy. New quests will cover a variety of playstyle preferences.
  • We have player-run Pippi NPC merchants for specialty shops (max one merchant per player)

Our first major server-wide RP event was prompted by an NPC refugee whose town had been corrupted and overrun by skeletons and a dragon. When the siege and the carnage were finished and the monster vanquished, the dragon's head was donated to the city for the creation of Hyew's Map Room, tying that RP to the progress of the server as a whole.

It all began with the arrival of a refugee, Hakeem, who asked all who passed for assistance for his village. Injured and weary, he gave us all directions to his destroyed home. Those that helped would be rewarded with what little belongings the village owned as well as the future safety of the lands nearby.

Together we gathered, the dragon trapped behind walls, the armies of corrupted dead manning the walls.

And so the siege began, the walls slowly being pulled down by the continued bombardment, the dragon hopefully weakened and its skeletal host decimated.

The walls crumble, the dragon now enraged strikes out after the adventurers.

Hours pass, the battle continues until the dragon bursts forth, straight for the camps, destroying and killing on it's way. A long day finally is over as the dragon is defeated.

Now that the Funcomming has slowed for a bit, we're winding back up with RP around the new content and getting to know new players. :)

We're a young server, but growing! We're slowly adding specialty pippi shops to our player city, with lots of possibilities still open for newcomers. Also had some good, consequence-oriented RP yesterday between several characters, as a result of some IC opportunistic thieving that had been going on. IC drama, based on OOC cooperative fun. :) Come check us out!
