Theme of our Server
It doesn’t matter how you got here. No difference as to the reasons why. Whether born in these cursed lands, banished here at the whim of others, or carried to the sands by your own two feet for some unknown cause, the end result is now the same; you are trapped.
Trapped in life and death. There is no escape. Trapped in a magical prison where the gods literally walk among us, crushing mere mortals beneath their feet. Trapped with fellow prisoners who would eat the flesh from your bones to end the hunger gnawing at their stomachs. Trapped behind a mysterious bubble filled with monstrous beasts that exist no where else in the world.
Noticing a theme?
There are talking stones located throughout the Exiled Lands that tell a story of war between two races. Of refugees fleeing their home and becoming the servants of those who created the Nameless City and the magical barrier surrounding this land. That may very well be a true story. Or not. The victors of wars and conflicts write history from their perspectives. Judging by the ruins scattered about these Exiled Lands, there were no victors.
There is also no sense of time. No means to put the events that unfolded here into perspective. Is the prison the same as it once was or has it become something else? Changed? A Venus flytrap waiting for more mortal souls to slip inside? A forgotten pitfall that hungers for an unwary step? A proving ground created by the gods? Or perhaps those Otherworldly beings simply enjoy watching their captives struggle, feeding off the emotions that most closely match their pantheon.
You can try to figure it out. Or you can accept that it just doesn’t matter.
You’re here now.
Ragnarok is a new RP-focused server that seeks to maximize character options, automate administrative features as much as possible, and create a setting which embraces foundations of RE Howard's work. Our server utilizes the Age of Calamitous mod for increase variety of building and character appearances. We also utilize mods and lore to incorporate werewolves, vampires, and two racial options; elven and vanghoul subspecies of humans. This is not a high fantasy setting. Its the gritty, dark and violent world of Conan. Elves and Vanghouls are twisted variants of humans who were born in the Exiled Lands and exist nowhere else.
Please note: werewolf, vampire, elf and vanghoul races are purely cosmetic and roleplay flavoring options. No stat bonuses or special abilities are in place at this time.
We are using a 40-slot server with dedicated CPU processing hosted by GTXGaming. Should average player activity reach the 30+ mark, we will shift to a dedicated stand-alone box through the same host.
There will be no wipes and the mods currently in place are solid. We may consider new mods in the future if something is released by the amazing modding community, but at this time we have extensively reviewed all currently available mods and focused on the nine listed below. In other words, what we're using may be added to, but not removed from, so its safe to build without fear of wipes or loss of your hard earned efforts.
