  1. I'm afraid "comings months" from Aimer's post is as close to a definite deadline as we can currently give you. We'd love to be able to provide something more definite, but that is not realistic unless we can be certain we are able to deliver something by a particular date. I find that the way that MH gets "made" can be applied to a lot of the other projects as well. So, while most, if not all items on the list in this devblog are active, not all of our devs are on them at the same time. Who works on what is influenced by individual skillsets, interest, and involvement in other projects. In other words, it's an exception rather than the rule that everyone is working on the same content. (If this was the case, it would, indeed, be significantly easier to be more certain about what we're able to roll out next.) As you probably know by now, our development team isn't all that big, and the smaller the team working on something, the more susceptible we are to factors beyond what we're able to predict: it's not as simple as someone else taking over. To add on top of that, there are those factors we know will need time (lots of time!), such as testing, reward adjustments, unexpected discussions about matters X and Y ...and last-minute bugs that can end up taking far longer time to fix than anyone anticipated. I'm fully aware this does not help on the waiting (and I know very well that waiting is annoying and hard), but I hope it provides a little insight into why giving you estimates is a more complex affair than it may seem. Still, I'd say that for every item released (on the list), the step closer we are to the others.
  2. It's a nice fuzzy feeling when people come back. I hope you have a good fun time playing with your friend(s).
  3. Unfortunately we have had to disqualify the current 3rd place holder for using commissioned work. It is really rather unfortunate that such information was omitted during submission and first reached us first after this post was published. Due to the same reason, it is conceivable that we will have to close off private submissions in our future contests so this doesn't happen again. We have considered sending the rewards to the original artist, however, factoring in that they didn't explicitly want to participate in this contest, their work -- while lovely -- is holding up somebody else's rewards and position. We're presently polling for the new 3rd place and will update this thread in approximately 12 hours! Like always, everyone is welcome to participate in these constests regardless of their skill level, be they professional or just starting out, but it would absolutely not be fair for us to accept art that was commissioned either generally or for the purpose. These contests are for the community -- in this particular case the people who enjoy drawing -- and were never designed for anyone to reap benefits off from the work of someone else. This should not have been needed to be spelled-out.
  4. Picnic Art Contest Winners Here emerge our art contest winners with their delicious, nutricious picnic-art! It's often that one says that food tastes even better outside, and surely great company can't hurt! This time 19 members of our staff helped vote on the contest pictures from 17 of our talented artists! The competition between the 1st and 2nd places was particularly tough and cut very close. Congratulations to all of our winners, and thank you everyone else too for the fun arts most of which we now also get to admire as loading screens. We made loading screens of all the artwork that we could, and they'll be rotating over time so as many can make an appearance in-game as possible. That was all for this contest -- we hope the good weather stays with you so you get to enjoy all of the frolicking in the grass that you desire. All credit goes to the amazing original art creators whose player names are provided below! 1st Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} OcBabe 2nd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Dommatrix 3rd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Rurumine And here a quick reminder for all participants (and not only the winners)! Your participation rewards (Event Tickets) will be tallied together with the GM Challenges you did and sent to you over the next few days. Please pick them up from your ROdex mails before they expire! It would be sad if they did, and we wouldn't want that to happen. You'll have one week to claim them by logging onto your characters and checking your incoming mails. For the winners' illustrations that would mean logging onto the character listed above, and for the rest of the participants, the character name you gave us in the contest topic or private submission messages. Thank you again, everyone, and see you around! The staff team wishes you a sunny day!
  5. These flyers were given out in Prontera earlier today. On the back there is this long of details about all the changes you may expect this summer. Below you can read more about what these changes are and what will happen to the various items you may have obtained last year. All Summer Festival Coins will be transformed into Rusty Summer Festival Coins. All Rainbow Gemstones will be transformed into Dull Gemstones. All 2020 Summer Tickets will be transformed into Ripped Tickets. All Rusty Summer Festival Coins can be exchanged into Summer Festival Coins at a 3:1 ratio when you speak with the Ferryman. The same applies to Dull Gemstones, that will be exchangeable into Rainbow Gemstones at the same 3:1 ratio. If you want to use Rainbow Gemstones at their present value, you can do so at the Festival Painter (who can be found at Main Office 3rd floor). This will remain the case until the maintenance that will bring the new festival. Ripped Tickets can be exchanged into Summer Festival Coins at a 1:100 ratio. One ticket will become 100 Summer Festival Coins. Golden Pearls will remain unchanged. If you hold any of these, you'll be able to use these right away as normal. The items listed below will be removed and have to be obtained anew: Deepwater Pearls Pouring Keys Wetsuit Iron Shovel Steel Shovel Obsidian Shovel Steel Shards Obsidian Shards Wooden Rod Iron Rod Steel Rod Golden Rod Shiny Clamshell Sturdy Turtle Shell Cool Conch Cheap Lure Worm Lure Standard Lure Rainbow Lure These changes are going into effect because of the fact that new rewards are being attached to the different activities around the island. We feel compelled to reset player's progress in order to get everyone to share the same starting line. We've also made some minor changes to digging and fishing to prevent upgrade material stacking. We write this message so that players who may still have Rainbow Gemstones in their inventory get an opportunity to use them at their original value. Please note that the above is scheduled to take place prior to every future Summer Festival as well and not only this one. We've also listened to your feedback from last year, and as the consequence have drastically changed our Summer Weeklies. In comparison with today's weeklies, the request will be the following: Removed: Weapon Refinement Reward: 5 Endeavor Tokens Removed: Daily Reward Reward: 1 Blacksmith's Blessing Added: Summer Festival Attendance Task: Complete 4 sets of Summer Dailies Reward: 5 Endeavor Tokens Added: Festival Games Task: Play 25 Multiplayer games in the Festival Island (decreased from 40) Reward: 500 Summer Coins Increased the reward from 'Clear All Weekly Quests' to 7 Blacksmith's Blessing to account for the removal of 'Daily Reward'. These two weeklies have been fully removed and will not make a reappearance again: Removed: Festival Coins Task: Collect 9,000 Summer Coins Reward: 1 Blacksmith's Blessing Removed: Summer Spirit Task: Travel to Rock Island and obtain a 'Okay!' rating or higher 5 times Reward: 300 Summer Festival Coins We are looking forward to taking you to to the Summer Festival grounds that will open doors on June the 21st. Please note again that time to do weeklies will exceptionally be 6 days due to the festival opening on a Monday. Hope to see you then!

    Picnic Art Contest

    Annnd closed! It's awesome to see all of these last-day submissions: didn't expect this many and am very glad you people made it! There will be another post detailing the winners once we do our staff voting and add your drawings as loading screens. We'll probably need a couple of weeks for that. But, thank you folks for participating, and see you soon!

    While I'm not categorically opposed to the suggestion, I feel it would be a little unfair to those who did finish their submissions on time. It's true that we don't have a massive amount of drawings (and that it would be great to have some more!), but I'm unsure about a short extension being the correct approach. In other words, we may decide to extend it, but as I would not count on it happening, I recommend everyone who's still working on their pieces to try to reach the given deadline inasmuch as possible. Good luck!

    I feel like it is a tad too late to do a staff gallery for this challenge, as gathering screenshots of everyone isn't instant and I feel it would only be fair if the full team was equally represented. In a pinch there's the signature avatar generator Aimer suggested (!sig in #bot-commands on our Discord). It's true that it doesn't show uniform colours, but I'm pretty sure you could also reach out to any of us in private for a screenie. But in any case, have fun with your drawing!
  9. Best wishes on your birthday, Lyndiss!

    Picnic Art Contest

    There's no limit to how many of the GM challenges you can do in one drawing. We will send you rewards for all of those that you do, whether they are in same or different images. Just list them up in your submission so we better know what we're looking for.

    Picnic Art Contest

    Ah, those sometimes hated, and occasionally much awaited sunny days on the northern hemisphere (sorry, southern hemisphere folks)! When it's not storming, or indeed raining, or excessively cloud...ing (if that's a word in this context), there are those days you can finally unwrap your blankie outside without an inherent risk of frostbite. Through this action of rolling out a piece of fabric, table cloth -- or a makeshift bed sheet -- you can set your very own claim on a previously unoccupied one meter of earth that you then can use for various activities. For example, you could indulge in a romantic three-course meal with your special someone... or just read a book while a gentle breeze caresses your flowing locks... Or just lie there cooking like a continental crab. Or maybe you'd like to pick a peaceful place under a tree in order to best preserve your vampiric complexion throughout the year. We no judge. Picnics (and the baskets containing them) are marvelous, and in whatever manner that you may enjoy them -- together or alone -- offer you a good opportunity to get some fresh air. Contest Theme: Picnic This is a Ragnarok Online Art Contest, so entries will be judged by the staff team on the following: clear presence of the theme, creativity and originality. You are more than welcome to write up descriptions of your work or captions for your images but no text will be judged to determine our winners. Like previously, there is no submission cap for this contest. This means that you if you really like drawing and want to submit lots of pictures, you can! We're also continuing with GM challenges an idea from our dear friends at TalonRO. For us, this means you can earn more Event Tickets per GM challenge you complete if your submission includes them. Both are purely optional and there for your enjoyment. As always, both traditional as well as digital creations are welcome so take out your favourite supplies of choice and indulge yourself in a creative moment or two! All artists will receive a small participation reward for sharing their art with the community. Rules: There is no limit on the number of illustrations. You can submit as many as you wish but please group them under the same (one) post. There is no size restriction. But, if you want to preserve the possibility that your artwork will be featured as a "Login Screen" or "Loading Screen", your image should be 1280 x 960 or higher and scalable to this size. Include your in-game character name in your submission post. If you omit your name, we will not be able to send you your rewards! Please only submit serious entries. Humor is welcome and we encourage artists from all skill levels to take part, but troll and meme entries will be disqualified. Artistic nudity is allowed, pornography is not. If your piece contains nudity please add a NSFW tag to your post and put your piece in spoiler tags. No plagiarism is allowed. If we find someone submitting plagiarized artwork they will be disqualified. If you wish to submit your entry anonymously, you can do so via this link. Write "Art Contest" as the message title. You can change, swap out or edit your entry anytime within the time limit. We encourage all artists to either sign or place a water mark on their art. This contest will run from May 15th until June 5th. The run-time is 3 weeks. When you submit your art, you agree that your entry can be used as promotional material by NovaRO (with appropriate credit given). Anyone who is disqualified from the contest for any reason forfeits their right to participation rewards and cannot re-enter. We reserve the rights to adjust and clarify the rules of this contest if we deem necessary. How to submit: Once you have finished your artwork and ready to submit it, start by writing a new message in this thread and attach your image. You can do this by first clicking "Drag files here to attach or choose files...", then click on the image you have attached to embed it into the post. Do not copy-paste it, as this will degrade its resolution. Even better, if you can host your image somewhere, and provide us with an additional link in your post. If your image is significantly large in size, please put it in spoiler tags. Remember to include your in-game name and the GM challenges you did (if any). This is so we can send you the in-game rewards via RODEX and to help with their distribution. You can alter your entry at any point during this contest runtime by editing your original post. If you wanted to submit a different image, or add your signature, feel free to do so. If possible, please avoid from marking your art with our logo preemptively so that it may remain uniform across all potential loading screens. Rewards: 1st Place: Costume: Beret Of Artist OR Costume: Paintbrush Of Artist* 10,000 Nova Points 3 Blooming Spring Packs 350 Event Tickets Added as a Discord Banner Added as a Loading Screen 2nd Place: 5,000 Nova Points 2 Blooming Spring Packs 250 Event Tickets Added as a Loading Screen 3rd Place: 2,500 Nova Points 1 Blooming Spring Pack 150 Event Tickets Added as a Loading Screen Participation Reward: (Reward for everyone who enters, including the winners.

Each challenge can be claimed once.)

Don't stay in the sun for too long at once! If you have additional questions or enquiries about this event, you are welcome to post them directly into this thread. * Both of these items are account-bound. If the winner has already obtained both of these headgears, this prize will go to the runner-up.
  12. Hello Greystache! That's a good question. It would be great if there was a possibility for us to do this initiative in-game also, but it's quite a bit less simple than what I think it might look like at a glance. I won't be going into too much detail but as tempting the proposal is, after discussing it, we found it poses a few too many dilemmas for us. On one hand we don't feel we can give moderators the same commands that a regular GMs wields, and on the other, stripping these commands means chipping away the authority that a GM position holds. When weighing the benefits of this sort of new "middlegroundish" role in-game, we found we're more concerned about it not being able to able to do enough to justify its existence and we have yet to come up with a satisfactory solution. Because of this, we are not explicitly looking for in-game channel moderators. We're (of course) always open to our GMs tackling the channels to their best abililty, but aside from that, for the rest of the way we rely on player reports.
  13. Become A Discord Moderator While the staff team is widely international, there are still only so many languages we are able to cover among us at any given time. Providing adequate, real-time moderation across our Discord's many language channels has proven challenging, if not unrealistic. Recently it has also not been uncommon that player reports and screenshots submitted to us contain crucial information in languages we cannot fluently communicate in or properly decipher on a short notice, and this tends to slow down our ability to act as fast as we'd like. As, we realize, this is less than an ideal circumstance to have for a server of this size, we are looking to recruit dedicated Discord Mods who we hope can aid us in keeping also our non-English channels safe and friendly spaces for the communities participating in them. Here is a list of the current language channels on our Discord (in no particular order): .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;} .tg td{border-color:black;border-style:dashed;border-width:1px;font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px; overflow:hidden;padding:10px 5px;word-break:normal;} .tg th{border-color:black;border-style:dashed;border-width:1px;font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px; font-weight:normal;overflow:hidden;padding:10px 5px;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-ikqu{border-color:#ffffff;color:#000000;text-align:left;vertical-align:top} Spanish Russian Vietnamese French Korean Italian Portuguese Japanese Arabic Tagalog Chinese Malay German Indonesian As a prospective individual, we envision you as skilled at evaluating whatever situation that may come your way calmly and fairly, and adept at making decisions that are in accordance with our rules. Taking responsibility should be your second nature, as it is at the front, core and center in the role of a moderator. Essentially, what you would do, is making sure everyone plays nice. To give you an idea, this can take various forms and range from dispensing thoughtful reminders to handling incidents of verbal abuse between two players, to swiftly removing inappropriate content. If you're following through this far, please note that we largely expect you to apply to one language channel only (from the list above). We are aware that you may be able to speak multiple different languages fluently and well, and indeed it is not our intention to slow your roll, but our foremost priority is that you have (and take) reasonable time to focus on one channel of your choice and interest. It is more important to us that this particular task (moderating of your channel of choice) is done well than effort to cover all possible areas with varying degrees of success. However, regardless of your chosen language, you need to have a good command of English. To work well with you, we need to have a language in common. Here we'd also like to note that if you speak a language that is not currently on our Discord but feel it should be because there's community for it, don't hesitate to reach out to us. While above all we seek to fill moderation posts for the various languages on our Discord, we also welcome a handful of general moderators to join us. Such individuals would be expected to keep an eye on the class channels in particular, and otherwise similarly tasked with moderating responsibly and well. .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;} .tg td{border-color:white; border-style:dashed;border-width:1px;font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px; overflow:hidden;padding:10px 5px;word-break:normal;} .tg th{border-color:white;border-style:dashed;border-width:1px;font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px; font-weight:normal;overflow:hidden;padding:10px 5px;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-0lax{border-color:#FF7F00;text-align:left;vertical-align:top} If you are new to moderation but eager to learn, Discord has compiled a useful collection of articles in their Moderator Academy. We strongly encourage all prospective applicants to read through these texts. Kindly note that being a moderator is classified as volunteer work. Please do not expect monetary reimbursement from having this position. As with our regular applications, before you proceed, read the rest of this post thoroughly, and post any questions you have in this thread before you begin filling in your answers. RULES & REQUIREMENTS Age: 19 or older. You have to be at least 19 years old in order for your application to be considered. Applications must be filled out in English. While most staff members are multilingual, the server's primary language remains English. Your command of this language does not have to be perfect but we consider that your application reflects your fluency. Game Masters represent the server so it is important that you are able to express yourself clearly and well. All applications must be filled out in their entirety. Please do not leave any fields empty. While we understand that some questions may seem difficult or tedious to answer, we ask that you fill each field to the best of your ability. Please aspire to use full sentences, proper punctuation and capitalization and also avoid abbreviations. Any applications filled out improperly will not be considered. As we process a large number of applications, we will not be contacting any individual applicants regarding potential errors or omissions. It would also not be fair for those applicants who invested time into making sure theirs were properly filled. So please double-check your application before you send it to us. Please do not send multiple applications or ask about the application status. You will be notified of our final decision once we are ready to do so. Recruitment is a lenghty process and we will reply to everyone in due time. Do not copy someone else's application. The application should come from you and you alone. If we find any signs of copied work, you (both) will be instantly rejected. Do not post applications in this thread. They will be deleted, and you will be immediately disqualified. The only thing this would do, would be providing a clear indication that you have not paid adequate attention to this section. HOW TO APPLY Copy and paste the application found in the spoiler tag of this post into a message via THIS LINK. You can remove the comments in small font without any worry. They're only there to clarify the questions so that they're easier for you to answer. As for the length of your answers, it is completely up to your discretion; your replies may be elaborate, consice, or something in-between. Whichever you feel most comfortable with. Please BOLD your answers. This will make the application easier for us to read. You can do this easily by highlighting your answer, then pressing Ctrl + B. Keep the rest of your message default. This is basically us asking you to spare our eyes from rainbow colors. Creative formatting will get you attention but not the kind you want if you want to be seriously considered. Creativity is truly wonderful, just please not here, as it will also show that you are not able to follow the most basic of instructions. We don't want your formatting to detract our attention away from what you're saying, and ask you to respect this wish. Use the appropriate title for your message. The format should be [Language Channel or General] Discord Moderator - [Your Discord Name]. If you copy one of the samples into your application, please don't forget to change the name too. It's a little awkward to read repeat applications from "Nova". Examples: Valyrian Discord Mod - Nova Klingon Discord Mod - Tokei We are looking forward to adding some mods on our Discord! Toodles!
  14. Heya BuRiGotchi and welcome to NovaRO! I hope you will meet someone you knew from back then. After all, you never know! In the meantime, wishing you good times here with us. Make yourself feel at home.
  15. Live Discord AMA Hello everyone! Time goes much too fast, and it has been a year and a half since our last AMA. If you are curious about that one from 2019 and want to read more about it, you are welcome to peek over here. In short, what you can expect is a collective get-together consisting of us and players, where you can ask the Nova team some questions and come and chill with us. We plan to hold our second AMA session over the server's Discord #main channel on the 20th of December 2020 at around 12 PM PST (noon server time)! Like last time, there will be many of us attending, so we ask once more to submit your questions via this Google Form. We may not be able to make disclosures about future releases, but this is the time and place to ask about our favorite mobs, what we have for breakfast, which mob is the cutest, and much more. Filling the Form We'd appreciate it if you could keep it to one question per submitted form. There is no limit as to how many questions you can ask though so if you have several questions, please simply re-submit the form . After the actual question, there are two optional fields. If you don't fill the first optional field in with a particular name, we'll assume that your question is directed towards the team. If you want to, you can specify the recipient of your question by checking our Staff Page, but as the page sadly does not yet list our lovely Trial GMs (Chise, Nyx, Mikaboshi, Baek, Alcor and Scope), please write out their names if you have a question directed to them. In the second optional field you can give us your nickname so we can say who the question was from, or choose to keep your questions anonymous if you prefer. What happens after This form will remain open until 18th of December. After its closing, we'll start going through the questions and will remove duplicates and those we will not be able to answer. We'll also be organizing them into sections as a way to semi-structure the AMA. It's unlikely all of us will be able to make the time and date, but we'll do our best to be present. Some GMs may for personal reasons choose not to speak over voice though, and if we'll have those cases, we'll resort to responses over text or have someone speak out for them. That's it for now! We're all very excited about having another AMA with you and are warmly looking forward to seeing you there!
