What are the subscription levels?
Ashen Empires accounts will be separated into four levels. All levels will be represented by an in-game icon next to a player’s name.

* Gold – A gold icon indicates a player with a current active Ashen Empires account with their last paid period being for 1 month or greater. Gold level plans will be available for 1 month, 3 months and 6 month time periods.

* Silver – A silver icon indicates a player who has an active account, but has paid for a period of less than one month. Silver level plans will be available for 1 day, 3 days and 1 week time periods.

* Diamond - Player has been a subscriber (at gold or silver level) for 6 continuous months. Rock on!

Bronze player do have some limitations once they leave Valinor. Bronze players will be limited in experience they can earn per day and items they can loot and craft. Bronze players will not be able to trade or party with other players and they will not be allowed to engage in player vs player (PvP) combat (unless they are attacked).

  Has been a very long time since I have updated the News!

Dragonshop Online: Currently down. We will get it back up in the next few weeks.
  SoC Info: Word has it testing for the selected testers hasnt begun yet, but OneEye has posted some nice Screenshots of new locations and monsters including Sand Giants and Young Dragons, makes you wonder if there are other dragons, we can only hope. SoC should be going into testing sometime in November barring any unforseen family illnesses or difficulties with the content they are working on. The Content is rumored to be MASSIVE. But only time will tell.

Site News: Its been a long road in the making but finally came up with a concept of the Beastiary that is fitting with the site's design. Pages should be up shortly to browse. Alot of the info contained comes from our sister site Emerald Dragon's Lair and from another source made by Si G and Killumanti - Monster List

Hail to thee, Adventurer! Welcome to the world of Ashen Empires. Are you up for the challenge of seeking your destiny in an ill-fated land?
Dragoneers have set up a Forum for all. Get in on the fun of Legends, Dragoneers and the Dransik Alliance.

  Iron Will Games is proud to announce the SECOND expansion for Ashen Empires - The Sands of Creation!

The Sands of Creation expansion will include:

Construction - The Sands of Creation expansion will allow players of build, own and maintain property. Players will be able to buy deeds and plans to several sizes of housing, ranging from a simple dwelling to a large keep. Once the deed has been purchased, construction can begin! Players will use raw materials to complete their housing – the amount of resources needed will depend on the chosen housing plan. Once a house has been completed the player will be responsible for maintaining it via the Lotorian Tax System. Players will be able to customize the interiors and the exteriors of their homes with various items, including chairs, tables, bookcases, plants and flowers. One house can be built per account.

New Lands - The Sands of Creation expansion will open the lands of the continent of Artonia. Artonia is filled with searing hot deserts and lush beautiful oasis’s. Artonia is home to a lost, and long faded ancient civilization, which in its prime was far advanced to those from the lands of Dransik. Players will find ancient artifacts, ruined temples and fabulous lost cities and they uncover the mysteries behind the demise of the Artonians.

Three New Cities - Three new cities will be introduced with the Sands of Creation expansion. The evil city of Subashi, the good city of Sardincia and the neutral city of Taklamakan. The Mages of Lotor are busy working on technology that will allow players to travel back and forth to the city of Taklamakan from the cities of Silvest, Whisperdale and Krog.

New Quests - Players will have an array of quests which will allow them to discover the ancient mysteries of Artonia. Wondrous new items and rewards will be uncovered.

New Skill – The skill of RuneCrafting will allow players to construct magic runes and totems for use in spell casting and combat.

New Creatures – Players will find Artonia filled with new and fantastical creatures, including Battle Horned Vipers, Giant Burrowers and Sand Elementals. Players will discover many new and powerful boss creatures as they venture deep into the new dungeons that lie below Artonia.

The Sands of Creation expansion is scheduled for release by the end of Summer '06. Pricing is expected to be less than $15.00us.

  Talazars Revenge has been in place for several months. It was a greatly anticipated release to Ashen Empires. Alot of changes to existing skills, new skills, new monsters, alot of changes to be seen. Overall the best thing that they could have done with Ashen Empires.

I took a bit of time off due to RL issues taking hold of me, but I have returned (like most addicted players) and will be working on updating the site. Aaron Korr has agreed to help with the information and icons. Way too much stuff to get new icons made for me to ask Jin to do. Please be patient, while I work on gathering the correct info on some of the changed skills. Magery pages are on the bottom of the list, so dont expect them any time soon to be updated.

Since the release of TR, alot of new monsters have been added, along with new terrain and such. The Beastiary is actually further behind then the Magery. Sorry to say, unless I got some awesome help, I dont believe the Beastiary will be revived.

I suggest if you use the Dragoneers Den site to review skills, items and magery. Join our Guild Forums, supported and upkept by Foxy. Link is at the Left. I will constantly post the changes I make to site there, and also will have an index on site work being done. I will also keep the AE Boards updated on my progress also. Any help will be greatly welcomed.

Thanks for all being patient with me.

On the Test Server, Dragoneers are there along with the Alliance members. Alliance members we using the same chat we do on the Legends Server. If anyone of the Alliance wants D Tag or vice versa talk to the Guild Leaders of the apporiated Guilds. Also the main chat on Test server is umm ch:test. Keeps you updated on drops and items and bugs that are about. Remember: GMs are having us test various items, functions and such, its not a time to go PvP happy while you can.
