News:New spawnpoint for new players, new weapons/missions/locations

There's so much new content in and around Crystal Center! This new content adds to the backstory released in November, and creates more activities in Crystal Center.

New Spawnpoint for Starting Players

New players will spawn right next to the Crystal Center teleporter, in an area called Arrival Alley. Arthur's over at this new location, ready to greet new players, as usual.

New Weapons

Several versions of Slicers, Knives, Swords and Pistols have been added to the crafting loot pool. This release of offers ranged and melee weapons, Greek and tropical weapons. Greek swords, from a set named for Aristotle's virtues, require Greek crafting components. Next Island Pistols were developed by the Elysians, so you'll need Elysian tech.

I'll leave the names and stats for you to discover and enjoy!
