From time to time a great force will threaten the lands of Caspia,
as a brave adventurer it invariably falls to you to vanquish this
threat. Invasions come in many forms, sometimes your homeland
will be threatened by vicious invaders, other times your assistance
will be requested in aiding lands far away.
The Purpose of Invasions
Invasions serve as a ground for adventurers to test their skills
against new and frequently more powerful foes. Invasions are run
by one or more Immortals who want to give the players something
fun to do, and frequently show off some impressive new coding. Above
all the purpose of an invasion is to offer fun to the players and
Course of an Invasion
Most invasions will be obviously introduced by some world shattering
event or an attack. At this point it is up to the adventurers to
determine the nature of their foe, and find a way to overcome typically
unfavorable odds. As the invasion progresses players will be offered
opportunities to figure out the motivation of their foes and eventually
seek a decisive victory by force or other means.
Why Should I Participate?
Invasions offer something out of the ordinary for adventurers, but
they are by no means required participation. People typically
participate in invasions for the opportunity to roleplay and bragging
rights about the tremendous feats accomplished. Other adventurers
join in the hopes of acquiring some sort of reward, others join to
help preserve the lands they know (as it is not unknown for an invading
force to radically alter cities and lands involved in an invasion). As
stated above however, the main reason to give it a try is for the sheer
fun of it.
