OriginsRO Episode 0.4

Hello Players!

We're now ready to announce the next, long awaited, content update for OriginsRO!

Episode 0.4

Some Press Releases from the Kafra Headquarters:

Umbala

According to legend, there is a forgotten path somewhere near north Comodo. At the end of the path, there is a giant tree from which treasure springs forth. It has been said: "Men ruled by avarice will obtain treasure. But men who are not will be led to a new world."
After several years of research around Ruande and Zenhai Marsh, the long forgotten path has finally been found.
Through an old wooden bridge, over a canyon that makes you understand how small and insignificant humans can be, adventurers can reach a great jungle forest, so large that it almost envelopes the sky. Far into the jungle, there is a small tribal village full of people wearing strange masks who worship the Mother Tree. They call themselves the Utan Tribe of Umbala.
Rumors say that the Umbala Tree may be related to the Yggdrasil Tree, and adventurers may be able to reach another world through it.
The Kafra Corp. will provide teleportation service from and to Umbala, for adventurers and tourists alike.

War of Emperium

Following the recent friendship treaty with the Schwarzwald Republic, defense of the castles of the Rune-Midgarts Kingdom weakened.
Armies of monsters are marching and attempting to take control of the castles in all the major towns, causing a real threat to the Kingdom. "The castles and the treasures on them are properties for those who deserve them. And whoever control the castles with the legendary Emperium stone, will be considered the kingdom Knights of honor.", announced King Tristan Gaebolg III.
The Kafra HQ will offer a free contract with one of our employees, to be stationed within any castle whose Emperium is secured, to provide services to the controlling guild.

  • Quests: Most of the quests from, or related to, Umbala and Niflheim (including new headgears)

Note: Even though we decided to keep the 'beta' title for this episode, we're confident about the server's stability, so it's planned that NO WIPES will (ever) occur past this stage.
