Veldan Spring Update
The next update will bring lots of new content to Ashen Empires; the introduction of the faction system and PVP changes, PvP Island, new quests, bosses, craftable mage gear, and new art for grass and trees. (More details about the update | Information about testing for this update).

Faction System
Will you aid Lotor in the battle to restore order and peace to the world of Dransik or will you cast your lot with the rogue armies of the great fallen Rune Warrior, Talazar? At the next update, those of you on the Heroes server will be able to sway the tide of battle for control of the land by proving your loyalty to one...or none. We would like to thank everyone who has given us feedback on the faction system. We are still going to work on implementing it in a way that makes sense for the L community, however, this will take some more time. (More details to come)

PvP Island
At the next update you will be able to battle other players on the new PvP Island! For every kill you will win tokens which you may use at the Pixel Mine Store. Even players from the Legends server can get into the action! (More details to come)

ToF Teaser
A shot of the boats in a rendered 3D environment, two-story houses, and the Great White Shark can be found here. (note: this is not exactly how the boats will appear in game)

Service Changes
On April 1st 2008, IWG handed off management and maintenace of the launcher, customer secure site, and community forums to Pixel Mine Games. If you have not yet switched over, instructions on how to do so can be found here. If you experiencing any difficulties with the new systems, please do not hesitate to contact support.
