[Update] An Ethereal Journey

We are pleased to announce that Part III of the Shattered Obelisk is in the process of being activated.

This part is now active on Origin & Europa, and as we monitor the event it will become active on additional shards.  Siege will be active following its next scheduled maintenance.  This post will be updated as more shards become active.

See the Shattered Obelisk page for more details, EM support events and the latest fiction!

Update as of 4:45pm ET 8/29/2017:  Part III is now active on Atlantic.  If the monitoring period goes well, we will activate all shards at 8pm ET.  Thank you for your patience while we roll out the next phase of the arc.

Update 8/31/2017: Due to an unforeseen issue on Siege Perilous, Part III of the Shattered Obelisk will be available after Siege Perilous’ next maintenance on 9/1/2017.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Producer Note

Greetings Everyone,

I would like to address a very serious issue with you all.  As most of you are aware we have had players threaten other players that are coming to the 20th Anniversary Party.  We treat these issues incredibly seriously, and all harassment pages, including threats, are logged on the server.  We then forward these logs as a potential threat to law enforcement, who will follow up to the fullest extent of the law.  Please know we do not take this lightly.   For all of those that are worried regarding the 20th Anniversary Party the issue has been resolved and you should not have any concerns regarding your safety.

Thank You,

Bonnie “Mesanna” Armstrong
